DUBLIN -- July 18, 2014

Power management company Eaton Corporation plc (NYSE: ETN), in preparation for
its second quarter 2014 earnings release on July 29, today clarified the
expected impact of several unusual items that occurred in the quarter.

The gain from the recent aerospace divestitures to Safran, and the settlement
amounts and other costs relating to settlements of the litigation with Meritor
Inc., Triumph Group Inc., and related lawsuits, are expected to reduce second
quarter operating earnings by approximately $0.70 per share, after-tax.

Excluding these unusual items, Eaton’s guidance for second quarter 2014
operating earnings per share is $1.10 to $1.12. This compares to the second
quarter guidance of $1.05 to $1.15 originally announced on April 29, 2014.
