Tenneco Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results

  • Record-high second quarter revenue, outpacing industry production with growth in all three reporting segments
  • Strong cash generation driven by working capital improvements
  • CEOs selected for the new aftermarket and ride performance company and the powertrain technology company

LAKE FOREST, Ill.--()--Tenneco Inc. (NYSE: TEN) reported second quarter net income of $50 million, or 98-cents per diluted share, versus a second quarter net loss of $3 million, or 5-cents per diluted share in 2017. Second quarter 2018 adjusted net income was $99 million, or $1.92 per diluted share, compared with $101 million, or $1.88 per diluted share last year.

Revenue

Total revenue in the second quarter was $2.537 billion, up 9% year-over-year, with revenue growth in Clean Air, Ride Performance and Aftermarket. On a constant currency basis, total revenue increased 8% driven by strong commercial truck and off-highway programs and higher volumes and incremental content on light vehicles.

On a constant currency basis, value-add revenue increased 6% to $1.889 billion, significantly outpacing industry production*. Ride Performance revenue increased 13%, Clean Air revenue rose 5%, and global Aftermarket revenue was up 1% compared to last year.

EBIT

Second quarter EBIT (earnings before interest, taxes and noncontrolling interests) was $113 million, compared to $27 million last year. Adjusted EBIT was $175 million, versus $178 million last year. Volume increased in both light vehicle and commercial truck and off-highway applications. Steel commodity costs, launch costs related to a major truck platform and aftermarket versus OE revenue mix impacted margins.

   
Q2 2018 Q2 2017
 
EBIT as a percent of revenue 4.5% 1.2%
EBIT as a percent of value-add revenue 5.9% 1.5%
 
Adjusted EBIT as a percent of revenue 6.9% 7.7%
Adjusted EBIT as a percent of value-add revenue 9.1% 10.0%
 

Cash

Cash generated by operations was $75 million, compared with $92 million a year ago. Improvements in working capital were offset by payments made during the second quarter 2018 of $17 million for antitrust settlements, and $11 million for acquisition related payments. During the quarter, the company returned $12 million to shareholders through a dividend payment of 25-cents per common share.

“Tenneco’s strong organic growth was two times industry production growth in the second quarter, with higher revenues in all three reporting segments, led by double-digit growth in intelligent suspension technologies and commercial truck and off-highway revenue,” said Brian Kesseler, CEO Tenneco. “In line with our guidance last quarter, the Tenneco team delivered sequential margin improvement in all three reporting segments as we continue to drive operational improvements and address higher steel costs through customer recovery mechanisms.”

OUTLOOK

Third quarter and full year 2018

Tenneco expects constant currency total revenue growth of 5% in the third quarter 2018, outpacing forecasted light vehicle industry production growth of 3%*. Tenneco estimates currency to have an impact on revenue of -2%, based on currency exchange rates as of June 30, 2018. The company expects organic growth to outpace industry production with growth in light vehicle, commercial truck and off-highway revenue, and a steady contribution from the global aftermarket segment. The company expects third quarter value-add adjusted EBIT margin to be lower than prior year by about 40 to 50 basis points.

For the full year, the company reaffirmed its 2018 full year revenue outlook, and expects 5% constant currency revenue growth, outpacing industry production* by 3 percentage points. Additionally, the company expects currency to have a positive impact on revenue of 1%, based on currency exchange rates as of June 30, 2018. The company expects full year value-add adjusted EBIT margin in the range of 8.5% to 8.7%.

Acquisition of Federal-Mogul LLC

Tenneco signed a definitive agreement on April 10, 2018, to acquire Federal-Mogul, a leading global supplier to original equipment manufacturers and the aftermarket. Tenneco intends to separate the combined businesses into two independent, publicly traded companies through a tax-free spin-off to shareholders that will establish an aftermarket and ride performance company and a powertrain technology company.

The Federal-Mogul acquisition is expected to close early in the fourth quarter of 2018, subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals and other customary closing conditions, with the separation expected to occur in the second half of 2019. The transaction is expected to be value accretive with run-rate earnings synergies of at least $200 million and one-time working capital synergies of at least $250 million within 24 months of closing.

On July 23, Tenneco announced that its board of directors has selected Brian J. Kesseler and Roger J. Wood as the chief executive officers of the two new companies. Kesseler will become chairman and CEO of the aftermarket and ride performance company, which will be headquartered in Lake Forest, Illinois, and Wood will become chairman and CEO of the new powertrain technology company, which will be headquartered in the Detroit, Michigan area. Immediately upon closing of the Federal-Mogul acquisition, and prior to separation, Kesseler and Wood will serve as co-CEOs of Tenneco Inc., leading their respective businesses, while preparing each to become a stand-alone entity and helping facilitate a smooth spin-off. During this period, both CEOs will report to the Tenneco Board of Directors.

