“During the second quarter, Garrett outperformed global auto production by approximately 32 percentage points, demonstrating continued demand for Garrett’s cutting-edge technologies, share-of-demand gains, and strong execution,” said Olivier Rabiller, Garrett President and CEO. “Our record net sales for Q2 however were affected by temporary component shortages, which slowed industry production. By drawing upon our flexible operating platform and global capabilities, we were able to mitigate the impact of the current supply-demand imbalance and capitalize on a positive sales mix to generate a robust Adjusted EBITDA margin in the quarter of 18.0%. We believe our proven and resilient business model enables Garrett to adapt quickly to short-term market disruptions. Despite the ongoing volatility in the macro environment, we expect to produce net sales growth at constant currency for the full year 2021 between 18% and 23% and maintain our leading-industry margins.
“On April 30
, Garrett successfully completed its financial restructuring and emerged with a significantly improved balance sheet with less debt. Our new capital structure combined with our greater operational and financial flexibility enhances our position to take advantage of both organic and inorganic growth opportunities while further investing in new, differentiated
technologies. As we move forward as a stronger, more financially sound company, we intend to accelerate our innovations to the market for the benefit of our global customers and create long-term value for shareholders.”
Results of Operations
for the second quarter of 2021 were $935 million compared to $477 million in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of 96.0%. Net sales at constant currency increased 82.6% and total volumes expanded approximately 84% to 3.4 million units. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by higher volumes across Europe and North America as Garrett’s manufacturing facilities in these regions reduced production in the second quarter of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the six months ended June 30, 2021, reported net sales totaled $1,932 million compared to $1,222 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Net sales at constant currency increased 47.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2021.
for the second quarter of 2021 was $742 million compared to $397 million in the second quarter of 2020 primarily due to higher volumes. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, cost of goods sold was $1,543 million, compared to $1,004 million for the same period in 2020.
percentage for the second quarter of 2021 increased to 20.6% from 16.8% in the second quarter of 2020 primarily due to higher volume leverage. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, gross profit percentage was 20.1% compared to 17.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses
for the second quarter of 2021 increased to $51 million from $47 million in the prior year period primarily due to foreign exchange rates fluctuations. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, SG&A totaled $106 million compared to $104 million for the same period in 2020.
for the second quarter of 2021 was $24 million versus $20 million in the second quarter of 2020 mainly due to the issuance of the Series B Preferred Stock, partially offset by fees in the prior year period related to amendments to the company’s previous credit facilities. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, interest expense totaled $45 million versus $36 million for the same period in 2020.
for the second quarter of 2021 increased to $26 million from $4 million in the second quarter of 2020, primarily due to foreign exchange rates fluctuations related to the debt, which was unhedged due to the restrictions placed on the company in Chapter 11 (see below under “Emergence from Chapter 11”).
For the six months ended June 30, 2021, there was no non-operating income or expense. This compares to non-operating income of $8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2021 increased to $168 million from $63 million for the same period in 2020 primarily due to higher volumes. The Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 18.0% in the quarter from 13.2% in the second quarter of 2020.

Adjusted free cash flow, which excludes reorganization items, repositioning charges (primarily severance costs related to internal restructuring projects) and stock-based compensation, was $121 million for the second quarter of 2021 for an adjusted free cash flow conversion rate of 134%.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of June 30, 2021, Garrett had $662 million in available liquidity, including $401 million in cash and cash equivalents and approximately $261 million undrawn commitments under its revolving credit facility.
As of June 30, 2021, consolidated debt and net debt, which excludes the Series B Preferred Stock, totaled $1,247 million $846 million, respectively. Honeywell may have the right to redeem the Series B Preferred Stock in accordance with its terms as soon as the fourth quarter of 2021.
Emergence from Chapter 11
As previously announced, on April 30, 2021, Garrett emerged from its pending Chapter 11 cases, successfully completing the restructuring process and implementing the Plan of Reorganization (“Plan”) that was confirmed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. With the support of a significant majority of its stakeholders, led by funds managed by Centerbridge Partners, L.P. (“Centerbridge”) and funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. (“Oaktree”), Garrett remained a publicly traded company and listed its common stock on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol GTX.
At emergence, Garrett had approximately 65.0 million shares of new common stock issued and outstanding. In addition, Garrett had approximately 247.8 million shares of new Convertible Series A Preferred Stock outstanding, which is convertible into common stock and votes on an as-converted basis with common stock. The Series A Preferred Stock pays cumulative dividends at an annual rate of 11% on the stated amount per share plus the amount of any accrued and unpaid dividends on such share.
The Plan also eliminated the previous asbestos indemnity and all related liabilities to Honeywell incurred by Garrett in its 2018 spin-off, and settled all litigation between Garrett and Honeywell. The elimination of the 30-year indemnity substantially reduced Garrett’s effective leverage and increased its operational, financial and strategic flexibility. In return
for elimination of the indemnity
Garrett made an initial cash payment to Honeywell of $375 million
and issued to Honeywell Series B Preferred Stock that entitles Honeywell to certain cash payments from 2022 to 2030. The Series B Preferred stock is repayable at any time at a present value
based on a
discount rate of 7.25%.
The Company also obtained a $1.25 billion equivalent term loan, alongside a new $300 million revolving credit facility. The restructuring substantially decreased Garrett’s long-term debt and improved its maturity profile.
Full Year 2021 Outlook
Garrett is providing the following outlook for the full year 2021 for certain GAAP and Non-GAAP financial measures.
Net sales (GAAP)
$3.70 billion to $3.90 billion
Net sales growth at constant currency (Non-GAAP)*
+18% to +23%
Outperforming global LV auto production by 8 to 12 percentage points)
Net income (GAAP)
$428 million to $468 million
Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP)*
$590 million to $640 million
Net cash used for operating activities (GAAP)
($291) million to ($191) million
Adjusted free cash flow (Non-GAAP)*
$300 million to $400 million
Garrett’s full year 2021 outlook, as of July 29, 2021, reflects the company’s expectation that global light vehicle auto production will increase between 10% and 11% for the full year 2021 and that global commercial vehicle production will increase between 3.5% and 4.5% for the full year 2021.
Garrett’s capital expenditures and RD&E expenses for the full year 2021 are expected to total approximately 3.5% and 4.3%, respectively, of net sales.
The full year 2021 outlook also assumes an exchange rate of 1.20 EUR to 1.00 USD.

Although we believe forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors, which may cause the actual results or performance of Garrett to be materially different from any future results or performance expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to those described in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, and our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as well as our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, under the headings “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.” You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this document. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and actual results, developments and business decisions may differ from those envisaged by our forward-looking statements.
This presentation includes the following Non-GAAP financial measures which are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”): constant currency sales growth, Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Free Cash Flow Conversion Rate and Net cash provided by operating activities less Expenditures for property, plant and equipment. The Non-GAAP financial measures provided herein are adjusted for certain items as presented in the Appendix containing Non-GAAP Reconciliations and may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other companies in our industry, as other companies may define such measures differently. Management believes that, when considered together with reported amounts, these measures are useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and analysis of ongoing operating trends. Garrett believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are important indicators of operating performance because they exclude the effects of income taxes and certain other items, as well as the effects of financing and investing activities by eliminating the effects of interest and depreciation expenses and therefore more closely measures our operational performance. These metrics should be considered in addition to, and not as replacements for, the most comparable GAAP measure. For additional information with respect to our Non-GAAP financial measures, see our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin (Non-GAAP) %
We evaluate performance on the basis of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. We define “EBITDA” as our net income/loss calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, plus the sum of net interest expense/income, tax expense/benefit and depreciation. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA, plus the sum of non-operating income/expense, other expenses, net (which consists of indemnification, asbestos and environmental expenses), stock compensation expense, reorganization items, net, repositioning charges and foreign exchange gain/loss on debt, net of related hedging gain/loss. We believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are important indicators of operating performance and provide useful information for investors because:
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA exclude the effects of income taxes, as well as the effects of financing and investing activities by eliminating the effects of interest and depreciation expenses and therefore more closely measure our operational performance; and
certain adjustment items, while periodically affecting our results, may vary significantly from period to period and have disproportionate effect
a given period, which affects comparability of our results.
In addition, our management may use Adjusted EBITDA in setting performance incentive targets in order to align performance measurement with operational performance.
The accounting for the majority of our asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable reflect the terms of the Honeywell Indemnity Agreement with Honeywell entered into on September 12, 2018, under which Garrett ASASCO is currently required to make payments to Honeywell in amounts equal to 90% of Honeywell’s asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable, primarily related to Honeywell’s former Bendix business in the United States, as well as certain environmental-related liability payments and accounts payable and non-United States asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable, in each case related to legacy elements of the Bendix business, including the legal costs of defending and resolving such liabilities, less 90% of Honeywell’s net insurance receipts and, as may be applicable, certain other recoveries associated with such liabilities. The Plan as confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court includes a global settlement with Honeywell providing for, among other things, the full and final satisfaction, settlement, release, and discharge of all liabilities under or related to the Honeywell Indemnity Agreement, that certain Indemnification Guarantee Agreement, dated as of September 27, 2018 (as amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented, or otherwise modified from time to time), by and among Honeywell ASASCO 2 Inc. as payee, Garrett ASASCO as payor, and certain subsidiary guarantors as defined
therein (the “Guarantee Agreement,” and together with the Honeywell Indemnity Agreement, the “Indemnity Agreements”) and the Tax Matters Agreement. See Note 22, Commitments and Contingencies of Notes to the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements.
Non-operating income adjustment includes the non-service component of pension expense and other expense, net and excludes interest income, equity income of affiliates, and the impact of foreign exchange.
The Company applied ASC 852 for periods subsequent to the Petition Date to distinguish transactions and events that were directly associated with the Company's reorganization from the ongoing operations of the business. Accordingly, certain expenses and gains incurred during the Chapter 11 Cases are recorded within Reorganization items, net in the Consolidated Interim Statements of Operations. The Company applied U.S. GAAP for period subsequent to the Effective Date. See Note 1, Background and Basis of Presentation of Notes to the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements.
Stock compensation expense adjustment includes only non-cash expenses.
Repositioning charges adjustment primarily includes severance costs related to restructuring projects to improve future productivity.
Professional service costs consist of professional service fees related to strategic planning for the Company in the period before the Debtors filed for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in September 2020. We consider these costs to be unrelated to our ongoing core business operations.
Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.
Reconciliation of Constant Currency Sales % Change
Reported sales % change
Less: Foreign currency translation
Constant currency sales % change
We previously referred to “constant currency sales growth” as “organic sales growth.” We define constant currency sales growth as the year-over-year change in reported sales relative to the comparable period, excluding the impact on sales from foreign currency translation. This is the same definition we previously used for “organic sales growth”. We believe this measure is useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends.
