CORK, Ireland, Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls International plc (NYSE: JCI) today reported fiscal fourth quarter 2017 GAAP earnings per share ("EPS") from continuing operations, including special items, of $0.93 (see attached footnotes for non-GAAP reconciliation).  Excluding these items, adjusted EPS from continuing operations was $0.87, up 14 percent versus the prior year period.

Sales of $8.1 billion increased 4 percent compared to the prior year on a combined basis.  Excluding the impacts from net acquisition and divestiture activity, as well as foreign exchange and changes in lead prices, total company sales grew 2 percent organically.     

GAAP earnings before interest and taxes ("EBIT") was $1.2 billion and the EBIT margin was 14.5 percent. Adjusted EBIT was $1.1 billion, up 10 percent over last year with adjusted EBIT margin expansion of 80 basis points, to 13.9 percent.

"During the first year as a combined company, we have made significant progress bringing two market leading companies together as one," said George Oliver, Johnson Controls chairman & CEO.  "We have integrated across geographies and businesses and are off to a strong start in streamlining our cost structure, which drove our 13 percent adjusted earnings per share growth for the year.  I am proud of how our teams have come together and the tremendous amount of work that has been completed to date.  As we look to 2018, there is plenty of work to be done with our priorities centered on organic revenue growth, expanding margins, delivering cost synergies, and improving free cash flow conversion.  I am humbled and honored to now be leading Johnson Controls and creating value for our customers, shareholders and employees," Oliver added.

The financial highlights presented in the tables below are in accordance with GAAP, unless otherwise indicated.  All comparisons are to the fourth quarter and full year of 2016, which are adjusted to reflect the combination of Johnson Controls' historical Building Efficiency business with historical Tyco results of operations as if these businesses had operated together during the periods presented, along with certain other adjustments.  For additional information, see the unaudited supplemental financial information included in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Johnson Controls with the SEC on Nov. 8, 2016 as well as the attached footnotes.  The spin-off of Adient plc occurred on Oct. 31, 2016 and the results of this business are reported in discontinued operations for all historical periods presented.

Buildings sales in the fourth quarter of 2017 were $6.0 billion, down 1 percent versus the prior year quarter.  Organic sales increased 1 percent versus the prior year, as a 1 percent decline in our field businesses was more than offset by 3 percent growth in product sales.    

Orders in the quarter, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign exchange, increased 2 percent year-over-year, with flat orders in the field businesses and 5 percent growth in products.  Backlog at the end of the quarter of $8.5 billion was 4 percent higher year-over-year, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign exchange.

Buildings adjusted segment EBITA was $904 million, up 5 percent versus the prior year.  Adjusted segment EBITA margin of 15.1 percent improved 80 basis points over the prior year as the benefit of cost synergies and productivity savings more than offset price cost pressure and planned product and channel investments. 

Adjusted sales for the full year were $22.8 billion, down 1 percent versus the prior year, with organic sales growth of 1 percent.  Adjusted segment EBITA was $3.0 billion and the EBITA margin improved 50 basis points to 13.2 percent.

Power Solutions sales in the fourth quarter of 2017 were $2.1 billion, an increase of 18 percent versus the prior year.  Excluding the impact of higher lead pass-through and foreign exchange, organic sales grew 9 percent versus the prior year, driven by higher unit volumes and favorable mix across all regions.  Global original equipment battery shipments declined 5 percent, in-line with lower production in the US and EMEA, and aftermarket shipments increased 8 percent with growth across all regions.  Start-Stop battery shipments increased 30 percent year-over-year, led by growth in China and the Americas.  

Power Solutions adjusted segment EBITA was $431 million, up 4 percent from the prior year.  Excluding the impact of foreign exchange and lead, adjusted segment EBITA increased 5 percent.  Adjusted segment EBITA margin of 20.2 percent decreased 260 basis points compared with the prior year, including a 170 basis point headwind related to the impact of lead and a 10 basis point headwind related to the impact of foreign exchange.  Excluding these impacts, adjusted segment EBITA margin decreased 80 basis points year-over-year as the benefit from productivity initiatives was more than offset by incremental product investments and increased logistics and distribution costs, including hurricane disruptions.      

Sales for the full year were $7.3 billion, up 10 percent versus the prior year, with organic sales growth of 4 percent.  Adjusted segment EBITA was $1.4 billion and the EBITA margin decreased 60 basis points to 19.5 percent, including a 150 basis point headwind related to the impact of lead and a 10 basis point headwind related to the impact of foreign exchange.  Excluding these impacts, adjusted segment EBITA margin increased 100 basis points year-over-year.

