THREE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2023
We posted sales of $10.7 billion for the third quarter of 2023, an increase of 15% over the third quarter of 2022, which compares to global light vehicle production that increased 4%, including 7% and 14% higher production in North America and Europe, respectively, and 2% lower production in China. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and acquisitions net of divestitures, sales increased 10%, largely reflecting the launch of new programs and higher global light vehicle production.
Adjusted EBIT increased to $615 million in the third quarter of 2023 compared to $452 million in the third quarter of 2022. Our ongoing focus on operational excellence and cost initiatives helped drive strong earnings on higher sales. In addition, the Adjusted EBIT increase mainly reflected higher customer recoveries net of production input costs and productivity and efficiency improvements, including lower costs at previously underperforming facilities, partially offset by the net unfavourable impact of commercial items, and acquisitions, net of divestitures.
Income from operations before income taxes increased to $538 million for the third quarter of 2023 compared to $400 million in the third quarter of 2022. Included in income from operations before income taxes were other (income) expense, net items and amortization of acquired intangibles totaling $28 million and $34 million in the third quarters of 2023 and 2022, respectively. Excluding other (income) expense, net and amortization of acquired intangibles from both periods, income from operations before income taxes increased $132 million in the third quarter of 2023 compared to the third quarter of 2022.
Net income attributable to Magna International Inc. was $394 million for the third quarter of 2023 compared to $289 million in the third quarter of 2022. Included in net income attributable to Magna International Inc. were other (income) expense, net items and amortization of acquired intangibles totaling $25 million after tax and income attributable to non-controlling interests in the third quarter of 2023, compared to $28 million after tax and income attributable to non-controlling interests in the third quarter of 2022. Excluding other (income) expense, net and amortization of acquired intangibles after tax from both periods, net income attributable to Magna International Inc. increased $105 million in the third quarter of 2023 compared to the third quarter of 2022.
Diluted earnings per share was $1.37 in the third quarter of 2023, compared to $1.00 in the comparable period. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $1.46 compared to $1.10 for the third quarter of 2022.
In the third quarter of 2023, we generated cash from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities of $797 million and used $24 million in operating assets and liabilities. Investment activities for the third quarter of 2023 included $630 million in fixed asset additions, $176 million in investments, other assets and intangible assets and $7 million in private equity investments.
NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2023
We posted sales of $32.3 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, an increase of 14% over the nine months ended September 30, 2022, as global light vehicle production increased 8%.
Adjusted EBIT increased to $1.7 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 compared to $1.3 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, primarily due to earnings on higher sales, higher customer recoveries net of production input costs, productivity and efficiency improvements, including lower costs at previously underperforming facilities and higher equity income, partially offset by acquisitions, net of divestitures, the net unfavourable impact of commercial items and higher launch, engineering, and other costs associated with the launch of new assembly business.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, income from operations before income taxes was $1.3 billion, net income attributable to Magna International Inc. was $942 million and diluted earnings per share was $3.29, increases of $564 million, $445 million, and $1.59, respectively, each compared to the first nine months of 2022.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 26% to $4.15, compared to the first nine months of 2022.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, we generated cash from operations before changes in operating assets and liabilities of $2.27 billion and invested $697 million in operating assets and liabilities. Investment activities for the first nine months of 2023 included $1.48 billion to purchase Veoneer Active Safety, $1.56 billion in fixed asset additions, a $373 million increase in investments, other assets and intangible assets and $10 million in public and private equity investments.
RETURN OF CAPITAL
During the three months ended September 30, 2023, we paid $128 million in dividends.
Our Board of Directors declared a third quarter dividend of $0.46 per Common Share, payable on December 1, 2023 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 17, 2023.

Our Outlook above reflects the impact of the UAW labour strike at certain customers.
Our Outlook is intended to provide information about management's current expectations and plans and may not be appropriate for other purposes. Although considered reasonable by Magna as of the date of this document, the 2023 Outlook above and the underlying assumptions may prove to be inaccurate. Accordingly, our actual results could differ materially from our expectations as set forth herein. The risks identified in the “Forward-Looking Statements” section below represent the primary factors which we believe could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations.
Key Drivers of Our Business
Our operating results are primarily dependent on the levels of North American, European, and Chinese car and light truck production by our customers. While we supply systems and components to every major original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”), we do not supply systems and components for every vehicle, nor is the value of our content consistent from one vehicle to the next. As a result, customer and program mix relative to market trends, as well as the value of our content on specific vehicle production programs, are also important drivers of our results.
OEM production volumes are generally aligned with vehicle sales levels and thus affected by changes in such levels. Aside from vehicle sales levels, production volumes are typically impacted by a range of factors, including: general economic and political conditions; labour disruptions; free trade arrangements; tariffs; relative currency values; commodities prices; supply chains and infrastructure; availability and relative cost of skilled labour; regulatory considerations, including those related to environmental emissions and safety standards; and other factors. Additionally, COVID-19 can impact vehicle production volumes, including through: mandatory stay-at-home orders which restrict production; elevated employee absenteeism; and supply chain disruptions.
Overall vehicle sales levels are significantly affected by changes in consumer confidence levels, which may in turn be impacted by consumer perceptions and general trends related to the job, housing, and stock markets, as well as other macroeconomic and political factors. Other factors which typically impact vehicle sales levels and thus production volumes include: interest rates and/or availability of credit; fuel and energy prices; relative currency values; regulatory restrictions on use of vehicles in certain megacities; and other factors. Additionally, COVID-19 can impact vehicle sales, including through mandatory stay-at-home orders which restrict operations of car dealerships, as well as through a deterioration in consumer confidence.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES RECONCILIATION
Effective July 1, 2023, we revised our calculations of Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted diluted earnings per share to exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets. Revenue generated from acquired intangible assets is included within revenue in determining net income attributable to Magna. We believe that excluding the amortization of acquired intangible assets from these Non-GAAP measures helps management and investors in understanding our underlying performance and improves comparability between our segmented results of operations and our peers.
The historical presentation of these Non-GAAP measures within this press release has also been updated to reflect the revised calculations.
The following table reconciles net income to Adjusted EBIT:
|THREE MONTHS ENDED|

|Amortization of acquired intangible assets||32||11||57||35|

Certain of the forward-looking financial measures above are provided on a Non-GAAP basis. We do not provide a reconciliation of such forward-looking measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. To do so would be potentially misleading and not practical given the difficulty of projecting items that are not reflective of on-going operations in any future period. The magnitude of these items, however, may be significant.
