  • The Company is raising its sales growth guidance for full-year 2012 to the low-20% range over the prior year, which represents an increase from the high-teens growth rate previously expected. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA for the full-year 2012 is now expected to increase in the high-teens range over the prior year, which is an increase from the mid-teens growth rate previously expected.

“Our second quarter results continue to demonstrate the progress we are making in executing our Powering Ahead strategic plan,” said Aaron Jagdfeld, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Growth in shipments of home standby and portable generators were again strong during the second quarter. In particular, the market for our home standby generators continues to develop as more home owners discover the importance of having backup power. In our commercial and industrial products, Magnum continues to perform well as demand for mobile equipment is benefiting from a shift towards renting versus buying. In addition, while still a smaller portion of the overall C&I market, our leadership position in natural gas backup generators within North America has allowed us to benefit from the increased demand for these products.”
