LIVONIA, Mich., Feb. 18, 2011 – Tower International, Inc. [NYSE: TOWR], a leading integrated global manufacturer of engineered structural metal components and assemblies, today announced its fourth quarter and full year 2010 results.

 

   

Revenue for the quarter was $541.6 million, up 8 percent from $501 million in the fourth quarter 2009.

 

   

Adjusted EBITDA of $48.7 million for the quarter was up 28 percent compared with $38.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The improvement was driven by higher volume, the absence of non-recurring items from 2009, and higher efficiencies.

As detailed below, certain items adversely impacted results by $17 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $3.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2009.

 

   

For full year 2010, revenue was $2 billion, up 22 percent from 2009. Adjusted EBITDA was $190.2 million, up 52 percent. Adjusted EBITDA margin improved from 7.6 percent to 9.5 percent.

“Consistent with our ongoing game plan, Tower continued to do a good job converting increased volume into higher Adjusted EBITDA and higher margin”, said Tower President and CEO Mark Malcolm. “We believe our financial results in 2010 were right on track for this important first year of an anticipated multi-year auto recovery cycle. Looking forward, we remain intensely focused on satisfying customers, delivering solid and predictable results, profitably growing our business over time, and further strengthening our balance sheet.”
