Johnson Controls, Inc.
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

1.
Financial Statements

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (which include normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) have been omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Johnson Controls, Inc. (the "Company") Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2013. The results of operations for the three and six month periods ended March 31, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of results for the Company’s 2014 fiscal year because of seasonal and other factors.

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Johnson Controls, Inc. and its domestic and non-U.S. subsidiaries that are consolidated in conformity with U.S. GAAP. All significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated. Investments in partially-owned affiliates are accounted for by the equity method when the Company’s interest exceeds 20% and the Company does not have a controlling interest.

Under certain criteria as provided for in Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 810, "Consolidation," the Company may consolidate a partially-owned affiliate. To determine whether to consolidate a partially-owned affiliate, the Company first determines if the entity is a variable interest entity (VIE). An entity is considered to be a VIE if it has one of the following characteristics: 1) the entity is thinly capitalized; 2) residual equity holders do not control the entity; 3) equity holders are shielded from economic losses or do not participate fully in the entity’s residual economics; or 4) the entity was established with non-substantive voting. If the entity meets one of these characteristics, the Company then determines if it is the primary beneficiary of the VIE. The party with the power to direct activities of the VIE that most significantly impact the VIE’s economic performance and the potential to absorb benefits or losses that could be significant to the VIE is considered the primary beneficiary and consolidates the VIE. If the entity is not considered a VIE, then the Company applies the voting interest model to determine whether or not the Company shall consolidate the partially-owned affiliate.
        
Consolidated VIEs

Based upon the criteria set forth in ASC 810, the Company has determined that it was the primary beneficiary in three VIEs for the reporting periods ended March 31, 2014September 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, as the Company absorbs significant economics of the entities and has the power to direct the activities that are considered most significant to the entities.

Two of the VIEs manufacture products in North America for the automotive industry. The Company funds the entities’ short term liquidity needs through revolving credit facilities and has the power to direct the activities that are considered most significant to the entities through its key customer supply relationships.

During the three month period ended December 31, 2011, a pre-existing VIE accounted for under the equity method was reorganized into three separate investments as a result of the counterparty exercising its option to put its interest to the Company. The Company acquired additional interests in two of the reorganized group entities. The reorganized group entities are considered to be VIEs as the other owner party has been provided decision making rights but does not have equity at risk. The Company is considered the primary beneficiary of one of the entities due to the Company’s power pertaining to decisions over significant activities of the entity. As such, this VIE has been consolidated within the Company’s consolidated statements of financial position. The impact of consolidation of the entity on the Company’s consolidated statements of income for the three and six month periods ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 was not material. The VIE is named as a co-obligor under a third party debt agreement of $175 million, maturing in fiscal 2020, under which it could become subject to paying more than its allocated share of the third party debt in the event of bankruptcy of one or more of the other co-obligors. The other co-obligors, all related parties in which the Company is an equity investor, consist of the remaining group entities involved in the reorganization. As part of the overall reorganization transaction, the Company has also provided financial support to the group entities in the form of loans totaling $55 million, which are subordinate to the third party debt agreement. The Company is a significant customer of certain co-obligors, resulting in a remote possibility of loss. Additionally, the Company is subject to a floor guaranty expiring in fiscal 2022; in the event that the other owner party no longer owns any part of the group entities

due to sale or transfer, the Company has guaranteed that the proceeds received from the sale or transfer will not be less than $25 million. The Company has partnered with the group entities to design and manufacture battery components for the Power Solutions business.

The Company did not have a significant variable interest in any other consolidated VIEs for the presented reporting periods.

Nonconsolidated VIEs

As of September 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, the Company had a 40% interest in an equity method investee whereby the investee is a VIE. The investee produces and sells lead-acid batteries of which the Company both purchases and supplies certain batteries to complement each investment partners’ portfolio. The Company had a contractual right to purchase the remaining 60% equity interest in the investee between May 2014 and May 2016 (the "call option"). If the Company did not exercise the call option prior to its expiration in May 2016, for a period of six months thereafter the Company was subject to a contractual obligation at the counterparty’s option to sell the Company’s equity investment in the investee to the counterparty (the "repurchase option"). The purchase price was fixed under both the call option and the repurchase option. Based upon the criteria set forth in ASC 810, the Company determined that the investee was a VIE as the equity holders, through their equity investments, may not participate fully in the entity’s residual economics. The Company was not the primary beneficiary as the Company did not have the power to make key operating decisions considered to be most significant to the VIE. Therefore, the investee was accounted for under the equity method of accounting as the Company’s interest exceeded 20% and the Company did not have a controlling interest. The investment balance included within investments in partially-owned affiliates in the consolidated statements of financial position at September 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013 was $56 million, which represented the Company’s maximum exposure to loss. Current assets and liabilities related to the VIE were immaterial and represented normal course of business trade receivables and payables for all presented periods. In the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company purchased an additional 50% equity interest in the investee to bring the Company's total interest in the investee to 90%. As a result of this transaction, the fixed price call option and repurchase option no longer exist, and the Company consolidates the investee under the voting interest model. Refer to Note 3, "Acquisitions and Divestitures," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for additional information regarding this transaction.

