Global Truck Market Update
"In 2013, DAF achieved a record market share of 16.2 percent in the above 16-tonne European market.  DAF is the market leader in the European tractor segment as fleets recognize DAF's quality leadership, low operating costs and excellent resale value," said Harrie Schippers, DAF president.  "Industry sales above 16-tonnes in Europe were 240,800 units in 2013.  It is estimated that industry truck sales in the above 16-tonne market in Europe in 2014 will be in a range of 200,000-230,000 vehicles."

"DAF and Kenworth registered 3,900 trucks in Russia in 2013, supported by a DAF/Kenworth dealer network of 38 sales and service locations," said Ron Bonsen, DAF Director of Sales.  PACCAR introduced DAF CF vehicles in Taiwan in 2006.  The product range was expanded with the launch of the DAF LF for urban distribution in late 2012.  "DAF is the largest European truck manufacturer in the above 16-tonne segment in Taiwan with a 16.0 percent market share," noted Bonsen.

"Class 8 industry retail truck sales in the U.S. and Canada were 212,000 units in 2013," said Dan Sobic, PACCAR executive vice president.  "Truck demand is being driven primarily by the ongoing replacement of the aging truck population and improving housing and automotive sectors.  In 2013, PACCAR achieved a Class 8 retail market share in the U.S. and Canada of 28.0 percent as customers benefited from Kenworth and Peterbilt vehicles' exceptional styling, superior fuel efficiency and outstanding vehicle performance.  Estimates for U.S. and Canada Class 8 truck industry retail sales in 2014 are in the range of 210,000-240,000 units, driven by vehicle replacement and some expansion of industry fleet capacity, reflecting anticipated economic growth," added Sobic.

South American Growth
PACCAR completed construction of its new 300,000-square-foot DAF assembly facility in Ponta Grossa, Brasil, in October 2013.  "Brasil is a major truck market with industry sales above six tonnes in 2013 of 149,000 units.  During the fourth quarter of 2013, DAF began truck production in Brasil," said Marco Davila, DAF Brasil president.  "During 2014, DAF plans to steadily increase truck production and has a long-term market share goal of 20 percent.  The independent DAF dealer service network consisted of 20 locations in 2013 and will expand to 40 Brazilian locations in 2014," added Davila.  "It is estimated that Brasil industry truck sales in the above 6-tonnes segment will be 150,000 units in 2014."

PACCAR Parts Achieves Record Annual Revenues
"PACCAR's aftermarket parts business achieved record annual revenues in 2013," said Bob Christensen, chief financial officer and PACCAR executive vice president.  "The ongoing growth in aftermarket part sales has been driven by PACCAR's investment in distribution, technology and products, including the growth of PACCAR Parts' global TRP brand targeted at all truck makes and models, trailers and buses," added Christensen.

Capital Investments Drive Product Development and Operating Efficiency
PACCAR's excellent long-term profits, strong balance sheet, and intense focus on quality, technology and productivity have enabled the company to invest $5.7 billion in capital projects, innovative products and new technologies during the past decade.  "In 2013, capital of $409.5 million and R&D expenses of $251.4 million were invested in new products and increased manufacturing capacity," said George West, PACCAR vice president.  "In 2014, capital expenditures of $350-$400 million are targeted for enhanced powertrain development and increased operating efficiency of our assembly facilities.  Research and development expenses are estimated at $225-$275 million in 2014 as Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF invest in industry-leading products and services to enable our customers to enhance the performance of their businesses."

PACCAR Enhances Environmental Leadership

PACCAR Financial Services (PFS) has a portfolio of over 161,000 trucks and trailers, with total assets of $11.63 billion.  PacLease, a major full-service truck leasing company in North America and Europe, with a fleet of over 35,000 vehicles, is included in this segment.  "During the fourth quarter and full year of 2013, PFS profit increased due to growth in its portfolio," said Bob Bengston, PACCAR senior vice president.

PFS fourth quarter pretax income was a record $90.4 million compared to the $78.7 million earned in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Fourth quarter revenues were $299.5 million compared to $297.8 million in the same quarter of 2012.  For the full year, revenues were $1.17 billion compared to $1.10 billion in 2012, and pretax income was a record $340.2 million in 2013, an increase of 11 percent compared to $307.8 million a year ago.

"PACCAR's excellent balance sheet, complemented by its A+/A1 credit ratings, enables PFS to offer competitive retail financing to Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF dealers and customers in 23 countries on four continents," said Todd Hubbard, PACCAR Financial Corp. president.  "A growing asset base and excellent portfolio performance are generating improved earnings."
