North America

AGCO’s North American sales grew 19.8% in the full year of 2012 compared to 2011, excluding the impact of unfavorable currency translation and the acquisition benefit from GSI. Elevated levels of farm income continued to support strong industry demand from the professional farming sector and produced healthy growth for AGCO. The most significant increases were in high horsepower tractors, sprayers and hay equipment. The positive contribution of acquisitions, higher sales and margin improvement initiatives all contributed to growth in income from operations of $169.0 million for the full year of 2012 compared to 2011.
