and adjusted EPS guidance for FY-17

HENGELO, The Netherlands, July 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensata
Technologies (NYSE:ST) today announced financial results for its second
quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017.

Revenue in the second quarter of 2017 was $839.9 million, an increase of $12.3
million, or 1.5%, from revenue of $827.5 million in the second quarter of
2016. Excluding a 2.1% negative effect from changes in foreign exchange rates,
Sensata reported organic revenue growth of 3.6% in the second quarter of 2017.

Net income in the second quarter of 2017 grew 21.3% totaling $79.5 million,
which was 9.5% of revenue or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to net income
of $65.5 million in the second quarter of 2016, which was 7.9% of revenue or
$0.38 per diluted share. Adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2017
grew 11.8%, totaling $139.0 million, which was 16.6% of revenue or $0.81 per
diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $124.3 million in the second
quarter of 2016, which was 15.0% of revenue or $0.73 per diluted share.
Changes in foreign exchange rates reduced Sensata's adjusted earnings per

period.

“We were pleased with the organic revenue growth and robust margin expansion
we delivered in the second quarter of 2017,” said Martha Sullivan, President
and Chief Executive Officer.  “Our performance was driven by double-digit
organic revenue growth in our heavy vehicle & off road business and strong
demand in Asia across both of our segments.  The positive effects of our core
productivity initiatives combined with the improved profitability of our
acquired businesses are helping to drive our margin improvement.  For the
first half of 2017, we have generated 3.6% organic revenue growth, expanded
adjusted EBIT margins by 100 basis points, and reported 12% organic growth in
adjusted EPS.  As a result, we are raising our full year 2017 guidance for
revenue and adjusted EPS.”

Revenue in the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $1,647.1 million, an
increase of $23.1 million, or 1.4%, from revenue of $1,624.1 million in the
six months ended June 30, 2016. Excluding a 2.2% negative effect from changes
in foreign exchange rates, Sensata reported organic revenue growth of 3.6% in
the six months ended June 30, 2017.

Net income in the six months ended June 30, 2017 grew 19.9% totaling $151.2
million, which was 9.2% of revenue or $0.88 per diluted share compared to net
income of $126.1 million in the six months ended June 30, 2016, which was 7.8%
of revenue or $0.74 per diluted share. Adjusted net income in the six months
ended June 30, 2017 grew 9.7% totaling $260.5 million, which was 15.8% of
revenue or $1.52 per diluted share compared to adjusted net income of $237.5
million in the six months ended June 30, 2016, which was 14.6% of revenue or
$1.39 per diluted share. Changes in foreign exchange rates reduced Sensata's
adjusted earnings per share by ($0.04) in the six months ended June 30, 2017
compared to the prior year period.

Guidance

Sensata anticipates revenue to be between $781 and $817 million in the third
quarter of 2017 compared to $789.8 million in the third quarter of 2016.
Additionally, the Company expects adjusted net income to be between $133 and
$139 million and adjusted earnings per share to be between $0.77 and $0.81 in
the second quarter of 2017. Sensata expects to incur approximately $1 to $2
million of integration-related expenses in the third quarter of 2017.

For the full year 2017, the Company has increased the low end and midpoint of
its previous guidance range for revenue and adjusted EPS.  Sensata expects
revenue to be between $3.214 and $3.290 billion, which would represent organic
revenue growth of between 2 and 3 percent. For full year 2017, Sensata expects
adjusted EBIT to be between $741 and $755 million. Additionally, the Company
expects adjusted net income to be between $537 million and $551 million and
adjusted earnings per share to be between $3.12 and $3.20 for full year 2017,
which would represent organic earnings growth of 9 to 12 percent. Sensata
currently expects that changes in foreign currency exchange rates will lower
revenue by approximately $32 million, a slight improvement from its previous
guidance due to subsequent movements of foreign exchange rates.  The company
expects that changes in foreign exchange rates will lower adjusted earnings
per share by ($0.02) to ($0.03) for the full year 2017, which is unchanged
from its previous guidance. Sensata expects to incur approximately $19 to $20
million of integration-related expenses for the full year 2017.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined in
accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) with
certain non-GAAP financial measures. We use these non-GAAP financial measures
internally to make operating and strategic decisions, including the
preparation of our annual operating plan, evaluation of our overall business
performance, and as a factor in determining compensation for certain
employees. We believe presenting non-GAAP financial measures is useful for
period-over-period comparisons of underlying business trends and our ongoing
business performance. We also believe presenting these non-GAAP measures
provides additional transparency into how management evaluates our business.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as supplemental in nature and
are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related
financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, our
non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as, or comparable to, similar
non-GAAP measures presented by other companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures referenced by Sensata in this release include:
adjusted net income, adjusted net income margin, adjusted earnings per share
(“EPS”), adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (“EBIT”), adjusted EBIT
margin, free cash flow, net debt, organic revenue growth, and segment profit
margin measured on a constant currency basis.  We also refer to the change of
certain non-GAAP measures, usually reported either as a percentage or number
of basis points, between two periods and measured on either a reported or an
organic basis, the latter of which excludes the impact of acquisitions, net of
exited businesses that occurred within the previous 12 months and the effect
of foreign currency exchange rate differences between the comparative
periods.  Such reported changes are also considered non-GAAP measures.

