Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

1.
In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of operating results for the interim periods presented. Adjustments consist of normal and recurring accruals. The consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with the requirements of Form 10-Q and consequently do not include all disclosures required for annual financial statements presented in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2012.

Effective October 1, 2012, the Company adopted updates to ASC 220, Comprehensive Income, and now presents comprehensive income as a separate financial statement immediately following the statement of earnings. This update does not change the items reported in other comprehensive income or when those items should be reclassified into earnings. Effective first quarter 2014, additional disclosures will be required for the Statement of Comprehensive Income, including presenting reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income by income statement line items.

The change in goodwill since September 30, 2012 is essentially due to an impairment charge of $503 million in the third quarter related to the embedded computing and power business in the Network Power segment. See Note 10 for additional information. The company performs its annual goodwill impairment review in the fourth quarter. As discussed in the 2012 annual report, the estimated fair values of certain businesses in the Network Power segment exceeded their carrying values by approximately 10 percent, and will be included in this year's review.

Following is a discussion regarding the Company’s use of financial instruments:
Hedging Activities – As of June 30, 2013, the notional amount of foreign currency hedge positions was approximately $1.5 billion while commodity hedge contracts totaled approximately 68 million pounds ($198 million) of copper and aluminum. All derivatives receiving deferral accounting are cash flow hedges. The majority of hedging gains and losses deferred as of June 30, 2013 are expected to be recognized over the next 12 months as the underlying forecasted transactions occur. Gains and losses on foreign currency derivatives reported in other deductions, net reflect hedges of balance sheet exposures that do not receive deferral accounting. The following amounts are included in earnings and other comprehensive income (OCI) for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 (in millions):

Regardless of whether derivatives receive deferral accounting, the Company expects hedging gains or losses to be essentially offset by losses or gains on the related underlying exposures. The amounts ultimately recognized will differ from those presented above for open positions, which remain subject to ongoing market price fluctuations until settlement. Derivatives receiving deferral accounting are highly effective and no amounts were excluded from the assessment of hedge effectiveness. Hedge ineffectiveness was immaterial for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012.
Fair Value Measurements – Valuations for all derivatives and the Company's long-term debt fall within Level 2 of the GAAP valuation hierarchy. At June 30, 2013, the fair value of commodity contracts and foreign currency contracts were reported in other current assets and accrued expenses. There was no collateral posted with counterparties as of June 30, 2013. The maximum collateral that could have been required was $29 million. As of June 30, 2013, the fair value of long-term debt was $4,769 million which exceeded the carrying value by $443 million.

The significant decrease in Gains, net for both periods is due to the receipt of dumping duties collected by U.S. Customs and distributed in the prior year totaling $37 million in the third quarter, and $43 million year-to-date. The year-to-date change in Other reflects lower foreign currency transaction losses in the current year.

Rationalization of operations expense reflects costs associated with the Company’s efforts to continually improve operational efficiency and deploy assets globally in order to remain competitive on a worldwide basis.

The Company expects to incur full year 2013 rationalization expense of approximately $80 million to $85 million. This includes the $65 million incurred to date, as well as costs to complete actions initiated before the end of the third quarter and actions anticipated to be approved and initiated during the remainder of the year. Severance and benefits costs are associated with forcecount reduction, mainly for Industrial Automation and Network Power in most geographic areas. Start-up and moving costs to redeploy assets to best cost locations and expand geographically to directly serve local markets were incurred in all segments.

Industrial Automation intersegment sales for the third quarters ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 were $190 million and $206 million, respectively, and year-to-date, $488 million and $479 million. The increase in corporate and other for both the third quarter and year-to-date reflects a noncash pretax goodwill impairment charge of $503 million ($475 million after-tax, or $0.65 per share), and higher incentive stock compensation expense, primarily due to the overlap of two performance shares plans.

10.
In the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company recognized an impairment charge of $450 million in the embedded computing and power business, which reported full year 2012 sales of $1.4 billion, due to protracted weak demand, structural industry developments and increased competition. These challenges, including weakness in telecommunication and mobile device markets, continued into 2013 and results have been below expectations. Management considered strategic alternatives for this business, initiated a sales process and received nonbinding indications of interest in the third quarter. On July 31, 2013 the Company entered into an agreement to sell a 51 percent controlling interest in this business. Emerson will receive approximately $300 million in cash from the acquiror and through borrowing by the new entity, and will retain a noncontrolling interest. The transaction is expected to close in three to six months, subject to regulatory approvals. Sales and earnings of the embedded computing and power business will continue to be reported in Emerson's consolidated results until the transaction closes. On completion, the Company will account for its remaining noncontrolling interest on the equity basis. Proceeds from the transaction and repatriation of cash from this business will be used to repurchase an additional $600 million of Emerson shares, which is incremental to the current annual run rate of $800 million to $900 million.

In the third quarter, the Company recorded a noncash goodwill impairment charge in the embedded computing and power business of $503 million ($475 million after-tax, $0.65 per share), and a net income tax charge of $33 million ($0.05 per share) primarily related to the anticipated repatriation of non-U.S. earnings from this business, partially offset by other tax versus book differences. As of June 30, fair value was determined based on anticipated cash proceeds and the estimated value of the retained interest using a level three market approach (option pricing model), and will be finalized when the transaction closes. Embedded computing and power had working capital of $162 million, property, plant and equipment of $88 million and goodwill and other assets, net of $82 million.

Items 2 and 3.

Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations 

OVERVIEW
Third quarter sales were $6.3 billion, down 2 percent, reflecting an overall sluggish business environment as global macroeconomic trends remain challenging. Low levels of investment continue to reflect a cautious business climate, particularly in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Modest growth in emerging markets was more than offset by weaker demand in mature economies. Latin America and Middle East/Africa reported strong growth. Sales growth was approximately flat excluding the impact of recovery from the Thailand flood supply chain disruption in the prior year. Net earnings common stockholders of $194 million and net earnings per share of $0.27 reflect impairment and income tax charges related to the embedded computing and power business totaling $508 million, or $0.70 per share, and compare to $770 million and $1.04 in the prior year. Excluding the charges, third quarter 2013 net earnings and net earnings per share were $702 million and $0.97.

Process Management sales increased on continuing demand in global energy and chemical end markets. Growth was adversely affected by strong prior year comparisons due to the recovery of shipments from the supply chain disruption. Strong demand in U.S. residential end markets supported underlying sales growth in Commercial & Residential Solutions. Sales for Climate Technologies decreased modestly due to softness in most businesses. Industrial Automation sales and earnings decreased on weakness in industrial goods end markets, particularly in Europe. Network Power sales decreased due to a sharp decline in embedded computing and power and softness in the network power systems business.

Net sales for the third quarter of 2013 were $6,344 million, a decrease of $140 million or 2 percent, compared with $6,484 million in 2012. Underlying sales decreased 1 percent ($97 million) from volume declines and exclude the negative impact from divestitures of 1 percent or $27 million, and foreign currency translation, which had a negligible unfavorable impact ($16 million). Sales decreased 3 percent in the U.S. and were flat internationally. Sales decreases of 6 percent in Europe and 3 percent in Asia offset increases of 18 percent in Middle East/Africa, 8 percent in Latin America and 4 percent in Canada. Sales decreased in Industrial Automation, Network Power and Climate Technologies, which were down $101 million, $82 million and $27 million, respectively. Sales for Commercial & Residential Solutions decreased $9 million due to the prior year Knaack divestiture, while sales increased $60 million for Process Management.

Cost of sales in 2013 were $3,776 million, a reduction of $80 million versus $3,856 million in 2012 due to lower volume. Gross margin of 40.5 percent in 2013 was flat versus 2012 primarily due to savings from cost reduction actions and net favorable materials cost, offset by unfavorable product mix, deleverage in Industrial Automation and Network Power, and increased pension expense.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses of $1,396 million increased $58 million compared with prior year. SG&A as a percent of sales was 22.0 percent in 2013, a 1.4 percentage point increase versus 2012. The
higher SG&A expense primarily reflects an increase in incentive stock compensation of $30 million from the overlap of two performance shares plans, and higher other costs. SG&A as a percent of sales increased due to these factors, as well as deleverage on volume declines in Network Power and Industrial Automation.

