Lime Energy Co.

The focus on technology and operations is beginning to yield measurable and tangible results. We believe that these trends will continue thru the remainder of 2013, positioning the company for a stable operating environment in 2014,” stated John O’Rourke, Lime’s Chief Executive Officer.

  • The loss from continuing operations increased $536 thousand, or 15.8%, including the one-time charges related to the restatement and ongoing lawsuits. Adjusting for the $1.3 million of one-time charges, the loss declined $742 thousand or 21.9%, to $2.7 million.*
  • The loss from discontinued operations increased $2.0 million to $2.8 million;
  • The net loss increased $2.5 million to 6.7 million;
  • The basic and diluted loss per common share from continuing operations increased $0.02 per share to a loss of $0.16 per share. The $1.3 million of one-time expenses contributed $0.05 to the first quarter loss;
  • The basic and diluted loss per common share from discontinued operations increased $0.08 per share to $0.11 per share; and
  • The adjusted EBITDA loss, excluding the loss from discontinued operations, increased $837 thousand or 35.8%, to $3.2 million including the one-time charges.
