WARREN, Ohio, May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Improved Sales in Europe and North America Offset by Brazilian Sales Reduction
  • Brazilian Real and Argentine Peso Currency Movements Unfavorably Affect Results
  • Aggressive Cost Actions Taken to Offset Economic Downturn in Brazil
  • Control Devices and Electronics Continue to Perform Well

Stoneridge, Inc. (NYSE: SRI) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

First-quarter 2014 net sales were $236.4 million, an increase of $0.7 million, or 0.3%, compared with $235.7 million for the first quarter of 2013. The increase in the current quarter's net sales was primarily due to increased sales to European commercial vehicle customers in the Company's Electronics business segment and increased sales to North American automotive customers in the Company's Control Devices segment. The Company's Control Devices segment recorded an increase in sales of $5.4 million, or 7.5%, and the Electronics segment recorded a $5.6 million, or 12.6%, increase compared with the first quarter of 2013.  The increases reflect continued strength in these markets.  These increases were offset by lower sales in Brazil and Argentina from the Company's PST business segment which experienced a decrease of $8.5 million, or 20.1%, compared with the first quarter of 2013, of which $6.3 million of the reduction was due to the devaluation of the Brazilian Real to the US Dollar. During the first quarter of 2014, the Brazilian Real devalued by 18.0% against the US Dollar compared with the first quarter of 2013.

Net income for the first quarter of 2014 was $1.5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with net income of $4.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2013.  The decrease in net income was primarily due to lower sales by PST across all of its product lines sold in Brazil and a $1.6 million unfavorable currency loss in Brazil which was caused by a devaluation of the Argentine Peso compared with the Brazilian Real, most of which occurred in January of 2014. 

As of March 31, 2014, Stoneridge's consolidated cash position was $48.4 million, a decrease of $14.4 million from December 31, 2013. The change in the cash balance was primarily the result of seasonal increases to trade working capital.

John Corey, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our Electronics and Control Devices segments continued to perform well, and Wiring has begun to stabilize.  However, PST's sales were lower as the Brazilian economy has not improved and currency impacts were negative, both of which affected the sales mostly in our audio and aftermarket products."

Corey continued, "As a result of PST's performance during the first quarter of 2014 and continued expected economic weakness, our management team has been executing an aggressive cost reduction program to reduce headcount, lower selling and administrative expenses, reduce overhead costs and source components from Asia directly from design houses to lower raw material costs. We expect sales and earnings in our Electronics and Control Devices segments will continue to be stable platforms for future growth, and we expect a continued recovery in the Wiring business performance."
