Note 1. Basis of Presentation
 
In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial position of Honeywell International Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries (“Honeywell” or “the Company”) at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019 and the results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 should not necessarily be taken as indicative of the entire year.
 
Honeywell reports its quarterly financial information using a calendar convention; the first, second and third quarters are consistently reported as ending on March 31, June 30 and September 30. It has been Honeywell's practice to establish actual quarterly closing dates using a predetermined fiscal calendar, which requires Honeywell's businesses to close their books on a Saturday in order to minimize the potentially disruptive effects of quarterly closing on our business processes. The effects of this practice are generally not significant to reported results for any quarter and only exist within a reporting year. In the event that differences in actual closing dates are material to year-over-year comparisons of quarterly or year-to-date results, Honeywell will provide appropriate disclosures. Honeywell's actual closing dates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019 were September 26, 2020 and September 28, 2019. 

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
The accounting policies of the Company are set forth in Note 1 to the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements contained in the Company’s 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The Company includes herein certain updates to those policies.

Reclassifications—Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements—The Company considers the applicability and impact of all Accounting Standards Updates (ASUs) issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). ASUs not listed below were assessed and determined to be either not applicable or are expected to have minimal impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows (Consolidated Financial Statements).

In December 2019, the FASB issued an accounting standard update to simplify the accounting for income taxes. The standard's amendments include changes in various subtopics of accounting for income taxes including, but not limited to, accounting for "hybrid" tax regimes, tax basis step-up in goodwill obtained in a transaction that is not a business combination, intraperiod tax allocation exception to incremental approach, ownership changes in investments, interim-period accounting for enacted changes in tax law, and year-to-date loss limitation in interim-period tax accounting. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020 with early adoption permitted, including the interim periods within those years. The Company is currently evaluating impacts of these amendments on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements, and related notes to the Financial Statements. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.
    
In June 2016, the FASB issued an accounting standard that requires companies to utilize an impairment model (current expected credit loss, or CECL) for most financial assets measured at amortized cost and certain other financial instruments, which include, but are not limited to, trade and other receivables. This accounting standard replaced the incurred loss model with a model that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to estimate those losses. Effective January 1, 2020, the Company adopted this standard. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.

In the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recognized gross repositioning charges totaling $135 million including severance costs of $113 million related to workforce reductions of 3,113 manufacturing and administrative positions across all of the Company's segments, with a majority of the workforce reductions in Aerospace and Performance Materials and Technologies. The workforce reductions primarily related to the Company aligning its cost structure with the current slowdown in demand for many of the Company's products and services due to the global recession.

In the three months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recognized gross repositioning charges totaling $89 million including severance costs of $41 million related to workforce reductions of 1,123 manufacturing and administrative positions across the Company's segments. The workforce reductions primarily related to cost savings actions taken in connection with our productivity and ongoing functional transformation initiatives. The repositioning charges included exit costs of $33 million primarily related to termination fees associated with the early cancellation of supply agreements for certain raw materials in Performance Materials and Technologies and Honeywell Building Technologies and current period exit costs incurred for previously approved repositioning projects.

In the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recognized gross repositioning charges totaling $491 million including severance costs of $433 million related to workforce reductions of 13,042 manufacturing and administrative positions across the Company's segments, with a majority of the workforce reductions in Aerospace and Performance Materials and Technologies. The workforce reductions primarily related to the Company aligning its cost structure with the current slowdown in demand for many of the Company's products and services due to the global recession, and the Company's productivity and ongoing functional transformation initiatives. The repositioning charges included exit costs of $47 million primarily related to current period exit costs incurred for previously approved repositioning projects. Also, $42 million of previously established reserves, primarily for severance, were returned to income mainly as a result of higher attrition than anticipated in prior severance actions resulting in lower severance payments.

In the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recognized gross repositioning charges totaling $235 million including severance costs of $147 million related to workforce reductions of 3,436 manufacturing and administrative positions across the Company's segments. The workforce reductions primarily related to cost savings actions taken in connection with the Company's productivity and functional transformation initiatives and to site transitions in Aerospace to more cost-effective locations. The repositioning charges included exit costs of $62 million primarily related to current period exit costs incurred for previously approved repositioning projects, termination fees associated with the early cancellation of supply agreements for certain raw materials in Performance Materials and Technologies and Honeywell Building Technologies and closure obligations associated with site transitions.

The following table summarizes the status of the Company's total repositioning reserves:

Note 5. Income Taxes
 
The effective tax rate was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% and decreased during 2020 compared to 2019 primarily due to the favorable resolution of a foreign tax matter related to the previously completed spin-off transactions, tax law changes in India, and the resolution of certain U.S. tax matters offset by a non-cash charge related to the reduction of the aggregate carrying value of certain receivables with no corresponding tax benefit.

Contract Balances
 
The Company records progress on satisfying performance obligations to customers, and the related billings and cash collections, on the Consolidated Balance Sheet in Accounts receivable - net and Other assets (unbilled receivables (contract assets) and billed receivables) and Accrued liabilities and Other liabilities (customer advances and deposits (contract liabilities)). Unbilled receivables (contract assets) arise when the timing of cash collected from customers differs from the timing of revenue recognition, such as when contract provisions require specific milestones to be met before a customer can be billed. Unbilled receivable balance increases when the revenue associated with the contract is recognized prior to billing and decreases when billed in accordance with the terms of the contract. Contract liabilities increases when customers remit contractual cash payments in advance of the Company satisfying performance obligations under contractual arrangements, including those with performance obligations to be satisfied over a period of time. Contract liabilities decreases when revenue is recorded, either when a milestone is met triggering the contractual right to bill or when the performance obligation is satisfied.
 
Contract balances are classified as assets or liabilities on a contract-by-contract basis at the end of each reporting period.
 
The following table summarizes the Company's contract assets and liabilities balances: 
 20202019
Contract assets - January 1$1,602 $1,548 
Contract assets - September 301,819 1,812 
Change in contract assets - increase (decrease)$217 $264 
 
Contract liabilities - January 1$(3,501)$(3,378)
Contract liabilities - September 30(3,666)(3,188)
Change in contract liabilities - decrease (increase)$(165)$190 
 
Net change$52 $454 
 
The net change for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019 was primarily driven by the recognition of revenue associated with respective contracts prior to billing.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recognized revenue of $351 million and $1,554 million that was previously included in the beginning balance of contract liabilities. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recognized revenue of $215 million and $1,195 million that was previously included in the beginning balance of contract liabilities.
 
When contracts are modified to account for changes in contract specifications and requirements, the Company considers whether the modification either creates new or changes the existing enforceable rights and obligations. Contract modifications that are for goods or services that are not distinct from the existing contract, due to the significant integration with the original good or service provided, are accounted for as if they were part of that existing contract. The effect of a contract modification on the transaction price and the Company's measure of progress for the performance obligation to which it relates, is recognized as an adjustment to revenue (either as an increase in or a reduction of revenue) on a cumulative catch-up basis. When the modifications include additional performance obligations that are distinct and at relative stand-alone selling price, they are accounted for as a new contract and performance obligation, which are recognized prospectively.

Performance Obligations
 
A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to the customer, and is defined as the unit of account. A contract’s transaction price is allocated to each distinct performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, the performance obligation is satisfied. When the Company's contracts with customers require highly complex integration or manufacturing services that are not separately identifiable from other promises in the contracts and, therefore, not distinct, then the entire contract is accounted for as a single performance obligation. In situations when the Company's contract includes distinct goods or services that are substantially the same and have the same pattern of transfer to the customer over time, they are recognized as a series of distinct goods or services. For any contracts with multiple performance obligations, the Company allocates the contract’s transaction price to each performance obligation based on the estimated relative standalone selling price of each distinct good or service in the contract. For product sales, each product sold to a customer typically represents a distinct performance obligation. In such cases, the observable standalone sales are used to determine the standalone selling price.
 
Performance obligations are satisfied as of a point in time or over time. Performance obligations are supported by contracts with customers, providing a framework for the nature of the distinct goods, services or bundle of goods and services. The timing of satisfying the performance obligation is typically indicated by the terms of the contract.

The following table outlines the Company's remaining performance obligations disaggregated by segment: 
 September 30, 2020
Aerospace$9,717 
Honeywell Building Technologies5,537 
Performance Materials and Technologies6,532 
Safety and Productivity Solutions3,858 
 $25,644 
 
Performance obligations recognized as of September 30, 2020 will be satisfied over the course of future periods. The Company's disclosure of the timing for satisfying the performance obligation is based on the requirements of contracts with customers. However, from time to time, these contracts may be subject to modifications, impacting the timing of satisfying the performance obligations. Performance obligations expected to be satisfied within one year and greater than one year are 54% and 46%, respectively.
 
