DELPHI AUTOMOTIVE PLC
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)
General and basis of presentation—“Delphi” and the “Company” refer to Delphi Automotive PLC, a public limited company which was formed under the laws of Jersey on May 19, 2011, together with its subsidiaries, including Delphi Automotive LLP, a limited liability partnership incorporated under the laws of England and Wales which was formed on August 19, 2009 for the purpose of acquiring certain assets of the former Delphi Corporation, and became a subsidiary of Delphi Automotive PLC in connection with the completion of the Company’s initial public offering on November 22, 2011. The former Delphi Corporation (now known as DPH Holdings Corp. (“DPHH”)) and, as the context may require, its subsidiaries and affiliates, are referred to herein as the “Predecessor”. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in this report should be read in conjunction with Delphi’s 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Nature of operations—Delphi is a leading global vehicle components manufacturer and provides electrical and electronic, powertrain, safety and thermal technology solutions to the global automotive and commercial vehicle markets. Delphi operates manufacturing facilities and technical centers utilizing a regional service model that enables the Company to efficiently and effectively serve its global customers from low cost countries. In line with the growth in emerging markets, Delphi has been increasing its focus on these markets, particularly in China, where the Company has a major manufacturing base and strong customer relationships.
Acquisition and acquisition accounting—On October 6, 2009 (the “Acquisition Date”), Delphi acquired the businesses (other than the global steering business and the manufacturing facilities in the United States (“U.S.”) in which the hourly employees are represented by the International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America) of the Predecessor (the “Acquisition”). In accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification (“FASB ASC”) 805, Business Combinations, as of the Acquisition Date, the Company recognized and measured the fair value of the identifiable assets acquired and the liabilities assumed from the Predecessor.
2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Consolidation—The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Delphi and U.S. and non-U.S. subsidiaries in which Delphi holds a controlling financial or management interest and variable interest entities of which Delphi has determined that it is the primary beneficiary. Delphi’s share of the earnings or losses of non-controlled affiliates, over which Delphi exercises significant influence (generally a 20% to 50% ownership interest), is included in the consolidated operating results using the equity method of accounting. All adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring items, which are necessary for a fair presentation, have been included. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected from any other interim period or for the full year and may not necessarily reflect the consolidated results of operations, financial position and cash flows of Delphi in the future. All significant intercompany transactions and balances between consolidated Delphi businesses have been eliminated.
During the six months ended June 30, 2012, Delphi received a dividend of $62 million from one of its equity method investments. The dividend was recognized as a reduction to the investment with $25 million representing a return on investment included in cash flows from operating activities and $37 million representing a return of capital investment and included in cash flows from investing activities.
Use of estimates—Preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported therein. Generally, matters subject to estimation and judgment include amounts related to accounts receivable realization, inventory obsolescence, asset impairments, useful lives of intangible and fixed assets, deferred tax asset valuation allowances, income taxes, pension benefit plan assumptions, accruals related to litigation, warranty costs, environmental remediation costs, worker’s compensation accruals and healthcare accruals. Due to the inherent uncertainty involved in making estimates, actual results reported in future periods may be based upon amounts that differ from those estimates.
Membership interests—At the Acquisition Date, the outstanding common stock of the Predecessor was canceled and membership interests in Delphi Automotive LLP were issued to Delphi’s owners. On March 31, 2011, all of the outstanding Class A and Class C membership interests held by General Motors Company (“GM”) and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (“PBGC”) were redeemed for approximately $4.4 billion.
In conjunction with the completion of the initial public offering on November 22, 2011 of 24,078,827 ordinary shares by the selling shareholders for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $530 million, all of the outstanding equity of Delphi Automotive LLP was exchanged for 328,244,510 ordinary shares, par value $0.01 in Delphi Automotive PLC. As a result,
Delphi Automotive LLP became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delphi Automotive PLC. Delphi did not receive any proceeds from this offering.
Prior to the initial public offering, total membership interests and net income were allocated among the respective classes based on the cumulative distribution provisions of the Fourth Amended and Restated Limited Liability Partnership Agreement of Delphi Automotive LLP (the “Fourth LLP Agreement”). Refer to Note 12. Shareholders’ Equity and Net Income Per Share for additional information.
Net income per share—Basic net income per share is computed by dividing net income attributable to Delphi by the weighted–average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share reflects the weighted average dilutive impact of all potentially dilutive securities from the date of issuance and is computed using the treasury stock method by dividing net income attributable to Delphi by the diluted weighted-average number of ordinary shares outstanding. See Note 12. Shareholders’ Equity and Net Income Per Share for additional information including the calculation of basic and diluted net income per share.
Cash and cash equivalents—Cash and cash equivalents are defined as short-term, highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less.
Intangible assets—Intangible assets were $552 million and $596 million as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. In general, definite-lived intangible assets are being amortized over their useful lives, normally 6-20 years. Costs to renew or extend the term of acquired intangible assets are recognized as expense as incurred. Amortization expense was $19 million and $40 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and $19 million and $37 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.
Customer concentrations—Sales to GM were approximately 18% and 20% of our total net sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Accounts and other receivables due from GM were $452 million and $382 million as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.
Recently issued accounting pronouncements—The FASB amended ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements,” with ASU 2011-04, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820) - Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs.” This update provides converged guidance on how to measure fair value, which is largely consistent with existing U.S. GAAP. This update also requires additional fair value measurement disclosures. The provisions of this update were effective as of January 1, 2012. The effects of adoption were not significant.
