Q3 Financial Results

Revenues increased to $966 million from $867 million a year earlier but missed analysts’ expectations of $1.01 billion.

FFO came in at $0.36 per share, higher than the $0.31 per share reported in the third quarter of last year and the Street’s estimate of a loss of $0.04 per share. The rise was driven by high levels of asset availability and new acquisitions.

The Hydroelectric segment’s FFO totaled $142 million; the Wind and Solar segments generated a combined FFO of $130 million; and the Energy Transition segment’s FFO amounted to $48 million.

CEO Comments

Brookfield Renewable’s CEO, Connor Teskey, said, “We generated record third-quarter FFO, and executed on several growth opportunities that demonstrate the value of our global platform, deploying capital across multiple technologies and jurisdictions, enhancing our position as a leading diversified clean energy business.

“As decarbonization of the global economy continues to move to the forefront, we are well-positioned to capture the growing opportunity while earning strong returns for our investors.”
