07:14 EDTUTXUnited Technologies discloses SEC investigation into engine sales
United Technologies disclosed in a regulatory filing that In December 2013 and January 2014, UTC made voluntary disclosures to the U.S. Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission Division of Enforcement and the U.K.ís Serious Fraud Office to report the status of its internal investigation regarding a non-employee sales representative retained by United Technologies International Operations, Inc. and International Aero Engines for the sale of Pratt & Whitney and IAE engines and aftermarket services, respectively, in China. On April 7, the SEC notified UTC that it is conducting a formal investigation and issued a subpoena to UTC seeking production of documents related to the disclosures. UTC is cooperating fully with the investigation. Because the investigation is at an early stage, we cannot predict its outcome or the consequences thereof at this time. UTC also said that at the outset of the internal investigation, UTIO and IAE suspended all commission payments to the sales representative, and UTIO and IAE have not resumed making any payments. This led to two claims by the sales representative for unpaid commissions: a civil lawsuit filed against UTIO and UTC and an arbitration claim against IAE. "We are contesting the lawsuit and the arbitration claim. We do not believe that the resolution of the lawsuit or the arbitration will have a material adverse effect on our competitive position, results of operations, cash flows or financial condition," the company said.

17:06 EDTUTXUnited Technologies announce changes to aerospace leadership
United Technologies announced it will streamline its aerospace organization and leadership structure to provide greater focus on serving customers. Alain Bellemare, president and CEO of UTC Propulsion & Aerospace Systems, or PAS, has elected to leave the company at the end of the month. He will continue to serve as a consultant to UTC. As a result of Bellemare's decision and the successful integration of Goodrich Corporation, UTC is streamlining its aerospace operations by eliminating the PAS organization. Pratt & Whitney and UTC Aerospace Systems, both formerly under the PAS structure, will continue as stand-alone business units. As a result of this organizational change, Pratt & Whitney president Paul Adams will report directly to United Technologies CEO Gregory Hayes, as will Dave Gitlin, who has been promoted to president of UTC Aerospace Systems, from his former position as leader of that company's Aircraft Systems segment.
10:29 EDTUTXRockwell Collins outlook assumes zero for Learjet 85, says Wells Fargo
After Bombardier (BDRBF) announced it will 'pause' development of its all-composite Learjet-85 business jet due to weak demand, Wells Fargo points out that Rockwell Collins (COL) supplies the Learjet 85's avionics. Wells finds it unclear if Bombardier's decision will trigger any impairment for Rockwell, but notes the company already stated its FY15 revenue guidance assumes zero for Learjet 85. The firm adds United Technologies unit Pratt & Whitney Canada supplies the Learjet 85's engines while LMI Aerospace (LMIA) takes part in the plane's engineering. Wells estimates about 3% of LMI's recent sales have been tied to Learjet 85 development.

Bernstein continues to have a positive outlook on commercial aircraft demand for 2015, as the firm does not see $50 Brent oil as a negative for the sector unless the price stays below that level for the long-term. Bernstein thinks the general demand outlook for the sector is positive, and it identifies Boeing (BA) and United Technologies (UTX) as two of its favorite names in the space.
