NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

    The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements at June 30, 2001 and for the quarters and six-month periods ended June 30, 2001 and 2000 are unaudited, but in the opinion of management include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods. The results reported in these condensed consolidated financial statements should not necessarily be taken as indicative of results that may be expected for the entire year. The financial information included herein should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes in the Corporation's Annual Report incorporated by reference in Form 10-K for calendar year 2000.

Issuance of Long-Term Debt

    In February 2001, the Corporation issued $500 million of 6.35% unsubordinated, unsecured, nonconvertible notes ("the 6.35% Notes") under a shelf registration filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in December 2000. The 6.35% Notes are due March 1, 2011, with interest payable semiannually commencing September 1, 2001. The Corporation may redeem all or any portion of the 6.35% Notes at any time for a formula-based price determined at the time of the redemption. Proceeds from the issuance were used primarily to repay commercial paper. The proceeds from these commercial paper borrowings were used for working capital and for general corporate purposes, which includes financing acquisitions and repurchases of the Corporation's Common Stock.

Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities

    Effective January 1, 2001, the Corporation adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities," as amended. The standard requires that all derivative instruments be recorded on the balance sheet at fair value. The accounting for the changes in fair value depends on how the derivative is used and designated. Adoption of this standard resulted in a $3 million pre-tax transition gain, recorded in "Financing revenues and other income, net" and reduced shareowners' equity by $7 million, net of tax. The income statement gain recorded at transition was largely offset by a net loss in the first quarter of 2001 associated primarily with derivatives and embedded derivatives that are not designated as hedges and do not cover balance sheet exposures.

    The Corporation is exposed to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates and commodity prices. To manage certain of these exposures, the Corporation uses derivative instruments, including swaps, forward contracts and options. Derivative instruments used by the Corporation in its hedging activities are viewed as risk management tools, involve little complexity and are not used for trading or speculative purposes. The Corporation diversifies the counterparties used and monitors the concentration of risk to limit its counterparty exposure.

Foreign Currency Exposures

    The Corporation’s global presence and large volume of international sales, purchases, investments and borrowings expose it to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. Foreign currency exposures are identified and managed at the operating unit level. Exposures that cannot be naturally offset within an operating unit to an insignificant amount are hedged. The Corporation has foreign currency forward contracts that are designated as hedges of the cash flow variability arising from forecasted foreign-currency-denominated sales and purchases. Gains and losses on those derivatives are recorded in shareowners' equity to the extent they are effective as hedges and reclassified into sales or cost of products sold in the period in which the hedged transaction impacts earnings.

5


    UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION
AND SUBSIDIARIES

    The Corporation also has foreign currency forward contracts and swaps that cover the exposures arising from remeasurement of foreign-currency-denominated receivables, payables and borrowings. The gains and losses on those derivative instruments are reported in earnings and largely offset the transaction gains and losses on remeasurement of the related balance sheet items. The Corporation also has a significant amount of foreign currency net asset exposures. Currently, the Corporation does not hold any derivative contracts that hedge its foreign currency net asset exposures but may consider such strategies in the future.

Interest Rate Exposures

    The Corporation’s long-term debt portfolio consists mostly of fixed-rate instruments. To minimize interest expense, a portion of that portfolio is hedged with interest rate swaps. The hedges are designated as fair value hedges and the gains and losses on the swaps are reported in interest expense, reflecting that portion of interest expense at a variable rate. In addition, from time to time the Corporation issues commercial paper, which creates an exposure to changes in interest rates.

Commodity Exposures

    The Corporation is exposed to volatility in the prices of raw materials used in some of its products and uses forward contracts, in limited circumstances, to hedge a portion of the forecasted purchase of raw materials. The forward contracts are designated as hedges of the cash flow variability that result from the forecasted purchases. Gains and losses on those derivatives are deferred in shareowners' equity to the extent they are effective as hedges and reclassified into cost of products sold in the period in which the hedged transaction impacts earnings.

Year to Date Activity

    At June 30, 2001, the fair value of derivatives held by the Corporation, including those embedded in other contracts, was a $48 million net liability. The non-shareowners' changes in equity associated with hedging activity for the six months ended June 30, 2001 were as follows:

(16)       
=====         

    Of the amount recorded in shareowners' equity, a $32 million pre-tax loss is expected to be reclassified into sales or cost of products sold to reflect the fixed prices obtained from hedging within the next 12 months. Gains and losses recognized in earnings related to the discontinuance of cash flow hedges and ineffectiveness of cash flow hedges during the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2001 were immaterial. All open derivative contracts mature by November 2004.

Non-Shareowners' Changes in Equity

    Non-shareowners' changes in equity include all changes in equity during a period except changes resulting from investments by and distributions to shareowners. A summary of the non-shareowners' changes in equity is provided below.

Investments in Businesses

    During the first six months of 2001, the Corporation invested $310 million, including debt assumed, in the acquisition of businesses. Those investments include Hamilton Sundstrand’s and Pratt & Whitney's second quarter acquisitions of aerospace aftermarket businesses and other smaller industry consolidating transactions, as well as Hamilton Sundstrand's first quarter purchase of Claverham Group LTD. The assets and liabilities of the acquired businesses accounted for under the purchase method were recorded at their fair values at the dates of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of the net assets acquired has been recorded as goodwill and is being amortized over its estimated useful life. The decrease in goodwill in the six-month period of 2001 is primarily associated with adjustments made in the finalization of purchase price allocations for 2000 acquisitions and amortization, partially offset by goodwill recorded on 2001 acquisitions.

    The results of operations of all acquired businesses have been included in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations beginning on the effective date of each acquisition. The pro forma results, assuming these acquisitions had been made at the beginning of the year, would not be materially different from reported results.

    In June 2001, the Financial Accounting Standards Board approved Statements of Financial Accounting Standards No. 141 "Business Combinations" ("SFAS 141") and No. 142 " Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets" ("SFAS 142") which are effective July 1, 2001 and January 1, 2002, respectively, for the Corporation. SFAS 141 requires that the purchase method of accounting be used for all business combinations initiated after June 30, 2001. Under SFAS 142, amortization of goodwill, including goodwill recorded in past business combinations, will discontinue upon adoption of this standard. In addition, goodwill recorded as a result of business combinations completed during the six-month period ending December 31, 2001 will not be amortized.  All goodwill and intangible assets will be tested for impairment in accordance with the provisions of the Statement.   The Corporation is currently reviewing the provisions of SFAS 141 and 142 and assessing the impact of adoption.

Restructuring

    During 1999, the Corporation's operating segments initiated a variety of actions aimed at further strengthening their future profitability and competitive position. Those actions focused principally on rationalizing manufacturing processes and improving the overall level of organizational efficiency, including the removal of management layers. Restructuring charges accrued in 1999 were $842 million before income taxes and minority interests and were expected to result in net reductions of approximately 15,000 salaried and hourly employees and approximately 8 million square feet of facilities.

    The following table summarizes the accrued costs associated with the 1999 restructuring actions by type and related activity through June 30, 2001:

AND SUBSIDIARIES

    The adjustments to the 1999 restructuring liability result from completion of programs for amounts lower than originally estimated and revision of several of the original programs. The $9 million adjustment in the second quarter of 2001 was more than offset by additional restructuring related charges of $36 million that were not accruable or contemplated when the 1999 programs were initiated.

    As of June 30, 2001, reductions of approximately 400 employees and approximately 1.0 million square feet remain under the programs and, therefore, they are substantially complete.

Contingent Liabilities

    There has been no significant change in the Corporation’s material contingencies during 2001. Summarized below, however, are the matters previously described in Notes 1 and 14 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in the Corporation’s Annual Report, incorporated by reference in Form 10-K for calendar year 2000.

Environmental

    The Corporation’s operations are subject to environmental regulation by federal, state and local authorities in the United States and regulatory authorities with jurisdiction over its foreign operations.

    Environmental investigatory, remediation, operating and maintenance costs are accrued when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. The most likely cost to be incurred is accrued based on an evaluation of currently available facts with respect to each individual site, including existing technology, current laws and regulations and prior remediation experience. Where no amount within a range of estimates is more likely, the minimum is accrued. For sites with multiple responsible parties, the Corporation considers its likely proportionate share of the anticipated remediation costs and the ability of the other parties to fulfill their obligations in establishing a provision for those costs. Liabilities with fixed or reliably determinable future cash payments are discounted. Accrued environmental liabilities are not reduced by potential insurance reimbursements. The Corporation periodically reassesses these accrued amounts. Management believes that the likelihood of incurring losses materially in excess of amounts accrued is remote.

