ITW Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

*Third quarter diluted EPS from continuing operations of $0.90 exceeds Company forecast midpoint of $0.88

GLENVIEW, Ill., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Illinois Tool Works Inc. (NYSE: ITW) today reported third quarter diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations of $0.90, two cents higher than the midpoint of the Company's forecast.  As noted in the Company's September 24, 2013 announcement, the third quarter forecasted EPS midpoint of $0.88 included a $0.14 reduction from the Industrial Packaging segment moving to discontinued operations and a $0.09 reduction related to a discrete tax charge.

Highlights for 2013 third quarter results versus the prior-year period included:

*Total Company operating revenues were $3.6 billion while operating income was $678 million. Excluding the impact of Decorative Surfaces 2012 results, total Company operating revenues grew 2.9 percent and operating income increased 8.4 percent.  Organic revenues grew 0.4 percent, with international organic revenues growing 2.9 percent and North American organic revenues declining 1.4 percent. Internationally, Asia Pacific organic revenues grew 6.9 percent, with China organic revenues increasing 21.5 percent.  In addition, European organic revenues grew 1.0 percent. The Company was faced with a difficult year-over-year comparison in its electronics assembly platform, which negatively impacted total Company organic revenue growth by 2.5 percent. Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP results, which exclude the 2012 impact of the divested Decorative Surfaces segment, are included in the attached exhibits.

*By segment, highlights included:

  • Automotive OEM's organic revenues increased 11.5 percent, with strong growth across all regions. By comparison, worldwide auto builds increased 4 percent in the quarter. Automotive OEM operating margins improved 200 basis points to 21.1 percent.
  • Food Equipment's organic revenues grew 4.4 percent, with across-the-board contributions from the North American and international equipment and service businesses. Food Equipment operating margins improved 90 basis points to 19.9 percent.
  • Construction Products organic revenues increased 3.3 percent due to 9.3 percent organic revenue growth in North America. Operating margins improved 250 basis points to 16.2 percent.

"We were pleased with our financial performance in the quarter and the progress we continue to make in executing our Enterprise initiatives," said Scott Santi, president and chief executive officer. "Third quarter operating margins of 19.0 percent were driven by an 80 basis point contribution from our enterprise initiatives.  On a year-to-date basis, free cash flow conversion was solidly above 100 percent of net income, and our adjusted after-tax return on average invested capital was 16.3 percent, up 110 basis points versus the same period last year.  In addition, we continued to make disciplined, return-oriented decisions with regard to capital allocation.  We completed two strategically targeted acquisitions in the quarter, and year-to-date we have returned nearly $1.6 billion to shareholders in the form of share repurchases and dividends."

The Company is now forecasting its full-year diluted income per share from continuing operations to be in a range of $3.56-$3.64. This EPS range assumes a full-year total revenue growth range of 1.0 percent to 2.0 percent. For the 2013 fourth quarter, the Company is forecasting diluted income per share from continuing operations to be in a range of $0.85-$0.93 and assumes a total revenue growth range of 2 percent to 5 percent.

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. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
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.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
SYS-CON Events announced today that MetraTech, now part of Ericsson, has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9–11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York, NY.

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
