Company Release - 11/1/2018 4:15 PM ET

ANNAPOLIS, Md., Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital, Inc. ("Hannon Armstrong," "we," "our" or the "Company") (NYSE: HASI), a capital provider focused on sustainable infrastructure markets that address climate change, today reported quarterly results.

Hannon Armstrong - Investing in the Future of Energy(SM) (PRNewsFoto/Hannon Armstrong)

Third Quarter 2018 Highlights

  • Delivered $0.30 GAAP EPS in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $0.14 in the third quarter of 2017
  • Delivered $0.36 Core EPS in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $0.31 in the third quarter of 2017
  • Confirming expected 2018 annual Core EPS growth guidance
  • Closed $553 million of transactions in the quarter, totaling approximately $861 million of transactions through September 30, 2018, compared to approximately $751 million in the same period in 2017
  • Pipeline remains over $2.5 billion
  • Fixed-rate debt level of 77% as of September 30, 2018
  • Debt to equity ratio of 2.4 to 1 as of September 30, 2018
  • An estimated 286,000 metric tons of annual carbon emissions will be offset annually by third quarter transactions equating to a CarbonCount® score of 0.52 metric tons per $1,000 invested

"We are benefiting from growth in virtually all of the markets in which we invest, having originated a record $553 million of transactions in the quarter," said Jeffrey Eckel, Hannon Armstrong President & CEO.  "While we continue to execute a balanced strategy, our behind-the-meter originations comprised of primarily efficiency, solar and storage represented the majority of balance sheet growth and gain on sale revenue for the quarter. These assets are attractive for both our balance sheet and institutional investors, giving us options for how we finance them. Given strong originations, higher securitizations, and considering the depth of the origination pipeline, we remain optimistic for the remainder of 2018," continued Eckel.

A summary of our results is shown in the tables below:

Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Revenue grew by approximately $8 million, or 32%, for the three months, and approximately $20 million, or 26%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to the same periods in 2017. Increases in the quarter and year to date were primarily driven by higher gain on sale fees of approximately $7 million and $16 million, respectively, due to increased securitization activity. The revenue growth was offset by an approximately $2 million increase in interest expense for the three months, and an approximately $11 million increase for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to the same periods in 2017.  This increase was primarily the result of an increase in total debt as well as a higher percentage of fixed rate debt.

Other expenses (compensation and benefits and general and administrative expenses) increased by approximately $2 million for both GAAP and core for the three months, and by approximately $4 million for both GAAP and core for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to the same periods in 2017 due primarily to an increase in the size of the Company.

For the third quarter, income from equity method investments increased by approximately $5 million primarily due to a project company's negotiated settlement of a power purchase agreement, compared to the third quarter in 2017.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, income from equity method investments was largely consistent with the same period in 2017.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, we recognized GAAP net income of $16 million for the quarter, an increase of $9 million over the same quarter last year. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, GAAP net income increased by approximately $5 million as a result of increased gain on sale fee income due to increased securitization activity partly offset by higher interest expense and higher other expenses during the year.

Third quarter core earnings grew by approximately $3 million over the same quarter last year primarily due to the increase in gain on sale income.  Core earnings grew by approximately $5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 over the same period in 2017 primarily as a result of increased gain on sale fee income due to increased securitization activity. For additional information please see "Explanatory Notes - Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Core Earnings."

A reconciliation of our GAAP net income to core earnings is included in this press release.

Floating-rate borrowings include borrowings under our floating-rate credit facilities and approximately $56 million and $236 million
of nonrecourse debt with floating rate exposure as of September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively. Approximately $32
million of the September 30, 2018 floating rate exposure is hedged beginning in 2019.

(2)

Fixed-rate debt also includes the present notional value of nonrecourse debt that is hedged using interest rate swaps. Debt excludes
securitizations that are not consolidated on our balance sheet.

(3)

Leverage, as measured by our debt-to-equity ratio. This calculation excludes securitizations that are not consolidated on our balance
sheet (where the collateral is typically financing receivables with U.S. government obligors).

 

"We increased our use of floating-rate debt facilities quarter over quarter to take advantage of lower borrowing costs while modestly increasing our leverage," said Brendan Herron, Chief Financial Officer.  "We expect our fixed-rate debt level to remain in our 60% to 85% fixed debt target range, given the continued focus of the Fed on raising short-term rates."

