Tenneco Reports Record Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2010 Financial Results

  • Record-high 4Q revenue of $1.577 billion
  • Record-high EBIT for 4Q and full-year 2010
  • Lowest-ever debt net of cash at $990 million
  • Global OE revenues of $5.9 billion projected in 2011 and $7.1 billion in 2012, reflecting growth in light and commercial vehicle volumes and content

LAKE FOREST, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--February 3, 2011--Tenneco Inc. (NYSE:TEN) reported a fourth quarter net loss of $18 million, or 31-cents per diluted share. The net loss was primarily due to re-financing costs and tax charges in the quarter. Adjusted for the items below, net income increased to $19 million, or 31-cents per diluted share, on a higher share count. Fourth quarter 2009 net income was $17 million, or 32-cents per diluted share, and adjusted net income was $7 million, or 13-cents per diluted share. The tables in the press release reconcile GAAP results to non-GAAP results.

EBIT (earnings before interest, taxes and noncontrolling interests) increased to $62 million from $53 million in fourth quarter 2009. Adjusted for the items below, EBIT was $68 million, up 19% over $57 million a year ago. A 20% increase in global OE revenue, driven by higher production volumes, and a 15% increase in global aftermarket sales drove the EBIT improvement. Partially offsetting the revenue benefit was $10 million in fourth quarter accruals, representing 10-cents per diluted share, for deferred and long-term compensation indexed to the company’s stock price, which rose 42% in the quarter.

“We delivered strong fourth quarter and full-year results including double-digit increases in OE and aftermarket revenue and record-high earnings. Our earnings and cash performance drove our net debt to below $1 billion for the first time in our history,” said Gregg Sherrill, chairman and CEO, Tenneco. “Going forward, our goal is to leverage our significant top-line growth by staying focused on our operations including executing on new business launches, while continuing to generate cash.”
