"Honeywell had a very strong fourth quarter, capping off a terrific year across the board with record sales, margins, and earnings," said Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote.  "Even in a continued slow-growth environment, our 2013 sales grew 4% and proforma earnings were up 11%, above our guidance, exiting the year with better than expected sales in every business.  We generated strong margin expansion driven by excellent execution, with benefits from continued traction on our key process and productivity initiatives across the portfolio.  We sustained our 'seed planting' investments for the future including innovating new products and technologies, and expanding geographically. We've also proactively funded new repositioning projects by smartly redeploying non-operating gains.  Our short-cycle businesses accelerated as we ended the year and our long-cycle order backlog stood at an impressive $15.5 billion.  While we think it's prudent to remain cautious on the global economy at this time, we're increasingly confident in our 2014 outlook based on the momentum from the fourth quarter.  And, the benefits from smart gain deployment actions position the Company for strong earnings growth and outperformance over the next 5 years." 

The company is also reaffirming its full-year 2014 guidance:

  • Sales were up 3% compared with the fourth quarter of 2012 driven by 3% Commercial growth and a 2% increase in Defense and Space.  Commercial original equipment (OE) sales were  approximately flat driven by continued strong OE build rates and favorable platform mix offset by higher payments due to BGA OEM customers.  Commercial aftermarket sales were up 5% driven by higher airline spares and strong BGA RMU (Repairs, Modifications, and Upgrades) sales.  Defense and Space sales increased 2% driven by a royalty gain and international strength offsetting planned program ramp downs.
  • Segment profit was up 6%, and segment margins expanded 60 bps to 20.5%, primarily due to productivity net of inflation, and commercial excellence, partially offset by investments for growth. BGA OEM payments were offset by a royalty gain in Defense and Space.

  • Segment profit was up 8% and segment margins were down (20) bps to 15.3% driven by the dilutive impact of acquisitions, higher Building Solutions and Distribution sales, and continued investments for growth partially offset by volume and productivity net of inflation, including benefits from prior period repositioning.

We define free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities, less cash expenditures for property, plant and equipment, cash pension contributions, NARCO Trust establishment payments and cash taxes relating to the sale of available for sale investments.

 

We believe that this metric is useful to investors and management as a measure of cash generated by business operations that will be used to repay scheduled debt maturities and can be used to invest in future growth through new business development activities or acquisitions, and to pay dividends, repurchase stock, or repay debt obligations prior to their maturities. This metric can also be used to evaluate our ability to generate cash flow from business operations and the impact that this cash flow has on our liquidity.
