"2010 marked a record year for Satcon with quarter-end and full-year sales meeting our top-line guidance, and each growing over three times the amount of sales we reported in the same periods a year ago," said Steve Rhoades, Satcon's President and Chief Executive Officer. "In addition to achieving our revenue targets, we improved gross margin in each quarter, and posted an operating profit for the last two consecutive quarters of the year - both milestone achievements for the company."

For the full year of 2010, the company shipped 688 MW of its industry-leading PowerGate(R) Plus, Prism(R), and Solstice(R) solutions. Satcon's 500kW PowerGate Plus solution continued to be its strongest performing product, shipping over 472 MW during the year, and representing a 293% growth over the number of 500kW PowerGate Plus units shipped in the full year of 2009.

Bookings for the full year 2010 totaled $288.6 million, an increase of 454% over 2009. This represents 1.1 GW of orders for Satcon's solutions, with 57% of that demand coming from North America, 26% from Europe and 17% from Asia Pacific. For the fourth quarter of 2010, bookings totaled $89.1 million, an increase of 420% over the same period last year, and 16.1% growth over Q3 of 2010.

At December 31, 2010, the company's backlog, which consists of purchase orders with customers, was $102.8 million. Backlog from North America represented 78% of orders to be delivered. Asia contributed 17%, while Europe contributed 5%.

"We continue to see significant ongoing market opportunity presented to us by the breadth and reputation of our utility scale solutions, with additional revenue potential coming from design, configuration, and other after-market programs that we have introduced and that are in our pipeline," said Rhoades. "Looking at the first half of 2011, we expect to see some seasonal effect coming from the European region and the North American commercial rooftop business. However, we expect this slowdown to be offset by strong sales into the North American utility-scale market, and orders from our Chinese partnerships."

"With a mix shift of sales from Europe to Asia, where ASP's tend to trend lower, coupled with a higher proportion of our sales coming from our newest technology, including the Solstice 500kW solution, which is not yet fully transferred to our high volume Asian manufacturing facility and Asian sources, we expect Q1 revenues to be in the range of $65 to $70 million with our gross margin between 25% to 27%," continued Rhoades. "As we look out to Q2, we expect a significant increase in volume from Europe and North America, and increased gross margin on improvements in our supply chain and greater utilization of our Asian manufacturing facilities. We expect to continue our run of operating profitability throughout the year."
