The Company had higher losses in the quarter ended December 31, 2019, by INR 994.3 million (US$ 13.9 million), on account of a negative impact of INR 213.0 million (US$ 3.0 million) due to power curtailment in Andhra Pradesh and low revenue from the Rooftop business, higher interest expense* by INR 508.5 million ($7.1 million) and higher general and administrative expense* by INR 272.8 million (US$ 3.8 million) on account of certain charges*.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 was INR 2,104.4 million (US$ 29.5 million), an increase of 15% over the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, was negatively impacted by INR 485.8 million (US$ 6.8 million) due to power curtailment in Andhra Pradesh and low revenue from the Rooftop business amounting to INR 213.0 million (US$ 3.0 million) as well as INR 272.8 million (US$3.8 million) of certain charges* included in general and administrative expenses.

*As explained below

Key Operating Metrics

Electricity generation during the quarter and nine-months ended December 31, 2019 was 685.1 million kWh and 1,995.0 million kWh, respectively, an increase of 249.7 million kWh or 57%, over the quarter ended December 31, 2018, and an increase of 786.4 million kWh, or 65%, over the nine-months ended December 31, 2018. The increase in electricity generation was principally a result of additional operating capacity during the period driven by the commissioning of new projects. The Company's Plant Load Factor "PLF" for the quarter and the nine months ended December 31, 2019, was 17.7% and 18.6%, respectively, compared to 17.9 % and 17.7%, respectively, for the same comparable periods in 2018. The lower PLF in the quarter and nine months was on account of adverse weather conditions due to an extended monsoon season. The Company during the quarter experienced lower revenue due to lower PLF in the rooftop business and some power curtailment in our Andhra Pradesh related projects.  The solar power curtailment in the state of Andhra Pradesh has been occurring since July 2019 and relates to the grid operator (Andhra Pradesh State Load Dispatch Centre) ordering reduced output. The management believes that AP power curtailment is in contempt of a recent court ruling and the company has filed for recovery.

Project cost per megawatt operating (megawatt capacity per the PPA) consists of costs incurred for one megawatt of new solar power plant capacity during the reporting period. The project cost per megawatt (DC) operating for the nine months ended December 31, 2019 decreased by INR 9.8 million (US$ 0.14 million) to INR 34.4 million (US$ 0.48 million) primarily due to lower costs on account of the reduction in solar module prices for the projects commissioned during the period. The project cost per megawatt (AC) operating for the nine months ended December 31, 2019 was INR 47.9 million (US$ 0.67 million), compared to INR 48.5 million, for the nine months ended December 31, 2018, on account of reduction in solar module prices which was partially offset by additional safeguard duties paid by the Company. Excluding the impact of safeguard duties, the DC and the AC costs per megawatt would have been lower by approximately INR 2.5 million (US$ 0.04 million) and INR 4.1 million (US$ 0.06 million), respectively.

As of December 31, 2019, the Company's operating and committed megawatts increased by 2,241 MWs to 5,300 MWs compared to December 31, 2018. During the period, the Company exited from a 70 MW project, and received a LOA for 2,000 MWs of new projects. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company secured orders to exit LOA for 150 MWs of projects, for which PPAs were not signed, reducing the operating and committed megawatts to 5,150 MW.

Nominal Contracted Payments

The Company's PPAs create long-term recurring customer payments. Nominal contracted payments equal the sum of the estimated payments that the customer is likely to make, subject to discounts or rebates, over the remaining term of the PPAs. When calculating nominal contracted payments, the Company includes those PPAs for projects that are operating or committed.

The following table sets forth, with respect to the Company's PPAs, the aggregate nominal contracted payments and total estimated energy output as of the reporting dates. These nominal contracted payments have not been discounted to arrive at the present value.

Nominal contracted payments as of December 31, 2019 increased compared to as of December 31, 2018 as the Company entered into additional PPAs or received a LOA.