    The Corporation has had insurance in force over its history with a number of insurance companies and has litigation seeking indemnity and defense under these insurance policies in relation to its environmental liabilities. The litigation is expected to last several years.

U.S. Government

    The Corporation is now, and believes that in light of the current government contracting environment it will be, the subject of one or more government investigations. If the Corporation or one of its business units were charged with wrongdoing as a result of any of these investigations, they could be suspended from bidding on or receiving awards of new government contracts pending the completion of legal proceedings. If convicted or found liable, the Corporation could be fined and debarred from new government contracting for a period generally not to exceed three years. Any contracts found to be tainted by fraud could be voided by the government.

    The Corporation’s contracts with the government are also subject to audits. Like many defense contractors, the Corporation has received audit reports that recommend that certain contract prices should be reduced to comply with various government regulations. Some of these audit reports involve substantial amounts. The Corporation has made voluntary refunds in those cases it believes appropriate.

UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION
AND SUBSIDIARIES

Other

    The Corporation extends performance and operating cost guarantees beyond its normal warranty and service policies for extended periods on some of its products, particularly commercial aircraft engines. Liability under such guarantees is contingent upon future product performance and durability. The Corporation has accrued its estimated liability that may result under these guarantees.

    The Corporation also has other commitments and contingent liabilities related to legal proceedings and matters arising out of the normal course of business.

    The Corporation has accrued for environmental investigatory, remediation, operating and maintenance costs, performance guarantees and other litigation and claims based on management’s estimate of the probable outcome of these matters. While it is possible that the outcome of these matters may differ from the recorded liability, management believes that resolution of these matters will not have a material impact on the Corporation’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

    With respect to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial information of United Technologies Corporation for the quarters and six-month periods ended June 30, 2001 and 2000, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP ("PricewaterhouseCoopers") reported that they have applied limited procedures in accordance with professional standards for a review of such information. However, their separate report dated July 18, 2001, appearing below, states that they did not audit and they do not express an opinion on that unaudited condensed consolidated financial information. PricewaterhouseCoopers has not carried out any significant or additional audit tests beyond those which would have been necessary if their report had not been included. Accordingly, the degree of reliance on their report on such information should be restricted in light of the limited nature of the review procedures applied. PricewaterhouseCoopers is not subject to the liability provisions of section 11 of the Securities Act of 1933 ("the Act") for their report on the unaudited condensed consolidated financial information because that report is not a "report" or a "part" of a registration statement prepared or certified by PricewaterhouseCoopers within the meaning of sections 7 and 11 of the Act.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS

To the Shareowners of
United Technologies Corporation

    We have reviewed the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of operations of United Technologies Corporation and consolidated subsidiaries for the quarters and six-months ended June 30, 2001, and 2000, the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows for the six-months ended June 30, 2001 and 2000, and the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2001. This financial information is the responsibility of the Corporation's management.

    We conducted our review in accordance with standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. A review of interim financial information consists principally of applying analytical procedures to financial data and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.

    Based on our review, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the accompanying condensed consolidated financial information for it to be in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

    We previously audited in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2000, and the related consolidated statements of operations, of changes in shareowners' equity and of cash flows for the year then ended (not presented herein), and in our report dated January 18, 2001, we expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated financial statements. In our opinion, the information set forth in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2000, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the consolidated balance sheet from which it has been derived.

Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Position

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

    The Corporation's operations are classified into four principal operating segments: Otis, Carrier, Pratt & Whitney and Flight Systems. Otis and Carrier serve customers in the commercial and residential property industries. Carrier also serves commercial and transport refrigeration customers. Pratt & Whitney and the Flight Systems segment, which includes Sikorsky Aircraft ("Sikorsky") and Hamilton Sundstrand, primarily serve commercial and government customers in the aerospace industry.

    For discussion of the Corporation's business environment, refer to the discussion of "Business Environment" in the Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Position in the Corporation's Annual Report incorporated by reference in Form 10-K for calendar year 2000. Significant changes in the Corporation’s business environment during the first six months of 2001 are discussed below.

