Record Quarterly Sales Produce 49% Increase in Earnings Per Share

DULUTH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 31, 2007--AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AG), a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, reported net income of $0.67 per share for the second quarter of 2007. Adjusted net income, which excludes restructuring and other infrequent expenses, was also $0.67 per share for the second quarter of 2007. These results compare to reported and adjusted net income of $0.45 per share for the second quarter of 2006. Net sales for the second quarter of 2007 were $1.7 billion, an increase of approximately 18% compared to the same period in 2006.

For the first six months of 2007, reported and adjusted net income were $0.93 per share compared to $0.64 per share for the same period in 2006. Net sales for the first six months of 2007 increased approximately 16% to $3.0 billion.

"Market conditions in most of the major agricultural markets were strong and our brands performed very well across the globe during the second quarter," stated Martin Richenhagen, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our South American segment set records for both quarterly sales and operating income. Sales grew approximately 60% from the second quarter of 2006 on the strength of the Brazilian market recovery. In the Europe/Africa/Middle East region, quarterly sales exceeded $1.0 billion and operating margins reached over 10%. Strong performance from our Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra brands in Europe generated sales growth, excluding currency translation, of approximately 13% compared to the second quarter of 2006. Supply chain performance improved throughout the second quarter at our Fendt factory, which contributed to the second quarter sales growth at Fendt."

"Significant progress was made on our strategic initiatives in the first half of 2007," Mr. Richenhagen continued. "We continued to reduce the Company's investment in working capital during the second quarter. This success, combined with our improved earnings, enabled us to reduce our long-term debt by approximately $100 million compared to the end of the first quarter. Re-energizing our harvesting business remains another important focus. During June, we announced that, subject to the approval of the competition authorities, we have agreed to acquire 50% of Laverda S.p.A, a European harvester manufacturer. This investment is expected to reinforce our market position, improve our product offering, and supply a foundation for long-term product development. In addition, we continue to invest in research and development, plant improvements, IT systems, new markets and distribution networks."

Second Quarter and Year-to-Date Results

For the second quarter of 2007, net sales increased by approximately 18.0% to $1,711.4 million compared to $1,450.5 million for the second quarter of 2006. AGCO reported net income of $63.8 million, or $0.67 per share, for the second quarter of 2007 compared to reported net income of $40.9 million, or $0.45 per share, for the second quarter of 2006. Adjusted net income, excluding restructuring and other infrequent expenses, was $64.0 million, or $0.67 per share, for the second quarter of 2007 compared to $40.9 million, or $0.45 per share, for the second quarter of 2006.

AGCO reported net sales of $3,044.0 million for the first six months of 2007, an increase of approximately 16.2% as compared to $2,620.3 million in net sales for the first six months of 2006. For the first six months of 2007, AGCO reported net income of $88.3 million, or $0.93 per share. For the first six months of 2006, AGCO reported net income of $58.2 million, or $0.64 per share. Adjusted net income, excluding restructuring and other infrequent expenses, was $88.5 million, or $0.93 per share, for the first six months of 2007 compared to $58.3 million, or $0.64 per share, for the first six months of 2006.

Net sales increased approximately 11.2% and 9.5%, respectively, in the second quarter and first six months of 2007 compared to the same periods in 2006, excluding the impact of currency translation of $98.3 million and $173.9 million, respectively. AGCO's South American segment contributed the strongest growth during the first six months of 2007. Improving industry demand in Brazil, the region's largest market, was the key to the sales growth. AGCO's Europe/Africa/Middle East (EAME) segment sales also increased during the first half of 2007 due to strong growth in Eastern Europe, France and Finland.

Income from operations for the second quarter and first six months of 2007 increased approximately $28.0 million and $29.7 million, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2006, resulting from the increase in net sales and cost control initiatives. Second quarter 2007 operating margins improved to 6.5% compared to 5.7% for the second quarter of 2006. Unit production of tractors and combines for the second quarter of 2007 was approximately 18% above comparable 2006 levels.