On July 31, 2013, the Company entered into an agreement to sell a controlling interest in its embedded computing and power business and recorded a noncash pretax impairment charge of $503 million in the third quarter. See Note 10 for additional information.

Other deductions, net were $107 million in 2013, an increase of $23 million primarily due to a gain of $37 million in 2012 from the receipt of dumping duties collected by U.S. Customs and higher foreign currency transaction losses in the current year, slightly offset by lower rationalization expense. See Notes 7 and 8 for details regarding other deductions, net, and rationalization.

Pretax earnings of $511 million decreased $644 million, or 56 percent. The decrease was primarily due to the pretax goodwill impairment charge of $503 million, which reduced pretax earnings 44 percent, plus decreases of $53 million in Industrial Automation, $41 million in Network Power and $20 million in Process Management.

Income taxes were $297 million for 2013 and $368 million for 2012, resulting in effective tax rates of 58 percent and 32 percent, respectively. The higher effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2013 is the result of an unfavorable 23 percentage point impact from the goodwill impairment charge (as only a small portion of the goodwill is tax deductible) and a net tax charge of $33 million (6 percentage point impact) related to the anticipated repatriation of non-U.S. earnings from this business and the impact of other tax versus book basis differences. The closure of tax examinations had a favorable impact on the rate.
Net earnings common stockholders in 2013 were $194 million, down 75 percent, while net earnings per share were $0.27, down 74 percent. Excluding charges, net earnings were $702 million, down 9 percent, and earnings per share were $0.97, down 7 percent. Charges totaling $508 million after-tax, $0.70 per share, reduced net earnings and earnings per share by 66 percent and 67 percent, respectively.

Process Management sales increased $60 million, led by moderate growth in the final control and systems and solutions businesses. Sales in the measurement and control businesses were flat. Comparisons were adversely affected by approximately 7 percent due to higher sales in the prior year resulting from the recovery of shipments delayed by Thailand flooding. Demand continued in global oil and gas and chemical end markets. Underlying sales grew 3 percent, and foreign currency translation had a negligible ($7 million) unfavorable impact. Growth was strong internationally, with Asia up 8 percent, Middle East/Africa up 24 percent, Latin America up 17 percent and Canada up 7 percent. Sales were down 6 percent in the U.S. and flat in Europe. Earnings decreased $20 million and margin contracted 160 basis points due to exceptional operating leverage in the prior year from recovery of delayed shipments, partially offset by savings from cost reduction actions. Difficult sales and earnings comparisons due to prior year flooding recovery will continue in the fourth quarter.

Industrial Automation sales decreased $101 million on declines in most businesses, reflecting weakness in industrial goods end markets, particularly in Europe. The decrease was most pronounced in power generating alternators and industrial motors, hermetic motors, and materials joining equipment. Strength in fluid automation slightly offset the decline. Channel inventory destocking in power generating alternators appears to be slowing. Reported and underlying sales were both down 7 percent on lower volume. Underlying sales decreased 13 percent in Europe, 6 percent in the U.S., 4 percent in Latin America and 2 percent in Middle East/Africa. Sales in Asia were flat, however China was up 2 percent. Sales in Canada were up 14 percent. Earnings decreased $53 million and margin declined 270 basis points reflecting lower volume and related deleverage, and unfavorable comparisons due to a $37 million gain in 2012 from dumping duties (see Note 7). The decrease was partially offset by savings from cost reduction actions and net materials cost containment. Margin was effectively flat excluding the dumping duties gain.

Sales for Network Power decreased $82 million, reflecting persistent softness in global telecommunications and information technology end markets. The sales decrease included 3 percent lower volume and an estimated 2 percent from lower pricing. The decrease was primarily due to a sharp decline in embedded computing and power, resulting from product line rationalization and lower end market demand. The network power systems business was down slightly, with decreases in the telecommunications-related power and infrastructure management businesses, partially offset by modest growth in uninterruptible power supplies and slight growth in inbound power. The precision cooling business was flat. Underlying sales were down 5 percent overall, and down 13 percent in Asia,1 percent in the U.S., 4 percent in Europe and 5 percent in Canada, partially offset by 19 percent growth in Middle East/Africa and 6 percent growth in Latin America. Earnings decreased $41 million and margin contracted 220 basis points on the lower sales, deleverage and higher other costs primarily in the network power systems business, partially offset by savings from cost reduction actions and materials cost containment.

