Tenneco Reports Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2012 Financial Results

During the year, Tenneco completed a stock buyback plan, repurchasing 600,000 shares of its outstanding common stock for $18 million to offset dilution from shares issued to employees in 2012.

Debt

At December 31, 2012, Tenneco’s debt net of cash was $957 million, compared with $1.01 billion at the end of 2011. The company’s continued earnings improvement and strong cash generation resulted in a new all-time low net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 1.5x.
