Jul '14
Honeywell announced its results for the second quarter of 2014.
 
Highlights: 
-Organic Sales Growth 3%; Strong Execution Across The Portfolio 
-EPS Up 8% Reported, Up 12% Using Normalized Tax Rate 
-Raising Low-End Proforma EPS Guidance To $5.45 - $5.55, From $5.40 - $5.55 
 
Performance Materials and Technologies
-Sales were up 6% compared with the second quarter of 2013, driven by UOP catalyst and gas processing growth and higher sales in Advanced Materials, particularly Fluorine Products. 
 
-Segment profit was up 8% and segment margins increased 30 bps to 18.0%, driven by productivity net of inflation and higher volume, partially offset by price/raw headwinds in Resins & Chemicals, unfavorable UOP catalyst shipment mix versus the prior year, and continued investments for growth.
 
“Honeywell had another terrific quarter and a very good first half of 2014,” said Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote. “Strong execution across our businesses and continued momentum across the portfolio helped us to deliver stronger than expected earnings. We saw 6% sales growth and margin expansion in every business as our key growth and productivity initiatives continue to make a difference. Our short-cycle businesses, particularly Energy, Safety and Security and Turbo Technologies, are benefiting from improving end markets, new product introductions, and geographic expansion, while our long-cycle businesses are growing robust backlogs supported by favorable macro trends and strong win rates.
 
"Our recently announced closing of the sale of Friction Materials was a significant step in our effort to align the Honeywell portfolio around Great Positions in Good Industries. We believe that our portfolio is well positioned for continued growth. As a result of our first half performance, we are raising the low-end of our 2014 proforma EPS guidance by $0.05 with the expectation of improved organic growth and continued margin expansion in the second half of the year.”
 
On July 14, Honeywell announced that it will realign its Transportation Systems business segment with its Aerospace business segment to better take advantage of the engineering and technology similarities and the shared business models between these two business segments. Under the realigned segment reporting structure, the Company will have three business segments: Aerospace, Automation and Control Solutions, and Performance Materials and Technologies. 
 
This realignment has no impact on the Company’s historical consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. Effective with the reporting of third quarter 2014 results, the Company will report its financial performance based on the inclusion of Transportation Systems in Aerospace.
