Cummins Announces Results for 2013; Shares Expectations for Revenue and EBIT Growth in 2014 and Reaffirms Commitment to Increase Cash Returned to Shareholders

COLUMBUS, IN -- (Marketwired) -- 02/06/14 --

  • Fourth quarter revenues of $4.6 billion, EBIT of 12.3 percent of sales
  • 2013 revenues of $17.3 billion, EBIT of 12.5 percent of sales
  • Expects 2014 revenue to grow between 4 and 8 percent and EBIT to be in the range of 12.75 to 13.25 percent of sales
  • Plans to return 50 percent of Operating Cash Flow to shareholders in 2014

Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year 2013.

Fourth quarter revenue of $4.6 billion increased 7 percent from the same quarter in 2012. The increase year-over-year was driven by higher revenues in North America, China and Brazil partially offset by weaker sales in Mexico, India and Australia.

Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) were $566 million for the fourth quarter or 12.3 percent of sales. This compares to $532 million or 12.4 percent of sales a year ago, excluding restructuring costs.

Net income attributable to Cummins in the fourth quarter was $432 million ($2.32 per diluted share), compared to $404 million ($2.14 per diluted share) in the fourth quarter of 2012 excluding restructuring charges. The effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2013 was 15.7 percent and reflects one-time benefits of $0.18 per diluted share, and a lower than expected operating rate in the fourth quarter that contributed $0.20 per diluted share.

Revenues for the full year were $17.3 billion, flat with 2012. Revenues in North America increased 3 percent but were offset by international sales which declined by 4 percent. Within international markets declines in Mexico, India, Australia and Europe offset growth in China and Brazil.

EBIT for the year was $2.16 billion or 12.5 percent of sales, compared to $2.35 billion or 13.6 percent of sales in 2012, excluding special items.

Net income attributable to Cummins for the full year was $1.48 billion ($7.91 per diluted share), down from $1.68 billion ($8.83 per diluted share) in 2012, excluding special items.

"We faced weak demand in important regions and end markets in 2013," said Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO. "Revenues for the year ended flat with 2012 as strong growth in the Components business, market share gains in the North American medium-duty truck market and distributor acquisitions offset weakness in global mining markets, international power generation and the North American heavy-duty truck market. I am pleased that in this environment of weak global growth, we were able to generate record cash flow from operations that allowed us to continue to invest in the business and increase the cash returned to shareholders by 34 percent in 2013. We expect revenues to grow between 4 percent and 8 percent in 2014, with earnings projected to grow faster than revenues and we expect to return to shareholders an amount of at least 50 percent of cash from operations."

Based on the current forecast, Cummins expects full year 2014 revenues to grow between 4 percent and 8 percent, with EBIT in the range of 12.75 - 13.25 percent of sales.

2013 highlights:

  • The Company was named the 2013 Newsmaker of the Year award from Diesel Progress North American magazine for introducing a broad range of on- and off-highway engines and power systems
  • The Company increased its dividend by 25 percent in the third quarter
  • For the sixth consecutive year, Cummins has been named one of the world's most ethical companies by The Ethisphere Institute
  • The Company repurchased 3.3 million shares in 2013
  • Cummins was named one of the Top 50 companies for diversity by DiversityInc for the seventh consecutive year

(1) Includes intersegment sales and profit in inventory eliminations and unallocated corporate expenses. There were no significant unallocated corporate expenses for the year ended December 31, 2013. The year ended December 31, 2012, included a $20 million charge ($12 million after-tax) related to legal matters and a $6 million gain ($4 million after-tax) related to adjustments from our 2011 divestitures. The gain and the charge were excluded from segment results as they were not considered in our evaluation of operating results for the corresponding periods. There were no other significant unallocated corporate expenses.

(2) Depreciation and amortization as shown on a segment basis excludes the amortization of debt discount of $2 million and $6 million at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. These amounts were included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income as "Interest expense."

