Adjusted EBIT was $812 million and adjusted EBIT margin was 12.9%, up 80 basis points over the prior year.  Excluding the impact of M&A and foreign currency, underlying adjusted EBIT grew 10% versus the prior year.

"Our fourth quarter results cap off a solid fiscal 2019, having delivered on all of our financial and strategic commitments, with continued momentum in our Field businesses globally, as well as strong margin execution and cash generation as we exit the year," said George Oliver, chairman & CEO.  "Looking ahead to fiscal 2020, we are well positioned to build upon the performance in 2019 by leveraging our strong backlog position, remaining focused on operational execution and continuing to redeploy capital to our shareholders.  Moving forward as a pure play buildings company, our unique portfolio of smart, sustainable products and solutions enables Johnson Controls to lead the evolution of smart buildings, infrastructure and cities," Oliver added.

Sales in the quarter of $2.4 billion increased 3% versus the prior year.  Excluding M&A and foreign currency, organic sales also increased 3% versus the prior year driven by strong growth in HVAC & Controls and, to a lesser extent, growth in Fire & Security. This was partially offset by a decline in Performance Solutions due to the timing of projects.        

Orders in the quarter, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency, increased 7% year-over-year.  Backlog at the end of the quarter of $5.8 billion increased 8% year-over-year, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency.

Adjusted segment EBITA was $357 million, up 6% versus the prior year. Adjusted segment EBITA margin of 14.9% expanded 40 basis points versus the prior year driven by favorable volume leverage as well as cost synergies and productivity savings. 

Sales for the full year were $9.0 billion, an increase of 4% versus the prior year on both a reported and organic basis.  Adjusted segment EBITA for the full year was $1.2 billion and adjusted segment EBITA margin was flat year-over-year, at 13.1%.

Sales in the quarter of $948 million were flat with the prior year.  Excluding M&A and foreign currency, organic sales grew 4% versus the prior year driven by strong growth in both service and project installations. Growth was positive across most regions, led by strength in Industrial Refrigeration in Europe and Fire & Security in Latin America.        

Orders in the quarter, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency, increased 3% year-over-year.  Backlog at the end of the quarter of $1.6 billion increased 10% year-over-year, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency.

Adjusted segment EBITA was $111 million, up 8% versus the prior year. Adjusted segment EBITA margin of 11.7% expanded 80 basis points over the prior year, including a 40 basis point headwind related to foreign currency.  Adjusting for foreign currency, the underlying margin improved 120 basis points driven by favorable volume as well as the benefit from cost synergies and productivity savings, partially offset by run-rate salesforce additions. 

Sales for the full year were $3.7 billion, a decrease of 1% versus the prior year, with organic growth of 4%.  Adjusted segment EBITA for the full year was $372 million and adjusted segment EBITA margin expanded 70 basis points year-over-year, including a 30 basis point headwind related to foreign currency, to 10.2%.

Sales in the quarter of $2.2 billion declined 1% versus the prior year. Excluding M&A and foreign currency, organic sales were flat with the prior year as solid growth in Building Management Systems and Specialty Products, was offset by a slight decline in HVAC & Refrigeration Equipment.   

Adjusted segment EBITA was $419 million, up 6% versus the prior year. Adjusted segment EBITA margin of 19.1% expanded 130 basis points over the prior year. This increase was driven by positive price/cost as well as the benefit of cost synergies and productivity savings, partially offset by volume de-leverage and investments. 

Sales for the full year were $8.6 billion, up 2% versus the prior year, with organic growth of 5%.  Adjusted segment EBITA for the full year was $1.3 billion and adjusted segment EBITA margin expanded 80 basis points year-over-year to 15.6%.

Adjusted Corporate expense was $89 million in the quarter, and $376 million for the full year, a decrease of 6% and 10%, respectively, when compared to the prior year.  The improvement in both periods was driven primarily by continued cost synergies and productivity savings and, to a lesser extent, cost reductions related to the Power Solutions sale. 

