"We expect 2012 to be another year of strong execution for Honeywell, building on an established track record over the past decade," said Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote.  "We're achieving good sales growth, record margins, and double digit EPS growth while continuing to generate strong free cash flow. Importantly, we'll have achieved these results while continuing to invest in our future growth.  We've done a lot over the past decade to transform Honeywell and today we're achieving top-tier performance with a differentiated and balanced mix of long- and short-cycle businesses, a successful pipeline of new products, geographic expansion, and continued focus on our key initiatives. While we're planning for a continued slow-growth macro environment in 2013, we will remain flexible and adhere to our disciplined focus on growth, efficiency and competitiveness, driving sales and margins higher.  Our productivity enablers, including the Honeywell Operating System, Functional Transformation, Organizational Efficiency, and Velocity Product Development™, will continue to be long-term differentiators for the company and we anticipate that each will be a meaningful contributor to strong earnings growth and cash generation in 2013."

Intermec Acquisition

Honeywell also announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Intermec (NYSE: IN), a leading provider of mobile computing, radio frequency identification solutions (RFID) and bar code, label and receipt printers for use in warehousing, supply chain, field service and manufacturing environments for $10 per share in cash, or an aggregate purchase price of approximately $600 million, net of cash and debt acquired. The transaction is expected to further enhance Honeywell's scale in rugged mobile computing devices, building on its Scanning & Mobility franchise within the company's Automation and Control Solutions portfolio.

The purchase price translates to approximately ten times Intermec's trailing 12 months (TTM) earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) as of September 30, 2012, excluding certain corporate and public company costs, or approximately five times on a synergy adjusted run-rate basis. The transaction is expected to close by the end of the second quarter of 2013 pending Intermec shareholder approval and following customary regulatory reviews.

"The addition of Intermec is a natural extension to our Scanning & Mobility business, which was established through the successful acquisitions of Hand Held Products, Metrologic and EMS," said Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions President and Chief Executive Officer Roger Fradin. "While Intermec strengthens our core scanning and mobile computing business, it opens up entirely new opportunities in RFID, voice solutions and barcode and receipt printing segments that we currently don't serve. It expands our product offerings and strengthens our intellectual property portfolio putting us in position to be a technology leader for years to come in the highly attractive automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) industry.  Intermec has extensive engineering capability and broad sales reach that we look forward to integrating into our existing organization in an effort to build a leading position in the AIDC marketplace. Once again, our world class acquisition integration process will deliver value to shareholders."

Upon completion of the acquisition, Intermec would become part of Honeywell Scanning & Mobility in Honeywell's Automation and Control Solutions business. Intermec employs approximately 2,200 employees and operates more than 65 offices worldwide, serving nearly every region globally. The company is headquartered in Everett, Washington.

Although the transaction would be dilutive in 2013 by three to four cents, the estimated impact is included in the company's announced 2013 earnings per share guidance range, and Honeywell anticipates Intermec to be accretive in 2014.

Reconciliation of Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow, Prior to Cash Pension Contributions (Unaudited)

(Dollars in millions)











2012 Guidance








Cash provided by operating activities


 ~$3,600 








Expenditures for property, plant and equipment


 ~(900) 








Free cash flow


 ~$2,700 








Cash pension contributions


 ~1,000 








Free cash flow, prior to cash pension contributions


 ~$3,700 













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, and to pay dividends, repurchase stock, repay debt obligations prior to their maturities, or make cash pension contributions. 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.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality.
