Martinrea International Inc.: Releases September 30, 2005 Third Quarter Results Solid Earnings in a Tough Automotive Environment

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 10, 2005) - 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 fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2005.

Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 totaled $161.4 million as compared to $125.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2004, a 29% increase year over year. Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 have increased from the prior year comparables primarily due to the launch of new programs in the third quarter of 2005 such as the new metallic gas tank for the Ford Fusion that launched in August 2005, the fuel and brake bundle for the GM Impala that launched in July 2005, the hydroformed engine cradle and metallic assemblies for the new Cadillac DTS that launched in August 2005, and the inclusion of the revenues of the Company's recently acquired metal forming facility in Corydon, Indiana. In addition, the Company launched the hydroformed engine cradle and metallic assemblies for the Buick Lucerne in October 2005. The increase in revenues from new programs was offset by the appreciation of the Canadian dollar versus the U.S. dollar resulting in a reduction in revenue of approximately $3.6 million, and lower volumes on some existing customer platforms. Incremental production sales were also offset by customer pricing pressures that continue to be a normal part of the North American automotive parts industry. Production revenues are expected to continue to rise as new programs mature and launches are completed.

Gross margin percentage for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 was 16.7% as compared to 15.9% in the third quarter of 2004. Gross margin percentage for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 has increased in comparison to the prior year third quarter despite the pressure on gross margins from contractual price reductions with customers and steel surcharges on part of the Company's steel purchases not on customer steel re-sale programs. The Company has been able to increase gross margin due to ongoing cost reduction plans and the successful launching of new programs during the last twelve months that have helped to fill available capacity.

Net earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 were approximately $4.56 million as compared to $0.97 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2004. The earnings per share for the quarter were $0.08 on a basic and diluted basis, as compared to $0.02 on a basic and diluted basis for the prior year comparable. The increase in net earnings from the prior year comparable is primarily attributable to increased revenues and improved gross margin. The increase in net earnings was offset by the appreciation of the Canadian dollar versus the U.S. dollar resulting in a reduction in net earnings of approximately $0.6 million.

Net earnings and diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2005 decreased compared to net earnings of $6.1 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.11 for the second quarter of 2005. This decrease is due primarily to the reduction of revenue from the traditional July shut down period and the payment of $0.4M of interest on an after tax basis in regards to the payment of an outstanding earn-out amount relating to the purchase in 2001 of the Alfield facility by a predecessor of the Company.

Amortization expense was $7.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 as compared to $6.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2004. The amortization expense in the Company's second quarter of 2005 was $6.9 million. The increase in amortization from the prior year and prior quarter comparables is attributable to amortization of capital assets that are now production ready.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 were $10.9 million, or 6.8% of revenues, compared to $9.9 million, or 7.9% of revenues, for the quarter ended September 30, 2004. As the Company's revenues grow these expenses as a percentage of revenues will decrease. The corporate infrastructure that the Company has established can accommodate significant future revenue growth.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2005 decreased compared to $11.9 million for the second quarter of 2005 due to the one-time charges for the restructuring of one of the Company's Canadian plants that were incurred in the second quarter of 2005.

Capital expenditures for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 totaled $3.7 million. Capital expenditures for the nine months ended September 30, 2005 totaled $20.0 million. The capital expenditures in the third quarter of 2005 relate primarily to new program assembly equipment being put in place for programs launching. For the full year 2005, the Company plans to spend approximately $30 to $32 million, primarily on new program capital.

The Company's financial condition remains strong given the continuing profitability of its operations and its prospects for growth and new program launches. The Company had a strong balance sheet as at September 30, 2005, with shareholders equity of $460.0 million, as compared to $449.1 million as at December 31, 2004. The Company's working capital of $32.6 million together with internally generated cash flow and existing financing facilities should be sufficient to cover anticipated cash needs.

Fred Jaekel, Martinrea's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "I am extremely pleased with the progress our Company has made in this quarter and the year to date. In 2005 the Company will record its highest ever level of sales and profitability. We have seen year over year improvement in revenues, profits and profitability, despite a very tough automotive environment. I am pleased to announce that the Company has been awarded approximately $35 million of incremental business in the third quarter of 2005. The incremental new business awards that launch in 2007 consist of metallic assemblies totaling $30 million and fluid management products totaling $5 million. As at September 30, 2005, Martinrea's ratio of current assets to current liabilities was 1.2:1, which is consistent with the prior year end and the second quarter of 2005. Among the metallic assemblies we are very pleased that we have won our first program for the replacement to the Cadillac CTS amounting to $14 million and an additional $9 million on the GMT900. Further inroads are also being made with Daimler Chrysler. The Company has been awarded metal contracts for the JS27 and KA totaling $7.8 million."

Mr. Jaekel added, "Our operations continue to improve and perform well overall. In the third quarter and since our last release, our launches have been going well, and I am very proud of the efforts of our people overall and with our launches. Our performance in these areas means we are becoming a supplier of choice for our customers and we are seeing increasing opportunities constantly. Taking advantage of the right opportunities will help us to grow prudently and profitably. To give you a sense of upcoming launches, the Company will launch at different times in 2006 new programs that will approximate $183 million on an annualized basis once full production is achieved. The Company will have incremental business of approximately $147 million annualized on the GMT900 that launches in December 2005 for the GMT900 SUV followed by the GMT900 pick-up truck in October 2006. This work is in addition to existing GMT800 work manufactured by the Company, which is carrying forward to the GMT900. The Company will also be launching approximately $29 million annualized for Daimler Chrysler on such vehicles as the RT Minivan, Dodge Nitro, Jeep Wrangler, Pacifica, and the D-Segment. Additional incremental business of approximately $7 million has also been won for the Ford F250 and F350."

Nick Orlando, Martinrea's Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer, stated: "The Company's financial performance continues to improve. The Company's investments in equipment, facilities and personnel have allowed the Company to take advantage of the restructuring occurring in the automotive parts industry. New business awards continue to fill available capacity and as a result the Company's profitability has improved. The Company is constantly looking for ways to enhance its competitiveness. The Company's cost structure is always under review."

Nick Orlando added: "The Company has decided to close two facilities in the fourth quarter of 2005. One metal forming facility will be combined with another of the Company's metal forming facilities. This merging of facilities will result in operational savings and the transfer of many experienced personnel that will further enhance capability in other Martinrea facilities. Moving costs and equipment write-downs will be approximately $0.5 million after tax that will be expensed in the fourth quarter of 2005. The Company will also close the facility in the Netherlands as of December 31, 2005. As is the case in most Western European countries high labour costs have made this plant uncompetitive as automotive parts production moves to Eastern Europe. The closure of this plant will contribute to earnings in 2006. The facility will lose approximately $2.8 million on an after tax basis in 2005 from operations. In addition the Company will incur an after tax cash cost of $0.9 million for employee severance and a $1.1 million after-tax write down of equipment in the fourth quarter of 2005. The one time costs of closing these facilities of $2.5 million after tax will result in an approximate $0.05 reduction of earnings per share on a basic and fully diluted basis in the fourth quarter of 2005. In the fourth quarter of 2005, the Company estimates that revenues will range from $155 million to $170 million. Earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2005 will range from $0.06 to $0.08 earnings per share on a basic and fully diluted basis, after the one time write-downs. In absence of the plant moving and closing costs the earnings per share from continuing operations would range from $0.11 to $0.13 per share. This will be a significant improvement over the prior year."

Rob Wildeboer, Martinrea's Chairman, stated: "We are pleased with our performance in 2005 so far. I think we are showing prudent, profitable growth. However, as a company we remain very focused on the future and building for revenue and earnings growth over time. Improving financial performance, in a very tough environment, is a reflection, we believe, of our entrepreneurial and decentralized structure and the fact that we are meeting customer needs by providing great products at competitive prices. Our balance sheet continues to strengthen in this environment, which provides us a strong base to pursue the right kinds of opportunities for our company and our people. The best way to provide security and opportunity for our people is to be successful in the marketplace. Our improving financial position gives us the opportunity to consider new business opportunities that many of our heavily indebted competitors are not able to undertake. Where we can, we will continue to pay down debt and strengthen our financial position but we will take advantage of that financial position and those opportunities where we can."

"The present automotive environment is choppy" Mr. Wildeboer added, "and events such as the Delphi bankruptcy process have created uncertainty. While any direct exposure we have to Delphi is minimal and has been protected, we are mindful of the potentially negative implications of supplier and OEM distress. At the same time, we are seeing opportunities to buy assets, perform takeover work, or look at other situations where we can help our customers, and we are doing so. As an example of an opportunity, we recently bought two 2500 ton transfer presses at extremely competitive prices that will give the Company significant additional capacity that can be marketed to our customers. We will look carefully, and we will act where prudent and profitable."

9. Guarantees

The Company is a guarantor under a tool financing program. The tool financing program involves a third party that provides tooling suppliers with financing subject to a Company guarantee. Payments from the third party to the tooling supplier are approved by the Company prior to the funds being advanced. The amounts loaned to tooling suppliers through this financing arrangement do not appear on the Company's balance sheet. At September 30, 2005, the amount of program financing was $3.6 million. The maximum amount of undiscounted future payments the Company could be required to make under the guarantee is $3.6 million. The Company would be required to perform under the guarantee in cases where a tooling supplier could not meet its obligation to the third party.

The term of the guarantee will vary from program to program, but typically ranges between 6-18 months.
