Visteon Announces Second-Quarter 2021 Results

  • Sales of $610 million; 59% increase Y/Y excluding currency
  • Net loss of $11 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $30 million, a Y/Y increase of $33 million
  • Net cash position of $115 million at the end of Q2
  • First-half new business wins of $3.2 billion
    • Industry’s largest all-digital cluster multi-region program with global OEM
    • Continued global growth of Android-based infotainment
    • Fourth two-wheeler customer added for digital cockpits

VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich., July 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Visteon Corporation (NASDAQ: VC) today announced second-quarter net sales of $610 million, representing a year-over-year increase of 59% excluding the impact of currency. Total industry production increased 49% while Visteon’s top customer production increased 55% in the same period. The company's sales performance represents a 4%1 growth-over-market compared to the production volumes of its customers.

Gross margin in the second quarter was $35 million, and net loss attributable to Visteon was $11 million or $0.39 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure as defined below, was $30 million for the second quarter or 4.9% of sales, an increase of $33 million compared to the prior year. Improvements in adjusted EBITDA margin were largely driven by higher volume, cost efficiencies initiated in 2020, and higher engineering recoveries. Incremental supply chain costs related to semiconductor shortages and the reversal of temporary austerity measures taken last year in response to the pandemic partially offset some of these improvements.

The company won $3.2 billion in new business during the first half of the year. This includes a $640 million second-quarter expansion of a previously awarded digital cluster program, bringing total lifetime value for that program to $1.5 billion. The company also increased its presence in the two-wheeler market by adding a fourth customer for an all-digital cluster featuring embedded connectivity – a win that reflects the digital-cockpit transformation underway in the motorcycle category similar to what is occurring with passenger vehicles.

Visteon launched seven new products in the second quarter, and remains on track to deliver approximately 50 new programs for the full year. Second quarter launch highlights include a next-generation 3D high-definition digital cluster for Peugeot, and the introduction of the company's connected Android-based infotainment system on vehicles manufactured by Skoda and Geely. The infotainment system provides enhanced in-car connectivity, streaming, over-the-air updates and other services.

For the first half, cash generated by operations was $1 million and capital expenditures were $33 million. Adjusted free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined below, for the first half of 2021 was a use of cash of $7 million, compared to a use of cash of $66 million for the same period in 2020. The company ended the second quarter with cash of $470 million and debt of $355 million, representing a net cash position of $115 million.

“The strength of Visteon’s digital product portfolio supports the industry trends of digitalization and connectivity and has led to our continued market outperformance even in a supply constrained environment,” said President and CEO Sachin Lawande. “The continued strength of our new business wins, product launch cadence and focus on sustainable business practices have built the foundation for our company’s continued long-term growth.”

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 divestiture, equity in net income of non-consolidated affiliates, gain on non-consolidated affiliate transactions, provision for income taxes, discontinued operations, net income attributable to non-controlling interests, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and other gains and losses not reflective of the Company's ongoing operations. 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, including intangibles. The Company defines adjusted free cash flow as cash flow provided from operating activities less capital expenditures, including intangibles as further adjusted for restructuring related payments. 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.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Earnings (Loss) 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, providing comparability between periods by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of recurring business operating results. The Company believes management and investors benefit from referring to these supplemental measures in assessing company performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income attributable to Visteon adjusted to eliminate the impact of restructuring, net, loss on divestiture, gain on non-consolidated affiliate transactions, discontinued operations, other gains and losses not reflective of the Company's ongoing operations and related tax effects. The Company defines adjusted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by diluted shares.
