"Strong demand for our microinverter systems in our core U.S. residential market, as well as in the U.K. and Australia, continued to drive our business momentum into the second quarter, resulting in a 41 percent increase in revenue year-over-year," said Paul Nahi, CEO of Enphase Energy. "The solar industry is experiencing strong growth, and Enphase is leading the way with our innovative microinverter system, providing higher power generation, ease of installation and best-in-class monitoring capabilities."

"I am extremely pleased with our financial performance in the second quarter," said Kris Sennesael, CFO of Enphase Energy. "The accelerated growth in demand for our microinverter system enabled us to achieve record-breaking results in our top line performance, further increase our gross margin to a record level, and achieve another quarter of positive non-GAAP operating income."

Business Outlook

"We expect the top line growth to further accelerate in the third quarter," stated Mr. Sennesael. "We expect revenue for the third quarter of 2014 to be within a range of $93 million to $98 million. At the midpoint of the revenue outlook range, revenue would be up 54 percent, compared to the third quarter of 2013. We expect gross margin to be within a range of 32 percent to 34 percent. We also expect non-GAAP operating expenses for the third quarter of 2014 to be approximately flat to up 4 percent, compared to the second quarter of 2014, as we continue to invest in the Company's growth."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has presented certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either exclude or include amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP. Reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure can be found in the accompanying tables to this press release. These non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, differ from GAAP measures with the same captions and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar captions that are used by other companies. As such, these non-GAAP measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures to analyze its operating performance and future prospects, develop internal budgets and financial goals, and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. Enphase believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of its operations that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business.
