- Net sales of $6.0 billion, up 3.4 percent

WALTHAM, Mass., April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) today announced net sales for the first quarter 2017 of $6.0 billion, up 3.4 percent compared to $5.8 billion in the first quarter 2016. First quarter 2017 EPS from continuing operations was $1.73, up 21.0 percent compared to $1.43 in the first quarter 2016. The increase in the first quarter 2017 EPS from continuing operations was primarily driven by operational improvements.

"Solid revenue growth and margin expansion drove strong earnings per share performance in the first quarter, with all of our businesses meeting or exceeding expectations," said Thomas A. Kennedy, Raytheon Chairman and CEO. "Our focus on global growth and operational excellence, combined with our balanced capital deployment strategy, continues to create value for our customers and shareholders."

Operating cash flow from continuing operations for the first quarter 2017 was an outflow of $41 million compared to an inflow of $325 million for the first quarter 2016. The change in operating cash flow from continuing operations in the first quarter 2017 was primarily due to the timing of collections.

As previously reported, effective January 1, 2017, the company adopted the new revenue recognition standard utilizing the full retrospective transition method. The impact of adopting the new standard on the company's 2016 net sales and operating income was not material. All 2016 financial results have been recast to reflect this change.

1 Deferred Revenue Adjustment and Amortization of Acquired Intangibles represent the unfavorable impact of the acquisition accounting adjustments to record acquired deferred revenue at fair value and the amortization of acquired intangible assets for all business segments.

2 Full-year 2017 EPS from continuing operations now includes the expected unfavorable $0.05 net EPS impact in non-operating income associated with the $40 million ($0.09 EPS) impact related to the early retirement of debt in Q2 2017, partially offset by the expected interest expense reduction related to the retirement of the associated debt primarily in the second half of 2017.
