Cash flow from operations was $1.38 billion and capital expenditures were $238 million.
"This was another solid quarter for UTC. Notably, organic revenue growth came in at 9%, following 10% growth in each of the first two quarters of 2007. In addition, five of our six business segments grew profits at double digit rates as markets in general remain healthy and cost reductions continue. While market conditions in Carrier's North American residential business are clearly challenging, its other three global businesses delivered double digit earnings growth," said UTC Chairman and CEO George David.
