Semiconductor Materials
Semiconductor Materials revenue was up year-over-year and sequentially as increased volume across all diameters offset price declines and an unfavorable mix.  Year-over-year and sequential pricing declined across most diameters but the decline was greatest among 300mm products.  Continued weakness in the Japanese Yen remains a significant challenge in the competitive pricing environment. 

The year-over-year and sequential increase in operating income was due primarily to higher gross margin and profits driven by increased shipments, improved operational efficiencies and various cost reduction initiatives.

Solar Energy:  GAAP
Solar Energy segment GAAP revenue was down year-over-year.  In the 2012 second quarter, 89 MW of projects were sold which were originally expected to term out in December 2011 but were delayed due to adverse market conditions in Europe.  The year-over-year decrease also reflected a less favorable project mix in the current year period and the effect of the company's decision to slow development spending in 2012.   During the 2013 second quarter, all of the projects recognized for GAAP revenue were EPC-only projects, for which pricing per watt is generally lower than fully developed solar system projects per watt because the company is not involved in every phase of the solar project design, financing and development.  Second quarter 2013 GAAP revenue was sequentially lower due primarily to lower solar project sales which were only partially offset by higher solar materials sales.  First quarter 2013 included revenue of $25.0 million from the amendment of a supply contract with Tainergy.  Second quarter 2013 and first quarter 2013 GAAP revenue included $11.7 million and $8.2 million, respectively, of previously deferred revenue related to the sale of projects in prior quarters for which the same amounts were recognized in non-GAAP revenue in the corresponding prior periods.  In the 2013 second quarter, Solar Energy recognized GAAP revenue from solar projects totaling 14 MW, compared to 47 MW in the 2013 first quarter and 144 MW in the 2012 second quarter. 

The decrease in year-over-year and sequential GAAP operating income resulted primarily from lower volume and pricing for solar projects and materials.  Additionally, first quarter 2013 included operating income of $25.0 million from the previously mentioned contract amendment with Tainergy.

Solar Energy:  Non-GAAP
Solar Energy segment non-GAAP revenue was down year-over-year.  In the 2012 second quarter, 98 MW of projects were sold which were originally expected to term out in December 2011 but were delayed due to adverse market conditions in Europe.  The year-over-year decrease also reflected the effect of the company's decision to slow development spending in 2012.  Non-GAAP revenue was higher sequentially due to higher solar project volume and prices, and higher sales of solar materials products.  First quarter 2013 included revenue of $25.0 million from the amendment of a supply contract with Tainergy.  Non-GAAP revenue was recognized from 51 MW of solar project sales in the 2013 second quarter, compared to 45 MW in the 2013 first quarter and 169 MW in the 2012 second quarter.  Of the 51 MW that were recognized for non-GAAP revenue in the 2013 second quarter, 44 MW were direct sales and 7 MW were sale-leaseback transactions. 

The year-over-year decrease in non-GAAP operating income was influenced primarily by lower solar project volume and pricing.  The sequential decline in operating income was driven primarily by losses generated from solar wafer sales.  First quarter 2013 included operating income of $25 million due to the amendment of a contract with Tainergy.

Solar Project Pipeline, Backlog & Construction
Solar Energy ended the 2013 second quarter with a project pipeline of 2.9 GW, up 218 MW compared to the prior quarter and unchanged from the year ago period.  Backlog at June 30, 2013 was 1.0 GW, an increase of 119 MW compared to the prior quarter.  A solar project is classified as "pipeline" where SunEdison has a signed or awarded PPA or other energy off-take agreement or has achieved each of the following three items: site control, an identified interconnection point with an estimate of the interconnection costs, and an executed energy off-take agreement or the determination that there is a reasonable likelihood that an energy off-take agreement will be signed.  A solar project is classified as "backlog" if there is an associated executed PPA or other energy off-take agreement, such as a feed-in-tariff.  There can be no assurance that all pipeline or backlog projects will convert to revenue because in the ordinary course of our development business some fall-out is typical and certain projects will not be built. 

Solar projects interconnected during the 2013 second quarter totaled 22 MW from 17 projects and consisted of 16 MW of direct sale projects and 6 MW of sale-leaseback projects.  As of June 30, 2013, 200 MW of the pipeline was under construction.  "Under construction" refers to projects within pipeline and backlog, in various stages of completion, which are not yet operational.

Outlook
The company provided the following key metrics for the 2013 third quarter and revised metrics for full-year 2013.  Assuming no significant worldwide economic issues or other significant shocks in these periods, the company expects the following:

For the third quarter 2013:

  • Semiconductor Materials revenue between $230 million and $250 million
  • Solar energy systems total non-GAAP sales volume in the range of 60 MW to 100 MW
  • Solar energy systems MW retained on the balance sheet between 0 MW and 10 MW
  • Fully developed solar energy systems average project pricing between $3.25/watt and $3.50/watt
  • Capital spending between $30 million and $40 million

For the full year 2013:

  • Semiconductor Materials revenue between $940 million and $980 million
  • Solar energy systems total non-GAAP sales volume in the range of 430 MW to 500 MW
  • Solar energy systems MW retained on the balance sheet between 50 MW and 100 MW
  • Total solar energy systems average project pricing between $3.10/watt and $3.40/watt
  • Capital spending between $120 million and $140 million

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
Management has determined that certain non-GAAP metrics for the Solar Energy segment presented herein are the key metrics that will help investors understand the ultimate income and near-term cash flows generated by our Solar Energy segment.  These non-GAAP measures and metrics include deferrals required under GAAP real estate and lease accounting for some of SunEdison's direct sales and or its sale-leaseback transactions.  Management has also determined that the non-GAAP measure of "free cash flow" is useful to help investors better understand the capital intensity of our business, including our project financing operations. For a complete description of our non-GAAP measures, see the non-GAAP reconciliation tables below.

[*] During the three months ended June 30, 2013 and March 31, 2013, the company recorded an adjustment to redeemable noncontrolling interest which affected the numerator of the EPS calculation by $(2.0) million and $(2.4) million, respectively.  During the six months ended June 30, 2013, the adjustment affected the numerator of the EPS calculation by $(4.4) million.



[A] Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) is the term used to refer to the standard framework of guidelines for financial accounting and reporting.  In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, we have provided non-GAAP financial measures for the Solar Energy segment. The company believes that these non-GAAP measures represent important internal measures of performance for our Solar Energy business, and better reflect Solar Energy's results from operations and near term cash flows.  Accordingly, where these measures are provided, it is done so that investors have the same financial data that management uses to evaluate the operational and financial performance of the Solar Energy segment. SunEdison management uses these measures to manage the Solar Energy segment because it believes these measures are more representative of the operational health and performance of that segment. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as a substitute for, and should only be read in conjunction with, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliation of each non-GAAP measure to the directly comparable GAAP measure set forth in the press release.


[B] These non-GAAP measures include adjustments to revenue in the company's Solar Energy business from direct sales of solar energy systems where we have received upfront partial payments and, absent real estate accounting requirements, we would have recognized revenues under the percentage of completion accounting method.  The non-GAAP measures also include adjustments to non-GAAP revenue and/or profit deferred related to our maximum exposure for power warranties, system uptime guarantees and breach of contract provisions offered to the direct sale customers for these systems that are considered continuing involvement by us in the sold solar energy systems.  This revenue is not recognized as of the reporting date under GAAP real estate accounting rules because the solar energy systems are considered integral to the real estate on which they were built.  Absent real estate accounting requirements, deferred revenues related to continuing involvement would be recognized under GAAP during the reporting period because we have historically experienced minimal losses related to these guarantees.  For these direct sales, the sales contracts have been executed and we have either received payment in full or maintains a valid and legal note receivable for the full sales price that we expect to collect within a short period after completion of the project.   


[C] Adjustment relates to revenue from our sale-leaseback transactions accounted for as financings. This includes cash received for the legal sale of the solar energy system to the purchaser that will not be recognized as revenue under GAAP.  Non-GAAP operating income includes the upfront cash margin in an amount equal to the difference between (a) the cash received as of the reporting date from our financing partners in sale-leaseback transactions considered financings and (b) our total costs to construct the solar energy systems sold under the sale-leaseback transactions.  These sale-leaseback transactions are classified as financing transactions under GAAP because the system is considered integral to the land or building on which it resides and because we have continuing involvement with the system through a purchase option.  This system development margin will be recognized under GAAP upon termination of the related lease through the non-cash extinguishment of the debt offset by any remaining net book value of the solar energy system asset.


[D] Income tax has been calculated using the estimated effective tax rate for SunEdison in the jurisdictions giving rise to the related adjustments and assumes sale-leaseback deferred tax assets will be realized.

[A] EBITDA is a non-GAAP disclosure consisting of net loss attributable to SunEdison stockholders plus interest expense, net, depreciation and amortization and income taxes.  The Company believes that EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating the company's operating performance and liquidity because (i) it is widely used to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items such as depreciation and amortization, which can vary depending upon accounting methods and the book value of assets, (ii) it presents a meaningful measure of corporate performance exclusive of the company's capital structure and the method by which the assets were acquired, and (iii) it is a widely accepted financial indicator of a company's ability to service its debt, as the company is required to comply with certain covenants and limitations that are based on variations of EBITDA in the company's financing documents.

[A] GAAP is the term used to refer to the standard framework of guidelines for financial accounting and reporting. In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, we have provided a non-GAAP financial measure for free cash flow which we believe is useful to help investors better understand the capital intensity of our business, including our project financing operations. In addition to other key performance indicators, we evaluate the performance of the solar project business on the cash generation abilities of the projects, which are typically financed at the inception of a lease, resulting in a gain on sale that is deferred and not immediately included in net income (loss). Any non-GAAP measure should be considered in context with the GAAP financial presentation and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP net income (loss).
