UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION
AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements at March 31, 2013 and for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 are unaudited, but in the opinion of management include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods. The results reported in these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should not necessarily be taken as indicative of results that may be expected for the entire year. The financial information included herein should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes in our Annual Report to Shareowners (2012 Annual Report) incorporated by reference to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for calendar year 2012 (2012 Form 10-K).
Note 1: Acquisitions, Dispositions, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets
Business Acquisitions and Dispositions. During the quarter ended March 31, 2013, our cash investment in business acquisitions was $24 million, and consisted of a number of small acquisitions in our commercial businesses.
On February 7, 2013, we completed the acquisition of Grupo Ascensores Enor, S.A. (Enor), a privately held company headquartered in Spain with operations in Spain and Portugal, which designs, manufactures, installs and services elevators. Enor's 2012 sales were approximately $50 million. Under the terms of the transaction, Zardoya Otis, S.A. (ZOSA), a non-wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, exchanged publicly traded shares of ZOSA with a fair value of approximately $240 million as of the transaction completion date for all of the shares of Enor.
On July 26, 2012, UTC acquired Goodrich Corporation (Goodrich), a global supplier of systems and services to the aerospace and defense industry with 2011 sales of $8.1 billion. Goodrich products include aircraft nacelles and interior, actuation, landing and electronic systems. Under the terms of the agreement, Goodrich shareholders received $127.50 in cash for each share of Goodrich common stock they owned on July 26, 2012. This equated to a total enterprise value of $18.3 billion, including $1.9 billion in net debt assumed. The acquired Goodrich businesses were combined with the legacy Hamilton Sundstrand businesses to form the new UTC Aerospace Systems segment. The Goodrich acquisition and the formation of UTC Aerospace Systems provides increased scale, financial strength and complementary product offerings, allowing us to significantly strengthen our position in the aerospace and defense industry, create aftermarket efficiencies for our customers, accelerate our ability to drive innovation within the aerospace industry, and enhance our ability to support our customers with more integrated systems. This acquisition, coupled with our acquisition of an additional interest in IAE International Aero Engines AG (IAE), as discussed below, further advances UTC's strategy of focusing on our core businesses.
To finance the cash consideration for the Goodrich acquisition and pay related fees, expenses and other amounts due and payable, we utilized the previously disclosed net proceeds of approximately $9.6 billion from the $9.8 billion of long-term notes issued on June 1, 2012, the net proceeds of approximately $1.1 billion from the equity units issued on June 18, 2012, $3.2 billion from the issuance of commercial paper during July 2012, and $2.0 billion of proceeds borrowed under our April 24, 2012 term loan credit agreement. For the remainder of the cash consideration, we utilized approximately $0.5 billion of cash and cash equivalents generated from operating activities.
Preliminary Allocation of Consideration Transferred to Net Assets Acquired:
The following amounts represent the preliminary determination of the fair value of identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed from the Goodrich acquisition. The final determination of the fair value of certain assets and liabilities will be completed within the one year measurement period from the date of acquisition as required by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 805, “Business Combinations”. The size and breadth of the Goodrich acquisition will necessitate the use of this measurement period to adequately analyze and assess a number of the factors used in establishing the asset and liability fair values as of the acquisition date including the significant contractual and operational factors underlying the customer relationship intangible asset; the final negotiated sales values for Goodrich businesses that were required to be sold as part of the regulatory approval process of the Goodrich acquisition (see further discussion below); the assumptions underpinning certain reserves such as those for environmental obligations, and the related tax impacts of any changes made. Any potential adjustments made could be material in relation to the preliminary values presented below (as of March 31, 2013 there have been no material adjustments):