The timing of satisfaction of the Company's performance obligations does not significantly vary from the typical timing of payment. Typical payment terms of the Company's fixed-price over time contracts include progress payments based on specified events or milestones, or based on project progress. For some contracts we may be entitled to receive an advance payment.
 
The Company has applied the practical expedient for certain revenue streams to exclude the value of remaining performance obligations for (i) contracts with an original expected term of one year or less or (ii) contracts for which we recognize revenue in proportion to the amount we have the right to invoice for services performed.

During the third quarter of 2020, the Company changed the method of valuing inventory from the last-in, first-out (LIFO) method to the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method for inventories within our Performance Materials and Technologies segment not previously valued using FIFO. The Company believes the FIFO method is preferable and better reflects the current value of inventory reported in the Consolidated Balance Sheet. The cumulative effect of this change in accounting principle was $7 million and was recorded as a reduction to Cost of products sold for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The inventories subject to this change totaled approximately 6 percent of consolidated inventories. This change was not material to the Consolidated Financial Statements, therefore prior periods were not adjusted retrospectively.

Interest rate swap agreements are designated as hedge relationships with gains or losses on the derivative recognized in Interest and other financial charges offsetting the gains and losses on the underlying debt being hedged. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, we recognized $13 million of expense and $206 million of gains in earnings on interest rate swap agreements. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recognized $55 million and $118 million of gains in earnings on interest rate swap agreements. Gains and losses are fully offset by losses and gains on the underlying debt being hedged.
 
The Company economically hedges its exposure to changes in foreign exchange rates principally with forward contracts. These contracts are marked-to-market with the resulting gains and losses recognized in earnings offsetting the gains and losses on the non-functional currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities being hedged. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, we recognized $136 million and $69 million of expense in Other (income) expense. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recognized $182 million and $231 million of income in Other (income) expense. As of September 30, 2020, cash collateral received that has not been offset against our derivatives of $323 million was recorded in Accrued liabilities and Other assets.

The Company does not currently possess sufficient information to reasonably estimate the amounts of environmental liabilities to be recorded upon future completion of studies, litigation or settlements, and neither the timing nor the amount of the ultimate costs associated with environmental matters can be determined although they could be material to our consolidated results of operations and operating cash flows in the periods recognized or paid. However, considering our past experience and existing reserves, the Company does not expect that environmental matters will have a material adverse effect on its consolidated financial position.

In conjunction with the Resideo Technologies, Inc. (Resideo) spin-off, the Company entered into an indemnification and reimbursement agreement with a Resideo subsidiary, pursuant to which Resideo’s subsidiary has an ongoing obligation to make cash payments to Honeywell in amounts equal to 90 percent of Honeywell’s annual net spending for environmental matters at certain sites as defined in the agreement. The amount payable to Honeywell in any given year is subject to a cap of $140 million, and the obligation will continue until the earlier of December 31, 2043, or December 31 of the third consecutive year during which the annual payment obligation is less than $25 million.

Reimbursements associated with this agreement are collected from Resideo quarterly and were $70 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2020. On July 28, 2020, the Company and Resideo agreed to a second amendment of the indemnification and reimbursement agreement to extend the payment due date to October 30, 2020 for the reimbursement amount of $35 million (originally due on April 30, 2020). The Company had previously agreed to extend the payment date for such amount to July 30, 2020. As the Company incurs costs for environmental matters deemed probable and reasonably estimable related to the sites covered by the indemnification and reimbursement agreement, a corresponding receivable from Resideo for 90 percent of such costs is also recorded. This receivable amount recorded in the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $107 million. As of September 30, 2020, Other Current Assets and Other Assets include $140 million and $482 million, respectively for the short-term and long-term portion of the receivable amount due from Resideo under the indemnification and reimbursement agreement.

NARCO Products – Honeywell’s predecessor, Allied Corporation owned NARCO from 1979 to 1986. When the NARCO business was sold, Honeywell’s predecessor entered into a cross-indemnity agreement with NARCO which included an obligation to indemnify the purchaser for asbestos claims. Such claims arise primarily from alleged occupational exposure to asbestos-containing refractory brick and mortar for high-temperature applications. NARCO ceased manufacturing these products in 1980, and the first asbestos claims were filed in the tort system against NARCO in 1983. Claims filings and related costs increased dramatically in the late 1990s through 2001, which led to NARCO filing for bankruptcy in January 2002. Once NARCO filed for bankruptcy, all then current and future NARCO asbestos claims were stayed against both NARCO and Honeywell pending the reorganization of NARCO.
 
Following the bankruptcy filing, in December 2002 Honeywell recorded a total NARCO asbestos liability of $3.2 billion, which was comprised of three components: (i) the estimated liability to settle pre-bankruptcy petition NARCO claims and certain post-petition settlements ($2.2 billion, referred to as “Pre-bankruptcy NARCO Liability”), (ii) the estimated liability related to then unasserted NARCO claims for the period 2004 through 2018 ($950 million, referred to as “NARCO Trust Liability”), and (iii) other NARCO bankruptcy-related obligations totaling $73 million.
 
When the NARCO Trust Liability of $950 million was established in 2002, the methodology for estimating the potential liability was based primarily on: (a) epidemiological projections of the future incidence of disease for the period 2004 through 2018, a fifteen-year period; (b) historical claims rates in the tort system for the five-year period prior to the bankruptcy filing date; and (c) anticipated NARCO Trust payment values set forth in the then current draft of the NARCO Trust Distribution Procedures. The methodology required estimating, by disease, three critical inputs: (i) likely number of claims to be asserted against the NARCO Trust in the future, (ii) percentage of those claims likely to receive payment, and (iii) payment values. The Company utilized outside asbestos liability valuation specialists to support its preparation of the NARCO Trust Liability estimate, which was based on a commonly accepted methodology used by numerous bankruptcy courts addressing 524(g) trusts.

In 2002, when the Company first established its initial liability, NARCO asbestos claims resolution shifted from the tort system to an anticipated NARCO Trust framework, where claims would be processed in accordance with established NARCO Trust Distribution Procedures, including strict medical and exposure criteria for a plaintiff to receive compensation. The Company believed at the time that the NARCO Trust’s claims filing and resolution experience after the NARCO Trust became operational would be significantly different from pre-bankruptcy tort system experience in light of these more rigorous claims processing requirements in the NARCO Trust Distribution Procedures and Honeywell’s active oversight of claims processing and approval. Given these anticipated differences, the Company believed that a 15-year time period was the appropriate horizon for establishing a probable and reasonably estimable liability for then unasserted NARCO claims as it represented its best estimate of the time period it would take for the NARCO Trust to be approved by the Bankruptcy Court, become fully operational and generate sufficiently reliable claims data (i.e., a data set which is statistically representative) to enable the Company to update its NARCO Trust Liability.
 
The NARCO Trust Distribution Procedures were finalized in 2006, and the Company updated its NARCO Trust Liability to reflect the final terms and payment values. The original 15-year period (from 2004 through 2018) for unasserted claims did not change as asbestos claims filings continued to be stayed against both Honeywell and NARCO. The 2006 update resulted in a range of the estimated liability for unasserted claims of $743 million to $961 million, and the Company believed that no amount within this range was a better estimate than any other amount. In accordance with ASC 450 – Contingencies (ASC 450), the Company recorded the low end of the range of $743 million (the "2006 NARCO Trust Liability Estimate") which resulted in a reduction of $207 million in our NARCO Trust Liability.
 
NARCO emerged from bankruptcy on April 30, 2013, at which time a federally authorized 524(g) trust was established for the evaluation and resolution of all existing and future NARCO asbestos claims. Both Honeywell and NARCO are protected by a permanent channeling injunction barring all present and future individual actions in state or federal courts and requiring all asbestos-related claims based on exposure to NARCO asbestos-containing products to be made against the NARCO Trust.
 
The NARCO Trust Agreement and the NARCO Trust Distribution Procedures are the principal documents setting forth the structure of the NARCO Trust. These documents establish Honeywell’s evergreen funding obligations. Honeywell is obligated to fund NARCO asbestos claims submitted to the NARCO Trust which qualify for payment under the Trust Distribution Procedures (Annual Contribution Claims), subject to an annual cap of $145 million. However, the initial $100 million of claims processed through the NARCO Trust (the "Initial Claims Amount") will not count against the annual cap and any unused portion of the Initial Claims Amount will roll over to subsequent years until fully utilized. These documents also establish the material operating rules for the NARCO Trust, including Honeywell audit rights and the criteria claimants must meet to have a valid claim paid. These claims payment criteria include providing the NARCO Trust with adequate medical evidence of the claimant’s asbestos-related condition and credible evidence of exposure to a specific NARCO asbestos-containing product. Further, the NARCO Trust is eligible to receive cash dividends from Harbison-Walker International Inc (HWI), the reorganized and renamed entity that emerged, fully operational, from the NARCO bankruptcy. The NARCO Trust is required to use any funding received from HWI to pay Annual Contribution Claims until those funds are exhausted. It is only at this point that Honeywell’s funding obligation to the Trust is triggered. Thus, there is an unrelated primary source for funding that affects Honeywell’s funding of the NARCO Trust Liability.
 
