Tenneco Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2013 Results

  • Record-high 4Q and full year revenue
  • Record-high 4Q EBIT and net income
  • 4Q cash flow from operations of $412 million

LAKE FOREST, Ill.--()--Tenneco Inc. (NYSE: TEN) reported fourth quarter net income of $54 million, or 88-cents per diluted share, compared with $33 million, or 54-cents per diluted share, in fourth quarter 2012. On an adjusted basis, net income rose to $59 million, or 96-cents per diluted share, versus $40 million, or 66-cents per diluted share a year ago.

Tenneco’s results in the fourth quarter and for full-year 2013 reflect the company’s strong balance across end-markets, geographic regions, customers and platforms as the company continues to build on its strong position in its OE markets (light vehicle, commercial truck, off-highway and other markets); complemented by a market-leading global aftermarket business. Tenneco grew revenues across all segments in the fourth quarter and in 2013. Tenneco’s total light vehicle revenue outpaced global industry production with a 13% increase in the fourth quarter and an 8% rise for the full year. Commercial truck and off-highway revenue was up 51% in the fourth quarter and 18% for the full year. Global aftermarket revenue also increased, up 5% in the quarter and 1% in 2013.

Revenue

Total revenue in the fourth quarter increased to $2.031 billion. Revenue excluding substrate sales was $1.569 billion, up 15%, driven by year-over-year increases in Clean Air and Ride Performance.

For the full year, Tenneco reported its highest-ever revenue of $7.964 billion, up 8% from a year ago. Excluding substrate sales, revenue increased 7% to $6.129 billion.

“We delivered our highest-ever fourth quarter and full year revenue by capitalizing on stronger global light vehicle volumes, launching new light vehicle platforms and growing our commercial truck and off-highway business,” said Gregg Sherrill, chairman and CEO, Tenneco. “Our solid operational performance drove greater profitability for the year with improvements in both the Clean Air and Ride Performance businesses.”

Fourth Quarter EBIT

Fourth quarter EBIT (earnings before interest, taxes and noncontrolling interests) was $118 million, up 40% from $84 million last year. Adjusted EBIT rose 35% to $127 million.

Clean Air adjusted EBIT increased 17% year-over-year on higher volumes and the ramp-up on new platforms in North America and China. Ride Performance adjusted EBIT increased 70%, largely due to the ramp-up on new platforms in North America, higher light vehicle production volumes in China, higher global aftermarket sales and operational cost improvements.

Cash

During the year, Tenneco completed a stock buyback program, repurchasing 550,000 shares of its outstanding common stock for $27 million to offset dilution from shares issued to employees in 2013. Also during the year, the company acquired the remaining 20% of its Dalian, China joint venture for $69 million and $9 million paid in lieu of dividends owed to the partner.

Tenneco’s earnings improvement and strong cash generation resulted in a new all-time low net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 1.2x, an improvement from 1.5x at the end of 2012.

OUTLOOK AND FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

FIRST QUARTER 2014

In the first quarter of 2014, IHS Automotive projects that industry light vehicle production in the regions where Tenneco operates will increase 6% year-over-year. North America is expected to be up 6%, Europe up 4% and China up 12%. Light vehicle production in India and South America is expected to be down 9% and 1% respectively.

Revenue from commercial truck and off-highway customers in the first quarter is expected to increase about 20% year-over-year as Tenneco launches additional content for off-highway equipment to meet the next round of regulatory changes in North America and Europe, and as the pace of commercial truck customer orders in China continues to gradually increase.

The company expects its global aftermarket revenue in the first quarter to remain at the strong levels achieved in the first quarter of last year.

FULL YEAR 2014

In 2014, Tenneco expects its total original equipment (OE) revenue will increase between 7% and 11% including both light vehicle, and commercial truck and off-highway revenue growth.