In order to allocate the consideration transferred for Goodrich, the fair values of all identifiable assets and liabilities needed to be established. For accounting and financial reporting purposes, fair value is defined under FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” as the price that would be received upon sale of an asset or the amount paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Market participants are assumed to be buyers and sellers in the principal (most advantageous) market for the asset or liability. Additionally, fair value measurements for an asset assume the highest and best use of that asset by market participants. Use of different estimates and judgments could yield different results.
In determining the fair value of identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed, a review was conducted for any significant contingent assets or liabilities existing as of the acquisition date. As of March 31, 2013, no significant contingencies related to existing legal or government action have been identified. Based upon our existing practices and phase II environmental assessments done on a number of Goodrich sites, we determined that environmental liability obligations of $232 million were assumed in connection with the acquisition.
The fair values of the customer relationship and related program intangible assets, which include the related aerospace program original equipment manufacturing (OEM) and aftermarket cash flows, were determined by using an “income approach” which is the most common valuation approach utilized. Under this approach, the net earnings attributable to the asset or liability being measured are isolated using the discounted projected net cash flows. These projected cash flows are isolated from the projected cash flows of the combined asset group over the remaining economic life of the intangible asset or liability being measured. Both the amount and the duration of the cash flows are considered from a market participant perspective. Our estimates of market participant net cash flows considered historical and projected pricing, remaining developmental effort, operational performance including company specific synergies, aftermarket retention, product life cycles, material and labor pricing, and other relevant customer, contractual and market factors. Where appropriate, the net cash flows are probability-adjusted to reflect the uncertainties associated with the underlying assumptions, as well as the risk profile of the net cash flows utilized in the valuation. The probability-adjusted future cash flows are then discounted to present value using an appropriate discount rate. The customer relationship and related program intangible assets are being amortized on a straight-line basis (which approximates the economic pattern of benefits) over the estimated economic life of the underlying programs of 10 to 25 years.

Table of Contents

We also identified customer contractual obligations on certain OEM development programs where the expected costs exceed the expected revenue under contract. We measured these liabilities under the measurement provisions of FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”, which is based on the price to transfer the obligation to a market participant at the measurement date, assuming that the liability will remain outstanding in the marketplace. Based on the estimated net cash outflows of the OEM developmental programs plus a reasonable contracting profit margin required to transfer the contracts to market participants, we recorded assumed liabilities of approximately $2 billion. These liabilities will be liquidated in accordance with the underlying economic pattern of obligations, as reflected by the net cash outflows incurred on the OEM contracts. Total consumption of the contractual obligation through the next five years is expected to be as follows: $204 million remaining in 2013, $292 million in 2014, $221 million in 2015, $236 million in 2016, and $220 million in 2017.
Goodrich had not recorded an income tax liability on the unremitted earnings of its non-U.S. subsidiaries, which were approximately $853 million as of December 31, 2011. In connection with the Goodrich acquisition, UTC has made a determination to repatriate certain of these unremitted earnings, making such amounts subject to both U.S. and non-U.S. income taxes. Accordingly, an income tax liability of $219 million was recorded in purchase accounting for the unremitted earnings no longer considered permanently reinvested.
In 2010, Pratt & Whitney entered into a preferred supplier contract with Goodrich for the development and subsequent production of nacelles for the PW1500G (Bombardier C Series) and PW1200G (Mitsubishi Regional Jet). That preferred supplier contract replaced previous contracts and preliminary Memorandum of Understandings entered into in 2006 and 2008. Under the 2010 agreement, Pratt & Whitney agreed to fund Goodrich's non-recurring development effort and established a recurring price for the production nacelles. Prior to the date of the Goodrich acquisition, Pratt & Whitney and Goodrich had asserted claims against each other in a contractual dispute and would have ultimately arbitrated the matter were it not for the acquisition. In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 805, “Business Combinations”, pre-existing relationships must be effectively settled at acquisition as the relationships become intercompany relationships upon acquisition and are eliminated in the post-combination financial statements. Any resulting settlement gains or losses should be measured at fair value and recorded on the acquisition date. Accordingly, a $46 million gain was recorded in other income by Pratt & Whitney in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 based upon a third party determination of the probability-weighted outcome had the matter gone to arbitration.
Under Goodrich's pre-existing management continuity arrangements (MCAs), we assumed change-in-control obligations related to certain executives at Goodrich. We evaluated the change-in-control provisions governed by the MCAs and for certain of the executives, we determined that we had assumed liabilities of approximately $74 million as the benefit payments were effectively single trigger arrangements in substance. We measured the assumed liability based on fair value concepts of FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements”, using weighted average techniques of possible outcomes of the employees electing to receive such benefits. We expensed approximately $12 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 for MCAs where we amended the term of the MCAs beyond the original expiration date for certain executives.
Supplemental Pro-Forma Data:
Goodrich's results of operations have been included in UTC's financial statements for the periods subsequent to the completion of the acquisition on July 26, 2012. The following unaudited supplemental pro-forma data for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 presents consolidated information as if the acquisition had been completed on January 1, 2011. There were no significant pro-forma adjustments required for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The pro-forma results were calculated by combining the results of UTC with the stand-alone results of Goodrich for the pre-acquisition periods, which were adjusted to account for certain costs which would have been incurred during this pre-acquisition period:

1 Added the additional amortization of the acquired Goodrich intangible assets recognized at fair value in purchase accounting and eliminated the historical Goodrich intangible asset amortization expense.
2 Added the additional utilization of the Goodrich contractual customer obligation recognized in purchase accounting.
3 Removed the UTC/Goodrich fees that were incurred in connection with the acquisition of Goodrich from the first quarter of 2012, and considered those fees as incurred during the first quarter of 2011.
4 Added the additional interest expense for the indebtedness we incurred to finance the acquisition of Goodrich and reduced interest expense for the debt fair value adjustment which would have been amortized.
The unaudited supplemental pro-forma financial information does not reflect the potential realization of cost savings relating to the integration of the two companies. Further, the pro-forma data should not be considered indicative of the results that would have occurred if the acquisition and related financing had been consummated on January 1, 2011, nor are they indicative of future results.
In connection with regulatory approval of UTC's acquisition of Goodrich, regulatory authorities required UTC to dispose of the Goodrich electric power systems and the Goodrich pumps and engine controls businesses. Pursuant to regulatory obligations, these businesses had been held separately from UTC's and Goodrich's ongoing businesses since the acquisition of Goodrich by UTC. On March 18, 2013, we completed the sale of the Goodrich pumps and engine controls business to Triumph Group, Inc., and on March 26, 2013, we completed the sale of the Goodrich electric power systems business to Safran. Combined proceeds from the sales of the two businesses were approximately $600 million.
In 2012, the UTC Board of Directors approved plans for the divestiture of a number of non-core businesses. Cash generated from these divestitures is being used to repay debt incurred to finance the acquisition of Goodrich. See Note 2 for further discussion.
On June 29, 2012, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce plc (Rolls-Royce), MTU Aero Engines AG (MTU), and Japanese Aero Engines Corporation (JAEC), participants in the IAE collaboration, completed a restructuring of their interests in IAE. Under the terms of the agreement, Rolls-Royce sold its ownership and collaboration interests in IAE to Pratt & Whitney, while also entering into an agreement to license its V2500 intellectual property to Pratt & Whitney. In exchange for the increased ownership and collaboration interests and intellectual property license, Pratt & Whitney paid Rolls-Royce $1.5 billion at closing with additional payments due to Rolls-Royce during the fifteen year period following closing of the purchase, conditional upon each hour flown by V2500-powered aircraft in service at the closing. The collaboration interest and intellectual property licenses are reflected as intangible assets and will be amortized in relation to the economic benefits received over the remaining estimated 30 year life of the V2500 program. As a result of these transactions, Pratt & Whitney holds a 61% net interest in the collaboration and a 49.5% ownership interest in IAE. IAE’s business purpose is to coordinate the design, development, manufacturing and product support of the V2500 program through involvement with the collaborators. IAE retains limited equity with the primary economics of the V2500 program passed to the participants in the separate collaboration arrangement. As such, we have determined that IAE is a variable interest entity, and Pratt & Whitney its primary beneficiary under the criteria established in the FASB ASC Topic “Consolidations” and has, therefore, been consolidated. The carrying amounts and classification of assets and liabilities for IAE in our Consolidated Balance Sheet as of March 31, 2013 are as follows:

The customer relationship intangible assets are being amortized on a straight-line basis as it approximates the underlying economic pattern of benefit. The IAE collaboration intangible is being amortized based upon the economic pattern of benefits as represented by the underlying cash flows. As these cash flows have been negative to date, no amortization has yet been recorded. Amortization of intangible assets for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $175 million, compared with $99 million for the same period of 2012.

Note 2: Discontinued Operations
In 2012, the UTC Board of Directors approved plans for the divestiture of a number of non-core businesses. Cash generated from these divestitures is being used to repay debt incurred to finance the Goodrich acquisition. These divestitures, when completed, are expected to generate approximately $3 billion in net cash, on an after-tax basis.
The legacy Hamilton Sundstrand Industrial businesses, as well as Clipper Windpower (Clipper), Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne (Rocketdyne) and UTC Power all met the "held-for-sale" criteria in 2012. The results of operations, including the net realized gain and expected losses on disposition, and the related cash flows which result from these non-core businesses, have been reclassified to Discontinued Operations in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income and Cash Flows. The dispositions of Clipper and the legacy Hamilton Sundstrand Industrial businesses were completed in 2012.
On July 23, 2012, we announced an agreement to sell our Rocketdyne unit to GenCorp Inc. We expect to complete the sale of the business mid-year 2013, pending the satisfaction of closing conditions, including regulatory approval. We are taking significant actions required to satisfy these conditions.
On February 12, 2013, we completed the disposition of UTC Power to ClearEdge Power. The disposition resulted in payments by UTC totaling $48 million, which included capitalization of the business prior to the sale and interim funding of operations as the buyer took control of a loss generating business. We have no continuing involvement with the UTC Power business post disposition.
Although the Board of Directors also approved the sale of the Pratt & Whitney Power Systems business, it was not reclassified to Discontinued Operations due to our expected level of continuing involvement in the business post-sale. The sale of Pratt & Whitney Power Systems is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2013.
The following summarized financial information related to Rocketdyne, and UTC Power (up to the point of sale) has been segregated from continuing operations and reported as discontinued operations:

The computation of diluted earnings per share excludes the effect of the potential exercise of stock awards, including stock appreciation rights and stock options, when the average market price of the common stock is lower than the exercise price of the related stock awards during the period. These outstanding stock awards are not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because the effect would be anti-dilutive. For the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, there were no anti-dilutive stock awards excluded from the computation. There was no impact on diluted earnings per share due to our equity unit offering in 2012.

As of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, inventory includes capitalized contract development costs of $809 million and $823 million, respectively, related to certain aerospace programs. These capitalized costs are liquidated as production units are delivered to the customer. The capitalized contract development costs within inventory principally relate to costs capitalized on Sikorsky’s CH-148 contract with the Canadian Government. The CH-148 is a derivative of the H-92, a military variant of the S-92.

At March 31, 2013, we had revolving credit agreements with various banks permitting aggregate borrowings of up to $4 billion pursuant to a $2 billion revolving credit agreement and a $2 billion multicurrency revolving credit agreement, both of which expire in November 2016. As of March 31, 2013, there were no borrowings under either of these revolving credit agreements. The undrawn portions of these revolving credit agreements are also available to serve as backup facilities for the issuance of commercial paper. As of March 31, 2013, our maximum commercial paper borrowing authority as set by our Board of Directors was $4 billion. We use our commercial paper borrowings for general corporate purposes, including the funding of potential acquisitions and repurchases of our common stock.
On December 6, 2012, we announced that we had commenced cash tender offers for six series of outstanding notes issued by Goodrich. These offers expired on January 7, 2013. Approximately $637 million in aggregate principal amount of notes subject to the tender offer and $126 million of the fair value adjustment were repaid, with $635 million in aggregate principal amount being eligible for the early tender premium and approximately $2 million in aggregate principal amount being paid on January 8, 2013. An extinguishment loss of approximately $26 million was recognized within Interest expense, net during 2012.
Long-term debt consisted of the following:

