“PACCAR has generated excellent shareholder returns and annual net income due to its industry leading premium-quality global products, strong growth of aftermarket parts and services, innovative use of technology, including e-commerce, and continued expansion of its financial services,” shared Mark Pigott, executive chairman.
PACCAR has delivered annual dividends, including regular quarterly and extra cash dividends, totaling approximately 50% of net income for many decades. PACCAR’s average annual return to stockholders has outperformed the S&P 500 index in the past five-, fifteen- and twenty-year periods.
“PACCAR implemented stringent safety guidelines in all of its facilities, earlier this year, to ensure the health and safety of our employees. I am proud of our employees who have delivered another year of excellent performance to our shareholders,” said Preston Feight, PACCAR chief executive officer. “PACCAR’s profits and strong cash flow have enabled the company to invest in new and expanded manufacturing and distribution facilities, environmental leadership, and new technologies such as autonomous driving, zero emissions powertrains and connected vehicles. The truck markets in North and South America and Europe have rebounded strongly this year and it appears that 2021 should be another good year.”
