WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE:WBC) (www.wabco-auto.com), a leading innovator and global supplier of technologies that improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles, today reported Q3 2015 sales of $643.6 million, up 6.0 percent in local currencies from a year ago and down 9.0 percent in U.S. dollars, reflecting significant strengthening of the U.S. dollar year on year.

"In Q3 2015, despite a decrease of 7 percent in new truck and bus builds globally, we once again demonstrated WABCO's ongoing ability to generate sales growth that strongly outperforms the global commercial vehicle market relative to truck and bus production, as we increased sales by 6 percent in local currencies," said Jacques Esculier, WABCO Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"As anticipated, Europe, our largest market, experienced its third quarter of sequential growth as new truck and bus builds expanded by 3 percent in Q3 2015, and we delivered strong outperformance by continuing to increase adoption of WABCO's advanced safety and efficiency technologies," said Esculier. "In North America, growth in truck and bus production has slowed to 2 percent; however, we significantly outperformed the market by 16 percentage points through sustained augmentation of WABCO content per vehicle."

"In India in Q3 2015, WABCO benefited from a stronger than anticipated increase of 33 percent in new truck and bus builds due to pre-buy activity ahead of the government's anti-lock braking mandate that went into effect in October 2015," said Esculier.

"Also in Q3 2015, truck and bus production further degraded in both China and South America more suddenly and severely than we had expected. Nonetheless, WABCO strongly outperformed in China by 17 percentage points, the world's largest market for commercial vehicles, where we continued to gain market share while at the same time increasing WABCO content per vehicle," said Esculier. "In Brazil, where truck and bus builds dropped 50 percent, WABCO was able to contain its sales decline on par with the market."

In Q3 2015, WABCO reported performance operating income of $81.5 million versus $94.8 million a year ago; performance operating margin of 12.7 percent versus 13.4 percent a year ago; and performance net income attributable to the company of $80.5 million or $1.39 per diluted share versus $86.5 million or $1.44 per diluted share a year ago.

In Q3 2015, WABCO reported U.S. GAAP operating income of $29.9 million versus $87.7 million a year ago; U.S. GAAP operating margin of 4.6 percent versus 12.4 percent a year ago; and U.S. GAAP net income attributable to the company of $38.8 million or $0.67 per diluted share versus $82.0 million or $1.37 per diluted share a year ago, due to charges taken in Q3 2015 mostly associated with WABCO's previously disclosed proposals to cease manufacturing operations at two production facilities in Western Europe.

"In Q3 2015, amid the magnitude of sudden and abrupt swings in market demand by region, WABCO's global supply chain was somewhat constrained in its ability to flex resources and to reduce operating costs in line with market dynamics," said Esculier.

"Nonetheless, in Q3 2015, WABCO's Operating System, our globally standardized management environment, delivered $17.8 million of materials and conversion productivity, another significant result. It generated gross materials productivity of 4.6 percent while also achieving conversion productivity of 6.3 percent in our factories spanning 4 continents, another continued robust result," said Esculier.

During Q3 2015, WABCO generated $113.4 million in net cash from operating activities and $98.3 million of performance free cash flow, resulting in a conversion rate of 93 percent year-to-date of performance net income attributable to the company.

WABCO Commits to Deliver Additional Cost Savings

Given the high market volatility experienced in Q3 2015, WABCO has taken measures to increase its cost savings in operating expenses by an additional annualized $5 million, starting in Q4 2015, beyond its previously disclosed objective of $20 million through 2015. A year ago, WABCO initiated a comprehensive cost-reduction program by streamlining support operations, extending shared services and further leveraging its global organization, among other measures to reduce costs and increase operational efficiency.

"Our rigorous cost management strongly contributes to sustaining WABCO's commitment to shareholders," said Esculier. "In addition to driving product competitiveness and internal efficiency programs, we also continue to leverage our extensive global capability to source more materials and components from best cost countries."

Since June 2011, WABCO has repurchased 15,181,759 shares for $1,158.5 million in open market transactions as of September 30, 2015. WABCO is further authorized to repurchase up to $313.3 million of additional shares through December 31, 2016.

