Shiloh Industries Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

VALLEY CITY, OH--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2012) - Shiloh Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHLO) today reported financial results for the third quarter of its fiscal year ending October 31, 2012.

Third Quarter 2012 Highlights:

  • Sales revenue for the quarter increased to $142.0 million, an increase of 10.8% from last year's third quarter sales revenue of $128.2 million.
  • Gross margin for the quarter improved over 31% to $12.2 million or 8.6% of sales revenue compared to gross margin of $9.3 million or 7.2% of sales revenue in the prior year's quarter.
  • Adjusted operating income (1), before impairment and restructuring charges, improved over 53% and reached $5.3 million or 3.7% of sales revenue, up from the $3.4 million operating income or 2.7% of sales revenue, before impairment and restructuring charges in the prior year's quarter.
  • The Company recorded an impairment charge of $1.9 million or $0.08 per share diluted, net of taxes as a result of reducing the Mansfield Blanking facility to its estimated fair value in preparation for selling the facility. 
  • Net income of $0.14 per share diluted for the quarter compared to net income of $0.10 per share diluted in the prior year quarter. 
  • Total debt at July 31, 2012 was $27.4 million resulting in a net debt to total capitalization ratio of 19.9%.

Sales for the third quarter ended July 31, 2012 were $142.0 million, an increase of 10.8% from $128.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. The North American car and light truck industry production volumes increased by 24.9% compared to the third quarter of 2011 led by an 80% recovery by the traditional Japanese manufacturers, as they rebounded from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. For the traditional domestic manufacturers, the Company's major customers, their production volumes increased by 7.7%. The Company's sales revenue surpassed the increase in the traditional domestic manufacturers' volume as a result of a favorable mix of vehicle platforms and the impact of new programs launched since the third quarter of the prior year. Sales were slightly impacted by a reduction in the heavy truck industry that the Company also serves compared to the prior year.

Before the charges for impairment and restructuring, the Company reported adjusted operating income (1) of $5.3 million or 3.7% of sales in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 compared to operating income, before impairment and restructuring charges of $3.4 million or 2.7% of sales in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. The improvement in operating performance reflects the increase in sales revenue resulting in a favorable impact to our operating leverage, quality and productivity improvements and our continued focus on improvements in our Manufacturing and Selling, General and Administrative costs.

Interest expense for the third quarter of the fiscal year was $0.4 million compared to $0.3 million in the prior year third quarter.

During the third quarter, the Company entered into negotiations to sell its Mansfield Blanking facility, which ceased operations in December 2011. As a result, the Company recorded an asset impairment charge of $1.9 million, or $0.08 per share diluted, net of taxes representing the reduction of the real and personal property to its estimated fair value.

The Company reported net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 of $2.4 million or $0.14 per share diluted, after the impairment and restructuring charges, net of recoveries, compared to the third quarter of 2011 net income of $1.7 million or $0.10 per share diluted. Excluding the impairment charges for the Mansfield Blanking facility, the Company earned $3.7 million in adjusted net income (1) or $0.22 per share diluted.

First Nine Months 2012 Results:
The Company's operating income improved over 64% to $16.8 million compared to an operating income of $10.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal year 2011. Net income for the first nine months of fiscal year 2012 improved over 75% to $9.9 million or $0.59 per share diluted as compared to $5.6 million or $0.33 per share diluted in the prior year. The improvement reflects the increase in sales volume of $63.2 million, or 16.9%, to $437.2 million for the first nine months of fiscal year 2012 from $374.0 million in the prior year along with the lower cost structure the Company's continues to maintain. 

In commenting on the results of the third quarter of fiscal 2012, Theodore K. Zampetis, President and CEO, said, "The fiscal year 2012 continues to evolve as we expected as the automotive build levels in North America continue to show improvement and are currently forecasted to be around 14.9 million units, a level not experienced since before our fiscal 2007. As the vehicle build levels return to pre-crisis levels, our improved operating leverage is reflected in our gross profit margin of 8.6% for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to 7.2% in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, as a result of our continued focus on effective cost management and Six Sigma driven productivity and quality improvements."

Mr. Zampetis concluded, "With the forecasted continued improvement in vehicle production levels in North America for our fourth quarter of 2012 and into fiscal 2013, our focus remains on our key strategic priorities of advanced technology developments in our new product and process innovations, sales and new business development, optimizing our strategic footprint and continued optimization of our manufacturing operations and overall operating excellence."

Headquartered in Valley City, Ohio, Shiloh Industries is a leading manufacturer of first operation blanks, engineered welded blanks, complex stampings and modular assemblies for the automotive and heavy truck industries. The Company has 14 wholly owned subsidiaries at locations in Ohio, Georgia, Michigan, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Mexico, and employs approximately 1,400.

Agreement to Sell the Mansfield Blanking facility:
The Company entered into an agreement on August 17, 2012 to sell the real property and building associated with the Mansfield Blanking facility for $1.4 million, with an anticipated fourth quarter closing date. The sale of the Mansfield Blanking facility will generate $1.4 million in cash in the fourth quarter and will stop on-going operating costs associated with maintaining an idle building.
