Remy International, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results

PENDLETON, Ind., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Remy International, Inc. (NASDAQ: REMY), a leading worldwide manufacturer, remanufacturer, and distributor of starters and alternators for light vehicle and commercial vehicle applications, locomotive products and hybrid electric motors, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.  

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales of $262.8 million for the third quarter of 2013, a decline of 5% compared to $277.4 million for the third quarter of 2012. Prior year results included high inventory stock builds by North American retail aftermarket customers and light duty original equipment sales on customer programs ended per schedule in 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $33.0 million for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $35.7 million for the third quarter of 2012. Third quarter 2013 results were impacted by lower volume, mix, price and investments in inventory for increased light duty aftermarket availability and China ramp up costs. Cost reductions and operational efficiencies partially offset these impacts.
  • Net income attributable to common stockholders was $10.4 million for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $96.5 million for the third quarter of 2012.
    • Third quarter 2013 results included $1.5 million in restructuring charges
    • Third quarter 2012 results included the reversal of an $84.7 million valuation allowance on our deferred tax asset balance, as well as $5.4 million of charges primarily related to restructuring activities and actions to improve future operating performance.
  • New business awarded and launched during the quarter:
    • Awarded several light duty OE starter programs with key customers
    • Launched first alternator with LIN regulator in China
    • Awarded heavy duty alternator and starter business at Yunnei Power Engine
    • Awarded additional hybrid business with Via and Scania
    • Secured agreements with multiple North American and European aftermarket customers
    • Released new part numbers to expand late model product portfolio
  • On October 29, 2013, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share payable on November 27, 2013 to shareholders of record as of November 13, 2013.

Fred Knechtel, Remy International, Inc. Sr. Vice President, CFO and Treasurer, added, "Sales pressures continued in the third quarter, as sales were lower than both the previous quarter and prior year quarter.  Despite this pressure, Remy was able to deliver greater operating income results in the third quarter compared to both of these periods.  These achievements are due to our continued efforts to drive for sustainable operational improvements and aggressively control spending."

Jay Pittas, Remy International, Inc. President and CEO commented, "We took aggressive cost actions as a short term response to general market conditions.  For the long term we continued to make necessary investments in our business to grow revenue and increase operating efficiencies.  We strive to have a balanced portfolio between North America and the rest of the world and between the aftermarket and OE, with a flexible cost structure to support all market conditions.  The Remy team will continue to be focused on driving superior long-term value for shareholders.  I am excited about the future and believe that we are well positioned with our portfolio of products to achieve our goals."

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 EBITDA, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, which is frequently used by management, analysts, investors and other interested parties.  Management believes that the non-U.S. GAAP financial measure presented provides a useful measure of Remy's financial performance since it excludes certain items which do not reflect ongoing operations including costs associated with restructuring costs, impairment of assets related to capital investments, interest on our debt and non-cash stock-based compensation charges.  Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as net income attributable to common stockholders before (i) interest expense–net, (ii) income tax expense (benefit), (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 and (ix) 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.

Remy International, Inc. 
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 (benefit), 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 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.
