The increase was primarily driven by operational improvements and capital deployment actions. Third quarter 2012 EPS from continuing operations was $1.51 compared to $1.42 in the third quarter 2011. Third quarter 2012 included an unfavorable FAS/CAS Adjustment of $0.09, compared with an unfavorable FAS/CAS Adjustment of $0.14 in the third quarter 2011. Third quarter 2011 also included a $0.17 per diluted share favorable tax settlement."Raytheon's strong operating performance in the third quarter reflects our continued focus on reducing cost, and increasing productivity," said William H. Swanson, Raytheon's Chairman and CEO. "Our bookings in the quarter were strong, and we have significant opportunities in both domestic and international markets for our innovative technologies and affordable solutions."____________________________________ 1 Adjusted EPS is EPS from continuing operations attributable to Raytheon Company common stockholders and Adjusted Operating Margin is total operating margin, in each case, excluding the impact of the FAS/CAS Adjustment, and from time to time, certain other items.  Q3 2011 Adjusted EPS also excludes the impact of the favorable tax settlement as discussed above.

See attachment F for a reconciliation of this measure and a discussion of why the Company is presenting this information.Although it remains uncertain if sequestration under the Budget Control Act (BCA) will be implemented, sequestration could have a significant impact on the U.S. Military, the Aerospace and Defense Industry and Federal spending. Several industry associations estimate that sequestration, if implemented, could have a severe impact on U.S. Aerospace and Defense Industry employment nationwide. We believe that Raytheon's large international market presence, portfolio of programs, technology and focus on high priority areas should help to mitigate some of the potential overall impact.Segment ResultsThe Company's reportable segments are: Integrated Defense Systems, Intelligence and Information Systems, Missile Systems, Network Centric Systems, Space and Airborne Systems, and Technical Services.Integrated Defense Systems3rd QuarterNine Months($ in millions)20122011% Change20122011% ChangeNet Sales$1,275$1,1768%$3,716$3,6671%Operating Income$240$20418%$692$60015%Operating Margin18.8%17.3%18.6%16.4%Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) had third quarter 2012 net sales of $1,275 million, up 8 percent compared to $1,176 million in the third quarter 2011.

global tax rate.(3)These amounts are not measures of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  They should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial performance in accordance with GAAP and may not be defined and calculated by other companies in the same manner. These amounts exclude the FAS/CAS Adjustment and, from time to time, certain other items. We are providing these measures because management uses them for the purposes of evaluating and forecasting the Company's financial performance and believes that they provide additional insights into the Company's underlying business performance. We also believe that they allow investors to benefit from being able to assess our operating performance in the context of how our principal customer, the U.S. Government, allows us to recover pension and PRB costs and to better compare our operating performance to others in the industry on that same basis. Amounts may not recalculate directly due to rounding.(4)Adjusted EPS is diluted EPS from continuing operations attributable to Raytheon Company common stockholders excluding the EPS impact of the FAS/CAS Adjustment and, from time to time, certain other items. In addition to the FAS/CAS Adjustment, nine months ended 2011 Adjusted EPS also excludes the impact of the UKBA LOC Adjustment, as previously disclosed. This adjustment was based on the UKBA's decision to draw down on the previously disclosed letters of credit provided by Raytheon Systems Limited (RSL). The determination of the validity of the draw down is now a subject of the ongoing arbitration proceedings related to the UKBA program. Three months and nine months ended 2011 Adjusted EPS also excludes the earnings per share impact of a favorable tax settlement in the third quarter of 2011 as a result of our receipt of final approval from the IRS and the U.S. Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation of the IRS examination of our tax returns for the 2006-2008 tax years.(5)Adjusted Income is income from continuing operations attributable to Raytheon Company common stockholders excluding the after-tax impact of the FAS/CAS Adjustment and, from time to time, certain other items. In addition to the FAS/CAS Adjustment, nine months ended 2011 Adjusted Income also excludes the after-tax impact of the UKBA LOC Adjustment, as described above. Three months and nine months ended 2011 Adjusted Income also excludes the impact of the favorable tax settlement in the third quarter of 2011, as described above.(6)Adjusted Operating Margin is defined as total operating margin excluding the margin impact of the FAS/CAS Adjustment and, from time to time, certain other items. In addition to the FAS/CAS Adjustment, nine months ended 2011 Adjusted Operating Margin also excludes the impact of the UKBA LOC Adjustment, as described above. Investor Relations ContactTodd Ernst781.522.5141Media ContactJon Kasle781.522.5110SOURCE Raytheon Company
