(NYSE: PHIN), a leader in premium fuel systems, electrical systems, and aftermarket products, today reported its second quarter 2023 results and reaffirmed its full-year outlook. PHINIA operated as part of BorgWarner Inc. for the entire second quarter of 2023 prior to the spin-off on July 3rd, and the historical financial measures presented in this release were derived from BorgWarner Inc.’s accounting records and are presented on a carve-out basis.

Second Quarter Highlights:
Sales growth of 11.4% year-over-year to $887 million.
Operating income of $56 million and adjusted operating income of $94 million, resulting in an operating margin of 6.3% and an adjusted operating margin of 10.6%, a year-over-year improvement of 10 bps and 180 bps, respectively. Margins benefited from resolution of customer commodity and inflationary settlements with retro effect to the beginning of the year. Corporate cost allocations were also lower in Q2 versus prior year.
Net earnings of $35 million with net margin of 3.9% and adjusted EBITDA of $130 million with adjusted EBITDA margin of 14.7%, a 140 bps year-over-year improvement.

PHINIA has been selected as the main partner to a US Department of Energy (“DOE”) project announced on May 19, 2023, and funded by the DOE, to advance research, development, and implementation of technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The project will feature PHINIA’s new hydrogen medium pressure, direct injection fuel system technology.

PHINIA, recently achieved a significant business win by securing a contract to supply Powertrain Domain Control Units (PDCUs) to a leading Asian OEM.

PHINIA secured another business win by being awarded the contract to supply starter motors for medium duty applications to a large US OEM, supporting their major engine program.

Brady Ericson, President, and Chief Executive Officer of PHINIA commented: "Our Q2 results reflect a positive trend and we expect to maintain this momentum moving forward. Now that the spin-off is complete, PHINIA is a more focused organization, better able to invest in and grow our business, and increase shareholder value by leveraging our core technologies and competencies. We are focused on growing our commercial vehicle and independent aftermarket businesses, which will benefit from the transition to carbon-neutral and carbon-free fuels. With these strategic initiatives, alongside our long-standing partnerships with world-leading OEMs, we are confident we will find multiple avenues for sustainable profitable growth."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains information about PHINIA’s financial results that is not presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. The provision of these comparable GAAP financial measures for 2023 is not intended to indicate that PHINIA is explicitly or implicitly providing projections on those GAAP financial measures, and actual results for such measures are likely to vary from those presented. The reconciliations include all information reasonably available to the Company at the date of this press release and the adjustments that management can reasonably predict.

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to management, investors, and banking institutions in their analysis of the Company's business and operating performance. Management also uses this information for operational planning and decision-making purposes.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not and should not be considered a substitute for any GAAP measure. Additionally, because not all companies use identical calculations, the non-GAAP financial measures as presented by PHINIA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

A reconciliation of each of projected Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which are forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is not provided because the Company is unable to provide such reconciliation without unreasonable effort. The inability to provide each reconciliation is due to the unpredictability of the amounts and timing of events affecting the items we exclude from the non-GAAP measure.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales.

Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Operating Margin
The Company defines adjusted operating income as operating income adjusted to exclude the impact of restructuring expense, merger, acquisition and divestiture expense, intangible asset amortization expense, impairment charges, other net expenses, and other gains and losses not reflective of the Company’s ongoing operations. Adjusted operating margin is defined as adjusted operating income divided by net sales.
