Gross profit increased by 14% to US$87.4 million compared to US$76.6 million in Q3 2022, driven by an increase in gross profit as a percent of revenue, partly offset by decreased volume. However, Q3 2023 gross profit dropped by 41.7% quarter-on-quarter.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) increased to US$57.4 million, compared to US$55.4 million for the prior-year period.

Looking ahead, the company expects that revenue will be in the range of US$1,525 million to US$1,575 million, and adjusted EBITDA will be in the range of US$280 million to US$290 million.

“We are seeing a steady increase in our domestic pipeline, which has more than doubled from the second quarter. This increase is a key early indicator of the expected momentum in our orderbook,” said Kevin Hostetler, CEO of Array Technologies.

He added: “We have continued to be impacted by short-term delays in project timing driven by customer pushouts, which has reduced our revenue outlook for the full year. However, despite these project timing challenges, we continue to be encouraged by our operational execution, in particular our efforts to expand our non-tracker offerings, which will drive better than anticipated margins for the second half of the year.”

Additionally, Array Technologies continued to expand its business as announced plans to build a second manufacturing plant in Albuquerque, New Mexico last week. Construction of the plant will begin in early 2024 with an investment of US$50 million from Array Technologies and its partners.

In July, the company also collaborated with Lock Joint Tube, a manufacturer of structural and mechanical-grade steel tubing in Texas, to procure steel tubing. The news follows the Internal Revenue Service’s guidance on the domestic content tax credits included under the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which offers a 10% bonus to renewables projects that meet its criteria for domestically-sourced components and material.

Our publisher Solar Media is hosting the 10th Solar and Storage Finance USA conference, 7-8 November 2023 at the New Yorker Hotel, New York. Topics ranging from the Inflation Reduction Act to optimising asset revenues, the financing landscape in 2023 and much more will be discussed. See the official site for more details.

FREE WEBINAR -This special webinar will take a deep dive into the latest PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings pyramid, capturing the relative bankability status of the top 70-80 PV module suppliers globally. In addition to revealing the latest ranking of global PV module suppliers, PV Tech’s Head of Research, Finlay Colville, will show the depth of analysis and commentary included within the report for module suppliers. A key output from the webinar will be to learn which PV module suppliers have moved up the rankings pyramid in recent years and why this growth has been achieved. Conversely, some of the companies that have fallen down the rankings will be discussed, in particular those suffering from market-share losses and financial problems.

PV Tech has been running PV ModuleTech Conferences since 2017. PV ModuleTech USA, on 17-18 June 2025, will be our fourth PV ModulelTech conference dedicated to the U.S. utility scale solar sector. The event will gather the key stakeholders from solar developers, solar asset owners and investors, PV manufacturing, policy-making and and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out the PV module supply channels to the U.S. out to 2026 and beyond.
