“In Q4 2016, we continued to increase market penetration in key regions, such as China, the world’s largest market for commercial vehicles, where in particular we augmented adoption of WABCO anti-lock braking systems on light- and medium-duty trucks,” said Jacques Esculier, WABCO Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“Altogether, 2016 marked WABCO’s tenth consecutive year of solid outperformance of the commercial vehicle industry relative to global truck and bus production,” said Esculier. “We continued to increase levels of WABCO content per vehicle through market share gains and additional uptake of our industry-leading safety and efficiency technologies globally.”

In 2016, WABCO’s Operating System, the company’s globally standardized management environment, delivered $83.0 million of materials and conversion productivity. It generated gross materials productivity of 5.5 percent, another robust result.

At the same time, WABCO delivered over $15 million cost savings in operating expenses for full year 2016.

“In 2016, we sustained further cost efficiency across WABCO’s global value chain, and in particular in our factories we delivered conversion productivity of 7.0 percent, an annual record,” said Esculier. “With robust improvement in our operating margin, we once again demonstrated WABCO’s commitment to deliver further profitability derived from growth.”

In 2016, WABCO continued to strongly convert income into cash, resulting in net cash from operating activities of $405.4 million.

As previously disclosed, WABCO is further authorized to repurchase up to $600 million of additional shares through December 31, 2018.

Recent WABCO Highlights

Recently, WABCO announced that it has extended its long-term agreement with KAMAZ to supply a range of advanced technologies, including WABCO’s breakthrough mBSP™ modular braking system platform. KAMAZ is Russia’s largest manufacturer of heavy-duty trucks. This major agreement will support KAMAZ’s series production in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, resulting in new incremental business for WABCO, including WABCO’s support as sole supplier for KAMAZ’s newest heavy-duty vehicle platform. This extended agreement marks further expansion of WABCO’s partnership with KAMAZ for supply of anti-lock braking and electronic braking systems, automatic traction control, electronic stability control, and OptiRide™ electronically controlled air suspension.

WABCO China recently entered into a new long-term agreement with Shaanxi Fast Gear Company to continue to develop and supply automated manual transmission (AMT) technology. Fast Gear is the world’s largest manufacturer of heavy-duty transmissions. Through its differentiated “design-for-China” customer focus, WABCO continues to successfully expand its strategic partnership with Fast Gear. This major contract will result in incremental revenues and will further strengthen WABCO’s market-leading position in AMT systems in China. WABCO’s AMT technology improves fuel savings up to 5% through optimized gear shifting while reducing the overheads associated with driver training. WABCO is the global market leader with nearly 3.5 million AMT systems sold.

In Q4 2016, WABCO delivered a record quarterly number of its Transics TX-SKY™ onboard computer systems for fleets. Additionally, in 2016, WABCO delivered a record annual number of its Transics TX-TRAILERGUARD™ fleet management systems (FMS). As a full systems supplier, WABCO can uniquely connect trucks, trailers, cargo, drivers, business partners and fleet operators in real time. With TX-SKY and TX-TRAILERGUARD, all of this information is integrated – 24/7 – onto the fleet manager’s displays via TX-CONNECT™ web-based back-office technology. This big data translates into actionable management insights, resulting in better fleet performance, improved asset utilization and more connected vehicles. In 2016, WABCO continued successfully to leverage one of the commercial vehicle industry’s most sophisticated FMS platforms. It secures rich data from onboard mission-critical systems while applying innovative control functions that further increase each fleet’s efficiency.

Recently, WABCO announced that it will supply a major German passenger car maker with its breakthrough electric Twin Compressor air suspension technology for the customer’s premium electric sport utility vehicles. WABCO is expected to equip all of these vehicles in global series production starting in late 2018. This new long-term agreement further strengthens WABCO’s leadership position as the passenger car industry’s sole supplier of electronically controlled air supply systems for electric-powered passenger vehicles. Separately, WABCO also extended and expanded its supply of vacuum pumps through agreements with two leading manufacturers involving passenger cars, sport utility vehicles and pick-up trucks. WABCO will supply one global automaker from China for delivery in the United States. WABCO expects to supply another major car manufacturer from India to support series production in India and elsewhere in Asia.

In January 2017, WABCO announced that the company has been ranked in the “Top 3” in its sector for “Best CEO” in the 2017 All-America Executive Team survey conducted by Institutional Investor magazine. It marks the fifth year in a row that WABCO has achieved this high recognition, further differentiating WABCO in its sector across all market capitalizations. In addition, WABCO’s Jacques Esculier was voted “Best CEO” in the 2017 All-America Executive Team Mid-Cap survey. Mid-Cap, meaning mid-capitalization, is a new and separate ranking by Institutional Investor magazine. Mr. Esculier ranked Number 1 across companies surveyed in its sector with a market capitalization up to $10 billion.

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains certain “forward-looking statements” as defined by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that are based on management’s good faith expectations and beliefs concerning future developments. Statements preceded by, followed by or that otherwise include the words “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “strategies,” “prospects,” “intends,” “projects,” “estimates,” “plans,” “may increase,” “may fluctuate,” and similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “should,” “would,” “may” and “could” are generally forward looking in nature and not historical facts. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations as a result of many factors. These factors include, but are not limited to, the actual level of commercial vehicle production in our end markets, adverse developments in the business of our key customers, pricing changes to our supplies or products, our ability to successfully integrate any acquired businesses or our acquired businesses not performing as planned, our ability to mitigate any tax risks, including, but not limited to those risks associated with changes in legislation, tax audits and the loss of the benefits associated with our tax rulings and incentives in certain jurisdictions, and the other risks and uncertainties described in the “Risk Factors” section and the “Information Concerning Forward Looking Statements” section of WABCO’s Form 10-K, as well as in the “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Information Concerning Forward Looking Statements” section of WABCO’s Form 10-Q Quarterly Reports. WABCO does not undertake any obligation to update such forward-looking statements. All market and industry data are based on company estimates.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To facilitate the understanding of Q4 and Full Year 2016 results, several tables follow this news release.  Sales, gross profit, operating expenses, and operating income, which exclude the effects of foreign exchange, as well as EBIT, are non-GAAP financial measures. Additionally, gross profit, operating expenses, operating income, operating margin, EBIT, tax rate, pre-tax income, net income attributable to the company, and net income attributable to the company per diluted share on a “performance basis” are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude items for separation, streamlining and acquisition, discrete and one-time tax items, and a non-cash out-of-period correction to our non-controlling interest, and other items that may mask the underlying operating results of the company, as applicable. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, GAAP measures. These measures may not be comparable to similar measures of other companies as not all companies calculate these measures in the same manner. Management believes that presenting these non-GAAP measures is useful to shareholders because it enhances their understanding of how management assesses the operating performance of the company’s business. Certain non-GAAP measures may be used, in part, to determine incentive compensation for current employees.
