Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq: CVGI) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Patrick Miller, President and CEO, stated, "Our two largest end markets, North American heavy-duty truck and global construction equipment remain at depressed levels.  Consequently, revenues in the third quarter were down 24 percent period-over-period.  I continue to be pleased with the response of our operations and support teams to this challenging sales environment - our margins are outperforming historical sales conversions.  Especially pleasing is the performance of the team leading our Global Construction and Agriculture Segment - GCA operating income improved $3 million in the quarter on lower period-over-period sales.   This proactive response to the business cycle has and continues to position CVG with a favorable cost structure that is expected to contribute to earnings when the cycle turns up."  Miller added, "The restructuring actions to improve capacity utilization and lower landed cost to our customers continue as planned and are on time as well as at or below the initial cost estimates.  We believe this restructuring, when taken together with our corporate-wide cost reduction actions, our next generation product launches, and our dedication to high product quality and delivery standards is improving customer satisfaction and will contribute to improved earnings when our end markets rebound."

Tim Trenary, Chief Financial Officer, stated, "The Company continues to manage down investment in operating working capital.  This has contributed to cash build of $45 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  The Company's debt, less cash, is now just under $100 million and therefore just over two times trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA of $48 million.  This improvement in the Company's balance sheet and the improved cost structure that Pat described bodes well for value creation in an improved sales environment."

Consolidated Results

  • Third quarter 2016 revenues were $153.6 million compared to $202.7 million in the prior-year period, a decrease of 24.2 percent. The decrease in revenues period-over-period reflects significantly lower heavy-duty truck production in North America as manufacturers adjust production schedules to more closely reflect replacement level orders and excess inventory of new trucks.  Foreign currency translation adversely impacted third quarter 2016 revenues by $2.3 million, or by 1.1 percent when compared to the same period in the prior year.
  • Operating income in the third quarter 2016 was $4.5 million compared to operating income of $9.9 million in the prior year period. The decrease in operating income period-over-period was primarily the result of lower revenues offset somewhat by operational improvements and the benefit of the cost reduction and restructuring actions. Third quarter 2016 results include $1.5 million of costs associated with our ongoing restructuring initiatives. Third quarter 2015 results include $0.3 million of costs associated with the restructuring initiatives.
  • Net income was $1.1 million in the third quarter 2016, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.6 million in the prior year period, or $0.09 per diluted share. Earnings per share, as adjusted for special items, were $0.07 per diluted share in the third quarter 2016 compared to $0.10 per diluted share in the prior-year period. Net income in the third quarter 2016 benefited from $1.5 million of tax benefit primarily as a consequence of the geographic profile of pre-tax income and loss.

As of September 30, 2016, the Company did not have any borrowings under its asset-based revolver and was not subject to any financial maintenance covenants.  At September 30, 2016, the Company had liquidity of $175 million: $137 million of cash and $38 million of availability from our asset based revolver.

Segment Results

Global Truck and Bus Segment

  • Revenues for the Global Truck and Bus Segment in the third quarter 2016 were $96.0 million compared to $142.9 million for the prior year period, a decrease of 32.8 percent primarily resulting from lower North American heavy-duty truck production when compared to the same period in the prior year.
  • Operating income in the third quarter 2016 was $5.1 million compared to operating income of $16.4 million in the prior year period. The decrease in operating income period-over-period is primarily the result of the decrease in revenues offset by operational improvements and the benefit of the cost reduction and restructuring actions. Third quarter 2016 results include $1.3 million of costs associated with our ongoing restructuring initiatives. Third quarter 2015 results include $0.3 million of costs associated with the restructuring initiatives.

Global Construction and Agriculture Segment

  • Revenues for the Global Construction and Agriculture Segment in the third quarter 2016 were $59.4 million compared to $62.5 million in the prior year period, a decrease of 5.0 percent. The global construction and agriculture end markets for which we manufacture products continue to be soft. Foreign currency translation adversely impacted third quarter 2016 revenues by $2.4 million, or by 3.8 percent when compared to the same period in the prior year.
  • Operating income for the third quarter 2016 was $3.9 million compared to operating income of $0.8 million for the prior year period. Improvement in operating income period-over-period resulted primarily from operational improvements and the benefit of the cost reduction and restructuring actions. Third quarter 2016 results include $0.2 million of costs associated with our ongoing restructuring initiatives.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures referenced in this release is included as Appendix A to this release.

2016 End Market Outlook

Management estimates that the 2016 North American Class 8 truck production will be in the range of 215,000 - 225,000 units, down from a near historically high level of 323,000 units in 2015; North American Class 5-7 production is expected to be stable year-over-year.  Management believes there is a bias toward continued softness in the global construction and agriculture equipment markets, more so in North America than the rest of the world.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This earnings release contains financial measures that are not in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In general, the non-GAAP measures exclude items and charges that management believes reflect the cost reduction and restructuring actions being undertaken by the Company.  These items and charges that are excluded have taken place over multiple prior periods without predictable trends. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company's performance, engage in financial and operational planning and to, in part, 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 comparable reporting periods. However, 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, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements set forth above should be carefully evaluated.
