(1)Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted diluted earnings per share and Adjusted EBIT as a percentage of sales are Non-GAAP financial measures that have no standardized meaning under U.S. GAAP, and as a result may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures by other companies. A reconciliation of these Non-GAAP financial measures is included in the back of this press release.
(2) 2017 amounts included in this Press Release have been adjusted for our adoption of the new revenue standard (Accounting Standard Codification 606) and recast for our new reportable segments.
THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2018
We posted sales of $10.79 billion for the first quarter of 2018, an increase of 21% over the first quarter of 2017. The strong growth was achieved despite light vehicle production that declined 2% in North America and was essentially unchanged in Europe, both compared to the first quarter of 2017. We delivered sales growth in each of our operating segments, most notably in our Complete Vehicles segment, which contributed approximately 60% of the increase in sales in the first quarter of 2018. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and net divestitures, sales increased 14%.
Adjusted EBIT increased 7% to $875 million in the first quarter of 2018 resulting in an adjusted EBIT as a percentage of sales of 8.1% in the first quarter of 2018 compared to 9.2% in the first quarter of 2017. This margin decline was largely driven by an increase in the proportion of sales generated in our Complete Vehicles segment, which have a significantly lower margin as a percentage of sales than our consolidated average, as well as higher launch costs.
Income from operations before income taxes and net income attributable to Magna International Inc. were $851 million and $660 million for the first quarter of 2018, increases of 7% and 14%, respectively, compared to the first quarter of 2017.
Diluted earnings per share increased 21% to $1.83 in the first quarter of 2018, reflecting higher income from operations before income taxes, a lower income tax rate primarily as a result of U.S. tax reform, and the favourable impact of a reduced share count. Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 20% to $1.84 compared to $1.53 for the first quarter of 2017.
In the first quarter of 2018, we generated cash from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities of $1.03 billion, and invested $455 million in operating assets and liabilities. Investment activities for the first quarter of 2018 were $357 million, including $243 million in fixed asset additions and a $114 million increase in investments, other assets and intangible assets.
"We had a strong start to the year, reporting record first quarter results and increasing our outlook for sales and earnings. We continue to position Magna for the emerging mobility ecosystem as demonstrated by the recently announced partnership with Lyft."
- Don Walker, Magna's Chief Executive Officer
