Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

(unaudited)



1.
Financial Statements

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (which include normal recurring adjustments) necessary to state fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) have been omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Johnson Controls, Inc. (the "Company") Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2015 filed with the SEC on November 18, 2015, portions of which (including Part I, Item 1. Business, and the following items from Part II of the Annual Report: Item 6. Selected Financial Data, Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis and Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data) were recast in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on March 3, 2016. The results of operations for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of results for the Company’s 2016 fiscal year because of seasonal and other factors.

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Johnson Controls, Inc. and its domestic and non-U.S. subsidiaries that are consolidated in conformity with U.S. GAAP. All significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated. Investments in partially-owned affiliates are accounted for by the equity method when the Company’s interest exceeds 20% and the Company does not have a controlling interest.

Under certain criteria as provided for in Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 810, "Consolidation," the Company may consolidate a partially-owned affiliate. To determine whether to consolidate a partially-owned affiliate, the Company first determines if the entity is a variable interest entity (VIE). An entity is considered to be a VIE if it has one of the following characteristics: 1) the entity is thinly capitalized; 2) residual equity holders do not control the entity; 3) equity holders are shielded from economic losses or do not participate fully in the entity’s residual economics; or 4) the entity was established with non-substantive voting rights. If the entity meets one of these characteristics, the Company then determines if it is the primary beneficiary of the VIE. The party with the power to direct activities of the VIE that most significantly impact the VIE’s economic performance and the potential to absorb benefits or losses that could be significant to the VIE is considered the primary beneficiary and consolidates the VIE. If the entity is not considered a VIE, then the Company applies the voting interest model to determine whether or not the Company shall consolidate the partially-owned affiliate.

Consolidated VIEs

Based upon the criteria set forth in ASC 810, the Company has determined that it was the primary beneficiary in three VIEs for the reporting periods ended June 30, 2016September 30, 2015 and June 30, 2015, as the Company absorbs significant economics of the entities and has the power to direct the activities that are considered most significant to the entities.

Two of the VIEs manufacture products in North America for the automotive industry. The Company funds the entities’ short term liquidity needs through revolving credit facilities and has the power to direct the activities that are considered most significant to the entities through its key customer supply relationships.

In fiscal 2012, a pre-existing VIE accounted for under the equity method was reorganized into three separate investments as a result of the counterparty exercising its option to put its interest to the Company. The Company acquired additional interests in two of the reorganized group entities. The reorganized group entities are considered to be VIEs as the other owner party has been provided decision making rights but does not have equity at risk. The Company is considered the primary beneficiary of one of the entities due to the Company’s power pertaining to decisions over significant activities of the entity. As such, this VIE has been consolidated within the Company’s consolidated statements of financial position. The impact of consolidation of the entity on the Company’s consolidated statements of income for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 was not material. The VIE is named as a co-obligor under a third party debt agreement in the amount of $147 million, maturing in fiscal 2020, under which it could become subject to paying more than its allocated share of the third party debt in the event of bankruptcy of one or more of the other co-obligors. The other co-obligors, all related parties in which the Company is an equity investor, consist of the remaining group entities involved in the reorganization. As part of the overall reorganization transaction, the Company has also provided financial support to the group entities in the form of loans totaling

(unaudited)


$62 million, which are subordinate to the third party debt agreement. The Company is a significant customer of certain co-obligors, resulting in a remote possibility of loss. Additionally, the Company is subject to a floor guaranty expiring in fiscal 2022; in the event that the other owner party no longer owns any part of the group entities due to sale or transfer, the Company has guaranteed that the proceeds received from the sale or transfer will not be less than $25 million. The Company has partnered with the group entities to design and manufacture battery components for the Power Solutions business.

The Company did not have a significant variable interest in any other consolidated VIEs for the presented reporting periods.

