Rockwell Collins: "We are off to a solid start in this year of transition for our company and should see improving performance throughout the year. Fortunately, we had already incorporated the impact of sequestration in our annual guidance and expect a greater benefit from our FY12 restructuring actions in subsequent quarters as well. Therefore, we are increasingly confident that we can meet or exceed our financial expectations,” Clay Jones, Chairman and CEO. Source: Company statement, 18-Jan-2013.
