  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "American Superconductor Corporation is a leading energy technologies company. The company develops and sells a wide range of products and solutions based on power electronic systems and high temperature superconductor wires that dramatically improve the efficiency, reliability and quality of electricity during its generation, transmission, distribution and use. The company is a dominant force in alternative energy, offering grid interconnection solutions as well as licensed wind energy designs and electrical systems. As the world's principal supplier of HTS wire, AMSC is enabling a new generation of compact, high-power electrical products, including power cables, grid-level surge protectors, motors, generators, and advanced transportation and defense systems. AMSC also provides utility and industrial customers worldwide with voltage regulation systems that dramatically enhance power grid capacity, reliability and security, as well as industrial productivity. " (2/2/2017)

  • FBR & Co analysts commented, "On January 27, after the market close, AMSC announced preliminary F3Q16 results with revenue between $26 million and $27 million (versus guidance of $23 million to $25 million) and net loss between $2.5 million and $3.0 million (versus a net loss of less than $8 million). The preliminary results exceeded our prior revenue estimate of $24.2 million and net loss estimate of $8.4 million. The company also announced an ATM agreement under which the company could raise up to $10 million to fund product development for grid products, to collateralize performance bonds on future customer contracts, as well as for working capital. We believe activity using the company's superconductor wire in new solutions such as its resilient electric grid (REG) solution is beginning to heat up and is the main reason for putting the ATM in place."
