ZBB Energy Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

Commercial Product Sales Revenue Increased Over Ten Times From the Prior Year Quarter

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."

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
