NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)


1. Basis of Presentation and Accounting Policies
In the opinion of management of Rockwell Automation, Inc. ("Rockwell Automation" or "the Company"), the unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements contain all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the periods presented and, except as otherwise indicated, such adjustments consist only of those of a normal, recurring nature. These statements should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021. The results of operations for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022, are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. All date references to years and quarters herein refer to our fiscal year and fiscal quarter, unless otherwise stated.
Receivables
We record an allowance for doubtful accounts based on customer-specific analysis and general matters such as current assessments of past due balances and economic conditions. Receivables are stated net of an allowance for doubtful accounts of $14.0 million at March 31, 2022, and $13.2 million at September 30, 2021. In addition, receivables are recorded net of an allowance for certain customer returns, rebates and incentives of $9.2 million at March 31, 2022, and $6.7 million at September 30, 2021. The changes to our allowance for doubtful accounts during the three and six months ended March 31, 2022, were not material and primarily consisted of current-period provisions, write-offs charged against the allowance, recoveries collected, and foreign currency translation.
Earnings Per Share
The following table reconciles basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) amounts (in millions, except per share amounts):

For each of the three and six months ended March 31, 2022, there were 0.3 million shares related to share-based compensation awards that were excluded from the diluted EPS calculation because they were antidilutive. For each of the three and six months ended March 31, 2021, there were 0.2 million shares related to share-based compensation awards that were excluded from the diluted EPS calculation because they were antidilutive.
Non-Cash Investing and Financing Activities
Capital expenditures of $8.1 million and $15.5 million were accrued within Accounts payable and Other current liabilities at March 31, 2022, and 2021, respectively. At March 31, 2022, there were no outstanding common stock share repurchases recorded in Accounts payable. At March 31, 2021, there were $2.8 million of outstanding common stock share repurchases recorded in Accounts payable that did not settle until the next fiscal quarter. These non-cash investing and financing activities have been excluded from cash used for capital expenditures and treasury stock purchases in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2016, the FASB issued a new standard that requires companies to utilize a current expected credit losses impairment (CECL) model for certain financial assets, including trade and other receivables. The CECL model requires that estimated expected credit losses, including allowance for doubtful accounts, consider a broader range of information such as economic conditions and expected changes in market conditions. We adopted the new standard as of October 1, 2020. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.
2. Revenue Recognition
Nature of Products and Services
Substantially all of our revenue is from contracts with customers. We recognize revenue as promised products are transferred to, or services are performed for, customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which we expect to be entitled in exchange for those products and services. Our offerings consist of industrial automation and information products, solutions, and services.
Our products include hardware, software, and configured-to-order products. Our solutions include custom-engineered systems and software. Our services include customer technical support and repair, asset management and optimization consulting, and training. Also included in our services is a portion of revenue related to spare parts that are managed within our services offering.
Our operations are comprised of the Intelligent Devices segment, Software & Control segment, and Lifecycle Services segment. Revenue from the Intelligent Devices and Software & Control segments is predominantly comprised of product sales, which are recognized at a point in time. The Software & Control segment also contains revenue from software products which may be recognized over time if certain criteria are met. Revenue from the Lifecycle Services segment is predominantly comprised of solutions and services, which are primarily recognized over time. See Note 15 for more information.
Unfulfilled Performance Obligations
As of March 31, 2022, we expect to recognize approximately $845 million of revenue in future periods from unfulfilled performance obligations from existing contracts with customers. We expect to recognize revenue of approximately $460 million from our remaining performance obligations over the next 12 months with the remaining balance recognized thereafter.
We have applied the practical expedient to exclude the value of remaining performance obligations for (i) contracts with an original term of one year or less and (ii) contracts for which we recognize revenue in proportion to the amount we have the right to invoice for services performed. The amounts above also do not include the impact of contract renewal options that are unexercised as of March 31, 2022.

Contract Balances
Contract liabilities primarily relate to consideration received in advance of performance under the contract. Contract assets primarily relate to performance under the contract prior to the consideration being received or due. We do not have significant contract assets as of March 31, 2022.

Below is a summary of our Contract liabilities balance (in millions):
March 31, 2022March 31, 2021
Balance as of beginning of fiscal year$462.5 $325.3 
Balance as of end of period541.0 393.1 
The most significant changes in our Contract liabilities balance during the six months ended March 31, 2022, were due to amounts billed, partially offset by revenue recognized that was included in the Contract liabilities balance at the beginning of the period and revenue recognized on amounts billed during the period. The most significant changes in our Contract liabilities balance during the six months ended March 31, 2021, were due to amounts billed, partially offset by revenue recognized that was included in the Contract liabilities balance at the beginning of the period.

In the six months ended March 31, 2022, we recognized revenue of approximately $260.8 million that was included in the Contract liabilities balance at September 30, 2021. In the six months ended March 31, 2021, we recognized revenue of approximately $181.5 million that was included in the Contract liabilities balance at September 30, 2020. We did not have a material amount of revenue recognized in the six months ended March 31, 2022, and 2021, from performance obligations satisfied or partially satisfied in previous periods.

