Gentherm (THRM) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of 44.44% and 17.57%, respectively, for the quarter ended June 2020. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?
Reduced Operating Expenses by 30% from the Prior-year Period Strong Cash Flow Generation in the First Half of 2020 Despite Unprecedented Market Challenges Total Liquidity of $369 Million at Quarter EndNORTHVILLE, Mich., Aug. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gentherm (NASDAQ:THRM), the global market leader of innovative thermal management technologies, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.Second Quarter Highlights * Product revenues of $136.1 million decreased 44.1% from $243.3 million in the 2019 second quarter * Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and divested assets, product revenues decreased 42.3% year over year * GAAP diluted loss per share was $0.32 compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.08 for the prior-year period * Adjusted loss per share (see table herein) was $0.30. Adjusted earnings per share in the prior-year period was $0.47 * Secured automotive new business awards totaling $300 millionPhil Eyler, Gentherm's President and CEO, said “I am proud of the team for their strong execution in the second quarter despite the unprecedented uncertainties created by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. While the Company’s revenue performance reflects the challenges in the underlying markets, our ongoing disciplined approach to managing expenses allowed us to reduce operating expense by 30% from a year ago. In Medical, we delivered double-digit revenue growth both year over year and sequentially. Importantly, we generated a 24% increase in cash flow from operations in the first half of 2020 versus the prior-year period.“While the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to create challenges and uncertainties in the near term, the momentum we are seeing in new awards, winning the coveted General Motors Supplier of the Year award, coupled with aggressive cost management and our strong balance sheet position us well to continue to deliver over the long term,” continued Eyler.2020 Second Quarter Financial ReviewProduct revenues for the second quarter of 2020 of $136.1 million declined $107.3 million, or 44.1%, as compared to the prior-year period. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and divested assets, product revenues declined 42.3% year over year.Automotive revenues declined 45.8% year over year. All product categories saw revenue declines except Electronics. Adjusting for foreign currency translation, organic Automotive revenues decreased 44.9% year over year. According to IHS Markit, actual light vehicle production declined by approximately 38.9% when compared to the second quarter of 2019 in the Company’s key markets of North America, Europe, China, Japan and Korea.The 14.3% revenue decrease in Industrial resulted from the divestiture of Global Power Technologies (“GPT”), which was sold on October 1, 2019. The decrease was partially offset by year-over-year growth of 18.2% in Gentherm Medical, primarily due to increased demand for our Blanketrol® solutions, including the support of temperature management for COVID-19 patients.See the “Revenue by Product Category” table included below for additional detail.The gross margin rate decreased to 19.6% in the current-year period, compared with 29.9% in the prior-year period, primarily as a result of lower Automotive volume due to the COVID-19 pandemic and annual customer price reductions. These were partially offset by supplier cost reductions and positive sales mix as a result of the strength in our Medical business.Net research and development (R&D) expenses of $15.3 million in the 2020 second quarter decreased $3.9 million, or 20.3%, year over year as a direct result of cost reduction initiatives and lower incentive compensation.Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses of $21.9 million in the 2020 second quarter decreased $10.3 million, or 32.0%, versus the prior-year period. The year-over-year decline was primarily driven by the impact of cost reduction initiatives, lower incentive compensation and the divestiture of the GPT business.During the quarter, the Company reduced its restructuring expenses by a net $0.6 million, primarily as a result of proactively reducing cash restructuring costs associated with previously announced plan to improve the Company’s manufacturing productivity and rationalize its footprint.As described more fully in the table included below, “Reconciliation of Net (Loss) Income to Adjusted EBITDA,” the Company recorded Adjusted EBITDA of $0.1 million during the second quarter of 2020 compared to $32.2 million in the prior year.Income tax expense in the 2020 second quarter was $0.2 million, as compared with $5.5 million in the prior-year period. The tax amount in 2020 included the effect of the settlement and closure of multi-year international tax audits of $3.4 million. Adjusted for the audit settlement impacts, the effective tax rate was 31.4%. This rate differed from the Federal statutory rate of 21%, primarily due to higher tax rates in foreign tax jurisdictions.GAAP diluted loss per share for the second quarter of 2020 was $0.32 compared with diluted earnings per share of $0.08 for the prior-year period. Adjusted diluted loss per share, excluding restructuring expenses, income from sale of patents, unrealized currency gain, and other impacts (see table herein), was $0.30. Adjusted diluted earnings per share in the prior-year period was $0.47.As a result of the unprecedented uncertainty facing the automotive industry and global economy, Gentherm withdrew its 2020 guidance on March 25, 2020 and is not providing an update at this time. However, the Company expects product revenues in the third quarter of 2020 to improve sequentially to be in the range of $210 to $240 million.Conference CallAs previously announced, Gentherm will conduct a conference call today at 8:00 am Eastern Time to review these results.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, deferred financing cost amortization, and other gains and losses not reflective of the Company’s ongoing operations and related tax effects including transaction expenses, debt retirement expenses, impairment of assets held for sale, gain or loss on sale of business, restructuring expense, unrealized currency gain or loss and unrealized revaluation of derivatives. The Company defines Adjusted EPS as earnings adjusted by gains and losses not reflective of the Company’s ongoing operations and related tax effects including transaction expenses, debt retirement expenses, impairment of assets held for sale, gain or loss on sale of business, restructuring expense, unrealized currency gain or loss and unrealized revaluation of derivatives. The Company’s reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA is provided in this release. The Company’s Reconciliation of Adjusted EPS can be found in the supplemental materials furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to the Company’s Form 8-K dated August 4, 2020 and also is included in the presentation entitled “Q2 2020 Gentherm Incorporated Earnings Conference Presentation,” which can be found on the Events page of the Investor section of Gentherm's website at www.gentherm.com.In evaluating its business, the Company considers and uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS as supplemental measures of its operating performance. Management provides Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS measures so that investors will have the same financial information that management uses with the belief that it will assist investors in properly assessing the Company's performance on a period-over-period basis. Other companies in our industry may calculate these non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do and those calculations may not be comparable to our metrics. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted EPS in isolation, or as a substitute for net income or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP.Non-GAAP measures referenced in this release may include estimates of future Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS. Such forward-looking non-GAAP measures may differ significantly from the corresponding GAAP measures, due to depreciation and amortization, tax expense, and/or interest expense, some or all of which management has not quantified for the future periods.GENTHERM INCORPORATED ACQUISITION TRANSACTION EXPENSES, PURCHASE ACCOUNTING IMPACTS AND OTHER EFFECTS (In thousands, except per share data) (Unaudited) Three Months Ended Six Months Ended June 30, June 30, 2020 2019 2020 2019 Transaction related current expenses Acquisition transaction expenses$— $342 $— $380 Non-cash purchase accounting impacts Customer relationships amortization 1,595 1,936 3,191 3,764 Technology amortization 438 498 877 980 Inventory fair value adjustment 108 117 216 156 Other effects Restructuring expenses (598) 1,231 3,168 3,145 Gain on sale of business — — — (4,970) Gain on sale of patents (1,978) — (1,978) — Impairment loss — 9,885 — 20,369 Unrealized currency (gain) loss 1,609 71 2,374 (923) CFO transition — — — 1,065 Total acquisition transaction expenses, purchase accounting impacts and other effects$1,174 $14,080 $7,848 $23,966 Tax effect of above (619) (1,117) (2,329) (905) Net income effect$555 $12,963 $5,519 $23,061 Earnings per share - difference Basic$0.02 $0.39 $0.17 $0.69 Diluted$0.02 $0.39 $0.17 $0.69 Adjusted earnings per share Basic$(0.30) $0.47 $0.22 $1.02 Diluted$(0.30) $0.47 $0.22 $1.02 GENTHERM INCORPORATEDCONSOLIDATED CONDENSED BALANCE SHEETS (In thousands, except share data) (Unaudited) June 30, 2020 December 31, 2019 ASSETS Current Assets: Cash and cash equivalents$209,170 $50,443 Restricted cash 2,505 2,505 Accounts receivable, less allowance of $1,800 and $1,193, respectively 118,885 159,710 Inventory: Raw materials 61,762 61,323 Work in process 6,575 7,444 Finished goods 44,293 49,712 Inventory, net 112,630 118,479 Other current assets 36,592 42,726 Total current assets 479,782 373,863 Property and equipment, net 149,240 160,605 Goodwill 64,629 64,572 Other intangible assets, net 48,399 49,783 Operating lease right-of-use assets 12,780 11,587 Deferred income tax assets 57,972 57,650 Other non-current assets 10,568 9,326 Total assets$823,370 $727,386 LIABILITIES AND SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY Current Liabilities: Accounts payable$65,521 $83,035 Current lease liabilities 4,184 4,586 Current maturities of long-term debt 2,500 2,500 Other current liabilities 63,805 66,583 Total current liabilities 136,010 156,704 Long-term debt, less current maturities 198,099 78,124 Pension benefit obligation 7,690 8,057 Non-current lease liabilities 10,097 6,751 Other non-current liabilities 2,153 5,100 Total liabilities$354,049 $254,736 Shareholders’ equity: Common Stock: No par value;