OTHER ITEMS

  • For the quarter, cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations was $1.0 billion and capital expenditures were $0.2 billion, resulting in free cash flow from continuing operations of $0.8 billion.

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 (including but not limited to the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act), 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, changes to laws or policies governing foreign trade, including increased tariffs or trade restrictions, mix and schedules, energy and commodity prices, the availability of raw materials and component products, currency rates and cancellation of or changes to commercial arrangements, and with respect to the disposition of the Power Solutions business, whether the strategic benefits of the Power Solutions transaction can be achieved. 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 2018 fiscal year filed with the SEC on November 20, 2018, and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended December 31, 2018, March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2019, filed with the SEC on February 1, 2019, May 3, 2019 and August 1, 2019, respectively, which are 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 net mark-to-market adjustments, transaction/integration costs, restructuring and impairment costs, Scott Safety gain on sale, tax indemnification reserve release, environmental reserve, loss on extinguishment of debt, Power Solutions gain on sale (net of transaction and other costs), the impact of ceasing the depreciation/amortization expense for the Power Solutions business as the business is held for sale and discrete tax items. Financial information regarding organic sales, adjusted segment EBITA, adjusted organic segment EBITA, adjusted segment EBITA margin, adjusted free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow conversion and net debt are also presented, which are non-GAAP performance measures. Adjusted segment EBITA excludes special items such as transaction/integration costs, environmental reserve and Scott Safety gain on sale 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.

Financial Summary































































The Company evaluates 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, restructuring and impairment costs, and the net mark-to-market adjustments related to restricted asbestos investments and pension and postretirement plans. In the first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company began reporting the Power Solutions business as a discontinued operation, which required retrospective application to previously reported financial information. As a result, the financial results shown below are for continuing operations and exclude the Power Solutions business.

(1) The Company's press release contains financial information regarding adjusted segment EBITA and adjusted segment EBITA margins, which are non-GAAP performance measures. The Company's definition of adjusted segment EBITA excludes special items because these costs are not considered to be directly related to the underlying operating performance of its businesses. Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in understanding the ongoing operations and business trends of the Company.

(2) Adjusted Corporate expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2019 excludes $79 million of integration costs and $4 million of transaction costs. Adjusted Corporate expenses for the twelve months ended September 30, 2019 excludes $244 million of integration costs and $11 million of transaction costs, partially offset by $226 million of income as a result of a tax indemnification reserve release. Adjusted Corporate expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 excludes $43 million of integration costs and $4 million of transaction costs.  Adjusted Corporate expenses for the twelve months ended September 30, 2018 excludes $154 million of integration costs and $14 million of transaction costs.




(3) On October 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-01, "Financial Instruments - Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities." ASU No. 2016-01 amends certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of financial instruments, including marketable securities. The new standard requires the mark-to-market of marketable securities investments previously recorded within accumulated other comprehensive income on the statement of financial position be recorded in the statement of income on a prospective basis beginning as of the adoption date. As these restricted investments do not relate to the underlying operating performance of its businesses, the Company's definition of adjusted segment EBITA and adjusted EBIT excludes the mark-to-market adjustments effective October 1, 2018. The three months ended September 30, 2019 exclude the net mark-to-market adjustments on restricted investments and pension and postretirement plans of $626 million. The twelve months ended September 30, 2019 exclude the net mark-to-market adjustments on restricted investments and pension and postretirement plans of $618 million.  The three and twelve months ended September 30, 2018 exclude the net mark-to-market adjustments on pension and postretirement plans of $24 million



































(4) Restructuring and impairment costs for the twelve months ended September 30, 2019 of $235 million are excluded from the adjusted non-GAAP results. Restructuring and impairment costs for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2018 of $101 million and $255 million, respectively, are excluded from the adjusted non-GAAP results. The restructuring actions and impairment costs for the twelve months ended September 30, 2019 result from the impairment of a Global Products business classified as held for sale.  The restructuring and impairment costs for the twelve months ended September 30, 2018 are related primarily to workforce reductions, plant closures and asset impairments in the Building Technologies & Solutions business and at Corporate.



