The company’s 2014 OE light vehicle revenue is expected to grow at a slightly higher rate than overall global industry production, which according to IHS Automotive is forecasted to increase 5% in the regions where Tenneco operates. This includes IHS estimates of year-over-year increases in North America (4%), Europe (1%), China (10%), South America (2%) and India (6%). Tenneco’s light vehicle OE revenue growth will be driven by leveraging higher industry production volumes with a strong position on top-selling platforms and with customers globally; light vehicle program launches including new technology content; and the ramp-up of volumes on platforms launched in 2013.

Tenneco anticipates its 2014 commercial truck and off-highway revenue will increase in the range of 20% to 30% despite the expectation that overall, the company’s commercial truck and off-highway markets will see relatively flat volumes in 2014. Tenneco’s revenue growth will be driven primarily by programs with new incremental content to meet U.S. Tier 4 final and Europe Stage 4 off-road regulations that begin phasing in during 2014. Also driving revenue growth will be the launch of new programs globally, and gradually increasing revenues in China as more cities enforce already enacted emissions regulations and low sulfur diesel fuel becomes more widely available.

The company expects its global aftermarket business to continue to be a stable contributor to Tenneco’s revenue performance.

Looking forward, Tenneco expects significant revenue growth over the next five years, largely driven by increasingly stringent global emissions regulations for light vehicles and commercial markets. The company’s OE light vehicle revenue is expected to outpace global industry light vehicle production as Tenneco leverages its strong position on platforms, across geographic regions and with leading customers worldwide. In addition, Tenneco anticipates its strong book of business with commercial truck and off-highway manufacturers will support further revenue growth, driven by new business, incremental content and stronger volumes as various commercial markets recover. Over this timeframe, Tenneco expects an average annual OE revenue growth rate of about 10%.

“Tenneco’s growth opportunities are outstanding. Our technology, engineering and manufacturing capabilities, and global footprint give us a leading position with light and commercial vehicle customers and we are building on a robust book of business with new programs and additional content,” said Sherrill. “Geographically, our growth is well balanced as we continue to win and launch new business in both emerging and mature markets.”

In 2014, Tenneco expects:
Capital expenditures between $275 million and $300 million
Annual interest expense about $80 million
Cash taxes between $190 million and $210 million
Tax rate between 36% and 38%

ANNUAL MEETING

The Tenneco Board of Directors has scheduled the corporation’s annual meeting of shareholders for Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. CT. The meeting will be held at the corporate headquarters, 500 North Field Drive, Lake Forest, Illinois. The record date for shareholders eligible to vote at the meeting is March 17, 2014.

Tenneco is an $8 billion global manufacturing company with headquarters in Lake Forest, Illinois and approximately 26,000 employees worldwide. Tenneco is one of the world’s largest designers, manufacturers and marketers of clean air and ride performance products and systems for automotive and commercial vehicle original equipment markets and the aftermarket. Tenneco’s principal brand names are Monroe®, Walker®, XNOx™ and Clevite®Elastomer.

Revenue estimates in this release are based on OE manufacturers’ programs that have been formally awarded to the company; programs where Tenneco is highly confident that it will be awarded business based on informal customer indications consistent with past practices; Tenneco’s status as supplier for the existing program and its relationship with the customer; and the actual original equipment revenues achieved by the company for each of the last several years compared to the amount of those revenues that the company estimated it would generate at the beginning of each year. These revenue estimates are also based on anticipated vehicle production levels and pricing, including precious metals pricing and the impact of material cost changes. Currency is assumed to be constant at $1.33 per Euro throughout the entire period. For certain additional assumptions upon which these estimates are based, see the slides accompanying the January 30, 2014 webcast, which will be available on the financial section of the Tenneco website at www.tenneco.com.

(1) Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

(2) EBITDA including noncontrolling interests represents income before interest expense, income taxes, noncontrolling interests and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA including noncontrolling interests is not a calculation based upon generally accepted accounting principles. The amounts included in the EBITDA including noncontrolling interests calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in the historical statements of income data. In addition, EBITDA including noncontrolling interests should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) attributable to Tenneco Inc. or operating income as an indicator of the company's operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flows as a measure of liquidity. Tenneco has presented EBITDA including noncontrolling interests because it regularly reviews EBITDA including noncontrolling interests as a measure of the company's performance. In addition, Tenneco believes its investors utilize and analyze our EBITDA including noncontrolling interests for similar purposes. Tenneco also believes EBITDA including noncontrolling interests assists investors in comparing a company's performance on a consistent basis without regard to depreciation and amortization, which can vary significantly depending upon many factors. However, the EBITDA including noncontrolling interests measure presented may not always be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in the components of the calculation.

