TerraForm Power, whose asset base includes 102MW of solar photovoltaic capacity in Chile, said in an investor presentation that it expects to report a full-year loss of between US$105mn and US$145mn for this year, versus a loss of US$208mn in 2015.

The company highlighted that its 2015 results are still under review and subject to change.

The projected 2016 results "are in-line with management expectations post SunEdison bankruptcy," TerraForm Power said in a statement.

TerraForm Global, which owns 307MW of wind capacity in Brazil and a 26MW solar farm in Uruguay, among other assets, said in a separate presentation it is projecting a net loss of between US$11mn and US$51mn for 2016.

The presentations follow media reports that Brookfield Asset Management is in talks to acquire TerraForm Power and, possibly, TerraForm Global.
