WABCO Reports Q3 2009 Results, Delivers Profit Despite Continued Severe Slump in Industry and 42 Percent Drop in Sales Year on Year

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, Oct 28, 2009 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE: WBC), a global technology leader and tier-one supplier to the commercial vehicle industry, today reported that Q3 2009 sales totaled $382.0 million, down 42 percent from prior year and down 38 percent in local currencies due to the unprecedented continued severe slump in global demand for new commercial vehicles.

"All our employees are fully aligned and intensely contributing to support and implement our plan to secure WABCO's success. Thanks to their commitment, even in a commercial vehicle industry that has severely deteriorated for four consecutive quarters, our Q3 2009 results demonstrate WABCO's powerful ability to still achieve a positive operating result and continue to generate a strongly positive free cash flow," said Jacques Esculier, WABCO Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Over a year ago, we anticipated market declines and quickly acted to mitigate the global production slump for trucks, buses and trailers. Today, we have successfully resized our organization for a significantly reduced level of market demand without sacrificing our commitment to our strategy of technology leadership, global expansion and excellence in execution."

"In Q3 2009, we continued to increase our revenues from emerging markets, particularly from Asia, as a result of the past five years of persistent focus on WABCO's global expansion. As of this quarter, two of our five largest customers are based in Asia. In the same period a year ago, our top five customers were all in Europe," said Esculier.

WABCO reported a Q3 2009 gross profit margin of 22.7 percent versus 26.7 percent a year ago. Excluding separation and streamlining costs, performance gross profit margin was 25.7 percent versus 27.0 percent a year ago.

WABCO reported Q3 2009 Earnings Before Interest and Taxes (EBIT) of $34.3 million, down from $65.9 million of income a year ago. Performance EBIT was $16.4 million, down from $74.8 million of income a year ago.

In Q3 2009, WABCO settled certain indemnification obligations associated with the separation from the former American Standard Companies Inc., resulting in a release of $41.3 million of existing reserves. WABCO recorded $18.6 million of streamlining expenses and $4.8 million of separation and other items in Q3 2009. The positive net impact of all these items on Q3 2009 reported EBIT was $17.9 million.

"In Q3 2009, our WABCO Operating System delivered $15.8 million of materials and conversion productivity, with materials productivity representing a record 7.2 percent of total materials cost amid continued severe conditions for sourcing. We also achieved cost savings of $20.9 million in operating expenses during Q3 2009, resulting in a reduction of approximately 20 percent year on year," said Esculier.

On a U.S. GAAP basis, Q3 2009 reported a net income of $33.8 million or $0.52 per diluted share versus net income of $63.7 million or $0.97 per diluted share a year ago. Excluding separation and streamlining items, one-time and other tax items, and an adjustment to the one-time impact from the Indian joint venture transactions, Q3 2009 resulted in a performance net income of $12.5 million or $0.19 per diluted share versus performance net income of $61.3 million or $0.94 per diluted share a year ago.

WABCO generated $31.4 million in net cash from operating activities in Q3 2009 and $19.7 million of free cash flow. Excluding payments of $10.5 million associated with streamlining, free cash flow in Q3 2009 totaled $30.2 million.

"Amid deeply depressed market conditions throughout 2009, WABCO maintains profitability year-to-date on a performance basis, even after losing 52 percent of sales so far this year," said Esculier. "In the first nine months of 2009, WABCO generated cumulative free cash flow of $86.5 million, after paying $30.1 million for streamlining. This outstanding performance shows our ability to anticipate market changes, upgrade our efforts and adapt efficiently on a continuous basis."

"As of Q3 2009, we have reset the size of our company for a global market with a lot less volume and we have accomplished this realignment without compromising our strategy. This quarter marks further achievements in technology, globalization and execution," said Esculier.

Recent Highlights

On October 22, 2009, WABCO announced that it is supplying advanced driver assistance systems for the 2009 edition of DAF Trucks' XF105 model which was recently voted "Top Truck of All Time" by Truck & Driver, a leading British professional magazine.

On October 13, 2009, the company reported that it is supplying Broshuis with its new controller area network (CAN) Repeater, a breakthrough technology that enhances the performance of electronic braking systems (EBS) on extra long trailers. Broshuis is one of Europe's largest and most innovative original equipment manufacturers of trailers for exceptional transport of over-sized cargo such as construction materials and steel fabrications.

Also in October 2009, WABCO announced that it is supplying several technologies to the first hybrid bus manufactured in Spain which was also named "Bus of the Year 2009" by the national commercial vehicle industry. Developed by Castrosua, a leading original equipment manufacturer of buses based in Spain, the Tempus is a serial electric-diesel hybrid-powered urban bus, which has been successfully tested by EMT and TMB, the public transport operators located in Madrid and Barcelona respectively.

