AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements at September 30, 2016 and for the quarters and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 are unaudited, but in the opinion of management include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair statement 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 (2015 Annual Report) incorporated by reference to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for calendar year 2015 (2015 Form 10-K).
In March 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which amends the accounting for employee share-based payment transactions to require recognition of the tax effects resulting from the settlement of stock-based awards as income tax expense or benefit in the income statement in the reporting period in which they occur. The ASU also requires that all tax-related cash flows resulting from share-based payments, including the excess tax benefits related to the settlement of stock-based awards, be classified as cash flows from operating activities, and that cash paid by directly withholding shares for tax withholding purposes be classified as a financing activity in the statement of cash flows. In addition, the ASU also allows companies to make an accounting policy election to either estimate the number of awards that are expected to vest, consistent with current U.S. GAAP, or account for forfeitures when they occur. The new standard is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 with early adoption permitted. We have elected to early adopt the requirements of the amended standard in the third quarter of 2016 and are therefore required to report the impacts as though adopted on January 1, 2016. Accordingly, we recognized additional income tax benefits of approximately $13 million and $11 million for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively. In addition, we recognized the additional income tax benefits and cash paid by directly withholding shares for tax withholding purposes of $29 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 as an increase in net cash flows provided by operating activities of continuing operations, and an increase in net cash flows used in financing activities of continuing operations. There is no change to our accounting policy with respect to estimation of forfeitures.
Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior year amounts to conform to the current year presentation. On November 6, 2015, we completed the sale of the Sikorsky Aircraft business (Sikorsky) to Lockheed Martin Corp. Accordingly, the results of operations and the related cash flows of Sikorsky have been reclassified to Discontinued Operations in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. See Note 2 for further discussion.
Note 1: Acquisitions, Dispositions, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets
Business Acquisitions and Dispositions. During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, our investment in business acquisitions was $537 million, including debt assumed of $2 million, and consisted of the acquisition of a majority interest in an Italian heating products and services company by UTC Climate, Controls & Security and a number of small acquisitions, primarily in our commercial businesses.
Goodwill. Changes in our goodwill balances for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were as follows:

Customer relationship intangible assets include payments made to our customers to secure certain contractual rights. Such payments are capitalized when there are distinct rights obtained and there are sufficient incremental cash flows to support the recoverability of the assets established. Otherwise, the applicable portion of the payments are expensed. We amortize these intangible assets based on the underlying pattern of economic benefit, which may result in an amortization method other than straight-line. In the aerospace industry, amortization based on the pattern of economic benefit generally results in lower amortization expense during the development period with increasing amortization expense as programs enter full production and aftermarket cycles. If a pattern of economic benefit cannot be reliably determined, a straight-line amortization method is used. We classify amortization of such payments as a reduction of sales. The collaboration intangible assets are amortized based upon the pattern of economic benefits as represented by the underlying cash flows.
Amortization of intangible assets for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $197 million and $578 million, respectively, compared with $183 million and $537 million for the same periods of 2015. The following is the expected amortization of intangible assets for the years 2016 through 2021, which reflects the pattern of expected economic benefit on certain aerospace intangible assets.

Note 2: Discontinued Operations
On November 6, 2015, we completed the sale of Sikorsky to Lockheed Martin Corp. Accordingly, the results of operations and the cash flows related to Sikorsky have been reclassified to Discontinued Operations in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income for the quarters and nine months ended September 30, 2015, and in our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. In the nine months ended September 30, 2016, we recognized approximately $11 million of additional gain on the disposal, primarily resulting from the settlement of working capital adjustments. In the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016, we recognized approximately $40 million of income tax benefit and $12 million of income tax expense, respectively, including the impacts related to filing Sikorsky's 2015 tax returns. Net cash outflows from discontinued operations of approximately $2.5 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were primarily due to the payment of taxes related to the 2015 gain realized on the sale of Sikorsky.

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 because the effect would be anti-dilutive. For the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016, the number of stock awards excluded from the computation was approximately 12.2 million and 15.0 million, respectively. For the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015, the number of stock awards excluded from the computation was approximately 10.3 million and 8.8 million, respectively.

Included within inventory are capitalized contract development costs related to certain aerospace programs at UTC Aerospace Systems. As of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, these capitalized costs were $148 million and $152 million, respectively, which will be liquidated as production units are delivered to the customer. Within commercial aerospace, inventory costs attributable to new engine offerings are recognized based on the average cost per unit expected over the life of each contract using the units-of-delivery method of percentage of completion accounting. Under this method, costs of initial engine deliveries in excess of the projected contract per unit average cost are capitalized, and these capitalized amounts are subsequently expensed as additional engine deliveries occur for engines with costs below the projected contract per unit average cost over the life of the contract. As of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, inventory included $144 million and $13 million, respectively, of such capitalized amounts.

