“Our strong execution enabled us to meet our financial goals for the quarter despite the continued challenging industry conditions,” said Tom Werner, SunPower president and CEO. “Our distributed generation business remains a key driver of our performance as demand for our complete solution products in both our residential and commercial segments remains robust. In power plant, we expect to deliver more than 500 MW of projects in the second half of this year. We are also seeing growing traction in our global SunPower® Solutions business as we booked or contracted more than 250 megawatts (MW) of agreements in the quarter. Operationally, we achieved our cost reduction targets for the quarter. Fab utilization is at 100 percent and we expect to remain fully utilized for the balance of the year. We also continued the successful ramp of our P-Series product in Mexico while starting initial P-Series production at our recently announced Chinese joint venture facility. Finally, we are benefitting from our investments in our next generation cell and module technology as we recently produced our first panels utilizing this technology on our new, leading-edge manufacturing line at our Silicon Valley research facility.

“Strategically, we continue to believe that our restructuring program will enable us to successfully navigate the current market transition while positioning us for improved financial performance. In the near-term, our focus remains on maximizing cash flow through project sales, lower operating expenses, and the potential monetization of non-core assets. In relation to 8point3 Energy Partners, our strategic review process is continuing, but we have received significant initial interest in the acquisition of our general partnership stake or in the sale of the entire partnership. Thus, we have made the decision not to actively seek a





replacement partner for First Solar and to focus our efforts on the monetization of our ownership stake in the partnership. In the event we complete a sale of our ownership stake in 8point3, we believe the proceeds will provide us with additional resources to deleverage our balance sheet and retire our 2018 convertible bonds to minimize shareholder dilution and continue to execute on our restructuring plan.   Additionally, depending on market conditions, we may have the opportunity to refinance our 2018 convertible bonds as well. We have also recently offered our Boulder Solar 1 project to 8point3 and potentially will offer other Right of First Offer (ROFO) projects to the partnership as well. In the event the partnership waives its rights to acquire these projects, we would sell them to third parties. In either case, we expect the sale of these ROFO projects to generate additional cash proceeds to fund our growth initiatives.

“Looking forward, we will continue to invest in innovative technologies and allocate resources to those areas that offer significant growth opportunities including our next generation cell and module technology, our complete solution product suite, energy storage, digital platforms and Smart Energy strategy, as we believe these initiatives will best position the company for long-term success. Also, our more focused approach to our power plant development activities will allow us to further invest in our leadership position in our distributed generation segments while building continuing momentum in our SunPower Solutions business. We expect these initiatives will improve our competitive position, strengthen our balance sheet and enable us to return to long-term sustained profitability.” concluded Werner.

“Our second quarter results reflect our ability to execute on our diversified model in a challenging industry environment while benefitting from our corporate restructuring initiatives,” said Chuck Boynton, SunPower chief financial officer. “In the near term, we continue to remain focused on prudently managing our working capital and strengthening our balance sheet. With our decision to monetize our ownership of 8point3 and expected additional non-core asset sales, we anticipate having the resources to retire our 2018 convertible bond while continuing to invest in our strategic initiatives. Given our restructuring, flexible business model and demonstrated continued support from Total, we believe we are well positioned for the future.”

Second quarter fiscal 2017 non-GAAP results include net adjustments that, in the aggregate, decreased (increased) non-GAAP net loss by $44.5 million, including $2.5 million related to 8point3 Energy Partners, $2.4 million related to utility and power plant projects, $8.6 million related to stock-based compensation expense, $4.2 million related to amortization of intangible assets, $5.0 million related to restructuring expense, $21.8 million related to cost of above-market polysilicon, $(0.4) million related to other adjustments, and $0.4 million related to tax effect.

Financial Outlook
The company is updating its fiscal year 2017 revenue and gigawatt (GW) deployed guidance. The company now expects revenue of $1.9 billion to $2.1 billion on a GAAP basis and $2.1 billion to $2.3 billion on a non-GAAP basis with GW deployed in the range of 1.3 GW to 1.45 GW. This change is due to project schedule adjustments in Mexico to allow for improved project economics. Additionally, the company now expects lower than forecasted GAAP restructuring charges which will be in the range of $20 million to $60 million for the year. The balance of the company’s previously disclosed fiscal year 2017 guidance remains unchanged: non-GAAP operational expenses of less than $350 million and capital expenditures of approximately $120 million. Additionally, the company continues to expect to generate positive operating cash flow through the end of fiscal year 2017 and exit the year with approximately $300 million in cash excluding any proceeds from the potential divestiture of non-core assets. The company is also forecasting positive Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2017 and continues to believe that cash flow and liquidity remain the key evaluation metrics for investors in the near term.

