    Martinrea International Inc. Reports Full-Year Results and Record Fourth-Quarter Earnings, and Declares Dividend

    TORONTO, March 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Martinrea International Inc. (TSX : MRE), a diversified and global automotive supplier engaged in the design, development and manufacturing of highly engineered, value-added Lightweight Structures and Propulsion Systems, today announced the release of its financial results for the year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020 and that it has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share. HIGHLIGHTS Fourth Quarter 2020 Total sales of $1,071.0 million; production sales of $982.3 millionFourth quarter diluted net earnings per share of $0.56Record fourth quarter adjusted diluted net earnings per share(1) of $0.55 Balance sheet continues to be strong; net debt(1):adjusted EBITDA(1) ratio (excluding impact of IFRS 16) of 2.11x and 1.6x for bank covenant purposes, excluding second quarter adjusted EBITDA(1) New business awards of approximately $115 million in annualized sales at mature volumesQuarterly cash dividend of $0.05 declared Full Year 2020 Total sales of $3,375.3 million; production sales of $3,156.9 millionDiluted net loss per share of $0.34; adjusted diluted net earnings per share(1) of $0.58 Sales rebounded to near pre-COVID-19 levels in the second-half of the year, with record adjusted diluted net earnings per share(1) in both the third and fourth quartersFree cash flow(1) of $62.0 millionNew business awards over the past four quarters of approximately $285 million in annualized sales at mature volumesImproved safety performance OVERVIEW Pat D’Eramo, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “While 2020 was a year full of challenges given the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the hard work and dedication of our team allowed us to meet these challenges head on. As a result of the decisive actions we took to reduce costs, improve operations, and strengthen our balance sheet, our company is better positioned for long-term success today than it was prior to the pandemic. Looking at 2020, after a challenging second quarter where we generated minimal sales and an operating loss, our results rebounded sharply in the back half of the year, which saw us generate record adjusted diluted net earnings per share(1) in both the third and fourth quarters. Our fourth-quarter results were characterized by continued strong volumes and an adjusted operating income margin(1) above year-ago levels – a strong result despite renewed lockdowns and other public health restrictions in November and December as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which impeded some integration and launch activities. In addition to solid financial and operating performance, we continue to improve in our safety metrics; the progress over the past six years has been terrific, as we strive to be an industry leader. We are also pleased to announce new business wins this quarter totalling $115 million in annualized sales at mature volumes, including $75 million in our Lightweight Structures commercial group with various customers, including BMW, Volvo, General Motors, Audi and Toyota; $30 million in our Flexible Manufacturing Group with various customers including Volvo, John Deere and General Motors, and a $10 million brake line program with Tesla in our Propulsion Systems commercial group. Of the $115 million in total new business awarded during the quarter, $45 million relates to pure electric vehicle platforms including General Motors’ new EV Hummer, the Tesla Model Y and the Audi E6. We see great opportunities for Martinrea as the industry progresses towards electrification.” Fred Di Tosto, Chief Financial Officer, stated: “Sales for the fourth quarter, excluding tooling sales of $89 million, were $982 million, within the range of our previously announced sales guidance. In the quarter, our adjusted diluted net earnings per share(1) was $0.55, just above the high end of the range of our quarterly guidance. A record fourth-quarter result, as volumes have recovered more quickly than expected following the rock-bottom levels hit during the second quarter. Our balance sheet remains strong, ending the year at a net debt:adjusted EBITDA(1) ratio of 2.11x, or approximately 1.6x for bank covenant purposes, given the agreement we reached with our banking syndicate to eliminate second-quarter adjusted EBITDA(1) from the covenant calculation. Supporting this was $62 million in free cash flow generated during the year. A very good result and reflective of the strength of the business. Looking forward, our business continues to face some challenges in the form of COVID-19 related restrictions which continue to impact launch and integration activities at certain facilities, higher raw material prices, which are having a temporary negative impact on our aluminum business, and the global semiconductor shortage, which is expected to impact production volumes through at least the first half of this year. Taking these headwinds into account, we expect first-quarter production sales to be in the range of $900 million to $1 billion, and adjusted diluted net earnings per share(1) to be in the range of $0.36 to $0.44. The good news is, industry demand remains strong. Since the second quarter, vehicle sales have been robust and vehicle inventories remain low in North America, particularly on truck, SUV and CUV platforms where we have the majority of our exposure. This bodes well for future sales. As such, subject to overall production volumes, we expect 2021 total sales to approximate 2019 levels and 2021 adjusted diluted net earnings per share(1) to approach 2019 levels, both inclusive of the acquired Martinrea Metalsa Group. Looking beyond 2021, we see continued growth. In 2022, we expect sales and earnings to exceed 2019 levels, with continued sales and earnings growth expected in 2023.” Rob Wildeboer, Executive Chairman, stated: “The past year saw challenges that were not foreseen a year ago, including an unprecedented shutdown of our industry and most of our customers worldwide for months, where our revenues dropped precipitously close to zero, and many were talking about the very survival of our industry. Some might argue there is not much good to say about such a stressful year. And yet, we believe that this may have been our finest hour to date as a company. We are very proud of how our people responded to the crisis, and the fact that we ended the year stronger and more focused than ever on our long-term success and future. We made progress in multiple areas and achieved a number of successes over the last year including much success in internal technology improvements and process innovations. We also introduced some great new products, including a graphene-enhanced brake line now approved for customer use in 2021 that we believe is leading-edge. Our partnership with NanoXplore, the world’s leading producer of graphene, is also an important aspect of our technology strategy, and we deepened our relationship through further investment during the year. We also acquired the Structural Components for Passenger Cars Division of Metalsa S.A. de C.V. (our Martinrea Metalsa Group), allowing us to establish a steel metalforming footprint in Europe, thereby furthering our Project Breakthrough commercial strategy, diversifying our customer base, and establishing capacity in needed areas, among other benefits. We believe the value of these assets is significantly higher than the modest purchase price.” He added: “In allocating capital, we will seek opportunities to invest in our business, be it organically or through acquisitions where they make strategic and financial sense – like we did with the Metalsa acquisition. We will also look to return capital to shareholders through dividend growth over time as well as opportunistic share repurchases – all while maintaining a strong balance sheet. Our future is bright, and we believe our lean, entrepreneurial and Golden Rule culture has been and will be a competitive advantage for this company. We have great people here, and we congratulate and thank them as the foundation of our performance to date and in future.” RESULTS OF OPERATIONS All amounts in this press release are in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise stated; and all tabular amounts are in thousands of Canadian dollars, except earnings per share and number of shares.

However, the Company considers certain non-IFRS financial measures as useful additional information in measuring the financial performance and condition of the Company. These measures, which the Company believes are widely used by investors, securities analysts and other interested parties in evaluating the Company’s performance, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other publicly traded companies, nor should they be construed as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS. Non-IFRS measures include “Adjusted Net Income”, “Adjusted Net Earnings per Share (on a basic and diluted basis)”, “Adjusted Operating Income”, "Adjusted EBITDA”, “Free Cash Flow” and “Net Debt”. The following tables provide a reconciliation of IFRS “Net Income (Loss)” to non-IFRS “Adjusted Net Income”, “Adjusted Operating Income” and “Adjusted EBITDA”.

The total increase in sales was driven by year-over-year increases across all operating segments. Sales for the fourth quarter of 2020 in the Company’s North America operating segment increased by $71.9 million or 10.0% to $792.1 million from $720.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020, contributed $30.7 million of year-over-year sales to the North America operating segment. Excluding the acquired operations, fourth quarter sales in North America increased year-over-year by $41.2 million or 5.7%. This increase was due to higher production volumes with General Motors, in particular on their pick-up truck and large SUV platform (including the launch of the next generation heavy duty truck), which was negatively impacted by the United Auto Workers strike at General Motors during the fourth quarter of 2019; and the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the fourth quarter of 2019, including Ford’s new Mach E Mustang and a six cylinder aluminum engine block for Ford. These positive factors were partially offset by a decrease in tooling sales of $35.0 million, which are typically dependant on the timing of tooling construction and final acceptance by the customer; lower year-over-year OEM production volumes on certain light-vehicle platforms including the Ford Edge/Fusion program; and the impact of foreign exchange on the translation of U.S. denominated production sales, which had a negative impact on overall sales for the fourth quarter of 2020 of approximately $1.2 million as compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Overall fourth quarter OEM light vehicle production in North America was generally flat year-over-year, despite the COVID-19 global pandemic. Sales for the fourth quarter of 2020 in the Company’s Europe operating segment increased by $76.2 million or 48.1% to $234.6 million from $158.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020, contributed $55.8 million of year-over-year sales (including $0.7 million in tooling sales) to the Europe operating segment. Excluding the acquired operations, fourth quarter sales in Europe increased year-over-year by $20.4 million or 12.9%. This increase can be attributed to a $9.5 million positive foreign exchange impact from the translation of Euro denominated production sales as compared to the fourth quarter of 2019; the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the fourth quarter of 2019, namely with Volvo; and higher overall production volumes on specific platforms, namely with Daimler and Jaguar Land Rover. These factors were partially offset by a $3.7 million decrease in tooling sales. Sales for the fourth quarter of 2020 in the Company’s Rest of the World operating segment increased by $7.0 million or 16.9% to $48.1 million from $41.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020, contributed $21.6 million of year-over-year sales to the Rest of the World operating segment. Excluding the acquired operations, fourth quarter sales in Rest of the World decreased year-over-year by $14.6 million or 35.5%. This decrease was largely driven by lower year-over-year production volumes on the Cadillac CT6 vehicle platform in China, a $4.0 million decrease in tooling sales, and a $1.6 million negative foreign exchange impact from the translation of foreign denominated production sales as compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Overall tooling sales, inclusive of the operations acquired from Metalsa, decreased by $42.0 million to $88.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 from $130.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.

