TYCO INTERNATIONAL LTD.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

1.    Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

        Basis of Presentation—The Consolidated Financial Statements included herein are unaudited, but in the opinion of management, such financial statements include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to summarize fairly the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim period. The unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements include the consolidated results of Tyco International Ltd., a corporation organized under the laws of Switzerland, and its subsidiaries (Tyco and all its subsidiaries, hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Company" or "Tyco"). The financial statements have been prepared in United States dollars ("USD") and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The results reported in these Consolidated Financial Statements should not be taken as indicative of results that may be expected for the entire year. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 24, 2010 (the "2010 Form 10-K").

        During the first quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company realigned its Safety Products segment between its ADT Worldwide and Fire Protection Services segments to create two new segments: Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection. Tyco Security Solutions consists of the former ADT Worldwide segment as well as the portion of the former Safety Products segment that manufactures security products including intrusion, security, access control and video management systems. Tyco Fire Protection consists of the former Fire Protection Services segment as well as a number of businesses from the former Safety Products segment including the fire suppression and life safety products businesses. In addition, various businesses were realigned between Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection. See Note 15.

        As a result of this realignment, as well as the sale of a majority interest in the Electrical and Metal Products business (See Note 2), the Company has three core businesses: Tyco Security Solutions, Tyco Fire Protection and Tyco Flow Control.

        References to 2011 and 2010 are to Tyco's fiscal quarters ending December 24, 2010 and December 25, 2009, respectively, unless otherwise indicated.

        Reclassifications—The Company has reclassified certain businesses which have satisfied the criteria to be presented as discontinued operations to income from discontinued operations in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and assets and liabilities held for sale within the Consolidated Balance Sheets. See Note 2. As a result of the segment realignment prior period segment amounts have been recast to conform to the current period presentation.

        Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements—In September 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued authoritative guidance for the accounting for revenue arrangements with multiple deliverables. The guidance establishes a selling price hierarchy for determining the selling price of a deliverable. The selling price used for each deliverable will be based on vendor-specific objective evidence ("VSOE") if available, third-party evidence ("TPE") if VSOE is not available, or estimated selling price if neither VSOE nor TPE is available. The guidance requires arrangements under which multiple revenue generating activities to be performed be allocated at inception. The residual method under the existing accounting guidance has been eliminated. The guidance became effective for Tyco for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified beginning in the first

quarter of fiscal 2011. The adoption of the guidance did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

        In June 2009, the FASB issued authoritative guidance which amended the existing guidance for the consolidation of variable interest entities ("VIE"), to address the elimination of the concept of a qualifying special purpose entity. The guidance also replaces the quantitative-based risks and rewards calculation for determining which enterprise has a controlling financial interest in a VIE with an approach focused on identifying which enterprise has the power to direct the significant activities of a VIE, and the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits that may be significant to the VIE. The guidance became effective for Tyco in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. The Company's population of VIE's is primarily composed of joint ventures that relate to our consolidated operations and are not material to the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows. The adoption of this guidance resulted in the deconsolidation of a joint venture in the Company's Tyco Fire Protection segment, but it did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

2.    Divestitures

        The Company has continued to assess the strategic fit of its various businesses and has pursued divestiture of certain businesses which do not align with its long-term strategy.

        On November 9, 2010, the Company announced that it entered into an agreement to sell a majority interest in its Electrical and Metal Products business to an affiliate of the private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, LLC (the "Investor"). The Company formed a newly incorporated holding company, Atkore International Group Inc. ("Atkore"), to hold the Company's Electrical and Metal Products business. On December 22, 2010, the transaction closed and the Investor acquired shares of a newly-created class of cumulative convertible preferred stock of Atkore (the "Preferred Stock") to the Investor. The Preferred Stock initially represented 51% of the outstanding capital stock (on an as-converted basis) of Atkore. In connection with the closing, the Company received cash proceeds of approximately $713 million and recorded a gain of $259 million (including the $49 million gain recognized in connection with determining the fair value of the Company's retained ownership interest discussed below), subject to the settlement of the final working capital adjustment, which is recorded within restructuring, asset impairment and divestiture charges (gain), net in the Company's Consolidated Statement of Operations for the quarter ended December 24, 2010.

        In connection with the sale, the Company was required to determine the fair value of its retained ownership interest in Atkore. The fair value of the retained ownership interest was determined by implying a total equity value of Atkore using the price paid by the Investor for the Preferred Stock less the expected present value of dividends to be paid on the Preferred Stock (the "Implied Equity Value"). The discount rate utilized to determine the present value of the expected dividends was calculated by taking the average of the stated return on the Preferred Stock pursuant to the Agreement and Atkore's estimated cost of equity. The Implied Equity Value was then allocated to the Company's retained ownership interest. To arrive at the fair value of the Company's retained ownership interest the Company applied a discount factor to the Company's allocated Implied Equity Value due to the lack of marketability of the common stock of Atkore, which will operate as a privately held company. The fair value of the Company's retained ownership interest was determined to be $137 million resulting in the Company recognizing a $49 million gain upon deconsolidation. Tyco's retained

2.    Divestitures (Continued)


ownership interest in Atkore is accounted for under the equity method of accounting and is recorded in other assets in the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 24, 2010. The Company did not recognize any equity income with respect to Atkore as the amount was not material for the quarter ended December 24, 2010.

Discontinued Operations

        On September 30, 2010, the Company sold its European water business which was part of the Company's Flow Control segment.

2007 and pre-2006 Programs

        During fiscal 2007 and 2008, the Company launched a restructuring program across all of the Company's segments, including the corporate organization, to streamline some of the businesses and reduce the operational footprint (the "2007 Program"). As of December 26, 2008, the Company had substantially completed this program. The Company maintained a restructuring reserve related to the 2007 Program of $24 million and $26 million as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, respectively. The Company incurred $2 million of charges and utilized $3 million of the restructuring reserve balance during the quarter ended December 24, 2010. In addition, the Company continues to maintain restructuring reserves related to certain programs initiated prior to 2006. The total amount of these reserves was $14 million as of both December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010. The aggregate remaining reserves related to the 2007 and pre-2006 programs primarily relate to facility exit costs for long-term non-cancelable lease obligations with expirations dates that range from 2011 to 2022 within the Company's Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection segments.

Total Restructuring Reserves

        As of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, restructuring reserves related to the 2011, 2009, 2007 and pre-2006 programs, were included in the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets as follows ($ in millions):

4.    Acquisitions

Acquisition Related Costs

        Acquisition costs are expensed as incurred. The Company's Tyco Security Solutions segment incurred $5 million of integration costs in connection with its acquisition of Broadview Security. Such costs are recorded within selling, general and administrative expenses in the Company's Consolidated Statement of Operations for the quarter ended December 24, 2010.

Acquisitions

        During the quarter ended December 24, 2010, cash paid for acquisitions included in continuing operations totaled $9 million, primarily within the Company's Tyco Flow Control and Tyco Fire Protection segments.

        During the quarter ended December 25, 2009, cash paid for acquisitions included in continuing operations totaled $143 million, net of cash acquired of $1 million, which primarily related to the acquisition of two Brazilian valve companies, including Hiter Industria e Comercio de Controle Termo-Hidraulico Ltda ("Hiter"), a valve manufacturer which serves a variety of industries including the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical markets. Net cash paid for the Brazilian valve companies totaled $104 million by the Company's Tyco Flow Control segment. In addition, the Company acquired certain assets of a business within its Electrical and Metal Products segment for $39 million.

Tyco Security Solutions Account Acquisitions

        During the quarters ended December 24, 2010 and December 25, 2009, Tyco paid $133 million and $150 million of cash, respectively, to acquire approximately 121,000 and 129,000 customer contracts for electronic security services in the Company's Tyco Security Solutions segment.

5.    Income Taxes

        The Company did not have a significant change to its unrecognized tax benefits during the quarter ended December 24, 2010.

        Many of Tyco's uncertain tax positions relate to tax years that remain subject to audit by the taxing authorities in U.S. federal, state and local or foreign jurisdictions. Open tax years in significant jurisdictions are as follows:

5.    Income Taxes (Continued)

        Based on the current status of its income tax audits, the Company believes that it is reasonably possible that between $16 million and $145 million in unrecognized tax benefits may be resolved in the next twelve months.

