"In 2012, we improved the strength of our business operations, delivering increased operating margins, and a 23 percent improvement in adjusted earnings per share despite a challenging economic backdrop in a number of our key end markets," said Michael W. Lamach, chairman and chief executive officer. "We are pleased with the progress we made during this past year. We made notable improvements in pricing capabilities, productivity and working capital management that helped to deliver the strong cash flow that supported our share buyback and dividend expansion. Our management team is focused on investing in multiple growth platforms identified in our planning process, as well as accelerating restructuring and cost reduction actions to generate sustained profitable growth in what we expect to be a slow growth economy in 2013."
Additional Highlights for the 2012 Fourth Quarter
Revenues: The company's reported revenues declined by 1 percent to $3,470 million, compared with revenues of $3,507 million for the 2011 fourth quarter. Total revenues, excluding the divested Hussmann business, were flat compared with 2011. U.S. revenues, excluding Hussmann, were flat compared with 2011, and revenues from international operations were also flat (up 1 percent excluding currency), as growth in Latin America and Asia was largely offset by declining activity in Europe.
Operating Income and Margin: Operating income for the 2012 fourth quarter was $367.5 million, an increase of 8 percent (up 11 percent when adjusted for impairment and Hussmann) compared with the 2011 fourth quarter. The fourth-quarter operating margin was 10.6 percent compared to an operating margin of 9.7 percent (9.6 percent when adjusted for impairment and Hussmann) for the same period of 2011. Pricing actions and operational excellence initiatives drove the increase in operating profits and margins. These improvements were partially offset by inflation, higher investment spending and unfavorable revenue mix.
Interest Expense and Other Income/Expense: Interest expense of $61 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 declined by approximately $9 million compared with the same period last year due to lower debt balances. Other income totaled $4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 and declined slightly compared with the 2011 fourth quarter.
Taxes: The company had a tax rate of 22 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012, including a $5 million tax benefit related to the Hussmann divestiture. Excluding this benefit, the tax rate was 24 percent. The company had an effective tax rate of 7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011, including a $5 million tax benefit resulting from the Hussmann divestiture. Excluding this benefit and the corresponding adjustment to the asset impairment charge, the effective tax rate was 9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Fourth-Quarter Business Review
Climate Solutions delivers energy-efficient solutions globally and includes Trane, which provides heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and building services, parts and controls for commercial buildings, and Thermo King, the leader in transport temperature control solutions.
The total results of the divested Hussmann refrigeration business are included through the first three quarters of 2011. The company's ownership interest in Hussmann was reported within other income/expense using the equity method of accounting for the fourth quarter of 2011 and for all of 2012. Fourth-quarter 2011 results also included approximately $37 million of revenues and $3 million of operating income from several Hussmann branch operations divested on November 30, 2011.
Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $1,839 million and declined by 3 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding Hussmann, revenue declined by 2 percent (down 1 percent excluding currency). Bookings, excluding Hussmann, declined by 1 percent year-over-year.
On a year-over-year basis, total commercial HVAC revenues were flat, with a low-single digit percent decline in equipment and systems offset by increased revenues from parts, services and solutions. Commercial revenues increased in the Americas and declined in Europe and Asia. Fourth-quarter bookings for commercial HVAC reflected a mid-single digit percentage improvement compared with the 2011 fourth quarter with gains in the Americas and Asia offsetting a slight decline in Europe. Total Thermo King refrigerated transport revenues decreased in the fourth quarter compared with last year, primarily due to declines in marine containers. Trailer and truck sales were up compared with last year as revenue gains in the Americas and Asia were partially offset by lower European volumes.
Fourth-quarter segment operating margin of 10.3 percent increased by 0.2 percentage points compared with 10.1 percent last year (excluding Hussmann, operating margin was 10.2 percent). The combination of pricing and productivity actions offset the negative impact of inflation, unfavorable revenue/volume mix and higher investment spending.
Industrial Technologies provides products, services and solutions to enhance customers' productivity, energy efficiency and operations. Products include compressed air systems, power tools, pumps, material handling equipment and golf and utility vehicles.
Total revenues in the fourth quarter of $765 million increased approximately 3 percent (up 4 percent excluding currency) compared with the fourth quarter of 2011. Air and Productivity revenues showed a low-single digit percentage increase, primarily due to gains in oil free air compressor sales. Bookings also increased by a low-single digit percentage year-over-year with gains in all geographic regions.
Club Car revenues increased by a high-single digit percentage compared with the fourth quarter of 2011, showing gains in golf cars and aftermarket activity. Bookings increased by a low-single digit percentage as golf-related markets continued to show slowly improving activity levels.
Fourth-quarter segment operating margin for Industrial Technologies was 16.1 percent, an increase of 0.8 percentage points compared with last year. The segment margin improvement was due to higher volumes, improved pricing and productivity, which were partially offset by inflation and investment spending. Air and Productivity operating margins exceeded 17 percent in the fourth quarter and exceeded 16 percent for full year 2012.
