Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

Exide Technologies (the “Company”) presented to various lenders under its super priority debtor-in-possession credit facility (“DIP Credit Facility”) a summary of its request for the twelfth amendment to the DIP Credit Facility. A summary of the amendment request is attached to this report as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information in Item 7.01 of this report is being furnished, not filed, pursuant to Regulation FD. Accordingly, the information in Item 7.01 of this report will not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement filed by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, unless specifically identified therein as being incorporated therein by reference. The furnishing of the information in this report is not intended to, and does not, constitute a determination or admission by the Company that the information in this report is material or complete, or that investors should consider this information before making an investment decision with respect to any security of the Company or any of its affiliates.

Safe Harbor for Forward Looking Statements

Some of the statements in Exhibit 99.1 contain “forward-looking statements” as defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements that address activities, events or developments that we intend, expect, plan, project, believe or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements.

Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements of plans and objectives of the Company or its management or Board of Directors. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward looking statements include, but are not limited to, general factors such as: (i) the ability of the Company to confirm and consummate the Chapter 11 plan of reorganization or obtain additional financing, and (ii) the risk factors or uncertainties listed from time to time in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (including, without limitation, those risk factors described in the Company’s fiscal 2014 Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014) and with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in connection with the Company’s Chapter 11 filing.
