United Technologies Boosts Forecast Including Goodrich Costs

United Technologies Corp. (UTX) boosted its 2012 outlook including costs from last year’s acquisition of aircraft parts-maker Goodrich Corp. (GR) by 10 cents a share.

Earnings per share this year will be $5.40 to $5.60, Hartford, Connecticut-based United Technologies said in a presentation on its Web site before Chief Executive Officer Louis Chenevert speaks at a conference. That compares with an earlier estimate of $5.30 to $5.50.

The $16.5 billion acquisition is expected to close by midyear, the company has said.
