Net sales for the fiscal 2017 second quarter were $108.8 million compared with $91.7 million for the same period a year earlier. The company’s sales performance for the fiscal 2017 second quarter reflects continued strength of its rotating electrical and wheel hub business, as well as contributions from its other product lines — including the company’s emerging brake power boosters, which commenced in August.

“As we commence the second half of fiscal 2017, we are well-positioned within the aftermarket industry.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP measures – adjusted net sales, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin, which are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to net sales, net income (loss), EBITDA, income from operations, gross profit or gross profit margin as a measure of financial performance. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP measures, provide useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s results of operations. However, these non-GAAP measures have significant limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of the company’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP. For a reconciliation of adjusted net sales, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin to their corresponding GAAP measures, see the financial tables included in this press release. Also refer to our Form 8-K to which this release is attached, and other filings we make with the SEC, for further information regarding these adjustments.