Portfolio Revenue Run-Rate

Portfolio revenue run-rate equals annualized payments from customers extrapolated based on the operating and committed capacity as of the reporting dates. In estimating the portfolio revenue run-rate, the Company multiplies the PPA contract price per kilowatt hour by the estimated annual energy output for all operating and committed solar projects as of the reporting date. The estimated annual energy output of the Company's solar projects is calculated using power generation simulation software and validated by independent engineering firms. The main assumption used in the calculation is the project location, which enables the software to derive the estimated annual energy output from certain meteorological data, including the temperature and solar insolation based on the project location.

The following table sets forth, with respect to the Company's PPAs, the aggregate portfolio revenue run-rate and estimated annual energy output as of the reporting dates. The portfolio revenue run-rate has not been discounted to arrive at the present value.

Portfolio revenue run-rate increased by INR 14,090.2 million (US$ 197.2 million) to INR 37,986.6 million (US$ 531.7 million) as of December 31, 2019, as compared to December 31, 2018, due to an increase in operational and committed capacity.

Fiscal Third Quarter 2020 Period ended December 31, 2019 Consolidated Financial Results:

Operating Revenues

Operating revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 were INR 3,047.3 million (US$ 42.6 million), an increase of 25% from INR 2,430.8 million in the same period in 2018. This increase was driven by the revenue generated from projects which were commissioned during the period after December 31, 2018 until December 31, 2019. The revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 were negatively impacted by INR 213.0 million (US$ 3.0 million) due to power curtailment in Andhra Pradesh and low revenue from the Rooftop business.

The management believes that AP power curtailment is in contempt of a recent court ruling and the company has filed for recovery.

Cost of Operations (Exclusive of Depreciation and Amortization)

Cost of operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 increased by 22% to INR 266.5 million (US$ 3.7 million) from INR 219.0 million in the same period in 2018. This increase in the cost of operations was primarily due to an increase in operational expenses from projects commissioned during the period from January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019. The cost of operations per megawatt was INR 164.0 thousand (US$ 2.3 thousand) during the quarter, which was 28% lower than the same period in the prior year.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 increased by INR 302.1 million (US$ 4.2 million) to INR 676.4 million (US$ 9.5 million) compared to the same period in 2018. The higher general and administrative expenses included INR 272.8 million (US$ 3.8 million) due to charges related to management transition, interest charges on safeguard duty on import of modules, and provisions on accounts receivable.

In the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company recorded expenses of INR 59.0 million (US$ 0.8 million), related to the grant of stock appreciation rights to its CEO and President and INR 3.2 million (US$ 0.04 million) related to the grant of restricted stock units to certain Independent Directors.

Depreciation and Amortization Expenses

Depreciation and amortization expenses during the quarter ended December 31, 2019 increased by INR 240.6 million (US$ 3.4 million), or 51%, to INR 716.6 million (US$ 10.0 million) compared to the same period in 2018. The increase relates to the depreciation on capital expenditure on the 54% increase in MWs operating.

Interest Expense, Net

Net interest expense during the quarter ended December 31, 2019 increased by INR 1,334.0 million (US$ 18.7 million), or 120%, to INR 2,449.8 million (US$ 34.3 million) compared to the same period in 2018. The increase in net interest expense was primarily due to interest expense of INR 568.2 million (US$ 7.9 million) on borrowing related to new projects, charges of INR 385.0 million (US$ 5.4 million) related to settlement of existing loans from the proceeds of our issuance of solar green bonds issued in the quarter ended September 30, 2019, INR 124.0 million (US$ 1.8 million) related to the extinguishment of a debt facility and lower interest income of INR 256.4 million (US$ 3.6 million) on account of lower free cash available during the quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Loss on Foreign Currency Exchange

