    --  Cummins is well positioned to capture long-term growth trends.

    --  Cummins' technical leadership gives the Company a significant
competitive advantage

    --  Cummins' global presence is unmatched by others in the industry.

remainder of the year, Cummins expects to earn between $7.15 and $7.65 a
share.

    "The broad strength we are experiencing in our markets around the world
has positioned us for the best year in the Company's history, and the future
looks extremely bright," Solso said. "We are committed to investing in