(1) Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

(2) Tenneco presents the above reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP earnings measures primarily to reflect the results in a manner that allows a better understanding of the results of operational activities separate from the financial impact of decisions made for the long-term benefit of the company and other items impacting comparability between the periods. Adjustments similar to the ones reflected above have been recorded in earlier periods, and similar types of adjustments can reasonably be expected to be recorded in future periods. Using only the non-GAAP earnings measures to analyze earnings would have material limitations because its calculation is based on the subjective determinations of management regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find material. Management compensates for these limitations by utilizing both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings measures reflected above to understand and analyze the results of the business. The company believes investors find the non-GAAP information helpful in understanding the ongoing performance of operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the company's financial results in any particular period.

Additionally, substrate sales include precious metals pricing, which may be volatile. Substrate sales occur when, at the direction of its OE customers, Tenneco purchases catalytic converters or components thereof from suppliers, uses them in its manufacturing processes and sells them as part of the completed system. While Tenneco original equipment customers assume the risk of this volatility, it impacts reported revenue. Excluding substrate sales removes this impact.

EBITDA including noncontrolling interests is not a calculation based upon generally accepted accounting principles. The amounts included in the EBITDA including noncontrolling interests calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in the historical statements of income data. In addition, EBITDA including noncontrolling interests should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) attributable to Tenneco Inc. or operating income as an indicator of the company's operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flows as a measure of liquidity. Tenneco has presented EBITDA including noncontrolling interests because it regularly reviews EBITDA including noncontrolling interests as a measure of the company's performance. In addition, Tenneco believes its investors utilize and analyze our EBITDA including noncontrolling interests for similar purposes. Tenneco also believes EBITDA including noncontrolling interests assists investors in comparing a company's performance on a consistent basis without regard to depreciation and amortization, which can vary significantly depending upon many factors. However, the EBITDA including noncontrolling interests measure presented may not always be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in the components of the calculation.

(3) Adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests is presented in order to reflect the results in a manner that allows a better understanding of operational activities separate from the financial impact of decisions made for the long term benefit of the company and other items impacting comparability between the periods. Similar adjustments to EBITDA including noncontrolling interests have been recorded in earlier periods, and similar types of adjustments can reasonably be expected to be recorded in future periods. The company believes investors find the non-GAAP information helpful in understanding the ongoing performance of operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the company's financial results in any particular period.

(4) Tenneco presents the above reconciliation of the ratio of debt net of cash to LTM adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests to show trends that investors may find useful in understanding the company's ability to service its debt. For purposes of this calculation, LTM adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests is used as an indicator of the company's performance and debt net of cash is presented as an indicator of our credit position and progress toward reducing our financial leverage. This reconciliation is provided as supplemental information and not intended to replace the company's existing covenant ratios or any other financial measures that investors may find useful in describing the company's financial position. See notes (1), (2) and (3) for a description of the limitations of using debt net of cash, EBITDA including noncontrolling interests and adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests.

(2) Tenneco presents the above reconciliation of revenues in order to reflect EBIT as a percent of both total revenues and value-add revenues. Substrate sales include precious metals pricing, which may be volatile. Substrate sales occur when, at the direction of its OE customers, Tenneco purchases catalytic converters or components thereof from suppliers, uses them in its manufacturing processes and sells them as part of the completed system. While Tenneco original equipment customers assume the risk of this volatility, it impacts reported revenue. Excluding substrate sales removes this impact. Further, presenting EBIT as a percent of value-add revenue assists investors in evaluating our company's operational performance without the impact of such substrate sales.