    As worldwide businesses, the Corporation’s operations are affected by global and regional economic factors. During the first six months of 2001, weaker European and Asian currencies had a negative impact on the Corporation's consolidated results. In addition, the North American economy is currently experiencing a period of reduced growth, presenting challenges to the Corporation’s businesses operating in this economy. However, in general, the diversity of the Corporation's businesses and global market presence have helped limit the impact of any one industry or the economy of any single country on the consolidated results.

    There have been no other significant changes in the Corporation’s business environment during the first six months of 2001.

RESULTS OF CONTINUING OPERATIONS

    Consolidated revenues increased $371 million (5%) to $7.3 billion and $652 million (5%) to $14.0 billion in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to the same periods in 2000. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation, consolidated revenues increased 8% and 7% in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001. The increases primarily reflect the purchase of Specialty Equipment Companies in the fourth quarter of 2000 and growth in the ongoing businesses of  Pratt & Whitney, Flight Systems and Otis.

    Financing revenues and other income, net, decreased $18 million and $27 million in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. The decreases reflect interest income recorded in the second quarter of 2000 related to prior period income tax benefits resulting from a second quarter 2000 industry related court decision.

    Gross margin as a percentage of sales increased 1.2 percentage points to 28.6% in the second quarter of 2001 compared with 27.4% in the second quarter of 2000. The ratio increased nine-tenths of a percent to 27.9% in the six-month period of 2001 compared to the same period of 2000, principally as a result of previous and ongoing cost reduction actions.

   Research and development spending increased $29 million (9%) and $12 million (2%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. The second quarter increase is primarily associated with Pratt & Whitney, reflecting the variable nature of engineering development program schedules. The six month increase reflects increases at Carrier and International Fuel Cells. As a percentage of sales, research and development was 4.7% and 4.6% in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 as compared to 4.5% and 4.7% in the same periods of 2000. Research and development is expected to remain at approximately 5% of sales in 2001.

    12


UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION
AND SUBSIDIARIES

    Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $34 million (4%) and $38 million (2%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. The increase is related to the impact of acquisitions, primarily at Carrier, partially offset by a decrease resulting from previous and ongoing cost reduction actions. As a percentage of sales, these expenses were 11.3% and 11.6% in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 as compared to 11.5% and 11.9% in the same periods of 2000.

    Interest expense increased $16 million (17%) and $37 million (21%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. The increase is primarily related to the February 2001 issuance of $500 million of 6.35% Notes due 2011 and the November 2000 issuance of $500 million of 7.125% Notes due 2010.

    The effective income tax rate was 29.7% and 30.0% in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 as compared to 30.5% for the same periods of 2000, excluding the second quarter 2000 discrete items discussed below. The Corporation has continued to lower its effective income tax rate by implementing tax reduction strategies.

    The effective income tax rate for the second quarter and six-month period of 2000 including all tax items was 32.1% and 31.4%. These rates reflect the impact of the second quarter 2000 enactment of Connecticut tax law changes and the related revaluation of the Corporation’s state deferred tax asset. In addition, the Corporation recognized income tax benefits for prior periods and related interest income in the second quarter of 2000 associated with an industry related court decision.

    During the second half of 2001, the Corporation expects to recognize benefits from a favorable settlement of tax claims related to prior periods. This benefit will likely be used to fund further cost reduction and productivity improvement actions.

Restructuring and Other Costs

    As described in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, the Corporation’s operating segments initiated a variety of programs in 1999 aimed at further strengthening their future profitability and competitive position. The 1999 programs totaled $1,120 million, before income taxes and minority interests, and included accrued restructuring charges of $842 million, related charges of $141 million that were not accruable when initiated, and charges associated with product development and aircraft systems integration and non-product purchasing.

    In February 2000, a Federal District Court issued an injunction relative to certain restructuring actions planned by Pratt & Whitney that would move work from Connecticut to Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma. After a subsequent ruling by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, the injunction remains in place until the end of the Collective Bargaining Agreement in December 2001. In February 2001, Pratt & Whitney agreed, for the life of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, to retain this work within the bargaining unit. The Corporation does not believe that this outcome will materially impact the Corporation's restructuring program.