In connection with the Federal-Mogul acquisition, the Tenneco Board of Directors has scheduled a special meeting of stockholders for Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. CT. The meeting will be held at the corporate headquarters, 500 North Field Drive, Lake Forest, Illinois. The record date for stockholders eligible to vote at the meeting is July 31, 2018.

About Tenneco

Tenneco is a $9.3 billion global manufacturing company with headquarters in Lake Forest, Illinois and approximately 32,000 employees worldwide. Tenneco is one of the world’s largest designers, manufacturers and marketers of ride performance and clean air products and systems for automotive and commercial vehicle original equipment markets and the aftermarket. Tenneco’s principal brand names are Monroe®, Walker®, XNOx™ and Clevite®Elastomers.

About the Aftermarket and Ride Performance Company

The aftermarket and ride performance company would have 2017 pro-forma revenues of $6.4 billion, with 57% of those revenues from aftermarket and 43% from original equipment customers. Following the Federal-Mogul acquisition, the aftermarket and ride performance company will be one of the largest global multi-line, multi-brand aftermarket companies, and one of the largest global OE ride performance and braking companies. The aftermarket and ride performance company’s principal product brands will include Monroe®, Walker®, Clevite®Elastomers, MOOG®, Fel-Pro®, Wagner®, and Champion®.

About the Powertrain Technology Company

The powertrain technology company would have 2017 pro-forma revenues of $10.7 billion, serving light vehicle, commercial truck, off-highway and industrial markets. Following the Federal-Mogul acquisition, the powertrain technology company will be one of the world’s largest pure-play powertrain companies serving OE markets worldwide with engineered solutions addressing fuel economy, power output, and criteria pollution requirements for gasoline, diesel and electrified powertrains.

Revenue estimates in this release are based on OE manufacturers’ programs that have been formally awarded to the company; programs where Tenneco is highly confident that it will be awarded business based on informal customer indications consistent with past practices; and Tenneco’s status as supplier for the existing program and its relationship with the customer. These revenue estimates are also based on anticipated vehicle production levels and pricing, including precious metals pricing and the impact of material cost changes. Unless otherwise indicated, our revenue estimate methodology does not attempt to forecast currency fluctuations, and accordingly, reflects constant currency. Certain elements of the restructuring and related expenses, legal settlements and other unusual charges we incur from time to time cannot be forecasted accurately. In this respect, we are not able to forecast EBIT (and the related margins) on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable efforts on account of these factors and the difficulty in predicting GAAP revenues (for purposes of a margin calculation) due to variability in production rates and volatility of precious metal pricing in the substrates that we pass through to our customers. For certain additional assumptions upon which these estimates are based, see the slides accompanying the July 27, 2018 webcast, which will be available on the financial section of the Tenneco website at www.investors.tenneco.com.

Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to materially differ from those described in the forward-looking statements, including the risk that the acquisition transaction may not be completed in a timely manner or at all due to a failure to satisfy certain closing conditions, including any stockholder or regulatory approval or the failure to satisfy other conditions to completion of the transaction; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the purchase agreement; the outcome of any legal proceeding that may be instituted against Tenneco and others following the announcement of the transactions; the combined company may not complete the separation of the Aftermarket & Ride Performance business from the Powertrain Technology business (or achieve some or all of the anticipated benefits of such a separation); the proposed transactions may have an adverse impact on existing arrangements with Tenneco or Federal-Mogul, including those related to transition, manufacturing and supply services and tax matters; the amount of the costs, fees, expenses and charges related to the transactions may be greater than expected; the ability to retain and hire key personnel and maintain relationships with customers, suppliers or other business partners; the risk that the benefits of the transactions, including synergies, may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected; the risk that the transactions may not advance the combined or separated companies’ respective business strategy; the risk that the combined company may experience difficulty integrating or separating all employees or operations; the potential diversion of Tenneco management’s attention resulting from the proposed transactions; as well as the risk factors and cautionary statements included in Tenneco’s periodic and current reports (Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K) filed from time to time with the SEC.

