STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Emeren Group Ltd ("Emeren" or the "Company") (www.emeren.com) (NYSE: SOL), a leading global solar project developer, owner, and operator, today provided a preliminary unaudited overview of its key financial results for the full year 2023, highlighting notable achievements and providing insights into the Company's strategic plans moving forward.

  • Positive Operating Cash Flow and Strong Cash Position: As of December 31, 2023, Emeren achieved a cash balance of $70 million. Notably, operating cash flow became positive in Q4, a significant milestone, particularly in-light of the two acquisitions completed in Q4 in Spain and China. Furthermore, the Company successfully collected cash payments exceeding $40 million, underscoring strong financial discipline.
  • Ongoing Share Buybacks: Building on this positive financial trajectory, Emeren repurchased approximately 1,250,000 American Depositary Shares ("ADS") of its stock, returning ~$3.35 million during the fourth quarter. This buyback program remains ongoing underscoring the Company's commitment to enhancing shareholder value.
  • 2023 Financial Results: Despite delayed governmental approvals impacting revenue in Q4 2023, Emeren anticipates full year 2023 revenue of approximately $100 million and a net loss of $6-7 million. The delayed project approvals are anticipated to be resolved within the first half of 2024.
  • Storage Expansion Initiatives: Emphasizing its commitment to growth, Emeren remains steadfast in its pursuit of storage expansion initiatives, positioning itself for future opportunities.
  • 2024 Financial Guidance and Strategic Shift: Emeren anticipates net income of approximately $26 million for the fiscal year 2024. The Company will discuss its strategy on advanced-stage development along with the commencement of building higher-return IPPs on its upcoming earnings call. The goal is also to accelerate the monetization of its over 3 GW pipeline.
  • Enhanced Disclosure and Transparency: To foster stronger communication with stakeholders, beginning in 2024, Emeren will initiate 10K/10Q filings, offering increased disclosures and transparency. The 2023 10K filing is scheduled for completion by March 31, 2024.

Emeren remains focused on executing its strategic plans and providing value to its shareholders. The comprehensive financial results will be accessible in the forthcoming 10-K filing.
