Management Commentary

“We are continuing to benefit from positive momentum, especially in our commercial and industrial segment, as we generated 51.8% higher revenue in the 2023 second quarter compared to last year. Our team is focused on executing our growth strategy, leveraging the positive tailwinds from climate legislation and higher customer interest in alternative energy solutions,” said Jeffrey Peck, Chief Executive Officer of iSun. “I am very pleased by our continued success in achieving new contract wins, as we added $8 million in the second quarter, for a total of $40 million in the first half of this year, a record pace for iSun. Our improved synergies as we scale, along with higher productivity, enabled us to increase our margins by 90 basis points in the second quarter to 23.7%. We have increased our labor utilization this year, as part of our ongoing efficiency efforts that included the consolidation of our commercial and industrial divisions, which offsets the continuing challenges we experience from supply chain constraints, even as they are lessening compared to last year.  All these efforts provide us the confidence to reaffirm our annual revenue guidance for 2023, as we work diligently to implement and complete our many projects.”

Second Quarter and Year to Date Results

iSun reported second quarter 2023 revenue of $25.0 million, up 51.8% from $16.5 million in the same period in 2022. YTD revenue was $42.4 million, representing a $10.8 million or 34.2% increase over the same period in 2022.  Revenue growth was driven primarily by the fulfillment of commercial and industrial projects across multiple states receiving notice to proceed as well as our residential backlog; total backlog was $161.8 million as of June 30, 2023. iSun also generated new future demand by adding $8 million in new business during the second quarter and a total of $40 million in the first half of 2023, primarily driven by strong demand for commercial and industrial services as well as for focused project origination and design services for partners on large national carport projects.

Divisional highlights as of June 30, 2023, include:

  • Residential division generated revenue of $9.3 and $16.2 million in the second quarter and YTD respectively. Customer orders of approximately $13.1 million are expected to be completed within three to five months.
  • The commercial and industrial division, which were consolidated as of January 1, 2023, generated revenue of $15.6 and $25.9 million in the second quarter and YTD respectively; the division has a contracted backlog of approximately $140.7 million expected to be completed within 10-18 months.
  • Utility and development division generated revenue of $0.1 and $0.3 million in the second quarter and YTD respectively. The Utility division has a contracted backlog of approximately $8.0 million and 1.6 GW of projects currently under development expected to achieve NTP in 2023 and early 2024.

Gross profit in the second quarter was $5.9 million, up 58.2% from $3.8 million in the second quarter of 2022. Gross margin for the quarter was 23.7%, up 90 basis points from 22.8% in the same period in 2022. YTD gross profit was $9.5 million, up 37% compared to $6.9 million during the same period in 2022. YTD gross margin was 22.4%, up 50 basis points compared to 21.9% during the same period in 2022. Margin is expected to continue to expand in the second half of 2023 consistent with scaling of operations and planned increase in residential implementations, as part of the strategy to expand gross margin each year as synergies among the company’s segments grow.

The operating loss in the second quarter was ($1.8) million, a 68.8% improvement compared to a loss of ($5.6) million in 2022’s second quarter, primarily reflecting the higher revenues and lower operating expenses as part of the company’s efficiency focus. YTD operating income was a loss of ($4.4) million, a 61.1% reduction compared to a loss of ($11.3) million during the same period in 2022. Non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses were $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2023, compared to $1.8 million in prior year period. YTD non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses were $1.5 million compared to $3.5 million in the same period in 2022.

iSun reported a net loss of ($2.5) million, or ($0.13) per share, in the second quarter of 2023, compared to a net loss of ($5.7) million, or ($0.40) per share, in the same period in 2022. YTD net loss was ($5.5) million or ($0.31) per share compared to a net loss of ($8.6) million or ($0.64) per share in the same period in 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2023 was a loss of ($0.6) million or ($0.03) per share, compared to a loss of ($3.2) million or ($0.23) per share in 2022’s second quarter. YTD Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of ($1.8) million or ($0.10) per share compared to a loss of ($3.4) million or ($0.25) per share in the same period in 2022.


iSun’s continuing success in winning new business, from solar projects to EV infrastructure and project origination and development services, along with its sizable and growing backlog, 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. With the positive results from its focus on efficiency so far this year, iSun also anticipates continued gross margin expansion and adjusted EBITDA profitability by the end of 2023.

Added Mr. Peck, “We are making excellent progress in tracking against the targets we set for iSun’s performance this year, as we execute on our strategy and fulfill our commitments to investors. We remain confident that our capabilities effectively address the needs of more customers and position us to accelerate our growth in the evolving alternative energy sector. Our success in winning significant contracts with existing and new customers is based upon our platform approach that delivers a suite of services to meet the needs of diverse customers. This year, we are also benefiting from the expertise of our team in executing efficiently on our backlog to address our customers’ needs. Now that our country’s energy policy has been established for the next 10 years through the IRA legislation passed last summer, we expect those macroeconomic factors to help us scale our operations significantly in the next few years, and thus enable us to 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:

(1)Other costs consist of one-time legal expenses related to the settlement of a lawsuit.
(2)As the forgiveness of the PPP loan is considered a one-time expense, the Company considered including the forgiveness of $0 million and $2.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, as a reconciling item. The Company excluded the forgiveness on the basis that had it not been awarded a PPP loan, the Company would have terminated, furlough or reduced its workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.