We have an existing universal shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for an indeterminate amount of equity and debt securities for future issuance, subject to our internal limitations on the amount of equity and debt to be issued under this shelf registration statement.
Note 6: Income Taxes
We conduct business globally and, as a result, UTC or one or more of our subsidiaries files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state and foreign jurisdictions. In the normal course of business we are subject to examination by taxing authorities throughout the world, including such major jurisdictions as Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. With few exceptions, we are no longer subject to U.S. federal, state and local, or non-U.S. income tax examinations for years before 1998.
In the ordinary course of business, there is inherent uncertainty in quantifying our income tax positions. We assess our income tax positions and record tax benefits for all years subject to examination based upon management’s evaluation of the facts, circumstances, and information available at the reporting date. For those tax positions where we believe it is more likely than not that a tax benefit will be sustained, we have recorded the largest amount of tax benefit with a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with a taxing authority that has full knowledge of all relevant information. For those income tax positions where it is not more likely than not that a tax benefit will be sustained, no tax benefit has been recognized in the financial statements. Where applicable, associated interest has also been recognized; interest accrued in relation to unrecognized tax benefits is recorded in interest expense. Penalties, if incurred, would be recognized as a component of income tax expense.
It is reasonably possible that a net reduction within a range of $40 million to $340 million of unrecognized tax benefits may occur within the next twelve months as a result of additional worldwide uncertain tax positions, the revaluation of current uncertain tax positions arising from developments in examinations, in appeals or in the courts, or the closure of tax statutes. A portion of this net reduction may impact the Company’s income tax expense. Not included in the range is €176 million (approximately $228 million) of tax benefits related to certain deductions claimed in France for tax years 2008 through 2010 that the French Revenue Authority has proposed to disallow. During the quarter, the French Revenue Authority commenced examination activity for tax year 2011. Also, not included in the range is €203 million (approximately $263 million) of tax benefits that we have claimed related to a 1998 German reorganization. A portion of these tax benefits was denied by the German Tax Office on July 5, 2012, as a result of the audit of tax years 1999 to 2000. On August 3, 2012, the Company filed suit in the German Tax Court and expects to litigate this case. In 2008 the German Federal Tax Court denied benefits to another taxpayer in a case involving a German tax law relevant to our reorganization. The determination of the German Federal Tax Court on this other matter was appealed to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) to determine if the underlying German tax law is violative of European Union (EU) principles. On September 17, 2009 the ECJ issued an opinion in this case that is generally favorable to the other taxpayer and referred the case back to the German Federal Tax Court for further consideration of certain related issues. In May 2010, the German Federal Tax Court released its decision, in which it resolved certain tax issues that may be relevant to our audit and remanded the case to a lower court for further development. After consideration of the ECJ decision and the latest German Federal Tax Court decision, we continue to believe that it is more likely than not that the relevant German tax law is violative of EU principles and we have not accrued tax expense for this matter. As we continue to monitor developments related to this matter, it may become necessary for us to accrue tax expense and related interest.
UTC tax returns for the years 2006 through 2008 are currently before the Appeals Division of the IRS (IRS Appeals) for resolution discussions regarding certain proposed adjustments with which UTC does not agree. These discussions are expected to continue through 2013. Tax returns for the years 2009 and 2010 are under review by the Examination Division of the IRS (IRS Examination), which is expected to continue into 2014. Additionally, the Company expects a final settlement in 2013 of interest relating to the closure of IRS audits of UTC tax returns for the years through 2005. All audit activity for the years through 2005 was concluded in 2012, and the IRS is expected to resolve related interest matters before the end of 2013.
The Company is currently engaged in litigation regarding the proper timing of certain deductions taken by Goodrich in its tax years 2000 and 2001, prior to its acquisition by UTC. The Company is also engaged in litigation with respect to a separate issue involving the proper timing of deductions taken by Goodrich in its tax years 2005 and 2006, prior to its acquisition by UTC. Both of these matters are expected to continue through 2013. Goodrich tax years 2007 and 2008, prior to its acquisition by UTC, are currently before IRS Appeals for resolution discussions regarding certain disputed proposed adjustments and are expected to continue through 2013. Goodrich tax years 2009 and 2010, prior to its acquisition by UTC, are currently under review by IRS Examination, which is expected to conclude in 2013.