The company’s third quarter fiscal 2017 GAAP guidance is as follows: revenue of $300 million to $350 million, gross margin of negative 3 percent to negative 1 percent and net loss of $120 million to $100 million. Third quarter 2017 GAAP guidance includes the impact of the company’s HoldCo asset strategy and revenue and timing deferrals due to real estate accounting as well as the impact of charges related to the company’s restructuring initiatives. On a non-GAAP basis, the company expects revenue of $320 million to $370 million, gross margin of 5 percent to 7 percent, Adjusted EBITDA of breakeven to $20 million and megawatts deployed in the range of 405 MW to 435 MW.

The company expects to deliver more than 500 MW of power plant projects in the second half of the year with a significant majority to be recognized in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The company will host a conference call for investors this afternoon to discuss its second quarter 2017 performance at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time. The call will be webcast and can be accessed from SunPower’s website at http://investors.sunpower.com/events.cfm .

This press release contains both GAAP and non-GAAP financial information. Non-GAAP figures are reconciled to the closest GAAP equivalent categories in the financial attachment of this press release. Please note that the company has posted supplemental information and slides related to its first quarter 2017 performance on the Events and Presentations section of





SunPower’s Investor Relations page at http://investors.sunpower.com/events.cfm . The capacity of power plants in this release is described in approximate megawatts on a direct current (dc) basis unless otherwise noted.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures that are adjusted for certain items from the most directly comparable GAAP measures, as described below. The specific non-GAAP measures listed below are: revenue; gross margin; net income (loss); net income (loss) per diluted share; and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”). Management believes that each of these non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, enabling them to better assess changes in each of these key elements of the company's results of operations across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of certain items as described below. Thus, each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with another method to assess the company's operating results in a manner that is focused on its ongoing, core operating performance, absent the effects of these items. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to assess the business, its financial performance, current and historical results, as well as for strategic decision-making and forecasting future results. Many of the analysts covering the company also use these non-GAAP measures in their analyses. Given management's use of these non-GAAP measures, the company believes these measures are important to investors in understanding the company's operating results as seen through the eyes of management. These non-GAAP measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP or intended to be a replacement for GAAP financial data; the non-GAAP measures should be reviewed together with the GAAP measures and are not intended to serve as a substitute for results under GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Non-GAAP revenue includes adjustments relating to 8point3, utility and power plant projects, the sale of operating lease assets, and sale-leaseback transactions, each as described below. In addition to those same adjustments, Non-GAAP gross margin includes adjustments relating to stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, non-cash interest expense, arbitration ruling, cost of above-market polysilicon, and other items, each as described below. In addition to those same adjustments, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share are adjusted for adjustments relating to restructuring expense, IPO-related costs, and the tax effect of these non-GAAP adjustments as described below. In addition to the same adjustments as non-GAAP net income (loss), Adjusted EBITDA includes adjustments relating to cash interest expense (net of interest income), provision for (benefit from) income taxes, and depreciation.

Non-GAAP Adjustments Based on International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”)

The company’s non-GAAP results include adjustments to recognize revenue and profit under IFRS that are consistent with the adjustments made in connection with the company’s reporting process as part of its status as a consolidated subsidiary of Total S.A., a foreign public registrant which reports under IFRS. Differences between GAAP and IFRS reflected in the company’s non-GAAP results are further described below. In these situations, management believes that IFRS enables investors to better evaluate the company’s revenue and profit generation performance, and assists in aligning the perspectives of our management and noncontrolling shareholders with those of Total S.A., our controlling shareholder.

8point3. In 2015, 8point3 Energy Partners LP ("8point3 Energy Partners"), a joint YieldCo vehicle, was formed by the company and First Solar, Inc. ("First Solar" and, together with the company, the "Sponsors") to own, operate and acquire solar energy generation assets. Class A shares of 8point3 Energy Partners are now listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the trading symbol “CAFD.” Immediately after the IPO, the company contributed a portfolio of 170 MW of its solar generation assets (the “SPWR Projects”) to 8point3 Operating Company, LLC ("OpCo"), 8point3 Energy Partners' primary operating subsidiary. In exchange for the SPWR Projects, the company received cash proceeds as well as equity interests in several 8point3 Energy Partners affiliated entities: primarily common and subordinated units representing a 40.7% stake in OpCo and a 50.0% economic and management stake in 8point3 Holding Company, LLC (“Holdings”), the parent company of the general partner of 8point3 Energy Partners and the owner of incentive distribution rights in OpCo. Holdings, OpCo, 8point3 Energy Partners and their respective subsidiaries are referred to herein as the “8point3 Group” or “8point3.”






