Fourth quarter net sales of $3.5 billion increased 4.2% with a 1.3% increase in organic sales. Organic sales increased 4.8% in the New Equipment segment and decreased 1.4% in the Service segment.

Fourth quarter GAAP operating profit of $440 million increased $4 million from the prior year. Adjusted operating profit of $509 million increased $36 million and $19 million at constant currency. Adjusted operating profit growth at constant currency was primarily driven by segment profit growth of $15 million. In addition, GAAP operating profit growth was impacted by higher restructuring and incremental public company standalone costs, partially offset by net non-recurring items. GAAP operating profit margin contracted 40 basis points to 12.6% and adjusted operating profit margin expanded 50 basis points to 14.6%, with margin expansion in both segments.

GAAP EPS of $0.58 increased $0.08 and adjusted EPS of $0.66 increased $0.19, driven by operating profit growth and a lower effective tax rate. In addition, GAAP EPS growth was partially offset by higher interest expense.

Full year net sales declined 2.8% versus the prior year, with a 2.1% decline in organic sales. GAAP operating profit decreased $175 million while adjusted operating profit increased $47 million and $52 million at constant currency. Adjusted operating profit growth at constant currency was driven by strong performance in the Service segment, lower corporate costs and favorable transactional foreign exchange, partially offset by decline in the New Equipment segment. GAAP operating profit was also impacted by higher non-recurring separation costs, incremental public company standalone costs and non-recurring asset charges. GAAP operating profit margin contracted 100 basis points to 12.8% and adjusted operating profit margin expanded 70 basis points to 15.0%.

In the fourth quarter, net sales of $1.5 billion increased 7.3% with a 4.8% increase in organic sales. Organic sales were up 17.7% and 5.4% in the Americas and EMEA, respectively, partially offset by a 3.8% decline in Asia.

GAAP operating profit decreased $1 million to $80 million. Adjusted operating profit increased $8 million to $90 million as higher volume and material productivity were partially offset by unfavorable rate driven by incremental channel investments in China, field inefficiencies, price/mix and higher bad debt expense. GAAP operating profit was also impacted by incremental public company standalone costs and higher restructuring costs. GAAP operating profit margin contracted 50 basis points and adjusted operating profit margin expanded 20 basis points. 

New Equipment orders were down 3.5% at constant currency as decline in the Americas was partially offset by growth in EMEA and Asia. Orders in China were strong, up approximately 10%. New equipment backlog at constant currency increased 2% versus prior year.

Full year net sales declined 4.9% with a 4.0% organic decline. GAAP operating profit declined $75 million and adjusted operating profit declined $54 million as strong material productivity and cost containment actions were more than offset by the impact of lower volume and unfavorable rate from under-absorption, field inefficiencies, price/mix and higher bad debt expense. GAAP operating profit was also impacted by incremental public company standalone costs and higher restructuring costs. GAAP and adjusted operating profit margin contracted 110 basis points and 60 basis points, respectively.

GAAP operating profit decreased $1 million to $421 million. Adjusted operating profit of $442 million increased $23 million and $8 million at constant currency as the benefit from productivity was partially offset by the impact from lower volume.

Full year net sales declined 1.1% with a 0.7% organic decline. GAAP operating profit increased $8 million and adjusted operating profit increased $59 million as the benefit from productivity and cost containment actions more than offset the impact from lower volume and higher bad debt expense.

Fourth quarter cash from operations of $309 million decreased $145 million. Fourth quarter free cash flow decreased $169 million to $238 million as working capital headwinds, timing of pension contributions and tax payments and a $26 million increase in capital expenditures was partially offset by higher GAAP net income.

Full year cash from operations of $1.5 billion increased $11 million. Full year free cash flow decreased $27 million to $1.3 billion as lower GAAP net income, including higher separation costs and interest expense, and a $38 million increase in capital expenditures was partially offset by favorable working capital performance and other operating activities.

*Note: When we provide outlook for organic sales, adjusted operating profit, adjusted EPS, adjusted effective tax rate and free cash flow on a forward-looking basis, a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP expectations and the corresponding GAAP measures generally is not available without unreasonable effort. See "Use and Definitions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for additional information.

