14.6.2007: Meldung: Capstone Announces Fiscal 2007 Operating Results

Capstone Turbine Corporation, reported operating results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2007 in its Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 13, 2007.

Financial Summary

Capstone"s revenue for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007 was $21.0 million, a decrease of approximately 13% from the prior fiscal year. While sales are not increasing as we expected, we continue to pursue market penetration through the use of worldwide distributors and our direct sales resources.

The reported gross loss for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007 was $5.0 million, or 24% of revenue, an improvement of approximately 19 points over the prior fiscal year.

The year over year improvement in the gross loss percentage reflects the increased contribution margins from improved product mix as a result of increased sales of higher margin C60 Series units, reduced manufacturing costs, higher absorption of overhead costs into ending inventory and reduced inventory charges offset by increased warranty charges.

Research and development costs were $9.4 million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007, a decrease of $1.6 million, or 15% from the prior fiscal year. Expenses were lower primarily due to lower labor and consulting spending, decreased development hardware and supplies, and reduced facilities expenses offset by decreased funding received from cost sharing programs.

Selling, general and administrative costs were $24.6 million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007, a decrease of $3.1 million, or 11% from the prior fiscal year. Included in SG&A expenses for the year ended March 31, 2007 was $2.3 million of non-cash stock compensation, compared to $1.0 million for the same period last year. This increase is a result of the Company"s adoption of SFAS 123® during the first quarter of Fiscal 2007. Other SG&A expenses decreased $4.5 million compared to the prior year. The decrease was primarily attributable to legal settlement costs incurred in the prior year, reduced professional services including legal, accounting and insurance, lower labor and related costs, consulting fees and marketing costs, offset by increased bad debt and facilities costs.

Capstone"s net loss was $36.7 million, or $0.32 per share, for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007, a decrease of $10.3 million from the $47.1 million loss, or $0.50 per share, reported for the prior fiscal year.

Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007 were $60.3 million. Cash balances increased by $2.3 million during the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007. The Company completed a registered offering of its common stock during the fourth quarter, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $42.5 million.

Backlog at the end of the fiscal year was $5.0 million, a decrease of over 29% from the prior fiscal year end, and approximately 38% from the prior quarter.

Revenue for the fourth quarter ended March 31, 2007 increased to $5.8 million, an improvement of 1% from the third quarter, and decreased approximately 23% from the prior year comparable quarter.

The reported gross loss for the 2007 fourth quarter was $1.0 million, or 17% of revenue compared to $3.2 million, or 43% for the 2006 fourth quarter, an improvement of approximately 26 points.

The quarter over quarter improvement in the gross loss percentage reflects the increased contribution margins from improved product mix as a result of increased sales of higher margin C60 Series units, reduced manufacturing costs, higher absorption of overhead costs into ending inventory and reduced inventory charges offset by increased warranty charges.

Research and development costs were $2.0 million for the fourth quarter, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 37%, from the prior year comparable quarter. Expenses were lower primarily due to lower labor and consulting spending, decreased development hardware and supplies, and reduced facilities expenses offset by decreased funding received from cost sharing programs.

Selling, general and administrative costs were $6.3 million for the fourth quarter, an increase of $0.1 million, or 2% from the prior year comparable quarter. Included in SG&A expenses for the fourth quarter was $0.6 million of non-cash stock compensation, compared to $0.2 million for the same period last year. This increase is a result of the Company"s adoption of SFAS 123® during the first quarter of Fiscal 2007. Other SG&A expenses decreased $0.3 million compared to the same period last year. The decrease was primarily attributable to reduced labor and related costs and marketing costs, offset by increased bad debt and facilities costs.

Capstone"s net loss was $8.5 million for the fourth quarter, or $0.06 per share, an improvement of $3.3 million from the $11.8 million loss, or $0.12 per share, reported for the prior year comparable quarter.
