Dana Holding Corporation Reports Third-Quarter Profit of $46 Million; Achieves Positive Free Cash Flow for Sixth Consecutive Quarter, Raises Full-Year Guidance

Oct 28, 2010, 07:00 ET from Dana Holding Corporation

MAUMEE, Ohio, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dana Holding Corporation (NYSE: DAN) today announced strong third-quarter 2010 results.  Highlights for the quarter included:

  • Delivering positive net income of $46 million
  • Achieving adjusted EBITDA of $148 million on sales of $1.5 billion with adjusted EBITDA margin of 9.8 percent
  • Raising full-year adjusted EBITDA outlook to a range of $530 million to $550 million
  • Generating free cash flow of $59 million, marking sixth consecutive positive quarter
  • Increasing net cash position to $184 million

The company reported quarterly net income of $46 million, a substantial increase over the net loss of $38 million reported during the same period last year.  Third-quarter adjusted EBITDA was $148 million, a 47-percent improvement over the $101 million reported for the same period in 2009, and adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter improved to 9.8 percent, compared with 7.6 percent one year ago.  Sales for the period were $1,516 million, up from $1,329 million for the third quarter last year.

Dana achieved positive free cash flow for the sixth consecutive quarter, generating $59 million during the third quarter, compared to free cash flow of $145 million one year ago.  Total cash at the end of the third quarter was $1,137 million, resulting in a net cash position of $184 million – an increase of $64 million from the end of the prior quarter and $240 million from the end of last year.

As a result of its solid third-quarter performance and based on its anticipated 2010 full-year sales of approximately $6 billion, the company has improved its full-year adjusted EBITDA outlook to a range of $530 million to $550 million.  Dana has also indicated that it now expects to achieve positive free cash flow in a range of $275 million to $300 million in 2010.

"Dana had a strong third quarter with adjusted EBITDA of $148 million and a substantial improvement in profits," said Dana President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Sweetnam.  "I am particularly pleased that we've begun to demonstrate consistent performance, as evidenced by several consecutive quarters of increasingly positive results.  This is the result of sound execution by our global team.

"Each of our business segments – light vehicle driveline, power technologies, commercial vehicle, and off-highway – again generated increases in EBITDA during the third quarter," he added. "This speaks to the solid progress we continue to make in reinforcing our competitive position and in winning profitable net new business in growing markets."

Nine-Month Results

Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, was $410 million, a nearly $200 million increase from $211 million during the period last year.  Sales for the first nine months of 2010 were $4,550 million, which compares with $3,735 million during the same period one year ago.  Dana swung to net income of $24 million in the first nine months of 2010, compared to a net loss of $195 million during the same period in 2009.

Non-GAAP Measures

This release refers to adjusted EBITDA, which we've defined to be earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash equity grant expense, restructuring expense, and other nonrecurring items (gain/loss on debt extinguishment or divestitures, impairment, etc).  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure, and the measure currently being used by Dana as the primary measure of its operating segment performance.  The most significant impact to Dana's ongoing results of operations as a result of applying fresh start accounting following our emergence from bankruptcy was higher depreciation and amortization.

By using adjusted EBITDA, which is a performance measure that excludes depreciation and amortization, the comparability of results was enhanced.  Management also believes that adjusted EBITDA is an important measure since the financial covenants of our primary debt agreements are adjusted EBITDA-based, and our management incentive performance programs are based, in part, on adjusted EBITDA.  Because it is a non-GAAP measure, adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for net income (loss) or other reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.  The financial information accompanying this release provides a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented to the reported income (loss) before income taxes, which is a GAAP measure.

Free cash flow is also a non-GAAP financial measure, which we have defined as Cash provided by operations (a GAAP measure) exclusive of any bankruptcy claim-related payments included therein, less capital spending.  This measure is useful in evaluating the operational cash flow of the company inclusive of the spending required to maintain the operations.
