Exide Technologies Reports Operating Income Up 36% For Its Fiscal 2011 Third Quarter

Looking Ahead

Bolch said, "Virtually all of our markets continue to show improving trends. We are also pleased with the customer wins we have announced recently, some of which will positively impact the fourth quarter. In spite of higher lead costs as we entered our fiscal fourth quarter, we anticipate Adjusted EBITDA for the final quarter of fiscal 2011 will exceed results for the prior year comparable period."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a key measure of its operational financial performance. This measure is the key indicator of the Company's operational performance and excludes the impact of the Company's restructuring actions. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and restructuring charges. The Company's Adjusted EBITDA definition also adjusts reported earnings for the effect of non-cash currency remeasurement gains or losses, the non-cash gain or loss from revaluation of the Company's warrants liability, impairment charges and non-cash gains or losses on asset sales. Please refer to the reconciliations of net loss to EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA below.

The Company calculates Adjusted Net Income or Loss and Adjusted Earnings or Loss Per Share by excluding from net income (loss) per diluted share certain items, such as non-cash tax valuation allowances, reorganization items related to the Company's prior bankruptcy proceedings and the non-cash gain or loss from revaluation of the Company's warrants liability. The Company also excludes the impact of restructuring and impairment charges incurred to improve its relative cost position when compared with the competition. Further, non-cash currency remeasurement gains and losses have been excluded as these are the result of financing as opposed to operating decisions.

The Company believes that these measures are useful to investors and management because they allow investors to evaluate the Company's performance for different periods on a more comparable basis by excluding these non-operational items that the Company believes are not indicative of, or may obscure trends useful in evaluating, the Company's continuing operations. This supplemental presentation should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by similar adjustments to net income (loss) per share determined in accordance with GAAP.