(3) Distribution segment EBIT for the year ended December 31, 2013, included a $7 million gain and $5 million gain on the fair value adjustment resulting from the acquisitions of a controlling interest in Cummins Northwest LLC and Cummins Rocky Mountain LLC, respectively. Distribution segment EBIT for the year ended December 31, 2012, included a $7 million gain on the fair value adjustment resulting from the acquisition of a controlling interest in Cummins Central Power.

NOTE 2. INCOME TAXES

Our income tax rates are generally less than the 35 percent U.S. income tax rate primarily because of lower taxes on foreign earnings and research tax credits. Our effective tax rate for the fourth quarter and full year of 2013 was 15.7 percent and 25.1 percent, respectively. We recorded $70 million or $0.38 per share of tax benefits in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Fourth quarter 2013 income tax provision is net of the following items:

       
One-time impacts of foreign legal entity restructuring activities   $ 16
One-time impact of reconciliation of state income tax provision to tax return     17
Lower operating rate primarily resulting from recognition of state and federal research and development credits and the recurring impacts of foreign legal entity restructuring activities     37
  Total   $ 70
       

The full year one-time tax items included these fourth quarter items, as well as a $7 million third quarter one-time net tax expense related primarily to adjustments to our income tax accounts based on our 2012 tax return filings, a first quarter one-time tax benefit of $28 million attributable to the reinstatement of the research credit back to 2012 and a one-time tax expense in the first quarter of 2013 of $17 million, which primarily relates to the write-off of a deferred tax asset deemed unrecoverable. Our effective tax rate for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012 was 16.1 percent and 23.5 percent, respectively.

A reconciliation of the U.S. federal income tax rate of 35 percent to the actual effective tax rate is as follows:

   
  Years ended December 31,
  2013   2012
U.S. federal statutory rate 35.0 %   35.0 %
State income tax, net of federal effect 0.2     1.0  
Research tax credits (3.7 )   (0.4 )
Differences in rates and taxability of foreign subsidiaries and joint ventures (6.0 )   (12.1 )
Other, net (0.4 )   -  
  Effective tax rate 25.1 %   23.5 %
             

We expect our 2014 effective tax rate to be 28.5 percent excluding any discrete items that may arise. The research tax credit expired December 31, 2013, and has not yet been renewed by Congress. If the research credit is reinstated during 2014, we would anticipate the 2014 effective tax rate to be reduced to 27 percent. The increase in the effective tax rate from 2013 to 2014 is attributable primarily to one-time tax benefits in 2013 that will not repeat in 2014 as well as changes in tax legislation in the U.S. and U.K. that will unfavorably impact our 2014 effective tax rate.

Net income and diluted earnings per share (EPS) attributable to Cummins Inc. excluding special items

We believe this is a useful measure of our operating performance for the periods presented as it illustrates our operating performance without regard to special items including tax adjustments, restructuring charges and gain on sale of businesses. This measure is not in accordance with, or an alternative for, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and may not be consistent with measures used by other companies. It should be considered supplemental data. The following table reconciles net income attributable to Cummins Inc. to net income attributable to Cummins Inc. excluding special items for the following periods:

(1) In the fourth quarter of 2012, we   recorded restructuring and other charges of $52 million ($35 million after tax). 

(2) See Note 2, "INCOME TAXES." 

The one-time tax benefits for the three months and full year ended December 31, 2012, related primarily to benefits resulting from transactions entered into and elections made with respect to our U.K. operations. The full year also included a $16 million one-time tax benefit from the third quarter, $6 million of which related to a dividend distribution of accumulated foreign income earned in prior years. These one-time tax adjustments also included a one-time tax benefit of $13 million for prior year tax return true-up adjustments and a one-time tax charge of $3 million related to the third quarter enactment of U.K. tax law changes. 

(3) In the second quarter of 2012, we recognized a $6 million gain ($4 million after-tax) related to adjustments from our 2011 divestitures. The gains have been excluded from operating results as they were not considered in our evaluation of performance for the year ended December 31, 2012.
