Q4 2019

  • Revenue of $1.1 billion decreased 10% percent from the year-ago quarter. Adjusting for currency exchange, revenue decreased 8%. The decline was primarily due to lower global production, particularly in North America and Europe , the downward trend in passenger car diesel fuel injection systems in Europe , and the closure of certain customer production sites in North America . This was partially offset by an increase in sales of passenger car gasoline fuel injection systems in China .
  • On a regional basis, quarterly adjusted revenue reflects decreases of 13% in Europe , 18% in North America , and 17% in South America , partially offset by an increase of 14% in Asia Pacific .
  • Operating loss was $15 million , compared to operating income of $93 million in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted operating income was $75 million , compared to $125 million in the prior year period. The year-on-year decline in adjusted operating income was primarily due to unfavorable product mix, most notably between higher margin passenger car diesel fuel injection systems, and lower margin advanced gasoline direct injection fuel systems. In addition, the decline was also impacted by lower volumes, partially offset by the benefits of announced restructuring initiatives.
  • Earnings per diluted share of $(0.46) represents a 130% decline from the year-ago quarter. Excluding special items, earnings per diluted share was $0.62 , compared to $1.06 in the year-ago quarter.
  • Cash flow from operating activities was $142 million , compared to $126 million in the prior year period. The year-on-year increase is primarily due to an improvement in working capital, offset by the decrease in net income, excluding the impact of non-cash items.

Full year 2019

  • Revenue of $4.4 billion decreased 10% percent from the prior year period. Adjusting for currency exchange, revenue decreased 7%. The decline was primarily due to lower global production, particularly in China , the downward trend in passenger car diesel fuel injection systems in Europe , and the closure of certain customer production sites in North America .
  • On a regional basis, year-on-year adjusted revenue reflects decreases of 10% in North America , 9% in Asia Pacific , 4% in Europe and 4% in South America .
  • Operating income was $141 million , compared to $434 million in the prior year period. Adjusted operating income was $314 million , compared to $548 million in the prior year period. The year-on-year decline in adjusted operating income was primarily due to unfavorable product mix, most notably between higher margin passenger car diesel fuel injection systems, and lower margin advanced gasoline direct injection fuel systems, as well as lower revenues. In addition, the decline was also impacted by lower volumes, partially offset by the benefits of announced restructuring initiatives.
  • Earnings per diluted share of $0.19 represents a 95% decline from the prior year period. Excluding special items, earnings per diluted share was $2.43 , compared to $4.38 in the prior year period.
  • Cash flow from operating activities was $292 million , compared to $419 million in the prior year period. The year-on-year decrease is primarily due to the decrease in net income, excluding the impact of non-cash items, partially offset by an improvement in working capital.

CEO comments

"We ended 2019 with improved momentum, exceeding our revenue, adjusted EPS and cash flow targets for the fourth quarter. While our performance throughout the year was impacted by ongoing industry and macro headwinds, we have made strong progress in a number of operational areas. During Q4, we began implementing our cost transformation plan, which will realign and reshape Delphi Technologies for future profitable growth. I am pleased with our early progress, and are ahead of schedule in delivering bottom line savings," said Richard F. Dauch , Chief Executive Officer of Delphi Technologies.

"At the end of January, we were pleased to announce that BorgWarner will acquire Delphi Technologies in an all-stock transaction. Together, we plan to create a pioneering propulsion technologies company uniquely equipped to serve OEMs and aftermarket customers around the world. This compelling transaction, which is expected to be completed in the second half of the year, was unanimously approved by our board of directors and delivers clear benefits to our stakeholders. For our shareholders, they receive immediate value and the ability to benefit from the future upside potential given the enhanced prospects of the combined company."

Use of non-GAAP financial information

This press release contains information about Delphi Technologies' financial results which are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Specifically, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per Share and the Adjusted Effective Tax Rate are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted Operating Income represents net income before interest expense, other (expense) income, net, income tax expense, equity income, net of tax, restructuring, separation costs, transformation costs, asset impairments and pension charges. Adjusted Operating Income margin is defined as Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of net sales.

Adjusted Net Income represents net income attributable to Delphi Technologies before restructuring and other special items, including the tax impact thereon. Adjusted Net Income per Share represents Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. Adjusted Effective Tax Rate represents income tax expense less the income tax related to the adjustments noted above for Adjusted Net Income, divided by income before income taxes less adjustments.

In addition, this press release contains information about the Company's adjusted revenue, which is presented on a constant currency basis. The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates that occurred between the comparative periods. Constant currency net sales results are calculated by translating current period net sales in local currency to the U.S. dollar amount by using the currency conversion rate for the prior comparative period.  The Company consistently applies this approach to net sales for all countries where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar. The Company believes that this presentation provides useful supplemental information regarding changes in our revenue that were not due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates and such information is consistent with how the Company assesses changes in its revenue between comparative periods.

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 Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share are useful measures 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 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 U.S. 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 the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

FOOTNOTES

1. Segment Summary

Delphi Technologies previously reported financial results based on its two operating segments, Powertrain Systems and Aftermarket. As a result of the change in information the Company's chief operating decision maker (its Chief Executive Officer) regularly reviews to allocate resources and assess performance, the Company is reporting its financial performance based on four operating segments.

In addition, the Company no longer allocates to its operating segments certain corporate costs and services that are not directly attributable to the Company's products, technologies or operating segments. This includes headquarter-related and other functional expenses such as executive management, corporate finance, legal and human resources.

Therefore, the prior period information provided below has been recast to reflect these changes. The changes had no impact on the consolidated financial statements.
