1023 Days ago

--Reports Positive Operating Income--

ROSEVILLE, Calif., Aug. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunworks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW), a provider of solar power solutions for agriculture, commercial and industrial (ACI), public works and residential markets, today announced financial results for the second quarter and first half of the year ended June 30, 2019.

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights:

  • Revenue for the second quarter of 2019 more than doubled compared to the first quarter of 2019, increasing from $9.3 million to $18.7 million.
  • Income before Other Expenses (Operating Income) for the second quarter of 2019 was $0.1 million versus a loss of ($4.3) million in the first quarter of 2019. Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was ($0.1) million, or ($0.0) per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of ($4.5) million, or ($0.17) per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expense (Adjusted EBITDA) was $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2019 versus an Adjusted EBITDA loss of ($4.1) million in the first quarter of 2019. 
  • Gross margin was 19.5% for the second quarter of 2019, marking the highest level since the second quarter of 2017.
  • Backlog of projects scheduled for installation in the next 12 months as of June 30, 2019 was $45.9 million compared to $47.2 million as of March 31, 2019.
  • Cash balance at June 30, 2019 was $3.5 million versus $2.0 million at March 31, 2019. The company noted that the increase in the cash balance for the second quarter of 2019 was partially due to the At-the-Market (“ATM”) equity issuance which resulted in a combined sale of 1.2 million shares of common stock for proceeds of $0.8 million.

Chuck Cargile, Sunworks Chief Executive Officer said, “Our second quarter 2019 results reflect a solid rebound from the seasonally weak financial results in the first quarter of 2019. Our positive operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2019 marks the third time in the last four quarters that we have reported a positive result. Our gross margin reached its highest level in two years and our cash balance increased during the quarter, as a result of the positive operating results we achieved as well as our ability to access liquidity from our shelf registration. We are focused on delivering positive financial results and cash flow generation in the second half of 2019.” 

2019 Expectations:

  • Management noted that although it is difficult to predict the timing of installation revenue on a quarter by quarter basis, the company expects to generate slightly higher sequential revenue in the third quarter of 2019 – in the range of $19 million to $22 million.
  • Management expects the company to again generate positive operating income for the third quarter of 2019.

Second Quarter Financial Summary

Total revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $18.7 million compared to $20.0 million in the same period last year. Second quarter 2019 revenue was higher, year-over-year for both ACI and residential, but these increases were more than offset by a reduction of revenue for public works, as compared to the record setting revenue for public works for the prior year second quarter.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2019 was 19.5% compared to 14.5% for the second quarter of 2018. The improved gross margin was due to improved efficiencies across ACI, residential and public works and reflect the company’s ongoing focus on enhancing operational execution.

Operating expenses excluding stock-based compensation, were $3.4 million for the second quarter of 2019, marking a slight decrease from $3.7 million in the second quarter of 2018. The second quarter 2019 operating expenses, excluding stock-based compensation, of $3.4 million marks the lowest total since the second quarter of 2016 and reflects the company’s ongoing focus on efficiency and management of costs. 

Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was ($0.1) million, or ($0.00) per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of ($1.8) million or ($0.07) per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2018.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company’s management believes that the non-GAAP measure of “Adjusted EBITDA” enhance an investor’s overall understanding of the Company’s financial and operating performance and its future prospects by (i) being more reflective of core operating performance and (ii) being more comparable with financial results over various periods. This measure, when used in conjunction with related financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), provide investors with an additional financial analytical framework that may be useful in assessing the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. The Company’s management uses this financial measure for strategic decision making, forecasting future financial results, and evaluating current period financial and operating performance. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Furthermore, this measure is not intended to be a liquidity measure. Other companies, including other companies in the Company’s industry, may not use this measure or may calculate this measure differently than the Company does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. The Company intends to calculate this non-GAAP financial measure in a consistent manner from period to period. A reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided under the heading “Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation” in the financial statement tables attached to this press release.
