*Q1 Non-GAAP measures definitions

Adjusted operating income in 2024 is defined as GAAP operating income adjusted for restructuring costs and legacy legal liability. Adjusted operating income in 2023 is defined as GAAP operating income adjusted for restructuring costs, transformation costs, a non-cash adjustment for contingent consideration and merger and acquisition related costs. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures on tables 2, 3 and 4 of the news release.

Adjusted operating margin is defined as the ratio of adjusted operating income divided by net revenues.

Adjusted earnings from continuing operations attributable to Trane Technologies plc (Adjusted net earnings) in 2024 is defined as GAAP earnings from continuing operations attributable to Trane Technologies plc adjusted for net of tax impacts of restructuring costs and legacy legal liability. Adjusted net earnings in 2023 is defined as GAAP earnings from continuing operations attributable to Trane Technologies plc adjusted for net of tax impacts of restructuring costs, transformation costs, a non-cash adjustment for contingent consideration and merger and acquisition related costs. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures on tables 2 and 3 of the news release.

Adjusted continuing EPS in 2024 is defined as GAAP continuing EPS adjusted for net of tax impacts of restructuring costs and legacy legal liability. Adjusted continuing EPS in 2023 is defined as GAAP continuing EPS adjusted for net of tax impacts of restructuring costs, transformation costs, a non-cash adjustment for contingent consideration and merger and acquisition related costs. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures on tables 2 and 3 of the news release.

Adjusted EBITDA in 2024 and 2023 is defined as adjusted operating income adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense and other income / (expense), net. Please refer to the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures on tables 4 and 5 of the news release.

Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as the ratio of adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues.

Adjusted effective tax rate for 2024 is defined as the ratio of income tax expense adjusted for the net tax effect of adjustments for restructuring costs and legacy legal liability divided by adjusted net earnings. Adjusted effective tax rate for 2023 is defined as the ratio of income tax expense adjusted for the net tax effect of adjustments for restructuring costs, transformation costs, a non-cash adjustment for contingent consideration and merger and acquisition related costs divided by adjusted net earnings. This measure allows for a direct comparison of the effective tax rate between periods.

Free cash flow in 2024 is defined as net cash provided by (used in) continuing operating activities adjusted for capital expenditures, cash payments for restructuring costs, legacy legal liability, and merger and acquisition related costs. Free cash flow in 2023 is defined as net cash provided by (used in) continuing operating activities adjusted for capital expenditures, cash payments for restructuring costs, transformation costs and merger and acquisition related costs. Please refer to the free cash flow reconciliation on table 8 of the news release.

Operating leverage is defined as the ratio of the change in adjusted operating income for the current period (e.g. Q1 2024) less the prior period (e.g. Q1 2023), divided by the change in net revenues for the current period less the prior period.

Organic revenue is defined as GAAP net revenues adjusted to eliminate currency fluctuations and for the impact of acquisitions.

Organic bookings is defined as reported orders in the current period adjusted to eliminate currency fluctuations and for the impact of acquisitions.

Working capital measures a firm’s operating liquidity position and its overall effectiveness in managing the enterprise's current accounts.

  • Working capital is calculated by adding net accounts and notes receivables and inventories and subtracting total current liabilities that exclude short-term debt, dividend payable and income tax payables.
  • Working capital as a percent of revenue is calculated by dividing the working capital balance (e.g. as of March 31) by the annualized revenue for the period (e.g. reported revenues for the three months ended March 31 multiplied by 4 to annualize for a full year).

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). The following schedules provide non-GAAP financial information and a quantitative reconciliation of the difference between the non-GAAP financial measures and the financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.

The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to, not a substitute for or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. They have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of our businesses as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures reported by other companies.

We believe the non-GAAP financial information provides important supplemental information to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends used in assessing our financial condition and results of operations.

Non-GAAP financial measures assist investors with analyzing our business results as well as with predicting future performance. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are also reviewed by management in order to evaluate the financial performance of each segment. Presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures helps investors and management to assess the operating performance of the Company.

As a result, one should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for our results reported under GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by analyzing results on a GAAP basis as well as a non-GAAP basis, prominently disclosing GAAP results and providing reconciliations from GAAP results to non-GAAP results.