Once operational, the NARCO Trust began to receive, process and pay claims that had been previously stayed pending the Trust becoming operational. As the NARCO Trust began to pay claims in 2014, the Company began to assert our on-going audit rights to review and monitor the claims processor’s adherence to the established requirements of the NARCO Trust Distribution Procedures. While doing so, the Company identified several issues with the way the Trust was implementing the NARCO Trust Distribution Procedures. In 2015, Honeywell filed suit against the NARCO Trust in Bankruptcy Court alleging breach of certain provisions of the NARCO Trust Agreement and NARCO Trust Distribution Procedures. The parties agreed to dismiss the proceeding without prejudice pursuant to an 18-month Standstill Agreement, which expired in October 2017. Notwithstanding its expiration, claims processing continues, and Honeywell continues to negotiate and attempt to resolve remaining disputed issues (that is, instances where Honeywell believes the NARCO Trust is not processing claims in accordance with established NARCO Trust Distribution Procedures). Honeywell reserves the right to seek judicial intervention should negotiations fail.

After the NARCO Trust became effective in 2013, the $743 million NARCO Trust Liability was then comprised of:
 
(i)liability for unasserted claims; and
(ii)liability for claims asserted after the NARCO Trust became operational but not yet paid.

Although we know the number of claims filed with the NARCO Trust each year, the Company is not able to determine at this time the portion of the NARCO Trust Liability which represents asserted versus unasserted claims due to the lack of sufficiently reliable claims data because of the claims processing issues described previously.
 
Honeywell continues to maintain the 2006 NARCO Trust Liability Estimate (the $743 million accrual less payments made by Honeywell to the NARCO Trust for Annual Contribution Claims since the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2019), as there has not been sufficiently reliable claims data history to enable the Company to update that liability.

As of December 31, 2019, all cash dividends paid to the NARCO Trust by HWI had been used to pay Annual Contribution Claims. In the nine months ended September 30, 2020, Honeywell funded $54 million to the NARCO Trust for the payment of Annual Contribution Claims.
 
As of September 30, 2020, the Company's total NARCO asbestos liability of $805 million reflects Pre-bankruptcy NARCO Liability of $145 million and NARCO Trust Liability of $660 million (the $743 million accrual for the 2006 NARCO Trust Liability Estimate was reduced by $83 million of payments by Honeywell to the NARCO Trust for Annual Contribution Claims since HWI cash dividend funding was fully exhausted in the fourth quarter of 2019 and there have been no further dividends from HWI). Through September 30, 2020, Pre-bankruptcy NARCO Liability has been reduced by approximately $2 billion since first established in 2002, largely related to settlement payments. The remaining Pre-bankruptcy NARCO Liability principally represents estimated amounts owed pursuant to settlement agreements reached during the pendency of the NARCO bankruptcy proceedings that provide for the right to submit claims to the NARCO Trust subject to qualification under the terms of the settlement agreements and Trust Distribution Procedures. The other NARCO bankruptcy related obligations were paid in 2013 and no further liability is recorded.
 
Honeywell continues to evaluate the appropriateness of the 2006 NARCO Trust Liability Estimate. Despite becoming effective in 2013, the NARCO Trust has experienced delays in becoming fully operational. Violations of the Trust Distribution Procedures and the resulting disputes and challenges, a standstill pending dispute resolution, and limited claims payments, have all contributed to the lack of sufficient normalized data based on actual claims processing experience in the Trust since it became operational. As a result, Honeywell has not been able to further update the NARCO Trust Liability aside from deducting Honeywell payments to the NARCO Trust for Annual Contribution Claims. The 2006 NARCO Trust Liability Estimate continues to be appropriate because of the unresolved pending claims in the Trust, some portion of which will result in payouts in the future, and because new claims continue to be filed with the NARCO Trust. When sufficiently reliable claims data exists, the Company will update its estimate of the NARCO Trust Liability and it is possible that a material change may need to be recognized.
 
Our insurance receivable of $273 million as of September 30, 2020, corresponding to the estimated liability for asserted and unasserted NARCO asbestos claims, reflects coverage which reimburses Honeywell for portions of NARCO-related indemnity and defense costs and is provided by a large number of insurance policies written by dozens of insurance companies in both the domestic insurance market and the London excess market. Honeywell conducts analyses to estimate the probable amount of insurance that is recoverable for asbestos claims. While the substantial majority of our insurance carriers are solvent, some of our individual carriers are insolvent, which has been considered in our analysis of probable recoveries. Honeywell made judgments concerning insurance coverage that Honeywell believes are reasonable and consistent with Honeywell's historical dealings and Honeywell's knowledge of any pertinent solvency issues surrounding insurers.

It is not possible to predict whether resolution values for Bendix-related asbestos claims will increase, decrease or stabilize in the future.
 
The Company's Consolidated Financial Statements reflect an estimated liability for resolution of asserted (claims filed as of the financial statement date) and unasserted Bendix-related asbestos claims and excludes the Company’s ongoing legal fees to defend such asbestos claims which will continue to be expensed as they are incurred. The Company has valued Bendix asserted and unasserted claims using average resolution values for the previous five years. The Company updates the resolution values used to estimate the cost of Bendix asserted and unasserted claims during the fourth quarter each year.

Honeywell reflects the inclusion of all years of epidemiological disease projection through 2059 when estimating the liability for unasserted Bendix-related asbestos claims. Such liability for unasserted Bendix-related asbestos claims is based on historic and anticipated claims filing experience and dismissal rates, disease classifications, and resolution values in the tort system for the previous five years.
 
The Company's insurance receivable corresponding to the liability for settlement of asserted and unasserted Bendix asbestos claims reflects coverage which is provided by a large number of insurance policies written by dozens of insurance companies in both the domestic insurance market and the London excess market. Based on our ongoing analysis of the probable insurance recovery, insurance receivables are recorded in the financial statements simultaneous with the recording of the estimated liability for the underlying asbestos claims. This determination is based on the Company's analysis of the underlying insurance policies, the Company's historical experience with our insurers, the Company's ongoing review of the solvency of its insurers, judicial determinations relevant to our insurance programs, and the Company's consideration of the impacts of any settlements reached with its insurers.

On October 31, 2018, David Kanefsky, a Honeywell shareholder, filed a putative class action complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 related to the prior accounting for Bendix asbestos claims. An Amended Complaint was filed on December 30, 2019, and on February 7, 2020, we filed a Motion to Dismiss. On May 18, 2020, the court denied our Motion to Dismiss. We believe the claims have no merit.

Garrett Matter

In conjunction with the Garrett spin-off, the Company entered into a binding indemnification and reimbursement agreement (“Garrett Indemnity”) with a Garrett subsidiary, pursuant to which Garrett’s subsidiary has an ongoing obligation to make cash payments to Honeywell in amounts equal to (i) 90% of Honeywell’s asbestos-related liability payments primarily related to the Bendix business in the United States, as well as certain environmental-related liability payments and accounts payable and non-United States asbestos-related liability payments, including the legal costs of defending and resolving such liabilities, less (ii) 90% of Honeywell’s net insurance receipts and, as may be applicable, certain other recoveries associated with such liabilities. The amount payable to Honeywell in respect of such liabilities arising in any given year is subject to a cap of approximately Euro 150 million (equivalent to $175 million at the time the Garrett Indemnity was entered into). The obligation under the terms of the Garrett Indemnity continues until the earlier of December 31, 2048, or December 31 of the third consecutive year during which the annual obligation is less than the Euro equivalent, at the fixed exchange rate at the time the indemnification and reimbursement agreement was entered into, of $25 million.

Prior to the Garrett filing described below, on June 12, 2020, the Company and Garrett entered into an amendment of the Garrett Indemnity in connection with Garrett’s amendment of its 2018 credit agreement. These amendments provided Garrett with temporary financial covenant relief with respect to the total leverage and interest coverage ratios, for a period that could extend to as late as June 30, 2022. Garrett’s payments to the Company under the Garrett Indemnity were deferred to the extent Garrett is (or to the extent such payments would cause Garrett to be) out of compliance with the original financial covenants and resume to the extent Garrett is in compliance with such original financial covenants. Any deferred amounts were to be paid to the extent Garrett was in compliance with such original financial covenants and had available capacity to make such payments pursuant to the terms of the indemnification and reimbursement agreement and its current credit agreement.

