Commercial Vehicle Group Announces Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

NEW ALBANY, Ohio, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVGI) today reported revenues of $173.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, down 23.2% compared to $225.8 million for the prior-year period.  Operating loss for the fourth quarter was $2.3 million compared to operating income of $16.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.  Net loss was $5.6 million for the fourth quarter, or ($0.20) per diluted share, compared to net income of $10.1 million, or $0.36 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter.  Diluted shares outstanding were 28.4 million for the quarter compared to 28.2 million for the prior-year period. 

"Our fourth quarter revenues declined compared to both the prior-year quarter and the third quarter of 2012 reflecting both lower North American truck production levels and construction equipment build rates.  Production in the North American Class 8 market declined approximately 23% compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 and our construction market revenues declined approximately 29% for this same period.  We also saw a decline in orders for both our military and aftermarket products, which further impacted our results," said Mervin Dunn, President and CEO of Commercial Vehicle Group.  "We believe the weak market conditions we experienced in the third and fourth quarters of 2012 are short-term.  As a result, we responded appropriately by reducing labor and other costs to minimize the impact of lower volumes while, at the same time, not making major cut backs in areas that affect our five-year strategic plan of growth and diversification.  We must not sacrifice our long-term momentum for short-term success," added Mr. Dunn. 

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $857.9 million, an increase of $25.9 million, or 3.1%, compared to the prior-year period, due primarily to the overall increase in the North American Class 8 market.  Operating income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $44.1 million compared to $49.1 million for the prior year.  Net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $50.1 million, or $1.76 per diluted share, compared to $18.6 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, in the prior year, primarily as a result of the income tax benefit of $27.0 million recorded for the year ended December 31, 2012.   This tax benefit was driven primarily by a non-recurring release of the Company's domestic deferred tax asset valuation allowance in the third quarter of 2012.

"Sequentially, compared to the third quarter of 2012, our results were negatively impacted by approximately $1.0 million related to foreign exchange expense primarily as a result of the decline in the Japanese Yen, approximately $0.3 million of incremental start-up costs related to our Ukraine operation and approximately $0.5 million incremental costs related to the two acquisitions we announced in the fourth quarter.  While we believe these costs are short-term in nature and unique to the quarter, they nonetheless impacted our fourth quarter results," stated Chad M. Utrup, Chief Financial Officer for Commercial Vehicle Group. 

The Company did not have any outstanding borrowings under its asset-based revolver at December 31, 2012 and, as a result, was not subject to any financial maintenance covenants.  In addition, the Company had approximately $68.4 million of cash on its balance sheet at December 31, 2012 with an additional $37.5 million of availability under its asset-based revolver for total liquidity of approximately $105.9 million.  The Company does not expect to trigger the requirement to comply with financial maintenance covenants in 2013.
