Management Discussion
  • Consolidated net sales for the year ended December 31, 2019 were $2,753 million, a decrease of $55 million from 2018. In 2019, the Company experienced favorable price and mix ($72 million), offset by lower unit volume ($112 million) and unfavorable foreign currency impact ($15 million). The negative impact to net sales from lower unit volume was caused by a 3.8 percent unit volume decline in Americas Tire, coupled with a 14.4 percent decline in International Tire Operations, compared to 2018.
  • The Company recorded operating profit of $174 million in 2019, compared to operating profit of $165 million in 2018. The Company's 2019 operating profit included $64 million of favorable raw material costs, excluding the antidumping and countervailing TBR duties and Section 301 duties ("new tariffs") described below, and $52 million of favorable price and mix, while the 2018 results included a goodwill impairment charge of $34 million in the Company's International Tires Operations segment. This favorability was partially offset by $32 million of new tariffs net of recovered duties ("duty drawbacks") on imports into the U.S. from China, as well as lower unit volume of $27 million, higher manufacturing costs of $26 million, higher product liability expense of $23 million and additional selling, general and administrative costs of $6 million. In 2019, the Company also incurred $9 million of restructuring costs related to the decision to cease light vehicle tire production at the Melksham, U.K. facility. Other costs increased $18 million in 2019, including higher distribution costs and the nonrecurrence of $6 million of insurance recoveries net of direct costs recorded in 2018.
  • On February 15, 2019, antidumping and countervailing duties of 42.16 percent were imposed on the Company's TBR tire imports into the U.S. from the PRC. The Company incurred duties of $34 million for the year ended December 31, 2019 related to antidumping and countervailing duties on TBR tire imports. Additionally, pursuant to Section 301: China’s Acts, Policies, and Practices Related to Technology Transfer, Intellectual Property, and Innovation, passenger, light truck and TBR tires, raw materials and tire-manufacturing equipment from the PRC imported into the U.S. became subject to additional 10 percent duties effective September 24, 2018. These tariffs increased to 25 percent effective May 10, 2019. The Company has incurred duties of $19 million in 2019 related to these Section 301 tariffs. In 2019, the Company recovered $20 million of duties through the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 ("TFTEA"). The Modernized Drawback Final Rule under the TFTEA allows the Company to recover duties paid on goods imported into the US when such goods, or similar items, are subsequently exported.
