Fourth quarter net sales up 17% year over year

Fourth quarter adjusted net income of $2,621,000 or $0.24 per diluted common share, which excludes warrant revaluation

Fourth quarter net loss of $3,752,000 or $0.36 per diluted common share

WOOD DALE, Ill., Feb. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Power Solutions International, Inc. (Nasdaq:PSIX), a leader in the design, engineering and manufacture of emissions-certified alternative-fuel and conventional power systems, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Results

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $61,500,000, an increase of 17% from $52,452,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012. Contributing to the sales increase was continued strong growth in the Company's heavy-duty power generation systems and in aftermarket sales.

Operating income was $3,925,000, an increase of 30% from $3,014,000 in the fourth quarter of 2012. Operating margin of 6.4% in the current quarter increased from 5.7% in the comparable prior year period and was unchanged from the third quarter of 2013.

Other expense for the fourth quarter includes a non-cash charge of $6,373,000, or $0.60 per diluted common share, resulting from an increase in the estimated fair value of the liability associated with the warrants issued in the Company's April 2011 private placement. The increase in the estimated fair value of this warrant liability was primarily related to the increase in the Company's stock price in the fourth quarter.

The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013, which included the warrant revaluation adjustment, was $3,752,000, or $0.36 per diluted common share. This compares to net income of $745,000 or $0.08 per diluted common share for the fourth quarter of 2012, which also included a warrant revaluation adjustment.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013, adjusted to remove the warrant revaluation impact was $2,621,000, or $0.24 per diluted common share. This compares to adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 of $1,973,000 or $0.21 per diluted common share, which is also adjusted to remove the warrant revaluation impact. In addition, adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 included an adjustment to remove costs of $206,000 ($124,000 after tax or $0.01 per diluted common share) incurred in connection with lease termination costs.

"Our solid performance in the fourth quarter capped a very successful year for PSI," stated Gary Winemaster, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Power Solutions. "In the quarter we sustained double-digit year-over-year sales growth, expanded our gross margins, and grew operating income 30% year over year. We are exiting 2013 in our best financial shape ever. Having raised $35 million in a public offering along with establishing a new $75 million credit facility, we have the financial resources to support our growth in 2014 and beyond. We look forward to capitalizing on the significant opportunities ahead."

Full Year 2013 Results

Net sales for 2013 were $237,842,000, an increase of 18%, from $202,342,000 for 2012. The net loss for 2013 was $18,760,000 or $1.92 per diluted common share, compared to net income of $6,702,000, or $0.74 per diluted common share, for 2012. Adjusted net income for the year increased 27% to $9,433,000, or $0.92 per diluted common share, compared to $7,455,000 or $0.81 per diluted common share, last year.

2014 Outlook

The Company reiterates its previously issued outlook for sales growth in 2014. The Company continues to expect sales for the year in a range of $310 to $330 million.

Winemaster concluded, "PSI has both the market opportunity and the product offering to achieve our goals in 2014 and beyond. Demand remains robust for our large power systems in the oil and gas industry, and we expect this end market to significantly contribute to growth again in 2014. Our recently announced supply agreement with NACCO Materials Handling Group solidifies our visibility for growth as well. Finally, we remain excited about the on-road market, and look forward to continuing progress as our potential customers evaluate turnkey solutions for their medium-duty trucks."

This outlook reflects the Company's current estimates based on a number of factors, including but not limited to the timing of new product ramp-ups and the impact of global economic conditions on demand growth in its current markets.

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 and adjusted earnings per diluted common share are 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 net income and adjusted earnings per diluted common share also include an adjustment to remove early lease termination costs and facility consolidation costs incurred in association with the relocation of the Company's production, warehousing and administrative offices into new facilities in the three months ended September 30, 2012 and the three months ended December 31, 2012. In addition, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted common share also include an adjustment to remove a loss on debt extinguishment resulting from the Company entering into a new five-year, $75 million credit facility in the three months ended June 30, 2013. The Company excludes these facility relocation costs and debt extinguishment costs as they, similar to the warrants, are not indicative of the Company's core operating results or future performance and are excluded by management in its forecast and evaluation of the Company's operational performance.

Adjusted net income, adjusted 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.
