TRW Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Results

- Record fourth quarter sales of $4.5 billion, an increase of 12% compared to the prior year; record full year sales of $17.4 billion, an increase of 6% compared to 2012.

LIVONIA, Mich., Feb. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. (NYSE: TRW), the global leader in active and passive safety systems, today reported fourth quarter 2013 financial results with sales of $4.5 billion, an increase of 12% compared to the prior year period.  The Company reported GAAP fourth quarter net earnings of $363 million or $3.00 per diluted share, which compares to net earnings of $419 million or $3.26 per diluted share in the prior year period.

Excluding special items from the Company's current and prior year quarterly results, the Company reported fourth quarter 2013 net earnings of $222 million, or $1.84 per diluted share, an increase of 19% compared to last year's fourth quarter earnings of $1.55 per diluted share.    

The Company's full year 2013 sales grew to a record $17.4 billion, an increase of 6% compared to 2012.  For the year, GAAP net earnings were $970 million, or $7.85 per diluted share.  Similar to the Company's quarterly results, both the 2013 and 2012 full year results contain special items.  Excluding special items, the Company reported full year 2013 net earnings of $850 million, or $6.89 per diluted share, an increase of 12% compared to 2012 earnings of $6.14 per diluted share. 

"2013 was another successful year for TRW as the Company set a new record for sales, increased cash generation, and demonstrated its ongoing commitment to enhancing shareholder value by increasing its share repurchase program to $2 billion," said John C. Plant, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "TRW's successes in 2013 highlight the Company's strong market position as our achievements were accomplished against a backdrop of challenging economic conditions, especially in our largest market, Europe."       

Fourth Quarter 2013
The Company reported fourth quarter 2013 sales of $4.5 billion, an increase of $464 million from the prior year period.  The higher level of sales was driven by increasing demand for TRW's innovative technologies, higher vehicle production volumes, and the positive impact of currency movements between the two periods.                         

The Company's fourth quarter 2013 operating income was $300 million, compared with $155 million in the 2012 period.  The 2013 period included restructuring and asset impairment charges totaling $23 million and a net charge of $13 million relating to certain pension and other post retirement benefit matters, primarily lump sum pension and retiree medical buyouts made to certain of our U.S. employees.  The 2012 period included restructuring and asset impairment charges totaling $88 million and a net charge of $52 million relating to certain pension and other post retirement benefit matters.  Excluding these special items from both periods, operating income for the fourth quarter was $336 million (margin of 7.5%), which compares to $295 million (margin of 7.3%) in the prior year period.                               

Net interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $35 million, which compares to $29 million in the 2012 period.  In addition, a net loss on retirement of debt totaling $15 million was recognized in the fourth quarter of 2013.                        

A tax benefit of $107 million was recognized in the fourth quarter of 2013, which compares to a tax benefit of $286 million in the prior year.  Both the 2013 and 2012 periods include special tax items.  In 2013, net special tax items totaling $185 million were recognized primarily relating to the recognition of available foreign tax credits and the impact of various tax law changes.  The 2012 period included $360 million of net special tax items primarily relating to changes in TRW's overall deferred tax position as a result of tax planning initiatives and the reversal of the Company's valuation allowance on deferred tax assets in Canada.    

The Company reported 2013 fourth quarter GAAP net earnings of $363 million, or $3.00 per diluted share, which compares to GAAP net earnings of $419 million, or $3.26 per diluted share in the 2012 period. 

Excluding special items, the Company reported fourth quarter 2013 net earnings of $222 million, or $1.84 per diluted share, which compares to net earnings of $199 million or $1.55 per diluted share in the 2012 period. 

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and special items ("adjusted EBITDA") were $447 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the prior year level of $404 million.  See page A6 for a description of the special items excluded in calculating adjusted EBITDA.    

Full Year 2013
The Company reported record 2013 sales of $17.4 billion, an increase of $991 million compared to prior year sales.  The increase in sales resulted primarily from a higher level of demand for TRW's broad array of active and passive safety products and improved vehicle production volumes in North America and China.           

For full year 2013, the Company reported operating income of $1,227 million which compares to $1,085 million in the prior year.  Both 2013 and 2012 included special items including restructuring and asset impairment charges and net charges relating to certain pension and other post retirement benefit matters, primarily lump sum pension and retiree medical buyouts made to certain of our U.S. employees, former employees and retirees.  Excluding these items from both periods, the Company reported operating income of $1,306 million (margin of 7.5%) in the 2013 period, which compares to $1,232 million (margin of 7.5%) in 2012.  The positive profit contribution from the higher level of sales was partially offset by several factors including planned increases in costs to support future growth.

