Garrett President and CEO Olivier Rabiller commented, “Garrett delivered solid 2018 results consistent with the high-end of our previous forecast with revenue growth from new product launches well above industry growth rates, confirming the translation of our strong customer win rates into our financials. We ended 2018 with gasoline sales representing 27% of revenue in the fourth quarter and we remain on track to rebalance our portfolio by the end of 2019 when net sales from gasoline sales is expected to largely match diesel sales. Garrett also improved its Adjusted EBITDA margin, excluding hedging impacts, by 80 basis points for the year due to ongoing cost control and productivity initiatives. Our solid cash generation has already enabled us to reduce debt and begin to deleverage our financial profile, providing a strong start upon completion of our initial quarter as an independent company.”

Mr. Rabiller added, “We remain well positioned for future growth as we continue to benefit from our global scale and develop the next generation of technology focused on electrification and software. By working closely with our customers, we can accelerate our differentiated technology solutions to the market and help solve their challenges by redefining and advancing motion.”

2019 Outlook

For the full year 2019, Garrett expects to be between 2% and 4% in organic growth in net sales, and between $630 million and $650 million in Adjusted EBITDA, (as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $618 million in 2018 on a comparable basis) assuming current foreign exchange rates. We are also targeting Adjusted Levered Free Cash Flow conversion in 2019 between 55% and 60%. The rebalancing of Garrett’s portfolio towards gasoline products continues and our gasoline business is expected to be at similar levels by the end of 2019.

Results of Operations

Net sales for full year 2018 were $3,375 million, an increase of 9.0% from $3,096 million in 2017. On an organic basis, net sales for the year increased approximately 6%. The increase in net sales for 2018 was primarily driven by growth in light vehicles OEM products of approximately $220 million, along with growth in commercial vehicle and aftermarket products. Light vehicles OEM product growth was primarily driven by higher gasoline volumes in Europe, China, North America, and South Korea, resulting from increased turbocharger penetration in gasoline engines and new product launches. Additionally, there were increased diesel volumes in China and Japan. For the fourth quarter 2018, net sales of $799 million were essentially flat compared to $804 million in the fourth quarter 2017.

Cost of goods sold for full year 2018 was $2,599 million, compared to $2,361 million in 2017. The increase was primarily driven by more direct material costs and labor stemming from higher volumes. In addition, research and development expenses were $128 million versus $119 million in 2017. For the fourth quarter of 2018, the cost of goods sold was $627 million versus $631 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Research and development expenses were $32 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 as compared to $30 million in the year-earlier period.

Gross profit percentage for full year 2018 of 23.0% decreased from 23.7% in 2017 primarily due to the impact from product mix and pricing as well as inflation, partially offset by higher productivity. For the fourth quarter of 2018, gross profit percentage of 21.5% was the same compared to the year-earlier period.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for full year 2018 totaled $249 million, as compared to $249 million in 2017. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A for the year declined to 7.4% from 8.0% in 2017, primarily due to greater operating leverage. For the fourth quarter of 2018, SG&A decreased to $63 million from $69 million in the year-earlier period. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A declined to 7.9% from 8.6% in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Other expenses - net for full year 2018 declined to $120 million from $130 million in 2017. Following Garrett’s spin-off in 2018, the company recognized a $16 million benefit related to the estimated indemnification obligation to Honeywell. For the fourth quarter of 2018, other expenses, net totaled ($12) million versus $1 million in the year-earlier period.

Income before taxes for full year 2018 was $396 million, an increase of 8% from $366 million in 2017. For the fourth quarter of 2018, income before taxes was $103 million as compared to $104 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Net income for full year 2018 was $1,180 million, as compared to a loss of $983 million in 2017, and includes a one-time tax benefit of $879 million. The 2018 tax benefit was primarily from internal restructuring of Garrett’s business in advance of the spin-off attributable to currency impacts for withholding taxes on undistributed foreign earnings, partially offset by adjustments to the provisional tax amount related to the U.S. tax reform. For the fourth quarter of 2018, net income was $43 million, which includes a tax expense of $60 million, as compared to a net loss of $1,220 million, inclusive of a tax expense of $1,324 million, in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Earnings per share was $15.93 and $15.86 per basic and diluted share, respectively in 2018 as compared to a loss of ($13.27) per basic and diluted share in 2017. The weighted average number of common shares outstanding was 74,059,240 for basic shares and 74,402,148 for diluted shares in 2018, and 74,070,852 for both basic and diluted shares in 2017.

Expenditures for Property, Plant and Equipment for full year 2018 totaled $95 million compared to $103 million in 2017. For the fourth quarter of 2018, capital expenditures were $29 million versus $47 million in the year-earlier period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of December 31, 2018, Garrett had approximately $689 million in available liquidity, including $196 million in cash and cash equivalents and $493 million available under its revolving credit facility, representing an increase of $92 million in available liquidity since September 30, 2018.

As of December 31, 2018, net debt totaled $1,432 million compared to $1,548 million as of September 30, 2018, a reduction of approximately $116 million. During the fourth quarter 2018, Garrett fully repaid the $98 million related party note and slightly reduced Net Debt to Consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Credit Agreement) from 3.07x to 2.96x. The weighted average stated interest rate was 3.1% as of December 31, 2018, and Garrett has no significant debt maturities until 2023.

Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted EBITDA for full year 2018 increased 5% to $618 million from $590 million in 2017. Excluding the impact of gains or losses from currency hedging activities, Adjusted EBITDA increased 14% to $656 million from $576 million in 2017, primarily due to higher volumes associated with new product launches.

For the fourth quarter of 2018, Adjusted EBITDA increased 3% to $137 million from $133 million in the same period in 2017. Excluding the impact of gains or losses from currency hedging activities, Adjusted EBITDA increased 5% to $141 million from $134 million in the prior year.

