|Jul 29|magazine62 min read

TROY, Mich., July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Meritor, Inc. (NYSE: MTOR) today reported financial results for its third fiscal quarter that ended June 30, 2020.

Third-Quarter Highlights

  • Sales of $514 million
  • Net loss attributable to Meritor and net loss from continuing operations attributable to Meritor were $36 million
  • Diluted loss per share from continuing operations of $0.50
  • Adjusted loss from continuing operations attributable to the company of $34 million, or $0.47 loss per adjusted diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $7 million and adjusted EBITDA margin of 1.4 percent
  • Operating cash flow was negative $102 million
  • Total liquidity of $970 million as of June 30, 2020

Third-Quarter Results
For the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, Meritor posted sales of $514 million, down $652 million, or approximately 56 percent, from the same period last year. The decrease in sales was primarily due to lower market volumes driven by decreased customer demand and government mandates as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The majority of the company's manufacturing facilities were idled during the month of April with production increasing throughout the remainder of the quarter.

Net loss attributable to Meritor was $36 million, or $0.50 loss per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to Meritor of $86 million, or $1.00 per diluted share in the prior year. Net loss from continuing operations attributable to Meritor was $36 million, or $0.50 loss per diluted share, compared to net income from continuing operations attributable to Meritor of $85 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Lower net income year over year was driven primarily by lower revenues as a result of significantly lower market volumes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as higher restructuring costs related to programs announced in June 2020.

During the quarter, certain actions were executed in order to decrease the impact of the significantly lower production levels. These actions included temporary salary reductions, employee headcount reductions, hourly employee layoffs and other discretionary spend reductions.

Adjusted loss from continuing operations attributable to the company in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $34 million, or $0.47 loss per adjusted diluted share, compared to adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to the company of $103 million, or $1.20 per adjusted diluted share, in the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA was $7 million, compared to $146 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2019. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 was 1.4 percent, compared to 12.5 percent in the same period last year. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA year over year was driven primarily by lower revenues as a result of lower market volumes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Cost reduction actions executed in the quarter partially offset the impact from lower revenue.

Cash used for operating activities in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $102 million compared to cash provided by operating activities of $143 million in the same period a year ago. Free cash flow was negative $114 million, compared to $124 million, in the same period last year. The decrease in operating cash flow year over year was driven primarily by lower revenue as a result of significantly lower market volumes due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Of the total decline in operating cash flow, $124 million of the reduction was due to the impact of accounts receivable factoring as a result of lower balances available under the factoring programs.

Third-Quarter Segment Results
Commercial Truck sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 were $336 million, down $589 million, or 64 percent, compared to the same period last year. The decrease in sales in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 was primarily due to lower market volumes driven by decreased customer demand and government mandates as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The majority of the company's production facilities were idled during the month of April with production increasing throughout the remainder of the quarter.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for Commercial Truck was negative $23 million, or negative 6.8 percent of sales for the quarter, compared to $97 million, or 10.5 percent of sales in the prior year. The decrease in segment adjusted EBITDA and segment adjusted EBITDA margin was driven primarily by significantly decreased market volumes for most regions across the segment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, partially offset by cost actions executed in the quarter.

The Aftermarket and Industrial segment posted sales of $203 million, down $79 million, or 28 percent, from the same period a year ago. While Aftermarket facilities were not idled during the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, sales were lower in comparison with fiscal year 2019 due to changes in customer demand and the impact from the termination of the WABCO distribution arrangement. Industrial sales were also down, driven by decreased volumes as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, partially offset by the revenue generated from the AxleTech business.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for Aftermarket and Industrial was $31 million, or 15.3 percent of sales for the quarter, compared to $50 million, or 17.7 percent of sales, a year ago. The decrease in segment adjusted EBITDA and segment adjusted EBITDA margin was driven primarily by the lower volumes partially offset by the cost reduction actions executed in the quarter.

Liquidity

  • The company ended its third fiscal quarter with $970 million of total liquidity. This includes $280 million of cash and $690 million of undrawn liquidity under the company's revolving credit and U.S. Securitization facilities. Liquidity represents approximately 29% of trailing 12-month sales.
  • Meritor issued $300 million of 6.25 percent unsecured senior notes due 2025. Net proceeds from the offering of the notes, as well as cash on hand, were used to repay the outstanding $304 million balance under the company's senior secured credit facility.

Outlook for Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2020
The company is providing the following guidance for the fourth quarter, of fiscal year 2020:

  • Sales of approximately $700 million
  • Net loss attributable to the company and net loss from continuing operations attributable to the company to be approximately $10 million
  • Diluted loss per share from continuing operations to be approximately $0.15
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 6 percent
  • Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations of approximately negative $0.10
  • Operating cash flow to be approximately $65 million
  • Free cash flow of approximately $25 million

"We took aggressive actions to reduce our cost structure in the short-term to preserve liquidity and stabilize cash flow," said Jay Craig, president and CEO of Meritor. "At the same time, we are making the appropriate investments to ensure the company is in a strong product position for the future."

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, and free cash flow.

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, related to 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.

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. Free cash flow over adjusted income from continuing operations is a specific financial measure of our M2022 plan used to measure the company's ability to convert earnings to free cash flow.

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 free cash flow over adjusted income from continuing operations 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. 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.
