Cooper Standard Reports Record 2016 Results

NOVI, Mich., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --Cooper-Standard Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CPS) today reported record results for the fourth quarter and full year 2016.

  • Net income totaled $31.1 million or $1.65 per fully diluted share
  • Adjusted net income totaled $48.1 million or $2.56 per fully diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $103.8 million, up 13.7 percent year-over-year

Full Year 2016 Highlights

  • Net income totaled $139.0 million or $7.42 per fully diluted share
  • Adjusted net income totaled $194.9 million or $10.41 per fully diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $416.7 million, up 15.0 percent year-over-year
  • Cash flow from operations totaled $363.7 million; free cash flow generated was $199.3 million

"2016 was the best year in our Company's history by nearly every measure," stated Jeffrey Edwards, chairman and CEO of Cooper Standard. "We set new all-time highs in sales, gross profit margin, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow while improving workplace safety, product quality and customer satisfaction. We are very proud of our culture of engagement that is driving innovation and excellence across all areas of the business and significantly contributing to our record results."

During the fourth quarter 2016, Cooper Standard generated net income of $31.1 million, or $1.65 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA of $103.8 million on sales of $875.4 million. These results compare to a net income of $21.7 million or $1.16 per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA of $91.3 million on sales of $854.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The Company's adjusted EBITDA margin for the fourth quarter 2016 was 11.9 percent compared to 10.7 percent in the fourth quarter 2015.

Fourth quarter 2016 net income excluding restructuring and other special items ("adjusted net income"), totaled $48.1 million, or $2.56 per diluted share, compared to $56.2 million, or $3.01 per diluted share in the fourth quarter 2015. The year-over-year change is due largely to a one-time adjustment (benefit) to income tax expense recorded in the fourth quarter 2015.

For the full year 2016, the Company reported net income of $139.0 million, or $7.42 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA of $416.7 million on sales of $3.47 billion. By comparison, the Company reported net income of $111.9 million, or $6.08 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA of $362.4 million on sales of $3.34 billion in 2015. The Company's adjusted EBITDA margin for 2016 was 12.0 percent compared to 10.8 percent in 2015.

Adjusted net income for 2016 was $194.9 million or $10.41 per diluted share. This compares to adjusted net income of $168.7 million or $9.16 per diluted share in 2015.

Adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are non-GAAP measures. Reconciliations to the most directly comparable financial measures, calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted inthe United States ("U.S. GAAP"), are provided in the attached supplemental schedules.

Operational Overview

Consolidated

Fourth quarter 2016 sales increased by $21.0 million or 2.5 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. The year-over-year increase is largely attributable to favorable volume and mix, additional revenue from the acquisition of AMI, and the consolidation of the Guangzhou joint venture in China, partially offset by customer price adjustments, the divestiture of the Company's hard coat plastic exterior trim business and unfavorable foreign exchange. Excluding the impact from foreign exchange, sales in the fourth quarter of 2016 were $886.9 million, an increase of 3.8 percent over the fourth quarter of 2015.

Fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA increased by $12.5 million or 13.7 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. The year-over-year variance is primarily attributable to improvements in operating efficiency, improved supply chain performance and favorable volume and mix. These favorable items were partially offset by customer price adjustments, higher compensation related costs and incremental expense related to growth.

North America

Cooper Standard's North America segment reported sales of $455.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, an increase of 0.9 percent when compared to $451.4 million in sales recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase was attributable to the acquisition of AMI and improved volume and mix, partially offset by customer price adjustments and the sale of the hard coat plastic exterior trim business which occurred in December 2015.

North America segment profit was $49.9 million, or 11.0 percent of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2016. This compared to segment profit of $58.5 million, or 13.0 percent of sales in the fourth quarter of 2015. The year-over-year change was driven primarily by the non-recurrence of the gain on the sale of the hard coat plastic exterior trim business that was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Europe

Cooper Standard's Europe segment reported sales of $237.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to $249.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The decrease was attributable to unfavorable volume and mix, customer price adjustments and unfavorable foreign exchange.

