The company said it would suspend its quarterly dividend after the sale closes. Shares jumped more than 8 percent in premarket trading.

Analysts polled by Reuters had expected operating profit of $2,814 a share. For the full year, operating profit rose 5 percent to $17.36 billion, or $10,564 a share.
Sysco — The company plans to reduce its workforce by about 2 percent, or 1,200 positions, over the next 15 months with focus on "administrative, non-customer-facing roles," according a release giving details on Sysco's three-year plan. Shares were more than 1.5 percent higher in premarket trading.

Federal-Mogul said its board would appoint a special committee to review the offer.