AGCO's EAME region reported an increase in income from operations of approximately $25.9 million in the second quarter of 2007 compared to the second quarter of 2006. The increase was primarily due to improved sales, currency translation and cost reduction initiatives. EAME's second quarter operating margin expanded to 10.5%, an increase of approximately 1.0% compared to the second quarter of 2006. For the first six months of 2007, income from operations increased approximately $21.7 million compared to the same period in 2006.

Income from operations for the South American region increased approximately $21.5 million in the second quarter of 2007 when compared to the same period in 2006. For the first six months of 2007, income from operations increased approximately $30.0 million compared to 2006. Improved market conditions in Brazil and Argentina resulted in an increase in AGCO's net sales in South America, excluding currency impact, of approximately 48% and 40%, respectively, for the second quarter and first six months of 2007. Higher sales volumes combined with ongoing process improvements pushed operating margins to 11.2% for the first six months of 2007, an increase of approximately 4.5% compared to the same period in 2006.

Results in AGCO's North American segment in the first half of 2007 were negatively impacted by currency impacts on products sourced from Brazil and Europe as well as higher engineering expenses. Income from operations decreased approximately $17.1 million for the second quarter and approximately $19.0 million for the first six months of 2007 compared to the same periods in 2006.

Income from operations in the Asia/Pacific region decreased approximately $1.8 million in the second quarter and approximately $2.4 million for the first six months of 2007 compared to 2006. Despite recent rains in Australia, the extended drought continues to impact industry demand for combines and high horsepower tractors.

Regional Market Results

North America - Industry unit retail sales of tractors over 40 horsepower increased compared to the prior year, while industry sales of tractors under 40 horsepower declined during the first six months of 2007. Industry unit retail sales of tractors for the first six months of 2007 increased approximately 1% over the comparable prior year period. Industry unit retail sales of combines for the first six months of 2007 increased approximately 6% from the prior year period. AGCO's unit retail sales of tractors and combines were lower in the first six months of 2007, while sales of hay equipment were up significantly compared to 2006.

Europe - Industry unit retail sales of tractors for the first six months of 2007 increased approximately 3% compared to the prior year period. Retail demand improved in Central and Eastern Europe, the United Kingdom, Scandinavia and France, but declined in Germany, Italy and Spain. AGCO's unit retail sales of tractors for the first six months of 2007 were higher when compared to the prior year period.

South America - Industry unit retail sales of tractors increased approximately 35% and industry unit retail sales of combines increased approximately 44% for the first six months of 2007 compared to the prior year period. Unit retail sales of tractors and combines in the major market of Brazil increased approximately 43% and 98%, respectively, during the first six months of 2007 compared to 2006. AGCO's South American unit retail sales of tractors and combines also increased in the first six months of 2007 compared to 2006.

Rest of World Markets - Outside of North America, Europe and South America, AGCO's net sales for the first six months of 2007 were relatively flat compared to 2006 due to higher sales in Africa and Asia, offset by lower sales in Australia and the Middle East.

"Global demand for farm equipment has strengthened from last year, and our industry is benefiting from growing bio-fuel production that is consuming crop inventories and providing support for commodity prices," stated Mr. Richenhagen. "In particular, industry sales of farm equipment in Central and Eastern Europe are strong. New EU entrant countries in Central Europe are benefiting from EU Common Agricultural Policy payments and, in Russia, strong domestic demand for feed and higher commodity prices have stimulated industry sales. Brazil's growing ethanol production is driving demand for farm equipment in their sugar cane sector and increased soybean prices are improving demand from row crop farmers."

Outlook

2007 farm equipment demand is forecasted to be up from 2006 levels in most of the world's major agricultural markets. Retail farm equipment sales in Western Europe are expected to be relatively flat while growth is projected in Central and Eastern Europe. In South America, recovery of the farming sector in Brazil is expected to result in a strong increase in demand for farm equipment in 2007. Higher cash receipts by North American farmers partially offset by higher input costs are expected to result in growth in industry demand in the high horsepower tractor and combine segments.

Full year net sales are expected to grow in the 12% to 14% range compared to 2006, driven primarily by stronger market conditions in South America, continued growth in Europe and currency impacts. For the full year, AGCO is forecasting earnings per share to range from $1.55 to $1.60. Results in the second half of the year will include spending on strategic investments including increased engineering expenses, plant restructurings, system initiatives, new market development and distribution expenditures. Earnings growth and focus on working capital reduction for the remainder of the year are expected to produce strong cash flow.

