Good Global Truck Markets

Class 8 truck industry retail sales for the U.S. and Canada are expected to be in a range of 210,000-220,000 vehicles in 2017. Class 8 truck industry retail sales for the U.S. and Canada are estimated to increase in 2018 to a range of 220,000-250,000 vehicles. Peterbilt and Kenworth achieved strong year-to-date U.S. and Canada Class 8 retail sales market share of 30.1 percent, compared to 27.9 percent in the same period last year. “Our customers are benefiting from the excellent operating efficiency of the industry-leading Peterbilt and Kenworth trucks and PACCAR Powertrain,” said Gary Moore, PACCAR executive vice president.

“Customer demand in Europe has been robust this year due to continued economic growth and the superior operating performance of the new DAF XF, CF and LF trucks,” said Preston Feight, DAF president and PACCAR vice president. “DAF’s Eindhoven, Netherlands factory is producing trucks at record daily build rates.” It is estimated that the European truck industry registrations in the above 16-tonne segment will be in the range of 300,000-310,000 units this year, one of the best markets in history. Registrations are projected to result in another excellent market in 2018 in the range of 280,000-310,000 units.

PACCAR Launches Proprietary 12-Speed Automated Transmission in North America

In August, PACCAR launched the new PACCAR Automated Transmission, the lightest transmission for Class 8 on-highway vehicles. The PACCAR transmission is designed to complement the superior performance of PACCAR MX engines and PACCAR axles. “PACCAR’s transmission reduces vehicle weight by up to 105 lbs., enhances low-speed maneuverability through excellent gear ratio coverage, and contributes to increased customer uptime with its industry-leading 750,000 mile oil change interval,” noted Landon Sproull, PACCAR vice president.

DAF Launches New DAF XF and CF Vocational Trucks and New DAF LF Vehicles

DAF introduced 11 new two-, three- and four-axle DAF XF and CF vocational truck configurations in the third quarter. The new trucks feature enhanced PACCAR MX-13 and MX-11 engines which can deliver up to seven percent greater fuel efficiency. Customers can carry up to 220 lbs. of additional payload due to lighter-weight powertrain components and exhaust systems. The vocational trucks’ chassis have integrated attachment modules to facilitate body installation. An innovative electro-hydraulic steered rear axle is available to maximize maneuverability.

DAF also launched new DAF LF vehicles. The new DAF LF includes an optimized powertrain which enhances fuel efficiency by up to six percent. Powertrain options include enhanced PACCAR PX-4, PX-5 and PX-7 engines. A new chassis design enables more efficient body installation. DAF offers the DAF Connect fleet management system on the new LF truck, giving customers real-time information on the performance of vehicles and drivers.

“The new DAF XF, CF and LF trucks deliver outstanding operating efficiency and can be configured by our customers for a myriad of vocational applications,” said Richard Zink, DAF director of marketing and sales.

Kenworth Launches SuperTruck II Program

Kenworth will collaborate with the PACCAR Technical Center and DAF to launch its U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SuperTruck II program. The goal of the program is to increase Class 8 vehicle fuel efficiency supporting the achievement of greenhouse gas emissions requirements in 2021, 2024 and 2027. The five-year project will utilize the Kenworth T680 with a 76-inch sleeper and the fuel-efficient PACCAR MX-13 engine. Kenworth’s partners include Eaton, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Mississippi State University, and AVL. Mike Dozier, PACCAR vice president and Kenworth general manager commented, “This is an exciting project that will produce excellent benefits for PACCAR customers and the environment by delivering greater fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.”

Peterbilt and Cummins announced their partnership in the DOE SuperTruck II program in 2016. Peterbilt and Cummins also partnered in the original SuperTruck program, which culminated in 2013 with the production of the Peterbilt Model 579 SuperTruck. Many of the technologies developed in the original SuperTruck program are available in the fuel-efficient Peterbilt Model 579 EPIQ.

DAF to Participate in U.K. Truck Platooning Trial

DAF will participate in a two-year truck platooning trial in the United Kingdom, beginning in the first quarter of 2018. The trial is organized by the United Kingdom Department for Transport to demonstrate that wirelessly-linked truck combinations, or platoons, can deliver improved efficiency to the transportation industry.

Platooning enables trucks to drive in close formation, leading to lower fuel consumption, reduced CO2 emissions and improved traffic flow. Platooning utilizes advanced driver assistance systems that contribute to increased road safety. “The trials will enrich our understanding and knowledge of how platooning can improve transport efficiency,” said Ron Borsboom, DAF chief engineer.

PACCAR Parts Achieves Record Quarterly Revenues and Pre-tax Profits

PACCAR Parts achieved record pre-tax profit of $152.9 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $138.3 million achieved in the third quarter of 2016.

PACCAR Parts achieved pre-tax profit of $457.0 million in the first nine months of 2017, compared to $406.3 million in the first nine months of 2016. PACCAR Parts’ nine-month revenues were $2.45 billion, compared to $2.24 billion for the same period last year.

PACCAR Parts’ expanding TRP store network provides high-quality aftermarket products and services to owners of all makes of light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks, trailers, buses and engines.

PACCAR Parts’ TRP brand increases the aftermarket parts and service business available to our dealers and is supported by our global distribution network,” said David Danforth, PACCAR vice president and PACCAR Parts general manager. “Up to eighty percent of TRP store sales are to truck customers who have not previously purchased from DAF, Peterbilt and Kenworth dealers.”

Capital Investment and Research and Development

PACCAR’s excellent long-term profits, strong balance sheet and intense focus on quality have enabled the company to invest $6.2 billion in new and expanded facilities, innovative products and new technologies during the past decade. Capital investments of $400-$450 million and research and development expenses of $260-$270 million in 2017 are delivering new vehicles and technologies, enhanced manufacturing and parts distribution facilities and innovative aftermarket support programs.

Capital investments are projected to be $425-$475 million, and research and development expenses are estimated to be $270-$300 million in 2018. “The company is investing for future growth in PACCAR integrated powertrain components, enhanced aerodynamic truck designs, advanced driver assistance and truck connectivity technologies, and expanded manufacturing and parts distribution facilities,” said Harrie Schippers, PACCAR executive vice president and chief financial officer.

DAF Brasil Honored as Truck Brand of the Year

Fenabrave, the Brasilian national dealer association, honored DAF Brasil in August with the “Truck Brand of the Year” award for the second consecutive year. Fenabrave’s members include dealers of all truck manufacturers competing in the Brasil market. “We are proud to earn this honor again from Fenabrave.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This earnings release includes “adjusted net income (non-GAAP)” and “adjusted net income per diluted share (non-GAAP)”, which are financial measures that are not in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), since they exclude the non-recurring European Commission charge in 2016. These measures differ from the most directly comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

Management utilizes these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company’s performance and believes these measures allow investors and management to evaluate operating trends by excluding a significant non-recurring charge that is not representative of underlying operating trends.
Reconciliations from the most directly comparable GAAP measures of adjusted net income (non-GAAP) and adjusted net income per diluted share (non-GAAP) are as follows:
Nine Months Ended
(in millions) September 30, 2016
Net Income $ 232.9
Non-recurring European Commission Charge 833.0
Adjusted Net Income (Non-GAAP) $ 1,065.9
Per Diluted Share:
Net Income $ .66
Non-recurring European Commission Charge 2.37
Adjusted Net Income (Non-GAAP) $ 3.03
