WOOD DALE, Ill., May 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Power Solutions International, Inc. (OTCBB: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 quarter ended March 31, 2012.

First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Net sales for the first quarter of 2012 were $48.1 million, an increase of $16.7 million, or 53%, from the first quarter of 2011. Net sales increased $2.6 million or 6%, from the fourth quarter of 2011. The Company saw substantial sales growth in all major product lines and industries served compared to the first quarter last year. The 6% sales growth compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 was the result of notable strength in large power systems, aftermarket products, and other traditional markets served.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2012 was $8.2 million, resulting in a gross margin of 17.1%. Gross margin continued to improve sequentially as mix shifted to higher margin products.

Operating expenses declined to 10.8% of sales compared to 11.8% of sales in the first quarter of 2011. The Company maintained its commitment to research and development, however, by increasing R&D spending 74% to $1.7 million compared to the year-ago quarter.

Operating income of $3.0 million increased 32% from the first quarter of 2011 and rose 17% from the fourth quarter of 2011.

Other expense for the first quarter includes a non-cash charge of $0.6 million resulting from the increase in the estimated fair value of the liability associated with the warrants issued in the Company's April 2011 private placement.

Net income for the first quarter of 2012, which includes the warrant valuation expense, was $1.1 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. Net income adjusted to remove the warrant valuation impact was $1.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share. This compares to net income for the first quarter of 2011 of $1.1 million, or $0.13 per diluted share.

Summary of Diluted EPS Attributable to Common Stockholders
"Adjusted" removes all impact of warrant valuation changes
  Q1 2012 Q4 2011 Q1 2011 Seq Growth Y/Y Growth
EPS $0.13 $0.06 $0.13 117% 0%
Adjusted EPS $0.19 $0.18 $0.13 6% 46%

Comparisons of per share results for the first quarter 2012 compared to first quarter 2011 are impacted by the simplified capital structure under which the Company is now operating. As previously reported, all of the Company's outstanding shares of preferred stock were converted into common stock as of August 26, 2011.

"These solid results reflect both the hard work of our employees and the attractiveness of the market opportunities in front of us," stated Gary Winemaster, Chief Executive Officer of Power Solutions.  "We are off to a great start in 2012, and remain optimistic about our outlook. Low natural gas and other alternative fuel prices, along with increasing regulation are changing the dynamics in the choice of fuels being used to power industrial machinery.  With our leadership position in industrial power systems, and the contribution from new products over time, we are confident we can sustain our high rate of growth in the quarters ahead."

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including the statement as to confidence in sustaining the high rate of growth and other statements regarding the current expectations of Power Solutions International, Inc. (the "Company") about its prospects and opportunities. The Company has tried to identify these forward looking statements by using words such as "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "plan," "will," "would," "should," "forecast," "believe," "guidance," "projection" or similar expressions, but these words are not the exclusive means for identifying such statements. The Company cautions that a number of risks, uncertainties and other important factors could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, the development of the market for alternative fuel systems, technological and other risks relating to the Company's development of its new 8.8 liter engine, introduction of other new products and entry into on-road markets (including the risk that these initiatives may not be successful) changes in environmental and regulatory policies, significant competition, general economic conditions and the Company's dependence on key suppliers.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations

As used herein, "GAAP" refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. We use certain numerical measures in this press release which are or may be considered "Non-GAAP financial measures" under Regulation G. We have provided below for your reference supplemental financial disclosure for these measures, including the most directly comparable GAAP measures and associated reconciliations.

Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income
(Dollar amounts in millions)
  Three months ended March 31, 2012 Three months ended March 31, 2011
Net Income  $1.1 $1.1
Non-cash expense from warrant revaluation $0.6 --
Adjusted Net Income $1.7 $1.1
Reconciliation of Diluted EPS to Adjusted Diluted EPS
  Three months ended March 31, 2012 Three months ended March 31, 2011
Diluted earnings per share  $0.13 $0.13
Non-cash expense from warrant revaluation $0.06 --
Adjusted diluted earnings per share $0.19 $0.13

Note: Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are derived from GAAP results by excluding the non-cash expense related to the increase in the estimated fair value of the liability associated with the warrants issued in the Company's April 2011 private placement. The Company believes supplementing its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP with non-GAAP measures will provide investors further understanding of the Company's short-term and long-term trends. Investors may want to consider excluding the impact of this non-operating, non-cash expense, 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, adjusted diluted earnings per share and other non-GAAP financial measures used 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.
