2018 marked our first full year as a more diversified and globally competitive company with the addition of our European operations. Despite slightly weaker year-over-year industry production in both of our regions, the overall market remained relatively strong compared to historical levels. During the year, we made progress with our efforts to integrate our businesses, and we remain focused on fully leveraging the best practices of both teams to continue realizing the benefits of the acquisition of our European operations. In the second half of the year, we faced some hurdles due to lower industry volumes in Europe, electrical rate increases in Mexico, and launch challenges as we continued to see a shift towards more sophisticated finishes and larger diameter wheels, which is underscored by the increase in our Value-Added Sales per wheel, commented Timothy McQuay, Executive Chairman of Superior Industries. Looking forward to 2019, our expectation for the market is low-single digit industry production declines in both regions. Despite the production outlook, we remain fully committed to executing our strategy to enhance our operational efficiencies, specifically in North America, and supporting our global customer base to deliver shareholder value. To that end, we are continuing our search for a permanent Chief Executive Officer with a focus on finding an individual with a proven track record of operational success.

Note that comparative results for the full year 2018 were impacted by the inclusion of an additional five months of Superiors European operations compared to 2017 prior to the closing of the acquisition on May 30, 2017, and an additional week in 2017 compared to 2018 in North America to align the fiscal year of our North America operations with the calendar year.

Fourth Quarter Results

Wheel unit shipments were 5.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, a decrease of 3.7%, compared to unit shipments of 5.4 million in the prior year period. The change in units was driven by higher shipments in Superiors European operations, offset by a decline in North America due primarily to lower year-over-year production by our key customers.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $378.8 million, compared to net sales of $361.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. This increase in the quarter was driven by higher aluminum prices, larger diameter wheels, and a higher proportion of shipments from our European operations, partially offset by lower volumes in North America.

Value-Added Sales, a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net sales less the value of aluminum and services provided by outsourced service providers that are included in net sales, were $206.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, a 1.4% increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in Value-Added Sales was driven by the continued shift towards production of larger, more complex wheels, and more shipments in Europe, partially offset by lower volume in North America. See Non-GAAP Financial Information below and the reconciliation of consolidated net sales to Value-Added Sales in this press release.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $36.3 million, compared to $39.7 million in the prior year period. Gross profit as a percentage of Value-Added Sales was 17.6%, compared to 19.5% in the prior year quarter. The decrease in gross profit for the quarter was primarily due to lower production and sales volume and production inefficiencies in North America, offset partially by favorable mix and strong performance in our European operations.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $17.1 million, or 4.5% of net sales, compared to $25.9 million, or 7.2% of net sales in the prior year period. Selling, general, and administrative expenses were lower for the fourth quarter of 2018 due to a reduction in costs related to the integration of our European operations and lower compensation accruals.

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $19.2 million, or 9.3% of Value-Added Sales, compared to income from operations of $13.8 million, or 6.8% of Value-Added Sales in the prior year period.

The income tax provision for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018 was $5.2 million on pre-tax income of $13.4 million. The provision for the quarter was impacted primarily by a valuation allowance on a deferred tax asset for interest expense, which was recorded during 2018. Superior determined the deferred tax asset for interest expense to not be allowed based on revised guidance from the IRS in November related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

For the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company reported net income of $8.2 million, and earnings per diluted share of $0.61, including the benefit of acquisition and one-time items totaling $0.77 per diluted share. This compares to a net loss of $4.6 million, or $0.50 loss per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $45.6 million, or 22.1% of Value-Added Sales, for the fourth quarter of 2018. This compares to $48.9 million, or 24.0% of Value-Added Sales, for the fourth quarter of 2017. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Value-Added Sales was primarily driven by lower production and sales volumes and production inefficiencies in North America, offset partially by lower compensation accruals, improved product mix, and strong performance in Europe.

The Company reported net cash provided by operating activities of $91.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to cash provided by operating activities of $46.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase in net cash from operating activities was primarily driven by improvement in working capital.

Cash used for capital expenditures during the fourth quarter to support expansion and enhancement of the Companys portfolio of products and technologies, as well as ongoing maintenance, totaled $22.2 million.

During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company paid total dividends of $7.1 million, including $2.3 million to holders of common stock, $3.9 million to holders of preferred stock, and $1.0 million to minority stockholders of Superior Industries Europe AG whose shares were purchased in 2018. Superior also purchased a total of $5.7 million in shares from minority shareholders of Superior Industries Europe AG during the fourth quarter. The amount still outstanding related to the minority interest in Superior Industries Europe AG is approximately $14 million.

