Company expects acquisition to close October 1, 2018

Tenneco Inc. (NYSE:TEN) announced that at its special meeting of
stockholders held today, stockholders approved all of the proposals
necessary to complete the acquisition of Federal-Mogul LLC.

With more than 85 percent of eligible shares voting, Tenneco
stockholders approved a proposal to adopt an amended and restated
certificate of incorporation that creates a new class of non-voting
common stock, and reclassifies existing common stock as voting common
stock; a proposal to approve the issuance of stock consideration to be
paid for the acquisition of Federal-Mogul; and a proposal to approve the
amended and restated Tenneco Inc. 2006 long-term incentive plan to
change the number of shares available for issuance. All three proposals
received the support of over 90 percent of the shares voted, including
the proposal to issue stock for the acquisition of Federal Mogul, which
was approved by approximately 98 percent of the shares voted.

"We are very pleased with the results of the meeting and the strong vote
of confidence from our stockholders," said Tenneco Chairman Gregg
Sherrill. "This is a major step forward in the creation of two strong
leading global companies, each in an excellent position to capture
opportunities unique to their respective markets, and realigned in a way
to unlock shareholder value."

During the meeting, the company announced that it had received the
regulatory approvals required to close, and that it expects the
Federal-Mogul acquisition will close on October 1, 2018.
