International customer signs agreement with USG valued at $750 M for Raytheon's TOW missiles

An international customer signed an agreement with the U.S. Government for a foreign military sale (FMS) of tube-launched, optically tracked, wireless-guided (TOW) missiles to be supplied by Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) in a deal valued at approximately $750 million.

Raytheon plans to deliver nearly 14,000 TOW missiles to the customer over a three-year period beginning in 2015. A resulting order is expected to be executed by the U.S. government with Raytheon in the coming weeks.

The order will allow Raytheon to further increase TOW's capability while delivering affordable precision to a key U.S. ally for the defense of its borders and sovereignty. This type of multiyear FMS arrangement drives down acquisition costs for the U.S. government and provides economies of scale.