    During the first six months of 2001, the Corporation incurred and recognized approximately $80 million of costs that were not accruable or contemplated when the 1999 programs were initiated. In the current year, the Corporation has incurred pre-tax cash outflows of approximately $140 million associated with

13


UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION
AND SUBSIDIARIES

the 1999 program accruals and the additional costs. These cash flows are funded by cash generated from operations. The savings associated with these actions are expected to offset the additional costs, resulting in a net benefit in 2001. Recurring savings, associated primarily with a net reduction in workforce and facility closures, are expected to increase through 2002 to approximately $750 million pre-tax annually, primarily benefiting cost of products sold.

Segment Review

    Revenues, operating profits and operating profit margins of the Corporation's principal operating segments include the results of all majority-owned subsidiaries, consistent with the management reporting of these businesses. Adjustments to reconcile segment reporting to consolidated results are included in "Eliminations and other," which also includes certain small subsidiaries. Results for the quarters and six-month periods ended June 30, 2001 and 2000 are as follows:

    Otis revenues increased $3 million and $8 million in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to the same periods of 2000. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, revenues in the second quarter and six-month period increased 6%, reflecting increases in all regions except Latin America. The increases were led by Europe and North America and related to increased service and new equipment sales. The negative foreign currency impact was primarily due to European and Asian currencies.

    Otis operating profits increased $29 million (15%) and $57 million (15%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, operating profit increased 22% and 21% in the second quarter and six-month period, reflecting profit improvements in all regions primarily due to previous cost reduction actions.

    Carrier revenues increased $91 million (4%) and $330 million (8%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation, revenues in the second quarter and six-month period increased 7% and 11%, reflecting the acquisition of Specialty Equipment Companies during the fourth quarter of 2000 and growth in international markets. The improvements were partially offset by continued weakness in the commercial refrigeration business and North American transport refrigeration business. The negative foreign currency impact was primarily due to Asian and European currencies.

    Carrier’s operating profits increased $4 million (1%) and $12 million (3%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation, operating profits increased 5% and 7% in the second quarter and six-month periods due primarily to the acquisition of Specialty Equipment Companies, strong performance in the European and Asian HVAC businesses and a purchasing related settlement. The increases were offset by lower operating performance in the commercial and North American transport refrigeration businesses and market weakness in the North American HVAC business.

    Pratt & Whitney revenues increased $167 million (9%) and $221 million (6%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. The increases were primarily due to increased shipments of industrial gas turbines at Pratt & Whitney Power Systems and increased volume at Pratt & Whitney Canada, offset partially by an expected decline in government funded development for large military engines related to program timing.

    Pratt & Whitney operating profits increased $68 million (24%) and $129 million (23%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000, primarily reflecting increased shipments and higher profit at Pratt & Whitney Canada and Pratt & Whitney Power Systems and continued cost reductions.

    Flight Systems revenues increased $136 million (11%) and $133 million (5%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. The increases were primarily associated with Hamilton Sundstrand's aerospace business, which more than offset some weakness in the industrial businesses.  Additionally, the second quarter increase reflects increased volume at Sikorsky.

    Flight Systems operating profits increased $39 million (28%) and $69 million (25%) in the second quarter and six-month period of 2001 compared to 2000. The increases reflect Hamilton Sundstrand's revenue increases noted above and business improvements at Sikorsky.

LIQUIDITY AND FINANCIAL POSITION

    Management assesses the Corporation’s liquidity in terms of its overall ability to generate cash to fund its operating and investing activities. Significant factors affecting the management of liquidity are cash flows generated from operating activities, capital expenditures, investments in businesses, customer financing requirements, Common Stock repurchases, adequate bank lines of credit and financial flexibility to attract long-term capital with satisfactory terms.

Debt to total capitalization 38%       39%       38%      
Net debt to total capitalization 33%       35%       34%      

    Net cash flows provided by operating activities increased $236 million in the first six months of 2001 compared to the corresponding period in 2000. The increase reflects improved operating performance, in part due to lower restructuring charges in 2001.

    Cash used in investing activities increased $121 million in the first six months of 2001 compared with the same period of 2000, primarily due to increased customer financing assets and capital expenditures. Cash spending for investments in businesses for the first six months of 2001 was $276 million and includes Hamilton Sundstrand’s and Pratt & Whitney's second quarter aerospace aftermarket purchases and other smaller industry consolidating transactions, as well as Hamilton Sundstrand’s first quarter acquisition of Claverham Group LTD. Total investments in businesses in 2001 are expected to be at least $1 billion.

    Customer financing activity was a net use of cash of $159 million in the first six months of 2001 compared with a $14 million net use of cash in the first six months of 2000, primarily due to customer generated requirements for financing. While the Corporation expects that 2001 customer financing activity will be a net use of funds, actual funding is subject to usage under existing customer financing commitments during the remainder of the year. The Corporation had financing and rental commitments of $1.8 billion related to commercial aircraft, compared to $1.2 billion at December 31, 2000.

    Net cash flows used in financing activities decreased $251 million in the first six months of 2001 compared with the same period of 2000, due primarily to a decrease in repurchases of common stock. In addition, the net cash flows reflect the Corporation's issuance of $500 million of 6.35% Notes in February 2001 under shelf registration statements previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In May 2001, the Corporation registered an additional $1.5 billion of debt and equity securities under shelf registration statements on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. As a result, the Corporation can issue up to $2 billion of additional debt and equity securities under shelf registrations on file with the Commission.

    The Corporation repurchased $365 million of Common Stock, representing 4.8 million shares, in the first six months of 2001. In June 2001, the Corporation announced that the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to 20 million shares. The new authorization replaces previous share repurchase authority. The share repurchase programs continue to be a use of the Corporation’s cash flows and have more than offset the dilutive effect resulting from the issuance of stock and options under stock-based employee benefit programs. At June 30, 2001, the Corporation was authorized to repurchase a total of 19.5 million shares.

UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION
AND SUBSIDIARIES

    The Corporation manages its worldwide cash requirements considering available funds among the many subsidiaries through which it conducts its business and the cost effectiveness with which those funds can be accessed. The repatriation of cash balances from certain of the Corporation's subsidiaries could have adverse tax consequences; however, those balances are generally available without legal restrictions to fund ordinary business operations. The Corporation has and will continue to transfer cash from those subsidiaries to the parent and to other international subsidiaries when it is cost effective to do so.

    Management believes that its existing cash position and other available sources of liquidity are sufficient to meet current and anticipated requirements for the foreseeable future. Although uncertainties in acquisition spending could cause modest variations at times, management anticipates that the level of debt-to-capital will remain generally consistent with recent levels.

New Accounting Guidance

    Effective January 1, 2001, the Corporation adopted Statements of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities," as amended. See Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for further discussion.

    In June 2001, the Financial Accounting Standards Board approved Statements of Financial Accounting Standards No. 141 "Business Combinations" ("SFAS 141") and No. 142 "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets" ("SFAS 142") which are effective July 1, 2001 and January 1, 2002, respectively, for the Corporation. SFAS 141 requires that the purchase method of accounting be used for all business combinations initiated after June 30, 2001. Under SFAS 142, amortization of goodwill, including goodwill recorded in past business combinations, will discontinue upon adoption of this standard. In addition, goodwill recorded as a result of business combinations completed during the six-month period ending December 31, 2001 will not be amortized.  All goodwill and intangible assets will be tested for impairment in accordance with the provisions of the Statement.   The Corporation is currently reviewing the provisions of SFAS 141 and SFAS 142 and assessing the impact of adoption.

    Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

    There has been no significant change in the Corporation's exposure to market risk during the first six months of 2001. For discussion of the Corporation's exposure to market risk, refer to Item 7A, Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk, contained in the Corporation's Annual Report incorporated by reference in Form 10-K for the calendar year 2000.

Part II – Other Information

    Item 1.    Legal Proceedings

    As previously reported, a jury in Chromalloy Gas Turbine Corporation v. United Technologies Corporation, No. 95-CI-12541, a Texas state action, found that Pratt & Whitney did not monopolize any relevant market but did willfully attempt to monopolize an unspecified market. In May 1997, the court entered a Final Judgment denying Chromalloy’s request for damages, injunctive relief and declaratory relief. In October 1998, the Texas Fourth Court of Appeals affirmed the decision of the trial court, declining to grant injunctive relief to Chromalloy. In November 1999, the appellate court denied Chromalloy’s motions for rehearing and rehearing en banc. In March 2000, Chromalloy filed a petition for review with the Texas Supreme Court. In December 2000, the Texas Supreme Court denied Chromalloy’s petition for review and in March 2001, the Texas Supreme Court denied Chromalloy’s Motion for Rehearing.

