Martinrea International Inc. Releases First Quarter Results and Announces Dividend

Record Quarterly Revenues, Improving Operations

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - Martinrea International Inc. (TSX:MRE), a leader in the production of quality metal parts, assemblies and modules and fluid management systems focused primarily on the automotive sector, announced today the release of its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014, record quarterly revenues, improving operations and a quarterly dividend.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Record Quarterly Revenues
  • Quarter-over-Quarter Operational and Margin Improvement
  • Record Quarter for Martinrea Honsel
  • Profitability Increasing in Second Quarter
  • Dividend Announced

OVERVIEW

Nick Orlando, Martinrea's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We are highly focused on improving our operations everywhere, including in our metal plants in the United States, which are showing improvement in the first quarter and year to date. The first quarter results are tempered somewhat because of launch costs from several launches and the issues we experienced at our Hopkinsville plant late last year which carried over into the first quarter, but we are making progress. Many of our plants, whether doing fluids, metallic, aluminum or assembly work, are performing very well financially. In terms of new business won since our last release just a few weeks ago, we have won approximately $40 million in incremental annualized business including $25 million in incremental volume on Daimler's next generation AMG V8 engine block starting in 2016, $10 million of incremental content on Ford's CD4.3 platform in both China and North America starting in 2016 and $5 million of business for the Company's Rollstar plant for Chrysler on its minivan line starting in 2016."

Fred Di Tosto, Martinrea's Chief Financial Officer, stated: "Revenues for our first quarter, excluding tooling revenues, were approximately $838 million, within the range of our previously announced sales guidance, and a record quarter for us. In the first quarter, our adjusted earnings per share, on a basic and diluted basis, was $0.21, after adjusting for relatively low unusual items in the nature of non-insured litigation costs, and within our recently announced quarterly guidance. The Martinrea Honsel operations contributed $0.12 per share to our first quarter results, a record contribution for us. The Martinrea Honsel operations benefitted from higher revenues, resulting from higher customer demand in Europe in the first quarter, in particular in our German operations. As a result of the strong performance of Martinrea Honsel, the value of the put option on the Company's balance sheet increased by $31 million during the quarter to $186 million at March 31, 2014, demonstrating the significant increase in value we have brought to that asset. While Martinrea Honsel is expected to continue to contribute strongly to our overall business, we anticipate that the next several quarters will contribute less earnings than the first quarter, as volumes will be somewhat lower and as we enter into a period of higher launch activity on business previously won and announced."

Rob Wildeboer, Martinrea's Executive Chairman, stated: "While 2013 overall was a good year for us, we believe 2014 will be better overall. In our first quarter we started to see operational and financial improvements from the previous quarter. Most of our businesses are doing well-our aluminum and fluids businesses had strong quarters; our assembly operations are doing well; and many of our metallic plants are meeting or exceeding budget. Certain U.S. metallic plants are making the necessary improvements to operations that will improve margin. Our second quarter is expected to generate revenues for the quarter (excluding tooling revenues) in the range of $860 to $890 million and we believe our earnings per share will be in the range of 27 to 31 cents per share, one of the best quarters in our history from a financial point of view. Most of the profit improvement will come from our Martinrea Classic operations. Our Martinrea Honsel operations are anticipated to generate earnings per share in the range of 7 to 9 cents for the quarter. In summary, the future looks good for us. We are making good progress and are addressing our issues; our profitability overall is improving; our financial position is strong; we have a committed and strong independent board of directors and a dedicated team at the company focused on the future; and we will continue to improve."

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Martinrea currently employs over 13,000 skilled and motivated people in 38 plants in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Europe, and China.

Non-IFRS Measures

The Company prepares its financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). However, the Company has included certain non-IFRS financial measures and ratios in this Press Release that the Company believes will provide useful information in measuring the financial performance and financial condition of the Company. These measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other publicly traded companies, nor should they be construed as an alternative to the other financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS. Non-IFRS measures referred to in the analysis include "adjusted net earnings" and "adjusted earnings per share on a basic and diluted basis", and are defined in Table A under "Adjustments to Net Income" of this Press Release.

Revenue

Three months ended March 31, 2014 to three months ended March 31, 2013 comparison

Three months ended March 31, 2014 Three months ended March 31, 2013 $ Change % Change
North America $ 663,664 $ 610,531 53,133 8.7 %
Europe 183,653 141,811 41,842 29.5 %
Rest of World 17,176 16,780 396 2.4 %
Revenue $ 864,493 $ 769,122 95,371 12.4 %

The Company's consolidated revenues for the first quarter of 2014 increased by $95.4 million or 12.4% to $864.5 million as compared to $769.1 million for the first quarter of 2013. Revenues increased year-over-year across all operating segments.