The total decrease in sales was driven by a decrease in the North America operating segment, partially offset by increases in sales in Europe and the Rest of the World. Sales for the year ended December 31, 2020 in the Company’s North America operating segment decreased by $529.1 million or 17.3% to $2,537.2 million from $3,066.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. The operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020, contributed $78.5 million of year-over-year sales (including $1.7 million in tooling sales) to the North America operating segment. Excluding the acquired operations, sales for the year ended December 31, 2020 in North America decreased by $607.6 million or 19.8%. This decrease was due to overall lower industry volumes, primarily as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and a decrease in tooling sales of $187.6 million, which are typically dependent on the timing of tooling construction and final acceptance by the customer. These negative factors were partially offset by the impact of foreign exchange on the translation of U.S.-denominated production sales, which had a positive impact on overall sales for the year ended December 31, 2020 of approximately $24.0 million as compared to the corresponding period of 2019, and the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the year ended December 31, 2019, including the General Motors heavy duty truck, Ford’s new Mach E Mustang, a six cylinder aluminum engine block for Ford, and the production of ventilator stands for General Motors. Sales for the year ended December 31, 2020 in the Company’s Europe operating segment increased by $11.7 million or 1.7% to $683.9 million from $672.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. The operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020, contributed $154.5 million of year-over-year sales (including $10.4 million in tooling sales) to the Europe operating segment. Excluding the acquired operations, sales for the year ended December 31, 2020 in Europe decreased year-over-year by $142.8 million or 21.2%. This decrease can be attributed to overall lower industry volumes, primarily as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic; lower pre-COVID year-over-year production related to certain light vehicle platforms, in particular with Daimler and Jaguar Land Rover; and a $6.5 million decrease in tooling sales. These negative factors were partially offset by the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the year ended December 31, 2019, namely with Volvo and Volkswagen; and an $8.8 million positive foreign exchange impact from the translation of Euro-denominated production sales as compared to the corresponding period of 2019. Sales for the year ended December 31, 2020 in the Company’s Rest of the World operating segment increased by $36.1 million or 27.2% to $168.8 million from $132.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. The operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020, contributed $70.4 million of year-over-year sales to the Rest of the World operating segment. Excluding the acquired operations, sales for the year ended December 31, 2020 in the Rest of the World decreased year-over-year by $34.3 million or 25.9%. The decrease was largely driven by COVID-19 related disruption, lower year-over-year production volumes on the Cadillac CT6 vehicle platform in China, a $5.3 million negative foreign exchange impact from the translation of foreign-denominated production sales as compared to the corresponding period of 2019, and a $4.4 million decrease in tooling sales. Overall tooling sales, inclusive of the operations acquired from Metalsa, decreased by $186.4 million to $218.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 from $404.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. GROSS MARGIN Three months ended December 31, 2020 to three months ended December 31, 2019 comparison Three months endedDecember 31, 2020 Three months endedDecember 31, 2019$ Change% Change Gross margin$155,841 $129,921 25,92020.0%% of Sales 14.6% 14.2% The gross margin percentage for the fourth quarter of 2020 of 14.6% increased as a percentage of sales by 0.4% as compared to the gross margin percentage for the fourth quarter of 2019 of 14.2%. The increase in gross margin as a percentage of sales was generally due to a decrease in tooling sales which typically earn low margins for the Company; a positive sales mix on higher year-over-year production sales (excluding the operations acquired from Metalsa) in part driven by the negative impact of the labour strike at General Motors in the fourth quarter of 2019; productivity and efficiency improvements at certain operating facilities; and the receipt of certain COVID-related government wage subsidies related to active employees ($2.1 million in total of which $1.9 million was included in gross margin). These positive factors were partially offset by operational inefficiencies at certain facilities including launch related costs and upfront cost incurred in preparation of upcoming new programs, and the negative impact on overall margin percentage from the operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020. Year ended December 31, 2020 to year ended December 31, 2019 comparison Year endedDecember 31, 2020 Year endedDecember 31, 2019$ Change % Change Gross margin$415,097 $586,101 (171,004)(29.2%)% of Sales 12.3% 15.2% The gross margin percentage for the year ended December 31, 2020 of 12.3% decreased as a percentage of sales by 2.9% as compared to the gross margin percentage for the year