Revenues for the second quarter of 2011 were $19.2 million, an increase of 20% from the same year-ago quarter and an increase of 11% from the first quarter of 2011. For the six months ended June 30, 2011, total revenues of $36.5 million increased 35% from $27.2 million in the same period in 2010.

Gross profit margin for the quarter decreased to 24%, compared to 27% in the same year-ago quarter and 27% in the previous quarter due to changes in sales mix.

Net loss for the quarter was $1.4 million, or $(0.02) per share.

Management Commentary

"As the second highest revenue quarter in company history, the second quarter of 2011 demonstrated the performance and economic benefits of our products and solutions – from industry-leading energy and space efficiencies to high reliability – continue to resonate with datacenter and technology centric customers worldwide," said Jim Clishem, president and CEO of Active Power.

"We realized a greater proportion of infrastructure solutions sales globally this quarter, including a number of large transactions in Asia. This change in product mix and some larger support costs for certain continuous power system deployments resulted in lower gross and operating margins. We see strong growth in our UPS and solutions business in the second half of 2011 and expect our margins to improve to enable us to reach profitability."

"At the end of June, we had a number of large orders in progress and scheduled for second half delivery, which in turn resulted in a large increase in inventory and payables. We also made certain investments in research and development and added personnel to meet the increased demand in our sales pipeline. While these factors impacted the quarter''s profitability, we believe these investments will enable us to continue to grow the business and meet our financial and strategic objectives."

Outlook

Active Power expects third quarter 2011 revenues to be between $18 million and $21 million. Third quarter earnings per share is expected to range between $(0.02) and $0.02 cents per share. Changes in cash and investments are expected to be driven by changes in working capital requirements.
