Message from the CEO

EnerSys had a solid second quarter of fiscal 2023, with revenue of $899 million up 14% year-over-year, the second highest quarterly revenue in our history, even after absorbing ~$45 million of FX headwinds. Demand and order trends were robust across all segments in what is a seasonally slow quarter. Our backlog remains healthy at historically high levels though down slightly for the first time in several quarters as a result of easing supply chains enabling us to deliver more product from our backlog. On a sequential basis, adjusted gross margin expanded by 120 basis points during the second quarter, driven by an impressive $30 million improvement in price/mix, accomplished across all segments of our business, which was partially offset by an additional $11 million of volume-adjusted costs – a sign that we have begun to turn the corner on the long-anticipated catch up on price/cost recapture. Against a backdrop of an unpredictable supply chain, tight labor markets, inflation, and foreign exchange headwinds, we achieved adjusted diluted EPS of $1.11, slightly above the midpoint of our guidance and up $0.10 versus prior year.

We continue to innovate and deliver enhanced technology in our product portfolio that will set us apart from our competitors, both in the near- and long-term. We successfully launched our NexSys® customer day in our Arras, France plant, featuring TPPL and lithium-ion line tours with 300 global decision makers, resulting in strong interest and orders for our proprietary maintenance-free solutions. Our TouchSafe line powering product development passed another milestone in customer testing and our California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) backup power mandate solutions are ramping as expected with approximately $40 million billed in 1H F23, including $20 million in the second quarter and an additional $95 million remaining in backlog. Our Fast Charge & Storage initiative is building momentum and we are excited to be installing a significant upgrade to our current on-site demo with a near production grade system offering the highest energy density currently in its class with full AI capabilities for optimized energy management and advanced cloud services capabilities. In addition, while our products and services are critical to the low carbon transition, as important is reducing our own carbon footprint; therefore we have allocated an average of $4 million of annual capital spending over the next five years to execute our sustainability goals announced earlier this year.

While current headwinds are improving, we anticipate overall global economic conditions will continue to pose challenges and are monitoring the near-term economic environment closely. We remain laser-focused on what we can control, with our near-term priorities set on pricing, navigating supply disruptions, and improving manufacturing performance. For example, the execution of our previously announced Ooltewah plant transition to Richmond has been seamless to date, which is a testament to our comprehensive planning process and culture of teamwork, especially given the scope of this project and the challenging global environment in which it was achieved. We will begin to realize some of the $8 million of annual cost savings from this project in our Q4 F23 results. Despite the unprecedented geopolitical events and inflationary pressures we have been facing, we are cautiously optimistic that our second quarter results reflect a turning point, with costs starting to plateau and signs of supply chain constraints easing. Customer demand for our products remains strong with secular trends in our end markets providing support in a variety of economic environment scenarios.

Our strategy to invest in a diverse set of technology offerings and expand into energy systems end markets is paying off as secular trends and US government mandates and funding are driving markets to us. Looking ahead, our diversity of end markets, ability to recoup inflation through price, historically high backlog, and broadened product portfolio collectively position us for long-term revenue and earnings growth. Global megatrends such as 5G, broadband expansion through the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF), data center growth, material handling electrification and automation, grid stabilization and electric vehicle charging continue to have long tailwinds which we believe will add fuel to our future growth. I remain more confident than ever we will emerge well positioned to deliver exceptional value for our customers and our shareholders.

David M. Shaffer, President and Chief Executive Officer, EnerSys

Summary of Results

Second Quarter 2023

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 were $899.4 million, an increase of 13.7% from the prior year second quarter net sales of $791.4 million. The increase compared to prior year quarter was the result of a 9% increase in pricing and a 10% increase in organic volume, partially offset by a 5% decrease in foreign currency translation impact.

Net earnings attributable to EnerSys stockholders (“Net earnings”) for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $34.5 million, or $0.84 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $11.1 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, from highlighted items described in further detail in the tables shown below, reconciling non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts.

Net earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $35.6 million, or $0.82 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $7.9 million, or $0.19 per diluted share from highlighted items described in further detail in the tables shown below, reconciling non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts.

Excluding these highlighted items, adjusted Net earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2023, on a non-GAAP basis, were $1.11, compared to the guidance of $1.05 to $1.15 per diluted share for the second quarter given by the Company on August 10, 2022. These earnings compare to the prior year second quarter adjusted Net earnings of $1.01 per diluted share. Please refer to the section included herein under the heading “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a discussion of the Company’s use of non-GAAP adjusted financial information, which includes tables reconciling GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted financial measures for the quarters ended October 2, 2022 and October 3, 2021.

