"In Q3 2017, WABCO set a quarterly record for sales - both reported sales and in local currencies - as we capitalized on solid year-on-year growth in the commercial vehicle market and once again demonstrated strong outperformance of global truck and bus production," said Jacques Esculier, WABCO Chairman and Chief Executive Officer."We delivered record quarterly earnings per share on a performance basis, up 11 percent versus a year ago."

"We continued to expand our platform for growth globally by completing two strategic acquisitions, keeping WABCO at the vanguard of technology innovation to serve vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators," said Esculier. "We acquired R.H. Sheppard as a key step toward providing active steering capabilities to complement WABCO's industry-leading technologies and we bought full ownership of the Meritor WABCO joint venture in North America, unifying our businesses in that region and unlocking further value for customers."

"During Q3 2017, we continued to sustain further adoption of WABCO's safety and efficiency technologies globally," said Esculier. "In particular, in North America, we further augmented WABCO content per vehicle through increased sales of automated manual transmission solutions and electronic stability control systems."

In Q3 2017, WABCO's Operating System, the company's globally standardized management environment, delivered $20.6 million of materials and conversion productivity. It generated gross materials productivity of 5.2 percent, another robust quarterly result.

"Also in Q3 2017, we remained relentless about cost efficiency across WABCO's global value chain, reaching conversion productivity of 8.1 percent in our factories," said Esculier.

WABCO continued in Q3 2017 to strongly convert income into cash, resulting in net cash from operating activities of $84.1 million.

WABCO Share Buyback Program

Since June 2011, WABCO has repurchased 19,328,912 shares for $1,591.0 million in open market transactions as of September 30, 2017. As previously disclosed, due to WABCO's two strategic acquisitions in North America during Q3 2017, no shares were bought back in this quarter, and the company is keeping its share buyback program on hold to strengthen its cash position. WABCO is further authorized to repurchase up to $480.0 million of additional shares through December 31, 2018, as previously reported.

Recent WABCO Highlights

On October 3, 2017, WABCO announced that it has completed its previously disclosed transaction to purchase Meritor, Inc.'s stake in the Meritor WABCO joint venture, which is based in Troy, Michigan. Taking full ownership of the enterprise demonstrates WABCO's commitment to consolidate its operations in North America and unify its businesses under one team and brand, unlocking further value for customers and offering seamless access to the full spectrum of WABCO's industry-leading safety and efficiency technologies. With the completion of this acquisition, WABCO further strengthens its connectivity to commercial vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators through more simplified and direct channels.

On September 19, 2017, WABCO announced that it has completed its previously disclosed acquisition of U.S.-based R.H. Sheppard Co., Inc., a key supplier of industry-leading steering technologies for commercial vehicles. Sheppard offers a suite of power-steering gears that has set the industry standard for heavy-duty commercial and specialty vehicles. Full dynamic control of commercial vehicles - lateral and longitudinal - is necessary to progressively achieve the industry's vision of autonomous driving. The acquisition of Sheppard is a key step toward providing lateral control through active steering, which is a cornerstone that complements WABCO's ability to control longitudinal movement through active braking, stability and suspension control systems. 

WABCO reported in Q3 2017 that it has signed a long-term cooperation agreement with Nexteer Automotive, a global leader in intuitive motion control, based in Auburn Hills, Michigan. WABCO and Nexteer will develop and supply active steering systems for commercial vehicles using Nexteer MagnaSteer™ Actuation technology, a breakthrough in advanced steering assistance. WABCO and Nexteer will integrate MagnaSteer technology with Sheppard's suite of power steering gears. Through an existing exclusivity agreement between Nexteer and Sheppard, WABCO can offer a compact, cost-effective, breakthrough technological solution that enables active steering control for commercial vehicle makers in North America. WABCO also has access to this technology for all medium- and heavy-duty commercial truck markets outside North America. Furthermore, this access is on an exclusive basis, except in China.

Recently, WABCO INDIA, along with Tata Motors Limited, launched electronic stability control (ESCsmart™) for trucks and buses. Tata Motors becomes the first original equipment manufacturer in India to deploy ESCsmart, adopting it for their Prima range and helping to prevent accidents by increasing vehicle stability and safety. ESCsmart functionality builds on the platforms of WABCO's industry-leading anti-lock and electronic braking systems. It is an active safety system that helps to reduce the likelihood of accidents particularly associated with rollover, skidding and jackknifing. ESCsmart also helps vehicle makers to eliminate physically testing all variants of vehicles during homologation, saving time and labor.

In Q3 2017, WABCO and G7, an award-winning technology leader in China's fleet logistic industry, announced the launch of Smart Trailer FMS, a jointly developed breakthrough trailer fleet management solution (FMS) connected with WABCO's Intelligent Trailer Program. Smart Trailer FMS is the first of its kind for the Chinese commercial vehicle market. Combining WABCO's advanced commercial vehicle control technologies and G7's industry-leading technologies such as telematics, artificial intelligence as well as advanced algorithm, Smart Trailer FMS enhances fleet safety, efficiency and asset management.

WABCO announced in Q3 2017 that it has entered into a new long-term agreement with a major global manufacturer of trucks and buses, headquartered in Europe, to supply the customer's vehicle brands with its breakthrough modular braking system platform (mBSP™). This major contract represents WABCO's single largest order ever for supply of mBSP technology. Introduced in 2014 as an industry-first technological breakthrough, WABCO's mBSP enables vehicle makers to flexibly equip their global truck and bus platforms with either anti-lock braking (ABS) or electronic braking systems (EBS) anywhere in the world. WABCO now counts four global original equipment manufacturers as customers for its industry-leading mBSP technology.

In Q3 2017, WABCO introduced OnLaneASSIST™ a pioneering safety technology for heavy- and medium-duty trucks and buses. It is the first application of active steering technology in WABCO's industry-leading portfolio of advanced driver assistance systems. OnLaneASSIST helps to improve vehicle safety and driver comfort by avoiding collisions related to unintentional lane departures. It is also WABCO's first advanced driver assistance system based on Sheppard's U.S. market-leading steering technology integrated with Nexteer's steering automation technology. In addition, WABCO introduced OnGuardPLATOON™, which helps to safely link two or more tractor-trailers within a reduced vehicle following distance. By forming virtual road-trains on highways, vehicles can increase fuel savings up to four percent due to improved aerodynamics.

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, our ability to mitigate any tax risks, including, but not limited to those risks associated with changes in legislation, tax audits and the loss of the benefits associated with our tax rulings and incentives in certain jurisdictions, 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.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures 

To facilitate the understanding of Q3 2017 results, several tables follow this news release.  Sales, gross profit, operating expenses, and operating income, which are adjusted to exclude the effects of foreign exchange, as well as EBIT, are non-GAAP financial measures and are denoted by the word "adjusted" in the line item. Additionally, gross profit, operating expenses, operating income, operating margin, EBIT, tax rate, pre-tax income attributable to the company, 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 management believes may mask the underlying operating results of the company, as applicable.  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.