        At each balance sheet date, management evaluates whether it is more likely than not that the Company's deferred tax assets will be realized and if sufficient future taxable income will be available by assessing current period and projected operating results and other pertinent data. As of December 24, 2010, the Company had recorded deferred tax assets of $1.4 billion, which is comprised of $2.8 billion gross deferred tax assets net of $1.4 billion valuation allowances. Depending on prevailing economic conditions future taxable income of entities with deferred tax assets may be negatively impacted, which may require additional valuation allowances to be recorded in future reporting periods related to the Company's deferred tax assets.

Tax Sharing Agreement and Other Income Tax Matters

        In connection with the spin-offs of Covidien and Tyco Electronics from Tyco (the "Separation"), Tyco entered into a Tax Sharing Agreement that generally governs Covidien's, Tyco Electronics' and Tyco's respective rights, responsibilities, and obligations after the Separation with respect to taxes, including ordinary course of business taxes and taxes, if any, incurred as a result of any failure of the distribution of all of the shares of Covidien or Tyco Electronics to qualify as a tax-free distribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes within the meaning of Section 355 of the Code or certain internal transactions undertaken in anticipation of the spin-offs to qualify for tax-favored treatment under the Code.

        Under the Tax Sharing Agreement, the Company shares responsibility for certain of Tyco's, Covidien's and Tyco Electronics' income tax liabilities, which result in cash payments, based on a sharing formula for periods prior to and including June 29, 2007. More specifically, Tyco, Covidien and Tyco Electronics share 27%, 42% and 31%, respectively, of shared income tax liabilities that arise from adjustments made by tax authorities to Tyco's, Covidien's and Tyco Electronics' U.S. and certain non-U.S. income tax returns. The costs and expenses associated with the management of these shared tax liabilities are generally shared equally among the parties. In connection with the execution of the Tax Sharing Agreement, Tyco established a net receivable from Covidien and Tyco Electronics representing the amount the Company expected to receive for pre-Separation uncertain tax positions. Such amounts include any amounts owed to the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS"). As of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, respectively, the aggregate amount of the net receivable was $115 million and $114 million, respectively, of which $89 million for both periods was included in other assets and $26 million and $25 million, respectively, was included in prepaid expenses and other current assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheet. The Company also established liabilities representing the fair market value of its share of Covidien's and Tyco Electronics' estimated obligations, primarily to the IRS, for their pre-Separation taxes covered by the Tax Sharing Agreement. As of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, the Company had recorded $374 million and $398 million, respectively, in other liabilities, and $180 million and $156 million, respectively, in accrued and other current liabilities. During the first quarter of 2011, the Company reclassified $24 million, from other liabilities to accrued and other current liabilities as it expects to make a payment within the next twelve months to Covidien and Tyco Electronics related to resolution of certain IRS audit matters.

5.    Income Taxes (Continued)

        Tyco assesses the shared tax liabilities and related guaranteed liabilities at each reporting period. The receivable and liability were initially recognized with an offset to shareholders' equity in 2007. During the quarters ended December 24, 2010 and December 25, 2009, the Company recorded income of $1 million and $9 million, respectively, in accordance with the Tax Sharing Agreement. Tyco will provide payment to Covidien and Tyco Electronics under the Tax Sharing Agreement as the shared income tax liabilities are settled. Settlement is expected to occur as the audit process by applicable taxing authorities is completed for the impacted years and cash payments are made. Given the nature of the shared liabilities, the maximum amount of potential future payments is not determinable. Such cash payments, when they occur, will reduce the guarantor liability as such payments represent an equivalent reduction of risk. The Company also assesses the sufficiency of the Tax Sharing Agreement guarantee liability on a quarterly basis and will increase the liability when it is probable that cash payments expected to be made under the Tax Sharing Agreement exceed the recorded balance.

        Tyco and its subsidiaries' income tax returns are examined periodically by various tax authorities. In connection with these examinations, tax authorities, including the IRS, have raised issues and proposed tax adjustments, in particular with respect to years preceding the Separation. The issues and proposed adjustments related to such years are generally subject to the sharing provisions of the Tax Sharing Agreement. Tyco is reviewing and contesting certain of the proposed tax adjustments. With respect to adjustments raised by the IRS, although the Company expects to resolve a substantial number of these adjustments with the IRS, a few significant items are expected to remain open with respect the audit of the 1997 through 2004 years. As of the date hereof, it is unlikely that the Company will be able to resolve these open items, which primarily involve the treatment of certain intercompany transactions during the period, through the IRS appeals process. As a result, the Company may be required to litigate these matters. The Company has assessed its obligations under the Tax Sharing Agreement, including with respect to the proposed civil fraud penalties discussed below, to determine that its recorded liability of $554 million is sufficient to cover the indemnifications made by the Company under such agreement. See Note 18. However, the ultimate resolution of these matters is uncertain and could result in a material adverse impact to the Company's financial position, results of operations, cash flows or the effective tax rate in future reporting periods.

        In connection with the aforementioned audits, the IRS proposed civil fraud penalties against a prior subsidiary that was distributed to Tyco Electronics in connection with the Separation. The penalties allegedly arise from actions of former executives taken in connection with intercompany transfers of stock of Simplex Technologies in 1998 and 1999. Based on statutory guidelines, the Company estimates the proposed penalties could range between $30 million and $50 million. This is a pre-Separation tax liability that is covered by the provisions of the Tax Sharing Agreement. Also in connection with the IRS audits described above, during the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company, as Audit Management Party under the Tax Sharing Agreement, reached a settlement agreement with the IRS on certain deductions taken by Tyco, Covidien and Tyco Electronics on pre-separation tax returns filed for the periods 2001 to 2004. The settlement did not have a material effect to the Company's results of operations, financial position or cash flows. Additionally, the Company considered the potential impact of the settlement as part of its quarterly assessment of the guarantee liability and concluded that no adjustment to the liability was needed.

        In addition to dealing with pre-Separation tax liabilities of each of the three entities party thereto, the Tax Sharing Agreement contains sharing provisions to address the contingency that the Separation itself, or internal transactions related to the Separation, may be deemed taxable by U.S. or non U.S.

taxing authorities. In the event the Separation is determined to be taxable and such determination was the result of actions taken after the Separation by Tyco, Covidien or Tyco Electronics, the party responsible for such failure would be responsible for all taxes imposed on each company as a result thereof. If such determination is not the result of actions taken by any of the three companies after the Separation, then Tyco, Covidien and Tyco Electronics would be responsible for 27%, 42% and 31%, respectively, of any taxes imposed on any of the companies as a result of such determination. Such tax amounts could be significant. The Company is responsible for all of its own taxes that are not shared pursuant to the Tax Sharing Agreement's sharing formula. In addition, Covidien and Tyco Electronics are responsible for their tax liabilities that are not subject to the Tax Sharing Agreement's sharing formula.

        If any party to the Tax Sharing Agreement were to default in its obligation to another party to pay its share of the distribution taxes that arise as a result of no party's fault, each non-defaulting party would be required to pay, equally with any other non-defaulting party, the amounts in default. In addition, if another party to the Tax Sharing Agreement that is responsible for all or a portion of an income tax liability were to default in its payment of such liability to a taxing authority, the Company could be liable under applicable tax law for such liabilities and required to make additional tax payments. Accordingly, under certain circumstances, the Company may be obligated to pay amounts in excess of its agreed-upon share of Tyco's, Covidien's and Tyco Electronics' tax liabilities. See Note 18 for further discussion of guarantees and indemnifications extended between Tyco, Covidien and Tyco Electronics.

        Except for earnings that are currently distributed, no additional material provision has been made for U.S. or non-U.S. income taxes on the undistributed earnings of subsidiaries or for unrecognized deferred tax liabilities for temporary differences related to investments in subsidiaries, since the earnings are expected to be permanently reinvested, the investments are essentially permanent in duration, or the Company has concluded that no additional tax liability will arise as a result of the distribution of such earnings. A liability could arise if amounts are distributed by such subsidiaries or if such subsidiaries are ultimately disposed. It is not practicable to estimate the additional income taxes related to permanently reinvested earnings or the basis differences related to investments in subsidiaries.

