EnerNOC Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results

BOSTON, March 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of demand response solutions and energy intelligence software (EIS), today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

"In 2016, the position of demand response as a critical resource was affirmed by the Supreme Court of the United States, international demand response opportunities continued to develop particularly in Asia, and we extended our global market leadership position. On the software side of the business, although we had a number of strategic sales wins and more recently have seen indicators of accelerated market adoption, the near-term opportunity has materialized much more slowly than we expected," said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC.

"As a result, we have taken significant steps to align the level of investment in our software business with the near-term market opportunity. We continue to be focused on making proactive decisions that maximize long-term shareholder value and position each of our businesses for success. To that end, we have concluded that it is in the interest of our customers, employees, and shareholders to explore potential alternatives to our current structure. This may include the sale or separation of one or more of our business units, a sale of the company, or other alternatives," continued Healy.

EnerNOC, Inc.
Statement on Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company discloses certain non-GAAP measures, including consolidated adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

The GAAP measure most comparable to consolidated adjusted EBITDA is GAAP net income (loss) attributable to EnerNOC, Inc. and the GAAP measure most comparable to free cash flow is cash flow provided by (used in) operating activities. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP measures are included below.

Use and Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating the Company's operating performance and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Management believes that such measures help indicate underlying trends in the business, are important in comparing current results with prior period results, and are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing the Company's operating performance. For example, management considers consolidated adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance of the business and a good measure of the Company's historical operating trend. In addition, management considers free cash flow to be an indicator of the Company's liquidity trend and performance of the business.

The following is an explanation of the non-GAAP measures that management utilizes, including the adjustments that management makes as part of the non-GAAP measures:

•   Management defines consolidated adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to EnerNOC, Inc., excluding depreciation, amortization and asset impairments; stock-based compensation; gains on the sale of businesses; direct and incremental expenses or gains associated with acquisitions, divestitures, reorganizations and escrow settlements; impairment of goodwill and intangible assets; restructuring charges; gains on extinguishment of debt, interest and other income (expense), net; and benefit from (provision for) income tax. 

•   Management defines free cash flow as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures. Management defines capital expenditures as purchases of property and equipment, which includes capitalization of internal-use software development costs.

Material Limitations Associated with the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Consolidated adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow may have limitations as analytical tools. The non-GAAP financial information presented here should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered measures of the Company's liquidity. There are significant limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Further, these measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, even where similarly titled, and therefore should not be used to compare the Company's performance to that of other companies.
