SAN DIEGO, May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), (the “Company”), the leading provider of innovative sustainable products and technologies for electric vehicle (EV) charging, energy storage, energy security and outdoor media, today announced the financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Fiscal Q1 2022 and Recent Company Highlights

  • Q1 22 system deliveries 250% higher than Q1 21
  • Grew pipeline to a new record of over $100M
  • Reduced the gross loss in Q1 2022 by 3 percentage points, compared to Q1 2021, in spite of inflationary pressures
  • Closed the strategic acquisition of All Cell Technologies, LLC (All Cell), an energy storage leader, which is expected to secure vital battery supply, reduce battery costs for Beam, and increase Company revenues
  • Received a $2.4 million order from mobile EV charging company SparkCharge for Beam AllCell™ battery products

“We continue to make advances across all areas of our business with new records in revenues, product deliveries and, perhaps most importantly, pipeline,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Beam. “Deliveries and new opportunities in the quarter came from government and commercial sectors and we anticipate strong continued growth from both. Operationally we are more efficient and producing product at a faster rate than at any time in our history. Our acquisition of a battery technology company makes us unique in the industry and will, I believe, further improve our efficiency and profitability. Improving our gross margins at a time of historically high inflation is a powerful testament that our cost management efforts are paying off. The combination of all these factors bodes well for an excellent 2022 for Beam Global.”

First Fiscal Quarter 2022 Financial Summary

Revenues
Beam Global reported record quarterly revenues in the first fiscal quarter of 2022 of $3.8 million, compared to $1.4 million in the same period in the prior year, an increase of 175%. Revenues included $0.4 million for battery storage devices as a result of closing the acquisition of All Cell in early May. Shortly following the closing, Beam received a $2.4 million order for Beam AllCell™ battery products.

Gross Loss
Gross loss in the quarter ended March 31, 2022 was $0.3 million compared to $0.1 million for the same period in the prior year. As a percentage of sales, the gross loss improved by three percentage points reflecting favorable fixed overhead absorption and improved labor efficiency due to the increase in production levels. This was partially offset by an increase in material costs for steel and other components due to supply chain shortages and other inflationary pressures.

Operating Expenses
Operating Expenses were $2.0 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared to $1.1 million for the same period in the prior year. The increases were primarily due to the addition of All Cell expenses, increased sales and marketing expense to support revenue growth, increased legal and accounting services partially due to the acquisition, and other increases.

Cash and Working Capital
At March 31, 2022, we had cash of $19.2 million, compared to $21.9 million at December 31, 2021. The cash decrease was primarily from operating activities and the purchase of working capital from All Cell. Our working capital decreased from $24.6 million to $21.8 million from December 31, 2021 to March 31, 2022.