Revenues for the first quarter of 2014 in the Company's North America operating segment increased by $53.1 million or 8.7% to $663.7 million from $610.5 million for the first quarter of 2013. The increase was due to an overall increase in North American OEM light vehicle production, in particular year-over-year increased production volumes on the GM Equinox/Terrain, Ford Fusion and Ford Escape, three of the Company's largest platforms, the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the first quarter of 2013, including GM's full size pick-up trucks, Chevrolet Impala and BMW X5, and the impact of foreign exchange on the translation of U.S. denominated production revenue, which had a positive impact on revenue for the first quarter of 2014 of $45.3 million. The increase in revenue was partially offset by a $29.1 million decrease in tooling revenues, which is typically dependent on the timing of tooling construction and final inspection and acceptance by the customer.

Revenues for the first quarter of 2014 in the Company's Europe operating segment, comprised predominately of the European operations of Martinrea Honsel, increased by $41.8 million or 29.5% to $183.7 million from $141.8 million for the first quarter of 2013. The increase was due to the launch of new incremental aluminum business with Jaguar Land Rover including the sub-frame and shock towers for the new Range Rover Sport; an overall year-over-year increase in European OEM light vehicle production; a $6.1 million increase in tooling revenues; an $18.7 million benefit from the impact of foreign exchange on the translation of Euro denominated production revenue; and year-over-year increased production revenues in the Company's plant in Slovakia, which continues to ramp-up and launch its backlog of business.

Revenues for the first quarter of 2014 in the Company's Rest of World operating segment, currently comprised of the Brazilian operations of Martinrea Honsel and a facility in China in its early stages, increased by $0.4 million or 2.4% to $17.2 million from $16.8 million for the first quarter of 2013. The increase can be attributed to the launch of the Company's first product in China for the Ford CD4 program, which began to ramp up at the end of the second quarter of 2013, partially offset by a year-over-year decrease in production volumes in Brazil, the impact of foreign exchange on the translation of Brazilian Real denominated production revenue, which had a negative impact on revenue for the first quarter of 2014 of $0.8 million, and a year-over-year decrease in tooling revenue of $0.8 million.

Overall tooling revenue decreased by $23.8 million from $50.7 million for the first quarter of 2013 to $26.9 million for the first quarter of 2014.

Gross Margin

Three months ended March 31, 2014 to three months ended March 31, 2013 comparison

Three months ended March 31, 2014 Three months ended March 31, 2013 $ Change % Change
Gross margin $ 87,479 $ 75,715 11,764 15.5 %
% of revenue 10.1 % 9.8 %

The gross margin percentage for the first quarter of 2014 of 10.1% increased as a percentage of revenue by 0.3% as compared to the gross margin percentage for the first quarter of 2013 of 9.8%. The increase in gross margin as a percentage of revenue was generally due to:

  • higher capacity utilization from an overall increase in year-over-year production revenues including the launch of new programs subsequent or during the first quarter of 2013 (as noted above);
  • productivity and efficiency improvements at certain operating facilities, in particular the Martinrea Honsel operations in Germany;
  • improved pricing on certain long-term customer contracts in the operations of Martinrea Honsel; and
  • a decrease in tooling revenue which typically earns low or no margins for the Company.

These factors were partially offset by:

  • an increase in integrator or assembly work which typically generates lower margins as a percentage of revenue, although return on capital tends to be higher;
  • program specific launch costs related to new programs that recently launched or are set to launch and ramp up over the next few quarters including the BMW X5, Ford Transit, Ford 2.3 L aluminum engine block, Chrysler 200 and Lincoln MKC; and
  • operational inefficiencies at certain operating facilities, in particular, Hopkinsville, Kentucky (see below).

The performance of the Company's operating facility in Hopkinsville, Kentucky continued to be impacted by launch costs and other operational expenses stemming from the operational issues experienced by the facility during the fourth quarter of 2013. The issues were rooted in serious equipment failures on two of the plant's large tonnage presses which has resulted in incremental premium costs as the facility deals with new program launches, customer-requested engineering changes, which have impacted productivity, and the overall ramp-up in production volumes being experienced in the automotive industry. The presses are currently operational but are not performing at optimal levels. Upgrades to the presses are planned during the 2014 summer and December holiday shutdowns in order to reduce the risk of any further failures and improve the performance of the presses. Notwithstanding the planned upgrades, progress is being made at improving efficiencies at this facility and costs are expected to subside, and margins improve, as operational improvements are made. The facility is focused on cost reduction and improving efficiency with the objective of expanding margin.

In addition to the expected productivity and efficiency improvements at certain operating facilities, in particular in Hopkinsville, Kentucky (as noted above), gross margin is expected to be positively impacted by incremental new business as the Company continues to work through the launch of a significant backlog of business over the next 36 months including the following awarded programs in addition to the programs referred to above: the next wave of Ford CD4 in Europe and North America, GM Omega aluminum engine cradle, GM 31XX (Traverse, SRX), Jaguar LandRover aluminum swivel bearing, Ford Transit, Nissan aluminum I4 engine block, Daimler aluminum transmission casing and engine cradle for the VW Golf.

