ITEM 2.02Results of Operations and Financial Condition.


On July 30, 2015, Stoneridge, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.  A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. On July 30, 2015, members of the Company’s management held a second quarter 2015 earnings conference call discussing the Company’s financial results and the presentation furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.2, accompanied management’s comments.


The press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures including (i) Adjusted Electronics Segment Sales (“Adjusted Sales”), (ii) Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Stoneridge, Inc. (“Adjusted Net Income”), (iii) Adjusted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations Attributable to Stoneridge, Inc. (“Adjusted EPS”) and (iv) Adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations (“Adjusted EBITDA”). Management believes that presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in the press release 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 Sales, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS facilitates a period to period comparison of operating results by excluding unusual items in the second quarter of 2015. These items relate to the impact of foreign currency translation on sales, post-disposition sales to the Company’s former Wiring business acquired by Motherson and the goodwill impairment charge related to the Company’s PST segment in the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA represents the sum of net operating income, depreciation, amortization, certain purchase accounting costs, unusual items and an adjustment for discontinued operations. These non-GAAP measures, however, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most comparable GAAP measures. Investors are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures utilized by the Company may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Adjusted Sales, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for sales, net income (loss) or earnings (loss) per share prepared in accordance with GAAP.