Adjusted net income is defined as net income, determined in accordance with
U.S. GAAP, excluding certain non-GAAP adjustments which are described in the
accompanying reconciliation tables. Adjusted net income margin is calculated
by dividing adjusted net income by net revenue. Adjusted EPS is calculated by
dividing adjusted net income by the number of diluted weighted-average
ordinary shares outstanding in the period. We believe that these measures are
useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and
in analysis of ongoing operating trends.

Adjusted EBIT is defined as net income, determined in accordance with U.S.
GAAP, excluding interest expense, net, provision for/(benefit from) income
taxes, and certain non-GAAP adjustments which are described in the
accompanying reconciliation tables. Adjusted EBIT margin is calculated by
dividing adjusted EBIT by net revenue. We believe that these measures are
useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and
in analysis of ongoing operating trends.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities,
determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, less additions to property, plant,
and equipment and capitalized software. We believe that this measure is useful
to investors and management as a measure of cash generated by business
operations that will be used to repay scheduled debt maturities and can be
used to fund acquisitions, repurchase ordinary shares, or accelerate the
repayment of debt obligations.

Net debt is defined as total debt, capital lease and other financing
obligations, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, less cash and cash
equivalents. We believe that this measure is useful to investors and
management as an indicator of trends in our overall financial condition.

Organic revenue growth is defined as the reported percentage change in net
revenue, determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding the impact of
acquisitions, net of exited businesses that occurred within the previous 12
months and the effect of foreign currency exchange rate differences between
the comparative periods. We believe that this measure is useful to investors
and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of
ongoing operating trends.

Segment profit margin measured on a constant currency basis is defined as
segment profit, excluding the favorable or unfavorable impact of foreign
currency exchange rate differences with the comparative (prior) period,
divided by segment revenue, also adjusted to exclude the favorable or
unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate differences with the
comparative (prior) period. We believe that this measure is useful to
investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in
analysis of ongoing operating trends.

Sensata's definition of adjusted net income excludes the deferred provision
for/(benefit from) income taxes and other tax expense/(benefit). Sensata's
deferred provision for/(benefit from) income taxes includes:  adjustments for
book-to-tax basis differences, due primarily to the step-up in fair value of
fixed and intangible assets and goodwill, the utilization of net operating
losses, and adjustments to our U.S. valuation allowance in connection with
certain acquisitions. Other tax expense/(benefit) includes certain adjustments
to unrecognized tax positions.

As Sensata treats deferred income taxes as an adjustment to compute adjusted
net income, the deferred income tax effect associated with the reconciling
items, above, would not change adjusted net income for any period presented.

The current income tax (benefit)/expense associated with the reconciling items
above, which is included in adjusted net income, would be as follows:
Depreciation and amortization expense related to the step-up in fair value of
fixed and intangible assets and inventory: $(0.0) million for the three months
ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 and $(0.0) million and $(0.1) million for the six
months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively; and Restructuring and
special charges: $(0.1) million and $(0.3) million for the three months ended
June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $(0.2) million and $(0.3) million
for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

* We are unable to predict movements in commodity prices and, therefore, the
impact of mark-to-market adjustments on our commodity forward contracts to our
projected 2017 diluted net income per share.  In prior periods, such
adjustments have been significant to our reported GAAP earnings.
