BRUSSELS, Belgium, February 4, 2010 – WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE: WBC), a global technology leader and tier-one supplier to the commercial vehicle industry, today reported Q4 2009 sales of $460 million, up 1 percent from prior year and down 9 percent in local currencies, bringing full year 2009 sales to $1.49 billion, down 42 percent from prior year and down 39 percent in local currencies, reflecting the unprecedented severe slump in global demand for new commercial vehicles.

“2009 was an unprecedented year for the global commercial vehicle industry, which abruptly and deeply dropped in size while going through a shakeup of market demand among regions of the world and significantly increasing the importance of Asia. Indeed, in the last 12 months, commercial vehicle production decreased by more than 60 percent in Europe and almost 40 percent in North America while production grew by 18 percent in China. In 2009, more than 60 percent of the world’s truck and bus production took place in China and India,” said Jacques Esculier, WABCO Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “During the past five years, in anticipation of the growing importance of emerging markets, WABCO has been driving major initiatives to globalize the company’s culture, capabilities and customer reach. In 2009, the future came faster than we thought but we were well prepared to morph with the market.”

“Strongly rooted in China and India, WABCO has achieved a leading position in the marketplace through increasingly close connectivity to customers. We are further strengthened in Asia by an outstanding network of suppliers, manufacturing sites and engineering hubs. We produce some of our most advanced technologies right in Asia to serve local markets,” said Esculier. “In Q4 2009, Asia accounted for 22 percent of sales, compared with 10 percent the prior year.”
