BOSTON, Nov 10, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENOC), a leading developer and provider of clean and intelligent energy solutions, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2008.
"We believe that the appeal of our solutions is even more evident in the current market environment as utilities seek capital-efficient resources and end-users look to reduce their energy costs and drive productivity," said EnerNOC Chairman and CEO, Tim Healy. "Our demand response and energy efficiency applications are flexible, effective substitutes for capital-intensive supply-side infrastructure and deliver reliable, cost-effective, and clean capacity to the grid."
"During the quarter, we drove record quarterly revenues and continued to increase our operational efficiency, while generating over $24 million of demand response payments and energy cost savings for our customer network. We believe that our differentiated platform, revenue visibility, and strong cash position have us well on track to being cash flow positive from operations in the second half of 2009 and achieving profitability in 2010."
Revenues -- The Company reported record revenues of $44.2 million for the third quarter of 2008, compared to $19.1 million for the same period in 2007, an increase of $25.0 million, or 131%.
Cost of Revenues -- Cost of revenues for the third quarter of 2008 was $25.8 million, compared to $11.3 million for the same period in 2007, an increase of $14.5 million, or 129%.
Gross Profit/Gross Margin -- Gross profit for the third quarter of 2008 was $18.4 million, compared to $7.9 million for the same period in 2007, an increase of $10.5million, or 133%. Gross margin was 41.6% for the third quarter of 2008, compared to 41.2% for same period in 2007.
Operating Expenses -- Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2008 were $21.1 million (including $2.5 million of non-cash stock-based compensation charges), compared to $12.0 million for the same period in 2007 (including $1.4 million of non-cash stock-based compensation charges), an increase of $9.1 million, or 75%. The Company's improved operating leverage was reflected in the increase in megawatts under management per full-time employee from 4.4 as of December 31, 2007 to 5.3 at the end of the third quarter of 2008.
Net Loss -- Net loss for the third quarter of 2008 was $3.1 million (including $2.5 million of non-cash stock-based compensation charges), or $0.16 cents per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.5million (including $1.4 million of non-cash stock-based compensation charges), or $0.14 cents per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2007.
Cash and Cash Equivalents -- As of September 30, 2008, the Company had cash and cash equivalents totaling $53.3 million, a decrease of $17.0 million from cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2007.
Unbilled Revenue -- As of September 30, 2008, the Company had unbilled revenue of $18.6 million. Under certain contracts and programs, the period during which the Company is obligated to perform may be shorter than the period over which it receives payments under such contracts or programs. In these cases, the Company records revenue over the mandatory performance obligation period, and a portion of the revenue that has been earned is recorded and accrued as unbilled revenue.
EnerNOC's third quarter 2008 business highlights included:
-- Increasing demand response megawatts under management as of September 30, 2008 to over 1,760, not all of which generated revenue during the quarter.
-- Expanding its commercial, institutional, and industrial demand response customer network to over 1,400 customers across 3,400 sites.
-- Dispatching demand response resources in its network 58 times during the quarter, bringing the Company's performance year to date to 98% based on nominated versus delivered capacity.
-- Signing provider contracts with both the State of Rhode Island and the State of Vermont that facilitate the enrollment of government facilities within those two states in EnerNOC's demand response network.
-- Signing a new Clean Gen contract with San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) to provide up to 25 additional megawatts of capacity in SDG&E's service territory. This contract is subject to regulatory approval.
-- Qualifying its energy efficiency solution for Class III renewable energy credits in the State of Connecticut. This is the first instance of a monitoring-based commissioning initiative qualifying as a renewable energy source that can be counted toward Connecticut's aggressive renewable energy portfolio standard.
-- Entering into a $35 million secured credit and term loan facility with Silicon Valley Bank, a portion of which has been used to pay off the $4.4 million outstanding balance of the Company's credit facility with BlueCrest Capital, L.P. The Company anticipates using the $30.6 million balance of this new secured facility primarily to fund credit requirements to grid operators and utilities and for other general corporate purposes.
-- Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, the Company appointed JamesL.Turner to its Board of Directors. Mr. Turner is president and chief operating officer of U.S. Franchised Electric and Gas for Duke Energy Corporation and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Electric Power Research Institute.
-- Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, the Company has sold approximately 100 new megawatts, bringing its demand response megawatts under management as of the date of this release to over 1,850.
The Company reiterates its full year 2008 revenue guidance of between $101 million and $107 million. Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2008 is expected to be approximately $19 million, primarily as a result of the Company having already recognized in the second and third quarters of 2008 the capacity-based revenue from PJM's 2008-2009 Emergency Load Response Program. The Company continues to expect its 2008 gross margin to be higher than its full year 2007 gross margin of 36% and is currently trending in line with its most recent operating expense guidance. The Company continues to expect to have between 2,000 and 2,200 megawatts of demand response capacity under management by the end of 2008 and to generate positive cash flow from operations in the second half of 2009, with 2010 being its first full year of profitability.
