Alterra Power Corp. Key Developments

Alterra Power Corp. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2015

Alterra Power Corp. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total revenues of $13,522,000 compared to $16,453,000 a year ago. EBITDA was $11,645,000 compared to $9,955,000 a year ago. Revenue was down 18% from the comparative quarter primarily due to the loss of revenue resulting from the sale of Soda Lake on January 30, 2015 ($1.1 million impact quarter on quarter) and unfavorable currency fluctuations. The company recorded net income of $6.8 million in the current quarter, compared to net income of $6.0 million in the comparative quarter. The increase was primarily from changes to income from equity-accounted investees and non-cash items such as the change in fair value of bonds payable and the gain on deconsolidation of Shannon which includes the $1.5 million developer's fee. Net interest in revenue decreased by $2.1 million to $17.7 million against the comparative quarter due to the sale of Soda Lake on January 30, 2015 ($1.1 million impact quarter on quarter) and currency impacts, slightly offset by increased generation at Toba Montrose. Consolidated EBITDA increased 17% against the comparative quarter to $11.6 million, reflecting increased generation at Toba Montrose and lower operating costs at HS Orka along with fluctuations in foreign exchange.
