The message Cummins Inc. Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger will deliver to shareholders at today's annual meeting will be that the company had a solid financial year in 2013 in difficult economic conditions.
Cummins experienced no revenue growth, Linebarger said. But based on poor performance in some of the company's best international markets, Linebarger said he was satisfied with the results.
"I leave 2013 with a lot of pride in what we have achieved," Linebarger said. "Even though we would have liked to see earnings grow and we are frustrated by that, we feel like we had a good performance."
