Fourth Quarter Net Sales of $96,670,000 Net Income of $1,704,000 or $0.04 Per Diluted Common Share

WOOD DALE, Ill., Feb. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Power Solutions International, Inc. (Nasdaq:PSIX), a leader in the design, engineer and manufacture of emissions-certified alternative-fuel and conventional power systems, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2015.

Fourth Quarter 2015 Results

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2015 were $96,670,000 compared to $103,910,000 in the fourth quarter of 2014 and $112,008,000 in the third quarter of 2015.  The sales decline in the current quarter was driven by a reduction of approximately $38.8 million from the oil and gas end market. This decline was partially offset by increased revenue in the quarter of approximately $21.7 million in the Company's on-road end market, including sales from Powertrain Integration, LLC, acquired on May 19, 2015.

Operating loss of $738,000 in the current quarter compares to operating income of $9,111,000 in the fourth quarter of 2014 and $1,388,000 in the third quarter of 2015.  Operating expense in the fourth quarter of 2015 includes transaction costs of approximately $393,000 ($236,000 after tax or $0.02 per diluted common share) incurred in connection with the acquisitions made in the second quarter. Excluding transaction costs related to acquisitions, operating loss was $345,000 in the fourth quarter of 2015. Operating expense in the fourth quarter of 2014 did not include any such transaction costs.

Other (income) expense for the fourth quarter of 2015 includes non-cash income of $1,259,000 resulting from a decrease in the estimated fair value of the liability associated with the warrants issued in the Company's April 2011 private placement.

The Company recognized an income tax benefit in the fourth quarter of 2015 which includes an estimated benefit of $1,200,000 resulting from the recognition of a federal research tax credit for the full year ended 2015.  The credit resulted from the reinstatement of the research tax credit with the passage of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes of 2015 on December 18, 2015.  Under GAAP, the entirety of the 2015 credit was recognized during the Company's fourth quarter.  If normalized across the quarters, approximately $900,000 of the total federal research tax credit recognized in the fourth quarter of 2015 would have been recognized ratably during the first three quarterly periods preceding the fourth quarter of 2015.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2015, which includes the warrant revaluation adjustment, federal research tax credit, contingent consideration revaluation and transaction costs, was $1,704,000, or $0.04 per diluted common share.  This compares to net income of $10,321,000 or $0.48 per diluted common share for the fourth quarter of 2014, which included a warrant revaluation adjustment and contingent consideration revaluation.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2015, adjusted to remove the warrant revaluation impact, federal research tax credits, contingent consideration revaluation and transaction costs, was a loss of $160,000, or $0.01 per diluted common share.  This compares to adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2014 of $5,307,000, or $0.48 per diluted common share, which has been adjusted to remove the warrant revaluation impact and contingent consideration revaluation.
Summary of Diluted EPS Attributable to Common Stockholders "Adjusted" removes the Q4 2015 impact of transaction costs, federal research tax credits and contingent consideration revaluation and the Q4 2014 impact of contingent consideration revaluation

Full Year 2015 Results

Net sales for 2015 were $389,446,000, an increase of 12%, from $347,995,000 for 2014. Net income for 2015 was $14,278,000, or $0.45 per diluted common share, compared to net income for 2014 of $23,726,000, or $1.58 per diluted common share.  Acquisition costs in 2015 include after tax transaction costs of approximately $662,000 and after tax inventory step up amortization costs of approximately $323,000.  Similar acquisition costs in 2014 include after tax transaction costs of approximately $487,000 and after tax inventory step up amortization costs of approximately $289,000.  Adjusted net income for 2015 was $5,670,000 or $0.51 per diluted common share, compared to $15,739,000, or $1.41 per diluted common share, in 2014.

"The second half of 2015 was challenging, but we consider our performance in 2015 to be a sound basis to move forward," said Gary Winemaster, Chief Executive Officer.  "We set a record high in sales, including meaningful revenue diversification from our on-road product as it moves from development into commercialization.  We achieved this record while integrating three acquisitions, and facing head winds in some of our larger end-markets.  While we experienced some margin compression due to a change in mix and operating inefficiencies, we developed plans to address these inefficiencies and are confident the execution of these plans will improve our business.  Moving forward, we are very excited about our shift to full engine manufacturing, as it secures our supply to our customers and enables the introduction of proprietary engines, the first of which is our 8.8 liter."  

2016 Outlook

The Company now expects 2016 revenue to be in the range of $350 million to $375 million.  The reduced guidance reflects continued challenging market conditions in the oil and gas end market.

The Company cautions that its 2016 outlook reflects its current assessment of a number of factors, including, but not limited to, the timing of new product ramps, oil and gas pricing and the impact of global economic conditions on demand growth in its current markets. Please see the "Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" below for additional risk factors.

The Company believes supplementing its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP with non-GAAP measures provides investors with useful information regarding the Company's short-term and long-term trends. Adjusted net income (loss) is derived from GAAP results by excluding the non-cash impact related to the change in the estimated fair value of the liability associated with the warrants issued in the Company's April 2011 private placement. The Company excludes this non-operating, non-cash impact, as the Company believes it is not indicative of its core operating results or future performance. The warrant revaluation results from facts and circumstances that fluctuate in impact and is excluded by management in its forecast and evaluation of the Company's operational performance.  Adjusted earnings (loss) per diluted common share is also derived from GAAP results by excluding the non-cash impact, even when antidilutive, related to the change in the estimated fair value of the liability associated with the warrants.  Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted earnings (loss) per diluted common share also include an adjustment to remove transaction related costs and the revaluation of contingent consideration in 2015 and 2014, both recorded in association with acquisition activity. In the three months ended December 31, 2015, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted earnings (loss) per diluted common share also include an adjustment to normalize the federal research tax credit recognized for the full year of 2015.  Other than the federal research tax credit for which an adjustment is presented in a comparison of quarterly results and is principally attributable to the timing of the passage of the legislation re-enacting this credit for 2015, the Company believes that these costs are not indicative of the Company's core operating results or future performance. These costs, other than the federal research tax credit, are excluded by management in its forecast and evaluation of the Company's operational performance.

Adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per diluted common share and other non-GAAP financial measures used and presented by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