As mentioned previously within the "Consolidated VIEs" section above, during the three month period ended December 31, 2011, a pre-existing VIE was reorganized into three separate investments as a result of the counterparty exercising its option to put its interest to the Company. The reorganized group entities are considered to be VIEs as the other owner party has been provided decision making rights but does not have equity at risk. The Company is not considered to be the primary beneficiary of two of the entities as the Company cannot make key operating decisions considered to be most significant to the VIEs. Therefore, the entities are accounted for under the equity method of accounting as the Company’s interest exceeds 20% and the Company does not have a controlling interest. The Company’s maximum exposure to loss includes the partially-owned affiliate investment balance of $60 million, $57 million and $56 million at March 31, 2014September 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, respectively, as well as the subordinated loan from the Company, third party debt agreement and floor guaranty mentioned previously within the "Consolidated VIEs" section above. Current liabilities due to the VIEs are not material and represent normal course of business trade payables for all presented periods.

The Company did not have a significant variable interest in any other unconsolidated VIEs for the presented reporting periods.

Restricted Cash

At March 31, 2014, September 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, the Company held restricted cash of approximately $22 million, $32 million and $24 million, respectively, within cash and cash equivalents. These amounts were collected from customers for payment of maintenance costs under contract, and withdrawals are restricted for this purpose.

Retrospective Changes

Certain amounts as of September 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013 have been revised to conform to the current year’s presentation.

Effective October 1, 2013, the Company reorganized the reportable segments within its Building Efficiency business to align with its new management reporting structure and business activities. Prior to this reorganization, Building Efficiency was comprised of five reportable segments for financial reporting purposes: North America Systems, North America Service, Global Workplace Solutions, Asia and Other. As a result of this change, Building Efficiency is now comprised of four reportable segments for financial reporting purposes, with the only change being the combination of North America Systems and North America Service into one reportable segment called North America Systems and Service. Historical information has been revised to reflect the new Building Efficiency reportable segment structure.

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company changed its method of inventory costing for certain inventory in its Power Solutions business to the first-in first-out (FIFO) method from the last-in first-out (LIFO) method. The Company's other businesses also determine costs using the FIFO method. Prior to the change, Power Solutions utilized two methods of inventory costing: LIFO for inventories in the U.S. and FIFO for inventories in other countries. The Company believes that the FIFO method is preferable as it better reflects the current value of inventory on the Company’s consolidated statement of financial position, provides better matching of revenues and expenses, results in uniformity across the Company’s global operations with respect to the method of inventory accounting and improves comparability with the Company’s peers. The change has been reported through retrospective application of the new policy to all periods presented.

At March 31, 2014, the Company determined that its Automotive Experience Electronics segment met the criteria to be classified as a discontinued operation, which required retrospective application to financial information for all periods presented. Refer to Note 4, "Discontinued Operations," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for further information regarding the Company's discontinued operations.

New Accounting Standards

In April 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-08, "Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant and Equipment (Topic 360): Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity." ASU No. 2014-08 limits discontinued operations reporting to situations where the disposal represents a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity's operations and financial results, and requires expanded disclosures for discontinued operations. ASU No. 2014-08 will be effective prospectively for the Company for disposals that occur in the quarter ending December 31, 2015, with early adoption permitted in certain instances. The significance of this guidance for the Company is dependent on any future dispositions or disposals.

In July 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-11, "Income Taxes (Topic 740): Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists." ASU No. 2013-11 clarifies that companies should present an unrecognized tax benefit as a reduction to a deferred tax asset for a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss or a tax credit carryforward. ASU No. 2013-11 will be effective prospectively for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2014, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact adoption of this guidance may have on its consolidated statement of financial position. The adoption of this guidance will have no impact on the Company's consolidated results of operations.

