MACCLESFIELD, UK, November 13, 2018 -- EuroSite Power Inc. (OTCPK: EUSP, the "Company") an On-Site Utility solutions provider, offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling solutions to healthcare, hospitality, housing and leisure centers in the United Kingdom (UK) and Europe, reported third quarter revenues increased 4.1% to $767,020 compared to $ 736,474 for the third quarter 2017. Underlying this result was a 17.5% increase in energy revenue which saw third quarter energy revenue total $ 759,730 compared to $ 646,590 for the same period in 2017. Gross Profit for the third quarter 2018 increased by 71.7% to $ 221,981 when compared to $ 129,313 for the same period in 2017, the result of gross margin increasing from 17.6% for third quarter 2017 to 28.9% for third quarter 2018. Significantly the Company’s UK subsidiary has now reported positive EBITDA in each of the 12 months ending September 30, 2018.

Commenting on the quarter’s results UK Managing Director, Paul Hamblyn said, “The fact the UK has now achieved positive EBITDA for 12 months straight demonstrates that we have turned a corner”. Mr Hamblyn added, “The OSU fleet continues to outperform the prior year, despite an unseasonably hot summer doing its best to depress the need for heat. In particular, the improved reliability of the Tecogen fleet helped boost performance compared to last year and with winter approaching we can reasonably expect to see continued improvement in OSU fleet performance”.

Commenting on the Company’s strategic objectives Dr. Elias Samaras, Chief Executive Officer said, “Progress to broaden the spectrum of our offer has begun. In addition, management has focus on organic growth both within the UK and across Europe such that our pipeline is improving with many exciting opportunities giving rise to optimism for 2019”. Dr Samaras went on to say, “The UK operation’s solid third quarter performance helped ensure that for the first time the Company’s non-GAAP EBITDA was positive for the 9 months to the end of September”.
