<p class='bwalignc'> <b>-- Reduces fourth quarter and full year earnings per diluted share by 7 cents --</b> </p>

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Cummins Revises Previously Announced 2012 Pre-Tax Earnings Results by $20 Million08:00 EST Wednesday, February 20, 2013 COLUMBUS, Ind. (Business Wire) -- Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced today that it has revised its previously announced fourth quarter and full year 2012 operating results to reflect information learned in February related to certain legal matters. The revisions were made to reflect a post-period increase to the Company's contingent legal reserves for a recent adverse court ruling in a commercial contract dispute. As a result of the new information, Earnings Before Interest and Taxes (EBIT) for the fourth quarter and the full year decreased by $20 million, while net income attributable to Cummins was reduced by $12 million, or $0.07 per diluted share. This matter does not alter operating segment results as previously reported. The Company's revised fourth quarter EBIT was $532 million excluding $52 million of restructuring costs. Net income attributable to Cummins was $369 million, or $1.95 cents per diluted share, including $0.19 per diluted share of restructuring costs and one-time tax benefits of $0.21 per diluted share. For the full year, the Company's revised EBIT, excluding special items, was $2.35 billion or 13.6% of sales compared to $2.6 billion or 14.2% of sales in 2011. Net income for the full year 2012 was $1.65 billion ($8.67 per diluted share) down from $1.85 billion ($9.55 per diluted share) in 2011. Excluding the costs of restructuring ($0.18 per diluted share), and the gain on the sale of the exhaust business ($0.02 per diluted share), the Company reported Net Income for 2012 of $1.68 billion ($8.83 per diluted share).

These actions were in response to deterioration in our U.S. businesses and most key markets around the world in the second half of 2012, as well as a reduction in orders in most U.S. and global markets for 2013. We reduced our worldwide professional workforce by approximately 650 employees, or 3 percent. We also reduced our hourly workforce by approximately 650 employees. During 2012, we incurred a pre-tax charge related to the professional and hourly workforce reductions of approximately $49 million. Employee termination and severance costs were recorded based on approved plans developed by the businesses and corporate management which specified positions to be eliminated, benefits to be paid under existing severance plans or statutory requirements and the expected timetable for completion of the plan. Estimates of restructuring were made based on information available at the time charges were recorded. Due to the inherent uncertainty involved, actual amounts paid for such activities may differ from amounts initially recorded and we may need to revise previous estimates. We incurred a $1 million charge for lease terminations and a $2 million charge for asset impairments and other non-cash charges. During 2012, we recorded restructuring and other charges of $52 million ($35 million after-tax). These restructuring actions included:               Year endedIn millionsDecember 31, 2012 Workforce reductions $ 49 Exit activities 1 Other   2 Restructuring and other charges $ 52   If the 2012 restructuring actions are successfully implemented, we expect the annualized savings from the professional actions to be approximately $39 million. At December 31, 2012, of the approximately 1,300 employees to be affected by this plan, 1,130 had been terminated. Restructuring charges were included in each segment in our operating results. The table below summarizes where the restructuring costs are located in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income for the year ended December 31, 2012.           Year endedIn millionsDecember 31, 2012 Cost of sales $ 29 Selling, general and administrative expenses 20 Research, development and engineering expenses   3 Restructuring and other charges $ 52   NOTE 3.INCOME TAXES Our income tax rates are generally less than the 35 percent U.S. income tax rate primarily because of lower taxes on foreign earnings and research tax credits. Our effective tax rate for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012 was 16.1 percent and 23.5 percent, respectively. The tax rate for the fourth quarter and full year includes one-time tax items that total a benefit of $39 million ($0.21 per diluted share) and $55 million ($0.29 per diluted share), respectively. The one-time tax items for the fourth quarter and full year related primarily to