Portfolio

Our Portfolio totaled approximately $2.1 billion as of September 30, 2018, and included approximately $1.1 billion of behind-the-meter assets, approximately $0.9 billion of grid-connected assets and approximately $0.1 billion of other sustainable infrastructure investments.

(1)

Transactions where the ultimate obligor is the U.S. federal government or state or local governments where the obligors are rated investment grade (either by an independent rating agency or based upon our internal credit analysis). This amount includes $389 million of U.S. federal government transactions and $232 million of transactions where the ultimate obligors are state or local governments. Transactions may have guaranties of energy savings from third party service providers, which typically are entities rated investment grade by an independent rating agency.

(2)

Transactions where the projects or the ultimate obligors are commercial entities that have been rated investment grade (either by an independent rating agency or based on our internal credit analysis). Of this total, $9 million of the transactions have been rated investment grade by an independent rating agency. Commercial investment grade receivables include $308 million of internally rated residential solar loans made on a non-recourse basis to special purpose subsidiaries of the SunPower Corporation ("SunPower"), for which we rely on certain limited indemnities, warranties, and other obligations of SunPower or its subsidiaries.

(3)

Transactions where the projects or the ultimate obligors are commercial entities that either have ratings below investment grade (either by an independent rating agency or using our internal credit analysis) or where the nature of subordination in the asset causes it to be considered non-investment grade. This includes an approximately $110 million mezzanine loan made in the third quarter of  2018 on a non-recourse basis to special purpose subsidiaries of SunPower secured by residential solar assets and for which we rely on certain limited indemnities, warranties, and other obligations of SunPower or its other subsidiaries.

(4)

Includes the real estate and the lease intangible assets (including those held through equity method investments) from which we receive scheduled lease payments, typically under long-term triple net lease agreements.

(5)

Excludes approximately 160 transactions each with outstanding balances that are less than $1 million and that in the aggregate total $60 million.

 

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Update

In October 2018, our Board of Directors approved our most recent formalized Environmental, Social and Governance, or ESG, policies which have been posted to our website at www.hannonarmstrong.com.  The policies are intended to further illustrate our commitment to enhancing our sustainability disclosures.  Given the recent study by USSIF - the Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment - reporting an increase in U.S. sustainable investment strategies and the Company's long standing ESG focus, we believe investors have an increasing interest in transparent ESG policies.

Forward-looking statements are based on beliefs, assumptions and expectations as of the date of this press release. Any forward- looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New risks and uncertainties arise over time, and it is not possible for us to predict those events or how they may affect us. Except as required by law, we are not obligated to, and do not intend to, update or revise any forward-looking statements after the date of this earnings release, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

The Company is confirming its previously issued 2018 guidance for annual core earnings per share growth of 2% to 6% for 2018 compared to 2017 and its three-year guidance with respect to core earnings per share growth, on a compounded annual basis over the next three years, in the 2% to 6% range. The confirmed guidance reflects the Company's estimates of (i) yield on its existing Portfolio; (ii) yield on incremental Portfolio investments, inclusive of the Company's existing pipeline; (iii) amount, timing, and costs of debt and equity capital to fund new investments; (iv) changes in costs and expenses reflective of the Company's forecasted operations and (v) the general interest rate and market environment. All guidance is based on current expectations of future economic conditions, the regulatory environment, the dynamics of the markets in which it operates and the judgment of the Company's management team.

The Company has not provided GAAP guidance as forecasting a comparable GAAP financial measure, such as net income, would require that the Company apply the HLBV method to these investments. In order to forecast under the HLBV method, the Company would be required to make various assumptions related to expected changes in the net asset value of the various entities and how such changes would be allocated under HLBV. GAAP HLBV earnings over a period of time are very sensitive to these assumptions especially in regard to when a partnership transactions flips and thus the liquidation scenarios change materially. The Company believes that these assumptions would require unreasonable efforts to complete and if completed, the wide variation in projected GAAP earnings based upon a range of scenarios would not be meaningful to investors. Accordingly, the Company has not included a GAAP reconciliation table related to any Core Earnings guidance.

Estimated carbon savings are calculated using the estimated kilowatt hours ("kWh"), gallons of fuel oil, million British thermal units ("MMBtus") of natural gas and gallons of water saved as appropriate, for each project. The energy savings are converted into an estimate of metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions based upon the project's location and the corresponding emissions factor data from the U.S. Government and International Energy Agency. Portfolios of projects are represented on an aggregate basis.