2013 Actions. During the three months ended March 31, 2013, we initiated restructuring actions relating to ongoing cost reduction efforts, including workforce reductions and the consolidation of field operations. We recorded net pre-tax restructuring costs totaling $20 million, including $6 million in cost of sales and $14 million in selling, general and administrative expenses.

Table of Contents

We expect the actions initiated in the three months ended March 31, 2013 to result in net workforce reductions of approximately 300 hourly and salaried employees, the exiting of approximately 200,000 net square feet of facilities and the disposal of assets associated with exited facilities. As of March 31, 2013, we have completed net workforce reductions of approximately 150 employees. We are targeting the majority of the remaining workforce and all facility related cost reduction actions for completion during 2013 and 2014. No specific plans for significant other actions have been finalized at this time.

2012 Actions. During the three months ended March 31, 2013, we recorded net pre-tax restructuring costs totaling $29 million for restructuring actions initiated in 2012, including $20 million in cost of sales and $9 million in selling, general and administrative expenses. The 2012 actions relate to ongoing cost reduction efforts, including workforce reductions and the consolidation of field operations.
As of March 31, 2013, we have completed net workforce reductions of approximately 5,500 employees of an expected 7,100 employees, and have exited approximately 1.4 million net square feet of facilities of an expected 2.7 million net square feet. We are targeting the majority of the remaining workforce and facility related cost reduction actions for completion during 2013 and 2014.

2011 Actions. As of March 31, 2013, we have approximately $26 million of accrual balances remaining related to 2011 actions.
Note 9: Financial Instruments
We enter into derivative instruments for risk management purposes only, including derivatives designated as hedging instruments under the Derivatives and Hedging Topic of the FASB ASC and those utilized as economic hedges. We operate internationally and, in the normal course of business, are exposed to fluctuations in interest rates, foreign exchange rates and commodity prices. These fluctuations can increase the costs of financing, investing and operating the business. We have used derivative instruments, including swaps, forward contracts and options to manage certain foreign currency, interest rate and commodity price exposures.
By their nature, all financial instruments involve market and credit risks. We enter into derivative and other financial instruments with major investment grade financial institutions and have policies to monitor the credit risk of those counterparties. We limit counterparty exposure and concentration of risk by diversifying counterparties. While there can be no assurance, we do not anticipate any material non-performance by any of these counterparties.
Foreign Currency Forward Contracts. We manage our foreign currency transaction risks to acceptable limits through the use of derivatives that hedge forecasted cash flows associated with foreign currency transaction exposures, which are accounted for as cash flow hedges, as we deem appropriate. To the extent these derivatives are effective in offsetting the variability of the hedged cash flows, and otherwise meet the hedge accounting criteria of the Derivatives and Hedging Topic of the FASB ASC, the changes in the derivatives’ fair values are not included in current earnings but are included in “Accumulated other comprehensive loss.” These changes in fair value will subsequently be reclassified into earnings as a component of product sales or expenses, as applicable, when the forecasted transaction occurs. To the extent that a previously designated hedging transaction is no longer an effective hedge, any ineffectiveness measured in the hedging relationship is recorded currently in earnings in the period in which it occurs.
To the extent the hedge accounting criteria are not met, the foreign currency forward contracts are utilized as economic hedges and changes in the fair value of these contracts are recorded currently in earnings in the period in which they occur. These include hedges that are used to reduce exchange rate risks arising from the change in fair value of certain foreign currency denominated assets and liabilities (e.g. payables, receivables) and other economic hedges where the hedge accounting criteria were not met.
The four quarter rolling average of the notional amount of foreign exchange contracts hedging foreign currency transactions was $12.0 billion and $11.8 billion at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively.

Table of Contents

We enter into transactions that are subject to arrangements designed to provide for netting of offsetting obligations in the event of the insolvency or default of a counterparty. However, we have not elected to offset multiple contracts with a single counterparty and, as a result, the fair value of the derivative instruments in a loss position is not offset against the fair value of derivative instruments in a gain position.
The following table summarizes the fair value of derivative instruments as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 which consist solely of foreign exchange contracts:

Assuming current market conditions continue, a $7 million pre-tax gain is expected to be reclassified from Accumulated other comprehensive loss into Product sales to reflect the fixed prices obtained from foreign exchange hedging within the next 12 months. At March 31, 2013, all derivative contracts accounted for as cash flow hedges will mature by March 2015.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2012, we recorded a non-cash net gain on nonrecurring fair value measurements of approximately $112 million within Other income, net from UTC Climate, Controls & Security's ongoing portfolio transformation efforts including integrating the legacy UTC Fire & Security businesses within the legacy Carrier businesses. This net gain includes approximately $215 million from the sale of a controlling interest in a manufacturing and distribution joint venture in Asia, partially offset by $103 million of other-than-temporary impairment charges related to planned business dispositions.
Valuation Techniques. Our available-for-sale securities include equity investments that are traded in active markets, either domestically or internationally. They are measured at fair value using closing stock prices from active markets and are classified within Level 1 of the valuation hierarchy. Our derivative assets and liabilities are managed on the basis of net exposure to market and credit risks of each of the counterparties. The fair value for these derivative assets and liabilities is measured at the price that would be received on a net asset position for a particular risk or to transfer a net liability position for a particular risk in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Our derivative assets and liabilities include foreign exchange contracts and commodity derivatives that are measured at fair value using internal models based on observable market inputs such as forward rates, interest rates, our own credit risk and our counterparties’ credit risks. Based on these inputs, the derivative assets and liabilities are classified within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy. Based on our continued ability to trade securities and enter into forward contracts, we consider the markets for our fair value instruments to be active. As of March 31, 2013, there were no significant transfers in and out of Level 1 and Level 2.
As of March 31, 2013, there has not been any significant impact to the fair value of our derivative liabilities due to our own credit risk. Similarly, there has not been any significant adverse impact to our derivative assets based on our evaluation of our counterparties’ credit risks.

Valuation Techniques. Our long-term receivables and customer financing notes receivable include our commercial and aerospace long-term trade, government and other receivables, leases, and notes receivable. Our long-term receivables and customer financing notes receivable are measured and presented in the table above at fair value using an income approach based on the present value of the contractual, promised or most likely cash flows discounted at observed or estimated market rate for comparable assets or liabilities that are traded in the market. Based on these inputs, long-term receivables and customer financing notes receivable are presented in the table above within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy. Our short-term borrowings include commercial paper and other international credit facility agreements. Our long-term debt includes domestic and international notes. Commercial paper and domestic long-term notes are measured and presented in the table above at fair values based on comparable transactions and current market interest rates quoted in active markets for similar assets, and are classified within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy. Foreign short-term borrowings and foreign long-term notes are measured and presented in the table above at fair value based on comparable transactions and rates calculated from the respective countries’ yield curves. Based on these inputs, foreign borrowings and foreign long-term notes are classified within Level 3 of the valuation hierarchy. The fair values of Accounts receivable and Accounts payable approximate the carrying amounts due to the short-term maturities of these instruments.
We had commercial aerospace financing and other contractual commitments totaling approximately $10.6 billion at March 31, 2013, which now include approximately $5.7 billion of IAE commitments, related to commercial aircraft and certain contractual rights to provide product on new aircraft platforms. We had commercial aerospace financing and other contractual commitments of approximately $10.9 billion at December 31, 2012, which included approximately $5.8 billion of IAE commitments. Risks associated with changes in interest rates on these commitments are mitigated by the fact that interest rates are variable during the commitment term, and are set at the date of funding based on current market conditions, the fair value of the underlying collateral and the credit worthiness of the customers. As a result, the fair value of these financings is expected to equal the amounts funded. The fair value of the commitment itself is not readily determinable and is not considered significant.
Note 10: Credit Quality of Long-Term Receivables
A long-term or financing receivable represents a contractual right to receive money on demand or on fixed and determinable dates, including trade receivable balances with maturity dates greater than one year. Our long-term and financing receivables primarily represent balances related to the aerospace businesses such as long-term trade accounts receivable, leases, and notes receivable. We also have other long-term receivables in our commercial businesses; however, both the individual and aggregate amounts are not significant.
Long-term trade accounts receivable represent amounts arising from the sale of goods and services with a contractual maturity date of greater than one year and are recognized as “Other assets” in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. Notes and leases receivable represent notes and lease receivables other than receivables related to operating leases, and are recognized as “Customer financing assets” in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. The following table summarizes the balance by class of aerospace long-term receivables as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012:

Economic conditions and air travel influence the operating environment for most airlines, and the financial performance of our aerospace businesses is directly tied to the economic conditions of the commercial aerospace and defense industries. Additionally, the value of the collateral is also closely tied to commercial airline performance and may be subject to exposure of reduced valuation as a result of market declines. We determine a receivable is impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable that we will be unable to collect amounts due according to the contractual terms of the receivable

agreement. Factors considered in assessing collectability and risk include, but are not limited to, examination of credit quality indicators and other evaluation measures, underlying value of any collateral or security interests, significant past due balances, historical losses, and existing economic conditions.
Long-term receivables can be considered delinquent if payment has not been received in accordance with the underlying agreement. If determined delinquent, long-term trade accounts receivable and notes and leases receivable balances accruing interest may be placed on non-accrual status. We record potential losses related to long-term receivables when identified. The reserve for credit losses on these receivables relates to specifically identified receivables that are evaluated individually for impairment. For notes and leases receivable, we determine a specific reserve for exposure based on the difference between the carrying value of the receivable and the estimated fair value of the related collateral in connection with the evaluation of credit risk and collectability. For long-term trade accounts receivable, we evaluate credit risk and collectability individually to determine if an allowance is necessary. Uncollectible long-term receivables are written-off when collection of the indebtedness has been pursued for a reasonable period of time without collection; the customer is no longer in operation; or judgment has been levied, but the underlying assets are not adequate to satisfy the indebtedness. At both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, we did not have any significant balances that are considered to be delinquent, on non-accrual status, past due 90 days or more, or considered to be impaired.
The following table provides the balance of aerospace industry long-term receivables and summarizes the associated changes in the reserve for estimated credit losses and exposure for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively:

We determine credit ratings for each customer in the portfolio based upon public information and information obtained directly from our customers. We conduct a review of customer credit ratings, published historical credit default rates for different rating categories, and multiple third party aircraft value publications as a basis to validate the reasonableness of the allowance for losses on these balances quarterly or when events and circumstances warrant. The credit ratings listed below range from “A” which indicates an extremely strong capacity to meet financial obligations and the receivable is either collateralized or uncollateralized, to “D” which indicates that payment is in default and the receivable is uncollateralized. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ from estimates or that consideration of these factors in the future will not result in an increase or decrease to the allowance for credit losses on long-term receivables.
