PROVIDENCE, R.I. - For the first quarter 2017 Textron reported that revenues were $3.1 billion, down 3.4 percent from $3.2 billion in the first quarter of 2016. Net income for the quarter was $101 million compared to $150 million in the year ago period.

"Overall, revenues and profit were down in the quarter consistent with our expectations," said Textron Chairman and CEO Scott C. Donnelly. "We are continuing to execute our restructuring plan while maintaining our focus on new product investment and the integration of acquired businesses, all of which will have a positive impact on our long term growth outlook."

INDUSTRY SEGMENTS

Textron Aviation

Revenues at Textron Aviation were down to $970 million (1Q16: $1.1 billion), primarily due to lower military and commercial turboprop volumes.

Textron Aviation delivered 35 new Citation jets, up from 34 jets last year, 12 King Air turboprops compared to 26 in last year’s first quarter, and 2 Beechcraft T-6 trainers, down from 9 last year.

Textron Aviation recorded a segment profit of $36 million in the first quarter compared to $73 million a year ago, primarily due to lower volume and mix.

Textron Aviation backlog at the end of the first quarter was $1.0 billion, approximately flat from the end of the fourth quarter.

Bell backlog at the end of the first quarter was $5.7 billion, up $292 million from the end of the fourth quarter.

Revenues at Textron Systems increased to $416 million (1Q16: $324 million), primarily due to higher volume at Weapons and Sensors and Marine and Land Systems.
