"The third quarter of fiscal 2022 was highlighted by record revenue of $48.2 million, driven by seamless integration of our rapidly growing, high-margin acquisitions and our evolution into a truly national brand," said David Massey, Chief Executive Officer of Solar Integrated Roofing Corporation. "The rapid pace of our acquisitions, partnerships and organic sales growth has enabled this incredible record revenue achievement, and we aim towards substantially exceeding our fairly conservative guidance for $100 million in revenue in the twelve months ended May 31, 2022. However, this is only a fraction of the run-rate I believe we can achieve by the end of this calendar year with significant sequential growth expected throughout CY2022. It is impossible for me to overstate what a triumphant accomplishment this quarter represents, serving as both a milestone and a turning point in the company's history. We continue to focus on integration of our acquired companies, allowing us to capture the full revenue lifecycle of our customers while bringing new synergies and efficiencies across the SIRC family of companies.
"Our prominent national brand and accomplishments have helped to attract new partnerships across a wide variety of industries, utilizing our products and expertise across solar, battery backup, EV charging and roofing installation. From EV power charging stations, to powering water harvesting products, to enabling cleaner poultry farming - our diverse array of end-customers continues to amaze us as they identify exciting, unique use cases for our clean energy solutions.
"As we transition into CY2022, we look forward to completing the next phase of our journey by implementing a name change to SolarEV and a planned ticker change to POWR. While our record quarter clearly demonstrates proven success in solar, we intend to redouble our efforts to become an equally dominant, national player in the EV charging space, with an eye towards exponential, dual-industry growth and an improved focus on generating shareholder value.
"Looking ahead, empowered by a recent equity purchase agreement with Arbiter Bank, we are setting off on the next leg in our acquisition journey. We have identified several extremely promising candidates with healthy potential at attractive prices that require no dilution whatsoever to our shareholders.
"Finally, we will continue and improve upon our ongoing efforts to engage with our shareholders through our frequent Q&A events and presentations. As CEO, I have never been more excited to see what the future holds for our beloved company. I would like to personally thank each and every one of our valued shareholders for their support in making our successful transition to an industry powerhouse possible," concluded Massey.
