We also continued our track record of value-enhancing and balanced capital deployment, investing in acquisitions and returning approximately $650 million of cash to shareholders. Looking ahead, I am confident our strategically positioned portfolio and relentless focus on execution will continue to drive strong, sustainable performance and superior value creation even in a challenging macro environment, as reflected in our outlook for 2020."

Fourth Quarter 2019 Results
For the three months ended December 31, 2019, the Company reported U.S. GAAP revenue of $3.6 billion, a decrease of 1% from the prior year period, which includes adverse impacts of approximately $130 million in revenue, primarily in North America, resulting from the GM labor strike. Adjusted for currency exchange, commodity movements and divestitures, revenue increased by 2% in the fourth quarter. This reflects growth of 9% in Asia and 8% in Europe, partially offset by declines of 9% in North America and 7% in South America, our smallest region.

The Company reported fourth quarter 2019 U.S. GAAP net income of $230 million and earnings of $0.90 per diluted share, compared to $247 million and $0.94 per diluted share in the prior year period. Fourth quarter Adjusted Net Income, a non-GAAP financial measure defined below, totaled $296 million, or $1.15 per diluted share, including adverse impacts of approximately $0.28 per diluted share resulting from the GM labor strike, compared to $352 million, or $1.34 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

Fourth quarter Adjusted Operating Income, a non-GAAP financial measure defined below, was $388 million, compared to $430 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Operating Income margin was 10.8%, compared to 11.8% in the prior year period, reflecting an approximately 180 basis point impact resulting from the GM labor strike, partially offset by continued above-market sales growth. Depreciation and amortization expense totaled $178 million, a decrease from $202 million in the prior year period, resulting from decreased non-cash impairment charges and increases related to our acquisitions and capital investments.

Interest expense for the fourth quarter totaled $41 million, as compared to $37 million in the prior year period, which reflects the impacts of our debt refinancing transactions in the first quarter of 2019.

Tax expense in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $30 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 11%. Tax expense in the fourth quarter of 2018 was $42 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 14%.

Full Year 2019 Results
For the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company reported U.S. GAAP revenue of $14.4 billion, a decrease of 1% from the prior year, which includes adverse impacts of approximately $200 million in revenue, primarily in North America, resulting from the GM labor strike. Adjusted for currency exchange, commodity movements and divestitures, revenue increased by 4% during the year. This reflects growth of 8% in Europe, 4% in Asia and flat performance in North America, partially offset by a decline of 1% in South America, our smallest region.

For full year 2019, the Company reported U.S. GAAP net income of $990 million and earnings of $3.85 per diluted share, compared to $1,067 million and $4.02 per diluted share in the prior year. Full year 2019 Adjusted Net Income totaled $1,236 million, or $4.80 per diluted share, including adverse impacts of approximately $0.38 per diluted share resulting from the GM labor strike, compared to $1,396 million, or $5.26 per diluted share, in the prior year.

The Company reported Adjusted Operating Income of $1,548 million for full year 2019, compared to $1,751 million in the prior year. Adjusted Operating Income margin was 10.8% for full year 2019, compared to 12.1% in the prior year, reflecting an approximately 60 basis point impact resulting from the GM labor strike, the unfavorable impacts of currency exchange and incremental investments in advanced technologies and engineering, partially offset by continued above-market sales growth. Depreciation and amortization expense totaled $717 million, an increase from $676 million in the prior year, resulting from increases related to our acquisitions and capital investments.

Interest expense for full year 2019 totaled $164 million, as compared to $141 million in the prior year, which reflects the impacts of our debt refinancing transactions in the first quarter of 2019.

Tax expense for full year 2019 was $132 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 12%. Tax expense for full year 2018 was $250 million, resulting in an effective tax rate of approximately 19%, which includes $29 million, or approximately 2 points, due to the adjustment to the provisional amounts recorded for the one-time impacts of the U.S tax reform enactment and $33 million, or approximately 2 points, due to the one-time impacts of the Company's organizational entity restructuring resulting from the 2017 spin-off transaction.

The Company generated net cash flow from continuing operating activities of $1,624 million in 2019, compared to $1,640 million in the prior year. As of December 31, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $0.4 billion and total available liquidity of $2.4 billion.

Reconciliations of Adjusted Revenue Growth, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share, Adjusted Operating Income and Cash Flow Before Financing, which are non-GAAP measures, to the most directly comparable financial measures, respectively, calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") are provided in the attached supplemental schedules.

