Financial Performance

Revenue in 2019 spiked up by 16% to $77 billion compared with $66.5 billion the previous year. The increase in revenue was primarily driven by higher sales in Collins Aerospace Systems.

Strategy

As part of the company's globalization strategy, it have invested in certain countries, including Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Turkey, Ukraine and countries in the Middle East and Central Asia, that carry high levels of currency, political, compliance and economic risk. Raytheon Technologies expects that sales to these and other emerging markets will continue to account for a significant portion of its sales as the company's businesses evolve and as these and other developing nations and regions around the world increase its demand for Raytheon's products.

Raytheon Technologies seeks to grow through strategic acquisitions in addition to internal growth. In the past several years, the company made various acquisitions, including the acquisition of Rockwell Collins in November 2018, and have entered into joint ventures intended to complement and expand its businesses. The company expects to continue to undertake such transactions in the future.

Mergers and Acquisitions

In early 2020, Raytheon Technologies Corporation, a Waltham, Massachussets-based aerospace and defense company, completed the all-stock merger of equals transaction with United Technologies Corporation, following the completion by United Technologies of its previously announced spin-offs of its Carrier and Otis businesses.

Company Background

United Technologies dates back to 1929 when William Boeing of Boeing Firms and Frederick Rentschler of Pratt & Whitney formed the United Aircraft and Transport Corporation. United Aircraft soon bought aviation companies Hamilton Aero, Standard Steel Propeller, and Sikorsky.

United Aircraft split in 1934 into three independent entities: United Airlines, Boeing Airplane Company, and United Aircraft. United Aircraft retained Pratt & Whitney and several other manufacturing interests. In 1975, the company changed its name to United Technologies Corporation, representing the intent to diversify into other fields in addition to the aerospace industry.
