Forza X1 Reports Third Quarter Results

06 November 2023

FORT PIERCE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / November 6, 2023 / Forza X1, Inc. (Nasdaq:FRZA) ("Forza" or the "Company"), a developer of electric sport boats aimed at promoting sustainable recreational boating, today reported operational highlights and financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2023.

"We intend to be among the first to develop and manufacture electric boats targeting the recreational market," said Jim Leffew, Chief Executive Officer and President of Forza X1, Inc. "We are focused on the creation and implementation of marine electric vehicle ("EV") technology to control and power our electric boats utilizing our proprietary outboard electric motor. Our electric boats are being designed as fully integrated electric boats including the hull, outboard motor, and control system."

"We believe that the boating industry will follow in the footsteps of the electrification of the automotive industry by creating electric boats that meet or exceed the traditional boating consumer's expectations of price, value and run times. In other words, electric boats must offer a similar experience when compared to traditional gas-powered boats in terms of size, capability, and price point," stated Mr. Leffew.

"To date, Forza X1 has built-out and tested multiple Forza company units, including: three offshore-style catamarans, two bay boat-style catamarans, one deck boat, and three 22-foot center or dual console (F22) monohulls. In addition, we have also electrified two pontoon boats for demonstration purposes for Polaris Marine, including a Bennington and Godfrey, which were successfully showcased at their recent dealer meetings. We will continue to enhance the Godfrey model at our Old Fort, NC test facility and will test our 300HP motor variant and experiment with LFP style lithium batteries. We are in the process of an additional pontoon electrification project and are building an additional five monohulls, two of which will be showcased in Southern California in early 2024 at one of the premier OneWater dealerships. Forza completed and successfully tested its first 22-foot, fully electrified, dual console model in September and October of 2023. This model will be offered in 2024 with the existing center console."

"Each build cycle involves extensive duration and performance testing of our new, ongoing improvements. The engine design, lower units, and control systems are continuously improved with each iteration. We continue to iterate the engine design, including value engineering of parts and lightweighting of engine components," added Jim Leffew.

"In June, Forza X1 announced that it received an initial purchase order from OneWater Marine, Inc. (ONEW) indicating its intention to purchase 100 units of the Company's upcoming 22-foot electric monohull boat - which was introduced in March of 2023 - representing approximately $12,000,000 in expected revenue. This milestone agreement will allow Forza to sell through the conventional dealer model sales channel to support those looking for a more traditional way of purchasing a boat, or to accompany trade-ins, financing needs, and training. The participation of OneWater has been well-received in the marketplace and is a significant achievement for Forza X1." stated Jim Leffew.

"We anticipate revenue from the sale of these fully integrated electric boats and motors to begin in early 2024. We have also engaged with several high-profile marine manufacturers to offer our electrification expertise and hardware packages as a service. Additional confidential discussions have been held with other renowned and start-up manufacturers representing a variety of hull platform types," stated Leffew.

Full construction is underway at our North Carolina property and is expected to last for approximately ten months. To date, all of the structural steel and rebar has been delivered and the 60,000 square foot pad is being prepped for concrete and footer work. The building will be capable of producing 500 boats annually or more and will serve as the technology and fabrication center for Forza X1.

Highlights for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2023:

  • The Company had cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities of approximately $15,335,340 as of September 30, 2023.
  • The Company had working capital of approximately $16,016,417 as of September, 2023.
