Additional commercial and operational actions are planned over the next two years with the goal of achieving and sustaining double-digit returns on invested capital."

The year-over-year change in third quarter sales was primarily attributable to the divestiture of certain businesses in India and Europe at the beginning of the quarter as well as other unfavorable volume and mix, primarily in North America and Europe. These impacts were partially offset by favorable volume and mix in Asia.

Net income for the third quarter 2020 included restructuring charges of $6.2 million and other special items. Net loss for the third quarter 2019 included restructuring charges of $5.6 million, impairment charges of $2.0 million and other special items. Adjusted net income, which excludes these items and their related tax impact, was $3.6 million in the third quarter 2020 compared to $3.8 million in the third quarter of 2019. The year-over-year change was due to higher accrued incentive compensation expense, unfavorable volume and mix, higher interest expense and general inflation, largely offset by operating efficiencies, lower SGA&E expense and the positive impacts of ongoing cost saving initiatives.

Adjusted net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted earnings (loss) per diluted share and free cash flow are non-GAAP measures. Reconciliations to the most directly comparable financial measures, calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("U.S. GAAP"), are provided in the attached supplemental schedules.

New Business Awards

During the third quarter of 2020, the Company received net new business awards representing an incremental $70 million in anticipated future annualized sales.

Further, positive momentum for the Company's innovation products continues. Third quarter new contract awards related to innovation products, including both new and converted replacement business, totaled approximately $69 million in anticipated future annualized sales. These awards are related to the Company's commercialized innovation products such as MagAlloy™, Gen III Posi-Lock™, Easy-Lock™, EPDM Microdense and TP Microdense and are based on customer forecast volumes. Additionally, the Company has introduced new technologies through our i3 innovation process that are supporting future pursuits with Fortrex™, FlushSeal, TUROS™, PC2000™ and next generation connection technologies.

The calculation of "net new business" and "new contract awards related to innovation products" does not reflect customer price reductions on existing programs and may be impacted by various assumptions embedded in the respective calculation, including actual vehicle production levels on new programs, foreign exchange rates and the timing of major program launches.

Continuing Execution of Cost Reduction and Strategic Initiatives

The Company remains focused on reducing ongoing costs through improved operating efficiency and the further rightsizing of its operating footprint and overhead expenses. As previously announced, two manufacturing facilities and one technical facility were scheduled to be closed in 2020. During the third quarter, an additional technical facility was added to the list of planned closures in 2020. One of the manufacturing plant closures has been completed. The closure of the second manufacturing facility and the two technical facilities are on track to be completed later this year.

Also as previously announced, the Company finalized the divestiture of certain non-strategic assets and operations in Europe and India during the third quarter. In 2019, these operations had combined revenue of approximately $200 million, adjusted EBITDA loss of approximately $14 million and negative cash flow of approximately $20 million. As a result, the transaction has already had a positive impact on Company earnings and is expected to be positive for future earnings and cash flow. This transaction was consistent with the Company's stated strategic guideline to fix or exit unprofitable businesses.

Cash and Liquidity

At September 30, 2020, Cooper Standard had cash and cash equivalents totaling $462.7 million. In addition to cash and cash equivalents, the Company had $150.2 million available under its amended senior asset-based revolving credit facility ("ABL"), inclusive of outstanding letters of credit, for total liquidity of $612.9 million at September 30, 2020. Based on our current expectations for light vehicle production and customer demand for our products, we expect our current strong cash balance and access to flexible credit facilities will provide sufficient resources to support ongoing operations and the execution of planned strategic initiatives for the next 12 months.

Outlook

Following unprecedented disruption in early 2020, the automotive industry experienced a strong rebound in sales and production in the third quarter. Current expectations for light vehicle production in the fourth quarter is positive in Asia and Europe, but sequentially softer in North America, in line with typical seasonal patterns. A high degree of uncertainty remains in the global economy generally and the automotive industry specifically as COVID-19 cases are once again increasing in various regions around the world. In this unusually dynamic environment, the Company is not issuing formal financial guidance. Cooper Standard's leadership team remains positive, however, regarding the progress the Company is making in its stated objective to improve returns on invested capital over the next two years.

Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, net debt and free cash flow are measures not recognized under U.S. GAAP and which exclude certain non-cash and special items that may obscure trends and operating performance not indicative of the Company's core financial activities. Management considers EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, net debt and free cash flow to be key indicators of the Company's operating performance and believes that these and similar measures are widely used by investors, securities analysts and other interested parties in evaluating the Company's performance. In addition, similar measures are utilized in the calculation of the financial covenants and ratios contained in the Company's financing arrangements and management uses these measures for developing internal budgets and forecasting purposes. EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to reflect income tax expense (benefit), interest expense net of interest income, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted to reflect certain items that management does not consider to be reflective of the Company's core operating performance. Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to reflect certain items that management does not consider to be reflective of the Company's core operating performance. Adjusted basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share is defined as adjusted net income (loss) divided by the weighted average number of basic and diluted shares, respectively, outstanding during the period. Net debt is defined as total debt minus cash and cash equivalents. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures and is useful to both management and investors in evaluating the Company's ability to service and repay its debt.

When analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should use EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, net debt and free cash flow as supplements to, and not as alternatives for, net income (loss), operating income, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and not as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of the Company's liquidity. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, net debt and free cash flow have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of the Company's results of operations as reported under U.S. GAAP. Other companies may report EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share, net debt and free cash flow differently and therefore the Company's results may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. In addition, in evaluating adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss), it should be noted that in the future the Company may incur expenses similar to or in excess of the adjustments in the below presentation. This presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss) should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by special items. Reconciliations of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss) and free cash flow follow.
