Notably, the company said it made a profit of $3.23 million in Q3, or 2 cents per share, compared to a loss of $37.1 million, or 32 cents per share, in the year-earlier period. The numbers were significantly higher than Wall Street’s expected loss of 8 cents per share.

Fluence’s CEO Julian Nebreda said the first profitable quarter represented “a transformative milestone” for the company. “This momentous achievement is a testament to our unwavering commitment to operational excellence, and to our team’s relentless dedication,” he said.

Nebreda was appointed Fluence’s CEO in September 2022 and said at the time he would aim to deliver “profitable growth.” Under his leadership, the energy firm achieved this milestone, although in exchange for less ambitious growth targets.

Specifically, Fluence Energy expects revenue from $2.7 billion to $3.3 billion for the full fiscal 2024, representing growth of 22-50%, notably lower than the 83% increase seen in the 2023 fiscal year. Analysts expected full-year revenue of $2.77 billion.

Meanwhile, the company said it has addressed all its battery needs for 2024 and 2025. Today, it is the second-largest battery storage system integrator by deployed projects after Sungrow. The company struck numerous order deals for battery storage projects in September, including a 4-hour duration project in Ireland, two 2-hour systems for UK’s Varco Energy, and a project for Tilt Renewables in Australia.
