During 2020, Atlantica’s renewable assets continued showing a solid operating performance:

Production from the U.S. solar portfolio in the first quarter of 2020 was higher than in the same period of 2019 mainly due to higher solar radiation.
 
Production in Spain in the first quarter of 2020 was lower than in the same period of 2019, mostly due to significantly lower solar radiation. Impact on revenues and Adjusted EBITDA was limited since in Spain most of the revenue is based on capacity in accordance with the applicable regulation.
 
In South Africa, Kaxu production decreased due to lower solar radiation and a fire that affected electrical equipment.
 
Finally, production of wind assets also increased in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the same period of 2019.
 
Atlantica’s assets with revenue based on availability continue to deliver solid performance with high availability levels in ACT and Monterrey, transmission lines and water assets.

Liquidity and Debt
 
As of March 31, 2020, cash at Atlantica’s corporate level was $154.9 million. In addition, availability under its Revolving Credit Facility was approximately $251 million, resulting in a total corporate liquidity of $405.9 million. As of December 31, 2019, cash at the Atlantica corporate level was $66.0 million and availability under its Revolving Credit Facility was approximately $341.0 million.
 
As of March 31, 2020, net project debt was $4,241.9 million, compared with $4,355.6 million as of December 31, 2019, while net corporate debt was $652.4 million, compared with $657.8 million as of December 31, 2019.  The net corporate debt / CAFD pre-corporate debt service ratio9 was 2.4x as of March 31, 2020.
 
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 corporate level.
 
CAFD pre-corporate debt service is calculated as CAFD plus interest paid by Atlantica Yield plc.
 
Dividend
 
On May 6, 2020, the Board of Directors of Atlantica approved a dividend of $0.41 per share.  This dividend is expected to be paid on June 15, 2020 to shareholders of record as of June 1, 2020.
 
Strategy and Corporate Update
 
1.
Healthy Balance Sheet and Strong Liquidity
 
As of March 31, 2020, Atlantica’s available corporate liquidity stood at approximately $406 million, out of which approximately $155 million was corporate cash.
 


9 Net corporate leverage calculated as corporate net debt divided by midpoint 2020 CAFD guidance before corporate debt service.

The weighted average corporate debt maturity, as of today, is approximately 4.7 years. Atlantica has successfully refinanced more than $550 million dollars of corporate debt in the last twelve months, with significant improvements in cost and flexibility, but most importantly, significantly extending its maturities. Atlantica’s main corporate debt maturities are now in 2025 and 2026.
 
2.
Accretive Growth Strategy
 

a)
Option to acquire Solana’s tax equity investment
 
In April 2020 Atlantica extended its option to acquire its partner’s equity interest in Solana until August 2020. The Solana solar plant is a 280 MW gross solar electric generation facility located in Arizona. The asset has a 30-year (24 years remaining), fixed-price PPA with an escalator factor with Arizona Public Service Company.
 

b)
PTS acquisition
 
PTS reached COD in the first quarter of 2020 and closed its project finance agreement. Atlantica expects to increase its previously announced investment in the asset to a 70% ownership by the third quarter of 2020, subject to fullfiling certain conditions precedent.
 

c)
Renewable energy platform in Chile
 
In April 2020, Atlantica made an investment to create a renewable energy platform in Chile, together with financial partners. The first investment was the acquisition of an approximately 50 MW solar PV plant in an area with excellent solar resource. This asset has been in operation for several years and has demonstrated a good operating track record.
 

d)
New green project finance facility to fund growth investments
 
In April 2020, the subsidiary-holding company of certain Atlantica’s solar assets in Spain, entered into a green non-recourse project financing agreement with ING Bank, B.V. and Banco Santander S.A. This new financing has already closed and funds are available to Atlantica. This new non-recourse financing has resulted in a recap for Atlantica of approximately $143 million, net of transaction costs and reserves. Atlantica expects to use proceeds to finance new investments in renewable assets. The Green Project Finance was issued in compliance with the 2018 Green Loan Principles and has an unqualified Second Party Opinion delivered by Sustainalytics.

3.
Closing of a Green Private Placement
 
Atlantica successfully closed its previously announced private placement of approximately $320 million (€290 million10) Green Senior Secured Notes in Euros, which complies with the Green Bond Principles and has a second party opinion by Sustainalytics.  Net proceeds have been primarily used to repay the 2017 Senior Secured Note Facility (“2017 NIFA”).
 
The Green Private Placement has a 6-year tenor and bears a coupon of 1.96% per annum. With this transaction, Atlantica strengthens its financial position, extends its corporate debt maturities and expects to achieve a cost improvement of ~$10 million11 per annum starting in 2021.
 
4.
Good Progress on Environmental, Social and Governance
 
In February 2020, Sustainalytics updated its rating on Atlantica’s ESG factors. Atlantica was rated in the ESG Risk Rating assessment as the top company within both the renewable power production and the broader utility industry, and in the top 1% in the global rating universe, improving its score versus last year. In addition, in January 2020, Atlantica was rated with a “B” rating by CDP, two notches above the average for companies within the renewable power generation sector.
 
Atlantica has become a very active player in green financing thanks to its late issuances at both corporate and project level. During the last year, Atlantica has issued a Green Project Finance Facility, a Green Corporate Private Placement and an ESG-linked Financial Guarantee Line.

Atlantica disclaims any current intention to update such guidance, except as required by law.
 
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
 
This press release also includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA including unconsolidated affiliates, 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 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 presentation 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.

9

 

 
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 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 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 Adjusted EBITDA and CAFD differently than we do, which limits their usefulness as comparative measures.

We define 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.
 
10

 

 
Our management believes 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. 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. Adjusted EBITDA and CAFD are widely used by other companies in the same industry. Our management uses 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 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 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.