Nonconsolidated VIEs

As mentioned previously within the "Consolidated VIEs" section above, in fisca1 2012, a pre-existing VIE was reorganized into three separate investments as a result of the counterparty exercising its option to put its interest to the Company. The reorganized group entities are considered to be VIEs as the other owner party has been provided decision making rights but does not have equity at risk. The Company is not considered to be the primary beneficiary of two of the entities as the Company cannot make key operating decisions considered to be most significant to the VIEs. Therefore, the entities are accounted for under the equity method of accounting as the Company’s interest exceeds 20% and the Company does not have a controlling interest. The Company’s maximum exposure to loss includes the partially-owned affiliate investment balance of $65 million, $62 million and $62 million at June 30, 2016September 30, 2015 and June 30, 2015, respectively, as well as the subordinated loan from the Company, third party debt agreement and floor guaranty mentioned previously within the "Consolidated VIEs" section above. Current liabilities due to the VIEs are not material and represent normal course of business trade payables for all presented periods.

The Company did not have a significant variable interest in any other unconsolidated VIEs for the presented reporting periods.

Retrospective Changes

Effective October 1, 2015, the Company reorganized the reportable segments within its Building Efficiency business to align with its new management reporting structure and business activities. Prior to this reorganization, Building Efficiency was comprised of three reportable segments for financial reporting purposes: North America Systems and Service, Asia and Other. As a result of this change, Building Efficiency is now comprised of four reportable segments for financial reporting purposes: Systems and Service North America, Products North America, Asia and Rest of World. Historical information has been revised to reflect the new Building Efficiency reportable segments. Refer to Note 7, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets," and Note 18, "Segment Information," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for further information.

In November 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2015-17, "Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes." ASU No. 2015-17 requires that deferred tax liabilities and assets be classified as noncurrent in the consolidated statements of financial position. During the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company early adopted ASU No. 2015-17 and applied the change retrospectively to all periods presented.

New Accounting Standards

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-08, "Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant and Equipment (Topic 360): Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity." ASU No. 2014-08 limits discontinued operations reporting to situations where the disposal represents a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity’s operations and financial results, and requires expanded disclosures for discontinued operations. ASU No. 2014-08 was effective for the Company for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. The adoption of this guidance did not have any impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements as there were no dispositions or disposals during the quarter ended December 31, 2015.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, "Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments." ASU No. 2016-13 changes the impairment model for financial assets measured at amortized cost, requiring presentation at the net amount expected to be collected. The measurement of expected credit losses is based upon historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. Available-for-sale debt securities with unrealized losses will now be recorded through an allowance for credit losses. ASU No. 2016-13 will be effective for the Company for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, with early adoption permitted for the quarter ended December 31, 2019. The adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, "Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting." ASU No. 2016-09 impacts certain aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statements of cash flows. ASU No. 2016-09 will be effective for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-07, "Investments - Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323): Simplifying the Transition to the Equity Method of Accounting." ASU No. 2016-07 eliminates the requirement for an investment that qualifies for the use of the equity method of accounting as a result of an increase in the level of ownership or degree of influence to adjust the investment, results of operations and retained earnings retrospectively. ASU No. 2016-07 will be effective prospectively for the Company for increases in the level of ownership interest or degree of influence that result in the adoption of the equity method that occur during or after the quarter ending December 31, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The impact of this guidance for the Company is dependent on any future increases in the level of ownership interest or degree of influence that result in the adoption of the equity method.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842)." ASU No. 2016-02 requires recognition of operating leases as lease assets and liabilities on the balance sheet, and disclosure of key information about leasing

arrangements. ASU No. 2016-02 will be effective retrospectively for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.
In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, "Financial Instruments - Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities." ASU No. 2016-01 amends certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of financial instruments. ASU No. 2016-01 will be effective for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2018, and early adoption is not permitted, with certain exceptions. The changes are required to be applied by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment on the balance sheet as of the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. The Company is currently assessing the impact adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, "Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory." ASU No. 2015-11 requires inventory that is recorded using the first-in, first-out method to be measured at the lower of cost or net realizable value. ASU No. 2015-11 will be effective prospectively for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2017, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.
 
In May 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-07, "Disclosures for Investments in Certain Entities That Calculate Net Asset Value per Share (or Its Equivalent)." ASU No. 2015-07 removes the requirement to categorize within the fair value hierarchy all investments for which fair value is measured using the net asset value per share practical expedient. Such investments should be disclosed separate from the fair value hierarchy. ASU No. 2015-07 will be effective retrospectively for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of this guidance is not expected to have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements but will impact pension asset disclosures.

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, "Interest - Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs." ASU No. 2015-03 requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the debt liability. ASU No. 2015-03 will be effective retrospectively for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

In February 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-02, "Consolidation (Topic 810): Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis." ASU No. 2015-02 amends the analysis performed to determine whether a reporting entity should consolidate certain types of legal entities. ASU No. 2015-02 will be effective retrospectively for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)." ASU No. 2014-09 clarifies the principles for recognizing revenue when an entity either enters into a contract with customers to transfer goods or services or enters into a contract for the transfer of non-financial assets. The original standard was effective retrospectively for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2017; however in August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Deferral of the Effective Date," which defers the effective date of ASU No. 2014-09 by one-year for all entities. The new standard will become effective retrospectively for the Company for the quarter ending December 31, 2018, with early adoption permitted, but not before the original effective date. Additionally, in March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net)," in April 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-10, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing," and in May 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-12, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients," all of which provide additional clarification on certain topics addressed in ASU No. 2014-09. ASU No. 2016-08, ASU No. 2016-10 and ASU No. 2016-12 follow the same implementation guidelines as ASU No. 2014-09 and ASU No. 2015-14. The Company is currently assessing the impact adoption of this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

Acquisitions and Divestitures

On October 1, 2015, the Company formed a joint venture with Hitachi to expand its Building Efficiency product offerings. The Company acquired a 60 percent ownership interest in the new entity for approximately $133 million ($563 million purchase price less cash acquired of $430 million). The purchase price, net of cash acquired, was paid in the nine months ended June 30, 2016. In connection with the acquisition, the Company recorded goodwill of $260 million related to purchase price allocations. The purchase price allocations may be subsequently adjusted to reflect final valuation studies.

In the first nine months of fiscal 2016, the Company completed one acquisition for a purchase price, net of cash acquired, of $3 million, none of which was paid as of June 30, 2016. The acquisition was not material to the Company's consolidated financial statements. In connection with the acquisition, the Company recorded goodwill of $5 million. The purchase price allocation may be subsequently adjusted to reflect the final valuation study. The acquisition increased the Company's ownership from a noncontrolling to controlling interest. As a result, the Company recorded a non-cash gain of $4 million in equity income for the Building Efficiency Rest of World segment to adjust the Company's existing equity investment in the partially-owned affiliate to fair value.

In the three months ended June 30, 2016, the Company completed a divestiture for a sales price of $16 million, $14 million of which was received as of June 30, 2016. The divestiture was not material to the Company's consolidated financial statements. In connection with the divestiture, the Company recorded a gain of $14 million within selling, general and administrative expenses on the consolidated statements of income and reduced goodwill by $3 million in the Building Efficiency Systems and Service North America segment.

In the first nine months of fiscal 2016, the Company received $40 million in cash proceeds related to prior year business divestitures.

In the first nine months of fiscal 2015, the Company completed three acquisitions for a combined purchase price, net of cash acquired, of $47 million, $18 million of which was paid in the nine months ended June 30, 2015. The acquisitions in the aggregate were not material to the Company’s consolidated financial statements. In connection with the acquisitions, the Company recorded goodwill of $9 million.

In the first nine months of fiscal 2015, the Company adjusted the purchase price allocation of the fiscal 2014 acquisition of Air Distribution Technologies Inc. (ADTi). The adjustment was made as a result of a true-up to the purchase price in the amount of $4 million, all of which was paid in the nine months ended June 30, 2015. Also, in connection with this acquisition, the Company recorded additional goodwill of $34 million in fiscal 2015 related to the purchase price allocations. In fiscal 2014, the Company recorded goodwill of $837 million in the Building Efficiency Products North America segment as a result of the ADTi acquisition.

In the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Company completed the sale of its interests in two Global Workplace Solutions (GWS) joint ventures to Brookfield Asset Management, Inc. The selling price, net of cash divested, was $141 million, all of which was received as of the nine months ended June 30, 2015. In connection with the sale, the Company recorded a $200 million gain, $127 million net of tax, within income from discontinued operations, net of tax on the consolidated statements of income and reduced goodwill in assets held for sale by $20 million.