        The computation of diluted earnings per share for the quarter December 24, 2010 excludes the effect of the potential exercise of share options to purchase approximately 13 million shares and excludes restricted stock units of approximately 1 million shares because the effect would be anti-dilutive.

        The computation of diluted earnings per share for the quarter December 25, 2009 excludes the effect of the potential exercise of share options to purchase approximately 17 million shares and excludes restricted stock units of approximately 2 million because the effect would be anti-dilutive.

7.    Goodwill and Intangible Assets

        Annually, in the fiscal fourth quarter, and more frequently if triggering events occur, the Company tests goodwill for impairment by comparing the fair value of each reporting unit with its carrying amount. Fair value for each reporting unit is determined utilizing a discounted cash flow analysis based on the Company's forecast cash flows discounted using an estimated weighted-average cost of capital of market participants. A market approach is utilized to corroborate the discounted cash flow analysis performed at each reporting unit. If the carrying amount of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value, goodwill is considered potentially impaired. In determining fair value, management relies on and considers a number of factors, including operating results, business plans, economic projections, including expectations and assumptions regarding the timing and degree of any economic recovery, anticipated future cash flow, comparable market transactions (to the extent available), other market data and the Company's overall market capitalization.

        During the first quarter of fiscal 2011 the Company realigned its Safety Products segment between its ADT Worldwide and Fire Protection segments to create two new segments: Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection. Also, various businesses were realigned between Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection. As a result of the realignment of business activities, the balances as of September 25, 2009 have been recast. As part of the realignment the Company tested the related goodwill balances for recoverability and determined goodwill continues to be recoverable.

    Fair value

        The carrying amount of Tyco's debt subject to the fair value disclosure requirements as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010 was $4,065 million for both periods. The Company has determined the fair value of such debt to be $4,581 million and $4,730 million as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, respectively. The Company utilizes various valuation methodologies to determine the fair value of its debt, which is primarily dependent on the type of market in which the Company's debt is traded. When available, the Company uses quoted market prices to determine the fair value of its debt that is traded in active markets. As of December 24, 2010, all of the Company's debt was actively traded.

    Commercial paper

        As of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, Tyco International Finance, S.A. ("TIFSA"), the Company's finance subsidiary, had no commercial paper outstanding.

    Credit facilities

        The Company's committed revolving credit facilities totaled $1,690 million as of December 24, 2010 which is comprised of a $500 million and a $1,190 million revolving senior credit facilities due 2011 and 2012, respectively. These revolving credit facilities may be used for working capital, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes. As of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010 there were no amounts drawn under these facilities. Interest under the revolving credit facilities is variable and is calculated by reference to LIBOR or an alternate base rate.

    Debt Issuance

        On October 5, 2009, TIFSA issued $500 million aggregate principal amount of 4.125% notes due on October 15, 2014, which are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Company (the "2014 notes"). TIFSA received net proceeds of approximately $495 million after deducting debt issuance costs of approximately $3 million and a debt discount of approximately $2 million. The 2014 notes are unsecured and rank equally with TIFSA's other unsecured and unsubordinated debt. TIFSA may redeem any of the 2014 notes at any time by paying the greater of the principal amount of the notes or a "make-whole" amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest. The holders of the 2014 notes have the right to require TIFSA to repurchase all or a portion of the notes at a purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the notes repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest upon the occurrence of a change of control triggering event, which requires both a change of control and a rating event, each as defined in the indenture governing the notes. The debt issuance costs will be amortized from the date of issuance to the maturity date. Interest is payable semiannually on April 15th and October 15th.

9.    Financial Instruments

        The Company's financial instruments consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, investments, accounts payable, debt and derivative financial instruments. The fair value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximated book value as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010. The fair value of derivative financial instruments was not material to any of the periods presented. See below for the fair value of investments and Note 8 for debt.

Derivative Instruments

        In the normal course of business, Tyco is exposed to market risk arising from changes in currency exchange rates, interest rates and commodity prices. The Company uses derivative financial instruments to manage exposures to foreign currency, interest rate and commodity price risks. The Company's objective for utilizing derivative financial instruments is to manage these risks using the most effective methods to eliminate or reduce the impacts of these exposures.

        For derivative instruments that are designated and qualify as fair value hedges, the Company documented the relationships between the hedging instruments and hedged items and linked derivatives designated as fair value hedges to specific debt issuances. For transactions designated as hedges, the Company also assessed and documented at the hedge's inception whether the derivatives used in hedging transactions were effective in offsetting changes in fair values associated with the hedged items. The fair value hedges did not result in any hedge ineffectiveness for the quarter ended December 24, 2010. The Company does not use derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes.

        All derivative financial instruments are reported on the Consolidated Balance Sheet at fair value with changes in the fair value of the derivative financial instruments recognized currently in the Company's Statement of Operations, with the exception of net investment hedges for which changes in fair value are reported in the cumulative translation component of accumulated other comprehensive loss to the extent the hedges are effective. The ineffective portion of the hedge, if any, is recognized in the Consolidated Statement of Operations. The derivative financial instruments and impact of such changes in the fair value of the derivative financial instruments was not material to the Consolidated

Balance Sheets as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010 or Consolidated Statements of Operations and Statement of Cash Flows for the quarters ended December 24, 2010 and December 25, 2009.

Foreign Currency Exposures

        The Company manages foreign currency exchange rate risk through the use of derivative financial instruments comprised principally of forward contracts on foreign currency which are not designated as hedging instruments for accounting purposes. The objective of those derivatives instruments is to minimize the income statement impact and potential variability in cash flows associated with intercompany loans and accounts receivable, accounts payable and forecasted transactions that are denominated in certain foreign currencies. As of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, the total gross notional amount of the Company's foreign exchange contracts was $932 million and $860 million, respectively. Effective March 17, 2009, Tyco changed its jurisdiction of incorporation from Bermuda to Switzerland. Until the final payment is made out of registered capital in February 2011, Tyco intends to make dividend payments in the form of a reduction of capital, denominated in Swiss francs (See Note 12). However, the Company expects to actually pay dividends in U.S. dollars, based on exchange rates in effect shortly before the payment date. Fluctuations in the value of the U.S. dollar compared to the Swiss franc between the date the dividend is declared and paid will increase or decrease the U.S. dollar amount required to be paid. The Company manages the potential variability in cash flows associated with the dividend payments by entering into derivative financial instruments used as economic hedges of the underlying risk. Beginning in May 2011, the Company expects to make dividend payments out of contributed surplus, in U.S. dollars which should eliminate the need to use currency hedges for dividend payments.

        During the third quarter of 2010, the Company hedged its net investment in certain foreign operations through the use of foreign exchange forward contracts. The objective is to minimize the exposure to changes in the value of the foreign currency denominated net investment. The aggregate notional amount of these hedges was $208 million and $255 million as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010 respectively. Changes in the fair value of forward contracts qualifying as net investment hedges are reported in cumulative translation component of accumulated other comprehensive loss to the extent the hedges are effective. The ineffective portion of the hedge, if any, is recognized in the Company's Consolidated Statement of Operations. These contracts did not have a material impact to the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 24, 2010. There was no hedge ineffectiveness for the quarter ended December 24, 2010.

Interest Rate Exposures

        The Company manages interest rate risk through the use of interest rate swap transactions with financial institutions acting as principal counterparties, which are designated as fair value hedges for accounting purposes. During the third quarter of 2009, first quarter of 2010 and third quarter of 2010, the Company entered into interest rate swap transactions with the objective of managing the exposure to interest rate risk by converting the interest rates on $1.4 billion, $500 million and $501 million respectively, of fixed-rate debt to variable rates. In these contracts, the Company agrees with financial institutions acting as principal counterparties to exchange, at specified intervals, the difference between fixed and floating interest amounts calculated on an agreed-upon notional principal amount. As of

21

TYCO INTERNATIONAL LTD.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED) (Continued)

9.    Financial Instruments (Continued)


December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, the total gross notional amount of the Company's interest rate swap contracts was $1.5 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively.

Commodity Exposures

        During fiscal 2010, the Company entered into commodity swaps for copper which are not designated as hedging instruments for accounting purposes, which did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Counterparty Credit Risk

        The use of derivative financial instruments exposes the Company to counterparty credit risk. If the counterparty fails to perform, the Company is exposed to losses if the derivative is in an asset position. When the fair value of a derivative instrument is an asset, the counterparty has to pay the Company to settle the contract. This exposes the Company to credit risk. However, when the fair value of a derivative instrument is a liability, the Company has to pay the counterparty to settle the contract and therefore there is no counterparty credit risk. Tyco has established policies and procedures to limit the potential for counterparty credit risk, including establishing limits for credit exposure and continually assessing the creditworthiness of counterparties. As a matter of practice, the Company deals with major banks worldwide having long-term Standard & Poor's and Moody's credit ratings of A-/A3 or higher. To further reduce the risk of loss, the Company generally enters into International Swaps and Derivatives Association master agreements with substantially all of its counterparties. Master netting agreements provide protection in bankruptcy in certain circumstances and, in some cases, enable receivables and payables with the same counterparty to be offset on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, providing for a more meaningful balance sheet presentation of credit exposure. The Company's derivative contracts do not contain any credit risk related contingent features and do not require collateral or other security to be furnished by the Company or the counterparties.

        The Company's exposure to credit risk associated with its derivative instruments is measured on an individual counterparty basis, as well as by groups of counterparties that share similar attributes. As of December 24, 2010, the Company was exposed to industry concentration with financial institutions as well as risk of loss if an individual counterparty or issuer failed to perform its obligations under contractual terms. The maximum amount of loss that the Company would incur as of December 24, 2010 without giving consideration to the effects of legally enforceable master netting agreements, was approximately $46 million.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

        Authoritative guidance for fair value measurements establishes a three-level hierarchy that ranks the quality and reliability of information used in developing fair value estimates. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets and the lowest priority to unobservable data. In cases where two or more levels of inputs are used to determine fair value, a financial instrument's level is determined based on the lowest level input that is considered significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are summarized as follows:

    Level 1—inputs are based upon quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities which are accessible as of the measurement date.

22


Table of Contents


TYCO INTERNATIONAL LTD.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED) (Continued)

9.    Financial Instruments (Continued)

    Level 2—inputs are based upon quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, and model-derived valuations for the asset or liability that are derived principally from or corroborated by market data for which the primary inputs are observable, including forward interest rates, yield curves, credit risk and exchange rates.

    Level 3—inputs for the valuations are unobservable and are based on management's estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. The fair values are therefore determined using model-based techniques such as option pricing models and discounted cash flow models.

Investments

        Investments primarily include cash equivalents, U.S. government obligations, U.S. government agency securities and corporate debt securities.

        When available, the Company uses quoted market prices to determine the fair value of investment securities. Such investments are included in Level 1. When quoted market prices are not readily available, pricing determinations are made based on the results of market approach valuation models using observable market data such as recently reported trades, bid and offer information and benchmark securities. These investments are included in Level 2 and consist primarily of U.S. government agency securities and corporate debt securities.

Derivative Financial Instruments

        As described above, under the caption "Derivative Instruments" derivative assets and liabilities consist principally of forward foreign currency exchange contracts and interest rate swaps. The fair values for these derivative financial instruments are derived from market approach pricing models that take into account the contractual terms and features of each instrument, forward foreign currency rates for the Company's foreign exchange contracts and yield curves for the Company's interest rate swaps existing at the end of the period. Valuations are adjusted to reflect creditworthiness of the counterparty for assets and the creditworthiness of the Company for liabilities. Such adjustments are based on observable market evidence and are categorized as Level 2 exposures. Derivative financial instruments are not presented in the following tables as the derivative financial instruments were not material to any of the periods presented.

Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

        The following tables present the Company's assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010 by level within the fair value

        The Company had $3.0 billion of intercompany loans designated as permanent in nature as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, respectively. For the quarters ended December 24, 2010 and December 25, 2009, the Company recorded $5 million and $37 million, respectively, of cumulative translation loss through accumulated other comprehensive loss related to these loans.

10.    Commitments and Contingencies

        In connection with the Separation, the Company entered into a liability sharing agreement regarding certain legal actions that were pending against Tyco prior to the Separation. Under the Separation and Distribution Agreement, the Company, Covidien and Tyco Electronics are jointly and severally liable for the full amount of any judgments resulting from the actions subject to the agreement, which generally relate to legacy matters that were not specific to the business operations of any of the companies. Substantially all of these legacy matters have been resolved. Additionally, at the time of the Separation, the Company, Covidien and Tyco Electronics agreed to allocate responsibility for certain legacy tax claims pursuant to the same formula under the Tax Sharing Agreement. A number of the legacy tax claims remain outstanding. See Note 5.

Legacy Securities Matters

        During the fiscal quarter ended December 24, 2010, certain contingencies related to the previously disclosed settlement of the Stumpf v. Tyco International Ltd. class action lawsuit elapsed. This matter, which was subject to the liability sharing provisions of the Separation and Distribution Agreement with Covidien and Tyco Electronics, had previously received final court approval for its settlement. As a result of the lapsing of time periods for certain class members to state a claim against the Company, the Company adjusted its remaining reserve for this and other legacy securities matters and recognized a net gain of $7 million during the quarter ended December 24, 2010. Since June 2007, the Company has resolved substantially all other non-tax legacy claims related to securities fraud and similar matters, with the exception of the claims related to former management and Mr. Frank Walsh Jr., a former director, described below.

        Tyco is a party to several lawsuits involving disputes with former management, among which are affirmative cases brought by Tyco against Mr. Dennis L. Kozlowski, Tyco's former chief executive officer, Mr. Mark Swartz, its former chief financial officer, and Mr. Frank Walsh Jr.. In connection with these affirmative actions, Messrs. Kozlowski and Swartz are seeking an aggregate of approximately $128 million allegedly due in connection with their compensation and retention arrangements and under ERISA.

        With respect to Mr. Kozlowski, on December 1, 2010, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled in favor of several of the Company's affirmative claims against him before trial, while dismissing all of Kozlowski's counterclaims for pay and benefits after 1995. The Company expects Mr. Kozlowski to appeal this decision after final judgment is entered. As a result, the Company has and will continue to maintain the reserve recorded in its Consolidated Balance Sheet for the amounts allegedly due under their compensation and retention arrangements and under ERISA until the appeals process is complete. Although their ultimate resolution could differ materially from these estimates, the Company does not believe such resolution would have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

        Tyco has also brought an action against Mr. Walsh in connection with the damages suffered by Tyco arising from Walsh's breach of his fiduciary duties to Tyco. In October 2010, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York denied Tyco's affirmative claims for recovery of damages against Mr. Walsh. Tyco is pursuing an appeal. This affirmative matter, and the affirmative matters against Messrs. Kozlowski and Walsh, are not subject to the liability sharing provisions of the Separation and Distribution Agreement. Separately, Mr. Walsh is pursuing a New York state court claim against the Company asserting his entitlement to indemnification. This action is subject to the liability sharing provisions of the Separation and Distribution Agreement.

