Federal-Mogul Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2016 Results

  • Fourth quarter net sales of $1.8 billion, full-year net sales of $7.4 billion
  • Full-year net income from continuing operations attributable to Federal-Mogul of $82 million compared to net loss of $117 million in 2015
  • Full-year Operational EBITDA of $744 million compared to $644 million in 2015

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Feb. 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Federal-Mogul Holdings LLC today announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016.  Net sales for the fourth quarter were $1,788 million, compared to $1,798 million in Q4 2015.  Higher original equipment sales in both divisions, as well as incremental sales from the Interfil® and Beck Arnley® acquisitions, were offset by lower aftermarket sales in North America which primarily reflected the exiting of certain business and weak demand in the North American commercial vehicle market.  The Q4 net sales comparison also includes $27 million of negative impact from currency exchange rate fluctuations.  Net income from continuing operations attributable to Federal-Mogul in the quarter was $1 million compared with a net loss from continuing operations attributable to Federal-Mogul of $58 million in Q4 2015.  Adjusted net income in Q4 2016 was $16 million.  Operational EBITDA in Q4 2016 was $182 million, or 10.2 percent of net sales, compared to $164 million, or 9.1 percent of net sales, in Q4 2015.  The Company ended the year with liquidity of over $500 million, including cash of $300 million and $213 million of availability under its primary revolving credit facility.

For the full-year ended December 31, 2016, net sales were $7,434 million, a $15 million increase compared with the prior-year period.  Sales from acquired businesses, as well as higher organic OE sales in both divisions were largely offset by $107 million of negative impact from currency exchange rate fluctuations.  Net income from continuing operations attributable to Federal-Mogul for the full-year 2016 was $82 million compared with a net loss from continuing operations attributable to Federal-Mogul of $117 million in 2015.  Adjusted net income for full-year 2016 was $141 million.  Operational EBITDA for full-year 2016 was $744 million, or 10.0 percent of net sales, up $100 million, or 16 percent, compared to 2015, including a $12 million negative impact from currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Division Results

Powertrain Division

Federal-Mogul’s Powertrain division reported fourth quarter revenue of $1,074 million, compared to $1,066 million in the same prior-year period, driven by an increase in overall sales volume, specifically strengthened sales in Asia Pacific.  The increase in sales was negatively impacted by $14 million in currency exchange rate fluctuations.

At constant exchange rates, Q4 2016 sales were up 2.1 percent over Q4 2015, partially offset by continued production declines in the commercial vehicle and industrial segments and the impact of economic conditions in Brazil. Operational EBITDA in Q4 was $115 million, or 10.7 percent of revenue, a $10 million improvement compared to $105 million, or 9.8 percent of revenue, in Q4 2015.

For full-year 2016, the Powertrain division reported revenue of $4,463 million, $13 million higher than in 2015. The year-over-year comparison was impacted by $57 million of negative currency exchange. In constant dollars, revenue increased by $70 million or 1.6 percent.  Operational EBITDA for full-year 2016 was $473 million, or 10.6 percent of revenue, compared to $428 million, or 9.6 percent of revenue, in the prior year, largely driven by improved operational performance in material sourcing, manufacturing and overall cost management.

Motorparts Division

Federal-Mogul’s Motorparts division reported fourth quarter revenue of $769 million, a $23 million, or 3 percent, decrease from the prior-year period, including $13 million of negative impact from currency exchange rate fluctuations.  North American aftermarket sales decreased by 4 percent in the quarter, at constant exchange, representing most of the year-over-year decline.  The decline was due primarily to the exiting of certain business, weak demand in the North American commercial vehicle market, and lower export sales from North America, primarily to the Middle East.  North American sales benefitted from $8 million of incremental sales from the Interfil and Beck Arnley acquisitions.  Sales in EMEA decreased to $278 million from $284 million in the same period last year.  Stronger OE volume in the region was largely offset by lower aftermarket sales in certain European countries and in the Middle East.  Asia Pacific sales were $67 million compared to $62 million in Q4 2015.  A 27 percent increase in OE business and continued growth in the China aftermarket (up 40 percent), each at constant exchange rates, were partially offset by lower sales in India due to the impact of the government’s de-monetization policy as well as the planned downsizing of operations in Australia.  

In Q4 2016, the Motorparts division recorded Operational EBITDA of $67 million, or 8.7 percent of revenue, compared to $59 million, or 7.4 percent of revenue, in Q4 2015. The increase in Operational EBITDA was largely due to improved operational performance and the non-recurrence of a bad debt charge in Q4 2015, partially offset by the impact of lower volumes.

For the full-year 2016, the Motorparts division recorded revenue of $3,215 million compared to $3,253 million in the prior-year period, including $50 million of negative impact from currency exchange rate fluctuations.  EBITDA was $271 million, or 8.4 percent of revenue, for full-year 2016 compared to $216 million, or 6.6 percent of revenue, in 2015.

Reconciliation to GAAP

In addition to GAAP results included within this press release, the Company has provided certain information which is not calculated according to GAAP (“non-GAAP”), such as sales at constant exchange rates, this measure excludes the effect of currency exchange on current year results; Operational EBITDA; and Adjusted Net Income. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of the Company and its business segments and to forecast future periods.  Management believes that investors will likewise find these non-GAAP measures useful in evaluating such performance. Such measures are frequently used by security analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.

Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measure, please see the financial schedules that accompany this release.

Management utilizes Operational EBITDA as the key performance measure of segment profitability and uses the measure in its financial and operational decision making processes; for internal reporting; and for planning and forecasting purposes to effectively allocate resources. Operational EBITDA is defined as EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), as adjusted for additional amounts. Examples of these adjustments include impairment charges related to goodwill, other long-lived assets, and investments; restructuring charges, certain gains or losses on the settlement/extinguishment of obligations; and receivable financing charges. During 2015, the Company modified its definition of Operational EBITDA to adjust for financing charges related to certain receivable financing programs. Comparable periods have been adjusted to conform to this definition.

Operational EBITDA presents a performance measure exclusive of capital structure and the method by which net assets were acquired, disposed of, or financed. Management believes this measure provides additional transparency into its core operations and is most reflective of the operational profitability or loss of the Company’s operating segments and reporting units. The measure also allows management and investors to view operating trends, perform analytical comparisons and benchmark performance between periods and among operating segments.
