Summary

  • Tilt Renewables Ltd reported muted earnings for the year ended 31 March 2021.
  • Tilt’s net profit after tax (NPAT) fell 86% to AU$67 million.
  • EBITDAF was down AU$74.9 million from $117.5 million in FY2020.

Tilt Renewables Ltd (ASX:TLT) on Thursday reported muted earnings for the year ended 31 March 2021 on account of fiscal 2021 being a transition year following the sale of the 270MW Snowtown 2 Wind Farm (SWF2) in the prior period, combined with the boost in operations at Dundonnell and Waipipi.

The electricity generation company’s net profit after tax (NPAT) fell 86% to AU$67 million, while EBITDAF was down AU$74.9 million from $117.5 million in FY2020. With 29% gearing on 31 March 2021 and no debt refinancing requirements until 2023, TLT retained the debt headroom and flexibility to support the large development pipeline.

In Australia, commissioning revenue from Dundonnell partially offset the loss of SWF2 production and softer spot prices. In New Zealand, earnings from Waipipi, which commenced commissioning in November 2020, more than offset the lower earnings from the existing New Zealand assets.
