Lightning eMotors Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter 2021


Lightning eMotors, Inc. ("Lightning eMotors", "Lightning", or the "Company"), a leading zero emissions commercial fleet vehicle designer and manufacturer, today announced consolidated results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2021.

Tim Reeser, Chief Executive Officer of Lightning eMotors said, "Lightning's record third quarter performance continued on our strong Q2 momentum with robust vehicle sales and revenue growth. We began deliveries on our agreement with Forest River, which has a potential value of up to $850 million, and expect to deliver additional zero emission shuttle buses through the end of the year. Further, the first nine zero emission vehicles were delivered under the Collins Bus agreement, which includes an initial firm order commitment worth around $11 million to deploy over 100 all-electric Type A school buses across the U.S. and Canada through the end of 2023. Our team again this quarter leveraged our modularity and customization toolboxes and released two new exciting products - our zero emission Type A school Bus, and our zero emission Class A double-decker motorcoach, one of the largest ZEV's in the world today, with 200 miles of range. I continue to be impressed with the speed at which our team has been able to deliver new, compelling products that are seeing immediate customer uptake."

Reeser continued, "During the third quarter, we were very focused on addressing supply chain constraints through the addition of new suppliers. We entered into a long-term agreement with Proterra, which we believe will provide us greater visibility into our battery supply into 2025 and expect to deliver our first vehicles powered by Proterra in Q4. We continue to believe that the progress we've made with our suppliers will help mitigate our battery supply constraints and lower costs in 2022 and beyond, while also enhancing our product reliability. Additionally, we expect our first purpose built Lightning eChassis to ship in 2022, which will help address the industry chassis shortage."

Key Company Highlights

Lightning recently announced a strategic customer relationship with REV Group's Collins Bus. We continue to develop relationships with other leading vocational vehicle OEMs and suppliers:

Revenues were $6.3 million, compared to $3.8 million for the prior-year period an increase of 65% year-over-year, primarily driven by record sales of 43 complete commercial electric vehicles, compared to the sale of 30 complete commercial electric vehicles in the prior-year period.

Gross loss was $0.8 million compared to $0.1 million in the prior-year period. Gross margin was -12.3% compared to -3.6% in the prior-year period, primarily due to higher factory overhead and warranty expenses in the current period.

Operating expenses were $10.1 million compared to $3.0 million in the prior-year period, primarily due to new public company costs and increased payroll expense due to higher engineering headcount to advance the design and development of zero emission vehicles, refine and improve production processes and increased in-house engineering to support new ZEV platforms and features.

Loss from operations was $10.9 million, compared to $3.2 million during the same period in the prior year.

Net loss was $49.5 million, compared to net loss of $18.7 million during the prior-year period. The change in net loss was primarily due to a $31.8 million non-cash change in the fair value of the earnout liability and a $5.0 million non-cash change in the fair value of a derivative liability, as well as higher operating expenses and interest expense, partially offset by a gain on extinguishment of debt. Basic and diluted net loss per share was $0.67, compared to $0.59 in the prior-year period.

Adjusted EBITDA was -$9.3 million, compared to -$2.8 million during the same period in the prior year.

¹Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss are non-GAAP measures, see explanatory language and reconciliation to the GAAP measures below

Revenues were $16.8 million, compared to $5.4 million for the prior-year period, an increase of 212% year-over-year, primarily driven by record sales of 110 complete commercial electric vehicles and 2 powertrain systems, compared to the sale of 40 complete commercial electric vehicles and 5 powertrain systems in the prior-year period. Revenue contribution was broad based, stemming from a variety of segments including, Class 3 cargo vans and shuttle buses, Class 3 ambulances, Class 3 refrigerated vans, Class 4 Cargo trucks and shuttles buses, Class 5 shuttle buses, Class 3 and 4 powertrains for repower and new OEM applications, telematics and analytics subscriptions, and charging systems and accessories.

Gross loss was $2.6 million compared to $0.8 million in the prior-year period, primarily due to higher revenue. Gross margin was -15.6% compared to -15.7% in the prior-year period.

Operating expenses were $31.5 million compared to $7.7 million during the same period in the prior year, primarily due to the increase in non-recurring expenses related to the business combination with GigCapital3, new public company costs, and increased payroll expense due to higher headcount in administration and sales to support the growing sales, backlog and production, and higher engineering headcount to advance the development and design of vehicles, refine and improve production processes and enhance in-house engineering capabilities.

Loss from operations was $34.1 million, compared to $8.6 million during the same period in the prior year.

Net loss was $123.0 million, compared to net loss of $24.3 million during the same period in the prior year. The change in net loss was primarily due to a $44.2 million non-cash change in the fair value of the earnout liability, a $28.1 million non-cash change in the fair value of warrant liabilities, and a $9.3 million non-cash change in the fair value of a derivative liability as well as higher operating expenses and interest expense, partially offset by a gain on extinguishment of debt. Basic and diluted net loss per share was $2.22, compared to $0.83 in the prior-year period.

Adjusted EBITDA was -$22.8 million, compared to -$8.0 million during the same period in the prior year. Adjusted net loss was $32.9 million, compared to $9.6 million during the same period in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss are non-GAAP measures. See explanatory language and reconciliation to the GAAP measures below.

We ended the quarter with $187.2 million in cash and cash equivalents on the balance sheet.

Order Backlog and Awarded Orders

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had an order backlog?including full vehicle powertrain system conversions and powertrain systems to be sold directly to customers and charging systems?of approximately 1,617 units valued at $171.4 million, up 72% from the prior-year period. The increase in the order backlog, comprised of non-binding agreements and purchase orders from customers, reflects continued robust demand for the Company's vehicle conversions, powertrain systems, analytics, and telematics subscriptions.

The Company's sales pipeline remains strong at $1,319 million and is expected to grow further due to favorable news at the local, state and federal level that suggests broad support for commercial fleet electrification, as well as an expanding sales force. Sales pipeline may not be indicative of future sales and can vary significantly from period to period.

Guidance

Over the course of the last 45 days, we have pushed out over 60 expected vehicle sales from the fourth quarter into 2022 due to supply chain disruptions with our chassis and other component suppliers. We continue to experience supply chain challenges as we are reliant on a number of different suppliers for our components. Delays associated with any of these components may impact the timing of revenue. Fortunately, our customers remain supportive, and we have not seen any order cancellations. Based on these current business conditions, for the quarter ending December 31, 2021, the Company therefore expects:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our results determined in accordance with GAAP, we believe the following non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating our operational performance. We use the following non-GAAP financial information among other operational metrics to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors in assessing our operating performance.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Loss

EBITDA is defined as net loss before depreciation and amortization and interest expense. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, stock-based compensation, gains or losses related to the change in fair value of warrant, derivative and earnout share liabilities, gains or losses on extinguishment of debt and other non-recurring costs determined by management, such as Business Combination related expenses. Adjusted net loss is defined as net loss adjusted for stock-based compensation expense, gains or losses related to the change in fair value of warrant, derivative and earnout share liabilities, gains or losses on extinguishment of debt and certain other non-recurring costs determined by management, such as Business Combination related expenses. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss are intended as supplemental measures of our performance that are neither required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. We believe that using EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss provide an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends while comparing our financial measures with those of comparable companies, which may present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. However, you should be aware that when evaluating EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss we may incur future expenses similar to those excluded when calculating these measures. In addition, our presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Our computation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures computed by other companies, because all companies may not calculate EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss in the same fashion.

Because of these limitations, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net loss on a supplemental basis. You should review the reconciliations of net loss to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and net loss to adjusted net loss below and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
