Rockwell Collins: “Our focus on increasing efficiencies across our business drove strong operating performance, including 21% operating margins, a 16% improvement in operating cash flow, and a 10% improvement in earnings per share, while allowing us to sustain our investments in R&D in support of long-term growth objectives. We addressed the uncertainty of sequestration by incorporating the anticipated impacts into our plan and taking early action on our cost structure. These actions should also generate the savings necessary to sustain margins despite another year of continued headwinds in our government business in fiscal 2014,” Kelly Ortberg, CEO.