ended December 31, 2019 of 15.2%. The decrease in gross margin as a percentage of sales was generally due to overall lower sales volume and corresponding lower utilization of assets, driven primarily by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic; a negative impact on overall margin percentage from the operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020; and operational inefficiencies at certain facilities including launch related costs and upfront costs incurred in preparation of upcoming new programs. These negative factors were partially offset by productivity and efficiency improvements at certain facilities; the receipt of certain COVID-related government wage subsidies related to active employees ($19.5 million in total of which $16.7 million was included in gross margin); and a decrease in tooling sales, which typically earn low margins for the Company. The sharp sales decline in April and May, as a result of the COVID-19 related shutdowns, coupled with a volatile restart and ramp-up of production in May and June with limited predictability, had a significant impact on gross margin during the second quarter of 2020, despite major reduction in costs. ADJUSTMENTS TO NET INCOME (LOSS) Adjusted Net Income (Loss) excludes certain unusual and other items, as set out in the following tables and described in the notes thereto. Management uses Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as a measurement of operating performance of the Company and believes that, in conjunction with IFRS measures, it provides useful information about the financial performance and condition of the Company.

Included in SG&A expense are transaction costs related to the acquisition totaling $nil and $2.5 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2020, respectively. 2)Impairment of assets The significant reduction in volumes and industry production projections as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic negatively impacted the recoverable amount of certain of the Company’s production-related assets and also changed the expected usage of certain other assets. As a result, during the second quarter of 2020, the Company completed an analysis of its asset base and concluded there existed certain indicators of impairment for specific assets and cash-generating units (CGUs). Accordingly, the Company tested these assets and CGUs for recoverability using projected sales and cash flows modelled from industry production projections. Based on the results of this testing, during the second quarter of 2020, the Company recorded impairment charges on property, plant and equipment, right-of-use assets, intangible assets and inventories across its three operating segments totaling $85.8 million, including specific assets that are no longer expected to be redeployed or transferred to other facilities. The charges related to assets and CGUs across various jurisdictions in the Company’s segments, including the United States, Slovakia, China and Brazil. Of the total impairment charge, $72.2 million was recognized in North America, $1.3 million in Europe, and $12.3 million in the Rest of the World. For the specific assets that are no longer expected to be redeployed or transferred, the impairment charges are based on the estimated salvage value of the assets. For the CGUs, the impairment charges were recorded where the carrying amount of the CGUs exceeded their estimated recoverable amounts. During the second quarter of 2019, the Company recorded impairment charges on property, plant, equipment, right-of-use assets, intangible assets and inventories totaling $18.5 million related to an operating facility in China included in the Rest of the World operating segment. The impairment charges resulted from lower OEM production volumes on certain light vehicle platforms being serviced by the facility, representing a significant portion of the business, causing the Company to complete an analysis of strategic alternatives. The impairment charges were recorded where the carrying amount of the assets exceeded their estimated recoverable amounts, including consideration for where specific assets can be transferred to other facilities. 3)Restructuring costs Additions to the restructuring provision, recognized during the second quarter of 2020, totaled $8.2 million and represent employee-related severance resulting from a reduction in the Company’s workforce globally in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Of the total addition to the restructuring provision, $6.6 million relates to North America, $1.0 million to Europe and $0.6 million to the Rest of the World. Additions to the restructuring provision, recognized during the second quarter of 2019, totaled $8.2 million and represent employee-related severance resulting from the right-sizing of operating facilities in the North America ($1.7 million) and the Rest of the World ($6.5 million). 4)Gain on dilution of investment in associate As at December 31, 2020, the Company held 34,045,954 common shares of NanoXplore Inc. (“NanoXplore”) representing a 23.3% equity interest in NanoXplore (on a non-diluted basis), a decrease from 24.3% after NanoXplore converted an aggregate principal amount of $10.0 million convertible unsecured subordinated debentures into common shares during the fourth quarter of 2020. This dilution resulted in a deemed disposition of the Company’s ownership interest in NanoXplore, resulting in a gain on dilution of $0.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020. 