Cash Flow
Operating cash used in the 2014 second quarter was $78.6 million and was primarily the result of changes in working capital and continued investment to grow the business. 

Free cash flow was ($80.2) million and was largely influenced by solar energy project financing and solar project construction activities, acquisitions, and capital expenditures.  See the reconciliation of free cash flow in the financial statement tables at the end of this press release.

Capital expenditures were $74.9 million in the 2014 second quarter, of which $22.3 million was incurred in the Semiconductor Materials segment and $32.1 million was related to capital investments in SMP Ltd. ("SMP"), a joint venture with Samsung Fine Chemicals which we own and operate.  SMP was consolidated in May 2014, after the transactions related to SSL's IPO. 

During the 2014 second quarter, the company issued $600 million aggregate principal amount 0.25% convertible senior notes due 2020 in a private placement offering.  The company received net proceeds of $534.3 million in the offering, after the net cost of the associated call spread overlay.  Also during the 2014 second quarter, the company completed the initial public offering of 8,280,000 ordinary shares of SSL, our semiconductor materials business.  All of the shares in the offering were sold by SSL, including 1,080,000 ordinary shares sold to the underwriters pursuant to the underwriters' exercise in full of their overallotment option.  The net proceeds of the offering were $98.2 million after associated fees and expenses.  The shares of SSL began trading on May 22, 2014 under the ticker symbol "SEMI" on the NASDAQ Global Select Market.  As of June 30, 2014, SunEdison, Inc. held a 56.8% interest in SSL.

Concurrent with the SSL IPO, Samsung and related entities purchased 9,625,578 ordinary shares of SSL through a private placement at a price of $13.00 per share, resulting in net cash proceeds of $87.3 million after deducting private placement commissions.

On May 28, 2014, the company acquired from Samsung Fine Chemicals an approximate 35% interest in SMP, our polysilicon manufacturing joint venture, for $140.7 million.  Prior to the completion of the SSL IPO, SunEdison contributed this approximate 35% interest in SMP to SSL. As a result, on a consolidated basis, the company owns an approximate 85% interest in SMP, and thus SMP's results are included in the company's consolidated financial statements from May 28, 2014.

Subsequent to the 2014 second quarter close, on July 23, 2014, the company completed the initial public offering of TerraForm Power, Inc. ("TerraForm").  TerraForm issued 23,074,750 Class A shares at a price of $25.00 per share.  All of the shares in the offering were sold by TerraForm, including 3,009,750 Class A shares sold to the underwriters pursuant to the underwriters' exercise in full of their overallotment option.  SunEdison received net proceeds of approximately $159.2 million, after deducting a bridge loan repayment, underwriting discounts, structuring fee commissions and related offering costs.  The shares of TerraForm began trading on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on July 18, 2014 under the ticker symbol "TERP."  As of August 6, 2014, SunEdison, Inc. held a 63.9% interest in TerraForm. 

The company ended the 2014 second quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $954.7 million and cash committed for construction projects of $176.1 million, for a total of $1,130.8 million.  

Earnings per Share
Second quarter 2014 GAAP earnings per share was ($0.16) and non-GAAP earnings per share was $0.12.  Second quarter 2014 GAAP included a benefit of $145.7 million, or $0.54 per share net of tax, related to a gain from a favorable fair value adjustment on our previously held equity method investment in SMP, partially offset by a charge of $47.6 million, or ($0.18) per share net of tax, related to non-cash fair value adjustments for our convertible notes related derivatives primarily resulting from the increase in the company's share price from April 1, 2014 to May 29, 2014. 

Segment Results
Key segment financial results for the 2014 second quarter are set out in the following table.  Financial results include full consolidation of SSL.  See the financial statement tables at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of all GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.

Solar Energy:  GAAP
Solar Energy segment GAAP revenue was higher year-over-year, driven by higher solar project volume and higher sales of solar materials.  Solar Energy segment GAAP revenue for the 2014 second quarter and 2013 second quarter included $16.6 million and $11.7 million, respectively, of previously deferred solar project revenue.  GAAP revenue was higher sequentially, driven by higher solar project sales volume and higher energy sales.  In the 2014 second quarter, Solar Energy recognized GAAP revenue from solar projects totaling 90 MW, up from 78 MW in the 2014 first quarter and 14 MW in the 2013 second quarter.  During the 2014 second quarter, 164 MW of additional projects were constructed and held on the balance sheet. 

Operating loss was higher year-over-year and sequentially due primarily to lower solar energy system gross margin and higher operating expenses related to growth initiatives, costs related to the SSL and TerraForm IPOs, and costs associated with holding rather than selling retained projects. 

