Carrier sales up 8% in 2023

USA: Despite flat fourth quarter sales compared to 2022, Carrier recorded sales for the year 2023 of $22.1bn, an 8% increase on 2022.

Commenting on fourth quarter sales of $5.1bn, Carrier chairman and CEO David Gitlin said “Our fourth quarter results continue to show Carrier’s ability to perform while transforming with strong operating profit growth and EPS up over 30% compared to the prior year.”

Carrier’s 8% sales increase in 2023 included organic sales growth of 3% and a 5% impact from acquisitions and divestitures. Gross margins increased

210 basis points compared to the prior year. GAAP operating profit of $2.3bn decreased 49% due to prior year gains on the sale of Chubb and the acquisition of Toshiba Carrier, while adjusted operating profit increased 11% to $3.2bn. Operating margin decreased due to the prior year impact of the Chubb and Toshiba Carrier-related gains. 

Carrier completed the acquisition of Viessmann Climate Solutions in January and reached definitive agreements to sell both its Global Access Solutions and Commercial Refrigeration businesses for close to $6bn combined. 

“Looking forward to 2024, our solid backlog levels and sustainability leadership position Carrier for another year of strong financial performance,” Gitlin said.
