Power Solutions International Files 10-K for 2018 and Provides 2019 Financial Outlook
Significant gross margin and profitability improvement expected for 2019
WOOD DALE, Ill., December 27, 2019 Power Solutions International, Inc. (the Company) (OTC Pink: PSIX), a leader in the design, engineering and manufacture of emission-certified engines and power systems, announced that it has filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Anticipated Timing for 2019 Filings
The Company currently anticipates filing its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, June 30 and September 30, 2019, and its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 by March 30, 2020. Upon filing the aforementioned documents with the SEC, the Company will become current and timely with its filings and will seek to relist its common stock on a national exchange.
Outlook for Full Year of 2019
Projected sales for the full year of 2019 are expected to be above the $496 million level achieved in 2018, marking the Companys third consecutive year of annual sales growth, and up considerably from sales of $339 million in 2016. Gross profit is anticipated to improve substantially versus 2018 due to healthy sales growth, favorable mix, strategic pricing actions, lower warranty costs and operational productivity improvements, which collectively are expected to drive a strong gross margin improvement. In addition, the Companys operating income is expected to be favorably impacted by lower selling, general and administrative expenses primarily as a result of a decline in restatement-related expenses. As a result, the Company also expects its profitability to show a major improvement versus 2018. The Company cautions that this outlook is subject to change upon the finalization of PSIs audited financial statements for the full year of 2019.
The Companys total debt obligations were approximately $92 million at September 30, 2019, a decrease of approximately $18 million as compared with total debt at December 31, 2018. The decline in debt includes the net impact of customer prepayments of approximately $11 million.
John Miller, chief executive officer, commented, We continue to execute against our business objectives, which includes continued investment in the expansion of our engine portfolio and the improvement of our profitability. During 2019, we added several engines to our product lineup, including 20L, 40L, and 53L diesel models, which received EPA emergency standby certification. The addition of these diesel models and others to our portfolio follows the introduction of 32L and 40L natural gas engines during 2018 and complements our strong suite of natural gas products. Importantly, weve expanded our addressable market within power generation, and have set the stage for long-term growth, particularly within our energy end market where weve historically achieved stronger margins.
Although our profitability did not meet our targets in 2018 due to several factors, I am highly encouraged with the healthy sales and improved margin trends to date through 2019. Looking ahead, well strive to achieve long-term shareholder value through a continued focus on our strategic initiatives.

Major Automotive OEMs including General Motors, Ford, Mitsubishi and others are moving into electrification and hybridization which eliminates completely or utilizes smaller combustion engines Emission regulations like the current standard, the Corporate Average Fuel (CAFÉ) standard, for passenger cars and light trucks will increase to 40.3 to 41.0 MPG by model year 2021, and Greenhouse Gas emission (GHG) will require 163 grams/mile of CO2 in model year 2025. (Source: Transportation.gov) Newer automotive engines utilize lighter aluminum block, direct injection technologies that are not nearly as commercially viable as current engines and lack the power required for certain applications This shift leaves a potential gap in the market of 80,000 to 100,000 engines annually PSI’s mature product line that includes 6.0L and 8.8L engines can address portions of the transportation, energy and industrial product markets that require these engines since they will no longer be served by the major OEMs Class 1 – 2 Passenger Vehicles Class 2 – 4 Light Duty Truck & Bus Class 4- 7 Medium Duty Truck & Bus Class 8 Heavy Duty Truck & Bus 8.8L 6.0L +10L Engines <2L Engines AUTOMOTIVE ENGINE DOWNSIZE OR ELIMINATION DUE TO HYBRIDIZATION OR ELECTRIFICATION AUTOMOTIVE ENGINE GAP FILLING THE GAP
