08:20 EDTSCTYSolarCity finds error in expenses, says adjustments don't impact key metrics
SolarCity announced that there will be a reallocation of overhead expenses from leased systems to system sales, which will affect the 2013 and 2012 GAAP financial statements. SolarCity said, "During an internal review of fourth quarter financial statements, we discovered an error in the formula for allocating overhead expenses between Operating Lease assets and the cost of Solar Energy System Sales originating in Q1 2012. We reported this to our auditors, who agreed with our assessment that a correction needed to be made. It is important to note that overhead expenses in total will not be amended and that these changes do not affect the net cash flows or any forward financial guidance of the company." The GAAP impact is expected to be a downward adjustment on the balance sheet primarily in Solar Energy Systems, Leased and to Be Leased of approximately 2.5%-3.0% as of September 30, 2013. The company also expects an increase in the cost of Solar Energy Systems Sales of approximately $16M-$20M on the statement of operations for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013 and an increase of approximately $20M-$23M to the same line item for the full-year 2012, while the company is currently evaluating the materiality of the impact on 2011. There is no change to net cash flows. SolarCity said its cash balance was $577.1M as of December 31, 2013. The company said these adjustments have no impact on the key operating metrics already reported, including estimated nominal contracted payments remaining as of the end of 2013 was $1.99B, retained value forecast as of the end of 2013 was $1.05B, and full-year guidance MW deployed of 475 MW-525 MW and positive net cash flow in 2014 is reiterated. Final, audited statements will be filed on or before Tuesday, March 18, the company said.

11:09 EDTSCTYGoldman says SolarCity attractive after sharp pullback
SolarCity (SCTY) shares are climbing in the down market after Goldman Sachs contended in a note to investors today that the stock is attractive following its recent sharp retreat, The company probably won't be affected by issues that are causing investors to worry about the solar sector, the firm believes. WHAT'S NEW: Noting that SolarCity's stock had tumbled 27% in the last month before today's open, Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee wrote that the shares are being dragged down by worries about financing and cost of capital that are affecting the entire solar sector. However, he contended that these issues are having only a "limited" impact on SolarCity. On August 13, the company successfully sold asset-backed securities and it said that more such sales are likely to occur in the near-term, Lee noted. Meanwhile, SolarCity isn't being affected by the cost of capital increases that other solar companies are experiencing, the analyst reported. Before today's open, the stock was near a two year low, even though SolarCity's fundamentals are still "strong," Lee believes. Additionally, the largest U.S. solar trade show, which is expected to begin on September 14, could boost solar stocks, as it has historically been a catalyst for the sector, the analyst stated. SolarCity may provide guidance about the outlook for its Silevo solar panel manufacturing subsidiary in the second half of 2015, and the guidance could boost the stock, Lee believes. The risk/reward ratio of SolarCity's stock is positive, according to the analyst, who has a Conviction List Buy and $85 price target on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the solar space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunEdison (SUNE), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SolarCity advanced 5.3% to $43.18.
