1)  Basis of Presentation
 
The unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments (which include normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the periods presented. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such SEC rules. Unless the context otherwise indicates, references herein to “ITT,” “the Company,” and such words as “we,” “us,” and “our” include ITT Corporation and its subsidiaries. ITT believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. ITT consistently applied the accounting policies described in ITT’s 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K in preparing these unaudited financial statements. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in ITT’s 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
 
ITT’s 2008 and 2007 quarterly financial periods end on the Saturday closest to the last day of the quarter, except for the last quarterly period of the fiscal year, which ends on December 31st. For simplicity of presentation, the quarterly financial statements included herein are presented as ending on the last day of the quarter.
 
Certain amounts in the prior periods’ consolidated condensed financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
 
2)  Stock-Based and Long-Term Incentive Employee Compensation
 
Stock-based and long-term incentive employee compensation cost reduced consolidated results of operations as follows:
 
                                 
    Three Months Ended
    Nine Months Ended
 
    September 30     September 30  
    2008     2007     2008     2007  
 
Impact on income before income taxes
  $ (8.5 )   $ (13.5 )   $ (35.3 )   $ (45.1 )
Impact on net income available to shareholders
  $ (5.8 )   $ (8.7 )   $ (23.8 )   $ (29.3 )
Impact on net income per common share:
                               
Basic
  $ (0.03 )   $ (0.05 )   $ (0.13 )   $ (0.16 )
Diluted
  $ (0.03 )   $ (0.05 )   $ (0.13 )   $ (0.16 )
 
At September 30, 2008, there was $48.3 and $20.4 of total unrecognized compensation cost under the ITT 2003 Equity Incentive Plan and the ITT 1997 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “LTIP”), respectively, which is expected to be recognized ratably over a weighted-average period of 1.9 years and 1.3 years, respectively.
 
The total cash paid to settle the LTIP liability for the 2005 and 2004 annual grants during the first nine months of 2008 and 2007 was $19.3 and $17.6, respectively.
 
3)  Restructuring and Asset Impairment Charges
 
 
During the third quarter of 2008, we recognized a $1.1 impairment charge related to one of our Motion & Flow Control businesses. This charge reflects the reduction of our expected future earnings for this business.

The charges associated with actions announced during the third quarter of 2007 represent a reduction of structural costs in all business segments. Planned position eliminations total 78, including 22 factory workers, 49 office workers and seven management employees. The costs associated with the prior actions are largely due to additional severance costs as well as asset impairments.
 
Nine Months Ended September 30
 
During the nine months ended September 30, 2007, we recorded a net restructuring charge of $31.1, reflecting costs of $26.1 related to actions during the nine months and $6.7 related to prior years’ plans, as well as the reversal of $1.7 of restructuring accruals that management determined would not be required.

position eliminations total 347, including 172 factory workers, 160 office workers and 15 management employees. The costs associated with the prior years’ plans primarily reflect additional costs related to an adjustment to the write-off of leased space as well as asset impairments and severance costs.

As of September 30, 2008, of the planned facility closures, one facility in the Defense Electronics & Services business segment remains to be closed. This closure is expected to occur in early 2009.
 
4)  Discontinued Operations
 
Discontinued operations are comprised of several businesses, the most significant of which are the Switches businesses. Sales and revenues from discontinued operations were $1.1 and $23.2 for the quarters ended September 30, 2008 and 2007, respectively. For the first nine months of 2008 and 2007, sales and revenues were $7.7 and $174.2, respectively.
 
During 2007, we sold the majority of the Switches businesses to a private equity firm, for net proceeds of $223.2, and an after-tax gain of $84.4 ($58.7 recognized through September 30, 2007). During the third quarter of 2008, we completed the sale of the remaining component of the Switches businesses to the same buyer, for net proceeds of $5.1. As a result, we recorded an after-tax gain on sale of $7.3 and $5.4 for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2008, respectively. The year-to-date gain reflects $2.9 of expenses ($1.9 net of tax) incurred during the first six months of 2008, related to the disposition.
 
The divestiture of the businesses is consistent with our strategy of concentrating resources in core product areas and de-emphasizing products that are determined to be less strategic to future operations.

Net periodic pension cost
  $ 0.2     $ 16.9     $ 0.3     $ 50.5  
                                 
 
Net periodic pension cost decreased in the first nine months of 2008, compared with the same prior year period, as a result of the higher discount rate adopted at year-end 2007 leading to a lower amortization of actuarial losses, and higher expected returns on plan assets due to increased asset levels. The decrease was partially offset by an increase in interest costs and amortization of prior service cost. Based on the facts and circumstances described below the decrease in net periodic pension cost will be partially offset by reduced recoveries of costs under our U.S. Government contracts.
 
The Defense Electronics & Services business segment represents approximately 67% of the active U.S. Salaried Plan participants. As a result, we have sought and will seek reimbursement from the Department of Defense for a portion of our pension costs, in accordance with government regulations. U.S. Government Cost Accounting Standards govern the extent to which pension costs are allocable to and recoverable under contracts with the U.S. Government.
 
ITT contributed $21.6 to its various plans during the first nine months of 2008. We expect to make additional contributions, in the range of $3.4 to $8.4, during the fourth quarter of 2008.

11)  Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets
 
The application of purchase accounting under SFAS No. 141, “Business Combinations” (“SFAS 141”), requires that the total purchase price be allocated to the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their fair value at the acquisition date, with amounts exceeding the net fair value being recorded as goodwill. The allocation process requires an analysis of items such as acquired contracts, customer relationships, fixed assets, contractual commitments, legal contingencies, and brand value to identify and record the fair value of all assets and liabilities assumed. In valuing acquired assets and liabilities, fair values are based on, but not limited to, future expected discounted cash flows, comparable market rates, replacement costs, expected settlement amounts, and discount and growth rates.
 
On December 20, 2007, ITT acquired all of the outstanding shares of EDO Corporation (“EDO”), a global aerospace and defense company. As a result, we assigned preliminary fair value amounts to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. We have obtained additional information during the current year, which has resulted in adjustments to the preliminary purchase price allocation. These adjustments are reflected in the tables below within the Defense Electronics & Services business segment. As of September 30, 2008, our analysis was substantially complete, with the exception the fair value of long-term contracts acquired and the valuation of customer relationships, which are expected to be finalized during the fourth quarter of 2008.

In accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes — an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109,” (“FIN 48”) we recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. We adopted the provisions set forth by FIN 48 effective January 1, 2007.
 
As of September 30, 2008 and December 31, 2007, we have $109.0 and $103.3, respectively, of total unrecognized tax benefits. The amount of unrecognized tax benefits that, if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate is $48.2 and $42.8, as of September 30, 2008 and December 31, 2007, respectively. We do not believe that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will significantly change within 12 months of the reporting date.
 
We classify interest relating to tax matters as a component of interest expense and tax penalties as a component of income tax expense in our income statement. We have accrued $39.5 and $36.2 for payment of interest and penalties as of September 30, 2008 and December 31, 2007, respectively.
 
15)  Commitments and Contingencies
 
The Company is from time to time involved in legal proceedings that are incidental to the operation of its businesses. Some of these proceedings allege damages against the Company relating to environmental liabilities, product liabilities (including asbestos), employment and pension matters, government contract issues and commercial or contractual disputes, sometimes related to acquisitions or divestitures. The Company will continue to

defend itself vigorously against all claims. Although the ultimate outcome of any legal matter cannot be predicted with certainty, based on present information, including the Company’s assessment of the merits of the particular claim, as well as its current reserves and insurance coverage, the Company does not expect that such legal proceedings will have a material adverse impact on the financial position, results of operations, or cash flows of the Company on a consolidated basis.
 
