TORONTO, Aug. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Martinrea International Inc. (TSX : MRE), a diversified and global automotive supplier engaged in the design, development and manufacturing of highly engineered, value-added Lightweight Structures and Propulsion Systems, today announced the release of its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 and that it has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Total sales of $1,113.9 million, up 25.9% year-over-year.

  • Second quarter diluted net earnings per share and Adjusted Net Earnings per Share(1) of $0.32.

  • Second quarter Adjusted Operating Income(1) of $45.5 million, up 16.6% year-over-year.

  • Second quarter results were generally consistent with the first quarter of 2022, as lower quarter-over-quarter production sales were offset by a higher Adjusted Operating Income Margin(1).

  • Financial results were much improved in the first half of 2022 compared to second half of 2021.

  • Financial results are expected to improve further in the third quarter of 2022 and beyond, as production disruptions subside, launch activity normalizes, and we drive further cost recoveries through commercial activity.

  • 2023 outlook remains intact, including our expectation of over $200 million in Free Cash Flow(1).

  • Our net-debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA(1) ratio was 3.21x. For bank covenant purposes, the net-debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA(1) ratio was 2.38x; this calculation excludes third and fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA(1) with the remaining quarters pro-rated, as per our amended lending agreement with our banking syndicate.

  • Quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 declared.

OVERVIEW

Pat D’Eramo, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Our second quarter financial results were generally consistent with our first quarter performance, as the impact of lower production sales was offset by a better Adjusted Operating Income Margin(1). While our performance year to date is much improved compared to the back half of last year, we continue to face a challenging environment on several fronts, including supply-related disruptions from our customers and inflationary cost pressures, with energy costs being a notable headwind in our European operations. At the same time, we have been successful in offsetting a portion of these costs through commercial activity. I am proud of the work our team has done here and we expect more positive results to come from this commercial activity in the weeks and months ahead. Overall, our second quarter results are where we expected them to be, and confirm our view that the worst of the customer production issues are likely behind us. We expect our results to improve in the third quarter and beyond, as supply chain bottlenecks improve, our launch activity normalizes, and we drive further cost recoveries through commercial activity. This should set the stage for a multi-year period of strong production volumes, margins, and Free Cash Flow(1), with the majority of our plants running at full capacity, as vehicle inventories remain historically low and industry demand is still high.”

He added: “I am pleased to announce that we have been awarded $85 million in new business which consists of $70 million in Lightweight Structures, including additional volume on the Ford Mach-E, additional content on General Motors’ BEV 3 electric vehicle program and $15 million in Propulsion Systems, including additional volume on the Samsung battery enclosure for Stellantis. We continue to win meaningful work on electric vehicle platforms with key customers.”

Fred Di Tosto, Chief Financial Officer, stated: “Sales for the second quarter, excluding tooling sales of $61.2 million, were $1,052.6 million, and Adjusted Net Earnings per Share(1) was $0.32. Adjusted Operating Income(1) of $45.5 million and Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $114.3 million were generally consistent quarter-over-quarter, and up approximately 17% and 15% year-over-year, respectively; a good quarter overall considering the volatile environment. Free Cash Flow(1) was positive $23.5 million for the quarter compared to a negative level in the first quarter, mainly reflecting the timing of working capital flows. We expect Free Cash Flow(1) to be breakeven to slightly positive for the full year of 2022.”

He continued: “Net Debt(1) was approximately flat quarter over quarter at $931 million. Recall that under our amended lending agreements with our banking syndicate announced earlier this year, Adjusted EBITDA(1) in the third and fourth quarters of 2021 are ignored, with the remaining quarters in the trailing twelve-month period pro-rated when calculating Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA(1) for covenant purposes. Our leverage ratio is also subject to higher limits through the third quarter of 2022. On this basis, our calculated Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA(1) ratio under the revised terms was 2.38x in the second quarter, down from 2.43x in the first quarter. A comfortable level, and well below the covenant maximum of 4.5x for the quarter. Our leverage ratio should continue to improve in the coming quarters as we generate an increasing amount of Adjusted EBITDA(1) and Free Cash Flow(1), a portion of which we will use to pay down some debt. We have strong relationships with our lenders, and we thank them for their ongoing support.”

