FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 1, 2022-- Ameresco, Inc. (NYSE:AMRC), a leading cleantech integrator specializing in energy efficiency and renewable energy, today announced financial results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2022. The Company also furnished supplemental information in conjunction with this press release in a Current Report on Form 8-K. The supplemental information, which includes Non-GAAP financial measures, has been posted to the “Investors” section of the Company’s website at www.ameresco.com. Reconciliations of Non-GAAP measures to the appropriate GAAP measures are included herein.

“Ameresco, through dedication and diversification, is pleased to report another quarter of record results, with each of our four business lines posting considerable year-over-year growth. Second quarter revenue more than doubled, led by our Projects business line, which continues to benefit from the diversity and increased scale and complexity of projects in our backlog. We achieved sequential and year-over-year increases in our awarded backlog in the second quarter, reflecting Ameresco’s market share gains as well as the expansion of our addressable market. The combination of rising energy costs, the growing focus by customers on reducing their environmental impact, and the need for comprehensive energy efficient and resilient solutions has driven our bid and proposal activity to record levels in the first half of 2022.

“Together with our partner, Bright Canyon Energy, we signed a 37-year enhanced use lease with the Department of Navy and received approval for a 20-year PPA from the PUC of Hawaii that significantly expands our portfolio of Energy Assets in development. The Kūpono Solar, LLC Asset will represent the largest combined PV and battery asset ever developed and constructed by Ameresco. When complete, this asset will add capacity of 42 megawatts (MW) of clean renewable electricity and 42 MW/168 MWh of battery storage to Hawaiian Electric’s grid on the island of O’ahu. Completion is expected in early 2024. This asset marks the first time we have worked with Bright Canyon Energy Corporation, who will have an equity ownership in the asset,” commented George P. Sakellaris, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Ameresco is providing an update on the progress of the Southern California Edison (SCE) battery energy storage systems (BESS) projects. During the second quarter, we made substantial progress on the projects, achieving a number of key milestones despite Covid, supply chain, and permitting challenges. Approximately two thirds of the batteries for the projects are on site with the balance in transit. We now expect 200 to 300MW of capacity to be in service in September and continue to expect completion by the end of this year.

“Ameresco continued to be recognized by industry experts during the quarter. We were ranked number one in the Guidehouse Insights Energy as a Service (EaaS) Leaderboard report for the second consecutive year and were granted two Platinum Hermes Creative Awards for our continued ESG initiatives,” concluded George P. Sakellaris, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Second Quarter Financial Results

(All financial result comparisons made are against the prior year period unless otherwise noted.)

Total revenue increased 111% with growth across all of the Company's lines of business. Project revenue increased 149% as we continued to execute on the SCE projects while certain other projects progressed ahead of our expectations. Continued growth in our operating energy asset base and increased performance from our existing assets drove Energy Asset revenue up 16%. Other revenue grew 15% with strength in integrated PV sales, and O&M revenue increased over 7%. Gross margin was 14.1%, in line with our expectations, reflecting the impact from the higher revenue contribution from our lower margin SCE design/build projects. Revenue performance combined with the Company’s strong operating leverage enhanced net income to $32.2 million, representing a 136% increase, and Adjusted EBITDA to $60.3 million, a 75% increase. The results for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 reflect a non-cash downward adjustment of $0.7 million and $4.2 million, respectively, related to non-controlling interest activities.

Working capital increased in-line with our expectations during the quarter due to the execution of our large SCE design/build projects. We collected a milestone payment of $33 million from SCE subsequent to the end of Q2.

  • Ameresco continued to grow its Assets in Development, bringing the total to 477 MWe. After subtracting the partner’s minority interests, Ameresco’s owned capacity of Assets in Development is 436 MWe.
  • The Company, along with our equity partner Bright Canyon, announced the Kūpono Solar joint venture, a 42 MW photovoltaic solar array and 42 MW/168 MWh lithium-ion battery storage system with a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Hawaiian Electric.
  • Ameresco completed a 6.9 MW DC PV asset for off-taker GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare who will purchase renewable electricity from the asset as part of a 17-year PPA.

Summary and Outlook

Ameresco continues to deliver record results, while building the foundation for robust long-term growth. With our acknowledged technological expertise and proven track record, we are moving ahead to capture the expanding opportunities on the horizon, with a flexible business model that provides significant visibility,” Mr. Sakellaris noted.

“We are pleased to reiterate our 2022 guidance for year-over-year revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, and Non-GAAP EPS growth of 52%, 34%, and 26%, respectively, at the midpoints of our guidance ranges. We anticipate that Q3 revenue will be slightly greater than that of Q4, and second half 2022 gross margins will be approximately 18%. During 2022, we anticipate placing between 60 and 80 MWe of energy assets in service, while investing approximately $225 million to $275 million of capital, the majority of which we expect to fund with non-recourse debt.” Mr. Sakellaris concluded.

(1) Although net income is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, this table reconciles adjusted EBITDA to operating income because we are not able to calculate forward-looking net income without unreasonable efforts due to significant uncertainties with respect to the impact of accounting for our redeemable non-controlling interests and taxes.

Exhibit A: Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use the Non-GAAP financial measures defined and discussed below to provide investors and others with useful supplemental information to our financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. These Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to any measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. For a reconciliation of these Non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, please see Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Non-GAAP Financial Guidance in the tables above.

We understand that, although measures similar to these Non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by investors and securities analysts in their evaluation of companies, they have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures or an analysis of our results of operations as reported under GAAP. To properly and prudently evaluate our business, we encourage investors to review our GAAP financial statements included above, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to common shareholders, including impact from redeemable non-controlling interests, before income tax (benefit) provision, other expenses net, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, accretion of asset retirement obligations, contingent consideration expense, stock-based compensation expense, energy asset impairment, restructuring and other charges, gain or loss on sale of equity investment, and gain or loss upon deconsolidation of a variable interest entity. We believe adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance for the following reasons: adjusted EBITDA and similar Non-GAAP measures are widely used by investors to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon financing and accounting methods, book values of assets, capital structures and the methods by which assets were acquired; securities analysts often use adjusted EBITDA and similar Non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies; and by comparing our adjusted EBITDA in different historical periods, investors can evaluate our operating results without the additional variations of depreciation and amortization expense, accretion of asset retirement obligations, contingent consideration expense, stock-based compensation expense, impact from redeemable non-controlling interests, restructuring and asset impairment charges. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA stated as a percentage of revenue.

Our management uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as measures of operating performance, because they do not include the impact of items that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance; for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of the business; to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies; and in communications with the board of directors and investors concerning our financial performance.

Non-GAAP Net Income and EPS

We define Non-GAAP net income and earnings per share (EPS) to exclude certain discrete items that management does not consider representative of our ongoing operations, including energy asset impairment, restructuring and other charges, impact from redeemable non-controlling interest, gain or loss on sale of equity investment, and gain or loss upon deconsolidation of a variable interest entity. We consider Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP EPS to be important indicators of our operational strength and performance of our business because they eliminate the effects of events that are not part of the Company's core operations.

Adjusted Cash from Operations

We define adjusted cash from operations as cash flows from operating activities plus proceeds from Federal ESPC projects. Cash received in payment of Federal ESPC projects is treated as a financing cash flow under GAAP due to the unusual financing structure for these projects. These cash flows, however, correspond to the revenue generated by these projects. Thus we believe that adjusting operating cash flow to include the cash generated by our Federal ESPC projects provides investors with a useful measure for evaluating the cash generating ability of our core operating business. Our management uses adjusted cash from operations as a measure of liquidity because it captures all sources of cash associated with our revenue generated by operations.
