Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Amendments to Articles of Inc. or

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

(b), (c) On July 24, 2013, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Johnson Controls, Inc. (the "Company") approved certain changes relating to executive officers and directors, which are described more fully in the Company's press release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

As a result of the announced changes, the Company is reporting that Alex A. Molinaroli, the Company's current Vice Chairman has been elected Chief Executive Officer and President of the Company effective October 1, 2013. Further, Mr. Molinaroli has been elected to the Board effective October 1, 2013 and elected Chairman of the Board effective January 1, 2014.

Also as a result of the announced changes, Stephen A. Roell, the Company's current Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President, will cease serving as Chief Executive Officer and President on September 30, 2013, and will retire from the Company effective December 31, 2013. Further, Mr. Roell will retire as Chairman of the Board and as a director effective December 31, 2013.

Mr. Molinaroli, age 53, was elected Vice Chairman of the Company in January 2013 and a Corporate Vice President in May 2004. Previously, Mr. Molinaroli served as President of the Company's Power Solutions business from January 2007 to January 2013. Mr. Molinaroli also served as Vice President and General Manager for North America Systems & the Middle East for the Company's Building Efficiency business and has held increasing levels of responsibility for controls systems and services sales and operations. Mr. Molinaroli joined the Company in 1983.

Each of Mr. Roell and Mr. Molinaroli are parties to the Company's form of executive employment agreement, which the Company filed as an exhibit to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2010, and the Company's form of indemnity agreement, which the Company filed as an exhibit to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2007.

There are no transactions in which Mr. Molinaroli has an interest requiring disclosure on the part of the Company under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Board does not expect that Mr. Molinaroli will be named to any Board committees at the time that he becomes a director on October 1, 2013.

The Board also took action at its July 24, 2013 meeting to increase the size of the Board from 10 to 11 members, effective October 1, 2013; Mr. Molinaroli will fill the vacancy created by the increase in the number of directors. This action did not require an amendment to the Company's By-Laws because the By-Laws provide for a range in the size of the Board of not less than 9 nor more than 13 members, with the Board having the authority to determine the size of the Board within this range by resolution.
