NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Genie Energy Ltd. (NYSE: GNE, GNEPRA) reported third quarter 2020 earnings of $0.24 per diluted share on revenue of $96.3 million

Genie Energy is a leading provider of electricity and natural gas to homes and small businesses in the Eastern U.S. Genie also operates an E&P company with an active exploratory program in Northern Israel.

HIGHLIGHTS
(Throughout this release, 3Q20 results are compared to 3Q19 results unless otherwise noted)

  • By quarter end, Genie had expanded its global customer base to the highest level in company history. Global RCEs rose to 442,000 and global meters to 558,000, representing year over year increases of 15% and 13% respectively.   
  • Consolidated revenue increased 12.4% to $96.3 million driven by increases in average electricity consumption in the U.S. and internationally. Gross profit increased 3.7% to $27.3 million while SG&A expense decreased 3.0% to $18.8 million on reduced customer acquisition expense.
  • Consolidated income from operations increased 22.2% to $8.5 million. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA1 increased 18.6% to $9.5 million.
  • Genie Retail Energy, Genie's domestic energy supply business, increased income from operations to $12.3 million from $10.9 million and Adjusted EBITDA1 to $12.6 million from $11.2 million.
  • Diluted EPS increased to $0.24 from $0.18.

COMMENTS OF MICHAEL STEIN, CEO
"Our strong third quarter results reflect our long-term investments in customer base growth and geographic diversification. International meter acquisitions led the expansion of our global customer base to its highest level in our history.

"In the U.S., our year over year increases in revenue, gross profit and income from operations were driven by increased average per meter electricity consumption. Residential electricity demand in the U.S. has increased in the COVID-19 era while churn and the pace of meter acquisition have slowed.

"After the third quarter closed, we acquired our partner's interest in our U.K. joint venture for $1.7 million. We are excited about the long-term prospects for this business and expect it to become EBITDA accretive within the next two years.

"Our bottom line results further strengthened our balance sheet this quarter even as we continued to invest to grow our international businesses. By the quarter close, we had achieved our highest levels of cash and working capital since 2016."

GLOBAL METERS AND RCEs

Genie Energy's global customer base increased year-over-year and sequentially driven by Genie International's investment in customer acquisition complemented by more modest domestic RCE growth. COVID-19 public health restrictions relaxed in some Genie domestic markets in the third quarter, facilitating a partial reactivation of previously curtailed customer acquisition channels.  Genie Energy's global RCE and meter totals are provided in the chart below.

GRE - KPIs and Take-Aways:

  • RCEs served at September 30, 2020 increased 6% to 350,000 from 329,000 a year earlier and 2% from 343,000 at June 30, 2020.
  • Meters served at September 30, 2020 decreased 4% to 375,000 from 389,000 a year earlier and increased slightly from 374,000 at June 30, 2020. 
  • Gross meters added during 3Q20 totaled 44,000 compared to 76,000 in 3Q19 and 40,000 in 2Q20. The year over year decrease is due to COVID-19 related curtailment of certain customer acquisition activities.
  • Average monthly customer churn decreased to 3.7% from 5.3% in 3Q19 and 3.9% in 2Q20, reflecting decreased sales activity by competitors and lower rates of gross meter ads in recent quarters – both as a result of COVID-19-related restrictions on customer acquisition in certain channels – as well as the continuing increase in the ratio of fixed rate to variable rate customers, where fixed rate customers generally have lower rates of churn.
  • The year over year increase in electricity revenue was driven by a strong increase in average meter electricity consumption reflecting increased residential demand during the COVID-19 pandemic, and, to a lesser extent, a shift within GRE's electricity customer base to meters with higher average consumption.
  • The year over year increases in income from operations and Adjusted EBITDA1 were driven by increased per meter electricity consumption and decreased customer acquisition expense, offset by a mild decrease in gross margin.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures for the Third Quarter 2020

