FuelCell Energy (FCEL) to Report Q4 Earnings: What to Expect

FuelCell Energy Inc. FCEL is slated to release fourth-quarter fiscal 2021 results on Dec 29. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered an earnings surprise of 20%.

Let’s see how things have shaped up for this alternate energy company prior to the earnings announcement.

Factors to Note

Its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings are expected to have gained from the increasing adoption of the fuel cell technology and proper execution of projects. During the quarter, FuelCell Energy signed an agreement with ExxonMobil to extend its ongoing collaboration on fuel cell technology by six months. The agreement will allow FuelCell Energy to continue its work relating to the capture of carbon dioxide from industrial facilities and power generation.

The company is likely to have benefited from lower capital servicing costs in the fiscal fourth quarter as FuelCell Energy reduced outstanding long-term debt during the first nine months of fiscal 2021.


The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the top and bottom lines is pegged at $20.34 million and a loss of 2 cents per share, respectively. The top- and bottom-line estimates indicate year-over-year growth of 19.7% and 75%, respectively.
