1. Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
On October 31, 2016, Adient plc ("Adient") became an independent company as a result of the separation of the automotive seating and interiors business (the "separation") from Johnson Controls International plc ("the former Parent"). Adient was incorporated under the laws of Ireland in fiscal 2016 for the purpose of holding these businesses. Adient's ordinary shares began trading "regular-way" under the ticker symbol "ADNT" on the New York Stock Exchange on October 31, 2016. Upon becoming an independent company, the capital structure of Adient consisted of 500 million authorized ordinary shares and 100 million authorized preferred shares (par value of $0.001 per ordinary and preferred share). The number of Adient ordinary shares issued on October 31, 2016 was 93,671,810.
Adient is a global leader in the automotive seating supplier industry. Adient has a leading market position in the Americas, Europe and China, and has longstanding relationships with the largest global original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs, in the automotive space. Adient's proprietary technologies extend into virtually every area of automotive seating solutions, including complete seating systems, frames, mechanisms, foam, head restraints, armrests and trim covers. Adient is an independent seat supplier with global scale and the capability to design, develop, engineer, manufacture, and deliver complete seat systems and components in every major automotive producing region in the world.
The consolidated financial statements of Adient have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). During fiscal 2020, Adient faced an unprecedented situation with the coronavirus pandemic identified in late 2019 ("COVID-19") and the related significant interruption it had on Adient's operations. Adient's China facilities (including both consolidated and non-consolidated joint ventures) were effectively shut down during the lunar New Year festival (at the end of January 2020) and returned to operations by the end of March 2020. Beginning in late March 2020, Adient experienced the shutdown of effectively all of its facilities in the Americas and European regions coinciding with the shutdown of its customer facilities in those regions. Adient also experienced the shutdown of approximately 50% of its plants in Asia (outside China) during late March and early April 2020. During May and June 2020, production started to resume in the Americas, European and Asia (outside China) regions concurrent with Adient's customers resuming operations and production continued to ramp up throughout Adient’s fiscal fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 in all regions in line with customer production. Virtually all of Adient's plants had resumed production by the end of first quarter of fiscal 2021. During the second half of fiscal 2021, Adient faced, along with the entire global automotive industry, widespread supply chain disruptions primarily related to semiconductor chip shortages. Although Adient’s seating products are not highly dependent directly on semiconductor chips, Adient is directly impacted by the lower production levels at OEM’s as a direct result of these supply chain disruptions. These disruptions have led to unplanned down time at Adient’s production facilities, often with very little warning, which creates operating inefficiencies and limits Adient’s ability to adequately mitigate such inefficiencies.
