Goodyear Tire: An Illusory Bargain

Goodyear is approximately fairly priced based upon my estimates of its normalized post-pandemic FCF. Management's projection for earnings and FCF is only readily achievable with an expansion in domestic market share. The potential for outsized gains on GT stock is largely premised on management's ability to revert its historically poor operating performance. Investment Thesis Many have posited that Goodyear Tire (GT) is incredibly undervalued at present levels when pre-pandemic normalized earnings are taken into account. In addition, the recent Cooper Tire acquisition is set to contribute to the company’s earnings. However, when one takes into account the > $1.5 billion in debt incurred during the pandemic to undertake the Cooper Tire acquisition and to ensure liquidity needs were met, one may begin to question if the company’s already poor balance sheet can handle such additional debt. In addition, GT was in decline before the pandemic, with consecutively lower revenue, earnings, and FCF annually. Given these risks and the company’s current market capitalization, it is my opinion that Goodyear Tire is fairly valued at present levels. Background The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is an international leader in tire manufacturing, with operations in most regions around the world. Since the stock’s peak in 2017 at a share price of > $35, its stock has declined to around $12. The driver of these poor results has predominantly been poor operating performance. However, on June 7, 2021, GT acquired Cooper Tire ((CTB)) for an enterprise value of $2.5 billion. Combining GT and CTB revenues, the new company will produce $17.5 billion in revenue according to GT’s management. With the acquisition of Cooper Tires, GT will solidify its position as the third-largest tire manufacturer by revenue in the world. With the acquisition of Cooper and a rebound from the pandemic, the company’s earnings rebounded to $764 million and its revenue increased approximately 42% to $17.48 billion. Prior to the acquisition of CTB and the coronavirus pandemic, GT’s revenue had been declining by 2.7% a year from 2016 to 2019. In addition, its earnings had declined from $1.26 billion in 2016 to a loss of $311 million in 2019. The pandemic exacerbated the company’s woes and the company posted a loss of $1.25 billion in 2020. However, FCF remained positive during the pandemic and even increased by 7%. The company’s normalized pre-pandemic FCF was incredibly volatile but averaged approximately $345 million. Cooper Tire Acquisition Prior to the acquisition, Goodyear was the third-largest tire company. After its acquisition of Cooper Tire, the world’s 13th largest tire company, it will solidify its position as the world’s third largest tire company. The combined company will have a total of $17.5 billion in revenue, $1 billion in operating income, and a 5.7% operating margin. Global Tire Market Ranking by Revenue (Cooper Tire Acquisition Presentation) Cooper Tire is a leading tire company in North America in particular, being its fifth-largest manufacturer, but it also maintains a global presence. In fact, 18% of its sales occur in Europe and Asia, with the remaining 82% of revenue from the Americas. This is important as the US tire industry’s growth is much slower than emerging markets’ tire industries. Independent from GT, Cooper Tire has $2.8 billion in revenue and 10,000 employees. Goodyear’s management claims its FCF is $437 million, although my estimation is $345 million, and Cooper’s FCF is approximately $88 million according to Goodyear management. By these estimates, the combined FCF of the two entities would be $525 million. Management estimates that the cost synergies from the acquisition will approximate $165 million, leaving the combined entity with $690 million in FCF per year. Using my conservative estimate of Goodyear’s present FCF, this figure would be $598 million. Therefore, even when the dilution of 46.06 million shares is taken into account, this acquisition was still immediately accretive to Goodyear’s shareholders and still leaves potential upside when future cost synergies are taken into account. Pro Forma Company Highlights (Cooper Tire Acquisition Presentation) Industry Prospects The North American tire market shrunk in 2020 largely due to Covid. However, for 2021-2026, the North American tire market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 1.9% according to Orion Market Research. While this moderate growth may seem satisfactory for a company trading at a normalized FCF multiple (based on my estimates) of < 10, its revenue growth (excluding the acquisition of Cooper Tire) has been nonexistent. This revenue trajectory may revert itself or eventually stagnate, conservative investors cannot solely rely on mean reversion to anticipate future operating results. This is why it is crucial that Goodyear maintain and expand its sales internationally. The anticipated CAGR for the global tire market is 4.2%, making GT’s international operations poised for growth. Given that the sales from outside the Americas will constitute 42% of the combined entities’ revenue, it seems a reasonable assumption that as GT’s international sales continue to increase relative to its domestic revenue, revenue stabilization and potential growth may materialize. This would indubitably lead to multiple expansion for the beleaguered stock. Pro Forma Post-Acquisition Sales (Cooper Tire Acquisition Presentation) Balance Sheet
