WABCO Seeks Acquisitions

WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE:WBC) seeks acquisitions. "So right now the plan is to continue to use the cash from the business to buy back shares, return that to the shareholders, as well as keep our eye out for acquisition opportunities; and at that point we may look at adding on some additional leverage to help with that. So for right now, I feel very good about the capital allocation policy for the Company, that were going to return cash to shareholders in the most tax efficient manner and that will be through buybacks and will continue to keep an eye out for acquisitions. As you may know, we have a pretty high bar here, so finding something that meets our requirements may take us some time," said Prashanth Mahendra-Rajah, WABCO Holdings Inc., Chief Financial Officer. "However I have not lowered my standards myself. Meaning that, we have more opportunities but we are still screening very much. You know, I would say we should expect to acquire company at a slow pace, but maybe not as slow as what we have seen since 2007. But believe me, we are still very, very demanding," said Jacques Esculier, WABCO Holdings Inc. - Chief Executive Officer and Chairman.

WABCO Holdings Inc. Launches Modular Braking System Platform

WABCO Holdings Inc. has launched its modular braking system platform (mBSP) and already won major awards for this breakthrough technology from two global commercial vehicle manufacturers headquartered in Europe. WABCO's braking architecture now enables its customers to interchangeably equip their diverse global truck and bus platforms with anti-lock braking (ABS) or electronic braking (EBS) systems based on regional market or regulatory requirements worldwide. Building on decades of experience gained from pioneering advanced braking systems for the commercial vehicle industry, WABCO's next generation braking platform mBSP features the degree of standardization in the industry across both components and system software of its ABS and EBS systems. WABCO mBSP reduces the number of ABS components by 50% to the same amount of components as in EBS. By leveraging the advantages of WABCO's unique mBSP system, vehicle manufacturers can significantly reduce system development, installation and software testing time, accelerate homologation for their diverse brands and vehicle portfolios globally, and bring new trucks and buses to market faster. WABCO mBSP also accommodates the seamless integration of customer's own software and added system functionalities. With WABCO's modular braking system, ABS and EBS components use the same mounting interfaces and connections on the commercial vehicle platform. Therefore, WABCO enables global truck and bus makers to tailor their vehicle platforms to regional requirements by interchangeably equipping them with either ABS or EBS. In addition, WABCO's modular approach helps commercial vehicle manufacturers to develop a range from value-based to premium truck and bus models on the same vehicle platforms depending on market needs.
