"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.
