FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

COMMERCIAL VEHICLE GROUP ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER 2019 RESULTS

Continued sales momentum and investing in growth initiatives


NEW ALBANY, OHIO, August 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (the “Company” or "CVG") (NASDAQ: CVGI) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

“Ongoing momentum in the North American heavy- and medium-duty truck markets drove sales growth of 4% during the quarter. We continue to make strategic investments in the business, including manufacturing capacity expansion in our Electrical Systems segment and in corporate development activities associated with the recent strategic reorganization of the business. These investments, coupled with headwinds, resulted in a decrease in operating income compared to the prior year period. Accordingly, we have identified and are implementing a number of cost control and recovery actions to mitigate the impact going forward,” commented Patrick Miller, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe full year 2019 revenues will be slightly higher than 2018 levels, barring any unexpected market shocks. Additionally, the actions taken to enhance operational efficiencies, coupled with our strategic investments in the business should position CVG for longer term success and growth.”

“The headwinds we encountered in the second quarter resulted in a 190 basis point reduction in operating income margin, which was 7.1% for the quarter. Material and labor inflation, and more specifically a new statutorily higher minimum wage in our Mexico wire harness operations, continue to affect results. Additionally, a supplier filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection during the quarter, driving our material costs up and creating manufacturing inefficiencies in one of our facilities. We have taken a number of actions to address these challenges and expect the impact on our results to moderate in the second half of the year,” stated Tim Trenary, Chief Financial Officer. “As regards the Company’s balance sheet, we completed in the second quarter the voluntary lump sum settlement of $7.8 million in pension liabilities for a portion of term vested participants, reducing the future financial risk of our pension plan. Following the transaction, our U.S. pension plan is essentially fully funded and we have transitioned the asset



allocation for the plan to more closely match our liabilities. Net leverage at June 30, 2019 was 1.3 times trailing EBITDA and liquidity was almost $124 million. There were no borrowings on our asset-based revolver in the quarter.”

Consolidated Results

Second Quarter 2019 Results

Second quarter 2019 revenues were $243.2 million compared to $233.4 million in the prior year period, an increase of 4.2%. The increase in revenues period-over-period reflects higher heavy- and medium-duty truck production in North America partially offset by a production decrease in the Asia Pacific construction equipment market. Foreign currency translation adversely impacted second quarter 2019 revenues by $3.5 million, or by 1.5% when compared to the prior year period.

Operating income for the second quarter 2019 was $17.2 million compared to $20.9 million in the prior year period. The decrease in operating income was due primarily to inflationary pressure on material and labor costs, and an increase in selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses. Cost control and cost recovery actions reduced the impact on gross profit of these cost pressures. A new statutorily higher minimum wage in Mexico affecting the region encompassing our wire harness facility in Agua Prieta, Mexico (the "Border Minimum Wage"), a troubled supplier and costs associated with establishing additional manufacturing capacity adversely impacted results in the second quarter of 2019 by approximately $2.9 million, a 120 basis point burden on gross profit margin. Regarding SG&A expenses, costs associated with the strategic reorganization of the Company to, among other things, develop a platform from which to pursue business and corporate development activities gave rise to an approximate $1.0 million increase in costs in the quarter compared to the prior year period.

Interest and other expense was $7.5 million and $3.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The increase reflects the impact of marking-to-market the interest rate swap agreements, which resulted in a $1.1 million non-cash charge in the three months ended June 30, 2019 and a $0.5 million gain in the prior year period. In addition, the second quarter results include a $2.5 million non-cash charge associated with the early payout of benefits to employees with deferred vested balances in the U.S. defined benefit pension plan.

Net income was $7.2 million for the second quarter 2019, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to net income of $13.2 million in the prior year period, or $0.43 per diluted share.

At June 30, 2019, the Company had liquidity of $123.9 million: $60.5 million of cash and $63.4 million of availability from our asset-based revolver. There were no borrowings on our asset-based revolver at June 30, 2019.
    
Segment Results

Electrical Systems Segment

Second Quarter 2019 Results

Revenues for the Electrical Systems Segment in the second quarter 2019 were $141.9 million compared to $134.6 million for the prior year period, an increase of 5.5% primarily resulting from higher North American heavy- and medium-duty truck production. Foreign currency translation adversely impacted second quarter 2019 revenue by $1.1 million, or by 0.8% when compared to the prior year period.

Operating income for the second quarter 2019 was $15.3 million compared to operating income of $17.4 million in the prior year period. The decrease in operating income period over period is primarily attributable to the Border Minimum Wage, a troubled supplier and costs associated with establishing additional manufacturing capacity. The impact of the Border Minimum Wage on the second quarter of 2019 was



approximately $0.7 million. A number of actions, including price adjustments on certain products, are underway to reduce the impact of the law. In the second quarter of 2019, a supplier of fabricated metal components sought relief pursuant to Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. This troubled supplier adversely impacted costs, including purchased component costs and contributed to manufacturing inefficiencies in one of our facilities in the second quarter of 2019 by approximately $1.2 million. Costs associated with the installation of additional manufacturing capacity in our global wire harness and North American trim businesses adversely impacted second quarter results by approximately $1.0 million. SG&A expenses, notwithstanding the increase in sales, were largely unchanged compared to the prior year, reflecting a focus on cost discipline.

Global Seating Segment

Second Quarter 2019 Results

Revenues for the Global Seating Segment in the second quarter 2019 were $105.3 million compared to $102.2 million in the prior year period, an increase of 3.0% due to continued strength in the heavy- and medium-duty truck market in North America, partially offset by a softening in Asia Pacific construction equipment market. Foreign currency translation adversely impacted second quarter 2019 revenues by $2.4 million, or by 2.4% when compared to the prior year period.

Operating income for the second quarter 2019 was $9.4 million compared to operating income of $8.8 million in the prior year period. The increase in operating income period-over-period is primarily attributable to the increase in sales partially offset by material and labor inflationary pressures. SG&A expenses decreased, notwithstanding the increase in sales, by $0.4 million compared to the prior year period, reflecting a focus on cost discipline.

2019 End Market Outlook

Management estimates that 2019 North American Class 8 truck production will be in the range of 345,000 to 355,000 units and 2019 North American Class 5-7 truck production will be similar to 2018. The construction markets we serve reflect continued strength in North America, signs of moderation in Europe, and softening in Asia Pacific.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This earnings release contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). In general, the non-GAAP measures exclude items that (i) management believes reflect the Company’s multi-year corporate activities; or (ii) relate to activities or actions that may have occurred over multiple or in prior periods without predictable trends. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate the Company’s performance, engage in financial and operational planning and to determine incentive compensation.

Management provides these non-GAAP financial measures to investors as supplemental metrics to assist readers in assessing the effects of items and events on the Company’s financial and operating results and in comparing the Company’s performance to that of its competitors and to comparable reporting periods. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements set forth above should be carefully evaluated.
