Factors to Note
Bloom Energy expects fourth-quarter Acceptances (1 acceptance would be 100 kilowatts) in the range of 355-385 and average sales price (per kilowatt) within $5,920-$6,220.
Since the company’s server produces electricity on site, it avoids distribution and transmission costs and enables customers to lower expenses. As a consequence, Acceptances for the to-be-reported quarter indicates a significant increase from 257 recorded in the comparable year-ago quarter.
Bloom Energy’s collaboration with Samsung Heavy Industries has opened a new market with huge opportunities for the company.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the quarter’s revenues and earnings is pegged at $268.3 million and 1 cent per share, respectively.
