Highlights of the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2012

Net revenue for the second quarter 2012 was $504.6 million, an increase of $49.6 million, or 10.9%, from net revenue for the second quarter 2011 of $455.0 million.  Net income for the second quarter 2012 was $26.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share.  This compares to a net (loss) for the second quarter 2011 of $(34.6) million, or $(0.20) per diluted share.  Adjusted net income1 for the second quarter 2012 was $97.5 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, which was 19.3% of net revenue.  This compares to Adjusted net income1 for the second quarter 2011 of $92.2 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, which was 20.3% of net revenue.

Net revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $996.6 million, an increase of $97.4 million, or 10.8%, from $899.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $65.0 million, or $0.36 per diluted share.  This compares to a net (loss) for the six months ended June 30, 2011 of $(44.2) million, or $(0.25) per diluted share.  Adjusted net income1 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $186.5 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, which was 18.7% of net revenue.  This compares to Adjusted net income1 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 of $183.3 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, which was 20.4% of net revenue.

"Despite the headwinds of slowing European auto production and a declining Euro foreign exchange rate, the business achieved record results this quarter," said Tom Wroe, Chief Executive Officer.  "While we are not immune to near-term global economic slowing, I continue to be confident in Sensata's long-term growth model."

The Company spent $26.2 million, or 5.2% of net revenue, on research, development and engineering related costs in the second quarter of 2012.  These costs reside in the Cost of revenue and the Research and development lines of the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. 

The Company's ending cash balance at June 30, 2012 was $260.8 million.  During the first half of the year, the Company generated cash of $189.8 million from operations, used cash of $23.3 million for investing activities and generated cash of $2.2 million from financing activities. 

The Company's cash conversion cycle, which is defined as days sales outstanding (DSO) plus days on hand inventory (DOH) less days payable outstanding (DPO), was 55.8 days at the end of the second quarter compared to 56.3 days at June 30, 2011.  Excluding the two acquired businesses, our cash conversion cycle would have been less than 50 days.

The Company recorded an income tax provision of $24.8 million for the second quarter 2012.  Approximately $5.7 million of the provision, or 4.5% of Adjusted EBIT, related to taxes that are payable in cash and approximately $19.1 million related to deferred income tax expense and other income tax expense.

The Company's total indebtedness at June 30, 2012 was $1.83 billion.  The Company's Net debt2 was $1.57 billion resulting in a Pro Forma Net leverage ratio2 of 3.0X.

Guidance

For the full year 2012, the Company anticipates net revenue of $1.95 billion to $1.99 billion, which, at the midpoint, represents growth of 7.8% over full year 2011 net revenue of $1.83 billion.  The Company expects Adjusted net income1 of $363 million to $378 million, or $2.00 to $2.08 per diluted share for the full year 2012.  This guidance assumes a diluted share count of 181.6 million for the full year 2012 and a USD to Euro foreign currency exchange rate of $1.24 to €1.00 for the balance of 2012.

The Company also anticipates net revenue of $460 million to $480 million for the third quarter 2012.  The Company expects Adjusted net income1 of $81 million to $88 million, or $0.44 to $0.48 per diluted share, for the third quarter 2012.  This guidance assumes a diluted share count of 181.5 million for the third quarter of 2012.

1See Non-GAAP Measures for discussion of Adjusted net income which includes a reconciliation of this measure to Net income (loss).

2Net debt represents total indebtedness including capital lease and other financing obligations, less cash and cash equivalents.  The Pro Forma Net leverage ratio represents Net debt divided by Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA for the last twelve months.  Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA assumes the acquired High Temperature Sensing business had been in the results for the last twelve months.

Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure.  The Company defines Adjusted net income as follows: net income before costs associated with its debt refinancing, unrealized loss/(gain) on other hedges and loss/(gain) on currency translation on debt, amortization of inventory step-up to fair value, amortization and depreciation expense related to the step-up in fair value of fixed and intangible assets, deferred income tax and other tax expense, amortization of deferred financing costs, restructuring costs, and other costs.  The Company believes Adjusted net income provides investors with helpful information with respect to the performance of the Company's operations and management uses Adjusted net income to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Adjusted net income is not a measure of liquidity.  See the tables below which reconcile Net income/(loss) to Adjusted net income and Projected GAAP earnings per share to Projected Adjusted net income per share.

The following unaudited table reconciles the Company's Net income/(loss) to Adjusted net income for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

The Company's definition of Adjusted net income includes the current tax expense (benefit) that will be payable (realized) on the Company's income tax return and excludes deferred income tax and other tax expense.  As the Company treats deferred income tax and other tax expense as an adjustment to compute Adjusted net income, the deferred income tax effect associated with the reconciling items would not change Adjusted net income for each period presented.  The theoretical current income tax associated with the reconciling items above would be as follows:  Amortization and depreciation expense related to the step-up in fair value of fixed and intangible assets:  $0.3 million and $0.5 million; and Restructuring:  $0.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.  Amortization and depreciation expense related to the step-up in fair value of fixed and intangible assets:  $0.2 million and $0.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively.

3The following table reconciles diluted outstanding shares in accordance with GAAP to diluted outstanding shares used in the calculation of Adjusted net income per share.  The second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2011 GAAP diluted outstanding shares number excludes certain shares due to their anti-dilutive nature given the net loss.  The Company believes that including these shares in the diluted number for purposes of calculating Adjusted net income per share is more meaningful to investors.

Notes to unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income/(Loss), Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income/(Loss), Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows do not include all of the information and note disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. This information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and the interim condensed consolidated financial statements included in the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2012.  U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements.  Estimates used will change as new events occur or additional information is obtained.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  Certain reclassifications have been made to prior periods to conform to current period presentation.
