Rockwell Collins: "I really do feel that the worst of the recession impact may be behind…although revenues declined on a year-over-year basis we realized an increase in operating cash flow through working capital performance and minimized the impact to operating margins through effective cost containment. Improvements in commercial aerospace conditions and general developments in the formulation of defense budgets world-wide reinforce my confidence that we should see sequential growth in sales and profitability throughout the year which will allow us to achieve our full year forecast,” Clay Jones, Chairman, President & CEO.
