WOOD DALE, Ill., March 11, 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 anticipated net sales for the first quarter ending March 31, 2016.

Anticipated First Quarter 2016 Net Sales

Power Solutions International, Inc. (the "Company") expects to report net sales for the first quarter of 2016 in the range of $59 to $63 million, below the current consensus analyst estimate of $74.4 million.  The Company had not previously offered guidance for the first quarter, but is disclosing the current outlook due to the difference when compared to consensus expectations.

"As we discussed on our fourth quarter 2015 earnings call, some of our larger end market customers are facing headwinds.  Consequently our revenue for the first half of the year will be down on a comparative basis from last year," said Gary Winemaster, Chief Executive Officer.  "We anticipated that the first quarter would be our most challenging, however we also continue to expect meaningful improvement as the year progresses, with the majority of our revenue being recognized in the second half of the year.  We are optimistic about our outlook for the year, building momentum in our on-road end markets and reaching full run-rate production by the third quarter.  We are not changing the full year guidance we offered on our last call, and still expect to be profitable for the full year."
