20:00 EDT 5 Aug 2015 | Globe Newswire

  • Generated Cash Available for Distribution ("CAFD") of $65 million in Q2
  • Declares increased Q2 dividend of $0.335 per share ($1.34 annualized)
  • Strong operational performance supported by diversity of 1.9 GW generation fleet
  • Executed 146 MW of contracted solar power plant drop downs from SunEdison in Q2
  • Reaffirms full year 2015 and 2016 dividend guidance of $1.35 and $1.75 per share

BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TerraForm Power, Inc. (Nasdaq:TERP), a global owner and operator of clean energy power plants, today reported second quarter 2015 financial results, including CAFD of $65 million for the quarter.

"We are pleased to announce strong Q2 results while reaffirming our full year CAFD and dividend guidance," said Carlos Domenech, Chief Executive Officer. "Our results were underpinned by the strong operational performance of our contracted generation fleet and execution of drop downs from SunEdison during the quarter. TerraForm Power's 1.9 GW portfolio benefits from significant scale and diversity of generation resources, geographies, and customer sites. Our execution continues to deliver CAFD and dividend growth to our shareholders."

Q2 Financial Results

TerraForm Power reported adjusted revenue of $132 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $108 million, and CAFD of $65 million in the second quarter. Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA reflect recognition of partial economic ownership during the period for the acquisitions of the Integrys, Duke, Invenergy Solar, and Moose Power portfolios, which were completed during Q2. Pro forma for a full quarter of economic ownership, revenue and Adjusted EBITDA would have been $139 million and $114 million, respectively.

Q2 Dividend Increase

TerraForm Power today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a second quarter dividend for TerraForm Power's Class A common stock of $0.335 per share, or $1.34 per share on an annualized basis. This represents a 3% increase from the first quarter 2015 dividend of $0.325 per share, or $1.30 per share on an annualized basis. Additionally, this represents a 48% increase from TerraForm Power's initial IPO dividend one year ago. The Q2 dividend is payable on September 15, 2015 to shareholders of record as of September 1, 2015.

Q2 Drop Downs from SunEdison

During the second quarter, TerraForm Power acquired 146 MW of contracted solar power plants from SunEdison, located in the United States and United Kingdom. All of these power plants were on TerraForm Power's call right list, which is comprised of SunEdison projects which TerraForm Power has the exclusive right to purchase upon reaching commercial operation.

The acquired drop down portfolio is fully contracted with a weighted average contract life of 18.5 years, and an average off-taker credit rating of A-. The drop down portfolio includes US distributed generation power plants representing 37 MW, US utility-scale plants representing 47 MW, and utility-scale plants in the UK comprising 62 MW. The plants are expected to contribute $12 million in CAFD in 2015, and generate an average annualized unlevered CAFD of $21 million over the next ten years, representing a levered cash-on-cash return of 9.5%.

Liquidity for Growth

As of August 5, 2015, TerraForm Power had total liquidity of $1.3 billion, including unrestricted cash on hand of $665 million and a fully undrawn 5-year revolving credit facility. TerraForm Power received a commitment to increase the size of its revolving credit facility by $75 million, from $650 million to $725 million. Additionally, the Company amended the maximum permitted size of its revolving credit facility to $1.0 billion, commensurate with the growth in the Company's asset base and cash flows.

"With the support of our bank group, we continue to execute on our strategy of capitalizing TerraForm Power with ample liquidity for growth and conservative leverage," said Alex Hernandez, TerraForm Power's Chief Financial Officer. "Given our strong liquidity position, we believe TerraForm Power has sufficient capital on hand to deliver our 2015 and 2016 DPS guidance on the basis of our expected CAFD run rate."

Reaffirming 2015 and 2016 Full Year Guidance

TerraForm Power reaffirms its 2015 CAFD guidance of $225 million and DPS guidance of $1.35. The Company also reaffirms its 2016 dividend guidance of $1.75 per share.

Cash Available for Distribution (CAFD)

CAFD is a supplemental non-GAAP measure of TerraForm Power's ability to earn and distribute cash to investors. This measurement is not recognized in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance, including net income, net cash provided by (used in) operating activities or any other liquidity measure determined in accordance with GAAP, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure which eliminates the impact on net income of certain unusual or non-recurring items and other factors that we do not consider indicative of future operating performance. This measurement is not recognized in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance, including net income. The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because securities analysts and other interested parties use such calculations as a measure of financial performance and debt service capabilities. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is used by our management for internal planning purposes, including for certain aspects of our consolidated operating budget.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, net; income taxes; depreciation, accretion and amortization; stock-based compensation; and certain other non-cash charges, unusual or non-recurring items and other items that we believe are not representative of our core business or future operating performance. Our definitions and calculations of these items may not necessarily be the same as those used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of liquidity or profitability and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The following table presents a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA:

