Fourth Quarter 2015 Financial Review

Sales revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 increased to $296.9 million, a 10.0 percent improvement compared with fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Sales revenue during the quarter was negatively impacted by market pricing for scrap metal of $5.5 million and foreign currency translation of $4.7 million.

Gross profit was $20.2 million compared with $18.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Gross profit as a percent of sales was 6.8 percent compared to the 6.9 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Scrap metal pricing, foreign currency exchange and plant inefficiencies due to the ramp up of significant new product launches, impacted the gross profit results in the quarter.

Selling, general and administrative costs were $20.3 million, or 6.8 percent of sales revenue compared with $17.3 million, or 6.4 percent of sales revenue in the prior year quarter. The 40 basis point year-over-year increase in SG&A as a percent of sales was impacted by $2.5 million of one-time expenses related to our Wellington investigation and financing charges.  Excluding these items, SG&A would have improved by 40 basis points vs the prior year quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $8.9 million, compared to $11.5 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA includes the previously mentioned $2.5 million one-time expenses associated with the Wellington investigation and financing charges.

Net loss for the quarter was $2.5 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share in the prior year quarter. The decline in net income was driven by the $2.5 million one-time expenses associated with the Wellington investigation and financing charges and an increase in interest expense, which was partially offset by an increase in income tax benefit compared to the year ago quarter. The fourth quarter pre-tax loss generated a tax benefit. The prior year quarter results included one-time reversal of the Mexico deferred tax asset valuation of $2.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted share and one-time acquisition fees, net of tax, of $1.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share.

Our effective income tax rate was 28.2% percent for 2015, compared to 17.5% percent for the prior year quarter.  The prior year included one-time reversal of the Mexico deferred tax asset valuation of $2.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted share and additional research and development tax credits related to its business activities from 2010 to 2013, improving earnings per share by $0.14 per share diluted . In addition, for 2014 and 2015, foreign tax rates of countries in which the Company operates are in all cases less than the U.S. statutory federal income tax rate, having a favorable impact on the effective rate.

At October 31, 2015, cash and cash equivalents were $13.1 million, total debt was $301.0 million and stockholders' equity was $140.9 million

Recent Events

During the fourth quarter of 2015, Shiloh launched and received production approval for 147 new products. For the full year, there have been 527 launches and production approvals compared to 175 in 2014.  The Company generally incurs upfront ramp-up expenses associated with new product launches prior to revenue generation.

Shiloh expects the first quarter of 2016 to be challenging but also anticipates improvement in profitability in future periods as it begins to see the benefits of improving mix of business.  In addition, the Company expects to transition the portfolio away from lower margin commodity products and capitalize on its strategy of focusing on higher margin, higher value-add products.   This transition starts with the new business wins. Shiloh's successful new business pursuits in 2015 were focused on the platforms and products that it is building our strategy around. In 2016, the Company has 238 launches planned, which will allow more focused and efficient launches while keeping revenue trajectory more closely aligned with growth forecasts for auto production.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures: "EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA," and "adjusted earnings per share (EPS)." 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, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted earnings per share 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.
