Plug Power to meet 2014 revenue guidance?
Shen noted, “Overall, we came away more confident that PLUG can meet its 2014 revenue guidance and bookings target. While the company appears to be reaching a true inflection point with large customers, we still worry about valuation and investor expectations getting ahead of guidance”. He continued, “In our view, body language was positive on shipment execution during Q2/Q3. We believe PLUG is targeting deployment at four sites during Q3, which would imply shipments of ~1,000 units (assuming 250 units per site) vs. ROTHe of 850 units. As a result we have greater confidence in our Q2 revenue estimate of $16.9mn and see potential for upside to our Q3 revenue estimate. PLUG continues to expect $150mn in bookings during 2014, with $80mn booked through Apr’14?.
