EnerSys Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

READING, Pa., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EnerSys (NYSE: ENS) the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, announced today results for its second quarter of fiscal 2013, which ended on September 30, 2012.

Net earnings attributable to EnerSys stockholders ("Net earnings") for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $43.8 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, including an unfavorable net of tax impact of $0.02 per share from a charge of $1.0 million for restructuring plans. The net earnings of $0.90 per diluted share, compares to diluted net earnings per share of $0.57 for the second quarter of fiscal 2012, which included an unfavorable net of tax impact of $0.01 per share from a charge of $0.7 million for restructuring plans and $0.4 million for fees related to acquisition activities, partially offset by a $0.6 million legal settlement income.

Excluding these highlighted items, adjusted net earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, on a non-GAAP basis was $0.92, which exceeds the guidance of $0.85 to $0.89 per diluted share given by the Company on August 8, 2012. These earnings compare to the prior year second quarter adjusted net earnings of $0.58 per diluted share. Please refer to the section included herein under the heading "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a discussion of the Company's use of non-GAAP adjusted financial information.

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were a second quarter record $554.2 million, an increase of 1% from the prior year second quarter net sales of $547.2 million. The 1% increase was the result of a 2% increase in organic volume, 4% increase from acquisitions, a 4% decrease from foreign currency translation impact and a 1% decrease due to pricing. Sequential quarterly sales decreased 7% from the first quarter of fiscal 2013 net sales of $593.9 million due to a 6% decrease in organic volume and a 1% decrease due to pricing.

The Company's operating results for its business segments for the second quarters of fiscal 2013 and 2012 are as follows:

"During our second quarter we achieved record second quarter sales and operating earnings and reached our gross profit percentage target of 25% for the second consecutive quarter," stated John D. Craig, chairman, president and chief executive officer of EnerSys. "I am very pleased with our second quarter adjusted earnings of $0.92 per diluted share."

Mr. Craig added, "Our third quarter guidance for adjusted net earnings per diluted share is between $0.77 to $0.81, which excludes the expected charge of $0.08 from our restructuring programs and acquisition expenses. Recently, we experienced a slowing in our order intake which we expect will lead to a sequential reduction in our third quarter sales.  If we continue to experience softness in our global markets we plan to take actions similar to those we took in 2009 to take costs out of our businesses, including additional restructuring programs, with the objective of improving longer term profitability." 


Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures  
This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, "GAAP". EnerSys' management uses the non-GAAP measure "adjusted net earnings" in their analysis of the Company's performance. This measure, as used by EnerSys in past quarters and years, adjusts net earnings determined in accordance with GAAP to reflect changes in financial results associated with the Company's restructuring initiatives and other highlighted charges and income items. Management believes the presentation of this financial measure reflecting these non-GAAP adjustments provides important supplemental information in evaluating the operating results of the Company as distinct from results that include items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results; in particular, those charges that the Company incurs as a result of restructuring activities and those charges and credits that are not directly related to operating unit performance, such as fees and expenses related to acquisition activities. Because these charges are not incurred as a result of ongoing operations or are incurred as a result of a potential acquisition, they are not a helpful measure of the performance of our underlying business. This non-GAAP disclosure has limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for net earnings determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Management believes that this non-GAAP supplemental information will be helpful in understanding the Company's ongoing operating results. This supplemental presentation should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by similar adjustments to net earnings determined in accordance with GAAP.

Included below is a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts.  Non-GAAP adjusted net earnings are calculated excluding restructuring and other highlighted charges and credits. The following tables provide additional information regarding certain non-GAAP measures:

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated.

It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
