(NYS: TXT) ("Textron") announced today that its 4.5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2013 (CUSIP #883203BN0) (the "Notes") will be convertible at the option of the holders through March 31, 2013, the last day of the first calendar quarter, as provided in the Indenture, dated as of September 10, 1999, between Textron and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as Trustee, as supplemented by the Supplemental Indenture, dated as of May 5, 2009 (the "Indenture").