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost, determined on a first-in, first-out basis, or market, including direct material costs and direct and indirect manufacturing costs. A summary of inventories is shown below:
Other current assets consisted of the following:
Other long-term assets consisted of the following:
Accrued liabilities consisted of the following:
Other long-term liabilities consisted of the following:
6. WARRANTY OBLIGATIONS
Expected warranty costs for products sold are recognized principally at the time of sale of the product based on estimates of the amount that will eventually be required to settle such obligations. These accruals are based on factors such as past experience, production changes, industry developments and various other considerations. These estimates are adjusted from time to time based on facts and circumstances that impact the status of existing claims. Delphi has recognized its best estimate for its total aggregate warranty reserves across all of its operating segments as of June 30, 2012. The estimated reasonably possible amounts to ultimately resolve all matters are not materially different from the recorded reserves as of June 30, 2012.
The table below summarizes the activity in the product warranty liability for the six months ended June 30, 2012:
In March 2011, Delphi reached a settlement with its customer related to warranty claims on certain components supplied by Delphi’s Powertrain segment and reflected a change in its previous estimate of probable loss as a result of the settlement agreement by recognizing $76 million of warranty expense in cost of sales. This adjustment resulted in a corresponding $76 million decrease in net income attributable to Delphi and a corresponding unfavorable earnings per share impact of $0.15 for the six months ended June 30, 2011. In April 2011, in accordance with the terms of the settlement agreement, Delphi made a payment of €90 million (approximately $133 million at April 30, 2011 exchange rates) related to this matter. In April 2012, Delphi made the final scheduled payment of €60 million (approximately $80 million at April 30, 2012 exchange rates) related to this matter.
Delphi continually evaluates alternatives to align its business with the changing needs of its customers and to lower the operating costs of the Company. This includes the realignment of its existing manufacturing capacity, facility closures, or similar actions in the normal course of business. These actions may result in voluntary or involuntary employee termination benefits, which are mainly pursuant to union or other contractual agreements. Voluntary termination benefits are accrued when an employee accepts the related offer. Involuntary termination benefits are accrued when Delphi commits to a termination plan and the benefit arrangement is communicated to affected employees, or when liabilities are determined to be probable and estimable, depending on the existence of a substantive plan for severance or termination. Contract termination costs are recorded when contracts are terminated or when Delphi ceases to use the leased facility and no longer derives economic benefit from the contract. All other exit costs are accrued when incurred.
Delphi’s restructuring costs are undertaken as necessary to implement management’s strategy, streamline operations, take advantage of available capacity and resources, and ultimately achieve net cost reductions. These activities generally relate to the realignment of existing manufacturing capacity and closure of facilities and other exit or disposal activities, as it relates to executing the Company’s strategy in the normal course of business and transforming the salaried workforce to reduce general and administrative expenses.
The table below summarizes the activity in the restructuring liability for the six months ended June 30, 2012:
Delphi has initiated several programs to streamline operations and lower costs. As part of Delphi’s ongoing efforts to lower costs and operate efficiently, the Company recorded $8 million and $14 million of restructuring costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and $8 million and $17 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, primarily related to plant closures and programs related to the rationalization of manufacturing and engineering processes. These restructuring costs were primarily incurred by the Company’s Powertrain and Electrical/Electronic
The following is a summary of debt outstanding, net of discounts of approximately $2 million and $2 million related to the Tranche A Term Loan and the Tranche B Term Loan, defined below, as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011:
In March 2011, in conjunction with the redemption of membership interests from Class A and Class C membership interest holders, Delphi Corporation, a wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary of Delphi Automotive LLP, entered into a credit agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as lead arranger and administrative agent, with respect to $3.0 billion in senior secured credit facilities. The March 2011 credit agreement has been amended and restated (the “Credit Agreement”) and as of June 30, 2012 consists of a $1.3 billion 5-year senior secured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”), a senior secured 5-year term A loan in an original amount of $258 million (the “Tranche A Term Loan”) and a senior secured 6-year term B loan in an original amount of $950 million (the “Tranche B Term Loan”). Delphi paid approximately $86 million of debt issuance costs in connection with the Credit Agreement, of which approximately $10 million has been extinguished. The debt issuance costs are being amortized over the life of the facility. The Revolving Credit Facility was undrawn at June 30, 2012. As of June 30, 2012, Delphi had approximately $9 million in letters of credit issued under the Credit Agreement. Letters of credit issued under the Credit Agreement reduce availability under the Revolving Credit Facility.
Delphi Corporation is obligated to make quarterly principal payments throughout the terms of the Tranche A and Tranche B Term Loans according to the amortization schedule in the Credit Agreement. In conjunction with repayments made during the year ended December 31, 2011, all quarterly principal payment obligations prior to maturity have been satisfied for the Tranche B Term Loan and quarterly principal payments have been satisfied through December 31, 2013 for the Tranche A Term Loan and partially satisfied through March 31, 2014. The Credit Agreement also contains certain mandatory prepayment provisions in the event the Company generates excess cash flow (as defined in the Credit Agreement) or Delphi receives net cash proceeds from any asset sale or casualty event. No mandatory prepayments, under these provisions, have been made or are due through June 30, 2012.
The interest rate period with respect to LIBOR interest rate options can be set at one-, two-, three-, or six-months as selected by Delphi Corporation in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement (or other period as may be agreed by the applicable lenders), but payable no less than quarterly. Delphi Corporation may elect to change the selected interest rate over the term of the credit facilities in accordance with the provisions of the Credit Agreement. As of June 30, 2012, Delphi Corporation selected the one-month London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) interest rate option, as detailed in the table below, and the amounts outstanding, net of the discount (in millions) and rates effective as of June 30, 2012 were based on Delphi’s current credit rating and applicable margin for the Credit Agreement:
* includes LIBOR floor of 1.00%.