5. Acquisitions
Fiscal 2022 Acquisitions
In November 2021, we acquired AVATA, a services provider for supply chain management, enterprise resource planning, and enterprise performance management solutions. We assigned the full amount of goodwill related to this acquisition to our Lifecycle Services segment.
In March 2022, we, through our Sensia affiliate, acquired Swinton Technology, a provider of metering supervisory systems and measurement expertise in the Oil & Gas industry. We assigned the full amount of goodwill related to this acquisition to our Lifecycle Services segment.
Fiscal 2021 Acquisitions
Plex acquisition
In August 2021, we acquired Plex Systems, a cloud-native smart manufacturing platform. Plex offers a single-instance, multi-tenant Software-as-a-Service manufacturing platform operating at scale, including advanced manufacturing execution systems, quality, and supply chain management capabilities.
We recorded assets acquired and liabilities assumed in connection with this acquisition based on their estimated fair values as of the acquisition date of August 31, 2021. The preliminary aggregate purchase price allocation is as follows (in millions):
Purchase Price Allocation
Accounts receivable$14.8 
All other assets28.4 
Goodwill1,728.2 
Intangible assets531.4 
Total assets acquired2,302.8 
Less: Contract liabilities(29.2)
Less: Other liabilities assumed(32.8)
Less: Deferred income taxes(35.3)
Net assets acquired$2,205.5 
Purchase Consideration
Total purchase consideration, net of cash acquired$2,205.5 
Intangible assets identified include $276.4 million of customer relationships, $232.8 million of technology, and $22.2 million of trade names (approximately 12-year weighted average useful life). We assigned the full amount of goodwill and all other assets acquired to our Software & Control segment. The goodwill recorded represents intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition. This goodwill arises because the purchase price for Plex reflects a number of factors including the future earnings and cash flow potential of the business, the strategic fit and resulting synergies from the complementary portfolio of leading software-as-a-service applications, industry expertise, and market access. We do not expect the goodwill to be deductible for tax purposes. The intangible assets were valued using an income approach, specifically the relief from royalty method and multi-period excess earnings method. The relief from royalty method calculates value based on hypothetical payments that would be saved by owning an asset rather than licensing it. The multi-period excess earnings method is the isolation of cash flows from a single intangible asset and measures fair value by discounting them to present value. These values are considered level 3 measurements under the U.S. GAAP fair value hierarchy. The key assumption requiring the use of judgement in the valuation of the customer relationship intangible asset was the customer attrition rate of 5 percent; other assumptions included forecasted cash flows attributable to the existing customers and the discount rate. The key assumptions requiring the use of judgement in the valuation of the technology intangible asset were the royalty rate of 25 percent and the obsolescence factor estimating a phase out over 10 years; other assumptions included forecasted revenue growth rates and the discount rate.

ROCKWELL AUTOMATION, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued)
(Unaudited)
The allocation of the purchase price to identifiable assets above is based on the preliminary valuations performed to determine the fair value of the net assets as of the acquisition date. The measurement period for the valuation of net assets acquired ends as soon as information on the facts and circumstances that existed as of the acquisition date becomes available, but not to exceed 12 months following the acquisition date. Adjustments in purchase price allocations may require a change in the amounts allocated to net assets acquired during the periods in which the adjustments are determined.
Other acquisitions
In October 2020, we acquired Oylo, a privately held industrial cybersecurity services provider based in Barcelona, Spain. We assigned the full amount of goodwill related to this acquisition to our Lifecycle Services segment.
In December 2020, we acquired Fiix Inc., a privately held, artificial intelligence enabled computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) company based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We assigned the full amount of goodwill related to this acquisition to our Software & Control segment.
We recorded assets acquired and liabilities assumed in connection with these acquisitions based on their estimated fair values as of the respective acquisition dates. The aggregate purchase price allocation for these acquisitions is as follows (in millions):
Purchase Price Allocation
Accounts receivable$6.0 
All other assets15.9

Less: Liabilities assumed(25.5)
Less: Deferred income taxes(3.7)
Net assets acquired$287.1 
Purchase Consideration
Total purchase consideration, net of cash acquired$287.1 
Intangible assets identified include $69.6 million of customer relationships, technology, and trade names (approximately 11-year weighted average useful life). We assigned $12.8 million of goodwill to our Lifecycle Services segment and $212.0 million of goodwill to our Software & Control segment, which represents intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition. We do not expect the goodwill to be deductible for tax purposes.
Total sales from the fiscal 2021 acquisitions and acquisition-related costs recognized in the three and six months ended March 31, 2021, were not material. Pro forma consolidated sales for the three and six months ended March 31, 2021, were approximately $1.8 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively, and the impact on earnings is not material. The preceding pro forma consolidated financial results of operations are as if all of preceding fiscal 2021 acquisitions occurred on October 1, 2020. The pro forma information is presented for informational purposes only and is not indicative of the results of operations that would have been achieved had the transaction occurred as of that time.
