SPI Solar Announces Second-Quarter 2013 Financial Results

SPI Solar Announces Second-Quarter 2013 Financial Results

ROSEVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SPI Solar ("SPI") (SOPW:OTCBB), a vertically integrated photovoltaic ("PV") solar developer, today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Total net sales for the second quarter of 2013 were $4.2 million, compared with $24.4 million for the second quarter of 2012. Construction starts with KDC Solar in New Jersey resumed in Q2 for the previously announced Imclone and Mountain Creek projects. Prospects for new projects beyond the current pipeline continue to be impacted by financial lending and solar industry conditions in general.

Total cost of goods sold for the second quarter of 2013 was $3.3 million, compared with $20.9 million for the second quarter of 2012. This reflected fewer projects initiated or completed during the second-quarter 2013 period, and the corresponding decrease in revenue.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2013 were $7.4 million, compared with $6.3 million for the second quarter of 2012. Second quarter 2013 general and administrative expenses included one-time charges of $3.0 million for a bad debt reserve related to the pending collectability of a private solar project in New Jersey and $750,000 in impairment charges resulting from a change to extended payment conditions on the Greece projects. Without these one-time charges, the decline in operating expenses reflected the continued cost-reduction measures undertaken by the company.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2013 was $6.8 million, or ($0.03) per basic and diluted share. This compared with a net loss of $2.1 million, or ($0.01) per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012.

Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2013 were $0.2 million, compared with $17.8 million at December 31, 2012. During the first quarter of 2013, $13.0 million of construction funds provided by China Development Bank were drawn down and sent to KDC Solar to cover construction costs for the Imclone project. Short-term cash continues to be tight as the company has large amounts of pending accounts receivables from customers awaiting bank debt term financing for SPI-constructed and commissioned projects in Greece and New Jersey.

Business Outlook:

As noted in SPI Solar's fourth-quarter 2012 news release on April 3, 2013, due to difficult solar industry conditions in general, company-specific issues related to structuring third-party project financing, and delays in construction starts and completions, SPI Solar believes that providing a business outlook is not meaningful at this time. While the company will continue to file financial reports and issue earnings releases, it will not during the near term continue to hold quarterly earnings teleconferences. Should circumstances change or the markets become more predictable, SPI Solar will update investors through its reports and may re-institute quarterly earnings teleconferences.
