Net sales were $2,559 million in the fourth quarter 2019, down 0.6% from $2,574 million in the fourth quarter 2018.  Net income in the fourth quarter 2019 was $220 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, compared with $230 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter 2018.  Adjusted net earnings per share in the fourth quarter 2019 were $1.17 down from $1.21 in the fourth quarter 2018.  Adjusted net earnings in the fourth quarter 2019 excluded non-comparable items of $0.11 per diluted share.  Adjusted net earnings in the fourth quarter 2018 excluded net non-comparable items of $0.11 per diluted share.  These items are listed in the table above, which is provided by the company for comparison with other results and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures.  The depreciation of certain foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar decreased net sales by approximately $51 million and decreased net earnings by approximately $0.02 per diluted share in the fourth quarter 2019 compared with the fourth quarter 2018.  The impact of the divestiture of the thermostat product line decreased net sales by $31 million in the fourth quarter 2019 compared with the fourth quarter 2018.  The decline in net earnings and adjusted net earnings is primarily due to the year-over-year decrease in equity in affiliates' earnings, corporate costs and an increase in the company's tax rate.

Full year 2019 net sales were $10,168 million, down 3.4% from $10,530 million in 2018.  Full year 2019 net income was $746 million, or $3.61 per diluted share, compared with $931 million, or $4.44 per diluted share, in 2018.  Adjusted net earnings per share for the full year 2019 were $4.13, down from $4.48 in 2018. Adjusted net earnings in the full year 2019 excluded net non-comparable items of $0.52 per diluted share.  Adjusted net earnings in the full year 2018 excluded net non-comparable items of $0.04 per diluted share. These items are listed in the table above, which is provided by the company for comparison with other results and the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. The depreciation of certain foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar decreased net sales by approximately $350 million and decreased net earnings by approximately $0.14 per diluted share in the full year 2019 compared with 2018. The impact of the divestiture of the thermostat product line decreased net sales by $90 million in the full year 2019 compared with 2018. The decline in net earnings and adjusted net earnings is primarily due to the impact of lower revenue, the increased cost from tariffs, supplier cost reductions not keeping pace with normal customer price deflation and a year-over-year increase in the company's tax rate.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $1,008 million in 2019 compared with $1,126 million in 2018.  Investments in capital expenditures, including tooling outlays, totaled $481 million in 2019, compared with $546 million in 2018. Balance sheet debt decreased $154 million, and cash and cash equivalents increased by $93 million, at the end of 2019 compared with the end of 2018.

Engine Segment Results: Engine segment net sales were $1,533 million in the fourth quarter 2019 compared with $1,541 million in fourth quarter 2018.  Excluding the impact of foreign currencies and the divestiture of the thermostat product line, net sales were up 3.5% from the prior year.  Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes and non-controlling interest ("Adjusted EBIT") were $264 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.  Excluding the impact of foreign currencies and the divestiture of the thermostat product line, Adjusted EBIT was up 11.2% from the fourth quarter of 2018.  The increase in Adjusted EBIT was primarily due to impact of higher revenue excluding the impact of weaker currencies and lower SG&A and R&D expense.

Drivetrain Segment Results: Drivetrain segment net sales were $1,042 million in the fourth quarter 2019 compared with $1,047 million in the fourth quarter 2018.  Excluding the impact of foreign currencies, net sales were up 1.5% from the prior year.  Adjusted EBIT was $136 million in the fourth quarter 2019.  Excluding the impact of foreign currencies, Adjusted EBIT was up 7.7% from the fourth quarter 2018.  The increase in Adjusted EBIT was primarily due to supplier cost savings and lower R&D costs.

Full Year 2020 Guidance: The company has provided 2020 full year guidance.  This guidance is for BorgWarner as currently consolidated and excludes the potential impact from the acquisition of Delphi Technologies PLC, which BorgWarner announced on January 28, 2020.  Net sales are expected to be in the range of $9,750 million to $10,075 million. This implies year-over-year organic sales change of down 2.5% to up 0.5%. The company expects its blended light-vehicle market to decline in the range of 2.0% to 4.0% in 2020.  Global light vehicle production expectations remain volatile, particularly in China.  Foreign currencies are expected to result in a year-over-year decrease in sales of $130 million, primarily due to the depreciation of the Euro, Chinese Renminbi and Korean Won against the U.S. dollar. The divestiture of the thermostat product line will decrease year-over-year sales by approximately $30 million.  Operating margin is expected to be in the range of 10.0% to 11.0%.  Excluding the impact of non-comparable items, adjusted operating margin is expected to be in the range of 11.6% to 12.0%.  Net earnings are expected to be within a range of $3.22 to $3.75 per diluted share.  Excluding the impact of non-comparable items, adjusted net earnings are expected to be within a range of $3.85 to $4.15 per diluted share.  Full-year operating cash flow is expected to be approximately $1,250 million, while free cash flow is expected to be in the range of $675 million to $725 million.

Net New Business Backlog: The company expects its 2020 to 2023 light vehicle net new business backlog to be within the range of $2,500 million to $2,630 millionAsia, the Americas and Europe are expected to account for approximately 70%, 20% and 10%, respectively, of the total net new business backlog over the four-year period with 50% expected in China.  Electrification is driving greater than 100% of the net new business backlog amount over the four-year period.

Cost Restructuring Plan: Over the course of the next few years, the company plans to take additional actions to reduce existing structural costs.  These actions are expected to result in primarily cash restructuring costs in the $275 million to $300 million range through the end of 2023.  The resulting annual cost savings are expected to be in the range of approximately $90 million to $100 million by 2023.  The company plans to utilize these savings to sustain the company's strong operating margin profile and long-term cost competitiveness.

Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to their closest GAAP financial measures below and in the Financial Results table above. The provision of these comparable GAAP financial measures for 2020 is not intended to indicate that BorgWarner is explicitly or implicitly providing projections on those GAAP financial measures, and actual results for such measures are likely to vary from those presented. The reconciliations include all information reasonably available to the company at the date of this press release and the adjustments that management can reasonably predict.

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to management, investors, and banking institutions in their analysis of the Company's business and operating performance. Management also uses this information for operational planning and decision-making purposes.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not and should not be considered a substitute for any GAAP measure. Additionally, because not all companies use identical calculations, the non-GAAP financial measures as presented by BorgWarner may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
