AMSC Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2016 Financial Results And Provides Business Outlook

DEVENS, Mass., Nov. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMSC (NASDAQ:AMSC), a global solutions provider serving wind and power grid industry leaders, today reported financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2016 ended September 30, 2016. 

Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were $18.5 million, compared with $19.0 million for the same period of fiscal 2015. The year-over-year decrease in revenues was due to modestly lower Wind segment revenues during the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

The Company's non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $8.2 million, or $0.60 per share, which was improved compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $8.7 million, or $0.64 per share, in the same period of fiscal 2015. Please refer to the financial table below for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results.

Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash at September 30, 2016 totaled $26.6 million, compared with $36.6 million at June 30, 2016.

"Revenues in our Wind segment returned to a more normal run-rate in the second quarter, while our Grid revenues continued to achieve year-over-year growth," said Daniel P. McGahn, President and CEO, AMSC. "While the first half of the fiscal year was challenging, we expect a stronger second half of the fiscal year, with growing revenues and minimal cash burn."
