Third Quarter 2019 Results
Third quarter 2019 revenues were $225.4M contrast to $225.0M in the previous year period, a raise of 0.2%. The increase in revenues period-over-period reflects higher heavy- and medium-duty truck production in North America as well as $2.5M of additional revenue from the FSE Acquisition, partially offset by a production decrease in the Asia Pacific construction equipment market. Foreign currency translation adversely influenced third quarter 2019 revenues by $2.1M, or by 0.9% when contrast to the previous year period.
Operating income for the third quarter 2019 was $13.2M contrast to $16.2M in the previous year period. The decrease in operating income was due primarily to inflationary pressure on material and labor costs, and a raise in selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses. Cost control and cost recovery actions reduced the impact on gross profit of these cost pressures. A new statutorily higher minimum wage in Mexico affecting the region encompassing our wire harness facility in Agua Prieta, Mexico (the “Border Minimum Wage”), a troubled supplier and costs associated with manufacturing investments adversely influenced results in the third quarter of 2019 by about $1.1M. Regarding the increase in SG&A expenses, the third quarter of 2019 included $0.9M in one-time costs associated with the FSE Acquisition. In addition, the planned reorganization of the Company to, among other things, develop a platform from which to pursue business and corporate development activities gave rise to an approximate $0.7M increase in costs in the quarter contrast to the previous year period.
Interest and other expense were $3.8M and $3.4M for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The increase is primarily a result of the mark-to-market impact on our interest rate swap contracts, partially offset by lower interest expense.
Net income was $8.5M for the third quarter 2019, or $0.28 per diluted share, contrast to net income of $12.6M in the previous year period, or $0.41 per diluted share.
At September 30, 2019, the Company had liquidity of $109.2M: $38.7M of cash and $70.5M of availability from our asset-based revolver. There were no borrowings on our asset-based revolver at September 30, 2019.
Third Quarter 2019 Results
Revenues for the Electrical Systems Section in the third quarter 2019 were $131.4M contrast to $128.2M for the previous year period, a raise of 2.5%, due primarily to revenues from the FSE Acquisition in the quarter. Foreign currency translation adversely influenced third quarter 2019 revenue by $0.7M, or by 0.5% when contrast to the previous year period.
Operating income for the third quarter 2019 was $14.6M contrast to operating income of $14.3M in the previous year period. The increase in operating income period over period is primarily attributable to higher revenues partially offset by the impact of the Border Minimum Wage, a troubled supplier and costs associated with establishing additional manufacturing capacity. The net impact of the Border Minimum Wage on the third quarter of 2019 was about $0.2M. A number of actions, including price adjustments on certain products, are underway to reduce the impact of the law. A troubled supplier adversely influenced costs in the third quarter of 2019 by about $0.6M. Costs associated with manufacturing investments in our global wire harness and North American trim businesses adversely influenced third quarter results by about $0.3M. SG&A expenses increased for the three months ended September 30, 2019 contrast to the three months ended September 30, 2018 due primarily to spending on planned growth initiatives.
