PACCAR Notches Record Annual Revenues, Strong Profits

| January 30, 2018


PACCAR (Nasdaq: PCAR) achieved its 79th consecutive year of net income,” said Ron Armstrong, chief executive officer. “PACCAR’s financial results reflect the company’s premium-quality products and services, record heavy-duty truck market share in the U.S. and Canada, record aftermarket parts results and a strong European truck market.

He added, “PACCAR is well-positioned for long-term growth with ongoing investments in new truck models, integrated PACCAR powertrains, enhanced aerodynamic truck designs, advanced driver assistance and truck connectivity technologies, and expanded manufacturing and parts distribution facilities,” added Armstrong.

The company achieved record quarterly net sales and financial service revenues of $5.45 billion in the fourth quarter 2017 compared to $4.07 billion for the same period in 2016. PACCAR earned $589.2 million ($1.67 per diluted share) for the fourth quarter of 2017, including $173.4 million of net tax benefits resulting from recent changes to U.S. tax law.

The one-time net tax benefits include a reduction of net deferred tax liabilities of $304.0 million, partially offset by a tax on accumulated foreign earnings of $130.6 million. Excluding the one-time tax benefits, the comapny reported adjusted net income (non-GAAP)1 of $415.8 million ($1.18 per diluted share). The company earned $288.8 million ($.82 per diluted share) in the fourth quarter of 2016.

PACCAR achieved record revenues of $19.46 billion in 2017, a 14 percent increase compared to revenues of $17.03 billion in 2016. PACCAR earned $1.68 billion ($4.75 per diluted share) in 2017, including the $173.4 million one-time tax benefit. Excluding the one-time tax benefit, PACCAR earned adjusted net income (non-GAAP)1 of $1.50 billion ($4.26 per diluted share). The company reported annual net income of $521.7 million ($1.48 per diluted share) in 2016, including an $833.0 million non-recurring charge for a European Commission (EC) settlement. Excluding the charge, PACCAR reported adjusted net income (non-GAAP)1 of $1.35 billion ($3.85 per diluted share) in 2016.

United States Tax Reform Benefit

“The enacted tax legislation will generate positive cash flow for PACCAR as well as benefit the transportation industry in the United States,” said Harrie Schippers, president and chief financial officer. “The revised corporate tax rate, comparable to other leading OECD countries’ tax rates, and accelerated machinery and equipment depreciation, will likely stimulate increased capital investment in the United States.” The comapny estimates that its 2018 effective global tax rate will be 23 to 25 percent, compared to approximately 31 percent prior to the new tax law.
