Goodyear Reports Second Quarter, First Half 2020 Results

AKRON, Ohio, July 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ: GT) today reported results for the second quarter and first half of 2020.

"Although our first half results were greatly affected by difficult industry conditions as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the decisive actions we took to safeguard our business helped mitigate the impact on our results," said Richard J. Kramer, chairman, chief executive officer and president.

"While we are encouraged to see industry demand gradually recovering in most major markets, our plans for the second half consider the challenges and uncertainties that remain. We continue to focus on the wellbeing of our associates, servicing our customers and supporting our brands while appropriately managing our costs and working capital," added Kramer.

"We are also committed to supporting the strong growth we are seeing in our e-commerce and mobile installation businesses.  These investments in distribution will strengthen our leadership position and support our long-term growth prospects as consumer buying behavior continues to evolve within the tire industry," said Kramer.

Goodyear's second quarter 2020 sales were $2.1 billion, down 41% from a year ago. The decline was driven by lower industry volume and reduced sales from other tire-related businesses. These factors were partially offset by improvements in price/mix.

Tire unit volumes totaled 20.4 million, down 45% from the prior year's period.  Industry demand during the second quarter was significantly affected by the actions governments, businesses and consumers took to slow the spread of COVID-19, with the greatest impact occurring in April and May. Replacement tire shipments declined 39%, reflecting the impact of lower consumer demand, temporary store closings and wholesale and retail customers reducing inventory levels. Original equipment unit volume decreased 62%, driven by reduced vehicle production, including the effects of global auto manufacturers temporarily suspending vehicle production.

Goodyear's second quarter 2020 net loss was $696 million ($2.97 per share) compared to net income of $54 million (23 cents per share) a year ago. The decrease was driven by a decline in segment operating income, a non-cash asset impairment charge and higher rationalization charges.

Second quarter 2020 adjusted net loss was $437 million ($1.87 per share), compared to adjusted net income of $58 million (25 cents per share) in 2019. Per share amounts are diluted.

The company reported a segment operating loss of $431 million in the second quarter of 2020, down $650 million from a year ago. The decline primarily reflects lower volume and reduced factory utilization. These factors were partially offset by lower SAG, driven by reductions in payroll and advertising expenses relating to actions taken as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Year-to-Date Results

Goodyear's sales for the first six months of 2020 were $5.2 billion, a 28% decline from the 2019 period, primarily due to lower volume and reduced sales from other tire-related businesses. These factors were partially offset by improvements in price/mix.

Tire unit volumes totaled 51.7 million, down 31% from 2019. Replacement tire shipments decreased 28%, reflecting lower industry demand. Original equipment volume declined 41%, driven by lower global vehicle production.

Goodyear's net loss was $1.3 billion for the first six months of 2020 ($5.62 per share) compared to a net loss of $7 million (3 cents per share) in the prior year's period. The first half of 2020 included several significant items, including a non-cash charge of $295 million related to a valuation allowance on certain deferred tax assets for foreign tax credits, a non-cash impairment charge of $182 million to reduce the carrying value of goodwill in the EMEA business, a non-cash asset impairment charge of $148 million to reduce the carrying value of an equity interest in TireHub, and rationalization charges of $108 million, primarily associated with the previously announced plan to permanently close a manufacturing facility in Gadsden, Alabama. Goodyear's net income for the comparable period in 2019 included rationalization charges of $107 million, primarily related to a plan to modernize two tire manufacturing facilities in Germany. Goodyear's adjusted net loss for the first six months was $575 million ($2.46 per share), compared to adjusted net income of $103 million (44 cents per share) in the prior year's period. Per share amounts are diluted.

The company reported a segment operating loss of $478 million for the first six months of 2020, down $887 million from a year ago. The decrease was primarily due to lower volume and reduced factory utilization. These factors were partially offset by lower SAG, driven by reductions in payroll and advertising expenses.

Asia Pacific's second quarter 2020 sales decreased 36% to $334 million, reflecting lower volume, partially offset by improvements in price/mix. Tire unit volume declined 36%. Original equipment unit volume declined 50%, driven by declines in India and China.  Replacement tire shipments decreased 26%, driven by lower industry demand.

Second quarter 2020 segment operating loss of $34 million was down $75 million from the prior year's quarter. The decline reflects lower unit volume and reduced factory utilization, reflecting lower sales and reductions in inventory. These factors were partially offset by lower SAG, driven by reductions in advertising and payroll expenses.

Phased Production Restart

The company completed a phased restart of production during the second quarter. All of the company's factories resumed production and none have experienced any COVID-19 related disruption following their restart. Production levels for the quarter were approximately 26 million units below the prior year, reflecting lower sales and actions taken to reduce inventories and conserve cash. Inventory units were approximately 8.5 million below the prior year's level at the end of June.

Production planning for the second half has been modified to focus on high customer service levels, while ensuring the company is able to continue to operate at lower inventory levels on an ongoing basis and to reduce its conversion cost per tire over time. 

Liquidity and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2020, the company had total liquidity of $3,944 million, including $1,006 million of cash and cash equivalents.  A portion of this liquidity will be used to repay the company's $282 million outstanding principal amount of 8.75% notes that mature in August.  In comparison, the company had $3,442 million in total liquidity, including $917 million of cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2019

During the second quarter, the company issued $800 million of senior notes. The company also benefited from a smaller than planned use of cash during the quarter, driven by improved working capital management. Cash used in operations and capital expenditures totaled $259 million and $152 million, respectively. The combined use of $411 million of cash was significantly less than the company's initial estimates.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (unaudited)
This earnings release presents Total Segment Operating Income (Loss) and Margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share (EPS), which are important financial measures for the company but are not financial measures defined by U.S. GAAP, and should not be construed as alternatives to corresponding financial measures presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Total Segment Operating Income (Loss) is the sum of the individual strategic business units' (SBUs') Segment Operating Income (Loss) as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Total Segment Operating Margin is Total Segment Operating Income (Loss) divided by Net Sales as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Management believes that Total Segment Operating Income (Loss) and Margin are useful because they represent the aggregate value of income created by the company's SBUs and exclude items not directly related to the SBUs for performance evaluation purposes. The most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure to Total Segment Operating Income (Loss) is Goodyear Net Income (Loss) and to Total Segment Operating Margin is Return on Sales (which is calculated by dividing Goodyear Net Income (Loss) by Net Sales).

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is Goodyear Net Income (Loss) as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP adjusted for certain significant items. Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share is the company's Adjusted Net Income (Loss) divided by Weighted Average Shares Outstanding-Diluted as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share are useful because they represent how management reviews the operating results of the company excluding the impacts of rationalizations, asset write-offs, accelerated depreciation, asset sales and certain other significant items.

It should be noted that other companies may calculate similarly-titled non-GAAP financial measures differently and, as a result, the measures presented herein may not be comparable to such similarly-titled measures reported by other companies.

See the tables below for reconciliations of historical Total Segment Operating Income (Loss) and Margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.