Fiscal Year to Date 2023

Net sales for the six months of fiscal 2023 were $1,798.4 million, an increase of 12.0% from the prior year six months net sales of $1,606.3 million. This increase was due to a 9% increase in organic volume and 8% increase in pricing, partially offset by a decrease of 5% in foreign currency translation impact.

Net earnings for the six months of fiscal 2023 was $65.5 million, or $1.59 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $27.6 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, from highlighted items described in further detail in the tables shown below, reconciling non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts.

Net earnings for the six months of fiscal 2022 was $79.5 million, or $1.83 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $18.4 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, from highlighted items described in further detail in the tables shown below, reconciling non-GAAP adjusted financial measures to reported amounts.

Adjusted Net earnings per diluted share for the six months of fiscal 2023, on a non-GAAP basis, were $2.26. This compares to the prior year six months adjusted Net earnings of $2.26 per diluted share. Please refer to the section included herein under the heading “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a discussion of the Company’s use of non-GAAP adjusted financial information.

Third Quarter 2023 Outlook

We expect to continue to operate in a dynamic macro environment and anticipate FX headwinds and European utility inflation to persist for some time. While our order patterns remain strong, we believe we will weather and potentially benefit from a slowdown due to large portions of our business that are cycle-independent as well as our significant cash flow generation during past recessionary periods. For the third quarter of fiscal 2023, we expect adjusted diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.20 to $1.30, reflecting sequential volume and price/mix improvement, strong demand trends and a healthy backlog. We expect our gross margin to be in the range of 21% - 23%. For the full year of fiscal 2023 we expect capital expenditures to be approximately $100 million.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, ("GAAP"). EnerSys' management uses the non-GAAP measures “adjusted Net earnings”, “adjusted Diluted EPS”, “adjusted operating earnings”, “adjusted EBITDA”, “net sales at constant currency”, and "net sales growth rate at constant currency” as applicable, in their analysis of the Company's performance. Adjusted Net earnings and adjusted operating earnings measure, as used by EnerSys in past quarters and years, adjusts Net earnings and operating earnings determined in accordance with GAAP to reflect changes in financial results associated with the Company's restructuring initiatives and other highlighted charges and income items. Adjusted EBITDA is a key performance measure that our management uses to assess our operating performance. Because Adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis, we use this measure as an overall assessment of our performance, to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies and for business planning purposes. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest income, interest expense, other (income) expense net, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, further adjusted to exclude restructuring and exit activities, impairment of goodwill, indefinite-lived intangibles and other assets, acquisition activities and those charges and credits that are not directly related to operating unit performance. EBITDA is calculated as net income before interest income, interest expense, other (income) expense net, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define non-GAAP constant currency net sales as total net sales excluding the effect of foreign exchange rate movements, and we use it to determine the constant currency growth rate on a year-on-year basis. Non-GAAP constant currency revenues are calculated by translating current period revenues using the prior comparative periods’ actual exchange rates, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current period. Constant currency net sales growth rate is calculated by determining the difference between current period non-GAAP constant currency net sales and current period reported net sales divided by prior period as reported net sales. Management believes the presentation of these financial measures reflecting these non-GAAP adjustments provides important supplemental information in evaluating the operating results of the Company as distinct from results that include items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results and overall business performance; in particular, those charges that the Company incurs as a result of restructuring activities, impairment of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangibles and other assets, acquisition activities and those charges and credits that are not directly related to operating unit performance, such as significant legal proceedings, amortization of Alpha and NorthStar related intangible assets and tax valuation allowance changes, including those related to the AHV (Old-Age and Survivors Insurance) Financing (TRAF) in Switzerland. Because these charges are not incurred as a result of ongoing operations, or are incurred as a result of a potential or previous acquisition, they are not as helpful a measure of the performance of our underlying business, particularly in light of their unpredictable nature and are difficult to forecast. Although we exclude the amortization of purchased intangibles from these non-GAAP measures, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation.

Income tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments are calculated using the applicable statutory tax rate for the jurisdictions in which the charges (benefits) are incurred, while taking into consideration any valuation allowances. For those items which are non-taxable, the tax expense (benefit) is calculated at 0%.

These non-GAAP disclosures have limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for operating earnings, Net earnings or net income determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Management believes that this non-GAAP supplemental information will be helpful in understanding the Company's ongoing operating results. This supplemental presentation should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by similar adjustments to Net earnings determined in accordance with GAAP.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP net sales and growth rates in constant currency are set forth in the table below, providing a reconciliation of non-GAAP constant currency net sales to the Company’s reported net sales for its business segments.
