Third quarter revenues of $5.8 billion decreased 3 percent from the same quarter in 2018.
Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) in the third quarter were $958 million, or 16.6 percent of sales, compared to $983 million or 16.5 percent of sales a year ago.
Net income attributable to Cummins in the third quarter was $622 million ($3.97 per diluted share), compared to net income of $692 million ($4.28 per diluted share) last year.
Cummins now expects 2019 revenue to decline 2 percent compared to prior guidance of flat. The reduction in our revenue forecast is driven by lower truck production in North America, India, Brazil, and Europe, as well as lower demand in off-highway markets, including North America construction and global mining markets.
The company now expects EBITDA to be in the range of 15.9 to 16.3 percent of sales. This projection for EBITDA is lower than the prior guidance of 16.25 to 16.75 percent, due to the impact of lower volumes and the acquisition of Hydrogenics.
