Honeywell Chosen for China Project

By: Zacks Equity Research
Honeywell International Inc. (HON - Analyst Report) has been selected to develop and implement China's first smart grid pilot project and feasibility study for managing energy use in commercial buildings.

The pilot will bank on Honeywell's smart grid technology and expertise, which includes automated demand response, advanced energy management and sub-metering.

The company will provide guidance to the state grid and its customers to manage energy supply and demand, automatically adjusting electricity consumption and reducing strain on China's utility infrastructure.

Honeywell is a leading supplier of electronics, consumable hardware, engine controls, environmental controls, landing systems, power systems, propulsion engines, aerospace services and space products and systems for the aerospace industry, including commercial and regional airlines, air cargo carriers, as well as Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of commercial, regional, military aircraft and spacecraft.

Honeywell’s attractive collection of businesses has the potential to earn consistent above-average returns. The company’s focus on working capital management, free cash flow generation and balance sheet strength remain positive attributes in the current weak environment.

The company is a global leader in refrigerants, aerosols and foam-insulation blowing agents used to replace ozone-depleting Chlorofluorocarbon and Hydro chlorofluorocarbons. Those same products also improve the energy efficiency of homes, appliances and commercial refrigeration systems.

The company’s proactive restructuring initiatives have positioned it to navigate better than many of its peers, but we have yet to see signs of stabilization in a number of its major end-markets.

At Automation and Control Systems, the largest segment by revenue, industrial customers are delaying both capital and operating spending across a number of businesses, driven by weakening demand.

Honeywell International Inc. is a diversified technology and manufacturing company, serving customers worldwide with aerospace products and services, control, sensing and security technologies for buildings, homes and industry, turbochargers, automotive products, specialty chemicals, electronic and advanced materials, process technology for refining and petrochemicals and energy-efficient products and solutions for homes, business and transportation. The primary competitors include Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI - Analyst Report) and United Technologies Corporation (UTX - Analyst Report).
