Eaton Third Quarter Operating Earnings Up 48 Percent Over 2012

This earnings release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures. These financial measures include operating earnings, operating earnings per ordinary share, and operating profit before acquisition integration charges and transaction costs for each business segment as well as corporate expense, each of which excludes amounts that differ from the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). A reconciliation of each of these financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is included in this earnings release. Management believes that these financial measures are useful to investors because they exclude transactions of an unusual nature, allowing investors to more easily compare Eaton's financial performance period to period. Management uses this information in monitoring and evaluating the on-going performance of Eaton and each business segment.


In 2012, Eaton acquired businesses in separate transactions. The Consolidated Statements of Income include the results of these businesses from the dates of the transactions. These transactions and the related annual sales prior to acquisition are summarized below:
