Rockwell Automation Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results

Tax - On a GAAP basis, the effective tax rate in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was 18.7 percent compared to 21.1 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. The lower effective tax rate in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was primarily related to the tax effects on the PTC adjustments and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the “Tax Act”), partially offset by lower discrete tax items compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2018. The Adjusted Effective Tax Rate for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was 17.3 percent compared to 18.7 percent in the prior year. The lower Adjusted Effective Tax Rate in 2019 is primarily related to the Tax Act.

Share Repurchases - During the third quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company repurchased 1.5 million shares of its common stock at a cost of $246.3 million. At June 30, 2019, $333.3 million remained available under the September 6, 2018 share repurchase authorization. Yesterday, the Board of Directors authorized the Company to deploy an additional $1.0 billion to repurchase shares of its common stock.

Non-GAAP Measures - Organic sales, total segment operating earnings, total segment operating margin, Adjusted Income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Effective Tax Rate, free cash flow, and return on invested capital are non-GAAP measures that are reconciled to GAAP measures in the attachments to this release.