Residential Solutions includes the Trane and Schlage brands, which deliver safety, comfort and efficiency to homeowners throughout the Americas. Products, services and solutions include mechanical and electronic locks, HVAC systems, indoor air quality solutions and controls, and remote home management systems. Fourth-quarter revenues were $422 million, a decrease of approximately 5 percent (down 5 percent, excluding currency) compared with 2011. Bookings also declined by mid-single digit percentages year-over-year.
Total fourth quarter residential security revenues were down low-teen percentages compared with 2011 as a result of lower sales to "big box" customers, which offset increased year-over-year revenues from the new builder market and South American customers.
Residential HVAC revenues declined by a low-single digit percentage compared with fourth quarter 2011 results. 2012 fourth-quarter HVAC unit shipments were flat compared with last year. Fourth quarter 2012 year-over-year revenue comparisons were negatively impacted by significant fourth-quarter 2011 shipments related to planned inventory reductions. Excluding the impact of 2011 inventory reductions, fourth-quarter 2012 unit shipments increased by high-single digit percentages compared with last year.
Fourth-quarter segment operating margin was 6.9 percent and increased by 8.1 percentage points compared with negative (1.2 percent) recorded in 2011. The segment margin increase was due to improved pricing and productivity in 2012 and easy comparisons with the fourth quarter of 2011 when the residential HVAC business significantly reduced inventory levels.
Security Technologies is a leading global supplier of commercial security products and services. The segment's market-leading products include mechanical and electronic security products, biometric and access-control systems, and security and time and attendance scheduling software.
Fourth-quarter revenues of $445 million increased by approximately 7 percent (up 7 percent excluding currency) compared with the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenues in the Americas increased by high-single digit percentages as price improvements and market share gains in mechanical products more than offset the impact of stagnant commercial building markets. Revenues in overseas markets increased by a mid-single digit percentage as declines in European revenues were more than offset by strong growth in Asia.
Overall segment bookings were up mid-teens, with bookings improvement in the Americas and Asia and declines in Europe. Fourth-quarter segment operating margin was 20.6 percent, up by 1.5 percentage points compared with 19.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011. The higher segment operating margin was due to improved volume, productivity and higher pricing, which were partially offset by inflation and higher investment spending.
Balance Sheet and Share Repurchase
Working capital was 2.8 percent of revenues at the end of the fourth quarter of 2012. Available cash flow for the fourth quarter was $354 million and the company generated $918 million of available cash flow in 2012. Cash balances and total debt balances were $0.9 billion and $3.2 billion, respectively, at the end of the fourth quarter. The company purchased approximately 10 million shares during the fourth quarter and purchased a total of 18.4 million shares for $840 million during 2012.
Spin-off of Commercial and Residential Security Businesses
On December 10, 2012, the company announced that its Board of Directors unanimously approved a plan to spin off its commercial and residential security businesses (the "new security" company). The separation will result in two standalone companies: Ingersoll Rand, a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments through its industrial, transport refrigeration, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) businesses; and the new security company, a leading global provider of electronic and mechanical security products and services, delivering comprehensive solutions to commercial and residential customers.
The company expects the spin-off, which is intended to be tax free to shareholders, to be completed prior to year-end 2013. Upon completion of the spin-off, Ingersoll-Rand plc will cease to have any ownership interest in the new security company, and the new security company will become an independent publicly traded company. The new security company is anticipated to be an Irish plc.
For 2013 the company expects moderate growth in industrial markets, global parts and service, and across most of the company's businesses in Asia and Latin America. Refrigerated transport markets and commercial HVAC replacement activity are expected to demonstrate slow year-over-year growth, especially in Europe where performance is hampered by low economic growth in key markets. The North American non-residential construction market is continuing its weak and uneven demand pattern with moderate growth in commercial markets, partially offsetting ongoing weakness in key institutional markets. Activity in North American consumer related markets, especially residential HVAC, is expected to continue its ongoing recovery for 2013 with moderate increases in demand levels.
For comparison purposes, the 2013 forecast is based on the current Ingersoll Rand business structure, with four current operating sectors in place for the full 12 months of 2013. Revenues for the full-year 2013 are expected to be in the range of $14.2 billion to $14.6 billion. Full-year adjusted EPS from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $3.45 to $3.65. Costs related to the impending spin-off of the residential and commercial security businesses and restructuring expenses are expected to be in the range of $0.40 to $0.60 per share. Including these costs, EPS for 2013 continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $2.85 to $3.25. The forecast includes a tax rate of 23 percent for continuing operations and an average diluted share count for the full year of approximately 300 million shares. Available cash flow for full-year 2013 is expected to approximate $1.1 billion, excluding restructuring expenses and costs related to the spin-off of the security business.
First-quarter 2013 revenues are expected to be in the range of $3.1 billion to $3.2 billion. Adjusted EPS from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2013 are expected to be in the range of $0.35 to $0.40, with reported EPS of $0.15 to $0.20, including security business spin-off and restructuring costs equal to approximately $0.10 per share and potential non-U.S. discrete tax charges equal to approximately $0.10 per share. The first-quarter forecast reflects an ongoing tax rate of 25 percent for continuing operations and an average diluted share count of approximately 302 million shares.
