Investor Conference Call and Webcast on March 9, 2020, at 11:00 A.M. ET

 

MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J., March 5, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Ocean Power Technologies, Inc. (“OPT” or “the Company”) (Nasdaq: OPTT), a leader in innovative and cost-effective ocean energy solutions, today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 ended January 31, 2021.

 

Recent Operational Highlights

 

  Acquired 3Dent Technology, adding offshore engineering and design services and an established project and customer base.
  Planned first OPT PowerBuoy® remote deployment.
  Strengthened its liquidity position with an increase in total cash of $80.4 million.

 

Management Commentary

 

“OPT’s third quarter brought dramatic change to our company,” said George H. Kirby, OPT’s President and Chief Executive Officer, “We acquired 3Dent Technology, which we believe is an important step for our long-term growth strategy and expanding our offerings of autonomous clean ocean energy and data solutions. Additionally, we planned our first remote installation of a turnkey wave energy-powered subsea data collection system in Chile, which we believe offers flexibility and cost-reduction to our customers. We also welcomed three new directors to our board who bring valuable expertise in offshore energy, safety, and finance and governance.”

 

Kirby further said, “A key goal for us this year was to bolster our financial position, improve our liquidity and reduce our capital risk, and we believe that we’ve made great strides towards those efforts. During the fiscal year, the Company has generated $76.1 million in net proceeds through utilization of its ATM Facilities and Equity Line Common Stock Purchase Agreements, including $66.7 in net proceeds raised during the third quarter, during which we saw an increase in share price. Additionally, the Company’s liquidity position has improved due to cost cutting measures that were put in place at the beginning of the year. We believe that the Company’s unrestricted cash balance of approximately $79.8 million as of January 31, 2021, in addition to continued prudent cost management, will provide us with the capital necessary to fund ongoing operations as well as the financial flexibility to execute on our growth strategy, consisting of market expansion, sales cycle acceleration, development of new products and solutions, and strategic acquisitions.”

 

Third Quarter and First Nine Months Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Review

 

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2021 was $0.3 million compared to $0.7 million for the same period in the prior year, and the net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 increased by $0.3 million as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Revenue for the first nine months of fiscal year 2021 was $0.6 million compared to $1.1 million for the same period in the prior year, and the net loss for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 increased by $0.5 million as compared to the same period in the prior year. The decrease in revenue and increase in net loss for the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2021 were mainly attributable to pandemic-related delays of the Company’s revenue-generating projects.

 

 
 

 

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

 

Total cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash was $80.4 million as of January 31, 2021. Net cash used in operating activities decreased by $0.1 million during the first nine months of fiscal 2021 to $8.5 million, as compared to the first nine months of fiscal 2020. This decrease is mainly the result of lower cash spending on customer projects and product development costs in the current fiscal year period as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. During the nine months ended January 31, 2021 the Company’s At-The-Market agreements and agreements with Aspire Capital generated net proceeds of $76.1 million.
