Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) today announced strong full-year 2015 results, reporting a net income attributable to Visteon of $2,284 million, or $52.63 per diluted share, including $2,286 million of net income associated with discontinued operations.

Full-year sales were $3,245 billion, an increase of $659 million or 25 percent compared with 2014. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined below, was $282 million for the year, an increase of $105 million or 59 percent compared with 2014. Adjusted free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined below, was a positive $311 million for the full year 2015.

In 2015, customers awarded Visteon a record $1.35 billion in electronics new business wins, amounting to $4.3 billion of lifetime revenue. The ongoing backlog, defined as cumulative remaining life-of-program booked sales, was approximately $15.2 billion as of Dec. 31, 2015, or 4.9 times 2015 sales. Adjusting for currency and changes in market demand forecasts, Visteon's backlog increased 8 percent in 2015.

"We delivered a strong finish to a year of many accomplishments, achieving significant year-over-year profit improvement despite currency challenges," said Sachin Lawande, Visteon president and CEO. "In 2015 Visteon solidified its focus on vehicle cockpit electronics and software by completing the sale of our 70 percent interest in Halla Visteon Climate Control (HVCC). We also achieved the upper range of targeted synergies related to the Johnson Controls electronics acquisition, returned $500 million in capital to shareholders, and announced a $1.75 billion special cash distribution to shareholders and an additional $500 million repurchase authorization. We retain a substantial net cash position compared with our peer group."

Lawande added:  "I am excited about the opportunities ahead for Visteon as the only company focused on vehicle cockpit electronics that offers products across all segments of this fast-growing market. We are winning significant new business and have a robust strategy in place to drive further growth through our cockpit electronics and software focus, as well as customer and geographic expansion."

Fourth Quarter in Review

Sales of $809 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased $21 million from $788 million for the same quarter a year earlier. An additional $15 million of sales were classified as discontinued operations.

Electronics sales totaled $775 million, an increase of $31 million from the fourth quarter of 2014. The year-over-year improvement was primarily related to increased production volumes and new business, partially offset by unfavorable currency. For the Electronics Product Group on a regional basis, Asia accounted for 39 percent of sales, Europe 31 percent, North America 29 percent and South America 1 percent.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $114 million, compared with $117 million a year earlier. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $63 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared with $64 million a year earlier.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Electronics Product Group, including Corporate costs, was $83 million compared with $58 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. The improvement was driven by increased production volumes, new business and cost efficiencies. Adjusted EBITDA for the Other Product Group was a loss of $4 million, compared with $17 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. The decrease was primarily due to the sale of the Germany interiors facility and the non-recurrence of a one-time tax benefit in 2014.

For the fourth quarter of 2015, Visteon reported net income attributable to Visteon of $21 million, or $0.52 per diluted share. This included a $105 million charge related to the sale of the Berlin, Germany, interiors operation; $28 million of restructuring and other transaction costs; and a $92 million gain from discontinued operations for the quarter.

Cash and Debt Balances

As of Dec. 31, 2015, Visteon had global cash and short-term investment balances totaling $2,783 million. This balance does not include approximately $325 million, net of taxes received in early 2016, related to refunded withholding taxes from the HVCC transaction completed in 2015. Total debt as of Dec. 31, 2015, was $384 million.

For the fourth quarter of 2015, Visteon generated $64 million of cash from operations, compared with $104 million in the same period a year earlier. Capital expenditures in the quarter were $36 million. Adjusted free cash flow was $62 million in the quarter, compared with $47 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. Cash flows for both periods included results related to discontinued operations.

Visteon generated $89 million of cash from operations related to the Electronics Product Group and Corporate costs in the fourth quarter. Electronics and Corporate capital expenditures totaled $39 million, and adjusted free cash flow for Electronics and Corporate totaled $66 million in the quarter.

