UTC Reports Second Quarter EPS Growth From Continuing Operations of 15 Percent; Expects 2012 EPS of $5.25 to $5.35 on Sales of $58 Billion to $59 Billion and Increases Restructuring

HARTFORD, Conn., July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX) today reported second quarter 2012 results. All results in this release reflect continuing operations unless otherwise noted.

Earnings per share of $1.62 and net income attributable to common shareowners of $1.5 billion, were up 15 percent and 14 percent, respectively, over the year ago quarter.  Results for the current quarter include $0.10 per share of net favorable one-time items, partially offset by $0.06 of restructuring costs.  Earnings per share in the year ago quarter included $0.05 per share of net favorable one-time items, partially offset by $0.04 of restructuring costs.  Before these items, earnings per share increased 13 percent year over year.  The effective tax rate for the quarter was 22.5 percent. Foreign currency translation, and hedges at Pratt & Whitney Canada, had an adverse impact of $0.05.

United Technologies completed the acquisition of Rolls Royce's interests in International Aero Engines on June 29.  For its proposed acquisition of Goodrich Corporation, United Technologies anticipates receiving full regulatory approval today and closing the acquisition by the end of this week.

"The Goodrich and IAE transactions better position UTC to serve the growing aerospace market," said Louis Chenevert, UTC Chairman & Chief Executive Officer.

"We are concluding on the substantial transformational changes to our portfolio that will generate shareholder value well into the future."

Sales for the quarter of $13.8 billion were 5 percent below prior year.  Organic sales increased 1 percent over the year ago quarter, while net divestitures and foreign currency translation each had an adverse impact of 3 points.  Combined, net divestitures and foreign currency translation accounted for $0.8 billion of the sales decline.

Second quarter segment operating margin at 16.5 percent was 70 basis points higher than prior year.  Adjusted for restructuring costs and net one-time items, segment operating margin at 16.4 percent was 80 basis points higher than prior year.  Research and development costs increased $31 million in the quarter to $525 million. Cash flow from operations was $1.7 billion and capital expenditures were $244 million in the quarter.

"UTC delivered solid operating performance while sustaining our investment in game-changing technology in the face of a challenging economic environment," Chenevert added.

New equipment orders at Otis were down 7 percent over the year ago second quarter, including unfavorable foreign exchange of 3 percentage points.  North American Residential HVAC new equipment orders at UTC Climate, Controls & Security grew 4 percent.  Commercial spares orders were down 15 percent at Pratt & Whitney's large engine business and down 10 percent at Hamilton Sundstrand.

"In light of the slowing global economy, a weaker Euro that we now assume to be in the range of $1.20 for the remainder of the year, and late July close for Goodrich, we now expect 2012 sales of $58 billion to $59 billion," Chenevert added. "We expect earnings per share of $5.25 to $5.35, versus our prior expectation of $5.30 to $5.50. As always, we will focus on cost reduction and strong execution. We are increasing our investment in restructuring this year to $500 million, up from our prior plan of $450 million, and continue to expect net one-time gains of $600 million."

UTC continues to expect cash flow from operations less capital expenditures to meet or exceed net income attributable to common shareowners for the year. The company does not anticipate share repurchase in 2012 and has a placeholder of $500 million for acquisitions excluding the Goodrich transaction. UTC continues to expect a full year effective tax rate of 29.5 percent, excluding Goodrich and one-time items.

Earnings per share from discontinued operations were a loss of $0.15 in the quarter.  Results included a $179 million pre-tax impairment charge associated with the UTC Power business, which was moved to discontinued operations in the second quarter, as well as a reserve for potential warranty costs associated with the Clipper business.

Details of the non-recurring items for the quarters and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 are as follows:

Quarter Ended June 30, 2012

UTC Climate, Controls & Security:  Approximately $110 million net gain from UTC Climate, Controls & Security's ongoing portfolio transformation.  This net gain includes approximately $142 million from the sale of a controlling interest in its Canadian distribution business, partially offset by a $32 million loss on the disposition of its U.S. fire and security branch operations.

Non-Recurring items included in Discontinued Operations:

  • Approximately $179 million pre-tax impairment charge related to net assets as a result of the decision to dispose of the UTC Power business.
  • Approximately $91 million reserve for potential warranty costs associated with certain components of wind turbines previously installed by our Clipper business.

Quarter Ended March 31, 2012

UTC Climate, Controls & Security:  Approximately $112 million net gain from UTC Climate, Controls & Security's ongoing portfolio transformation.  This net gain includes approximately $215 million from the sale of a controlling interest in a manufacturing and distribution joint venture in Asia, partially offset by $103 million of impairment charges related to planned business dispositions.

Eliminations and other:  An additional $10 million of reserves were established for the export licensing compliance matters recorded in the fourth quarter 2011.

Non-Recurring item included in Interest Expense, Net:  Approximately $15 million of favorable pre-tax interest adjustments related to the conclusion of the IRS's examination of the Company's 2006 – 2008 tax years.

Non-Recurring item included in Income Tax Expense:  Approximately $203 million of favorable income tax adjustments related to the conclusion of the IRS's examination of the Company's 2006 – 2008 tax years.

Non-Recurring items included in Discontinued Operations:

  • Approximately $360 million and $590 million of pre-tax goodwill impairment charges ($220 million and $410 million after tax) related to Rocketdyne and Clipper, respectively.
  • Approximately $235 million of unfavorable income tax adjustments related to the recognition of a deferred tax liability on the existing difference between the expected accounting versus tax gain on the planned disposition of Hamilton Sundstrand's Industrial Businesses.

Quarter Ended June 30, 2011

Sikorsky:  Approximately $73 million gain recognized from the contribution of a business into a new venture in the United Arab Emirates.

The following page provides segment net sales, operating profits and operating profit margins as adjusted for the aforementioned restructuring costs and non-recurring items.  Management believes these adjusted results more accurately portray the ongoing operational performance and fundamentals of the underlying businesses.  The amount and timing of restructuring costs and non-recurring activity can vary substantially from period to period with no assurances of comparable activity or amounts being incurred in future periods.  These amounts have therefore been adjusted out in the following schedule in order to provide a more representative comparison of current year operating performance to prior year performance.

United Technologies Corporation
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(1) Debt to total capitalization equals total debt divided by total debt plus equity.  Net debt to net capitalization equals total debt less cash and cash equivalents divided by total debt plus equity less cash and cash equivalents.

(2) Organic sales growth represents the total reported increase within the Corporation's ongoing businesses less the impact of foreign currency translation, acquisitions and divestitures completed in the preceding twelve months and significant non-recurring items.

(3) Free cash flow, which represents cash flow from operations less capital expenditures, is the principal cash performance measure used by UTC. Management believes free cash flow provides a relevant measure of liquidity and a useful basis for assessing UTC's ability to fund its activities, including the financing of acquisitions, debt service, repurchases of UTC's common stock and distribution of earnings to shareholders.  Other companies that use the term free cash flow may calculate it differently.  The reconciliation of net cash flow provided by operating activities, prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, to free cash flow is shown above.

(4) Prior period amounts reported within these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been restated for:

  • The combination of the financial results of the former Carrier and UTC Fire & Security segments into a new segment called UTC Climate, Controls & Security; and
  • Discontinued operations related to a plan for the divestiture of a number of non-core businesses.
