Alternus Energy reports second-quarter results juiced by recent Italy solar acquisition

Proactive Investors Friday, 16 August 2019
Alternus Energy Inc (OTCMKTS:ALTN), a renewable energy company, posted second-quarter results Friday headlined by a jump in adjusted revenue.  During the quarter, the company stopped energy trading activities in Romania, which, in the short term, was a big reason the quarter ended with revenue of $934,000 — 4% less than the second quarter of 2018.  Adjusting for the costs associated with closing that lower margin arm of the company, however, revenue increased 38% year over year. Gross margins jumped 83%.  During the quarter, Alternus acquired 4.1 megawatts of operating solar parks in Italy, which CEO Vincent Browne believes made an immediate difference to the balance sheet.

Our pipeline of additional opportunities remains robust as we push towards our goal of exiting 2019 with over 100 MWs of owned energy assets.” The agreement with BayWa, signed June 6, will provide Alternus with monitoring and preventative maintenance at its solar projects in Germany, Italy, Romania and the Netherlands. The company's earnings were a loss of $0.02 per share, down from breakeven a year ago. Contact Andrew Kessel at [email protected]  Follow him on Twitter @Andrew_Kessel
