Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) announced today its third-quarter 2012 results highlighted by sales of $2.2 billion, up 3 percent from the third quarter of 2011 and driven by strong demand in its Government segment. These results include an unfavorable currency exchange rate impact to revenues of $42 million, or approximately 2 percent. “We had strong revenue and earnings growth, including record performance in our Government segment,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO of Motorola Solutions. “We expanded operating margins, managed our costs and grew earnings per share 27 percent driven by our operating performance and continued return of capital to shareholders.” GAAP operating earnings in the third quarter of 2012 were $324 million or 15 percent of sales, compared to $254 million or 12.2 percent of sales in the third quarter of 2011. GAAP EPS from continuing operations was $0.72, compared to $0.45 in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating earnings in the third quarter of 2012 were $387 million or 18 percent of sales, compared to $359 million or 17.2 percent of sales in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP EPS from continuing operations was $0.84, compared to $0.66 in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP financial information excludes after-tax expense of approximately $0.12 per diluted share related to share-based compensation expense, intangible assets amortization expense and highlighted items. Details on these Non-GAAP adjustments and the use of Non-GAAP measures are included later in this press release. During the third quarter of 2012, the company generated $182 million in operating cash flow from continuing operations, including the impact of an early pension payment of $72 million. Additionally, the company repurchased $308 million in shares, paid $63 million in dividends and ended the quarter with total cash*** of $3.5 billion. Government segment sales were $1.5 billion, up 12 percent from the year-ago quarter, driven by double-digit growth in North America and solid performance in EMEA and Latin America. GAAP operating earnings were $273 million or 17.9 percent of sales compared to $186 million or 13.7 percent in the year-ago quarter. Non-GAAP operating earnings were $310 million or 20.4 percent of sales compared to $224 million or 16.5 percent in the year-ago quarter. Government highlights: Secured multimillion dollar contracts with the state of Alaska; the state of Ohio; Maui County in Hawaii; Prince George's County in Maryland; York County in South Carolina; the City of Phoenix; the City of Glendale, Calif.; the City of Fort Wayne, Ind.; Rheinbahn public transit in Germany; Wuxi Metro in China; and Codelco Chuquicamata Mining in Chile Continued to expand family of APX™ Project 25 (P25) two-way radios including a new accountability solution for the Motorola Tactical Incident Command Solution, which helps incident commanders accurately and quickly keep track of on-scene operations; the APX 4500 mobile radio, which gives P25 interoperable communications for all first responders; and the APX 3000, which enables undercover officers to use a high-powered concealed portable radio At APCO (Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials) International, Motorola Solutions demonstrated how the company's technology and expertise enhance a safer and thriving Connected City by delivering a comprehensive product portfolio and solutions that better serve – and protect – the Connected Officer, the Connected Patrol Vehicle and the Connected Fire Fighter. All integrated solutions enable our public-safety customers to stay connected and leverage technology with their very challenging jobs Enterprise segment sales were $632 million, down 13 percent from the year-ago quarter, which included the anticipated decline in iDEN sales. GAAP operating earnings were $51 million or 8.1 percent of sales compared to $68 million or 9.4 percent in the year-ago quarter. Non-GAAP operating earnings were $77 million or 12.2 percent of sales compared to $135 million or 18.6 percent in the year-ago quarter. Enterprise highlights: Secured contracts with key customers such as Best Buy, Pharmedium and Flowers Bakery in the United States; Aeon Technology in Shanghai and Grupo Polar Companies in Venezuela Introduced the MC67 mobile computer, an ultra-rugged device that offers HSPA+ WAN, which is targeted at task worker applications in the field such as parcel collection and delivery scanning, inventory management, sales order entry, direct store delivery (DSD) and route accounting Introduced the Wide-Area Network (WAN) version of the ET1 tablet that brings the ‘go-anywhere' familiarity and popularity of a consumer-class user experience to a true enterprise-class device that offers enhanced durability, an optional modular barcode scanner and magnetic stripe reader, hot-swappable battery packs and secure system software Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2012 Outlook The company expects fourth-quarter sales to grow approximately 6 to 7 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2011, with EPS from continuing operations of $0.98 to $1.03. The company is increasing its full-year 2012 outlook for sales growth to 6 to 6.5 percent to reflect revenues for Psion, which Motorola Solutions acquired on Oct. 1, 2012. Our EPS outlook excludes share-based compensation expense, intangible assets amortization expense and charges associated with items of the variety typically highlighted by the company in its quarterly earnings releases. Consolidated GAAP Results A comparison of results from operations is as follows:   Third Quarter(In millions, except per share amounts)   2012   2011 Net sales $2,153   $2,085 Gross margin 1,087 1,055 Operating earnings 324 254 Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes 324 238 Income tax expense 118 83 Earnings from continuing operations** 206 153 Loss from discontinued operations, net of tax - (25) Net earnings $206 $128   Diluted EPS from continuing operations: $0.72 $0.45   Weighted average diluted common shares outstanding   287.4   339.5   Highlighted Items, Share-Based Compensation Expense and Intangible Assets Amortization Expense The table below includes highlighted items, share-based compensation expense and intangible assets amortization expense for the third quarter of 2012.

The conference call will be webcast live with audio and slides at www.motorolasolutions.com/investor. Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information In addition to the GAAP results included in this presentation, Motorola Solutions also has included Non-GAAP measurements of results. We have provided these Non-GAAP measurements to help investors better understand our core operating performance, enhance comparisons of core operating performance from period to period and allow better comparisons of operating performance to our competitors. Among other things, management uses these operating results, excluding the identified items, to evaluate performance of the businesses and to evaluate results relative to certain incentive compensation targets. Management uses operating results excluding these items because it believes this measurement enables it to make better period-to-period evaluations of the financial performance of core business operations. The Non-GAAP measurements are intended only as a supplement to the comparable GAAP measurements and the company compensates for the limitations inherent in the use of Non-GAAP measurements by using GAAP measures in conjunction with the Non-GAAP measurements. As a result, investors should consider these Non-GAAP measurements in addition to, and not in substitution for or as superior to, measurements of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Highlighted items: The company has excluded the effects of highlighted items (and any reversals of highlighted items recorded in prior periods) from its Non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measurements because the company believes that these historical items do not reflect expected future operating earnings or expenses and do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of the company's current operating performance or comparisons to the company's past operating performance. Share-based compensation expense: The company has excluded share-based compensation expense from its Non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measurements. Although share-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees and the company believes such compensation contributed to the revenue earned during the periods presented and also believes it will contribute to the generation of future period revenues, the company continues to evaluate its performance excluding share-based compensation expense primarily because it represents a significant non-cash expense. Share-based compensation expense will recur in future periods. Intangible assets amortization expense: The company has excluded intangible assets amortization expense from its Non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measurements, primarily because it represents a significant non-cash expense and because the company evaluates its performance excluding intangible assets amortization expense. Amortization of intangible assets is consistent in amount and frequency but is significantly affected by the timing and size of the company's acquisitions. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to the company's revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to the company's future period revenues as well. Intangible assets amortization expense will recur in future periods. Details of the above items and reconciliations of the Non-GAAP measurements to the corresponding GAAP measurements can be found at the end of this press release.