The company includes adjustments related to the sales of projects contributed to 8point3 based on the difference between the fair market value of the consideration received and the net carrying value of the projects contributed, of which, a portion is deferred in proportion to the company’s retained equity stake in 8point3. The deferred profit is subsequently recognized over time. With certain exceptions such as for projects already in operation, the company’s revenue is equal to the fair market value of the consideration received, and cost of goods sold is equal to the net carrying value plus a partial deferral of profit proportionate with the retained equity stake. Under GAAP, these sales are recognized under either real estate, lease, or consolidation accounting guidance depending upon the nature of the individual asset contributed, with outcomes ranging from no, partial, or full profit recognition. IFRS profit, less deferrals associated with retained equity, is recognized for sales related to the residential lease portfolio. Revenue recognition for other projects sold to 8point3 is deferred until these projects reach commercial operations. Equity in earnings of unconsolidated investees also includes the impact of the company’s share of 8point3’s earnings related to sales of projects receiving sales recognition under IFRS but not GAAP.

Utility and power plant projects. The company includes adjustments related to the revenue recognition of certain utility and power plant projects based on percentage-of-completion accounting and, when relevant, the allocation of revenue and margin to the company’s project development efforts at the time of initial project sale. Under GAAP, such projects are accounted for under real estate accounting guidance, under which no separate allocation to the company’s project development efforts occurs and the amount of revenue and margin that is recognized may be limited in circumstances where the company has certain forms of continuing involvement in the project. Over the life of each project, cumulative revenue and gross margin will eventually be equivalent under both GAAP and IFRS; however, revenue and gross margin will generally be recognized earlier under IFRS. Within each project, the relationship between the adjustments to revenue and gross margins is generally consistent. However, as the company may have multiple utility and power plant projects in differing stages of progress at any given time, the relationship in the aggregate will occasionally appear otherwise.

Sale of operating lease assets. The company includes adjustments related to the revenue recognition on the sale of certain solar assets subject to an operating lease (or of solar assets that are leased by or intended to be leased by the third-party purchaser to another party) based on the net proceeds received from the purchaser. Under GAAP, these sales are accounted for as borrowing transactions in accordance with lease accounting guidance. Under such guidance, revenue and profit recognition is based on rental payments made by the end lessee, and the net proceeds from the purchaser are recorded as a non-recourse borrowing liability, with imputed interest expense recorded on the liability. This treatment continues until the company has transferred the substantial risks of ownership, as defined by lease accounting guidance, to the purchaser, at which point the sale is recognized.

Sale-leaseback transactions. The company includes adjustments related to the revenue recognition on certain sale-leaseback transactions based on the net proceeds received from the buyer-lessor. Under GAAP, these transactions are accounted for under the financing method in accordance with real estate accounting guidance. Under such guidance, no revenue or profit is recognized at the inception of the transaction, and the net proceeds from the buyer-lessor are recorded as a financing liability. Imputed interest is recorded on the liability equal to the company’s incremental borrowing rate adjusted solely to prevent negative amortization.

Other Non-GAAP Adjustments

Stock-based compensation. Stock-based compensation relates primarily to the company’s equity incentive awards. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense that is dependent on market forces that are difficult to predict. Management believes that this adjustment for stock-based compensation provides investors with a basis to measure the company's core performance, including compared with the performance of other companies, without the period-to-period variability created by stock-based compensation.






Amortization of intangible assets. The company incurs amortization of intangible assets as a result of acquisitions, which includes patents, purchased technology, project pipeline assets, and in-process research and development. Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude these amortization charges from the company’s non-GAAP financial measures as they arise from prior acquisitions, are not reflective of ongoing operating results, and do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of a company’s past operating performance.

