Item 8.01 Other Events

Textron announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to sell its Tools& Test business to Emerson, a global technology and engineering company, for approximately $810 million in cash. Included in the sale are all the Textron Tools& Test businesses and brands — Greenlee, Greenlee Communications, Greenlee Utility, HD Electric, Klauke, Sherman+Reilly, and Endura. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, and is expected to close during the third quarter of 2018. Proceeds from the sale are expected to be used to fund additional share repurchases to offset the earnings impact related to the sale.

In connection with approving the divestiture, on April16, 2018, Textron’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to 40 million shares of the company’s common stock. This repurchase plan is sufficient for repurchases related to the Tools& Test divestiture as well as to continue the company’s practice of repurchasing shares to offset the impact of dilution from stock-based compensation and benefit plans, and for opportunistic capital management purposes. The new authorization replaces a previous one, approved in January2017, which was nearing completion.