Use and Definitions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Otis Worldwide Corporation ("Otis") reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under GAAP with certain non-GAAP financial information. The non-GAAP information presented provides investors with additional useful information, but should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for the related GAAP measures. Moreover, other companies may define non-GAAP measures differently, which limits the usefulness of these measures for comparisons with such other companies. We encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures (referenced in this press release) to the corresponding amounts prepared in accordance with GAAP appears in the attached tables. These tables provide additional information as to the items and amounts that have been excluded from the adjusted measures. 

Organic sales, adjusted selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense, earnings before interest taxes and depreciation ("EBITDA"), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating profit, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share ("EPS"), adjusted effective tax rate and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures.

Organic sales represents consolidated net sales (a GAAP measure), excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, acquisitions and divestitures completed in the preceding twelve months and other significant items of a non-recurring and/or nonoperational nature ("other significant items"). Management believes organic sales is a useful measure in providing period-to-period comparisons of the results of the Company's ongoing operational performance.

Adjusted SG&A expense represents SG&A expense (a GAAP measure), excluding restructuring costs, other significant items and allocated costs for certain functions and services previously performed by United Technologies Corporation ("UTC") prior to our separation ("UTC allocated costs") and including estimated standalone public company costs, as though Otis' operations had been conducted independently from UTC ("standalone costs"). Standalone costs for the 2019 fiscal year are based on quarterly estimates determined during Otis' annual planning process for the 2020 fiscal year.

Adjusted operating profit represents income from continuing operations (a GAAP measure), excluding restructuring costs, other significant items and allocated costs for certain functions and UTC allocated costs and including estimated standalone public company costs.

Adjusted net income represents net income from continuing operations (a GAAP measure), excluding restructuring costs and other significant items and UTC allocated costs and including estimated standalone public company costs, estimated adjustments to non-service pension expense, net interest expense and income tax expense as if Otis was a standalone public company ("standalone operating income adjustments"). Adjusted EPS represents diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (a GAAP measure), adjusted for the per share impact of restructuring, other significant items and standalone operating income adjustments.

The adjusted effective tax rate represents the effective tax rate (a GAAP measure) adjusted for the tax impact of restructuring costs, significant items and the tax impact of the additional adjustments (estimated standalone public company costs, interest expense and non-service pension expense).

EBITDA represents net income from operations (a GAAP measure), adjusted for noncontrolling interests, income tax expense, net interest expense, non-service pension expense and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA, as calculated above, adjusted for the impact of restructuring, other significant items and UTC allocated costs, including estimated standalone public company costs. Management believes that adjusted SG&A, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating profit, adjusted net income, adjusted EPS and the adjusted effective tax rate are useful measures in providing period-to-period comparisons of the results of the Company's ongoing operational performance as if it had been a standalone public company.

Additionally, GAAP financial results include the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates ("AFX"). We use the non-GAAP measure "at constant currency" or "CFX" to show changes in our financial results without giving effect to period-to-period currency fluctuations. Under U.S. GAAP, income statement results are translated in U.S. dollars at the average exchange rate for the period presented. Management believes that this non-GAAP measure is useful in providing period-to-period comparisons of the results of the Company's ongoing operational performance.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents cash flow from operations (a GAAP measure) less capital expenditures. Management believes free cash flow is a useful measure of liquidity and an additional basis for assessing Otis' ability to fund its activities, including the financing of acquisitions, debt service, repurchases of common stock and distribution of earnings to shareholders.

When we provide our expectations for organic sales, adjusted operating profit, adjusted net income, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted EPS and free cash flow on a forward-looking basis, a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP expectations and the corresponding GAAP measures (expected diluted EPS from continuing operations, operating profit, the effective tax rate, net sales and expected cash flow from operations) generally is not available without unreasonable effort due to potentially high variability, complexity and low visibility as to the items that would be excluded from the GAAP measure in the relevant future period, such as unusual gains and losses, the ultimate outcome of pending litigation, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, the impact and timing of potential acquisitions and divestitures, and other structural changes or their probable significance. The variability of the excluded items may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP results.

