Lockheed Martin 2Q profit falls 10 percent
BETHESDA, Md. -- Lockheed Martin Corp. says its second-quarter profit dropped 10 percent, burdened by a charge tied to some job cuts and a pension adjustment. But its results still topped analysts' expectations.
The aerospace and defense contractor also raised its 2011 earnings forecasts on Tuesday.
Lockheed reported net income of $742 million, or $2.14 per share, for the quarter ended June 26. That's down from $824 million, or $2.22 per share, a year earlier.
The job cuts-related charge lowered earnings by 18 cents per share, while the pension adjustment reduced earnings by 41 cents per share.
Analysts predicted earnings of $1.94 per share.
Revenue rose 2 percent to $11.55 billion from $11.28 billion, topping Wall Street's estimate of $11.45 billion.
Last month Lockheed Martin said it planned to cut 1,200 employees in its space systems equipment division.
