"The Company had strong second quarter operating results, with bookings, sales, operating margin, earnings per share, and cash flow all ahead of our expectations," said Thomas A. Kennedy, Raytheon Chairman and CEO. "We begin the second half of 2016 with continued confidence in our growth outlook, and we have increased our guidance for earnings and cash flow as a result of our strong year-to-date performance."

Operating cash flow from continuing operations for the second quarter 2016 was $746 million compared to $376 million for the second quarter 2015. The increase in operating cash flow from continuing operations in the second quarter 2016 was primarily due to the timing of payments and cash taxes, as well as lower required pension contributions. The second quarter 2015 included the collection of $226 million from the eBorders settlement.

The Company had bookings of $7.1 billion in the second quarter 2016, resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 1.18 in the quarter. Second quarter 2015 bookings were $7.6 billion. Year-to-date 2016 bookings were $13.3 billion, resulting in a book-to-bill ratio of 1.13. Year-to-date 2015 bookings were $12.1 billion.

As a result of the transaction, Raytheon made a net cash payment to Thales in the amount of $90 million and recorded a tax-free gain of $158 million or $0.53 per diluted share in its second quarter financial results.