benefits resulting from transactions entered into and elections made with respect to our U.K. operations. Our effective tax rate for the fourth quarter and full year of 2011 was 24.5 percent and 27.1 percent, respectively. Excluding the gain on sale of certain assets and liabilities of the businesses and the flood insurance recovery, our effective tax rate for the fourth quarter and full year of 2011 was 22.8 percent and 26.3 percent, respectively. A reconciliation of the U.S. federal income tax rate of 35 percent to the actual effective tax rate is as follows:   Years ended December 31,2012   2011 U.S. federal statutory rate 35.0%   35.0 % State income tax, net of federal effect 1.0 0.4 Research tax credits (0.4) (4.7) Differences in rates and taxability of foreign subsidiaries and joint ventures (12.1) (4.6) Other, net - 1.0 Effective tax rate 23.5% 27.1 %   On January 2, 2013, the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 was enacted. This legislation retroactively extended the U.S. federal research credit for two years, from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2013. We expect our 2013 effective tax rate, which will include an estimated 1 percent benefit for the 2013 research credit, to be 26 percent excluding any one-time tax items that may arise. Additionally, we anticipate that our first quarter 2013 results will include a one-time tax benefit of approximately $28 million representing the net benefit attributable to the 2012 research credit. NOTE 4.DEPRECIATION AND AMORTIZATION Depreciation and amortization expense included in operating activities of the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, was $361 million and $325 million, respectively. CUMMINS INC. AND SUBSIDIARIESFINANCIAL MEASURES THAT SUPPLEMENT GAAP(Unaudited)Net income and diluted earnings per share (EPS) attributable to Cummins Inc. excluding special items We believe this is a useful measure of our operating performance for the period presented as it illustrates our operating performance without regard to special items including the gains related to restructuring charges, one-time income tax items, the sale of certain assets and liabilities and a flood insurance recovery. This measure is not in accordance with, or an alternative for, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and may not be consistent with measures used by other companies. It should be considered supplemental data. The following table reconciles net income attributable to Cummins Inc. to net income attributable to Cummins Inc. excluding special items for the quarters ended December 31, 2012, September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 and for the years ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011.     Three months endedDecember 31, 2012   September 30, 2012   December 31, 2011In millionsNet Income   Diluted EPSNet Income   Diluted EPSNet Income   Diluted EPS Net income attributable to Cummins Inc. $369$1.95 $ 352 $ 1.86 $ 548 $ 2.86 Add Restructuring charges 350.19 - - - - Less One-time tax benefits(1)390.21 16 0.08 - - Gain on sale of business(2)-- - - 33 0.17 Flood insurance recovery(3)-- - - 24 0.13                           Net income attributable to Cummins Inc. excluding special items $365$1.93 $ 336 $ 1.78 $ 491 $ 2.56   For the years endedDecember 31, 2012December 31, 2011In millionsNet IncomeDiluted EPSNet IncomeDiluted EPS Net income attributable to Cummins Inc. $1,645$8.67 $ 1,848 $ 9.55 Add Restructuring charges 350.18 - - Less One-time tax benefits(1)550.29 - - Gain on sale of business(2)40.02 70 0.36 Flood insurance recovery(3)-- 24 0.12                 Net income attributable to Cummins Inc. excluding special items $1,621$8.54 $ 1,754 $ 9.07 (1)   The one-time tax benefits for the three months ended December 31, 2012, and the year ended December 31, 2012, related primarily to benefits resulting from transactions entered into and elections made with respect to our U.K. operations. The three month period ended September 30, 2012, included a $16 million one-time tax benefit for third quarter 2012, $6 million of which related to a dividend distribution of accumulated foreign income earned in prior years. These one-time tax adjustments also included a one-time tax benefit of $13 million for prior year tax return true-up adjustments and a one-time tax charge of $3 million related to the third quarter enactment of U.K. tax law changes. (2) In the second and fourth quarter of 2011 we sold certain assets and liabilities of our exhaust business and our light-duty filtration business. In the second quarter of 2011 we recognized a gain on the sale of $68 million ($37 million after-tax).