See “Critical Accounting Estimates” within Item 7, Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, of the 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K for a discussion of contingent liabilities, including the related estimates, assumptions, uncertainties, and potential financial statement impact from revisions to our estimates.
 
 
Accruals for environmental matters are recorded on a site by site basis when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be reasonably estimated, based on current law and existing technologies. The Company’s environmental liability includes matters associated with properties containing disposed or recycled materials or wastes generated by current or former properties of ITT, and nearby properties impacted by those operations. It is difficult to estimate the total costs of investigation and remediation due to various factors, including incomplete information regarding particular sites and other potentially responsible parties, uncertainty regarding the extent of necessary remediation and the Company’s share, if any, of liability for such conditions, the selection of alternative remedies, and changes in clean-up standards. In management’s opinion, the total amount accrued is appropriate based on existing facts and circumstances. Management does not anticipate that these liabilities will have a material adverse effect on the consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
In the ordinary course of business, and similar to other industrial companies, the Company is subject to extensive and changing federal, state, local, and foreign environmental laws and regulations. The Company has received notice that it is considered a potentially responsible party (“PRP”) at a limited number of sites by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and/or a similar state agency under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act or its state equivalent. As of September 30, 2008, the Company is responsible, or is alleged to be responsible, for approximately 101 ongoing environmental investigation and remediation sites in various countries. These sites are in various stages of investigation and/or remediation and in many of these proceedings the Company’s liability is considered de minimis. At September 30, 2008, the Company’s best estimate for environmental liabilities is $141.4, which approximates the accrual related to the investigation and remediation of ground water, soil, and soil vapor, as well as related legal fees. This also includes the Company’s estimated accrual for environmental liabilities associated with its former automotive business. The low range estimate for its environmental liabilities is $110.3 and the high range estimate for those liabilities is $242.5. On an annual basis, the Company spends between $8.0 and $12.0 on its environmental remediation liabilities. These estimates, and related accruals, are reviewed periodically and updated for progress of investigation and remediation efforts and changes in facts and legal circumstances. Liabilities for environmental expenditures are recorded on an undiscounted basis.
 
The Company is involved in an environmental proceeding in Glendale, California relating to the San Fernando Valley. The Company is one of numerous PRPs who are alleged by the EPA to have contributed to impacts to ground water. In January 1999, the EPA filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the Central District of California against the Company and Lockheed Martin Corporation, United States v. ITT Industries, Inc. and Lockheed Martin Corp. CV99-00552 SVW AIJX, to recover costs it incurred in connection with the foregoing. In May 1999, the EPA and the PRPs, including the Company and Lockheed Martin, reached a settlement, embodied in a consent decree, requiring the PRPs to perform additional remedial activities. Pursuant to the settlement, the PRPs, including the Company, have constructed and are funding operation of a water treatment plant. The operation of the

(In millions, except per share amounts, unless otherwise stated)
 
water treatment plant is expected to continue until 2013, at which time a separate allocation for continued operation of the plant is expected. ITT and the other PRPs continue to pay their respective allocated costs of the operation of the water treatment plant. In 2007, one PRP defaulted on its percentage share of costs, and the PRP Group is pursuing a remedy of the default; however, this default has increased ITT’s allocated share of the liability. Additionally, a regulatory modification to the discharge standard for hexavalent chromium under the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System occurred in 2007, and the impact of this change has resulted in additional costs for potential modifications to the water treatment plant. As of September 30, 2008, the Company’s accrual for its share of the operation costs of the water treatment plant through 2013 was $7.8 representing its best estimate; its low estimate for the liability is $3.8 and its high estimate is $12.9. In addition to operation of the water treatment plant, state and federal regulators also have issued administrative orders regarding investigation and potential remediation of chromium and 1,4-Dioxane in ground water under the Company’s former facility. Those administrative orders are separately estimated and reserved by the Company.
 
Prior to the 1995 Distribution Agreement (See “Company History and Certain Relationships” within Part I, Item 1 of the 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K for a description of the Distribution Agreement), the predecessor ITT Corporation operated a facility in Madison County, Florida from 1968 until 1991. In 1995, elevated levels of contaminants were detected at the former manufacturing site. Since then, ITT has completed the investigation of the site in coordination with state and federal environmental authorities and evaluated various remedies. A final remedy for the site was selected by USEPA in a Record of Decision dated September 25, 2008. Currently, the estimated range for the remediation is between $3.8 and $16.8. The Company has accrued $6.4 for this matter, which approximates its best estimate.
 
The Company is involved with a number of PRPs regarding property in the City of Bronson, Michigan, operated by a former subsidiary of the predecessor ITT Corporation, Higbie Manufacturing, prior to the time ITT acquired Higbie. The Company and other PRPs are investigating and remediating permitted discharges of industrial waste, which occurred as early as the 1930s. The Company’s current estimates for its exposure are between $6.9 and $15.6, and it has an accrual for this matter of $11.0, which represents its best estimate. The Company does not anticipate a default on the part of the other PRPs. ITT is pursuing legal claims against some other potentially responsible parties for past and future costs while ITT has received notice of potential claims from third parties.
 
The Company operated a facility in Rochester, New York, called Rochester Form Machine from 1979 until 2003. Rochester Form Machine was a former subsidiary of the predecessor ITT Corporation known as ITT Higbie after ITT acquired Higbie in 1972. In August 2003, the Company, through its subsidiary ITT Fluid Handling Systems, entered into an Order on Consent with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to investigate and remediate facility-related impacts to soil, soil vapor, indoor air and ground water. As of September 30, 2008, the Company’s current estimate for this exposure is between $4.4 and $17.0 and it has an accrual for this matter of $7.0, which represents the best estimate. The Company is pursuing a legal claim against certain other PRPs who may share responsibility.
 
In a suit filed in 1991 by the Company, in the California Superior Court, Los Angeles County, ITT Corporation, et al. v. Pacific Indemnity Corporation et al., against its insurers, the Company is seeking recovery of costs it incurred in connection with its environmental liabilities including the matters listed above. Discovery, procedural matters, changes in California law, and various appeals have prolonged this case. For several years, the case had been on appeal before the California Court of Appeals from a decision by the California Superior Court dismissing certain claims of the Company. The dismissed claims were claims where the costs incurred were solely due to administrative (versus judicial) actions. However, in April 2007, the Superior Court vacated its earlier ruling, dismissing the claims based on the California Supreme Court’s decision in Powerine Oil Co. v. Superior Court. As a result, the Court of Appeals dismissed the appeal as moot. The case is now back before the Superior Court and the parties are engaged in further discovery. During the course of the litigation, the Company has negotiated settlements

with certain defendant insurance companies and is prepared to pursue its legal remedies where reasonable negotiations are not productive.
 
 
The Company, including its subsidiary Goulds Pumps, Inc. (“Goulds”), has been joined as a defendant with numerous other industrial companies in product liability lawsuits alleging injury due to asbestos. These claims stem primarily from products sold prior to 1985 that contained a part manufactured by a third party, e.g., a gasket, which allegedly contained asbestos. The asbestos was encapsulated in the gasket (or other) material and was non-friable. In certain other cases, it is alleged that former ITT companies were distributors for other manufacturers’ products that may have contained asbestos.
 
