Alterra Power Corp. Reports Audited Consolidated Earnings and Production Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2014

Alterra Power Corp. reported audited consolidated earnings results for the year ended December 31, 2014. For the year, the company reported total revenue was $70,952,000 compared to $63,872,000 for the same period last year. EBITDA was $51,047,000 compared to $43,333,000 for the same period last year. Revenue was up 11%, due to increased revenues at HS Orka predominately due to an increase in retail energy sales coupled with a strengthening of the Icelandic Krona during the year, which resulted in an increase in gross profit of $4.1 million to $17.1 million. Net loss was $34.8 million, an improvement against the comparative year loss of $116.3 million. This net loss and decrease against prior year is largely due to non-cash items including: A $11.8 million non-cash loss against $21.7 million non-cash loss in 2013 in the value of the embedded derivative liabilities resulting from aluminum price fluctuations and foreign exchange; and a $22.4 million write-down of development costs against $120.5 million write-down in 2013. The write-down in 2014 is comprised of $16.8 million for Dokie 2, $0.3 million for the Upper Lillooet geothermal project (both related to a worsened outlook for obtaining power purchase agreements in British Columbia in the near term) and $5.3 million for the Soda Lake plant and equipment and geothermal development projects. Cash flow from operations was $26.8 million, an increase of 62% from the comparative year due to higher distributions received from Toba Montrose and Blue Lagoon in the year as well as increased EBITDA. For the year, the company power projects generated 2,413,652 MWh of clean power (101% of plan) led by the Toba Montrose facility.
