Eaton Reports Record Quarterly Results

In Q2, Eaton's sales were $5.9 billion, a quarterly record and up 13% from Q2 2022, driven by organic sales growth.

Power management company Eaton Corporation has announced its Q2 earnings report. The company said sales in the quarter were $5.9 billion, a quarterly record and up 13% from the second quarter of 2022, driven entirely by organic sales growth.

Segment margins were 21.6%, a quarterly record and a 150-basis point improvement over the second quarter of 2022.

Operating cash flow in the quarter was $851 million and free cash flow was $691 million, up $511 million and $490 million, respectively, over the same period in 2022 and in-line with full year targets.

The company raised its full year adjusted earnings per share guidance to between $8.65 and $8.85, up $0.35 at the midpoint. For the third quarter of 2023, the company anticipates organic growth of 9-11% and adjusted earnings per share of between $2.27 and $2.37.

“Achieving quarterly record adjusted earnings marked the end of a very strong first half of the year. Demand across our markets continues to be strong, propelling backlogs to record levels,” said Craig Arnold, Eaton chairman and chief executive officer. “We’re confident we can achieve our increased guidance for the year and that we remain well positioned to capitalize on reindustrialization in North America and Europe as well as the secular growth drivers of electrification, energy transition and digitalization.”
