Sensata Technologies Reports Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Oct 30, 2019

SWINDON, United Kingdom, Oct. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensata Technologies (NYSE: ST), a global industrial technology company and a leading provider of sensor-rich solutions that create insights for customers, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Operating results for the third quarter of 2019 compared to the third quarter of 2018 are summarized below.  These results include non-GAAP financial measures, each of which is defined and reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measure later in this press release.

Revenue:

  • Revenue was $849.7 million, a decrease of $23.8 million, or 2.7%, compared to $873.6 million in the third quarter of 2018.
  • Revenue declined 2.8% on an organic basis, which excludes the effects of the following:
    • Foreign currency exchange rates: (0.3%) change versus the prior year period.
    • Acquisitions and divestitures, net: 0.4% change versus the prior year period.

Operating income:

  • Operating income was $146.1 million (17.2% of revenue), a decrease of $76.2 million, or 34.3%, compared to $222.3 million (25.5% of revenue) in the third quarter of 2018.
  • Adjusted operating income was $199.5 million (23.5% of revenue), a decrease of $8.2 million, or 3.9%, compared to $207.6 million (23.8% of revenue) in the third quarter of 2018.

Earnings per share:

  • Earnings per share were $0.44, a decrease of 50.0% compared to $0.88 per share in the third quarter of 2018.
  • Adjusted earnings per share were $0.90, a decrease of 1.1% compared to $0.91 per share in the third quarter of 2018
  • Changes in foreign currency exchange rates increased Sensata's adjusted earnings per share by $0.04 in the third quarter of 2019 compared to the prior year period. The net effect of acquisitions and divestitures decreased Sensata's adjusted earnings per share by $0.03 in the third quarter of 2019 compared to the prior year period.

“Despite lower than expected revenues as a result of sustained end market weakness, we exceeded our guidance for adjusted operating margin in the third quarter, while generating strong free cash flow," said Martha Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer of Sensata. "Our continued focus on margins and profitability coupled with our proven ability to identify and implement cost-cutting initiatives, enables us to react quickly to changing market conditions and limit the impact of weaker end market demand on our bottom-line results.

"Even in the face of these efficiency initiatives, we continued to sustain long-term investments in growth initiatives such as Electrification and Smart & Connected, which we believe are critical to our future success.  We anticipate that our end markets will remain weak and that our customers will likely reduce inventory through the remainder of this year.  As a result, we are lowering our full year 2019 revenue and EPS guidance to reflect this evolving demand environment, while continuing to position Sensata for future growth opportunities."

During the third quarter of 2019, Sensata repurchased approximately 2.1 million ordinary shares for total consideration of $97.6 million as part of a previously announced share repurchase program.  As of September 30, 2019, approximately $422 million remains available for future share repurchases.

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 earnings per share (“EPS”), adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, free cash flow, organic revenue growth, and segment operating margin measured on a constant currency basis. We also refer to changes in certain non-GAAP measures, usually reported either as a percentage or number of basis points, between two periods and measured on either a reported, constant currency, or an organic basis, the latter of which excludes the net impact of acquisitions and divestitures for the 12-month period following the respective transaction date(s) 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 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 our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends.

Adjusted operating income is defined as operating income, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding certain non-GAAP adjustments which are described in the accompanying reconciliation tables. Adjusted operating margin is calculated by dividing adjusted operating income 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 accelerated repayment of debt obligations.

Organic revenue growth is defined as the reported percentage change in net revenue, calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding the period-over-period impact of foreign exchange rate differences as well as the net impact of acquisitions and divestitures for the 12-month period following the respective transaction date(s). 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 projected (GAAP) diluted EPS per share to its projected adjusted EPS for the three months ending December 31, 2019 and the full year ending December 31, 2019. The amounts in the table below have been calculated based on unrounded numbers. Accordingly, certain amounts may not sum due to the effect of rounding.

* We are unable to predict movements in commodity prices and, therefore, the impact of mark-to-market adjustments on our commodity forward contracts to our projected 2019 diluted net income per share. In prior periods, such adjustments have been significant to our reported GAAP earnings.
