|ITEM 2.02||Results of Operations and Financial Condition.|
On April 28, 2021, Stoneridge, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. On April 29, 2021, members of the Company’s management will hold a first quarter 2021 earnings conference call to discuss the Company’s financial results and the presentation attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2, will accompany management’s comments.
The press release and earnings conference call presentation contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted Sales, Adjusted Gross Profit and Margin, Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) and Margin, Adjusted Income Before Tax, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share (“Adjusted EPS”), Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”), Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Net Debt, Adjusted Income Tax Expense and Adjusted Tax Rate (collectively, the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”). Management believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in the press release and earnings conference call presentation are useful to both management and investors in their analysis of the Company’s financial position, results of operations and expected results of operations because the Non-GAAP Financial Measures facilitate a period to period comparison of operating results by excluding significant unusual, non-recurring items in 2021 and 2020. For 2021, these items relate to the after-tax and pre-tax gain from disposal of soot sensor business, after-tax and pre-tax one-time sale of soot sensor product inventory, pre-tax gain from disposed soot sensor business, after-tax and pre-tax environmental remediation costs, pre-tax sales from disposed Soot Sensor Business, after-tax and pre-tax change in fair value of the earn-out consideration related to the acquisition of the remaining 26% minority interest in Stoneridge Brazil, after-tax and pre-tax restructuring costs, after-tax and pre-tax business realignment costs. For 2020, these items relate to the pre-tax change in fair value of the earn-out consideration related to the acquisition of the remaining 26% minority interest in Stoneridge Brazil, pre-tax and after-tax restructuring costs, pre-tax and after-tax business realignment costs, pre-tax and after-tax loss in Autotech fund investment, pre-tax and after-tax share-based compensation accelerated vesting, pre-tax and after-tax sales from disposed Soot Sensor Business and pre-tax and after-tax loss (gain) from disposed soot sensor business. These non-GAAP financial measures, however, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Adjusted Sales, Adjusted Gross Profit and Margin, Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) and Margin, Adjusted Income Before Tax, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Net Debt, Adjusted Income Tax Expense and Adjusted Tax Rate should not be considered a substitute for Sales, Gross Profit, Operating Income (Loss), Income Before Tax, Net Income, Earnings per Share, Debt, Income Tax Expense, or Tax Rate prepared in accordance with GAAP.
