Honeywell Delivers $1.80 Earnings Per Share; Sales of $10.1 Billion Exceeds Guidance

- Reported Sales Up 1%, Organic Sales Up Over 3% Driven By Performance In Aerospace Aftermarket, Advanced Materials, And Home And Building Products

- Invested More Than $115 Million In Restructuring Projects To Drive Growth And Productivity

- Year-To-Date Operating Cash Flow Up 25% And Free Cash Flow Up 39%

- Raising Full-Year Sales Guidance; Raising Low-End Of 2017 EPS Guidance By 10 Cents To $7.00 - $7.10

MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., July 21, 2017 -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2017 and updated its full-year 2017 sales and earnings guidance.

"Honeywell's strong performance continued through the second quarter, with over 3% organic sales growth that exceeded the high end of our guidance range, and 50 basis points of segment margin expansion, resulting in second-quarter earnings per share of $1.80," said Darius Adamczyk, President and Chief Executive Officer of Honeywell. "Earnings came in at the high end of our guidance range, up 10%? year-over-year. We continued our investments to enhance future profitable growth through new product introductions, additions to the sales organization, and more than $115 million of restructuring funding in the quarter, made possible by a lower-than-planned tax rate. Quarterly free cash flow of $1.2 billion was impacted by the timing of cash tax payments, and our first-half performance remained strong with nearly 40% growth in free cash flow year-over-year."

"Previous investments in production capacity are driving top-line growth. For example, our newly completed facilities within Performance Materials and Technologies are contributing to double-digit growth for our Solstice® line of low-global-warming products and strong orders, sales, and backlog growth in UOP," continued Adamczyk. "We are also pleased with the continued strength in Aerospace Commercial Aftermarket and in Safety and Productivity Solutions, where we continue to see strong demand for safety products and voice-enabled workflow solutions."

"We expect continued momentum in organic sales growth throughout 2017, supported by strong order rates and a growing backlog across many of our businesses," said Adamczyk. "Our focus on delivering organic growth while maintaining productivity rigor and aggressively deploying capital, combined with our efforts to evolve as a world-class software-industrial company, is delivering results for our shareowners."

"We are increasing our full-year reported and organic sales guidance and raising the low end of our full-year earnings guidance by 10 cents. We now anticipate 2017 earnings per share to be between $7.00 and $7.10, up 8%-10%, excluding divestitures, any pension mark-to-market adjustments, and 2016 debt refinancing charges. We also now expect full-year sales to be between $39.3 billion and $40.0 billion, up 2%-4% organic," Adamczyk concluded.

Honeywell will discuss the results during its investor conference call today starting at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Second Quarter Performance

Honeywell sales for the second quarter were up over 3% on an organic basis and up 1% on a reported basis. The difference between reported and organic sales is the impact of foreign currency translation, the 2016 spin-off of the former Resins and Chemicals business in Performance Materials and Technologies, and the 2016 divestiture of the Aerospace government services business, partially offset by the Intelligrated acquisition in Safety and Productivity Solutions. The second-quarter financial results can be found in Tables 1 and 2, and updated full-year guidance can be found in Table 3, below.

Aerospace sales for the second quarter were up 2% on an organic basis driven by strength in Commercial Aftermarket, growth in U.S. defense, and a continuing recovery in commercial vehicles in Transportation Systems. Segment margin expanded 140 bps to 22.3%, primarily driven by higher volumes, productivity net of inflation, and the favorable impact of the 2016 divestiture of the government services business.

Home and Building Technologies sales for the second quarter were up 4% on an organic basis driven by Smart Energy program roll-outs, air and water product sales in China, and continued growth in the Distribution business. Segment margin was unchanged at 15.4%, driven by restructuring benefits and productivity net of inflation, offset by the unfavorable impact of higher sales from lower margin products and investments for growth.

Performance Materials and Technologies sales for the second quarter were up 6% on an organic basis driven by continued strength in Solstice® sales in Advanced Materials and double-digit growth in modular gas processing in UOP. Segment margin expanded 200 bps to 23.4%, primarily driven by productivity net of inflation, the favorable impact from the spin-off of the former Resins and Chemicals business, and commercial excellence.