In March 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-05, "Foreign Currency Matters (Topic 830): Parent's Accounting for the Cumulative Translation Adjustment upon Derecognition of Certain Subsidiaries or Groups of Assets within a Foreign Entity or of an Investment in a Foreign Entity." ASU No. 2013-05 clarifies when companies should release the cumulative translation adjustment (CTA) into net income when a parent either sells a part or all of its investment in a foreign entity or no longer holds a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary or group of assets within a foreign entity. Additionally, ASU No. 2013-05 states that CTA should be released into net income upon an acquirer obtaining control of an acquiree in which it held an equity interest immediately before the acquisition date (step acquisition). ASU No. 2013-05 will be effective prospectively for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2014, with early adoption permitted. The significance of this guidance for the Company is dependent on any future derecognition events involving the Company's foreign entities.

In February 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-02, "Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income." ASU No. 2013-02 requires companies to provide information about the amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component. Additionally, companies are required to disclose these reclassifications by each respective line item on the statements of income. ASU No. 2013-02 was effective for the Company for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. The adoption of this guidance had no impact on the Company's consolidated financial condition or results of operations. Refer to Note 14, "Equity and Noncontrolling Interests," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for disclosures regarding other comprehensive income.

In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-11, “Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities." ASU No. 2011-11 requires additional quantitative and qualitative disclosures of gross and net information regarding derivative instruments that are offset or eligible for offset in the consolidated statement of financial position. ASU No. 2011-11 was effective for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2013. The adoption of this guidance had no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial condition or results of operations. Refer to Note 15, "Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for disclosure of gross and net information regarding the Company's derivative instruments.

Acquisitions and Divestitures

In the first six months of fiscal 2014, the Company completed two acquisitions for a combined purchase price, net of cash acquired, of $128 million, all of which was paid in the six months ended March 31, 2014. The acquisitions in the aggregate were not material to the Company's consolidated financial statements. In connection with the acquisitions, the Company recorded goodwill of $100 million. The purchase price allocations may be subsequently adjusted to reflect final valuation studies. As a result of one of the acquisitions, which increased the Company's ownership from a noncontrolling to controlling interest, the Company recorded a non-cash gain of $19 million in equity income for the Power Solutions business to adjust the Company's existing equity investment in the partially-owned affiliate to fair value.

In the first six months of fiscal 2014, the Company completed one divestiture for a sales price of $13 million, all of which was received as of March 31, 2014. The divestiture was not material to the Company’s consolidated financial statements. In connection with the divestiture, the Company recorded a gain, net of transaction costs, of $9 million in the Automotive Experience Interiors segment. There was no change in goodwill as a result of this transaction.

In the first six months of fiscal 2014, the Company adjusted the purchase price allocation of certain fiscal 2013 acquisitions and recorded an addition to goodwill of $2 million.

On April 16, 2014, the Company announced that it had reached a definitive agreement to purchase Air Distribution Technologies, one of the strongest and largest independent providers of air distribution and ventilation solutions in North America, for approximately $1.6 billion. This transaction, which is expected to close in July 2014 subject to regulatory and other approvals, is expected to significantly expand the Company's third party distribution channels and create cross-selling opportunities of existing and new products. The Company intends to finance this acquisition through the issuance of debt.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company announced that it had reached a definitive agreement to sell the Automotive Experience Electronics business to Visteon Corporation, subject to regulatory and other approvals. The sale is expected to close in fiscal 2014. At March 31, 2014, the Company determined that the Automotive Experience Electronics segment met the criteria to be classified as a discontinued operation. Refer to Note 4, "Discontinued Operations," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for further disclosure related to the Company's discontinued operations.

Assets and liabilities classified as held for sale are required to be recorded at the lower of carrying value or fair value less any costs to sell. Accordingly, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $41 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 to write down the long-lived assets related to certain product lines of the Automotive Experience Interiors segment to zero. In connection with the anticipated sale of those Interiors product lines, which is expected to occur in fiscal 2014, the Company expects to make a cash payment to the buyer to fund future operational improvement initiatives, which could result in a loss before income taxes of up to $100 million, subject to final negotiations. In addition, the divestiture of the Automotive Experience Electronics segment could result in a gain or loss to the extent the ultimate selling price differs from the carrying value of the net assets recorded.

