Textron’s Sales Up 3% in Q2

Textron (NYSE: TXT), Providence, RI,  reported total revenues of $3.7 billion for the second quarter of 2018, up 3 percent compared with the second quarter of 2017.

Sales in Textron’s industrial segment increased nearly 10 percent during the quarter, to $1.2 billion, largely related to higher volumes across all of its product lines and a favorable impact from foreign exchange, the company said. Segment profit was down $2 million.

Looking ahead, the company said it expects a one-time gain of approximately $400 million from the sale of its Tools & Test business in the third quarter.