Rob Wildeboer, Executive Chairman, stated: “Better times are ahead for us and other automotive suppliers. Despite all you read about – war in Ukraine, interest rates, inflation, recession, house prices, supply chains, labour shortages, erratic production schedules – we had a good quarter, and our results should continue to improve moving forward. The fact is that automotive parts suppliers have technically been in a recession for over two years. We are hit when production volumes are down. We were hit badly in 2020 when the industry stopped for three months. We came back strong in the second half of 2020, but since that time we have been hit by supply-related production disruptions, inflationary cost pressures, and a heavy launch cycle. Things are looking up. There is a lot of pent-up demand for vehicles, given a persistent lack of supply and a need for OEMs to rebuild depleted inventory levels. This should help to offset the negative impacts from any potential economic slowdown. We are maintaining our 2023 outlook which calls for production sales (excluding tooling sales) of $4.6 to $4.8 billion, an Adjusted Operating Income Margin(1) exceeding 8%, and over $200 million in Free Cash Flow(1). I believe our Company has never been stronger and our future looks bright.”

*Non-IFRS Measures

The Company prepares its interim financial statements in accordance with IFRS. However, the Company considers certain non-IFRS financial measures as useful additional information in measuring the financial performance and condition of the Company. These measures, which the Company believes are widely used by investors, securities analysts and other interested parties in evaluating the Company’s performance, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other publicly traded companies, nor should they be construed as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS. Non-IFRS measures include “Adjusted Net Income”, “Adjusted Net Earnings per Share (on a basic and diluted basis)”, “Adjusted Operating Income”, “Adjusted EBITDA”, “Free Cash Flow”, and “Net Debt”.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of IFRS “Net Income” to Non-IFRS “Adjusted Net Income”, “Adjusted Operating Income” and “Adjusted EBITDA”:

The Company’s consolidated sales for the second quarter of 2022 increased by $229.0 million or 25.9% to $1,113.9 million as compared to $884.9 million for the second quarter of 2021. The total increase in sales was driven by year-over-year increases in the North America and Europe operating segments, partially offset by a year-over-year decrease in the Rest of the World.

Sales for the second quarter of 2022 in the Company’s North America operating segment increased by $190.9 million or 30.0% to $826.7 million from $635.8 million for the second quarter of 2021. The increase was due generally to the recovery in production volumes of certain light vehicle platforms that were disproportionately impacted by the industry-wide shortage of semiconductor chips during 2021; the launch and ramp up of new programs, including the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and Wagoneer, Nissan Pathfinder, Ford Mustang Mach E, Lucid Air, and Tesla Model Y; the impact of foreign exchange on the translation of U.S. denominated production sales, which had a positive impact on overall sales for the second quarter of 2022 of $17.2 million as compared to the second quarter of 2021; and an increase in tooling sales of $10.3 million, which are typically dependent on the timing of tooling construction and final acceptance by the customer.

Sales for the second quarter of 2022 in the Company’s Europe operating segment increased by $44.9 million or 21.3% to $255.8 million from $211.0 million for the second quarter of 2021. The increase can be attributed to the recovery in production volumes of certain light vehicle platforms that were disproportionately impacted by the industry-wide shortage of semiconductor chips during 2021; the launch and ramp up of new programs, including Mercedes’ new electric vehicle platform and the Lucid Air; the impact of aluminum material passthrough on customer pricing; and a $7.2 million increase in tooling sales. These positive factors were partially offset by the impact of foreign exchange on the translation of Euro denominated production sales, which had a negative impact on overall sales for the second quarter of 2022 of $19.7 million as compared to the second quarter of 2021.

