Quarterly report pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d)


6 Months Ended
Jun. 26, 2011





In January 2011, we reached an agreement to sell certain assets and liabilities of our exhaust business which manufactures exhaust products and select components for emission systems for a variety of applications not core to our other product offerings.  The transaction closed in the second quarter of 2011.  This business was historically included in our Components segment.  The sales price was $123 million.  We recognized a pre-tax gain on the sale of $68 million, which included an allocation of goodwill of $19 million.  The transaction has a working capital adjustment mechanism that will be determined in the third quarter.  We do not expect a significant change to the measurement of the gain.  The gain has been excluded from segment results as it was not considered by management in its evaluation of operating results for the three and six months ended June 26, 2011.


Sales for this business were $171 million, $126 million and $169 million in 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.  Income before income taxes for this business was approximately $22 million, $11 million and $19 million in 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.


We signed a non-binding letter of intent to sell certain assets and liabilities of our light-duty filtration business which manufactures light-duty automotive and industrial filtration solutions.  The transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2011.  The sales price is expected to be approximately $90 million to $95 million, subject to a final financial statement review.  There are no earnouts or other contingencies associated with the sales price.  We expect to recognize a pre-tax gain on the sale of approximately $45 million to $50 million, which includes an allocation of goodwill of approximately $11 million.


Sales for this business were $74 million, $54 million and $75 million in 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.  Income before income taxes for this business was approximately $9 million, $2 million and $9 million in 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.


The assets and liabilities associated with these businesses have not been reclassified and separately presented in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as they are immaterial.  We will enter into supply and other agreements with the operations that will represent ongoing involvement and as such, the results of these operations will not be presented as discontinued operations.




On January 4, 2010, we acquired the remaining 70 percent interest in Cummins Western Canada (CWC) from our former principal for consideration of approximately $71 million.  We formed a new partnership with a new distributor principal where we own 80 percent of CWC and the new distributor principal owns 20 percent.  The acquisition was effective on January 1, 2010.  The $71 million of consideration consisted of:


In millions




Borrowings under credit revolver





Capital contributed by Cummins Inc.




Capital contributed by new principal, as described below




Funded from first quarter operations




Total consideration






The purchase price was approximately $97 million as presented below.  The intangible assets are primarily customer related and are being amortized over periods ranging from one to three years.  The acquisition of CWC was accounted for as a business combination, with the results of the acquired entity and the goodwill included in the Distribution operating segment as of the acquisition date.  Distribution segment results also include a $12 million gain for the three months ended March 28, 2010, as we were required to re-measure our pre-existing 30 percent ownership interest in CWC to fair value in accordance with GAAP.  Net sales for CWC were $272 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010, which was approximately two percent of Cummins Inc. consolidated sales.


The purchase price was allocated as follows:


In millions




Accounts receivable









Fixed assets




Intangible assets








Other assets




Current liabilities




Total purchase price





Fair value of pre-existing 30 percent interest




Consideration given






We provided a loan to our partner of approximately $8 million to fund the purchase of his 20 percent interest.  The purchase transaction resulted in $8 million of noncontrolling interest (representing our partner’s 20 percent interest) which was completely offset by the $8 million receivable from our partner, reducing the noncontrolling interest impact to zero as of the acquisition date.  The interest-bearing loan is expected to be repaid over a period of 3-5 years.  The partner also has periodic options to purchase an additional 10 to 15 percent interest in CWC up to a maximum of an additional 30 percent (total ownership not to exceed 50 percent).
