THREE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2019

Overall, our results came in slightly ahead of our expectations in the second quarter of 2019, driven by our Body Exteriors & Structures, Power & Vision and Complete Vehicles segments.  Our Seating segment was below our expectations mainly due to continued launch costs and inefficiencies at a new facility.

On a consolidated basis, we posted sales of $10.13 billion for the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 1% from the second quarter of 2018, which compares favourably to global light vehicle production that decreased 6%.  Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and divestitures net of acquisitions, sales increased 5%, and by segment: Complete Vehicles, Seating and Power & Vision increased 49%, 3% and 1%, respectively, while Body Exteriors & Structures decreased 4%.

Adjusted EBIT decreased 16% to $677 million in the second quarter of 2019 resulting in an adjusted EBIT as a percentage of sales of 6.7% in the second quarter of 2019 compared to 7.8% in the second quarter of 2018.  This is mainly due to lower margins in our:

  • Power & Vision segment, largely driven by higher engineering and other costs in our ADAS business, and lower equity income;
  • Seating segment primarily as a result of higher launch costs and inefficiencies at a new facility, lower equity income, and higher commodity costs; and
  • Body Exteriors & Structures segment primarily as a result of reduced earnings due to lower sales.

Income from operations before income taxes was $595 million for the second quarter of 2019 compared to $819 million in the second quarter of 2018.  Included in income from operations before income taxes in the second quarter of 2019 were Other expense, net items totaling $68 million comprised of net unrealized losses on the revaluation of our investments and restructuring costs partially offset by an adjustment to the gain on the sale of our Fluid Pressure & Controls business.  Income from operations before income taxes in the second quarter of 2018 included Other income, net items totaling $39 million.  Excluding Other expense (income), net from both periods, income from operations before income taxes decreased $117 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to the second quarter of 2018.

Net income attributable to Magna International Inc. was $452 million for the second quarter of 2019 compared to $626 million in the second quarter of 2018.  Included in net income attributable to Magna International Inc. in the second quarter of 2019 were Other expense, net items totaling $57 million after tax.  Net income attributable to Magna International Inc. in the second quarter of 2018 included Other income, net items totaling $36 million after tax.  Excluding Other expense (income), net from both periods, net income attributable to Magna International Inc. decreased $81 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared to the second quarter of 2018.

Diluted earnings per share decreased to $1.42 in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $1.77 in the comparable period.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share decreased 5% to $1.59 compared to $1.67 for the second quarter of 2018.

In the second quarter of 2019, we generated cash from operations of $920 million.  Investment activities for the second quarter of 2019 were $587 million, including $328 million in fixed asset additions, $152 million in acquisitions, and a $107 million increase in investments, other assets and intangible assets.
