  • Giving pro forma effect to the acquisition of DDi, combined net sales were $341.0 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Pro forma growth of net sales was 1.2% year-over-year and 3.0% sequentially.
  • Operating income in the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $8.7 million, or 2.9% of net sales, and operating income includes special charges for i) $8.2 million of costs incurred directly in connection with the acquisition of DDi, ii) $3.9 million of costs related to purchase accounting, and iii) $1.8 million of restructuring costs in connection with the previously announced closures of two factories in China.

“Our second quarter of 2012 may be defined by two significant events that were accretive to our results, the acquisition of DDi and the refinancing of our senior secured notes,” stated David M. Sindelar, Chief Executive Officer of Viasystems. “We reduced our borrowing rate on our senior secured notes from 12% to 7.875%. In addition, the combination should provide us with $10 million of cost savings on an annualized basis. As a result, the DDi transaction was not only a strong strategic fit, further diversifying our revenue base and providing meaningful cross-selling opportunities, but this transaction, combined with the refinancing will be significantly accretive to our operating results on a go forward basis. As importantly, if you look beyond the effects of those two transactions, you will see that our team delivered a solid quarter operationally.”
