Financial Highlights:


-- Net sales for the fourth quarter were $136 million and $804.4 million
for fiscal year 2009
-- Fourth Quarter GAAP net income (loss) per share of $0.06 compared to
$(0.14) for prior quarter ended December 31, 2008
-- Fourth Quarter Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share of $(0.23) compared
to $(0.06) for prior quarter ended December 31, 2008
-- SG&A expenses declined $7.8 million compared to quarter ended March
31, 2008 and $5.2 million versus fiscal year 2008

-- Cash balance increased $13.8 million during quarter ended March 31, 2009


KEMET Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: KEME) today reported preliminary results for the fourth quarter ended March 31, 2009. Net sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2009, were $136.0 million, which is a 43.6% decrease over the same quarter last year and a 28.7% decrease over the prior quarter ended December 31, 2008. Net sales for fiscal year 2009, which includes a full year of operating results for the acquisition in October 2007 of Arcotronics Italia S.p.A., were $804.4 million which is a 5.4% decrease compared to the prior fiscal year ended March 31, 2008.


On a U.S. GAAP basis net income was $4.5 million, or $0.06 per share for the fourth fiscal quarter compared to a net loss of $20.5 million or $(0.24) per share for the same quarter last year and compares to a net loss of $11.1 million or $(0.14) per share for the prior quarter ended December 31, 2008. The Non-GAAP net loss, excluding special charges, was $18.5 million or $(0.23) per share for the current quarter compared to net loss of $2.3 million, or $(0.03) per share for the same quarter last year and compares to a net loss of $4.9 million, or $(0.06) per share for the prior quarter ended December 31, 2008.


The current quarter includes a net $28.6 million gain related primarily to the curtailment of a post-retirement benefit plan, $2.5 million of impairment charges related to long-lived assets, $1.8 million of restructuring charges and acquisition related integration expenses and $1.3 million of non-recurring interest amortization charges.


"Our industry and our business continue to be affected by the worldwide recession. Inventory management was a key focus for us during this last quarter and proved to be a success as we increased our unrestricted cash for the quarter by $13.8 million over last quarter even as our sales declined almost 29% from the prior quarter ended December 31, 2008," stated Per Loof, KEMET's Chief Executive Officer. "We may have hit the bottom in some markets and regions this past quarter, but we expect further decline in some markets through this current quarter. I am pleased by the actions we have taken recently that have strengthened our balance sheet and we continue to pursue that objective. Continued pressure on our operating cash will remain a challenge for us as we maneuver through the balance of the calendar year," continued Loof.



Management believes that investors may find it useful to review the Company's financial results that exclude special items as determined by management. These special items include impairment charges associated with goodwill and long-lived assets, integration costs incurred as a result of recent business acquisitions, restructuring charges related primarily to employee severance and equipment moves, losses incurred due to the early retirement of debt, benefit plan curtailments, non-recurring interest amortization charges, certain inventory adjustments, other non-cash acquisition related expenses, and sales or disposals of certain asset groups. Management believes that this Non-GAAP disclosure is useful to investors in that it provides a supplemental way to possibly better understand the underlying operating performance of the Company. Management uses Non-GAAP financial reporting to evaluate operating performance; however Non-GAAP financial performance should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.


The following table provides reconciliation from GAAP net income (loss) to Non-GAAP net income (loss):