4.
Discontinued Operations

On March 31, 2015, the Company announced that it had reached a definitive agreement to sell the remainder of the GWS business to CBRE Group Inc. (CBRE), subject to regulatory and other approvals. The sale closed on September 1, 2015. The agreement includes a 10-year strategic relationship between the Company and CBRE. The Company is the preferred provider of HVAC equipment, building automation systems and related services to the portfolio of real estate and corporate facilities managed globally by CBRE and GWS. The Company also engages GWS for facility management services. The annual cash flows resulting from these activities with the legacy GWS business are not currently significant nor are they expected to become significant in the future.

At March 31, 2015, the Company determined that its GWS segment met the criteria to be classified as a discontinued operation. The Company did not allocate any general corporate overhead to discontinued operations. The assets and liabilities of the GWS segment were reflected as held for sale in the consolidated statements of financial position at June 30, 2015.

The following table summarizes the results of GWS, reclassified as discontinued operations for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2015 (in millions):

For the nine months ended June 30, 2015, the income from discontinued operations before income taxes included a $200 million gain on divestiture of the Company's interest in two GWS joint ventures. For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2015, the income from discontinued operations before income taxes included transaction costs of $22 million and $39 million, respectively.

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, the effective tax rate was greater than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to a third quarter discrete non-cash tax charge of $335 million related to the change in the Company's assertion over reinvestment of foreign undistributed earnings, partially offset by foreign tax rate differentials. For the nine months ended June 30, 2015, the effective tax rate was greater than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to a second and third quarter discrete non-cash tax charge of $67 million and $335 million, respectively, related to the change in the Company's assertion over reinvestment of foreign undistributed earnings as well as the tax consequences of the sale of the GWS joint ventures, partially offset by foreign tax rate differentials.

Assets and Liabilities Held for Sale

At June 30, 2016, $17 million of certain corporate assets were classified as held for sale.

In April 2015, the Company signed an agreement formally establishing the previously announced automotive interiors joint venture with Yanfeng Automotive Trim Systems. The formation of the joint venture closed on July 2, 2015. The assets and liabilities to be contributed to the joint venture met the criteria to be classified as held for sale beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2014.

At March 31, 2015, the Company determined certain product lines of the Automotive Experience Interiors segment that would not be contributed to the aforementioned automotive interiors joint venture also met the criteria to be classified as held for sale. At September 30, 2015, $55 million of assets and $42 million of liabilities related to certain product lines of the Automotive Experience Interiors segment which were not contributed to the automotive interiors joint venture were classified as held for sale. At June 30, 2016, these product lines no longer met the criteria to be classified as held for sale.

The Interiors businesses classified as held for sale did not meet the criteria to be classified as a discontinued operation primarily due to the Company's continuing involvement in these operations following the divestiture.

At June 30, 2015, accumulated goodwill impairment charges included $430 million and $47 million related to the Automotive Experience Interiors and Building Efficiency Rest of World - Latin America reporting units, respectively.

At October 1, 2015, the Company assessed goodwill for impairment in the Building Efficiency business due to the change in reportable segments as described in Note 18, "Segment Information," of the notes to consolidated financial statements. As a result, the Company performed impairment testing for goodwill under the new segments and determined that the estimated fair value of each reporting unit substantially exceeded its corresponding carrying amount including recorded goodwill, and as such, no impairment existed at October 1, 2015. No reporting unit was determined to be at risk of failing step one of the goodwill impairment test.

Amortization of other intangible assets for the three month periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 was $26 million and $24 million, respectively. Amortization of other intangible assets for the nine month periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 was $74 million and $70 million, respectively. Excluding the impact of any future acquisitions, the Company anticipates amortization for fiscal 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 will be approximately $104 million, $102 million, $86 million, $77 million and $67 million per year, respectively.