AGCO will be hosting a conference call with respect to this earnings announcement at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, July 31, 2007. The Company will refer to slides on its conference call. Interested persons can access the conference call and slide presentation via AGCO's website at www.agcocorp.com on the "Investors/Media" page.

Safe Harbor Statement

Statements which are not historical facts, including the impact of the Laverda acquisition and projections of industry demand, net sales, earnings per shares, spending on strategic initiatives and cash flow, are forward-looking and subject to risks which could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the statements. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties. The following are among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in or implied by the forward-looking statements. Further information concerning these and other factors is included in AGCO's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006. AGCO disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements.

    --  Our financial results depend entirely upon the agricultural
        industry, and factors that adversely affect the agricultural
        industry generally will adversely affect us.

    --  Our success depends on the introduction of new products which
        require substantial expenditures.

    --  We depend on suppliers for components and parts for our
        products, and any failure by our suppliers to provide products
        as needed, or by us to promptly address supplier issues, will
        adversely impact our ability to timely and efficiently
        manufacture and sell our products.

    --  A majority of our sales and manufacturing takes place outside
        of the United States, and, as a result, we are exposed to
        risks related to foreign laws, taxes, economic conditions,
        labor supply and relations, political conditions and
        governmental policies. These risks may delay or reduce our
        realization of value from our international operations.

    --  Currency exchange rate and interest rate changes can adversely
        affect the profitability of our products.

    --  We are subject to extensive environmental laws and
        regulations, and our compliance with, or our failure to comply
        with, existing or future laws and regulations could delay
        production of our products or otherwise adversely affect our
        business.

    --  Our labor force is heavily unionized, and our contractual and
        legal obligations under collective bargaining agreements and
        labor laws subject us to the risks of work interruption or
        stoppage and could cause our costs to be higher.

    --  We have significant pension obligations with respect to our
        employees.

    --  We are subject to fluctuations in raw material prices and
        availability, which may cause delays in the production of our
        products or otherwise adversely affect our manufacturing
        costs.

    --  The agricultural equipment industry is highly seasonal, and
        seasonal fluctuations significantly impact our results of
        operations and cash flows.

    --  We face significant competition and, if we are unable to
        compete successfully against other agricultural equipment
        manufacturers, we would lose customers and our revenues and
        profitability would decline.

    --  We have a substantial amount of indebtedness, and, as a
        result, we are subject to certain restrictive covenants and
        payment obligations that may adversely affect our ability to
        operate and expand our business.

The Company sells wholesale accounts receivable on a revolving basis to commercial paper conduits either through a wholly-owned special purpose U.S. subsidiary under its United States and Canadian securitization facilities or a qualifying special purpose entity in the United Kingdom under its European securitization facility. Outstanding funding under these facilities totaled approximately $435.4 million at June 30, 2007 and $429.6 million at December 31, 2006. The funded balance has the effect of reducing accounts receivable and short-term liabilities by the same amount. Losses on sales of receivables primarily from securitization facilities included in other expense, net were $10.2 million and $7.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively, and $16.8 million and $13.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively.

7. SEGMENT REPORTING

The Company has four reportable segments: North America; South America; Europe/Africa/Middle East; and Asia/Pacific. Each regional segment distributes a full range of agricultural equipment and related replacement parts. The Company evaluates segment performance primarily based on income from operations. Sales for each regional segment are based on the location of the third-party customer. The Company's selling, general and administrative expenses, and engineering expenses are charged to each segment based on the region and division where the expenses are incurred. As a result, the components of income from operations for one segment may not be comparable to another segment. Segment results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006 are as follows:

(1) Net income and earnings per share amounts are after tax.
(2) The restructuring and other infrequent expenses recorded in the
 second quarter of 2007 related primarily to severance and employee
 relocation costs associated with the Company's rationalization of
 its Valtra sales office located in France as well as the Company's
 rationalization of certain parts, sales and marketing and
 administration functions in Germany.
