Textron Aviation Q2 Earning Report: Revenues Down, Segment Profit UpPosted by KingAirNation — Monday, August 12, 2019
Revenues at Textron Aviation of $1.1 billion were down $153 million from last year’s second quarter, primarily due to lower volume and mix across the commercial turboprop and defense product lines.
“Operationally, we continued to have solid margin performance across our businesses with improvements in the quarter at Aviation and Industrial, and we remain on track for growth in the second half of the year,” said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly.
Textron Aviation delivered 46 jets, down from 48 last year, and 34 commercial turboprops, down from 47 last year.
Segment profit was $105 million in the second quarter, up $1 million from a year ago as favorable performance was offset by the lower volume and mix.
Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the second quarter was $1.9 billion.
