“Ameresco delivered second quarter financial results in line with expectations,” stated George P. Sakellaris, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ameresco. “During the quarter, we continued to execute well on projects in construction, awarded projects increased 40%, total construction backlog reached record levels and revenue from all other offerings increased 56%. However, we are disappointed by the pace of converting awarded projects to signed contracts in a few segments, which is causing us to revise our revenue and net income guidance for 2012. We believe that once normal conversion timing returns in all segments that we will be well positioned for future growth.”