The Credit Agreement contains certain covenants that limit, among other things, the Company’s (and the Company’s subsidiaries’) ability to incur additional indebtedness or liens, to dispose of assets, to make certain investments, to prepay certain indebtedness and to pay dividends, or to make other distributions or redemptions/repurchases, in respect of the Company’s equity interests. In addition, the Credit Agreement requires that the Company maintain a consolidated leverage ratio (the ratio of Consolidated Total Indebtedness to Consolidated EBITDA, each as defined in the Credit Agreement) of less than 2.75 to 1.0. The Credit Agreement also contains events of default customary for financings of this type. The Company was in compliance with the Credit Agreement covenants as of June 30, 2012.
All obligations under the Credit Agreement are borrowed by Delphi Corporation and jointly and severally guaranteed by its direct and indirect parent companies and by certain of Delphi Automotive PLC’s existing and future direct and indirect subsidiaries, subject to certain exceptions set forth in the Credit Agreement. All obligations under the Credit Agreement, including the guarantees of those obligations, are secured by certain assets of Delphi Corporation and the guarantors, including substantially all of the assets of Delphi Automotive PLC, and its U.S. subsidiaries, and certain assets of Delphi Corporation’s direct and indirect parent companies.
On May 17, 2011, Delphi Corporation issued $500 million of 5.875% senior notes due 2019 and $500 million of 6.125% senior notes due 2021 (the “Senior Notes”) in a transaction exempt from registration under Rule 144A and Regulation S of the Securities Act. Delphi paid approximately $23 million of debt issuance costs in connection with the Senior Notes. The net proceeds of approximately $1 billion as well as cash on hand were used to pay down amounts outstanding under the Credit Agreement. In May 2012, Delphi Corporation exchanged all of the Senior Notes for registered notes ("New Senior Notes")with terms identical in all material respects to the terms of the Senior Notes, except that the New Senior Notes are registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”), and the transfer restrictions and registration rights relating to the Senior Notes no longer apply. No proceeds were received by Delphi Corporation as a result of the exchange. The New Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, by Delphi Automotive PLC and certain of its existing and future subsidiaries. Interest is payable semi-annually on May 15 and November 15 of each year to holders of record at the close of business on May 1 or November 1 immediately preceding the interest payment date.
The indenture governing the New Senior Notes limits, among other things, Delphi’s (and Delphi’s subsidiaries’) ability to incur additional indebtedness or liens, dispose of assets, make certain restricted payments or investments, enter into transactions with affiliates or merge with or into other entities. As of June 30, 2012 the Company was in compliance with the provisions of the New Senior Notes.
In connection with the Acquisition, (i) Delphi Automotive LLP issued $41 million in senior unsecured five-year notes (the “Old Notes”) pursuant to a Note Purchase Agreement (the “NPA”) with an Acquisition Date fair value of $49 million and (ii) entered into a senior secured delayed draw term loan facility (the “DDTL”) with a syndicate of lenders. Additionally, in connection with the redemption of the Class A and Class C membership interests on March 31, 2011 and execution of the Credit Agreement, each of the DDTL and the NPA was terminated (including the termination, discharge and release of all security and guarantees granted in connection with the DDTL and the NPA) and Delphi paid approximately $57 million to redeem the Old Notes in full. In connection with the termination of the Old Notes, Delphi incurred early termination penalties and recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $9 million during the six months ended June 30, 2011.
Accounts receivable factoring—Various accounts receivable factoring facilities are maintained in Europe and are accounted for as short-term debt. These uncommitted factoring facilities are available through various financial institutions. As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, $45 million and $54 million, respectively, were outstanding under these accounts receivable factoring facilities.
Capital leases and other—As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, approximately $37 million and approximately $67 million, respectively, of other debt issued by certain international subsidiaries and capital lease obligations were outstanding.
Interest—Cash paid for interest related to amounts outstanding totaled $61 million and $35 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
9. PENSION BENEFITS
Certain of Delphi’s non-U.S. subsidiaries sponsor defined benefit pension plans, which generally provide benefits based
on negotiated amounts for each year of service. Delphi’s primary non-U.S. plans are located in France, Germany, Luxembourg, Mexico, Portugal and the United Kingdom (“U.K.”). The U.K. and certain Mexican plans are funded. In addition, Delphi has defined benefit plans in South Korea, Turkey and Italy for which amounts are payable to employees immediately upon separation. The obligations for these plans are recorded based on the vested obligation.
Delphi sponsors a Supplemental Executive Retirement Program (“SERP”) for those employees who were U.S. executives prior to September 30, 2008 and were still U.S. executives on October 7, 2009, the effective date of the program. This program is unfunded. Executives receive benefits over 5 years after an involuntary or voluntary separation from Delphi. The SERP is closed to new members and was frozen effective September 30, 2008.
The amounts shown below reflect the defined benefit pension expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011:
10. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
European Union Antitrust Investigation
Delphi has received requests for information from antitrust authorities at the European Commission seeking information about alleged conduct by Delphi in connection with an investigation of automotive parts suppliers concerning possible violations of antitrust laws related to the supply of wire harnesses to vehicle manufacturers. Delphi is cooperating fully with the European authorities. Investigations of this nature often continue for several years and may result in fines imposed by the European authorities. Depending on its size, a potential fine could result in a material adverse impact on the Company’s operating results and cash flows. At this time, Delphi is unable to estimate any reasonably possible range of loss that may ultimately result from this investigation. No accrual for this matter has been recorded as of June 30, 2012.
Class Action Antitrust Litigation
A number of class action complaints have been filed in various U.S. federal district courts alleging that several wire harness manufacturers, including Delphi, have violated U.S. antitrust laws. These complaints allege that direct and indirect purchasers overpaid for their vehicles as a result of the alleged conduct of the wire harness manufacturers. In February 2012, these complaints were consolidated and transferred to the federal district court in the Eastern District of Michigan. In June 2012, Delphi was dismissed, without prejudice, from these actions.
Unsecured Creditors Litigation
In December 2011, a complaint was filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the "Bankruptcy Court") alleging that the redemption by Delphi Automotive LLP of the membership interests of GM and the PBGC, the initial public offering and a distribution by Delphi Automotive LLP in the amount of $95 million principally in respect of taxes constituted, in the aggregate, distributions to the members of Delphi Automotive LLP in excess of $7.2 billion. The complaint further alleges that such aggregate distributions obligate Delphi Automotive LLP to pay to the holders of allowed general unsecured claims against the Predecessor $32.50 for every $67.50 in excess of $7.2 billion in distributions, up to a maximum of $300 million. In March 2012, the Bankruptcy Court heard arguments and granted Delphi’s motion to dismiss
the complaint. In June 2012, the unsecured creditors filed an appeal of the decision of the Bankruptcy Court with the federal district court for the Southern District of New York. The Company continues to believe that the allegations contained in the original complaint are without merit and intends to vigorously contest the appeal. No accrual for this matter has been recorded as of June 30, 2012.
Delphi is subject to the requirements of U.S. federal, state, local and non-U.S. environmental and safety and health laws and regulations. As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the undiscounted reserve for environmental investigation and remediation was approximately $22 million (of which $3 million was recorded in accrued liabilities and $19 million was recorded in other long-term liabilities) and $22 million (of which $5 million was recorded in accrued liabilities and $17 million was recorded in other long-term liabilities). Delphi cannot ensure that environmental requirements will not change or become more stringent over time or that its eventual environmental remediation costs and liabilities will not exceed the amount of its current reserves. In the event that such liabilities were to significantly exceed the amounts recorded, Delphi’s results of operations could be materially affected. At June 30, 2012, the difference between the recorded liabilities and the reasonably possible range of loss was not material.
Ordinary Business Litigation
Delphi is from time to time subject to various legal actions and claims incidental to its business, including those arising out of alleged defects, breach of contracts, product warranties, intellectual property matters, and employment-related matters. It is the opinion of Delphi that the outcome of such matters will not have a material adverse impact on the consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows of Delphi. With respect to warranty matters, although Delphi cannot ensure that the future costs of warranty claims by customers will not be material, Delphi believes its established reserves are adequate to cover potential warranty settlements.
Delphi conducts significant business operations in Brazil that are subject to the Brazilian federal labor, social security, environmental, tax and customs laws, as well as a variety of state and local laws. While Delphi believes it complies with such laws, they are complex, subject to varying interpretations, and the Company is often engaged in litigation with government agencies regarding the application of these laws to particular circumstances. In addition, Delphi also is a party to commercial and labor litigation with private parties in Brazil. As of June 30, 2012, related claims totaling $210 million (using June 30, 2012 foreign currency rates) have been asserted against Delphi. As of June 30, 2012, the Company maintains accruals for these asserted claims of $37 million (using June 30, 2012 foreign currency rates). The amounts accrued represent claims that are deemed probable of loss and are reasonably estimable based on the Company’s analyses and assessment of the asserted claims and prior experience with similar matters. While the Company believes its accruals are adequate, the final amounts required to resolve these matters could differ materially from the Company’s recorded estimates and Delphi’s results of operations could be materially affected.
11. INCOME TAXES
For purposes of comparability and consistency the Company uses the notional U.S. federal income tax rate when presenting the Company’s reconciliation of the income tax provision. The Company is a U.K. resident taxpayer and as such is not generally subject to U.K. tax on remitted foreign earnings. As a result, the Company does not anticipate foreign earnings would be subject to a 35% tax rate upon repatriation to the U.K., as is the case when U.S. based companies repatriate earnings to the U.S. A reconciliation of the provision for income taxes compared with the amounts at the notional U.S. federal statutory rate was:
The Company’s tax rate is affected by the tax rates in the jurisdictions in which the Company operates, the relative amount of income earned in each jurisdiction and the relative amount of losses or income for which no tax benefit or expense was recognized due to a valuation allowance, which was favorably impacted in 2012 as compared to 2011 primarily due to tax planning initiatives.
The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was impacted by a reduction of $22 million in tax reserves due to resolution of open issues with tax authorities and a reduction of $14 million in withholding tax expense. The effective tax rate in the six months ended June 30, 2011 was impacted by a reduction of $11 million due to tax planning actions offset by an increase of $10 million in withholding tax expense related to the funding of the redemption of all the outstanding Class A and Class C membership interests in Delphi Automotive LLP.
Cash paid for income taxes was approximately $153 million and $155 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
Tax return filing determinations and elections
Delphi Automotive LLP, which acquired the automotive supply and other businesses of the Predecessor on October 6, 2009, the Acquisition Date, was established on August 19, 2009 as a limited liability partnership incorporated under the laws of England and Wales. At the time of its formation, Delphi Automotive LLP elected to be treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Prior to the Acquisition Date, the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) issued Notice 2009-78 (the “Notice”) announcing its intent to issue regulations under Section 7874 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), with an effective date prior to the Acquisition Date. If regulations as described in the Notice are issued with the effective date indicated in the Notice and with no exceptions for transactions that were subject to binding commitments on that date, the Company believes there is a significant risk that the IRS may assert that Delphi Automotive LLP, and as a result Delphi Automotive PLC, should be treated as a domestic corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, retroactive to the Acquisition Date. If Delphi Automotive LLP were treated as a domestic corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the Company expects that, although it is incorporated under the laws of Jersey and a tax resident in the U.K., it would also be treated as a domestic corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes.
