• Third-quarter revenue of $2.98 billion was up 13 percent from the third quarter of 2010.
• Earnings from continuing operations were $71 million, or $0.38 per share.
• Adjusted earnings from continuing operations were $1.17 per share, up 8 percent from the third quarter of 2010.

ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT) today reported 2011 third-quarter revenue of $2.98 billion and income from continuing operations of $71 million. Excluding the impact of separation costs and other adjustments, income from continuing operations for the quarter was $218 million, or $1.17 per share, compared with $200 million or $1.08 per share, in the prior-year period.

"We are proud of our team for remaining focused on serving our customers to deliver this strong performance, even while executing on the separation of ITT into three strongly positioned, independent companies. I want to thank all of our employees for their diligence and hard work over the last several months," said Steve Loranger, ITT's chairman, president and chief executive officer. "The transformation of ITT and the launch of ITT Exelis and Xylem are on track to occur on October 31. The necessary costs to successfully separate into three companies are in line with our previous forecast, and all three new companies are nicely capitalized for future growth."

Third-Quarter Segment Results
Defense and Information Solutions

• Third-quarter 2011 revenue was $1.5 billion, an increase of 12 percent compared with the third quarter of 2010. The increase reflects gains in exercised options in key Middle East service programs in the Mission Systems business and strong performance in non-Department of Defense programs in the Information Systems business.
• Organic orders increased 12 percent to $1.7 billion from the comparable period in 2010. The increase was driven by two large Middle East programs which together comprised more than $500 million in organic orders.
• Third-quarter operating income, which included $4 million of separation-related costs, was $178 million, flat compared with the same period in 2010. Adjusted operating margin for the period declined 110 basis points compared with the same period in 2010. The segment continued to experience operating income compression as a result of the mix of products and services.

Fluid Technology

• Third-quarter 2011 Fluid Technology revenue of $1.1 billion was up 17 percent on a year-over-year basis, driven by both acquisitions and organic growth across all businesses.
• Organic revenue (defined as total revenue excluding foreign exchange and acquisition impacts) was up 8 percent, driven by significant activity in the chemical, oil and gas, mining and emerging markets in the Industrial Process business, as well as strength in global dewatering. Organic orders for the segment were up 13 percent, largely driven by growth in the Industrial Process business, combined with strong dewatering orders.
• Third-quarter operating income, which included $22 million of separation-related costs, was $144 million, up 25 percent from the comparable prior-year period, driven by organic revenue growth, strong productivity performance and acquisitions, which more than offset direct material cost increases and strategic investments. Adjusted operating margin for the period increased 300 basis points compared with the same period in 2010.

Motion and Flow Control

• Third-quarter 2011 revenue for the Motion and Flow Control segment grew 6 percent, to $386 million, on a comparable prior-year basis, as the business experienced strong demand in the automotive, aerospace, medical and rail markets. These growth factors more than offset lower sales in the Interconnect Solutions business.
• Organic orders were up 1 percent, driven primarily by growth in aerospace, automotive, and oil and gas applications that offset weaker connectors demand.
• Third-quarter operating income, which included $1 million of separation-related costs, was $49 million, up 7 percent from the same period in 2010, as productivity gains, volume and pricing more than offset increased commodity costs. Adjusted operating margin for the period showed a 30 basis point increase over the same period in 2010.

Other Items
In addition to spinoff-related costs of $93 million on an after-tax basis, as previously disclosed ITT recognized after-tax asbestos-related costs of $26 million in the third quarter of 2011, resulting from an annual update of the underlying assumptions used in liability and asset estimates.

Other special items included a charge of $14 million for various tax-related items, primarily a deferred tax adjustment, and foreign currency translation losses of $14 million generally pertaining to legacy transactions.

As a result of third-quarter amendments to the U.S. retirement programs, ITT Corporation re-measured its projected benefit obligations and plan assets for certain U.S. and international pension plans. The re-measurement was as of September 30, 2011, and resulted in an increase to ITT's net pension liability of $661 million. The re-measured plans were primarily the salaried retirement plan and excess compensation plan, which will transfer to ITT Exelis upon completion of the spinoff on October 31. This increase in pension liability is not expected to result in a material impact on the future ITT Exelis financial condition.

Supplemental information on ITT's third-quarter 2011 earnings is posted at itt.com/investors.

ITT Transformation
Efforts to separate ITT into three independent publicly traded companies continued to progress toward completion on October 31, 2011. Transformation costs remain in line with previously provided guidance. The future defense company, to be named ITT Exelis (NYSE: XLS), and the future water company, which will be named Xylem (NYSE: XYL), along with ITT (NYSE: ITT), will each begin regular-way trading on the New York Stock Exchange on November 1, 2011.
