Honeywell announced its results for the third quarter of 2013:

Performance Materials and Technologies

-Sales were up 10% reported, but down (1%) organic, compared with the third quarter of 2012, driven by the favorable impact of the Thomas Russell acquisition, partially offset by challenging global market conditions in Advanced Materials.

- Segment profit was up 11% and segment margins increased 10 bps to 18.7%, driven by the favorable margin impact of higher UOP licensing and productivity partially offset by inflation and continued investments for growth.

“Honeywell executed well in the quarter, building on the momentum we’ve seen throughout 2013,” said Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote.

“We delivered another quarter of double digit EPS growth (when normalized for tax). Despite lower than expected sales in the quarter, primarily related to the delay in closing Intermec and lower Defense & Space sales, strong execution across the portfolio helped drive earnings at the high-end of our guidance range. Our short-cycle businesses, particularly Energy, Safety and Security, and Turbo Technologies, are benefitting from improving end markets, new product introductions, and geographic expansion, while our long-cycle businesses are maintaining a robust backlog, driven by favorable macro trends and strong win rates.

“Productivity was impressive across the portfolio, enabling further segment margin expansion in all four businesses and continued proactive funding of new repositioning projects. As a result of the year-to-date performance, we are raising the low-end of our 2013 EPS outlook by $0.05 to $4.90-4.95, which is the high-end of the initial guidance range we provided almost a year ago. Looking ahead to 2014, we are planning for a continued slow growth macro environment, but see a path to strong earnings growth driven by our relentless seed planting in new products and technologies, continued penetration of high growth regions, and growing traction on key process initiatives.”

Third quarter 2013 EPS reflect a 27.2% effective tax rate compared to 22.7% last year. Using the 2012 actual / 2013 expected full-year tax rate of 26.5% before any pension mark-to-market adjustment, EPS growth was 10%.
