Orion Energy Systems, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter And Full-Year Results

Stocks in this article: OESX

Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: OESX), a leading power technology enterprise, announced today financial results for its re-stated full fiscal-year ended March 31, 2011, full fiscal-year ended March 31, 2012 and its fiscal 2012 fourth quarter.

Neal Verfuerth, Chief Executive Officer of Orion commented, “We are pleased to report a record level of revenue and backlog for fiscal 2012. Crossing $100 million in revenue is a significant inflection point for the Company. Assuming that the overall economy continues to rebound and that electricity prices remain the same or rise, we are well positioned to scale our revenues with our core organization and infrastructure that we’ve invested in over the last 5 years. As a result of these strategic investments, we expect that annual revenue of $250 million can be achieved by 2017.”

Restated Fiscal Year 2011

As previously disclosed, the Company has restated its previously issued consolidated financial statements for fiscal year 2011 to account for revenue from its sales of solar photovoltaic, or PV, systems using the percentage-of-completion method rather than based upon multiple deliverable elements.

Under the Company’s prior method of accounting for sales of PV systems, revenue was recognized in two stages (i) when the title to the products had been transferred and (ii) when the service installation was complete. On February 1, 2012, the Company concluded that generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, required that revenue from sales of solar PV systems be recognized under the percentage-of-completion method. The percentage-of-completion method, however, recognizes revenue over the life of the project. The percentage-of-completion method requires revenue from the delivery of products to be deferred and the cost of such products to be capitalized as a deferred cost and current asset on the balance sheet. The percentage-of-completion method requires periodic evaluations of the progress of the installation of the solar photovoltaic systems using actual costs incurred over total estimated costs to complete a project and requires immediate recognition of any losses that are identified on such contracts. Incurred costs include all direct materials, costs for solar modules, labor, subcontractor costs, and those indirect costs related to contract performance, such as indirect labor, supplies, and tools. The difference between the percentage-of-completion method and the multiple deliverable elements method is a question of timing of revenue recognition.
