Quotes

Doug Oberhelman, chairman and chief executive officer of Caterpillar said, "We're lowering costs, improving cash flow and driving value for our customers through the continued deployment of our lean manufacturing initiatives. We see the benefits of these actions in our first-quarter results and in improving market position for many of our products."
"At this moment, we aren’t talking about a hybrid Macan. But in the future…"
"With the modest improvement in the global economy, we are expecting to deliver better sales and profit this year in Construction Industries, and Energy & Transportation appears to be on track for another solid year.  However, 2014 is shaping up to be another very tough year for mining.  In fact, today's outlook reflects a drop of about 80 percent in sales of large mining trucks from our peak year of 2012" Oberhelman added
"We understand we don't control the economy and have instead focused on what we can improve" Oberhelman said
