  • New product wins represented an expected $56 million in sales over the life-of-program.
  • Successful launch of an additional ShilohCore dash panel line in China, expanded production to over 1.1 million vehicles across multiple global platforms, and further solidified Shiloh's global reach.
  • Gross profit was $16.0 million or 6.4 as a percent of sales, compared with $18.7 million or 7.6% as a percent of sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Excluding a $5.9 million scrap metal market pricing impact ("scrap impact"), gross margin would have expanded by 145 basis points to 8.7%, representing an improvement of 110 basis points over the first quarter of 2015.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $8.7 million, compared with $14.0 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA increased by 4.0 percent excluding the scrap impact.
  • Net loss per diluted share was $0.29 per share which included a negative $0.22 per share scrap impact and a negative $0.07 per share impact from non-recurring professional fees.
  • Generated $18.7 million of cash from operating activities during the quarter, an improvement compared to $2.5 million in the year ago quarter.
  • Reduced long term debt by $22.5 million during the quarter to $276.4 million.
  • Appointed Jay Potter as Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer in December 2015. Mr. Potter is an accomplished executive with extensive experience providing financial oversight for high-growth companies.

"During the first quarter, Shiloh's growth outpaced the global light vehicle production rate on a constant currency basis while we improved the efficiency of our launch rollouts," according to Ramzi Hermiz, president and chief executive officer.  "Our recent new business awards have aligned our technology offerings with our available capacities, resulting in improved cash management and a path towards greater profitability.  Our CastLight business, the most global and fastest growing of our three brand lines, has been awarded nearly 60 percent of the new business won in the first quarter," said Hermiz. "Our lightweighting strategy provides our customers with products that improve the performance and safety of their vehicles in an environmentally friendly matter.  I am confident that our continued focus on operational excellence will lead us to sustainable, profitable, global growth."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures This press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures: "EBITDA," and "adjusted EBITDA." We define EBITDA as net income / (loss) before interest, taxes, stock compensation, depreciation and amortization. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income / (loss) before interest, taxes, stock compensation, depreciation, amortization, restructuring items and other adjustments described in the reconciliations accompanying this press release. Adjusted earnings per share exclude certain income and expense items described in the reconciliation accompanying this press release.  We use EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA as supplements to information provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in evaluating our business and they are included in this press release because they are principal factors upon which our management assesses performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are set forth below. The non-GAAP measures presented above are not measures of performance under GAAP. These measures should not be considered as alternatives for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  Other companies in our industry may define these non-GAAP measures differently than we do and, as a result, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies in our industry; and certain of our non-GAAP financial measures exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance.  Given the inherent uncertainty regarding special items and other expense in any future period, a reconciliation of forward-looking financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is not feasible. The magnitude of these items, however, may be significant.