Sales for Commercial & Residential Solutions decreased 2 percent ($9 million), reflecting a negative 6 percent ($27 million) impact from the prior year Knaack divestiture and underlying sales growth of 4 percent ($18 million) on volume increases. Sales growth was led by strength in food waste disposers and moderate growth in the tools businesses. The storage businesses were flat. Underlying sales increased 6 percent in the U.S. and decreased 1 percent internationally. Earnings declined $2 million as benefits from higher volume and cost containment actions were more than offset by the comparative effect of $4 million of Knaack earnings in the prior year. Margin was flat.

Net sales for the first nine months of 2013 were $17,857 million, an increase of $145 million or 1 percent, compared with 2012. Underlying sales increased 2 percent ($289 million). Foreign currency translation subtracted 0.5 percent ($68 million) and divestitures had a negative 0.5 percent ($76 million) impact. Sales increased 1 percent in the U.S. and 2 percent internationally. Asia was up 1 percent, with China flat. Middle East/Africa was up 19 percent, Latin America was up 11 percent and Canada was up 3 percent. Europe was down 4 percent. Segment results were mixed as sales grew $580 million in Process Management and $54 million in Climate Technologies, and decreased $264 million in Industrial Automation, $186 million in Network Power, and $31 million in Commercial & Residential Solutions due to the Knaack divestiture.

Cost of sales for 2013 were $10,709 million, resulting in gross profit of $7,148 million and gross margin of 40.0 percent. Cost of sales for 2012 were $10,693 million, resulting in gross profit of $7,019 million and gross margin of 39.6 percent. The increases in gross profit and margin primarily reflect higher volume, savings from cost reduction actions and materials cost containment. Deleverage in Industrial Automation and Network Power, product mix and pension and other expenses were unfavorable.

SG&A expenses of $4,216 million increased $165 million compared with prior year. SG&A as a percent of sales was 23.6 percent in 2013, a 0.8 percentage point increase versus 22.8 percent in 2012. The increase in SG&A primarily reflects costs associated with higher volume and $68 million of higher incentive stock compensation from the overlap of two performance shares plans, partially offset by benefits of cost reductions and a $17 million charge in 2012 related to post-65 supplemental retiree medical benefits. SG&A as a percent of sales increased due to these factors plus unfavorable business mix.

See the Results of Operations for the third quarter and Note 10 for information on the embedded computing and power related charges.

Other deductions, net were $252 million in 2013, a decrease of $27 million versus prior year primarily due to a $24 million reduction in rationalization expense, lower foreign currency transaction losses, and lower amortization of intangibles, partially offset by a gain of $43 million in 2012 from the receipt of dumping duties. See Notes 7 and 8 for details regarding other deductions, net and rationalization costs.

Pretax earnings of $2,015 million decreased $507 million, or 20 percent. Earnings primarily reflect the pretax goodwill impairment charge of $503 million, which reduced earnings 20 percent, and decreases of $88 million in Industrial Automation and $81 million in Network Power, partially offset by increases of $185 million in Process Management and $21 million in Climate Technologies.
Income taxes were $757 million for 2013 and $798 million for 2012, resulting in effective tax rates of 38 percent and 32 percent, respectively. The goodwill impairment and net tax charges related to embedded computing and power had an 8 percentage point unfavorable impact.
Net earnings common stockholders in 2013 were $1,209 million, down 28 percent, while net earnings per share were $1.66, down 27 percent. Excluding charges, net earnings were $1,717 million, up 2 percent, and earnings per share were $2.36, up 4 percent.

Global air conditioning sales growth was strong, particularly in the U.S. and Asia due to strong demand in the first half of the year. Europe air conditioning was up moderately. Refrigeration sales declined moderately. Underlying sales grew 2 percent on volume increases, including 1 percent in the U.S., 3 percent in Asia, 2 percent in Europe and 25 percent in Middle East/Africa. Sales decreased 2 percent in Latin America. Earnings increased $21 million on higher volume in the compressors business. Margin increased 40 basis points on savings from cost reduction actions and materials cost containment, partially offset by unfavorable product mix.