Environmental Matters

        Tyco is involved in various stages of investigation and cleanup related to environmental remediation matters at a number of sites. The ultimate cost of site cleanup is difficult to predict given the uncertainties regarding the extent of the required cleanup, the interpretation of applicable laws and regulations and alternative cleanup methods. As of December 24, 2010, Tyco concluded that it was probable that it would incur remedial costs in the range of approximately $23 million to $80 million. As of December 24, 2010, Tyco concluded that the best estimate within this range is approximately $30 million, of which $8 million is included in accrued and other current liabilities and $22 million is

included in other liabilities in the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheet. In view of the Company's financial position and reserves for environmental matters, the Company believes that any potential payments of such estimated amounts will not have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Asbestos Matters

        The Company and certain of its subsidiaries along with numerous other companies are named as defendants in personal injury lawsuits based on alleged exposure to asbestos-containing materials. These cases typically involve product liability claims based primarily on allegations of manufacture, sale or distribution of industrial products that either contained asbestos or were attached to or used with asbestos-containing components manufactured by third-parties. Each case typically names between dozens to hundreds of corporate defendants. While the Company has observed an increase in the number of these lawsuits over the past several years, including lawsuits by plaintiffs with mesothelioma-related claims, a large percentage of these suits have not presented viable legal claims and, as a result, have been dismissed by the courts. The Company's strategy has been, and continues to be, to mount a vigorous defense aimed at having unsubstantiated suits dismissed, and, where appropriate, settling suits before trial. Although a large percentage of litigated suits have been dismissed, the Company cannot predict the extent to which it will be successful in resolving lawsuits in the future. As of December 24, 2010, there were approximately 4,400 lawsuits pending against the Company, its subsidiaries or entities for which the Company has assumed responsibility. Each lawsuit typically includes several claims, and the Company has determined that there were approximately 5,100 claims outstanding as of December 24, 2010, which amount reflects the Company's current estimate of the number of viable claims made against it, its affiliates or entities for which it has assumed responsibility in connection with acquisitions or divestitures. This amount includes adjustments for claims that are not actively being prosecuted, identify incorrect defendants or are duplicative of other actions.

        Annually, the Company performs an analysis with the assistance of outside counsel and other experts to update its estimated asbestos-related assets and liabilities. Due to a high degree of uncertainty regarding the pattern and length of time over which claims will be made and then settled or litigated, the Company uses multiple estimation methodologies based on varying scenarios of potential outcomes to estimate the range of loss. The Company's estimate of the liability and corresponding insurance recovery for pending and future claims and defense costs is predominantly based on claim experience over the past five years, and a projection which covers claims expected to be filed, including related defense costs, over the next seven years on an undiscounted basis. The Company has concluded that estimating the liability beyond the seven year period will not provide a reasonable estimate, as these uncertainties increase significantly as the projection period lengthens. The Company's estimate of asbestos-related insurance recoveries represents estimated amounts due to the Company for previously paid and settled claims and the probable reimbursements relating to its estimated liability for pending and future claims. In determining the amount of insurance recoverable, the Company considers a number of factors, including available insurance, allocation methodologies, solvency and creditworthiness of the insurers. On a quarterly basis, the company re-evaluates the assumptions used to perform the annual analysis and records an expense as necessary to reflect changes in its estimated liability and related insurance asset.

        As of December 24, 2010, the Company's estimated net liability of $101 million was recorded within the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheet as a liability for pending and future claims and

26


Table of Contents


TYCO INTERNATIONAL LTD.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED) (Continued)

10.    Commitments and Contingencies (Continued)


related defense costs of $314 million, and separately as an asset for insurance recoveries of $213 million. Similarly, as of September 24, 2010, the Company's estimated net liability of $106 million was recorded within the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheet as a liability for pending and future claims and related defense costs of $309 million, and separately as an asset for insurance recoveries of $203 million.

        The amounts recorded by the Company for asbestos-related liabilities and insurance-related assets are based on currently available information as well as estimates and assumptions. Key variables and assumptions include the number and type of new claims that are filed each year, the average cost of resolution of claims, the resolution of coverage issues with insurance carriers, amount of insurance and the solvency risk with respect to the Company's insurance carriers. Furthermore, predictions with respect to these variables are subject to greater uncertainty in the later portion of the projection period. Other factors that may affect the Company's liability and cash payments for asbestos-related matters include uncertainties surrounding the litigation process from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and from case to case, reforms of state or federal tort legislation and the applicability of insurance policies among subsidiaries. The Company believes that its asbestos-related reserves as of December 24, 2010 are appropriate. However, actual liabilities or insurance recoveries could be significantly higher or lower than those recorded if assumptions used in the Company's calculations vary significantly from actual results.

Compliance Matters

        As previously reported in the Company's periodic filings, the Company has received and responded to various allegations and other information that certain improper payments were made by the Company's subsidiaries and agents in recent years. For example, two subsidiaries in the Company's Flow Control business in Italy have been charged, along with numerous other parties, in connection with the Milan public prosecutor's investigation into allegedly improper payments made to certain Italian entities. The Company reported to the U.S. Department of Justice ("DOJ") and the SEC the investigative steps and remedial measures that it has taken in response to these and other allegations and its internal investigations. In 2005, the Company informed the DOJ and the SEC that it retained outside counsel to perform a Company-wide baseline review of its policies, controls and practices with respect to compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA"), and that it would continue to investigate and make periodic progress reports to these agencies. The Company has and will continue to communicate with the DOJ and SEC to provide updates on the baseline review and follow-up investigations, including, as appropriate, briefings concerning additional instances of potential improper conduct identified by the Company in the course of its ongoing compliance activities. The baseline review, which has been completed, has revealed that some business practices may not comply with Tyco and FCPA requirements, and in February 2010, the Company initiated discussions with the DOJ and SEC aimed at resolving these matters. Active discussions remain ongoing, and the Company cannot predict the timing of their resolution or their outcome and cannot estimate the range of potential loss or the form of penalty that may result from an adverse resolution. It is possible that the Company may be required to pay material fines, consent to injunctions on future conduct, consent to the imposition of a compliance monitor, or suffer other criminal or civil penalties or adverse impacts, including being subject to lawsuits brought by private litigants, each of which may have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

10.    Commitments and Contingencies (Continued)

        Covidien and Tyco Electronics agreed, in connection with the Separation, to cooperate with the Company in its responses regarding these matters. Any judgment required to be paid or settlement or other cost incurred by the Company in connection with the FCPA investigations matters would be subject to the liability sharing provisions of the Separation and Distribution Agreement, which assigned liabilities primarily related to the former Healthcare and Electronics businesses of the Company to Covidien and Tyco Electronics, respectively, and provides that the Company will retain liabilities primarily related to its continuing operations. Any liabilities not primarily related to a particular segment will be shared equally among the Company, Covidien and Tyco Electronics.

        As previously disclosed, in early 2007 certain former subsidiaries in the Company's Flow Control business were charged, prior to their divestiure, by the German Federal Cartel Office ("FCO") with engaging in anti-competitive practices, in particular with regard to its hydrant, valve, street box and fittings business. The Company investigated this matter and determined that the conduct may have violated German competition law. The Company is cooperating with the FCO in its ongoing investigation of this violation. The Company cannot estimate the range of potential loss that may result from this violation. It is possible that the Company may be subject to civil or criminal proceedings and may be required to pay judgments, suffer penalties or incur settlements in amounts that may have a material adverse effect on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

ERISA Partial Withdrawal Liability Assessment and Demand

        On June 8, 2007, SimplexGrinnell received a notice alleging that it had partially withdrawn from the National Automatic Sprinkler Industry Pension Fund (the "Fund"). Under Title IV of ERISA, if the Fund can prove that an employer completely or partially withdraws from a multi-employer pension plan such as the Fund, the employer is liable for withdrawal liability equal to its proportionate share of the plan's unfunded vested benefits. The alleged withdrawal results from a 1994 labor dispute between Grinnell Fire Protection Systems, SimplexGrinnell's predecessor, and Road Sprinkler Fitters Local Union No. 669.

        ERISA requires that payment of withdrawal liability be made in full or in quarterly installments commencing upon receipt of a liability assessment from the plan. A plan's assessment of withdrawal liability generally may be challenged only in arbitration, and ERISA requires that quarterly payments must continue to be made during the pendency of the arbitration. If the employer prevails in arbitration (and any subsequent appeals), its quarterly withdrawal liability payments are refunded with interest. The Fund's total withdrawal liability assessment against SimplexGrinnell is approximately $25 million. The quarterly withdrawal liability payments are $1.1 million, $15.4 million of which has been cumulatively paid through December 24, 2010. While the ultimate outcome is uncertain, SimplexGrinnell believes that it has strong arguments that no withdrawal liability is owed to the Fund, and it plans to vigorously defend against the Fund's withdrawal liability assessment. The matter is currently in arbitration. The Company has made no provision for this contingency and believes that its quarterly payments are recoverable.