OTHER ITEMS

Johnson Controls International plc Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Johnson Controls International plc has made statements in this communication that are forward-looking and therefore are subject to risks and uncertainties. All statements in this document other than statements of historical fact are, or could be, "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In this communication, statements regarding Johnson Controls' future financial position, sales, costs, earnings, cash flows, other measures of results of operations, synergies and integration opportunities, capital expenditures and debt levels are forward-looking statements. Words such as "may," "will," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "anticipate," "believe," "should," "forecast," "project" or "plan" and terms of similar meaning are also generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. However, the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Johnson Controls cautions that these statements are subject to numerous important risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors, some of which are beyond Johnson Controls' control, that could cause Johnson Controls' actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including, among others, risks related to: any delay or inability of Johnson Controls to realize the expected benefits and synergies of recent portfolio transactions such as the merger with Tyco and the spin-off of Adient, changes in tax laws, regulations, rates, policies or interpretations, the loss of key senior management, the tax treatment of recent portfolio transactions, significant transaction costs and/or unknown liabilities associated with such transactions, the outcome of actual or potential litigation relating to such transactions, the risk that disruptions from recent transactions will harm Johnson Controls' business, the strength of the U.S. or other economies, automotive vehicle production levels, mix and schedules, energy and commodity prices, the availability of raw materials and component products, currency exchange rates, and cancellation of or changes to commercial arrangements. A detailed discussion of risks related to Johnson Controls' business is included in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in Johnson Controls' Annual Report on Form 10-K for the 2016 year filed with the SEC on November 23, 2016, and in the quarterly reports on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC after such date, and available at www.sec.gov and www.johnsoncontrols.com under the "Investors" tab. Shareholders, potential investors and others should consider these factors in evaluating the forward-looking statements and should not place undue reliance on such statements. The forward-looking statements included in this communication are made only as of the date of this document, unless otherwise specified, and, except as required by law, Johnson Controls assumes no obligation, and disclaims any obligation, to update such statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this communication.

Non GAAP Financial Information

The Company's press release contains financial information regarding adjusted earnings per share, which is a non-GAAP performance measure. The adjusting items include mark-to-market for pension and postretirement plans, transaction/integration/separation costs, restructuring and impairment costs, nonrecurring purchase accounting impacts related to the Tyco merger, an unfavorable arbitration award and discrete tax items. Financial information regarding adjusted sales, adjusted organic sales, adjusted segment EBITA, adjusted segment EBITA margin, adjusted corporate expense, adjusted EBIT, free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion are also presented, which are non-GAAP performance measures. Adjusted segment EBITA excludes special items such as transaction/integration/separation costs and nonrecurring purchase accounting impacts because these costs are not considered to be directly related to the underlying operating performance of its business units.  Management believes that, when considered together with unadjusted amounts, these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results and business trends of the Company. Management may also use these metrics as guides in forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning processes and for compensation purposes. These metrics should be considered in addition to, and not as replacements for, the most comparable GAAP measure.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company began evaluating the performance of its business units primarily on segment earnings before interest, taxes and amortization (EBITA), which represents income from continuing operations before income taxes and noncontrolling interests, excluding general corporate expenses, intangible asset amortization, net financing charges, significant restructuring and impairment costs, and the net mark-to-market adjustments related to pension and postretirement plans.  Historical information has been revised to present the comparable periods on a consistent basis.  Also in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company began reporting the Automotive Experience business as a discontinued operation, which required retrospective application to previously reported financial information.  As a result, the segment EBITA amounts shown below are for continuing operations and exclude the Automotive Experience business.  In addition, the financial results for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2016 include only the September results for the Tyco business as the merger closed September 2, 2016.

2.  2016 Supplemental Combined Information




As a result of the reverse merger between JCI and Tyco, which closed on September 2, 2016, the Company is providing supplemental combined financial information.  As supplemental information that management believes will be useful to investors, the Company has provided unaudited selected historical information which combines JCI's historical Building Efficiency business with historical Tyco results of operations as if these businesses had been operated together during the periods presented.




