Point Roberts, WA and Delta, BC - January 31, 2020 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source and leading investor resource covering cleantech and renewable energy stocks issues today's edition of the Cleantech and Climate Change Podcast, talking about today's problems and solutions for the future.
Listen to the Podcast:
Today we're looking at how electric car maker Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) charged up investors with their financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2019. Tesla shares closed yesterday, January 30th at $640.81+ $59.82 or (+10.30%) on over 29 million shares and showed continued gains in the aftermarket.
Summary from their report:
"2019 was a turning point for Tesla. We demonstrated strong organic demand for Model 3, returned to GAAP profitability in 2H19 and generated $1.1B of free cash flow for the year. We achieved strong cash generation through persistent cost control across the business. Our pace of execution has also improved significantly, as we have incorporated many learnings from our experience launching Model 3 in the United States. As a result, we were able to start Model 3 production in Gigafactory Shanghai in less than 10 months from breaking ground and have already begun the production ramp for Model Y in Fremont. None of this would be possible without strong demand for our products. For most of 2019, nearly all orders came from new buyers that did not hold a prior reservation, demonstrating significant reach beyond those who showed early interest. Amazingly, this was accomplished without any spend on advertising. As more people drive our cars and as the industry rapidly validates electrification, interest in our products will continue to grow. Higher volumes driven by Model Y and Gigafactory Shanghai, continued improvements in operating leverage, and further cost efficiencies should allow Tesla to ultimately reach an industry-leading operating margin."
Looking at their energy storage, they reported:
"Energy Business Energy storage deployment reached an all-time high of 530 MWh in Q4, which included the first deployments of Megapack, our new commercialscale 3 MWh integrated storage system that is preassembled at Gigafactory Nevada as a single unit. Since the introduction of this product, the level of interest and orders from various global project developers and utilities has surpassed our expectations.
In 2019, we deployed 1.65 GWh of energy storage, more than we deployed in all prior years combined.
In Q4, we deployed 54 MW of solar, 26% more than in the prior quarter. Where offered, subscription solar has grown significantly in Q4. With a monthly subscription that can generate income from the first month of usage, there is no reason not to have solar panels installed."
