 Sunworks Reports First Quarter of 2019 Results
   Tuesday, May 14, 2019 4:05:00 PM ET

ROSEVILLE, Calif., May 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunworks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW), a provider of solar power solutions for agriculture, commercial and industrial (ACI), public works and residential markets, announced financial results for the first quarter of 2019 and provided its outlook for the second quarter of 2019.

First Quarter 2019 Summary:

  • Revenue of $9.3 million for the first quarter of 2019,
  • Net loss of $4.5 million,
  • Backlog of projects scheduled for installation in the next 12 months as of March 31, 2019 was $47.2 million,
  • Cash balance at March 31, 2019 was $2.0 million.

As expected, and previously conveyed, first quarter 2019 revenue and profitability were negatively impacted by seasonally rainy conditions in California, which prohibited installation activity for many of the larger agriculture and commercial projects. In addition, during the first quarter of 2019, the company experienced a number of negative impacts to gross profit including, unexpected rework on projects leading to cost overruns and a number of customer concessions for construction delays. The company also incurred expenses in the quarter for the renegotiation of terms and the cancellation of several of the older projects with unfavorable provisions agreed to in prior years.

Chuck Cargile, Sunworks' Chief Executive Officer said, “We continue to take steps to streamline our business and enhance our operations. In the first quarter, we combined our ACI and Public Works operational teams. This allows our more effective Public Works operations team to now lead our commercial efforts. This will result in cost savings from a personnel standpoint as well as ensure a more focused efficient execution of projects in backlog.”

The Company also noted that it has backlog of $47.2 million in projects scheduled for installation in the next 12 months and that this backlog carries better expected profit margins than in recent history. The backlog is supported by notable project wins with key customers and programs in 2019, including:

  • A $1.7 million project win with a key agriculture customer;
  • A $1.5 million follow-on project with key Public Works customer;
  • A $1.2 million project with a Northern California Water District;
  • Multiple follow-on projects with The International Church of the Foursquare Gospel;
  • A follow-on project for another Aldi grocery store;
  • Selected to partner with a California homebuilder for a new residential development, which is expected to lead to more than $1 million of incremental revenue in 2019;
  • Additional pipeline opportunities with key partners in public works, low income multi-tenant housing and other developers leveraging government support of residential solar expansion.

Mr. Cargile commented, “The project wins we have secured in 2019 reflect our successful focus on key accounts and follow-on business with major customers to augment our ongoing success with agriculture customers. Our pipeline of new projects is robust and provides us with optimism about continuing to build our backlog in 2019 and beyond.”

First Quarter Financial Summary (Quarter ended March 31, 2019 compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2018)

Total revenue for the quarter was $9.3 million compared to $13.4 million. Gross profit was a negative $0.6 million compared to gross profit of $2.4 million. Total operating expenses were $3.7 million compared to $4.1 million. Net loss was $4.5 million, or $0.17 per fully diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.07 per fully diluted share. 

Second Quarter 2019 Expectations:

Mr. Cargile continued, “The delays in projects and the changes in project estimates are expected to be concentrated in the first quarter of 2019 and are not expected to extend into the second and third quarters of 2019. We expect to generate revenue in the range of $18 - $22 million in each of the next two quarters and to generate positive operating income.”
