LAKE FOREST, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 14, 2019--Tenneco (NYSE: TEN) reported a fourth quarter net loss of $109 million, or $(1.35) per diluted share. Fourth quarter 2017 net income

Fourth Quarter Results


Total revenue in the fourth quarter was $4.3 billion, up 79% year-over-year, driven mainly by the completion of the Federal-Mogul acquisition on October 1, 2018. Excluding the acquisition and on a constant currency basis, revenue increased 4%, outpacing light vehicle industry production*by 10 percentage points. The outperformance was driven by volume and content growth with commercial truck and off-highway as well as light vehicle customers. Including Federal-Mogul results, value-add revenue was $3.6 billion, up more than 100% compared to last year.

“Tenneco’s strong organic growth continued in the fourth quarter, outpacing industry production by ten percentage points, enabled by our diverse business profile in terms of products, geographic regions and end-markets served,” said Brian Kesseler, Tenneco co-CEO. “We closed the Federal-Mogul transaction, accelerating the transformation of the combined businesses into two purpose-built, industry leading companies, and our acquisition of Öhlins will fuel the growth of advanced suspension technology and enhance our portfolio in broader mobility markets.”
