The year-over-year increase in third quarter sales was primarily attributable to favorable volume and mix, sustainable price adjustments, inflation recoveries, and favorable foreign exchange, partially offset by the deconsolidation or divestiture of non-core businesses.

Net income for the third quarter 2023 was $11.4 million, including restructuring charges of $2.0 million and other special items. Net loss for the third quarter 2022 was $32.7 million, including restructuring charges of $1.7 million and other special items. Excluding restructuring and other special items, adjusted net income was $15.0 million in the third quarter 2023 compared to adjusted net loss of $29.5 million in the third quarter of 2022. The year-over-year improvement was primarily due to improved volume and mix, favorable price adjustments, and savings generated from lean manufacturing and purchasing initiatives, partially offset by higher interest expense, continuing inflationary pressure, including higher labor and energy costs, and unfavorable foreign exchange.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2023 was $79.1 million compared to $20.5 million in the third quarter of 2022. The year-over-year improvement was primarily due to improved volume and mix, favorable price adjustments, and savings generated from lean manufacturing and purchasing initiatives. These items were partially offset by continuing inflationary pressures, including higher labor and energy costs, and unfavorable foreign exchange.

Adjusted net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA and adjusted income (loss) per diluted share are non-GAAP measures. Reconciliations to the most directly comparable financial measures, calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), are provided in the attached supplemental schedules.

Automotive New Business Awards

The Company continues to leverage its world-class engineering and manufacturing capabilities, its innovation programs and its reputation for quality and service to win new business awards with its customers and capitalize on positive trends associated with electric vehicles. During the third quarter of 2023, the Company received new business awards representing $34.4 million in incremental anticipated future annualized sales on new electric vehicle platforms.  Total net new business awards were not material in the third quarter due primarily to the run-out or cancellation of certain existing or planned traditional powertrain vehicle programs.  For the first nine months of 2023, new business awards on electric vehicle platforms totaled $89.2 million and total net new business awards were $89.0 million.

Cash and Liquidity

As of September 30, 2023, Cooper Standard had cash and cash equivalents totaling $204.8 million. The cash balance included $120.0 million in borrowings under the Company’s amended senior asset-based revolving credit facility.  The Company opted to access the credit facility as a precautionary measure in view of market uncertainty related to then anticipated OEM labor negotiations and the potential for interruption of light vehicle production.  Total liquidity, including remaining availability on the revolving credit facility, was $259.3 million at quarter end.  With tentative labor agreements having recently been reached between the OEMs and the UAW, significantly reducing the risk of further work stoppage, the Company has notified its ABL agent that it intends to repay the $120.0 million in borrowings on November 3, 2023.

Based on current expectations for light vehicle production and customer demand for our products, the Company believes it has sufficient financial resources to support ongoing operations and the execution of planned strategic initiatives for the foreseeable future. These financial resources include current cash on hand, continuing access to flexible credit facilities, and expected future positive cash generation.

Outlook

Industry projections for global light vehicle production anticipate continued year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2023, despite strike related reductions in North America. The Company expects to continue leveraging incremental production volumes to drive further growth and operating efficiencies. In addition, the Company expects to successfully conclude certain remaining commercial negotiations in the fourth quarter to drive additional inflation recovery and positive, sustainable price adjustments. As a result, Company management has updated full year guidance ranges as follows:

1 Guidance is representative of management’s estimates and expectations as of the date it is published. Current guidance as presented in this press release considers October 2023 S&P Global (IHS Markit) production forecasts for relevant light vehicle platforms and models, customers’ planned production schedules and other internal assumptions.

2 Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company has not provided a reconciliation of projected adjusted EBITDA to projected net income (loss) because full-year net income (loss) will include special items that have not yet occurred and are difficult to predict with reasonable certainty prior to year-end. Due to this uncertainty, the Company cannot reconcile projected adjusted EBITDA to U.S. GAAP net income (loss) without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share and free cash flow are measures not recognized under U.S. GAAP and which exclude certain non-cash and special items that may obscure trends and operating performance not indicative of the Company’s core financial activities. Net new business is a measure not recognized under U.S. GAAP which is a representation of potential incremental future revenue but which may not fully reflect all external impacts to future revenue. Management considers EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, free cash flow and net new business to be key indicators of the Company’s operating performance and believes that these and similar measures are widely used by investors, securities analysts and other interested parties in evaluating the Company’s performance. In addition, similar measures are utilized in the calculation of the financial covenants and ratios contained in the Company’s financing arrangements and management uses these measures for developing internal budgets and forecasting purposes. EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to reflect income tax expense (benefit), interest expense net of interest income, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted to reflect certain items that management does not consider to be reflective of the Company’s core operating performance. Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to reflect certain items that management does not consider to be reflective of the Company’s core operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales. Adjusted basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share is defined as adjusted net income (loss) divided by the weighted average number of basic and diluted shares, respectively, outstanding during the period. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures and is useful to both management and investors in evaluating the Company’s ability to service and repay its debt. Net new business reflects anticipated sales from formally awarded programs, less lost business, discontinued programs and replacement programs and is based on S&P Global (IHS Markit) forecast production volumes. The calculation of “net new business” does not reflect customer price reductions on existing programs and may be impacted by various assumptions embedded in the respective calculation, including actual vehicle production levels on new programs, foreign exchange rates and the timing of major program launches.

When analyzing the Company’s operating performance, investors should use EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, free cash flow and net new business as supplements to, and not as alternatives for, net income (loss), operating income, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and not as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of the Company’s liquidity. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, free cash flow and net new business have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of the Company’s results of operations as reported under U.S. GAAP. Other companies may report EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, free cash flow and net new business differently and therefore the Company’s results may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. In addition, in evaluating adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss), it should be noted that in the future the Company may incur expenses similar to or in excess of the adjustments in the below presentation. This presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss) should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by special items. Reconciliations of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income (loss) and free cash flow follow.
