- Expected 2015 EPS from continuing operations revised, now $6.15 to $6.30

Jul 21, 2015, 07:00 ET from United Technologies Corp.

HARTFORD, Conn., July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX) today reported second quarter earnings per share of $1.73 and net income attributable to common shareowners of $1.5 billion, down 6 percent and 8 percent respectively versus the prior year.  Results for the current quarter include unfavorable one-time items and restructuring charges of $0.08 per share.  Net favorable one-time items offset restructuring costs in the second quarter of last year.  Excluding these items in both quarters, earnings per share of $1.81 decreased 2 percent year over year.  Foreign currency had an unfavorable impact of $0.06.

Sales of $16.3 billion decreased by 5 percent, reflecting the impact of adverse foreign exchange (4 points) and absence of the prior year Sikorsky Canadian Maritime Helicopter Program adjustment (5 points), which were partially offset by the benefit of organic growth (3 points) and acquisitions (1 point) in 2015. Second quarter segment operating profit increased 21 percent over the prior year quarter.  Adjusted for restructuring costs and net one-time items, segment operating profit was down 3 percent.

"Through the first half of the year, the businesses delivered 3 percent organic sales growth in what continues to be a slow growth global economy.  This solid growth contributed to a 6 percent increase in EPS on a constant currency basis, excluding the impact of gains and restructuring," said Gregory Hayes, UTC President and Chief Executive Officer. "Continued strength in the U.S. dollar has had a significant adverse impact on our results this year."

Otis new equipment orders in the quarter increased 5 percent over the prior year at constant currency, with growth in the Americas and in EMEA offset by a 10 percent orders decline in China. At UTC Climate, Controls & Security, equipment orders increased 4 percent, with growth in U.S. residential HVAC and Transicold offset by a 15 percent orders decline in China.  Commercial aerospace aftermarket sales were up 1 percent at Pratt & Whitney and flat at UTC Aerospace Systems on an organic basis.  Provisioning and repair sales at UTC Aerospace Systems were down in the quarter, but those declines were partially offset by high single digit growth in spare parts sales. 

"With six months of trends behind us, it is now clear the commercial aftermarket at UTC Aerospace Systems will be significantly below our expectations for the year," Hayes added. "This, along with continuing softness in Otis Europe and a slowing China, led us to reassess our 2015 outlook for UTC Aerospace Systems and Otis.   We now expect 2015 operating profit at UTC Aerospace Systems to be down $25 to $75 million and at Otis to be down $25 to $75 million at constant currency. Including the adverse impact of FX, we expect profit at Otis to be down $300 to $350 million compared to prior year."

"While this revised forecast is disappointing, we remain confident in our long term outlook for the business. We have industry leading franchises, strong recurring revenue streams and have focused our portfolio on attractive end markets.  We will accelerate aggressive cost reduction across the businesses and look for additional structural cost actions that can drive earnings growth well into the future. We will also look to deploy additional capital to share repurchase and M&A," Hayes continued.

As announced yesterday, UTC has reached an agreement to sell Sikorsky to Lockheed Martin for $9 billion, subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions. As a result, Sikorsky will be reported in discontinued operations beginning in the third quarter.  The company now expects full year EPS of $6.45 to $6.60 from operations including Sikorsky, but excluding an expected gain related to its sale. Expectations from continuing operations are now $6.15 to $6.30. This is down from the previous expectations of $6.55 to $6.85 and $6.35 to $6.55, respectively.  Sales expectations from continuing operations have also been revised to $57 to $58 billion from the prior expectation of $58 to $59 billion. The revised expectations reflect approximately 3 percent organic sales growth. 

Cash flow from operations was $1.5 billion and capital expenditures were $358 million in the quarter. UTC continues to assume a $1 billion placeholder for full year acquisition spend and expects cash flow from operations less capital expenditures in the range of 90 to 100 percent of net income from continuing operations attributable to common shareowners for 2015.

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.
