"While our long-term business outlook has never been better, we are mindful of persistent inflation and macro headwinds, particularly in Europe. As a result, we are accelerating actions to improve profitability and enhance business resiliency in the short-term, while continuing to lean into investments that we believe will sustainably drive future growth and profitability over the long-term."

Second Quarter 2022 Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company reported U.S. GAAP revenue of $4.1 billion, an increase of 7% from the prior year period. Adjusted for currency exchange and commodity movements, revenue increased by 9% in the second quarter. This reflects growth of 21% in North America, 4% in Europe, 2% in Asia, which includes a decline of 2% in China, and 30% in South America, our smallest region.

The Company reported a second quarter 2022 U.S. GAAP net loss of $61 million and $0.23 per diluted share, compared to net income of $147 million and earnings of $0.54 per diluted share in the prior year period. Second quarter Adjusted Net Income, a non-GAAP financial measure defined below, totaled $62 million, or earnings of $0.22 per diluted share, compared to $202 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

Second quarter Adjusted Operating Income, a non-GAAP financial measure defined below, was $213 million, compared to $338 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Operating Income margin was 5.3%, compared to 8.9% in the prior year period, reflecting adverse impacts from the second quarter COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns in China, continued adverse impacts from global inflationary pressures and the worldwide semiconductor shortage, partially offset by the favorable impact of price recoveries. Depreciation and amortization expense totaled $193 million, as compared to $197 million in the prior year period.

Interest expense for the second quarter totaled $56 million, as compared to $38 million in the prior year period, which reflects impacts from our $2.5 billion debt issuance in the first quarter of 2022 in anticipation of the Wind River Systems, Inc. acquisition.

Tax expense in the second quarter of 2022 was $16 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 100%, which was impacted by the geographic mix of earnings and increased losses in certain jurisdictions where no tax benefit is recognized, including the impact of charges resulting from the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Tax expense in the second quarter of 2021 was $28 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 11%.

The Company generated net cash flow from operating activities of $95 million in the second quarter, compared to $297 million in the prior year period.

Year-to-Date 2022 Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company reported U.S. GAAP revenue of $8.2 billion, an increase of 5% from the prior year period. Adjusted for currency exchange and commodity movements, revenue increased by 6% during the period. This reflects growth of 14% in North America, 6% in Asia, which includes growth of 6% in China, and 27% in South America, our smallest region, partially offset by a decline of 1% in Europe.

For the 2022 year-to-date period, the Company reported U.S. GAAP net income of $12 million and earnings of $0.04 per diluted share, compared to $426 million and $1.57 per diluted share in the prior year period. Year-to-date Adjusted Net Income totaled $242 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, compared to $535 million, or $1.89 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

The Company reported Adjusted Operating Income of $537 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $812 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Operating Income margin was 6.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to 10.4% in the prior year period, reflecting adverse impacts from the second quarter COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns in China, continued adverse impacts from global inflationary pressures and the worldwide semiconductor shortage, partially offset by the favorable impact of price recoveries. Depreciation and amortization expense totaled $384 million, as compared to $390 million in the prior year period.

Interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2022 totaled $99 million, as compared to $78 million in the prior year period, which reflects impacts from our $2.5 billion debt issuance in the first quarter of 2022 in anticipation of the Wind River Systems, Inc. acquisition.

Tax expense for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $37 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 19% which was impacted by the geographic mix of earnings and increased losses in certain jurisdictions where no tax benefit is recognized, including the impact of charges resulting from the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Tax expense in the prior year period was $76 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of 12%.

Net cash flow used in operating activities totaled $107 million in the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to net cash flow generated by operating activities of $549 million in the prior year period. As of June 30, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $4.7 billion and total available liquidity of $7.1 billion.

