Second Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue of $202.8 million

  • Net loss of $17.0 thousand

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $16.2 million(1)

  • Adjusted Basic and Diluted Net Income per share of $0.07(1)

(1) A reconciliation of the GAAP to the most comparable Non-GAAP results is included below.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Aug. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Array Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARRY), one of the world’s largest manufacturers of ground-mounted systems used in solar energy projects, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2021 and full year 2021 guidance.

“We delivered strong financial results in the second quarter, despite a challenging supply chain environment. Revenues grew 76% year-over-year to $202.8 million reflecting continued strong demand for our products. Adjusted EBITDA grew 23% to $16.2 million compared to the same period last year. Our lower margins this quarter relative to last year reflect the higher input and logistics costs that continue to be a headwind for our industry” said Jim Fusaro, Chief Executive Officer of Array Technologies.

Mr. Fusaro continued, “I am pleased to report that given the hard work of our team to negotiate with our customers and suppliers over the past several months, we are now able to reintroduce guidance for the full year. More importantly, we have changed our business processes to reduce our exposure to future increases in commodity prices and shipping costs. That hard work and those changes are reflected in the profitability of the orders we have booked since May which have gross margins in line with what we generated last year. I am confident we are on a path to restore our gross margin to historical levels, but the improvement will be gradual as we still have legacy backlog at lower prices to burn off.”

Mr. Fusaro concluded, “I remain bullish on the long-term prospects for utility-scale solar and for Array. The transition to renewable energy is only accelerating, we have more executed contracts and awarded orders than at any time in our history and we have taken the steps that were necessary to adapt our business to the current inflationary environment. I am confident that those changes, in combination with our relentless focus on supporting our customers, will see our company emerge even stronger from the current environment than we were before.”

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Revenues increased 76% to $202.8 million compared to $114.9 million for the prior-year period, primarily driven by strong demand for our products as well as favorable comparisons to the second quarter of last year which had lower shipments as a result of the pull forward of orders into the first quarter of 2020 related to the ITC step down.

Gross profit increased 21% to $26.8 million compared to $22.2 million in the prior year period, driven primarily by higher volume in the quarter. Gross margin decreased from 19.3% to 13.2%, driven by significantly higher input and freight costs, partially offset by greater absorption of fixed costs as a result of higher sales volumes when compared to the prior year period.

Operating expenses increased to $21.1 million compared to $21.0 million during the same period in the prior year, primarily as a result of higher costs associated with being a public company and increased payroll related costs due to higher headcount which was offset by lower contingent consideration expense.

Net loss was $17 thousand compared to net income of $2.4 million during the same period in the prior year, and basic and diluted income per share were $0.00 compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.02 during the same period in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 23% to $16.2 million, compared to $13.1 million for the prior-year period.

Adjusted net income increased 19% to $8.5 million compared to $7.1 million during the same period in the prior year, and adjusted basic and diluted adjusted net income per share was $0.07 compared to $0.06 during the same period in the prior year.

Executed Contracts and Awarded Orders

Total executed contracts and awarded orders at June 30, 2021 was $882 million, representing a record level for the company.

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights and Recent Developments

  • Entered into supply agreements that fix approximately 85% of our input costs for the remainder of 2021, including nearly all of our steel requirements

  • Changed business processes to significantly reduce any gap between the time when we agree on price with our customers and when we contract for materials and components from our suppliers

  • Awarded more than $300 million in new projects during the second quarter and an additional 18 new projects totaling approximately $135 million in July 2021

  • Strengthened our executive team with the additions of Erica Brinker as our Chief Marketing Officer, Tyson Hottinger as our new Chief Legal Officer, and Ken Stacherski as our Senior Vice President of Operations

  • Entered into an agreement to sell up to $500 million of perpetual preferred stock to private equity funds managed by Blackstone Energy Partners to support our internal and external growth plans

Full Year 2021 Guidance

For the full year 2021 ending December 31, 2021, the Company expects:

  1. Revenues to be in the range of $850 million to $940 million

  2. Adjusted EBITDA(2) to be in the range of $55 million to $75 million

  3. Adjusted diluted net income per share(2) to be in the range of $0.15 to $0.25

“We are already seeing margins on new orders that are in line with our past performance and in some instances even higher. However, results for the balance of the year will continue to be impacted by the roll-off of backlog from the beginning of this year which is predominantly contracts that were priced prior to the current inflationary environment. The ‘hangover’ effect of older backlog should dissipate by the first quarter of 2022 at which point the new contracts we have signed will be reflected in our financial results,” said Nipul Patel, Chief Financial Officer of Array Technologies.

(2) A reconciliation of projected adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income per share, which are forward-looking measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, is not provided because we are unable to provide such reconciliation without unreasonable effort. The inability to provide a quantitative reconciliation is due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty predicting the occurrence, the financial impact and the periods in which the components of the applicable GAAP measures and non-GAAP adjustments may be recognized. The GAAP measures may include the impact of such items as non-cash share-based compensation, revaluation of the fair-value of our contingent consideration, and the tax effect of such items, in addition to other items we have historically excluded from adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income per share. We expect to continue to exclude these items in future disclosures of these non-GAAP measures and may also exclude other similar items that may arise in the future (collectively, “non-GAAP adjustments”). The decisions and events that typically lead to the recognition of non-GAAP adjustments are inherently unpredictable as to if or when they may occur. As such, for our 2021 outlook, we have not included estimates for these items and are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on our management’s beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Forward-looking statements include information concerning our projected future results of operations, business strategies, and industry and regulatory environment. Forward-looking statements include statements that are not historical facts and can be identified by terms such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” "seek," “should,” “will,” “would” or similar expressions and the negatives of those terms.

Array’s actual results and the timing of events could materially differ from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements as a result of certain risks and uncertainties including those described in more detail in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and other documents on file with the SEC, each of which can be found on our website www.arraytechinc.com.

Except as required by law, we assume no obligation to update these forward-looking statements, or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This presentation includes unaudited financial measures that exclude items and therefore are not in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per share. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus (i) interest expense, (ii) other (income) expense, (iii) income tax expense (benefit), (iv) depreciation expense, (v) amortization of intangibles, (vi) equity-based compensation, (vii) remeasurement of the fair value of contingent consideration, (viii) ERP implementation costs, (ix) certain legal expense, and (x) other costs. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) plus (i) amortization of intangibles, (ii) amortization of debt discount and issuance costs (iii) equity-based compensation, (iv) remeasurement of the fair value of contingent consideration, (v) ERP implementation costs, (vi) certain legal expense, (vii) other costs, and (viii) income tax (expense) benefit of adjustments. A detailed reconciliation between GAAP results and results excluding special items (“non-GAAP”) is included within this presentation. We define Adjusted Net Income per share as Adjusted Net Income divided by the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding for the applicable period.

Among other limitations, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; do not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations; do not reflect income tax expense or benefit; and other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income differently than we do, which limits their usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income on a supplemental basis. You should review the reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income below and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
