US solar microinverters maker Enphase Energy Inc (NASDAQ:ENPH) turned to a net loss of USD 47.3 million (EUR 39.9m) in the second quarter of 2020 from a profit of USD 10.6 million a year back.
The company noted that the negative result takes into account a non-cash charge of USD 59.7 million from fair value changes related to its convertible notes from March 2020 because of an increase in the price of its stock.
Enphase’s Q2 revenue declined by about 6.3% year-on-year, but gross margin rose to 38.5% from 33.8% and even to a record 39.6% on a non-GAAP basis. The company shipped roughly 1.09 million microinverters during the three-month period, or about 355 MW in direct current (DC).
