Fred Knechtel, Remy International, Inc. Sr. Vice President, CFO and Treasurer, added, "Our sales were off marginally from last year with new OE programs and increased aftermarket sales offsetting the reduction of  previously disclosed roll-off of programs with Remy content, and the continued softness of the North American commercial vehicle market.  Investments in China and Light Duty Aftermarket impacted results in 2013 but position us well for the coming year."

Jay Pittas, Remy International, Inc. President and CEO commented, "2013 was a successful year for Remy, anchored by our positive fourth quarter results.  We focused on winning new business, driving sustainable operational improvements, and aggressively controlling spending, while investing for growth in China and our Light Duty aftermarket. We made significant progress on all fronts.  The Remy team remains focused on driving superior long-term value for shareholders.  With healthy cash flows to support business investments, pay dividends, and fund potential M&A activities, I believe that we are well positioned with our expanded portfolio and quality products to grow our business."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (U.S. GAAP) is the standard framework of guidelines for financial accounting. U.S. GAAP includes the standards, conventions, and rules accountants follow in recording and summarizing transactions and in the preparation of financial statements. In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Remy has provided Adjusted EBITDA, a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, which is frequently used by management, analysts, investors and other interested parties. Management believes that the non-U.S. GAAP financial measure presented provides a useful measure of Remy's financial performance since it excludes certain items which do not reflect ongoing operations including costs associated with restructuring costs, impairment of assets related to capital investments, interest on our debt and non-cash stock-based compensation charges. Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as net income attributable to common stockholders before (i) interest expense–net, (ii) income tax expense (benefit), (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) stock-based compensation expense, (v) net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, (vi) restructuring, other charges and other impairment charges, (vii) loss on extinguishment of debt and refinancing fees, (viii) executive officer separation cost and (ix) other adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA as defined by the Company may differ from non-U.S. GAAP measures used by other companies and is not a measurement under U.S. GAAP. There are limitations inherent in non-U.S. GAAP financial measures in that they exclude a variety of charges and credits that are required to be included in a U.S. GAAP presentation, and therefore do not present the full measure of the Company's recorded costs against its revenue. Accordingly, in analyzing Remy's future financial performance, non-U.S. GAAP results presented should be considered together with U.S. GAAP results, rather than as an alternative to U.S. GAAP basis financial measures. Reconciliations of non-U.S. GAAP measures to related U.S. GAAP measures are presented in the financial schedules which accompany this release.

A-4 Remy International, Inc. Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures (Unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance defined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We use adjusted EBITDA as a supplement to our U.S. GAAP results in evaluating our business. Other companies in our industry define adjusted EBITDA differently from us and, as a result, our measure is not comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies in our industry.

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to common stockholders before interest expense–net, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, restructuring, other charges and other impairment charges, loss on extinguishment of debt and refinancing fees, executive officer separation and other adjustments as set forth in the reconciliations provided below.

Adjusted EBITDA is one of the key factors upon which we assess performance. As an analytical tool, adjusted EBITDA assists us in comparing our performance over various reporting periods on a consistent basis because it excludes items that we do not believe reflect our ongoing operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our performance, as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to any other measure prescribed by U.S. GAAP. There are limitations to using non-U.S. GAAP measures such as adjusted EBITDA. Although we believe that adjusted EBITDA may make an evaluation of our operating performance more consistent because it removes items that do not reflect our ongoing operations, adjusted EBITDA excludes certain financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our performance.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to its most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, net income attributable to common stockholders.