The merger is accounted for as a reverse acquisition with JCI considered to be acquiring Tyco for accounting purposes.  As a result, the amounts reflected in Column A in the below table present the historical results of JCI, revised for the reporting changes described within footnote 1 above.  The amounts in Column B reflect the impact of the special items, as set forth in the notes to the table and within footnote 1 above. The amounts in Column C reflect the inclusion of Tyco's historical results for the period prior to the merger on an adjusted basis.




For the avoidance of doubt, this supplemental combined information is not intended to be, and was not, prepared on a basis consistent with the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information in Exhibit 99.3 to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed October 3, 2016 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Pro Forma 8-K/A Filing"), which provides the pro forma financial information required by Item 9.01(b) of Form 8-K. The supplemental combined information is intentionally different from, but does not supersede, the pro forma financial information in the Pro Forma 8-K/A Filing.




In addition, the supplemental combined information does not purport to indicate the results that actually would have been obtained had the JCI and Tyco businesses been operated together on the basis of the new segment structure during the periods presented, or which may be realized in the future.




Amounts Adjusted for Certain Special Items




The supplemental combined information includes line items, such as net sales, income from continuing operations before income taxes, income tax provision, noncontrolling interest, net income and diluted EPS, that have been adjusted for the special items set forth in the notes to the table. Such amounts should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, net sales, income from continuing operations before income taxes, income tax provision, noncontrolling interest, net income and diluted EPS and other financial measures on an unadjusted basis. In addition, per share amounts presented in the tables take into account the effects of (i) the issuance of ordinary shares to JCI shareholders in connection with the merger, and (ii) the consolidation of Tyco ordinary shares immediately prior to the merger. As a result, share counts reflect shares outstanding as of September 2, 2016 immediately following the consummation of the merger transaction.




The Company's management believes that these adjusted amounts, when considered together with the unadjusted amounts, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. The Company's management also believes that these adjusted amounts enhance the ability of investors to analyze trends in the Company's underlying business and to better understand the Company's performance. In addition, the Company may utilize adjusted amounts as guides in forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning processes and to measure operating performance for compensation purposes. Adjusted amounts should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, unadjusted amounts.

A - Johnson Controls, as reported.





B - Adjusted to exclude special items because these costs are not considered to be directly related to the underlying operating performance of the Company. Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in better understanding the ongoing operations and business trends of the Company.  The special items are described by line item in footnote 1 above.  The income tax provision and noncontrolling interest adjustments are a result of the special items discussed in footnote 1.





C - Includes Tyco adjusted non-GAAP results for the two and eleven months ended September 2, 2016, as if the merger occurred October 1, 2015. Tyco's first three fiscal quarters of 2016 ended on the last Friday of December, March and June, while JCI's fiscal quarters ended on the last day of each such month. Because the historical statements of income of each company represent full and equivalent quarterly periods, no adjustments were made to align the fiscal quarters.  The income tax provision also includes an adjustment to arrive at an annualized 17% tax rate for fiscal 2016 as a combined company.





D - Combined financial information as if the merger with Tyco was completed on October 1, 2015. Reflects annual 17% tax rate and 940 million share count.

 4.  Adjusted Free Cash Flow Reconciliation












































The Company's press release contains financial information regarding free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow, which are non-GAAP performance measures.  Free cash flow is defined as cash provided (used) by operating activities less capital expenditures.  Adjusted free cash flow excludes special items, as included in the table below, because these cash flows are not considered to be directly related to its underlying business.  Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in understanding the strength of the Company and its ability to generate cash.

The Company's press release contains financial information regarding adjusted earnings per share, which is a non-GAAP performance measure.  The adjusting items include transaction/integration/separation costs,  nonrecurring purchase accounting impacts related to the Tyco merger, mark-to-market gain or loss for pension and postretirement plans, restructuring and impairment costs, an unfavorable arbitration award and discrete tax items.  The Company excludes these items because they are not considered to be directly related to the underlying operating performance of the Company.  Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in understanding the ongoing operations and business trends of the Company. 






























A reconciliation of diluted earnings per share as reported to diluted adjusted earnings per share for the respective periods is shown below (unaudited):

For the three months ended September 30, 2016, the total number of potential dilutive shares due to stock options, unvested restricted stock and unvested performance share awards was 6.9 million. However, these items were not included in the computation of diluted loss per share for the three months ended September 30, 2016, since to do so would decrease the loss per share. On an adjusted diluted outstanding share basis, inclusion of the effect of dilutive securities results in diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 735.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016.






























The Company has presented forward-looking statements regarding adjusted EPS from continuing operations, adjusted EBIT margin, organic adjusted net sales growth and adjusted free cash flow conversion (defined as adjusted free cash flow divided by adjusted net income from continuing operations attributable to JCI) for the full fiscal year of 2018, which are non-GAAP financial measures. These non–GAAP financial measures are derived by excluding certain amounts, expenses, income or cash flows from the corresponding financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The determination of the amounts that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures are a matter of management judgment and depends upon, among other factors, the nature of the underlying expense or income amounts recognized in a given period, including but not limited to the high variability of the net mark-to-market adjustments related to pension and post-retirement plans and the effect of foreign currency exchange fluctuations.  Our fiscal 2018 outlook for organic adjusted net sales growth also excludes the effect of acquisitions and divestitures, and for our Power Solutions business, the impacts of lead price fluctuations.  We are unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of the aforementioned forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures because such information is not available and management cannot reliably predict all of the necessary components of such GAAP measures without unreasonable effort or expense. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on the Company's full year 2018 GAAP financial results.






















































 6.  Mark-to-Market of Pension and Postretirement Plans












































The pension and postretirement mark-to-market gain or loss for each period is excluded from adjusted diluted earnings per share.  The three and twelve months ended September 30, 2017 include a mark-to-market gain for pension and postretirement plans of $330 million and $420 million, respectively.  The three and twelve months ended September 30, 2016 include a mark-to-market loss for pension and postretirement plans of $393 million.





























 7.  Acquisitions and Divestitures


















































On March 16, 2017, the Company announced that it signed a definitive agreement to sell its Scott Safety business to 3M for approximately $2.0 billion.  The transaction closed on October 4, 2017.  Net cash proceeds from the transaction approximated $1.9 billion.  Scott Safety is a leader in the design, manufacture and sale of high performance respiratory protection, gas and flame detection, thermal imaging and other critical products for fire services, law enforcement, industrial, oil and gas, chemical, armed forces, and homeland defense end markets.  The Scott Safety business is included within assets held for sale and liabilities held for sale in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of financial position as of September 30, 2017.  






























On October 31, 2016, the Company completed the spin-off of its Automotive Experience business by way of the transfer of the Automotive Experience business from JCI plc to Adient plc and the issuance of ordinary shares of Adient plc directly to holders of JCI plc ordinary shares on a pro rata basis.  Following the separation, Adient plc is now an independent public company trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbol "ADNT." The Company did not retain any equity interest in Adient plc.  Beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2017, Adient's historical financial results are reflected in the Company's consolidated financial statements as a discontinued operation. 






























On September 2, 2016, JCI Inc. and Tyco completed their combination which was announced on January 25, 2016.  The merger is accounted for as a reverse acquisition using the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 805, "Business Combinations."  JCI Inc. is the accounting acquirer for financial reporting purposes.  Accordingly, the historical consolidated financial statements of JCI Inc. for periods prior to this transaction are considered to be the historical financial statements of the Company.  The total fair value of the consideration transferred was $19.7 billion.  As part of the transaction in the fiscal 2016 fourth quarter, the Company recorded $16.4 billion of goodwill and $6.2 billion of intangible assets, of which $3.9 billion are subject to amortization.






























On October 1, 2015, the Company formed a joint venture with Hitachi to expand its legacy Building Efficiency product offerings.  The Company acquired a 60 percent ownership stake in the new entity for approximately $133 million ($563 million purchase price less cash acquired of $430 million).





























 8. Income Taxes

















































The Company's effective tax rate from continuing operations before consideration of the transaction/integration/separation costs, nonrecurring purchase accounting impacts related to the Tyco merger, mark-to-market gains or losses for pension and postretirement plans, restructuring and impairment costs, an unfavorable arbitration award and discrete tax items for the three months ending September 30, 2017 and 2016 is approximately 15 percent and 17 percent, respectively.





























 9. Restructuring

















































The three and twelve months ended September 30, 2017 include restructuring and impairment costs of $141 million and $367 million, respectively, related primarily to workforce reductions, plant closures and asset impairments in the Building Technologies & Solutions and Power Solutions businesses, and at Corporate.  The three and twelve months ended September 30, 2016 restructuring and impairment costs of $201 million and $288 million, respectively, related primarily to workforce reductions, plant closures and asset impairments in the Building Technologies & Solutions and Power Solutions businesses, and at Corporate.