The Indian Rupee ("INR") depreciated against the U.S. dollar by INR 0.35 for every US$ 1.00 (or 0.5%) during the period from September 30, 2019 to December 31, 2019. During the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company incurred an expense on foreign exchange of INR 59.6 million (US$ 0.8 million) compared to INR 17.9 million, during the prior year quarter ended December 31, 2018. The Company had higher foreign exchange expenses primarily due to realized gain on foreign currency transactions in the prior comparable period, compared to a net loss in the quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense increased during the quarter ended December 31, 2019 by INR 173.0 million (US$ 2.4 million) to INR 235.5 million (US$ 3.3 million), compared to income tax expense of INR 62.5 million in the same period in 2018. The increase in the income tax expense was primarily on account of higher provision for taxes for our project entities with current year taxable profits, partially offset by the gain on account of adoption of the recently announced tax amendment.

The Taxation Laws (Amendment) Act, 2019 received the assent of the President on December 11, 2019 and published in the Gazette of India on December 12, 2019. The amendment provides an option for the companies to opt for reduced corporate tax rate of 22% provided they do not claim certain tax benefits under the Income Tax Act. The Company has opted for the reduced tax rate for the subsidiaries which are not eligible for deduction under section 80IA of the Income Tax Act. The above adoption reduced deferred tax assets by INR 191.0 million (US$ 2.6 million) and deferred tax liabilities by INR 293.0 million (US$ 4.1 million) in the financial statements for the quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Net Loss

The net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 increased by INR 1,522.5 million (US$ 21.3 million) to INR 1,357.1 million (US$ 19.0 million) compared to a net profit of INR 165.3 million for the same period in 2018. The higher losses are primarily due to higher provision for accounts receivable, management transition, write offs related to our solar green bonds issued in the previous quarter, higher income tax expenses, partially offset by higher revenue from our projects.

The Company had higher losses in the quarter ended December 31, 2019, by INR 994.3 million (US$ 13.9 million), on account of a negative impact of INR 213.0 million (US$ 3.0 million) due to power curtailment in Andhra Pradesh and low revenue from the Rooftop business, higher interest expense by INR 508.5 million ($7.1 million) and higher general and administrative expense by INR 272.8 million (US$ 3.8 million).

Cash Flow and Working Capital

Cash from operating activities for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 was INR 796.7 million (US$ 11.2 million) compared to an outflow of INR 225.4 million for the prior comparable quarter. Cash generation from operating activities for the nine months ended December 31, 2019 was INR 1,839.9 million (US$ 25.8 million) compared to an inflow of INR 789.0 million for the prior comparable period. The improvement from the comparable period in 2018 was due to an increase in operating revenue during the period ended December 31, 2019, partially offset by higher general and administrative and interest expenses.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the working capital inflow was INR 132.8 (US$ 1.8 million), compared to an outflow of INR 1,215.7 million, for the prior comparable period in 2018. During the nine months ended December 31, 2019, the working capital outflow was INR 732.4 (US$ 10.2 million), compared to an outflow of INR 2,069.0 million, for the nine months ended December 31, 2018.

The Company's days receivable improved during the current quarter and were 119 days, as of December 31, 2019, as compared to 129 days as of September 30, 2019.

Cash used in investing activities for the nine-months ended December 31, 2019 was INR 21,940.8 million (US$ 307.1 million), compared to INR 13,114.3 million for the comparable period in 2018, primarily on account of higher purchases of property plant and equipment for new solar projects amounting by INR 2,249.5 million (US$ 31.5 million) and investment in mutual funds amounting to INR 6,577.3 million (US$ 92.1 million). During the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the cash used in investing activities was INR 6,595.3 million (US$ 92.3 million), primarily on account of higher investment in mutual funds, partially offset by lower capital expenditures, compared to INR 5,565.0 million, in the comparable period in 2018. During the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company incurred INR 2,488.4 million (US$ 34.8 million) on account of capital expenditures compared to INR 8,779.0 million, in the comparable period in 2018.

