Gruenwald, September 30, 2022 – Today, Tion Renewables AG (currently being renamed from Pacifico Renewables Yield AG) published its interim report and looks back on a strong first half of 2022. Revenues increased by 182% to €17.8 million (2021H1: €6.3 million). The positive half-year result generated earnings per share of €0.03.
In addition to elevated electricity prices and the group’s electricity production having been largely on schedule in the first half of 2022, the strong portfolio growth in the previous year was the main contributor to the revenue growth. In 2021, the company grew its portfolio by nearly 100 MW through five acquisitions of three solar and two wind projects in three different countries. Most of the newly acquired solar and wind farms generated electricity in the first half of 2022, directly translating significant portfolio growth into revenue growth. The group’s electricity production in the first half of the year reached 168.1 GWh (2021H1: 50.8 GWh). Financial discipline and continuous portfolio optimization remain the basis for Tion’s profitability.
However, Dr. Martin Siddiqui, Co-CEO, does not see only revenue growth and profitability as the focus in the first half of 2022: “With our first green loan of €35 million and the signing of 15-year long-term power purchase agreements (PPA) for our Polish wind portfolio, occurred after the end of the reporting period, we have been able to create a lot of value through portfolio optimization. Additionally, by initiating a portfolio rotation, we have ensured the most efficient use of our equity. Thereby, we position the company to be more profitable also on the long term in regard to further investment opportunities within the energy transition space and global developments. We are convinced that this year we could not have positioned ourselvese strategically better for the long term in the current market environment than with our focus on portfolio optimization, portfolio rotation and strategic development.”
Revenue growth, consistent margins and profitability in the first half of 2022
The group’s strong revenue growth is combined with a positive consolidated result, attractive cash flows from operating activities and stable margins:
- Adjusted operating EBITDA of €14.2 million (2021H1: €5.0 million) at a margin of 79% (2021H1: 79%)
- Adjusted operating EBIT of €7.5 million (2021H1: €1.0 million) at a margin of 40%
- Cash flows from operating activities of €12.1 million (2021H1: €4.1 million)
- Half-year result reports a profit of € 128.2k (2021H1: € -769.9k)
- EPS of € 0.03 (2021H1: € -0.23)
The revenues of the Czech solar park portfolio disposed in July 2022 were taken into account until then, however, from an accounting perspective are considered a discontinued operation. Thus, the segment’s result is reported in a separate line item in the profit and loss statement. Under consideration of the discontinued segment Czech Republic, revenues of €21.2 million were generated in the first half of 2022.
Revenue guidance for the full year 2022 confirmed
The management continues to expect revenues of €30.0 million to €40.00 million for the financial year 2022 and thus confirms its existing revenue guidance.
