American DG Energy Reports 2015 Financial Performance
Site improvements result in increase of 16% in total kW production

WALTHAM, Mass., March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- American DG Energy Inc. (NYSE MKT: ADGE, the "Company"), an On-Site Utility provider offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling solutions to hospitality, healthcare, housing and fitness facilities, reported total revenues of $8,556,917 for 2015, compared to $8,567,553 for 2014. GAAP diluted loss per share (EPS) was $0.11 for 2015, compared with a GAAP diluted loss per share of $0.12 for 2014. Reflecting the Company's ongoing efforts to optimize its On-Site Utility production, gross margin excluding depreciation and site impairments improved in 2015 to 33.1% versus 31.0% in 2014, a 2.1% increase and a 6.8% improvement in gross margin.

Chief Financial Officer Bonnie Brown observed, "2015 was about stabilizing our installed base of assets and executing on cost saving initiatives. Delivering stable revenue year-on-year while generating over 200 basis points of adjusted gross margin improvement despite the divesting of eleven sites is a validation of both our expense reduction efforts and careful investment of shareholder capital."

In 2015, the Company began executing an initiative (the "Initiative") to more effectively invest its capital behind improving the performance of its existing installed base of assets. The goal of the Initiative is to make strategic capital improvements aimed at increasing productivity of the existing portfolio while optimizing the Company's margins and increasing cash flow; this should produce a foundation of high performing assets that may be used to fund future growth.

Speaking about the Initiative, co-Chief Executive Officer Benjamin Locke noted, "To date, approximately half of the installed base has been addressed and we expect to complete assessment and improvement initiatives at other select installations this year. We are already seeing significant progress in operating results and profitability from sites subjected to our Initiative and are hopeful we will continue to see strong returns on invested capital as other sites are upgraded."

Major Highlights:

Consolidated Financial Results

  • As a result of our focused efforts to improve fleet operations consolidated EBITDA cash outflows improved by $865,148, reaching $1,148,077 in 2015, versus outflows of $2,013,225 for 2014.
  • As a result of our efforts to improve operations and efficiencies, general and administrative expenses have decreased to $2,821,321 for 2015 versus $3,238,141 for 2014, a 12.9% improvement. Overall operating expenses improved 4.1% generating an expense reduction of $215,789.
  • Adjusted gross margin excluding depreciation and site impairment expense improved by 2.1%, hitting 33.1% for 2015 versus 31.0% for the same period in 2014. Gross margin for the full year 2015 was a loss of 2.0% compared with a profit of 1.0% in 2014, reflecting the adverse impact of increased site impairment and depreciation expense which was only partially offset by reductions in fuel, maintenance and installation related expense.
  • While eleven sites were removed from our fleet as a result of the reorganization with ADGNY, LLC., our revenues remained relatively constant, decreasing by only $10,636, or 0.1%.
  • EuroSite Power Inc. subsidiary success:
    • Total revenue value of all contracted EuroSite Power On-Site Utility energy agreements as of December 31, 2015 was approximately $101.1 million using various market assumptions and estimates made by management, compared to $96.6 million at year end 2014. When including agreements signed to date during 2016, total contracted value currently stands at approximately $105.95 million for 4,098 kW in total capacity.
    • During the first quarter of 2016, our subsidiary, EuroSite Power, executed two project financing agreements with Societe Generale and Macquarie. These agreements eliminate capital constraints on projects; any project which meets the company's return hurdles may now be pursued.
    • EuroSite Power, received $648,917 in Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) payments from the UK government during the year for activities undertaken in 2014. We also filed for $358,780 in ECA payments related to 2015 activities and received this allowance in Q1 2016. The ECA program is a cash energy tax incentive for energy-saving plant and machinery, which includes combined heat and power systems.

Operations

  • During 2015, based on our Initiative, we focused the majority of our efforts on four cornerstone sites who make up 37% of the fleet. Overall we increased production by 32% and reduced routine maintenance costs at these sites.
  • We realized a substantial increase in production of 16%, measured in kWh, from our fleet as a result of our Initiative.
  • Revenue for the year was attributable to the following core markets:
