Meritor Reports First-Quarter Fiscal Year 2019 Results

January 29, 2019 at 6:45 AM EST
Revenue Grows 15 Percent Year over Year

TROY, Mich., Jan. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Meritor, Inc. (NYSE: MTOR) today reported financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended Dec. 31, 2018.

First-Quarter Highlights

  • Sales of $1,038 million
  • Net income attributable to the company and net income from continuing operations attributable to the company of $90 million
  • Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.03
  • Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to the company of $69 million, or $0.79 per adjusted diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $119 million and adjusted EBITDA margin of 11.5 percent
  • Repurchased 3 million common shares

First-Quarter Results

For the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, Meritor posted sales of $1,038 million, up from $903 million, or approximately 15 percent, from the same period last year. Higher sales were driven by increased truck production, primarily in North America, and market share gains.

Net income attributable to the company was $90 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, compared to net loss attributable to the company of $36 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, in the same period last year. The company recognized $31 million of income related to remeasuring the Maremont asbestos liability in the current period. In addition, Meritor incurred $77 million of tax expense in the prior year related to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that did not repeat.

Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to the company in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 was $69 million, or $0.79 per adjusted diluted share, compared to $55 million, or $0.62 per adjusted diluted share, in the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA was $119 million, compared to $99 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 was 11.5 percent, compared to 11.0 percent in the same period last year. Higher adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin were driven primarily by conversion on higher revenue and increased earnings from unconsolidated affiliates.

Cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 was $11 million compared to $33 million in the same period a year ago. Free cash flow was negative $12 million compared to free cash flow of $15 million in the same period last year. The decrease in cash flow was driven primarily by higher incentive compensation payments and investments in inventory to support stronger revenue.

First-Quarter Segment Results

Commercial Truck & Trailer sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 were $824 million, up $111 million, or 16 percent, compared to the same period last year. The increase in sales was driven primarily by higher truck production in North America and increased market share, partially offset by the strengthening U.S. dollar against most currencies.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for the Commercial Truck & Trailer segment was $79 million for the quarter, compared to $69 million in the prior year. The increase in segment adjusted EBITDA was driven primarily by conversion on higher revenue, partially offset by higher material and freight costs, selling, general and administrative expense, and the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against most currencies. Segment adjusted EBITDA margin decreased from 9.7 percent in the same period last year to 9.6 percent in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019.

The Aftermarket & Industrial segment posted sales of $257 million, up $28 million or 12 percent, from the same period last year. Higher sales were driven by increased aftermarket volumes across North America and higher sales in the Industrial business.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for Aftermarket & Industrial was $38 million compared to $32 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. Segment adjusted EBITDA margin increased from 14.0 percent to 14.8 percent in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019. The increase in segment adjusted EBITDA and segment adjusted EBITDA margin was driven primarily by conversion on higher revenue.

Outlook for Fiscal Year 2019

The company is increasing its full-year guidance for revenue, net income, diluted earnings per share and adjusted diluted earnings per share for fiscal year 2019. Meritor maintains its prior guidance for adjusted EBITDA margin, operating cash flow and free cash flow as follows:

  • Revenue to be approximately $4.3 billion.
  • Net income attributable to the company and net income from continuing operations attributable to the company to be approximately $265 million (diluted earnings per share of approximately $3.10).
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be approximately $3.30.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin to be approximately 11.5 percent.
  • Operating cash flow to be in the range of $290 million to $300 million.
  • Free cash flow to be in the range of $175 million to $185 million.

"Overall, this was an excellent quarter for Meritor," said Jay Craig, CEO and president. "Fiscal year 2019 has started strong and we are raising our outlook to reflect the financial results we now expect this year."

Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words or phrases such as "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "should," "are likely to be," "will" and similar expressions.

These forward-looking statements are made only as of the date hereof, and the company undertakes no obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by law. All earnings per share amounts are on a diluted basis. The company's fiscal year ends on the Sunday nearest Sept. 30, and its fiscal quarters generally end on the Sundays nearest Dec. 31, March 31 and June 30. All year and quarter references relate to the company's fiscal year and fiscal quarters, unless otherwise stated.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), we have provided information regarding non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures include adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to the company, adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, segment adjusted EBITDA, segment adjusted EBITDA margin, free cash flow and net debt.

Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to the company and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations are defined as reported income (loss) from continuing operations and reported diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations before restructuring expenses, asset impairment charges, non-cash tax expense, including the use of deferred tax assets in jurisdictions with net operating loss carry forwards or tax credits, and other special items as determined by management. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-controlling interests in consolidated joint ventures, loss on sale of receivables, restructuring expenses, asset impairment charges and other special items as determined by management. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by consolidated sales from continuing operations. Segment adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, noncontrolling interests in consolidated joint ventures, loss on sale of receivables, restructuring expense, asset impairment charges and other special items as determined by management. Segment adjusted EBITDA excludes unallocated legacy and corporate expense (income), net. Segment adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as segment adjusted EBITDA divided by consolidated sales from continuing operations, either in the aggregate or by segment as applicable. Free cash flow is defined as cash flows provided by (used for) operating activities less capital expenditures. Net debt is defined as total debt less cash and cash equivalents.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to both management and investors in their analysis of the company's financial position and results of operations. In particular, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, segment adjusted EBITDA, segment adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to the company and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations are meaningful measures of performance to investors as they are commonly utilized to analyze financial performance in our industry, perform analytical comparisons, benchmark performance between periods and measure our performance against externally communicated targets.

Free cash flow is used by investors and management to analyze our ability to service and repay debt and return value directly to shareholders. Net debt over adjusted EBITDA is a specific financial measure in our current M2019 plan used to measure the company's leverage in order to assist management in its assessment of appropriate allocation of capital.

Management uses the aforementioned non-GAAP financial measures for planning and forecasting purposes, and segment adjusted EBITDA is also used as the primary basis for the Chief Operating Decision Maker ("CODM") to evaluate the performance of each of our reportable segments.

Our Board of Directors uses adjusted EBITDA margin, free cash flow, adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations and net debt over adjusted EBITDA as key metrics to determine management's performance under our performance-based compensation plans.

Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to the company, adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, segment adjusted EBITDA and segment adjusted EBITDA margin should not be considered a substitute for the reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our financial performance. Free cash flow should not be considered a substitute for cash provided by (used for) operating activities, or other cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of financial position or liquidity. In addition, this non-GAAP cash flow measure does not reflect cash used to repay debt or cash received from the divestitures of businesses or sales of other assets and thus does not reflect funds available for investment or other discretionary uses. Net debt should not be considered a substitute for total debt as reported on the balance sheet. These non-GAAP financial measures, as determined and presented by the company, may not be comparable to related or similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Set forth below are reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
