Net profit for the first half of 2019 attributable to the Company was $17.0 million, compared with a net profit of $67.4 million in the first half of 2018.
 

Revenues reached $504.8 million for the first half of 2019, representing a 2.8% year-over-year increase on a constant currency basis. 1
 

Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates 2 amounted to $410.5 million in the first half of 2019.
 

Cash available for distribution (“CAFD”) increased by 5.3% to $94.5 million in the first half of 2019.
 

Quarterly dividend of $0.40 per share declared by the Board of Directors, representing an 18% increase compared with the second quarter of 2018.
 

Execution of several strategic initiatives aimed at a financial optimization and increasing CAFD generation.

August 7, 2019 – Atlantica Yield plc (NASDAQ: AY) (“Atlantica”), the sustainable total return infrastructure company that owns a diversified portfolio of contracted assets in the energy and environment sectors, today  reported its financial results for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019.

Revenue for the first half of 2019 reached $504.8 million, compared with $513.1 million in the same period of 2018. This decrease was primarily due to the effect of the depreciation of the euro against the U.S. dollar. On a constant currency basis 1 , revenue for the first half of 2019 would have been $527.3 million, representing an increase of 2.8% compared with the first half of 2018. Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates 2 was $410.5 million in the first half of 2019, compared to $443.3 million in the same period of 2018. In the first half of 2018, Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates 2 was positively impacted by a one-time non-cash gain of $39.0 million. On a constant currency basis, and excluding this one-time non-cash gain in 2018, Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates 3 would have increased by 5.8% in the six-month period ended June 30, 2019 compared to the same period of 2018.



1
We calculate constant currency amounts by converting our current period local currency revenue and Further Adj. EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates using the prior period foreign currency average exchange rates and comparing these adjusted amounts to our prior period reported results.
2
Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates includes our share in EBITDA of unconsolidated affiliates (see reconciliation on page 15).

Net cash provi ded by operating activities reached $149.1 million in the first half of 2019. CAFD generation in the first six months of 2019 was $94.5 million, a 5.3% increase compared with $89.7 million achieved in the first half of 2018.

During the first half of 2019, our renewable assets have continued to generate solid operating results:
 
Production in the U.S. solar portfolio in the first half of 2019 was lower than in the same period of 2018, mostly due to lower solar radiation in the first quarter and scheduled maintenance stops that took longer than expected. However, solar radiation has improved since the end of March, and production from the U.S. solar assets in the second quarter of 2019 was in line with production achieved in the second quarter of 2018.
 
Production in Spain increased significantly year-over-year thanks to higher solar radiation.
 
Kaxu (South Africa) had a strong operating performance, reaching a significant increase in production with a capacity factor of 38.2% in the first half of 2019 (compared with 32.2% in the first half of 2018).
 
Production of the wind assets was significantly higher year-over-year as a result of the contribution of the newly acquired Melowind asset, with no contribution in the first half of 2018.
 
Regarding Atlantica’s assets for which revenue is based on availability, they continue to deliver stable performance in transmission lines and in water assets. In ACT, the efficient natural gas-fired power generation plant, a scheduled major overhaul in one of the turbines was performed in the first quarter of 2019 and continued in the other turbine during the second quarter of 2019, leading to lower availability and production levels compared with the first half of 2018. Since the major overhaul was scheduled, it did not have any impact on revenues.
 
The solid operating performance of Atlantica in the first half of 2019 demonstrates the advantage of having a diversified portfolio where a significant percentage of our revenue is based on availability and not only on generation.

Liquidity and Debt
 
As of June 30, 2019, cash at the Atlantica corporate level was $107.0 million. In addition, availability under its Revolving Credit Facility was approximately $225.0 million, resulting in a total corporate liquidity of $332.0 million. On August 2, 2019, the limit of its Revolving Credit Facility was increased by an additional $125 million. As of December 31, 2018, cash at the Atlantica corporate level was $106.7 million and availability under its Revolving Credit Facility was $105 million.

4



As of June 30, 2019, net project debt was $4,528.4 million, compared with $4,566.3 million as of December 31, 2018, while net corporate debt was $582.6 million, compared with $577.4 million as of December 31, 2018. The net corporate debt / CAFD pre-corporate debt service ratio 8 was 2.5x as of June 30, 2019.
 
Net project debt is calculated as long-term project debt plus short-term project debt minus cash and cash equivalents at the consolidated project level. Net corporate debt is calculated as long-term corporate debt plus short-term corporate debt minus cash and cash equivalents at Atlantica’s corporate level.
 
CAFD pre-corporate debt service is calculated as CAFD plus interest paid by Atlantica.

Dividend
 
On August 2, 2019, the Board of Directors of Atlantica approved a dividend of $0.40 per share, which represents an 18% increase with respect to the second quarter of 2018.  This dividend is expected to be paid on September 13, 2019 to shareholders of record as of August 30, 2019.

