Ocean Power Technologies Announces First Quarter FY2021 Results

Ocean Power Technologies, Inc.

Investor Conference Call and Webcast on September 15, 2020, at 11:00 A.M. ET

MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J., Sept. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. (“OPT” or “the Company”) (Nasdaq: OPTT), a leader in innovative and cost-effective ocean energy solutions, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 ended July 31, 2020.

Recent Operational Highlights

  • OPT announced two complementary new products: the hybrid PowerBuoy® with solar panels and an efficient Stirling engine to power payloads independent of wave activity; and the Subsea Battery that is compatible with PowerBuoy® products or deployable as a standalone power source.

  • The Company unveiled a Surface Surveillance Solution integrating high-definition radar and cameras with state-of-the-art security sensors and software to enable agencies and organizations seeking to secure marine assets and territorial waters.

  • OPT expanded its sales team with an Indonesia-based Southeast Asia representative to execute the Company’s customer expansion strategy in the region.

  • The Company opened a Houston office strategically located adjacent to the city’s Energy Corridor as a base for regional sales and business development activities in support of Gulf of Mexico and broader U.S. and South America opportunities.

  • OPT’s PB3 PowerBuoy® on lease to Eni and deployed in the Adriatic Sea reached a milestone surpassing more than 600 days of continuous operation.

Management Commentary
“We are fielding strong demand for proposals of OPT solutions from diverse markets,” said George H. Kirby, President and Chief Executive Officer of OPT. “With new products and solutions, and an expanding sales and business development presence, we believe that we are well-positioned to deliver on our commitment to grow our revenue.”

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Review
Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 was $0.2 million, which was essentially flat compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2020. Revenue for the three months ended July 31, 2020, was primarily derived from the Enel Green Power project, while revenue for the same period in the prior year was mainly from projects with Premier Oil and the U.S. Navy. The net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 increased by $0.4 million as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020, which was mainly attributable to product development and administrative costs.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow
Total cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash was $12.0 million as of July 31, 2020. Net cash used in operating activities decreased by $0.9 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 to $2.7 million, as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020. On May 5, 2020, the Company received $0.9 million from the Paycheck Protection Program made available by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, commonly referred to as the CARES Act.
