Ocean Power Technologies Announces Results For The Fiscal Third Quarter Ended January 31, 2012

Results for the Nine Months Ended January 31, 2012

For the nine months ended January 31, 2012, OPT reported revenues of $4.3 million as compared to revenues of $4.8 million for the nine months ended January 31, 2011. This decrease primarily reflects lower revenues associated with the US Navy’s Deep Water Active Detection System project, and declines in revenue tied to the Company’s LEAP program as well as the PB150 being prepared for deployment off Reedsport, Oregon. The year-to-date revenue decline was partially offset by work on the Company’s WavePort project in Spain and by the funded development of the PB500 PowerBuoy.

The operating loss for the nine months ended January 31, 2012 was $12.4 million as compared to an operating loss of $15.8 million for the nine months ended January 31, 2011. The reduction in operating loss year-over-year was due primarily to a decrease in product development costs, principally for the PB150 system off the coast of Scotland and the Company’s Hawaii project with the US Navy, as these projects neared completion during fiscal year 2012. Gross profit for the nine months ended January 31, 2011 was negatively impacted by a reduction in revenues of $240,000 due to a change in the Company’s estimated revenue recognized in connection with its project off the coast of Spain.

The net loss was $11.1 million for the nine months ended January 31, 2012 compared to $15.1 million for the same period in the prior year. This decrease in net loss was due primarily to the decline in operating loss and lower foreign exchange losses, as well as a higher recorded income tax benefit, partially offset by a decrease in interest income.

Cash and Investments

On January 31, 2012, total cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and investments were $37.8 million. Net cash used in operating activities was $9.7 million for the nine months ended January 31, 2012, compared to $14.0 million for the same period last year. OPT received approximately $1.1 million and $0.4 million in connection with the sale of New Jersey net operating tax losses during the nine months ended January 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. As previously stated, OPT expects its cash outflows to decrease in fiscal 2012, as compared to the prior fiscal year, reflecting the completion of ocean trials of the PB150 off the coast of Scotland.
