“Garrett delivered great performance in 2023, with a strong fourth quarter close achieving full-year performance above midpoint guidance across all financial metrics with record Net sales, a strong Net income and record Adjusted EBITDA,” said Garrett President and CEO, Olivier Rabiller. “We accomplished this while simplifying our capital structure, de-levering, and executing share repurchases, demonstrating our ability to generate and deploy cash in a wise and impactful way for our shareholders.”

“Importantly, we have strengthened our leadership position. During 2023, Garrett expanded its turbo offerings in hybrid and alternative fuel applications, winning two additional high-volume applications for electric compressors and launching our first Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine (“H2ICE”) application for commercial vehicles. At the same time, we are building momentum with our zero emission technologies through differentiated breakthrough solutions for electric vehicles in high-speed powertrain, game changing centrifugal E-Cooling compressors, and the broadest range of fuel cell compressors in the industry. We remain committed to our target of $1 billion of revenue from zero emission technologies by 2030.”

“Looking ahead to 2024, we expect a flat to down environment for the industry and to deliver financial performance in line with 2023 all while growing our funding for innovation and zero emissions products. This reaffirms Garrett’s commitment to perform in stable and challenging times. Additionally, today we are announcing the authorization of a new share repurchase program of $350 million for 2024 supported by our continued strong cash flow generation.”

Results of Operations

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2023 were $945 million, representing an increase of 5% (including a favorable impact of $19 million or 2% due to foreign currency translation) compared with $898 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. This increase was driven by strong ramp ups in gasoline applications in China and North America, an increase in diesel production volumes on incumbent platforms primarily in Europe and favorable foreign currency translational impact. These increases were partially offset by demand softness for commercial vehicle applications due to global macroeconomic conditions as interest rates rose across the globe.

Cost of goods sold for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $756 million compared with $737 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, primarily driven by higher sales volumes and foreign currency impacts which contributed to increases of $55 million and $13 million, respectively. Research and Development (“R&D”) costs also increased $2 million, reflecting Garrett’s continued investment in new technologies. These increases were partially offset by lower costs from $26 million of higher productivity net of labor inflation and repositioning costs, $13 million of favorable product mix and $12 million of commodity and transportation deflation.

Gross profit totaled $189 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 as compared to $161 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, with a gross profit percentage for the fourth quarter of 2023 of 20.0% as compared to 17.9% in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase in gross profit was primarily driven by $33 million of higher productivity net of labor inflation and repositioning costs, $20 million from higher sales volumes, $12 million of lower costs due to deflation, and $6 million of favorable foreign currency impacts. These increases in gross profit were partially offset by $33 million of unfavorable impacts from product mix due to growth in small-engine gasoline applications, $8 million of decreased pricing net of inflation recovery from customer pass-through agreements, and $2 million of higher R&D costs as discussed above.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2023 increased to $69 million from $52 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase compared with the prior year was mainly due to $4 million of higher incentive compensation, $6 million of higher repositioning costs, $4 million of higher professional service expenses, and $3 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation and transactional impacts.

Interest expense in the fourth quarter of 2023 was $55 million as compared to $11 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily driven by $19 million of higher interest expense from our new $700 million term loan B (the “2023 Dollar Term Facility”) and increased market interest rates, as well as $23 million of unfavorable impacts from the marked-to market remeasurement on our interest rate swap contracts.

Non-operating income for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $5 million as compared to $38 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, driven by a $26 million decrease in the non-service components of net periodic pension benefits and $8 million of unfavorable foreign currency transactional impacts.

Tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $16 million as compared to $23 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, mainly driven by current year tax benefits in Switzerland and settlements related to prior year taxes in certain jurisdictions.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $52 million as compared to $112 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 primarily due to $21 million of higher interest expense, $33 million of lower non-operating income and $23 million unfavorable impacts from marked-to-market remeasurement of interest derivatives, partially offset by $28 million of higher gross profit, as discussed above.

Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $135 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 as compared to $137 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, primarily due to a decrease of $9 million in net income excluding non-cash charges, and $38 million from changes in other assets and liabilities, partially offset by an increase of $45 million from changes in working capital.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $145 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 as compared to $140 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase was mainly due to higher volumes primarily from gasoline and diesel, variable and fixed cost productivity, and commodity and transportation deflation. These increases were partially offset by pricing net of inflation pass-through and unfavorable foreign exchange impact.

Adjusted free cash flow, which excludes capital structure transformation expenses and cash paid for repositioning and factoring costs, was $137 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 as compared to $132 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily driven by $46 million of working capital contribution (net of factoring) and $5 million of higher adjusted EBITDA. This improvement was partially offset by $18 million in higher cash taxes due to timing, $16 million of higher cash paid for interest due to the 2023 Dollar Term Facility and increased interest rates, and $13 million of additional capital expenditures as compared to prior year.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of December 31, 2023, Garrett had $829 million in available liquidity, including $259 million in cash and cash equivalents and $570 million of undrawn commitments under its revolving credit facility. As of December 31, 2022, Garrett had $721 million in available liquidity, including $246 million in cash and cash equivalents and $475 million undrawn commitments under its revolving credit facility.

As of December 31, 2023, total principal amount of debt outstanding amounted to $1,696 million, up from $1,186 million as of December 31, 2022, primarily due to the 2023 Dollar Term Facility and foreign exchange impacts.

During the fourth quarter of 2023, we repurchased $35 million of common stock under our authorized share repurchase program. For the full year 2023, total repurchases of common stock equaled $213 million at an average price of $7.57 per share. Our share repurchase program expired as of December 31, 2023.

On February 13, 2024, the Board of Directors authorized a new $350 million share repurchase program valid until December 31, 2024. The Company may repurchase shares from time to time under the program through various methods, including in open market transactions, block trades, privately negotiated transactions, and otherwise. The timing, as well as the number and value of shares repurchased under the program, will depend on a variety of factors. The Company is not obligated to purchase any shares under the repurchase program, and the program may be suspended, modified, or discontinued at any time without prior notice.
