Fourth Quarter Highlights and Recent Developments

  • Fourth quarter revenue of $101.7 million, up 92% q/q; 130% y/y;

  • Launched turnkey DG offering for sub 20MW market

  • Added three new SunPath contracts

  • Continue to target strong ~62% revenue growth in 2022

  • Announced acquisition of international tracker company, HX Tracker, positioned to create value for our customers and shareholders

AUSTIN, Texas, March 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTC Solar, Inc. (Nasdaq: FTCI), a fast-growing global provider of solar tracker systems, software and engineering services, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021.

“We’re pleased to report that revenue for the fourth quarter came in above the high-end of our guidance range, along with operating expenses that were in-line with our expectations,” said Sean Hunkler, FTC Solar President and Chief Executive Officer. “With the recording of a reserve for a potential customer credit impacting revenue and margin by $3 million, Adjusted EBITDA was at the low end of our guidance range. Absent that charge, the sequential gross margin improvement would have been even greater and Adjusted EBITDA above the midpoint of the range. Looking ahead to full year 2022, our outlook remains unchanged, which at the mid-point represents revenue growth of 62%, which we believe would outpace the overall growth of the market.”

Hunkler added, “Our fourth quarter results marked a solid finish to a productive year for FTC Solar. We delivered 44% annual revenue growth as we significantly increased customer penetration, won our first projects in multiple international countries, tripled our international pipeline, launched higher margin product offerings, increased our steel efficiency by 20%, and completed our initial public offering.”

“While 2021 was the perfect storm on cost pressures, we’ve taken significant actions, controlling what we can and focusing on advancing cost and margin improvements. The long-term market outlook remains strong, and I believe FTC Solar is uniquely positioned to continue to outpace the market in the U.S. while continuing to see accelerating growth internationally. FTC Solar offers a solution that is differentiated in the marketplace and is increasingly recognized by customers as a preferred choice. And we believe we’re on the cusp of profitability with significant growth and margin improvement ahead. While we made good progress in 2021, I’m even more excited about where we’ll go from here.”

Fourth Quarter 2021 Results
Total fourth quarter revenue was $101.7 million, which was above our target range due to accelerated production and product delivery, pulling forward revenue we had initially anticipated in Q1. This revenue level represents an increase of 92% compared to the prior quarter driven by higher product volume, and an increase of 130% year-over-year on higher volume and ASP.

GAAP gross loss was $8.6 million, or 8.4% of revenue compared to $8.0 million, or 15.2% of revenue in the prior quarter. Non-GAAP gross loss was $7.4 million, or 7.3% of revenue. The strong improvement quarter over quarter was partially offset by a reserve associated with a potential customer credit that resulted in a $3 million reduction to fourth quarter revenue and gross margin. The result for this quarter compares to a gross loss of $4.8 million in the prior year period, with the difference driven primarily by higher logistics cost in 2021 and an increase in employee count and other overhead expenses to support the company’s growth trajectory.

GAAP operating expenses were $15.0 million. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation and certain other expenses, operating expenses were $9.0 million, which compares to $6.2 million in the year-ago quarter. The year-over-year increase was driven primarily by necessary growth in staffing and other public-company requirements.

GAAP net loss was $23.9 million or $0.25 per share, compared to a loss of $22.9 million or $0.24 per share in the prior quarter, and compared to a net loss of $9.7 million or $0.15 per share in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted EBITDA loss, which excludes $3.2 million of stock-based compensation expense, certain consulting and legal fees, severance and other non-cash items, was $16.4 million. This result compares to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $16.1 million in the prior quarter and $10.9 million in the year-ago quarter.

Contracted and awarded orders1 as of March 14 were $606 million with expected delivery dates in 2022 and beyond.

Planned Acquisition
FTC Solar today announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire an emerging tracker supplier, HX Tracker, to accelerate the company’s international expansion.

HX Tracker is an emerging China-based supplier of 1P tracker systems, formed in 2019. Their tracker, launched last year, is designed with a low-steel content and is ideally suited for today’s prevalent large-format modules. The company has important direct tracker market engineering expertise and deep connections in the Chinese market and beyond. HX Tracker has what we believe to be approximately 20 gigawatts of total pipeline2 opportunities.

