1. Basis of Presentation and Accounting Policies
In the opinion of management of Rockwell Automation, Inc. ("Rockwell Automation" or "the Company"), the unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements contain all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the periods presented and, except as otherwise indicated, such adjustments consist only of those of a normal, recurring nature. These statements should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2022. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2023, are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. All date references to years and quarters herein refer to our fiscal year and fiscal quarter, unless otherwise stated.
Receivables
We record an allowance for doubtful accounts based on customer-specific analysis and general matters such as current assessments of past due balances and economic conditions. Receivables are recorded net of an allowance for doubtful accounts of $17.4 million at June 30, 2023, and $13.1 million at September 30, 2022. In addition, receivables are recorded net of an allowance for certain customer returns, rebates, and incentives of $14.6 million at June 30, 2023, and $13.9 million at September 30, 2022. The changes to our allowance for doubtful accounts during the three and nine months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, were not material and primarily consisted of current-period provisions, write-offs charged against the allowance, recoveries collected, and foreign currency translation.
Earnings Per Share

For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2023, there were 0.4 million and 0.5 million shares, respectively, related to share-based compensation awards that were excluded from the diluted EPS calculation because they were antidilutive. For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2022, there were 0.6 million and 0.4 million shares, respectively, related to share-based compensation awards that were excluded from the diluted EPS calculation because they were antidilutive.
Non-Cash Investing and Financing Activities
Capital expenditures of $42.5 million and $15.5 million were accrued within Accounts payable and Other current liabilities at June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. At June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, there were $0.8 million and $8.8 million of outstanding common stock share repurchases recorded in Accounts payable that did not settle until the next quarter.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In October 2021, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued a new standard that requires companies to apply Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 606 to recognize and measure contract assets and contract liabilities in a business combination. We retroactively adopted the new standard as of October 1, 2021. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In September 2022, the FASB issued a new standard, which requires the buyer in a supplier finance program to disclose information about the key terms of the program, outstanding confirmed amounts as of the end of the period, a rollforward of such amounts during each annual period, and a description of where in the financial statements outstanding amounts are presented. We will expand our disclosures when we adopt this standard in the first quarter of 2024.
We do not expect any other recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a material impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.
2. Revenue Recognition
Nature of Products and Services
Substantially all of our revenue is from contracts with customers. We recognize revenue as promised products are transferred to, or services are performed for, customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which we expect to be entitled in exchange for those products and services. Our offerings consist of industrial automation and information products, solutions, and services.
Our products include hardware, software, and configured-to-order products. Our solutions include custom-engineered systems and software. Our services include customer technical support and repair, asset management and optimization consulting, and training. Also included in our services is a portion of revenue related to spare parts that are managed within our services offering.
Our operations are comprised of the Intelligent Devices segment, the Software & Control segment, and the Lifecycle Services segment. Revenue from the Intelligent Devices and Software & Control segments is predominantly comprised of product sales, which are recognized at a point in time. The Software & Control segment also contains revenue from software products, which may be recognized over time if certain criteria are met. Revenue from the Lifecycle Services segment is predominantly comprised of solutions and services, which are primarily recognized over time. See Note 15 for more information.
Unfulfilled Performance Obligations
As of June 30, 2023, we expect to recognize approximately $1,126 million of revenue in future periods from unfulfilled performance obligations from existing contracts with customers. We expect to recognize revenue of approximately $716 million from our remaining performance obligations over the next 12 months with the remaining balance recognized thereafter.
We have applied the practical expedient to exclude the value of remaining performance obligations for (i) contracts with an original term of one year or less and (ii) contracts for which we recognize revenue in proportion to the amount we have the right to invoice for services performed. The amounts above also do not include the impact of contract renewal options that are unexercised as of June 30, 2023.

Balance as of end of period672.5 549.5 
The most significant changes in our Contract liabilities balance during both the nine months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, were due to amounts billed, partially offset by revenue recognized on amounts billed during the period and revenue recognized that was included in the Contract liabilities balance at the beginning of the period.
In the nine months ended June 30, 2023, we recognized revenue of approximately $362.7 million that was included in the Contract liabilities balance at September 30, 2022. In the nine months ended June 30, 2022, we recognized revenue of approximately $296.8 million that was included in the Contract liabilities balance at September 30, 2021. We did not have a material amount of revenue recognized in the nine months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, from performance obligations satisfied or partially satisfied in previous periods.

In December 2022, Sensia entered into an unsecured $75.0 million line of credit. As of June 30, 2023, included in Short-term debt was $65.0 million borrowed against the line of credit with an interest rate of 6.14 percent. Also included in Short-term debt as of June 30, 2023, and September 30, 2022, is $23.5 million and $42.3 million, respectively, of interest-bearing loans from Schlumberger (SLB) to Sensia due December 29, 2023.
The following table presents the carrying amounts and estimated fair values of Long-term debt in the Consolidated Balance Sheet (in millions):

We base the fair value of Long-term debt upon quoted market prices for the same or similar issues and therefore consider this a level 2 fair value measurement. The fair value of Long-term debt considers the terms of the debt excluding the impact of derivative and hedging activity. Refer to Note 9 for further information regarding levels in the fair value hierarchy. The carrying value of our Short-term debt approximates fair value.

Equity Securities
Equity securities (level 1) consist of 6,070,905 and 8,879,717 shares of PTC Inc. ("PTC") common stock (the "PTC Shares") at June 30, 2023, and September 30, 2022, respectively. The PTC Shares are classified as level 1 in the fair value hierarchy, as described below, and are recognized at fair value in the Consolidated Balance Sheet using the most recent closing price of PTC common stock quoted on Nasdaq.
Equity securities (other) consist of various securities that do not have a readily determinable fair value, which we account for using the measurement alternative under U.S. GAAP. These securities are recorded at the investment cost, less impairment, plus or minus observable price changes (in orderly transactions) of an identical or similar investment of the same issuer in the Consolidated Balance Sheet. Observable price changes are classified as level 2 in the fair value hierarchy, as described below. The carrying values at June 30, 2023, and September 30, 2022, include cumulative upward adjustments from observed price changes of $17.2 million.
We record gains and losses on investments within the Change in fair value of investments line in the Consolidated Statement of Operations. The gains and losses on investments we recorded for the following periods were (in millions):

U.S. GAAP defines fair value as the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability. U.S. GAAP also classifies the inputs used to measure fair value into the following hierarchy:
Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs for the asset or liability.
The methods described above may produce a fair value calculation that may not be indicative of net realizable value or reflective of future fair values. Furthermore, while we believe our valuation methods are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different fair value measurement at the reporting date. We did not have any transfers between levels of fair value measurements during the period presented.

The service cost component is included in Cost of sales and Selling, general and administrative expenses in the Consolidated Statement of Operations. All other components are included in Other income (expense) in the Consolidated Statement of Operations.
In March and June 2023, we remeasured our U.S. pension plan assets and liabilities in accordance with U.S. GAAP settlement accounting rules. For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2023, we recognized settlement expense of $2.2 million and $120.1 million, respectively. Settlement accounting was required due to the amount of lump-sum payments made by the U.S. pension plan to retirees, current employees electing an in-service distribution, and other separated employees. Remeasurement of our U.S. pension plan assets and liabilities increased our net benefit obligation by $25.3 million in 2023. The discount rate used for the remeasurement as of June 30, 2023, was 5.45 percent compared to 5.65 percent at our September 30, 2022, annual measurement date.