As of September 30, 2008, there were approximately 104,000 open claims against the Company, essentially unchanged from December 31, 2007. Frequently, the plaintiffs are unable to demonstrate any injury or do not identify any ITT or Goulds product as a source of asbestos exposure. During the first nine months of 2008, the Company resolved approximately 4,500 claims. Most of these claims were dismissed, with settlement on a modest percentage of claims. The average amount of settlement per claim has been nominal and substantially all defense and settlement costs have been covered by insurance. Although it is impossible to predict the ultimate outcome of these product liability suits, based on current information, the Company’s experience in handling these matters, and its substantial insurance program, management does not believe that these claims will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
The Company’s estimated accrued costs, net of expected insurance recoveries, for the resolution of all of these pending claims were $26.8 and $24.8 as of September 30, 2008 and December 31, 2007, respectively. While it is probable that the Company will incur additional costs for claims to be filed in the future, these additional costs are not reasonably estimable at this time.
 
The Company is involved in two actions, Cannon Electric, Inc. et al. v. Ace Property & Casualty Company (“ACE”) et al. Superior Court, County of Los Angeles, CA, Case No. BC 290354, and Pacific Employers Insurance Company et al., v. ITT Industries, Inc., et al., Supreme Court, County of New York, N.Y., Case No. 03600463. The parties in both cases are seeking an appropriate allocation of responsibility for the Company’s historic asbestos liability exposure among its insurers. The California action is filed in the same venue where the Company’s environmental insurance recovery litigation had been pending since 1991. The New York action has been stayed in favor of the California suit. ITT, ACE and Nationwide Indemnity have successfully resolved the matter and the Company is working with other parties in the suit to resolve the matter as to those insurers.
 
In addition, Goulds has negotiated coverage-in-place agreements with Utica National (“Utica”) and ACE allocating the Goulds’ asbestos liabilities between insurance policies issued by Utica, ACE and those issued by others. The terms of the settlements provide Goulds with substantial coverage from those two insurers for asbestos liabilities. Goulds will continue to seek coverage from its other insurers for these liabilities.
 
The Company provides an indemnity to U.S. Silica Company for silica personal injury suits filed prior to September 12, 2005 against its former subsidiary Pennsylvania Glass Sand. ITT sold the stock of Pennsylvania Glass Sand to U.S. Silica Company in 1985. The Company’s indemnity had been paid in part by its historic product liability carrier, however, in September 2005, the carrier communicated to ITT that it would no longer provide insurance for these claims. On October 4, 2005, ITT filed a suit against the insurer, ITT v. Pacific Employers Insurance Co., CA No. 05CV 5223, seeking its defense costs and indemnity from the insurance carrier for Pennsylvania Glass Sand product liabilities. In April 2007, the Court granted the Company’s motion for summary judgment on the carrier’s duty to defend the silica cases; however, that decision was overturned on appeal. The matter was returned to the Superior Court in part for determination of several factual issues. The Company will continue to seek its past and future defense costs for these cases from this carrier. Management believes that these

matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. All silica related costs, net of insurance recoveries, are shared pursuant to the Distribution Agreement. See “BUSINESS — Company History and Certain Relationships” of the Company’s 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K for a description of the Distribution Agreement.
 
On October 25, 2006, The Hartford and Fencourt Reinsurance Company (“Fencourt”), a subsidiary of The Hartford, filed a contribution claim against ITT for losses incurred by Fencourt as a result of a reinsurance contract obligation it owes to Century Indemnity Company (a subsidiary of ACE). Century Indemnity Company was an insurer of ITT’s Domestic Casualty Program from 1978 through 1992. Fencourt, formed in 1978, was a captive insurer of the predecessor ITT Corporation and provided reinsurance to Century for certain ITT self-insured losses. Fencourt was transferred to The Hartford in the demerger of ITT in 1995. This matter is covered by the 1995 Distribution Agreement (See “BUSINESS — Company History and Certain Relationships” of the Company’s 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K for a description of the Distribution Agreement) and that agreement contains clear language that The Hartford agreed to assume the liabilities of Fencourt and indemnify ITT against all claims against Fencourt. The case is stayed pending the resolution of an arbitration proceeding currently pending in New Jersey. The Company believes that this matter will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
In December 2005, the Company received an anonymous complaint regarding the possible payment of commissions to foreign government officials by employees of its Nanjing Goulds Pumps company, in Nanjing, China. Such commission payments may violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The Company is conducting an investigation utilizing internal and external resources and voluntarily disclosed the preliminary results of the investigation to the United States Department of Justice and the SEC. At the conclusion of the investigation, the U.S. government could impose a civil penalty or a criminal fine and/or order that the Company disgorge any profits derived from contracts where inappropriate commissions were paid. The Company does not expect that this matter will have a material adverse impact on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company on a consolidated basis.
 
On March 27, 2007, the Company reached a settlement relating to an investigation of its ITT Night Vision Division’s compliance with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (“ITAR”) pursuant to which the Company pled guilty to two violations based on the export of defense articles without a license and the omission of material facts in required export reports. The Company was assessed a total of $50.0 in fines, forfeitures and penalties, which was accrued for fully as of December 31, 2006. Of the total, $30.0 was paid in 2007 with the remaining balance to be paid by the end of 2011, including $4.0 which was paid in the first quarter of 2008. ITT also entered into a Deferred Prosecution Agreement with the U.S. government which deferred action regarding a third count of violations related to ITAR pending the Company’s implementation of a remedial action plan, including the appointment of an independent monitor. The Company was assessed a deferred prosecution monetary penalty of $50.0 which the Company will reduce for monies spent by the Company, over the five years following the date of the Plea Agreement, to accelerate and further the development and fielding of advanced night vision technology. On October 11, 2007, the Company and the Department of Defense finalized an Administrative Compliance Agreement wherein the Company agreed to take certain remedial actions including implementing compliance programs and appointing an independent monitor for the oversight of the Company’s compliance programs. On December 28, 2007, the Company finalized a Consent Agreement with the Department of State wherein the Company agreed to undertake certain remedial actions, including appointment of a Special Compliance Official. Management believes that these matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
On April 17, 2007, the Company’s Board of Directors received a letter on behalf of a shareholder requesting that the Board take appropriate action against the employees responsible for the actions described in the Company’s agreements with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Virginia, which were disclosed on

Form 8-K filed on March 30, 2007. The Board of Directors appointed a Special Litigation Committee to evaluate the request. The Special Litigation Committee conducted an investigation with the assistance of independent counsel and concluded that no legal actions should be brought by the Company.
 
On April 20, 2007, the Company received notice of a shareholder derivative action, Sylvia Piven trustee under trust agreement dated April 3, 1973 f/b/o Sylvia B. Piven, derivatively on behalf of ITT Corporation v. Steve Loranger et al. and ITT Corporation, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, CA No. 07-CV-2878 (the “Piven” action), alleging that the Company’s Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the Company’s compliance programs at its Night Vision business. The Piven Complaint seeks compensatory and punitive damages for the Company from its Directors, the removal of the Directors, and the election of new directors. On July 12, 2007, the Company received notice of a second shareholder derivative action, Norman Levy, derivatively on behalf of ITT Industries, Inc. v. Steven R. Loranger et al. and ITT Industries, Inc., U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, CA No. 07-CV-6339 (the “Levy” action). The Levy Complaint asserts similar claims as the Piven Complaint and seeks compensatory damages for the Company from its Directors. On August 20, 2007, the Company received notice of a third derivative action, Anthony Reale v. Steven R. Loranger et al. and ITT Company [sic], U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, CA No. 07-CV-6339 (the “Reale” action). The Reale action also names as John Doe defendants the individual managers allegedly responsible for the actions that gave rise to the Night Vision guilty plea, as well as the law firm that advised the Company in connection with a voluntary disclosure of violations. All three actions are consolidated before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, In Re ITT Corporation Derivative Litigation, CA No. 07-CV-2878 (CLB). On April 10, 2008, the Court denied the Company’s motion to dismiss the consolidated Complaint. The Company has filed a Motion for Reconsideration and the Defendants have filed a Motion to Dismiss on jurisdictional grounds. Both motions are currently pending before the Court.
 