Delphi Automotive LLP has filed U.S. federal partnership tax returns for 2009 and 2010. In light of the Notice, the IRS is currently reviewing whether Section 7874 applies to Delphi Automotive LLP’s acquisition of the automotive supply and other businesses of the Predecessor. The Company believes, after consultation with counsel, that neither Delphi Automotive LLP nor Delphi Automotive PLC should be treated as domestic corporations for U.S. federal income tax purposes, and intends to vigorously defend any assertion by the IRS to the contrary, including through litigation if the Company were unable to reach a satisfactory resolution with the IRS. However, no assurance can be given that the IRS will not contend, or that a court would not conclude, that Delphi Automotive LLP, and therefore Delphi Automotive PLC should not be treated as a domestic corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes. No accrual for this matter has been recorded as of June 30, 2012.
If the Company was treated as a domestic corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the Company would be subject to U.S. federal income tax on its worldwide taxable income, including some or all of the distributions from subsidiaries as well as some of the undistributed earnings of foreign subsidiaries that constitute “controlled foreign corporations.” This could have a material adverse impact on our future tax liability related to these distributions and earnings. Future cash distributions made by the Company to non-U.S. shareholders could be subject to U.S. income tax withholding at a rate of 30%, unless reduced or eliminated by a tax treaty. In addition, the Company could be liable for additional U.S. federal income taxes on such distributions and earnings, and for the failure by Delphi Automotive LLP to withhold U.S. income taxes on distributions to its non-U.S. members, for periods beginning on or after, the Acquisition Date, which liability could have a material adverse impact on our results of operations and financial condition.
12. SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY AND NET INCOME PER SHARE
On May 19, 2011, Delphi Automotive PLC was formed as a Jersey public limited company, and had nominal assets, no liabilities and had conducted no operations prior to its initial public offering. On November 22, 2011, in conjunction with the completion of its initial public offering, all of the outstanding equity of Delphi Automotive LLP was exchanged for 328,244,510 ordinary shares, par value $0.01 in Delphi Automotive PLC. As a result, Delphi Automotive LLP became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delphi Automotive PLC, and subsequent to the exchange, Delphi Automotive PLC completed the initial public offering of 24,078,827 ordinary shares by the selling shareholders for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $530 million. Delphi Automotive PLC did not receive any proceeds from the offering, and incurred transaction fees and expenses of approximately $44 million.
Immediately prior to the exchange of membership interests for ordinary shares and the completion of the initial public offering, there were 344,495 Class B and 24,000 Class E-1 membership interests outstanding. Substantially all of the membership interests were exchanged for 326,306,261 ordinary shares and 1,938,249 ordinary shares of Delphi Automotive PLC, respectively. Additionally, in conjunction with the Acquisition on October 6, 2009, there were also 1,750,000 Class A and 100,000 Class C membership interests issued and outstanding until March 31, 2011, when all Class A and Class C membership interests were redeemed. See “Class A and Class C Membership Interests Redemption” below for additional information.
Net Income Per Share
Basic net income per share is computed by dividing net income attributable to Delphi by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share reflects the weighted average dilutive impact of all potentially dilutive securities from the date of issuance and is computed using the treasury stock method by dividing net income attributable to Delphi by the diluted weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding. For all periods presented, the calculation of net income per share contemplates the dilutive impacts, if any, of the Company’s share-based compensation plans. Refer to Note 16. Share-Based Compensation for additional information. For all periods presented, the effect of the Value Creation Plan (the “VCP”) awards was anti-dilutive and therefore excluded from the calculation of diluted net income per share, as discussed in Note 16. Share-Based Compensation.
Weighted Average Shares
As described above, on November 22, 2011, Delphi Automotive PLC completed the exchange of all of the outstanding equity of Delphi Automotive LLP for 328,244,510 ordinary shares in Delphi Automotive PLC. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, the net income per share is presented giving effect to this transaction on a retrospective basis. In addition, weighted average shares outstanding for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 were impacted by the following transactions:
The impact of the above transactions on weighted average shares outstanding follows:
(1) The Class A and C membership interests redeemed on March 31, 2011 represented approximately 51% of all outstanding membership interests at the Acquisition Date. The remaining 49% membership interests consisted primarily of Class B membership interests. The 328.24 million ordinary shares outstanding as of the date of the initial public offering were adjusted to reflect ordinary shares outstanding for the Class A and C membership interests prior to March 31, 2011.
The following table illustrates net income per share attributable to Delphi and the weighted average shares outstanding used in calculating basic and diluted income per share:
Share Repurchase Program
In January 2012, the Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase of up to $300 million of ordinary shares. The program will terminate on the earlier to occur of December 31, 2012 or when the Company attains $300 million in ordinary share repurchases. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, Delphi repurchased 5,297,240 shares at an average price of $28.35, which totaled approximately $150 million, leaving approximately $150 million of share repurchases available under the program. All repurchased shares were retired, and are reflected as a reduction of ordinary share capital for the par value of the shares, with the excess applied as reductions to additional paid-in capital and retained earnings.
