ADS-TEC Energy Delivers First Quarter 2024 Trading Update

14 May 2024

NÜRTINGEN, Germany / May 14, 2024 / Business Wire / ADS-TEC Energy plc (“ADS-TEC Energy,” “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) (NASDAQ: ADSE), a global leader in battery-buffered, ultra-fast charging technology, today announced its trading update for the quarter ended March 31, 2024.

Key Highlights from the First Quarter 2024:

• Revenue for the first quarter of 2024 totaled approximately EUR 37 million.

• Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2024 amounted to approximately EUR 1 million.

• This marks the company’s second consecutive profitable quarter, a testament to our resilience particularly during the traditionally slow first quarter and positions us well for sustained profitability as we anticipate revenues will ramp up through the remainder of the year.

• Cash reserves at the end of the quarter stood at approximately 23,0 million, demonstrating strong cash management despite significant year-over-year growth.

• The majority of revenues are expected to be recognized in the second half of 2024 based on our current order backlog.

• We anticipate 2024 full-year revenues to exceed EUR 200 million and positive EBITDA for the fiscal year, supported by robust order intake in early 2024.

Operational Highlights for the First Quarter of 2024:

• Continued expansion of our client base with the addition of a significant amount of new blue-chip customers, both in Germany and across Europe, are underpinning the strong growth momentum.

• ADS-TEC Energy’s customers usually work with a sales cycle of several months and typically conclude with significant follow up orders after having successfully tested the systems. This supports continued growth from a higher revenue base.

• Increased momentum in the US market as demand grows for upgrades to 50-70 kW chargers due to limitations in power grids.

• Strategic partnerships and key contract wins in pursuit of European expansion, including a significant collaboration with Caverion, a leading industrial player in the Nordic region.

• Securing contracts in the Netherlands as part of the NXT 50five project, highlighting our commitment to advancing sustainable energy solutions across Europe.

• Introduction of ultra-fast EV charging stations at the Marina Palms residential complex in Florida, underscoring our commitment to driving sustainable mobility solutions in the US.

• Establishment of partnerships with companies such as Nouria, Alabama Power, and Ford dealerships, showcasing our technological innovation and commitment to sustainable mobility in the US market.

• Added highly competent personnel, including the appointment of Dr. Andreas Fabritius and Alwin Epple to our Board of Directors, and the addition of Renato Gross as Senior Vice President in our US office, enhancing our expertise and leadership capabilities.

• These developments bolster confidence in our continued growth trajectory for 2025 and beyond.

Thomas Speidel, CEO of ADS-TEC Energy, commented, “ADS-TEC Energy is gaining momentum as our systems demonstrate strong operational performance, with highest availabilities and uptimes. More and more customers are signing service contracts with availability commitments of 95% and even above. In practice, we are seeing usage rates of well over 20 fast charging sessions per day, delivering more than one MWh to EVs, which significantly exceeds even our expectations and those of our customers. This is because all of this takes place on the existing power-limited grid connection. Our ultra-high-power battery-buffered systems are therefore also used for upgrades and replacements of low power 50-70KW chargers and provide a seamless and cost-effective upgrade path without the need for grid expansion.

“Our second consecutive profitable quarter marks a significant milestone towards what we anticipate to be sustained profitability in FY 2024 and beyond and makes me very proud of our strong and unique team. Our expanding partnerships with blue-chip clients and our growth across Europe and the US reaffirm our confidence in our platform's scalability, robust customer growth, and continued success in the charging ecosystem for 2025 and beyond.”

Use of Non-IFRS Financial Measures.

ADS-TEC Energy has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IFRS”). ADS-TEC Energy uses these non-IFRS financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes that the use of these non-IFRS financial measures is useful to investors to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing ADS-TEC Energy’s financial results with other companies in its industry as well other technology companies, many of which present similar non-IFRS financial measures.

The presentation of these non-IFRS financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable IFRS financial measures and should be read only in conjunction with ADS-TEC Energy’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. A reconciliation of ADS-TEC Energy’s historical non-IFRS financial measures to their most directly comparable IFRS measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review these reconciliations.

Definition and Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures

The press release includes certain non-IFRS financial measures such as “EBITDA” and “Adjusted EBITDA”. ADS-TEC Energy believes these measures are useful to investors for evaluating period-to-period operational performance on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance.

ADS-TEC Energy defines EBITDA as result before tax before (i) finance income / (expenses) and (ii) depreciation and amortization. ADS-TEC Energy defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBIDTA plus listing fee. These measures should not be considered as measures of financial performance under IFRS, and the items excluded from or included in these metrics are significant components in understanding and assessing ADS-TEC Energy financial performance.
