UPDATES FULL YEAR NET SALES AND NET EARNINGS GUIDANCE FOR WEAKER THAN EXPECTED MARKET CONDITIONS

Jul 30, 2015, 08:00 ET from BorgWarner Inc.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BorgWarner Inc. (NYSE: BWA) today reported second quarter 2015 U.S. GAAP net earnings of $0.65 per diluted share. Excluding non-comparable items, net earnings were $0.75 per diluted share. Net sales were $2,032 million in the quarter.

Second Quarter Highlights:

  • U.S. GAAP net sales of $2,032 million, down 7% compared with second quarter 2014.
    • The impact of foreign currencies decreased second quarter 2015 net sales growth by approximately 11% compared with second quarter 2014.
    • Excluding the impact of foreign currencies, net sales were up 4% compared with second quarter 2014.
  • U.S. GAAP net earnings of $0.65 per diluted share.
    • Excluding the $(0.08) per diluted share impact of restructuring and the $(0.02) per diluted share impact of tax adjustments, net earnings were $0.75 per diluted share.
    • The impact of foreign currencies decreased net earnings by approximately $0.09 per diluted share in second quarter 2015 compared with second quarter 2014.
  • U.S. GAAP operating income of $243 million.
    • Excluding the $20 million pretax impact of restructuring expense, operating income was $262 million, or 12.9% of net sales, down from 13.5% in second quarter 2014.

Second Quarter Results: "Our operations performed well in the second quarter despite a challenging environment for growth," said James R. Verrier, President and Chief Executive Officer, BorgWarner. "The demand for our advanced powertrain technology, designed to improve fuel economy, emissions and vehicle performance, remained strong around the globe, but our growth was impacted by an unfavorable mix of light vehicle production in North America, slower light vehicle production growth in China and weak commercial vehicle markets around the world. Despite this, our operating income margin was an impressive 12.9% in the quarter, excluding non-comparable items."

2015 Guidance: Demand for the company's advanced powertrain technology remains strong around the globe. However, due to the impact of weaker than expected market conditions on its business, particularly slower light vehicle production growth in China, unfavorable mix of light vehicle production in North America and weak commercial vehicle markets around the world, the company has updated its 2015 full year guidance:

  • Net sales growth is now expected to be within a range of -5.5% to -2.5% compared with 2014, down from -4% to 0% previously.
  • Net earnings per share, excluding non-comparable items, is now expected to be within a range of $2.95 to $3.10 per diluted share compared with a previous range of $3.10 to $3.30 per diluted share.
  • Operating income, as a percentage of net sales, excluding non-comparable items, is now expected to be "approximately 13%" compared with "above 13%", previously.

Financial Results: Net sales were $2,032 million in second quarter 2015, down 7% from $2,197 million in second quarter 2014. Net earnings in the quarter were $148 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, compared with $190 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, in second quarter 2014. Second quarter 2015 net earnings included non-comparable items of $(0.10) per diluted share. Second quarter 2014 net earnings included a non-comparable item of $(0.06) per diluted share. These items are listed in a table below as reconciliations of non-U.S. GAAP measures, which are provided by the company for comparison with other results, and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. The impact of foreign currencies decreased net sales by approximately $248 million and decreased net earnings by approximately $0.09 per diluted share in second quarter 2015 compared with second quarter 2014.

For the first six months of 2015, net sales were $4,016 million, down 6% from $4,281 million in the first six months of 2014. Net earnings in the first six months of 2015 were $327 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, compared with $349 million, or $1.52 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2014. Net earnings in the first six months of 2015 included net non-comparable items of $(0.09) per diluted share. Net earnings in the first six months of 2014 included a non-comparable item of $(0.19) per diluted share. These items are listed in a table below as reconciliations of non-U.S. GAAP measures, which are provided by the company for comparison with other results, and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. The impact of foreign currencies decreased net sales by approximately $470 million and decreased net earnings by approximately $0.18 per diluted share in the first six months of 2015 compared with the first six months of 2014.

Excluding the impact of foreign currencies, Adjusted EBIT was $252 million, up 4% from second quarter 2014.

Excluding the impact of foreign currencies, primarily the Euro, net sales were down 3% from the prior year's quarter, primarily due to lower sales of all-wheel drive systems. Adjusted EBIT was $72 million in second quarter 2015, down 19% from $89 million in second quarter 2014. Excluding the impact of foreign currencies, Adjusted EBIT was $76 million, down 14% from second quarter 2014.
