  • Record-high first quarter revenue, outpacing industry production
  • Record-high EBIT, net income and EPS
  • Improved cash flow from operations

LAKE FOREST, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 1, 2017--Tenneco Inc. (NYSE: TEN) reported record first quarter net income of $63 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, compared with $57 million, or 99-cents per diluted share in first quarter 2016. Adjusted net income increased 24% to a first quarter record high of $83 million, compared with $67 million last year. First quarter adjusted earnings per share also rose to a new record high of $1.53 per diluted share, a 31% improvement year-over-year.

Revenue

Total revenue in the first quarter was $2.292 billion, up 7% year-over-year, driven by higher revenue in both the Clean Air and Ride Performance product lines.

On a constant currency basis, total first quarter revenue increased 9% to $2.329 billion, outpacing industry production growth of 6%.* Record revenue in the quarter reflects an 11% increase in light vehicle revenue on the strength of the company’s global platform position. Commercial truck revenue increased 15%, outpacing industry growth of 5%. Off-highway revenue was about even with last year on continuing weak industry production. Global aftermarket revenue was also about even with a year ago.

In constant currency, value-add revenue increased 9% versus last year, and included 10% growth in Clean Air revenues, and 7% higher Ride Performance revenue.

“We started the year strong by delivering another record quarter with our highest-ever first quarter revenue, EBIT, net income and earnings per share,” said Gregg Sherrill, chairman and CEO Tenneco. “The strong balance across our business in terms of regions, end-markets, customers and products helped us deliver another quarter of profitable growth as we executed well on growth plans for each product line.”