 ___________        
(a)  In connection with the amended Interest Payment Agreement between SunEdison and the Company, SunEdison will pay a portion of each scheduled interest payment on the Senior Notes due 2023, beginning with the first scheduled interest payment on August 1, 2015 and continuing through the scheduled interest payment on August 1, 2017, up to a maximum aggregate amount of $48.0 million, taking into account amounts paid under the original Interest Payment Agreement since the completion of our IPO. The Company did not receive an equity contribution during the three months ended June 30, 2015. During the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company received an equity contribution of $4.0 million from SunEdison pursuant to the original Interest Payment Agreement. 
(b)  Includes $5.4 million and $5.0 million of net amortization of intangible assets related to above market rate and below market rate energy revenue contracts included within operating revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, and $0.8 million for both of the prior year comparative periods.
(c)  Represents the non-cash allocation of SunEdison's corporate overhead. In conjunction with the closing of the IPO on July 23, 2014, we entered into the Management Services Agreement ("MSA") with SunEdison, pursuant to which SunEdison provides or arranges for other service providers to provide management and administrative services to us. Cash consideration paid to SunEdison for these services for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 totaled $1.3 million and $2.0 million, respectively. The cash fees payable to SunEdison will be capped at $4.0 million in 2015, $7.0 million in 2016, and $9.0 million in 2017. The amount of general and administrative expenses in excess of the fees paid to SunEdison in each year will be treated as an addback in the reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA.
(d)  Represents transaction related costs, including affiliate acquisition costs, associated with the acquisitions completed during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014. There were no affiliate acquisition costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.
(e)  Represents non-recurring professional fees for legal, tax and accounting services incurred in connection with the IPO.
(f)  Represents the change in the fair value of commodity contracts not designated as hedges.
(g)  We recognized a net gain on extinguishment of debt of $11.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 due to the termination of financing lease obligations upon SunEdison acquiring the lessor interest in the Duke Energy operating facility and concurrently transferring the portfolio to the Company. We recognized a net loss on extinguishment of debt of $8.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 due primarily to the termination of the Term Loan and its related interest rate swap, the exchange of the previous revolver to the Revolver and prepayment of premium paid in conjunction with the payoff of First Wind indebtedness at the acquisition date, partially offset by the gain due to the termination of financing lease obligations upon SunEdison acquiring the lessor interest in the Duke Energy operating facility and concurrently transferring the portfolio to the Company. Net loss on extinguishment of debt was $1.9 million for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, due primarily to the termination of capital lease obligations upon acquiring the lessor interest in the Alamosa project solar generation facility.
(h)  Represents non-recurring plant-level professional fees attributable to tax equity transactions entered into during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015. 
(i)  We incurred a net gain on foreign currency exchange of $14.4 million and $0.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, due primarily to an unrealized gain on the remeasurement of intercompany loans which are denominated in British pounds. Net loss on foreign currency exchange was $0.1 million and $0.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, due primarily to unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

(a)  Includes $12 million of corporate interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and paid on August 3, 2015 to align with project economics.
(b)  Represents the non-cash allocation of SunEdison's corporate overhead. In conjunction with the closing of the IPO on July 23, 2014, we entered into the MSA with SunEdison, pursuant to which SunEdison provides or arranges for other service providers to provide management and administrative services to us. Cash consideration paid to SunEdison for these services for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 totaled $1.3 million and $2.0 million, respectively. The cash fees payable to SunEdison will be capped at $4.0 million in 2015, $7.0 million in 2016, and $9.0 million in 2017. The amount of general and administrative expenses in excess of the fees paid to SunEdison in each year will be treated as an addback in the reconciliation of net cash used in operating activities to estimated cash available for distribution.
(c)  Represents economic ownership of certain acquired operating assets which accrued to TerraForm Power prior to the acquisition close date.

We define "cash available for distribution" or "CAFD" as net cash provided by operating activities of Terra LLC as adjusted for certain other cash flow items that we associate with our operations. It is a non-GAAP measure of our ability to generate cash to service our dividends. As used in this news release, cash available for distribution represents net cash provided by (used in) operating activities of Terra LLC (i) plus or minus changes in assets and liabilities as reflected on our statements of cash flows, (ii) minus deposits into (or plus withdrawals from) restricted cash accounts required by project financing arrangements to the extent they decrease (or increase) cash provided by operating activities, (iii) minus cash distributions paid to non-controlling interests in our projects, if any, (iv) minus scheduled project-level and other debt service payments and repayments in accordance with the related borrowing arrangements, to the extent they are paid from operating cash flows during a period, (v) minus non-expansionary capital expenditures, if any, to the extent they are paid from operating cash flows during a period, (vi) plus cash contributions from SunEdison pursuant to the Interest Payment Agreement, (vii) plus operating costs and expenses paid by SunEdison pursuant to the Management Services Agreement to the extent such costs or expenses exceed the fee payable by us pursuant to such agreement but otherwise reduce our net cash provided by operating activities and (viii) plus or minus operating items as necessary to present the cash flows we deem representative of our core business operations, with the approval of the audit committee. Our intention is to cause Terra LLC to distribute a portion of the cash available for distribution generated by our project portfolio to its members each quarter, after appropriate reserves for our working capital needs and the prudent conduct of our business.

Reconciliation of Revenue to Adjusted Revenue

Adjusted Revenue

We believe Adjusted Revenue is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because securities analysts and other interested parties use such calculations as a measure of financial performance. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is used by our management for internal planning purposes, including for certain aspects of our consolidating operating budget.

The following table presents a reconciliation of Revenue to Adjusted Revenue:
