NEW ALBANY, Ohio, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVGI) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Results
Fourth quarter 2013 revenues were $183.0 million compared to $173.4 million for the prior-year period, an increase of 6 percent, primarily driven by increased North American Class 8 production levels in the fourth quarter of 2013.  Operating income for the fourth quarter was $8.0 million compared to an operating loss of $2.3 million for the prior-year period.  Net income was $1.1 million for the fourth quarter, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $5.6 million, or $(0.20) per diluted share in the prior-year period. Diluted shares outstanding were 29.0 million for the quarter compared to 28.4 million for the prior-year period.

Fiscal Year 2013 Results
Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $747.7 million, compared to $857.9 million for the prior year, a decrease of $110.2 million, or 13 percent, due primarily to a production decrease in the North American Class 8 production levels and reduced volumes in the global construction end markets CVG serves.  Operating income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $6.4 million compared to $44.1 million for the prior year. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $12.4 million, or $(0.44) per diluted share, compared to net income of $50.0 million, or $1.76 per diluted share, in the prior year. The decline in net income was a result of a decline in sales volume due to market conditions and an income tax benefit of $27 million recorded for the year ended December 31, 2012 primarily related to the release of a valuation allowance. As disclosed in prior 2013 releases, the pre-tax impact on 2013 net income included $2.8 million of strategic third-party consulting services, $2.5 million expense related to the change in the Company's executive leadership, $1.8 million of charges for employee separations and  $2.7 million of asset impairments of manufacturing equipment and IT systems.

The Company did not have any outstanding borrowings under its asset-based revolver at December 31, 2013 and, as a result, was not subject to any financial maintenance covenants. In addition, the Company had $72.7 million of cash at December 31, 2013 and $29.7 million of availability from its asset-based revolver for total liquidity of $102.4 million.

"Our full-year 2013 revenues were impacted by an 11 percent decline in North American Class 8 production levels when compared to full-year 2012.  During 2013, our global construction revenues also declined when compared to 2012, principally due to customer destocking and industry declines in all regions CVG serves.  We were pleased that the cost containment actions we took helped improve our operating performance in the fourth quarter, including adjustments to our SG&A expense in part to reposition the Company for growth.  As we invest to further develop the Company, we anticipate our SG&A spend will return to a more normalized, historical level," said Richard Lavin, President and CEO of Commercial Vehicle Group.

"We remain focused not just on our cost rationalization goals, but also on a diversification strategy to position the Company for future profitable growth and to reduce our cyclicality.  During the year, we reorganized the leadership team, performed an in-depth evaluation of the business and established key initiatives to enhance our growth prospects and profitability.  As we move into 2014 and continue the execution phase of our plan, we envision a Company that will be more global, better engaged with customers and offering products that enable the success of our customers," Lavin added. 

Management estimates the 2014 North American Class 8 truck production levels will be in the range of 250,000 to 275,000 units compared to 248,000 units built in 2013.  The Company also expects that global production of mid- to heavy-construction equipment will be up modestly compared to 2013 levels.

Tim Trenary, Chief Financial Officer for Commercial Vehicle Group, stated, "We are taking the necessary steps to improve our cost structure and enhance our margins.  Right sizing our manufacturing capacity, enhancing operational excellence and repurposing SG&A expenses are key elements of our efforts.  We finished the year with a solid balance sheet and believe we have the liquidity to support the achievement of our goals to increase penetration of CVG's end markets, enlarge our customer base and diversify geographically." 

Lavin concluded, "Looking forward, we are very encouraged by CVG's potential for increased organic growth, especially in our construction and agriculture end markets and in the Asia-Pacific region.  The past year was a period of evaluation, change and investment to position the Company for profitable growth.  We believe that, over the long term, our efforts will deliver improved results and increased shareholder value."
