2017 Performance
At-a-Glance

In 2017 many of our key markets improved. Caterpillar capitalized on this opportunity and achieved strong financial results. To further improve our competitiveness, we developed and began to implement a new strategy to deliver profitable growth using the O&E Model as our guide. We’re focusing our efforts on operational excellence, expanded offerings and services. Dividends remain important; Caterpillar has paid increasing dividends to its shareholders for 24 consecutive years, and since 2007, our cash dividend has more than doubled.
