A-Power Reports Third Quarter 2010 Financial Results

Dec 01, 2010, 06:05 ET from A-Power Energy Generation Systems, Ltd.

SHENYANG, China, Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- A-Power Energy Generation Systems, Ltd. (Nasdaq: APWR) ("A-Power" or "the Company"), a leading provider of distributed power generation systems in China and a fast-growing manufacturer of wind turbines, today announced unaudited interim consolidated financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Third quarter 2010 financial highlights

  • Revenues decreased 40.7% to $57.3 million from $96.6 million in the third quarter 2009.
  • Gross profit decreased 2.5% to $12.3 million in the third quarter from $12.6 million in the third quarter 2009.
  • Gross profit margin was 21.5% in the third quarter compared to 13.1% in the third quarter 2009.
  • Income from operations decreased 63.2% to $3.4 million in the third quarter from $9.4 million in the third quarter 2009.
  • Net loss attributable to A-Power was $(1.0) million in the third quarter compared with a net loss of $(0.6) million in the third quarter 2009.
  • Net loss per diluted common share was $(0.02) in both the third quarter 2010 and third quarter 2009 on 34.0% higher weighted average common shares outstanding in the third quarter 2010 than in the prior third quarter.
  • Guidance for the year 2010 has been revised downward to revenues of $310 million and net income of $50 million due to lower-than-expected wind turbine sales.

Mr. Jinxiang Lu, A-Power's Chairman and CEO said, "A-Power's results in the third quarter were less than we hoped we would achieve. The shortfall was due mainly to lower revenues in our Distributed power generation segment because of the timing of work under contracts, and to less-than-planned sales in our Wind power segment. Although Wind power achieved revenues of $15.5 million in the third quarter, we had assumed we would be able to book revenues from a major customer, Spinning Star LLC. However to date, Spinning Star has been unable to secure the expected construction financing for its wind farm project in Texas.

"We believe our strategy to benefit from alternative power generation, in the forms of distributed power, wind power, and photovoltaic solar power, continues to be valid for the Company's long-term success and is in the best interests of our shareholders. Our design, engineering, suppliers, and operations are all in very good shape and remain competitive in the marketplace.

"Recently, we have won a major new contract in our Distributed power business for the engineering, procurement, and construction of four hydropower plants over a period of six years, to be located in the Jilin province of China. The project is expected to generate RMB 1.87 billion (about $279 million) over project's anticipated six year life.

"We are very aware of our responsibility to shareholders and are doing everything possible to simultaneously expand our businesses and protect our assets in the most prudent of ways.

"We hope to see greater predictability in financing for our customers in 2011 and the years ahead."

Third quarter 2010 financial results

Revenues in the 2010 third quarter decreased 40.7% or $39.3 million to $57.3 million in the third quarter 2010 from $96.6 million in the third quarter 2009. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease of $65.2 million in the Distributed power segment, partly offset by an increase of $15.5 million in the Wind power segment in the third quarter 2010 (the Wind power segment had no revenues in the third quarter 2009), an increase of $9.6 million in the Other construction segment, and revenue of $0.9 million in the newly established Solar power segment. The lower revenues in Distributed power segment were mainly due to fewer projects constructed in the third quarter of 2010 than the third quarter of 2009. Please see our financial statement of segment information below for more results by segment.

Gross profit in the third quarter decreased $0.3 million or 2.5% to $12.3 million in the third quarter 2010 from $12.6 million in the third quarter 2009. The gross profit margin, defined as gross profit divided by revenues, was 21.5% in the third quarter, up from 13.1% in the third quarter of 2009. The improvement in gross margin was due mainly to an increase in revenue in the Wind power segment in the third quarter 2010, which had a gross margin during the quarter of 32.4%, compared with no revenue in the Wind power segment in the third quarter of 2009.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses in the third quarter increased $5.6 million or 172.2% to $8.9 million compared with $3.3 million in the third quarter 2009. The increase was mainly due the acquisitions of Evatech Co. Ltd. ("Evatech") and Hallys Corporation ("Hallys") in 2010 that added $3.9 million in selling, general, and administrative expenses in the third quarter 2010 ($2.7 million in excess of revenues from these subsidiaries), and due to higher costs in the Distributed power and Wind power segments to further develop the businesses, and higher costs in the Wind power segment associated with the higher sales achieved. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general, and administrative expenses were 15.5% in the third quarter 2010 compared with 3.4% in the third quarter 2009.

Operating income was $3.4 million or 5.9% of revenues in the third quarter of 2010 compared with $9.4 million or 9.7% of revenues in the third quarter 2009. The decreases were primarily due to higher selling, general, and administrative expenses associated with the Evatech and Hallys operations acquired in 2010, which, as noted above, were higher than revenues realized by them.

Net loss attributable to A-Power Energy Generation Systems, Ltd., increased $(0.4) million or 66.7% to $(1.0) million, or $(0.02) per diluted common share, in the third quarter 2010 from $(0.6) million, or $(0.02) per common diluted share, in the third quarter 2009.

Non-GAAP net income, declined $7.5 million or 76.1% to $2.4 million in the third quarter 2010 from $9.9 million in the third quarter 2009.

Weighted average common shares outstanding on a diluted basis in the third quarter 2010 were 46.3 million shares, an increase of 34.0%, compared with 34.6 million shares in the third quarter 2009.

Please refer to the tables below for a financial review of our third quarter 2010 results and the reconciliation of our non-GAAP measure to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Recent developments and updates

Hydropower engineering, procurement, and construction contract

In September, the Company signed a three-phase, six-year RMB 1.87 billion (approximately $279 million) engineering, procurement, and construction contract with Baishan Long Run Water Conservancy in Baishan city, Jilin province of China. A-Power will be responsible for all the planning, engineering, and construction within the hydropower stations, the building and repairing of access roads to the facilities, and the construction of the power stations' auxiliary projects, including office buildings, staff apartments, and hotels. Phase one requires completion of a 12.8 megawatt water control project. Phase two includes the design and construction of a 64 megawatt hydropower facility over the Hun river. The third phase includes the design and construction of two 16 megawatt hydropower facilities over the Baijianghe river. The Company expects to recognize revenues from this contract using the percentage of competition method of accounting over the anticipated six years of the project's life.

Reduction of interest in Shenyang Power Group

In October 2010, the Company sold a portion of its shares of Shenyang Power Group ("SPG"), representing 42.5% of SPG's share capital, to three unaffiliated purchasers, Liaoning Northern Electrical Energy Construction Limited, Liaoning Northern Electrical Pipeline Construction Limited, and Liaoning Hi-tech Furnace Construction Insulation Antisepsis Construction Limited.  The sale reduced the Company's ownership of SPG's share capital from 62% to 19.5%. The consideration for the sale consisted of the purchasers' assumption of a total of RMB 425 million (approximately $62.5 million) of the Company's indebtedness to SPG representing advances to the Company by Shenyang Power Group. The Company did not receive any cash in the transaction.

The Company will furnish to the Securities and Exchange Commission, under cover of a Form 6-K, unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial statements for the Company, giving effect to the sale of 42.5% of the share capital of SPG and reduction of the Company's interest in SPG to 19.5%.

The Company reduced its interest in SPG so as to surrender effective control of SPG with a view to facilitating recognition of revenues attributable to projects in which SPG invests. The sale has been completed and the Company is currently taking care of the daily management of the operation. The Company will account for its remaining investment in SPG using the equity method of accounting. Additional information regarding the reduction in interest will be included in the pro forma financial statements to be furnished by the Company.

Gearbox joint venture with General Electric

The Company is conducting negotiations with GE (China) Co. Ltd ("GE China") to acquire GE China's interest in GE Drivetrain Technologies (Shenyang) Co., Ltd., a joint venture between an affiliate of the Company and GE China formed in March 2009 to manufacture and distribute wind turbine gearboxes in China, and to terminate the related gearbox supply agreement between an affiliate of the Company and GE Transportation, a unit of the General Electric Company.

The transactions with GE China and GE Transportation are subject to agreement on mutually beneficial terms and execution of definitive documents, and there can be no assurance that the transactions will be implemented. The Company will issue an update about its discussions with GE China at an appropriate time.

Wind power -- China

As noted above, the Company recognized revenues from the sale of four wind turbines to a third-party purchaser in China during the third quarter 2010.

Wind power -- United States – Spinning Star

To date, the Company has not received a binding purchase order for turbines from Spinning Star Energy LLC ("Spinning Star"), the joint venture enterprise owned by United States Renewable Energy Group Wind Partners I, LLC ("USREG Wind") and SPG developing the proposed 615 megawatt Texas wind farm project (the "Project"). Spinning Star has not been able to secure the debt or equity financing that would allow it to make requisite payments to us under such a purchase order. In addition, we have not reached agreement with Spinning Star as to price and other commercial terms for the sale of turbines (assuming Spinning Star otherwise had funds available to pay for turbines).

Spinning Star has applied for a loan from the U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE"), which has approved Part I of such application.  Funding for the Project from the DOE (which would be considered after submission of Part II of the application) is not a certainty. The application process requires information that is not presently available and involves a number of steps which may not be timely achieved and securing funding is competitive in nature and at DOE's discretion.  

If Spinning Star is unable to obtain funding from the DOE or from other public or private financing sources for the Project, Spinning Star will not be able to acquire our wind turbines, proceed with construction and commercial operation of the Project, or obtain the benefits of U.S. Treasury Department tax credits or tax credit cash grants that may be available for constructed U.S. renewable energy generation projects.

Under Spinning Star's organizational documents, if construction financing for the Project has not been arranged by December 31, 2010, each member of Spinning Star has the right to require the dissolution and liquidation of Spinning Star. In our view, it is not likely that Spinning Star will be able to arrange the requisite construction financing by December 31, 2010, in which event each of USREG Wind and SPG would then accordingly have the right to elect to dissolve Spinning Star, although neither party has expressed to us an intention to do so.

Wind power – other U.S. opportunities

We are in discussions with several different wind energy project developers in the United States who have expressed interest in acquiring turbines from us and jointly investing in wind project developments with us. As of the date hereof, we do not however, have any binding letters of intent or firm orders from any purchasers of turbines in the United States.

Other developments

In July, we entered into a strategic partnership with Baoding Huide Wind Power Engineering Co. Ltd., that will seek to align A-Power's brands, marketing initiatives, and developing presence in the U.S. with the production and technology of Baoding Huide's assets. Baoding Huide is a renewable energy company primarily focused on the development, manufacture, and sales of 2.0 megawatt wind turbines and various design parts of wind power equipment in China.

In July, we renewed our license agreement with German wind technology company, Fuhrlander AG, for the right to manufacture, sell, operate, and service 2.7 megawatt wind turbines using Fuhrlander's F2500 technology throughout China.

Effective September 30, 2010, Mr. Morris Li, Ph.D., was named to the position of Vice President of Solar Research and Development. Dr. Li will contribute to the Company's proprietary photovoltaic cell production business and has more than 13 years of semiconductor industry experience.

Business outlook and guidance

In light of the general softness in the wind energy business and, in particular, the lack of turbines purchases from Spinning Star and the consequent impact of these factors on the near-term demand for A-Power's wind turbines, the Company has reduced its guidance for the full year 2010. It now expects revenues of $310 million (reduced from $500 million) and net income of $50 million (reduced from $60 million).