Class A and Class C Membership Interests Redemption
On March 31, 2011, all 1,750,000 outstanding Class A membership interests held by GM and 100,000 Class C membership interests held by the PBGC were redeemed for $3,791 million and $594 million, respectively. In conjunction with the redemption transaction, Delphi Automotive LLP incurred transaction-related fees and expenses totaling approximately $180 million, including amounts paid to certain membership interest holders.
Prior to the completion of the initial public offering on November 22, 2011, net income and other changes to membership interests were allocated to the respective outstanding classes based on the cumulative distribution provisions of the Fourth LLP Agreement.
Under the terms of the Acquisition and the Fourth LLP Agreement, if cumulative distributions to the members of Delphi Automotive LLP under certain provisions of the Fourth LLP Agreement exceed $7.2 billion, Delphi, as disbursing agent on behalf of DPHH, is required to pay to the holders of allowed general unsecured claims against the Predecessor, $32.50 for every $67.50 in excess of $7.2 billion distributed to the members, up to a maximum amount of $300 million. Refer to Note 10. Commitments and Contingencies for additional information.
13. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS, DERIVATIVES AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES
Delphi’s non-derivative financial instruments include debt which consists of its accounts receivable factoring arrangements, capital leases and other debt issued by Delphi’s foreign subsidiaries, the Tranche A Term Loan, the Tranche B Term Loan and the New Senior Notes. The fair value of debt is based on quoted market prices for instruments with public market data or the current book value for instruments without a quoted public market price (Level 2). As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the total of debt was recorded at $2,064 million and $2,103 million, respectively, and had estimated fair values of $2,142 million and $2,125 million, respectively. For all other financial instruments recorded at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, fair value approximates book value.
Derivatives and Hedging Activities
Delphi is exposed to market risk, such as fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, commodity prices and changes
in interest rates, which may result in cash flow risks. To manage the volatility relating to these exposures, Delphi aggregates the exposures on a consolidated basis to take advantage of natural offsets. For exposures that are not offset within its operations, Delphi enters into various derivative transactions pursuant to its risk management policies, which prohibit holding or issuing derivative financial instruments for trading purposes, and designation of derivative instruments is performed on a transaction basis to support hedge accounting. The changes in fair value of these hedging instruments are offset in part or in whole by corresponding changes in the fair value or cash flows of the underlying exposures being hedged. Delphi assesses the initial and ongoing effectiveness of its hedging relationships in accordance with its documented policy. As of June 30, 2012, Delphi has entered into derivative instruments to hedge cash flows extending out to July 2014.
As of June 30, 2012, the Company had the following outstanding notional amounts related to commodity and foreign currency forward contracts that were entered into to hedge forecasted exposures:
The fair value of derivative financial instruments recorded in the consolidated balance sheets as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 are as follows:
* Derivative instruments within this category are subject to master netting arrangements and are presented on a net basis in the consolidated balance sheets in accordance with accounting guidance related to the offsetting of amounts related to certain contracts.
The fair value of Delphi’s derivative financial instruments increased from a net liability position at December 31, 2011 to a smaller net liability position at June 30, 2012 primarily due to favorable movements in the forward rates of certain commodities and currencies.
The effect of derivative financial instruments in the consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2012 is as follows:
The effect of derivative financial instruments in the consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2011 is as follows:
The effect of derivative financial instruments in the consolidated statement of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2012 is as follows:
The effect of derivative financial instruments in the consolidated statement of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2011 is as follows:
The gain or loss reclassified from OCI into income for the effective portion of designated derivative instruments and the gain or loss recognized in income for the ineffective portion of designated derivative instruments excluded from effectiveness testing were recorded to cost of sales in the consolidated statements of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. The gain or loss recognized in income for non-designated derivative instruments was recorded in other income, net and cost of goods sold for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.
Gains and losses on derivatives qualifying as cash flow hedges are recorded in OCI, to the extent that hedges are effective, until the underlying transactions are recognized in earnings. Unrealized amounts in accumulated OCI will fluctuate based on changes in the fair value of hedge derivative contracts at each reporting period. Net losses included in accumulated OCI as of June 30, 2012 were $14 million ($9 million net of tax). Of this loss, approximately $14 million is expected to be included in cost of sales within the next 12 months and no gain is expected to be included in cost of sales in subsequent periods. Cash flow hedges are discontinued when Delphi determines it is no longer probable that the originally forecasted transactions will occur. The amount included in cost of sales related to hedge ineffectiveness was insignificant for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.
As more fully disclosed in Note 15. Acquisitions and Divestitures, Delphi has entered into an agreement to acquire FCI Group's ("FCI") Motorized Vehicles Division ("MVL"). In conjunction with the transaction, in June 2012, the Company entered into option contracts with notional amounts totaling €250 million to hedge portions of the currency risk associated with the cash payment for the planned acquisition at a cost of $9 million. Pursuant to the requirements of ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging, the options are unable to qualify as hedges for accounting purposes, and therefore, changes in the fair value of the options are recognized in other income(expense), net. The options expire in the fourth quarter of 2012. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, the change in fair value resulted in a $2 million loss.
Fair Value Measurements
Fair Value Measurements on a Recurring Basis
All derivative instruments are required to be reported on the balance sheet at fair value unless the transactions qualify and are designated as normal purchases or sales. Changes in fair value are reported currently through earnings unless they meet hedge accounting criteria. Delphi’s derivative exposures are with counterparties with long-term investment grade credit ratings. Delphi estimates the fair value of its derivative contracts using an income approach based on valuation techniques to convert future amounts to a single, discounted amount. Estimates of the fair value of foreign currency and commodity derivative instruments are determined using exchange traded prices and rates. Delphi also considers the risk of non-performance in the estimation of fair value, and includes an adjustment for non-performance risk in the measure of fair value of derivative instruments. The non-performance risk adjustment reflects the credit default spread (“CDS”) applied to the net commodity by counterparty and foreign currency exposures by counterparty. When Delphi is in a net derivative asset position, the counterparty CDS rates are applied to the net derivative asset position. When Delphi is in a net derivative liability position,
estimates of peer companies’ CDS rates are applied to the net derivative liability position.