Broadview Security Contingency

        On May 14, 2010, the Company acquired Broadview Security, which is a business that was formerly owned by The Brink's Company. Under the Coal Industry Retiree Health Benefit Act of 1992, as amended (the "Coal Act"), The Brink's Company and its majority-owned subsidiaries at July 20, 1992

10.    Commitments and Contingencies (Continued)


(including certain legal entities acquired in the Broadview Security acquisition) are jointly and severally liable with certain of The Brink's Company's other current and former subsidiaries for health care coverage obligations provided for by the Coal Act. A Voluntary Employees' Beneficiary Associate ("VEBA") trust has been established by The Brink's Company to pay for these liabilities, although the trust may have insufficient funds to satisfy all future obligations. At the time of its spin-off from The Brink's Company, Broadview Security entered into an agreement in which The Brink's Company agreed to indemnify it for any and all liabilities and expenses related to The Brink's Company's former coal operations, including any health care coverage obligations. The Brink's Company has agreed that this indemnification survives the Company's acquisition of Broadview Security. The Company has evaluated its potential liability under the Coal Act as a contingency in light of all known facts, including the funding of the VEBA, and indemnification provided by The Brinks Company. The Company has concluded that no accrual is necessary due to the existence of the indemnification and its belief that The Brink's Company and VEBA will be able to satisfy all future obligations under the Coal Act.

Other Matters

        As previously reported, in 2002, the SEC's Division of Enforcement conducted an investigation related to past accounting practices for dealer connect fees that ADT had charged to its authorized dealers upon purchasing customer accounts. The investigation related to accounting practices employed by the Company's former management, which were discontinued in 2003. Although the Company settled with the SEC in 2006, a number of former dealers and related parties have filed lawsuits against the Company, including a class action lawsuit filed in the District Court of Arapahoe County, Colorado, alleging breach of contract and other claims related to ADT's decision to terminate certain authorized dealers in 2002 and 2003. In February 2010, the Court granted a directed verdict in ADT's favor dismissing a number of the plaintiffs' key claims. The plaintiffs have appealed this verdict. While it is not possible at this time to predict the final outcome of these lawsuits, the Company does not believe these claims will have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

        In addition to the foregoing, the Company is subject to claims and suits, including from time to time, contractual disputes and product and general liability claims, incidental to present and former operations, acquisitions and dispositions. With respect to many of these claims, the Company either self-insures or maintains insurance through third-parties, with varying deductibles. While the ultimate outcome of these matters cannot be predicted with certainty, the Company believes that the resolution of any such proceedings, whether the underlying claims are covered by insurance or not, will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations or cash flows beyond amounts recorded for such matters.

        Income Tax Matter—See Note 5 for a more detailed discussion of the status of the Company's outstanding income tax audits.

        The estimated net actuarial loss and prior service cost for U.S. pension benefit plans that will be amortized from accumulated other comprehensive loss into net periodic benefit cost over the current fiscal year are expected to be $10 million and nil, respectively.

        The estimated net actuarial loss and prior service cost for non-U.S. pension benefit plans that will be amortized from accumulated other comprehensive loss into net periodic benefit cost over the current fiscal year are expected to be $12 million and nil, respectively.

        The Company's funding policy is to make contributions in accordance with the laws and customs of the various countries in which it operates and to make discretionary voluntary contributions from time-to-time. The Company anticipates that it will contribute at least the minimum required to its pension plans in fiscal year 2011 of $12 million for U.S. plans and $52 million for non-U.S. plans. The Company also anticipates making voluntary contributions of approximately $20 million to its U.S. plans during 2011. During the quarter ended December 24, 2010 the Company contributed $2 million to its U.S. pension plans and $14 million to its non-U.S. pension plans, respectively.

        Postretirement Benefit Plans—Net periodic postretirement benefit cost was insignificant for both periods.

12.    Shareholders' Equity

Dividends

        Pursuant to Swiss law, dividend payments made prior to January 1, 2011 are subject to Swiss withholding taxes unless made in the form of a return of capital from the Company's registered share capital. As a result, the Company will pay dividends in the form of a reduction of registered share capital until at least February 2011. Beginning in May 2011, the Company expects to make dividend payments from contributed surplus, in U.S. dollars which are also expected to be made free of Swiss withholding taxes.

12.    Shareholders' Equity (Continued)

Share Repurchase Program

        The Company's Board of Directors approved the $1.0 billion 2010 share repurchase program and the $1.0 billion 2008 share repurchase program, in September 2010 and July 2008, respectively. During the quarter ended December 24, 2010, the Company repurchased approximately 13 million shares for approximately $500 million under the 2008 and 2010 share repurchase programs, which reduced the amount of common shares outstanding and decreased the dividends declared on the Consolidated Statement of Shareholder's Equity as of December 24, 2010.

13.    Share Plans

        During the quarter ended December 24, 2010, the Company issued its annual share-based compensation grants. The total number of awards issued was approximately 6 million, of which 4 million were share options, 1 million were restricted unit awards and 1 million were performance share unit awards. The options and restricted stock units vest in equal annual installments over a period of 4 years, and the performance share unit awards vest after a period of 3 years based on the level of attainment of the applicable performance metrics, which are determined by the Compensation and Human Resources Committee of the Board. The weighted-average grant-date fair value of the share options, restricted unit awards and performance share unit awards was $9.13, $37.29 and $41.17, respectively. The weighted-average assumptions used in the Black-Scholes option pricing model included an expected stock price volatility of 33%, a risk free interest rate of 1.26%, an expected annual dividend per share of $0.84 and an expected option life of 5.2 years.

        During the quarter ended December 25, 2009, the Company issued its annual share-based compensation grants. The total number of awards issued was approximately 6 million, of which 4 million were share options, 1 million were restricted unit awards and 1 million were performance share unit awards. The options and restricted stock units vest in equal annual installments over a period of 4 years, and the performance share unit awards vest after a period of 3 years based on the level of attainment of the applicable performance metrics, which are determined by the Compensation and Human Resources Committee of the Board. The weighted-average grant-date fair value of the share options, restricted unit awards and performance share unit awards was $9.17, $33.75 and $40.19, respectively. The weighted-average assumptions used in the Black-Scholes option pricing model included an expected stock price volatility of 34%, a risk free interest rate of 2.47%, an expected annual dividend per share of $0.80 and an expected option life of 5.4 years.

15.    Consolidated Segment Data

        The Company, from time to time, may realign businesses and management responsibility within its operating segments based on considerations such as opportunity for market or operating synergies and/or to more fully leverage existing capabilities and enhance development for future products and services.

        During the first quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company realigned its Safety Products segment between its ADT Worldwide and Fire Protection segments to create two new segments: Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection. Tyco Security Solutions consists of the former ADT Worldwide segment as well as the portion of the former Safety Products segment that manufactures security products including intrusion, security, access control and video management systems. Tyco Fire Protection consists of the former Fire Protection Services segment as well as a number of businesses from the former Safety Products segment including the fire suppression and life safety products businesses. In addition, various businesses were realigned between Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection.

15.    Consolidated Segment Data (Continued)

        As a result of this realignment, as well as the sale of a majority interest in the Electrical and Metal Products business (See Note 2), the Company has three core businesses: Tyco Security Solutions, Tyco Fire Protection and Tyco Flow Control.

        As a result of the realignment of these business activities and the reclassification of businesses that have been classified as discontinued operations, the revenue and operating income for the quarter ending December 25, 2009 have been recast.