Solar Energy:  Non-GAAP
Solar Energy segment non-GAAP revenue was higher year-over-year and lower sequentially.  Year-over-year non-GAAP revenue increased due to higher solar project and solar materials sales.  Sequentially, non-GAAP revenue was lower primarily as a result of lower solar project sales, only partially offset by higher energy sales.  Non-GAAP revenue resulted from 54 MW of solar projects sold in the 2014 second quarter, compared to non-GAAP revenue from 76 MW in the 2014 first quarter and 51 MW in the 2013 second quarter.  Of the 54 MW of non-GAAP revenue in the 2014 second quarter, 49 MW were direct sales and 5 MW were sale-leaseback transactions.

Solar Energy segment non-GAAP operating loss increased year-over-year and sequentially.  Higher operating expenses related to growth initiatives and costs associated with holding rather than selling retained projects contributed to the lower year-over-year results.  Relative to the 2014 first quarter, operating loss increased due to investment in growth initiatives and expenses related to financial transactions during the quarter.

Solar Project Pipeline, Backlog & Construction
The Solar Energy segment ended the 2014 second quarter with a project pipeline of 4.3 GW, up 684 MW compared to the prior quarter and up 1,387 MW from the year ago period.  Backlog at June 30, 2014 was 1.1 GW, up 99 MW from 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. 

As of June 30, 2014, 475 MW of the pipeline was under construction, compared to 463 MW as of March 31, 2014 and 200 MW as of June 30, 2013.  Of the projects under construction, we expect to retain a majority on the balance sheet.  "Under construction" refers to projects within pipeline and backlog, in various stages of completion, which are not yet operational. 

Semiconductor Materials
Semiconductor Materials revenue for the 2014 second quarter was lower year-over-year and higher compared to the prior quarter.  Second quarter 2014 revenue was lower year-over-year due to lower average selling prices resulting from softness in the semiconductor industry, partially offset by a more favorable sales mix.  Revenue was higher sequentially, driven by improved volume and sales mix and higher average selling prices.

Compared to the 2013 second quarter, segment operating profit increased sequentially and year-over-year due to lower polysilicon costs, improved manufacturing efficiencies and lower expenses.  Second quarter 2014 operating profit included a $3.4 million net favorable restructuring reversal.   

Outlook
The company provided the following key metrics for the 2014 third quarter and revised metrics for full-year 2014.  Assuming no significant worldwide economic issues in these periods, the company expects the following:

For the third quarter 2014:

  • Solar energy systems total non-GAAP sales volume in the range of 70 MW to 80 MW
  • Solar energy systems MW retained on the balance sheet between 200 MW and 230 MW
  • Solar energy systems MW completed between 270 MW and 310 MW
  • Fully developed solar energy systems average project pricing between $2.60/watt and $3.00/watt

For the full year 2014:

  • Solar energy systems total non-GAAP sales volume in the range of 290 MW to 320 MW
  • Solar energy systems MW retained on the balance sheet between 710 MW and 830 MW
  • Solar energy systems MW completed between 1,000 MW and 1,150 MW
  • Fully developed solar energy systems average project pricing between $2.50/watt and $3.00/watt

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 as well as related tax impacts.  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, 2014, March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013, the company recorded an adjustment to redeemable noncontrolling interest which affected the numerator of the EPS calculation by $(0.4) million, $(3.2) million and $(2.0) million, respectively. During the six months ended June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013 the adjustment affected the numerator of the EPS calculation by $(3.6) million and $(4.4) million, respectively.

 

[#] Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share for the three months ended June 30, 2014 includes the dilutive impact of outstanding options and restricted stock units, outstanding warrants and the senior convertible notes due 2021 as these instruments are dilutive in the period. The dilutive impact of the senior convertible notes due 2021 includes an adjustment to the numerator of the EPS calculation for the interest expense associated with these notes of $6.2 million. The impact of the senior convertible notes due 2018 and 2020 was antidilutive for the period.

 

[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. It also includes progress of constructing solar energy systems for which we have executed binding sale agreements meeting non-real estate percentage of completion accounting requirements. Non-GAAP operating income reflects a margin in an amount that will equal to the difference between (a) the cash proceeds 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.

 

[E] Adjustment includes a non-cash net loss on derivative instruments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 of $47.6 million ($208.4 million, net of tax expense) and $499.4 million ($499.4 million, net of tax), respectively, reported as a non-operating expense in accordance with GAAP, as a result of the net change in the estimated fair values of the embedded conversion option, note hedge and warrant derivative instruments entered into in connection with the senior convertible notes offering completed in December 2013. There were no such adjustments for any prior periods. Management believes it is useful to exclude this net loss from our GAAP net loss and EPS as it is more representative of the results of the continuing operations in the respective reporting period. Excluding this net loss provides investors with a basis to compare the company's performance against the performance of other companies without a net non-cash loss on such derivative instruments. This non-GAAP measure 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.

[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] 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 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).