On July 14, 2008, the Company received notice that a fourth derivative action was filed in the same court where the above matters are currently pending, Robert Wilkinson v. Steven R. Loranger et al. and ITT Corporation, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, CA No. 08-CV-6318 (the “Wilkinson” action). The Wilkinson action names the same defendants as the above complaints and asserts similar claims and the Company expects that this action will be consolidated with the above cases. Management believes that these derivative suits will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
16)  Guarantees, Indemnities and Warranties
 
 
Since ITT’s incorporation in 1920, we have acquired and disposed of numerous entities. The related acquisition and disposition agreements contain various representation and warranty clauses and may provide indemnities for a misrepresentation or breach of the representations and warranties by either party. The indemnities address a variety of subjects; the term and monetary amounts of each such indemnity are defined in the specific agreements and may be affected by various conditions and external factors. Many of the indemnities have expired either by operation of law or as a result of the terms of the agreement. We do not have a liability recorded for the historic indemnifications and are not aware of any claims or other information that would give rise to material payments under such indemnities.
 
In December of 2007, we entered into a sales-type lease agreement for our corporate aircraft and then leased the aircraft back under a five-year operating lease. We have provided, under the lease, a residual value guarantee to the counterparty in the amount of $50.2, which is the maximum amount of undiscounted future payments. We would have to make payments under the residual value guarantee only if the fair value of the aircraft was less than the residual value guarantee upon termination of the agreement. At September 30, 2008, we do not believe that a loss contingency is probable and therefore do not have an accrual recorded in our financial statements.

ITT has a number of individually immaterial guarantees outstanding at September 30, 2008, that may be affected by various conditions and external forces, some of which could require that payments be made under such guarantees. We do not believe these payments will have any material adverse impact on the financial position, results of operations or cash flow on a consolidated basis in the foreseeable future.
 
 
ITT warrants numerous products, the terms of which vary widely. In general, ITT warrants its products against defect and specific non-performance. In the automotive businesses, liability for product defects could extend beyond the selling price of the product and could be significant if the defect shuts down production or results in a recall. Changes in product warranty accruals for September 30, 2008 and 2007 were as follows:

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL
CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
(In millions, except per share amounts, unless otherwise stated)
 
 
ITT Corporation and its subsidiaries (“ITT”, “we”, “us”, “our” and “the Company”) is a global multi-industry company with worldwide operations engaged directly and through its subsidiaries in the design and manufacture of a wide range of engineered products and the provision of related services.
 
We have a diverse business portfolio, which we believe is designed to respond to the following macro-economic growth drivers: global security and infrastructure demands, population growth, and environment trends. Although our business is affected by global, regional and industry-specific economic factors, our geographic and industry diversity, as well as the diversity of our product sales and services, has helped limit the impact of any one industry, or the economy of any single country, on the consolidated operating results. While we do have some businesses that are linked to long- and short-cycle economies such as construction, defense, mining and minerals, transportation, automotive, and aerospace as industries, a disproportionate amount of our portfolio is responsive to large-scale drivers that are less sensitive to economic cycles. Furthermore, we drive our business to have the right mix of products and services by seeking a good combination of original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) and after-market participation, a balance between products and services, and a proper global distribution.
 
Our growth strategy is centered on both organic and acquisition growth. Our ability to grow organically stems from our value-based product development process, new and existing technologies, distribution capabilities, customer relationships and strong market positions. In addition to our growth initiatives, we have a number of strategic initiatives within the framework of the ITT Management System aimed at enhancing our operational performance. These include global sourcing, footprint rationalization and realignment, Six Sigma and lean fulfillment.
 
Our three principal business segments are Fluid Technology, Defense Electronics & Services, and Motion & Flow Control.
 
 
We believe that some markets we serve are slowing as a result of the unprecedented credit crisis and projected softening of the global economic environment. In response to anticipated market conditions, we expect to accelerate restructuring activities across our businesses during the fourth quarter. These actions will reduce capacity and costs, optimize our manufacturing footprint and simplify our infrastructure.
 
Despite these actions, we will remain focused on our strategic long-term growth initiatives, and deployment of operational processes, which contribute to our continuous improvement.
 
Overall, we expect 2008 revenues to increase to between $11.5 billion and $11.6 billion. Revenues in the Defense Electronics & Services business segment are expected to grow between $6.1 billion and $6.2 billion led by continued growth in the Advanced Engineering & Sciences and Systems divisions and the integration of the newly acquired EDO Corporation (“EDO”). The Fluid Technology business segment expects to grow revenues between $3.7 billion and $3.8 billion due to growth in the Water & Wastewater and Industrial Process businesses. In the Motion & Flow Control business segment, revenues of approximately $1.6 billion are expected, with growth largely attributable to the integration of International Motion Control, Inc. (“IMC”) into the segment.
 
Summarized below is information on each of the three business segments, including markets served, goods and services provided, relevant factors that could impact results, business challenges, areas of focus and selected financial data.
 
 
Fluid Technology is a leading global provider of fluid systems and solutions, including the design, development, production, sale and after-sale support of a broad range of pumps, mixers, controls and treatment systems

Sales and revenues increased $698.1 or 32.0% to $2,879.3 for the third quarter of 2008, over the same prior year period. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation (“constant currency basis”), sales and revenues for the third quarter increased $660.0. Sales and revenues from acquired companies, including EDO (acquired during the fourth quarter of 2007) and IMC (acquired during the third quarter of 2007), contributed $491.0 during the third quarter of 2008. Organic sales and revenues (defined as sales and revenues from existing businesses on a constant currency basis) contributed $169.0 to our overall revenue growth, primarily due to higher volume and price, including the impact of new products and programs.
 
Sales and revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 increased $2,275.2 to $8,749.8, representing a 35.1% increase over the same prior year period. On a constant currency basis, sales and revenues increased $2,083.3, including contributions from acquisitions of $1,563.6. Organic sales and revenues grew $519.7 over 2007, primarily attributable to higher volume and price, and the impact of new products and programs.
 
The following table further illustrates the impact of organic growth, acquisitions, and foreign currency translation fluctuations on sales and revenues during these periods.

During the third quarter of 2008, we received orders of $3,339.6, an increase of $961.2 or 40.4% over the same prior year period. On a constant currency basis, orders grew $918.8 or 38.6%. This increase was attributable to organic growth of $305.9 or 12.9%, including contributions from each of our business segments, and orders from acquisitions of $612.9 or 25.7%, including the addition of EDO and IMC. Orders received during the first nine months of 2008 increased $2,443.2 or 38.2% over the prior year, including $1,319.9 or 20.6% from acquisitions, and organic growth of $920.2 or 14.4%. Foreign currency translation had a positive impact of 1.8% and 3.2% for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively.
 
 
Costs of sales and revenues were $2,068.6 and $6,311.1 for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively. This represents increases of $528.5 or 34.3% and $1,704.2 or 37.0% over the same prior year periods. These increases were primarily attributable to the acquisitions of EDO and IMC, higher sales volume and an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange translation.
 
