Caterpillar Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported total sales and revenues of $14,150 million against $14,621 million a year ago. Operating profit was $1,475 million against $1,557 million a year ago. Consolidated profit before taxes was $1,420 million against $1,353 million a year ago. Profit of consolidated companies was $1,001 million against $966 million a year ago. Profit was $999 million or $1.57 per share diluted against $960 million or $1.45 per share diluted a year ago. For the six months, the company reported total sales and revenues of $27,391 million against $27,831 million a year ago. Operating profit was $2,873 million against $2,775 million a year ago. Consolidated profit before taxes was $2,762 million against $2,480 million a year ago. Profit of consolidated companies was $1,925 million against $1,847 million a year ago. Profit was $1,921 million or $3.00 per share diluted against $1,840 million or $2.76 per share diluted a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $4,134 million against $4,593 million a year ago. Capital expenditures – excluding equipment leased to others was $710 million against $1,387 million a year ago. The updated outlook for 2014 sales and revenues is a range of $54 to $56 billion. The previous outlook for sales and Revenue was $56 billion in a range of plus or minus 5% ($53.2 to $58.8 billion). The range of expectations is tighter and the mid-point of the outlook is slightly lower. Most of the change in the mid-point of the range is in Construction Industries and reflects weaker sales in China, the CIS and in the Africa/Middle East region. Despite a slightly lower mid-point of the sales and revenues outlook the company is increasing its 2014 profit per share outlook. To provide a better understanding of the company's expectations for 2014 profit, the profit outlook is being provided with and without anticipated restructuring costs. The expectation for restructuring costs in 2014 is now about $400 million--the bottom end of the $400 to $500 million range that was previously expected. With sales and revenues at $55 billion, the mid-point of the outlook range, the revised profit outlook for 2014 including restructuring costs of about $400 million is $5.75 per share, an improvement from the previous outlook of $5.55 per share. Excluding restructuring costs, the profit outlook is $6.20 per share, an increase from the previous outlook of $6.10 per share. The company expected sales and revenues in the third quarter to be similar to the first quarter of 2014 and fourth quarter sales to be more in line with the second quarter of 2014. In terms of profit per share, with lower sales in the third quarter, it'll likely be the weakest profit quarter of the year. And with higher sales in the fourth quarter, profit per share should be similar to the average of the first and second quarters of 2014.
