FuelCell Energy's CEO Discusses Q4 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Stocks in this article: FCEL

Net loss to common shareholders for the fourth quarter decreased to $7.9 million or $0.06 per basic and diluted share compared to $12.9 million or $0.11 per basic and diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2010. This improvement is due to increased revenues and improved product margins.

Turning to the full year, my discussion of results will exclude the charges related to the repair and upgrade program, and the reevaluation of the Series I preferred shares recorded during fiscal 2011. Please note there is a non-GAAP reconciliation included at the end of the earnings release, which illustrates financial results, excluding these items.

For the fiscal year, the company reported total revenue of $122.6 million, up 76% compared to total revenue of $69.8 million in 2010. Product sales and revenues were $115.1 million compared to $59.2 million in the prior year, and R&D contract revenue was $7.5 million compared to $10.6 million in fiscal '10. Margins for product sales and revenues improved by $14.9 million compared to the prior-year period, and the product cost of revenue ratio improved to 1.03:1 on cost reductions including better labor efficiency and improved overhead absorption from higher production rates.

Net loss to common shareholders for the fiscal year was $40.6 million or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, compared to $58.9 million or $0.63 per basic and diluted share for fiscal 2010. Total liquidity was $64.4 million at October 31, 2011, including cash and investments in U.S. Treasuries of $63.4 million and revolver availability of $1 million. Net cash, cash equivalents and investments generated in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $13.9 million. Cash flows from operations totaled $9.5 million, reflecting strong milestone payments from contracts and backlogs. We used $2.2 million of cash on capital expenditures in the quarter and generated $6.6 million through financing activities.
