The PricewaterhouseCoopers Shareholder Value Indices capture 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 provides a measurement of shareholder value for stock market-listed automotive companies.  

"The global automotive business is a great business and it is starting to feel that way again," emphasized Dave Breen, U.S. automotive leader, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.  "The winners represent a truly global business as we recognize four companies based in different countries around the globe.  These companies have responded to macro economic factors and industry overhaul to achieve improved shareholder value."  

Shareholder Value Indices have been reported in Automotive News on a quarterly basis since January 2000.  The 2009 complete year-end results and Automotive Shareholder Award winners are announced in the January 18, 2010 issue of Automotive News at www.autonews.com and can also be found at www.pwc.com/auto from that date.
