  • U.S. GAAP earnings of $1.03 per diluted share.
    • Excluding the $(0.10) per diluted share impact of retirement related obligations, and $(0.03) per diluted share related to net tax adjustments, net earnings were $1.16 per diluted share, down 3% from fourth quarter 2011.

Comment and Outlook: "Market conditions were challenging in the fourth quarter," said James Verrier, President and CEO of BorgWarner.  "Global light vehicle production in the fourth quarter was up approximately 1% from a year ago, but light vehicle production in Europe, a market which comprises nearly half of our sales, was down approximately 11%. Our sales were flat during the same period, excluding the impact of foreign currencies and 2011 and 2012 dispositions. Despite this challenging sales environment, the continued focus on execution at our operations resulted in a solid operating income margin of 10.9% in the fourth quarter, excluding non-comparable items."

"In 2012, our sales, earnings and operating income margin set all-time records on a comparable basis. In 2013, we expect reported sales growth of 2% to 6% compared with 2012, or sales growth of 3% to 7% excluding the impact of 2012 dispositions, earnings of $5.15 to $5.45 per diluted share and an operating income margin of 11.5% or better. We anticipate that this will continue our record financial pace despite difficult market conditions in Europe," said Verrier.

Financial Results: Net sales were $1,719 million in fourth quarter 2012, down 3% from $1,774 million in fourth quarter 2011. Net earnings in the quarter were $121 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, compared with $122 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, in fourth quarter 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 net earnings included net non-comparable items of $(0.13) per diluted share. Fourth quarter 2011 net earnings included non-comparable items of $(0.19) per diluted share. These items are listed in a table below as reconciliations of non-U.S. GAAP measures, which are provided by the company for comparison with other results, and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. The impact of foreign currencies, primarily the Euro, decreased net sales by approximately $22 million, and decreased net earnings by approximately $0.02 per diluted share, in fourth quarter 2012 compared with fourth quarter 2011.

Full year 2012 net sales were $7,183 million, up 1% compared with $7,115 million in 2011. Full year 2012 net earnings were $501 million, or $4.17 per diluted share, compared with $550 million, or $4.45 per diluted share, in 2011. Full year 2012 net earnings included net non-comparable items of $(0.80) per diluted share. Full year 2011 net earnings included non-comparable items which, when netted, had no impact on reported earnings per diluted share. These items are listed in a table below as reconciliations of non-U.S. GAAP measures, which are provided by the company for comparison with other results, and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. The impact of foreign currencies, primarily the Euro, decreased net sales by approximately $325 million, and decreased net earnings by approximately $0.22 per diluted share, in 2012 compared with 2011.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $879 million in 2012 compared with $708 million in 2011. Investments in capital expenditures, including tooling outlays, totaled $407 million in 2012, compared with $394 million in 2011. Balance sheet debt decreased by $262 million and cash increased by $356 million compared with the end of 2011. The $618 million decrease in balance sheet debt (net of cash) was primarily due to net cash provided by operating activities and the company's settlement of its convertible senior notes, which was partially offset by share repurchases. The ratio of balance sheet debt (net of cash) to capital was 10.0% at the end of 2012 compared with 28.3% at the end of 2011.

Engine Group Results: Engine segment net sales were $1,167 million in fourth quarter 2012 compared with $1,245 million in fourth quarter 2011. Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies and 2011 and 2012 dispositions, net sales were down 2% from the prior year's quarter. Higher sales of light vehicle turbochargers in China and variable cam timing devices in Japan were offset by volume declines across the Group's product portfolio in Europe related to the economic slowdown in the region. Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes and non-controlling interest ("Adjusted EBIT") were $182 million in fourth quarter 2012, down 10% from $203 million in fourth quarter 2011.

Drivetrain Group Results: Drivetrain segment net sales were $559 million in fourth quarter 2012 compared with $534 million in fourth quarter 2011. Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies, net sales were up 5% from the prior year's quarter.  Strong all-wheel drive system sales in North America and India combined with higher sales of traditional transmission components in Korea offset declines across the Group's product portfolio in Europe related to the economic slowdown in the region. Adjusted EBIT was $49 million in fourth quarter 2012, up 5% from $47 million in fourth quarter 2011.

Recent Highlights:

The BorgWarner Board of Directors announced the appointment of James R. Verrier, 50, to president and chief executive officer effective January 1, 2013, at which time he also joined the Board of Directors. Former chief executive officer, Timothy M. Manganello, 62, will continue as executive chairman of the company until his planned retirement at the April 24, 2013 annual meeting, at which time he will step down from the Board. Robin J. Adams, Vice Chairman and former chief financial officer, will also step down from the Board at the annual meeting in connection with his planned retirement from the company. The Board also announced that at the time of Manganello's retirement, the company's present lead director, Alexis P. Michas, will become non-executive chairman of the Board.

  • In November, the company reported an expected backlog of $2.3 billion of net new business for the period 2013 through 2015. Demand for the company's advanced powertrain technologies, such as gasoline and diesel turbochargers, dual-clutch transmission technology, engine timing systems and emissions products, is expected to continue to drive strong growth.

  • For the first time, BorgWarner supplies its innovative three-stage turbocharging technology for BMW's M Performance diesel engine, the most powerful six-cylinder in-line diesel engine in the world. Exclusively developed for BMW M Performance automobiles, the engine powers the M550d xDrive Sedan and Touring, X5 M50d Touring, and X6 M50d models.

  • Propelled by the rapidly growing Chinese automotive market, BorgWarner opened another production plant at its campus in Ningbo, China, on November 28, 2012. The all-new high-tech manufacturing facility will produce and test Morse TEC variable cam timing (VCT) technologies and engine timing systems to support the production and launch of over 50 programs with more than 20 different customers. The opening ceremony also celebrated the inauguration of BorgWarner's world-class Ningbo Engineering Center which provides research and development, applications engineering and management support.
