FuelCell Energy Inc. FCEL is scheduled to release first-quarter fiscal 2021 results on Mar 16. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered a negative earnings surprise of 14.3%.
Let’s see how things have shaped up for this alternate energy company prior to the earnings announcement.
Factors to Note
It lowered debts via proceeds from an equity offering, which in turn is likely to have helped the company reduce capital servicing costs in the fiscal first quarter.
FuelCell Energy continues to progress with the Powerhouse business strategy, which is likely to have a positive impact on fiscal first-quarter results.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the top and bottom lines is pegged at $20.25 million and a loss of 4 cents per share, respectively. The top-line estimate indicates year-over-year growth of 24.51%, while the bottom-line projection suggests a year-over-year decline of 33.33%.