8.
Product Warranties

The Company offers warranties to its customers depending upon the specific product and terms of the customer purchase agreement. A typical warranty program requires that the Company replace defective products within a specified time period from the date of sale. The Company records an estimate for future warranty-related costs based on actual historical return rates and other known factors. Based on analysis of return rates and other factors, the Company’s warranty provisions are adjusted as necessary. The Company monitors its warranty activity and adjusts its reserve estimates when it is probable that future warranty costs will be different than those estimates.

The Company’s product warranty liability is recorded in the consolidated statements of financial position in other current liabilities if the warranty is less than one year and in other noncurrent liabilities if the warranty extends longer than one year.

The changes in the carrying amount of the Company’s total product warranty liability, including extended warranties for which deferred revenue is recorded, for the nine months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 were as follows (in millions):

Significant Restructuring and Impairment Costs

To better align its resources with its growth strategies and reduce the cost structure of its global operations to address the softness in certain underlying markets, the Company commits to restructuring plans as necessary.

In fiscal 2016, the Company committed to a significant restructuring plan (2016 Plan) and recorded $331 million of restructuring and impairment costs in the consolidated statements of income, of which $229 million was recorded in the second quarter and $102 million was recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. This is the total amount incurred to date for this restructuring plan. The restructuring actions related to cost reduction initiatives in the Company’s Automotive Experience and Building Efficiency businesses and at Corporate. The costs consist primarily of workforce reductions, plant closures, asset impairments and immaterial changes in estimates to prior year plans. Of the restructuring and impairment costs recorded, $196 million related to the Automotive Experience Seating segment, $65 million related to Corporate, $26 million related to the Building Efficiency Asia segment, $17 million related to the Automotive Experience Interiors segment, $16 million related to the Building Efficiency Rest of World segment, $9 million related to the Building Efficiency Products North America segment, and $2 million related to the Building Efficiency Systems and Service North America segment. The restructuring actions are expected to be substantially complete in fiscal 2017.

The $31 million of transfers from liabilities held for sale represent restructuring reserves that were included in liabilities held for sale in the consolidated statements of financial position at September 30, 2013, but were excluded from liabilities held for sale at September 30, 2014 based on transaction negotiations. See Note 4, "Discontinued Operations," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for further information regarding the Company's assets and liabilities held for sale.

The Company's fiscal 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013 restructuring plans included workforce reductions of approximately 17,800 employees (10,700 for the Automotive Experience business, 6,100 for the Building Efficiency business, 900 for the Power Solutions business and 100 for Corporate). Restructuring charges associated with employee severance and termination benefits are paid over the severance period granted to each employee or on a lump sum basis in accordance with individual severance agreements. As of June 30, 2016, approximately 11,200 of the employees have been separated from the Company pursuant to the restructuring plans. In addition, the restructuring plans included twenty-seven plant closures (twenty for Automotive Experience and seven for Building Efficiency). As of June 30, 2016, eleven of the twenty-seven plants have been closed.

Company management closely monitors its overall cost structure and continually analyzes each of its businesses for opportunities to consolidate current operations, improve operating efficiencies and locate facilities in low cost countries in

close proximity to customers. This ongoing analysis includes a review of its manufacturing, engineering and purchasing operations, as well as the overall global footprint for all its businesses. Because of the importance of new vehicle sales by major automotive manufacturers to operations, the Company is affected by the general business conditions in this industry. Future adverse developments in the automotive industry could impact the Company’s liquidity position, lead to impairment charges and/or require additional restructuring of its operations.