Gross profit for the third quarter of 2008 was $810.7, a 26.5% increase compared to $641.1 during the same prior year period. Gross profit for the first nine months of 2008 was $2,438.7, a 30.6% increase compared to $1,867.7 during the same prior year period. Gross margin was 28.2% and 27.9% for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, compared to 29.4% and 28.8% over the same prior year periods. The year-over-year decreases were driven by higher production costs and unfavorable sales mix, but were partially offset by our productivity and strategic initiatives, including our efforts to improve supply chain productivity and control material costs.
 
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) were $417.0 and $1,283.4 for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, an increase of $89.4 and $304.9 over the same prior year period. The year-over-year increases were primarily attributable to the acquisitions of EDO and IMC, and a negative impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. SG&A as a percent of sales was 14.5% and 14.7% for the third quarter and first nine months of 2008, compared to 15.0% and 15.1% during the same prior year periods.

Research and development expenses (“R&D”) were $60.7 and $172.5 for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, compared to $46.8 and $129.9 during the same prior year periods. The year-over-year increases were primarily attributable to the acquisitions of EDO and IMC. R&D expense as a percentage of sales was consistent over the same periods as we continued our efforts to support product development.
 
 
Operating income increased $68.5 or 26.4% and $238.7 or 32.8% during the third quarter and first nine months of 2008 over the same prior year periods. These increases were largely due to the impact from the EDO and IMC acquisitions. In addition, organic contributions were realized at each business segment. These contributions were primarily attributable to higher sales volumes and price, benefits from operating efficiencies, and cost savings initiatives, partially offset by unfavorable sales mix, and increased SG&A expenses.
 
Operating margin decreased 50 basis points to 11.4% and 10 basis points to 11.1% for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, over the same prior year periods. These results primarily reflect the benefits from operating efficiencies and cost savings initiatives, partially offset by unfavorable sales mix, and the impact of acquisitions (higher amortization of intangible assets).
 
 
Interest expense during the third quarter and first nine months of 2008 increased $3.5 and $32.6, respectively, compared to the same prior year periods. These increases were primarily attributable to higher levels of debt, reflecting our funding for acquisitions and capital expenditures during the periods, and tax related charges partially offset by lower interest rates during the current year. In addition, partially offsetting the nine month year-over-year variance is a decrease in accrued interest of $7.0 as a result of the settlement of a tax examination during the second quarter of 2007.
 
We recorded interest income of $8.3 and $24.6 for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively. This represents year-over-year decreases of $4.3 and $6.4, respectively, which were primarily attributable to a lower average balance of cash and cash equivalents during the second and third quarters of 2008.
 
 
Income tax expense for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008 was $98.6 and $279.9, respectively, an increase of $25.5 and $104.6 over the same prior year periods. The effective tax rate for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008 was 32.5% and 31.8%, respectively, compared to 30.2% and 25.8% during the prior year.
 
The year-over-year tax expense increases primarily reflect the impact of a tax benefit of $44.3 resulting from the settlement of a tax examination during the second quarter of 2007, and higher earnings during the 2008 periods, partially offset by the impact of other tax-related items.
 
The year-over-year effective tax rate increases primarily reflect the impact of the previously discussed 2007 tax benefit, partially offset by a change in earnings mix and the impact of other tax-related items.

During the third quarter and first nine months of 2008, the Fluid Technology business segment recognized sales and revenues on a constant currency basis of $924.7 and $2,731.6, respectively, an increase of $66.3 or 7.7% and $207.7 or 8.3% over the same 2007 periods. Organic sales grew by $64.0 or 7.5% and $201.3 or 8.0% over the same periods. Factors driving these contributions were as follows:
 
Water & Wastewater Organic sales increased $29.5 or 7.6% and $83.0 or 7.1% for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, due to strength in water/wastewater transport, particularly within the municipal market, and dewatering, primarily attributable to the mining market. Despite strong results during 2008, order rates suggest a slowing demand within the municipal market.
 
Residential & Commercial Water Organic sales increased $12.4 or 4.1% and $47.2 or 5.4% for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, due to strength in commercial and agriculture/irrigation applications, offset by weakness in the Americas residential market.
 
Industrial Process Organic sales increased by $24.5 or 14.1% and $78.5 or 15.3% for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, due to strength in our industrial operations, particularly within the chemical, oil and gas, power and mining markets.

The Fluid Technology business segment received orders of $1,017.1 for the third quarter of 2008, an increase of $87.3 or 9.4% over 2007, including $26.4 and $2.3 attributable to the impact of foreign currency translation and acquisitions, respectively. Organic orders increased $58.6 or 6.3% over the same prior year period. Orders received during the first nine months of 2008 increased $393.2 or 14.3% over the prior year with $251.5 or 9.1% attributable to organic growth, an impact of $134.7 or 4.9% from foreign currency translation, and $7.0 due to acquisitions.
 
Operating income for the third quarter and first nine months of 2008 increased $21.5 or 19.4% and $65.7 or 21.4%, respectively, over 2007. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation/transaction and contributions from acquisitions, operating income increased $12.3 or 11.1% and $57.8 or 18.8%, respectively, over the same periods. These increases were attributable to higher sales volume and price, productivity improvements and strategic initiatives, partially offset by material and labor cost increases, and a negative impact from sales mix.
 
The Fluid Technology business segment reported third quarter 2008 operating margins of 13.9%, an increase of 100 basis points over the same prior year period. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation/transaction and contributions from acquisitions, operating margins increased 40 basis points to 13.3% for the third quarter of 2008. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2008, the Fluid Technology business segment reported operating margins of 13.1%, an increase of 90 basis points over 2007. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation/transaction and contributions from acquisitions, operating margins increased 120 basis points to 13.4% over the same period. The improved profitability over both periods was primarily attributable to the benefit from productivity improvements and strategic initiatives, partially offset by a negative impact from sales mix.
 
 
For the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2008, sales and revenues from the Defense Electronics & Services business segment increased $528.0 or 52.2% and $1,648.0 or 55.0%, respectively, over the same prior year periods. The following table illustrates the impact of organic growth, and acquisitions on sales and revenues during these periods.

Acquisitions contributed $440.8 and $1,390.8 in sales and revenues for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008. These contributions were primarily attributable to the EDO acquisition. Organic sales increased $87.6 or 8.7% and $257.8 or 8.6% during the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, compared to 2007. These increases were attributable to sales growth in our Advanced Engineering & Sciences business, driven by both existing contracts and new contracts, such as the Federal Aviation Administration contract to build the next generation air-traffic control system, and contributions from the Communications Systems, driven by strength in international sales, and the Systems businesses. During the third quarter of 2008, the Space Systems business contributed positively to the overall increase, driven by GPS Navigation and the GeoEye projects, but declined year-over-year for the first nine months of 2008, due to other government programs. Electronic Systems was negatively impacted during the third quarter of 2008 primarily due to timing of programs.
 
The Defense Electronics & Services business segment received orders of $1,921.3 for the third quarter of 2008, an increase of $795.2 or 70.6% over 2007, including $562.7 or 50.0% attributable to acquisitions. Organic orders increased $232.2 or 20.6% over the same prior year period. Orders received during the first nine months of 2008 increased $1,767.0 or 66.1% over the prior year with $1,144.6 or 42.8% attributable to acquisitions, and organic growth of $622.1 or 23.3%.
 
Fluctuations in sales and order growth within the Defense Electronics & Services business segment illustrate how the level of activity related to programs can, at times, be affected by timing within government funding authorization and project evaluation cycles.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2008 increased $50.7 or 37.0% over the same prior year period. Organic operating income increased $16.1 or 11.7%. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2008, operating income increased $162.2 or 43.0% over 2007. Organic operating income increased $53.9 or 14.3%. These increases were primarily attributable to the previously mentioned organic sales growth.
 
The Defense Electronics & Services business segment reported third quarter 2008 operating margins of 12.2%, a decrease of 140 basis points compared to 2007, and reported operating margins of 11.6% for the first nine months of 2008, a decrease of 100 basis points from the same prior year period. These decreases were primarily attributable to higher amortization of intangible assets recognized as a result of the EDO acquisition. Excluding the impact of acquisitions, operating margins grew 30 and 60 basis points over the same periods.
 
 
For the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2008, sales and revenues from the Motion & Flow Control business segment increased $79.2 or 25.2% and $294.5 or 30.6%, respectively, over the same prior year periods, primarily due to the acquisition of IMC. The following table illustrates the impact of organic growth, acquisitions, and foreign currency translation fluctuations on sales and revenues during these periods.

During the third quarter and first nine months of 2008, the Motion & Flow Control business segment recognized sales and revenues on a constant currency basis of $379.9 and $1,188.8 respectively. This represents an increases of $65.3 or 20.8% and $226.5 or 23.5% over the same 2007 periods, including organic sales growth of $17.4 or 5.5% and $60.1 or 6.2%, respectively. Factors driving these contributions were as follows:
 
Friction Technologies Organic sales increased $7.5 or 8.5% and $37.3 or 12.8% for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008. These increases were attributable to higher volumes of OEM components (new platform wins), and aftermarket brake pad sales. These contributions were partially offset by a general slowdown during the third quarter of 2008 in the European and North American automotive markets.
 
Interconnect Solutions Organic sales increased on higher volumes by $8.0 or 7.5% for the quarter ended September 30, 2008, primarily attributable to strength in the military, aerospace and oil exploration markets in North America and in the medical and rail markets in Asia while organic sales increased $16.3 or 5.1% for the nine month period ended September 30, 2008, primarily attributable to the Americas and Asia markets (strength in medical, defense, aerospace, rail and industrial markets, particularly within the oil & gas industry).
 
Flow Control Organic sales decreased $5.5 or 9.1% and $11.9 or 6.2% for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008. These decreases were primarily attributable to an overall decline in the bath, spa and whirlpool markets. Although September 2008 year-to-date international marine and recreational vehicle market sales have increased year-over-year, third quarter results included declines in both our domestic and international markets. Declining market conditions are expected to continue in the fourth quarter of 2008. Partially offsetting these declines are positive contributions from the domestic beverage market.

Aerospace Controls Organic sales increased $2.9 or 11.1% and $10.8 or 14.4% for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, driven by strength in commercial/aerospace aftermarket products, partially offset by a negative impact from the current Boeing labor strike.
 
Energy Absorption Organic sales increased $3.4 or 11.3% and $6.6 or 8.0% for the quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively, driven by strength in the railway and bus and truck markets, partially offset by softness in automobile aftermarket product sales.
 
The Motion & Flow Control business segment received orders of $402.3 for the third quarter of 2008, an increase of $76.6 or 23.5% over 2007, including $47.9 or 14.7% and $15.6 or 4.8% attributable to the impact of acquisitions and foreign currency translation, respectively. Organic orders increased $13.1 or 4.0% over the same prior year period. Orders received during the first nine months of 2008 increased $282.3 or 28.7% over the prior year with $168.3 or 17.1% attributable to acquisitions, an impact of $68.3 or 6.9% from foreign currency translation, and organic growth of $45.7 or 4.6%.
 
Operating income for the third quarter and first nine months of 2008 increased $11.5 or 25.9% and $45.9 or 30.7%, respectively, over 2007. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation/transaction and contributions from acquisitions, operating income decreased $2.5 or 5.6% and increased $9.0 or 6.0%, respectively, over the same periods. Higher volume and productivity improvements and strategic initiatives contributed positively to both periods, but were offset during the third quarter and partially offset during the first nine months of 2008 by higher material and labor costs and the negative impact from sales price.
 
The Motion & Flow Control business segment reported third quarter 2008 operating margins of 14.2%, an increase of 10 basis points over the same prior year period. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2008, operating margins were flat year-over-year at 15.5%. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation/transaction and contributions from acquisitions, operating margins were flat year-over-year at 14.1% and 15.5% for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008, respectively. These results include investments in marketing, research and development and other business related activities, offset by benefits from productivity improvements and strategic initiatives.
 
 
Corporate expenses of $47.9 and $140.9 for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2008 increased $15.2 and $35.1, respectively, compared to the same prior year periods, primarily reflecting higher costs associated with legacy litigation matters, as well as corporate initiatives, including expanded resources and review procedures in the tax accounting function.
 
Restructuring and Asset Impairment Charges
 
 
During the third quarter of 2008, we recognized a $1.1 impairment charge related to one of our Motion & Flow Control businesses. This charge reflects the reduction of our expected future earnings for this business.
 
 
Three Months Ended September 30
 
During the third quarter of 2008, we recorded a net restructuring charge of $3.9, reflecting costs of $1.9 related to new actions and $2.0 related to prior actions.

Table of Contents

total 347, including 172 factory workers, 160 office workers and 15 management employees. The costs associated with the prior years’ plans primarily reflect additional costs related to an adjustment to the write-off of leased space as well as asset impairments and severance costs.
 
The projected future savings from restructuring actions announced during the first nine months of 2007 are approximately $8 during 2007 and $135 between 2008 and 2012. The savings primarily represent lower salary and wage expenditures and will be reflected in “Costs of Sales and Revenues” and “Selling, General and Administrative Expenses.”
 
Payments of $14.1 were made during the first nine months of 2007 related to actions announced during that period.
 
In response to anticipated market conditions, we expect to accelerate restructuring activities across our businesses during the fourth quarter of 2008. Restructuring and other related charges associated with these actions is expected to be approximately $74.0.
 
 
The determination of projected benefit obligations and the recognition of expenses related to pension and other postretirement obligations are dependent on assumptions used in calculating these amounts. These assumptions include: discount rates, expected rates of return on plan assets, rate of future compensation increases, mortality, termination, health care inflation trend rates and other factors. Management develops each assumption using relevant company experience in conjunction with market related data for each individual country in which such plans exist. All assumptions are reviewed periodically with third party actuarial consultants and adjusted as necessary.
 
Recent deterioration in the securities markets has impacted the value of the assets included in our defined benefit pension plans, the effect of which has not been reflected in the accompanying consolidated condensed financial statements as of and for the nine months ended September 30, 2008, based on the provisions of SFAS No. 158 “Employers’ Accounting for Defined Benefit Pension and Other Postretirement Plans — an amendment of FASB Statements No. 87, 88, 106 and 132(R)”, which require plan assets and obligations to be re-measured at December 31, 2008. Should values not recover before December 31, 2008, the decline in fair value of our plans would result in increased total pension costs for 2009 as compared to total pension costs expected during 2008. Further, the decline in fair value may result in additional cash contributions during 2009 in accordance with the U.S. Pension Protection Act of 2006 or other international retirement plan funding requirements.
 
