FTC Solar, Inc. FTCI is slated to report first-quarter 2022 results on May 10 before the opening bell.

In the last reported quarter, the company witnessed a negative earnings surprise of 41.67%. In the trailing four quarters, FTC Solar delivered a negative earnings surprise of 32.77%, on average.

Factors to Note

FTC Solar’s newly launched turnkey DG offering is anticipated to have favorably impacted FTCI’s top line in the soon-to-be-reported quarter. Additionally, the continued strong customer growth in engineering, procurement and construction is expected to have added impetus to its top line.

However, revenues may have been impacted by seasonality and variability related to the timing of construction activity.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for first-quarter revenues is pegged at $57 million, suggesting a decline of 13.3% from the year-ago reported figure.

From the cost perspective, escalated overhead expenses, along with higher logistics, may have adversely impacted its first-quarter earnings. However, higher-margin offerings by FTC Solar, along with various cost control measures, may have partially offset the adverse cost impact on its first-quarter earnings.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for FTCI’s first-quarter earningsis pegged at a loss of 12 cents per share,suggesting deteriorationfrom the year-ago quarter’s reported figure.