Sales for the second quarter of 2022 in the Company’s Rest of the World operating segment decreased by $5.9 million or 13.2% to $38.7 million from $44.6 million in the second quarter of 2021. The decrease was largely driven by lower year-over-year production volumes, including a program that came with the operations acquired from Metalsa that ended production during or subsequent to the second quarter of 2021; and a $0.6 million decrease in tooling sales. These negative factors were partially offset by the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the second quarter of 2021, namely with Geely; and a $2.1 million positive foreign exchange impact from the translation of foreign denominated production sales as compared to the second quarter of 2021.

Overall tooling sales increased by $15.3 million (including outside segment sales eliminations) to $61.2 million for the second quarter of 2022 from $45.9 million for the second quarter of 2021.

The Company’s consolidated sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022 increased by $386.9 million or 20.6% to $2,268.9 million as compared to $1,882.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The total increase in sales was driven by increases in the North America and Europe operating segments, partially offset by a decrease in sales in the Rest of the World.

Sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022 in the Company’s North America operating segment increased by $346.5 million or 25.9% to $1,686.4 million from $1,340.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The increase was due generally to the recovery in production volumes of certain light vehicle platforms that were disproportionately impacted by the industry-wide shortage of semiconductor chips during 2021; the launch and ramp up of new programs, including the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and Wagoneer, Nissan Pathfinder, Ford Mustang Mach E, Lucid Air and Tesla Model Y; and the impact of foreign exchange on the translation of U.S. denominated production sales, which had a positive impact on overall sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022 of $14.0 million as compared to the corresponding period of 2021. These positive factors were partially offset by a decrease in tooling sales of $12.7 million, which are typically dependent on the timing of tooling construction and final acceptance by the customer.

Sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022 in the Company’s Europe operating segment increased by $52.2 million or 11.2% to $517.3 million from $465.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The increase can be attributed to the recovery in production volumes of certain light vehicle platforms that were disproportionately impacted by the industry-wide shortage of semiconductor chips during 2021; the launch and ramp up of new programs including Mercedes' new electric vehicle platform and the Lucid Air; the impact of aluminum material passthrough on customer pricing; and a $9.8 million increase in tooling sales. These positive factors were partially offset by the impact of foreign exchange on the translation of Euro denominated production sales, which had a negative impact on overall sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022 of $38.3 million as compared to the corresponding period of 2021.

Sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022 in the Company’s Rest of the World operating segment decreased by $12.6 million or 13.9% to $78.4 million from $91.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease was largely driven by lower year-over-year production volumes, including a program that came with the operations acquired from Metalsa that ended production during or subsequent to the six months ended June 30, 2021, and a $0.9 million decrease in tooling sales. These negative factors were partially offset by the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the six months ended June 30, 2021, namely with Geely; and a $1.9 million positive foreign exchange impact from the translation of foreign denominated production sales as compared to the corresponding period of 2021.

Overall tooling sales decreased by $5.1 million (including outside segment sales eliminations) to $113.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from $119.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

The gross margin percentage for the second quarter of 2022 of 11.3% decreased as a percentage of sales by 1.3% as compared to the gross margin percentage for the second quarter of 2021 of 12.6%. The decrease in gross margin as a percentage of sales was generally due to:

  • higher labour, material and energy costs;

  • operational inefficiencies at certain operating facilities including launch related costs and upfront costs incurred in preparation of upcoming new programs; and

  • a decrease in COVID-related government subsidies.

These factors were partially offset by:

  • favourable commercial settlements;

  • overall higher production sales volume and corresponding higher utilization of assets; and

  • productivity and efficiency improvements at certain operating facilities.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2022 continued to be impacted by production inefficiencies related to the semiconductor chip shortage and other supply chain disruptions driven by the unpredictability of customer production schedules.

(1)   Restructuring costs

Additions to the restructuring provision during the six months ended June 30, 2022 totaled $4.2 million and represent employee-related severance resulting from the rightsizing of operations in Canada related to the cancellation of an OEM light vehicle platform well before the end of its expected life cycle.

Additions to the restructuring provision during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 totaled $4.4 million and $5.5 million, respectively, and represent employee-related severance resulting from the rightsizing of an operating facility in Germany.