In certain instances where market data is not available, Delphi uses management judgment to develop assumptions that are used to determine fair value. This could include situations of market illiquidity for a particular currency or commodity or where observable market data may be limited. In those situations, Delphi generally surveys investment banks and/or brokers and utilizes the surveyed prices and rates in estimating fair value.
As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, Delphi was in a net derivative liability position of $8 million and $65 million, respectively, and no significant adjustments were recorded for nonperformance risk based on the application of peer companies’ CDS rates and because Delphi’s exposures were to counterparties with investment grade credit ratings.
As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, Delphi had the following assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis:
As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, Delphi had the following liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis:
Fair Value Measurements on a Nonrecurring Basis
In addition to items that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis, Delphi also has items in its balance sheet that are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis. As these items are not measured at fair value on a recurring basis, they are not included in the tables above. Nonfinancial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis include long-lived assets, intangible assets, asset retirement obligations and liabilities for exit or disposal activities measured at fair value upon initial recognition. No significant impairment charges were recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. Fair value of long-lived assets is determined primarily using the anticipated cash flows discounted at a rate commensurate with the risk involved and a review of appraisals. As such, Delphi has determined that the fair value measurements of long-lived assets fall in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.
14. OTHER INCOME (EXPENSE), NET
Other income (expense), net included:
During the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, Delphi recognized a $6 million impairment of an investment in available-for-sale securities. Additionally, Delphi paid $36.5 million and $137.5 million of the Tranche A Term Loan and Tranche B Term Loan, respectively and paid $57 million to extinguish the Notes and recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $8 million and $17 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.
15. ACQUISITIONS AND DIVESTITURES
Agreement to Acquire Motorized Vehicles Division of FCI
In May 2012, Delphi entered into exclusive negotiations and made a binding offer to acquire FCI's MVL division. In July 2012, the parties entered into a purchase agreement. MVL is a leading global manufacturer of automotive connection systems with a focus on high-value, leading technology applications. The transaction is denominated primarily in Euros, and based on currency exchange rates as of June 30, 2012, is valued at approximately $950 million on a cash and debt-free basis. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2012, subject to standard regulatory approvals.
Sale of Italian Thermal Special Application Business
On April 30, 2012, Delphi completed the sale of its Thermal Special Application business located in Italy. The net sales of this business were approximately $23 million for the period from January 1 to April 30, 2012. Delphi received net proceeds of $14 million from the sale and recognized a gain on divestiture of $3 million, which is included in cost of sales in the consolidated statement of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. The results of operations, including the gain on divestiture were not significant to the consolidated financial statements in any period presented, and the divestiture did not meet the discontinued operations criteria.
Purchase of Noncontrolling Interest in JV
In February 2012, Delphi’s Powertrain segment completed the acquisition of the remaining ownership interest in a majority-owned joint venture for a purchase price of $16 million. The acquisition was not material to the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Delphi previously had effective control of the joint venture and consolidated its results. The acquisition resulted in the elimination of the non-controlling interest.
Sale of Daesung Investment
On January 31, 2011, Delphi completed the sale of its 49.5% ownership interest in Daesung Electric, Co., Ltd. Delphi received $35 million in net proceeds and recognized a gain on divestiture of $8 million, which is included in equity income, net of tax, in the consolidated statement of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2011.
16. SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION
Long Term Incentive Plan
In November 2011, the Delphi Automotive PLC Long Term Incentive Plan (the “PLC LTIP”) was established, which allowed for the grant of awards of up to 22,977,116 ordinary shares for long-term compensation. The PLC LTIP is designed to align the interests of management and shareholders. The awards can be in the form of shares, options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units (“RSUs”), performance awards, and other share-based awards to the employees, directors, consultants or advisors of the Company. The Company has competitive and market appropriate holding requirements.
On June 14, 2012, Delphi granted 64,459 RSUs to the Board of Directors at a grant date fair value of approximately $2 million. The grant date fair value was determined based on the closing price of the Company’s ordinary shares on June 14,
2012. The RSUs will vest on April 24, 2013.
On June 13, 2012, 51,003 RSUs granted to the Board of Directors on November 22, 2011 vested. The grant date fair value was approximately $1 million, and was determined based on the closing price of the Company’s ordinary shares on November 22, 2011. Upon vesting of the RSUs, 49,983 ordinary shares were issued to the Board of Directors and 1,020 ordinary shares were withheld to cover the minimum U.K. withholding taxes.
In February 2012, Delphi granted 1.88 million RSUs to its executives. These awards include a time-based vesting portion and a performance-based vesting portion. The time-based RSUs, which make up 25% of the awards for Delphi’s officers and 50% for Delphi’s other executives, will vest ratably over three years beginning on the first anniversary of the grant date. The performance-based RSUs, which make up 75% of the awards for Delphi’s officers and 50% for Delphi’s other executives, will vest at the completion of a three-year performance period at the end of 2014. Any new executives prior to the end of 2014 may be granted RSUs which will be valued at their grant date fair value and will vest as described above. Each executive will receive between 0% and 200% of his/her target performance-based award based on the Company’s performance against established company-wide performance metrics, which are:
The grant date fair value of the RSUs was determined based on the closing price of the Company’s ordinary shares on the date of the grant of the award, including an estimate for forfeitures, and a contemporaneous valuation performed by an independent valuation specialist with respect to the relative total shareholder return awards, and is estimated to be approximately $58 million based on the target number of awards issued.
