First quarter 2018 results

The company reported first quarter 2018 revenue of $1.3 billion, an increase of 11 percent from the prior year period. Adjusted for currency exchange and certain aftermarket original equipment service revenue retained by the former parent, revenue increased by 5 percent during the period. This reflects growth of 4 percent in Powertrain Systems and 1 percent in Delphi Technologies Aftermarket. It also reflects growth of 11 percent in Asia, 6 percent in North America, 6 percent in South America and relatively flat performance in Europe.

The company reported first quarter 2018 U.S. GAAP net income of $98 million and net income of $1.10 per diluted share, compared to $103 million and $1.16 per diluted share in the prior year period. First quarter Adjusted net income totaled $116 million, or $1.30 per diluted share, which compares to Adjusted net income in the prior year period of $116 million, or $1.31 per diluted share.

First quarter U.S. GAAP operating income was $138 million, compared to $148 million in the prior year period. Adjusted operating income was $159 million, compared to $162 million in the prior year period. Adjusted operating income margin in the first quarter of 2018 was 12.3 percent, compared to 13.9 percent in the prior year period. The decline was primarily due to the absence of a commercial settlement that benefited the first quarter of 2017 and, to a lesser degree, spin-related costs associated with becoming a stand-alone public company. Depreciation and amortization expense (including asset impairment charges) totaled $50 million in the first quarter as compared to $48 million in the prior year period.
