Eaton Third Quarter Operating Earnings Up 48 Percent Over 2012

“We are pleased with the 17.1 percent operating margin in Electrical Products,” said Cutler. “This margin represents a significant step up from the strong margins of 16.2 percent we recorded in the second quarter.”

Sales for the Electrical Systems and Services segment were $1.6 billion, an increase of 80 percent over the third quarter of 2012, reflecting the impact of the Cooper Industries acquisition. The segment reported operating profits of $231 million. Excluding acquisition integration costs of $10 million during the quarter, operating profits were $241 million, up 115 percent over results in 2012.

“Combined bookings in the quarter increased 3 percent over the third quarter of 2012,” said Cutler. “For all of 2013, we now believe that the markets in our Electrical Systems and Services segment will grow by 1 1/2 percent, up 1/2 percent from our expectation at the end of the second quarter.”

Hydraulics segment sales were $739 million, down 3 percent from the third quarter of 2012. Operating profits in the third quarter were $89 million. Excluding acquisition integration charges of $8 million during the quarter, operating profits were $97 million, down 1 percent from the third quarter of 2012.

“Global hydraulics markets in the third quarter remained sluggish, particularly in the construction equipment industries in the U.S. and China,” said Cutler. “Our bookings in the third quarter increased 8 percent over the third quarter of 2012, the first time quarterly bookings have increased since the fourth quarter of 2011. For all of 2013, we believe global hydraulics markets will decline 6 percent, 1 percent lower than our expectation at the end of the second quarter.”

Aerospace segment sales were $448 million, up 7 percent over the third quarter of 2012. Operating profits in the third quarter were $64 million, up 31 percent over the third quarter of 2012.
