Sales for the quarter rose 25% to $1.9bn. Higher production volumes and ongoing operating improvements enabled Dana to achieve an adjusted EBITDA margin of 10.4% compared to 10.1% in both Q1 2011 and Q2 2010. Earnings per share (EPS) were $0.45, compared to $0.21.

"Our second-quarter results show continued and overall positive momentum in our business units and our markets," said president and CEO Roger Wood.

Net income for the first half ended 30 June, 2011, was $91m, excluding $53m of one-time charges associated with the refinancing and restructuring of debt in January; this compared with a net loss of $22m in the first half of 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of the year was $382m, up $120m year on year. Sales were $3.7bn, up $700m.
