On July 26, a report on the work for Q2 was published, reflecting revenue growth to 16.31B dollars from 15.27B dollars in the previous period. Earnings per share were 1.16 dollars, up from 1.15 dollars a quarter earlier. Updated statistics will be released on November 1, and analysts expect to see growth in revenue due to increased demand for American weapons because of the escalation of the military conflict in Ukraine. The fact is that the US defense industry has managed to significantly reduce its outdated arsenal, which can now be replaced with more modern and expensive weapons. Thus, the company expects to receive up to 17.36B dollars in revenue, which significantly exceeds 16.0B dollars in the same period a year earlier.
