Dana Incorporated Announces First-quarter

2018 Financial Results with Significant Revenue Growth, Affirms Full-year Guidance Increase

Highlights

 

    Sales of $2.1 billion, an increase of $437 million, growth of 26 percent

 

    Net income attributable to Dana of $108 million; diluted EPS of $0.73

 

    Adjusted EBITDA of $248 million, an increase of $43 million providing a margin of 11.6 percent

 

    Diluted adjusted EPS of $0.75, an improvement of 19 percent over first quarter of last year

MAUMEE, Ohio, Apr. 30, 2018 – Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) today announced strong financial results for the first quarter of 2018 and affirmed full-year 2018 guidance.

“In the first quarter, Dana’s sales growth outperformed the market with 26 percent higher revenue, including 17 percent organic growth,” said James Kamsickas, Dana president and chief executive officer. “First-quarter sales were more than $2 billion resulting in the strongest sales quarter we have realized in nearly a decade. Our intense focus on customer satisfaction and bringing our backlog to market is helping to drive outstanding results and further position Dana for future growth.”

First-quarter 2018 Financial Results

Sales for the first quarter of 2018 totaled $2.14 billion, compared with $1.70 billion in the same period of 2017, representing a 26 percent increase. The increase was mainly due to higher demand across all three end markets, conversion of sales backlog, and favorable foreign currency translation.

Dana reported net income of $108 million for the first quarter of 2018, compared with net income of $75 million in the same period of 2017, due to increased operating earnings associated with higher sales.

Diluted earnings per share were $0.73, compared with earnings per share of $0.51 in 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2018 was $248 million, a $43 million increase over the same period last year, driven by higher end-market demand and conversion of the sales backlog, as well as earnings from acquisitions completed in the first quarter of 2017. The strong first-quarter earnings performance was achieved while completing the production launch for one of the company’s largest programs, the new Jeep® Wrangler.

Diluted adjusted earnings per share were $0.75 in the first quarter of 2018, compared with $0.63 in the same period last year, reflecting the higher year-over-year earnings improvement.

Operating cash flow in the first quarter of 2018 was a use of $28 million, compared with a source of $11 million in the same period of 2017. Higher working-capital requirements to meet increased demand and incentive compensation payouts in the quarter offset the benefit of higher earnings and lower one-time costs. With new program investment requirements beginning to dissipate, capital expenditures in this year’s first three months declined by $31 million from last year’s first quarter. As a result, free cash flow was a use of $93 million this quarter, compared with a use of $85 million in 2017.

Company Affirms 2018 Guidance

Improved end-market demand for key light-truck programs, off-highway equipment, and commercial vehicles, combined with sales from the new-business backlog, are driving an expected 10 percent growth in sales for 2018. Increased sales from the new-business backlog are expected to add approximately $300 million, and improved end-market demand is expected to accrete $200 million. Foreign currency translation will add an additional $150 million to the year-over-year sales comparison.

Adjusted EBITDA in 2018 is expected to improve by approximately $145 million from 2017, or 80 basis points. This improvement is driven primarily by higher sales levels, ongoing efficiency benefits, and enhanced acquisition synergies.

“Last month we raised our full-year guidance on the strength of our end markets and currency tailwinds. Our success this quarter is a result of those factors, as well as the conversion of our new business backlog. With the launch of the Jeep Wrangler program behind us and continued execution of our synergy plan related to recent acquisitions, we are confident in our outlook for 2018 and continued growth in 2019,” said Jonathan Collins, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Dana.

2018 Full-year Financial Targets

 

    Sales of $7.75 to $8.05 billion;

 

    Adjusted EBITDA of $950 to $1,010 million, an implied adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 12.4 percent;

 

    Diluted adjusted EPS1 of $2.75 to $3.05;

 

    Operating cash flow of approximately 7.5 percent of sales;

 

    Capital spending of approximately 4.0 percent of sales; and

 

    Free cash flow of approximately 3.5 percent of sales.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This release refers to adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure which we have defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, equity grant expense, restructuring expense, non-service cost components of pension and other postretirement benefit costs and other adjustments not related to our core operations (gain/loss on debt extinguishment, pension settlements, divestitures, impairment, etc.). Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of our ability to maintain and continue to invest in our operations and provide shareholder returns. We use adjusted EBITDA in assessing the effectiveness of our business strategies, evaluating and pricing potential acquisitions and as a factor in making incentive compensation decisions. In addition to its use by management, we also believe adjusted EBITDA is a measure widely used by securities analysts, investors, and others to evaluate financial performance of our company relative to other Tier 1 automotive suppliers. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for income before income taxes, net income or other results reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Diluted adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure, which we have defined as adjusted net income divided by adjusted diluted shares. We define adjusted net income as net income (loss) attributable to the parent company, excluding any nonrecurring income tax items, restructuring charges, amortization expense, and other adjustments not related to our core operations (as used in adjusted EBITDA), net of any associated income tax effects. We define adjusted diluted shares as diluted shares as determined in accordance with GAAP based on adjusted net income. This measure is considered useful for purposes of providing investors, analysts, and other interested parties with an indicator of ongoing financial performance that provides enhanced comparability to EPS reported by other companies. Diluted adjusted EPS is neither intended to represent nor be an alternative measure to diluted EPS reported under GAAP.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure, which we have defined as cash provided by (used in) operating activities, less purchases of property, plant, and equipment. We believe this measure is useful to investors in evaluating the operational cash flow of the company inclusive of the spending required to maintain the operations.

Free cash flow is neither intended to represent nor be an alternative to the measure of net cash provided by (used in) operating activities reported under GAAP. Free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

The accompanying financial information provides reconciliations of adjusted EBITDA, diluted adjusted EPS and free cash flow to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We have not provided a reconciliation of our adjusted EBITDA and diluted adjusted EPS outlook to the most comparable GAAP measures of net income and diluted EPS. Providing net income and diluted EPS guidance is potentially misleading and not practical given the difficulty of projecting event-driven transactional and other non-core operating items that are included in net income and diluted EPS, including restructuring actions, asset impairments and income tax valuation adjustments. The accompanying reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures with the most comparable GAAP measures for the historical periods presented are indicative of the reconciliations that will be prepared upon completion of the periods covered by the non-GAAP guidance.

Please reference the “Non-GAAP financial information” accompanying our quarterly earnings conference call presentations on our website at www.dana.com/investors for our GAAP results and the reconciliations of these measures, where used, to the comparable GAAP measures.