The receivable amount recorded in connection with the Garrett Indemnity in the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $38 million. Amounts associated with the Garrett Indemnity are scheduled under the agreement to be collected from Garrett quarterly, and because of the extension referenced above and below, such amounts were $36 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

In conjunction with the spin-off, Honeywell also entered into a binding tax matters agreement with Garrett and a Garrett subsidiary (the “Tax Matters Agreement”). The Tax Matters Agreement generally provides that Garrett is responsible and must indemnify Honeywell for all ordinary operating taxes, including income taxes, sales taxes, value-added taxes ("VAT") and payroll taxes, relating to Garrett for all periods, including periods prior to the spin-off, to the extent not paid prior to the spin-off date. In addition, among other items, as a result of the mandatory transition tax imposed by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Garrett is required to make payments to Honeywell in the amount representing the net tax liability of Honeywell under the mandatory transition tax attributable to Garrett.

Garrett Litigation and Bankruptcy Proceedings

On December 2, 2019, Garrett Motion Inc. and Garrett ASASCO Inc. filed a Summons with Notice and commenced a lawsuit in the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York (the “State Court”), seeking to invalidate the Garrett Indemnity. Garrett seeks damages and a declaratory judgment based on various claims set forth in the Summons with Notice. On January 15, 2020, Garrett filed its complaint in the action, which asserted the same claims, and on March 5, 2020, we filed a Motion to Dismiss. To date, Garrett has not filed a response to the Motion to Dismiss. On June 12, 2020, given the challenges of operating in the COVID-19 environment, Honeywell and Garrett entered into a litigation status agreement pursuant to which (i) the parties agreed to make good faith efforts to limit near-term litigation spend on this matter, and (ii) the Company agreed to extend both the $2 million payment owed by Garrett to the Company on May 1, 2020 under the Garrett Indemnity and the $18 million payment owed by Garrett to the Company on April 1, 2020 under the Tax Matters Agreement until December 31, 2020 (which amounts, as previously disclosed, had been deferred to May 31, 2020). On July 17, 2020, the Company received a notice from Garrett asserting that Honeywell has caused material breaches of the Tax Matters Agreement and that the Tax Matters Agreement is unenforceable. On September 23, 2020, Garrett removed the existing State Court litigation against Honeywell to the Bankruptcy Court (as defined below). Honeywell moved to dismiss all of Garrett’s claims on October 13, 2020. Honeywell’s motion to dismiss is currently set for a hearing on November 18, 2020, subject to further direction from the Bankruptcy Court. Honeywell strongly believes that Garrett's allegations have no merit, nor are they material to Honeywell. We believe we have fully complied with our obligations under the indemnification and reimbursement agreement and the Tax Matters Agreement and that both agreements are valid and enforceable.

On September 20, 2020, Garrett and 36 of its affiliates filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Bankruptcy Court”). Based on its bankruptcy filings, Garrett is proposing to sell its business while in bankruptcy, and Garrett entered into a Share and Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of September 20, 2020 (the “Proposed Stalking Horse Bid”), with KPS Capital Partners, LP (“KPS”) and filed proposed bidding procedures for an auction and other procedures related to the proposed sale. As most recently amended, the Proposed Stalking Horse Bid contemplates a proposed purchase of Garrett’s business for $2.6 billion and includes as part of the sale certain claims and causes of action against Honeywell and others arising out of the spin-off, with details related to this aspect of its proposed sale structure to be forthcoming. Garrett also entered into a restructuring support agreement (“RSA”) with holders of approximately 61% of its outstanding senior secured debt which contemplates that Garrett will file and seek approval of a restructuring plan that implements the sale of Garrett’s business, pays Garrett’s secured creditors in full and pays at least 90% of Garrett's unsecured notes obligations from the cash from the sale, provides Garrett’s current stockholders an opportunity to co-invest up to $350 million in the purchase of common stock of a new company organized by KPS to purchase Garrett’s business on same terms as KPS, and includes as part of the sale certain claims and causes of action against Honeywell and others arising out of the spin-off, with details related to this aspect of its proposed sale structure to be forthcoming. On October 23, 2020, the Bankruptcy Court approved “stalking horse” bidding protections for KPS, including a $63 million termination fee and expense reimbursement (subject to a limit of $21 million). The Proposed Stalking Horse Bid and restructuring plan remain subject to Bankruptcy Court approval. KPS’s purchase of Garrett's business remains subject to competing bids and Bankruptcy Court approval, as well as customary regulatory approvals and other customary conditions. Garrett’s operations are expected to proceed, without interruption, during the bankruptcy proceedings.

In October 2020, Honeywell signed a coordination agreement with Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. ("Oaktree") and Centerbridge Partners, L.P. ("Centerbridge"), which since has also been signed by equity holders representing approximately 50% of Garrett’s outstanding common stock. The coordination agreement supports a proposed plan of reorganization (the “Plan”) that would allow Honeywell to recover over time a significant portion of the receivable amounts owed to Honeywell (the “Alternative Proposal”). As currently contemplated, the Alternative Proposal provides that, if the Plan is approved, Honeywell would receive an initial payment of $275 million in cash and new series B preferred stock of reorganized Garrett. In total, the Alternative Proposal would provide for cash payments totaling $1.45 billion comprising the initial cash payment of $275 million and $1.175 billion paid over a twelve-year period ending December 31, 2034 (unless a discounted amount is paid earlier pursuant to certain put, call or acceleration provisions). These cash payments would be paid in full and final satisfaction of Garrett’s obligations to Honeywell under the indemnification and reimbursement agreement and tax matters agreement. Under the Alternative Proposal, both agreements would be terminated in connection with Bankruptcy Court confirmation of the Alternative Proposal. In addition, under the Alternative Proposal, Garrett’s secured creditors and unsecured notes obligations would be paid in full, and equity would be reinstated. The Alternative Proposal remains subject to various conditions and milestones, as well as Bankruptcy Court approval, and Garrett has not accepted the Alternative Proposal to date. There can be no assurance that a plan of reorganization incorporating the terms contemplated by the Alternative Proposal will be approved and confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court.

Garrett is early in the bankruptcy proceedings and the ultimate outcome of such proceedings is uncertain. We regularly review the aggregate carrying value of the receivable amounts due in connection with the Garrett Indemnity and the Tax Matters Agreement. Following Garrett’s bankruptcy filing, Honeywell's review has taken into account, among other things, the potential enterprise value of the Garrett business based on publicly available information, Garrett’s implied enterprise value under the Alternative Proposal (which supports our independent assessment), the possibility that there will be additional bids and/or other plan proposals that Honeywell believes should reflect the enterprise value of Garrett’s business, and the significant uncertainties associated with the potential outcomes of the Garrett bankruptcy proceedings. Based on such review, we currently believe that we will be able to recover a significant portion, but potentially not all, of the receivable amounts owed to us under the agreements with Garrett. As such, and based on the assumption that the Bankruptcy Court will approve a plan that reflects an enterprise value for Garrett that meets or exceeds Honeywell's best estimate, Honeywell has recorded an adjustment of $350 million to lower the aggregate carrying balance of the receivable amounts due in connection with the Garrett Indemnity and the Tax Matters Agreement. Honeywell recorded a corresponding, non-cash charge in our statement of operations in the third quarter of 2020 in the amount of $350 million. This amount represents the difference between the approximately $1.4 billion carrying value of the undiscounted receivables owed to Honeywell by Garrett under these agreements and the present value of amounts owed to us over the full term of these existing agreements.

The ultimate outcome of the bankruptcy process is uncertain. Depending on the transaction and/or plan of reorganization ultimately approved and confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court, the amount collected could be more or less than such reduced amount of the remaining receivable amounts recorded in our financial statements. There are currently two competing proposals, the Proposed Stalking Horse Bid and the Alternative Proposal (the "Competing Proposals") which both remain subject to modification, and it is possible that there will be additional bids and alternative proposals for plans of reorganization for Garrett. If either of the Competing Proposals is accepted and approved by the Bankruptcy Court in its current form, then there would be an additional write-down of the remaining receivables due from Garrett, with a corresponding charge to our statement of operations in the same amount. In the case of the current Proposed Stalking Horse Bid, such additional adjustment would be a significant portion of the remaining receivables due from Garrett. In the case of the Alternative Proposal, we would not expect such additional adjustment to be material. There can be no assurance that recording an additional adjustment (positive or negative) against the remaining receivable amounts in whole or in part (together with a related statement of operations charge) will not be necessary in a future period or periods. The ultimate outcome of the bankruptcy process is uncertain. Depending on the transaction and/or plan of reorganization ultimately approved and confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court, the amount collected could be more or less than such reduced amount of the remaining receivable amounts recorded in our financial statements. Honeywell will continue to monitor the Bankruptcy Court proceedings in order to appropriately assess and enforce our rights in this matter. Honeywell intends to vigorously defend its rights to collect amounts due under the Garrett Indemnity and Tax Matters Agreement with Garrett.

