Cooper-Standard Holdings Inc. (NYSE:CPS) reported adjusted loss of $1.32 per share in fourth-quarter 2019, wider than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of 59 cents, mainly due to lower revenues across all segments. The year-ago quarter’s profit was $1.47 per share.

In the fourth quarter, the company generated revenues of $726 million, lower than the year-ago figure of $872 million. This downside mainly resulted from the UAW work stoppage in the United States and lower-than-planned volumes on certain vehicle programs. However, the revenue figure topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $694 million.

During the reported quarter, adjusted net loss was $22.3 million as against the net income of $26.4 million recorded in the year-ago period. Adjusted EBITDA declined to $25.7 million from the $75.7 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2018.