5)Loss on derivative instruments Martinrea held warrants in NanoXplore. The warrants represented derivative instruments and were fair valued at the end of each reporting period using the Black-Scholes-Merton valuation model, with the change in fair value recorded through profit or loss. Based on the fair value of the outstanding warrants as at December 31, 2019, unrealized losses of $0.0 million and $0.3 million were recognized for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019, respectively. All outstanding remaining warrants in NanoXplore expired in March 2020, unexercised. 6)Net gain in the Company’s operating facility in Brazil Included in income for the year ended December 31, 2019 is a non-recurring benefit recognized in the Company’s operating facility in Brazil, included in the Rest of the World operating segment. The benefit represents a $6.5 million recovery of previously paid local social security taxes, partially offset by a $2.3 million true-up of the facility’s claims and litigation provision related to certain employee-related matters. The benefit was recorded against selling, general and administrative expense. 7)Adjustment to deferred tax asset in the United States Based on previously updated Company-wide business plans approved by the Board of Directors, and in conjunction with the Company’s financial performance, the Company recognized additional deferred tax assets related to operations in the U.S. as at December 31, 2019. The deferred tax assets recognized reflected the majority of the full value of the tax loss carryforwards available to the Company at that time, with a corresponding one-time, non-cash decrease in income tax expense of $17.3 million, as the Company believes it is more likely than not that these assets will be utilized before expiry.

Excluding the unusual and other items explained in Table A under “Adjustments to Net Income (Loss)”, Adjusted Net Income for the fourth quarter of 2020 increased by $10.4 million to $44.2 million or $0.55 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, from $33.8 million or $0.42 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, for the fourth quarter of 2019. Adjusted Net Income for the fourth quarter of 2020, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, was positively impacted by the following: higher gross margin on higher year-over-year sales as previously explained; anda year-over-year decrease in research and development costs due primarily to a decrease in new product and process research and development activity in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. These factors were partially offset by the following: overall negative fourth quarter results from the operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020;a year-over-year increase in SG&A expense, as previously discussed;a net foreign exchange loss of $0.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to a net foreign exchange gain of $0.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019; anda slightly higher effective tax rate on adjusted income due generally to the mix of earnings (21.3% for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to 21.0% for the fourth quarter of 2019).

Excluding these unusual and other items, Adjusted Net Income for the year ended December 31, 2020 decreased to $46.9 million or $0.58 per share, on a basic and diluted basis, from $187.7 million or $2.28 per share, on a basic basis, and $2.27 per share on a diluted basis, for the year ended December 31, 2019. Adjusted Net Income for the year ended December 31, 2020, as compared to the year ended December 31, 2019, was negatively impacted by the following: lower gross margin on lower year-over-year sales volume, as previously explained, due primarily to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic;overall negative results from the operations acquired from Metalsa, results for which were consolidated with those of the Company effective March 2, 2020;a $0.5 million loss on the disposal of property, plant and equipment for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to a gain of $0.9 million for the comparative period of 2019;a net unrealized foreign exchange loss of $6.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to a loss of $1.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2019; anda higher effective tax rate on adjusted income due generally to the mix of earnings and tax impacts of the unusual and other items explained in Table B under “Adjustments to Net Income (Loss)” (41.6% for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to 24.2% for the year ended December 31, 2019). These factors were partially offset by the following: year-over-year decrease in research and development costs due primarily to a decrease in new product and process research and development activity in light of the COVID-19 pandemic; anda year-over-year decrease in finance expense on the Company’s long-term debt as a result of lower borrowing rates.

However, the Company considers certain non-IFRS financial measures as useful additional information in measuring the financial performance and condition of the Company. These measures, which the Company believes are widely used by investors, securities analysts and other interested parties in evaluating the Company’s performance, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other publicly traded companies, nor should they be construed as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS. Non-IFRS measures include “Adjusted Net Income”, “Adjusted Net Earnings per Share (on a basic and diluted basis)”, “Adjusted Operating Income”, "Adjusted EBITDA”, “Free Cash Flow” and “Net Debt”.
