Cummins Announces Results for the First Quarter of 2014; Improving Demand in North America Drives Revenue Growth

First Quarter Revenues of $4.4 Billion, EBIT of 12.0 Percent of Sales; Full Year Revenue Expected to Grow Between 6 and 10 Percent and EBIT to Be in the Range of 12.75 to 13.25 Percent of Sales

COLUMBUS, IN--(Marketwired - April 29, 2014) - Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today reported results for the first quarter of 2014.

First quarter revenue of $4.4 billion increased 12 percent from the same quarter in 2013. The increase year-over-year was driven by stronger demand in on-highway markets and distributor acquisitions in North America.

Revenues in North America increased 25 percent while international sales were flat compared to the first quarter a year ago. Within international markets, weakness in India, Australia, Mexico and Brazil offset higher revenues in China and Europe.

Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) were $528 million for the first quarter or 12.0 percent of sales. This compares to $437 million or 11.1 percent of sales a year ago.

Net income attributable to Cummins in the first quarter was $338 million ($1.83 per diluted share), compared to $282 million ($1.49 per diluted share) in the first quarter of 2013.

"We delivered good incremental margins in the first quarter as demand in on-highway markets in North America improved. We are also well on track to deliver the expected benefits from our North American distributor acquisitions as we execute our plans and end market demand improves. Conditions in a number of international markets remain very weak, particularly in India and Australia, leading to lower demand for power generation and mining equipment," said Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger. "We continue to release exciting new products that will drive future profitable growth and we repurchased 3 million shares in the first quarter, consistent with our commitment to return 50 percent of full year operating cash flow to shareholders through a combination of dividends and share repurchase."

Based on the current forecast, Cummins expects full year 2014 revenues to grow between 6% and 10%, up from its previous forecast of growth of between 4% and 8%, due largely to improving demand in North America. EBIT is expected to be in the range of 12.75 to 13.25 percent of sales.

Other recent highlights:

  • For the seventh consecutive year, Cummins has been named one of the world's most ethical companies by The Ethisphere Institute;
  • FORTUNE magazine named Cummins one of America's Most Admired Companies; and
  • Cummins became the first company to receive EPA Tier4 Final certification for high-horsepower generator sets.

NOTE 2. INCOME TAXES

Our effective tax rate for the year is expected to approximate 28.5 percent, excluding any one-time items that may arise. The research tax credit expired December 31, 2013 and has not yet been renewed by Congress. Our tax rate is generally less than the 35 percent U.S. statutory income tax rate primarily due to lower tax rates on foreign income. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 30, 2014, was 29.9 percent. This tax rate includes a $12 million discrete tax expense primarily attributable to state deferred tax adjustments, as well as a $5 million discrete net tax benefit resulting from a $70 million dividend paid from China earnings generated prior to 2012.

Our tax rate for the three month period ended December 31, 2013 was 15.7 percent. We recorded $70 million or $0.38 per share of tax benefits in the fourth quarter of 2013. The income tax provision for the fourth quarter of 2013 was net of the following items:

Lower operating rate primarily resulting from recognition of state          
 and federal research and development credits and the recurring             
 impacts of foreign legal entity restructuring actions                    37

                                                                    ========
                                                                            

Our effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2013, was 27.6 percent. This tax rate included a discrete tax benefit of $28 million attributable to the 2012 research credit reinstated in January 2013 as well as a discrete tax expense of $17 million, which primarily related to the write-off of a deferred tax asset deemed unrecoverable. The increase in the three month effective tax rate from 2013 to 2014 is attributable primarily to one-time discrete tax benefits in 2013 that did not repeat in 2014 and changes in U.S. state tax legislation that unfavorably impacted our 2014 effective tax rate.

NOTE 3. ACQUISITION  

Cummins Mid-South LLC

On February 14, 2014, we acquired the remaining 62.2 percent interest in Cummins Mid-South LLC (Mid-South) from the former distributor principal. The preliminary purchase consideration was $116 million, which included $32 million in cash and an additional $61 million paid to eliminate outstanding debt. The remaining $23 million will be paid in future periods, subject to customary purchase price adjustments. The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination and the results of the acquired entity were included in the Distribution operating segment subsequent to the acquisition date. As a result of this transaction, first quarter 2014 Distribution segment results included a $6 million gain, as we were required to re-measure our pre-existing 37.8 percent ownership interest in Mid-South to fair value. The transaction generated $3 million of goodwill based on the preliminary purchase price allocation. Net sales for Mid-South were $368 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. This amount is not fully incremental to our consolidated sales as the amount would be reduced by the elimination of sales to the previously unconsolidated entity.

Earnings before interest, taxes and noncontrolling interests

We define EBIT as earnings before interest expense, income tax expense and noncontrolling interests in income of consolidated subsidiaries (EBIT). 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 of America and may not be consistent with measures used by other companies. It should be considered supplemental data. Below is a reconciliation of EBIT to "Net income attributable to Cummins Inc.," for each of the applicable periods:
