Southfield, Michigan, July 22, 2013 . Federal-Mogul Corporation  (NASDAQ:FDML) 
today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30,  2013. 
Net Sales  for the  second quarter  were $1,772  million, an  increase of  $97 
million or 6%  (with negligible  exchange impact) on  a continuing  operations 
basis,  versus  the  second  quarter  of  2012.  Net  income  attributable  to 
Federal-Mogul in Q2 2013  was $56 million  or $0.57 per share,  up from a  net 
loss in Q2 2012 of  $(59) million or $(0.60) loss  per share. Net income  was 
comparable to Q2 2012 net income of $60 million when excluding the impact of a
non-cash impairment of $(119) million recorded in Q2 2012. Operational EBITDA
in Q2 2013 was $163  million or 9.2% of sales  versus $157 million or 9.3%  of 
sales in Q2 2012 on a continuing operations basis. The improved EBITDA result
is driven by higher volumes in  a more stable market environment coupled  with 
the  company's  margin  improvement   actions,  including  restructuring   and 
sustainable cost  reductions. The  company  generated free  cash flow  of  $73 
million in the quarter.

"Federal-Mogul's second quarter  results show the  benefit of cost  reductions 
and restructuring  actions  implemented  to eliminate  loss-making  units  and 
improve overall  operating leverage,"  said Rainer  Jueckstock,  Federal-Mogul 
co-CEO and CEO  Powertrain Segment.  "The cash  flow in  Q2 2013  is also  an 
important sign of improved working  capital stability. While the results  are 
encouraging, we are  continuing to  implement restructuring  actions to  raise 
capacity utilization and improve operating performance," he said.

Federal-Mogul Completes Rights Offering
Federal-Mogul, on  July  9,  2013, concluded  a  shareholder  rights  offering 
generating proceeds  of $500  million. The  offering was  conducted to  raise 
equity to further strengthen  the company's balance  sheet and facilitate  the 
company's debt  refinancing. The  company will  continue to  evaluate  market 
conditions and  other  relevant  factors  in  connection  with  the  potential 
refinancing of all or a portion of its outstanding indebtedness. 

Q2 Segment Revenue and  EBITDA (the following  sales growth rate  comparisons 
versus the prior year are in constant dollars, based on continuing  operations 
and exclude major items not recurring in the two periods)

Powertrain Segment (PT) Revenue and EBITDA
Federal-Mogul's Powertrain (PT)  segment had  revenue of $1.1  billion, a  $68 
million or 5% increase versus  Q2 2012. Revenue in  North America was up  6%, 
while light vehicle production  grew by 5% in  Q2 2013 and commercial  vehicle 
(CV) production declined  9% versus  Q2 2012.  In Europe,  where PT  derives 
approximately 50% of its revenue, Q2 2013 revenue was up 1% despite a  decline 
in light vehicle  production of 3%  and decline  in CV production  of 8%.  PT 
revenue in  ROW was  up  13%, including  an  increase in  Federal-Mogul  China 
revenue of  more than  30%  during the  quarter  while Chinese  light  vehicle 
production increased 12% when compared to Q2 2012.

Powertrain segment EBITDA was $106 million or 9.7% of sales, compared to  $102 
million in Q2 2012.  The PT business continues  to be negatively impacted  by 
slower commercial vehicle and industrial equipment production. The CV  market 
in the North America in Q2 2013 was  down 9% versus Q2 2012 and the CV  market 
in Europe was down 8% during the same periods of comparison. Product mix  due 
to the European market shift to a higher percentage of gasoline power vehicles
continued to negatively impact the segment in Q2 2013.

"We see some encouraging signs of European market stabilization and,  combined 
with our ongoing capacity rationalization, the company will be positioned  for 
increasingly favorable performance as volumes improve," said Jueckstock.

Vehicle Components Segment (VCS) Revenue and EBITDA
Federal-Mogul's VCS business had  revenue of $783 million  in Q2 2013, up  $34 
million or 5% versus Q2 2012. The  VCS revenue in North America was down  1% 
versus Q2 2012 due  to the planned cessation  of selected business  contracts. 
The VCS segment in Europe increased  revenue by 10% on a comparable  business 
basis, or  20%  when including  the  favorable  impact of  the  BERU  ignition 
distribution agreement.
"We had a very solid quarter in the EMEA region in Q2 2013 due principally  to 
market share  gains. We  are  leveraging our  well-known brands  and  rapidly 
expanding the portfolio to  drive improved sales in  this region," said  Kevin 
Freeland, Federal-Mogul co-CEO and CEO Vehicle Components Segment. "Our sales
are also  stronger due  to an  intense  focus on  improving order  fill  rates 
through better  inventory management  and improved  distribution systems,"  he 
added.

VCS segment EBITDA in Q2  2013 was $57 million or  7.3% of sales, up from  $55 
million in  Q2  2012. Several  restructuring  actions have  been  implemented 
within the VCS segment, including the closure or downsizing of seven sites  in 
the previous 18  months. These  actions will increasingly  impact results  as 
these restructuring programs are completed.

"Restructuring and  downsizing actions,  combined  with stronger  volumes  are 
improving  the  VCS  bottom  line.  We  are  implementing  several  important 
strategies to improve our presence  in developing markets, raise  distribution 
efficiency and  gain  greater premium  brand  awareness. These  actions  will 
further reinforce our capability to deliver profitable growth," said Freeland.