Safety and Productivity Solutions sales for the second quarter were up 1% on an organic basis as a result of higher volumes in industrial safety products, sensing controls, and voice-enabled workflow solutions. Segment margin contracted 70 bps to 15.0%, primarily driven by acquisition amortization and integration costs, and investments for growth. Excluding the impact of acquisitions, segment margin expanded 90 bps driven primarily by restructuring benefits and productivity net of inflation.

We believe that this metric is useful to investors and management as a measure of cash generated by business operations that will be used to repay scheduled debt maturities and
can be used to invest in future growth through new business development activities or acquisitions, pay dividends, repurchase stock or repay debt obligations prior to their maturities.
This metric can also be used to evaluate our ability to generate cash flow from business operations and the impact that this cash flow has on our liquidity.

A quantitative reconciliation of reported sales percent change to organic sales percent change has not been provided for forward-looking measures of organic sales percent
change because management cannot reliably predict or estimate, without unreasonable effort, the fluctuations in global currency markets that impact foreign currency translation,
nor is it reasonable for management to predict the timing, occurrence and impact of acquisition and divestiture transactions, all of which could significantly impact our reported sales percent change.

(1) Earnings per share attributable to 2016 divestitures uses a blended tax rate of 32.3% for three months ended June 30, 2016.
(2) The Company has and continues to have an ongoing level of restructuring activities, for which there is a planned amount of restructuring-related charges. 
Additional restructuring represents only amounts that are incremental to those planned restructuring amounts.  For the three months ended June 30, 2017, the
Company funded $117 million of restructuring, $90 million of which was incremental to the planned amount.  This additional restructuring was enabled by a lower
than expected effective tax rate for the period.  We believe that the exclusion of this additional restructuring provides a more comparable measure of year-on-year
results.  Earnings per share attributable to additional restructuring uses a tax rate of 25% for three months ended June 30, 2017.
We believe earnings per share adjusted to normalize for the expected effective tax rate of 25% for the most recently completed fiscal quarter (as presented in prior

guidance for such quarter) and to exclude the 2016 divestitures is a measure that is useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends.

We believe these measures are useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends.
A quantitative reconciliation of segment profit, on an overall Honeywell basis, to operating income has not been provided for forward-looking measures of
segment profit and segment margin included herewithin.  Management cannot reliably predict or estimate, without unreasonable effort, the impact and timing
on future operating results arising from items excluded from segment profit, particularly pension mark-to-market expense as it is dependent on macroeconomic factors,
such as interest rates and the return generated on invested pension plan assets.  The information that is unavailable to provide a quantitative reconciliation could have a
significant impact on our reported financial results.  To the extent quantitative information becomes available without unreasonable effort in the future, and closer to the
period to which the forward-looking measures pertain, a reconciliation of segment profit to operating income will be included within future filings.

(1) Utilizes weighted average shares of approximately 774 million and an expected effective tax rate of 24%.
(2) Utilizes weighted average shares of 775.3 million.  Pension mark-to-market expense uses a blended tax rate of 21.3%.  Debt refinancing expense uses a tax rate of 26.5%. 
Earnings attributable to 2016 divestitures use a blended tax rate of 33.9%.
We believe EPS, excluding pension mark-to-market expense, debt refinancing expense and earnings attributable to 2016 divestitures is a measure that is useful to investors and
management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends.  Management cannot reliably predict or estimate, without unreasonable effort, the
pension mark-to-market expense as it is dependent on macroeconomic factors, such as interest rates and the return generated on invested pension plan assets.  We therefore do
not include an estimate for the pension mark-to-market expense in this reconciliation.  Management is not currently forecasting an impact to earnings per share arising from a debt
refinancing or divestiture transaction.  Based on economic and industry conditions, future developments and other relevant factors, these assumptions are subject to change.

   

Honeywell International Inc
Reconciliation of Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow  (Unaudited)
(Dollars in billions)
Twelve Months Ended
December 31,
2017E 2016
Cash provided by operating activities  $5.7 - $5.8 $5.5
Expenditures for property, plant and equipment  ~(1.1) (1.1)
Free cash flow  $4.6 - $4.7 $4.4
We define free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities less cash expenditures for property, plant and equipment.
We believe this metric is useful to investors and management as a measure of cash generated by business operations that will be used to repay scheduled debt maturities
and can be used to invest in future growth through new business development activities or acquisitions, pay dividends, repurchase stock or repay debt obligations prior to their
maturities. This metric can also be used to evaluate our ability to generate cash flow from business operations and the impact that this cash flow has on our liquidity.
