LIVONIA, Mich., July 26, 2017 – Tower International, Inc. [NYSE: TOWR], a leading global manufacturer of engineered automotive structural metal components and assemblies, today announced second quarter 2017 results and updated its business outlook through 2017.

 

·Revenue for the second quarter was $490 million compared with $505 million in the second quarter of 2016.

 

·Net income was $19.2 million or 92 cents per diluted share, compared with net loss of $4.8 million or 23 cents per share in the second quarter last year, which included non-cash impairments related to discontinued operations. As detailed below, this year’s second quarter included certain items that adversely impacted results by $0.9 million. Excluding these items and comparable items in the second quarter of 2016, diluted adjusted earnings were 97 cents per share, compared with 81 cents a year ago.

 

·Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $53.2 million, an increase of 6 percent compared with $50.3 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA Margin increased by 90 basis points to 10.9 percent.

 

·Free Cash Flow, as defined below, totaled $18 million for the quarter and was significantly favorable to outlook.

 

·Current outlook for full year revenue of $1.97 billion is expected to be $45 million higher than previous outlook, as higher European steel prices and favorable foreign exchange more than offset modest production decreases on Tower contented vehicles in Europe. The Company is re-affirming its outlook for full year 2017 Adjusted EBITDA of $210 million, Adjusted EPS of $3.60 per share and positive free cash flow of $55 million.

 

·During the second half of 2017, Tower has significant launches in North America on a number of platforms, which in total represent approximately 20 percent of ongoing revenue for the region.

 

“Tower delivered solid financial results in the quarter as revenue and earnings were largely in-line with our previous outlook and free cash flow was better than expected,” said CEO Jim Gouin. “We continue to invest in the growth of Tower and are well positioned to grow our business at a faster pace than the industry over the coming years. Program launches in the second half of the year exemplify how the emerging secular trends related to outsourcing are fueling Tower’s revenue growth.”
