Shiloh Industries Reports First Quarter 2012 Results

VALLEY CITY, OH--(Marketwire - Feb 22, 2012) - Shiloh Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHLO) today reported financial results for the first quarter of its fiscal year ending October 31, 2012.

First Quarter Highlights:

  • Sales revenue for the quarter increased to $132.4 million, an increase of 21.7% from the prior year quarter.
  • Operating income for the quarter increased to $3.1 million, an increase of 142.8% from the prior year quarter.
  • Net income of $0.09 per share diluted for the quarter compared to a net income of $0.03 per share diluted in the prior year quarter.
  • Total debt at January 31, 2012 was $28.2 million resulting in a net debt to total capitalization ratio of 20.5%.
  • On January 31, 2012, the Company entered into a First Amendment Agreement of its Credit and Security Agreement with a modification to the calculation of the fixed charge coverage ratio to allow for payment of a special dividend of $0.50 per share declared on February 1, 2012 and other modifications to allow the Company to participate in certain customer-sponsored financing arrangements allowing for early, discounted payments of Company invoices.

Sales for the first quarter ended January 31, 2012 were $132.4 million, an increase of 21.7% from $108.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011. The North American car and light truck industry production volumes increased by 16.9% compared to the first quarter of the prior year, while the production of the traditional domestic manufacturers' production volumes increased by 19.4%. The Company's sales revenue increased above the industry statistics due to a favorable mix of vehicle platforms, the impact of new programs launched since the first quarter of the prior year and an increase in the heavy truck market that the Company also supplies.

The Company reported operating income of $3.1 million or 2.3% of sales in the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 compared to $1.3 million or 1.2% of sales in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011. Continued focus and improvements in our Manufacturing and Selling, General and Administrative costs, along with the increased sales volume, helped the Company achieve these improved results.

Interest expense for the first quarter of the fiscal year was $0.3 million compared to $0.5 million in the prior year first quarter as a result of a reduction in average borrowing rates from the Company's amended and restated Credit Agreement entered into in April 2011.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 was $1.6 million or $0.09 per share diluted compared to the first quarter of 2011 net income of $0.5 million or $0.03 per share diluted.

In commenting on the results of first quarter 2012, Theodore K. Zampetis, President and CEO, said, "The first quarter of our fiscal year 2012 evolved as expected, with improved vehicle production schedules in both the automotive and heavy truck industries. As the vehicle build levels improve, so does our operating leverage and our focused and consistent execution on accelerating the improvement of our operating efficiencies, cash generation and profitable growth opportunities."

Mr. Zampetis concluded, "As we move forward we like what we see so far in terms of industry trends and vehicle demand in North America for 2012 and beyond. We are optimistic in the prospects of our new product and process innovations, strategic footprint, customer relationships and remain sharply focused on disciplined execution."
