NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements at September 30, 2020 and for the quarters and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 are unaudited, but in the opinion of management include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2019 was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States. The results reported in these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should not necessarily be taken as indicative of results that may be expected for the entire year. The financial information included herein should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes in our registration statement on Form 10 (File No. 001-39221), initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 7, 2020, as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed on March 11, 2020 ("Form 10").

Note 1: Description of Business and Separation from United Technologies Corporation

Otis (as defined below) is the world’s largest elevator and escalator manufacturing, installation and service company. Our operations are classified into two segments: New Equipment and Service. Through the New Equipment segment, we design, manufacture, sell and install a wide range of passenger and freight elevators, as well as escalators and moving walkways, for residential and commercial building and infrastructure projects. The Service segment provides maintenance and repair services for both our products and those of other manufacturers, and provides modernization services to upgrade elevators and escalators.

On November 26, 2018, United Technologies Corporation, subsequently renamed to Raytheon Technologies Corporation on April 3, 2020 ("UTC"), announced its intention to spin-off its Otis reportable segment into a separate publicly-traded company (the "Separation"). On April 3, 2020, the Company became an independent publicly-traded company through a pro-rata distribution of 0.5 shares of Otis common stock for every share of UTC common stock held at the close of business on the record date of March 19, 2020 (the "Distribution"). Otis began to trade as a separate public company (New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE"): OTIS) on April 3, 2020.

Unless the context otherwise requires, references to "Otis", "we", "us", "our" and "the Company" refer to (i) Otis Worldwide Corporation's business (the "Business") prior to the Separation and (ii) Otis Worldwide Corporation and its subsidiaries following the Separation, as applicable.

The Separation was completed pursuant to a Separation and Distribution Agreement ("Separation Agreement") and other agreements with UTC related to the Separation, including but not limited to a transition services agreement (the "Transition Service Agreement" or "TSA"), a tax matters agreement (the "Tax Matters Agreement" or "TMA"), an employee matters agreement (the "Employee Matters Agreement" or "EMA") and an intellectual property agreement (the "Intellectual Property Agreement"). For further discussion on these agreements, see Note 5.

Note 2: Basis of Presentation

Prior to the Separation on April 3, 2020, our historical financial statements were prepared on a standalone combined basis and were derived from the consolidated financial statements and accounting records of UTC. For the period subsequent to April 3, 2020, our financial statements are presented on a consolidated basis as the Company became a standalone public company (collectively, the financial statements for all periods presented, including the historical results of the Company prior to April 3, 2020, are now referred to as "Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements" to reflect this change). They have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X and accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been omitted.

11

Table of Contents
Prior to the Separation on April 3, 2020, the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations included all revenues and costs directly attributable to Otis, including costs for facilities, functions and services used by Otis. Costs for certain functions and services performed by centralized UTC organizations were directly charged to Otis based on specific identification when possible or based on a reasonable allocation driver such as net sales, headcount, usage or other allocation methods. All charges and allocations for facilities, functions and services performed by UTC organizations have been deemed settled in cash by Otis to UTC in the period in which the cost was recorded on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Current and deferred income taxes were determined based on the standalone results of Otis. However, because the Company was included in UTC’s tax group in certain jurisdictions, the Company's actual tax balances may differ from those reported. The Company's portion of its domestic income taxes and certain income taxes for jurisdictions outside the United States are deemed to have been settled in the period the related tax expense was recorded prior to the Separation.

All significant intracompany accounts and transactions within the Company have been eliminated in the preparation of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Prior to the Separation, the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company include assets and liabilities that have been determined to be specifically or otherwise attributable to the Company.

Certain amounts presented in the Form 10 have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation, which are immaterial.

Risks and Uncertainties. In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of the novel strain of coronavirus ("COVID-19"), a global pandemic and recommended a number of restrictive measures to contain the spread, which were implemented to different degrees by governments across the world. As the global pandemic continues, the Company continues to closely monitor and manage the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its business globally. It is difficult to estimate at this time the duration and extent of the impact of the pandemic on the Company's business, financial position, cash flow and results of operations. The results of our operations and overall financial performance were impacted during the quarter ended and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Due to existing conditions and uncertainty, the Company believes that COVID-19 will have an impact on its business, cash flow and results of operations at least for the remainder of the year ending December 31, 2020. The extent of the impact will depend largely on future developments, which are highly uncertain, including the emergence of additional information concerning the severity of the outbreak, timing, efficacy and availability of a vaccine, actions taken by government authorities to further contain the outbreak or address its impact and its longer-term impacts on the global economy, among other factors.

Use of Estimates. We assessed certain accounting matters that generally require consideration of forecasted financial information in the context of the information reasonably available to us and the unknown future impacts of COVID-19 at September 30, 2020 and through the date of this report. The accounting matters assessed included, but were not limited to, our allowance for credit losses, the carrying value of our goodwill and other long-lived assets, financial assets and revenue recognition. While there was not a material impact to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as of and for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020 resulting from our assessments of these matters, future assessment of our current expectations at that time of the magnitude and duration of COVID-19, as well as other factors, could result in material impacts to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in future reporting periods.

Note 3: Earnings per Share

On April 3, 2020, the date of consummation of the Separation, 433,079,455 shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.01 per share, were distributed to UTC shareholders of record as of March 19, 2020. This share amount is being utilized for the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share for all periods presented prior to the Separation as all common stock was owned by UTC prior to the Separation. For the 2019 quarter and year to date calculations, these shares are treated as issued and outstanding at January 1, 2019 for purposes of calculating historical basic and diluted earnings per share.

Prior to the Separation, Otis employees participated in UTC's equity incentive plans, pursuant to which they were granted stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock units, and performance-based restricted stock units. All awards granted under these plans related to UTC common shares. Upon Separation, outstanding awards held by Otis employees under UTC's equity incentive plans were converted in accordance with the EMA using the conversion ratios set forth in the EMA. Depending on whether the awards held on the Separation date were in an unvested or vested status, Otis employees either received converted awards solely in Otis based shares (unvested status) or a combination of Otis, UTC and Carrier Global Corporation ("Carrier") share based awards (vested status). Former Otis employees, and current and former legacy UTC and Carrier employees, who on the Separation date were holding outstanding UTC awards in a vested status also received a combination of

Table of Contents
Otis, UTC and Carrier awards post-spin. The conversion methodology used was calculated in accordance with the EMA and with the purpose of maintaining the aggregate intrinsic value of the award immediately after the Separation when compared to the aggregate intrinsic value immediately prior to the Separation. See Note 10, for further detail.

For the purpose of the below diluted earnings per share computation, we only included the units associated with the converted Otis share-based awards. These awards were assumed to be outstanding beginning from April 3, 2020, the Separation date.

Earnings Per Share of Common Stock:
Basic:$0.61 $0.73 $1.51 $2.07 
Diluted:$0.61 $0.73 $1.51 $2.07 

The computation of diluted earnings per share excludes the effect of the potential exercise of stock awards, including stock appreciation rights and stock options, when the average market price of the common stock is lower than the exercise price of the related stock awards during the period because the effect would be anti-dilutive. In addition, the computation of diluted earnings per share excludes the effect of the potential exercise of stock awards when the awards' assumed proceeds exceed the average market price of the common shares during the period. There were 5.0 million and 4.8 million of anti-dilutive stock awards excluded from the computation for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively.

Note 4: Revenue Recognition

We account for revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 606: Revenue from Contracts with Customers.

Performance Obligations. The Company's revenue streams include new equipment, maintenance and repair and modernization (including related installation). New equipment, modernization and repair services revenue is typically recognized over time as we are enhancing an asset the customer controls. Maintenance revenue is recognized on a straight-line basis over the life of the maintenance contract.

For new equipment and modernization transactions, equipment and installation are typically procured in a single contract providing the customer with a complete installed elevator or escalator unit. The combination of equipment and installation are typically a single performance obligation. For repair services, the customer typically contracts for specific short-term services which form a single performance obligation. For these performance obligations, revenue is recognized over time using costs incurred to date relative to total estimated costs at completion in order to measure progress.

For maintenance contracts, given the continuous nature of the maintenance services throughout the year, we recognize revenue on maintenance contracts on a straight-line basis which aligns with the cost profile of these services.

Contract Assets and Liabilities. Contract assets reflect revenue recognized in advance of customer billing. Contract liabilities are recognized when a customer pays consideration, or we have a right to receive an amount of unconditional consideration, in advance of the satisfaction of performance obligations under the contract. We typically receive progress payments from our customers as we perform our work over time.
13

Table of Contents

Total Contract assets and Contract liabilities at September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 are as follows:
(dollars in millions)September 30, 2020December 31, 2019
Contract assets, current$481 $529 
Total contract assets481 529 
Contract liabilities, current2,503 2,270 
Contract liabilities, noncurrent (included within Other long-term liabilities)33 18 
Total contract liabilities 2,536 2,288 
Net contract liabilities$2,055 $1,759 

Contract assets decreased by $48 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 as a result of the progression of current contracts and timing of billing on customer contracts. Contract liabilities increased by $248 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 primarily due to contract billings in excess of revenue earned. In the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we recognized revenue of $1.5 billion related to the contract liabilities as of January 1, 2020 and as of January 1, 2019.

Remaining Performance Obligations ("RPO"). RPO represents the aggregate amount of total contract transaction price that is unsatisfied or partially unsatisfied. As of September 30, 2020, our total RPO was approximately $16.9 billion. Of the total RPO as of September 30, 2020, we expect approximately 90% will be recognized as sales over the following 24 months. On December 31, 2019, we had approximately $16.4 billion of remaining performance obligations, at which time we expected to recognize approximately 91% of these remaining performance obligations as sales in the next 24 months.

Note 5: Related Parties

In connection with the Separation as further described in Note 1, the Company entered into several agreements with UTC and Carrier, including a separation and distribution agreement that sets forth certain agreements with UTC and Carrier regarding the principal actions to be taken in connection with the Separation, including identifying the assets transferred, the liabilities assumed and the contracts transferred to each of UTC, Carrier and Otis as part of the Separation, and when and how these transfers and assumptions occurred. Other agreements that we entered into that govern aspects of our relationship with UTC and Carrier following the Separation include:

Transition Services Agreement. We entered into the TSA under which UTC provides the Company with certain services and we provide certain services to UTC for a limited time to help ensure an orderly transition following the Separation.

Tax Matters Agreement. We entered into the TMA with UTC and Carrier that governs the parties’ respective rights, responsibilities and obligations with respect to tax matters (including responsibility for taxes, entitlement to refunds, allocation of tax attributes, preparation of tax returns, control of tax contests and other tax matters). Subject to certain exceptions set forth in the TMA, Otis generally is responsible for federal, state and foreign taxes imposed on a separate return basis on Otis (or any of its subsidiaries) with respect to taxable periods (or portions thereof) that ended on or prior to the date of the Distribution. The TMA provides special rules that allocate responsibility for tax liabilities arising from a failure of the Separation transactions to qualify for tax-free treatment based on the reasons for such failure. The TMA also imposes restrictions on Otis during the two-year period following the Distribution that are intended to prevent certain transactions from failing to qualify as transactions that are generally tax-free.

Employee Matters Agreement and Intellectual Property Agreement. We also entered into the EMA, which allocated among Otis, UTC and Carrier the liabilities and responsibilities relating to employment matters, employee compensation and benefit plans and programs, and other related matters, and an intellectual property agreement with UTC and Carrier in connection with the Separation.

Net Transfers from (to) UTC and Separation Transactions.
