RENO, Nev. , Feb. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ormat Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”, “we”, “Ormat” or “us”) (NYSE: ORA) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2019 and a transition of its senior management.

MANAGEMENT TRANSITIONS

Mr. Angel has decided to retire from his position as Chief Executive Officer, effective July 1, 2020, after six years of successful service to the Company, its employees and its shareholders.  It is intended that Mr. Angel will become a member of Ormat’s Board of Directors before his retirement as Chief Executive Officer and will continue to be employed by the Company through December 31, 2020 in order to assist with the management transition.

Ormat’s Board of Directors has appointed Mr. Blachar, the Company’s President and Chief Financial Officer, to succeed Mr. Angel.  Mr. Blachar will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer on July 1, 2020 upon Mr. Angel’s retirement. Mr. Blachar has served as Chief Financial Officer of Ormat since 2013 and was instrumental in the strategic development and growth of the company during that period. Previously, he held senior managerial positions with Shikun & Binui Ltd., A.D.O. Group Ltd., Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. and Amdocs Limited.

Mr. Blachar will be succeeded in his role as Chief Financial Officer by Assaf Ginzburg, effective May 10, 2020, at which point Mr. Blachar will serve as President of the Company until assuming his role as Chief Executive Officer on July 1, 2020. Mr. Ginzburg currently serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DK) and Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE: DKL), and has over 15 years of experience in the energy industry. In his financial positions, Mr. Ginzburg supervised teams of senior financial professionals and has significant experience in all aspects of corporate finance, financial planning, tax, accounting and investor relations.

“Ormat is well positioned with broad and committed senior leadership, enabling a smooth and seamless transition,” commented Mr. Angel. “Over the last seven years, Doron has proved himself to be a talented and outstanding executive with demonstrated ability as a business leader. I am confident that Doron will lead Ormat to continued success. Assaf Ginzburg is a proven financial executive with significant experience and Ormat will benefit from his expertise as we continue to grow. I look forward to continuing to be part of the Ormat family and, in the future, to contribute to Ormat’s success as a member of the Board of Directors.”

The Board of Directors of Ormat issued the following statement: “Isaac has led Ormat to become not only a geothermal industry leader, but also in the development of initiatives in the broader renewable energy sector. Isaac established a strong and responsible corporate culture, built a strong management team and created lasting value for employees, customers, and shareholders. We wish him the best in his well-deserved retirement from day-to-day leadership of Ormat and are grateful that he has agreed to continue to serve the Company in the future as a member of the Board of Directors. The Board is confident that the Company will reach new heights under Doron’s leadership. Doron has been a strategic executive with a deep understanding of our industry and how to grow our business profitably. He has proven invaluable over the past seven years. Finally, we welcome Assaf Ginzburg to the Ormat team.”

“This was a positive ending to a strong year for Ormat,” commented Mr. Angel, Chief Executive Officer. “With the encouraging regulatory environment, robust growth plan and increasing market demand for base-load renewable energy, Ormat is well-positioned for continued success in 2020 and beyond. Our electricity segment delivered 6.0% full-year growth despite no contribution by Puna for all of 2019 and we signed three important PPAs in Hawaii and California, giving us great visibility into the coming year. We now expect Puna to re-start operations in the second half of 2020 due to a delay in a building permit that was received just last week. In the product segment, we are close to signing a significant contract that, if signed, would replenish our backlog. Our storage and management services segment is growing, and as customers continue to seek innovative ways to improve efficiency of renewable energy systems through storage, we believe that this portion of our business will become increasingly relevant.”

Mr. Angel continued, “Confidence in our business is growing with the recent extension of federal tax incentives, which supports our accelerated growth plans in the U.S. Today, we announce our 2022 growth targets, which projects the addition of 180MW to 200MW of new megawatts of generating capacity from geothermal and solar by the end of 2022 and are in an advance stage of securing a new operating and development pipeline of energy storage projects, demonstrating progress towards our stated goal to evolve from a geothermal leader to a leader in renewable energy. This evolution ties nicely with our energy storage efforts, positioning Ormat as an industry leader with a comprehensive range of products, solutions, properties and expertise to deliver clean, renewable energy in a variety of ways.”

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

  • Ormat signed two similar 10-year PPAs with Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) and Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP), under which SVCE and MBCP will each purchase 7MW (for a total of 14MW) of power generated by the expected 30MW Casa Diablo-IV (CD4) geothermal project located in Mammoth Lakes, California.

  • Ormat’s subsidiary, Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV), and Hawaiian Electric’s Hawaii Electric Light amended and restated a PPA for dispatchable geothermal power sold from Ormat’s Puna complex, located on the Big Island of Hawaii through 2052. The PPA increased contracted capacity under the agreement and provided for new fixed prices, regardless of changes to fossil fuel pricing.

