Improved Sales Execution Driving Consistent Margin Improvement;

Solcius Residential Backlog Growing and Initiatives Underway to Expand Geographic Presence

ROSEVILLE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 12, 2021 / Sunworks, Inc. (NASDAQ:SUNW), a provider of solar power and battery storage solutions for residential, agriculture, commercial, industrial, and public works markets, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. On April 8, 2021, Sunworks, acquired Solcius, LLC ("Solcius"), a privately held, rapidly growing residential solar company, for $51.8 million, creating a national solar power provider with a presence in 12 states. The financial results for the second quarter will include the operating results of Solcius, since the acquisition, with no corresponding contribution in the year-ago period.

"With the integration of Solcius largely completed, we have made meaningful progress in improving all facets of our organization," commented Gaylon Morris, Chief Executive Officer of Sunworks. "Solcius now processes all new residential projects, and we are benefiting from their scale and expertise. The increased availability of batteries is enabling us to process several jobs that have been held in backlog since 2020. Additionally, Solcius is now offering battery storage as an add-on in all markets, giving consumers a more comprehensive solution and increasing our revenue opportunity. We have expanded to the Laredo, Texas market and plan to expand into Dallas in September and Houston by the end of the year. In line with trends in this market, we are anticipating strong year-over-year growth in residential revenue."

"On the commercial and industrial side, we are focused on improving operational excellence and project execution," continued Mr. Morris. "We have increased the rigor of our work-in-progress reviews to improve project accuracy and to reduce margin challenges that impacted results in the past. Additionally, Sunworks' Public Works group has signed two large projects, 555 kW and 752.4kW, in the last two months, both the results of new developer relationships, and we anticipate continued growth in that vertical. As a part of our increased focus on growing the value of the Sunworks' brand and increasing lead generation, we are increasing our investment in both sales and marketing and will be adding additional personnel to support those area."

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights:

  • Cash balance at June 30, 2021 was $26.9 million versus $39.0 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease in the cash balance for the second quarter of 2021 is partially the result of $48.9 million of capital raised in the first quarter and the $51.8 million Sunworks paid to acquire Solcius. Additionally, cash was used to take advantage of purchase discounts for materials and fund operations.
  • Total backlog of projects as of June 30, 2021 was $64.0 million, compared to $36.1 million as of June 30, 2020.
  • Revenue was $32.1 million compared to $9.7 million in the second quarter last year, reflecting the contribution of $22.8 million in revenue from Solcius.
  • Selling and marketing expenses were $10.2 million, or 31.7% of revenue, in the second quarter compared to $1.3 million, or 13.1% of revenue in the second quarter of 2020, reflecting the Solcius residential marketing model relying on dealer relationships to source customers.
  • Paycheck Protection Program loan of $2.8 million plus accrued interest was forgiven resulting in a $2.9 million gain on extinguishment of debt recognized as other income during the quarter.
  • Operating loss was ($4.8) million versus operating loss of ($1.3) million in the second quarter of 2020. Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was ($1.9) million, or ($0.07) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of ($1.5) million, or ($0.09) per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was ($1.7) million for the second quarter compared to an Adjusted EBITDA of ($1.2) million for the second quarter of the prior year.

Second Quarter Financial Summary

Total revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $32.1 million compared to $9.7 million in the same period last year. Second quarter 2021 revenue included $22.8 in residential revenue from Solcius.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2021 was 47.2% compared to 24.9% for the second quarter of 2020, reflecting the positive contribution from Solcius' business model and operational improvements throughout the business, including increased focus on accuracy in estimating and quoting and improved execution.

Operating expenses for the second quarter were $19.9 million compared to a $3.7 million in the second quarter last year, which includes $3.0 million of non-cash expense for stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization in the current quarter.

Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was ($1.9) million, or ($0.07) per basic and diluted share (based on 27.0 million shares), compared to net loss of ($1.5) million or ($0.09) per basic and diluted share (based on 16.6 million shares) in the second quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net income (loss) excluding interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is further adjusted for non-cash stock-based compensation expense, gain on the extinguishment of PPP indebtedness, goodwill impairment and acquisition transaction expenses. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by the Company to evaluate operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions for the allocation of capital. The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA to provide information that may assist investors in understanding its financial results. However, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a substitute for net income (loss).

Certain non-GAAP financial measures are presented in this press release, including Adjusted EBITDA, to provide information that may assist investors in understanding the Company's financial results and assessing its prospects for future performance. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are important indicators of our operating performance because they exclude items that are unrelated to, and may not be indicative of, our core operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures, as we calculate them, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies and may not be appropriate measures for comparing the performance of other companies relative to the Company. These non-GAAP financial results are not intended to represent, and should not be considered to be more meaningful measures than, or alternatives to, measures of operating performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. To the extent we utilize such non-GAAP financial measures in the future, we expect to calculate them using a consistent method from period to period. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided below.