A summary of activity, including award grants, vesting and forfeitures is provided below
Delphi recognized compensation expense of $8 million ($6 million, net of tax) and $12 million ($9 million, net of tax) based on the Company’s best estimate of ultimate performance against target during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. Delphi will continue to recognize compensation expense, based on the grant date fair value of the awards applied to the Company’s best estimate of ultimate performance against the respective targets, over the requisite vesting periods of the awards. Based on the grant date fair value of the awards and the Company’s best estimate of ultimate performance against the respective targets as of June 30, 2012, unrecognized compensation expense on a pretax basis of approximately $58 million is anticipated to be recognized through the end of 2014. There were no cash flow impacts for the six months ended June 30, 2012.
Value Creation Plan
During the second quarter of 2010, the Board of Managers approved and authorized the VCP, a long-term incentive plan designed to assist the Company in attracting, retaining, motivating and rewarding key employees of the Company and promoting the creation of long-term value. Participants were granted an award in September 2010 for the performance period ending December 31, 2012. Each individual participant’s target value was based on the participants’ level of responsibility within the Company and the country in which the participant is located. The awards cliff vest at the end of the performance period, but may immediately fully vest upon a change in control, as defined in the VCP, for certain participants, or a qualifying termination following a change in control, for officers. In the event of a qualified termination, as defined in the VCP, the
participant shall vest in a pro-rata percentage of their award as of the termination date. For any other termination, the award shall be forfeited.
The amounts to be settled under the VCP will be determined based on Delphi’s enterprise value and accumulated distributions (as well as $4.4 billion paid to repurchase Class A and Class C membership interests (Refer to Note 12. Shareholders’ Equity and Net Income Per Share for more information)), any Class B membership interest repurchases, any additional distributions to Class B and Class E-1 membership interest holders and any amounts distributed to holders of Class E-1 membership interests to repurchase their Class E-1 membership interests, all as of December 31, 2012, compared to a target enterprise value of $8.25 billion. An enterprise value of $2.5 billion must be achieved to receive a minimum award payout and above this level the payout is determined as a percentage of the target award. The authorized target amount of the awards is $135 million (of which awards in the amount of $105 million are outstanding as of June 30, 2012), but the ultimate final settlement amount of the awards could be higher or lower, depending on the enterprise value of Delphi at December 31, 2012. The estimated fair value of the awards granted as of June 30, 2012 was $229 million. Because of Delphi’s completed initial public offering, the estimated enterprise value will be based on the average daily closing market price of the Company between November 17, 2011 and the end of the performance period, plus any distributions to holders of all membership interests and the approximately $4.4 billion paid to repurchase Class A and Class C membership interests, any Class B membership interest repurchases, any additional distributions to Class B and Class E-1 membership interest holders and any amounts distributed to holders of Class E-1 membership interests with respect to or to repurchase their Class E-1 membership interests. Delphi recognizes compensation expense based on estimates of the enterprise value, over the requisite vesting periods of the awards. Compensation expense recognized during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 totaled $34 million ($26 million, net of tax) and $31 million ($24 million, net of tax), respectively. Compensation expense recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 totaled $80 million ($60 million, net of tax) and $48 million ($38 million, net of tax), respectively. Based on the estimate of enterprise value as of June 30, 2012, which incorporates an average daily closing market price from the initial public offering date to June 30, 2012 of $27.55, unrecognized compensation expense on a pretax basis of approximately $42 million is anticipated to be recognized during the remainder of 2012. There were no cash flow impacts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. The liability related to this expense is included in accrued liabilities as of June 30, 2012.
The VCP awards are accounted for as liability awards pursuant to FASB ASC 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation. Estimating the fair value of the liability awards under the VCP requires assumptions regarding the Company’s enterprise value. Any differences in actual results from management’s estimates could result in fair values different from estimated fair values, which could materially impact the Company’s future results of operations and financial condition. Prior to public quoted market prices for averages to determine fair value estimates for the VCP, the fair market value of the liability awards were based on contemporaneous valuations performed by an independent valuation specialist, utilizing generally accepted valuation approaches.
17. SUPPLEMENTAL GUARANTOR AND NON-GUARANTOR CONDENSED CONSOLIDATING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Basis of Presentation
In May 2011, Delphi Corporation issued the Senior Notes in a transaction exempt from registration under Rule 144A and Regulation S of the Securities Act. The Senior Notes were exchanged for registered notes in an exchange offer completed in May 2012. Refer to Note 8. Debt for more information. All obligations under the New Senior Notes are borrowed by Delphi Corporation (“Subsidiary Issuer”) and are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by certain of its direct and indirect parent companies the (“Parent Companies”) and by certain of Delphi Automotive PLC’s direct and indirect subsidiaries (the “Guarantor Subsidiaries”) on a joint and several basis, subject to customary release provisions. Subsidiaries not subject to the guarantee (“Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries”) consist primarily of the non-U.S. subsidiaries of the Company.
In lieu of providing separate audited financial statements for the Guarantors, the Company has included the accompanying condensed consolidating financial statements. These condensed consolidating financial statements are presented on the equity method. Under this method, the investments in subsidiaries are recorded at cost and adjusted for the parent’s share of the subsidiary’s cumulative results of operations, capital contributions and distributions and other equity changes. The Guarantor Subsidiaries are combined in the condensed consolidating financial statements. The principal elimination entries are to eliminate the investments in subsidiaries and intercompany balances and transactions.
