Rockwell Collins Q2 2014 total sales $1.27 billion
Total segment operating earnings for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 were $254 million, an increase of $25 million, or 11%, from the same period a year ago. Second quarter fiscal year 2014 earnings per share from continuing operations were $1.07 and net income was $147 million compared to earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.17 and net income of $161 million in the second quarter of last year.
Prior year net income included a $31 million, or $0.22 per share, benefit from the retroactive reinstatement of the Federal Research & Development Tax Credit, which expired on December 31, 2013.
ARINC, which was acquired on December 23, 2013, contributed $137 million of sales and $17 million of operating earnings to the second quarter of 2014. Rockwell Collins expects the ARINC portion of Information Management Services' fiscal year 2014 operating margin to be in the range of 11% to 12%, (from 9% to 10%), due primarily to lower than previously estimated intangible asset amortization expense. ■
