VAN NUYS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 10, 2021 / Capstone Green Energy Corporation (www.CapstoneGreenEnergy.com) (NASDAQ:CGRN) ("Capstone," the "Company," "we" or "us"), a global leader in carbon reduction and on-site resilient green energy solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal year 2022 second quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Financial Highlights of Fiscal Year 2022 Second Quarter:

  • Total revenue in the quarter was $17.2 million, up 15%, compared to $14.9 million in the second quarter last year and total revenue for the six months ended September 30, 2021 was $33.3 million, up 14%, compared to $29.1 million for the six months ended September 30, 2020.
  • New Gross Product orders of $10.8 million in the second quarter compared to $8.2 million in the first quarter, representing a positive Book-to-Bill Ratio of 1.3:1.
  • The long-term microturbine rental fleet increased 1.0 megawatt (MW) to 13.1 MWs from 12.1 MWs during the quarter as the Company continues to execute against its plan to increase the fleet to 21.1 MWs by March 31, 2022.
  • Total cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2021 were $38.3 million, a decrease of $11.2 million, compared to $49.5 million as of March 31, 2021.
  • Net loss was $6.0 million for the quarter, compared to a net loss of $4.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was negative $2.7 million for the quarter, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of negative $1.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

"We remain laser-focused on revenue growth and our efforts are showing in the results, with year-over-year, quarter-over-quarter, and sequential revenue growth," said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Green Energy. "Growing our rental fleet is a pillar of our Energy as a Service and recurring revenue strategy, and we announced during the quarter that we expanded our long-term rental fleet from 12.1 MW to 13.1 MW, and in October we announced additional contracts for 3.2 MW of long-term rentals, and our goal of expanding the rental fleet to 17.1 MW by December 31, 2021. This is vital as we continue towards our objective of growing the fleet to 21.1 MW by March 31, 2022, the end of our fiscal year," concluded Mr. Jamison.

"Our ability to continue to grow our Energy as a Service business, which includes rentals; long-term service contracts; spare parts; and the Distributor Support Subscription fee, are all key to our long-term strategy, as these recurring revenues drive higher margins and better predictability than a traditional product sale," stated Eric Hencken, Chief Financial Officer of Capstone Green Energy.

Financial Results for Fiscal Year 2022 Second Quarter

Total revenue for the quarter was $17.2 million, an increase of $2.3 million, from $14.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Total revenue for the six months ended September 30, 2021 was $33.3 million, an increase of $4.2 million from $29.1 million in the six months ended September 30, 2020. Both the quarter and year-over-year increases were primarily due to a higher volume of both product and parts revenue, as the prior year periods were more adversely impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Gross margin as a percentage of revenue decreased to 16% in the second quarter, compared to 17% in the same period last year, primarily due to lower overhead expenses in the prior period as a result of the Company's COVID-19 Business Continuity Plan. This decrease was partially offset by higher revenues. Gross margin as a percentage of revenue decreased to 16% in the six months ended September 30, 2021, compared to 20% in the same period last year, primarily due to lower overhead expenses in the prior period as a result of the Company's COVID-19 Business Continuity Plan, which consisted of pay cuts, furloughs, and other cost-cutting measures. Additionally, Factory Protection Plan margins were higher in the six months ended September 30, 2020 primarily due to site shutdowns caused by the pandemic, which delayed servicing events.

Operating expenses for the quarter were $7.4 million, an increase of $1.9 million, from $5.5 million in the same period last year. Operating expenses for the six months ended September 30, 2021 were $13.6 million, an increase of $4.2 million from $9.4 million in the same period last year. Both the quarter and year-over-year increases were primarily due to lower overhead expenses in the prior period as a result of the Company's COVID-19 Business Continuity Plan, as well as a one-time employment related legal settlement of $0.8 million during the second quarter of fiscal 2022.

Net loss was $6.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to a net loss of $4.2 million in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA was negative $2.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to an Adjusted EBITDA of negative $1.9 million for the same period last year.

Net loss was $8.2 million for the six months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net loss of $6.0 million in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA was negative $5.0 million for the six months ended September 30, 2021, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA of negative $1.8 million for the same period last year.

Cash and cash equivalents were $38.3 million as of September 30, 2021, compared to $49.5 million as of March 31, 2021.

To supplement the company's unaudited financial data presented on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, management has presented Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. This non-GAAP financial measure is among the indicators management uses as a basis for evaluating the company's financial performance as well as for forecasting future periods. Management establishes performance targets, annual budgets and makes operating decisions based in part upon this metric. Accordingly, disclosure of this non-GAAP financial measure provides investors with the same information that management uses to understand the company's economic performance year-over-year.

EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before gain on debt extinguishment, additional PPP loan forgiveness, stock-based compensation and other expense, and legal settlements. Gain on debt extinguishment and additional PPP loan forgiveness relates to the Paycheck Protection Program loan forgiveness. Stock-based compensation and other expense includes expense related to stock issued to employees, directors, and vendors. Legal settlements represents non-recurring legal settlements for employment matters.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of the company's liquidity or financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to, net income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity.

While management believes that the non-GAAP financial measure provides useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of this measure. This measure is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation. Management compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on the company's GAAP results and by using Adjusted EBITDA only supplementally and by reviewing the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to its most comparable GAAP financial measure.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The company's non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures and should be read only in conjunction with the company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
