Fuel Systems Solutions Reports Fourth Quarter And Year End 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: FSYS

Company Outlook

The Company expects full year 2013 revenue to be between $400 million and $420 million, 2013 gross margin of 21% to 23%, and 2013 operating margin of 2% to 4%. This outlook is based upon the following expectations:

  • Automotive operations – growth in OEM and DOEM programs, particularly in the US and Italy, combined with contributions from Thailand and Latin American automotive markets; partially offset by a slower transportation aftermarket given increasingly aggressive competition in developing countries and Eastern Europe.
  • Industrial operations – growth in APU market, aided by the launch of new battery products; slight growth in stationery equipment and mobile industrial markets overall with a mix of stable and weaker geographies.
  • A comparable margin performance in 2013 relative to 2012 as the Company focuses on achieving greater operational efficiencies given some margin compression expected from an increasingly competitive environment; continued selected investments in key leading edge technologies.

Non-GAAP Measures

To provide investors and others with additional information regarding Fuel Systems' results, in addition to the results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, in this press release, Fuel Systems presents adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the closest GAAP financial measure is presented in the financial tables below under the heading "Non-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE RECONCILIATION."Adjusted EBITDA is determined by adding the following items to Net Income, the closest GAAP financial measure: Net Income attributable to non-controlling interest; Depreciation & Amortization; Interest income, net; and Benefit (Provision) for Income Taxes and Impairments. Fuel Systems' management believes this non-GAAP financial measure offers additional insight into the Company's ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparisons and analysis of trends in the business, as it excludes certain non-cash items. This non-GAAP financial measure also can provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating Fuel Systems' operating results and future prospects when comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies. Fuel Systems may not define this non-GAAP financial measure in a manner similar to other companies.
