DUBLIN, May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Aptiv PLC (NYSE: APTV), a global technology company focused on making mobility safer, greener and more connected, today reported first quarter 2021 U.S. GAAP earnings of $1.03 per diluted share. Excluding special items, first quarter earnings totaled $1.06 per diluted share.

(PRNewsfoto/Aptiv PLC)
(PRNewsfoto/Aptiv PLC)

First Quarter Financial Highlights Include:

-- U.S. GAAP revenue of $4.0 billion, an increase of 25%

  • Revenue increased 20% adjusted for currency exchange, commodity movements and divestitures

-- U.S. GAAP net income of $279 million, diluted earnings per share of $1.03

  • Excluding special items, diluted earnings per share of $1.06

-- U.S. GAAP operating income margin of 10.7%

  • Adjusted Operating Income margin of 10.9%, Adjusted Operating Income of $437 million; Adjusted EBITDA of $630 million

-- Generated $252 million of cash from operations

"We had a strong start to the year, delivering better than expected revenues, earnings and cash flow, underscoring our ability to outperform despite tightening supply chains globally," said Kevin Clark, president and chief executive officer. "Our relentless focus on execution is helping to support ramping customer schedules as the post-pandemic recovery takes hold. As a result, we continue to be our customers' partner of choice, as evidenced by our robust new business awards in the first quarter as customers leverage our unique portfolio of advanced technologies and global capabilities to accelerate their transition to the electrified, software-defined vehicles of the future."

First Quarter 2021 Results

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company reported U.S. GAAP revenue of $4.0 billion, an increase of 25% from the prior year period. Adjusted for currency exchange, commodity movements and divestitures, revenue increased by 20% in the first quarter. This reflects growth of 64% in Asia, which includes growth of 94% in China, 11% in Europe, 5% in North America and 28% in South America, our smallest region.

The Company reported first quarter 2021 U.S. GAAP net income of $279 million and earnings of $1.03 per diluted share, compared to $1,572 million and $6.14 per diluted share in the prior year period, which includes a non-cash gain of $5.63 per diluted share resulting from the completion of the Motional autonomous driving joint venture with Hyundai. First quarter Adjusted Net Income, a non-GAAP financial measure defined below, totaled $301 million, or earnings of $1.06 per diluted share, compared to $173 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

First quarter Adjusted Operating Income, a non-GAAP financial measure defined below, was $437 million, compared to $231 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Operating Income margin was 10.9%, compared to 7.2% in the prior year period, reflecting higher global vehicle production levels in the quarter, lapping the impacts of the pandemic-related shutdowns in the prior year period, partially offset by costs incurred in connection with the global supply chain disruptions currently impacting the industry. Depreciation and amortization expense totaled $193 million, an increase from $180 million in the prior year period.

Interest expense for the first quarter totaled $40 million, as compared to $43 million in the prior year period.

Tax expense in the first quarter of 2021 was $48 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 12%. Tax expense in the first quarter of 2020 was $10 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 1%, which includes favorable rate impacts of approximately 11 points resulting from the gain on the Motional autonomous driving joint venture, which was taxed using the appropriate tax rate for the jurisdiction where the benefit was incurred.

The Company generated net cash flow from operating activities of $252 million in the first quarter, compared to $161 million in the prior year period. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $2.8 billion and total available liquidity of $5.4 billion.

Reconciliations of Adjusted Revenue Growth, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Cash Flow Before Financing, which are non-GAAP measures, to the most directly comparable financial measures, respectively, calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") are provided in the attached supplemental schedules.

Accelerating An Electric, Zero-Emissions Future

As a purpose-led company with a strong sustainability track record, Aptiv announced today it has committed to becoming carbon neutral in its global operations by 2030. This represents a continuation of the Company's carbon-reduction initiatives since 2004, which have already driven a more than 40% reduction in the greenhouse gas intensity of its operations. Further, the Company expects to provide carbon neutral products and achieve net neutrality by 2040. To achieve these commitments, Aptiv is targeting to:

  • Reduce CO2e emissions by an additional 25% by 2025

  • Maintain annual certification of 124 manufacturing sites to the ISO14001 standard

  • Certify ten of the most energy-intensive sites to the ISO50001 certification by 2025

  • Source 100% of electricity for operations from renewable sources by 2030

  • Deliver only carbon-neutral products by 2039, from sourcing to disposal

Clark added, "Sustainability at Aptiv starts with our product portfolio and extends to how we operate. Over the past decade, Aptiv has taken bold moves to realize our mission of enabling a safer, greener and more connected future. Our long-term success as a business and ability to create value for stakeholders is strongly linked to the positive impact our products have on people and the planet."

Aptiv has committed to the Science Based Targets initiative ("SBTi") to help prevent the effects of climate change and create a zero-carbon economy. Since 2011, Aptiv has also reduced water consumption by 38% and waste disposal by 32%, exceeding prior environmental targets.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains information about Aptiv's financial results which are not presented in accordance with GAAP. Specifically, Adjusted Revenue Growth, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share and Cash Flow Before Financing are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted Revenue Growth represents the year-over-year change in reported net sales relative to the comparable period, excluding the impact on net sales from currency exchange, commodity movements and divestitures. Adjusted Operating Income represents net income before interest expense, other income (expense), net, income tax (expense) benefit, equity income (loss), net of tax, restructuring, other acquisition and portfolio project costs, asset impairments, gains (losses) on business divestitures and other transactions and deferred compensation related to acquisitions. Other acquisition and portfolio project costs include costs incurred to integrate acquired businesses and to plan and execute product portfolio transformation actions, including business and product acquisitions and divestitures. Adjusted Operating Income margin is defined as Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before depreciation and amortization (including asset impairments), interest expense, other income (expense), net, income tax (expense) benefit, equity income (loss), net of tax, restructuring and other special items.

