Message from the CEO

The March quarter marked a strong finish to a challenging year. Demand across all segments continued to surge, with fourth quarter net sales of $907 million eclipsing $900 million for the first time in our company’s history and our backlog growing to $1.3 billion, breaking new records for the third consecutive quarter. Our pricing actions are continuing to catch up with our significant cost increases, driving a 19% sequential increase in adjusted diluted EPS despite ongoing and mounting supply chain headwinds, labor shortages, and historic inflation levels. While pricing has not yet caught up with the persisting inflation endured this fiscal year, we are pleased with the trajectory our teams are making to recapture our underlying financial potential. For reference, the inflation and supply chain disruptions created nearly $3 per share of sequential pressure in fiscal 2022. Approximately two-thirds of this pressure was offset in the fiscal year as we continue to chase these pressures with price and mix.

We achieved several key milestones in fiscal 2022, including the launch and UL safety listing of our high-performance NexSys® lithium iON batteries which feature an integrated Battery Management System (BMS) that performs auto-diagnosis, voltage limitation, and communication of performance data. We also exceeded our capacity goal for our Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) batteries. Customer demand for this proprietary technology across all of our business segments continues to outpace our ability to supply. We expect to benefit further from the strength of this demand as we make progress toward increasing capacity by an additional $200 million in fiscal 2023. I am also pleased to note we made significant progress on our ESG goals, including several sustainability and environment updates that culminated in the publication of our first comprehensive sustainability report in April 2022. The report highlights the critical role our power and energy solutions play in building a resilient, low-carbon future and are a key component to decarbonization globally.

As we enter fiscal 2023, we expect to face ongoing challenges with continued supply chain constraints and inflation exacerbated by the senseless conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the resurgence of Covid in China. We remain focused on what is in our control, catching inflation with ongoing price increases, navigating supply disruptions, and improving manufacturing cost performance. I am proud of our employees’ resilience and proven ability to address these challenges head on. Despite these near-term headwinds, we are optimistic about our ability to persevere and capitalize on the opportunities ahead of us. We believe we are well positioned for accelerated growth once the current macro headwinds subside. We are committed to being good corporate citizens and delivering long-term value to our shareholders through profitable growth and a disciplined capital allocation strategy.

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

Summary of Results

Fourth Quarter 2022

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 were $907.0 million, an increase of 11.5% from the prior year fourth quarter net sales of $813.5 million and increased 7.5% sequentially from the third quarter of fiscal 2022 net sales of $844.0 million. The increase compared to prior year quarter was the result of an 8% increase in organic volume resulting primarily from strong demand arising from robust markets and the easing of the pandemic and a 6% increase in pricing, partially offset by a 2% decrease in foreign currency translation impact. The sequential increase was due to a 6% increase in organic volume and a 2% increase in pricing.

Net earnings attributable to EnerSys stockholders (“Net earnings”) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $28.1 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $22.0 million, or $0.53 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 fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 was $33.8 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $22.7 million, or $0.52 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 fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, on a non-GAAP basis, were $1.20, compared to the guidance of $1.11 to $1.21 per diluted share for the fourth quarter given by the Company on February 9, 2022. These earnings compare to the prior year fourth quarter adjusted Net earnings of $1.30 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 March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021.

Summary of Results

Fiscal Year 2022

Net sales for the twelve months of fiscal 2022 were $3,357.3 million, an increase of 12.7% from the prior year twelve months net sales of $2,977.9 million. This increase was due to a 10% increase in organic volume resulting primarily from strong demand and a 3% increase in pricing.

Net earnings for the twelve months of fiscal 2022 was $143.9 million, or $3.36 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $47.1 million, or $1.11 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 twelve months of fiscal 2021 was $143.3 million, or $3.32 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable highlighted net of tax impact of $50.8 million, or $1.17 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 twelve months of fiscal 2022, on a non-GAAP basis, were $4.47. This compares to the prior year twelve months adjusted Net earnings of $4.49 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.

First Quarter 2023 Outlook

Macro headwinds from supply chain constraints, increasing interest rates and increased inflationary challenges have only been fueled by geopolitical events of the past quarter, and we anticipate these will not dramatically subside this calendar year. We will continue to take necessary pricing actions and expect to see ongoing mix benefits of our product redesign and re-sourcing efforts continuing throughout the year. We remain well-positioned to capitalize heavily on robust market demand in exciting end-markets, our strong order book, and price stickiness once the current macro environment normalizes, and we are tracking to our strategic plan. For the first quarter of fiscal 2023, we expect adjusted diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.10 to $1.20, with our pricing keeping pace with mounting inflation and FX gains in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 not repeating. We expect our gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 to be in the range of 21% - 23%. For the full year of fiscal 2023 we expect capital expenditure 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” and “adjusted EBITDA” 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. 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 adjusted operating earnings is set forth in the table below, providing a reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted operating earnings to the Company’s reported operating results for its business segments.
