LIVONIA, Mich., Jul. 31, 2018 – Tower International, Inc. [NYSE: TOWR], a leading global manufacturer of engineered automotive structural metal components and assemblies, today announced second quarter 2018 results and affirmed its earnings and free cash flow outlook for 2018.

 

·Revenue for the second quarter was $556 million compared with $490 million in the second quarter of 2017 representing a 13 percent increase.

 

·Net income was $22.4 million or $1.07 per share increasing from $19.2 million or $0.92 per share in the second quarter last year. As detailed below, this year’s second quarter included certain items that, in aggregate, decreased results by $468 thousand. Excluding these items and comparable items in the second quarter of 2017, adjusted earnings per share amounted to $1.09, an increase of 12 percent from the $0.97 reported a year ago.

 

·Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $58.2 million slightly ahead of the Company’s outlook and up 10 percent from $52.8 million a year ago.

 

·For the quarter, net cash provided by continuing operating activities was $49 million. Cash disbursed for purchases of equipment totaled $40 million resulting in Free Cash Flow of $9 million.

 

·Full year 2018 outlook includes:

 

oRevenue of $2.17 billion, reflecting primarily net new business of $125 million, favorable foreign exchange and higher steel prices;
oAdjusted EBITDA of $230 million;
oDiluted Adjusted EPS of $4.10 per share; and
oFree Cash Flow of $50 million, with strong free cash flow in the second half of the year more than offsetting the cash outflow in the first half of the year.

 

·The Company’s outlook for third quarter 2018 includes revenue of $525 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $57 million and Diluted Adjusted Earnings Per Share of $1.04.

 

“We remain balanced in our approach of growing profitably, reducing leverage – as evidenced by our July pay down of $50 million of Term Loan debt, and returning capital to shareholders,” said CEO Jim Gouin.  “Tower delivered solid financial results in the second quarter as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS both increased by more than 10 percent. Revenue for the quarter increased 13 percent as Tower continues to benefit from the secular trends of outsourcing and a continued production mix shift from cars to trucks and SUVs. Tower’s North American revenue continued to significantly outpace the market, growing by 16 percent while the industry production declined by 2 percent. These trends, in combination with our solid backlog of net new business, gives us further confidence that we will continue to grow our revenue faster than the industry in total.”
