RA'ANANA, Israel, Dec. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rail Vision Ltd. (Nasdaq: RVSN) (“Rail Vision” or the “Company”), a development stage technology company seeking to revolutionize railway safety and the data-related market, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

“We continued to demonstrate our position at the forefront of an evolution in train safety during the third quarter,” said Shahar Hania, CEO of Rail Vision. “The strong interest we generated from potential customers during InnoTrans in Berlin, Europe’s leading rail conference, as well as SmartTransitWest in Denver, the go-to event for senior industry professionals in North America, provide us with a wealth of opportunities to launch new pilot programs with major rail operators globally. Our team is actively working to convert previously completed pilot programs into revenue-generating commercial contracts.”

“Additionally, as our game-changing technology is used in more and more real-world settings, we generate an exponentially increasing amount of important data, collected through our cloud infrastructure, that empowers our team to further refine our technology solutions while uncovering potential new opportunities for growth,” continued Hania. “With interest from potential customers in the United States, Australia, India, Italy, Taiwan, Korea, the United Kingdom, and more, my excitement for the future of Rail Vision has never been greater, and we look forward to delivering on our vision of ushering in a new era of rail safety.”

Third Quarter 2022 & Recent Highlights

  • Successfully completed initial testing under long-term pilot (LTP) with Rio Tinto Iron Ore (“Rio Tinto”) for the AutoHaul® project, the world’s first automated, long distance, heavy haul rail network, and extended pilot program to evaluate additional use cases.
  • Received notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office covering the Company’s industry-leading, cutting-edge, artificial intelligence (A.I.) based technology, specifically designed for railways, and its ability to perform built-in, real-time tests of the optical sensor.
  • Showcased Rail Vision’s AI-based solutions at InnoTrans 2022 in Germany, generating strong interest from potential customers.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2022, amounted to $202,000, due to the completion of the LTP with Rio Tinto as detailed above.
  • Research and development (“R&D”) expenses, net for the three months ended September 30, 2022, were $1,651,000, compared to the expenses of $1,683,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2021.
  • General and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2022 were $1,050,000, compared to $703,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2021. The increase is primarily attributed to increase in professional services related to the Company being a public company and an increase in share-based compensation.
  • Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $2,769,000 or $0.17 per ordinary share, compared to a net loss of $2,638,000, or $0.28 per ordinary share, in the three months ended September 30, 2021. The increase in the net loss is attributed mainly to the increase in general and administrative expenses as detailed above.
  • Rail Vision ended the third quarter of 2022 with $10.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared to $1.6 million as of December 31, 2021.
