“Our second-quarter results reflect our relentless focus on driving down costs and improving performance,” said Phebe Novakovic, chairman and chief executive officer. “That focus on performance remains unwavering as we ramp up production of new aircraft, begin construction of both a new block and new class of submarines, and solidify our market-leading position in Information Technology.”