The Automotive Experience Interiors product lines classified as held for sale are immaterial to the Company individually and in the aggregate, and do not constitute a distinguishable business in order to be classified as a discontinued operation.

The six months ended September 30, 2013 Automotive Experience Electronics business divestitures amount includes $74 million of goodwill transferred to assets held for sale on the consolidated statement of financial position. Refer to Note 4, "Discontinued Operations," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for further information regarding the Company's assets and liabilities held for sale.

Based on a combination of factors relating to the Automotive Experience Interiors business, including the operating results of the business, restrictions on future capital and restructuring funding, and the Company's announced intention to explore strategic options related to this business, the Company's forecasted cash flow estimates used in the goodwill assessment were negatively impacted as of September 30, 2013. As a result, the Company concluded that the carrying value of the Interiors reporting unit exceeded its fair value as of September 30, 2013. The Company recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $430 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, which was determined by comparing the carrying value of the reporting unit's goodwill with the implied fair value of goodwill for the reporting unit. The assumptions included in the impairment test require judgment, and changes to these inputs could impact the results of the calculation. Other than management's internal projections of future cash flows, the primary assumptions used in the impairment test were the weighted-average cost of capital and long-term growth rates. Although the Company's cash flow forecasts are based on assumptions that are considered reasonable by management and consistent with the plans and estimates management is using to operate the underlying business, there is significant judgment in determining the expected future cash flows attributable to the Interiors business.

8.
Product Warranties

The Company offers warranties to its customers depending upon the specific product and terms of the customer purchase agreement. A typical warranty program requires that the Company replace defective products within a specified time period from the date of sale. The Company records an estimate for future warranty-related costs based on actual historical return rates and other known factors. Based on analysis of return rates and other factors, the Company’s warranty provisions are adjusted as necessary. The Company monitors its warranty activity and adjusts its reserve estimates when it is probable that future warranty costs will be different than those estimates.

The Company’s product warranty liability is recorded in the consolidated statements of financial position in other current liabilities if the warranty is less than one year and in other noncurrent liabilities if the warranty extends longer than one year.

The changes in the carrying amount of the Company’s total product warranty liability, including extended warranties for which deferred revenue is recorded, for the six months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 were as follows (in millions):

Significant Restructuring Costs

To better align its resources with its growth strategies and reduce the cost structure of its global operations to address the softness in certain underlying markets, the Company committed to a significant restructuring plan in fiscal 2012 and recorded $297 million of restructuring and impairment costs. As a continuation of its restructuring plan announced in fiscal 2012, the Company recorded $985 million of restructuring and impairment costs in fiscal 2013, of which $84 million was recorded in the second quarter, $143 million in the third quarter and $758 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. The restructuring actions related to cost reduction initiatives in the Company’s Automotive Experience, Building Efficiency and Power Solutions businesses and included planned workforce reductions, plant closures, and asset and goodwill impairments. The restructuring actions are expected to be substantially complete by the end of fiscal 2014.

The following table summarizes the changes in the Company’s restructuring reserve, included within other current liabilities in the consolidated statements of financial position (in millions):

The $31 million of transfers from liabilities held for sale represent restructuring reserves that were included in liabilities held for sale in the consolidated statement of financial position at September 30, 2013, but were excluded from liabilities held for sale at December 31, 2013 based on transaction negotiations. See Note 4, "Discontinued Operations," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for further information regarding the Company's assets and liabilities held for sale.

The Company's restructuring plans include workforce reductions of approximately 16,700 employees (9,500 for the Automotive Experience business, 6,200 for the Building Efficiency business and 1,000 for the Power Solutions business). Restructuring charges associated with employee severance and termination benefits are paid over the severance period granted to each employee or on a lump sum basis in accordance with individual severance agreements. As of March 31, 2014, approximately 11,400 of the employees have been separated from the Company pursuant to the restructuring plans. In addition, the restructuring plans include twenty-one plant closures (seventeen for Automotive Experience, two for Power Solutions and two for Building Efficiency). As of March 31, 2014, twelve of the twenty-one plants have been closed.

Company management closely monitors its overall cost structure and continually analyzes each of its businesses for opportunities to consolidate current operations, improve operating efficiencies and locate facilities in low cost countries in close proximity to customers. This ongoing analysis includes a review of its manufacturing, engineering and purchasing operations, as well as the overall global footprint for all its businesses. Because of the importance of new vehicle sales by major automotive manufacturers to operations, the Company is affected by the general business conditions in this industry. Future adverse developments in the automotive industry could impact the Company’s liquidity position, lead to impairment charges and/or require additional restructuring of its operations.