Other Matters
 
The Company is subject to a number of other lawsuits, investigations and disputes (some of which involve substantial amounts claimed) arising out of the conduct of our business, including matters relating to commercial transactions, government contracts, product liability, prior acquisitions and divestitures, employee benefit plans, intellectual property, and environmental, health and safety matters. We recognize a liability for any contingency that is probable of occurrence and reasonably estimable. We continually assess the likelihood of adverse judgments of outcomes in these matters, as well as potential ranges of possible losses (taking into consideration any insurance recoveries), based on a careful analysis of each matter with the assistance of outside legal counsel and, if applicable, other experts. Included in these other matters are the following:
 
Honeywell v. United Auto Workers (UAW) et. al—In September 2011, the UAW and certain Honeywell retirees (Plaintiffs) filed a suit in the Eastern District of Michigan (the District Court) alleging that a series of Master Collective Bargaining Agreements (MCBAs) between Honeywell and the UAW provided the retirees with rights to lifetime, vested healthcare benefits that could never be changed or reduced. Plaintiffs alleged that Honeywell had violated those vested rights by implementing express limitations (CAPS) on the amount Honeywell contributed toward healthcare coverage for the retirees. Honeywell subsequently answered the UAW’s complaint and asserted counterclaims, including for breach of implied warranty.
 
Between 2014 and 2015, Honeywell began enforcing the CAPS against former employees. In response, the UAW and certain of the Plaintiffs filed a motion seeking a ruling that the MCBAs do not limit Honeywell’s obligation to contribute to healthcare coverage for those retirees.
 
On March 29, 2018, the District Court issued its opinion resolving all pending summary judgment motions, except for Honeywell’s counterclaim for breach of implied warranty, which has since been dismissed without prejudice.

In the opinion, the District Court held that the MCBAs do not promise retirees vested, lifetime benefits that survive expiration of the MCBAs. Based on this ruling, Honeywell terminated the retirees healthcare coverage benefits altogether as of July 31, 2018. In response, the UAW filed a motion to enjoin Honeywell from completely terminating coverage as of July 31, 2018, arguing that the CAPS themselves are vested and that Honeywell must continue to provide retiree medical benefits at the capped level. On July 28, 2018, the District Court denied the UAW’s motion and entered a final judgment consistent with its March 2018 ruling. The UAW appealed this decision to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

In the March 2018 opinion, the District Court also held that Honeywell is obligated under the MCBAs to pay the “full premium” for retiree healthcare rather than the capped amount. Based on this ruling, Honeywell would be required to pay monetary damages to retirees for any past years in which Honeywell paid less than the “full premium” of their healthcare coverage. Such damages would be limited, depending on the retiree group, to a two to three-year period ending when the 2017 MCBA expired, and Honeywell would have no ongoing obligation to continue funding healthcare coverage for subsequent periods. Honeywell appealed the District Court’s ruling on this “full premium” damages issue.

On April 3, 2020, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion ruling for Honeywell in all respects. The Court of Appeals affirmed the District Court's ruling that the MCBAs do not promise retirees vested, lifetime benefits that survive expiration of the MCBAs. In addition, the Court of Appeals reversed the District Court's ruling that Honeywell was obligated under the MCBAs to pay the "full premium" for retiree healthcare, rather than the capped amount. As a result of these rulings, Honeywell is not required to pay any monetary damages to the Plaintiffs.

Plaintiffs sought rehearing en banc from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, which petition was denied. Plaintiffs failed to timely appeal the Sixth Circuit's ruling to the Supreme Court of the United States. Accordingly, as of October 8, 2020, the case has now been fully resolved.

Petrobras and Unaoil—We are cooperating with certain investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the SEC and Brazilian authorities relating to our use of third parties who previously worked for our UOP business in Brazil in relation to Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras). The investigations are focused on compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and similar Brazilian laws, and involve, among other things, document production and interviews with former and current management and employees. The DOJ and the SEC are also examining a matter involving a foreign subsidiary’s prior engagement of Unaoil S.A.M. in Algeria. We are cooperating with the authorities in each of the above matters. While we cannot predict the outcome of these matters, based on the facts currently known to us, we do not anticipate that these matters will have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Given the uncertainty inherent in litigation and investigations (including the specific matters referenced above), we do not believe it is possible to develop estimates of reasonably possible loss in excess of current accruals for these matters (other than as specifically set forth above). Considering our past experience and existing accruals, we do not expect the outcome of these matters, either individually or in the aggregate, to have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position. Because most contingencies are resolved over long periods of time, potential liabilities are subject to change due to new developments, changes in settlement strategy or the impact of evidentiary requirements, which could cause us to pay damage awards or settlements (or become subject to equitable remedies) that could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations or operating cash flows in the periods recognized or paid.

ITEM 2.MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF
 FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 (Dollars in millions, except per share amounts)
 
The following Management Discussion and Analysis is intended to help the reader understand the results of operations and financial condition of Honeywell International Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries (“Honeywell” or “the Company”) for the three months (quarter) and nine months ended September 30, 2020. The financial information as of September 30, 2020 should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2019 contained in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

COVID-19 UPDATE

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) was identified in Asia. Over the next several months, COVID-19 quickly spread across the world. In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a worldwide pandemic. As of September 30, 2020, the virus continues to spread, infecting more than 10 million people worldwide. No vaccine is currently available.

Governments took unprecedented actions to contain the spread of COVID-19, temporarily shutting down non-essential businesses, issuing stay at home or “shelter in place” orders and asking citizens to avoid all non-essential travel. In certain situations, governments closed borders and issued mandatory quarantines. Companies were asked, in many cases were required, to allow non-essential employees to work remotely. Consumer spending declined, global travel demand declined significantly, and the world entered a global recession.

These events impacted our business operations in multiple ways. In the first quarter of 2020, we quickly responded to the changing environment. In January 2020, we implemented policies in select countries within Asia to restrict travel and require employees to work from home for all roles that allow for remote work. In March 2020, we expanded this work from home policy to include our employees worldwide. We introduced appropriate safety and hygiene protocols to enable our manufacturing employees to operate safely through the pandemic. We actively monitored the changing government rules and regulations for each of our locations worldwide.

We remain cautious as many factors remain unpredictable, including COVID-19 infection rates and vaccine availability timeline. We are monitoring COVID-19 infection rates globally and acknowledge the risk of new surges in COVID-19 infections.

We prepared procedures for the phased return of our employees to office sites and trained our local site leaders in the appropriate safety and hygiene protocols. As of September 30, 2020, all of our manufacturing sites continue to operate and, outside of India, most of our employees in Asia have returned to the workplace in some capacity. We also returned workers to select office sites within Europe and North America. In many countries, including the U.S., most of our non-manufacturing employees continue to work from home (for all roles that allow for remote work).

The global recession resulted in a slow-down in demand for many of the products and services that we offer. The impact on each of our businesses is outlined below:

Aerospace – The decline in global travel negatively impacted many of our customers, resulting in lower demand for our products from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and negatively impacted demand for our aftermarket businesses. As a result, this segment's sales and profits declined in the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019.

Performance Materials and Technologies – Many of our customers operate in the oil and gas industry. The decline in global travel, coupled with excessive oil and gas supply, negatively impacted many of our customers and resulted in lower demand for our products. As a result, this segment's sales and profits declined in the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019.

36




Honeywell Building Technologies – Our customers own or manage buildings in a variety of industries including commercial real estate, hospitality, government, healthcare, banking and education. The global recession impacted many of these industries, resulting in a reduction of discretionary spending. As a result, this segment experienced lower demand for our products, and segment sales and profits declined in the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to the three months ended September 30, ,2019.

Safety and Productivity Solutions – The global pandemic created significant demand for our respiratory personal protective equipment (PPE) driving increases in sales and profits in the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019.

As a result of the slowdown in demand for our products, we implemented several cost reduction programs across our enterprise. We canceled our 2020 merit increases and reduced executive and Board of Director compensation. We initiated reduced work schedules across the company and implemented permanent census reductions.

We also took several steps to secure additional liquidity. In May 2020, we completed a public Senior Notes offering, which provided $3 billion of available liquidity. In August 2020, we completed a public Senior Notes offering, which provided $3 billion of available liquidity which was used to repay the outstanding principal amount of $3.0 billion under the Term Loan Agreement. As of September 30, 2020, there are no outstanding borrowings or commitments remaining under the Term Loan Agreement. As of September 30, 2020, we held $15.0 billion of available cash and short-term investments.

We continue to monitor and respond to the changing conditions created by the pandemic.

