WILLISTON, Vt., May 16, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--iSun, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISUN) (the "Company", or "iSun"), a leading solar energy and clean mobility infrastructure company with 50-years of experience accelerating the adoption of innovative electrical technologies, today announced results for the first quarter of 2022.
Revenue of $15.1 million in the first quarter, up 107.8% over the first quarter in 2021
Gross profit of $3.2 million in the first quarter compared to $0.1 million for the same period in 2021.
Gross margins of 21.0% in the first quarter, marks third consecutive quarter of margin improvement
Approaching break-even EBITDA despite seasonal impact to installations
Backlog grew to $128.3 million adding approximately $41.2 million in new customer demand and contracts during the quarter
"We continue to see exceptional growth with the doubling of our revenue in Q1 over the prior year," said Jeffrey Peck, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of iSun. We expect to see this growth continue into Q2 as we transition out of the seasonality of the Northeast. Our customer demand continues to accelerate evident by the growth in our overall backlog totaling $128.3 million with new demand of $41.2 million generated in the quarter. iSun is well positioned in this rapidly evolving energy market to accelerate the adoption of solar and meet the demand as it occurs in each segment."
First Quarter Results
iSun reported first quarter 2022 revenue of $15.1 million representing a $7.8 million or 107.8% increase over the same period in 2021. Revenue growth was driven by the continued fulfillment of residential consumer demand and execution of our commercial and industrial backlog. While we continued to execute against our existing backlog, we also generated new demand and added $41.2 million in new business during Q1.
Gross profit in the first quarter was $3.2 million compared to $0.1 million during the 1st quarter 2021. Consolidated gross margin for the quarter was 21.0%, compared to 1.6% over the same period 2021. The margin improvement represents the third consecutive quarter in which our margin has improved. As we grow synergies and efficiencies among our segments, the strengthening of our margin is expected to continue.
Consolidated operating income was a loss of $5.7 million compared to a loss of $2.6 million over the same period 2021. We acquired several intangible and fixed assets in 2021 that began to amortize in 2022. Our non-cash depreciation and amortization expense of $1.8 million compared to $0.1 million in Q1 2021 is included in our overall operating expenses.
iSun reported a $2.9 million net loss, or ($0.23) per share in the first quarter of 2022, compared to a $3.1 million loss, or ($0.41) per share over the same period 2021.
EBITDA for the quarter was approaching break-even, with a loss of ($0.12) million compared to a loss of ($1.4) million the year prior. We are encouraged by these results, particularly with the variability of the seasonal impact to our installation schedules during Q1.
Our residential division generated revenue of approximately $6.7 million during Q1 and grew customer demand to $26.2 million with execution anticipated over three to five months.
Our commercial and industrial division generated revenue of approximately $6.9 million during Q1 and grew contracted backlog to $102.1 million with execution anticipated over twelve to eighteen months.
Our utility division generated revenue of approximately $1.5 million during Q1 and has 550MW of utility scale projects and 120MW of commercial and industrial scale projects under development. As these projects transition to the installation phase, they will be added to the respective backlogs.
The multi-segment strategy positioned us to meet the evolving demand as well as diversifying our revenue stream which insulates us from challenges created by economic and political uncertainty impacting the global energy market. We are insulated but not immune from industry dynamics and based on the current environment, we are adjusting our 2022 revenue guidance to $125 million. We will continue to monitor these developments closely and evaluate the impacts they will have on each of our divisions and our forecast. We remain committed to our mission and returning the Company to profitability and cash flow positive in 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Included in this presentation are discussions and reconciliations of earnings before interest, income tax and depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and EBITDA adjusted for certain non-cash, non-recurring or non-core expenses ("Adjusted EBITDA") to net loss in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain non-cash and other expenses, certain legal services costs, professional and consulting fees and expenses, and one-time Reverse Merger and Recapitalization expenses and certain adjustments. We believe that these non-GAAP measures illustrate the underlying financial and business trends relating to our results of operations and comparability between current and prior periods. We also use these non-GAAP measures to establish and monitor operational goals.
These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute or superior to, the other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Using only the non-GAAP financial measures, particularly Adjusted EBITDA, to analyze our performance would have material limitations because such calculations are based on a subjective determination regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find significant. We compensate for these limitations by presenting both the GAAP and non-GAAP measures of our operating results. Although other companies may report measures entitled "Adjusted EBITDA" or similar in nature, numerous methods may exist for calculating a company’s Adjusted EBITDA or similar measures. As a result, the methods that we use to calculate Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the methods used by other companies to calculate their non-GAAP measures.
The reconciliations of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, are shown in the table below:
