Generac Holdings Inc. (NYSE:GNRC) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition

Story continues below

On August 2, 2017, Generac Holdings Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) issued a press release (the “Press Release”) announcing its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017. A copy of the Press Release is attached hereto as Exhibit99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information contained in this Current Report on Form8-K (including the exhibits) is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. The information contained in this Current Report on Form8-K shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in any such filing.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In the Press Release, we present certain financial information, specifically Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Free Cash Flow which are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”). We present Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Free Cash Flow in the Press Release because these metrics assist us in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Free Cash Flow:

for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and developing and refining our internal projections for future periods;

to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies and as a supplemental tool in evaluating our performance against our budget for each period;

in communications with our board of directors and investors concerning our financial performance; and

to evaluate prior acquisitions in relation to the existing business.

We also use Adjusted EBITDA as a benchmark for the determination of the bonus component of compensation for our senior executives under our management incentive plans.

We believe that the disclosure of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Free Cash Flow offers additional financial metrics which, when coupled with U.S. GAAP results and the reconciliation to U.S. GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of our results of operations and the factors and trends affecting our business for securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of our company. We believe Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Free Cash Flow are useful to investors for the following reasons:

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Free Cash Flow and similar non-GAAP measures are widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon financing and accounting methods, book values of assets, tax jurisdictions, capital structures and the methods by which assets were acquired; and

by comparing our Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Free Cash Flow in different historical periods, our investors can evaluate our operating performance excluding the impact of certain items.
