NEW ALBANY, Ohio, Aug. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  CVG (NASDAQ: CVGI), a diversified industrial products and services company, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights (Compared with prior-year period, where comparisons are noted)

  • Revenue of $257.9 million, up 103.3% and up sequentially 5.2% from the record Q1 2021 revenue. The increase year over year is primarily driven by a very weak Covid impacted Q2 2020 comparable, new business wins in Warehouse Automation and demand growth in North American OEM truck.
  • Operating Income of $16.3 million, up $26.8 million primarily due to a very weak Covid-impacted Q2 2020 comparable and higher sales volume in Q2 2021.
  • Adjusted operating income of $16.6 million, up $20.2 million due to higher sales volume and an improved cost structure driven by 2020 restructuring actions.
  • Net income of $5.1 million, or $0.16 per diluted share. Excluding debt refinancing and other costs, adjusted net income was $10.7 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, an increase of $0.57 per share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $21.6 million, up $20.4 million due to higher sales volumes when compared to a very weak Covid impacted Q2 2020 comparable, lower costs and improved sales mix.
  • Warehouse automation revenues grew to $52.3 million, representing 20.3% of consolidated sales in Q2 2021.
  • Estimated $129.0 million of net new annualized business secured year to date, driven by electric vehicle platform wins as well as wins in warehouse automation, recreation and specialty vehicle markets.
  • During the quarter, the Company refinanced its debt with a new bank group with a flexible design that enables us to have up to $200 million of borrowing capacity and reduction of interest expense by $3.1 million per quarter, on a full quarter basis. This is a major milestone in our business transformation program.

Harold Bevis, President and Chief Executive Officer of CVG, said, “Our results are continuing confirmation that our strategic initiatives to transform CVG into a secular growth business are taking hold. We are diversifying our customer base and expanding our end market coverage to mitigate cyclicality as we strive to transform CVG into a secular growth business. This transformation is being driven by Warehouse Automation which delivered 25% sequential growth and now represents 20% of total Company sales in the second quarter. We are also having strong success winning new business in the Electric Vehicle sector with multiple new wins and new products in the quarter across our business portfolio in this important end market. Currently, we are working with 25 electric vehicle OEM’s on 52 opportunities and believe we are well positioned for the transition in to electric vehicles away from internal combustion engine vehicles. Year to date, we have achieved approximately $129.0 million of net new annualized business awards; a majority of which are in the EV sector and, we believe, provides visibility for future revenue growth.”

Chris Bohnert, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "While we continued to deliver record results in the second quarter, we also remained focused on driving financial flexibility and improved operational gains. During the quarter, we refinanced our debt which saved us $2.5 million compared to the prior year period and will provide $3.1 million of interest savings, on a full quarter basis. This refinancing also provides flexibility to invest in our strong sales growth and new business opportunities. Our margins will remain a focus in the second half of the year as we continue to implement actions such as material substitutions, increased supplier communications and production schedule adjustments to overcome material and labor shortages and commodity cost pressures we are experiencing.”

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

In general, the non-GAAP measures exclude items that (i) management believes reflect the Company’s multi-year corporate activities; or (ii) relate to activities or actions that may have occurred over multiple or in prior periods without predictable trends. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate the Company’s performance, engage in financial and operational planning and to determine incentive compensation.

Management provides these non-GAAP financial measures to investors as supplemental metrics to assist readers in assessing the effects of items and events on the Company’s financial and operating results and in comparing the Company’s performance to that of its competitors and to comparable reporting periods. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements set forth above should be carefully evaluated.
