CORK, Ireland, November 3, 2020 -- Johnson Controls International plc (NYSE: JCI) today reported fiscal fourth quarter 2020 GAAP earnings per share ("EPS") from continuing operations, including special items, of $0.60. Excluding these items, adjusted EPS from continuing operations was $0.76, down 3% versus the prior year period (see attached footnotes for non-GAAP reconciliation).

Sales of nearly $6.0 billion decreased 5% compared to the prior year and declined 6% organically, reflecting the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

GAAP net income from continuing operations was $441 million, earnings before interest and taxes ("EBIT") was $583 million and EBIT margin was 9.8%. Adjusted net income from continuing operations was $563 million, adjusted EBIT was $770 million and adjusted EBIT margin was 12.9%, in line with prior year results despite the revenue decline.

"Looking back on what was an extraordinary year, I am incredibly proud of how our teams responded in a time of a global pandemic and the progress that we made as an organization. We remained focused on executing on our priorities to support our customers with the most innovative products and solutions, including our OpenBlue digital platform, contributing to a more sustainable world while maintaining the health and safety of our employees and their families, our customers and partners," said George Oliver, chairman and CEO. "In the fourth quarter, we performed very well across all of our end markets delivering revenue and EBIT above our prior guidance, with best in class decrementals. This is a result of continued strong execution on our cost-out initiatives, while maintaining strong reinvestment into our growth platforms."

Oliver continued, "from a strategic perspective, we executed on the initiatives we set out to accomplish at the beginning of the year, all of which enhance the long-term competitiveness of our business. I remain confident that Johnson Controls is well positioned to capitalize on the strong secular trends in buildings and infrastructure, providing innovative solutions enhancing air purification and health & safety, while delivering on our customers sustainability goals with industry leading energy management."

Sales in the quarter of $2.2 billion, decreased 7% versus the prior year. Organic sales were down 6% versus the prior year, driven by a decline in project installations and, to a much lesser extent, service. Growth in Performance Solutions was more than offset by a decline in Fire & Security and HVAC & Controls.

Orders in the quarter, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency, decreased 9% year-over-year driven by lower demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Backlog at the end of the quarter of $5.9 billion was consistent with the prior year, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency.

Adjusted segment EBITA was $345 million, down 3% versus the prior year. Adjusted segment EBITA margin of 15.4% expanded 50 basis points versus the prior year driven by significant cost mitigation actions and restructuring benefits, which more than offset the volume decline and negative mix.

Orders in the quarter, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency, decreased 7% year-over-year driven by lower demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Backlog at the end of the quarter of $1.6 billion increased 1% year-over-year, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency.

Adjusted segment EBITA was $103 million, down 7% versus the prior year. Adjusted segment EBITA margin of 11.4% declined 30 basis points over the prior year, including a 20 basis point headwind related to foreign currency. Adjusting for foreign currency, the underlying margin declined 10 basis points as the impact of the volume decline more than offset positive mix and mitigating cost actions.

Sales in the quarter of $661 million decreased 9% versus the prior year. Organic sales declined 10% versus the prior year primarily driven by a decline in project installations and, to a much lesser extent, service. Although China continues to rebound, declines continue in certain other parts of the region.

Orders in the quarter, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency, increased 2% year-over-year driven by significantly improved demand in China. Backlog at the end of the quarter of $1.7 billion increased 10% year-over-year, excluding M&A and adjusted for foreign currency.

Adjusted segment EBITA was $97 million, down 6% versus the prior year. Adjusted segment EBITA margin of 14.7% expanded 50 basis points over the prior, including a 20 basis point benefit from foreign currency. Adjusting for foreign currency, the underlying margin improved 30 basis points as favorable mix and the benefit of mitigating cost actions more than offset the volume decline.