At September 30, 2016, we had revolving credit agreements with various banks permitting aggregate borrowings of up to $4.35 billion, pursuant to a $2.20 billion revolving credit agreement and a $2.15 billion multicurrency revolving credit agreement, both of which expire in August 2021. As of September 30, 2016, there were no borrowings under 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 September 30, 2016, our maximum commercial paper borrowing limit was $4.35 billion. We use our commercial paper borrowings for general corporate purposes, including the funding of potential acquisitions, debt refinancing, and repurchases of our common stock. The need for commercial paper borrowings arises when the use of domestic cash for acquisitions, dividends, and share repurchases exceeds the sum of domestic cash generation and foreign cash repatriated to the U.S.
On February 22, 2016, we issued €950 million aggregate principal amount of 1.125% notes due 2021, €500 million aggregate principal amount of 1.875% notes due 2026 and €750 million aggregate principal amount of floating rate notes due 2018. The net proceeds from these debt issuances were used for general corporate purposes.

On April 29, 2016, we renewed our 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, Singapore, South Korea, 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 2003.
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. It is reasonably possible that a net reduction within a range of $100 million to $685 million of unrecognized tax benefits may occur within the next 12 months as a result of additional worldwide uncertain tax positions, the revaluation of current uncertain tax positions arising from developments in examinations, in appeals, in the courts, or the closure of tax statutes. See Note 15, Contingent Liabilities, for discussion regarding uncertain tax positions, included in the above range, related to pending litigation with respect to certain deductions claimed in Germany.
During the quarter, the Company recognized a non-cash benefit of approximately $58 million, primarily tax, as a result of the closure of the audit by the Examination Division of the Internal Revenue Service of Goodrich Corporation tax years 2011 and 2012 through the date of acquisition by UTC. UTC tax years 2011 and 2012 are currently under review by the Examination Division of the Internal Revenue Service. Completion of that examination is possible within the next 3 to 6 months and could result in related non-cash gains, primarily tax, in the range of $150 million to $275 million.

Net settlements and curtailment losses for pension benefits include curtailment losses of approximately $110 million related to, and recorded in, discontinued operations for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015. Total net periodic benefit cost in the table above includes approximately $25 million and $74 million related to, and recorded in, discontinued operations for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively.
In 2015, we changed the approach we use to estimate the service and interest components of net periodic pension cost for our significant pension plans. Historically, we estimated the service and interest cost components utilizing a single weighted-average discount rate derived from the yield curve used to measure the benefit obligation at the beginning of the period. We elected to utilize a full yield curve approach in the estimation of these components by applying the specific spot rates along the yield curve used in determination of the benefit obligation to the relevant projected cash flows. We made this change to provide a more precise measurement of service and interest costs by improving the correlation between projected benefit cash flows to the corresponding spot yield curve rates. This change does not affect the measurement of our total benefit obligations. The discount rates used to measure service cost and interest cost during 2016 are 3.9% and 3.5%, respectively. The previous method would have used a discount rate for both service and interest costs of 4.1%. This change decreases the service and interest cost components of our annual net periodic pension cost by approximately $215 million for 2016. We have accounted for this change as a change in accounting estimate and, accordingly, have accounted for it prospectively, effective January 1, 2016.
As part of our long-term strategy to de-risk our defined benefit pension plans, we entered into an agreement to purchase a group annuity contract to transfer approximately $775 million of our outstanding pension benefit obligations related to certain U.S. retirees or beneficiaries, which was finalized on October 12, 2016. We have also offered certain former U.S. employees or beneficiaries with a vested pension benefit an option to take a one-time lump sum distribution in lieu of future monthly pension payments, which is expected to reduce our pension benefit obligations by approximately $995 million by the end of 2016. These transactions are expected to reduce the assets of our defined benefit pension plans by approximately $1.5 billion. As a result of these transactions, we expect to recognize a one-time pre-tax pension settlement charge in the range of $400 million to $530 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Note 8: Restructuring Costs
During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, we recorded net pre-tax restructuring costs totaling $201 million for new and ongoing restructuring actions. We recorded charges in the segments as follows:

During the quarter ended September 30, 2016, we had reversals of previously accrued restructuring reserves of approximately $32 million, the majority of which related to a Pratt & Whitney business that was sold in the third quarter of 2016 after originally being scheduled for closure.
2014 and Prior Actions. As of September 30, 2016, we have approximately $42 million of accrual balances remaining related to 2014 and prior 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.
The four quarter rolling average of the notional amount of foreign exchange contracts hedging foreign currency transactions was $18.0 billion and $15.6 billion at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.

As discussed in Note 5, we have issued approximately €2.95 billion of Euro-denominated debt, which qualifies as a net investment hedge against our investments in European businesses. As of September 30, 2016, the net investment hedge is deemed to be effective.

Assuming current market conditions continue, a $53 million pre-tax loss 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 September 30, 2016, all derivative contracts accounted for as cash flow hedges will mature by November 2022.

Valuation Techniques. Our available-for-sale securities include equity investments that are traded in active markets, either domestically or internationally, and are measured at fair value using closing stock prices from active markets. 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. As of September 30, 2016, there were no significant transfers in and out of Level 1 and Level 2.

Table of Contents

As of September 30, 2016, 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.

We had commercial aerospace financing and other contractual commitments totaling approximately $14.5 billion and $14.6 billion as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, related to commercial aircraft and certain contractual rights to provide product on new aircraft platforms. 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.
Note 11: Long-Term Financing Receivables
Our long-term financing receivables primarily represent balances related to our aerospace businesses, such as long-term trade accounts receivable, leases receivable, and notes receivable. We also have other long-term receivables related to our commercial businesses; however, both the individual and aggregate amounts of those other receivables are not significant.
Long-term trade accounts receivable, including unbilled receivables related to long-term aftermarket contracts, are principally amounts arising from the sale of goods and delivery of services with a contractual maturity date or realization period 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 business related long-term receivables as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

Customer credit ratings range from customers with an extremely strong capacity to meet financial obligations, to customers whose uncollateralized receivable is in default. 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. Based upon the customer credit ratings, approximately 11% and 13% of our total long-term receivables were considered to bear high credit risk as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.

Table of Contents

For long-term trade accounts receivable, we evaluate credit risk and collectability individually to determine if an allowance is necessary. Our long-term receivables reflected in the table above, which include reserves of $17 million and $18 million as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, are individually evaluated for impairment. At September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, 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 not recoverable.

On March 13, 2015, we entered into accelerated share repurchase (ASR) agreements to repurchase an aggregate of $2.65 billion of our common stock. Under the terms of the ASR agreements, we made the aggregate payments and received an initial delivery of 18.6 million shares of common stock, representing approximately 85% of the shares expected to be repurchased. On July 31, 2015, the shares associated with the remaining portion of the aggregate purchase were settled upon final delivery to us of approximately 4.2 million additional shares of common stock. Including the remaining shares settled on July 31, 2015, the final price under the ASR was $116.11 per share.
On August 3, 2015, we received approximately $1.1 billion from the proceeds of the previously disclosed remarketing of our 1.550% junior subordinated notes, which were originally issued as part of our equity units on June 18, 2012, and issued approximately 11.3 million shares of common stock to settle the purchase obligation of the holders of the equity units under the purchase contract entered into at the time of the original issuance of the equity units.
On November 11, 2015, we entered into ASR agreements to repurchase an aggregate of $6 billion of our common stock utilizing the net after-tax proceeds from the sale of Sikorsky. The ASR agreements provide for the repurchase of our common stock based on the average of the daily volume-weighted average prices of our common stock during the term of such ASR agreements, less a discount and subject to adjustments pursuant to the terms and conditions of the ASR agreements. Under the terms of the ASR agreements, we made the aggregate payments and received an initial delivery of approximately 51.9 million shares of our common stock, representing approximately 85% of the shares expected to be repurchased. The shares associated with the remaining portion of the aggregate purchase price have been settled over six tranches. On January 19, 2016, the shares associated with the remaining portion of the first tranche of the aggregate purchase were settled upon final delivery to us of approximately 2.1 million shares of common stock. On September 14 and 15, 2016, the shares associated with the remaining portion of the remaining five tranches of the aggregate purchase were settled upon final delivery to us of approximately 8 million additional shares of common stock. Including the remaining shares associated with the six tranches settled in 2016, the final price under the November 11, 2015 ASR was $96.74 per share.
A summary of the changes in each component of accumulated other comprehensive (loss) income, net of tax for the quarters and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 is provided below:
