* Sees Q1 non-cash charge of $0.12/shr
* Says to also incur cash charges from 2013
March 31 (Reuters) - Ingersoll-Rand Plc IR.N, a maker of air compressors and cooling systems, expects to record a non-cash charge of $41 million, or 12 cents a share, related to the recently passed U.S. healthcare reform.
The company said it will take a cash impact beginning in 2013 in the form of higher income taxes paid. However, the non-cash charge will be incurred in the first quarter of 2010.
The charge reflects the expected increase in income taxes that will occur as a result of the new legislation, it said.
Ingersoll-Rand said its earnings outlook provided in February did not include the impact of this charge.
It had forecast first-quarter profit of 10 cents to 15 cents a share.
Shares of the company closed at $34.87 Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange. (Reporting by A.Ananthalakshmi in Bangalore; Editing by Gopakumar Warrier)
