Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Financial Statements and Exhibits

Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On February 4, 2014, AGCO Corporation issued a press release reporting its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

In the press release, AGCO uses non-GAAP financial measures. For purposes of SEC Regulation G, a "non-GAAP financial measure" is a numerical measure of a registrant's historical or future performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of income, balance sheet or statement of cash flows of the issuer; or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to operating income, net income, earnings per share and cash flows from operating activities as computed under GAAP for the applicable period. AGCO considers operating income, net income, and earnings per share to be the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP financial measures that AGCO provides, and AGCO has included, as a part of the press release, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

AGCO uses income from operations, net income and earnings per share amounts that have been adjusted to exclude infrequent income or expenses. Infrequent income or expenses occur regularly in AGCO's business, but vary in size and frequency. AGCO believes that the adjusted amounts provide management and investors useful information because the income or expenses that are excluded relate to events that resulted in significant impact during the quarter, but will recur only in varied amounts and with unpredictable frequency.

AGCO also provides net sales amounts that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of currency translation. AGCO believes that the adjusted amounts provide useful information to management and investors to better analyze the causes of changes in sales between periods.

AGCO's management historically has focused on the generation of cash flow in order to reduce indebtedness and for other corporate purposes. Management uses free cash flow to assess its performance in this area. AGCO believes that free cash flow provides a meaningful measure to investors because, unlike cash flow from operations, it includes the impact of capital expenditures, and therefore, provides a more complete picture of cash generation.

The information in this Form 8-K and the Exhibit shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing of AGCO under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