(5) Management defines earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) as income from continuing operations before net financing charges, income taxes and noncontrolling interests.



































(6) Adjusted net financing charges for the twelve months ended September 30, 2019 exclude a loss on debt extinguishment of $60 million.



































(7) Adjusted income tax provision for the three months ended September 30, 2019 excludes tax benefits primarily related to tax audit reserve adjustments of $586 million, net mark-to-market adjustments of $132 million and integration costs of $12 million.  Adjusted income tax provision for the twelve months ended September 30, 2019 excludes the tax benefits primarily related to tax audit reserve adjustments of $586 million, net mark-to-market adjustments of $130 million, restructuring and impairment charges of $53 million, integration costs of $34 million, an environmental reserve of $28 million and transaction costs of $1 million, partially offset by tax provisions primarily related to new U.S. tax regulations of $226 million and valuation allowance adjustments of $76 million as a result of changes in U.S. tax law. Adjusted income tax provision for the three months ended September 30, 2018 excludes the tax benefits for changes in entity tax status of $139 million, net tax provision changes related to the U.S. Tax Reform legislation of $96 million, restructuring and impairment costs of $13 million, integration costs of $3 million and transaction costs of $2 million, partially offset by tax provisions related to valuation allowance adjustments of $56 million and net mark-to-market adjustments of $1 million.  Adjusted income tax provision for the twelve months ended September 30, 2018 excludes the tax benefits for changes in entity tax status of $139 million, restructuring and impairment costs of $36 million, tax audit settlements of $25 million, integration costs of $24 million and transaction costs of $3 million, partially offset by net tax provisions related to the U.S. Tax Reform legislation of $108 million, valuation allowance adjustments of $56 million, Scott Safety gain on sale of $30 million and net mark-to-market adjustments of $1 million.



































(8) An environmental charge for the twelve months ended September 30, 2019 of $140 million is excluded from the adjusted non-GAAP results.  The $140 million is related to remediation efforts to be undertaken to address contamination at our facilities in Marinette, Wisconsin.  A substantial portion of the reserve relates to the remediation of fire-fighting foams containing PFAS compounds at or near our Fire Technology Center in Marinette.

Diluted Earnings Per Share Reconciliation

























































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 costs, gain on sale of the Scott Safety business, net mark-to-market adjustments, restructuring and impairment costs, tax indemnification reserve release, environmental reserve, loss on extinguishment of debt, gain on sale of Power Solutions business, net of transaction and other costs, impact of ceasing the depreciation / amortization expense for the Power Solutions business as the business is held for sale 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.

The Company has presented forward-looking statements regarding adjusted EPS from continuing operations, organic net sales growth, organic adjusted EBITA growth, organic adjusted EBIT growth, adjusted segment EBITA margin, adjusted EBIT margin and adjusted free cash flow conversion for the full fiscal year of 2020, 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 and the effect of foreign currency exchange fluctuations. Our fiscal 2020 outlook for organic net sales and adjusted EBITA and EBIT growth also excludes the effect of acquisitions, divestitures and foreign currency. 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 2020 GAAP financial results.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow Reconciliation





























































The Company's press release contains financial information regarding free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion, which are non-GAAP performance measures. Free cash flow is defined as cash provided 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 businesses. Adjusted free cash flow conversion is defined as adjusted free cash flow divided by adjusted net income. Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in understanding the strength of the Company and its ability to generate cash.



































The following is the three months and twelve months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 reconciliation of free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion for continuing operations (unaudited):

Net Debt to Capitalization





























































The Company provides financial information regarding net debt as a percentage of total capitalization, which is a non-GAAP performance measure. The Company believes the percentage of total net debt to total capitalization is useful to understanding the Company's financial condition as it provides a review of the extent to which the Company relies on external debt financing for its funding and is a measure of risk to its shareholders. The following is the September 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018 calculation of net debt as a percentage of total capitalization (unaudited):
