The restructuring charge relates primarily to headcount actions the company is taking as a result of certain challenging market conditions, particularly in business aviation.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2016, the Federal R&D Tax Credit was permanently reinstated retroactive to January 1, 2015, resulting in the recognition of an 18 cent retroactive benefit.

As the Federal R&D Tax Credit has been permanently reinstated, the company will also benefit from the Federal R&D Tax Credit throughout fiscal year 2016. As a result, the company is raising its earnings per share guidance by 25 cents due to the benefit of the Federal R&D Tax Credit which is partially offset by higher restructuring and incentive compensation expense.

In addition, the company is increasing its cash flow from operations guidance by $50 million for fiscal year 2016.
