Shiloh Industries Reports Second-Quarter Fiscal 2018 Results and Record Quarterly Revenue


VALLEY CITY, Ohio, June 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shiloh Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHLO), a leading global supplier of lightweighting, noise, and vibration solutions to the automotive, commercial vehicle and other industrial markets, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2018 second-quarter and six months ended April 30, 2018.

Second-Quarter 2018 Highlights:

  • Revenues increased 8.9% to $297.3 million as compared to second-quarter 2017

  • Gross profit was $31.5 million and margin of 10.6%

  • Net income was $4.0 million or 17 cents per diluted share

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $20.3 million and margin of 6.8%

First-Half 2018 Highlights (compared to First-Half 2017):

  • Revenues increased 4.6% to $545.0 million

  • Gross profit increased 3.1% to $59.4 million

  • Net income increased 302% to $8.9 million

  • Net income per diluted share increased 217% to 38 cents per diluted share

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $36.8 million

"Shiloh remained on track with our plan in the second quarter given the significant plant and product launch activity as we converted more of our wins from recent years into commercial production," said Ramzi Hermiz, president and chief executive officer, of Shiloh Industries, Inc.

Strategic Highlights
On March 1, Shiloh completed the strategic acquisition of Brabant Alucast Italy and Brabant Alucast Netherlands. This acquisition expands Shiloh's technology portfolio with the addition of aluminum casting capabilities in Europe. The deal also brought additional magnesium capacity supporting growing customer demand for this level of lightweight performance.  Shiloh is one of the leading automotive structural magnesium component manufacturers globally.

"As we look forward, we see meaningful opportunity to improve profitability of the newly acquired business. That improvement, coupled with our efforts to drive performance in the base business, has us well positioned to achieve our margin targets," according to Hermiz.

Additionally, Shiloh celebrated the opening of: (1) its new aluminum products facility in China, which is well positioned to support the growing local electric vehicle market in Asia, (2) its new structural magnesium die casting operation in Clarksville, Tennessee, and (3) its new engineering lab in Plymouth, Michigan.

Restructuring Actions
During the second quarter, Shiloh incurred restructuring expense of $1.5 million related to a strategic action initiated in the fourth-quarter of fiscal 2017. This action is designed to improve future profitability and competitiveness as the company continues to proactively address the shift in consumer preferences to trucks and SUVs away from passenger cars and the desire to increase flexibility to manage cyclical changes.

2018 Outlook
Shiloh is reaffirming its adjusted EBITDA guidance range for 2018 of $73 million to $76 million which includes minimal contribution from the Brabant acquisition, considering acquisition and integration costs and headwinds from increasing raw material and launch costs.  This guidance reflects an adjusted EBITDA margin range of 7.0% to 7.2% as a result of the acquisition's current lower margin contribution. Additionally, the company continues to expect annual capital expenditures to remain approximately 4% to 5% of revenue.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures: "EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA margin" and "adjusted earnings per share."  We define EBITDA as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and other adjustments as described in the reconciliations accompanying this press release. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues as shown in the reconciliations accompanying this press release. Adjusted earnings per share excludes certain income and expense items as shown in the reconciliation accompanying this press release. We use EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted earnings per share as supplements to information provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in evaluating our business and they are included in this press release because they are principal factors upon which our management assesses performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are set forth below. The non-GAAP measures presented in this release are not measures of performance under GAAP. These measures should not be considered as alternatives for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  Other companies in our industry may define these non-GAAP measures differently than we do and, as a result, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies; and certain of our non-GAAP financial measures exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. Given the inherent uncertainty regarding special items and other expenses in any future period, a reconciliation of forward-looking financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is not feasible. The magnitude of these items, however, may be significant.
