READING, Pa., Feb. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerSys (NYSE: ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, announced today results for its third quarter of fiscal 2023, which ended on January 1, 2023.

Message from the CEO

EnerSys had a strong third quarter of fiscal 2023, with record revenue of $920 million +9% year-over-year, even after absorbing ~$35 million of FX headwinds. GAAP operating earnings of $79 million, the second highest in the company's history, improved 53% over prior year, while adjusted operating earnings improved +41% over prior year, achieving a record of $85 million. Excluding the ~$6M FX headwinds, adjusted operating earnings was 50% higher than prior year. Demand and order trends for our products were robust across all of our end markets. Our backlog remains healthy at near historically high levels though down modestly for the second consecutive quarter as we delivered more products from our backlog thanks in part to an easing supply chain. We saw significant gross margin improvement, up 150 basis points sequentially to 23.2% despite the margin math pressure from continued unprecedented inflation. This trajectory was fueled by an impressive $32 million improvement in price/mix, accomplished across all segments of our business, which was partially offset by an additional $12 million of volume-adjusted costs – the second quarter in a row of price/mix outpacing costs. Against a backdrop of an easing but still unpredictable supply chain, tight labor markets, inflation, and foreign exchange headwinds, we achieved GAAP diluted EPS of $1.08 and adjusted diluted EPS of $1.27, above the midpoint of our adjusted diluted EPS guidance and up $0.26 versus prior year.

We continue to deliver on our innovation roadmap with proprietary technology solutions that are defining the future of the energy transition. We are excited to have received our first orders for wireless chargers and look forward to showcasing our maintenance-free battery and wireless charger solutions at both the ProMat and LogiMAT trade shows this Spring. We achieved another ESG disclosure milestone, publishing our first Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) report. Sustainability is embedded in our strategy and we are proud to be recognized as one of America's Most Responsible 'Technology Hardware' Companies 2023 by Newsweek.

We are increasingly optimistic that our strong Q3’23 results reflect the sustainable “next step” toward achieving our long-term financial and operational goals. While we are not out of the woods yet with inflation and supply chain unpredictability, demand remains strong with secular trends in our end markets that, along with a strong balance sheet and superior products and services, provide us a buffer from the impact of a potential economic pullback. We believe the steps we have taken over the past three years better position our business to benefit from global megatrends such as 5G, broadband expansion through the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF), data center growth, material handling electrification and automation, grid stabilization and electric vehicle fast charging, and provide near and long-term growth opportunities that are starting to materialize in our financial results and outlook. I am more excited than ever about the remainder of this year and fiscal 2024 as the true potential of our business begins to present itself.

David M. Shaffer, President and Chief Executive Officer, EnerSys

Summary of Results

Third Quarter 2023

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 were $920.2 million, an increase of 9.0% from the prior year third quarter net sales of $844.0 million and increased sequentially 2.3% from the second quarter of fiscal 2023 net sales of $899.4 million. The increase compared to prior year quarter was the result of an 8% increase in pricing and a 5% increase in organic growth, partially offset by a 4% decrease in foreign currency translation impact. The sequential increase was due to a 2% increase in pricing.

Net earnings attributable to EnerSys stockholders (“Net earnings”) for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 was $44.4 million, or $1.08 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $7.9 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, from highlighted items described in further detail in the tables shown below, reconciling non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts.

Net earnings for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was $36.3 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $6.7 million, or $0.16 per diluted share from highlighted items described in further detail in the tables shown below, reconciling non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts.

Excluding these highlighted items, adjusted Net earnings per diluted share for the third quarter of fiscal 2023, on a non-GAAP basis, were $1.27, compared to the guidance of $1.20 to $1.30 per diluted share for the third quarter given by the Company on November 9, 2022. These earnings compare to the prior year third quarter adjusted Net earnings of $1.01 per diluted share. Please refer to the section included herein under the heading “Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a discussion of the Company’s use of non-GAAP adjusted financial information, which includes tables reconciling GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted financial measures for the quarters ended January 1, 2023 and January 2, 2022.

Fiscal Year to Date 2023

Net sales for the nine months of fiscal 2023 were $2,718.6 million, an increase of 11.0% from the prior year nine months net sales of $2,450.3 million. This increase was due to an 8% increase in both pricing and organic volume, partially offset by a 5% decrease in foreign currency translation impact.

Net earnings for the nine months of fiscal 2023 was $109.9 million, or $2.66 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $35.5 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, from highlighted items described in further detail in the tables shown below, reconciling non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts.

Net earnings for the nine months of fiscal 2022 was $115.8 million, or $2.69 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $25.1 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, from highlighted items described in further detail in the tables shown below, reconciling non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts.

Adjusted Net earnings per diluted share for the nine months of fiscal 2023, on a non-GAAP basis, were $3.52. This compares to the prior year nine months adjusted Net earnings of $3.27 per diluted share. Please refer to the section included herein under the heading “Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a discussion of the Company’s use of non-GAAP adjusted financial information.


Fourth Quarter 2023 Outlook

We expect to continue to operate in a dynamic macro environment and anticipate FX and interest rate headwinds, an easing but still unpredictable supply chain, and European utility inflation to persist for some time. While demand for our products remains robust, we believe we will weather and potentially benefit from a slowdown due to large portions of our business that are cycle-independent as well as our significant cash flow generation during past recessionary periods. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023, we expect adjusted diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.33 to $1.43, reflecting sequential volume and price/mix improvement, strong demand trends and a healthy backlog. We expect our gross margin to be in the range of 22% - 24%. For the full year of fiscal 2023 we expect capital expenditures to be approximately $90 million.

Please refer to the section included herein under the heading “Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a discussion of the Company’s use of non-GAAP adjusted financial information.

Reconciliations of GAAP to 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 measures “adjusted Net earnings”, “adjusted Diluted EPS”, “adjusted operating earnings”, “adjusted EBITDA”, "adjusted EBITDA per credit agreement", "net debt", "net leverage ratio", “net sales at constant currency”, and "net sales growth rate at constant currency” as applicable, in their analysis of the Company's performance. Adjusted Net earnings and adjusted operating earnings measure, as used by EnerSys in past quarters and years, adjusts Net earnings and operating 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. Adjusted EBITDA is a key performance measure that our management uses to assess our operating performance. Because Adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis, we use this measure as an overall assessment of our performance, to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies and for business planning purposes. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest income, interest expense, other (income) expense net, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, further adjusted to exclude restructuring and exit activities, impairment of goodwill, indefinite-lived intangibles and other assets, acquisition activities and those charges and credits that are not directly related to operating unit performance. EBITDA is calculated as net income before interest income, interest expense, other (income) expense net, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA per credit agreement as net earnings determined in accordance with GAAP for interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and certain charges or credits as permitted by our credit agreements, that were recorded during the periods presented. We define non-GAAP net debt as total debt, finance lease obligations and letters of credit, net of all cash and cash equivalents, as defined in the Third Amended Credit Facility on the balance sheet as of the end of the most recent fiscal quarter. We define non-GAAP net leverage ratio as non-GAAP net debt divided by last twelve months non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA per credit agreement. We define non-GAAP constant currency net sales as total net sales excluding the effect of foreign exchange rate movements, and we use it to determine the constant currency growth rate on a year-on-year basis. Non-GAAP constant currency revenues are calculated by translating current period revenues using the prior comparative periods’ actual exchange rates, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current period. Constant currency net sales growth rate is calculated by determining the difference between current period non-GAAP constant currency net sales and current period reported net sales divided by prior period as reported net sales. Management believes the presentation of these financial measures 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 and overall business performance; in particular, those charges that the Company incurs as a result of restructuring activities, impairment of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangibles and other assets, acquisition activities and those charges and credits that are not directly related to operating unit performance, such as significant legal proceedings, amortization of Alpha and NorthStar related intangible assets and tax valuation allowance changes, including those related to the AHV (Old-Age and Survivors Insurance) Financing (TRAF) in Switzerland. 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 as helpful a measure of the performance of our underlying business, particularly in light of their unpredictable nature and are difficult to forecast. Although we exclude the amortization of purchased intangibles from these non-GAAP measures, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation.

Income tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments are calculated using the applicable statutory tax rate for the jurisdictions in which the charges (benefits) are incurred, while taking into consideration any valuation allowances. For those items which are non-taxable, the tax expense (benefit) is calculated at 0%.

EnerSys does not provide a quantitative reconciliation of the company’s projected range for adjusted diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 to diluted earnings per share, which is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, in reliance on the unreasonable efforts exception provided under Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K. EnerSys' adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 excludes certain items, including but not limited to certain non-cash, large and/or unpredictable charges and benefits, charges from restructuring and exit activities, impairment of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangibles, acquisition and disposition activities, legal judgments, settlements, or other matters, and tax positions, that are inherently uncertain and difficult to predict, can be dependent on future events that are less capable of being controlled or reliably predicted by management and are not part of the Company's routine operating activities can be dependent on future events that are less capable of being controlled or reliably predicted by management and are not part of the Company's routine operating activities. Due to the uncertainty of the occurrence or timing of these future excluded items, management cannot accurately forecast many of these items for internal use and therefore cannot create a quantitative adjusted diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 to diluted earnings per share reconciliation without unreasonable efforts.

These non-GAAP disclosures have limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for operating earnings, Net earnings or net income 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 are they 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.


A reconciliation of non-GAAP net sales and growth rates in constant currency are set forth in the table below, providing a reconciliation of non-GAAP constant currency net sales to the Company’s reported net sales for its business segments.
