American DG Energy Reports 2016 Financial Performance
Site improvements result in increase of Adjusted EBITDA to a positive position for the year

WALTHAM, Mass., March 21, 2017 /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 $6,141,749 for 2016, compared to $6,358,196 for 2015. GAAP diluted loss per share (EPS) was $0.01 for 2016, compared with a GAAP diluted loss per share of $0.11 for 2015. Reflecting the Company's ongoing efforts to optimize its On-Site Utility production, gross margin excluding depreciation and site impairments improved in 2016 to 39.9% versus 36.1% in 2015, a 3.8 percentage point increase and a 10.5% improvement in gross margin.

Chief Financial Officer Bonnie Brown observed, "In the past year we worked hard to set American DG on the path toward financial stability.  The elimination of our substantial debt and the sale of the majority of our interest in EuroSite Power freed the company to focus resources on improving the core U.S. business. This renewed focus is evident in the substantial improvement in results."

Beginning in 2015 and continuing into 2016, the Company has been 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. The results of this Initiative are producing a foundation of high performing assets that may be used to fund future growth.

Speaking about the company's performance, Co-Chief Executive Officer Benjamin Locke noted, "The Company's improved balance sheet and fleet operating metrics combine to make American DG Energy an attractive asset - the value of which was realized in the proposed acquisition by Tecogen Inc. Pending regulatory and shareholder approval, we look forward to combining forces to create the leading vertically integrated cogeneration company in the U.S. later this year."

Major Highlights:

Consolidated Financial Results

  • On November 1, 2016, the Company's Board of Directors approved a definitive agreement whereby Tecogen Inc would acquire all of the outstanding shares of American DG in a stock-for-stock merger. Under the agreement, each share of American DG common stock will be exchanged for 0.092 shares of Tecogen common stock, valuing American DG at an approximately 27% premium to the Company's closing share price on that day. This agreement is subject to a vote of security holders of both companies. The transaction is also subject to other customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the first half of 2017.
  • Through a series of transactions the Company has removed its $19.4 million in convertible debentures using a combination of EuroSite Power common stock and approximately $3 million in cash to repay this debt in full.
  • As a result of the convertible debenture transactions, as of June 30, 2016 the Company no longer consolidates with EuroSite Power and has presented its former subsidiary as discontinued operations in the accompanying financial statements.
  • Also, as a result of the payoff of convertible debentures, the Company borrowed $850,000 from its Co-CEO, John Hatsopoulos. This loan carries 6% interest and matures on May 25, 2018.
  • As a result of our focused efforts to improve fleet operations, adjusted EBITDA cash flows improved by $941,000, reaching positive cash inflows of $118,105 in 2016, versus outflows of $822,895 for 2015.
  • As a result of our efforts to improve operations and efficiencies, general and administrative expenses have decreased to $1,878,008 for 2016 versus $1,937,299 for 2015, a 3.1% improvement. General and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2016 included approximately $270,000 of one-time expenses incurred in connection with the proposed merger with Tecogen.
  • Overall operating expenses improved 24.1% generating an expense reduction of $817,669.
  • Adjusted gross margin excluding depreciation expense improved by 5.3%, reaching 31.7% for 2016 versus 26.4% for the same period in 2015. Gross margin for the full year 2016 was 2.1% compared with the (0.8)% gross margin reported in 2015, reflecting the benefit from site improvements and reduction 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 level, decreasing by only $216,447, or 3.4%.

Operations

  • As the operations team has been focused on metering for demand capture since March 2016, our demand revenue captured for the year of 2016 was approximately $279,000 compared to $104,000 for 2015, an increase of 168%.
  • Through improved operations, fuel costs were reduced by 4%, thus improving gross profit.
  • Revenue for the year was attributable to the following core markets:
