Johnson Controls Reports 2013 Second Quarter Earnings; Re-Affirms Previous Full-Year Guidance PR Newswire MILWAUKEE, April 23, 2013 MILWAUKEE, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --For the fiscal 2013 second quarter, Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI) reported net income of $148 million, or $0.21 per share, on $10.4 billion in sales. The results were in-line with expectations. Excluding restructuring and non-recurring items in the 2013 and 2012 fiscal second quarters, highlights include: oNet sales of $10.4 billion versus $10.6 billion in Q2 2012, down 1 percent. oIncome from business segments of $463 million compared with $581 million a year ago, down 20 percent. oNet income of $287 million versus $378 million in Q2 2012. oDiluted earnings per share of $0.42 versus $0.55 in the same quarter last year. Johnson Controls said it believes that using the adjusted numbers provides a more meaningful comparison of its underlying operating performance. A number of non-recurring items impacted Q2 2013 earnings and related earnings per share. They include: o$82 million pre-tax gain from acquiring the remaining 50% equity interest in an Automotive Experience joint venture in India ($0.07 per diluted share). o$111 million of non-cash tax charges related primarily to valuation allowances in Germany and Brazil ($0.16 per diluted share). o$84 million restructuring charge at Automotive Experience related primarily to Interiors-Europe and South America ($0.12 per diluted share). The company noted that there were non-recurring items as well in Q2 2012, but that there was no net impact on earnings per share. "Our second quarter results were at the high end of our previous guidance. Building Efficiency posted earnings level with last year despite soft institutional and construction markets which negatively impacted revenues. Automotive Experience benefited from higher auto production in North America and Asia, but these improvements were more than offset by the low production levels as well as operational and restructuring-related costs in Europe," said Stephen A. Roell, chairman and chief executive officer of Johnson Controls. "We remain committed to improving profitability despite soft global demand in our markets. Our restructuring initiatives are gaining momentum and proceeding as planned. We expect to see significant benefits in the second half of the fiscal year." Business Results (excluding restructuring & one-time items) Building Efficiency continued to experience soft global demand that is impacting sales and orders secured. Sales were $3.5 billion, down 3 percent versus the second quarter of 2012. Higher sales in North America Systems were offset by lower revenues in Europe, Asia and North America Service. Backlog declined 6 percent, with higher demand in Asia more than offset by softness in energy solutions, the Middle East and Europe. Orders secured dropped 10 percent versus the same quarter last year, with general softness across all major geographic regions. The company noted, however, that it has started to see year-over-year improvement in bidding activity in certain markets, including U.S federal and state government and energy solutions. Building Efficiency profitability increased in the 2013 quarter as earnings of $139 million were approximately level with the prior year despite the lower revenue. The business benefited from initiatives to improve labor productivity and to reduce costs. In addition, new pricing programs continue to be implemented across service offerings. Building Efficiency expects higher revenue in the second half of fiscal 2013, led by seasonal growth in North America Service and Unitary Products Group (UPG) and a favorable backlog in Asia. Segment income will increasingly benefit from productivity and restructuring programs initiated over the past year. Automotive Experience sales in the 2013 second quarter were $5.4 billion, down 3 percent compared to the 2012 second quarter, as higher revenue in North America was more than offset by lower sales in Europe. Automotive industry production in the quarter increased 1 percent in North America and declined 8 percent in Europe. Seating and Interiors sales were down modestly, while Electronics revenue dropped 13 percent. The Electronics revenue decline was primarily the result of lower auto production rates in Europe where the company has a higher level of electronics content. Revenues in China, which are primarily related to Seating and generated through non-consolidated joint ventures, increased 31 percent to $1.3 billion. Automotive Experience segment income was $103 million, significantly lower than the same quarter last year. The profitability of all three automotive segments was impacted by the low level of European production. The company said the performance of its European and South American businesses improved sequentially. Seating segment income in the quarter was $98 million, down significantly versus last year, primarily due to operational costs and lower European volumes. Electronics segment income was $24 million, down 35 percent due to European volumes and higher research and development costs. The Interiors business reported a $19 million loss in the quarter mainly due to lower volumes in Europe. Automotive Experience anticipates improved profitability in the second half of fiscal 2013, led by better operational performance in its European and South American businesses, as well as the benefits of its restructuring program in Europe. Power Solutions saw strong growth in revenue and earnings versus the second quarter of 2012. Sales increased 10 percent to $1.6 billion versus the same quarter last year. Stronger unit shipments in Asia and North America were partially offset by lower volumes in Europe. Power Solutions segment income was $221 million, 11 percent higher than the same quarter last year. The Company also completed the ramp-up of its recycling facility in South Carolina and the construction of its second Chinese battery plant is proceeding on schedule. Sale of Automotive Electronics Business On March 6, Johnson Controls announced it had retained JPMorgan to explore a potential sale of the electronics business to maximize shareholder value. The Company said the process is in its early stages and it expects to provide an update within the next three to four months. 2013 Outlook Johnson Controls reaffirmed its previous earnings guidance for the 2013 fiscal year of $2.60 - $2.70 per diluted share. Factors driving improved second half performance include: oRealization of benefits from restructuring initiatives oSeasonality of Building Efficiency profitability with increasing benefits of improved cost and pricing initiatives oContinued sequential improvements in Automotive Experience European and South American businesses oImproved Power Solutions profitability associated with vertical integration and favorable year-over-year net lead costs oImproved North America and Europe production comparables The Company said it is comfortable with analyst consensus of $0.75 per share for third quarter 2013 earnings. "Despite a challenging global market, we anticipate stronger profitability in the second half of fiscal 2013 consistent with market expectations," said Mr. Roell. "Our second half results will reflect restructuring benefits and improved operating performance. We feel confident with our previously issued guidance for higher Johnson Controls earnings in 2013."
