CVG Reports First Quarter 2022 Results

May, 04, 2022
Quarterly Sales of $244.4 million, EPS $0.12, Adjusted EPS $0.16

NEW ALBANY, Ohio, May 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CVG (NASDAQ: CVGI), a diversified industrial products and services company, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights (Compared with prior-year period, where comparisons are noted)

  • Sales of $244.4 million.
  • Net income of $4.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share. Adjusted net income of $5.3 million, or $0.16 per diluted share.
  • Operating Income of $8.4 million, adjusted operating income of $9.5 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $13.5 million, and adjusted EBITDA margin of 5.5%.
  • 14 new business wins worth an estimated $89 million of net new annualized business.

CVG continues to execute its Leadership Strategy, and is making substantial progress.

Win New Business. CVG continued to win more business in the first quarter with $89 million of new annualized business added to its existing wins which now total over $2 billion lifetime and over $500 million when fully ramped up. CVG is very focused on electrification and Electric Vehicles and the majority of its wins are in this area. The company has also won business in all of its segments and added over 100 new products and many new customers in the last 27 months. The company is expensing its one-time startup costs in the period incurred.

Update Legacy Business. CVG reached mutual agreement with its top two customers collectively representing approximately 30% of the Company's revenue. The new agreements are significant improvement in profitability. CVG also is implementing a targeted investment program to advance competitiveness. As inflation has inflected upwards, CVG is focused on timely pass-through of these economics.

Modernize Global Footprint. CVG has multiple projects underway to redesign its manufacturing systems with new capacity, repositioned capacity and lower total cost locations. The company is expensing these costs in the period incurred. The company expects to lower its invested capital and these efforts are expected to start showing up in our results during the second half of this year.

Harold Bevis, President and Chief Executive Officer of CVG, said, "CVG made big advancements in the quarter – starting up new Electric Vehicle business, winning brand-new business, increasing prices on legacy business, and adding a few new impactful leaders. Like most global manufacturers, we are contending with many global events – COVID disrupted supply chains, labor scarcity, inflation, Shanghai lockdown, and Russia's invasion of Ukraine. These events are impeding our financial performance but we are implementing workarounds in each case. We have increased our commitment to electrification and Electric Vehicles and are opening our 1st electrical products R&D center in Phoenix, Arizona. This location is just north of our 2,000+ employee electrical products plant in Agua Prieta, Mexico. This is the center of our Electric Vehicle business. We expect significant improvement to our profits in the second half of 2022, and plan to begin our debt paydown program."

Consolidated Results
First Quarter 2022 Results

  • First quarter 2022 revenues were $244.4 million compared to $245.1 million in the prior year period, a decrease of 0.3%. The decrease in revenues is due to lower shipments caused by the COVID lockdowns in China, the Ukraine conflict and lower demand in the warehouse automation business. These impacts were nearly offset by price increases in all of the business segments. Foreign currency translation also favorably impacted first quarter of 2022 revenues by $1.1 million, or by 0.5%.
  • Operating income for the first quarter 2022 was $8.4 million, which includes startup costs of $3.1 million, compared to an operating income of $15.4 million in the prior year period. The first quarter of 2022 adjusted operating income was $9.5 million, excluding special charges.
  • Interest associated with debt and other expenses was $2.0 million and $5.0 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
  • Net income was $4.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2022 compared to net income $8.5 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

At March 31, 2022, the Company had $80.2 million outstanding borrowings on its revolving credit facility and had $38.2 million of cash and $43.6 million of availability from the revolving credit facility, resulting in liquidity of $81.8 million.

Segment Results

First Quarter 2022 Results

Vehicle Solutions Segment

  • Revenues were $140.2 million compared to $124.3 million for the prior year period, an increase of 13% primarily resulting from material cost pass-through and new business wins offset by lower shipments caused by the COVID lockdowns in China.
  • Operating income for the first quarter 2022 was $6.3 million compared to operating income of $7.5 million in the prior year period, a decrease of 15.6%. Adjusted operating income decreased 12.8%, to $6.5 million, primarily driven by a lag in price-cost offsets and increased new business startup costs. In April, the Company has reached new mutual economic agreements with its largest customers in this segment.

Warehouse Automation Segment

  • Revenues were $34.1 million compared to $44.4 million in the prior year period, a decrease of 23.1% due to lower demand levels.
  • Operating income was $3.7 million compared to operating income of $3.9 million in the prior year period. The decrease in operating income is primarily attributable to lower volumes. Adjusted operating income was $4.1 million, a decrease of 2.0%.

Electric Systems Segment

  • Revenues were $39.9 million compared to $46.5 million in the prior year period, a decrease of 14.2% due to lower volume caused by the war in the Ukraine, supply chain constraints and semi-conductor chip shortages at our customers' plants.
  • Operating income was $1.8 million compared to operating income of $4.9 million in the prior year period. The decrease in operating income is primarily attributable to new business startup costs, lower volumes, and a lag in price-cost offsets. The Company is underway with a footprint investment program in this segment and increased its prices at top accounts.

Aftermarket and Accessories Segment

  • Revenues were $30.2 million compared to $29.9 million in the prior year period, an increase of 1%.
  • Operating income was $2.6 million compared to operating income of $4.2 million in the prior year period. The decrease in operating income is primarily attributable to supply chain constraints and material cost inflation incurred in advance of price increases. Adjusted operating income was $3.1 million, a decrease of 26.6%. The Company is underway with a footprint investment program in this segment and increased its prices at top accounts.

2022 Demand Outlook

The Company expects Class 8 truck production to be 275,000 to 295,000 trucks. According to the April 2022 report by ACT Research, a publisher of industry market research, 2022 North American Class 8 truck production levels are expected to be at 296,000 units and Class 5-7 production are expected to be at 256,000 units. This outlook supports the Company's 2022 outlook.

According to LogisticsIQ, demand for warehouse automation products is expected to grow approximately 14% per year through 2026. This outlook supports demand for the Company's warehouse automation products.

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.
