Capstone Regains Compliance with NASDAQ Minimum Bid Price Listing Rule
Anticipates Near-Term Facility Consolidation Completion - Enabling Future Reductions in Operating Expenses
CHATSWORTH, Calif. -- Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (NASDAQ:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market stating that the company had regained compliance with The NASDAQ Stock Market’s minimum bid price listing requirement, Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) and this matter is now closed. The letter comes as a result of Capstone’s share price being at or above $1.00 per share for the last 10 consecutive business days from October 12 to 25, 2017.
“We are happy to have regained compliance with NASDAQ’s minimum bid price listing requirement,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Turbine. “We understand how important it is for our customers, company and shareholders to retain our status on the NASDAQ and it is an important element of our ongoing efforts to improve shareholder value,” added Mr. Jamison.
Capstone is also announcing that another key element of their multi-point strategic plan to achieve Adjusted EBITDA breakeven is the consolidation of its two manufacturing facilities into a single manufacturing facility is on schedule to be completed by November 15, 2017. The Van Nuys, California location will also serve as its corporate headquarters.
“The consolidation of our two facilities, which started this summer has already started to improve and streamline our manufacturing process and will continue to improve efficiency for all operations moving forward,” said Kirk Petty, Vice President of Manufacturing of Capstone Turbine.
“Consolidating into a single facility, while still producing our world-class products, enables us to sublease our Chatsworth facility sooner without business interruption. Once a sublease is in place, it will further reduce our operating expenses which is a key part of our multi-point strategic path towards achieving Adjusted EBITDA breakeven in the near term,” said Jayme Brooks, Capstone’s Chief Financial Officer and Chief Accounting Officer.
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense and the change in warrant valuation. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of our liquidity or financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.
