“Honeywell delivered another quarter of high-quality financial results, with organic growth of five percent, segment margin expansion of 120 basis points, and earnings per share of $1.75, up 16 percent2 year-over-year,” said Darius Adamczyk, President and Chief Executive Officer of Honeywell. “This was a standout quarter for us when it comes to organic growth. Our Aerospace aftermarket business grew more than seven percent, our warehouse automation business continued to grow at a double-digit pace, and there was broad strength across Performance Materials and Technologies, led by 25 percent organic sales growth in UOP. We also saw good momentum in orders and backlog, with double-digit backlog growth in UOP, Intelligrated, Defense, and Honeywell Building Solutions, positioning us for future growth.

“The investments we have made in people, capital expenditures, research and development, and M&A are delivering outstanding growth for our shareowners,” Adamczyk said. “Also, we continue to improve the cost structure of our businesses through ongoing restructuring actions, and in the third quarter, we dedicated approximately $120 million to new projects.

“Last week, we announced our intention to spin our Homes and Global Distribution business and our Transportation Systems business into two independent public companies by the end of next year. The spun businesses will benefit from being able to make independent investment decisions that will better position them for growth and value creation for decades to come. After completion of the spins, Honeywell will have a more focused and growth-oriented portfolio that benefits from cross-Honeywell synergies. These actions will position the company to deliver sustained financial outperformance,” Adamczyk continued. “Honeywell is well positioned in both the short and long term, and we anticipate a strong finish to 2017.”

Honeywell also reaffirmed its full-year earnings-per-share guidance of $7.05 to $7.10, up nine to 10 percent year-over-year, excluding divestitures, any pension mark-to-market adjustments, and 2016 debt refinancing charges. Earlier this month, the company raised the low end of the range by five cents.

Honeywell will discuss the results during its investor conference call today starting at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Third Quarter Performance

Honeywell sales for the third quarter were up five percent on an organic basis and up three percent on a reported basis. The difference between reported and organic sales relates to the 2016 spin-off of the former Resins and Chemicals business in Performance Materials and Technologies and the 2016 divestiture of the Aerospace government services business, partially offset by the acquisition of Intelligrated in Safety and Productivity Solutions and the impact of foreign currency translation. The third-quarter financial results can be found in Tables 1 and 2, below.

Aerospace sales for the third quarter were up four percent on an organic basis driven by growth in Commercial Aftermarket and lower year-over-year customer incentives, strength in U.S. defense, and continued recovery in commercial vehicles in Transportation Systems. Segment margin expanded 290 bps to 21.3 percent, primarily driven by the lower customer incentives, productivity net of inflation, and the favorable impact of the 2016 divestiture of the government services.

Home and Building Technologies sales for the third quarter were up two percent on an organic basis driven by Smart Energy program roll-outs, air and water product sales in China, and continued growth in the Distribution business. Segment margin expanded 10 bps to 16.4 percent, driven by restructuring benefits, productivity net of inflation, and commercial excellence, partially offset by the unfavorable impact of higher sales from lower margin products and investments for growth, including research and development.

Performance Materials and Technologies sales for the third quarter were up 10 percent on an organic basis driven by strong growth in every business, including 25 percent growth in UOP driven by robust catalyst, licensing, equipment, and gas processing volumes; continued demand for Solstice® low-global-warming products in Advanced Materials; and short-cycle demand within Honeywell Process Solutions. Segment margin expanded 170 bps to 23.3 percent, primarily driven by commercial excellence, productivity net of inflation, and the favorable impact from the spin-off of the former Resins and Chemicals business.

Safety and Productivity Solutions sales for the third quarter were up 3 percent on an organic basis driven by increased demand for industrial safety products, voice-enabled workflow solutions and Movilizer software, and double-digit organic sales growth at Intelligrated, a leading provider of warehouse automation solutions, which Honeywell acquired in 2016. Segment margin expanded 40 bps to 15.1 percent, primarily driven by productivity net of inflation, partially offset by acquisition amortization and integration costs. Excluding the impact of acquisitions, segment margin expanded 190 bps.

We define free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities less cash expenditures for property, plant and equipment.

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, 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.

(1) Earnings per share attributable to 2016 divestitures utilizes weighted average shares of 774.4 million and a
blended tax rate of 32.9% for the three months ended September 30, 2016.

(2) The Company has and continues to have an ongoing level of restructuring activities, for which there is a
planned amount of restructuring-related charges. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, the Company
funded approximately $60 million of additional restructuring enabled by a lower than expected effective tax rate for
the period. We believe that the exclusion of this additional restructuring provides a more comparable measure of
year-on-year results. Earnings per share attributable to additional restructuring uses a tax rate of 26% for three
months ended September 30, 2017.

We believe earnings per share adjusted to normalize for the expected effective tax rate of 26% for the most
recently completed fiscal quarter (as presented in prior guidance for such quarter) and to exclude the 2016
divestitures is a measure that is useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and
in analysis of ongoing operating trends.

(1) Utilizes weighted average shares of approximately 772 million and an expected effective tax rate of approximately 22%.

(2) Utilizes weighted average shares of 775.3 million.  Pension mark-to-market expense uses a blended tax rate of 21.3%.  Debt refinancing
expense uses a tax rate of 26.5%.  Earnings attributable to 2016 divestitures use a blended tax rate of 33.9%.

We believe EPS, excluding pension mark-to-market expense, debt refinancing expense and earnings attributable to 2016 divestitures is a
measure that is useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends. 
Management cannot reliably predict or estimate, without unreasonable effort, the pension mark-to-market expense as it is dependent on
macroeconomic factors, such as interest rates and the return generated on invested pension plan assets.  We therefore do not include an
estimate for the pension mark-to-market expense in this reconciliation.  Management is not currently forecasting an impact to earnings per
hare arising from a debt refinancing or divestiture transaction.  Based on economic and industry conditions, future developments and other
relevant factors, these assumptions are subject to change.
