Letters from leadership


“The strength of our full-year results across so many parts of the business was really encouraging. We had a solid net income, although lower than last year because of pension remeasurement. We achieved the second-best Company adjusted pre-tax profit, Auto operating margin and Auto operating cash flow. We also delivered an improved combined profit at our business units outside North America, and ended the year with a robust balance sheet.”

Bob Shanks, Executive Vice President & CFO
