Enersense International Plc, a provider of zero-emission energy solutions, is adjusting its guidance for 2021, published on 6 May 2021, in terms of adjusted EBITDA, which the company now expects to exceed EUR 19 million. At the same time, the company is further adjusting its guidance upwards in terms of adjusted EBIT, which the company now expects to exceed EUR 11 million.

Updated guidance for 2021:

  • Turnover: EUR 215–245 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA: over EUR 19 million
  • Adjusted EBIT: over EUR 11 million

Previous guidance, published on 6 May 2021:

  • Turnover: EUR 215–245 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA: EUR 17–20 million
  • Adjusted EBIT: EUR 8–11 million

Through a transaction completed on 4 October 2021, Enersense acquired the entire share capital of Pori Offshore Constructions Ltd (currently Enersense Offshore Oy), an offshore wind power company. The initial purchase price of the share capital was EUR 1.0. In addition, potential additional purchase price will be paid based on the EBITDA of Pori Offshore Constructions Ltd for 2022–25 in accordance with the terms and conditions of the sale and purchase agreement.  In connection with the transaction, the company executed a sale and leaseback arrangement concerning the land area and buildings in Mäntyluoto in Pori. Through the arrangement, it sold the land area and buildings to Suisto Kiinteistöt Ltd, a company owned by the municipality of Pori, for EUR 8.0 million and entered into a five-year lease concerning these. Originally Enersense estimated that the transaction does not affect Enersense’s 2021 financial guidance.

As a part of the integration of Enersense Offshore Oy, the company has completed a third party assessment on the values of Enersense Offshore Oy’s properties and fixed and intangible assets for the purposes of the purchase price allocation for the transaction, and such assessment indicate a value which is higher than that identified at the time of the completion of the transaction. Intangible assets include, in particular, intangible rights related to the construction and design of offshore wind farms and SPAR platforms, such as technical competence and technology, certified quality systems, computing data and other documentation. In addition to previously mentioned, Enersense Offshore Oy has applied for an EP patent for offshore wind power plants’ platform technology.   

As a result of the aforesaid new valuations, Enersense adjusts its previous guidance as described above.

Enersense’s guidance for the year 2022 is expected to be published during the first quarter of 2022. If completed, the acquisition of Megatuuli Oy published on 20 December 2021, will have a positive impact on next year’s guidance. The preconditions and impact of the acquisition are described in more detail in the stock exchange release dated 20 December 2021. Items that could possibly burden results in 2022 include Enersense’s extensive project to renew the enterprise resource planning system, launched in the third quarter of 2021 to pursue improved operational efficiency and scaling capabilities of the company, as well as the integration and development process of Enersense Offshore Oy’s business that is expected to improve the profitability of the business of Enersense Offshore Oy during 2023.
