Commercial Vehicle Group Reports Second Quarter 2010 Results

NEW ALBANY, Ohio, Aug 04, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVGI) today reported revenues of $142.3 million for the second quarter of 2010, compared to revenues of $103.5 million for the second quarter of 2009. Operating income for the second quarter of 2010 was $2.6 million compared to an operating loss of ($22.2) million for the second quarter of 2009. Net income was $0.7 million for the quarter, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of ($22.5) million, or ($1.04) per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. Fully diluted shares outstanding for the quarter were 28.0 million compared to 21.7 million for the prior-year period.

Included in the Company's results for the quarter was approximately $1.4 million of restructuring expense related to the closure of its Norwalk, Ohio facility. Excluding this restructuring expense, the Company's operating income was approximately $4.0 million for the quarter. The Company also recorded other income of $1.3 million, primarily related to the gain on the mark to market of its foreign exchange currency contracts.

"We are pleased to see signs of recovery in our end markets and the benefits of our profit improvement initiatives, which are reflected in our positive results," said Mervin Dunn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Commercial Vehicle Group. "With many of our key end markets showing positive trends in the last few quarters, we are optimistic about our longer-term opportunities," added Mr. Dunn.

Revenues for the quarter compared to the prior-year period increased by approximately $38.8 million, or 37.5%, due primarily to the increase in the Company's OEM truck, construction and military end markets and operating income for the quarter increased by approximately $24.8 million compared to the prior-year period. Excluding restructuring charges of $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2010 and $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2009 as well as intangible and long-lived asset impairment charges of $7.0 million and $3.4 million, respectively, in the second quarter of 2009, operating income for the quarter compared to the prior-year period increased by approximately $15.6 million.

The Company reported a positive cash balance of $52.4 million as of June 30, 2010 and had zero funds borrowed under its revolving credit facility.

"Our financial achievements through the second quarter of 2010 are positive. Excluding non-recurring items such as restructuring charges and asset impairments, our quarterly operating income improved approximately $15.6 million on $38.8 million of incremental revenues versus last year. This marks our fifth consecutive quarter of operating income improvement when excluding one-time adjustments such as restructuring and impairment charges, and we are extremely pleased with these trends," said Chad M. Utrup, Chief Financial Officer of Commercial Vehicle Group. "As a result of the financial successes we have achieved over the past year, combined with our significant improvement in cash and liquidity, we feel we are in a strong position as we move forward," added Mr. Utrup.

The Company currently expects North American class 8 production units in the range of 150 thousand to 155 thousand for the full year 2010 and approximately 220 to 230 thousand units for 2011. The Company is not providing revenue or earnings estimates; however, it does not expect to be required to comply with any financial covenant requirements for the full year 2010 at this time.
