Press Release Dated March 31, 2014, Of EnerSys Regarding Its 3.375% Convertible Senior Notes Will Continue To Be Convertible From April 1, 2014 Through June 30, 2014

READING, Pa., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- EnerSys (NYSE: ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, announced today that its 3.375% Convertible Senior Notes due 2038 (CUSIP 29275YAA0) ("Convertible Notes") will continue to be convertible from April 1, 2014 through June 30, 2014. These Convertible Notes became convertible for the first time on January 2, 2014.  As provided in the indenture under which the Convertible Notes were issued, the Convertible Notes will continue to be convertible because the last sale price of EnerSys' common stock price for at least 20 trading days in a period of 30 consecutive trading days ending on the last trading day of the calendar quarter ended March 31, 2014 exceeded 130% of the conversion price per share of EnerSys' common stock on such last trading day.  EnerSys also notified the trustee and holders of the Convertible Notes that the conversion rate as of April 1, 2014 is 24.8385 shares of its common stock per $1,000 in principal amount of the Convertible Notes due to the cumulative impact of cash dividends paid on EnerSys' common stock, which conversion rate may be adjusted in accordance with the terms of the Convertible Notes and the indenture under which the Convertible Notes were issued.

Upon conversion of the Convertible Notes, as permitted by the terms of the Convertible Notes and the indenture under which the Convertible Notes were issued, EnerSys may settle conversions (i) entirely in shares of its common stock, (ii) entirely in cash, or (iii) (a) in cash for the accreted principal amount of the Convertible Notes and (b) shares of its common stock, or cash and shares of its common stock, for the excess, if any, of the conversion value above the accreted principal amount.  EnerSys currently intends to settle the principal amount of any conversions during the calendar quarter ending June 30, 2014 in cash and any additional conversion consideration at the conversion rate then applicable in cash or shares of its common stock or a combination of cash and shares.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
