The PwC Shareholder Value Index determines a company's performance by taking into account both increases and decreases in a share price, dividends, share buy-backs and new share issues.  The result is one benchmark that measures shareholder value for stock market-listed automotive companies. 

"It is an honor to recognize the 2012 shareholder value winners," said Rick Hanna, global automotive leader, PwC.  "The returns generated by this year's winning companies and the overall shareholder value indices are reflective of the strength of the recovery in industry.  The fact that winning vehicle manufacturers and suppliers are European entities demonstrates the truly global nature of the industry.  Congratulations to this year's winning companies."

Shareholder Value Indices have been reported in Automotive News on a quarterly basis since January 2000.  The 2012 complete year-end results and Automotive Shareholder Award winners will be announced in the January 16, 2013, and in the January 21 print edition of Automotive News at www.autonews.com and can also be found at www.pwc.com/auto from that date.