Recent Highlights

WABCO reported in Q3 2015 that it has entered into a new long-term agreement as major supplier for a comprehensive range of advanced and conventional technologies with one of Russia's largest heavy-duty commercial vehicle manufacturers. The new agreement marks further expansion of WABCO's partnership with this customer as WABCO is now engaged as major supplier of anti-lock braking as well as electronic braking systems; traction control and electronic stability control; and electronically controlled air suspension, among other braking and air management products that help to improve vehicle safety and efficiency.

In Q3 2015, WABCO announced that GAZ Group, a long-time customer and Russia's largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles, will adopt WABCO's industry-leading MAXX™ single-piston air disc brakes on new truck platforms. This additional major supply agreement with GAZ Group helps to improve the safety and efficiency performance of their next generation of trucks while continuing to increase WABCO content per vehicle. MAXX air disc brakes (ADB) represent the industry's lightest and highest performing single-piston ADB for commercial vehicles. Superbly engineered and compactly designed, MAXX braking technology fits virtually every wheel size of commercial vehicles around the globe.

WABCO reported in Q3 2015 that it has entered into several long-term supply agreements with JMCH, a new customer and an established major truck manufacturer based in China that is expanding into the heavy-duty truck segment. WABCO's new business involves wheel-end solutions, including air-disc brakes, as well as conventional brake valves, other brake components and clutch servo technology. WABCO will support two new and separate platforms for the customer's different brands of medium- and heavy-duty trucks. Series production is planned to begin in three years for the Chinese market and expected export to Southeast Asia. In addition to utilizing its world-class engineering and production capabilities in China, WABCO is serving JMCH by leveraging WABCO's global engineering, supply chain and manufacturing resources in Europe, Turkey and Brazil.

In Q3 2015, North American joint venture Meritor WABCO announced that Thomas Built Buses, the world's leading school bus manufacturer, will be the first to factory-install Meritor WABCO SmartTrac™ electronic stability control (ESC) on its pneumatically braked Saf-T-Liner® C2 school buses. SmartTrac ESC is an active vehicle safety system that intervenes automatically when there is a high risk of rollover or directional instability that could lead to loss of vehicle control. This innovation further strengthens Thomas Built Buses in its leadership position in school bus safety.

North American joint venture Meritor WABCO announced in Q3 2015 that WABCO's OnGuard™ collision mitigation system (CMS) is now available for use in medium-duty trucks, another first in the industry. Used extensively in heavy-duty trucks since 2007, OnGuard is North America's leading CMS, with more than 90,000 systems and over 32 billion miles now on the road. More than 200 fleets are using the system to help keep their truck drivers and fellow motorists safe. OnGuard is a radar-based active safety system for commercial vehicles that offers collision warnings and collision mitigation with active braking, as well as adaptive cruise control. It detects objects ahead and measures the vehicle's position in relation to others on the road to warn the driver of a possible rear-end collision by providing audible, visual and haptic warnings.

Recently, WABCO announced that it has successfully homologated advanced safety systems on the leading commercial vehicle platforms of two global coach manufacturers headquartered in Europe. WABCO's OnGuardACTIVE™ advanced emergency braking system and OnLane™ lane departure warning system will enable coach builders Van Hool of Belgium and VDL Bus & Coach of the Netherlands to be fully compliant with European regulation on advanced driver assistance systems taking effect on November 1, 2015. Both coach makers have already launched series production of respective vehicle platforms for European markets, featuring these industry-leading WABCO safety technologies. In addition, both customers and related regulatory agencies utilized WABCO's world-class engineering resources and test track in Germany for homologation. WABCO is the only commercial vehicle industry supplier that operates three exclusive test tracks, which are located in Jeversen, Germany; Rovaniemi, Finland; and Chennai, India.