10.
Income Taxes

In calculating the provision for income taxes, the Company uses an estimate of the annual effective tax rate based upon the facts and circumstances known at each interim period. On a quarterly basis, the actual effective tax rate is adjusted, as appropriate, based upon changed facts and circumstances, if any, as compared to those forecasted at the beginning of the fiscal year and each interim period thereafter. For the three months ended June 30, 2016, the Company's effective tax rate for continuing operations was 31% and was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to the benefits of continuing global tax planning initiatives and foreign tax rate differentials, partially offset by the jurisdictional mix of significant restructuring and impairment costs, the tax impacts of separation costs and a non-cash tax charge related to changes in entity tax status associated with the proposed spin-off of the Automotive Experience business ($85 million). For the nine months ended June 30, 2016, the Company's effective tax rate for continuing operations was 71% and was higher than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to the Company’s change in assertion over permanently reinvested earnings as a result of the proposed spin-off of the Automotive Experience business ($780 million), a non-cash tax charge related to changes in entity tax status associated with the proposed spin-off of the Automotive Experience business ($85 million), the jurisdictional mix of significant restructuring and impairment costs, and the tax impacts of separation costs, partially offset by the benefits of continuing global tax planning initiatives and foreign tax rate differentials. For the three and nine months ended June 30, 2015, the Company's effective tax rate for continuing operations was 29% and 23%, respectively. The effective rate was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to global tax planning and foreign tax rate differentials, partially offset by a tax law change in Japan and a change in the Company's assertion over reinvestment of foreign undistributed earnings associated with the Automotive Experience Interiors joint venture transaction.

Valuation Allowance

The Company reviews the realizability of its deferred tax assets on a quarterly basis, or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that a review is required. In determining the requirement for a valuation allowance, the historical and projected financial results of the legal entity or consolidated group recording the net deferred tax asset are considered, along with any other positive or negative evidence. Since future financial results may differ from previous estimates, periodic adjustments to the Company’s valuation allowances may be necessary.

Uncertain Tax Positions

At September 30, 2015, the Company had gross tax effected unrecognized tax benefits of $1,235 million, of which $1,180 million, if recognized, would impact the effective tax rate. Total net accrued interest at September 30, 2015 was approximately $41 million (net of tax benefit). The interest and penalties accrued during the nine months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 was not material. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income tax expense.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company settled tax audits in multiple jurisdictions. The benefit of those settlements was substantially offset by a net tax provision recorded in the quarter where it was more likely than not that the losses would not be realized.

It is reasonably possible that certain tax examinations and/or tax litigation will conclude within the next twelve months, the impact of which could be up to a $100 million benefit to tax expense.

Impacts of Tax Legislation

The United States Department of the Treasury has proposed new regulations under Section 385 of the Internal Revenue Code which may result in certain types of intercompany debt being characterized as equity. The impact of these regulations, if enacted, may impact the Company’s tax expense. The Company is currently assessing the impact of these proposed regulations on its consolidated financial statements.

The "look-through rule," under subpart F of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, expired for the Company on September 30, 2015. The "look-through rule" had provided an exception to the U.S. taxation of certain income generated by foreign subsidiaries. The rule was extended in December 2015 retroactive to the beginning of the Company’s 2016 fiscal year. The retroactive extension was signed into legislation and was made permanent through the Company's 2020 fiscal year.

During the nine months ended June 30, 2015, tax legislation was adopted in Japan which reduced its statutory income tax rate. As a result of the law change, the Company recorded income tax expense of $17 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015.

During the nine months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, other tax legislation was adopted in various jurisdictions. These law changes did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Other Tax Matters

In the third quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company recorded a non-cash tax charge of $85 million related to changes in entity tax status associated with the proposed spin-off of the Automotive Experience business.

In the third quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company recorded $102 million of significant restructuring and impairment costs. Refer to Note 9, "Significant Restructuring and Impairment Costs," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for additional information. The restructuring costs generated a $23 million tax benefit, which was negatively impacted by the geographic mix and the Company’s current tax position in these jurisdictions.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company provided income tax expense on the foreign undistributed earnings of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries associated with the proposed spin-off of the Automotive Experience business, which resulted in a non-cash tax charge of $780 million.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company recorded $229 million of significant restructuring and impairment costs. Refer to Note 9, "Significant Restructuring and Impairment Costs," of the notes to consolidated financial statements for additional information. The restructuring costs generated a $17 million tax benefit, which was negatively impacted by the geographic mix, the Company’s current tax position in these jurisdictions and the underlying tax basis in the impaired assets.

In the third quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company provided income tax expense on the foreign undistributed earnings of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries associated with the Automotive Experience Interiors joint venture transaction, which resulted in a non-cash tax charge of $75 million. For additional information related to the Automotive Experience Interiors joint venture transaction, refer to Note 4, "Discontinued Operations," of the notes to consolidated financial statements.
