NEW ALBANY, Ohio, Nov. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CVG (NASDAQ: CVGI), a diversified industrial products and services company, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

Third Quarter 2022 Highlights (Compared with prior year, where comparisons are noted)

  • Revenues of $251.4 million, up $11.8 million or 4.9%. Operating Income of $9.5 million. Adjusted operating income of $10.6 million, down $1.6 million or 13.1% versus Q3 2021.
  • Net income of $3.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share. Adjusted net income of $5.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, a decrease of $0.10 per diluted share versus Q3 2021.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $14.3 million, down $2.6 million or 15.4% versus Q3 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 5.7% versus 7.1% in Q3 2021.
  • Expect full year debt paydown at the high end of $25 million to $40 million range, and on track to fully pay off revolver in Q4 2022.
  • Innovation program continued to deliver new products, new customers, and new business wins and remains on track for approximately $200 million in annualized wins in 2022.
  • Efforts to transform cost structure remain ahead of schedule, improving our competitive position with next-generation manufacturing processes as well as new low-cost plants in low-cost countries.

Harold Bevis, President and Chief Executive Officer of CVG, said, "CVG continued to deliver against its business transformation plan with sequential improvements in revenue, adjusted EBITDA, operating income margin, free cash flow, and new business wins during the quarter. In the third quarter, sales and profit increased in our vehicle businesses, somewhat offsetting the pause in warehouse automation that we highlighted last quarter. Our operating performance is on track to deliver the higher end of our free cash flow generation target, which in turn puts us on track to pay down debt at the higher end of the previously announced range, fully pay off our revolving credit facility and end the year with cash on hand.”

“CVG’s transformation plan is on track; however, 2022 results have been masked by persisting inflationary pressures. Our plan includes improving or exiting underperforming legacy business, winning new business, particularly within our Electrical Systems segment, and improving our balance sheet. Our new wins, particularly within the electric vehicle market, remain on pace for a record year, supporting our goal of increasing the accretive mix of Electrical Systems sales for CVG. Our customers truly appreciate our value-add in this business, and we are now a Tier 1 designer of electrical systems for electric vehicle manufacturers.”

“We are proud of the progress we’ve made company-wide, thanks to our great team of leaders and employees, and are encouraged by strong underlying vehicle demand and new business wins. While we continue to operate in a challenging macro environment, we believe we are beginning to see some relief, particularly as it relates to steel pricing and freight costs.”

Consolidated Results of Operations

Third Quarter 2022 Results

  • Third quarter 2022 revenues increased 4.9% to $251.4 million, compared to $239.6 million in the prior year period. The increase in revenues was primarily driven by increased pricing to offset material cost increases and volume, offset by a volume decrease in Warehouse Automation. Foreign currency translation also unfavorably impacted third quarter 2022 revenues by $6.5 million, or 2.7%.
  • Operating income in the third quarter 2022 was $9.5 million compared to $11.4 million in the prior year period. The decrease in operating income was primarily attributable to a lag in price-cost offsets, $2.9 million of new business startup costs and $0.6 million of restructuring expenses. The third quarter 2022 adjusted operating income was $10.6 million, excluding special charges.
  • Interest associated with debt was $2.8 million and $1.6 million for the third quarter 2022 and 2021, respectively.
  • Net income was $3.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the third quarter 2022 compared to $7.5 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

At September 30, 2022, the Company had $11.6 million of outstanding borrowings on its revolving credit facility, $38.7 million of cash and $137.2 million of availability from the revolving credit facility, resulting in total liquidity of $175.9 million.

Third Quarter 2022 Segment Results

Vehicle Solutions Segment

  • Revenues in the third quarter 2022 increased 30.6% to $154.0 million, compared to $117.9 million in the prior year period, primarily resulting from material cost pass-through and favorable volume.
  • Operating income in the third quarter 2022 increased 227.3% to $9.6 million, compared to $2.9 million in the prior year period, primarily driven by volume leverage, increased pricing and lower health care expense.

   Electrical Systems Segment

  • Revenues in the third quarter 2022 increased 15.1% to $46.1 million, compared to $40.1 million in the prior year period, primarily resulting from material cost pass-through and contributions from new business wins.
  • Operating income was $5.2 million compared to $4.9 million in the prior year period. The increase in operating income was primarily attributable to a decrease in SG&A expenses offset by increased labor costs, raw material inflation and freight cost increases.

Aftermarket and Accessories Segment

  • Revenues in the third quarter 2022 increased 24.1% to $37.1 million, compared to $29.9 million in the prior year period, primarily resulting from increased volume and pricing to offset material cost pass-through.
  • Operating income was $5.0 million compared to $2.3 million in the prior year period. The increase in operating income was primarily attributable to the increase in pricing to offset material cost pass-through. Adjusted operating income was $5.4 million, an increase of 129.8%.

Warehouse Automation Segment

  • Revenues in the third quarter 2022 were $14.1 million compared to $51.7 million in the prior year period, a decrease of 72.7% primarily due to lower demand levels.
  • Operating loss in the third quarter 2022 was $1.0 million compared to operating income of $8.0 million in the prior year period. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower volumes. Adjusted operating loss was $0.7 million, compared to income of $8.1 million in the prior period.

Demand Outlook

According to ACT Research, 2022 North American Class 8 truck production levels are expected to be at 310,000 units and Class 5-7 production are expected to be at 234,000 units. This outlook supports the Company’s 2022 projections for production of vehicle 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.
