WABCO Holdings Inc., (www.wabco-auto.com) a global technology leader and tier-one supplier to the commercial vehicle industry, today reported Q3 2012 sales of $588 million, down 7.2 percent in local currencies from a year ago and down 16.7 percent in U.S. dollars, reflecting sudden downturn in key markets.

"We had previously stated that markets across all regions would be uncertain and unstable throughout 2012 but in Q3 2012 market conditions further deteriorated beyond what we expected as global truck and bus production declined 12 percent year on year and 8 percent versus the previous quarter," said Jacques Esculier, WABCO Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"Western Europe, our largest market, accelerated its downturn as new truck and bus builds declined 11 percent versus a year ago and 16 percent versus Q2 2012. In addition, North America reversed its growth trend in Q3 2012 as the market contracted almost 2 percent year on year and 16 percent versus the previous quarter," said Esculier. "Furthermore, truck and bus production in China dropped 17 percent year on year and 11 percent versus the previous quarter."

"Nonetheless, WABCO delivered solid performance operating margin at 13.0 percent in Q3 2012 as we acted quickly to mitigate this sudden downturn, further demonstrating WABCO''s strong execution of business fundamentals across our global organization," said Esculier.

"WABCO''s business from emerging markets continued to benefit from an increased adoption of our technologies, resulting in higher value of WABCO content per vehicle," said Esculier. "Also in Q3 2012, our aftermarket business delivered its best quarter ever."

WABCO reported Q3 2012 performance operating income of $76.4 million versus $94.5 million a year ago, and operating income was $73.2 million on a U.S. GAAP basis versus $92.4 million a year ago.

WABCO reported Q3 2012 performance operating margin of 13.0 percent, down from 13.4 percent a year ago, and operating margin was 12.4 percent on a U.S. GAAP basis, down from 13.1 percent a year ago.

WABCO reported Q3 2012 performance net income attributable to the company of $66.3 million or $1.02 per diluted share versus $81.9 million or $1.19 per diluted share a year ago, and Q3 2012 U.S. GAAP net income attributable to the company of $77.5 million or $1.19 per diluted share versus $83.8 million or $1.22 per diluted share a year ago. Q3 2012 U.S. GAAP results benefitted from several discrete tax items.

WABCO generated $112.6 million in net cash from operating activities in Q3 2012, resulting in free cash flow of $85.9 million. Excluding payments of $4.3 million for streamlining and separation activities, free cash flow was $90.2 million, which is a conversion rate of 136 percent of performance net income attributable to the company, bringing year-to-date 2012 conversion rate to 102 percent.

"WABCO''s Q3 2012 results demonstrate how the company consistently and efficiently flexes with changes in market demand to continue to deliver outstanding value for our shareowners," said Esculier. "WABCO''s fundamentals remain firmly in place as we continue to mitigate the impact of sales declines on our margins."

"WABCO''s Operating System, one of our industry''s most advanced management environments, continued to enable fast and flexible responses to significant market changes. It generated $17.1 million of materials and conversion productivity in Q3 2012, another solid result. Gross materials productivity represented 5.3 percent of total materials cost but, as expected, the impact of commodity inflation reduced net materials productivity to 4.6 percent," said Esculier. "Q3 2012 was another robust quarter throughout our organization for conversion productivity, which we delivered at 6.1 percent, while at the same time continuously flexing capacity to address changes in market demand."

As previously announced, WABCO''s board of directors authorized the company on October 26, 2012 to enter into an additional share repurchase program. This board authorization allows for the repurchase of a further $400 million of common shares at the discretion of management for a period until December 31, 2014. 

Since the initiation of WABCO''s ongoing share buyback program of $400 million commenced in June 2011, the company has repurchased 6,409,012 million shares for $340.2 million in open market transactions as of October 26, 2012.

Together with the new program, as of October 26, 2012, WABCO is authorized to repurchase up to $459.8 million of shares through December 31, 2014.

Recent Highlights

WABCO announced in Q3 2012 that it has acquired Ephicas, a pioneering company in the field of aerodynamic solutions for commercial vehicles. WABCO will develop a range of aerodynamic products - branded OptiFlow™ - designed to increase vehicle efficiency and reduce fuel consumption for trucks, trailers and buses. WABCO''s first product introduction is an innovative aerodynamic SideWing for trailers. Already installed within 17 major European fleets, SideWing delivers long-haul fuel savings up to 5 percent. Independent tests show these results are up to 3 times greater than those from comparable competitive products.

In Q3 2012, WABCO reported that it has entered into a new agreement with GAZ Group, Russia''s leading manufacturer of commercial vehicles. WABCO is sole supplier of anti-lock braking systems (ABS) for heavy-duty trucks, and the company will supply ABS for series production of Ural trucks and GAZ Group''s whole line of buses. WABCO will also supply its innovative integrated system for electronic tire pressure monitoring, IVTM™, for series production of low-floor LIAZ buses for Moscow''s public bus fleet. GAZ Group has been a customer of WABCO since 2005.

