Ameresco Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: AMRC

Ameresco, Inc. (NYSE:AMRC) a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, today announced financial results for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012. The Company has also furnished prepared remarks in conjunction with this press release in a Current Report on Form 8-K. Those prepared remarks contain supplemental information, including non-GAAP financial metrics, and have been posted to the “Investor Relations” section of the Company’s website at www.ameresco.com.

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $163.9 million, compared to $227.8 million for the same period in 2011, a decrease of 28.0% year-over-year. Operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $10.7 million, compared to $16.4 million for the third quarter of 2011, a decrease of 34.7% year-over-year. Third quarter 2012 adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $16.3 million, compared to $20.9 million for the same period in 2011, a decrease of 21.9% year-over-year. Net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $6.8 million, compared to $12.4 million for the same period of 2011, a decrease of 45.2% year-over-year. Third quarter 2012 net income per diluted share was $0.15, compared to $0.27 per diluted share for the same period of 2011.

“Increased uncertainty within our customers’ respective political environments as well as their ongoing budgetary concerns impacted third quarter results,” stated George P. Sakellaris, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ameresco. “Customers have been proceeding more cautiously with greater attention to care and diligence, which has further extended conversion times from awarded projects to signed contracts during the quarter.”

“We continued to execute well on our projects in construction and third quarter revenue from all other offerings increased 20%, helped by annuity-based revenues,” continued Sakellaris. “Further, awarded projects increased 46% year-over-year and gross additions to backlog for the third quarter were $281 million, a new record, more than offsetting a 27% decline in fully-contracted backlog. As a result, total construction backlog of awarded projects and fully-contracted backlog reached a new record level at nearly $1.5 billion.”
