22.01.2002

TECUMSEH, Mich., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Tecumseh Products Company (Nasdaq: TECUA, TECUB) announced today its 2001 fourth quarter and full year consolidated results as summarized in the following Consolidated Condensed Statements of Income.

Consolidated net income for the fourth quarter of 2001 amounted to

$6.1 million, or $0.33 per share, compared to net income of $14.8 million, or

$0.79 per share in the fourth quarter of 2000. Included in 2001's fourth

quarter results are nonrecurring charges of $6.1 million ($3.9 million or

$0.21 per share net of taxes) relating to a relocation of certain component

part and engine manufacturing capabilities from domestic plants to the Czech

Republic facilities. Consolidated net sales in the fourth quarter of 2001

decreased to $299.1 million from $358.5 million in 2000.

Full year 2001 net income amounted to $42.8 million, or $2.30 per share,

on sales of $1,398.9 million, compared to net income of $66.1 million, or

$3.44 share, on sales of $1,649.9 million in 2000. Nonrecurring charges

related to the cost of an early retirement incentive program and to the Engine

& Power Train Group charges referred to above had the effect of reducing 2001

earnings by $22.8 million net of tax, or $1.23 per share.

The lower 2001 results reflected continued weakness in sales and earnings

in the Company's two major business segments, Compressor Products and Engine &

Power Train Products.

Pump Business

Pump Business sales in the fourth quarter of 2001 declined to

$19.2 million from $21.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2000. Sales for the

year ended December 31, 2001 decreased to $113.4 million compared to

$117.3 million in 2000. Operating income in the fourth quarter of 2001

amounted to $0.9 million, compared to $2.5 million in the same period of 2000.

Full year operating income amounted to $11.6 million in 2001 compared to

$14.7 million in 2000. Decreased retail sales activity in the water gardening

market resulting from a soft economy combined with slight decreases in sales

for industrial and commercial applications were the primary reasons for the decline in sales and profits.