Employee Health, Safety, and Economic Wellness

We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and its impacts globally. We are prioritizing the health and safety of our employees. Out of an abundance of caution for the health of our employees and to support local government initiatives to stem the spread of the virus, we implemented several precautions at various sites around the world at all times in compliance with local government requirements and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. These include, but are not limited to:

Limiting visitor site access to business-essential purposes;
Introducing screening checks at certain sites where permissible or mandated;
Enabling employees to work from home wherever and whenever required or appropriate;
Continuously updating travel guidance, according to latest developments; and
Complying with all local health authority guidance or regulations and our own protocols, including requesting employees to comply with self-quarantine requirements whenever advisable.

We have taken a number of measures to support our employees during these difficult times. We extended medical benefits globally to cover out-of-pocket costs associated with testing for coronavirus, and for those on our U.S. company medical plans, we are also covering treatment costs. In Mexico, we introduced a medical benefit for employees at lower compensation levels to ensure access to private medical treatment. In the U.S., we changed our sick leave plan for non-exempt employees to make more sick time available earlier in the year if it is needed. We established a $10 million company-funded relief fund targeting employees worldwide at lower compensation levels, especially those on reduced work hours who didn’t receive high levels of income replacement from unemployment or other government assistance.

To date, Honeywell has made substantial mask donations to frontline workers across multiple regions. Honeywell funded a $2 million Small Business Innovation Fund in Charlotte to help storefront businesses with 50 or fewer employees make investments in new technologies and business models to adjust to the realities of operating in the COVID-19 environment; businesses owned by women, minorities and veterans will be prioritized. In addition, Honeywell funded the provision of approximately nine million meals and a month’s supply of hygiene kits to more than 12,500 families in India suffering hardships due to the crisis.

Our Commitment to Public Health

We produce critical worker safety gear such as face masks, gloves, goggles, safety suits, and protective footwear. We play an essential role in the health and well-being of people and economies, and our customers and communities are depending on us more than ever to deliver for them. We are committed to supporting the safety of our employees, customers and fellow citizens around the world.

We are investing in new production facilities and continue to expand existing facilities to increase production of essential PPE products. We will bring these products to market as quickly as possible. We are committed to healthcare professionals, first responders, distributors and other stakeholders in an effort to ensure our PPE products are being placed quickly and cost-effectively in the hands of those most in need.

We announced our new capacity in the U.S. to make N95 masks, with production lines added in Rhode Island and Arizona that will collectively produce 40 million masks each month to support health, safety, and response workers globally. In addition, we are expanding our non-U.S. capacity with a new mask manufacturing line in the U.K that is expected to produce 4.5 million masks each month, and a new line in India that is expected to produce 2 million masks each month. Separately, we are collaborating with Mubadala Investment Company's subsidiary, Strata Manufacturing, in the UAE to produce 30 million masks annually.

We have communicated the following principles to our authorized distributor network:

Our expectation that, at a minimum, all of our partners will comply with all applicable laws prohibiting price gouging and apply appropriate diligence to the greatest extent possible to understand how our products are being purchased so that they are placed quickly and cost-effectively in the hands of those most in need - including first responders and medical professionals.

While we do not control the prices that third parties set, we expect our partners to fairly price PPE used in the COVID-19 response effort.

If we find that one of our partners is not upholding the letter or spirit of these principles, we reserve the right not to fulfill that partner’s orders and terminate our relationship with that party.

We are also investing in developing and bringing to market a wide array of new COVID-related products, including but not limited to Healthy Buildings solutions, remote operations offerings, automation technologies to help speed vaccine development, vaccine packaging solutions, an ultraviolet cleaning system for aircraft, and innovative dual-layer face covers and safety packs.

Plant Productivity and Safety

In situations where our businesses were deemed essential, we worked with local officials to determine how to safely operate our manufacturing facilities. We successfully operated these manufacturing facilities with minimal disruption in our productivity. In the second quarter of 2020, we repurposed certain manufacturing facilities to produce PPE that was in short supply around the world. As of September 30, 2020, more than 95% of our manufacturing sites were operating at normal production levels.

We continue to provide essential services and produce essential goods around the world. We employ standards such as screening checks, use of masks, face coverings and other safety equipment and social distancing practices along production lines in many of our production facilities at all times in compliance with local government requirements and CDC guidelines. We take appropriate actions including disinfecting and quarantine procedures when a suspected COVID-19 case is identified.

38




Customers and Suppliers

Current global economic conditions due to COVID-19 have adversely affected and may continue to adversely affect our customers’ or suppliers’ ability to operate or obtain financing, particularly in our airline, oil & gas, and automotive end markets. Customer or supplier bankruptcies, delays in their ability to obtain financing, or the unavailability of financing could adversely affect our cash flow or results of operations. We continue to actively monitor both supplier and customer financial health and take measures to manage our supply chain disruptions and limit our exposure.

See Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors for discussion of risks associated to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Garrett Bankruptcy

On September 20, 2020, Garrett Motion Inc. (“Garrett”) and certain of its affiliates filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Bankruptcy Court”).

Garrett is still in the early stages of its bankruptcy process, and any further impacts on our financial statements remain subject to the various relief ultimately granted to Garrett and its affiliates by the Bankruptcy Court and the plan of reorganization ultimately confirmed in their bankruptcy proceedings, among other things.

Two competing proposals have been publicly disclosed to date (the “Competing Proposals”):

1.Garrett entered into a Share and Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of September 20, 2020 (the “Proposed Stalking Horse Bid”), with KPS Capital Partners, LP (“KPS”). As most recently amended, the Proposed Stalking Horse Bid contemplates a proposed purchase of Garrett’s business for $2.6 billion and a Chapter 11 plan that implements the sale of Garrett’s business, pays Garrett’s secured creditors in full and pays 90% of Garrett’s unsecured notes obligations from the cash from the sale, provides Garrett’s current stockholders an opportunity to co-invest up to $350 million in the purchase of common stock of the a new company organized by KPS to purchase Garrett’s business on same terms as KPS, and includes as part of the sale certain claims and causes of action against Honeywell and others arising out of the spin-off, with details related to this aspect of its proposed sale structure to be forthcoming.

2.Honeywell signed a coordination agreement with Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. (“Oaktree”) and Centerbridge Partners, L.P. (“Centerbridge”), which has since been signed by equity holders representing approximately 50% of Garrett’s outstanding common stock (the "Alternative Proposal"). The coordination agreement supports a proposed plan of reorganization under which Honeywell would receive cash payments totaling $1.45 billion comprising an initial payment of $275 million and $1.175 billion paid over a twelve-year period ending December 31, 2034. These cash payments would be paid in full and final satisfaction of Garrett’s obligations under the Garrett Indemnity and Tax Matters Agreement. Under the Alternative Proposal, Garrett’s secured creditors and unsecured notes obligations would be paid in full, and equity would be reinstated.

Both of the Competing Proposals remain subject to various conditions and milestones, as well as Bankruptcy Court approval and confirmation. It is also possible that there will be additional bids and alternative proposed plans of reorganization for Garrett. There can be no assurance that either the Proposed Stalking Horse Bid (including the plan of reorganization contemplated thereby) or the Alternative Proposal will be accepted by the requisite parties and approved and confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court.

We understand based on Garrett’s public disclosures that the business fundamentals of Garrett remain strong and, in the quarter ended June 30, 2020, Garrett continued to generate positive earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. We believe such disclosures by Garrett management demonstrate Garrett’s ability to meet its financial obligations despite temporary adverse business conditions resulting from COVID-19, particularly in light of the financial covenant relief provided by the Credit Agreement and IRA Amendments.

The ultimate outcome of the bankruptcy process is uncertain. Depending on the transaction and/or plan of reorganization ultimately approved and confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court, the amount collected could be more or less than such reduced amount of the remaining net receivable amounts recorded in our financial statements.
39





We will continue to monitor the Bankruptcy Court proceedings in order to appropriately assess and enforce our rights in this matter. We intend to vigorously defend our rights to collect amounts due under the Indemnity Agreement and Tax Matters Agreement with Garrett. We continue to strongly believe that Garrett's attempts to challenge the enforceability of these agreements have no merit, that we have fully complied with our obligations thereunder, and that both agreements are valid and enforceable. The accounting adjustment and related charge described above does not impact or change our view of the strength and merits of these positions.

For additional information, see “Risk Factors – Garrett is currently subject to bankruptcy proceedings in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. The outcome of the bankruptcy proceedings is unknown and may adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition” and Note 16 to Commitments and Contingencies of Notes to Consolidated Interim Financial Statements.

 (14)%(13)%
    
A discussion of net sales by segment can be found in the Review of Business Segments section of this Management Discussion and Analysis.

The unfavorable volume impact in the quarter and nine months is driven by lower sales in certain products across our businesses due to the global recession attributable to COVID-19 and volatility in the oil and gas industry, partially offset by the strength in respiratory PPE products, warehouse automation projects, and defense and space business.

The unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation in the nine months is driven by the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar against the currencies of the majority of our international markets, primarily the Chinese Renminbi, Indian Rupee, Canadian Dollar, Russian Ruble, and Australian Dollar.


Cost of Products and Services Sold

% change compared with prior period(11)% (10)% 
Gross margin percentage31.0 %33.5 %31.8 %33.8 %

Cost of products and services sold decreased in the quarter primarily due to lower direct and indirect material costs of approximately $220 million and $110 million and lower labor costs of approximately $370 million (both driven by lower sales volumes and other cost actions to improve productivity), partially offset by higher repositioning and other charges of approximately $20 million.

Cost of products and services sold decreased in the nine months primarily due to lower direct and indirect material costs of approximately $1,170 million and $240 million and lower labor costs of approximately $530 million (both driven by lower sales volumes and other cost actions to improve productivity), partially offset by higher repositioning and other charges of approximately $80 million.
 
Gross margin percentage decreased in the quarter and nine months primarily due to lower sales volumes across each of our businesses.

The effective tax rate increased for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2019 primarily from a non-cash charge related to the reduction of the aggregate carrying value of certain receivables with no corresponding tax benefit, the absence of tax benefits related to the reduction of accrued withholding taxes on unremitted foreign earnings and decreased tax benefits for employee share based compensation. The effective tax rate decreased for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019 primarily from the favorable resolution of a foreign tax matter related to the spin-off transactions, tax law changes in India, and the resolution of certain U.S. tax matters offset by a non-cash charge related to the reduction of the aggregate carrying value of certain receivables with no corresponding tax benefit, the absence of tax benefits related to the reduction of accrued withholding taxes on unremitted foreign earnings and decreased tax benefits for employee share based compensation.

The effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was higher than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% primarily from a non-cash charge related to the reduction of the aggregate carrying value of certain receivables with no corresponding tax benefit, incremental tax reserves and state taxes partially offset by foreign earnings taxed at lower foreign tax rates. The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% primarily from foreign earnings taxed at lower foreign tax rates, the favorable resolution of a foreign tax matter related to the spin-off transactions, tax law changes in India and the resolution of certain U.S. tax matters offset by a non-cash charge related to the reduction of the aggregate carrying value of certain receivables with no corresponding tax benefit, incremental tax reserves and state taxes.

The effective tax rate for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2019 was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% primarily due to the reduction of withholding taxes related to unremitted foreign earnings.

Repositioning and Other Charges
 
Cash spending related to our repositioning actions was $399 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and was funded through operating cash flows.

B.Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
We continue to manage our businesses to maximize operating cash flows as the primary source of liquidity. In addition to our available cash and operating cash flows, we maintain additional sources of liquidity, including committed credit lines, short-term debt from the commercial paper market, long-term borrowings, access to the public debt and equity markets and the ability to access non-U.S. cash as a result of U.S. Tax Reform. We use cash generated through operations to invest in our existing core businesses, acquisitions, share repurchases and dividends.

Cash Flow Summary

Our cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities, as reflected in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows, are summarized as follows:
 
 Nine Months Ended September 30,
 20202019
Cash provided by (used for):  
Operating activities$3,426 $4,283 
Investing activities(410)(122)
Financing activities1,972 (2,491)
Effect of exchange rate changes on cash(19)(49)
Net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents$4,969 $1,621 
 
Cash provided by operating activities decreased by $857 million primarily due to lower net income of $1,161 million and an unfavorable impact from changes in other assets and liabilities of $10 million, partially offset by a favorable impact from working capital of $314 million.
 
Cash used for investing activities increased by $288 million primarily due to a $320 million increase in payments related to settlements of derivative contracts and $111 million increase in capital expenditures, partially offset by a net decrease in investments of $163 million.
 
Cash provided by financing activities increased by $4,463 million primarily due to an increase in proceeds from the issuance of long-term debt of $7,380 million and decrease in share repurchases of $1,501 million, partially offset by an increase in payments of long-term debt of $4,117 million and decrease in proceeds from issuance of common stock of $262 million.
 
Liquidity
 
Each of our businesses is focused on increasing operating cash flows through revenue growth, margin expansion and improved working capital turnover. We believe that cash balances and operating cash flow will continue to be our principal source of liquidity. In addition to the available cash and operating cash flows, additional sources of liquidity include committed credit lines, short-term debt from the commercial paper markets, long-term borrowings, and access to the public debt and equity markets. To date, the Company has not experienced any limitations in our ability to access these sources of liquidity. Also, considering the current economic environment in which each of our businesses operate, our business strategies and our productivity initiatives, we believe that our cash balances and operating cash flows will remain our principal source of liquidity.

49




We monitor the third-party depository institutions that hold our cash and cash equivalents. Our emphasis is primarily safety of principal and secondarily maximizing yield of those funds. We diversify our cash and cash equivalents among counterparties to minimize exposure to any one of these entities. As of September 30, 2020, we held $15.0 billion of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments.

A source of liquidity is our ability to access the commercial paper market. Commercial paper notes are sold at a discount or premium and have a maturity of not more than 365 days from date of issuance. Borrowings under the commercial paper program are available for general corporate purposes as well as for financing acquisitions. As of September 30, 2020, we had $3.5 billion of commercial paper notes outstanding.

We also have the following credit agreements:

A $1.5 billion 364-Day Credit Agreement (the "364-Day Credit Agreement") with a syndicate of banks, dated April 10, 2020. This 364-Day Credit Agreement is maintained for general corporate purposes. The 364-Day Credit Agreement replaces the previously reported 364-day credit agreement dated as of April 26, 2019, which was terminated on April 10, 2020. As of September 30, 2020, there were no outstanding borrowings under our 364-Day Credit Agreement.

A $4.0 billion Five Year Credit Agreement (the "5-Year Credit Agreement") with a syndicate of banks, dated April 26, 2019. This 5-Year Credit Agreement is maintained for general corporate purposes. Commitments under the 5-Year Credit Agreement can be increased pursuant to the terms of the 5-Year Credit Agreement to an aggregate amount not to exceed $4.5 billion. As of September 30, 2020, there were no outstanding borrowings under our 5-Year Credit Agreement.
 
We continuously assess the relative strength of each business in our portfolio as to strategic fit, market position, profit and cash flow contribution in order to upgrade our combined portfolio and identify business units that will most benefit from increased investment. We identify acquisition candidates that will further our strategic plan and strengthen our existing core businesses. We also identify business units that do not fit into our long-term strategic plan based on their market position, relative profitability or growth potential. These businesses are considered for potential divestiture, restructuring or other repositioning actions subject to regulatory constraints.
 
In the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company repurchased $2,149 million of outstanding shares. In April 2019, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to a total of $10 billion of Honeywell common stock, which included amounts remaining under, and replaced, the previously approved share repurchase program. As of September 30, 2020, $4.8 billion remained available for additional share repurchases. Honeywell presently expects to repurchase outstanding shares from time to time to offset the dilutive impact over the long-term of employee stock-based compensation plans, including future option exercises, restricted unit vesting and matching contributions under our savings plans. Additionally, we will seek to reduce share count via share repurchases as and when attractive opportunities arise. The amount and timing of future repurchases may vary depending on market conditions and the level of operating, financing and other investing activities.

We continue to identify opportunities to improve our liquidity and negotiate payment terms with our vendors to conform to best in class industry standards. In addition, we facilitate supply chain finance ("SCF") programs with multiple third-party financial institutions. These programs enable our suppliers, at their sole discretion, to sell their receivables from the Company to these financial institutions on terms that are negotiated between the supplier and the respective financial institution. Our obligations, including the amounts due and scheduled payment dates, are not impacted by our suppliers’ decision to sell their receivables under these programs. Amounts due to our suppliers that elected to participate in the SCF programs are included in Accounts payable on the Consolidated Balance Sheet.

Based on past performance and current expectations, we believe that our operating cash flows will be sufficient to meet our future operating cash needs. Our available cash, committed credit lines and access to the public debt and equity markets, provide additional sources of short-term and long-term liquidity to fund current operations, debt maturities, and future investment opportunities. See Part II, Item 1A Risk Factors for discussion of risks related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Company increased the quarterly dividend rate by 3% to $0.93 per share of common stock effective with the fourth quarter 2020 dividend. We believe our strong financial position, continued investments for growth, and effective cost management strategies allow us to increase our quarterly dividend rate.

We have not experienced any material impact to our internal control over financial reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of our employees worked remotely during the period in which we prepared these financial statements due to the impact of COVID-19. We enhanced our oversight and monitoring during the close and reporting process, including investments in expanded VPN capabilities and higher scrutiny and monitoring of cybersecurity threats. Other than enhancing our oversight and monitoring processes, we did not alter or compromise our disclosure controls and procedures. We are continually monitoring and assessing the need to modify or enhance our disclosure controls to ensure disclosure controls and procedures continue to be effective.

