Financial report summary

  • If we do not successfully implement our strategic initiatives, our operating results, financial condition and liquidity may be materially adversely affected.
  • We face significant global competition and our market share could decline.
  • Raw material and energy costs may materially adversely affect our operating results and financial condition.
  • If we fail to extend or renegotiate significant collective bargaining contracts with our labor unions as they expire from time to time, or if our unionized employees were to engage in a strike or other work stoppage or interruption, our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity could be materially adversely affected.
  • We could be negatively impacted by the imposition of tariffs on imported tires and other goods.
  • Our international operations have certain risks that may materially adversely affect our operating results, financial condition and liquidity.
  • We have foreign currency translation and transaction risks that may materially adversely affect our operating results, financial condition and liquidity.
  • Our long term ability to meet our obligations, to repay maturing indebtedness or to implement strategic initiatives may be dependent on our ability to access capital markets in the future and to improve our operating results.
  • Financial difficulties, work stoppages, supply disruptions or economic conditions affecting our major customers, dealers or suppliers could harm our business.
  • Our capital expenditures may not be adequate to maintain our competitive position and may not be implemented in a timely or cost-effective manner.
  • We have a substantial amount of debt, which could restrict our growth, place us at a competitive disadvantage or otherwise materially adversely affect our financial health.
  • Any failure to be in compliance with any material provision or covenant of our debt instruments, or a material reduction in the borrowing base under our revolving credit facility, could have a material adverse effect on our liquidity and operations.
  • Our variable rate indebtedness subjects us to interest rate risk, which could cause our debt service obligations to increase significantly.
  • We have substantial fixed costs and, as a result, our operating income fluctuates disproportionately with changes in our net sales.
  • We may incur significant costs in connection with our contingent liabilities and tax matters.
  • We are subject to extensive government regulations that may materially adversely affect our operating results.
  • We may be adversely affected by any disruption in, or failure of, our information technology systems.
  • If we are unable to attract and retain key personnel our business could be materially adversely affected.
  • We may be impacted by economic and supply disruptions associated with events beyond our control, such as war, acts of terror, political unrest, public health concerns, labor disputes or natural disasters.
Management Discussion
  • In 2019, challenging macro-economic industry conditions persisted throughout much of the year, including higher raw material costs, foreign currency headwinds due to a strong U.S. dollar, lower OE industry volumes, softening demand in Europe, weak market conditions in China, and economic volatility in Latin America, particularly in Brazil. These headwinds were partially offset by continued strength in U.S. consumer replacement sales.
  • Our 2019 results reflect a 2.4% decrease in tire unit shipments compared to 2018. In 2019, we realized approximately $199 million of cost savings, including raw material cost saving measures of approximately $93 million, which exceeded the impact of general inflation. Our raw material costs, including cost saving measures, increased by approximately 4% in 2019 compared to 2018.
  • Net sales were $14,745 million in 2019, compared to $15,475 million in 2018. Net sales decreased in 2019 primarily due to unfavorable foreign currency translation, primarily in EMEA, lower volume, primarily in EMEA, and lower sales in other tire-related businesses, primarily due to a decrease in third-party sales of chemical products in Americas, partially offset by improvements in price and product mix, primarily in EMEA and Americas.
