| SPI Energy is a provider of photovoltaic (PV) solutions for business, residential, government and utility customers and investors. Co. develops solar PV projects that are either sold to third party operators or owned and operated by Co. for selling of electricity to the grid in several countries in Asia, North America and Europe. Co.'s solar projects include: projects in operation, which refers to projects connected to the grid and selling electricity; projects under construction, which refers to projects at the construction stage; and projects in pipeline, which refers to projects that Co. has entered into definitive agreements to develop with a third party, and to acquire. We show 6 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our SPI shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute SPI market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing SPI market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing SPI's market cap history versus its peers.
Many "beginner" or "novice" investors will look at one stock trading at a price of $10 per share and another trading at
a price of $20 per share and think the latter company is worth twice as much. Of course, that is a completely meaningless comparison without also knowing how many shares outstanding there are for each of the two companies,
and then calculating their respective market caps. Comparing the share price of SPI versus a peer is one thing; comparing
SPI market cap versus a peer is a completely different story.
Furthermore, via fluctuation both in per-share price and in the number of shares outstanding (via issuance of new shares over time, the repurchase of existing shares),
the market cap for a company like SPI can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching SPI by allowing them to research the SPI market cap history.