Forward-looking statements may include, among other things, statements relating to future sales, earnings, cash flow, results of operations, uses of cash, dividends, share repurchases, tax rates and other measures of financial performance or potential future plans, strategies or transactions of Otis following its separation from United Technologies Corporation, including the estimated costs associated with the separation and distribution and other statements that are not historical facts. All forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. For those statements, Otis claims the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such risks, uncertainties and other factors include, without limitation: (1) the effect of economic conditions in the industries and markets in which Otis and its businesses operate in the U.S. and globally and any changes therein, including financial market conditions, fluctuations in commodity prices, interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates, levels of end market demand in construction, the impact of weather conditions, pandemic health issues (including COVID-19 and its effects, among other things, on global supply, demand, and distribution disruptions as the outbreak continues and results in an increasingly prolonged period of travel, commercial and/or other similar restrictions and limitations), natural disasters and the financial condition of Otis' customers and suppliers; (2) challenges in the development, production, delivery, support, performance and realization of the anticipated benefits of advanced technologies and new products and services; (3) future levels of indebtedness and capital spending and research and development spending; (4) future availability of credit and factors that may affect such availability, including credit market conditions and Otis' capital structure; (5) the timing and scope of future repurchases of Otis' common stock, which, if commenced, may be suspended at any time due to various factors, including market conditions and the level of other investing activities and uses of cash; (6) delays and disruption in delivery of materials and services from suppliers; (7) cost reduction efforts and restructuring costs and savings and other consequences thereof; (8) new business and investment opportunities; (9) the anticipated benefits of moving away from diversification and balance of operations across product lines, regions and industries; (10) the outcome of legal proceedings, investigations and other contingencies; (11) pension plan assumptions and future contributions; (12) the impact of the negotiation of collective bargaining agreements and labor disputes; (13) the effect of changes in political conditions in the U.S., including the new U.S. Administration, and other countries in which Otis and its businesses operate, including the United Kingdom's recent withdrawal from the European Union, on general market conditions, global trade policies and currency exchange rates in the near term and beyond; (14) the effect of changes in tax, environmental, regulatory (including among other things import/export) and other laws and regulations in the U.S. and other countries in which Otis and its businesses operate, including changes as a result of the new U.S. Administration; (15) the ability of Otis to retain and hire key personnel; (16) the scope, nature, impact or timing of acquisition and divestiture activity, including among other things integration of acquired businesses into existing businesses and realization of synergies and opportunities for growth and innovation and incurrence of related costs; (17) the expected benefits of the separation and the timing thereof; (18) the determination by the Internal Revenue Service and other tax authorities that the distribution or certain related transactions should be treated as taxable transactions; (19) risks associated with indebtedness incurred as a result of financing transactions undertaken in connection with the separation; (20) the risk that dis-synergy costs, costs of restructuring transactions and other costs incurred in connection with the separation will exceed Otis' estimates; and (21) the impact of the separation on Otis' businesses, resources, systems, procedures and controls, diversion of management's attention and the impact on relationships with customers, suppliers, employees and other business counterparties. The above list of factors is not exhaustive or necessarily in order of importance. For additional information on identifying factors that may cause actual results to vary from those stated in forward-looking statements, see Otis' registration statements on Form 10 and Form S-3 and the reports of Otis on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K filed with or furnished to the SEC from time to time. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and Otis assumes no obligation to update or revise such statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.

- Public company standalone costs represent estimated costs such as personnel costs, risk management and incentive compensation that have been incurred and are reflected in results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 and are not adjusted. For the quarter ended and year ended December 31, 2019, these standalone costs have been included in the adjustments, as though Otis' operations had been conducted independently from our former parent UTC.

2 

- Otis issued debt and began to incur interest expenses in February 2020 associated with the debt issuance.  The current quarter and year-to-date actual interest expense incurred has been reflected in the comparative period in 2019 as though Otis incurred those expenses in the prior year.

3 

- Non-service pension included in GAAP net income attributable to Otis includes amounts associated with Otis' participation in our former parent' UTC's retained pension plans. The amounts related to these plans are removed from Otis' results in 2019, as though Otis' operations had been conducted independently from UTC.
