2004 Q2 TRW Auto Earnings Presentation

  1. 1. News Release TRW Automotive 12025 Tech Center Drive Livonia, Mich. 48150 USA Investor Relations Contact: Patrick R. Stobb (734) 853-6966 Media Contact: Manley Ford (734) 266-2616 TRW Automotive Reports Second-Quarter 2004 Financial Results; Increases Full-Year Outlook LIVONIA, MICHIGAN, July 27, 2004 — TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. (NYSE: TRW), the global leader in active and passive safety systems, today reported second- quarter 2004 results with sales of $3.2 billion, an increase of 6 percent over the prior year. The Company also reported net earnings for the quarter of $75 million or $0.74 per diluted share compared to net losses of $20 million, or ($0.23) per share in the prior year quarter. During the second quarter of 2004, the Company’s gross debt declined by $71 million, contributing to a first-half 2004 reduction of $565 million. “We are very pleased with our financial results and the improved debt position we achieved in the first half of the year,” said John C. Plant, president and chief executive officer. “We posted very solid earnings growth driven mainly by demand for our innovative safety related technologies and products and exceptional operating and financial performance despite facing a challenging pricing and inflationary environment. Although we maintain our cautious views on inflationary pressures and industry volumes for the second half of 2004 and beyond, we expect to exceed our full-year 2004 guidance provided at the beginning of the year.” For the first half of 2004, the Company reported sales of $6.1 billion and net earnings of $77 million or $0.77 per diluted share, which included expenses of $48 million or $0.48 per diluted share primarily for prepayment premiums on high yield notes redeemed with proceeds from the Company’s February 2004 initial public offering and other expenses related to a January 2004 bank debt refinancing. 1
  2. 2. First half earnings excluding these charges were $125 million or $1.26 per diluted share, assuming weighted average shares of 99.5 million. In comparison, the Company reported sales of $3.9 billion and net losses of $66 million for the four-month period ended June 27, 2003. This four-month period represents the reporting period following the February 28, 2003, acquisition of the former TRW Inc.’s automotive business by affiliates of The Blackstone Group L.P. (“Blackstone”) from Northrop Grumman Corporation. Prior to the acquisition, the predecessor company reported sales of $1.9 billion and net earnings of $31 million for the two-month period ended February 28, 2003. As a result of the Blackstone acquisition, certain consolidated and combined financial information relating to the second quarter and first half of 2003 periods contained within this release (labeled as pro forma) has been adjusted to illustrate the estimated pro forma effects of such acquisition, and a subsequent July 2003 debt refinancing, as if these transactions had occurred on January 1, 2003. Second-Quarter 2004 Compared to Pro Forma Second-Quarter 2003 The Company reported second-quarter 2004 sales of $3.2 billion, an increase of $186 million, or about 6 percent compared to prior year sales of $3.0 billion. The increase resulted primarily from increased customer volumes from new product areas and foreign currency translation, partially offset by pricing provided to customers and a reduction in sales due to divestitures. Operating income for second-quarter 2004 was $201 million, an increase of $11 million, or about 6% compared to the prior year pro forma operating income. This increase resulted primarily from a higher level of customer volumes, and to a lesser extent, currency translation, partially offset by the effects of ferrous metals inflation, a higher level of restructuring costs and the non- recurrence of certain unrealized foreign currency exchange gains that occurred in the prior year quarter. The Company reported second-quarter 2004 net earnings of $75 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, compared to pro forma net earnings of $54 million, or $0.60 per diluted share in the prior year. In addition to the higher level of operating income, net interest expense and the Company’s effective tax rate were both lower in this year’s quarter compared to last year. 2
  3. 3. The second quarter of 2004 included pre-tax restructuring costs of $8 million. The quarter also included amortization of intangibles, principally customer relationships resulting from the application of purchase accounting, of $8 million. In comparison, the prior year quarter included $2 million of pre-tax restructuring costs and amortization of intangibles of $9 million. Additionally, as referenced previously, the second-quarter 2003 included $15 million of unrealized foreign currency exchange gains that did not recur in the second-quarter 2004 primarily due to the Company’s hedging strategy on inter-company loans. The Company reported earnings before interest, losses on sales of receivables, gain (loss) on retirement of debt, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) of $324 million for second-quarter 2004. In the prior year, pro forma EBITDA was $312 million, which included $15 million of unrealized foreign currency exchange gains, as discussed previously. Excluding these gains, second-quarter 2004 EBITDA was up 9 percent compared to pro forma EBITDA in the prior year period. Please see the accompanying schedules for a reconciliation of EBITDA and pro forma EBITDA to the closest GAAP equivalent. First-Half 2004 Compared to Pro Forma First-Half 2003 The Company reported first-half 2004 sales of $6.1 billion, an increase of $296 million or 5 percent compared to prior year pro forma sales of $5.8 billion. Operating income for first-half 2004 was $354 million, a decrease of $13 million compared to the prior year pro forma operating income. This decrease occurred mainly as a result of a $39 million first quarter decline in net pension and OPEB income primarily due to the application of purchase accounting in 2003 and the absence of the previously mentioned unrealized foreign currency exchange gains of $15 million in second- quarter 2004. The Company reported first-half 2004 net earnings of $77 million, which compares to $102 million pro forma for the same period a year ago. As described previously, first-half 2004 results included expenses of $48 million or $0.48 per diluted share for charges associated with debt repayment transactions. First half earnings excluding these charges were $125 million or $1.26 per diluted share, an increase of $23 million or 23% from the prior year. The first half of 2004 included pre-tax restructuring costs of $13 million and amortization of intangibles, principally customer relationships, of $17 million. 3
  4. 4. In comparison, the prior year period included pre-tax restructuring and other unusual costs of $12 million and amortization of intangibles of $15 million. The Company reported EBITDA of $600 million for first-half 2004 compared to pro forma EBITDA of $607 million in the prior year. When compared to the prior year period, first-half 2004 EBITDA was negatively impacted by the previously mentioned $39 million first quarter decline in net pension and OPEB income and $15 million for unrealized foreign currency exchange gains in 2003, which did not recur in 2004. Excluding these two items, EBITDA increased by approximately 8 percent in the first half of 2004 compared to pro forma EBITDA in the prior year. Please see the accompanying schedules for a reconciliation of EBITDA and pro forma EBITDA to the closest GAAP equivalent. Capital/Liquidity As of June 25, 2004, the Company had $3,243 million of debt and $534 million of cash and marketable securities, providing for net debt (defined as debt less cash and marketable securities) of $2,709 million, a decline of $140 million from the March 26, 2004, level. When compared to year-end 2003, net debt at the end of second-quarter 2004 was down $255 million. Net cash provided by operating activities during the second quarter of 2004 totaled $207 million. For the first half of 2004, net cash used in operating activities totaled $2 million. Capital expenditures during the second quarter totaled $95 million, compared to $54 million in the prior year. Capital expenditures in first-half 2004 were $162 million, an increase of $31 million compared to the prior year pro forma. 2004 Outlook Based on the strong first half financial performance, the Company is increasing its full-year guidance from previous levels, and now expects sales in the range of $11.6 to $11.8 billion and diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.22 to $1.32. The earnings per share range includes the previously mentioned first half charges of $48 million or $0.48 per diluted share for expenses related to debt repayment and refinancing transactions. Excluding these charges, diluted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $1.70 to $1.80. 4
  5. 5. Full year EBITDA guidance is also revised to be in the range of $1,070 to $1,090 million, which is based on expected operating income in the range of $570 to $590 million, adding back expected depreciation and amortization of approximately $500 million. This guidance includes pre-tax expenses of approximately $33 million for amortization of intangibles, principally customer relationships, and approximately $35 million of expenses relating to restructuring initiatives. For third-quarter 2004, the Company expects revenue of approximately $2.7 billion and diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.09 to $0.14. Within this guidance, the Company also expects to incur pretax restructuring costs of approximately $10 million and amortization of intangibles, principally customer relationships, of approximately $8 million during the quarter.

