ITEM 7.01            Regulation FD Disclosure.


The presentation furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto, which was posted to the Stoneridge, Inc. website on January 10, 2017, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing. In addition, the exhibit furnished herewith contains statements intended as “forward-looking statements” that are subject to the cautionary statements about forward-looking statements set forth in such exhibit.


The presentation material contains the non-GAAP financial measure, Adjusted Earnings Per Share (“Adjusted EPS”).  Management believes that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure used in the presentation material is useful to both management and investors in their analysis of the Company’s results of operations and expected results of operations because the Adjusted EPS facilitates a period to period comparison of operating results by excluding business realignment charges.  This non-GAAP measure, however, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most comparable GAAP measure.  Investors are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures utilized by the Company may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and Adjusted EPS should not be considered a substitute for Earnings Per Share prepared in accordance with GAAP.
