During 2013 and early 2014, we added 70 MW of new generating capacity from three new geothermal power plants bringing our total portfolio to 626 MW.

“In the product segment, we’ve received a robust flow of orders for our unique power solutions resulting in record revenues of $203.5 million. During 2013 and the first part of 2014, we successfully completed nine power plants with approximately 270 MW of gross generating capacity. The plants, which we completed for our clients and for our own portfolio, significantly contributed to the growth of the geothermal industry. Our strength in the market and appetite for continued growth will continue to support our backlog currently standing at $165.0 million, excluding the Sarulla project supply contract. With growing demand for geothermal energy across the globe and financial incentives in place to foster its development, we continue to be optimistic about Ormat’s future growth.”

Bronicki added, “We expect our 2014 electricity revenues to be between $370 million and $380 million and our product segment revenues to be between $170 million and $180 million, including $36 million revenue from the Sarulla project.”

Financial Summary
Annual Results
For the year ended December 31, 2013, total revenues increased 6.3% from $501.8 million in 2012 to $533.2 million in 2013. Product revenues increased 8.9% to $203.5 million, up from $186.9 million in the year ended December 31, 2012. The increase in product revenues reflects the increase in new customer orders that we secured in 2012 and 2013. Electricity revenues increased 4.7% from $314.9 million in 2012 to $329.7 in 2013. The increase in electricity revenues was primarily due to a revenue contribution of $37.3 million from Olkaira III Plant 2, McGinness Hills and Tuscarora. The increase was offset by an $11.0 million decrease resulting from the natural gas prices; a $2.8 million mark to market loss compared to a $2.3 million mark to market gain on derivative contracts on oil and natural gas prices; reduced generation in some power plants; and a reduction in energy rates at Puna and Amatitlan power plants.

Operating income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $97.0 million, compared to an operating loss of $159.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2012.

We calculate EBITDA as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, excluding impairment of long-lived assets and one-time termination fee. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not a measurement of financial performance or liquidity under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or as a measure of liquidity or an alternative to net earnings as indicators of our operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented because we believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of a company’s ability to service and/or incur debt. However, other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do.