  15. 15. TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. Reconciliation to Historical and Pro Forma EBITDA (unaudited) The reconciliation schedule below should be read in conjunction with the TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2003, which contains summary historical and pro forma financial data. The accompanying unaudited pro forma financial information is intended to give effect to the February 28, 2003 acquisition of the former TRW Inc.’s automotive business by affiliates of The Blackstone Group L.P. from Northrop Grumman Corporation and the July 22, 2003 refinancing of a portion of debt entered into in connection with the acquisition, as if these transactions had occurred on January 1, 2003. The EBITDA measure calculated in the following schedule is a measure used by management to evaluate operating performance. Management believes that EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net earnings (losses) as an indicator of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Additionally, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements.

  16. 16. TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. Reconciliation to Historical and Pro Forma EBITDA (unaudited) The reconciliation schedule below should be read in conjunction with the TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2003, which contains summary historical and pro forma financial data. The accompanying unaudited pro forma financial information is intended to give effect to the February 28, 2003 acquisition of the former TRW Inc.’s automotive business by affiliates of The Blackstone Group L.P. from Northrop Grumman Corporation and the July 22, 2003 refinancing of a portion of debt entered into in connection with the acquisition, as if these transactions had occurred on January 1, 2003. The EBITDA measure calculated in the following schedule is a measure used by management to evaluate operating performance. Management believes that EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net earnings (losses) as an indicator of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Additionally, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. Historical Pro Forma Six months ended June 25, 2004 June 27, 2003 (Dollars in millions) GAAP net (losses) earnings........................................................... $ 77 $ (35) Income tax expense ................................................................... 106 69 Interest expense, net of interest income..................................... 123 167 Loss on retirement of debt ......................................................... 48 — — Loss on sales of receivables....................................................... 25 GAAP operating income ............................................................... 354 226 Pro forma adjustments: — Inventory fair value adjustment ................................................ 42 — Depreciation and amortization.................................................. 4 — Purchased in-process research and development ...................... 85 — Other ......................................................................................... 10 Operating income .......................................................................... 354 367 Depreciation and amortization, net of a $5 million pro forma adjustment ....................................................................................... 246 240 EBITDA(1) ....................................................................................... $ 600 $ 607 (1) Reflects primarily non-cash decline in net pension and OPEB income of $39 million between the two first quarter periods.