Net interest expense for 2013 totaled $132 million, which compares to $111 million in the prior year period.  In addition, the 2013 period included a net loss on retirement of debt totaling $20 million, compared with 2012, which recognized a net loss on retirement of debt totaling $6 million.          

A tax expense of $114 million was recognized in 2013, which compares to a tax benefit of $33 million in the prior year.  Excluding the tax benefits related to the special items previously noted in both years, tax expense was $326 million and $340 million for 2013 and 2012, respectively.           

The Company reported 2013 GAAP net earnings of $970 million, or $7.85 per diluted share, which compares to GAAP net earnings of $1,008 million, or $7.83 per diluted share in the prior year period.

Excluding special items, the Company reported 2013 net earnings of $850 million, or $6.89 per diluted share, which compares to net earnings of $788 million or $6.14 per diluted share in 2012. 

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $1,738 million in 2013, compared to $1,648 million in the prior year.  See page A6 for a description of the special items excluded in calculating adjusted EBITDA.

Cash Flow and Capital Structure
Fourth quarter 2013 net cash flow provided by operating activities totaled $886 million, which compares to $711 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Capital expenditures were $324 million in the current quarter compared to $298 million last year.  Fourth quarter free cash flow (cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures) was $562 million, compared to $413 million in the prior year quarter. 

During the fourth quarter of 2013, TRW used approximately $60 million of cash to repurchase over 1.0 million shares of its common stock and $214 million of cash to retire $205 million of face value senior notes.  In addition, the Company completed a $400 million notes offering during the quarter in anticipation of bond debt maturing in March 2014.      

For full year 2013, net cash provided by operating activities was $1,126 million, which compares to $956 million in 2012.  Capital expenditures were $735 million in 2013, which compares to $623 million last year.  For 2013, free cash flow was a positive $391 million, compared to $333 million in 2012.  

During 2013, TRW used approximately $520 million of cash to repurchase over 7.5 million shares of its common stock and $309 million of cash to retire $296 million of face value senior notes.  In addition, $26 million of exchangeable notes were converted into Company stock during 2013.

As of December 31, 2013, the Company had $2,114 million of debt and $1,729 million of cash and cash equivalents, resulting in net debt (defined as debt less cash and cash equivalents) of $385 million.  The $652 million increase in total gross debt compared to year end 2012 primarily reflects the Company's two bond offerings completed during the year.  In addition to enabling the Company to call and retire certain of its higher cost debt in 2013, the proceeds from the offerings provide flexibility ahead of $467 million of face value bond debt maturing in March 2014.             

2014 Outlook
TRW's planning assumptions for industry production volumes in 2014 are approximately 16.8 million units in North America and 19.5 million units in Europe, up 4% and 1%, respectively, compared to 2013 levels.  The Company continues to expect expansion in vehicle production volumes in China and rest of world regions.  Based on these production levels, the negative impact of lost sales related to the exit of certain of our businesses within our North American brake component and assembly operations, and the Company's expectations for foreign currency exchange rates, full year 2014 sales are expected to range between $17.3 and $17.6 billion, with first quarter sales expected to be approximately $4.3 billion.        

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Conference Call

Reconciliation to GAAP
In addition to GAAP results included within this press release, the Company has provided certain information which is not calculated according to GAAP ("non-GAAP"), such as net earnings, operating income, tax expense and diluted earnings per share each excluding special items; adjusted EBITDA; and free cash flow.  Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of the Company and its business segments and to forecast future periods.  Management believes that investors will likewise find these non-GAAP measures useful in evaluating such performance.  Such measures are frequently used by security analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.    

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 similarly titled measures of other companies.  For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measure and for share amounts used to derive earnings per share, please see the financial schedules that accompany this release.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are not recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be alternatives to the most comparable GAAP amounts.  Further, since all companies do not use identical calculations, our definition and presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
EBITDA as calculated below is a measure used by management to evaluate the operating performance of the Company and its business segments and to forecast future periods.  Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding restructuring charges, asset impairments and other significant special items.  Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the performance of ongoing operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate impact in any particular period.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not purport to be alternatives to net earnings as an indicator of operating performance, nor to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity.  Additionally, neither is intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management's discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements.

Free Cash Flow
Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, and is used by management in analyzing the Company's ability to service and repay its debt and to forecast future periods.  However, this measure does not represent funds available for investment or other discretionary uses since it does not deduct cash used to service debt or for other non-discretionary expenditures.

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
Want to enable self-service provisioning of application environments in minutes that mirror production?

Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water,...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