Adjusted Net Income represents net income attributable to Aptiv before restructuring and other special items, including the tax impact thereon. Adjusted Net Income Per Share represents Adjusted Net Income divided by the Adjusted Weighted Average Number of Diluted Shares Outstanding for the period. The Adjusted Weighted Average Number of Diluted Shares Outstanding assumes the application of the if-converted method of share dilution, if not already applied for U.S. GAAP purposes of calculating the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding. Cash Flow Before Financing represents cash provided by operating activities plus cash provided by (used in) investing activities, adjusted for the purchase price of business acquisitions and net proceeds from the divestiture of other significant businesses.

Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are useful to both management and investors in their analysis of the Company's financial position, results of operations and liquidity. In particular, management believes Adjusted Revenue Growth, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share and Cash Flow Before Financing are useful measures in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure, provide improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and that may obscure underlying business results and trends. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the attached supplemental schedules at the end of this press release. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(Unaudited)

In this press release the Company has provided information regarding certain non-GAAP financial measures, including "Adjusted Revenue Growth," "Adjusted Operating Income," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted Net Income," "Adjusted Net Income Per Share" and "Cash Flow Before Financing." Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to their closest GAAP financial measure in the following schedules.

Adjusted Revenue Growth: Adjusted Revenue Growth is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's financial performance which management believes is useful to investors in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measure, provides improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and which may obscure underlying business results and trends. Our management utilizes Adjusted Revenue Growth in its financial decision making process, to evaluate performance of the Company and for internal reporting, planning and forecasting purposes. Adjusted Revenue Growth is defined as the year-over-year change in reported net sales relative to the comparable period, excluding the impact on net sales from currency exchange, commodity movements and divestitures and other transactions. Not all companies use identical calculations of Adjusted Revenue Growth, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Our management utilizes Adjusted Operating Income in its financial decision making process, to evaluate performance of the Company and for internal reporting, planning and forecasting purposes. Management also utilizes Adjusted Operating Income as the key performance measure of segment income or loss and for planning and forecasting purposes to allocate resources to our segments, as management also believes this measure is most reflective of the operational profitability or loss of our operating segments. Adjusted Operating Income is defined as net income before interest expense, other income (expense), net, income tax (expense) benefit, equity income (loss), net of tax, restructuring and other special items. Not all companies use identical calculations of Adjusted Operating Income, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Operating margin represents Operating income as a percentage of net sales, and Adjusted Operating Income margin represents Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of net sales.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share: Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share, which are non-GAAP measures, are presented as supplemental measures of the Company's financial performance which management believes are useful to investors in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measure, provide improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and which may obscure underlying business results and trends. Management utilizes Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share in its financial decision making process, to evaluate performance of the Company and for internal reporting, planning and forecasting purposes. Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income attributable to Aptiv before restructuring and other special items, including the tax impact thereon. Adjusted Net Income Per Share is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by the Adjusted Weighted Average Number of Diluted Shares Outstanding, as reconciled below, for the period. Not all companies use identical calculations of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

In June 2020, the Company issued $1,150 million in aggregate liquidation preference of 5.50% MCPS and received proceeds of $1,115 million, after deducting expenses and the underwriters' discount of $35 million. Dividends on the MCPS are payable on a cumulative basis at an annual rate of 5.50% on the liquidation preference of $100 per share. Unless earlier converted, each share of MCPS will automatically convert on June 15, 2023 into between 1.0754 and 1.3173 shares of Aptiv's ordinary shares, subject to further anti-dilution adjustments. For purposes of calculating Adjusted Net Income Per Share, the Company has excluded the anticipated MCPS cash dividends and assumed the "if-converted" method of share dilution (the incremental ordinary shares deemed outstanding applying the "if-converted" method of calculating share dilution are referred to as the "Weighted average MCPS Converted Shares" in the following table). The Adjusted Weighted Average Number of Diluted Shares Outstanding calculated below, assumes the conversion of all 11.5 million MCPS and issuance of the underlying ordinary shares applying the "if-converted" method on a weighted average outstanding basis for all periods subsequent to issuance of the MCPS. We believe that using the "if-converted" method provides additional insight to investors on the potential impact of the MCPS once they are converted into ordinary shares no later than June 15, 2023.

Cash Flow Before Financing: Cash Flow Before Financing is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's liquidity which is consistent with the basis and manner in which management presents financial information for the purpose of making internal operating decisions, evaluating its liquidity and determining appropriate capital allocation strategies. Management believes this measure is useful to investors to understand how the Company's core operating activities generate and use cash. Cash Flow Before Financing is defined as cash provided by operating activities plus cash provided by (used in) investing activities, adjusted for the purchase price of business acquisitions and net proceeds from the divestiture of discontinued operations and other significant businesses. Not all companies use identical calculations of Cash Flow Before Financing, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The calculation of Cash Flow Before Financing does not reflect cash used to service debt, pay dividends or repurchase shares and, therefore, does not necessarily reflect funds available for investment or other discretionary uses.
