23 Jul, 2012, 16:30 ET from Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc.

NEW ALBANY, Ohio, July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVGI) today reported revenues of $242.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of approximately 17% compared to $206.8 million for the prior-year period.  Operating income for the second quarter of 2012 was $19.0 million compared to $11.3 million for the second quarter of 2011.  Net income was $13.2 million for the second quarter, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to a loss of $2.2 million, or ($0.08) per diluted share in the prior-year quarter.  Included in the second quarter of 2012 results is a loss of approximately $0.4 million related to the mark to market of the Company's foreign exchange contracts for the period.  Included in the results for the second quarter of 2011 are $7.4 million of one-time expenses related to the early extinguishment of debt for the period.    

"We are very pleased with our second quarter results, which represents our thirteenth consecutive quarter of operating income improvement, when excluding impairment and restructuring charges, and surpasses the first quarter of 2012 as our highest revenue and operating income levels since the fourth quarter of 2006," said Mervin Dunn, President and CEO of Commercial Vehicle Group.  "While there has been recent public pessimism related to uncertain economic and market conditions in the near term, we could not be more excited about our opportunities for future organic growth and acquisitions.  We are not focused solely on the near-term North American truck industry, but remain focused on the global commercial vehicle industry for the next several years," added Mr. Dunn.

The Company did not have any outstanding borrowings under its asset-based revolver at June 30, 2012 and, as a result, was not subject to any financial maintenance covenants.  In addition, the Company had approximately $87.6 million of cash on its balance sheet at June 30, 2012 with an additional $37.0 million of availability under its asset-based revolver. 

"In addition to our continued improvements in revenue and operating income, we are pleased to report diluted earnings per share of 46 cents, our highest since the fourth quarter of 2006," said Chad M. Utrup, Chief Financial Officer of Commercial Vehicle Group.  "Our cash and liquidity position remains strong and we are focused on putting this capital to use in the best ways possible, which includes continued investments towards organic growth and cost improvement programs, as well as acquisitions, both domestically and internationally," added Mr. Utrup.
