On December 22, 2023, Cummins announced that it had “reached an agreement in principle with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the California Air Resources Board (‘CARB’), the Environmental and Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and the California Attorney General’s Office to resolve civil claims regarding the Company’s emissions certification and compliance process for certain engines primarily used in pick-up truck applications in the United States (collectively, the ‘Agreement in Principle’).  The Agreement in Principle relates to the ongoing formal review of the Company’s emissions certification process and compliance with emissions standards for certain pickup truck applications.”  Accordingly, Cummins stated that it “expects to record a charge of approximately $2.04 billion in the fourth quarter of 2023 to resolve these claims and related matters.”  That same day, the United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) issued a press release announcing, in relevant part, that Cummins had agreed “to pay a $1.675 billion penalty to settle claims that it violated the Clean Air Act by installing emissions defeat devices on hundreds of thousands of engines.”  The DOJ press release stated that Cummins “allegedly installed defeat devices on 630,000 model year 2013 to 2019 RAM 2500 and 3500 pickup truck engines” and “also allegedly installed undisclosed auxiliary emission control devices on 330,000 model year 2019 to 2023 RAM 2500 and 3500 pickup truck engines”. 

On this news, Cummins’s stock price fell $7.01 per share, or 2.87%, to close at $236.99 per share on December 22, 2023.
