Oct 21, 2014, 06:59 ET from United Technologies Corp.

HARTFORD, Conn., Oct. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX) reported third quarter earnings per share of $2.04 and net income attributable to common shareowners of $1.9 billion, up 32 percent and 31 percent respectively over the year ago quarter.  Results for the current quarter include $0.22 per share of favorable one-time items net of restructuring costs.  Earnings per share in the year ago quarter included $0.08 of restructuring costs and one-time items.  Excluding these items in both quarters, earnings per share increased 12 percent year over year.

Sales of $16.2 billion increased 5 percent, all driven by organic growth.  Third quarter segment operating profit increased 16 percent over the prior year, with operating margin of 17.5 percent.  Excluding restructuring costs and net one-time items, segment operating profit grew 8 percent with 60 basis points of operating margin expansion to 17.2 percent.  

"UTC delivered another quarter of solid performance," said Louis Chênevert, UTC Chairman & Chief Executive Officer.  "Along with strong margin expansion and a fifth consecutive quarter of organic sales growth, we've seen increased demand for our integrated building solutions and revenue synergy opportunities for our Building & Industrial Systems businesses.  We also achieved a number of significant program milestones that position UTC for long-term growth. These include supporting the first flight of the Airbus A320neo with Pratt & Whitney's new Geared Turbofan engines and unveiling Sikorsky's next-generation S-97 Raider helicopter."

Otis new equipment orders in the quarter increased 4 percent over the prior year at constant currency.  Equipment orders at UTC Climate, Controls & Security increased 5 percent excluding early order activity ahead of next year's SEER-14 standard change.  Large commercial engine spares orders were up 1 percent at Pratt & Whitney and commercial spares orders increased 11 percent at UTC Aerospace Systems.  Commercial aftermarket sales were up 7 percent and 10 percent at Pratt & Whitney and UTC Aerospace Systems, respectively. 

"With double-digit earnings and 4 percent organic sales growth through the first three quarters, UTC remains on track to deliver on our expectations for the year," said Chênevert. "Our solid backlog and organic growth trends continue to give us confidence in our earnings per share range of $6.75 to $6.85, on sales of about $65 billion."

Cash flow from operations was $1.9 billion and capital expenditures were $415 million in the quarter. Share repurchase was $425 million.  UTC now expects share repurchase of $1.5 billion for the year, up from the previous expectation of $1.35 billion.  As a result of ongoing investment to support the aerospace upcycle, the company continues to anticipate 2014 cash flow from operations less capital expenditures of about 90 percent of net income attributable to common shareowners.

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.
