Explanatory Note

On November 5, 2018, SunPower Corporation (the “Company”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a current report on Form 8-K (the “Original Form 8-K”) for the purpose of announcing a joint venture entered into by the Company with certain affiliates of Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital, Inc. to acquire, own, manage, operate, finance, and maintain a portfolio of residential rooftop or ground-mounted solar photovoltaic electric generating systems (the “Transaction”). In connection with the Transaction, the Company will deconsolidate certain entities that have historically held the assets and liabilities comprising its residential lease business. On November 9, 2018, the Company filed on Form 8-K/A an amendment to the Original Form 8-K (“Amendment No. 1”) to correct certain dates associated with the Transaction and to include the unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial information required by Item 9.01(b) of Form 8-K.

This amendment (“Amendment No. 2”) corrects the description of assumption of debt service obligations in connection with the Transaction and as well as historical adjustments and pro forma adjustments to certain balances presented in the unaudited pro forma condensed balance sheet, each as reported in Amendment No. 1.

















































Item 9.01
Financial Statements and Exhibits.
    
(b) Pro Forma Financial Information.

In Amendment No. 1, the Company inaccurately stated that HA SunStrong Capital LLC assumed all current and future debt service obligations associated with certain mezzanine loans in connection with the Purchase and Sale Agreement, whereas SunStrong Capital Holdings, LLC actually assumed such obligations. In addition, in Amendment No. 1, the Company incorrectly reported historical adjustments to long-term debt and accumulated deficit of $442,925 and $217,811, respectively and pro forma adjustments to accumulated deficit and noncontrolling interests in subsidiaries of $58,016 and $10,040, respectively, on the unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2018. Instead, the historical adjustments to long-term debt and accumulated deficit should be $550,494 and $110,242, respectively, and pro forma adjustments to accumulated deficit and noncontrolling interests in subsidiaries should be $47,976 and zero, respectively.

The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial information of the Company giving effect to the Transaction for the year ended December 31, 2017 and as of and for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 are filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1.

Exhibit


On November 5, 2018, the Company reported entry into a joint venture with certain affiliates of Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital, Inc. to acquire, own, manage, operate, finance, and maintain a portfolio of residential rooftop or ground-mounted solar photovoltaic electric generating systems (the “Transaction”). On November 9, 2018, the Company filed on Form 8-K/A an amendment to the original Form 8-K (“Amendment No. 1”) to correct certain dates associated with the Transaction and to include the unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial information required by Item 9.01(b) of Form 8-K. This amendment (“Amendment No. 2”) corrects the following:

The name of the entity assuming the current and future debt service obligations associated with both the Mezzanine Loan 1 and Mezzanine Loan 2 from HA SunStrong Parent to Sunstrong (as each capitalized term is defined herein), and
The historical adjustments to long-term debt and accumulated deficit balances and the pro forma adjustments to accumulated deficit and noncontrolling interests in subsidiaries presented in the unaudited pro forma condensed balance sheet reported in Amendment No. 1.

In connection with the Transaction, the Company will deconsolidate certain entities that have historically held the assets and liabilities comprising its residential lease business (the "Residential Lease Portfolio").    

The following unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial information of the Company is derived from the Company's historical consolidated financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto appearing in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 and the unaudited financial statements and notes thereto appearing in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2018. The accompanying unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated statements of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 are presented as if the Transaction, as discussed in Item 9.01 of the 8-K/A, had been completed as of January 1, 2018 and January 2, 2017, respectively. The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated balance sheet is presented as if the disposition had been completed as of September 30, 2018. The unaudited pro forma financial statements reflect the Transaction as an adjustment to the consolidated as reported balance sheet and consolidated as reported statements of operations, as the Transaction qualifies as significant in accordance with Regulation S-X Section 210.11-01(b)(2).

The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial information has been presented for informational purposes only and is not indicative of any future results of operations or the results that might have occurred if the disposition had actually been completed on the indicated dates. The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial statements are based on management's estimate of the effects on the financial statements of the Transaction. Pro forma adjustments are based on currently available information, historical results and certain assumptions that management believes are reasonable and described in the accompanying notes.

The unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated financial statements do not include earnings on proceeds and related tax effects that result directly from the Transaction, which will be included in the Company's operating results in future periods.

