Enphase Energy Reports Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

PETALUMA, Calif., Aug. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enphase Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENPH) announced today financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Second Quarter 2013 Highlights

  • Revenue of $58.2 million, up 28% sequentially
  • Record non-GAAP gross margin of 28.1%, up 360 basis points year-over-year
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses flat sequentially at $20.4 million

Enphase Energy reported total revenue for the second quarter of $58.2 million, an increase of 28 percent compared to the first quarter of 2013. This also represents an increase of 4 percent compared to revenue of $55.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, which included approximately $19 million of revenue associated with shipments related to the expiring Section 1603 grant program. Excluding these 1603 related units, revenue increased over 58 percent year-over-year.

Revenue generated outside of the United States continued to increase, and accounted for over 20 percent of total revenue, up from roughly 15 percent in the first quarter of 2013 and 10 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Units sold in the second quarter of 2013 totaled 399,000.

GAAP gross margin for the second quarter of 2013 was a record 28.0 percent. Non-GAAP gross margin was a record 28.1 percent, an increase of 360 basis points when compared to 24.5 percent in the second quarter of 2012.

GAAP operating expenses for the second quarter were $21.8 million. Non-GAAP operating expenses were $20.4 million, which is flat compared to both the first quarter of 2013 and the fourth quarter of 2012.

Second quarter of 2013 GAAP net loss was $6.4 million, or a loss of $0.15 per share. On a non-GAAP basis, the net loss was $4.8 million, or a loss of $0.12 per share.

The Company exited the quarter with a total cash balance of $34.0 million.

"Our second quarter financial results provide tangible evidence of the progress we are making in the execution of our key initiatives," commented Paul Nahi, CEO of Enphase. "Once again, we improved our gross margins posting a Company record 28.1%, while continuing to maintain tight control over operating expenses, which we kept flat for the third consecutive quarter. We also made great strides in improving cash flow from operations."

Mr. Nahi continued, "The recognition we have received as the #1 residential inverter supplier in the Americas by revenue share and the #1 power electronics monitoring provider worldwide by number of new sites for 2012, along with the progress we are making in the international markets further validate the value proposition of the Enphase microinverter system."

"The release of our fourth generation microinverter system combined with surpassing one terawatt-hour of clean energy production from Enphase systems is further evidence of our market and technology leadership," he added.

Business Highlights

  • Introduction of the fourth generation microinverter system at Intersolar North America in July, which includes the new M250 Microinverter and software platform products MyEnlighten and Enlighten Manager.
  • Named #1 residential inverter supplier in the Americas for 2012 by IHS Research by share of revenue.
  • Named #1 power electronics monitoring provider in the world by number of new sites in 2012 by GTM Research with Enlighten, the Company's intelligent monitoring software platform.
  • Achievement of an important milestone, passing one terawatt-hour of clean energy production by its microinverters as reported by Enlighten.
  • Entered into strategic relationship with Lennar, through its newly created subsidiary, SunStreet Energy Group, to provide microinverters to the new home construction market.

Business Outlook

"Looking forward, we expect revenue for the third quarter of 2013 to be within a range of $59 million to $63 million," said Kris Sennesael, CFO of Enphase. "We expect the sequential increase in the third quarter revenue to be muted partially due to an anticipated reduction in inventory levels within our distribution channel, as a result of the transition from the third to the fourth generation microinverter system."

Mr. Sennesael continued, "Turning to gross margin, we expect the third quarter gross margin to be within a range of 27 percent to 29 percent. As is the case with each new generation product, the transition to the M250 microinverter system is expected to drive further cost improvements and have a positive margin impact as volume ramps. In the mean time, we will continue to hold the line on our operating expenses and expect the non-GAAP operating expenses for the third quarter of 2013 to be roughly flat compared to the second quarter of 2013."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has presented certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP. Reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure can be found in the accompanying tables to this press release. These non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, differ from GAAP measures with the same captions and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar captions that are used by other companies. As such, these non-GAAP measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures to analyze its operating performance and future prospects, develop internal budgets and financial goals, and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. Enphase believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of its operations that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business.