In Q3 2009, a leading manufacturer of trucks and buses in Japan awarded WABCO a major multi-year contract to supply electronic braking systems for the customer's next vehicle platform. The customer serves the Japanese market as well as Asia, Europe, and North and South America.

Also in Q3 2009, WABCO expanded its partnership with China National Heavy Truck Corporation. In a new multi-year development and supply agreement, WABCO widened the scope of its OptiDrive modular AMT system to cover additional transmission platforms such as 10- and 12-speed transmissions in a broader range of heavy duty trucks as well as buses, with deliveries starting in 2010.

During Q3 2009, Meritor WABCO, the company's joint venture in North America, significantly increased sales of OnGuard collision safety systems, strengthening WABCO's leadership position in advanced driver assistance technology. It sold over 1,000 OnGuard systems, more than triple the number sold in the previous quarter, due to orders from several large fleets that provide truck load freight services.

In September 2009, WABCO reported its demonstration of breakthrough technology in load monitoring for trailers at ITS 2009 in Stockholm, one of the industry's most important international events for showcasing innovations in safe transport systems. WABCO's new controller area network (CAN) Router technology for real-time remote load monitoring in heavy trucks and trailers is part of the Truck Cargo Weight Control project together with Volvo, the Swedish Road Authority and the Swedish Fleet Organization.

On September 3, 2009, WABCO-TVS, the company's Indian subsidiary, was honored with the 2009 Gold Award for Manufacturing Excellence from the Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA), a leading industry group.

WABCO-TVS previously won a Deming Prize for total quality management; a Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Excellence Award from the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance; and a Japan Quality Medal, the first awarded to a company in India.

On September 2, 2009, WABCO announced its first market expansion initiative since taking control in June 2009 of WABCO-TVS, its award-winning Indian subsidiary. WABCO plans to leverage engineering capabilities, technologies and products from India into South America, enabling opportunities for WABCO to boost sales in South America, which is less affected by the global downturn and rebounding faster. WABCO is moving quickly to leverage WABCO-TVS's unique engineering and product development platform, which has a 40-year track record and capability of understanding the specific needs of commercial vehicles in emerging markets.

In August 2009, the company announced an agreement with Ashok Leyland, one of India's largest manufacturers of commercial vehicles, for the development of transmission automation technology and the long term supply of automated manual transmission (AMT) systems from 2010 through 2015. Starting in 2010, WABCO will supply Ashok Leyland with its new OptiDrive modular AMT system, a breakthrough in transmission automation technology. Ashok Leyland is the first manufacturer of commercial vehicles in India to adopt WABCO's highly advanced OptiDrive system in volume production.

Full Year 2009 Operating Framework

WABCO improves its previously disclosed operating framework for 2009 to include an estimated decline in 2009 sales of 37 to 39 percent in local currencies, resulting in a full year reported operating margin of negative 1.9 percent or higher, including streamlining and separation items, and an operating margin of 2.0 percent or higher on a performance basis. WABCO also expects that the company will generate more than $90 million in free cash flow for 2009, which excludes approximately $50 million of streamlining and separation items.

"WABCO continues to anticipate and mitigate adverse market conditions through orderly cost reduction measures, systematic productivity initiatives and further applications of lean manufacturing, among other accomplishments that our people have honed over the years in our globally connected culture of operational excellence," said Esculier. "We continue to perform on our three strategic pillars of technology leadership, global expansion and excellence in execution. As we resize our company, we are in a strong position to take full advantage of any upturn in the market."

Forward-Looking Statements

Comments in this document contain certain forward-looking statements, which are based on management's good faith expectations and beliefs concerning future developments. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations as a result of many factors. These factors include, but are not limited to, the risks and uncertainties described in the "Risk Factors" section and the "Forward Looking Statements" section of WABCO's Form 10-K, as well as in the "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations -- Information Concerning Forward Looking Statements" section of WABCO's Form 10-Q Quarterly Reports.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To facilitate the understanding of Q3 2009 results, several tables follow this news release. EBIT and sales excluding the effects of foreign exchange are non-GAAP financial measures. Additionally, operating income, operating income margin, EBIT, net income and net income per diluted share on a "performance basis" are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude separation and streamlining items, one-time impact from the Indian joint venture transactions, and discrete and other one-time tax items, as applicable. Lastly, free cash flow presents our net cash provided by operating activities less net cash used for purchases of property, plant, equipment, and computer software. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, GAAP measures. Management believes that presenting these non-GAAP measures is useful to shareholders because it enhances their understanding of how management assesses the operating performance of the company's business. Certain non-GAAP measures may be used, in part, to determine incentive compensation for current employees.
