Operating income for the second quarter was $6.3 million, compared to $0.8 million for the second quarter of 2007.

Fully diluted shares outstanding for the quarter were 21.8 million.
"This most recent quarter was filled with increasing economic pressures on a global basis," said Mervin Dunn, president and chief executive officer of Commercial Vehicle Group. "We continue to experience the impacts of the current economic environment through our supply chain, foreign currency transactions and across our overall cost structure. Despite these difficult times, we continue to forge ahead with our long-term strategy while placing a great deal of emphasis on cost improvement and containment throughout our company," added Dunn.
Revenues for the quarter compared to the prior-year period increased by approximately $50.7 million due primarily to the increase in the North American Class 8 heavy truck market as well as acquisitions made during the fourth quarter of 2007. Operating income increased by approximately $5.6 million from the prior year quarter and net income increased by approximately $3.3 million from the prior year quarter.
The Company reported revenues of $406.2 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2008 compared to $357.4 million in the prior-year period. Operating income for the six-month period ended June 30, 2008 was $17.8 million compared to $11.4 million last year. Net income for the six-month period was $3.6 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.7 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the prior six-month period. Fully diluted shares outstanding for the six-month period ended June 30, 2008 and June 30, 2007 was 21.7 million.
"The impact from dramatically rising fuel and raw material costs together with fluctuating currencies make for very trying times for our company and difficult to provide definitive guidance on results for the balance of the year," said Chad M. Utrup, chief financial officer of Commercial Vehicle Group. "We will discuss these items as well as the North American Class 8 market and global construction market trends in further detail on our earnings call on July 23rd," added Utrup.

Footnotes to Press Release
(1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is reconciled to net income, its most directly comparable GAAP measure, in the accompanying financial tables. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, gains/losses on the early extinguishment of debt, gain/losses on the sale of long-lived assets, miscellaneous income/expenses, restructuring charges and cumulative effect of changes in accounting principle. In calculating Adjusted EBITDA, the Company excludes the effects of gains/losses on the early extinguishment of debt, gains/losses on the sale of long-lived assets, miscellaneous income/expenses, restructuring charges and cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles because the Company's management believes that some of these items may not occur in certain periods, the amounts recognized can vary significantly from period to period and these items do not facilitate an understanding of the Company's operating performance. The Company's management utilizes Adjusted EBITDA, in addition to the supplemental information, as an operating performance measure in conjunction with GAAP measures, such as net income and gross margin calculated in conformity with GAAP.
The Company's management uses Adjusted EBITDA, in addition to the supplemental information, as an integral part of its report and planning processes and as one of the primary measures to, among other things:
(i) monitor and evaluate the performance of the Company's business operations; (ii) facilitate management's internal comparisons of the Company's historical operating performance of its business operations; (iii) facilitate management's external comparisons of the results of its overall business to the historical operating performance of other companies that may have different capital structures and debt levels; (iv) review and assess the operating performance of the Company's management team and as a measure in evaluating employee compensation and bonuses; (v) analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments; and (vi) plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments.
The Company's management believes that Adjusted EBITDA, in addition to the supplemental information, is useful to investors as it provides them with disclosures of the Company's operating results on the same basis as that used by the Company's management. Additionally, the Company's management believes that Adjusted EBITDA, in addition to the supplemental information, provides useful information to investors about the performance of the Company's overall business because the measure eliminates the effects of certain recurring and other unusual or infrequent charges that are not directly attributable to the Company's underlying operating performance. Additionally, the Company's management believes that because it has historically provided a non-GAAP financial measure in previous filings, that continuing to include a non-GAAP measure in its filings provides consistency in its financial reporting and continuity to investors for comparability purposes. Accordingly, the Company believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, when used in conjunction with the supplemental information and GAAP financial measures, is a useful financial analysis tool, used by the Company's management as described above, that can assist investors in assessing the Company's financial condition, operating performance and underlying strength. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income prepared in conformity with GAAP. Other companies may define Adjusted EBITDA differently. Adjusted EBITDA, as well as the other information in this filing, should be read in conjunction with the Company's financial statements and footnotes contained in the documents that the Company files with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
