Sunworks Provides Preliminary Second Quarter 2023 Business Update

PROVO, UT / ACCESSWIRE / August 2, 2023 / Sunworks, Inc. (NASDAQ:SUNW), a leading provider of solar power and battery storage solutions for residential, agriculture, commercial, industrial, and public works markets, today announced select preliminary operational and financial data for the three months ended June 30, 2023.


  • Total revenue of range between $33.0 and 35.0 million
  • Total Adjusted EBITDA range between ($10.0) and ($11.5) million
  • Residential Direct sales channel represented approximately 45% of new originations
  • Total backlog of approximately $84 million
  • Approximately $­4.8 million in cash and restricted cash as of June 30, 2023


"Following a period of strong residential origination activity in the first quarter, demand conditions softened during the second quarter in several markets, including California, where consumers adapted to the NEM 3.0 transition," stated Gaylon Morris, Chief Executive Officer of Sunworks. "Further, with the rise in interest rates, customers have contended with a higher overall cost of ownership, even though the long-term economics of solar remain highly favorable. These factors, together with utility approval delays in California, reduced our productivity during the second quarter, resulting in lower fixed cost absorption. In view of the current operating environment, we've taken decisive action to further right-size our cost structure, including a reduction in force. While the Residential business manages through this transitional period, our Commercial segment continues to execute well, while continuing to build a strengthening sales pipeline, which is supportive of a targeted return to positive free cash flow generation."


EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net income (loss) excluding interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is further adjusted for non-cash stock-based compensation expense, goodwill impairment and acquisition transaction expenses. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by the Company to evaluate operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions for the allocation of capital. The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA to provide information that may assist investors in understanding its financial results. However, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a substitute for net income (loss).

Certain non-GAAP financial measures are presented in this press release, including Adjusted EBITDA, to provide information that may assist investors in understanding the Company's financial results and assessing its prospects for future performance. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are important indicators of our operating performance because they exclude items that are unrelated to, and may not be indicative of, our core operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures, as we calculate them, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies and may not be appropriate measures for comparing the performance of other companies relative to the Company. These non-GAAP financial results are not intended to represent, and should not be considered to be more meaningful measures than, or alternatives to, measures of operating performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. To the extent we utilize such non-GAAP financial measures in the future, we expect to calculate them using a consistent method from period to period. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided below.
