GENTHERM REPORTS RECORD FOURTH QUARTER, YEAR-END RESULTS

2013 Revenues Up Year-Over-Year 19 Percent, Gross Margin Improved, Record Profits

NORTHVILLE, MI (March 5, 2014)…Gentherm (NASDAQ-GS:THRM), the global market leader and developer of innovative thermal management technologies, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

“We had solid growth in 2013 with a year-over-year increase in revenues of 19 percent to a record $662 million and executed in all sectors of our business,” said President and CEO Daniel R. Coker. “During the fourth quarter, revenues came in higher than we expected due to strong automotive volumes, especially in Asia. In addition, we improved our gross margin for the year which returned to the levels we expect, delivered record profits, expanded our customer base and increased our global product offerings.”

2013 Year-End Financial Highlights

For 2013, revenues increased 19 percent to $662.1 million from $555.0 million in the prior year. Revenue increases resulted from continued adoption of the Company’s Climate Control Seats™ (CCS™) which increased by 21 percent year over year to approximately $277.3 million. This increase was driven by new program launches since 2012, including the Cadillac CTX and the newly redesigned Land Rover Range Rover, and additional volume on programs launched during 2012, including the Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti JX. The Company experienced significant growth in every geographical region in which it does business and had significant market penetration in the automotive cable business, particularly in Europe. Gentherm’s European-based sales were 17 percent higher than the prior year despite local economic weakness.

Foreign currency translation of the Company’s Euro denominated revenue for 2013, which was approximately €141.9 million compared with €126.6 million during 2012, increased the US Dollar reported revenue by approximately $6.0 million. The average US Dollar/Euro exchange rate for 2013 was 1.3282 compared with 1.2861 for 2012.

Net income attributable to common shareholders for 2013 was $32.2 million, or $0.96 per basic share and $0.94 per diluted share, which included charges of $2.4 million in fees, legal and other expenses associated with the acquisition of additional W.E.T. shares during the year and a $1.8 million charge related to the global reporting structure reorganization during the 2013 second quarter.
