On February 27, 2019, Stoneridge, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2018.A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. On February 28, 2019, members of the Company’s management will hold a fourth quarter 2018 earnings conference call to discuss the Company’s financial results and the presentation attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2, accompanies management’s comments.

The press release and earnings conference call presentation contain certain non-GAAP financial measures Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Stoneridge, Inc.

(“Adjusted EPS”), Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”), Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization Margin (“Adjusted EBITDA Margin”), Adjusted Income Before Tax, and Adjusted Tax Rate. 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 Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Income Before Tax, and Adjusted Tax Rate non-GAAP financial measures facilitate a period to period comparison of operating results by excluding significant unusual, non-recurring items in 2018 and 2017. For 2018, these items relate to the after-tax and pre-tax step-up in fair value of the earn-out considerations related to the acquisitions of Orlaco and the remaining 26% minority interested in PST, after-tax, pre-tax business realignment costs, pre-tax allocation of centralized procurement and operations functions for each of our segments and the after-tax impact of the US Tax Cut and Jobs Act. For 2017, these items relate to the pre-tax step-up in fair value of the earn-out considerations related to the acquisitions of Orlaco and the remaining 26% minority interested in PST, the pre-tax transaction costs related to the acquisition of Orlaco, the pre-tax step-up in acquired Orlaco inventory, pre-tax business realignment costs, and the pre-tax property, plant and equipment gain on insurance proceeds. EBITDA represents the sum of net income, interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. 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 Gross Profit, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Income Before Tax, and Adjusted Tax Rate should not be considered a substitute for Gross Profit, Operating Income, Operating Margin, Net Income, Earnings per Share, Income Before Tax, or Tax Rate prepared in accordance with GAAP.
