Anaergia Announces Q1 2024 Financial Results

A company that offers integrated waste-to-value solutions, transforming organic waste into renewable natural gas, fertilizer, and water while reducing greenhouse gases, has announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024. All financial results are reported in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

“Following my earlier comments on the reasons for the delays in delivering the annual financial statements, I want to extend my gratitude to those who were involved in preparing both the annual and these quarterly statements,” said Assaf Onn, CEO of Anaergia. “We are now looking forward to taking the necessary steps to realize the potential of Anaergia as we deploy our industry-leading technologies in markets worldwide,” added Mr. Onn.

First Quarter 2024 Financial Results

Financial highlights:

  • Revenue: $25.0 million for the first quarter of 2024, a decrease of 33% or $12.4 million compared to the first quarter of the previous year. This decrease is mainly due to the completion of Italian Capital Sales projects, customer delays, and delays in new project signings. Additionally, Build, Own, Operate (“BOO”) revenue decreased due to the sale of the Bioener, S.p.A project in the third quarter of 2023.
  • Gross profit: $6.5 million for the first quarter of 2024, an increase of 28% or $1.4 million compared to the first quarter of the previous year. The increase in gross profit was due to higher margins on new operation and maintenance (“O&M”) project contracts in North America and the UK, as well as increased margins from the SoCal Biomethane BOO project in the first quarter of this year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Decreased by $9.3 million compared to the first quarter of 2023, falling from $3.3 million earnings to a loss of $6.0 million in the first quarter of this year. This negative variance is due to a $10.1 million gain on the sale of equity interests in a subsidiary of Anaergia that owned the Envo Biogas facility in Tønder, Denmark, in the first quarter of the previous year.
