Information to be included in the report

Item 7.01.    Regulation FD Disclosure
As previously disclosed, EnerSys was a part of proceedings in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware opposing an attempt by Exide Technologies to reject agreements, dating back to 1991, which, among other things, gave EnerSys the right to use the Exide name on industrial batteries.

On April 3, 2006, the Bankruptcy Court ruled that the Exide name will revert back to Exide Technologies, subject to a two year transition period "to mitigate any potential damage and business disruption" that EnerSys may suffer as a result of the Bankruptcy Court's decision and has scheduled a hearing to create a plan to carry out the transition.

EnerSys respectfully disagrees with the Bankruptcy Court's decision for exclusive use of the Exide name in the industrial battery market to revert back to Exide Technologies and is presently reviewing its alternatives, including seeking to stay and appeal the Bankruptcy Court's order to the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.

In any event, as previously disclosed, assuming that the details of a transition plan which the Bankruptcy Court and the parties fashion is reasonable, the Company believes that the reversion of the Exide name to Exide Technologies should not have a material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
