MAUMEE, Ohio, April 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --

First-quarter Highlights

  • Sales of $1.93 billion
  • Net income attributable to Dana of $38 million; diluted EPS of $0.26
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $205 million, margin of 10.6 percent of sales
  • Diluted adjusted EPS of $0.47

Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2020.

"The response to the global pandemic is presenting unprecedented challenges for Dana as well as our people, customers, suppliers, and communities," said James Kamsickas, Dana chairman and CEO. "The rapid onset of containment measures and disruption to production schedules has challenged our organization like never before.  However, I am very proud of how our people have responded and the decisive actions we have taken to protect our employees, communities, customers, and future.  As we work toward bringing our operations back online, we will continue to take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of our people while also serving the needs of our customers."

First-quarter 2020 Financial Results
Sales for the first quarter of 2020 totaled $1.93 billion, compared with $2.16 billion in the same period of 2019.  The decrease is primarily attributable to weaker demand in the heavy- vehicle markets in January and February of this year and the rapid reduction in production across all mobility markets in March as a result of the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These declines were partially offset by the conversion of sales backlog and the benefit of recent acquisitions.

Dana reported net income of $38 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared with net income of $98 million in the same period of 2019.  The difference was primarily due to lower market demand and a goodwill impairment charge of $51 million arising from the negative effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.  It was partially offset by discrete income tax benefits of $32 million, primarily resulting from recording additional U.S. deferred tax assets related to foreign tax credits.

Reported diluted earnings per share were $0.26, compared with diluted earnings per share of $0.68 in the first quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2020 was $205 million, compared with $257 million for the same period last year.  Profit decline in the first quarter of 2020 compared with the same period in 2019 was driven by lower end-market demand for heavy vehicles early in the quarter and the reduced production environment in March.  Partially offsetting the market impacts were the profitable conversion of new business backlog and inorganic growth. Effective cost management actions in the first quarter were successful in mitigating the margin impact of the rapid sales decline.

Diluted adjusted earnings per share were $0.47 in the first quarter of 2020, compared with $0.78 in the same period last year.  The lower year-over-year comparison was primarily due to lower earnings and higher depreciation expense.

Operating cash flow in the first quarter of 2020 was a use of $51 million, compared with a use of $16 million in the same period of 2019. 

Adjusted free cash flow was a use of $114 million in both the first quarters of 2020 and 2019. Lower profit in this year's first quarter was offset by lower one-time costs and lower capital expenditures, compared with the same period last year.

Due to this unprecedented disruption in mobility markets as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and associated economic uncertainty, the company believes it is prudent to refrain from issuing full-year financial guidance until end-market demand stabilizes.

The company has reported it has total liquidity of more than $1.8 billion, including available cash and marketable securities of $646 million as of March 31, 2020. It also has $679 million available on its committed revolving credit facility and $500 million available under its recently announced bridge facility.

"The strength of our balance sheet and capital structure has given us the flexibility to manage through this period of significantly lower production volumes," said Jonathan Collins, Dana executive vice president and chief financial officer.  "We are confident that we have ample liquidity and further cost-management actions available as we navigate these uncertain times."

Non-GAAP Financial Information
This release refers to adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure which we have defined as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, equity grant expense, restructuring expense, non-service cost components of pension and other postretirement benefit costs, and other adjustments not related to our core operations (gain/loss on debt extinguishment, pension settlements, divestitures, impairment, etc.). Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of our ability to maintain and continue to invest in our operations and provide shareholder returns. We use adjusted EBITDA in assessing the effectiveness of our business strategies, evaluating and pricing potential acquisitions and as a factor in making incentive compensation decisions. In addition to its use by management, we also believe adjusted EBITDA is a measure widely used by securities analysts, investors, and others to evaluate financial performance of our company relative to other Tier 1 automotive suppliers. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for income before income taxes, net income or other results reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Diluted adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure, which we have defined as adjusted net income divided by adjusted diluted shares.  We define adjusted net income as net income (loss) attributable to the parent company, excluding any nonrecurring income tax items, restructuring charges, amortization expense, and other adjustments not related to our core operations (as used in adjusted EBITDA), net of any associated income tax effects.  We define adjusted diluted shares as diluted shares as determined in accordance with GAAP based on adjusted net income.  This measure is considered useful for purposes of providing investors, analysts, and other interested parties with an indicator of ongoing financial performance that provides enhanced comparability to EPS reported by other companies.  Diluted adjusted EPS is neither intended to represent nor be an alternative measure to diluted EPS reported under GAAP.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which we have defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less purchases of property, plant, and equipment.  Adjusted free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which we have defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities excluding voluntary pension contributions less purchases of property, plant, and equipment.  We believe these measures are useful to investors in evaluating the operational cash flow of the company inclusive of the spending required to maintain the operations.  Free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow are not intended to represent nor be an alternative to the measure of net cash provided by (used in) operating activities reported under GAAP.  Free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

We have not provided reconciliations of preliminary and projected adjusted EBITDA and diluted adjusted EPS to the most comparable GAAP measures of net income and diluted EPS. Providing net income and diluted EPS guidance is potentially misleading and not practical given the difficulty of projecting event-driven transactional and other non-core operating items that are included in net income and diluted EPS, including restructuring actions, asset impairments, and income tax valuation adjustments. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures with the most comparable GAAP measures for historical periods are indicative of the reconciliations that will be prepared upon completion of the periods covered by the non-GAAP guidance. Please reference the "Non-GAAP Financial Information" accompanying our quarterly earnings conference call presentations on our website at www.dana.com/investors for our GAAP results and the reconciliations of these measures, were used, to the comparable GAAP measures.