Item 1A.Risk Factors
 
Other than as noted below, there have been no material changes to the disclosure presented in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K under Item 1A. Risk Factors. For a further discussion of our Risk Factors, refer to the “Risk Factors” discussion contained in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

The global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and related impacts have adversely affected and may continue to adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, and cash flow.

The global spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) has created significant volatility, uncertainty and economic disruption that have negatively impacted our business, operations and financial results. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to impact our business, operations and financial results will depend on numerous evolving factors that we may not be able to accurately predict, including: the duration, scope and severity of the pandemic; governmental, business and individual decisions and actions; the impact of the pandemic on economic activity; and the extent to which we or our employees, customers, suppliers, service providers or other business partners may be prevented from conducting normal business activities for an indefinite period of time, including due to shutdowns that may be requested or mandated by governmental authorities. These factors could, among other things, continue to disrupt (i) the purchasing, contracting and payment behaviors of our customers and their end-users; (ii) our operations, including our manufacturing activities, the shipment of our products, and the performance of our suppliers and service providers; and (iii) our liquidity and cash flow.

Risks arising from the COVID-19 pandemic that have impacted and that may continue to impact our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects include, among other things:

Customer Risk. Existing and potential customers and their end-users have taken and may continue to take actions to reduce or suspend operations, reduce or delay spending, cancel contracts, or cut costs in a manner that reduces demand for our products and services. In particular, lower demand for air travel may continue to cause our customers to delay or suspend spending in connection with the manufacturing, repair, overhaul or servicing of aircraft, and there may be long-term deterioration in demand for air travel that could impact our business beyond the current COVID-19 health crisis. Customers may also continue to attempt to renegotiate contracts and obtain concessions, face financial constraints on their ability to make payments to us on a timely basis or at all, or discontinue their business operations, and we may be required to discount the pricing of our products. In addition, unfavorable customer site conditions, such as closure of or access restrictions to customer facilities, and disruptions to our customers’ third-party logistics, warehousing, inventory management and distribution services may continue to limit our ability to sell products, meet billing milestones or provide services.

Operations Risk. The closure of our facilities, restrictions inhibiting our employees’ ability to access those facilities, and disruptions to the ability of our suppliers or service providers to deliver goods or services to us (including as a result of supplier facility closures or access restrictions, disruptions to their supply chains, and supplier liquidity or bankruptcy risk) could disrupt our ability to provide our services and solutions and result in, among other things, terminations of customer contracts and losses of revenue. Because the COVID-19 pandemic could adversely affect our near-term and long-term revenues, earnings, liquidity and
52




cash flows, we have begun to take and may be required to continue taking significant cost actions, including but not limited to reducing discretionary expenses (such as non-essential travel, contractors, and consultants), reducing hiring, canceling annual merit increases; reducing executive and board of director pay, reducing work schedules across the enterprise, shortening or staggering work schedules to match production with demand, and reducing staffing levels as well as increasing supplier-based productivity and enhancing spending-limit controls. However, our costs may not decrease at the same pace as revenue declines as many of our costs are less variable in nature, and we may not be able to or may not chose to significantly reduce them in an effort to remain focused on long-term outlook and growth opportunities. Remote work and increased frequency of cybersecurity attacks, including phishing and malware attempts that utilize COVID-19-related strategies, increase the risk of a material cybersecurity incident that could result in the loss of proprietary or personal data, render us more vulnerable to future cybersecurity attacks, disrupt our operations, or otherwise cause us reputational or financial harm.

Liquidity and Cash Flow Risk. Because of the customer and operations risk described above, our business may not continue to generate sufficient cash flow from operations in the future to service our debt and make necessary capital expenditures. If we are unable to generate such cash flow, we may need to use existing cash balances to service our debt, and if such balances are insufficient, then we may be required to adopt one or more alternatives, such as selling assets, restructuring of existing debt, issuing new debt or obtaining additional equity capital on terms that may be onerous or highly dilutive. Our ability to refinance our indebtedness will depend on the capital markets and our financial condition at such time.

The scope and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is changing rapidly, additional impacts may arise, and resumption of normal business operations may be delayed or constrained by lingering effects on our suppliers, third-party service providers, and/or customers. A sustained or prolonged COVID-19 pandemic would exacerbate the negative impacts described above and below as well as other risks disclosed in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K under Item 1A. Risk Factors.

Concentrations of credit, counterparty and market risk may adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.

We maintain long-term contract relationships with many of our customers, suppliers and other counterparties. While we monitor the financial health of these counterparties, we are exposed to credit and market risks of such counterparties, including those concentrated in the same or similar industries and geographic regions. Changes in economic conditions could also lead to concerns about the creditworthiness of counterparties in the same or similar industry or geography, impacting our ability to renew our long-term contract arrangements or collect amounts due under these arrangements. Among other factors, changes in economic conditions could also result in the credit deterioration or insolvency of a significant counterparty. On September 20, 2020, Garrett and certain of its affiliates filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. As a consequence, we have reduced the receivable amounts due in connection with such agreements by $350 million, which has a corresponding pre-tax and after-tax, non-cash charge to our third quarter 2020 statement of operations. We may be required to record an additional adjustment against those receivable amounts in whole or in part (together with a related statement of operations charge) in a future period or periods.

53




Garrett is currently subject to bankruptcy proceedings in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. We have recorded an adjustment against the receivable amounts owed to us under agreements with Garrett, and depending on developments, we may be required to record an additional adjustment in whole or in part (together with a related statement of operations charge) in a future period or periods.

In connection with the spin-off of Garrett in October 2018, we entered into an indemnification and reimbursement agreement and a tax matters agreement with Garrett and/or certain Garrett subsidiaries. As of September 30, 2020, Honeywell’s receivables due from Garrett prior to the adjustments described herein, primarily under these agreements, were collectively approximately $1.4 billion. On September 20, 2020, Garrett and certain of its affiliates filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. Garrett plans to sell its business while in bankruptcy, and entered into a Proposed Stalking Horse Bid with KPS, which currently contemplates a proposed purchase of Garrett’s business for $2.6 billion. Garrett also entered into a RSA which contemplates that Garrett will file and seek approval of a restructuring plan that implements the sale of Garrett’s business, pays Garrett’s secured creditors from the cash from the sale, and includes as part of the sale certain claims and causes of action against Honeywell and others arising out of the spin-off, with details related to this aspect of its proposed sale structure to be forthcoming. The Proposed Stalking Horse Bid and restructuring plan remain subject to Bankruptcy Court approval. KPS’s purchase of Garrett remains subject to competing bids and Bankruptcy Court approval, as well as customary regulatory approvals and other customary conditions.

In October 2020, we signed a coordination agreement with Oaktree and Centerbridge, which has since been signed by equity holders represented approximately 50% of Garrett’s outstanding Common Stock. The coordination agreement supports an Alternative Proposal that would allow Honeywell to recover over time a significant portion of the receivable amounts owed to us. The Alternative Proposal remains subject to various conditions and milestones, as well as Bankruptcy Court approval, and Garrett has not accepted the Alternative Proposal to date. There can be no assurance that the Alternative Proposal will be approved and confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court.

Garrett is early in the bankruptcy proceedings and the ultimate outcome of such proceedings is uncertain. We regularly review the aggregate carrying value of the receivable amounts due in connection with the indemnification and reimbursement agreement and the tax matters agreement. Following Garrett’s bankruptcy filing, our review has taken into account, among other things, the potential enterprise value of the Garrett business using publicly available information, Garrett’s implied enterprise value under the Alternative Proposal (which supports our independent assessment), the possibility that there will be additional bids and/or other plan proposals that we believe should reflect the enterprise value of Garrett’s business, and the significant uncertainties associated with the potential outcomes of the Garrett bankruptcy proceedings. Based on such review, we currently believe that we will be able to recover a significant portion, but potentially not all, of the receivable amounts owed to us under the agreements with Garrett. As such, and based on the assumption that the Bankruptcy Court will approve a plan that reflects an enterprise value for Garrett that meets or exceeds our best estimate, we have recorded an adjustment of $350 million against the receivable amounts due in connection with the indemnification and reimbursement agreement and the tax matters agreement. We also recorded a corresponding pre-tax and after-tax, non-cash charge to our statement of operations in the third quarter 2020 in the amount of $350 million. The ultimate outcome of the bankruptcy process is uncertain. As more fully described under "Garrett Bankruptcy Proceedings" above, should any of these assumptions change and depending on the transaction and/or plan of reorganization ultimately approved by the Bankruptcy Court, the amount collected could be more or less than such reduced amount of the remaining receivable amounts recorded in our financial statements. There can be no assurance that recording an additional adjustment against those receivable amounts, in whole or in part, (together with a related statement of operations charge) will not be necessary in a future period or periods.