(2)   Gain on dilution of equity investments

As at December 31, 2021, the Company held 35,045,954 common shares of NanoXplore Inc. (“NanoXplore”) representing a 22.2% equity interest in NanoXplore (on a non-diluted basis). On February 24, 2022, NanoXplore closed a bought deal public offering of 6,522,000 common shares from treasury at a price of $4.60 per common share for aggregate gross proceeds of $30.0 million. Upon finalization of the transaction, the Company’s net ownership interest decreased to 21.2% from 22.2%. This dilution resulted in a deemed disposition of a portion of the Company’s ownership interest in NanoXplore, resulting in a gain on dilution of $4.1 million during the first quarter of 2022.

As at December 31, 2020, the Company held 34,045,954 common shares of NanoXplore representing a 23.3% equity interest in NanoXplore (on a non-diluted basis). On February 12, 2021, NanoXplore completed a public offering of 11,500,000 common shares for gross proceeds of $46.0 million. In a separate transaction on February 12, 2021, the Company purchased 1,000,000 common shares from NanoXplore’s President and Chief Executive Officer for consideration of $4.0 million. Subsequent to these transactions, the Company’s net ownership interest decreased to 22.2% from 23.3%. This dilution resulted in a deemed disposition of a portion of the Company’s ownership interest in NanoXplore, resulting in a gain on dilution of $7.8 million during the first quarter of 2021.

Net Income, before adjustments, for the second quarter of 2022 increased by $1.5 million to $25.5 million or $0.32 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, from Net Income of $24.0 million or $0.30 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, for the second quarter of 2021. Excluding the adjustments explained in Table A under “Adjustments to Net Income”, Adjusted Net Income for the second quarter of 2022 decreased by $1.6 million to $25.5 million or $0.32 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, from $27.0 million or $0.34 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, for the second quarter of 2021.

Adjusted Net Income for the second quarter of 2022, as compared to the second quarter of 2021, was negatively impacted by the following:

  • a year-over-year increase in SG&A expense, as previously discussed;

  • a net foreign exchange gain of $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to a gain of $5.2 million for the second quarter of 2021;

  • a year-over-year increase in finance expense on the Company’s revolving bank debt as a result of increased debt levels and borrowing rates; and

  • a higher effective tax rate on adjusted income (25.9% for the second quarter of 2022 compared to 24.5% for the second quarter of 2021).

These factors were partially offset by higher gross margin (on an absolute basis) on higher year-over-year sales volume.

Excluding the adjustments explained in Table B under “Adjustments to Net Income”, Adjusted Net Income for the six months ended June 30, 2022 decreased by $9.3 million to $50.3 million or $0.63 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, from $59.7 million or $0.74 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Adjusted Net Income for the six months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021, was negatively impacted by the following:

  • a year-over-year increase in SG&A expense, as previously discussed;

  • a net foreign exchange gain of $0.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to a gain of $10.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021;

  • a year-over-year increase in finance expense on the Company’s revolving bank debt as a result of increased debt levels and borrowing rates; and

  • a year-over-year increase in research and development costs.

These factors were partially offset by higher gross margin (on an absolute basis) on higher year-over-year sales volume.

1 The Company prepares its financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). However, the Company considers certain non-IFRS financial measures as useful additional information in measuring the financial performance and condition of the Company. These measures, which the Company believes are widely used by investors, securities analysts and other interested parties in evaluating the Company’s performance, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other publicly traded companies, nor should they be construed as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS. Non-IFRS measures, included anywhere in this press release, include “Adjusted Net Income”, “Adjusted Net Earnings per Share (on a basic and diluted basis)”, “Adjusted Operating Income”, “Adjusted EBITDA”, “Free Cash Flow” and “Net Debt”. The relevant IFRS financial measure, as applicable, and a reconciliation of certain non-IFRS financial measures to measures determined in accordance with IFRS are contained in the Company’s Management Discussion and Analysis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and in this press release.
