WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE:WBC), a leading global supplier of technologies to improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles, today reported Q2 2014 sales of $735.0 million, up 5.9 percent in local currencies from a year ago and up 8.4 percent in U.S. dollars, including the Q2 2014 consolidated results in local currencies of Transics International, WABCO's previously disclosed acquisition.

WABCO reported Q2 2014 performance operating income of $98.2 million, up from $91.7 million a year ago, and operating income was $90.4 million on a U.S. GAAP basis, up from $86.4 million a year ago.

WABCO's performance operating margin for Q2 2014 was 13.4 percent (which was adversely affected by 0.20 percent from currency transactional effects year on year) versus 13.5 percent a year ago, and operating margin was 12.3 percent on a U.S. GAAP basis versus 12.7 percent a year ago.

"In Q2 2014, we continued to demonstrate our ability to outperform the market in every region as we further increased WABCO content per vehicle and steadily expanded market share in a still volatile and uncertain market that contracted by 5 percent year on year," said Jacques Esculier, WABCO Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"In addition, in Q2 2014, we delivered a new quarterly record of performance gross profit margin at 31.6 percent, leading to a performance operating income at $98.2 million," said Esculier. "Furthermore, we continued to demonstrate our ability to deliver outstanding value for WABCO's shareowners by setting a new quarterly record for performance earnings per diluted share at $1.42, exceeding the previous record by $0.12."

"In Q2 2014, WABCO achieved $19.0 million of materials and conversion productivity, while also continuing to contain price erosion. However, as anticipated, performance operating margin continued to be negatively impacted by headwinds from currency transactional dynamics," said Esculier. "WABCO's Operating System, our global management environment, further enabled fast and flexible responses to market changes during Q2 2014 and generated gross materials productivity of 5.2 percent and conversion productivity of 6.4 percent, both showing continued robust quarterly gains."

For Q2 2014, WABCO reported performance net income attributable to the company of $86.6 million or $1.42 per diluted share, up from $82.4 million or $1.30 per diluted share a year ago, and Q2 2014 U.S. GAAP net income attributable to the company of $75.0 million or $1.23 per diluted share versus $83.2 million or $1.31 per diluted share a year ago.

During Q2 2014, WABCO generated $116.7 million in net cash from operating activities and $93.5 million of free cash flow, excluding payments of $4.7 million for streamlining, separation and acquisition items, resulting in a conversion rate of 108 percent of performance net income attributable to the company.

Since June 2011, WABCO has repurchased 12,067,889 shares for $820.9 million in open market transactions as of June 30, 2014. WABCO is authorized to repurchase up to $179.1 million of additional shares through December 31, 2014.

Recent Highlights

On July 17, 2014, WABCO reported the launch of its industry-first modular braking system platform (mBSP) and disclosed that it has already won major contracts for this breakthrough technology from two global commercial vehicle makers headquartered in Europe. WABCO's latest innovative braking architecture now enables its customers to interchangeably equip their diverse global truck and bus platforms with anti-lock braking (ABS) or electronic braking (EBS) systems based on regional market or regulatory requirements worldwide. WABCO's next generation mBSP features the industry's highest standardization across ABS and EBS components and systems software. One customer contract is WABCO's single largest ever as the company will provide mBSP with ABS and EBS applications to equip the customer's next generation of trucks and buses to be manufactured in Europe, North America, Brazil and India from 2017 through 2021. WABCO will provide EBS for the other customer's range of commercial vehicles from 2018 through 2022. WABCO had announced the incremental business associated with both contracts in April 2014.

WABCO announced in July 2014, that its newly acquired fleet management solutions (FMS) company, Transics International, signed a ground-breaking contract with Saudi-Arabia based Almarai, one of the world's largest dairy companies. It marks the global expansion of Transics, a market leader in Europe, after WABCO acquired the company in February 2014. Transics will equip Almarai's long-haul fleet of more than 1,300 trucks with its industry-leading fleet management system, further enhancing safety performance and operational efficiency. Starting in August 2014, Transics will upgrade Almarai's trucks with advanced TX-SKY on-board computers and install its web-based back office system TX-CONNECT for efficient truck, driver, trailer and cargo management. Transics expects to furnish Almarai's entire fleet of long-haul trucks by the second quarter of 2015.

WABCO reported in Q2 2014 that it has expanded its TailGUARD(TM) safety system to include waste management vehicles for the first time. TailGUARD helps to improve vehicle and operator safety by combining rear blind-spot detection and automatic braking. It assists operators while driving in reverse to detect both stationary and moving objects in rear blind spots via audio and visual signals. TailGUARD can also automatically apply the brakes of vehicles equipped with anti-lock braking to prevent collisions. WABCO introduced TailGUARD technology in 2010 and today it protects more than 5,000 trailers across Europe.

In Q2 2014, WABCO disclosed that it rounded off yet another successful year in China by receiving a record number of 15 awards from leading industry bodies, customers and peers in recognition of the company's outstanding performance on improving customer service through innovation and productivity. Twelve of the awards were received from leading commercial vehicle manufacturers. WABCO also won major awards from industry bodies for performance in areas such as environmental stewardship and innovations in technology.

WABCO announced in July 2014 that the Madras Management Association (MMA) has granted its 2014 Award for Managerial Excellence in Manufacturing to WABCO INDIA. The MMA recognized WABCO for excellence in multiple areas, including financial performance, product innovation and customer awards. The MMA promotes world-class standards of management education and training in India since its founding in 1956. Today, more than 8,000 companies, institutions and individuals hold membership in the MMA.

In Q2 2014, WABCO announced the opening of a new Application Engineering Center in Pune, India. The new center, WABCO's second of its kind in India, will allow WABCO's engineers to work closely with global commercial vehicle manufacturers in India to jointly develop customized products and solutions across a broad range of vehicle platforms. The WABCO team at the new Application Engineering Center will consist of application engineers and test engineers to provide custom-tailored support to its broad base of customers. This facility enables WABCO to further differentiate itself by providing on-demand and on-time support to all of its original equipment customers.

In Q2 2014, WABCO disclosed that it has successfully acquired the remaining 3.16 percent of Transics International. As previously announced in February 2014, WABCO had acquired 96.84 percent of Transics International shares for a net consideration of EUR 95.8 million. WABCO subsequently made a public offer to acquire the remaining 3.16 percent of outstanding shares, consistent with Belgian takeover rules. WABCO now owns 100 percent of the securities issued by Transics International NV for which WABCO paid in net consideration a total amount of EUR 99.9 million.

WABCO Updates Full Year 2014 Guidance

Based on our current estimates of future market conditions, WABCO tightens its previously disclosed guidance for full year 2014. WABCO expects full year 2014 sales growth to now range from 6 to 9 percent in local currencies, versus previous guidance to range from 6 to 11 percent; performance operating margin to now range from 12.9 to 13.3, versus previous guidance to range from 12.8 to 13.6 percent; and operating margin on a U.S. GAAP basis to now range from 12.2 to 12.6 percent, versus previous guidance to range from 12.4 to 13.2 percent, resulting in diluted EPS on a performance basis to now range from $5.45 to $5.75, versus previous guidance to range from $5.30 to $5.80 and diluted EPS on a U.S. GAAP basis to now range from $4.77 to $5.07, versus previous guidance to range from $4.78 to $5.28.

Consistent with its committed framework, WABCO reiterates that it expects in 2014 to convert between 80 and 90 percent of its net income attributable to the company into free cash flow, excluding payments associated with streamlining, separation and acquisition items.

"Looking ahead, our three-pillar strategy of technology leadership, globalization and excellence in execution will continue to drive WABCO's differentiation that positions us as preferred supplier in the global commercial vehicle industry," said Esculier. "Indeed, our solid results in Q2 2014 proved once again that, despite uncertainty and volatility in demand across different regions, WABCO continues to strongly outperform the market while we also maintain our ability to reliably deliver a robust incremental operating margin," referring to the ratio of increase in performance operating income and WABCO's growth in sales.

Forward-Looking Statements

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 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. All market and industry data are based on company estimates.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To facilitate the understanding of Q2 2014 results, several tables follow this news release. Sales excluding the effects of foreign exchange and EBIT are non-GAAP financial measures. Additionally, operating income, EBIT, 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 streamlining, separation and acquisition items, and discrete and other one-time tax items, as applicable. Free cash flow presents our net cash provided by operating activities less net cash used for purchases of property, plant, equipment, and computer software. These measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, GAAP measures. 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.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, will discuss how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to im...
Unless you don’t use the internet, don’t live in California, or haven’t been paying attention to the recent news… you should be aware that self-driving cars are on their way to becoming a reality. I have seen them – they are real. If you believe in the future reality of self-driving cars, then continue reading on. If you don’t believe in the future possibilities, then I am not sure what to do to convince you other than discuss the very real changes that will roll out with the consumer producti...
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
