 EnerSys Reports Preliminary Fourth Quarter and Full Year Fiscal 2016 Results and Announces Quarterly Conference Call
   Thursday, May 05, 2016 4:15:00 PM ET

EnerSys (ENS ) the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, announced today preliminary results for its fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2016, which ended on March 31, 2016.

Please note that these results are preliminary and while management expects them to be our final results, they could change.

Net earnings attributable to EnerSys stockholders ("Net Earnings") for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 are expected to be $9.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, including an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $36.2 million or $0.82 per share from non-cash charges relating to impairment of goodwill and other assets, as well as, cash and non-cash charges or credits from our restructuring plans and other highlighted items described in further detail below.

The expected Net Earnings of $0.21 per diluted share compares to Net Earnings of $0.57 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $27.2 million or $0.58 per share from non-cash charges relating to impairment of goodwill and other assets, as well as, cash and non-cash charges or credits from our restructuring plans and other highlighted items.

Excluding these highlighted items, adjusted Net Earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, on a non-GAAP basis, are expected to be $1.03, which would exceed the guidance of $0.98 to $1.02 per diluted share given by the Company on January 28, 2016. These earnings compare to the prior year fourth quarter adjusted Net Earnings of $1.15 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 which include tables reconciling GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted financial measures for the quarters and fiscal years ended March 31, 2016 and 2015.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 were $611.4 million, a decrease of 3% from the prior year fourth quarter net sales of $629.9 million and a 7% sequential quarterly increase from the third quarter of fiscal 2016 net sales of $573.6 million. The 3% decrease was largely the result of a 2% decrease each in organic volume and foreign currency translation impact, partially offset by an increase of 1% from acquisitions.

Net Earnings for the twelve months of fiscal 2016 are expected to be $136.2 million, or $2.99 per diluted share, including an unfavorable net of tax impact of $42.2 million or $0.94 per share from non-cash charges relating to impairment of goodwill and other assets, as well as, cash and non-cash charges or credits from our restructuring plans and other highlighted items.

Net Earnings for the twelve months of fiscal 2015 were $181.2 million, or $3.77 per diluted share, including an unfavorable impact from highlighted charges of $26.5 million or $0.55 per share from non-cash charges relating to impairment of goodwill and other assets, as well as, cash and non-cash charges or credits from our restructuring plans and other highlighted items.

Adjusted Net Earnings per diluted share for the twelve months of fiscal 2016, on a non-GAAP basis, are expected to be $3.93 and compares to $4.32 per diluted share for the twelve months of fiscal 2015.

Net sales for the twelve months of fiscal 2016 were $2,316.2 million, a decrease of 8% compared to the net sales of $2,505.5 million in fiscal 2015. The 8% decrease was the result of a 7% decrease due to foreign currency translation impact and a 2% decrease in organic volume, partially offset by a 1% increase from acquisitions.

The impairment charges described above resulted from our annual goodwill impairment testing and these charges reflect that certain reporting units have projected cash flows that are insufficient to support their existing carrying values for goodwill and other indefinite-lived assets.

"Our full year adjusted Net Earnings per diluted share were $3.93," stated David M. Shaffer, President and Chief Executive Officer of EnerSys. "As we finished fiscal year 2016 the vast majority of our businesses were operating above target. Management is keenly focused on the improvement of the under-performing units."

Mr. Shaffer added, "Our first quarter of fiscal 2017 guidance for adjusted Net Earnings per diluted share is between $1.08 and $1.12, which excludes an expected charge of $0.04 from our ongoing restructuring programs, ERP system implementation and acquisition expenses. We anticipate that sequential revenue will be flat to slightly higher."

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, impairment of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangibles and other assets and those charges and credits that are not directly related to operating unit performance, such as fees and expenses related to acquisition activities, stock-based compensation of senior executives, significant legal proceedings, ERP system implementation and tax valuation allowance changes. Because these charges are not incurred as a result of ongoing operations or are incurred as a result of a potential or previous acquisition, they are not a helpful measure of the performance of our underlying business particularly in light of their unpredictable nature. 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 preliminary 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:
