Fourth-quarter revenue of $4.9 billion increased 19 percent from the same quarter in 2010 and set a new quarterly record for the company. Net income attributable to Cummins in the fourth quarter was $548 million ($2.86 a diluted share). Earnings before interest and taxes were $768 million for the fourth quarter.

Revenue for the full year was $18 billion, up 36 percent from 2010, with strong growth in most geographic regions, Cummins said.

Earnings before interest and taxes for the year, excluding special items, were $2.56 billion, or 14.2 percent of sales, compared with $1.66 billion, or 12.5 percent of sales, in 2010.

“Cummins had its best year ever in 2011 despite economic uncertainty in a number of regions. We continue to benefit from our leading position in a number of end markets and geographies,” chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger said in a statement. “Revenue in the United States grew 53 percent and international revenue grew 27 percent year-over-year. In fact, we experienced record full-year revenues in North America, Brazil, China, India and a number of other important markets.”