Strategic and Financing Update
 
The Company has made progress in several strategic initiatives within its existing portfolio aimed at financial optimization and unlocking value creation to shareholders:
 
1.
CAFD generation from the optimization of operation & maintenance (“O&M”) activities:
 

Atlantica has internalized the entire O&M in its U.S. solar assets by acquiring the contracted services from its previous O&M provider. The purchase price is approximately $6.0 million, and it is expected to be accretive immediately thanks to the internalization of the fees currently paid to the supplier.
 


8
Net corporate leverage calculated as corporate net debt divided by midpoint 2019 CAFD guidance before corporate debt service.

5





Additionally, the Company intends to internalize part of the activities contracted in two wind assets, maintaining a direct relationship with the supplier for the turbine maintenance services.

2.
Project debt refinancing of Chilean asset portfolio to increase yearly CAFD generation:
 
In the second quarter of 2019, Atlantica refinanced the project debt of its Chilean assets. The new financing agreement consists of a single U.S. denominated 12-year loan agreement for Palmucho, Quadra 1 and 2 for a total amount of approximately $75.0 million with a syndicate of local banks.
 
With this new project debt refinancing, the Company expects to achieve an average CAFD improvement of approximately $2 million per year from 2020, as a result of the longer tenor and the reduced cost, compared to the previous financing.
 
3.
ESG-linked financial guarantee line to provide financial flexibility for projects:
 
Atlantica signed its first ESG-linked financial guarantee line. The cost is linked to Atlantica’s environmental, social and governance performance by a leading sustainable rating agency (Sustainalytics). The green guarantees will be exclusively used for renewable assets. Atlantica expects to use this guarantee line to progressively release restricted cash in some of its projects, providing additional financial flexibility.
 
Additionally, in relation to Atlantica’s accretive growth strategy, the Company successfully closed its 30% stake investment in Monterrey, as expected, on August 2, 2019.

Non - GAAP Financial Measures

This press release also includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates, Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates as a percentage of revenues (margin) and CAFD. Non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements of our performance or liquidity under IFRS as issued by the IASB and should not be considered alternatives to operating profit or profit for the period or any other performance measures derived in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB or any other generally accepted accounting principles or as alternatives to cash flow from operating, investing or financing activities. Please refer to the appendix of this presentation for a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS as well as the reasons why management believes the use of non-GAAP financial measures in this presentation provides useful information.
 
8




We present non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that they and other similar measures are widely used by certain investors, securities analysts and other interested parties as supplemental measures of performance and liquidity. The non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our operating results as reported under IFRS as issued by the IASB. Non-GAAP financial measures and ratios are not measurements of our performance or liquidity under IFRS as issued by the IASB and should not be considered as alternatives to operating profit or profit for the period or any other performance measures derived in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB or any other generally accepted accounting principles or as alternatives to cash flow from operating, investing or financing activities. Some of the limitations of these non-GAAP measures are:
 
they do not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
they may not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary, to service interest or principal payments, on our debts;
although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often need to be replaced in the future and Further Adjusted EBITDA and CAFD do not reflect any cash requirements that would be required for such replacements;
some of the exceptional items that we eliminate in calculating Further Adjusted EBITDA reflect cash payments that were made, or will be made in the future; and
the fact that other companies in our industry may calculate Further Adjusted EBITDA and CAFD differently than we do, which limits their usefulness as comparative measures.
 
We define Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates as profit/(loss) for the period attributable to the Company, after adding back loss/(profit) attributable to non-controlling interest from continued operations, income tax, share of profit/(loss) of associates carried under the equity method, finance expense net, depreciation, amortization and impairment charges. CAFD is calculated as cash distributions received by the Company from its subsidiaries minus all cash expenses of the Company, including debt service and general and administrative expenses.
 
9




Our management believes Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates and CAFD is useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because it provides them with an additional tool to compare business performance across companies and across periods. Further Adjusted EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired. Our management believes CAFD is a relevant supplemental measure of the Company’s ability to earn and distribute cash returns to investors and that CAFD is useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because securities analysts and other interested parties use such calculations as a measure of our ability to make quarterly distributions. In addition, CAFD is used by our management team for determining future acquisitions and managing our growth. Further Adjusted EBITDA and CAFD are widely used by other companies in the same industry. Our management uses Further Adjusted EBITDA and CAFD as measures of operating performance to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis and to readily view operating trends, as a measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations, and in communications with our board of directors, shareholders, creditors, analysts and investors concerning our financial performance.
 
In our discussion of operating results, we have included foreign exchange impacts in our revenue and Further Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates by providing constant currency growth. The constant currency presentation is not a measure recognized under IFRS and excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. We believe providing constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding our results of operations. We calculate constant currency amounts by converting our current period local currency revenue and Further Adjusted EBITDA using the prior period foreign currency average exchange rates and comparing these adjusted amounts to our prior period reported results. This calculation may differ from similarly titled measures used by others and, accordingly, the constant currency presentation is not meant to substitute for recorded amounts presented in conformity with IFRS as issued by the IASB nor should such amounts be considered in isolation.
