Tenneco provides new system

Tenneco (TEN) announced it would supply the emission control system on the all-new 2016 Lexus RX luxury crossover platform, which is currently in production. It is also supplying both hot- and cold-end components, including the front pipe assembly, Y-pipe, underbody converter, muffler, and tailpipe assemblies.

The company’s products help customers to meet stringent emissions control regulations with after-treatment technologies for gasoline and diesel engines. These technologies include manifolds, catalytic converters, selective catalytic reduction, advanced mixing technologies, particulate filters, and complete hot- and cold-end exhaust systems.

Guidance for fiscal 2016

Tenneco expects fiscal 2016 revenue growth of 5% at current industry growth forecasts and excluding the impact of currency. This revenue growth would be driven by following:

  • incremental Clean Air revenue from 2015 light vehicle launches and new launches in 2016
  • incremental revenue from Monroe Intelligent Suspension programs with four new launches in 2016 and the continued ramp-up on programs launched in 2015
  • commercial truck and off-highway emissions regulations with additional content on off-highway Tier 4f and Stage 4 programs in North America and Europe
  • incremental revenue from 2015 launches of a North America medium-duty commercial truck and an off-highway program in Japan
  • increasing market share with commercial truck customers in China
  • initial launches with commercial truck customers in India to comply with BS IV regulations

The revenue estimates include the following assumptions:

  • further weakening in off-highway industry volumes
  • continued weak commercial truck production in China and Brazil
  • China commercial truck after-treatment installation rates similar to 2015

For fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2018, Tenneco expects revenue growth to accelerate and outpace industry production by 3%–5% each year as new light vehicle emissions regulations will begin in North America and Europe.

Tenneco’s PE (price-to-earnings) and PBV (price-to-book value) ratios were 10.9x and 4.8x, respectively, as of February 8, 2016.
