First Quarter Net sales of $61.8 million  Working Capital Improvement Contributes to Operating Cash Flow of $10.0 million   Net Debt Reduction of $9.7 million

WOOD DALE, Ill., May 09, 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 first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

"Our first quarter revenues were in line with our expectations and reflected the continued softness in the oil and gas end market," commented Gary Winemaster, Chief Executive Officer.  "We expect improvements throughout 2016, particularly in the second half where we anticipate an increased ramp up of on-road volume and a greater contribution from power generation." 

Winemaster continued, "We've made meaningful progress with our balance sheet and gained financial flexibility with an amendment to our debt.  Since the fourth quarter of 2015, we've lowered our operating expenses, while at the same time increasing R&D to support the success of our on-road initiatives.  We remain enthusiastic in our ability to achieve growth in this valuable end market in 2016 and well into the future.  Further, we reiterate our prior revenue guidance which includes profitability for the full year."

First Quarter 2016 Results

Net sales for the first quarter of 2016 were $61,814,000 compared to $86,139,000 in the first quarter of 2015.  The sales decline in the current quarter compared to the first quarter of 2015 was primarily driven by a reduction of approximately $25.6 million from the oil and gas end market partially offset by increased sales in the quarter of approximately $5.4 million in the Company's on-road end market.

Operating loss of $8,681,000 in the current quarter compares to operating income of $4,070,000 in the first quarter of 2015 and operating loss of $738,000 in the fourth quarter of 2015.  In 2015, operating expenses included transaction costs of approximately $200,000 ($120,000 after tax or $0.01 per diluted common share) and $393,000 ($236,000 after tax or $0.02 per diluted common share) for the first and fourth quarters, respectively.  Operating expense in the first quarter of 2016 did not include any such transaction costs.

Other expense for the first quarter of 2016 includes non-cash income of $1,256,000 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.  Other expense for the first quarter of 2015 included non-cash expense of $3,614,000 resulting from an increase in the estimated fair value of the warrant liability.

Net loss, which includes the warrant revaluation adjustment, was $5,251,000, or $0.49 per diluted common share for the first quarter of 2016.  This compares to a net loss of $1,456,000 or $0.13 per diluted common share for the first quarter of 2015, which included a warrant revaluation adjustment and transaction costs.

Net loss, adjusted to remove the warrant revaluation impact, was $6,507,000, or $0.60 per diluted common share for the first quarter of 2016.  This compares to adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2015 of $2,278,000, or $0.20 per diluted common share, which was adjusted to remove the warrant revaluation impact and transaction costs.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations

As used herein, "GAAP" refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.  The Company uses certain numerical measures in this press release which are or may be considered "Non-GAAP financial measures" under Regulation G.  The Company has provided below for your reference supplemental financial disclosure for these measures, including the most directly comparable GAAP measures and associated reconciliations.
 
Reconciliation of Net Loss to Adjusted Net (Loss) Income (Dollar amounts in thousands)
  Three months ended March 31, 2016 Three months ended March 31, 2015
Net loss  $   (5,251 ) $   (1,456 )
Non-cash (income) expense from warrant revaluation     (1,256 )     3,614  
Transaction costs, net of tax     -       120  
Adjusted net (loss) income $   (6,507 ) $   2,278  

Reconciliation of Diluted EPS to Adjusted Diluted EPS
  Three months ended March 31, 2016 Three months ended March 31, 2015
Earnings per diluted common share  $     (0.49 ) $     (0.13 )
Non-cash (income) expense from warrant revaluation     (0.11 )      0.32  
Transaction costs, net of tax      -       0.01  
Adjusted (loss) earnings per diluted common share $     (0.60 ) $  0.20  
             

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 (loss) income 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 (loss) earnings 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 (loss) income and adjusted (loss) earnings per diluted common share also include an adjustment to remove transaction related costs in 2015, recorded in association with acquisition activity.  The Company believes that these costs are not indicative of the Company's core operating results or future performance. These costs, are excluded by management in its forecast and evaluation of the Company's operational performance.

Adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted (loss) earnings 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.