    Except as noted above, there have been no material developments in legal proceedings. For a description of previously reported legal proceedings, refer to Part I, Item 3. Legal Proceedings of the Corporation’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2000.

    The Corporation does not believe that resolution of the foregoing legal matters will have a material adverse effect upon the Corporation’s competitive position, results of operations, cash flow or financial position.

NONEMPLOYEE DIRECTOR STOCK OPTION PLAN

Amendment 2

Whereas , the United Technologies Corporation Nonemployee Director Stock Option Plan (the "Plan") provides for an annual grant of non-qualified stock options with a value of $70,000, as determined by the Black Scholes Valuation Model; and

Whereas the Board of Directors has determined that the number of stock options shall be subject to further adjustment based on an assessment of relevant benchmark data concerning compensation for nonemployee directors in a manner similar to the utilization of benchmark data for calculating the number of options to be awarded under the Corporation's Long Term Incentive Plan;

Now therefore, the Plan is hereby amended effective April 27, 2001 as follows:

1.    Section 5(a) of the Plan is amended and restated as follows:

5.    Grant of Stock Options

(a)    On the date of the Corporation’s annual meeting of shareowners in each year for so long as the Plan remains in effect (the "Grant Date"), each nonemployee who is elected a director at such meeting, or whose term of office shall continue after the date of such meeting, automatically shall be granted options to purchase a number of shares of Common Stock (an "Option"). The number of Options so awarded shall be equal in value to $70,000, as determined by the Black Scholes Valuation Model, utilizing the same assumptions then employed by the Corporation for the valuation of stock options under its other long-term incentive plans. The valuation shall be calculated immediately prior to the annual meeting on a date determined by the Committee. The number of Options so determined, shall be subject to further adjustment by the Committee based on its evaluation of relevant benchmark data concerning nonemployee directors compensation, if the Committee determines that: (i) an adjustment is appropriate on the basis of the benchmark data; and (ii) any such adjustment is consistent with the manner that benchmark data relative to executive compensation is utilized in determining the number of stock options granted under the United Technologies Corporation Long Term Incentive Plan. The number of Options to be granted annually shall no longer be subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 8 of the Plan, provided however, that once granted, Options shall continue to be adjusted automatically without further action by the Committee or the Board in accordance with Section 8 of the Plan to prevent the dilution or enlargement of the rights of Participants.

DIRECTORS’ RESTRICTED STOCK/UNIT PROGRAM

    Incumbent non-employee directors of United Technologies received on January 2, 1992, a one-time grant of United Technologies Corporation restricted common stock equal to 200 shares for each year of service remaining between that date and their scheduled retirement date, but in no case exceeding 1,000 shares per director. Directors who joined the Board after January 2, 1992, received a one time grant of 1,000 restricted shares or deferred stock units (described below), adjusted for any subsequent stock splits. Shares and units vest in increments of 200 shares or units on the date of each Annual Shareowners Meeting, but may not be transferred by the director until such director retires or resigns from the Board. If a director leaves the Board because of a "change of control" or a "restructuring event" as defined by the United Technologies Corporation Long Term Incentive Plan, because of death or disability, or when a director retires or resigns to accept full time employment with a charitable or non-profit organization or with state, federal or local government, all shares or deferred stock units not previously vested will immediately vest and restrictions on transfer will immediately lapse. Should the director leave the Board for any other reason before all restricted shares and units vest, the non-vested shares and units will be forfeited.

    Any foreign national who serves as a director is eligible to receive a one-time grant of deferred restricted share units in lieu of restricted shares, each unit being equal in value to a share of common stock. Vesting provisions for units are the same as restricted stock. At retirement the then-current value of a share of common stock times the number of units will be payable in cash or shares. Each unit and share of restricted stock will, on a quarterly basis, generate a cash payment equal to the dividend paid on a share of common stock.

    Effective April 28, 2000, all non-employee directors who join the Board receive a one-time grant of deferred stock units equal in value to $100,000. The number of deferred restricted stock units will be based on the closing price of United Technologies Corporation common stock on the date the director is elected to the Board. The units will continue to vest in 20% increments on the date of the Annual Shareowners Meeting, will be payable in cash or shares and will be subject to the terms and conditions set forth above.