Non-cash interest expense. The company incurs non-cash interest expense related to the amortization of items such as original issuance discounts on its debt. The company excludes non-cash interest expense because the expense does not reflect its financial results in the period incurred. Management believes that this adjustment for non-cash interest expense provides investors with a basis to evaluate the company's performance, including compared with the performance of other companies, without non-cash interest expense.

Restructuring expense. The company incurs restructuring expenses related to reorganization plans aimed towards realigning resources consistent with the company’s global strategy and improving its overall operating efficiency and cost structure. Restructuring charges are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities and such costs have historically occurred infrequently. Although the company has engaged in restructuring activities in the past, each has been a discrete event based on a unique set of business objectives. As such, management believes that it is appropriate to exclude restructuring charges from the company's non-GAAP financial measures as they are not reflective of ongoing operating results or contribute to a meaningful evaluation of a company's past operating performance.

Arbitration ruling. On January 28, 2015, an arbitral tribunal of the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce declared a binding partial award in the matter of an arbitration between First Philippine Electric Corporation (“FPEC”) and First Philippine Solar Corporation (“FPSC”) against SunPower Philippines Manufacturing, Ltd. (“SPML”), the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary. The tribunal found SPML in breach of its obligations under its supply agreement with FPSC, and in breach of its joint venture agreement with FPEC. The second partial and final awards dated July 14, 2015 and September 30, 2015, respectively, reduced the estimated amounts to be paid to FPEC, and on July 22, 2016, SPML entered into a settlement with FPEC and FPSC and paid a total of $50.5 million in settlement of all claims between the parties. As a result, the Company recorded its best estimate of probable loss related to this case at the time of the initial ruling and updated the estimate as circumstances warranted. As this loss is nonrecurring in nature, excluding this data provides investors with a basis to evaluate the company's performance, including compared with the performance of other companies, without similar impacts.

IPO-related costs. Costs incurred related to the IPO of 8point3 included legal, accounting, advisory, valuation, and other expenses, as well as modifications to or terminations of certain existing financing structures in preparation for the sale to 8point3. As these costs are non-recurring in nature, excluding this data provides investors with a basis to evaluate the company's performance, including compared with the performance of other companies, without similar impacts.

Cost of above-market polysilicon. The Company has entered in previous years into multiple long-term, fixed-price supply agreements to purchase polysilicon for periods of up to 10 years. The prices in these supply agreements, which incorporate a cash portion and a non-cash portion attributable to the amortization of prepayments made under the agreements, significantly exceed market prices. Additionally, in order to reduce inventory and improve working capital, the Company has periodically elected to sell polysilicon inventory in the marketplace at prices below the Company’s purchase price, thereby incurring a loss. Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude the impact of its above-market cost of polysilicon, including the effect of above-market polysilicon on product costs, losses incurred on sales of polysilicon to third parties, and inventory reserves and project asset impairments from the company's non-GAAP financial measures as they are not reflective of ongoing operating results and does not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of a company's past operating performance.






Other. The company combines amounts previously disclosed under separate captions into “Other” when amounts do not have a significant impact on the presented fiscal periods. Management believes that these adjustments provide investors with a basis to evaluate the company's performance, including compared with the performance of other companies, without similar impacts.

Tax effect. This amount is used to present each of the adjustments described above on an after-tax basis in connection with the presentation of non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share. The company's non-GAAP tax amount is based on estimated cash tax expense and reserves. The company forecasts its annual cash tax liability and allocates the tax to each quarter in a manner generally consistent with its GAAP methodology. This approach is designed to enhance investors’ ability to understand the impact of the company's tax expense on its current operations, provide improved modeling accuracy, and substantially reduce fluctuations caused by GAAP to non-GAAP adjustments, which may not reflect actual cash tax expense.

Adjusted EBITDA adjustments. When calculating Adjusted EBITDA, in addition to adjustments described above, the company excludes the impact during the period of the following items:

Cash interest expense, net of interest income
Provision for (benefit from) income taxes
Depreciation

Management presents this non-GAAP financial measure to enable investors to evaluate the company's performance, including compared with the performance of other companies.

For more information about these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures" set forth at the end of this release, which should be read together with the preceding financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

In accordance with the if-converted method, net income (loss) available to common stockholders excludes interest expense related to the 0.75%, 0.875% and 4.0% debentures if the debentures are considered converted in the calculation of net income (loss) per diluted share. If the conversion option for a debenture is not in the money for the relevant period, the potential conversion of the debenture under the if-converted method is excluded from the calculation of non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share.
