Commercial Vehicle Group Announces First Quarter 2020 Results
May 18, 2020 at 16:16 PM EDT
NEW ALBANY, Ohio, May 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: CVGI) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, including revenues of $187.1 million, net loss of $24.6 million, EPS of $(0.80), pre-tax special charges of 33.7 million, and adjusted EPS of $0.02.
"Absent special charges during the first quarter, we successfully adjusted our cost structure to achieve an 18% pull through rate year over year and made more significant improvements as compared to the fourth quarter. In addition, we achieved $114 million of liquidity, reflecting our focus on disciplined cash management. In the face of an already substantially lower production environment, which was exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic in late-March, we took swift actions to align our business to our new operational realities. Further, we are continuing to make adjustments to right-size the business and maintain liquidity based on current demand trends. We have been purposeful in our approach to cost optimization to preserve our capabilities, ensure we are ready to restart production efficiently, and preserve core growth initiatives," commented Harold Bevis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Commercial Vehicle Group. "Importantly, last week we announced that we had reached a new agreement to amend our Term Loan with our lenders and asset-based Revolving Credit Facility with the banks, which provides covenant relief and increased flexibility to right-size certain parts of the Company."
"First Source Electronics (FSE) continues to be a bright spot during this difficult business environment. With e-commerce applications growing in importance, we are well positioned to respond to the robust demand, and we are proud to play a small part in helping the global economy continue to run. As a result of the increased demand, we expanded production for FSE from one facility to three, utilizing two additional CVG facilities," Mr. Bevis concluded.
First Quarter 2020 Results
At March 31, 2020, the Company had $15.0 million outstanding under its revolving credit facility and liquidity of $114.2 million; $58.1 million of cash and $56.1 million of availability from the revolving credit facility.

Second Quarter Outlook
According to ACT Research, second quarter 2020 North American heavy-duty and medium-duty truck build is expected to decline 65% to 75% as compared to the first quarter of 2020, as the North American Truck OEMs respond to COVID-19 and overall market conditions. Although the Company's other end markets are not expected to decline as dramatically, we expect revenues for the three months ending June 30, 2020 to be significantly lower than the three months ending March 31, 2020.
As a result of the rapid changes in our end market conditions, our OEM customer ordering patterns and general uncertainties around the impacts of COVID-19 on businesses such as government-mandated shut downs, the Company will not be providing 2020 guidance related to North American Class 5-8 truck and global construction production.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
This earnings release contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In general, the non-GAAP measures exclude items that (i) management believes reflect the Company's multi-year corporate activities; or (ii) relate to activities or actions that may have occurred over multiple or in prior periods without predictable trends. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate the Company's performance, engage in financial and operational planning and to determine incentive compensation.
Management provides these non-GAAP financial measures to investors as supplemental metrics to assist readers in assessing the effects of items and events on the Company's financial and operating results and in comparing the Company's performance to that of its competitors and to comparable reporting periods. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements set forth above should be carefully evaluated.