The Europe segment reported a segment loss of $8.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to segment loss of $16.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The segment results for the fourth quarter 2016 included restructuring expense of $11.8 million. Segment loss in the fourth quarter of 2015 included restructuring expense of $16.2 million. Excluding restructuring expense, Europe segment profit was $3.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to a segment profit of $0.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. This improvement was largely attributable to increased operating efficiency and improved supply chain performance, partially offset by customer price adjustments, unfavorable volume and mix, and higher compensation related costs.

Asia Pacific

Cooper Standard's Asia Pacific segment reported sales of $160.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, an increase of 18.2 percent compared to $135.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The year-over-year increase is largely attributable to improved volume and mix and the consolidation of the Guangzhou joint venture in China, partially offset by customer price adjustments and unfavorable foreign exchange.

The Asia Pacific segment reported segment profit of $3.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to segment profit of $0.3 million in the fourth quarter 2015. The year-over-year change was largely attributable to improved volume and mix, increased operating efficiency and improved supply chain performance, partially offset by higher expenses related to regional growth and unfavorable foreign exchange.

South America

Cooper Standard's South America segment reported sales of $22.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to $18.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase was largely attributable to favorable foreign currency exchange rates.

The South America segment incurred a segment loss of $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to a loss of $24.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The improvement is largely attributable to the non-recurrence of an asset impairment charge recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Liquidity and Cash Flow

At December31, 2016, Cooper Standard had cash and cash equivalents totaling $480.1 million. Net cash provided by operating activities in the fourth quarter 2016 was $181.7 million compared to $160.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. Free cash flow (defined as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures) improved to $134.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to $123.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. For the full year 2016, net cash provided by operating activities was $363.7 million compared to $270.4 million in 2015. Free cash flow for the full year 2016 improved to $199.3 million compared to $104.1 million in 2015.

In addition to cash and cash equivalents, the Company had $138.8 million available under its senior amended asset-based revolving credit facility ("ABL facility") for total liquidity of $618.9 million at December31, 2016.

Total debt at December31, 2016 was $762.9 million compared to $777.9 million at December31, 2015. Net debt (defined as total debt minus cash and cash equivalents) at December31, 2016 was $282.8 million compared to $399.7 million at December31, 2015. Cooper Standard's net leverage ratio (defined as net debt divided by adjusted EBITDA) at December31, 2016 was 0.7 times trailing 12 months adjusted EBITDA.

Outlook

The Company has issued 2017 full year guidance as follows:

Current Guidance

12.3% - 12.8%

Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share and free cash flow are measures not recognized under U.S. GAAP and which exclude certain non-cash and special items that may obscure trends and operating performance not indicative of the Company's core financial activities. Management considers EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share and free cash flow to be key indicators of the Company's operating performance and believes that these and similar measures are widely used by investors, securities analysts and other interested parties in evaluating the Company's performance. In addition, similar measures are utilized in the calculation of the financial covenants and ratios contained in the Company's financing arrangements and management uses these measures for developing internal budgets and forecasting purposes. EBITDA is defined as net income adjusted to reflect income tax expense, interest expense net of interest income, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted to reflect certain items that management does not consider to be reflective of the Company's core operating performance. Adjusted net income is defined as net income adjusted to reflect certain items that management does not consider to be reflective of the Company's core operating performance. Adjusted earnings per share is defined as adjusted net income divided by the weighted average number of basic and diluted shares. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures and is useful to both management and investors in evaluating the Company's ability to service and repay its debt.

When analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should use EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share and free cash flow as supplements to, and not as alternatives for, net income, operating income, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and not as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of the Company's liquidity. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share and free cash flow have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of the Company's results of operations as reported under U.S. GAAP. Other companies may report EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share and free cash flow differently and therefore the Company's results may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. In addition, in evaluating adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income, it should be noted that in the future the Company may incur expenses similar to or in excess of the adjustments in the below presentation. This presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by special items. Reconciliations of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and free cash flow follow.
