today reported fourth quarter 2012 U.S. GAAP earnings of $1.03 per diluted

       oExcluding the $(0.10) per diluted share impact of retirement related
         obligations, and $(0.03) per diluted share related to net tax
         adjustments, net earnings were $1.16 per diluted share, down 3% from
         fourth quarter 2011.

  oOperating income of $171 million, or 9.9% of net sales.

       oExcluding the $17 million pretax impact of retirement related
         obligations, operating income was $188 million, or 10.9% of net
         sales.

Comment and Outlook: "Market conditions were challenging in the fourth
quarter," said James Verrier, President and CEO of BorgWarner. "Global light
vehicle production in the fourth quarter was up approximately 1% from a year
ago, but light vehicle production in Europe, a market which comprises nearly
half of our sales, was down approximately 11%. Our sales were flat during the
same period, excluding the impact of foreign currencies and 2011 and 2012
dispositions. Despite this challenging sales environment, the continued focus
on execution at our operations resulted in a solid operating income margin of
10.9% in the fourth quarter, excluding non-comparable items."

"In 2012, our sales, earnings and operating income margin set all-time records
on a comparable basis. In 2013, we expect reported sales growth of 2% to 6%
compared with 2012, or sales growth of 3% to 7% excluding the impact of 2012
dispositions, earnings of $5.15 to $5.45 per diluted share and an operating
income margin of 11.5% or better. We anticipate that this will continue our
record financial pace despite difficult market conditions in Europe," said
Verrier.

Financial Results: Net sales were $1,719 million in fourth quarter 2012, down
3% from $1,774 million in fourth quarter 2011. Net earnings in the quarter
were $121 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, compared with $122 million, or
$1.00 per diluted share, in fourth quarter 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 net
earnings included net non-comparable items of $(0.13) per diluted share.
Fourth quarter 2011 net earnings included non-comparable items of $(0.19) per
diluted share. These items are listed in a table below as reconciliations of
non-U.S. GAAP measures, which are provided by the company for comparison with
other results, and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. The impact
of foreign currencies, primarily the Euro, decreased net sales by
approximately $22 million, and decreased net earnings by approximately $0.02
per diluted share, in fourth quarter 2012 compared with fourth quarter 2011.

Full year 2012 net sales were $7,183 million, up 1% compared with $7,115
million in 2011. Full year 2012 net earnings were $501 million, or $4.17 per
diluted share, compared with $550 million, or $4.45 per diluted share, in
2011. Full year 2012 net earnings included net non-comparable items of $(0.80)
per diluted share. Full year 2011 net earnings included non-comparable items
which, when netted, had no impact on reported earnings per diluted share.
These items are listed in a table below as reconciliations of non-U.S. GAAP
measures, which are provided by the company for comparison with other results,
and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. The impact of foreign
currencies, primarily the Euro, decreased net sales by approximately $325
million, and decreased net earnings by approximately $0.22 per diluted share,
in 2012 compared with 2011.

The following table reconciles the company's non-U.S. GAAP measures included

Net cash provided by operating activities was $879 million in 2012 compared
with $708 million in 2011. Investments in capital expenditures, including
tooling outlays, totaled $407 million in 2012, compared with $394 million in
2011. Balance sheet debt decreased by $262 million and cash increased by $356
million compared with the end of 2011. The $618 million decrease in balance
sheet debt (net of cash) was primarily due to net cash provided by operating
activities and the company's settlement of its convertible senior notes, which
was partially offset by share repurchases. The ratio of balance sheet debt
(net of cash) to capital was 10.0% at the end of 2012 compared with 28.3% at
the end of 2011.

Engine Group Results: Engine segment net sales were $1,167 million in fourth
quarter 2012 compared with $1,245 million in fourth quarter 2011. Excluding
the negative impact of foreign currencies and 2011 and 2012 dispositions, net
sales were down 2% from the prior year's quarter. Higher sales of light
vehicle turbochargers in China and variable cam timing devices in Japan were
offset by volume declines across the Group's product portfolio in Europe
related to the economic slowdown in the region. Adjusted earnings before
interest, income taxes and non-controlling interest ("Adjusted EBIT") were
$182 million in fourth quarter 2012, down 10% from $203 million in fourth
quarter 2011.

Drivetrain Group Results: Drivetrain segment net sales were $559 million in
fourth quarter 2012 compared with $534 million in fourth quarter 2011.
Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies, net sales were up 5% from
the prior year's quarter. Strong all-wheel drive system sales in North
America and India combined with higher sales of traditional transmission
components in Korea offset declines across the Group's product portfolio in
Europe related to the economic slowdown in the region. Adjusted EBIT was $49
million in fourth quarter 2012, up 5% from $47 million in fourth quarter 2011.

Recent Highlights:

The BorgWarner Board of Directors announced the appointment of James R.
Verrier, 50, to president and chief executive officer effective January 1,
2013, at which time he also joined the Board of Directors. Former chief
executive officer, Timothy M. Manganello, 62, will continue as executive

  oIn November, the company reported an expected backlog of $2.3 billion of

    and emissions products, is expected to continue to drive strong growth.

  oFor the first time, BorgWarner supplies its innovative three-stage
    turbocharging technology for BMW's M Performance diesel engine, the most
    powerful six-cylinder in-line diesel engine in the world. Exclusively
    developed for BMW M Performance automobiles, the engine powers the M550d
    xDrive Sedan and Touring, X5 M50d Touring, and X6 M50d models.

  oPropelled by the rapidly growing Chinese automotive market, BorgWarner
    opened another production plant at its campus in Ningbo, China, on

    produce and test Morse TEC variable cam timing (VCT) technologies and
    engine timing systems to support the production and launch of over 50
    programs with more than 20 different customers. The opening ceremony also
    celebrated the inauguration of BorgWarner's world-class Ningbo Engineering
    Center which provides research and development, applications engineering
