First Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales of $300.3 million for the first quarter of 2014, an increase of 7% compared to $281.7 million for the first quarter of 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $33.5 million for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $31.3 million for the first quarter of 2013. 
  • Adjusted net income was $11.4 million for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $9.3 million for the first quarter of 2013. 
  • On January 13, 2014, we acquired substantially all of the assets of United Starters and Alternators Industries, Inc. ("USA Industries"). USA Industries is a leading North American distributor of premium quality remanufactured and new alternators, starters, constant velocity (CV) axles and disc brake calipers for the light-duty aftermarket.
  • On April 30, 2014, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share payable on May 30, 2014 to stockholders of record as of May 16, 2014.  

"Our sales were strong compared  to last year with increased heavy duty and  aftermarket sales offsetting the light duty sales headwinds.  Last year's investments in China and Light Duty Aftermarket are paying dividends as we realized a 25% increase in North America Light Duty Aftermarket sales and a 72% increase in China sales compared to last year," stated Fred Knechtel, Remy International, Inc. Sr. Vice President, CFO and Treasurer.

Jay Pittas, Remy International, Inc. President and CEO commented, "Looking forward, Remy is well positioned to build on its accomplishments.  We see signs of improvement in the global economy and anticipate stronger sales in 2014.  Long term industry fundamentals remain favorable and support continued global growth in vehicle and component sales.  Our customer, product and regional diversification, OE and aftermarket mix, combined with our strategic investments to capture growth in the rapidly expanding markets of the world, provide a solid foundation for the future."

Use of Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Information

Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (U.S. GAAP) is the standard framework of guidelines for financial accounting. U.S. GAAP includes the standards, conventions, and rules accountants follow in recording and summarizing transactions and in the preparation of financial statements. In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Remy has provided Adjusted net income, Adjusted diluted earnings per share, and Adjusted EBITDA, non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, which are frequently used by management, analysts, investors and other interested parties.  Management believes that the non-U.S. GAAP financial measures presented provide a useful measure of Remy's financial performance since they exclude certain items which do not reflect ongoing operations.  A reconciliation of U.S. GAAP net income to Adjusted net income and Adjusted diluted earnings per share is provided herein.  Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as net income attributable to common stockholders before (i) interest expense–net, (ii) income tax expense, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) stock-based compensation expense, (v) net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, (vi) restructuring, other charges and other impairment charges, (vii) loss on extinguishment of debt and refinancing fees, (viii) executive officer separation cost, (ix) certain purchase accounting finished goods inventory step-up costs and (x) other adjustments.   Adjusted EBITDA as defined by the Company may differ from non-U.S. GAAP measures used by other companies and is not a measurement under U.S. GAAP.  There are limitations inherent in non-U.S. GAAP financial measures in that they exclude a variety of charges and credits that are required to be included in a U.S. GAAP presentation, and therefore do not present the full measure of the Company's recorded costs against its revenue.  Accordingly, in analyzing Remy's future financial performance, non-U.S. GAAP results presented should be considered together with U.S. GAAP results, rather than as an alternative to U.S. GAAP basis financial measures. Reconciliations of non-U.S. GAAP measures to related U.S. GAAP measures are presented in the financial schedules which accompany this release.

Reconciliation of non-U.S. GAAP financial measures

(Unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance defined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We use adjusted EBITDA as a supplement to our U.S. GAAP results in evaluating our business. Other companies in our industry define adjusted EBITDA differently from us and, as a result, our measure is not comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies in our industry.

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to common stockholders before interest expense–net, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, restructuring, other charges and other impairment charges, loss on extinguishment of debt and refinancing fees, executive officer separation cost, certain purchase accounting finished goods inventory step-up costs and other adjustments as set forth in the reconciliations provided below.

Adjusted EBITDA is one of the key factors upon which we assess performance. As an analytical tool, adjusted EBITDA assists us in comparing our performance over various reporting periods on a consistent basis because it excludes items that we do not believe reflect our ongoing operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our performance, as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to any other measure prescribed by U.S. GAAP. There are limitations to using non-U.S. GAAP measures such as adjusted EBITDA. Although we believe that adjusted EBITDA may make an evaluation of our operating performance more consistent because it removes items that do not reflect our ongoing operations, adjusted EBITDA excludes certain financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to its most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, net income attributable to common stockholders.
