FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ameresco, Inc. (NYS: AMRC) a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, today announced financial results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013. The Company has also furnished prepared remarks in conjunction with this press release in a Current Report on Form 8-K. The prepared remarks contain supplemental information, including non-GAAP financial metrics, and have been posted to the "Investor Relations" section of the Company's website at www.ameresco.com.
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2013 decreased to $126.3 million from $164.1 million, or 23%, for the same period in 2012. Second quarter operating income decreased from $8.3 million for 2012 to an operating loss of $1.9 million for 2013. Second quarter adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, decreased from $13.9 million for 2012 to $3.3 million for 2013. Second quarter net income decreased from $4.8 million for 2012 to a net loss of $1.8 million for 2013. Second quarter 2013 net loss per diluted share was $0.04, compared to net income per diluted share of $0.10 for 2012.
"Revenue below our expectations negatively impacted profitability for the quarter," stated George P. Sakellaris, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ameresco. "We remain focused on delivering stronger results for the second half of 2013. Based upon current performance and visibility into the second half, we are expecting to return to revenue growth and profitability in the third and fourth quarters."
For the six months year-to-date ended June 30, 2013, total revenue decreased to $236.4 million from $310.7 million, or 24%, for the same period in 2012. Year-to-date operating income decreased from $11.7 million for 2012 to an operating loss of $4.0 million for 2013. Year-to-date adjusted EBITDA decreased from $23.1 million for 2012 to $7.6 million for 2013. Year-to-date net income decreased from $6.6 million for 2012 to a net loss of $3.7 million for 2013. Net loss per diluted share was $0.08, compared to net income per diluted share of $0.14 for 2012.
Additional Second Quarter 2013 Operating Highlights:
- Revenue generated from backlog was $80.0 million for the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of 33% year-over-year.
- All other revenue was $46.3 million for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 3% year-over-year.
- Operating cash flows were $6.9 million for the second quarter of 2013.
- Total construction backlog was $1.4 billion as of June 30, 2013 and consisted of:
- $324.0 million of fully-contracted backlog of signed customer contracts for installation or construction of projects, which we expect to convert into revenue over the next 12-24 months, on average; and
- $1.1 billion of awarded projects representing projects in development for which we do not have signed contracts. Historically, awarded projects have converted to signed contracts over 6-12 months on average. However, we have been experiencing an unusually sustained lengthening of conversion times of awarded projects to signed contracts, a trend we expect to continue.
FY 2013 Guidance
Based upon year-to-date performance and visibility into the second half of 2013, Ameresco is narrowing our guidance range for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2013. We now expect to earn total revenue in the range of $620 million to $640 million. We expect net income for 2013 to be in the range of $18 million to $21 million. Our 2013 guidance is based upon the following assumptions: modest to strong revenue growth within a few regions; several project delays that are expected to impact timing of revenue recognition; an improvement in fully-contracted backlog in the second half; more than 5% year-over-year revenue growth from our all other offerings; and maintaining operating expenses slightly below the current run rate.
Ameresco will hold its earnings conference call today, August 8th, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time with President and Chief Executive Officer, George Sakellaris, and Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Andrew Spence, to discuss details regarding the Company's second quarter 2013 results, business outlook and strategy.
