SeeNews Renewables  


    August 3 (Renewables Now) - Israel-based inverter supplier SolarEdge Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:SEDG) saw its second-quarter GAAP net profit shrink by 67% in annual terms even as it posted record-high revenues, boosted by strong demand in the solar photovoltaic (PV) segment.

    The company registered a bottom line of USD 15.1 million (EUR 14.8m), which declined both sequentially and in annual terms due to a rise in costs, its financial report showed on Tuesday. Thanks to growing sales in Europe and the US, SolarEdge enjoyed a 59% year-on-year jump in revenues at its solar segment, which was responsible for the bulk of its total revenues in the reporting period, totalling USD 727.8 million.

    Chief executive officer Zvi Lando pointed out that the company is still struggling with supply chain challenges.

    More details about SolarEdge’s financial performance are given in the table.