18.    Guarantees

        Certain of the Company's business segments have guaranteed the performance of third-parties and provided financial guarantees for uncompleted work and financial commitments. The terms of these guarantees vary with end dates ranging from the current fiscal year through the completion of such transactions. The guarantees would typically be triggered in the event of nonperformance and performance under the guarantees, if required, would not have a material effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

        There are certain guarantees or indemnifications extended among Tyco, Covidien and Tyco Electronics in accordance with the terms of the Separation and Distribution Agreement and the Tax Sharing Agreement. The guarantees primarily relate to certain contingent tax liabilities included in the Tax Sharing Agreement. At the time of the Separation, Tyco recorded a liability necessary to recognize the fair value of such guarantees and indemnifications. In the absence of observable transactions for identical or similar guarantees, the Company determined the fair value of these guarantees and

34


Table of Contents


TYCO INTERNATIONAL LTD.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED) (Continued)

18.    Guarantees (Continued)


indemnifications utilizing expected present value measurement techniques. Significant assumptions utilized to determine fair value included determining a range of potential outcomes, assigning a probability weighting to each potential outcome and estimating the anticipated timing of resolution. The probability weighted outcomes were discounted using the Company's incremental borrowing rate. The liability necessary to reflect the fair value of guarantees and indemnifications under the Tax Sharing agreement was $554 million (of which $180 million and $156 million are included in accrued and other current liabilities and the remaining amounts in other liabilities as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, respectively), on the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets as of both December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010. During the first quarter of 2011 the Company reclassified $24 million from other liabilities to accrued and other current liabilities as it expects to make a payment within the next twelve months to Covidien and Tyco Electronics related to the resolution of certain IRS audit matters. The guarantees primarily relate to certain contingent tax liabilities included in the Tax Sharing Agreement. See Note 5.

        In addition, Tyco historically provided support in the form of financial and/or performance guarantees to various Covidien and Tyco Electronics operating entities. In connection with the Separation, the Company worked with the guarantee counterparties to cancel or assign these guarantees to Covidien or Tyco Electronics. To the extent these guarantees were not assigned prior to the Separation date, Tyco assumed primary liability on any remaining such support. The Company's obligations were $4 million, which were included in other liabilities on the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets as of December 24, 2010 and September 24, 2010, respectively, with an offset to shareholders' equity on the Separation date.

        In disposing of assets or businesses, the Company often provides representations, warranties and/or indemnities to cover various risks including, for example, unknown damage to the assets, environmental risks involved in the sale of real estate, liability to investigate and remediate environmental contamination at waste disposal sites and manufacturing facilities and unidentified tax liabilities and legal fees related to periods prior to disposition. The Company has no reason to believe that these uncertainties would have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows. The Company has recorded liabilities for known indemnifications included as part of environmental liabilities. See Note 10.

        In the normal course of business, the Company is liable for contract completion and product performance. In the opinion of management, such obligations will not significantly affect the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

        The Company records estimated product warranty costs at the time of sale. The changes in the carrying amount of the Company's warranty accrual from September 24, 2010 to December 24, 2010 were as follows ($ in millions):

Item 2.    Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Results of Operations

        The following discussion and analysis of the Company's financial condition and results of operations should be read together with our Consolidated Financial Statements and the related notes included in this Quarterly Report. The Company does not believe that its historical operating results will be indicative of future operating results. This discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. The Company's actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including but not limited to those under the headings "Risk Factors" and "Forward-Looking Information."

Introduction

        The unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements include the consolidated results of Tyco International Ltd., a company organized under the laws of Switzerland, and its subsidiaries (hereinafter collectively referred to as "we," the "Company" or "Tyco"). The financial statements have been prepared in United States dollars ("USD"), in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP").

        During the first quarter of fiscal 2011, we realigned our Safety Products segment between our ADT Worldwide and Fire Protection segments to create two new segments: Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection. Tyco Security Solutions consists of the former ADT Worldwide segment as well as the portion of the former Safety Products segment that manufactures security products including intrusion, security, access control and video management systems. Tyco Fire Protection consists of the former Fire Protection Services segment as well as a number of businesses from the former Safety Products segment including the fire suppression and life safety products businesses. In addition, various businesses were realigned between Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection.

        As a result of this realignment, as well as the sale of a majority interest in our Electrical and Metal Products business further described below, we have three core businesses: Tyco Security Solutions, Tyco Fire Protection and Tyco Flow Control. See Note 15 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

        As noted below, we sold a majority interest in our Electrical and Metal Products business on December 22, 2010. During the first fiscal quarter of 2011, we operated in the following business segments:

    Tyco Security Solutions designs, sells, installs, services and monitors electronic security systems for residential, commercial, industrial and governmental customers. In addition, Tyco Security Solutions designs, manufactures and sells security products including intrusion, security, access control and video management systems.

    Tyco Flow Control designs, manufactures, sells and services valves, pipes, fittings, valve automation and heat tracing products for general process, energy and mining markets as well as the water and wastewater markets.

    Tyco Fire Protection designs, manufactures, sells, installs and services fire detection and fire suppression systems and building and life safety products for commercial, industrial and governmental customers.

    Electrical and Metal Products designs, manufactures and sells galvanized steel tubing, armored wire and cable and other metal products for non-residential construction, electrical, fire and safety and mechanical customers.

Table of Contents

        We also provide general corporate services to our segments and these costs are reported as Corporate and Other.

        On November 9, 2010, we announced that we entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") to sell a majority interest in our Electrical and Metal Products business to an affiliate of the private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, LLC (the "Investor"). We formed a newly incorporated holding company, Atkore International Group Inc. ("Atkore"), to hold our Electrical and Metal Products business. On December 22, 2010, the transaction closed and the Investor acquired shares of a newly-created class of cumulative convertible preferred stock of Atkore (the "Preferred Stock") to the Investor. The Preferred Stock initially represented 51% of the outstanding capital stock (on an as-converted basis) of Atkore. In connection with the closing, we received cash proceeds of approximately $713 million and recorded a gain of $259 million, subject to settlement of the final working capital adjustment, (including a $49 million gain recognized in connection with determining the fair value of the Company's retained ownership interest) which is recorded within restructuring, asset impairment and divestiture charges (gain), net in our Consolidated Statement of Operations for the quarter ended December 24, 2010.

        Additionally, during the third quarter of fiscal 2010, our Board of Directors approved a plan to sell our European water business, which was part of our Tyco Flow Control segment. The business met the held for sale and discontinued operations criteria and has been included in discontinued operations for all periods presented. On September 30, 2010, we completed the sale of this business and received net cash proceeds of approximately $264 million, net of $7 million of cash divested on sale, and we recorded a pre-tax gain of $173 million, which was largely exempt from tax. The gain was recorded in income from discontinued operations, net of income taxes in the Company's Consolidated Statement of Operations.

        References to the segment data are to the Company's continuing operations. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. Specifically, we have reclassified certain businesses which have satisfied the criteria to be presented as discontinued operations in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and assets and liabilities held for sale within the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Additionally, as discussed above, the Company realigned certain business operations during the quarter ended December 24, 2010 and accordingly has recast prior period segment amounts. See Notes 2 and 15, respectively, to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

Overview

        Net revenue of $4,379 million increased $224 million, or 5.4%, for the quarter ended December 24, 2010 as compared to the quarter ended December 25, 2009. The increase was primarily driven by our Tyco Security Solutions segment, reflecting growth in customer accounts primarily related to the Broadview Security acquisition, partially offset by divested revenues primarily related to the sale of our French security business. Our Electrical and Metal Products business also contributed to the increase due to higher selling prices realized for steel products. Net revenues in our Tyco Fire Protection segment were down slightly due to a decline in our Fire Protection Services business, partially offset by strength in both our Fire Protection Products business and our Life Safety business. Our Tyco Flow Control segment also experienced a slight decline in net revenues due to a decline in our Valves and Controls business partially offset by increases in our Water and Environmental Systems and Thermal Controls businesses.

        Service revenue, which is primarily recurring in nature, represented approximately 43% and 41% of our overall revenue for the quarters ended December 24, 2010 and December 25, 2009, respectively. Service revenues are principally derived from our Tyco Security Solutions and Tyco Fire Protection businesses, and represent a consistent source of revenue from monitoring and maintenance services under contractual agreements. Recurring revenue in our Tyco Security Solutions business grew to

Table of Contents


approximately 57% of Tyco Security Solutions' total revenue compared to approximately 54% in 2010, primarily due to the Broadview Security acquisition. In the Tyco Fire Protection business, service revenue increased approximately 1% to approximately 39%. Non-service revenue, which is primarily product and installation revenue, improved slightly compared to the prior year, as strength in the Tyco Security Products business of Tyco Security Solutions and the Life Safety and Fire Protection Products businesses of Tyco Fire Protection was offset by continued revenue declines in the Tyco Flow Control and the Fire Protection Services business of Tyco Fire Protection.