On November 5, 2018, the Company and HA SunStrong Capital LLC (“HA SunStrong Parent”), entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “PSA”), which will have the effect of deconsolidating a substantial majority of the Company’s Residential Lease Portfolio, as part of the Company’s previously announced decision to sell a portion of its interest in its portfolio of residential lease assets. Pursuant to the PSA, the Company sold to HA SunStrong Parent, in exchange for consideration of $10.0 million, membership units representing a 49.0% membership interest in SunStrong Capital Holdings, LLC (“SunStrong”), formerly a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

On August 10, 2018, SunStrong Capital Acquisition, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SunStrong (“Mezzanine Loan 1 Borrower”), and SunStrong Capital Lender LLC, a subsidiary of Hannon Armstrong, entered into a mezzanine loan agreement under which Mezzanine Loan 1 Borrower borrowed a subordinated, mezzanine loan of $110.5 million (the “Mezzanine Loan 1”) and incurred issuance costs of $0.8 million related to the loan. On August 31, 2018, the Company repaid a principal amount of $2.1 million that resulted in an adjusted Mezzanine Loan 1 balance, net of issuance costs, of $107.5 million. On November 5, 2018, SunStrong Capital Acquisition OF, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SunStrong (“Mezzanine Loan 2 Borrower”), and SunStrong Capital Lender 2 LLC, a subsidiary of Hannon Armstrong, entered into a loan agreement under which, Mezzanine Loan 2 Borrower may borrow a subordinated, mezzanine loan of up to $32.0 million (the “Mezzanine Loan 2”). The borrowing facilities provided by the Mezzanine Loan 2 have been determined in consideration of the residential lease assets under construction as of November 5, 2018 and the expectation of placing such assets in service. On November 20, 2018, Mezzanine Loan 2 Borrower is expected to borrow approximately $24.6 million. Mezzanine Loan 2 Borrower is expected to draw approximately $5.8 million against the Mezzanine Loan 2 of which $3.4 million were associated with residential lease assets for which construction was completed at the close of the Transaction. In connection with the execution of the PSA, SunStrong assumed all current and future debt service obligations associated with both the Mezzanine Loan 1 and Mezzanine Loan 2.

On November 5, 2018, the cash that will be generated from the sale of future solar renewable energy credits along with equity interests held by SunStrong in the underlying project companies were pledged to secure a warehousing loan from Credit





Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank (“Credit Agricole”). Borrowed Sunshine, LLC, (“CA Loan Borrower”) formerly a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into a loan agreement with Credit Agricole on January 5, 2018 under which the CA Loan Borrower may borrow a subordinated loan of up to $170.0 million. As of November 5, 2018, the CA Loan Borrower had borrowed approximately $97.0 million and this debt will be assumed by SunStrong under the terms of the PSA. The CA Loan Borrower expects to draw an additional amount of approximately $19.1 million and this amount will be distributed to the Company as a special distribution in conjunction with completing certain residential solar systems subject to leases that were under construction at the close of the Transaction. Of the $19.1 million, $9.7 million were associated with residential lease assets for which construction was completed at the close of the Transaction. The special distribution to the Company is expected to be made before the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

The expected additional draw on Mezzanine Loan 2 and the distribution from the warehousing loan from Credit Agricole associated with residential lease assets for which construction was completed at the close of the Transaction are collectively referred as the "Contingent Consideration".

Other costs and expenses associated with the Transaction include professional services including legal, advisory and banking support.

(c) These adjustments reflect net assets that would have been acquired by the purchaser at September 30, 2018.

(d) This adjustment represents an estimated liability associated with certain warranty obligations for defects in materials and workmanship related to installed systems for the residential lease assets business which the Company retained. The estimated liability is approximately $4.4 million.

(e) Following the closing of the PSA, the Company retained a 51% membership interest in SunStrong. The Company estimates the fair value of the retained interest using an income approach based the discounted cash flows expected to be distributed to the Company in proportion to its membership interests, following other priority payments and distributions pursuant to the terms of the Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Operating Agreement of SunStrong.

SunPower Capital Services, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“SunPower Services”) acts as the lease servicer to the various project companies under lease servicing agreements. SunPower Services earned lease servicing fees of $3.5 million and $3.4 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2017 and 9 months ended September 30, 2018, respectively.

SunPower Corporation, Systems provides the project companies with operations and maintenance services under a separate management services agreement. SunPower Corporation, Systems earned operations and maintenance services fees of $5.7 million for both the 12 months ended December 31, 2017 and 9 months ended September 30, 2018.

The lease servicing and operations and maintenance services fees were previously eliminated in connection with consolidation given the residential lease entities were consolidated subsidiaries of the Company. Pursuant to the PSA, the Company sold a portion of its interest of the entities holding the residential lease assets and will continue to earn lease servicing and operations and maintenance services fees.

On November 5, 2018 (the "Commencement Date"), SunPower Services and SunStrong entered into a management agreement whereby SunPower Services will provide all day-to-day management including, collection and other management services, monitoring, operational performance and maintenance of the solar assets by the maintenance services provider, administering communications with and providing reporting to tax equity investors with respect to their investments in the solar assets, and compliance with the respective obligations of SunStrong’s subsidiaries with the related project documents. SunPower Services shall receive a service fee in the amount of $50,000 for the period from the Commencement Date to the six-month anniversary of the Commencement Date, and thereafter $375,000 annually. Fees for the management agreement are reflected as adjustments to pro forma revenue.