Key Acquisition Benefits

  • Accelerates FTC Solar’s international expansion, providing a strengthened business platform to accelerate growth in China, the Middle East, Africa and other international markets. Of note, China is projected to be one of the top two largest markets for solar trackers outside the U.S. through 2030, with double-digit growth rates.

  • Provides complementary technology, adding 1P trackers optimized for low-labor cost international markets. This is a strong complement to FTC Solar’s 2P tracker that is designed to be truly differentiated based on its ease of construction and reduced labor hours, which is most advantageous in higher labor cost markets.

  • Strengthen capabilities in several key areas including engineering, logistics, supply chain and sales, and significant benefits in product IP and knowhow.

  • Enhance growth and profit opportunities with company in faster growing markets, expected to outpace market growth and enhance economies of scale with key logistics and steel suppliers.

Transaction Details
Consideration for the acquisition consists of $4.3 million in cash and approximately 1.4 million shares. This represents an attractive multiple of approximately 3x 2023 EBITDA. The sellers will also be eligible for an earn-out of approximately 1.6 million shares based on meeting certain performance metrics. Overall, we estimate the transaction can generate $4 million of EBITDA accretion in 2023, and $7 million in 2024.

The proposed transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2022, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions and confirmatory due diligence. As a result, the proposed transaction may not be consummated on a timely basis, or at all.

Organizational Updates
The company announced today that the company’s Chief Financial Officer, Patrick Cook, will be taking on a new and expanded role as Chief Commercial Officer overseeing sales, sales engineering, legal, and capital markets activities. At the same time, Phelps Morris has been named Chief Financial Officer, succeeding Patrick. Patrick and Phelps will assume their new positions effective as of March 31, 2022.

“Patrick has been an invaluable asset to FTC Solar,” Hunkler continued. “In addition to being our first CFO and building out our finance, accounting and IT infrastructure from the ground up through to becoming a public company, he has been a key driver in nearly every aspect of the company’s growth, including customer penetration. I couldn’t be more pleased that he has agreed to take on an expanded role with the company. I’m also excited to welcome Phelps to the FTC Solar family. He comes to us with a wealth of experience, keen insights and leadership skills that will serve him well in his role with us. I look forward to working with him and the rest of our leadership team in taking FTC Solar to the next level of success.”

Morris has more than 20 years of experience in global finance operations including treasury, capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, risk management and investor relations. He most recently served as Senior Vice President and Treasurer of TrueBlue, a company with $2.2 billion in revenue, responsible for strategy and execution of treasury and finance related functions. He was previously with SunEdison (formerly MEMC Electronic Materials) from 2009-2016, where he served in multiple roles, including leading the treasury and investor relations functions. Earlier in his career, he served in multiple finance roles for The Dow Chemical Company as well as roles with Duff and Phelps Credit Rating Co. and Skudder Kemper Investments. Morris is a Certified Financial Analyst charterholder and holds an MBA from the University of Michigan.

First Quarter and Full Year 2022 Outlook
The company’s guidance for the full-year 2022 remains unchanged from the figures first provided during our January 18, 2022 business update call. The guidance does not include the impact of the proposed acquisition. Additionally, as discussed previously, the company’s 2022 outlook assumes an improvement in regulatory pressures on module availability as well as no significant supply chain disruptions due to COVID-19, and the company continues to closely monitor these impacts. The company is also providing first quarter 2022 guidance as follows. Due to the pull forward in revenue that resulted in higher than targeted revenue in the fourth quarter of 2021, our first quarter guidance differs from the indicative quarterly progression provided on January 18.

Fourth quarter 2021 Earnings Conference Call
FTC Solar’s senior management will host a conference call for members of the investment community at 8:30 a.m. E.T. today, during which the company will discuss its fourth quarter results, its outlook and other business items. This call will be webcast and can be accessed within the Investor Relations section of FTC Solar’s website at investor.ftcsolar.com. A replay of the conference call will also be available on the website for 30 days following the webcast.

1. We define executed contracts and awarded orders as orders that have been documented and signed through a contract, where we are in the process of documenting a contract but for which a contract has not yet been signed, or that are subject to multi-project transactions. In the case of certain projects, including those that are scheduled for delivery on later dates, we have not locked in binding pricing with customers and we instead use estimated average selling price to calculate the revenue included in our executed contracts and awarded orders for such projects. Actual revenue for these projects could differ once contracts with binding pricing are executed.

2. The term ‘pipeline’ refers to the total amount of uncontracted projects in the solar energy market to which the company has visibility as a potential sale opportunity for its trackers. The size of the acquired company’s pipeline does not guarantee future sales results or revenues, which will depend on the ability to convert pipeline opportunities to binding sales orders.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward looking statements. These statements are not historical facts but rather are based on our current expectations and projections regarding our business, operations and other factors relating thereto. Words such as “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “anticipate,” “predict,” “potential,” “continue,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “projects,” “believes,” “estimates” and similar expressions are used to identify these forward-looking statements. These statements are only predictions and as such are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. With respect to the proposed acquisition discussed in this press release, these risks, uncertainties and assumptions include risks related to (1) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the negotiations and of the definitive agreement with respect to the proposed acquisition, (2) the inability to complete the proposed acquisition, including due to failure to satisfy the closing conditions, (3) the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on the parties’ ability to conduct diligence, negotiate and consummate the proposed acquisition, (4) the disruption of our current plans and operations as a result of time and effort necessary to consummate the proposed acquisition, (5) costs related to the proposed acquisition, (6) the inability to successfully merge goals and technology with the proposed acquisition company, if the acquisition is consummated, (7) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the proposed acquisition (including expected orders and revenues for the proposed acquisition company, the expected EBITDA accretion and pipeline opportunities provided by the proposed acquisition company, which are based on our reasonable due diligence of such company and the information and representations that such company has made to us), which may be affected by, among other things, competition, brand recognition, the ability of the combined companies to grow and manage growth profitably and retain their key employees, (8) the failure of the combined companies to effectively scale tracker systems and solutions in certain international markets and (9) changes in applicable laws or regulations that impact the feasibility of the acquisition or the operations of the combined companies. You should not rely on our forward-looking statements as predictions of future events, as actual results may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements because of several factors, including those described in more detail above and in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including the section entitled “Risk Factors” contained therein.

Notes to Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures

We present Non-GAAP gross profit (loss), Non-GAAP operating expense, Non-GAAP operating loss, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Adjusted EPS as supplemental measures of our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss plus (i) income tax (benefit) or expense, (ii) interest expense, (iii) depreciation expense, (iv) amortization of intangibles, (v) amortization of debt issuance costs, (vi) stock-based compensation, (vii) gain on extinguishment of debt, (viii) gain from disposal of our investment in an unconsolidated subsidiary, (ix) non-routine legal fees, (x) severance, (xi) other costs and (xii) loss from unconsolidated subsidiary. We define Adjusted net loss as net loss plus (i) amortization of intangibles, (ii) amortization of debt issuance costs, (iii) stock-based compensation, (iv) gain on extinguishment of debt, (v) gain from disposal in equity investment, (vi) non-routine legal fees, (vii) severance, (viii) other costs, (ix) loss from unconsolidated subsidiary and (x) income tax expense of adjustments. Adjusted EPS is defined as Adjusted Non-GAAP net loss per share using our weighted average basic and diluted shares outstanding.

Non-GAAP gross profit (loss), Non-GAAP operating expense, Non-GAAP operating loss, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Adjusted EPS are intended as supplemental measures of performance that are neither required by, nor presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). We present these non-GAAP measures, many of which are commonly used by investors and analysts, because we believe they assist those investors and analysts in comparing our performance across reporting periods and on an ongoing basis, as well as against other entities, by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Non-GAAP net loss and Adjusted EPS to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies.

Non-GAAP gross profit (loss), Non-GAAP operating expense, Non-GAAP operating loss, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net loss and Adjusted EPS should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and you should not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business. These Non-GAAP financial measures, when presented, are reconciled to the most closely applicable GAAP measure as disclosed below.
