        Commercial Vehicle Group Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

PR Newswire

NEW ALBANY, Ohio, Oct. 31, 2012

NEW ALBANY, Ohio, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc.
(Nasdaq: CVGI) today reported revenues of $204.8 million for the third quarter
of 2012, a decrease of approximately 5.6% compared to $216.9 million for the
prior-year period. Operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $8.9
million compared to $13.5 million for the third quarter of 2011. Net income
was $30.5 million for the third quarter, or $1.07 per diluted share, compared
to $7.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter.
Included in the third quarter of 2012 results is an income tax benefit of
approximately $27.0 million primarily related to the release of the Company's
domestic deferred tax asset valuation allowance. 

"The decline in our revenues for this quarter compared to the run rates we
experienced in the first half of the year is evidence of the softening we had
earlier predicted in some of our key end markets," said Mervin Dunn, President
and CEO of Commercial Vehicle Group. "Despite some anticipated near-term
softness, we still believe our Company is well positioned and our strategy is
sound for the long-term. We will continue to stay focused on our strategic
growth initiatives as we do not expect near-term fluctuating market conditions
to prohibit CVG from achieving our longer-term strategic objectives," added
Mr. Dunn.

The Company did not have any outstanding borrowings under its asset-based
revolver at September 30, 2012 and, as a result, was not subject to any
financial maintenance covenants. In addition, the Company had approximately
$99.5 million of cash on its balance sheet at September 30, 2012 with an
additional $37.0 million of availability under its asset-based revolver for
total liquidity availability of approximately $136.5 million.

"With the recent trends of market softening, we will be focused on utilizing
our variable cost structure and adjusting our operations and cost structure
accordingly without compromising the foundation we've established for
achieving our long term growth objectives," said Chad Utrup, Chief Financial
Officer of Commercial Vehicle Group. "We did record a large tax benefit
during the quarter related to the reversal of certain domestic deferred tax
valuation allowances. As we've indicated in the past, the valuation
allowances may be adjusted accordingly from time to time as our deferred tax
assets are deemed usable in the future. We do have additional valuation
allowances in foreign jurisdictions which we will continue to evaluate as we
move forward," added Mr. Utrup.