The risks included here are not exhaustive. Our most recent quarterly report on Form 10Q, annual report on Form10K, or other regulatory filings may include additional factors that could adversely affect our business and financial performance. Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risk factors emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all such risk factors, nor can it assess the impact of all such risk factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results.

EXPLANATORY NOTES

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Core Earnings

We calculate core earnings as GAAP net income (loss) excluding non-cash equity compensation expense, non-cash provision for credit losses, amortization of intangibles, any one-time acquisition related costs or non-cash tax charges and the earnings attributable to our non-controlling interest of our Operating Partnership. We also make an adjustment to our equity method investments in the renewable energy projects as described below. In the future, core earnings may also exclude one-time events pursuant to changes in GAAP and certain other non-cash charges as approved by a majority of our independent directors.

Certain of our equity method investments in renewable energy projects are structured using typical partnership "flip" structures where we, along with any other institutional investors, if any, receive a pre-negotiated preferred return consisting of priority distributions from the project cash flows, in many cases, along with tax attributes. Once this preferred return is achieved, the partnership "flips" and the renewable energy company, which operates the project, receives more of the cash flows through its equity interests while we, and any other institutional investors, retain an ongoing residual interest. We typically negotiate the purchase prices of our equity investments, which have a finite expected life, based on our assessment of the expected cash flows we will receive from these projects discounted back to the net present value, based on a target investment rate, with the expected cash flows to be received in the future reflecting both a return on the capital (at the investment rate) and a return of the capital we have committed to the project. We use a similar approach in the underwriting of our receivables.

Under GAAP, we account for these equity method investments utilizing the HLBV method. Under this method, we recognize income or loss based on the change in the amount each partner would receive, typically based on the negotiated profit and loss allocation, if the assets were liquidated at book value, after adjusting for any distributions or contributions made during such quarter. The HLBV allocations of income or loss are also impacted by the receipt of tax attributes, as tax equity investors are allocated losses in proportion to the tax benefits received, while the sponsors of the project are allocated gains of a similar amount. In addition, the agreed upon allocations of the project's cash flows may differ materially from the profit and loss allocation used for the HLBV calculations.

The cash distributions for our equity method investments are segregated into a return on and return of capital on our cash flow statement based on the cumulative income (loss) that has been allocated using the HLBV method. However, as a result of the application of the HLBV method, including the impact of tax allocations, the high levels of depreciation and other non-cash expenses that are common to renewable energy projects and the differences between the agreed upon profit and loss and the cash flow allocations, the distributions and thus the economic returns (i.e. return on capital) achieved from the investment are often significantly different from the income or loss that is allocated to us under the HLBV method. Thus, in calculating core earnings, we further adjust GAAP net income (loss) to take into account our calculation of the return on capital (based upon the investment rate) from our renewable energy equity method investments, as adjusted to reflect the performance of the project and the cash distributed. We believe this core equity method investment earnings adjustment to our GAAP net income (loss) in calculating our core earnings measure is an important supplement to the HLBV income allocations determined under GAAP for an investor to understand the economic performance of these investments.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, we recognized income of $12 million and $20 million, respectively under GAAP for our equity investments in renewable energy projects. We reversed the GAAP income and recorded $10 million and $31 million, our core equity method investment earnings adjustments discussed above, to reflect our return on capital from these investments for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively. This compares to the collected cash distributions from these equity method investments of approximately $30 million and $100 million, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, with the difference between core earnings and cash collected representing a return of capital.

We believe that core earnings provides an additional measure of our core operating performance by eliminating the impact of certain non-cash expenses and facilitating a comparison of our financial results to those of other comparable companies with fewer or no non-cash charges and comparison of our own operating results from period to period. Our management uses core earnings in this way. We believe that our investors also use core earnings, or a comparable supplemental performance measure, to evaluate and compare our performance to that of our peers, and as such, we believe that the disclosure of core earnings is useful to our investors.

However, core earnings does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) (determined in accordance with GAAP), or an indication of our cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP), or a measure of our liquidity, or an indication of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions. In addition, our methodology for calculating core earnings may differ from the methodologies employed by other REITs to calculate the same or similar supplemental performance measures, and accordingly, our reported core earnings may not be comparable to similar metrics reported by other REITs.