Reconciliations of Adjusted Revenue Growth, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Cash Flow Before Financing, which are non-GAAP measures, to the most directly comparable financial measures, respectively, calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") are provided in the attached supplemental schedules.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains information about Aptiv's financial results which are not presented in accordance with GAAP. Specifically, Adjusted Revenue Growth, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share and Cash Flow Before Financing are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted Revenue Growth represents the year-over-year change in reported net sales relative to the comparable period, excluding the impact on net sales from currency exchange, commodity movements, acquisitions, divestitures and other transactions. Adjusted Operating Income represents net income (loss) before interest expense, other income (expense), net, income tax (expense) benefit, equity income (loss), net of tax, amortization, restructuring, other acquisition and portfolio project costs, asset impairments, other charges related to the Ukraine/Russia conflict and gains (losses) on business divestitures and other transactions. Other acquisition and portfolio project costs include costs incurred to integrate acquired businesses and to plan and execute product portfolio transformation actions, including business and product acquisitions and divestitures. Adjusted Operating Income margin is defined as Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization (including asset impairments), interest expense, income tax (expense) benefit, other income (expense), net, equity income (loss), net of tax, restructuring and other special items.

Adjusted Net Income represents net income (loss) attributable to Aptiv before amortization, restructuring and other special items, including the tax impact thereon. Adjusted Net Income Per Share represents Adjusted Net Income divided by the Adjusted Weighted Average Number of Diluted Shares Outstanding for the period. The Adjusted Weighted Average Number of Diluted Shares Outstanding assumes the application of the if-converted method of share dilution, if not already applied for GAAP purposes of calculating the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding. Cash Flow Before Financing represents cash provided by (used in) operating activities plus cash provided by (used in) investing activities, adjusted for the purchase price of business acquisitions and other transactions, the cost of significant technology investments and net proceeds from the divestiture of discontinued operations and other significant businesses.

Effective on January 1, 2022, the Company now excludes amortization expense of intangible assets from the calculation of Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share. Financial results reported in this release for both the current and historical period have been prepared under this new definition. Outlook information presented above is also calculated under this new definition. The forward-looking non-GAAP measures presented in this release are reconciled under this new definition to their closest GAAP financial measure on pages 18 and 19.

Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are useful to both management and investors in their analysis of the Company's financial position, results of operations and liquidity. In particular, management believes Adjusted Revenue Growth, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share and Cash Flow Before Financing are useful measures in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure, provide improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and that may obscure underlying business results and trends. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the attached supplemental schedules at the end of this press release. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

APTIV PLC
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(Unaudited)


In this press release the Company has provided information regarding certain non-GAAP financial measures, including "Adjusted Revenue Growth," "Adjusted Operating Income," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted Net Income," "Adjusted Net Income Per Share" and "Cash Flow Before Financing." Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to their closest GAAP financial measure in the following schedules.


Effective on January 1, 2022, the Company now excludes amortization expense of intangible assets from the calculation of Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share. Financial results reported in this release for both the current and historical period have been prepared under this new definition and are reconciled as such in the tables below.


Adjusted Revenue Growth: Adjusted Revenue Growth is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's financial performance which management believes is useful to investors in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measure, provides improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and which may obscure underlying business results and trends. Our management utilizes Adjusted Revenue Growth in its financial decision making process, to evaluate performance of the Company and for internal reporting, planning and forecasting purposes. Adjusted Revenue Growth is defined as the year-over-year change in reported net sales relative to the comparable period, excluding the impact on net sales from currency exchange, commodity movements, acquisitions, divestitures and other transactions. Not all companies use identical calculations of Adjusted Revenue Growth, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted Operating Income: Adjusted Operating Income is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's financial performance which management believes is useful to investors in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measure, provides improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and which may obscure underlying business results and trends. Our management utilizes Adjusted Operating Income in its financial decision making process, to evaluate performance of the Company and for internal reporting, planning and forecasting purposes. Management also utilizes Adjusted Operating Income as the key performance measure of segment income or loss and for planning and forecasting purposes to allocate resources to our segments, as management also believes this measure is most reflective of the operational profitability or loss of our operating segments. Adjusted Operating Income is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense, other income (expense), net, income tax (expense) benefit, equity income (loss), net of tax, amortization, restructuring and other special items. Not all companies use identical calculations of Adjusted Operating Income, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Operating income margin represents Operating income as a percentage of net sales, and Adjusted Operating Income margin represents Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of net sales.
