AUBURN HILLS, Mich., July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BorgWarner Inc. (NYSE: BWA) today reported second quarter 2012 U.S. GAAP net earnings of $1.00 per diluted share. Excluding non-comparable items, net earnings were $1.36 per diluted share, a new record for the company. Net sales were $1,856 million in the quarter.

Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Net sales of $1,856 million.
    • Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies and 2011 dispositions, net sales were up 10% compared with second quarter 2011.
  • U.S. GAAP net earnings of $1.00 per diluted share.
    • Excluding $(0.27) per diluted share related to a loss from disposal activities and $(0.09) per diluted share related to tax adjustments, net earnings were a record $1.36 per diluted share, up 21% from second quarter 2011 on a comparable basis.
  • Operating income of $193 million.
    • Excluding the $38 million pre-tax charge related to the loss from disposal activities, operating income was $231 million, or 12.5% of net sales, a new record for the company.

Revised Full Year Guidance:

  • The company expects 2012 net sales growth of 4% to 6%.
    • Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies, the company expects 2012 net sales growth of 9% to 11%.
  • The company expects 2012 net earnings of $5.05 to $5.25 per diluted share, excluding non-comparable items, a record level for BorgWarner and up 13% to 18% compared with 2011.

Second Quarter Performance: "We executed very well in the second quarter," said Timothy Manganello, Chairman and CEO of BorgWarner. "Despite declines in light vehicle and commercial vehicle production in Europe, our largest market, the focus on fuel economy and improved emissions around the globe continued to drive growth for BorgWarner. Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies and 2011 dispositions, our net sales were up approximately 10% in the second quarter compared with second quarter 2011. Our growth was in line with global light vehicle production growth of 10%, although much of the industry's growth was in Japan, a market that comprises less than 5% of our sales. While growing our net sales in the quarter, we did an excellent job managing costs, which resulted in an all-time record operating income margin of 12.5%, excluding non-comparable items."

2012 Outlook: Based on weakening global economic conditions, the company adjusted its net sales and net earnings guidance for 2012. Annual net sales growth is now expected to be 4% to 6%, down from 10% to 12% previously. Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies, annual net sales growth is now expected to be 9% to 11%, down from 14% to 16% previously. Net earnings are now expected to be within a range of $5.05 to $5.25 per diluted share, excluding non-comparable items, down from $5.35 to $5.65 per diluted share previously. "Our outlook for Europe and for commercial vehicle markets around the world has been negatively impacted by the general slowdown in the global economy. Despite this, we expect to deliver industry-leading sales growth and record earnings this year," Manganello said.

Financial Results: Net sales were $1,856 million in second quarter 2012, up 2% from $1,819 million in second quarter 2011. Net earnings in the quarter were $121 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, compared with $162 million, or $1.31 per diluted share, in second quarter 2011. Second quarter 2012 net earnings included non-comparable items of $(0.36) per diluted share. Second quarter 2011 net earnings included non-comparable items of $0.19 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 Euro, decreased net sales by approximately $135 million, and decreased net earnings approximately $0.09 per diluted share, in second quarter 2012 compared with second quarter 2011.

For the first six months of 2012, net sales were $3,769 million, up 6% from $3,549 million in the first six months of 2011. Net earnings in the first six months of 2012 were $279 million, or $2.28 per diluted share, compared with $287 million, or $2.30 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2011. Net earnings in the first six months of 2012 included non-comparable items of $(0.33) per diluted share. Net earnings in the first six months of 2011 included non-comparable items of $0.19 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 Euro, decreased net sales by approximately $180 million, and decreased net earnings approximately $0.12 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2012 compared with the first six months of 2011.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $310 million in the first half of 2012 compared with $250 million in the first half of 2011. Capital expenditures, including tooling outlays, totaled $188 million in the first half of 2012, compared with $160 million in the first half of 2011. Balance sheet debt decreased by $176 million and cash on hand increased by $122 million  compared with the end of 2011. The $298 million decrease in balance sheet debt (net of cash) was primarily due to the company's settlement of its convertible senior notes, which was partially offset by share repurchases. The ratio of balance sheet debt (net of cash) to capital was 18.6% at the end of second quarter 2012 compared with 28.3% at the end of 2011.

Engine Group Results: Engine segment net sales were $1,270 million in second quarter 2012, down 2% from $1,298 million in the prior year's quarter. Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies and 2011 dispositions, net sales were up approximately 7% as a result of increased sales of engine timing systems, including variable cam timing products, greater sales of emissions products and the growth in turbocharger technology adoption around the world. Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes and non-controlling interest ("Adjusted EBIT") were $211 million in second quarter 2012, up 7% from $197 million in second quarter 2011.

Drivetrain Group Results: Drivetrain segment net sales were $594 million in second quarter 2012, up 13% from $526 million in the prior year's quarter. Excluding the negative impact of foreign currencies, net sales were up approximately 20% as a result of strong all-wheel drive system sales around the world, growth in traditional transmission component sales in North America and Korea and higher dual clutch transmission module sales in Europe. Adjusted EBIT was $55 million in second quarter 2012, up 40% from $39 million in second quarter 2011.

Recent Highlights:

  • BorgWarner signed a Master Purchase Agreement to sell its spark plug business to Federal-Mogul Corporation. Completion of the transaction is subject to regulatory approvals. The spark plug business was a small segment of the BERU operations acquired by BorgWarner in 2005. Sales were approximately $80 million in 2011.

In conjunction with the signing of the Master Purchase Agreement, the company wrote down $37.9 million of prior purchase accounting adjustments related to the spark plug business segment of the BERU acquisition. The company expects to complete the sale during the third quarter of 2012 at which time the company anticipates incurring restructuring-related costs associated with the disposal and future requirements of BERU's ongoing business.

BorgWarner will continue its focus on expanding the core BERU Systems products of glow plugs, diesel cold start systems and other gasoline ignition technologies.

  • BorgWarner's advanced low-friction silent chain and compact hydraulic tensioner help the Daihatsu Mira e:S minicar achieve 70.5 mpg,  rivaling the fuel economy of a hybrid vehicle. The "e:S", or "energy saving technology," will power several other minicars for the Japanese market. Daihatsu presented a Supplier's Excellence Award to BorgWarner to recognize its contributions toward the engine's outstanding fuel economy.
  • BorgWarner is providing its leading turbocharging technology for Build Your Dreams (BYD) Auto's 1.5-liter gasoline direct-injection (GDI) engine, the first developed in-house by a domestic Chinese company. BYD Auto recently launched the engine in its G6 sedan, the top-selling mid-sized sedan in China's domestic market. The fuel-efficient engine featuring BorgWarner's turbocharging technologies is also available for other models.
  • BorgWarner friction plates enable ZF's new full hybrid 8-speed automatic transmission to shift smoothly between the electric motor and the engine. The transmission launched in the 2012 Audi Q5 Hybrid Quattro and will also be featured in other vehicles soon.

At 9:30 a.m. ET today, a brief conference call concerning second quarter results will be webcast at: http://www.borgwarner.com/en/Investors/Webcasts/default.aspx.
