Accuride Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results
·
Net loss of $28.6 million, or a negative $0.59 per share
·
Net loss from continuing operations of $6.8 million, or a negative $0.14 per share
·
Net sales from continuing operations of $125.2 million, down 14.0 percent from the third quarter of 2015

EVANSVILLE, Ind. November 1, 2016 Accuride Corporation (NYSE: ACW) ("Accuride" or the "Company") a leading supplier of components to the North American and European commercial vehicle industries today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Third Quarter 2016 Results
Third quarter 2016 net sales were $125.2 million, which represented a decrease of $20.5 million, or 14.0 percent, compared with net sales of $145.7 million for the third quarter of 2015. The decrease was driven by $24.5 million from lower-than-anticipated demand for wheels and brake drums in North America, and $4.3 million in pricing that was primarily related to the pass-through of lower raw material costs. Partially offsetting the decrease was an $8.3 million increase in net sales from Gianetti Ruote, in which Accuride took a majority stake in November 2015.

Accuride's operating income was $1.5 million, down $9.6 million compared to operating income of $11.1 million in the third quarter of 2015. This was primarily due to the incremental margin loss on the lower product demand, which was partially offset by lower corporate spending. The Company reported a net loss of $28.6 million, or a negative $0.59 per share, including a loss from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $21.9 million related to the sale of the Brillion Iron Works subsidiary during the third quarter. The Company's net loss from continuing operations attributable to shareholders was $6.8 million, or a negative $0.14 per share, compared to net income of $5.4 million, or $0.11 per share, in the third quarter of 2015. Third quarter Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $13.5 million, or 10.8 percent of net sales, compared to $21.6 million, or 14.8 percent of net sales, in the same quarter of 2015.

Third Quarter Business Segment Results

Wheels
Wheels segment net sales were $90.9 million, down $10.9 million, or 10.7 percent, from the same period in 2015. The third quarter of 2016 included $8.3 million in net sales from Gianetti. Excluding Gianetti, Wheels segment net sales were down $19.2 million, or 18.9 percent, from the same period in 2015. This decrease was primarily related to lower production volume from North American OEM customers and reduced aftermarket customer demand totaling $15.3 million, plus the pass-through of lower material costs of $3.9 million. Wheels' Adjusted EBITDA was $14.7 million, a decrease of $7.7 million, or 34.3 percent, from the third quarter of 2015.

Gunite
Gunite segment net sales were $34.3 million, down $9.5 million, or 21.7 percent, from the third quarter of 2015. This decrease is largely attributable to lower North American Class 8 OEM production and reduced aftermarket demand totaling $9.1 million, coupled with the pass-through of lower material costs of $0.4 million. Gunite's Adjusted EBITDA was $4.9 million, a decrease of $1.6 million, or 24.7 percent, from the third quarter of 2015.

Liquidity and Debt
As of September 30, 2016, total debt was $318.1 million, consisting of $305.8 million of the outstanding 9.5% senior secured notes, net of discount and debt issuance costs, and $12.3 million in debt obligations related to the Company's majority stake in Gianetti. As of September 30, 2016, Accuride had $27.0 million of cash and $37.0 million in availability under its ABL Credit Facility for total liquidity of $64.0 million. Cash included $11.7 million in net proceeds from the sale of Brillion.

In light of the previously announced merger agreement pursuant to which Accuride is to be acquired by affiliates of Crestview Partners, Accuride will not be hosting a conference call to discuss its third quarter 2016 financial results.
