Financial report summary

  • If demand for our energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions does not develop as we expect, our revenues will suffer, and our business will be harmed.
  • In order to secure contracts for new projects, we typically face a long and variable selling cycle that requires significant resource commitments and requires a long lead time before we realize revenues.
  • We may not recognize all revenues from our backlog or receive all payments anticipated under awarded projects and customer contracts.
  • We may be unable to complete or operate our projects on a profitable basis or as we have committed to our customers.
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have experienced a lengthening of our selling cycle and, if this slowdown continues, the timeline for realizing revenue on new projects may be further delayed.
  • Our business depends in part on federal, state, provincial and local government support for energy efficiency and renewable energy, and a decline in such support could harm our business.
  • A substantial portion of our earnings are derived from the sale of renewable energy certificates (“RECs”) and other environmental attributes, and our failure to be able to sell such attributes could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operation.
  • A significant decline in the fiscal health of federal, state, provincial and local governments could reduce demand for our energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.
  • Provisions in our government contracts may harm our business, financial condition and operating results.
  • The projects we undertake for our customers generally require significant capital, which our customers or we may finance through third parties, and such financing may not be available to our customers or to us on favorable terms, if at all.
  • Project development or construction activities may not be successful, and we may make significant investments without first obtaining project financing, which could increase our costs and impair our ability to recover our investments.
  • Our senior credit facility, project financing term loans and construction loans contain financial and operating restrictions that may limit our business activities and our access to credit.
  • The LIBOR calculation method may change and LIBOR is expected to be phased out after 2021.
  • If our subsidiaries default on their obligations under their debt instruments, we may need to make payments to lenders to prevent foreclosure on the collateral securing the debt.
  • Our business is affected by seasonal trends and construction cycles, and these trends and cycles could have an adverse effect on our operating results.
  • We may have exposure to additional tax liabilities and our effective tax rate may increase or fluctuate, which could increase our income tax expense and reduce our net income.
  • Changes in the laws and regulations governing the public procurement of ESPCs could have a material impact on our business.
  • Failure of third parties to manufacture quality products or provide reliable services in a timely manner could cause delays in the delivery of our services and completion of our projects, which could damage our reputation, have a negative impact on our relationships with our customers and adversely affect our growth.
  • We may have liability to our customers under our ESPCs if our projects fail to deliver the energy use reductions to which we are committed under the contract.
  • We may assume responsibility under customer contracts for factors outside our control, including, in connection with some customer projects, the risk that fuel prices will increase.
  • Our business depends on experienced and skilled personnel and substantial specialty subcontractor resources, and if we lose key personnel or if we are unable to attract and integrate additional skilled personnel, it will be more difficult for us to manage our business and complete projects.
  • If we cannot obtain surety bonds and letters of credit, our ability to operate may be restricted.
  • We operate in a highly competitive industry, and our current or future competitors may be able to compete more effectively than we do, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, revenues, growth rates and market share.
  • Our small-scale renewable energy plants may not generate expected levels of output.
  • We have not entered into long-term offtake agreements for a portion of the output from our small-scale renewable energy plants and a portion of the related RINs are not subject to long term contracts.
  • We may not be able to replace expiring offtake agreements with contracts on similar terms. If we are unable to replace an expired offtake agreement with an acceptable new contract, we may be required to remove the small-scale renewable energy plant from the site or, alternatively, we may sell the assets to the customer.
  • We plan to expand our business in part through future acquisitions, but we may not be able to identify or complete suitable acquisitions.
  • We may be required to write-off or impair capitalized costs or intangible assets in the future, or we may incur restructuring costs or other charges, each of which could harm our earnings.
  • We need governmental approvals and permits, and we typically must meet specified qualifications, in order to undertake our energy efficiency projects and construct, own and operate our small-scale renewable energy projects, and any failure to do so would harm our business.
  • Many of our small-scale renewable energy projects are, and other future projects may be, subject to or affected by U.S. federal energy regulation or other regulations that govern the operation, ownership and sale of the facility, or the sale of electricity from the facility.
  • International expansion is one of our growth strategies, and international operations will expose us to additional risks that we do not face in the United States, which could have an adverse effect on our operating results.
  • Changes in utility regulation and tariffs could adversely affect our business.
  • The Securities and Exchange Commission’s investigation into our revenue recognition and compensation practices in our software-as-a-service, or SaaS, businesses could result in a restatement of our financial statements, investment in remediation of our internal controls, sanctions or penalties, distraction of our management, and litigation from third parties, each of which could adversely affect or cause variability in our financial results.
  • The trading price of our Class A common stock is volatile.
  • Holders of our Class A common stock are entitled to one vote per share, and holders of our Class B common stock are entitled to five votes per share. The lower voting power of our Class A common stock may negatively affect the attractiveness of our Class A common stock to investors and, as a result, its market value.
  • For the foreseeable future, Mr. Sakellaris or his affiliates will be able to control the selection of all members of our board of directors, as well as virtually every other matter that requires stockholder approval, which will severely limit the ability of other stockholders to influence corporate matters.
  • Any future acquisitions that we may make could disrupt our business, cause dilution to our stockholders and harm our business, financial condition or operating results.
  • Compliance with environmental laws could adversely affect our operating results.
  • Our activities and operations are subject to numerous health and safety laws and regulations, and if we violate such regulations, we could face penalties and fines.
  • We are subject to various privacy and consumer protection laws.
  • We are exposed to the credit risk of some of our customers.
  • Fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates can impact our results.
  • Public health threats or outbreaks of communicable diseases could have a material adverse effect on our operations and financial results.
Management Discussion
  • Our results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 reflect year-over-year growth in terms of revenues, operating income, and net income attributable to common shareholders. All financial result comparisons made below are against the same prior year period unless otherwise noted.
  • •Revenues: total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2021 increased over 2020 primarily due to a $36.3 million, or 23%, increase in our project revenue with contributions across a number of geographies and markets, and an $8.2 million, or 28% increase in our energy asset revenue attributed to the continued growth of our operating portfolio, strong renewable gas production and higher pricing on renewable identification numbers (“RINs”) generated from certain non-solar distributed generation assets in operation. Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2021 increased over 2020 primarily due to a $72.6 million, or 24%, increase, in our project revenue and a $13.3 million, or 23% increase in our energy asset revenue for the same reasons noted above.
  • •Cost of Revenues and Gross Profit: the increase in cost of revenues is primarily due to the increase in project revenues described above. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of revenue increased as our revenue mix continued to shift towards our higher margin Energy Assets business.