        Operating income for the quarter ended December 24, 2010 was $706 million compared to operating income of $405 million for the quarter December 25, 2009. The increase in operating income of $301 million reflects strong growth in our Tyco Security Solutions business and, a net gain of $259 million, subject to the settlement of the final working capital adjustment, related to the sale of a majority interest in our Electrical and Metals business, partially offset by restructuring charges and losses on other divestitures of $32 million and $13 million, respectively, during the quarter ended December 24, 2010 compared to $11 million and $1 million of restructuring and divestiture charges, respectively, recorded during the quarter ended December 25, 2009.

        As of December 24, 2010, our cash balance was $2.1 billion, as compared to $1.8 billion as of September 24, 2010. We generated approximately $246 million and $389 million of cash from operating and investing activities, respectively, and utilized $345 million of cash in financing activities. During the quarter ended December 24, 2010, $1.0 billion of cash was generated from divestitures, primarily related to $713 million for the sale of the majority interest in our Electrical and Metal Products business and $264 million for the sale of our European water business, which was presented in net cash provided by (used in) discontinued investing activities in our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows. During the quarter ended December 24, 2010, uses of cash primarily included $500 million to repurchase our common shares, $179 million of capital expenditures, $133 million to purchase customer contracts in our Tyco Security Solutions business and $113 million to pay cash dividends. We expect to continue to use our cash to fund internal growth opportunities, improve productivity across all of our businesses, make acquisitions that strategically fit within our businesses and return capital to shareholders.

        We have made significant progress in refining our portfolio of businesses. In 2011, we expect to continue our portfolio refinement efforts and may exit areas that have not provided, and are not expected to provide, an adequate return on investment. We will also take advantage of restructuring opportunities that are expected to provide future cost savings. We expect to incur total restructuring and restructuring related charges of approximately $200 million in fiscal 2011, and incurred $32 million of restructuring charges during the quarter ended December 24, 2010.

        Revenue from product sales, which is considered non-recurring in nature, includes sales and installation of electronic security and other life safety systems as well as products related to retailer anti-theft systems. Service revenue is comprised of electronic security services and maintenance, including the monitoring of burglar alarms, fire alarms and other life safety systems as well as other security services. Service revenue is further comprised of recurring revenue and non-recurring revenue. Recurring revenue is generated from contractual monitoring and maintenance agreements that are long term in nature. Net revenue generated from rendering services including but not limited to armored guards, one time repair or inspection jobs is considered non-recurring revenue.

Recurring Net Revenue

        Recurring net revenue is primarily driven by the addition or loss of customer accounts and average revenue per customer.

Attrition rates and the number of customer accounts for the quarter ended December 25, 2009, have been recast to reflect the divestiture of our French security business, which resulted in reductions of 0.1 million and 0.1%, respectively, in the amounts previously reported for December 25, 2009.

        Approximately 57% and 54% of Tyco Security Solutions' total net revenue for the quarters ended December 24, 2010 and December 25, 2009, respectively, represents recurring net revenue. Recurring net revenue increased by $168 million, or 16.2%, to approximately $1.2 billion as a result of growth of customer accounts of approximately 1.5 million, or 20.3%, to a total of 8.9 million accounts as of December 24, 2010. Approximately 1.4 million customer accounts were acquired on May 14, 2010 in connection with the Broadview Security acquisition and approximately 121,000 customer accounts were acquired through the ADT dealer program during the quarter ended December 24, 2010. The average revenue per customer decreased by $0.79, or 1.7%, quarter over quarter primarily due to the acquisition of Broadview Security, as Broadview Security's customer base was predominantly residential. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates favorably impacted recurring net revenue by $6 million, or 0.6%.

Non-Recurring Net Revenue

        Approximately 43% and 46% of Tyco Security Solutions' total net revenue for the quarters ended December 24, 2010 and December 25, 2009, respectively, was non-recurring in nature. Non-recurring net revenue increased by $25 million, or 2.8%, to $905 million primarily due to an increase in product sales of $28 million partially offset by a decline in other non-recurring revenue of $3 million. Product sales primarily increased as a result of strength in the commercial end markets for the first time in over a year.

Tyco Security Products is managed as a global business.

        North America consists of residential and small business, primarily a recurring revenue business, and commercial, primarily a non-recurring revenue business. Residential and small business net revenue increased by 30.2%, as compared to the quarter ended December 25, 2009 primarily as the result of growth of customer accounts of approximately 1.5 million, or 27.2%, to a total of 6.8 million accounts as of December 24, 2010. Approximately 1.4 million customer accounts were acquired on May 14, 2010 in connection with the Broadview Security acquisition and approximately 121,000 customer accounts were acquired through the ADT dealer program during the quarter ended December 24, 2010. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates favorably impacted residential and small business revenue by $2 million, or 0.3%. Commercial net revenue increased by 7.8% primarily as a result of strength in the commercial end markets. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates favorably impacted commercial net revenue by $3 million, or 0.7%.

        Net revenue in EMEA decreased by $56 million, or 11.5%, as compared to the quarter ended December 25, 2009 due to divested revenue of $62 million primarily related to our French security business. Revenue also decreased in the United Kingdom and Continental Europe as a result of adhering to operating margin requirements for new projects. In addition, changes in foreign currency exchange rates unfavorably impacted net revenue by $12 million, or 2.4%. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in revenue from South Africa as management continues to focus on expanding its customer account and recurring revenue in this market.

        Net revenue in ROW increased by $26 million, or 8.8%, as compared to the quarter ended December 25, 2009 due to an increase in revenues from emerging markets including Asia Pacific of $15 million and $11 million in Latin America as management continues to focus on expanding its customer account and recurring revenue in these markets. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates favorably impacted net revenue by $9 million, or 3.1%.

        Net revenue in Tyco Security Products increased by $17 million, or 21.5%, as compared to the quarter ended December 25, 2009 primarily due to continued growth in non-recurring revenues. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates also favorably impacted net revenue by $3 million or 3.8%.

Operating income

        Operating income of $347 million increased $79 million, or 29.5%, in the quarter ended December 24, 2010 as compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in operating income is partially due to the result of higher sales volume, margin improvements, efficiencies gained through restructuring actions taken in the prior year and other cost containment activities and the acquisition of Broadview Security. During the quarter ended December 24, 2010 we had a net restructuring credit of $1 million, which was offset by a loss on divestitures of $1 million. We incurred restructuring charges of $5 million during the quarter ended December 25, 2009. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates favorably impacted operating income by $2 million, or 0.7%.

Net revenue

  $ 826   $ 832     (0.7 )%
                 

        Net revenue for Tyco Flow Control of $826 million decreased $6 million, or 0.7%, during the quarter ended December 24, 2010 compared to the quarter ended December 25, 2009. The decrease was primarily due to a decline in our Valves and Controls business of 6.5% driven by continued weakness in our end markets. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates as it relates to Valves and Controls unfavorably impacted net revenues by $4 million. The decrease was partially offset by increases in both our Water & Environmental Systems and Thermal Controls businesses of 8.1% and 6.7%, respectively. The increase in net revenue in our Water & Environmental Systems business was primarily driven by a large desalinization project in Australia that commenced during the second quarter of fiscal 2010, which is nearing completion. Additionally, changes in foreign currency rates favorably impacted net revenue in Water and Environmental Systems by $13 million. Partially offsetting these increases was the absence of project work in the Pacific region. Strength in product sales and increased project activity, particularly in North America, resulted in an increase in the net revenue of our Thermal Controls business. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates as it relates to Thermal Controls unfavorably impacted net revenues by $2 million.

The movements are primarily a result of a decrease in restructuring charges of $6 million during the quarter ended December 24, 2010 as compared to prior year period, which were entirely offset by decreased sales volume and a loss provision related to a long-term construction project of approximately $5 million. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates favorably impacted operating income by $1 million, or 1.0%.

In addition, net revenue in our Fire Protection Services business decreased by $18 million, or 2.2%, due to the deconsolidation of a joint venture as a result of adopting a new accounting standard during the quarter.
