EnerNOC, Inc., a leading provider of energy management applications and services for the smart grid, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.
“We are pleased with our strong second quarter results and, in particular, the way we have managed our demand response resources in PJM,” said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. “Based on our execution and better visibility into next year, we are increasing our guidance for 2012 and 2013, including for 2013 an increased GAAP net income range of $0.15 to $0.75 per diluted share and an increased adjusted EBITDA range of $50 million to $75 million.”
• Revenues for the second quarter of 2012 were $33.3 million, compared to $58.9 million for the same period in 2011, a decrease of $25.6 million primarily due to the Company’s change in the timing of PJM Emergency Load Response Program (ELRP) revenue recognition. As previously disclosed, beginning in 2012 the Company will recognize PJM ELRP revenue at the end of the performance period, which ends on September 30th of each year. Excluding PJM ELRP revenue, the Company’s revenues for the second quarter of 2011 were $28.8 million.
• As of June 30, 2012, deferred revenues increased to $38.5 million, of which the Company expects to recognize approximately half by the end of 2012.
• Gross profit for the second quarter of 2012 was $8.3 million, or 25% of revenue, compared to $20.4 million, or 35% of revenue, for the same period in 2011, which included PJM ELRP revenue.
• GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $29.1 million, or $1.10 per basic and diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2011 of $13.0 million, or $0.51 per basic and diluted share.
• Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $24.0 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2011 of $7.8 million, or $0.31 per diluted share.
• Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2012 was negative $18.2 million, compared to negative $3.5 million in the second quarter of 2011.
• Cash flow from operating activities for the second quarter of 2012 was $4.4 million, compared to $13.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. The Company generated negative $1.2 million of free cash flow for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, compared to $5.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.
• As of June 30, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents totaling $79.4 million, a decrease of $7.9 million from cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2011.

The Company currently expects to deliver the following financial results for the quarter ending September 30, 2012 and the years ending December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2013:
Third quarter 2012: The Company expects third quarter revenue to be in the range of $160 million to $176 million. The Company expects third quarter GAAP net income per diluted share to be in the range of $1.60 to $1.90 based on weighted-average diluted shares outstanding of 27.3 million.
Full Year 2012: The Company expects full year 2012 revenue to be in the range of $260 million to $280 million, compared to its previously published 2012 guidance range of $250 million to $280 million. GAAP net loss for 2012 is expected to be in the range of $1.00 to $1.40 per basic and diluted share, compared to the Company’s previously published 2012 guidance range of $1.00 to $1.50 per basic and diluted share. These revised estimates are based on basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 26.6 million, compared to 26.5 million shares used as the basis for the Company’s previously published guidance. Full year 2012 Adjusted EBITDA, which remains unchanged from the Company’s previously published guidance, is expected to be between $5 million and $20 million. The Company expects stock-based compensation expense to be between $14 million and $15 million, amortization of acquisition related intangibles expense to be approximately $7 million, depreciation expense to be between $18 million and $20 million, and interest and other expense, net, to be between $1 million and $2 million. The estimated provision for income taxes is expected to be between $2 million and $2.5 million.
Full Year 2013: The Company expects full year 2013 revenue to be in the range of $350 million to $400 million, consistent with its previously published 2013 guidance. GAAP net income for 2013 is expected to be in the range of $0.15 to $0.75 per diluted share, compared to the Company’s previously published 2013 guidance range of a net loss of $0.25 per basic and diluted share to net income of $0.50 per diluted share. These revised estimates are based on diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 27.7 million compared to 27.5 million diluted shares used as the basis for the Company’s previously published guidance. Full year 2013 Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $50 million and $75 million. The Company expects stock-based compensation expense to be between $12 million and $14 million, amortization of acquisition related intangibles expense to be approximately $7 million, depreciation expense to be between $21 million and $23 million, and interest and other expense, net, to be between $0.5 million and $2 million. The estimated provision for income taxes is expected to be between $5 million and $8 million.
These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. These statements are based on information available as of August 7, 2012, and the Company assumes no obligation to publicly update or revise its financial outlook. Investors are reminded that actual results may differ from these estimates for the reasons described below and in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Company’s projected net (loss) income in 2012 and 2013 does not reflect any foreign exchange gains or losses. The 2012 and 2013 earnings outlook also does not take into account the potential impact of any future acquisitions or divestitures, including potential non-recurring acquisition related expenses or asset impairments. The outlook also does not take into account the effect of a public offering or other financing arrangement or debt restructuring that could impact outstanding shares and thereby the Company’s EPS outlook.
The Company is presenting projected net income (loss) for both 2012 (third quarter and full year) and 2013 without the impact of those items because it is currently unable to estimate the amount of those items and it believes that presenting net loss/income without taking them into account presents investors with meaningful information about the Company’s projected operating performance for 2012 and 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the financial measures presented in EnerNOC’s press release and related conference call or webcast in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), EnerNOC also presents non-GAAP financial measures relating to non-GAAP net income or loss, non-GAAP net income or loss per share, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow.
A “non-GAAP financial measure” refers to a numerical measure of the Company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that excludes (or includes) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Company’s financial statements. EnerNOC provides the non-GAAP measures listed above as additional information relating to EnerNOC’s operating results as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial information presented here should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for or superior to, the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered measures of the Company’s liquidity. There are significant limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Further, these measures may differ from the non-GAAP information, even where similarly titled, used by other companies and therefore should not be used to compare the Company’s performance to that of other companies.
The non-GAAP measures used in this press release and related conference call or webcast differ from GAAP in that they exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation, amortization expense related to acquisition-related intangible assets, as well as in certain measures, the related impact of these adjustments on the provision for income taxes. In addition, investors should note the following:
• EnerNOC defines “non-GAAP net income (loss)” as net income (loss) before expenses related to stock-based compensation and amortization expenses related to acquisition-related intangible assets, net of related tax effects.
• EnerNOC defines “Adjusted EBITDA” as net income (loss), excluding depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, interest, income taxes and other income (expense). Adjusted EBITDA eliminates items that are either not part of the Company’s core operations or do not require a cash outlay, such as stock-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes depreciation and amortization expense, which is based on the Company’s estimate of the useful life of tangible and intangible assets. These estimates could vary from actual performance of the asset, are based on historic cost incurred to build out the Company’s deployed network, and may not be indicative of current or future capital expenditures.
• EnerNOC defines “free cash flow” as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures. EnerNOC defines “capital expenditures” as purchases of property and equipment, which includes capitalization of internal-use software development costs.
EnerNOC’s management uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating the Company’s operating performance and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. EnerNOC’s management believes that such measures help indicate underlying trends in the Company’s business, are important in comparing current results with prior period results, and are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing the Company’s operating performance. For example, EnerNOC’s management considers non-GAAP net income or loss to be an important indicator of the overall performance of the Company because it eliminates certain of the more significant effects of its acquisitions and related activities and non-cash compensation expenses. In addition, EnerNOC’s management considers adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of the Company’s operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of the Company’s historical operating trend. Moreover, EnerNOC’s management considers free cash flow to be an indicator of the Company’s operating trend and performance of its business.
