CALGARY, AB, Aug. 29, 2022 /CNW/ – Eguana Technologies Inc. (“Eguana” or the “Company“) (TSXV: EGT) (OTCQB: EGTYF) today announced results for its third quarter ended June 30, 2022.
Full energy storage system production began in June at the San Jose, California facility with product throughput and first pass yield increasing each month since. Supply chain risks have been minimized through an integrated Alternate Parts Program and strategic inventory investments. Additional capacity will be immediately added as the Company continues its focus on production output and availability.
“We knew supply side optimization and output would be critical given our projected growth rates” commented Eguana CEO Justin Holland. “We expect to see rapid uptake in the near term with more distribution branches opening and additional white label partners coming on, which will drive micro inverter and energy storage sales revenues.”
Fiscal Q2 2022 Financial Highlights
Q3 2022 product revenue of $2.32 million, an increase of 73.5% from Q3 2021 product revenue of $1.34 million. The increase was generated through the introduction of the micro inverters to go alongside the energy storage systems
Q3 2022 gross margin from product sales of 0.04%, a decrease from 3.6% in Q3 2021. Gross margins were negatively impacted by a one-time inventory rationalization result from the operations and supply chain relocation to San Jose
Q3 2022 operating loss of $2.68 million, a slight increase from a $2.31 million operating loss for the same period in 2021
Positive working capital trend sitting at $7.4 million at June 30, 2022, an increase from $2.4 million for Fiscal 2021
Business Highlights and Outlook
Completed phase one plant commissioning, production transition, and IFT (production test and capacity) installation for turn-key manufacturing in San Jose, California
Second IFT installation planned for September 2022, doubling nameplate production capacity to 800 units per month
Targeting continued improvement in overall capacity utilization throughout the next two quarters with an immediate focus to achieving first pass product yields above 90%
Improved product certification efficiency as the Company qualified under CSA’s Supervised Manufacturer’s Testing for Certification Program (SMTP) allowing it to conduct its own certification testing in house and submit the results for approval by CSA
Strategic component inventory investments to accelerate current orders, support future growth and white label opportunities
Initiated $12 million inventory investment in battery modules and micro inverters to build on-shore availability, reducing port and logistics related delay
De-risking component inventory through Eguana/Omega integrated Alternate Parts Program
Working capital expansion to more timely match future order expectations
Sales, Channel Management, and Distribution
Consumer based premium brand marketing commenced, expected to drive growth and awareness through distribution and installer channels
Augmented sales management senior leadership to accelerate distribution branch onboarding and installer & consumer marketing, sales management, white label and utility channel opportunities
Branch level onboarding process improvements to increase repeat orders as well as additional white label opportunities direct and with partners in various utility channels over the next two quarters
Order Book and Finance
Total order book of $27 million
Negotiated $33 million convertible debenture with ITOCHU Corporation
Negotiated US$5 million second draw with Western Technology Investment
Through the quarter the Company worked with long standing partners ITOCHU and Western Technology Investment to significantly increase its working capital position, culminating in two transactions totaling approximately $40 million. The new capital will accelerate growth objectives with significant increases in inventory investment for micro inverters and battery modules required to meet market demand. Additional production capacity equipment has been procured and will be installed in the San Jose facility in September 2022 and March 2023.
“Based on market demand, based primarily in North America and Australia, we needed to significantly increase our inventory positioning with respect to battery modules and micro inverters, the new capital has provided that opportunity” Holland continued. “We will continue increasing production capacity and output with our partners in San Jose to meet the increasing volumes.”

My rent is $850/month that I split with my girlfriend, and I do not have a car payment or credit card debt. So that might mean that if you believe it will cost $500,000 to buy the home you want, you might want to want to put down at least 20% to avoid mortgage insurance, which means you’d need to save about $100,000 over and above your emergency fund.
