Shiloh Industries Reports Third Quarter 2011 Results

VALLEY CITY, OH--(Marketwire - Aug 25, 2011) - Shiloh Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHLO) today reported financial results for the third quarter of its fiscal year ending October 31, 2011.

Third Quarter and Year to Date 2011 Highlights:

  • Sales revenue for the quarter increased to $128.2 million, an increase of 11.6% from the prior year quarter. Year to date, sales revenues were $374.0 million, a 13.1% increase over the prior year.
  • Operating income was $3.2 million for the quarter and $10.2 million year to date.
  • Net debt to total capitalization ratio of 22.6% as of July 31, 2011.
  • The Company recorded a one-time restructuring charge of $0.35 million for the impact of the severance agreement related to the previously announced closure of the Mansfield facility. Additionally, a one-time discrete tax item was recorded in the quarter. The combined impact of these one-time items are $0.03 per share diluted.
  • Reported net income of $0.10 per share diluted for the quarter. Year to date net income was $0.33 per share diluted compared to $0.28 per share diluted in the prior year.

Sales for the third quarter ended July 31, 2011 were $128.2 million, an increase of $13.3 million or 11.6% from last year's third quarter sales of $114.9. Sales revenue increased as a result of the year over year improvement in the overall North American car and light truck production volumes of 1.0%. The traditional domestic manufacturers' production increased by 10.6% over the third quarter of 2010. The Company's sales surpassed the industry statistics due to a higher concentration of sales tied to the traditional domestic manufactures, new programs launched since last year's third quarter, conquest business awards and an increase in our heavy truck business.

The Company reported operating income, after a one-time restructuring charge of $0.35 million, of $3.2 million or 2.5% of sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 as compared to $4.0 million or 3.5% of sales in the prior year third quarter. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011, which includes a one-time discrete tax item of $0.22 million, was $1.7 million or $0.10 per share diluted as compared to net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2010 of $2.0 million or $0.12 per share diluted. The Manufacturing and Selling, General and Administrative costs increased in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 as expected, compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2010 as a result of the implemented increase in payroll and benefit expenses, which were restored to pre-crisis levels, and the increased labor costs associated with the higher production volumes, preparation for new program launches, the phase out of the Company's Mansfield facility and the start-up costs related to the Company's Bowling Green facility.

Interest expense was $0.3 million for the quarter compared to $0.9 million in the third quarter of the prior year due to a reduction in the level of average borrowed funds and the impact of the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement entered into on April 19, 2011, which lowered the average borrowing rate compared to the prior year third quarter.

First Nine Months 2011 Results
Sales for the first nine months of fiscal year 2011 were $374.0 million, which reflects an increase of $43.4 million or 13.1% as compared to the first nine months of the prior year. The restoration of wage and benefits increased Manufacturing and Selling, General and Administrative costs by $2.9 million compared to the prior year. Operating income for the first nine months of fiscal year 2011 was $10.2 million compared to an operating income of $10.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal year 2010. Net income for the first nine months of fiscal year 2011 was $5.6 million or $0.33 per share diluted as compared to $4.6 million or $0.28 per share diluted in the prior year.

Interest expense was reduced by $1.9 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 nine months of fiscal year 2011 as compared to the first nine months of fiscal year 2010.

In commenting on the results of the third quarter of fiscal year 2011, Theodore K. Zampetis, President and CEO, said "The automotive build levels in North America in both the car and light truck market continue to show year over year improvement with the growth year to date primarily in the traditional domestic manufacturers which is contributing to our growth in sales along with new program launches and new business for our Bowling Green, KY facility. However, the impact on certain new domestic automakers' production schedules in our third quarter was severe as a result of the March natural disaster disruptions in Japan. We are pleased to see their production schedules are gradually recovering in the current quarter."

Mr. Zampetis concluded, "With the forecasted continued improvement in automotive build levels for our fourth quarter 2011 and fiscal 2012, our focus remains on our key strategic priorities of advanced technology developments in product and process innovation, sales and new business development, and continued optimization of our manufacturing operations and overall operating excellence."
