Press Release

Cooper Tire & Rubber Company Reports First Quarter 2020 Results; Withdraws Outlook for 2020

Company Release - 5/7/2020 7:00 AM ET

FINDLAY, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cooper Tire & Rubber Company (NYSE: CTB) today reported a first quarter 2020 net loss of $12 million, or diluted loss per share of $0.23, compared with net income of $7 million, or $0.14 diluted earnings per share, for the same period last year.

First Quarter Highlights

  • Unit volume decreased 15.8 percent compared to the first quarter of 2019.
  • Net sales decreased 14.1 percent to $532 million.
  • Operating loss was $6 million, or 1.2 percent of net sales, compared to operating profit of $26 million, or 4.3 percent of net sales, in 2019.
  • Operating results include approximately $11 million of restructuring charges related to the transition at the company's now wholly owned Mexico manufacturing facility.
  • At the end of the first quarter, Cooper had $433 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents compared with $212 million in 2019. To maximize financial flexibility, the company drew down $270 million on its revolving credit facilities during the quarter.

“Cooper’s priorities during this unprecedented time have continued to be the health and safety of our employees, responsibilities to our broader communities, and commitments to our customers as well as all other key stakeholders. I am exceedingly proud of how Cooper employees around the globe, driven by our purpose, mission and values, have risen to the challenges,” said Cooper President & Chief Executive Officer Brad Hughes.

“We entered this challenging period caused by the global pandemic with a strong team and strategic plan, a solid cash position and borrowing capacity, appropriate inventory levels and a flexible global manufacturing footprint. Cooper was tracking well against our strategic initiatives and previously stated financial goals and had considerable momentum.

"In response to the coronavirus, we temporarily shut down our manufacturing plants for various periods of time while we continued to operate our distribution centers around the world. At the same time, we took several actions to improve liquidity. As we have communicated over recent weeks, our China, U.S. and Serbia manufacturing plants are back in operation. These facilities will continue to ramp up as conditions improve. Meanwhile, our U.K. and Mexico facilities remain temporarily closed.

“Overall, we believe Cooper is in a good position to benefit when the economy recovers. Over the past two years, we have transformed our company into a consumer driven organization with Cooper products now more available where consumers want to buy tires. We believe that our value proposition -- high quality tires at an affordable price -- will be even more compelling for consumers in the future economy, and our heritage of manufacturing tires in the U.S. for U.S. drivers will become even more important coming out of this period of uncertainty. Our research suggests consumer confidence in the Cooper brand is growing, and we believe that we stand to be a consumer tire partner of choice.”

First quarter net sales were $532 million compared with $619 million in the first quarter of 2019, a decrease of 14.1 percent. First quarter net sales were negatively impacted by $98 million of lower unit volume and $4 million of unfavorable foreign currency impact, partially offset by $15 million of favorable price and mix. Operating loss was $6 million compared with operating profit of $26 million in the first quarter of 2019. Key drivers included $30 million of higher manufacturing costs, $18 million of lower unit volume, $6 million of higher restructuring costs and $2 million of higher other costs, which were partially offset by $12 million of favorable raw material costs, $6 million of favorable price and mix, and $6 million lower SG&A expenses.

Cooper's first quarter raw material index decreased 6.0 percent compared to the first quarter of 2019. The raw material index increased 0.6 percent sequentially from 149.8 in the fourth quarter of 2019 to 150.7 in the first quarter of 2020.

The effective tax rate for the first quarter was (5.5) percent compared with 46.9 percent for the same period the prior year. The tax rate for the first quarter of 2020 included $4 million of additional unrecognized tax benefit related to the tax deductibility of certain business expenses incurred during the quarter. The tax rate for the first quarter of 2019 included the impact of final regulations related to U.S. income tax reform.

At the end of the first quarter, Cooper had $433 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents compared with $212 million at the end of the first quarter of 2019. To maximize financial flexibility, the company drew down $270 million on its revolving credit facilities during the quarter. In addition, Cooper has taken temporary actions to improve liquidity, including:

  • Reduced working capital, capital expenditures and discretionary spending.
  • Reduced salaries for executive leadership and the majority of salaried employees, and reduced cash retainers for members of our Board of Directors.
  • Suspended discretionary pension contributions and company contributions to employee 401(k) plans.
  • Furloughed a number of hourly and salaried employees.

Capital expenditures in the first quarter were $55 million, compared with $60 million, in the same period a year ago. First quarter selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses decreased 9.9 percent compared to the first quarter of 2019.

First quarter net sales in the International segment decreased 28.8 percent as a result of $46 million of lower unit volume and $4 million of unfavorable foreign currency impact, which were partially offset by $8 million of favorable price and mix. For the quarter, segment unit volume was down 31.8 percent compared to the same period a year ago.

The segment's first quarter operating loss was $10 million compared with an operating loss of $1 million in the first quarter of 2019. The quarter included $11 million of higher manufacturing costs, $4 million of lower unit volume and $1 million of higher other costs. This was partially offset by $1 million of lower raw materials and $1 million of favorable price and mix compared to the same period a year ago. The first quarter of 2019 also included $5 million of restructuring costs related to Cooper Tire Europe's decision to cease light vehicle tire production at its Melksham, England facility, positively impacting the year-over-year comparison.

Outlook

Due to the rapidly evolving environment and continued uncertainties resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, Cooper withdraws its previously announced full year 2020 outlook, which was issued on February 24. “We cannot at this time predict the extent or duration of the pandemic and its impacts on our financial and operating results for the full year. Given that the coronavirus will likely have a significant impact on the second quarter, we believe it will be the most challenging quarter of our year for operating profit. We have dramatically scaled back our capital expenditure plans, and now expect full year 2020 capital expenditures to be between $140 and $160 million, but this is dependent on the duration and severity of the pandemic. With this and other actions, we do not currently believe we will have a substantial cash usage in the second quarter. Overall, we are confident in our ability to weather the storm,” said Hughes.

“Prior to the pandemic, we were on pace relative to our original outlook, validating that our strategic plan remains the right path for our future. We entered this challenging period with a strong balance sheet and financial flexibility. While we will face uncertainty and many challenges, we believe Cooper will overcome the impacts of the coronavirus and we look forward to the opportunities ahead. We expect the economy to improve as the year progresses, and that our results will reflect this. For now, we will continue to focus on doing what is right for employee health and safety, our communities, customers and other key stakeholders.”

This release contains what the company believes are “forward-looking statements,” as that term is defined under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, regarding projections, expectations or matters the company anticipates may happen with respect to the future performance of the industries in which it operates, the economies of the U.S. and other countries, or the performance of the company itself, which involve uncertainty and risk. Such forward-looking statements are generally, though not always, preceded by words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “will,” “should,” “believes,” “projects,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” and similar terms that connote a view to the future and are not merely recitations of historical fact. Such statements are made solely on the basis of the company’s current views and perceptions of future events, and there can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be true.

It is possible that actual results may differ materially from projections or expectations due to a variety of factors, including, but not limited to:

  • the impact of labor problems, including labor disruptions at the company, its joint ventures, or at one or more of its large customers or suppliers;
  • changes in economic and business conditions in the world, including changes related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to the United Kingdom’s decision to withdraw from the European Union;
  • the inability to obtain and maintain price increases to offset higher production, tariffs, raw material or energy costs;

  • increased competitive activity, including actions by larger competitors or lower-cost producers;
  • the failure to develop technologies, processes or products needed to support consumer demand or changes in consumer behavior, brand perceptions, and preferences, including changes in sales channels;
  • consolidation or other cooperation by and among the company’s competitors or customers;
  • inaccurate assumptions used in developing the company’s strategic plan or operating plans, or the inability or failure to successfully implement such plans or to realize the anticipated savings or benefits from strategic actions;
  • risks relating to investments and acquisitions, including the failure to successfully integrate them into operations or their related financings may impact liquidity and capital resources;
  • the ultimate outcome of litigation brought against the company, including product liability claims, which could result in commitment of significant resources and time to defend and possible material damages against the company or other unfavorable outcomes;
  • the failure to successfully ramp up production at the company's new ACTR joint venture to produce TBR tires according to plans, and the ability to find and develop alternative sources for TBR products;
  • government regulatory and legislative initiatives including environmental, healthcare, privacy and tax matters;
  • changes in interest or foreign exchange rates or the benchmarks used for establishing the rates;
  • an adverse change in the company’s credit ratings, which could increase borrowing costs and/or hamper access to the credit markets;
  • failure to implement information technologies or related systems, including failure by the company to successfully implement ERP systems;
  • the risks associated with doing business outside of the U.S.;
  • technology advancements;
  • the inability to recover the costs to refresh existing products or develop and test new products or processes;
  • failure to attract or retain key personnel;

  • changes in the company’s relationship with its joint venture partners or suppliers, including any changes with respect to its former PCT joint venture's production of TBR products;
  • tax-related issues, including the ability to support certain tax positions, the impact of tax reform legislation and the inability to utilize deferred tax assets;
  • a variety of factors, including market conditions, may affect the actual amount expended on stock repurchases; the company’s ability to consummate stock repurchases; changes in the company’s results of operations or financial conditions or strategic priorities may lead to a modification, suspension or cancellation of stock repurchases, which may occur at any time; and
  • the inability to adequately protect the company’s intellectual property rights.

It is not possible to foresee or identify all such factors. Any forward-looking statements in this release are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by the company in light of its experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors it believes are appropriate in the circumstances. Prospective investors are cautioned that any such statements are not a guarantee of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected.

The company makes no commitment to update any forward-looking statement included herein or to disclose any facts, events or circumstances that may affect the accuracy of any forward-looking statement. Further information covering issues that could materially affect financial performance is contained in the company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, other financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The company’s methods of determining these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the methods used by other companies for these or similar non-GAAP financial measures. Accordingly, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to measures used by other companies. As required by SEC rules, detailed reconciliations between the company’s GAAP and non-GAAP financial results are provided on the attached schedule. The company believes return on invested capital (“ROIC”) provides additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating the company’s financial and operating performance. The company defines ROIC as the trailing four quarters’ after tax operating profit, utilizing the company’s adjusted effective tax rate, divided by the total invested capital, which is the average of ending debt and equity for the last five quarters. The company believes ROIC is a useful measure of how effectively the company uses capital to generate profits.