For the full year 2018, cash flow provided by operations minus capital expenditures was $278 million.

Material Weakness in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

In accordance with the terms of our Indemnification and Reimbursement Agreement with Honeywell, our Consolidated and Combined Balance Sheets reflect a liability of $1,244 million in Obligations payable to Honeywell as of December 31, 2018, (the “Indemnification Liability”). The amount of the Indemnification Liability is based on information provided to us by Honeywell with respect to Honeywell’s assessment of its own asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable as of such date and is calculated in accordance with the terms of the Indemnification and Reimbursement Agreement. Honeywell estimates its future liability for asbestos-related claims based on a number of factors.

In the course of preparing our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our Consolidated and Combined Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, our management determined that there is a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting relating to the supporting evidence for our liability to Honeywell under the Indemnification and Reimbursement Agreement. Specifically, we were unable to independently verify the accuracy of the certain information Honeywell provided to us that we used to calculate the amount of our Indemnification Liability, including information provided in Honeywell's actuary report and the amounts of settlement values and insurance receivables. For example, Honeywell did not provide us with sufficient information to make an independent assessment of the probable outcome of the underlying asbestos proceedings and whether certain insurance receivables are recoverable.

We are working to obtain additional information about the Indemnification Liability through a dialogue and iterative process with Honeywell. We are still engaged in that process, and it remains a high priority for the Company.

Forward-Looking Statements

This presentation contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of fact, that address activities, events or developments that we or our management intend, expect, project, believe or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements including without limitation our statements regarding our anticipated financial performance, the rebalancing of our portfolio, projections and explanations regarding our technology solutions. Although we believe forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors, which may cause the actual results or performance of the company to be materially different from any future results or performance expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to risks relating to the completion of the audit of our annual financial statements; and those described in our Registration Statement on Form 10 and quarterly report on Form 10Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, as well as our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, under such headings “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements.” You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this document. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and actual results, developments and business decisions may differ from those envisaged by our forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This presentation includes EBIT, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA minus CAPEX, Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBITDA excluding hedging impact, Net Debt, Net Debt to Consolidated EBITDA, Consolidated Debt to Consolidated EBITDA, Adjusted Unlevered Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Levered Free Cash Flow, Levered Free Cash Flow, Consolidated EBITDA, Consolidated EBITDA excluding Honeywell indemnity obligation; Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA margin excluding hedging impact, Consolidated EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBIT Margin, Consolidated EBITDA excluding Honeywell indemnity obligation Margin, Cash flow from operations minus capital expenditures, organic sales growth and other financial measures not compliant with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). The Non-GAAP financial measures provided herein are adjusted for certain items as presented in the Appendix containing Non-GAAP Reconciliations and may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other companies in our industry, as other companies may define such measures differently. Management believes that, when considered together with reported amounts, these measures are useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends. Garrett believes that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin (both including and excluding hedging impacts), Consolidated EBITDA, Consolidated EBITDA Margin, and Adjusted EBIT are important indicators of operating performance because they exclude the effects of income taxes and certain other expenses, as well as the effects of financing and investing activities by eliminating the effects of interest and depreciation expenses and therefore more closely measures our operational performance. These metrics should be considered in addition to, and not as replacements for, the most comparable GAAP measure. For additional information with respect to our Combined Financial Statements, see our Form 10 and quarterly report on Form 10Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Additional disclaimers

Prior to Garrett’s spin-off from Honeywell on October 1, 2018, Garrett’s historical financial statements were prepared on a stand–alone basis and derived from the consolidated financial statements and accounting records of Honeywell. Accordingly, for periods prior to October 1, 2018, our financial statements are presented on a combined basis and for the periods subsequent to October 1, 2018 are presented on a consolidated basis (collectively, the historical financial statements for all periods presented are referred to as “Consolidated and Combined Financial Statements”). The Consolidated and Combined Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The historical consolidated and combined financial information may not be indicative of our future performance and does not necessarily reflect what our consolidated and combined results of operations, financial condition and cash flows would have been had the business operated as a separate, publicly traded company during the periods presented, particularly because of changes that we have experienced and expect to continue to experience in the future as a result of our separation from Honeywell, including changes in the financing, cash management, operations, cost structure and personnel needs of our business.

(2) For periods prior to the Spin-Off, we reflect an estimated liability for resolution of pending and future asbestos-related and environmental liabilities primarily related to the Bendix legacy Honeywell business, calculated as if we were responsible for 100% of the Bendix asbestos-liability payments. We recognized a liability for any asbestos-related contingency that was probable of occurrence and reasonably estimable. In connection with the recognition of liabilities for asbestos-related matters, we recorded asbestos-related insurance recoveries that are deemed probable. In periods subsequent to the Spin-Off, the accounting for the majority of our asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable reflect the terms of the Indemnification and Reimbursement Agreement with Honeywell entered into on September 12, 2018, under which we are required to make payments to Honeywell in amounts equal to 90% of Honeywell’s asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable, primarily related to the Bendix business in the United States, as well as certain environmental-related liability payments and accounts payable and non-United States asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable, in each case related to legacy elements of the Business, including the legal costs of defending and resolving such liabilities, less 90% of Honeywell’s net insurance receipts and, as may be applicable, certain other recoveries associated with such liabilities.
 
(3) Non-operating (income) expense adjustment excludes net interest (income), pension expense, equity income of affiliates, and the impact of foreign exchange.
 
(4) Stock compensation expense adjustment includes only non-cash expenses.
 
(5) Repositioning charges adjustment primarily includes severance costs, related to restructuring projects to improve future productivity.
