Shiloh Industries Inc. (NASDAQ:SHLO) reported weak bottom-line results for second-quarter fiscal 2018 (ended Apr 30, 2018). Its share price declined 5.1% yesterday, ending the trading session at $10.01.

The company’s adjusted earnings in the reported quarter were 24 cents per share, reflecting a decline of 33.3% from the year-ago tally of 36 cents.

In the quarter under review, Shiloh Industries’ net revenues were $297.3 million, reflecting growth of 8.9% (or $24.3 million) from the year-ago quarter. Of the total improvement, acquisitions contributed roughly $23.5 million while the rest was influenced by organic sales growth and negative impacts of divestitures.

On a geographical basis, revenues from the United States totaled $213.6 million. It contributed approximately 71.8% of net revenues. Operations from Europe generated revenues of $74 million, accounting for 24.9% of net revenues. Revenues from Rest of World totaled $9.8 million, representing 3.3% of net revenues.

Margins Weak on Higher Costs and Expenses

In the quarter under review, Shiloh Industries’ cost of sales increased 11% year over year to $265.8 million. It represented 89.4% of net revenues compared with 87.7% in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin declined 170 basis points (bps) year over year to 10.6%. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 2.2% year over year to $22.1 million, representing 7.4% of net revenues.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

Exiting the fiscal second quarter, Shiloh Industries’ cash and cash equivalents were $17.6 million, up 59.1% from $11.1 million at the previous quarter end. The company’s long-term debt grew 40.1% sequentially to $255.6 million. The company received $128 million from long-term borrowings while repaid roughly $55 million.

Outlook

In the quarters ahead, Shiloh Industries anticipates gaining from new business wins as well as efforts to capitalize from rise in demand for SUVs and trucks. Also, synergistic gains from acquired businesses — including Brabant Alucast Netherlands and Brabant Alucast Italy in March 2018 — as well as benefits from a new engineering lab in Michigan, facility manufacturing aluminum products in China and Tennessee-based magnesium die casting business will be advantageous.

For fiscal 2018 (ending October 2018), the company reaffirmed its adjusted EBITDA guidance of $73-$76 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin is anticipated to be 7-7.2%. Capital expenditure is predicted to be roughly 4-5% of revenues.

Will You Make a Fortune on the Shift to Electric Cars?

Here's another stock idea to consider. Much like petroleum 150 years ago, lithium power may soon shake the world, creating millionaires and reshaping geo-politics. Soon electric vehicles (EVs) may be cheaper than gas guzzlers. Some are already reaching 265 miles on a single charge.

With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, one company stands out as the #1 stock to buy according to Zacks research.

It's not the one you think.