Sale of Germany Interiors Operations

On Dec. 1, 2015, Visteon completed the sale of its non-core automotive interiors plant in Berlin, Germany, to APCH Automotive Plastic Components Holding GmbH. Visteon contributed cash of approximately $141 million and other assets and liabilities including pension-related liabilities of $182 million. Visteon also will make a 30 million Euro payment by Nov. 30, 2016, as part of this transaction. This completed the sale of Visteon's only remaining interiors operation not covered by the 2014 agreement to divest the majority of the interiors business to Reydel Automotive Holdings B.V., as Visteon focuses on its automotive cockpit electronics business.

Share Repurchase

On Dec. 16, 2015, Visteon entered into a stock repurchase agreement with a third-party financial institution to purchase shares of its common stock complying with the provisions of Rule 10b5-1 and Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("10b5-1 Share Repurchase Program"). The new 10b5-1 Share Repurchase Program is open until March 1, 2016, with the maximum purchase amount of $150 million.  In addition to the 10b5-1 Share Repurchase Program, the board has approved execution of an accelerated share repurchase program to complete the balance of the current $500 million share repurchase authorization.  Visteon will complete the accelerated share repurchase program by year end.  Visteon's board of directors, on Dec. 9, 2015, had authorized $500 million of share repurchase of its shares of common stock through Dec. 31, 2016.

Special Distribution to Shareholders

On Jan. 22, 2016, Visteon paid a special distribution of $43.40 per share of its common stock outstanding as of Jan. 15, 2016, or approximately $1.75 billion in the aggregate. The special distribution is part of the previously announced plan to return $2.5 billion-$2.75 billion of cash to shareholders by June 2016.

Full-Year 2016 Outlook

Visteon projects Electronics Product Group 2016 sales of $3.2 billion. Adjusted EBITDA for the Electronics Product Group and Corporate Segment is projected in the range of $305 million to $335 million. Adjusted free cash flow, as defined below, for the Electronics and Corporate Segment is projected in the range of $110 million to $150 million.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(Unaudited, Dollars in Millions)

Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's performance that management believes is useful to investors because the excluded items may vary significantly in timing or amounts and/or may obscure trends useful in evaluating and comparing the Company's operating activities across reporting periods. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to the Company adjusted to eliminate the impact of  depreciation and amortization,  restructuring expense, net interest expense, loss on debt extinguishment, equity in net loss (income) of non-consolidated affiliates, loss on divestiture, gain on non-consolidated affiliate transactions, other net expense, (benefit from) provision for income taxes, discontinued operations, net income attributable to non-controlling interests, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, pension settlement gains and other non-operating gains and losses.  Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under U.S. GAAP and does not purport to be a substitute for net income as an indicator of operating performance or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and is not intended to be a measure of cash flow available for management's discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. In addition, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA (i) as a factor in incentive compensation decisions, (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of the Company's business strategies, and (iii) because the Company's credit agreements use similar measures for compliance with certain covenants.

Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow: Free cash flow and Adjusted free cash flow are presented as supplemental measures of the Company's liquidity that management believes are useful to investors in analyzing the Company's ability to service and repay its debt. The Company defines Free cash flow as cash flow provided from operating activities less capital expenditures. The Company defines Adjusted free cash flow as cash flow provided from operating activities less capital expenditures, as further adjusted for restructuring and transformation-related payments. Free cash flow and Adjusted free cash flow include amounts associated with discontinued operations. Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of Free cash flow and Adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Free cash flow and Adjusted free cash flow are not recognized terms under U.S. GAAP and do not purport to be a substitute for cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Free cash flow and Adjusted free cash flow have limitations as analytical tools as they do not reflect cash used to service debt and do not reflect funds available for investment or other discretionary uses. In addition, the Company uses Free cash flow and Adjusted free cash flow (i) as factors in incentive compensation decisions and (ii) for planning and forecasting future periods.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share: Adjusted net income and Adjusted earnings per share are presented as supplemental measures that management believes are useful to investors in analyzing the Company's  profitability. The Company defines Adjusted net income as net income attributable to Visteon adjusted to eliminate the impact of restructuring expense, loss on debt extinguishment, loss on divestiture, gain on non-consolidated affiliate transactions, other net expenses, other non-operating gains and losses and discontinued operations. The Company defines Adjusted earnings per share as Adjusted net income divided by diluted shares. Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of Adjusted net income and Adjusted earnings per share may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