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), Genie Energy also disclosed for the third quarter 2020, as well as for comparable periods, pro forma revenue and income (loss) from operations for its Genie Retail Energy International (GRE International) segment and, for on a consolidated basis and for all segments, Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Genie Energy's measures of pro forma results consist of the corresponding GAAP metric with the addition of the corresponding results for Orbit Energy, the company's joint venture operating in the United Kingdom. GAAP results for Orbit Energy are accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Under this method, Genie Energy records its share in the net income or loss of the venture. Therefore, revenue generated, expenses incurred and income (loss) from operations are not reflected in Genie Energy's consolidated revenue and expenses (although Orbit Energy's customers are included in metrics regarding our customer base).  Pro forma results are calculated by adding the result for Orbit Energy to its corresponding GAAP result.  Pro forma results are provided for the third quarter 2020 and third quarter 2019 to supplement the following results: revenue of the Genie Retail Energy International segment; and loss from operations for the Genie Retail Energy International segment.

Genie Energy's measure of Adjusted EBITDA consists of gross profit less selling, general and administrative expense, exploration expense and equity in the net loss of in equity method investees, net, plus depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation (which are included in selling, general and administrative expense). Another way of calculating Adjusted EBITDA is to start with income from operations and add depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and impairment of goodwill and subtract equity in net loss in equity method investees, net.

Management believes that Genie Energy's pro forma results and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of Genie Energy's or the relevant segment's core operating results. Management uses the pro forma results and Adjusted EBITDA, among other measures, as relevant indicators of core operational strengths in its financial and operational decision making.

Pro forma revenue and pro forma income (loss) from operations are used specifically to evaluate the performance of its GRE International division.  Management also used Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate operating performance in relation to Genie Energy's competitors. Disclosure of these non-GAAP financial measure may be useful to investors in evaluating performance and allows for greater transparency to the underlying supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. In addition, Genie Energy has historically reported Adjusted EBITDA and believes it is commonly used by readers of financial information in assessing performance.  Therefore, the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in financial reporting at this time.

The pro forma results facilitate evaluation of the results of GRE International as if the results of its U.K joint venture, Orbit Energy, were fully consolidated, which provides useful information regarding the size, growth and financial performance of GRE International businesses in aggregate.  In contrast, GAAP results only include the company's equity in the results of the operations of its U.K. venture.

Management refers to pro forma results and Adjusted EBITDA, as well as the GAAP measures revenue, gross profit, income (loss) from operations and net income (loss), on a segment and/or consolidated level to facilitate internal and external comparisons to the segments' and Genie Energy's historical operating results, in making operating decisions, for budget and planning purposes, and to form the basis upon which management is compensated.

Although depreciation and amortization are considered operating costs under GAAP, they primarily represent the non-cash current period allocation of costs associated with long-lived assets acquired or constructed in prior periods. While Genie Energy's oil and gas exploration business may be capital intensive, Genie Energy does not expect to incur significant depreciation or depletion expense for the foreseeable future. Genie Energy's operating results exclusive of depreciation and amortization is therefore a useful indicator of its current performance.

Stock-based compensation recognized by Genie Energy and other companies may not be comparable because of the various valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of types of awards that are permitted under GAAP. Stock-based compensation is excluded from Genie Energy's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA because management believes this allows investors to make more meaningful comparisons of the operating results of Genie Energy's core business with the results of other companies. However, stock-based compensation will continue to be a significant expense for Genie Energy for the foreseeable future and an important part of employees' compensation that impacts their performance.

Impairment of goodwill is a component of (loss) income from operations that is excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA. The impairment of goodwill is primarily dictated by events and circumstances outside the control of management that trigger an impairment analysis. While there may be similar charges in other periods, the nature and magnitude of these charges can fluctuate markedly and do not reflect the performance of Genie Energy's continuing operations.

Pro forma revenue and pro forma income (loss) from operations as well as Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, revenue, gross profit, income from operations, cash flow from operating activities, net income, basic and diluted earnings per share or other measures of liquidity and financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, Genie Energy's measurements of pro forma revenue, pro forma income (loss) from operations and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Following are the reconciliations of GRE International's pro forma results and Adjusted EBITDA to its most directly comparable GAAP measure. Pro forma revenue for the GRE International segment is reconciled to the segment's revenue, and GRE International's pro forma loss from operations is reconciled to the segment's loss from operation. Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to income from operations for Genie Energy's reportable segments and net income for Genie Energy on a consolidated basis.