Share Repurchase Programs
During 2019, the Company repurchased 5.4 million shares for approximately $420 million, leaving approximately $2.1 billion available for future share repurchases. All repurchased shares were retired.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release contains information about Aptiv's financial results which are not presented in accordance with GAAP. Specifically, Adjusted Revenue Growth, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share and Cash Flow Before Financing are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted Revenue Growth represents the year-over-year change in reported net sales relative to the comparable period, excluding the impact on net sales from currency exchange, commodity movements and divestitures. Adjusted Operating Income represents net income before interest expense, other income (expense), net, income tax expense, equity income (loss), net of tax, restructuring, other acquisition and portfolio project costs, asset impairments, gains (losses) on business divestitures and deferred compensation related to acquisitions. Other acquisition and portfolio project costs include costs incurred to integrate acquired businesses and to plan and execute product portfolio transformation actions, including business and product acquisitions and divestitures. Adjusted Operating Income margin is defined as Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of net sales.

Adjusted Net Income represents net income attributable to Aptiv before restructuring and other special items, including the tax impact thereon. Adjusted Net Income Per Share represents Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. Cash Flow Before Financing represents cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations plus cash provided by (used in) investing activities, adjusted for the purchase price of business acquisitions and net proceeds from the divestiture of discontinued operations and other significant businesses.

Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are useful to both management and investors in their analysis of the Company's financial position, results of operations and liquidity. In particular, management believes Adjusted Revenue Growth, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income Per Share and Cash Flow Before Financing are useful measures in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure, provide improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and that may obscure underlying business results and trends. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the attached supplemental schedules at the end of this press release. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(Unaudited)


In this press release the Company has provided information regarding certain non-GAAP financial measures, including "Adjusted Revenue Growth," "Adjusted Operating Income," "Adjusted Net Income," "Adjusted Net Income Per Share" and "Cash Flow Before Financing." Such non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled to their closest GAAP financial measure in the following schedules.


Adjusted Revenue Growth : Adjusted Revenue Growth is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's financial performance which management believes is useful to investors in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measure, provides improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and which may obscure underlying business results and trends. Our management utilizes Adjusted Revenue Growth in its financial decision making process, to evaluate performance of the Company and for internal reporting, planning and forecasting purposes. Adjusted Revenue Growth is defined as the year-over-year change in reported net sales relative to the comparable period, excluding the impact on net sales from currency exchange, commodity movements and divestitures. Not all companies use identical calculations of Adjusted Revenue Growth, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted Operating Income : Adjusted Operating Income is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's financial performance which management believes is useful to investors in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measure, provides improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and which may obscure underlying business results and trends. Our management utilizes Adjusted Operating Income in its financial decision making process, to evaluate performance of the Company and for internal reporting, planning and forecasting purposes. Management also utilizes Adjusted Operating Income as the key performance measure of segment income or loss and for planning and forecasting purposes to allocate resources to our segments, as management also believes this measure is most reflective of the operational profitability or loss of our operating segments. Adjusted Operating Income is defined as net income before interest expense, other income (expense), net, income tax expense, equity income (loss), net of tax, restructuring and other special items. Not all companies use identical calculations of Adjusted Operating Income, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Operating income margin represents Operating income as a percentage of net sales, and Adjusted Operating Income margin represents Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of net sales.

APTIV PLC
RECONCILIATION OF NET EARNINGS TO ADJUSTED EARNINGS
(Unaudited)


Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share : Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share, which are non-GAAP measures, are presented as supplemental measures of the Company's financial performance which management believes are useful to investors in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance that, when reconciled to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measure, provide improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's core operating performance and which may obscure underlying business results and trends. Management utilizes Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share in its financial decision making process, to evaluate performance of the Company and for internal reporting, planning and forecasting purposes. Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income attributable to Aptiv before restructuring and other special items, including the tax impact thereon. Adjusted Net Income Per Share is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. Not all companies use identical calculations of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Per Share, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Represents the income tax impacts of the adjustments made for restructuring and other special items by calculating the income tax impact of these items using the appropriate tax rate for the jurisdiction where the charges were incurred and the impact of the intra-entity transfer of intellectual property of approximately $33 million during the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

Cash Flow Before Financing : Cash Flow Before Financing is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's liquidity which is consistent with the basis and manner in which management presents financial information for the purpose of making internal operating decisions, evaluating its liquidity and determining appropriate capital allocation strategies. Management believes this measure is useful to investors to understand how the Company's core operating activities generate and use cash. Cash Flow Before Financing is defined as cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations plus cash provided by (used in) investing activities, adjusted for the purchase price of business acquisitions and net proceeds from the divestiture of discontinued operations and other significant businesses. Not all companies use identical calculations of Cash Flow Before Financing, therefore this presentation may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The calculation of Cash Flow Before Financing does not reflect cash used to service debt, pay dividends or repurchase shares and, therefore, does not necessarily reflect funds available for investment or other discretionary uses.