Sales for Commercial & Residential Solutions decreased 2 percent ($31 million), reflecting a negative 6 percent ($76 million) impact from the prior year Knaack divestiture. Underlying sales grew 4 percent ($45 million) on volume increases. The increase was led by solid growth in food waste disposers and modest growth in the storage businesses. The tools businesses grew slightly. Underlying sales increased 6 percent in the U.S. and decreased 4 percent internationally. Earnings decreased $4 million, while margin increased 20 basis points. Earnings from higher volume and savings from cost reduction actions were offset by $9 million of prior year Knaack earnings and other costs.

Interest coverage ratio

12.6X

The Company's interest coverage ratio (earnings before income taxes plus interest expense, divided by interest expense) of 12.6X for the first nine months of 2013 compares to 15.0X in the same period last year. The decrease reflects lower earnings due to the noncash charges in the embedded computing and power business which negatively impacted the ratio by 2.9X. See Note 10.
Cash provided by operating activities of $2,146 million increased $404 million, or 23 percent, compared with $1,742 million in the prior year period, primarily due to lower working capital growth. Operating cash flow funded capital expenditures of $380 million, dividends of $888 million and treasury stock purchases of $573 million. Long-term debt payments were $521 million. For the first nine months of 2013, free cash flow of $1,766 million (operating cash flow of $2,146 million less capital expenditures of $380 million) was up $452 million from free cash flow of $1,314 million (operating cash flow of $1,742 million less capital expenditures of $428 million) in 2012. Overall, cash and equivalents increased $443 million during the first nine months of 2013.
During the second quarter of 2013, the Company issued $500 million of 2.625% notes due February 2023 under an automatic shelf registration statement on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The net proceeds from the sale of the notes were used for general corporate purposes and to repay commercial paper borrowings.
Emerson maintains a conservative financial structure which provides the strength and flexibility necessary to achieve its strategic objectives. The Company has been able to readily meet all its funding requirements and currently believes that sufficient funds will be available to meet the Company’s needs in the foreseeable future through ongoing operations, existing resources, short- and long-term debt capacity or backup credit lines. These resources allow Emerson to reinvest in existing businesses, pursue strategic acquisitions and manage its capital structure on a short- and long-term basis.

FISCAL 2013 OUTLOOK
Global business investment remains cautious but appears to be improving based on orders activity. Forecasts are for mixed results overall, with solid demand in energy end markets and a resumption of growth in residential air conditioning and refrigeration. End markets for industrial goods appear to be stabilizing but are expected to remain slow in the near term, particularly in Europe. End markets for information technology and telecommunications are expected to improve in the near term, although a large Australian project in the prior year will unfavorably affect fourth quarter comparisons. Modest growth is expected to continue in residential end markets while nonresidential demand improves. Based on the current business environment, reported and underlying sales growth in 2013 are now expected to be approximately 1 percent, with EBIT and pretax margin approximately equal to the prior year (excluding the goodwill impairment impact of 240 basis points in 2012 and 205 basis points in 2013). Earnings per share are expected to trend toward the lower end of the range of $3.48 to $3.55 (excluding charges totaling $0.70 in 2013), or $2.78 to $2.85 including charges. The Company is targeting operating cash flow of approximately $3.4 billion and capital expenditures of approximately $0.7 billion. 
Statements in this report that are not strictly historical may be "forward-looking" statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, and Emerson undertakes no obligation to update any such statements to reflect later developments. These risks and uncertainties include the Company's ability to complete the embedded computing and power transaction, as well as economic and currency conditions, market demand, pricing, protection of intellectual property, and competitive and technological factors, among others which are set forth in the “Risk Factors” of Part I, Item 1, and the "Safe Harbor Statement" of Exhibit 13, to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2012, which are hereby incorporated by reference.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures 

The Company maintains a system of disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in its reports under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported in a timely manner.

Based on an evaluation performed, the certifying officers have concluded that the disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, there can be no assurance that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures will detect or uncover all failures of persons within the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries to report material information otherwise required to be set forth in the Company's reports.
There was no change in the Company's internal control over financial reporting during the period covered by this report that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.
