17.5.2005: Meldung: Worldwater & Power Corp.: 1st Quarter Results
PENNINGTON, N.J., May 16, 2005 -- WorldWater & Power Corp. (OTCBB:WWAT), maker of proprietary solar power systems, announced it is filing today its 10Q for the first quarter of 2005. "The first quarter results will show no equipment sales revenues and a net loss of $1,344,729, but it was nonetheless a very productive quarter with the signing of two additional contracts, bringing our backlog of signed contracts to $4.4 million as of the end of the quarter," explained Quentin T. Kelly, Chairman and CEO.
Comparative first quarter 2004 results showed combined equipment and grant revenues of $780,846 and a net loss of $1,667,220. "Because of the nature of our business, quarterly comparisons are not reflective of our year-to-year progress. A more accurate reflection is a comparison of 2004 annual revenues of $5.8 million to our backlog of three signed contracts, totaling $4.4 million as of March 31, 2005," Mr. Kelly said. "We did not expect revenue for the first quarter, but we initiated projects which should be completed and recognized in the remaining quarters of 2005."
The company started construction on two projects in April valued at $2.6 million and expects to begin construction on the third contract valued at $1.8 million by the end of the second quarter. The first two contracts are for supplying solar power to water districts in California (Idyllwild Water District) and New Jersey (Atlantic County Utility Authority). The third contract calls for the supply of solar pumping and electric power to the Cocopah Tree Farm in California.
