MILWAUKEE, WI -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- ZBB Energy Corporation (NYSE MKT: ZBB), a leading developer of intelligent, renewable energy power platforms and hybrid vehicle control systems, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2012.
Financial results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2012 as compared to the second quarter ended December 31, 2011 included:
- Product sales increased more than ten times from $240,921 to $2,748,007.
- Gross profit on product sales of $482,801 and an increase in gross margin on product sales from 7% last quarter to 18% this quarter.
- Total revenues, including engineering and development revenue, increased more than five times from $440,921 to $2,748,007.
- Net loss of $3,083,457 compared to $2,730,310. The increase in net loss is due primarily to the increase in equity in loss of investee company(China joint venture).
- Loss per share decreased to ($0.04) from ($0.08).
As of February 13, 2013, the Company's backlog was $6.1 million compared to backlog of $5.3 million on November 5, 2012. ZBB ended the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 with total assets of $17.0 million including $2.4 million in cash and $1.2 million in accounts receivable. Anticipated collections in the third and fourth quarters of this fiscal year associated with current backlog and current accounts receivable is approximately $4.3 million. Operating expenses plus additional inventory purchases for current backlog continue at approximately $1.4 million per month with the Company actively reducing non-essential cash expenses.
The Company is aggressively pursuing additional sales orders and other sources of funding including expansion of contract engineering and development programs through strategic partners. Sufficient cash and working capital through fiscal year 2013 fourth quarter depends on securing additional investment capital or other financing, which may include: collaboration agreements and/or investments from strategic partner/partners, or other financing alternatives.
Highlights of the second quarter of fiscal year 2013
Total revenues increased during the second quarter to $2,748,007 from $440,921 in the prior year quarter. Second quarter product sales increased to $2,748,007 from $240,921 in the prior year quarter, due to successful commercialization and continued sales growth of the Company's ZBB EnerSystem platform and power electronics including hybrid vehicle control systems. There were no engineering and development revenues, as compared to $200,000 in the prior year, due primarily to the completion of various milestones related to engineering and development agreements.
Total expenses for the second quarter were $5,594,078 compared with $3,206,257 in the prior year quarter. The increase in expenses was primarily related to an increase in the cost of product sales and other expenses as follows:
- $2,077,586 increase in cost of product sales was due to the ten-fold increase in ZBB EnerSystem and hybrid vehicle motor controller sales;
- $189,448 increase in advanced engineering and development expenses was due to a shift from engineering contracts to product development and pilot plant operation for the Company's ZBB EnerStore and ZBB EnerSection products;
- $188,732 increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was due primarily to an increase in production management, engineering and sales personnel; and
- $387,681 increase in total other expense primarily as a result of an increase in the equity in loss of investee company of $397,922.
During the second quarter, the Company's major accomplishments included:
- Signed a long-term OEM supply agreement with Crosspoint Kinetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cummins Crosspoint, LLC, for hybrid electronics. The Company received from Crosspoint Kinetics $900,000 of new orders booked in the second quarter, in addition to the original order of $500,000 booked in the first quarter.
- Signed an agreement to supply a 2,000 kWh ZBB EnerStore System, including 40 ZBB EnerStore modules, for the luxury eco-resort The Brando in French Polynesia, designed to be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certified destination resort in the world, as new construction and in the campus category.
- Received a development order to be followed by a prototype order for electronics to be utilized in an innovative generator technology being applied to hydro generation.
- Shipped an eight unit ZBB EnerStore and a ZBB EnerSection power and energy control center system to the microgrid installation at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam (JBPHH) U.S. Military base in Honolulu, Hawaii.
- Shipped an order from the U.S. Navy Fleet and Industrial Supply Center, San Diego (FISCSD) for a 1,000kWh / 500kW-rated energy storage system for use in a microgrid application at the San Nicolas Island Naval Facility, located in the Catalina Island group, just west of Los Angeles, California.
- Achieved a 30% ZBB EnerStore product cost reduction that we expect to begin to realize on orders shipped in the third and fourth quarters.
Six months ended December 31, 2012 compared to six months ended December 31, 2011
For the six month period ending December 31, 2012 compared to the six months ended December 31, 2011:
- Revenues increased 120% to $4,571,328 from $2,078,778.
- Total costs and expenses increased 57% to $10,313,458 from $6,540,596.
- Net loss increased 35% to $5,966,247 from $4,405,758.
- Loss per share declined to ($0.08) from ($0.14).
Milestones achieved subsequent to the end of the second quarter:
- Received an order for a Grid Independent ZBB EnerSystem with ZBB EnerStore zinc bromide flow batteries to provide an integrated Microgrid Energy Management System to the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to serve as a permanent power source, demonstration unit and learning platform in the newly constructed Broadway Building.
- Shipped a ZBB EnerSystem to Lotte Chemical in South Korea, consisting of a ZBB EnerStore flow battery and ZBB EnerSection power and control center.
- Entered into a strategic relationship with BPC Engineering (Moscow, Russia) which introduces ZBB's line of products into the Russian and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) markets.
- Delivered against the initial contract to provide ZBB's second generation retrofit hybrid electric vehicle controller technology to Crosspoint Kinetics.
"The second quarter ten-fold increase in product sales met our plan objectives of year-over-year increases in revenues," said Eric C. Apfelbach, President and CEO. "These shipments provide field-proven references for repeat orders from existing customers and for new customer orders. We are also realizing acceleration of near-term bookings of orders in the funnel as shown by the increase in sales backlog. We believe our success in penetrating key segments over the last couple of quarters positions us well to secure the near term investment capital or other funding we require from strategic partners or other investors."
