CEO comments

"We made an encouraging start to 2019 and are reaffirming our outlook for the year. Consistent with our vision to be the pioneers in propulsion technology solutions which enable vehicles to drive cleaner, better and further, we continue to have strong momentum on key initiatives that will support our long-term growth," said Richard F. Dauch, Chief Executive Officer of Delphi Technologies. "Having completed my initial orientation of the company in Q1, I am even more bullish about the opportunity here at Delphi Technologies to create value for all our stakeholders. We are now working at pace to define, prioritize and resource the actions we will take to ensure this potential becomes a reality. Our teams are operating with a renewed sense of urgency and focus on execution, and I look forward to the future with confidence."

First quarter 2019 results

The Company reported first quarter 2019 revenue of $1.2 billion, a decrease of 11% from the prior year period. Adjusted for currency exchange, revenue decreased by 6% in the first quarter. Adjusted revenue reflects a decrease of 7% in Powertrain Systems and a decrease of 6% in Aftermarket. On a regional basis, adjusted revenue also reflects growth of 3% in Europe, 8% in South America, and a decrease of 25% in Asia Pacific, and 5% in North America.

The Company reported first quarter 2019 U.S. GAAP net income of $16 million and net income of $0.18 per diluted share, compared to $98 million and $1.10 per diluted share in the prior year period. First quarter Adjusted Net Income, totaled $59 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, which compares to Adjusted Net Income in the prior year period of $116 million, or $1.30 per diluted share. The decrease in Adjusted Net Income was primarily due to unfavorable product mix, most notably a decrease in revenues of higher margin passenger car diesel fuel injection systems, and an increase in revenues of lower margin advanced gasoline direct injection fuel systems and power electronics products. In addition, the decrease in Adjusted Net Income was also impacted by decreased volume and adverse currency exchange movements, partially offset by improvements in operational performance.

First quarter U.S. GAAP operating income was $55 million, compared to $138 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Operating Income was $87 million, compared to $159 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Operating Income margin decreased 470 basis points in the first quarter of 2019 to 7.6%, compared with 12.3% in the prior year period. The decrease in Adjusted Operating Income was primarily due to unfavorable product mix as referenced above, decreased volume and adverse currency exchange movements, partially offset by improvements in operational performance. Depreciation and amortization expense (including asset impairment charges and amortization of deferred debt issuance costs) totaled $54 million in the first quarter as compared to $51 million in the prior year period.

Interest expense for the first quarter totaled $18 million, as compared to $20 million interest expense in the prior year period.

U.S. GAAP tax expense in the first quarter of 2019 was $8 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 32%, compared to $22 million, or an effective rate of 18%, in the prior year period. The increase in the effective tax rate primarily reflects the impacts of unfavorable changes in geographic income mix.

The Company generated net cash flow from operating activities of $21 million in the first quarter, compared to $75 million in the prior year period, which primarily reflects the decrease in net income partially offset by an improvement in net working capital. Capital expenditures totaled $131 million in the first quarter, compared to $66 million in the prior year period. The increased spending is primarily due to investments to support long-term growth in key technologies, particularly gasoline direct injection fuel systems and power electronics products, and becoming a stand-alone public company.

Use of non-GAAP financial information

This press release contains information about Delphi Technologies' financial results which are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Specifically, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per Share and the Adjusted Effective Tax Rate are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted Operating Income represents net income before interest expense, other (expense) income, net, income tax expense, equity income, net of tax, restructuring, separation costs, asset impairments and pension charges. Adjusted Operating Income margin is defined as Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of Net sales.

Adjusted Net Income represents net income attributable to Delphi Technologies before restructuring and other special items, including the tax impact thereon. Adjusted Net Income per Share represents Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. Adjusted Effective Tax Rate represents income tax expense less the income tax related to the adjustments noted above for Adjusted Net Income, divided by income before income taxes less adjustments.

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 Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share are useful measures in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding U.S. 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 U.S. 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 the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following:  global and regional economic conditions, including conditions affecting the credit market and those resulting from the United Kingdom referendum held on June 23, 2016 in which voters approved an exit from the European Union, commonly referred to as "Brexit";  risks inherent in operating as a global company, such as, fluctuations in interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates and economic, political and trade conditions around the world; the cyclical nature of automotive sales and production; the potential disruptions in the supply of and changes in the competitive environment for raw material integral to the Company's products; the Company's ability to maintain contracts that are critical to its operations; potential changes to beneficial free trade laws and regulations such as the North American Free Trade Agreement; the ability of the Company to achieve the intended benefits from its separation from its former parent or from acquisitions the Company may make; the ability of the Company to attract, motivate and/or retain key executives; the ability of the Company to avoid or continue to operate during a strike, or partial work stoppage or slow down by any of its unionized employees or those of its principal customers; the ability of the Company to attract and retain customers; changes in the costs of raw materials; the Company's indebtedness, including the amount thereof and capital availability and cost; the cost and outcome of any claims, legal proceedings or investigations; the failure or breach of information technology systems; severe weather conditions and natural disasters and any resultant disruptions on the supply or production of goods or services or customer demands; acts of war and/or terrorism, as well as the impact of actions taken by governments as a result of further acts or threats of terrorism; and the timing and occurrence (or non-occurrence) of other events or circumstances that may be beyond the Company's control.

Additional factors are discussed under the captions "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is impossible for us to predict these events or how they may affect the Company. It should be remembered that the price of the ordinary shares and any income from them can go down as well as up. The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events and/or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES

(Unaudited)

In this press release the Company has provided information regarding certain non-GAAP financial measures, including "Adjusted Operating Income," "Adjusted Net Income" and "Adjusted Net Income per Share." Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to their closest U.S. GAAP financial measure in the following schedules.

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. 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 the Company's segments, as management also believes this measure is most reflective of the operational profitability or loss of the operating segments. Adjusted Operating Income is defined as net income before interest expense, other (expense) income, net, income tax expense, equity income, net of tax, restructuring, separation costs, asset impairments and pension charges. 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. The Company's 2019 outlook was determined using a consistent manner and methodology.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share: Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share, which are non-GAAP measures, are presented as supplemental measures of the Company's financial performance which management believes are useful to investors in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding U.S. 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 which may obscure underlying business results and trends.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income attributable to Delphi Technologies before restructuring and other special items, including the tax impact thereon. Adjusted Net Income per Share is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. Not all companies use identical calculations of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The Company's 2019 outlook was determined using a consistent manner and methodology.
