WILLISTON, Vt., March 30, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–iSun, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISUN) (the “Company,” or “iSun”), a leading solar energy and clean mobility infrastructure company with 50 years of experience accelerating the adoption of innovative electrical technologies, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2022.

- Gross profit of $5.4 million
- Gross margin of 21.0%, up 30 basis points from 20.7% in 2021’s fourth quarter

“We are very pleased with our top-line revenue of $76.5 million in 2022, above the forecast we provided in November 2022, despite the industry-wide supply chain challenges,” said Jeffrey Peck, Chief Executive Officer of iSun. “Over the course of the year, we added $138.4 million in backlog to drive our total backlog to $164.2 million at the end of 2022. We demonstrated continuing success in winning new business contracts and began working through our backlog with higher throughput and productivity. In our utility and development segment, our pipeline reached a record 1.6GW of projects at the end of 2022, up 1.1GW from the end of 2021. Moreover, we began diversifying our business in line with our strategy of participating across the spectrum of the industry, beginning to implement an important EV carport contract and starting to participate in joint ventures of projects.
“Given the challenges we overcame to generate these results, we are really proud of the team’s hard work in effectively addressing the needs of our customers across our business segments and developing strong customer relationships for the company going forward. That dedication was manifested in our Adjusted EBITDA profitability in the fourth quarter, illustrating our path towards scaling efficiently and profitably. Now, our focus is on executing these projects efficiently this year and beyond. We are pleased with the industry stability provided in the climate change legislation enacted last summer, since it removes uncertainty and impediments to financing and developing the alternative energy solutions our country needs, which aligns perfectly with our company mission. As these rules and regulations are finalized this year, we anticipate that it will increase the value of all solar assets, those in development and under construction, including our growing pipeline.”
Fourth Quarter and Full-Year Results
iSun reported fourth quarter 2022 revenue of $25.9 million, compared to $27.0 million in the same period in 2021. Full year 2022 revenue was $76.5 million, representing a $31.2 million or 69% increase over the same period in 2021. This year’s revenue growth was driven primarily by the fulfillment of increased residential consumer demand and expanded services across all markets, as well as execution of the commercial and industrial backlog; total backlog was $164.2 million as of December 31, 2022. iSun also generated new future demand by adding $11.0 million in new business during the fourth quarter.
Divisional highlights as of December 31, 2022, include:

Gross margin for the quarter was 21.0%, up 30 basis points from 20.7% in the same period in 2021. Full year 2022 gross profit was $16.0 million, up $9.6 million from $6.4 million in 2021. Full year 2022 gross margin was 20.9% compared to 14.1% in 2021, up 680 basis points. As synergies among the company’s segments grow, gross margin is expected to continue to strengthen.
Operating income in the fourth quarter was a loss of ($2.1) million compared to a loss of ($3.6) million in 2021’s fourth quarter. Full year 2022 operating income was a loss of ($18.3) million compared to a loss of ($10.6) million in 2021. Non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses were $1.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to $0.4 million in prior year period. Full year 2022 non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses were $7.1 million compared to $1.0 million in 2021.
iSun reported a net loss of ($3.1) million, or ($0.12) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to a net loss of ($1.1) million, or ($0.07) per share, in the same period in 2021. Full year 2022 net loss was ($16.6) million or ($1.18) per share, compared to a net loss of ($6.2) million or ($0.67) per share, in 2021.
Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2022 was $0.3 million or $0.02 per share, compared to $0.9 million or $0.14 per share in the same period in 2021. Full year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of ($5.6) million or ($0.40) per share, compared to a loss of ($3.9) million or ($0.42) per share in 2021.
In the second half of 2022 and so far this year, iSun has secured significant business contracts across business segments throughout its market areas. This success, combined with the anticipated reduction of supply chain and logistics challenges that affected revenue growth in 2022, is expected to enable the company to produce total revenue of $95-100 million for the full year 2023, representing a 24-31% increase over total revenues of $76.5 million in 2022. iSun also anticipates continued gross margin expansion and adjusted EBITDA profitability by the end of 2023.
iSun’ s comprehensive platform and recent investments position the company to respond effectively to increased energy demand associated with both solar energy and automotive electrification, and make iSun an important partner to consumers, businesses, industries, and utilities as they transition to renewable energy sources. iSun expects the recent climate legislation, contained in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA), to provide a more favorable environment for solar development and EV infrastructure over the next 10 years, and with the expected finalization of rules this year, to increase the value of solar assets, both in development and under construction.
Added Mr. Peck, “As we move through 2023, we are confident that our full portfolio of capabilities positions us increasingly well to accelerate our growth, as demonstrated by the our continued success in winning significant contracts. Our platform delivers a much-needed suite of services that meets the needs of a variety of customers and our team brings the expertise to execute efficiently on our customers’ needs. We continue to address increased demand for alternative energy, driven by higher residential and commercial energy costs. Now that our country’s energy policy has been established for the next 10 years through IRA, we expect those macroeconomic factors to help us scale our operations significantly in the next few years, and thus generate steadily higher revenue and reach operating profitability.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Included in this presentation are discussions and reconciliations of earnings before interest, income tax and depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and EBITDA adjusted for certain non-cash, non-recurring or non-core expenses (“Adjusted EBITDA”) to net loss in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain non-cash and other expenses, certain legal services costs, professional and consulting fees and expenses, and one-time Reverse Merger and Recapitalization expenses and certain adjustments. We believe that these non-GAAP measures illustrate the underlying financial and business trends relating to our results of operations and comparability between current and prior periods. We also use these non-GAAP measures to establish and monitor operational goals.
These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute or superior to, the other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Using only the non-GAAP financial measures, particularly Adjusted EBITDA, to analyze our performance would have material limitations because such calculations are based on a subjective determination regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find significant. We compensate for these limitations by presenting both the GAAP and non-GAAP measures of our operating results. Although other companies may report measures entitled “Adjusted EBITDA” or similar in nature, numerous methods may exist for calculating a company’s Adjusted EBITDA or similar measures. As a result, the methods that we use to calculate Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the methods used by other companies to calculate their non-GAAP measures.
The reconciliations of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, are shown in the table below:
|Depreciation and amortization||7,071||982|
|Change in fair value of warrant liability||(138||)||(976||)|
|Income tax (benefit)||(752||)||(1,915||)|
|Weighted Average shares outstanding||14,089,499||9,264,919|
