UCI Holdings Limited Reports Results of Operations for First Quarter 2013

LAKE FOREST, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- UCI Holdings Limited, the parent company of UCI International, Inc. ("UCI"), today announced UCI's results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. Net sales of $245.8 million decreased from the $261.6 million reported for the first quarter of 2012. The company, a leading manufacturer of vehicle replacement parts, reported that net sales increased in the traditional, OES (new car dealer service) and OEM (original equipment manufacturer) channels, and declined in the retail and heavy duty channels. Net sales for the first quarter of 2013 also included $19.6 million in related party sales to FRAM Group, compared to $6.0 million for the first quarter of 2012.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, as adjusted, was $25.5 million for the first quarter of 2013, compared to $45.4 million in the year-ago quarter. The reconciliation of net income to adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure of financial performance, is set forth in Schedule A.


Net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $5.1 million, including $4.0 million, net of tax, in special items, consisting primarily of business optimization costs, costs related to implementation of our cost sharing and manufacturing arrangements with FRAM Group and restructuring costs. Net income for the first quarter of 2012 was $6.9 million, including $3.8 million, net of tax, in special items, consisting primarily of costs related to implementation of our cost sharing and manufacturing arrangements with FRAM Group, business optimization costs, costs of defending class action litigation and costs of obtaining new business.

"General economic conditions, as well as weather conditions and continued general slowness in the aftermarket affected our revenue in the first quarter," said Bruce Zorich, Chief Executive Officer of UCI.

As of March 31, 2013, the company's cash on hand was $69.8 million and total debt was $692.6 million.

Reconciliation of EBITDA to Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA, a measure used by our strategic owner to measure operating performance, is defined as net income (loss) for the period plus income tax expense (benefit), net interest expense, depreciation expense of property, plant and equipment and amortization expense of identifiable intangible assets. Adjusted EBITDA presented herein is also a financial measure used by our strategic owner to measure operating performance. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is used in the calculation of compliance with certain covenants in the Senior Secured Credit Facilities and the indenture governing the Senior Notes. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA adjusted to exclude items of a significant or unusual nature that cannot be attributed to ordinary business activities, such as business optimization costs, restructuring costs and costs related to implementation of cost sharing arrangements with FRAM Group. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not presentations in accordance with GAAP, or measures of our financial condition, liquidity or profitability and should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss), operating profit or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as a substitute for cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of free cash flow, as they do not take into account certain items such as interest and principal payments on our indebtedness, working capital needs, tax payments and capital expenditures. We believe that the inclusion of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about our operating performance and to provide a measure of operating results unaffected by differences in capital structures, capital investment cycles and ages of related assets among otherwise comparable companies. We additionally believe that issuers of high yield debt securities also present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because investors, analysts and rating agencies consider these measures useful. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is used to determine our compliance with certain covenants, including the fixed charge coverage ratio used for purposes of debt incurrence under the indenture governing the Senior Notes and certain other agreements governing our indebtedness. Because not all companies calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA identically, this presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.
