Note: Prior periods have been revised to reflect the current segment presentation which excludes acquisition accounting adjustments and includes additional corporate expense allocations.

Collins Aerospace had fourth quarter 2020 adjusted sales of $4,388 million, down 32 percent versus the prior year. Commercial OE was down 41 percent and commercial aftermarket was down 48 percent, while military was up 1 percent. Excluding the impact of the Military GPS and Space ISR divestitures, military was up 7 percent in the quarter. The decrease in commercial sales was driven primarily by the current environment which has resulted in lower flight hours, aircraft fleet utilization and commercial OEM deliveries, as well as the impact of the 737 MAX. This was slightly offset by higher sales across key military platforms.

Collins Aerospace recorded adjusted operating profit of $89 million in the quarter, down 92 percent versus the prior year. The decrease in adjusted operating profit was driven by lower commercial aerospace OEM and aftermarket sales volume, as well as the impact of the Military GPS and Space ISR divestitures. This was partially offset by cost reduction actions and continued synergy capture.

Pratt & Whitney had fourth quarter 2020 adjusted sales of $4,496 million, down 20 percent versus the prior year. Commercial OE was down 46 percent and commercial aftermarket was down 32 percent, while military was up 18 percent. The decrease in commercial sales was primarily due to a significant reduction in shop visits and related spare part sales, and commercial engine deliveries principally driven by the current environment. This was slightly offset by higher F-135 engine sales and aftermarket growth across key military platforms.

Pratt & Whitney recorded adjusted operating income of $105 million in the quarter, down 78 percent versus the prior year. The decrease in adjusted operating profit was primarily driven by lower commercial aerospace sales volume and unfavorable mix. This was partially offset by cost reduction actions and gross margin drop through on higher military volume.