Adjustments To Net Earnings

(Attributable to Equity Holders of the Company)

(1) External Legal and Forensic Accounting Costs Related to Litigation

As previously disclosed, on September 26, 2013, a former director of the Company filed a statement of claim against the Company making certain allegations against the Company, certain directors and officers, and two Martinrea suppliers. Supervision of the litigation has been delegated to a Special Committee of the Board. Legal counsel has been retained to advise the Special Committee with respect to litigation and legal matters. The Special Committee has retained PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as its independent financial experts to provide such financial and accounting advice and forensic services as the Special Committee may deem appropriate.

In addition, the Company and certain of its officers and directors have been served with a Notice of Action and Statement of Claim that was filed in Windsor, Ontario by an alleged shareholder (the "Statement of Claim"). In the Statement of Claim, the plaintiff seeks, among other things: an order certifying the proceeding as a class proceeding; a declaration that the defendants made negligent misrepresentations in the time period from March 6, 2006 to December 18, 2013 by representing that the Company's financial statements were prepared in accordance with GAAP and/or IFRS; an order granting leave to amend the claim to assert causes of action under the secondary market liability provisions of the Securities Act (Ontario); and special and general damages and costs of notice in the class action in the sum of $100 million.

The costs added back for adjusted net income purposes reflects the legal and forensic accounting costs incurred by the Company in relation to these matters that are not covered by insurance (recorded in SG&A expense). Further amounts related to the costs expensed to date may be recovered from the Company's insurance providers upon completion of their review of the costs incurred.

Net Earnings

Three months ended March 31, 2014 Three months ended March 31, 2013 $ Change % Change
Net Earnings $ 16,691 $ 19,888 (3,197 ) (16.1 %)

Diluted $ 0.20 $ 0.24
Adjusted Net Earnings per common share
Basic $ 0.21 $ 0.24
Diluted $ 0.21 $ 0.24

Net earnings, before adjustments, for the first quarter of 2014 decreased by $3.2 million to $16.7 million from $19.9 million for the first quarter of 2013. Excluding $1.2 million in external legal and forensic accounting costs related to litigation incurred during the first quarter of 2014, as explained in Table A under "Adjustments to Net Earnings", the net earnings for the first quarter of 2014 decreased to $17.6 million or $0.21 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, in comparison to adjusted net earnings of $19.9 million or $0.24 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, for the first quarter of 2013.

The net earnings for the first quarter of 2014, as compared to the first quarter of 2013, were negatively impacted by the following:

  • program specific launch costs related to new programs that recently launched or are set to launch and ramp up over the next few quarters including the BMW X5, Ford Transit, Ford 2.3 L aluminum engine block, Chrysler 200 and the Lincoln MKC;
  • lower margins as a result of operational inefficiencies at certain operating facilities, in particular, Hopkinsville, Kentucky (as discussed above).
  • year-over-year increases in SG&A expense as previously discussed, research and development expense as a result of increased amortization of development costs and, finance expense related to increased levels of debt used to sustain the increased capital related to new product launches; and
  • a year-over-year decrease in net foreign exchange gain to a net foreign exchange loss during the quarter (included in Other Finance Income and Expense in the Interim Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations).

These factors were partially offset by the following:

  • higher margins from an overall increase in year-over-year production revenues including the launch of new programs subsequent to or during the first quarter 2013, in particular as it relates to the Martinrea Honsel operations;
  • productivity and efficiency improvements at certain operating facilities, in particular the Martinrea Honsel operations in Germany;
  • improved pricing on certain long-term customer contracts in Martinrea Honsel; and
  • a lower effective tax rate due generally to mix of earnings and the utilization of tax losses in Martinrea Honsel not previously benefitted.

The contribution of Martinrea Honsel to net earnings for the first quarter of 2014, after factoring in the interest costs incurred by Martinrea International on the debt issued to finance the acquisition and operations of Martinrea Honsel, increased to $0.12 per share from $0.04 per share in the first quarter of 2013. The increase was generally due to the addition of new incremental aluminum business with Jaguar LandRover, generally higher production volumes in Europe, improved pricing on certain long term customer contracts and ongoing productivity, efficiency improvements at certain facilities, in particular in Germany, and a lower effective tax rate resulting from the utilization of tax losses not previously benefitted.

Additions to Property, Plant and Equipment

Three months ended March 31, 2014 to three months ended March 31, 2013 comparison

Three months ended March 31, 2014 Three months ended March 31, 2013 $ Change % Change
Additions to Property, Plant and Equipment $ 37,051 $ 56,705 (19,654 ) (34.7 %)

Additions to property, plant and equipment decreased by $19.7 million to $37.1 million in the first quarter of 2014 from $56.7 million in the first quarter of 2013. Additions as a percentage of revenue decreased to 4.3% for the first quarter of 2014 compared to 7.4% for the first quarter of 2013. Despite the decrease, while capital expenditures are made to refurbish or replace assets consumed in the normal course of business and for productivity improvements, a large portion of the investment in the first quarter of 2014 continues to be for manufacturing equipment for programs launching over the next 24 months.

DIVIDEND

A cash dividend of $0.03 per share has been declared by the Board of Directors payable to shareholders of record on June 30, 2014 on or about July 15, 2014.
