Tenneco Reports Record Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2011 Financial Results
- Highest-ever quarterly and annual revenues of $1.8 billion for Q4, and $7.2 billion for full-year 2011
- Record high EBIT, net income and EPS for Q4 and full-year
- OE revenue projected to increase 12% in 2012 and 18% in 2013
LAKE FOREST, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--February 2, 2012--Tenneco Inc (NYSE: TEN) reported record net income of $30 million, or 49-cents per diluted share, compared with a loss of $18 million, or 31-cents per diluted share, in the fourth quarter 2010. On an adjusted basis, net income also increased to $32 million, or 53-cents per diluted share, versus $19 million, or 31-cents per diluted share, a year ago. The tables in the press release reconcile GAAP results to non-GAAP results.
“The double-digit increases in revenues and earnings demonstrate the balance in our growth strategy and set new performance benchmarks for Tenneco,” stated Gregg Sherrill, chairman and CEO. “Our strong position on light vehicle platforms globally, higher aftermarket sales, and technology-driven growth in the commercial vehicle segment, drove the significant revenue gain and delivered earnings growth, EBIT margin improvement, and a stronger financial position.”
Total revenue in the quarter was $1.784 billion, up 13% from 2010, representing the company’s highest-ever fourth quarter revenue. Revenue excluding substrate sales and currency was $1.374 billion, a 13% year-over-year increase versus $1.215 billion. Higher OE light vehicle production volumes, incremental revenue from commercial vehicle launches and higher global aftermarket sales all contributed to strong revenue growth in the quarter. Revenue includes a $10 million unfavorable currency impact.
EBIT and EBIT Margin
EBIT (earnings before interest, taxes, and non-controlling interests) increased to $88 million from $62 million in fourth quarter 2010. Adjusted EBIT improved to $89 million, up 31% versus $68 million a year ago. EBIT was driven by stronger OE light vehicle production volumes, the launch and ramp up of new commercial vehicle programs and reduced SG&A costs (related to lower stock-indexed compensation). Partially offsetting these improvements were $9 million in higher year-over-year operational costs in the North American ride control business and $4 million in planned costs associated with expanding manufacturing capabilities and supporting new programs in China. Currency had a $2 million unfavorable impact on EBIT in the fourth quarter.
EBIT as a percent of revenue and EBIT as a percent of value-add revenue (revenue excluding substrate sales) improved year-over-year as noted below.