 
Our principal source of liquidity is operating cash flows, and we have demonstrated the ability to meet any additional funding requirements through the utilization of various debt vehicles, including the issuance of commercial paper. Our funding needs are monitored and strategies are executed to meet overall cash requirements, including the management of our capital structure on a short and long-term basis. We believe that available cash, committed credit facilities and access to the public debt markets provide adequate short-term and long-term liquidity.
 
We manage our worldwide cash requirements considering available funds among the many subsidiaries through which we conduct business and the cost effectiveness with which those funds can be accessed. We have and will continue to transfer cash from those subsidiaries to U.S. and to other international subsidiaries when it is cost effective to do so.
 
Significant factors that affect our overall management of liquidity include the adequacy of commercial paper and bank lines of credit, and the ability to attract long-term capital at satisfactory terms.
 
Recent declines in the worldwide debt and equity markets have had an adverse impact on market participants including, among other things, volatility in security prices, diminished liquidity, and limited access to funding. We have assessed the implications of these factors on our current business and determined that there has not been a significant impact to our financial position, results of operations, or liquidity during the first nine months of 2008. If our access to the commercial paper market is adversely affected, we believe that alternative sources of liquidity,

including available cash and existing committed credit facilities, would be sufficient to meet our short-term funding requirements.
 
Current debt ratios have positioned us to grow our business with investments for organic growth and through strategic acquisitions, while providing the ability to return value to shareholders through increased dividends and share repurchases.

In November 2005, ITT entered into a five-year revolving credit agreement (the “November 2005 Credit Facility”) in the aggregate principal amount of $1.25 billion. Effective November 8, 2007, ITT exercised an option to increase the principal amount under this agreement to $1.75 billion. In March 2008, ITT entered into a new 364-day revolving credit agreement (the “March 2008 Credit Facility”), providing an additional $1.0 billion principal amount of available borrowings. As a result, the maximum amount of outstanding borrowings under both facilities is now $2.75 billion.
 
The provisions of this agreement require that we maintain an interest coverage ratio, as defined, of 3.5 times. At September 30, 2008, we were in compliance with our debt covenants.
 
In December 2007, the ITT Board of Directors approved commercial paper borrowings, using the November 2005 Credit Agreement as backup, to increase up to $1.75 billion. In addition, the ITT Board of Directors approved a further increase of $1.0 billion of commercial paper borrowings, which would be backed up by a new credit facility. As a result, we may issue up to $2.75 billion of commercial paper.
 
Our policy is to maintain unused committed bank lines of credit in an amount greater than outstanding commercial paper balances. Generally, the revolving credit agreements serve as backup for our commercial paper program; however, we may draw on any excess funds via these facilities in order to satisfy our cash requirements. As of September 30, 2008, our outstanding commercial paper was supported by 60% of funds available to us under our credit facilities, with the remaining 40% unreserved and available to us at our discretion.

Cash and cash equivalents declined $882.7 to $957.3 during the first nine months of 2008. The $896.0 of cash ITT generated from operating activities was more than offset by repayment of $1,254.1 of short-term debt, funding acquisitions and capital investments in the business, while at the same time returning value to the shareholders through dividend payments which increased 25% from 2007.
 
 
Cash provided by operating activities in the first nine months of 2008 increased $405.9 from the prior year. This significant increase is partially due to a $176.2 increase in income from continuing operations excluding non-cash increases in depreciation and amortization, combined with a reduction in contributions to the U.S. Salaried Pension Plan (reflected within the change of other current and non-current assets). There were no contributions to the U.S. Salaried Pension Plan made in 2008 as compared to $50.0 in 2007. Also driving the increase is a higher cash benefit from accrued and deferred taxes of $111.0 primarily related to higher tax liabilities combined with a $99.5 reduction in the use of cash from accounts receivable, primarily driven by improved cash collections within the Fluid Technology business segment.
 
Additionally, EDO businesses were a significant contribution underlying the overall operating cash flow performance.
 
 
 
Capital expenditures during the first nine months of 2008 were $136.6, an increase of $28.4 as compared to the first nine months of 2007. The increase is driven by higher spending of $15.9 in the Motion & Flow Control business segments as a result of a new research and development facility in Europe, combined with timing of investments as compared to last year, and an increase of $8.9 in the Defense Electronics & Services business segment primarily due to the addition of EDO 2008 results. Additionally, we invested $10.7 related to the leasehold improvements for ITT’s new headquarters that consolidates its corporate headquarters and the headquarters operations of its Fluid Technology and Motion & Flow Control business segments.
 
 
During the first nine months of 2008, we spent $194.8 related to additional costs for the EDO acquisition within the Defense Electronics & Services business segment, largely for repayment of debt acquired. We also spent $46.2 on acquisitions of several other smaller companies.
 
 
During the third quarter of 2007, we completed the sale of substantially all of the Switches businesses for net proceeds of $225.7.
 
We completed the sale of the remaining portion of the Switches businesses to the same buyer during the third quarter of 2008 for net proceeds of $5.1.

In the first nine months of 2008, we repurchased 1.2 shares for $75.0 in connection with our $1 billion share repurchase program. As of September 30, 2008 we had repurchased 7.1 shares for $430.8 under our $1 billion share repurchase program, including commission fees. This program replaces our previous practice of covering shares granted or exercised in the context of ITT’s performance incentive plans. The program is consistent with our capital allocation process, which is centered on those investments necessary to grow our businesses organically and through acquisitions, while also providing cash returns to shareholders.
 
 
The preparation of ITT’s financial statements, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. ITT believes the most complex and sensitive judgments, because of their significance to the Consolidated Financial Statements, result primarily from the need to make estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain. Management’s Discussion and Analysis and Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K describe the significant accounting estimates and policies used in preparation of the Consolidated Financial Statements. Actual results in these areas could differ from management’s estimates. There have been no significant changes in ITT’s critical accounting policies or estimates during the first nine months of 2008.
 
 
ITT adopted SFAS No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements” (“SFAS 157”) effective January 1, 2008. This statement, issued by the FASB in September 2006, defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands the related disclosure requirements. However, the FASB issued FASB Staff Positions (“FSP”) 157-1 and 157-2. FSP 157-1 amends SFAS 157 to exclude FASB No. 13, “Accounting for Leases,” and its related interpretive accounting pronouncements that address leasing transactions, while FSP-2 delays the effective date of SFAS 157 for all nonfinancial assets and nonfinancial liabilities, except those that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis, until fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008. Furthermore, the FASB has proposed FSP 157-c which clarifies the principles in SFAS 157 on the fair value measurement of liabilities. Public comments on FSP 157-c were due in February 2008, although the FASB has since placed FSP-157-c under redeliberations. Additionally, on October 3, 2008, the FASB proposed FSP 157-d, which amends SFAS 157 to give an example of how to determine the fair value of a financial asset in an inactive market. FSP 157-d does not change the fair value measurement principles in SFAS 157. SFAS 157 did not have a material effect on ITT’s financial statements for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 and ITT does not expect this statement to have a material effect on its financial statements in future periods.
 
ITT adopted SFAS No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” (“SFAS 159”) effective January 1, 2008. SFAS 159, issued by the FASB in February 2007, permits an entity to measure certain financial assets and financial liabilities at fair value. Under SFAS 159, entities electing the fair value option will report unrealized gains and losses in earnings as of each subsequent reporting date. The fair value option may be elected on

Table of Contents

an instrument-by-instrument basis with few exceptions, as long as it is applied to the instrument in its entirety. SFAS 159 establishes presentation and disclosure requirements to help financial statement users understand the effect of an entity’s election on its earnings. SFAS 159 requires prospective application. If an entity elects the fair value option for items existing as of the date of adoption, the difference between their carrying amount and fair value should be included in a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings. SFAS 159 did not have a material effect on ITT’s financial statements for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 and ITT does not expect this statement to have a material effect on its financial statements in future periods.
 