Income Taxes

In calculating the provision for income taxes, the Company uses an estimate of the annual effective tax rate based upon the facts and circumstances known at each interim period. On a quarterly basis, the actual effective tax rate is adjusted, as appropriate, based upon changed facts and circumstances, if any, as compared to those forecasted at the beginning of the fiscal year and each interim period thereafter. For the three and six months ended March 31, 2014, the Company's effective tax rate for continuing operations was 19% for both periods. The effective rate was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to global tax planning and foreign tax rate differentials. For the three and six months ended March 31, 2013, the Company's effective tax rate was 55% and 35%, respectively. The effective rate for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was higher than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% due to valuation allowance adjustments, an uncertain tax position charge and significant restructuring costs, partially offset by foreign tax rate differentials. The effective rate for the six months ended March 31, 2013 was equal to the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% due to valuation allowance adjustments, an uncertain tax position charge and significant restructuring costs, offset by foreign tax rate differentials.

Valuation Allowance

The Company reviews the realizability of its deferred tax assets on a quarterly basis, or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that a review is required. In determining the requirement for a valuation allowance, the historical and projected financial results of the legal entity or consolidated group recording the net deferred tax asset are considered, along with any other positive or negative evidence. Since future financial results may differ from previous estimates, periodic adjustments to the Company’s valuation allowances may be necessary.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company determined that it was more likely than not that the deferred tax asset associated with a capital loss in Mexico would not be utilized. Therefore, the Company recorded a $21 million valuation allowance as income tax expense.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company performed an analysis of its worldwide deferred tax assets. As a result, and after considering tax planning initiatives and other positive and negative evidence, the Company determined that it was more likely than not that a portion of the deferred tax assets would not be utilized in Brazil and Germany. Therefore, the Company recorded $94 million of valuation allowances as income tax expense. To the extent the Company improves its underlying operating results in these jurisdictions, these valuation allowances, or a portion thereof, could be reversed in future periods.

Uncertain Tax Positions

At September 30, 2013, the Company had gross tax effected unrecognized tax benefits of $1,345 million, of which $1,198 million, if recognized, would impact the effective tax rate. Total net accrued interest at September 30, 2013 was approximately $84 million (net of tax benefit). The net change in interest and penalties during the six months ended March 31, 2014 was not material, and for the same period in fiscal 2013 was $7 million. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income tax expense.

As a result of foreign law changes during the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company increased its total reserve for uncertain tax positions, resulting in income tax expense of $17 million.

The Company expects that certain tax examinations, appellate proceedings and/or tax litigation will conclude within the next twelve months, the impact of which is not expected to be significant to the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Impacts of Tax Legislation

As a result of changes to Mexican tax law in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company recorded a benefit to income tax expense of $25 million. Tax legislation was also adopted in various other jurisdictions during the six month period ended March 31, 2014. These law changes did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

As a result of foreign law changes during the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company increased its total reserve for uncertain tax positions, resulting in income tax expense of $17 million.

The "look-through rule," under subpart F of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, expired for the Company on September 30, 2012. The "look-through rule" had provided an exception to the U.S. taxation of certain income generated by foreign subsidiaries. The rule was extended in January 2013 retroactive to the beginning of the Company's 2013 fiscal year.

Earnings Per Share

The Company presents both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) amounts. Basic EPS is calculated by dividing net income attributable to Johnson Controls, Inc. by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing net income attributable to Johnson Controls, Inc. by the weighted average number of common shares and common equivalent shares outstanding during the reporting period that are calculated using the treasury stock method for stock options and unvested restricted stock. The treasury stock method assumes that the Company uses the proceeds from the exercise of stock option awards to repurchase common stock at the average market price during the period. The assumed proceeds under the treasury stock method include the purchase price that the grantee will pay in the future, compensation cost for future service that the Company has not yet recognized and any windfall tax benefits that would be credited to capital in excess of par value when the award generates a tax deduction. If there would be a shortfall resulting in a charge to capital in excess of par value, such an amount would be a reduction of the proceeds. For unvested restricted stock, assumed proceeds under the treasury stock method would include unamortized compensation cost and windfall tax benefits or shortfalls.

The following table reconciles the numerators and denominators used to calculate basic and diluted earnings per share (in millions):
