Share:

SWINDON, United Kingdom, July 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensata Technologies (NYSE:ST), a global industrial technology company and a leading provider of sensors, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $913.9 million, an increase of $74.0 million, or 8.8%, from revenue of $839.9 million in the second quarter of 2017.  Excluding a 2.4% positive effect from changes in foreign exchange rates, Sensata reported organic revenue growth of 6.4% in the second quarter of 2018.

Net income in the second quarter of 2018 grew 32.5%, totaling $105.3 million, which was 11.5% of revenue or $0.61 per diluted share, compared to net income of $79.5 million in the second quarter of 2017, which was 9.5% of revenue or $0.46 per diluted share.

Adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2018 grew 15.7%, totaling $160.8 million, which was 17.6% of revenue, or $0.93 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $139.0 million in the second quarter of 2017, which was 16.6% of revenue or $0.81 per diluted share.  Adjusted EBIT grew 11.0%, totaling $210.4 million, or 23.0% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2018 compared to $189.6 million or 22.6% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2017.

Changes in foreign currency exchange rates increased Sensata's revenues by $20.4 million, reduced Sensata's adjusted EBIT margin by 60 basis points, and had a negligible effect on Sensata's adjusted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the prior year period.

"We are growing faster than our markets as we continue to capture attractive secular growth opportunities in our industrial, automotive, and heavy vehicle & off road businesses," said Martha Sullivan, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "China remains our fastest growing region as a result of strong content growth and represents 15% of our revenues.  We also continue to expand our margins and grew our adjusted EPS by 15% in the second quarter of 2018.  Finally, we kicked off a $400 million share repurchase program that we expect to complete within the next six months, as part of our returns-driven capital deployment strategy."

Sensata established a share repurchase authorization at the beginning of June and repurchased 1.1 million shares for a total consideration of $60.1 million in the second quarter of 2018.

For the third quarter of 2018, Sensata anticipates revenue to be between $851 million and $875 million, compared to $819.1 million in the third quarter of 2017, representing organic revenue growth of 5 to 7 percent.  Additionally, the Company expects adjusted net income to be between $150 and $156 million and adjusted earnings per share to be between $0.88 and $0.92 in the third quarter of 2018, representing EPS growth of 9 to14 percent.

Sensata anticipates revenue to be between $3.493 billion and $3.555 billion for full year 2018, which would represent organic revenue growth of between 5 and 7 percent, compared to its previous guidance of 3 to 5 percent.  For full year 2018, Sensata expects adjusted EBIT to be between $821 and $837 million.  Additionally, the Company expects adjusted net income to be between $618 million and $634 million and adjusted earnings per share to be between $3.63 and $3.73 for full year 2018, which would represent growth of 14 to 17 percent.  Sensata expects that changes in foreign currency exchange rates will increase revenues by approximately 1 to 2 percent and will increase adjusted earnings per share by $0.05 to $0.09 for full year 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") with certain non-GAAP financial measures. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally to make operating and strategic decisions, including the preparation of our annual operating plan, evaluation of our overall business performance, and as a factor in determining compensation for certain employees. We believe presenting non-GAAP financial measures is useful for period-over-period comparisons of underlying business trends and our ongoing business performance. We also believe presenting these non-GAAP measures provides additional transparency into how management evaluates the business.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as supplemental in nature and are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as, or comparable to, similar non-GAAP measures presented by other companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures referenced by Sensata in this release include: adjusted net income, adjusted net income margin, adjusted earnings per share ("EPS"), adjusted earnings before interest and taxes ("EBIT"), adjusted EBIT margin, free cash flow, net debt, organic revenue growth, and segment profit margin measured on a constant currency basis.  We also refer to the change of certain non-GAAP measures, usually reported either as a percentage or number of basis points, between two periods and measured on either a reported or an organic basis, the latter of which excludes the impact of acquisitions, net of exited businesses that occurred within the previous 12 months and the effect of foreign currency exchange rate differences between the comparative periods.  Such changes are also considered non-GAAP measures.

Adjusted net income is defined as net income, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding certain non-GAAP adjustments which are described in the accompanying reconciliation tables. Adjusted net income margin is calculated by dividing adjusted net income by net revenue. Adjusted EPS is calculated by dividing adjusted net income by the number of diluted weighted-average ordinary shares outstanding in the period. We believe that these measures are useful to investors and management in understanding the ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends.

Adjusted EBIT is defined as net income, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding interest expense, net, provision for/(benefit from) income taxes, and certain non-GAAP adjustments which are described in the accompanying reconciliation tables. Adjusted EBIT margin is calculated by dividing adjusted EBIT by net revenue. We believe that these measures are useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, less additions to property, plant and equipment and capitalized software. We believe that this measure is useful to investors and management as a measure of cash generated by business operations that will be used to repay scheduled debt maturities and can be used to fund acquisitions, repurchase ordinary shares, or for the repayment of debt obligations.

Net debt is defined as total debt, capital lease and other financing obligations, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, less cash and cash equivalents. We believe that this measure is useful to investors and management as an indicator of trends in our overall financial condition.

Organic revenue growth is defined as the reported percentage change in net revenue, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding the impact of acquisitions, net of exited businesses that occurred within the previous 12 months and the effect of foreign currency exchange rate differences between the comparative periods. We believe that this measure is useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends.

Segment profit margin measured on a constant currency basis is defined as segment profit, excluding the favorable or unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate differences with the comparative (prior) period, divided by segment revenue, also adjusted to exclude the favorable or unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate differences with the comparative (prior) period. We believe that this measure is useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends.

The following unaudited table reconciles Sensata's net income to adjusted net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017.

(In 000s, except per share amounts)   Three months ended June 30,   Six months ended June 30,
    2018   2017   2018   2017
Net income   $ 105,288     $ 79,457     $ 195,778     $ 151,193  
Restructuring related and other   2,339     7,501     9,003     15,192  
Financing and other transaction costs   2,069         7,759      
Deferred loss/(gain) on other hedges   3,137     2,602     9,199     (2,738 )
Depreciation and amortization expense related to the step-up in fair value of fixed and intangible assets and inventory   35,881     41,372     71,511     83,366  
Deferred income tax and other tax expense/(benefit)   10,250     6,271     10,886     9,813  
Amortization of debt issuance costs   1,838     1,836     3,643     3,693  
Total adjustments   $ 55,514     $ 59,582     $ 112,001     $ 109,326  
Adjusted net income   $ 160,802     $ 139,039     $ 307,779     $ 260,519  
Weighted-average diluted shares outstanding   172,693     171,920     172,775     171,913  
Adjusted EPS   $ 0.93     $ 0.81     $ 1.78     $ 1.52  

Sensata's definition of adjusted net income excludes the deferred provision for/(benefit from) income taxes and other tax expense/(benefit). Sensata's deferred provision for/(benefit from) income taxes includes:  adjustments for book-to-tax basis differences due primarily to the step-up in fair value of fixed and intangible assets and goodwill, the utilization of net operating losses, and adjustments to our U.S. valuation allowance in connection with certain acquisitions. Other tax expense/(benefit) includes certain adjustments to unrecognized tax positions.

As Sensata treats deferred income taxes as an adjustment to compute adjusted net income, the deferred income tax effect associated with the reconciling items, above, would not change adjusted net income for any period presented.

The current income tax (benefit)/expense associated with the reconciling items above, which is included in adjusted net income, would be as follows: Depreciation and amortization expense related to the step-up in fair value of fixed and intangible assets and inventory: ($0.0) million and ($0.0) million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively and ($0.0) million and ($0.0) million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively; and Restructuring related and other of ($0.4) million and ($0.1) million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively and ($0.7) million and ($0.2) million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.