Full Year 2018 Results

Wheel unit shipments were 21.0 million for 2018 compared to unit shipments of 17.0 million in the prior year. The increase in unit shipments was primarily due to the inclusion of the additional five months of Superiors European operations in 2018, which drove 4.2 million units of improvement, as well as slightly higher shipments during the first half of 2018, offset by lower volumes in the second half of 2018.

Net sales for 2018 were $1,501.8 million, compared to net sales of $1,108.1 million in 2017. Value-Added Sales, a non-GAAP financial measure, were $797.2 million for 2018 versus $616.8 million in the prior year. Both net sales and Value-Added Sales benefited from the inclusion of five additional months of Superiors European operations in addition to stronger product mix comprised of larger diameter wheels. Net sales also benefited from higher aluminum prices. See Non-GAAP Financial Information below and the reconciliation of consolidated net sales to Value-Added Sales in this press release.

Gross profit for 2018 was $163.5 million compared to $102.9 million in the prior year. Gross profit as a percentage of Value-Added Sales was 20.5% compared to 16.7% in the prior year. The increase in gross profit was due mainly to the inclusion of an additional five months of Superiors European operations in 2018, impacts from purchase accounting in 2017, strong first-half results in both regions, and improved product mix, offset partially by lower second-half volume globally and second-half production inefficiencies in North America.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses for 2018 were $77.7 million, or 5.2% of net sales, compared to $81.4 million, or 7.4% of net sales, in the prior year. The decrease in SG&A relative to net sales primarily reflects lower acquisition and integration expenses. Excluding acquisition-related items in both periods, selling, general, and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales were flat year-over-year.

Income from operations for 2018 was $85.8 million compared to income from operations of $21.5 million in the prior year.

The provision for income taxes for 2018 was $6.3 million resulting in an effective tax rate of 19.5% for the year. This compares to an income tax provision for the year ended 2017 of $6.9 million.

For 2018, the Company reported net income of $26.0 million, or earnings per diluted share of $0.29, including the benefit of acquisition and one-time items totaling $0.34 per diluted share. This compares to a net loss of $6.2 million, or a loss per diluted share of $1.01, in 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $185.6 million, or 23.3% of Value-Added Sales, in 2018, which compares to $140.1 million, or 22.7% of Value-Added Sales, in 2017. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily driven by the inclusion of an additional five months of Superiors European operations in 2018, strong first-half results in both regions and improved product mix with larger diameter wheels, partially offset by second-half production inefficiencies in North America and lower second-half global volume. See Non-GAAP Financial Information below and the reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA in this press release.

The Company reported net cash provided by operating activities of $156.1 million for the full year 2018 compared to cash provided by operating activities of $63.7 million in 2017. The increase in net cash from operating activities was driven by the additional five months of European operations and improved working capital management including the introduction of an Accounts Receivable program in North America. Compared to year end December 31, 2017, factoring at year end December 31, 2018 increased, generating a benefit to net cash provided by operating activities of approximately $32.5 million.

Cash used by investing activities included $77.7 million of capital expenditures during the year compared to capital expenditures of $70.9 million in the prior year. The increase from the prior year was primarily driven by the inclusion of an additional five months of Superiors European operations in 2018.

Cash used by financing activities included dividends totaling $28.8 million with dividends to common stockholders of $9.0 million, preferred dividends of $18.8 million, which includes $1.9 million of participation on the common dividends as well as $16.9 million of dividends at the 9.0% rate (note that due to timing of business days in the year, there was one additional preferred dividend paid during the calendar year), and dividends of $1.0 million paid to minority shareholders of Superior Industries Europe AG. Superior also purchased $39.1 million of shares from minority shareholders of Superior Industries Europe AG during the year.

Capital Structure and Liquidity as of December 31, 2018

Total funded debt and net debt at December 31, 2018 were $685 million and $637 million, respectively. Cash and available amounts under revolving credit facilities totaled $239 million.

2019 Outlook

Based on industry outlook for North America and Europe as well as Superiors portfolio of product and launches, Superiors full year 2019 outlook is as follows:

  • Superior expects net sales to be in the range of $1.42 billion to $1.47 billion, driven by unit shipments of 19.85 million to 20.30 million
  • Value-Added Sales is expected to be in the range of $765 million to $805 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $170 million to $185 million
  • Cash flow from operations is expected to be between $125 million and $145 million
  • Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $85 million

Value-Added Sales and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. See Non-GAAP Financial Information. In reliance on the safe harbor provided under section 10(e) or Regulation S-K, Superior has not quantitatively reconciled differences between Adjusted EBITDA presented in the 2019 Outlook to net income, the most comparable GAAP measure, as Superior is unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in net income without unreasonable efforts and due to the inherent uncertainty regarding such variables. Superior also believes that such reconciliation would imply a degree of precision that could potentially be confusing or misleading to investors. However, the magnitude of these amounts may be significant.
