Cummins Announces First Quarter Results; Raises Outlook for 2017

EBIT of 12.3 percent of sales, Diluted EPS of $2.36

Full year 2017 revenues expected to be up 4 to 7 percent, compared to prior guidance of flat to down 5 percent

--EBIT expected to be in the range of 11.75 to 12.5 percent, up from 11 to 11.5 percent

Cummins Inc. (CMI) today reported results for the first quarter of 2017.

First quarter revenues of $4.6 billion increased 7 percent from the same quarter in 2016. Stronger demand from construction and mining customers and higher sales from a distributor acquisition in the fourth quarter of last year, more than offset the impact of weaker truck production in North America. Currency negatively impacted revenues by approximately 1 percent compared to last year, primarily due to a stronger US dollar. International sales improved by 17 percent primarily due to growth in China and Europe while revenues in North America increased 1 percent.

Net income attributable to Cummins in the first quarter was $396 million ($2.36 per diluted share), compared to $321 million ($1.87 per diluted share). The tax rate in the first quarter of 2017 was 26.1 percent.

Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) were $566 million, or 12.3 percent of sales, an increase from $484 million or 11.3 percent of sales a year ago.

"Cummins delivered solid financial results, successfully launched new products and returned $222 million in cash to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases in the first quarter," said Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger. "We launched our fully updated range of engines for North American truck and bus markets offering improved performance and better fuel economy for our customers. As recently announced, we also advanced our strategy to be the leading global powertrain supplier through our agreement with Eaton to form the Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies joint venture. This new venture will design, develop and produce the next generation of Automated Transmissions which will be fully integrated with our engine development to deliver up to an additional 7 percent improvement in fuel economy. The joint venture will benefit from the continuing shift away from fully manual transmissions in commercial vehicles, launch new products that will gain market share, leverage Cummins’ strong presence in international markets for growth and generate aftermarket sales."

Based on the current forecast, Cummins expects full year 2017 revenues to be up 4 to 7 percent, compared to prior guidance of flat to down 5 percent. EBIT is projected to be in the range of 11.75 to 12.5 percent of sales, up from 11 to 11.5 percent. This forecast excludes the impact of the new joint venture with Eaton, which will be consolidated within Cummins’ financial results and is expected to be operational in the third quarter of this year, subject to regulatory approvals.

First quarter 2017 highlights:

The Company returned $222 million to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchase, consistent with its plan to return 50 percent of Operating Cash Flow in 2017

Cummins was named to Ethisphere’s 2017 list of World’s Most Ethical Companies for a 10th consecutive year by the Ethisphere Institute

In March, the Company announced its plans to reach a 50 percent intensity reduction in water use at its facilities by 2020

Earnings before interest, income taxes and noncontrolling interests

We define EBIT as earnings before interest expense, income tax expense and noncontrolling interests in income of consolidated subsidiaries. We use EBIT to assess and measure the performance of our operating segments and also as a component in measuring our variable compensation programs. This measure is not in accordance with, or an alternative for, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and may not be consistent with measures used by other companies. It should be considered supplemental data. Below is a reconciliation of "Net income attributable to Cummins Inc." to EBIT for each of the applicable periods:

Component Segment Sales by Business

In the first quarter of 2017, our Components segment reorganized its reporting structure to move a small piece of the emission solutions business to the fuel systems business to enhance operational, administrative and product development efficiencies. Prior year balances were reclassified to conform with this change.
