Message from the CEO

We achieved the midpoint of our Q3 guidance on 10% organic volume growth and aggressive price actions that offset cost increases. Revenue in the quarter was well above pre-COVID levels, up 12% over Q3’21 and 11% above Q3’20, despite the full potential being suppressed by lingering supply chain disruptions. Our order rates are very strong, with our backlog growing to a record $1.2B, 2x normalized levels. While sequential costs spiked in excess of $30M in Q3, over $0.50 / share and our largest quarterly increase, I am pleased to say that our aggressive pricing actions are catching up, as our 3% sequential price / mix improvement offset this quarter’s immense inflationary impact.

In Q3, we published our EnerSys Sustainability Update, which provided environmental baseline data. We have continued to make substantial progress on our strategic technology and business development initiatives including 5G powering, transportation market share, and next generation Motive Power products, which collectively account for the majority of our backlog growth. Our lithium technology continues to gain traction as we now have several lithium variants available to Motive Power and Energy Systems, we released our Outback Mojave home energy storage lithium battery system, and $46 million of the $117 million of Energy Systems orders so far received for the California Public Utilities Commission backup power mandate were for lithium batteries. Demand is robust across all of our lines of businesses, and we expect this strength to continue well into our next fiscal year. Motive Power order rates have returned to normalized levels and the business will benefit as forklift electrification efforts continue, shortages abate, and we work down our backlog. Energy Systems margin improvements through pricing, contract manufacturing on-shoring, product redesign, and volume will continue to accelerate over the upcoming quarters with further demand growth in network powering. Finally, Specialty’s significant growth in Q3 was actually stymied by supply shortages which should set the business up for an even stronger Q4.

As such, we anticipate the benefit of our robust demand, pricing actions, technology developments, and supply mitigation strategies to show continued improvement over the upcoming quarters. We bought back 1.5M shares for $116M since the beginning of Q3, bringing our year-to-date repurchases to 1.9M shares for $148M and have $42M left in authorizations. We expect our adjusted diluted earnings per share to be between $1.11 and $1.21 in our fourth fiscal quarter.

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

Net earnings attributable to EnerSys stockholders (“Net earnings”) for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was $36.3 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $6.7 million, or $0.16 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 third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $38.6 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $16.4 million, or $0.38 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 third quarter of fiscal 2022, on a non-GAAP basis, were $1.01, compared to the guidance of $0.96 to $1.06 per diluted share for the third quarter given by the Company on November 10, 2021. These earnings compare to the prior year third quarter adjusted Net earnings of $1.27 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 January 2, 2022 and January 3, 2021.

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were $844.0 million, an increase of 12.4% from the prior year third quarter net sales of $751.1 million and increased 6.7% sequentially from the second quarter of fiscal 2022 net sales of $791.4 million. The increase compared to prior year quarter was the result of a 10% increase in organic volume resulting primarily from strong demand arising from robust markets and the easing of the pandemic and a 3% increase in pricing, partially offset by a 1% decrease in foreign currency translation impact. The sequential increase was due to a 5% increase in organic volume and a 3% increase in pricing, partially offset by a 1% decrease in foreign currency translation impact.

The Company’s operating results for its business segments for the third quarters of fiscal 2022 and 2021 are as follows:

Reconciliation of 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” and “adjusted operating earnings” as applicable, in their analysis of the Company's performance. This measure, as used by EnerSys in past quarters and years, adjusts operating earnings and Net 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. 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 Financing 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 or Net earnings 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 adjusted operating earnings is set forth in the table above, providing a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted operating earnings to the Company’s reported operating results for its business segments. Included below is a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted Net earnings to reported amounts. Non-GAAP adjusted operating earnings and Net earnings are calculated excluding restructuring and other highlighted charges and credits. The following tables provide additional information regarding certain non-GAAP measures:
