AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BorgWarner Inc. (NYSE: BWA) today reported first quarter 2013 U.S. GAAP net earnings of $1.22 per diluted share. Excluding non-comparable items, net earnings were $1.30 per diluted share. Net sales were $1,851 million in the quarter.

First Quarter Highlights: 

  • Net sales of $1,851 million
    • Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies and 2012 dispositions, net sales were down approximately 1% compared with first quarter 2012. 
  • U.S. GAAP net earnings of $1.22 per diluted share. 
    • Excluding $(0.08) per diluted share of net non-comparable items, net earnings were $1.30 per diluted share, up 2% from first quarter 2012 on a comparable basis and a new first quarter record for the company.
  • Operating income of $199 million
    • Excluding $17 million of pre-tax costs related to non-comparable items, operating income was $216 million, or 11.7% of net sales. 
  • Repurchased approximately $50 million of shares in the quarter.

First Quarter Performance: "Outstanding performance by our operations drove our strong first quarter results," said James Verrier, President and CEO of BorgWarner. "The focus on fuel economy and improved emissions continued to drive growth for BorgWarner in most parts of the world, but sharp declines in light vehicle production in Europe, a market that comprises nearly half of our sales, more than offset this growth. Excluding the impact of foreign currencies and 2012 dispositions, our net sales were down approximately 1% in the first quarter compared with first quarter 2012, in line with global light vehicle production, which was down 1%. Light vehicle production in Europe was down 9% in the same period. Despite a challenging sales environment, operational efficiency and cost controls enabled us to post a strong operating margin of 11.7% in the quarter, excluding non-comparable items."

2013 Outlook: The company's outlook for 2013 is unchanged. Annual net sales growth is expected to be 2% to 6% compared with 2012, or 3% to 7% net of 2012 dispositions. Net earnings are expected to be within a range of $5.15 to $5.45 per diluted share, excluding non-comparable items. Operating income, as a percentage of net sales, is expected to be 11.5% or better, excluding non-comparable items.

Financial Results: Net sales were $1,851 million in first quarter 2013, down 3% from $1,913 million in first quarter 2012. Net earnings in the quarter were $142 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, compared with $158 million, or $1.28 per diluted share, in first quarter 2012. First quarter 2013 net earnings included net non-comparable items of $(0.08) per diluted share. These items are listed in a table below as reconciliations of non-U.S. GAAP measures, which are provided by the company for comparison with other results and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. The impact of foreign currencies, primarily the Japanese Yen and Brazilian Real, decreased net sales by approximately $2 million, and decreased net earnings approximately $(0.03) per diluted share, in first quarter 2013 compared with first quarter 2012.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $16 million in first quarter 2013 compared with $31 million in first quarter 2012. Capital expenditures, including tooling outlays, totaled $87 million in first quarter 2013, compared with $95 million in first quarter 2012. Balance sheet debt increased by $134 million and cash on hand decreased by $20 million at the end of first quarter 2013 compared with the end of 2012. The $154 million increase in balance sheet debt (net of cash) was primarily due to seasonal working capital funding requirements and $50 million of share repurchases. The ratio of balance sheet debt (net of cash) to capital was 13.8% at the end of first quarter 2013 compared with 10.0% at the end of 2012.

Engine Group Results: Engine segment net sales were $1,258 million in first quarter 2013 compared with $1,308 million in first quarter 2012. Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies and 2012 dispositions, net sales were down approximately 1%. Higher sales of variable cam timing systems in Japan and emissions systems in Asia and the Americas were more than offset by lower production volumes in Europe. Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes and non-controlling interest ("Adjusted EBIT") were $202 million in first quarter 2013, down 4% from $210 million in first quarter 2012.

Drivetrain Group Results: Drivetrain segment net sales were $601 million in first quarter 2013, compared with $611 million in first quarter 2012. Excluding the positive impact of foreign currencies, net sales were down approximately 3%. Higher sales of all-wheel drive systems in North America and all-wheel drive systems and transmission components in Korea, were more than offset by lower production volumes in Europe. Adjusted EBIT was $56 million in first quarter 2013, down 8% from $61 million in first quarter 2012.

Recent Highlights:

  • On April 24, 2013, the company's Board of Directors authorized the purchase of up to 5 million additional shares of the company's common stock on the open market.