Also in Q3 2015, WABCO opened a new facility in Chennai, India that will significantly expand its software engineering and shared services capabilities. WABCO plans to further leverage its world-class talent in India and expand its software engineering capabilities to support the local design of new products and systems for emerging markets as well as to contribute to the global development of advanced technologies for commercial vehicles. Since 2010, WABCO has more than doubled its software engineers in India to nearly 250 and anticipates adding 150 engineers over the next five years. The facility will also accommodate a team of approximately 110 professionals, who are dedicated to continuously improving the cost effectiveness and efficiency of WABCO's business operations worldwide.

On September 23, 2015, WABCO announced proposals to cease manufacturing operations at two production facilities in Western Europe to preserve the company's global competitiveness for certain mechanical products. WABCO presented proposals, in accordance with local labor laws and practices, to cease manufacturing at its facilities in Meppel, the Netherlands, and Claye-Souilly, France. These proposals would result in a total reduction of workforce of approximately 320 positions. Both of these factories make conventional mechanical components. Pending the outcome of the formal processes, production could cease at the Meppel facility by the second half of 2016, and at the Claye-Souilly plant in the second half of 2017, with production being transferred to other facilities within WABCO's globally integrated supply chain.

North American joint venture Meritor WABCO recently earned the prestigious 2015 Platinum Supplier Award from Wabash National Corp. for excellence in quality and delivery performance. Meritor WABCO is one of two suppliers to win this award six times − the most of any Wabash supplier. Wabash, a leading manufacturer of semi-trailers in North America, has recognized key companies that went above and beyond to meet increasing customer demand and maximize productivity. Meritor WABCO supplies Wabash with SmartTrac™ trailer anti-lock braking, roll stability and InfoLink™ data gateway systems. InfoLink supports tag- and lift-axle control as well as tire inflation communication systems. These innovative products contribute to the safety and efficiency performance of Wabash semi-trailers in North America.

WABCO Updates Full Year 2015 Guidance

"Based on our current estimates of future market conditions - as well as adverse foreign exchange effects year on year - we believe it is timely to update WABCO's previously disclosed guidance for full year 2015," said Esculier.

WABCO expects full year 2015 sales growth to now range from 5.5 to 6.5 percent versus previous guidance from 6 to 9 percent in local currencies.

WABCO expects performance operating margin to now range from 13.4 to 13.7 percent versus previous guidance from 14.0 to 14.5 percent and operating margin on a U.S. GAAP basis to now range from 10.4 to 10.7 percent versus previous guidance from 12.9 to 13.4 percent.

WABCO expects diluted EPS on a performance basis to now range from $5.50 to $5.60 versus previous guidance from $5.60 to $5.85 and diluted EPS on a U.S. GAAP basis to now range from $4.12 to $4.22 versus previous guidance from $4.89 to $5.14.

In addition, WABCO expects in 2015 to convert more than 85 percent of its performance net income attributable to the company into performance free cash flow.

"This updated guidance still reflects WABCO's continuous global outperformance of markets, while also demonstrating our ability to transform top-line growth into solid bottom-line results," said Esculier. "We also reaffirm our commitment to generate a healthy incremental operating margin consistent with our financial operating framework and at the same time to deliver robust free cash-flow conversion." Incremental operating margin refers to the ratio of year-on-year increase in performance operating income and WABCO's growth in sales.

"Now, more than ever, we are demonstrating our passion for bringing differentiated and innovative, cost-effective, value-based solutions to commercial vehicle makers and fleet operators in every region of the world," said Esculier. "We also remain fully confident in our ability to continue to deliver outstanding 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, our ability to successfully integrate any acquired businesses or our acquired businesses not performing as planned 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 2015 results, several tables follow this news release. Sales excluding the effects of foreign exchange and EBIT are non-GAAP financial measures. Additionally, operating income, operating margin, 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 items for separation, streamlining and acquisition, discrete and one-time tax items, and other items that may mask the underlying operating results of the company, as applicable. Performance free cash flow presents our net cash provided by operating activities less net cash used for purchases of property, plant, equipment, and computer software; and excludes streamlining, separation, indirect tax-related and acquisition payments. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, GAAP measures. These measures may not be comparable to similar measures of other companies as not all companies calculate these measures in the same manner. 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.
