Published
  • Q2 reported sales were flat versus prior year and increased 1% organically
  • Q2 GAAP EPS of $(0.41); Q2 Adjusted EPS of $0.78

CORK, Ireland, May 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls International plc (NYSE: JCI), a global leader for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, today reported fiscal second quarter 2024 GAAP earnings per share ("EPS") of $(0.41). Excluding special items, adjusted EPS was $0.78 (see attached footnotes for non-GAAP reconciliation).

Sales in the quarter of $6.7 billion were flat compared to the prior year on an as reported basis and increased 1% organically. GAAP net loss was $(277) million. Adjusted net income was $533 million.

"We are proud of the work underway at Johnson Controls as we delivered another successful quarter, underscored by accelerating sales growth and margin expansion," said George Oliver, Chairman and CEO. "We made great progress this quarter in further strengthening our balance sheet. Our record backlog provides visibility into the remainder of the fiscal year and we remain confident in our ability to deliver on our financial and operational commitments as we continue our transformation into a comprehensive solutions provider for commercial buildings."

Income and EPS amounts attributable to Johnson Controls ordinary shareholders($ millions, except per-share amounts)

The financial highlights presented in the tables below are in accordance with GAAP, unless otherwise indicated. All comparisons are to the fiscal second quarter of 2023.

Organic sales growth, adjusted segment EBITA, adjusted segment EBITA margin, adjusted corporate expense, adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, and adjusted free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures. For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures and detail of the special items, refer to the attached footnotes.

This press release includes forward-looking statements regarding organic revenue growth, adjusted segment EBITA margin improvement and adjusted EPS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are derived by excluding certain amounts from the corresponding financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The determination of the amounts excluded is 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 and the high variability of certain amounts, such as mark-to-market adjustments. Organic revenue growth 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 the necessary components of such GAAP measures without unreasonable effort or expense. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on the Company's fiscal 2024 third quarter and full year GAAP financial results.

A slide presentation to accompany the results can be found in the Investor Relations section of Johnson Controls' website at http://investors.johnsoncontrols.com.

Segment EBITA margin of 17.8% declined 200 basis points versus the prior year primarily due to unfavorable mix, a charge related to a product quality issue, and the favorable prior year impact of an acquisition earn-out liability. Adjusted segment EBITA excludes costs for a product quality issue, partially offset by a favorable earn-out liability adjustment in Q2 2024. Adjusted segment EBITA excludes a favorable earn-out liability adjustment in Q2 2023.

Adjusted income tax provision for the three and six months ended March 31, 2023 excludes the net tax benefit of pre-tax adjusting items of $38 million and $102 million, respectively.

(4) Management defines earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) as income before net financing charges, income taxes and noncontrolling interests. EBIT is a non-GAAP performance measure. Management believes this non-GAAP measure is useful to investors in understanding the ongoing operations and business trends of the Company.

(5) Adjusted segment EBITA excludes costs related to a product quality issue within the Company's Global Products business for the three and six months ended March 31, 2024. Management believes the exclusion of these costs is  useful to investors due to the unusual nature and magnitude of the expected related costs.

(6) Adjusted segment EBITA excludes a $40 million uninsured loss attributable to a fire at a warehouse in Menominee, Michigan.

The Company's press release and earnings presentation include forward-looking statements regarding organic revenue growth, adjusted free cash flow and adjusted EPS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are derived by excluding certain amounts from the corresponding financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The determination of the amounts excluded is 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 and the high variability of certain amounts, such as mark-to-market adjustments. Organic revenue growth 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 the necessary components of such GAAP measures without unreasonable effort or expense. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on the Company's fiscal 2024 third quarter and full year GAAP financial results.

 

2.  Net Income and Diluted Earnings Per Share Reconciliations

The Company's press release contains financial information regarding adjusted earnings per share and adjusted net income (loss) attributable to JCI, which are non-GAAP performance measures. The adjusting items shown in the table below are excluded because these items 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.

A reconciliation of diluted earnings per share as reported to adjusted diluted earnings per share and net income (loss) attributable to JCI to adjusted net income (loss) attributable to JCI for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023 is shown below (unaudited):

For the three months ended March 31, 2024, the total number of potential dilutive shares due to stock options, unvested restricted stock and unvested performance share awards was 1.6 million. However, these items were not included in the computation of diluted loss per share for the three months ended March 31, 2024, since to do so would decrease the loss per share. On an adjusted diluted outstanding share basis, inclusion of the effect of dilutive securities results in diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 680.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024.
