Delphi Reports First Quarter 2007 Financial Results


TROY, Mich. — Delphi Corp. today reported first quarter 2007 financial results with revenues of $6.7 billion, and a net loss of $533 million. Non-GM revenues were $3.9 billion, representing 58 percent of global revenues.

“While Delphi’s financial performance continues to reflect its uncompetitive U.S. cost structure, we are aggressively working on two fronts to improve the business — first, customer diversification by expanding our non-GM sales; and second, cost reductions through SG&A restructuring and operational excellence,” said Rodney O’Neal, Delphi CEO and president. “Our people are focused on exceeding our customers’ expectations — evidenced by a solid portfolio of new business bookings and excellent operating metrics — and our leadership is addressing transformation issues aimed at reaching consensual agreements with our stakeholders. Together, these actions should enable Delphi to emerge from Chapter 11 as a technology leader with a competitive cost structure later this year.”

First Quarter 2007 Financial Results

* Global Revenue: Revenue of $6.7 billion, down from $7.0 billion in Q1 2006.

* Non-GM Revenue: Non-GM revenue for the quarter was $3.9 billion, up from $3.8 billion in Q1 2006. Non-GM business represented 58 percent of Q1 revenues, compared to year-ago levels of 54 percent, primarily due to a 13 percent year-over-year decline in GM revenues. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency exchange, non-GM growth for the first quarter was essentially flat.

* Cash Flow: Cash flow used in operating activities was $411 million, as compared to $93 million used in operating activities for Q1 2006. Cash used in operations was negatively impacted by U.S. special attrition program cash payments of $217 million.

* Net Loss: Net loss of $533 million or a loss of $0.95 per share compared to Q1 2006 net loss of $363 million or a loss of $0.65 per share. Included in the Q1 2007 net loss are $160 million of long-lived asset impairment charges and an increase in employee termination benefits and other exit costs of $73 million. In addition, Delphi’s net loss was further impacted by lower GMNA production volumes, commodity price increases, and U.S. legacy liabilities.

* Liquidity: Delphi continues to have sufficient liquidity available in the U.S. and globally to finance our global operations. As of March 31, 2007, Delphi had $1.5 billion of cash and cash equivalents and $1.2 billion of debt capacity under the refinanced DIP credit facility.
