Briggs & Stratton Announces New Symphony(R) II Power Management System for its Line of Residential Standby Generators

Briggs & Stratton announced the new Symphony(R) II power management system for its line of residential standby generators. The technology is designed to provide families with the most affordable and customizable solution to keep a home's lights and appliances on during a power outage. The Symphony II system lets homeowners prioritize what in their home they need powered, by pro-actively monitoring and managing the home's backup power needs. It uses computer technology and remote power generator modules that are installed directly to a home's existing wiring. After a home seamlessly transitions from utility power to backup power, Symphony II automatically manages the distribution of power to the electrical loads -- including up to eight high-wattage items like air conditioning units, electric stoves and electric dryers -- to provide power where it's needed while preventing a generator overload. And because the Symphony II power management system communicates with the electrical circuits over the home's existing wiring, the cost of generator installation is further reduced. The Symphony II power management system is packaged with the Briggs & Stratton 100-amp or 200-amp automatic transfer switch, as well as its dual 200-amp/400-amp automatic transfer switch. Symphony II is available with the following Briggs & Stratton products: 10 kW(1), 12 kW(1), 16 kW(1), 20 kW(1), 25 kW(1), 35 kW(1), 48 kW(1) and 60 kW(1) standby generators.

For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $292,629,000 against $317,304,000 a year ago.

Additions to plant and equipment were $7,390,000 against $11,650,000 a year ago. Net debt as at September 28, 2014 was $163.1 million (total debt of $225.0 million less $61.9 million of cash), or $53.2 million higher than the $109.8 million (total debt of $225.0 million less $115.2 million of cash) at September 29, 2013. Consolidated adjusted net loss was $9.3 million, an improvement of 43% from the adjusted net loss of $16.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

Previously, the company expected net income to be in a range of $50 million to $60 million or $1.07 to $1.27 per diluted share. The company now estimating fiscal 2015 net income to be in a range of $53 million to $63 million or $1.14 to $1.35 per diluted share prior to the impact of acquisition expenses, additional share repurchases, or costs related to announced restructuring actions.
