GreenPower Motor Company Inc. (NASDAQ: GP) (TSXV: GPV) ("GreenPower"), a leading manufacturer and distributor of zero-emission, electric-powered, medium and heavy-duty vehicles, today announced delivery of 101 vehicles for its third quarter ended December 31, 2022, a substantial increase over prior quarters. The majority of the deliveries were EV Star Cab and Chassis, as well as EV Star Cargoes, EV Stars and the first delivery of the award-winning Nano BEAST Type A school bus.
"GreenPower made significant progress in the third quarter and we already have deliveries scheduled for more than 100 vehicles in the current quarter," said GreenPower CEO Fraser Atkinson. "Our business development team and dealer partners have been hard at work and we believe we are on track to attaining an order backlog of 2,000 vehicles. Of significance is that almost all of these are supported by firm contracts or federal and state funding for the Nano BEAST Type A school bus, BEAST Type D school bus, EV Star Cargo, EV Star and EV Star Cab and Chassis."
During the third quarter GreenPower concluded Round 2 of the West Virginia School Bus Pilot Project. The second phase of the project saw deployment in the northern portions of the state where the Type D BEAST and Type A Nano BEAST zero-emission, all-electric school buses performed excellent in winter conditions on mountainous terrains.
"The real-world demonstration of GreenPower's all-electric school buses is showing that in fact they perform as expected in all types of weather conditions and terrain," said GreenPower President Brendan Riley. "These results are significant as the company finalizes preparation to begin manufacturing school buses in the South Charleston, West Virginia plant this quarter."
GreenPower also continued to increase its dealer network across the country during the quarter. "In the past three months we have added school bus dealers to our sales network on both the east and west coasts, and truck dealers in the New England region," Riley continued.
In addition, GreenPower today provided a quarterly update with respect to the Company's at-the-market equity offering program (the "ATM") implemented on September 16, 2022 pursuant to a Sales Agreement (the "Sales Agreement") with Roth Capital Partners, LLC (the "Agent"). For the three months ended December 31, 2022 GreenPower issued a total of 458,404 common shares through the facilities of Nasdaq at an average share price of $2.40 per share for gross proceeds of $1,100,145. Pursuant to the Sales Agreement, a cash commission of $30,254 was paid to the Agent resulting in net proceeds of $1,069,891.