In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 141 (revised 2007), “Business Combinations” (“SFAS 141(R)”), which replaces SFAS No. 141, “Business Combinations.” SFAS 141(R) retains the fundamental requirements in SFAS 141 that the acquisition method of accounting be used for all business combinations and for an acquirer to be identified for each business combination. However, SFAS 141(R) changes the method of applying the acquisition method in a number of significant areas, including that acquisition costs will generally be expensed as incurred; noncontrolling interests will be valued at fair value at the acquisition date; in-process research and development will be recorded at fair value as an indefinite-lived intangible asset at the acquisition date; restructuring costs associated with a business combination will generally be expensed subsequent to the acquisition date; and changes in deferred tax asset valuation allowances and income tax uncertainties after the acquisition date generally will affect income tax expense. SFAS 141(R) is effective on a prospective basis for all business combinations for which the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual period subsequent to December 15, 2008, with the exception of the accounting for valuation allowances on deferred taxes and acquired tax contingencies. SFAS 141(R) amends SFAS No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes,” such that adjustments made to valuation allowances on deferred taxes and acquired tax contingencies associated with acquisitions that closed prior to the effective date of SFAS 141(R) would also apply the provisions of SFAS 141(R). Early adoption of SFAS 141(R) is not permitted. We are evaluating the potential impact of this statement.
 
In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 160, “Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements — an amendment of ARB No. 51.” This statement requires the recognition of a noncontrolling interest (minority interest) as a separate component within equity within the consolidated balance sheet. It also requires the amount of consolidated net income attributable to the parent and the noncontrolling interest be clearly identified and presented within the consolidated statement of income. This statement also amends certain of ARB No. 51’s consolidation procedures to make them consistent with the requirements of SFAS 141(R). SFAS 160 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning on or after December 15, 2008. Earlier adoption is prohibited. We are evaluating the potential impact of this statement.
 
In March 2008, the FASB issued SFAS No. 161, “Disclosures about Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities — an amendment of FASB Statement No. 133.” This statement amends SFAS No. 133 by requiring enhanced disclosures about an entity’s derivative instruments and hedging activities, but does not change SFAS No. 133’s scope or accounting. SFAS No. 161 requires increased qualitative, quantitative and credit-risk disclosures about the entity’s derivative instruments and hedging activities. SFAS 161 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after November 15, 2008, with earlier adoption permitted. We are evaluating the potential impact of this statement.
 
In June 2008, the FASB issued FSP No. EITF 03-6-1, “Determining Whether Instruments Granted in Share-Based Payment Transactions are Participating Securities”. This FSP concluded that all outstanding unvested share-based payment awards that contain rights to nonforfeitable dividends participate in undistributed earnings with common shareholders and therefore are considered participating securities for purposes of computing earnings per share. Entities that have participating securities that are not convertible into common stock are required to use the “two class” method of computing earnings per share. The two-class method is an earnings allocation formula that determines earnings per share for each class of common stock and participating security according to dividends declared (or accumulated) and participation rights in undistributed earnings. This FSP is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is prohibited. We are evaluating the potential impact of this statement.
 
 
Our contractual obligations and commitments have not changed materially from those disclosed in the 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

“Safe Harbor Statement” under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (“the Act”):
 
Certain material presented herein includes forward-looking statements intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Act. These forward-looking statements include statements that describe our business strategy, outlook, objectives, plans, intentions or goals, and any discussion of future operating or financial performance. Whenever used words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “target” and other terms of similar meaning are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are uncertain and to some extent unpredictable, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied from, such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause results to differ materially from those anticipated include general global economic conditions, decline in consumer spending, interest and foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, availability of commodities, supplies and raw materials, competition, acquisitions or divestitures, changes in government defense budgets, employment and pension matters, contingencies related to actual or alleged environmental contamination, claims and concerns, intellectual property matters, personal injury claims, governmental investigations, tax obligations and income tax accounting, and changes in generally accepted accounting principles. Recent distress in the financial markets has had an adverse impact on the availability of credit and liquidity resources. Continued market deterioration could jeopardize certain counterparty obligations, including those of our insurers and financial institutions. Other factors are more thoroughly set forth in Item 1. Business, Item 1 A. Risk Factors and Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations — Forward-Looking Statements in the ITT Corporation Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007, and other ITT filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
 
Item 3.
QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
 
There has been no material change in the information concerning market risk as stated in our 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
 
Item 4.
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
 
The Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) of the Company have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, such officers have concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective in identifying, on a timely basis, material information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act.
 
 
The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Act. Management assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2008. Based on that assessment, the Company’s management, including its CEO and CFO, concluded that the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting were not effective because it has not yet been concluded that the material weakness in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting reported as of December 31, 2007 in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K has been remediated.
 
 
There have been no significant changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting identified during the nine months ended September 30, 2008, except for the implementation of measures described below under “Remediation of Material Weakness.”


40


Table of Contents

 
The Company has implemented, or plans to implement, certain measures to remediate the material weakness relating to the Company’s income tax closing process identified in the Company’s 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K. As of the date of the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the following measures are completed or in process:
 
  •  Conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the income tax department organizational structure and processes
 
  •  Expanding technical resources and enhancing review procedures in the income tax accounting function
 
  •  Assessed the existing internal control structure and implementing new controls, including enhanced reconciliations and analyses of income tax provisions and payable and deferred account balances.
 
The Company anticipates that these remediation actions represent ongoing improvement measures. Furthermore, while the Company has taken steps to remediate the material weaknesses, these steps may not be adequate to fully remediate those weaknesses, and additional measures may be required. The effectiveness of its remediation efforts will not be known until the Company can test those controls in connection with the management tests of internal controls over financial reporting that the Company will perform as of December 31, 2008.

LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
The following should be read in conjunction with Note 15 “Commitments and Contingencies” to the unaudited interim Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements in Part I of this report, as well as Part I, Item 3 of the ITT 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
 
ITT Corporation and its subsidiaries from time to time are involved in legal proceedings that are incidental to the operation of their businesses. Some of these proceedings allege damages relating to environmental liabilities, intellectual property matters, copyright infringement, personal injury claims, employment and pension matters, government contract issues and commercial or contractual disputes, sometimes related to acquisitions or divestitures. ITT will continue to vigorously defend itself against all claims. Although the ultimate outcome of any legal matter cannot be predicted with certainty, based on present information including our assessment of the merits of the particular claim, as well as our current reserves and insurance coverage, we do not expect that such legal proceedings will have any material adverse impact on the cash flow, results of operations, or financial condition of ITT on a consolidated basis in the foreseeable future.

(2) On October 27, 2006, we announced a three-year $1 billion share repurchase program. This program replaces our previous practice of covering shares granted or exercised in the context of ITT’s performance incentive plans. The program is consistent with our capital allocation process, which is centered on those investments necessary to grow our businesses organically and through acquisitions, while also providing cash returns to shareholders. Our strategy for cash flow utilization is to pay dividends, complete strategic acquisitions, invest in our business, repay debt, and repurchase common stock to cover option exercises and restricted stock issuances and make discretionary repurchases of our common stock. As of September 30, 2008, we had repurchased 7.1 million shares for $430.8, including commission fees, under our $1 billion share repurchase program.
