Financial results

Enphase Energy reported first-quarter 2018 revenue of US$69.97 million, compared to guidance of revenue expected to be within a range of US$65 million to US$70 million.

The revenue results were a 12% sequential decline from US$79.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, yet due to seasonality, turned into an increase of 28% year-over-year.

Enphase started shipping its next-generation microinverter ‘IQ 7’ to customers in the US during the first quarter and recently started shipping IQ 7 to customers in the UK. 

In April, Enphase announced a strategic partnership with Solaria for the development of an Enphase Energized AC Module and the introduction of Enphase IQ microinverters across India. 

The IQ 7 has been touted as the first worldwide SKU that will be phased into worldwide markets throughout 2018, enabling lower product manufacturing costs and potentially higher gross margins.
Enphase reported first-quarter GAAP gross margins of 26.2%, compared to previous guidance of 22%.

The company shipped 180MW (DC), or 611,000 microinverters in the first quarter of 2018, compared to 221MW (DC), or 755,000 microinverters in the previous quarter.

Enphase made a US$5.12 million net loss in the reporting quarter, compared to a net loss of US$23.3 million in the prior year period and a net of US$2.94 million in the previous quarter.

The company guided second-quarter revenue to be within a range of US$72 million to US$80 million and a GAAP gross margin to be around 26%.