Cash from financing activities was INR 15,911.5 million (US$ 222.7 million) for the nine months ended December 31, 2019 compared to INR 25,114.4 million for the comparable period in 2018, primarily due to public issuance of equity shares last year of INR 13,574.2 million against the private placement issue of INR 5,314.4 million in the current period and an outflow related to debt refinancing and hedging. Cash used in financing activities for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, was INR 13,854 million (US$ 193.9 million) compared to cash from investing activities of INR 16,657.1 million in the prior comparable period in 2018 on account of repayment of loans post issuance of solar green bonds during the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Liquidity Position

As of December 31, 2019, the Company had INR 11,310.1 million (US$ 158.3 million) of cash, cash equivalents and current investments. The Company had undrawn project debt commitments of INR 22,188.2 million (US$ 310.5 million) as of December 31, 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA was INR 2,104.4 million (US$ 29.5 million) for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, compared to INR 1,837.5 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018. The increase was primarily due to the increase in revenue during the quarter ended December 31, 2019, partially offset by higher expenses related to operations and general and administrative expenses.

The Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, was negatively impacted by INR 485.8 million (US$ 6.8 million) due to power curtailment in Andhra Pradesh and low revenue from the Rooftop business amounting to INR 213.0 million (US$ 3.0 million), as well as, INR 272.8 million (US$3.8 million) of certain charges included in general and administrative expenses.

Other Company matters

During the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company made a US$75 million private placement and issued 6,493,506 equity shares at US$11.55 per share to Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec (CDPQ).  Following this transaction, CDPQ's equity interest in the Company increased from 41.4% to 49.4%. The Company total shares outstanding increased to 47,636,078 shares outstanding as on the date of issuance.

Subsequent to the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company rightsized its employee strength. The Company does not expect any material impact on its results of operations due to the costs associated with the same.

The Company had initiated the process for buy-back of shares that it did not hold in Azure Power India Private Limited (AZI), its subsidiary. AZI sent buy-back notice to the Promoter Shareholders for buy-back of shares. The Company and its subsidiary (AZI) received an arbitration notice from the promoter shareholders claiming that share price contained in the buyback offer is not true or fair market price of the sponsor securities.

During the month of January 2020, the Company received an arbitration notice from the Promotor Shareholder regarding certain payments to be received by him, under the transition agreement. The Company disputes such payments to be made to the Promoter Shareholder and has filed its response to the notice of arbitration.

The Company is confident that the outcome of the above-mentioned ongoing arbitrations shall be favourable.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its performance. This measurement is not recognized in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be viewed as an alternative to U.S. GAAP measures of performance. The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss (income) plus (a) income tax expense, (b) interest expense, net, (c) depreciation and amortization and (d) loss (income) on foreign currency exchange (e) mutual fund income. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in assessing the Company's ongoing financial performance and provides improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's operational profitability and that may obscure underlying business results and trends. However, this measure should not be considered in isolation or viewed as a substitute for net income or other measures of performance determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Moreover, Adjusted EBITDA as used herein is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the methods of calculation.

The Company's management believes this measure is useful to compare general operating performance from period to period and to make certain related management decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by securities analysts, lenders and others in their evaluation of different companies because it excludes certain items that can vary widely across different industries or among companies within the same industry. For example, interest expense can be highly dependent on a company's capital structure, debt levels and credit ratings. Therefore, the impact of interest expense on earnings can vary significantly among companies. In addition, the tax positions of companies can vary because of their differing abilities to take advantage of tax benefits and because of the tax policies of the various jurisdictions in which they operate. As a result, effective tax rates and tax expense can vary considerably among companies.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations include:

  • it does not reflect cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments or foreign exchange gain/loss;
  • it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital;
  • it does not reflect significant interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on outstanding debt;
  • it does not reflect payments made or future requirements for income taxes; and
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced or paid in the future and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash requirements for such replacements or payments.

Investors are encouraged to evaluate each adjustment and the reasons the Company considers it appropriate for supplemental analysis. For more information, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures" at the end of this release.
