STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Altus Power, Inc. (NYSE: AMPS) (“Altus Power” or the “Company”), a premier commercial-scale clean electrification company, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

“During second quarter we entered into a large number of commitments to supply clean energy with new customers stemming from our early collaboration with CBRE and continued collaboration with Blackstone and our channel partners,” said Lars Norell, Co-CEO of Altus Power. “Converting on these opportunities is a crucial step in building our portfolio of long-term contracted assets we’re focused on at Altus Power.”

“Altus Power’s execution on this growing scale of customer engagement brings into focus our vision for a national construction platform,” added Gregg Felton, Co-CEO of Altus Power. “During the first six months of 2022 we’ve added significant talent to our team to help convert our pipeline into Altus Power operating projects.”

Second Quarter Financial Results

Operating revenues during the second quarter of 2022 totaled $24.8 million, compared to $17.6 million during the same period of 2021, an increase of 41%. The increase reflects the growth of megawatts installed over the past twelve months. Second quarter 2022 GAAP net income totaled $21.6 million, compared to net loss of $0.4 million for the same period last year. The increase in net income in the quarter was driven by the $21.4 million non-cash gain from remeasurement of both warrants and alignment shares. This benefit from remeasurement is non-cash and is driven by a lower Altus Power common share price between March 31, 2022, and June 30, 2022. Both the warrants and alignment shares are revalued quarterly according to our share price at the end of each quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA* during the second quarter of 2022 was $13.9 million, compared to $10.2 million for the second quarter of 2021, a 37% increase. The quarter over quarter growth in adjusted EBITDA* is primarily the result of increased revenue from additional solar energy facilities, partially offset by an increase in our general and administrative expenses. Adjusted EBITDA margin* during the second quarter of 2022 was 56%.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Altus Power ended the second quarter of 2022 with $295.1 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents, and $538.3 million of total debt. The Company expects to fund its operations using available cash, additional borrowings under debt facilities and third-party tax equity financing.

2022 Guidance

Altus Power reaffirms its full year 2022 adjusted EBITDA* guidance range of $57-63 million, as well as guidance for 2022 adjusted EBITDA margin* in the mid-50% range. Management focuses on adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as key measures of profitable growth and approximation of cash flow generation.

Conference Call Information

The Altus Power management team will host a conference call to discuss its first quarter 2022 financial results on Monday, August 15, 2022, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time. The call can be accessed via a live webcast accessible on the Events & Presentations page in the Investor Relations section of Altus Power’s website at www.altuspower.com. An archive of the webcast will be available after the call on the Investor Relations section of Altus Power’s website as well.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

*Denotes Non-GAAP financial measure. We present our operating results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“GAAP”). We believe certain financial measures, such as adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin provide users of our financial statements with supplemental information that may be useful in evaluating our business. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus net interest expense, depreciation, amortization and accretion expense, income tax expense, acquisition and entity formation costs, non-cash compensation expense, and excluding the effect of certain non-recurring items we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operating performance such as, but not limited to, gain on fair value remeasurement of contingent consideration, gain on disposal of property, plant and equipment, change in fair value of redeemable warrant liability, change in fair value of alignment shares, loss on extinguishment of debt, and other miscellaneous items of other income and expenses.

We define adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA divided by operating revenues.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures that we use to measure our performance. We believe that investors and analysts also use adjusted EBITDA in evaluating our operating performance. This measurement is not recognized in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to adjusted EBITDA is net income and to adjusted EBITDA margin is net income over operating revenues. The presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin should not be construed to suggest that our future results will be unaffected by non-cash or non-recurring items. In addition, our calculation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are not necessarily comparable to adjusted EBITDA as calculated by other companies and investors and analysts should read carefully the components of our calculations of these non-GAAP financial measures.

We believe adjusted EBITDA is useful to management, investors and analysts in providing a measure of core financial performance adjusted to allow for comparisons of results of operations across reporting periods on a consistent basis. These adjustments are intended to exclude items that are not indicative of the ongoing operating performance of the business. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by our management for internal planning purposes, including our consolidated operating budget, and by our board of directors in setting performance-based compensation targets. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to but viewed in conjunction with GAAP results, as we believe it provides a more complete understanding of ongoing business performance and trends than GAAP measures alone. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Altus Power does not provide GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty and without unreasonable effort, items such as acquisition and entity formation costs, gain on fair value remeasurement of contingent consideration, change in fair value of redeemable warrant liability, change in fair value of alignment shares. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to Altus Power’s results computed in accordance with GAAP.
