GILLINGHAM, England & TROY, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Delphi Automotive PLC (NYS: DLPH) , a leading global vehicle components manufacturer, today reported first quarter 2013 revenues of $4.0 billion, a decrease of 1.7% from the prior year period, the result of continued weak business conditions in Europe, partially offset by the acquisition of the Motorized Vehicles Division ("MVL") from FCI Group. Adjusted for the impacts of currency exchange, commodity movements, acquisitions and divestitures, revenue decreased by 6% inthe first quarter.

The Company reported first quarter U.S. GAAP net income of $276 million and earnings of $0.88 per diluted share, compared to $342 million and $1.04 per diluted share in the prior year period. The current year quarterly U.S. GAAP results include special items consisting of restructuring-related charges, acquisition-related integration costs and debt retirement charges. Excluding these special items, the Company reported adjusted first quarter earnings of $336 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, compared to adjusted earnings of $346 million, or $1.05 per diluted share in the prior year period.

"Despite continued weakness in Europe, our industry-leading cost structure as well as our diverse mix of regional and customer revenues allowed us to deliver solid first quarter financial results, grow earnings per share, and increase shareholder value," said Rodney O'Neal, chief executive officer and president.

First Quarter 2013 Results

The Company reported first quarter 2013 revenue of $4.0 billion, a decrease of 6% compared to the first quarter of 2012, adjusting for currency exchange, commodity movements, acquisitions and divestitures. This reflects growth of 8% in Asia and 7% in South America, offset by declines in Europe and North America of 17% and 2%, respectively.

First quarter net income excluding restructuring, acquisition related integration costs, and losses on extinguishment of debt ("Adjusted Net Income"), totaled $336 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, which includes the favorable impacts of a lower effective tax rate and share repurchases. Adjusted Net Income in the prior year period was $346 million, or $1.05 per diluted share.

First quarter earnings before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, other income (expense), income tax expense, equity income, restructuring and acquisition integration costs ("Adjusted EBITDA") was $562 million, compared to $584 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 14.0% in the first quarter of 2013, compared with 14.3% in the prior year period. The reduction in Adjusted EBITDA reflects the continued volume reductions in Europe, partially offset by increased earnings from the acquisition of MVL.

First quarter earnings before interest expense, other income (expense), income tax expense, equity income, restructuring and acquisition integration costs ("Adjusted Operating Income") was $431 million, compared to $470 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Operating Income margin was 10.7% in the first quarter of 2013, compared with 11.5% in the prior year period.

Interest expense for the first quarter totaled $36 million, comparable to $35 million in the prior year period. Additionally, the first quarter of 2013 included a net loss on retirement of debt totaling $39 million.

Tax expense in the first quarter of 2013 was $37 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 11%, compared to $77 million, or an effective rate of 18%, in the prior year period. The improvement in 2013 primarily reflects the geographic mix of lower pretax earnings and tax planning initiatives.

The Company generated net cash flow from operating activities of $149 million in the first quarter of 2013, compared to $293 million in the prior year period, and as of March 31, 2013, had cash and cash equivalents of $0.8 billion and access to $1.5 billion in undrawn committed revolving bank facilities. Total debt outstanding as of March 31, 2013 was $2.5 billion.

Initiation of Regular Quarterly Cash Dividend

On February 26, 2013, Delphi's Board of Directors approved the initiation of dividend payments on its ordinary shares and declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.17 per ordinary share to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 15, 2013. On March 27, 2013, $53 million was paid to shareholders of record as of March 15, 2013.

Share Repurchase Program

In 2012, Delphi's Board of Directors authorized two share repurchase programs in the aggregate amount of $1.05 billion. During the first quarter of 2013 Delphi repurchased 2.85 million shares at an average price of $42.79 per share, which totaled approximately $122 million, bringing the total share repurchases to $525 million and leaving approximately $525 million available for future share repurchases. All repurchased shares were retired, and are reflected as a reduction of ordinary share capital for the par value of the shares, with the excess applied as reductions to additional paid-in capital and retained earnings.
