Eos Energy Enterprises Provides Business Update

23 April 2024

EDISON, N.J., April 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eos Energy Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOSE) (“Eos” or the “Company”), a leading provider of safe, scalable, efficient, and sustainable zinc-based energy storage systems, today provided an update on the goals outlined in the December 2023 Strategic Outlook and its preliminary first quarter results. Eos continues to reach milestones necessary to achieve the goals outlined in the Strategic Outlook in December 2023, particularly related to cost reduction initiatives, Project AMAZE implementation and Eos Z3™ production.

“The team continues to progress towards the milestones and goals presented during our December Strategic Outlook call, and is focused on delivering customer shipments, reducing costs for both Eos and our customers, and remaining on schedule to commission our first state-of-the-art manufacturing line in Turtle Creek during Q2,” said Joe Mastrangelo, CEO of Eos. “We continued to ship additional Z3 Cubes to customer locations this quarter and our cost reduction efforts are beginning to yield better gross margins compared to prior quarter results. We are excited by these recent achievements and remain motivated by the opportunity in front of us.”

Industry Recognition, Cost-Out & Performance Improvement
On April 18, Sabic Specialties Business won the coveted Gold Edison Award for the high electrically conductive compounds co-developed with Eos specifically for the Z3 battery module. Inspired by Thomas Edison, the Edison Awards™ are a globally respected leader in honoring the highest levels of new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design, and innovation. Over the past four years, Eos and SABIC worked collaboratively to develop a solution using one of SABIC’s new resin materials to replace the titanium used in prior Eos battery iterations and this patented material and innovation is one of many product cost out examples on Eos’s path to profitability.

The Company outlined an 80% cost reduction target from Z3 launch to scale, and direct materials accounted for 29 percentage points of that reduction. The Company has secured 55% of the direct material cost-out target as the R&D, engineering and supply chain teams work to utilize alternative materials, increase energy density and execute on long term supplier contracts. Innovating materials and establishing a secure, U.S.-based supply chain remains a priority for lowering component costs and delivering higher performing battery modules. Eos is currently manufacturing the higher energy density, lower cost battery module that was discussed in December and the Q4 2023 earnings conference call.

Z3 Production and State-of-the-Art Automated Manufacturing Line
Central to Project AMAZE and discussed during the Company’s December 2023 Strategic Outlook, scaled production is the largest cost reduction opportunity. Improved overhead, fixed cost and variable labor utilization are forecasted to reduce Z3 product cost by 51% when operating the state-of-the-art manufacturing line at scale.

Working with ACRO Automation, the Company successfully tested the mechanical and electrical line design and is now optimizing performance and cycle time to deliver quality Z3 battery modules. The line is producing batteries in ACRO’s Wisconsin facility to be used in product testing. The companies are fine tuning software and operational sequencing to improve material flow and achieve the required cycle time for successful Factory Acceptance Testing.

While preparing for the expected Q2 2024 state-of-the-art manufacturing line installation and commissioning, Eos continues to manufacture Z3 battery modules on its semi-automated line. Once integrated into the Turtle Creek facility, the annual manufacturing capacity for delivering energy storage systems is expected to be 1.25 GWh. Achieving this milestone is critical to reducing overhead and indirect labor costs in alignment with the Company’s cost-out plan.

Shipped Over 110 Z3 Cubes; Discharged ~1 GWh of Cumulative Total Energy in 2024
Utilizing its semi-automated manufacturing line, Eos has manufactured and shipped over 110 Z3 Cubes and nearly 75,000 battery modules to five different customers since late September 2023. More than 65% of the cubes shipped have been installed on foundations and are awaiting final customer commissioning to bring Z3 into full field operation, an important milestone in converting Eos’s $13.3 billion opportunity pipeline as of the end of the first quarter into booked orders. Commissioning represents an important stage in the project lifecycle and includes ensuring proper mechanical and electrical installation before energization, testing site controls integration, optimizing and tuning site operations to maximize customer use case performance, and customer training on Eos BESS system operation.

Eos’s technology has cumulatively discharged approximately 2.6 GWh in energy, which is enough energy to light an entire NFL season’s worth of games. Most of this energy is from Gen 2.3 systems operating in the field with 1 GWh in discharged energy year to date. The Company expects this number to continue growing as customers cycle the existing Gen 2.3 energy storage systems and Z3 projects become fully operational throughout 2024.

Announces Production Tax Credit Monetization
On April 22, Eos closed an agreement with Banyan Software, Inc. to accelerate its 2023 production tax credit monetization. Eos received $2.3 million in cash, representing a 10% discount on the value of its credits. The Company anticipates additional future transactions to accelerate the cash benefits of the IRA production tax credits to fund operations and strengthen its balance sheet. Simultaneously, the Company continues to work towards closing and funding the conditional loan commitment with the U.S. Department of Energy Loans Program Office.

Preliminary First Quarter Results & Conference Call Timing
Eos expects to record revenue of approximately $6.6 million for the first quarter, as the Company completed shipments of its first Texas project owned by a large North American infrastructure fund. As the Company continues to scale Z3 production, it is currently expecting a 5-10% gross margin improvement quarter over quarter. The Company had an ending cash balance (excluding restricted cash) of approximately $31.8 million and an orders backlog of $602.7 million as of March 31, 2024.

Eos will release its first quarter 2024 financial results after the U.S. market closes on May 14, 2024. A conference call to discuss its results will be held on May 15 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time.
