Rockwell Collins: “Both business segments are expected to experience growth in the second half of the year, but at a lower level than previously expected. However, our focus on controlling cost in a volatile environment should still allow us to achieve full year earnings per share in the range of USD4.40 to USD4.60,” Clay Jones, chairman, president and CEO.
