SAN DIEGO, March 30, 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 fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

Fiscal 2021 and Recent Company Highlights

  • 134% growth in new orders year-over-year
  • 67% growth in system deliveries year-over-year

  • Received the largest single order in company history of 52 units
  • Beam EV charging systems are now in 29 U.S. states
  • Expanded non-government sales among business sectors including automotive, commercial real estate, construction, travel and entertainment, pharmaceuticals and education
  • Increased sales to utilities
  • Received first battery order of $2.3 million within weeks of the acquisition of AllCell Technologies
  • Set the world record for the longest flight in a production electric aircraft, charged exclusively by transportable, off-grid EV ARC™ systems

“2021 was a year in which we broke record after record,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Beam. “Most importantly, we had material improvements in sales, revenues, deliveries and performance. At the same time, we reduced our costs as a percentage of revenues during the most severe inflationary period in over forty years. We are now seeing dramatic increases in spending on EVs and EV charging infrastructure in the US and internationally so I anticipate that all the positive trends we put in place in 2021 will continue and accelerate in 2022. Acquiring AllCell Technologies uniquely positions us in the industry as the only provider with a proprietary energy storage solution and at the same time it will dramatically reduce our costs. I believe we are very well positioned for 2022.”   

Fiscal Year End 2021 Financial Summary

Revenues
Beam Global reported record revenues in fiscal 2021 of $9,001,751, compared to $6,210,350 in fiscal 2020, an increase of 45%. In the fourth quarter the Company generated revenues of $3,487,649, a 56% increase over $2,200,706 in the fourth quarter of 2020. The Company invested in sales and marketing resources during the past two years to expand its outreach and increase brand awareness. This has resulted in more opportunities, including increased interest and orders from federal agencies. We also received a 52-unit order from the State of California, making renewable charging more available throughout the state.

Gross Loss
Gross loss in fiscal 2021 was $971,644, or 10.8% of sales, compared to $710,974, or 11.4% of sales during fiscal 2020. The gross loss in the fourth quarter of 2021 was $340,624, or 9.8% of sales, compared to $537,937, or 24.4% of sales in the fourth quarter of 2020. During 2021, we saw price increases on many of our purchased materials, primarily for steel and batteries due to Covid-19 related issues. Transportation costs increased as well for third party logistics, which we partially mitigated using company transportation. With the increase in production levels in 2021 and improvements in engineering and labor combined with an increase in fixed overhead absorption we were able to offset the increase in material and components costs for a slight improvement in gross margin year over year. This was particularly notable in the fourth quarter as the results of the changes we implemented took effect.

Operating Expenses
Operating Expenses as a percentage of revenue decreased by 10% in 2021, compared to 2020. Operating expenses were $5,627,674, in fiscal 2021, compared to $4,496,660 in fiscal 2020. Operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2021 were $1,674,683 down from $1,799,242 in the same period of 2020. The increase in total year operating expense was primarily due to increases in sales and marketing to support revenue growth, research and development for design changes and cost reductions, and accounting and filing fees related to a change in auditors and our proxy and meeting costs.

Net Loss
Net Loss as a percentage of revenue decreased by 11% in 2021, compared to 2020. The net loss was $6,596,039 for the 2021 fiscal year, compared to $5,213,025 for the 2020 fiscal year. For the three months ended December 31, 2021, the net loss was $2,014,811 compared to $2,336,524 for the same period in the prior year. The change in net loss is attributable to the gross loss and increased operating expenses.

Cash and Working Capital
At December 31, 2021, we had cash of $21,948,512, compared to $26,702,804 at December 31, 2020. The cash decrease was primarily from operating activities, which was partially offset by cash generated from the exercise of warrants. Our working capital decreased from $28,133,031 to $24,611,810 from December 31, 2020 to December 31, 2021.
