“I’m really pleased with an outstanding first quarter.

First Quarter 2012 Results
The Company reported first quarter 2012 revenue of $4.1 billion, an increase of 4.7% over the first quarter of 2011, adjusting for fluctuations in currency exchange rates and commodity movements. The increase in adjusted revenue reflects growth of 12% in Asia, 6% in North America, and 4% in Europe. Revenue in South America was down 11% as a result of reduced vehicle production.First quarter net income totaled $342 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, compared to net income of $291 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, in the prior year period (refer to footnote 2 for determination of weighted average shares outstanding and earnings per share calculations). First quarter earnings before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, other income/expense, income tax expense, and equity income (“EBITDA”) was $578 million, compared to $529 million in the prior year period, an increase of 9.3%. EBITDA margin was 14.1% in the first quarter of 2012, compared to 13.2% in the prior year period. The improvement in EBITDA reflects the contribution margin from increased revenue, continued efficiencies resulting from operational improvements, and the absence of non-recurring items, including a commercial settlement charge, in the prior year period. Partially offsetting these improvements were unfavorable currency and commodity movements, lower sales and earnings in our Thermal business segment primarily reflecting the softness in South American production volumes, and $29 million of increased expense resulting from the variable accounting impacts related to the Company’s 2010 Long-Term Incentive Plan.
