  • Operating loss was $28.6 million in fiscal year 2022, down from to $41.5 million in fiscal year 2021
  • Net loss attributable to shareholders of SPI was $33.4 million, or $1.30 per basic and diluted share, in fiscal year 2022, down from $45.5 million, or $1.90 per basic and diluted share, in fiscal year 2021

“We continued our trajectory of strong growth in 2022, exceeding our previously issued revenue guidance,” said Xiaofeng Denton Peng, Chairman and CEO of SPI Energy. “Our solar module and solar wafer manufacturing businesses are expected to be strong growth drivers in the quarters ahead. And importantly, with the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, which creates attractive incentives for companies to produce solar modules in the US, our manufacturing division in California will now receive $0.07 per watt of solar modules produced. Overall, the strong foundation we have established in key areas of the renewables sector, including American solar manufacturing, battery storage, and electric vehicles, have positioned us extremely well to capitalize on a wealth of opportunities to expand our project pipelines, grow consistent cash flows from our operating assets, and increase our gross margin and profitability in the years ahead.”

“With near-term expectations for an EBITDA positive and net profitable, we are confident we will deliver between $29 million and $36 million net income for fiscal year 2023,” continued Peng. “This is a monumental milestone for SPI made possible by years of hard work from our teams who have been instrumental in helping to build our renewable energy company platform. This achievement is even more significant when considering our continued investments in our EV and solar wafer manufacturing businesses, which are expected to further accelerate our overall growth in the quarters ahead as we strive to meet rapidly growing demand.”
