Key Highlights

  • Sales of $2.3 billion, an increase of $337 million
  • Net income attributable to Dana of $71 million, an increase of $13 million
  • Diluted EPS of $0.48, an increase of $0.08
  • Adjusted net income attributable to Dana of $97 million, an increase of $29 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $234 million, margin of 10.3 percent of sales
  • Diluted adjusted EPS of $0.66
  • Operating cash flow of $27 million
  • Acquisition of Pi Innovo LLC, further enhances e-Propulsion software, controls, and electronics capabilities

Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2021.

"Dana realized higher sales of $2.3 billion in the first quarter as a result of continued strength in the light-truck market, as well as growth in both the commercial-vehicle and off-highway markets," said James Kamsickas, Dana chairman and CEO.

"While our end-markets have recovered from last year's shutdowns, higher costs related to supply-chain disruptions and shipping constraints continue to challenge the mobility industry. Our established multi-end-market presence tempers these outside pressures as we continue to execute our enterprise strategy, launch our significant new business backlog, and focus on strengthening our vehicle electrification position."

First-quarter 2021 Financial Results
Sales for the first quarter of 2021 totaled $2.26 billion, compared with $1.93 billion in the same period of 2020, representing a $337 million improvement driven by strong customer demand and the conversion of sales backlog. 

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2021 was $234 million, compared with $205 million for the same period in 2020.  Profit conversion on higher sales in the first quarter of 2021 was tempered by increased raw material and supply chain constraints.

Adjusted net income attributable to Dana and diluted adjusted earnings per share were $97 million and $0.66 for the first quarter of 2021, $29 million and $0.19 higher than the prior year due to the conversion of higher market demand in this year's first quarter.

Operating cash flow in the first quarter of 2021 was $27 million, compared with a use of $51 million in the same period of 2020. 

Adjusted free cash flow was a use of $26 million, compared with a use of $114 million in the first quarter of 2020.  Adjusted free cash flow in this year's first quarter benefited from higher earnings and lower working capital requirements.

"As markets continue to recover from the challenges of the global pandemic, strong first-quarter sales provide the conviction to increase our full-year guidance as we accelerate the achievement of our long-term growth targets," said Jonathan Collins, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Dana.

Revised 2021 Financial Targets1

  • Sales of $8.50 to $9.00 billion;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $920 million to $1.0 billion, an implied adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 11 percent at the midpoint of the range;
  • Diluted adjusted EPS of $2.10 to $2.60;
  • Operating cash flow of approximately 7 to 8 percent of sales; and
  • Adjusted free cash flow of approximately 3 to 3.5 percent of sales.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which we have defined as net income (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, equity grant expense, restructuring expense, non-service cost components of pension and other postretirement benefit costs and other adjustments not related to our core operations (gain/loss on debt extinguishment, pension settlements, divestitures, impairment, etc.). Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of our ability to maintain and continue to invest in our operations and provide shareholder returns. We use adjusted EBITDA in assessing the effectiveness of our business strategies, evaluating and pricing potential acquisitions and as a factor in making incentive compensation decisions. In addition to its use by management, we also believe adjusted EBITDA is a measure widely used by securities analysts, investors and others to evaluate financial performance of our company relative to other Tier 1 automotive suppliers. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for earnings (loss) before income taxes, net income (loss) or other results reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to the parent company is a non-GAAP financial measure which we have defined as net income (loss) attributable to the parent company, excluding any discrete income tax items, restructuring charges, amortization expense and other adjustments not related to our core operations (as used in adjusted EBITDA), net of any associated income tax effects. This measure is considered useful for purposes of providing investors, analysts and other interested parties with an indicator of ongoing financial performance that provides enhanced comparability to net income attributable to the parent company reported by other companies. Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to the parent company is neither intended to represent nor be an alternative measure to net income (loss) attributable to the parent company reported in accordance with GAAP.

Diluted adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure which we have defined as adjusted net income (loss) attributable to the parent company divided by adjusted diluted shares.  We define adjusted diluted shares as diluted shares as determined in accordance with GAAP based on adjusted net income (loss) attributable to the parent company.  This measure is considered useful for purposes of providing investors, analysts and other interested parties with an indicator of ongoing financial performance that provides enhanced comparability to EPS reported by other companies.  Diluted adjusted EPS is neither intended to represent nor be an alternative measure to diluted EPS reported in accordance with GAAP.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which we have defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment.  Adjusted free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which we have defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities excluding discretionary pension contributions less purchases of property, plant and equipment.  We believe these measures are useful to investors in evaluating the operational cash flow of the company inclusive of the spending required to maintain the operations.  Free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow are not intended to represent nor be an alternative to the measure of net cash provided by (used in) operating activities reported in accordance with GAAP.  Free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

We have not provided reconciliations of our adjusted EBITDA and diluted adjusted EPS outlook to the most comparable GAAP measures of net income and diluted EPS. Providing net income and diluted EPS guidance is potentially misleading and not practical given the difficulty of projecting event-driven transactional and other non-core operating items that are included in net income and diluted EPS, including restructuring actions, asset impairments, and income tax valuation adjustments. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures with the most comparable GAAP measures for historical periods are indicative of the reconciliations that will be prepared upon completion of the periods covered by the non-GAAP guidance. Please reference the "Non-GAAP Financial Information" accompanying our quarterly earnings conference call presentations on our website at www.dana.com/investors for our GAAP results and the reconciliations of these measures, were used, to the comparable GAAP measures.
