AKRON, Ohio, Oct. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ: GT) today reported results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2020.

"Our results reflect increasing momentum as the global tire industry recovered more quickly than we expected during the quarter, led by the Americas," said Richard J. Kramer, chairman, chief executive officer and president. "We are taking every opportunity to continue building our business for the long term, while generating significant cost savings and free cash flow," added Kramer.

Goodyear's third quarter 2020 sales were $3.5 billion, down 9% from a year ago. The decline was driven by lower volume, unfavorable foreign currency translation and reduced sales from other tire-related businesses. These factors were partially offset by improvements in price/mix.

Tire unit volumes totaled 36.6 million, down 9% from the prior year's period. Industry demand during the quarter was affected by the continued economic disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Replacement tire shipments declined 9%, reflecting the impact of lower consumer demand, temporary third-party retail store closings in the U.S., and actions taken to align European distribution. Original equipment unit volume decreased 9%, driven by reduced vehicle production.

Goodyear's third quarter 2020 net loss was $2 million (1 cent per share) compared to net income of $88 million (38 cents per share) a year ago. The decrease was driven by a decline in segment operating income. Third quarter 2020 adjusted net income was $24 million (10 cents per share), compared to adjusted net income of $105 million (45 cents per share) in 2019. Per share amounts are diluted.

The company reported segment operating income of $162 million in the third quarter of 2020, down $132 million from a year ago. The decline primarily reflects lower volume, reduced factory utilization and lower earnings from other tire-related businesses. These factors were partially offset by the benefits of cost saving actions, including ongoing rationalization plans, and improved price/mix.  

Year-to-Date Results

Goodyear's sales for the first nine months of 2020 were $8.7 billion, a 21% decline from the 2019 period, driven by lower volume, reduced sales from other tire-related businesses and unfavorable foreign currency translation. These factors were partially offset by improvements in price/mix.

Tire unit volumes totaled 88.3 million, down 24% from 2019. Replacement tire shipments decreased 21%, primarily reflecting lower industry demand. Original equipment volume declined 31%, driven by lower global vehicle production.

Goodyear's net loss was $1.3 billion for the first nine months of 2020 ($5.62 per share) compared to net income of $81 million (35 cents per share) in the prior year's period. The first nine months 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 impairment charge of $148 million to reduce the carrying value of an equity interest in TireHub, and rationalization charges of $133 million, primarily associated with the closure of a manufacturing facility in Gadsden, Alabama. Goodyear's net income for the comparable period in 2019 included rationalization charges of $128 million, primarily related to a plan to modernize two tire manufacturing facilities in Germany. Goodyear's adjusted net loss for the first nine months of 2020 was $550 million ($2.35 per share), compared to adjusted net income of $208 million (89 cents per share) in the prior year's period. Per share amounts are diluted.

The company reported a segment operating loss of $316 million for the first nine months of 2020, down $1.0 billion from a year ago. The decrease was primarily due to lower volume, reduced factory utilization and lower earnings from other tire-related businesses. These factors were partially offset by lower SAG, driven by reduced payroll and advertising expenses, and the benefits of cost saving actions, including ongoing rationalization plans.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

See the note at the end of this release for further explanation and reconciliation tables for Segment Operating Income (Loss) and Margin; Adjusted Net Income (Loss); and Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) per Share, reflecting the impact of certain significant items on the 2020 and 2019 periods.

Americas' third quarter 2020 sales of $1.8 billion were 11% lower than in the previous year, driven by lower volume, unfavorable foreign currency translation and reduced sales from other tire-related businesses. These factors were partially offset by improvements in price/mix. Tire unit volume declined 10%. Replacement tire shipments decreased 12%, reflecting weak retail demand and temporary third-party retail store closings in the U.S. Original equipment unit volume was essentially flat, as the impact of weak industry demand in Brazil offset a 7% increase in U.S. consumer OE shipments.

Third quarter 2020 operating income of $106 million was down $69 million from the prior year's quarter. The decline was driven by reduced factory utilization and lower volume. These factors were partially offset by the benefits of cost saving actions, lower SAG and improved price/mix.

Europe, Middle East and Africa's third quarter 2020 sales decreased 4% from last year to $1.2 billion due to lower volume, partially offset by improvements in price/mix. Tire unit volume decreased 9%. Replacement tire shipments fell 8%, driven by lower industry demand and the impact of the company's previously announced initiative to align distribution in Europe. Original equipment unit volume decreased 11%, driven by lower vehicle production.

Third quarter 2020 segment operating income of $22 million was down $44 million from the prior year's quarter, driven by the impact of lower volume, including reduced factory utilization, partially offset by lower raw material costs and improved price/mix.

Asia Pacific's third quarter 2020 sales decreased 11% to $486 million, driven by lower volume. Tire unit volume declined 9%. Original equipment unit volume declined 16%, driven by China and India. Replacement tire shipments decreased 4%, driven by lower industry demand in Japan.  In China, consumer replacement volume set a new record, increasing 19% over the prior year.   

Third quarter 2020 segment operating income of $34 million was down $19 million from the prior year's quarter. The decline primarily reflects lower unit volume, unfavorable price/mix and reduced factory utilization. These factors were partially offset by lower raw material costs and lower SAG.

Cash Flow and Liquidity

The company delivered strong cash flow during the third quarter, as it benefited from improved working capital and stronger-than-planned industry demand. Cash generated through operating activities totaled $581 million and capital expenditures of $124 million were down from $160 million in 2019. In August, the company repaid its $282 million 8.75% senior notes at maturity. 

As of Sept. 30, 2020, the company had total liquidity of $4.2 billion, including $1.1 billion of cash and cash equivalents. In comparison, the company had $3.9 billion and $3.4 billion in total liquidity at June 30, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2019, respectively.

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 (loss) 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 non-cash impairment charges, 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.
