Generac Provides Update On Third Quarter 2012 Results And Raises Outlook For Full-Year 2012

Generac Holdings Inc. (NYSE: GNRC), a leading designer and manufacturer of generators and other engine powered products, today announced that it expects strong financial results for the third quarter of 2012, and as a result is raising its outlook for full-year 2012.

During the third quarter of 2012, the Company has experienced increased demand for home standby and portable generators as a result of the recent major power outage events as well as expanded marketing and sales initiatives to increase home standby penetration. As a result of the increased demand, net sales during the third quarter of 2012 are expected to be in the range of $295.0 to $300.0 million. Net income is expected to be between $21.5 to $25.0 million, with diluted net income per common share of $0.31 to $0.36. Adjusted net income is expected to be between $49.5 to $53.0 million, with adjusted diluted net income per common share of $0.72 to $0.77. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $72.0 to $75.0 million.

Due to this outperformance for residential product sales, full-year 2012 total net sales are now expected to increase in the low-30% range over the prior year, which represents an increase from the low-20% range growth rate previously expected. As a result of this higher sales outlook, adjusted EBITDA for the full-year 2012 is now expected to increase in the mid-30% range over the prior year, which is an increase from the mid-teens growth rate previously expected. Diluted net income per common share for 2012 is expected to be in the range of $1.02 to $1.08, with adjusted diluted net income per common share of $2.65 to $2.70. This updated guidance continues to assume no material changes in the macroeconomic environment, as well as no additional major power outage events during the remainder of 2012.
