Shiloh Industries Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results

VALLEY CITY, OH--(Marketwire - May 27, 2011) - Shiloh Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHLO) today reported financial results for the second quarter of its fiscal year ending October 31, 2011.

Second Quarter 2011 Highlights

  • Sales revenue for the quarter increased to $137.0 million, an increase of 16.3% from the prior year quarter.
  • Operating income for the quarter was $5.8 million compared to operating income of $5.7 million in the prior year quarter.
  • Net income of $0.20 per share diluted compared to a net income of $0.19 per share diluted in the prior year second quarter.
  • On April 19, 2011, the Company entered into an amended and restated Credit and Security Agreement for $80.0 million with an improved effective interest rate and a maturity date of April 2016.
  • Net debt to total capitalization ratio of 23.5% as of April 30, 2011.
  • The Bowling Green, Kentucky plant facility started operations in April 2011 as planned.

Sales for the second quarter ended April 30, 2011 were $137.0 million, an increase of 16.3% from $117.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010. The increase in sales revenue reflects the year over year improvement of industry volume, new programs launched and conquest business awarded since last year's second quarter. During the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, the car and light truck production volumes of the North American automotive industry increased by 10.7%, while the production of the traditional domestic manufacturers improved by 18.2%, over the second quarter of fiscal year 2010. The heavy truck market that the Company supplies, also exhibited improvement in demand.

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, the Company reported operating income of $5.8 million or 4.2% of sales compared to $5.7 million or 4.9% of sales in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 and net income of $3.4 million or $0.20 per share diluted as compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 net income of $3.1 million or $0.19 per share diluted. Manufacturing expenses increased in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 as compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 as a result of the anticipated increase in payroll and benefit expenses, which were restored to pre-crisis levels, and the increased labor costs associated with the improved activity levels in preparation for new program launches and increased production volumes. The Selling, General and Administrative costs in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 declined as a percentage of sales compared to the levels experienced during the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.

Interest expense for the quarter was $0.5 million compared to $0.9 million in the second quarter of the prior year due to a reduction in the level of average borrowed funds and the impact of both the Fifth Amendment to the Credit Agreement and the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement entered into on September 1, 2010 and April 19, 2011 respectively, both of which lowered the average borrowing rate compared to the prior year second quarter.

First Six Months 2011 Results
Operating income for the first six months of fiscal year 2011 was $7.0 million compared to an operating income of $6.2 million in the first six months of fiscal year 2010. Net income for the first six months of fiscal year 2011 was $4.0 million or $0.23 per share diluted as compared to $2.6 million or $0.15 per share diluted in the prior year. The improvement reflects the increase in sales volume of $30.1 million, or 14.0%, to sales for the first six months of fiscal year 2011 of $245.8 million from $215.7 million in the prior year.

Interest expense was reduced by $1.3 million from the prior year levels due to a reduction in the level of average borrowed funds and lower average borrowing rates in the first six months of fiscal year 2011 as compared to the first six months of fiscal year 2010.

In commenting on the results of the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, Theodore K. Zampetis, President and CEO, said, "We were happy to see the continued improvement in vehicle build levels in North America during our second quarter, both in the car and light truck as well as the heavy truck industries. The impact of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami was significant in April and affected the production plans of several of our customers who have curtailed their vehicle assembly operations. In spite of this, our management team stayed focused on executing our plans for continuously improving our overall quality and productivity, launching our new facility in Bowling Green, KY, preparing for our new program launches and reinforcing our skills and processes to meet the requirements of an improved automotive cycle, while maintaining our strong balance sheet."

Mr. Zampetis concluded, "Moving forward we are continuing our sharp focus on growing our top and bottom lines through our emphasis on innovative product leadership, customer loyalty, and our passion for operating excellence."
