Earnings Highlights and Summary
For its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017, Ideal Power's product revenue totaled $0.2 million versus $0.4 million in Q4 2016. The Company's reported numbers lagged behind analysts' estimates of $710.00 million.
Ideal Power's product revenue decreased 26% to $1.2 million in FY17 compared to product revenue of $1.6 million in FY16. The decline in quarterly and yearly revenue was due to lower selling prices for both the Stability and SunDial, Ideal Power's third generation 30 kilowatt products relative to the selling prices of the Company's legacy products.
During Q4 2017, Ideal Power's gross margins were negative 46% compared to negative 10% gross margins in Q4 2016. The compared gross margins were negatively impacted by asset impairments and warranty reserve adjustments related to the Company's discontinued first generation 30kW and 125kW products. Excluding these warranty reserve adjustment gross margins were 26% in the reported quarter as reduced manufacturing overhead and product costs.
During Q4 2017, Ideal Power's research and development (R&D) expenses decreased 38% to 0.8 million from $1.3 million in Q4 2016. The decrease was due primarily to lower personnel cost in connection with the Company's cost reduction activities and lower B-TRAN staff spending as Ideal Power focused its spend on the development of prototype standard rather than full featured B-TRAN's.
For Q4 2017, Ideal Power's net loss was $1.84 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in Q4 2016. The Company's reported numbers were better than Wall Street's expectations for a loss of $0.17 per share.
For FY17, Ideal Power's net loss was $10.34 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $10.98 million, or $1.15 per diluted share, in FY16.
During Q4 2017, Ideal Power's cash used in operating and investing activities was $1.7 million compared to $2.6 million in Q4 2016. The Company's cash used in operating and investing activities was $7.8 million compared to $10.8 million in FY16.
As of December 31, 2017, Ideal Power's cash and cash equivalents totaled $10.0 million, with no long-term debt outstanding.