In addition, the forward-looking statements contained herein pertaining to the company’s performance are based on the current expectations of the company (including its subsidiaries). Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, the company's plans, actions and actual results could differ materially. Among the factors that could cause these plans, actions and results to differ materially from current expectations are:

(ii) the company’s ability to source and procure needed materials, components and other products and services in accordance with customer demand and at competitive prices;

(iii) the cost and outcome of existing and any future claims, legal proceedings, or investigations, including, but not limited to, any of the foregoing arising in connection with the ongoing global antitrust investigation, product performance, product safety or intellectual property rights;

(iv) changes in capital availability or costs, including increases in the company's costs of borrowing (i.e., interest rate increases), the amount of the company's debt, the ability of the company to access capital markets at favorable rates, and the credit ratings of the company’s debt;

(v) changes in consumer demand, prices and the company’s ability to have our products included on top selling vehicles, including any shifts in consumer preferences to lower margin vehicles, for which we may or may not have supply arrangements;

(vi) changes in automotive and commercial vehicle manufacturers' production rates and their actual and forecasted requirements for the company's products such as the significant production cuts during recent years by automotive manufacturers in response to difficult economic conditions;

(vii) the overall highly competitive nature of the automobile and commercial vehicle parts industries, and any resultant inability to realize the sales represented by the company’s awarded book of business which is based on anticipated pricing and volumes over the life of the applicable program;

(viii) the loss of any of our large original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) customers (on whom we depend for a substantial portion of our revenues), or the loss of market shares by these customers if we are unable to achieve increased sales to other OEMs or any change in customer demand due to delays in the adoption or enforcement of worldwide emissions regulations;

(ix) the company's continued success in cost reduction and cash management programs and its ability to execute restructuring and other cost reduction plans, including our current cost reduction initiatives, and to realize anticipated benefits from these plans;

(x) risk inherent in operating a multi-national company, including economic conditions, such as currency exchange and inflation rates, and political environments in the countries where we operate or sell our products, adverse changes in trade agreements, tariffs, immigration policies, political stability, and tax and other laws, and potential disruption of production and/or supply;

(xi) workforce factors such as strikes or labor interruptions;

(xii) increases in the costs of raw materials, including the company’s ability to successfully reduce the impact of any such cost increases through materials substitutions, cost reduction initiatives, customer recovery and other methods;

(xiii) the negative impact of fuel price volatility on transportation and logistics costs, raw material costs, discretionary purchases of vehicles or aftermarket products, and demand for off-highway equipment;

(xiv) the cyclical nature of the global vehicular industry, including the performance of the global aftermarket sector and longer product lives of automobile parts;

(xv) product warranty costs;

(xvi) the failure or breach of our information technology systems and the consequences that such failure or breach may have to our business;

(xvii) the company's ability to develop and profitably commercialize new products and technologies, and the acceptance of such new products and technologies by the company's customers and the market;

(xviii) changes by the Financial Accounting Standards Board or other accounting regulatory bodies to authoritative generally accepted accounting principles or policies;

(xix) changes in accounting estimates and assumptions, including changes based on additional information;

(xx) the impact of the extensive, increasing and changing laws and regulations to which we are subject, including environmental laws and regulations, which may result in our incurrence of environmental liabilities in excess of the amount reserved;

(xxi) natural disasters, acts of war and/or terrorism and the impact of these occurrences or acts on economic, financial, industrial and social condition, including, without limitation, with respect to supply chains and customer demand in the countries where the company operates; and

(xxii) the timing and occurrence (or non-occurrence) of transactions and events which may be subject to circumstances beyond the control of the company and its subsidiaries.

Given these risks and uncertainties, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. Unless otherwise indicated, the forward-looking statements in this release are made as of the date of this communication, and, except as required by law, Tenneco does not undertake any obligation, and disclaims any obligation, to publicly disclose revisions or updates to any forward-looking statements.

(2) EBITDA including noncontrolling interests represents income before interest expense, income taxes, noncontrolling interests and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA including noncontrolling interests is not a calculation based upon generally accepted accounting principles. The amounts included in the EBITDA including noncontrolling interests calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in the historical statements of income data. In addition, EBITDA including noncontrolling interests should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) attributable to Tenneco Inc. or operating income as an indicator of the company's operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flows as a measure of liquidity. Tenneco has presented EBITDA including noncontrolling interests because it regularly reviews EBITDA including noncontrolling interests as a measure of the company's performance. In addition, Tenneco believes its investors utilize and analyze the company's EBITDA including noncontrolling interests for similar purposes. Tenneco also believes EBITDA including noncontrolling interests assists investors in comparing a company's performance on a consistent basis without regard to depreciation and amortization, which can vary significantly depending upon many factors. However, the EBITDA including noncontrolling interests measure presented may not always be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in the components of the calculation.

(2) Tenneco presents the above reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP earnings measures primarily to reflect the results in a manner that allows a better understanding of the results of operational activities separate from the financial impact of decisions made for the long-term benefit of the company and other items impacting comparability between the periods. Adjustments similar to the ones reflected above have been recorded in earlier periods, and similar types of adjustments can reasonably be expected to be recorded in future periods. Using only the non-GAAP earnings measures to analyze earnings would have material limitations because its calculation is based on the subjective determinations of management regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find material. Management compensates for these limitations by utilizing both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings measures reflected above to understand and analyze the results of the business. The company believes investors find the non-GAAP information helpful in understanding the ongoing performance of operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the company's financial results in any particular period.

(2) Tenneco presents the above reconciliation of revenues in order to reflect value-add revenues separately from the effects of doing business in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. Additionally, substrate sales include precious metals pricing, which may be volatile. Substrate sales occur when, at the direction of its OE customers, Tenneco purchases catalytic converters or components thereof from suppliers, uses them in its manufacturing processes and sells them as part of the completed system. While Tenneco original equipment customers assume the risk of this volatility, it impacts reported revenue. Excluding substrate sales removes this impact. Tenneco uses this information to analyze the trend in revenues before these factors. Tenneco believes investors find this information useful in understanding period to period comparisons in the company's revenues.

* Financial results for 2016 and first quarter 2017 have been revised for certain immaterial adjustments as discussed in Tenneco’s Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2016 and Form 10-Q/A for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.
 
(1) Tenneco presents debt net of total cash balances because management believes it is a useful measure of Tenneco's credit position and progress toward reducing leverage. The calculation is limited in that the company may not always be able to use cash to repay debt on a dollar-for-dollar basis.
 
(2) EBITDA including noncontrolling interests represents income before interest expense, income taxes, noncontrolling interests and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA including noncontrolling interests is not a calculation based upon generally accepted accounting principles. The amounts included in the EBITDA including noncontrolling interests calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in the historical statements of income data. In addition, EBITDA including noncontrolling interests should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) attributable to Tenneco Inc. or operating income as an indicator of the company's operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flows as a measure of liquidity. Tenneco has presented EBITDA including noncontrolling interests because it regularly reviews EBITDA including noncontrolling interests as a measure of the company's performance. In addition, Tenneco believes its investors utilize and analyze the company's EBITDA including noncontrolling interests for similar purposes. Tenneco also believes EBITDA including noncontrolling interests assists investors in comparing a company's performance on a consistent basis without regard to depreciation and amortization, which can vary significantly depending upon many factors. However, the EBITDA including noncontrolling interests measure presented may not always be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in the components of the calculation.
 
(3) Adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests is presented in order to reflect the results in a manner that allows a better understanding of operational activities separate from the financial impact of decisions made for the long term benefit of the company and other items impacting comparability between the periods. Similar adjustments to EBITDA including noncontrolling interests have been recorded in earlier periods, and similar types of adjustments can reasonably be expected to be recorded in future periods. The company believes investors find the non-GAAP information helpful in understanding the ongoing performance of operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the company's financial results in any particular period.
 
(4) Tenneco presents the above reconciliation of the ratio of debt net of total cash to LTM adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests to show trends that investors may find useful in understanding the company's ability to service its debt. For purposes of this calculation, LTM adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests is used as an indicator of the company's performance and debt net of total cash is presented as an indicator of the company's credit position and progress toward reducing the company's financial leverage. This reconciliation is provided as supplemental information and not intended to replace the company's existing covenant ratios or any other financial measures that investors may find useful in describing the company's financial position. See notes (1), (2) and (3) for a description of the limitations of using debt net of total cash, EBITDA including noncontrolling interests and adjusted EBITDA including noncontrolling interests.
 
(5) Goodwill impairment charges recorded in Europe and South America Ride Performance Division.
 
(6) Charges related to Pension derisking and the acceleration of restricted stock vesting in accordance with the long-term incentive plan.
 
(7) Charges related to establish a reserve for settlement costs necessary to resolve the company’s antitrust matters globally.
 
(8) Warranty settlement with customer.
 
(9) Charge related to warranty. Although Tenneco regularly incurs warranty costs, this specific charge is of an unusual nature in the period incurred.
 
(10) Advisory costs related to Federal-Mogul acquisition.
 
(11) Structural cost reductions in advance of closing Federal-Mogul acquisition.
 
(12) Environmental charge related to an acquired site whereby an indemnification reverted back to the Company resulting from a 2009 bankruptcy filing of Mark IV Industries.
