FuelCell Energy Inc (NASDAQ:FCEL) is trading lower Wednesday morning after the company announced worse-than-expected fiscal fourth-quarter financial results.

FuelCell reported a quarterly earnings loss of 7 cents per share, which came in below the estimate for a loss of 4 cents per share. The company reported quarterly revenue of $13.9 million, which came in below the estimate of $21.86 million and was down from 17 million year-over-year.

Few continued, "We finished fiscal year 2021 with slightly lower revenue compared to fiscal year 2020, but we continued to make important progress on our in-flight projects as well as new technology and applications under development, such as the successful demonstration of the effectiveness of our solid oxide fuel cell."