The Meritor WABCO joint venture in North America reported in Q3 2012 that WABCO''s anti-lock braking system (ABS) is now standard equipment on all Navistar''s International® ProStar®+ and LoneStar® class 8 trucks. These vehicles from Navistar Inc. will add to the more than 7 million ABS systems already produced by WABCO for the North American market.

Also in Q3 2012, WABCO presented its breakthrough hydraulic anti-lock braking systems (ABS). This technology is the industry''s first and unique range of hydraulic ABS that integrates electronic stability control (ESC) for trucks and buses worldwide. As the first supplier to bring such technology to market, WABCO helps original equipment manufacturers to respond to government regulations that increasingly require ESC on different classes of commercial vehicles. From 2013 onward, national authorities will be implementing ESC legislation in Europe, Asia, and North and South America.

WABCO introduced OnLane™ technology, a lane departure warning system (LDWS) for trucks and buses, in Q3 2012. OnLane marks WABCO''s next step in advanced driver assistance systems. OnLane increases vehicle safety by providing the driver with visual and acoustic warnings or an optional seat-vibration warning, during unintentional lane departure, which is one of the most common causes of accidents involving commercial vehicles. OnLane is fully compliant with the European Union''s regulation that requires LDWS on new trucks and buses as of November 2013.

WABCO INDIA inaugurated its second world-class manufacturing facility at Mahindra World City in Chennai, India, during Q3 2012. The company now owns and operates four world-class manufacturing sites located in India. WABCO''s Plant 2 at Mahindra World City will manufacture leading technologies and innovative products to supply commercial vehicle manufacturers in Germany, Japan, Poland, and the United States, among other markets internationally. The new plant will employ 160 people, including 30 engineers.

Recently, WABCO announced that its TrailerGUARD™ telematics system with remote diagnostics technology for trailer fleet management has won the 2012 Telematics Award for logistics and transport, a top industry honor. TrailerGUARD''s new remote diagnostics function is the industry''s first of its kind for a trailer''s electronic braking and air suspension control system. It allows remote diagnosis by providing information about the trailer''s technical status in real-time.

WABCO said in Q3 2012 that it has been recognized with a top award for quality achievement throughout 2011 by PACCAR, a global technology leader in the design, manufacture and customer support of high-quality commercial trucks. PACCAR honored WABCO''s manufacturing facility in Meppel, the Netherlands, which supplies vehicle parts and components for DAF trucks in series production at quality levels that equal or exceed PACCAR''s requirements.

Full Year 2012 Guidance

Based on prevailing market conditions, WABCO revises its guidance for 2012 to now indicate estimated 2012 sales to decline between 4 and 5 percent in local currencies, which is adjusted from previous guidance for sales growth to range between negative 2 percent and positive 3 percent in local currencies.

WABCO narrows its guidance for 2012 performance operating margin to now range from 13.4 to 13.6 percent versus its previous guidance to range from 12.8 to 13.8 percent, while operating margin on a U.S. GAAP basis is adjusted to now range from 13.1 to 13.3 percent, versus its previous guidance to range from 12.5 to 13.5 percent, resulting in updated diluted earnings per share on a performance basis to range from $4.28 to $4.38 versus previous guidance to range from $4.30 to $4.80, and diluted earnings per share on a U.S. GAAP basis is updated to now range from $4.54 to $4.64 versus previous guidance to range from $4.42 to $4.92.

WABCO now expects to convert around 90 percent of its net income attributable to the company into free cash flow, excluding payments associated with streamlining and separation activities, an upgrade of the company''s previous guidance for a conversion rate between 80 and 90 percent.

"Although the market downturn in Q3 2012 was sudden, WABCO remained well prepared to protect our margins," said Esculier. "Looking ahead, we expect to achieve full year 2012 operating margin that equals or exceeds the record level that we set in 2011 on a performance basis."

"WABCO''s three-pillar strategy - technology leadership, globalization and excellence in execution - continues to power the future success of WABCO," said Esculier. "Even in these uncertain times, we remain fully confident in our ability to continue to deliver maximum value for WABCO''s shareowners."

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains certain "forward-looking statements" as defined by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that are based on management''s good faith expectations and beliefs concerning future developments. Statements preceded by, followed by or that otherwise include the words "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "strategies," "prospects," "intends," "projects," "estimates," "plans," "may increase," "may fluctuate," and similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as "will," "should," "would," "may" and "could" are generally forward looking in nature and not historical facts. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations as a result of many factors. These factors include, but are not limited to, the actual level of commercial vehicle production in our end markets, adverse developments in the business of our key customers, pricing changes to our supplies or products, and the other risks and uncertainties described in the "Risk Factors" section and the "Information Concerning 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. WABCO does not undertake any obligation to update such forward-looking statements. All market and industry data are based on company estimates.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To facilitate the understanding of Q3 2012 results, several tables follow this news release. Sales excluding the effects of foreign exchange, incremental gross and operating margin and EBIT are non-GAAP financial measures. Additionally, operating income, EBIT, net income attributable to the company and net income attributable to the company per diluted share on a "performance basis" are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude separation and streamlining items, the one-time impact from an adjustment to the UK pension plan, and discrete and other one-time tax items, as applicable. 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.
