Commercial Vehicle Group Announces First Quarter 2013 Results

NEW ALBANY, Ohio, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVGI) today reported revenues of $177.8 million for the first quarter of 2013, a decline of $59.2 million, or 25.0%, compared to $237.0 million for the first quarter of 2012.  Operating loss for the first quarter was $0.3 million compared to operating income of $18.5 million for the prior-year period.  Net loss was $4.6 million for the first quarter, or ($0.16) per diluted share, compared to net income of $12.0 million, or $0.42 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter.  Diluted shares outstanding were 28.5 million for the quarter compared to 28.4 million for the prior-year period. 

"Our first quarter revenues reflect the impact of lower build rates in both the North American Class 8 truck market and the global construction market as our global OEM truck revenues declined approximately 34% compared to the first quarter of 2012 and our construction market revenues declined approximately 30% for this same period," stated Mervin Dunn, President and CEO of Commercial Vehicle Group.  "We continue to believe the market conditions we experienced at the end of last year and into this first quarter relate to depressed short-term heavy truck and construction build rates, and we expect to see gradual improvements in both of these end markets through the balance of this year," added Mr. Dunn. 

"As mentioned on our last earnings call, we expected Class 8 truck build rates to be up slightly and the global construction market to be relatively flat sequentially from the previous quarter.  Class 8 truck build rates for the first quarter were slightly lower than the fourth quarter and our global construction sales were relatively flat as we expected.  Overall, our first quarter revenues were flat compared to the fourth quarter 2012 with the exception of the increase from our acquisitions," stated Chad M. Utrup, Chief Financial Officer for Commercial Vehicle Group.  "While our revenues were essentially flat, we are pleased with our operating income improvement of approximately $2.0 million from the prior quarter, which highlights our ongoing commitment to reducing costs.  Looking ahead, we expect our end markets to improve through the balance of 2013.  We remain focused on pursuing our long-term strategy of organic growth and growth through acquisitions while focusing on margin enhancement," added Mr. Utrup

The Company did not have any outstanding borrowings under its asset-based revolver at March 31, 2013 and, as a result, was not subject to any financial maintenance covenants.  In addition, the Company had approximately $65.3 million of cash on its balance sheet at March 31, 2013 with an additional $37.2 million of availability under its asset-based revolver for total liquidity of approximately $102.5 million.  The Company does not expect to trigger the requirement to comply with financial maintenance covenants in 2013.