2020 GUIDANCE

Mr. Angel added, “We expect full-year 2020 total revenues of between $720 million and $740 million with electricity segment revenues between $560 million and $570 million. We expect product segment revenues of between $140 million and $150 million. Revenues from energy storage and demand response activity are expected to be between $15 million and $20 million. We expect 2020 Adjusted EBITDA of between $405 million and $415 million for the full year. We expect annual Adjusted EBITDA attributable to minority interest to be approximately $26 million.”

The Company provides a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019. However, the Company is unable to provide a reconciliation for its Adjusted EBITDA guidance range due to high variability and complexity with respect to estimating forward looking amounts for impairments and disposition and acquisition of business interests, income taxes expense related to still evolving effects of the tax law reform in the United States and other non-cash expenses and adjusting items that are excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA.

FOURTH QUARTER 2019 FINANCIAL RESULTS (COMPARING THE QUARTER ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2019 TO THE QUARTER ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2018)

Total revenues for the quarter were $192.4 million, up 1.0% compared to the same quarter last year. Electricity segment revenues increased 4.4% to $144.4 million, up from $138.3 million last year. The increase was mainly attributable to the commencement of commercial operation of the third phase of the McGinness Hills Complex in Nevada, which began in December 2018. Product segment revenues decreased 11.9% to $43.8 million, down from $49.7 million in the same quarter last year due to timing of revenue recognition of the projects included in our backlog. Energy Storage and Management Services segment revenues were $4.3 million compared to $2.4 million in the same quarter last year. The increase was mainly driven by the start of operation of two storage energy facilities in the PJM market.

General and administrative expenses were $14.0 million, or 7.3% of total revenues, compared to $4.4 million, or 2.3% of total revenues. The increase was primarily attributable to $10.3 million of income resulting from the release of an earn-out provision related to the acquisition of our Viridity business that offset expenses in the year ended December 31, 2018. General and administrative expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2018 constituted 7.7% of total revenues for such period excluding the earn-out adjustment.

Net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders was $12.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared to $18.2 million, or $0.36 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA4 was $102.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and $104.7 million excluding the impact of Puna that was shutdown following the volcanic eruption in 2018, compared to $113.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and $103.6 million excluding the impact of Puna. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA without the impact of Puna is mainly related to the commencement of commercial operation of the third phase of the McGinness Hills Complex. A reconciliation of GAAP net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is set forth below in this release.

FULL YEAR 2019 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

For the year ended December 31, 2019, total revenues were $746.0 million, up from $719.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, an increase of 3.7%. Electricity segment revenues increased 6.0% to $540.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, up from $509.9 million for 2018. Product segment revenues decreased 5.3% to $191.0 million for the year, down from $201.7 million last year. Energy Storage and Management Services segment revenues were $14.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2019 compared to $7.6 million in 2018.

General and administrative expenses for the full year of 2019 were $55.8 million, or 7.5% of total revenues, compared to $47.8 million, or 6.6% of total revenues last year. This increase was mainly due to a $10.3 million adjustment in respect to an earn out related to the acquisition of the Viridity business in 2018, which was partially offset by costs related to the identification of a material weakness related to taxes in the fourth quarter of 2017 and the restatement of 2017 financial statements and costs related to the acquisition of USG.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2019 was $93.5 million compared to $110.1 million for the prior year period.

Net income attributable to the company’s stockholders was $88.1 million, or $1.72 per diluted share, compared to $98.0 million, or $1.92 per diluted share, for the same period a year ago.

Adjusted Net income attributable to the Company's stockholders4 for 2019 of $74.8 million, or $1.46 per diluted share. Adjusted net income attributable to the company's stockholders and diluted EPS for 2018 of $106.1 million or, $2.08 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA4 for the year ended December 31, 2019 was $384.3 million and $385.5 excluding the impact of Puna that was shutdown following the volcanic eruption in 2018, compared to $368.0 million for 2018 and $354.7 million, respectively, an increase of 8.7% in the Adjusted EBITDA without the impact of Puna. The reconciliation of GAAP Net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is set forth below in this release.

DIVIDEND

On February 25, 2020, the Company’s Board of Directors declared, approved and authorized payment of a quarterly dividend of $0.11 per share pursuant to the Company’s dividend policy. The dividend will be paid on March 26, 2020 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 12, 2020. In addition, the Company expects to pay a quarterly dividend of $0.11 per share in each of the next three quarters.

We calculate EBITDA as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for (i) termination fees, (ii) impairment of long-lived assets, (iii) write-off of unsuccessful exploration activities, (iv) any mark-to-market gains or losses from accounting for derivatives, (v) merger and acquisition transaction costs, (vi) stock-based compensation, (vii) gain or loss from extinguishment of liabilities, (viii) gain or loss on sale of subsidiary and property, plant and equipment and (ix) other unusual or non-recurring items. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of financial performance or liquidity under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or as a measure of liquidity or an alternative to net earnings as indicators of our operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a performance metric because it is a metric used by our Board of Directors and senior management in evaluating our financial performance. However, other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do.

The following table reconciles net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the three and 12-month periods ended December 31, 2019 and 2018.
