GreenPower Motor Company Inc. (Nasdaq: GP) (TSXV: GPV) ("GreenPower"), a leading manufacturer and distributor of purpose-built, all-electric, zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles serving the cargo and delivery market, shuttle and transit space and school bus sector, today announced record revenues and deliveries for its third quarter ended December 31, 2022.
GreenPower reported revenues of nearly $12.8 million, a 140% increase from the previous year's third quarter, and delivered 101 vehicles with a majority of the deliveries being EV Star Cab and Chassis, as well as EV Star Cargos, EV Stars and the first delivery of the award-winning Nano BEAST Type A school bus.
"The quarter was record setting in all aspects for GreenPower," said Fraser Atkinson, GreenPower Chairman and CEO. "In addition to realized revenue, GreenPower had more than $12 million of deferred revenue at the end of the third quarter, the majority of which we expect to recognize over the next 12 months, further accelerating our revenue growth."
At quarter's end, GreenPower held $46.2 million in inventory, including $34.6 million in finished goods inventory that is expected to be used to fulfill existing customer orders. "Utilizing our current inventory and with continued increase in production, GreenPower is on track for this quarter to exceed last quarter's record delivery of 101 vehicles. We are working on more than 30 deals in eight states for our BEAST and Nano BEAST school buses with deliveries for the first of these also utilizing current inventory," Atkinson stated.
Subsequent to the end of the third quarter GreenPower raised more than $3.5 million from its at-the-market equity program (ATM). The funds raised through the ATM are supporting GreenPower's continued growth and the net proceeds benefit the production of GreenPower's purpose-built, all-electric vehicles as well as for product development with the remainder for general corporate purposes.
Third Quarter Highlights:
"GreenPower delivered 84 EV Star Cab and Chassis to Workhorse during the third quarter," said Brendan Riley, President of GreenPower. "We continue to work on timing and quality issues with our supply chain and shipping in order to optimize the run-rate of deliveries to Workhorse."
GreenPower also concentrated on its dealer network during the quarter for both commercial truck and school bus sales. In addition, the company announced the appointment of Claus Tritt to head GreenPower's commercial vehicle group, develop the sales team and expand the dealer network nationwide.
"Bringing Claus on board allows GreenPower to provide more focus on all-electric, purpose-built truck sales in the coming quarters," Riley noted, adding that Tritt will develop plans for the full integration of Lion Truck Body components into GreenPower commercial vehicles. "GreenPower is geared up to be the full-service provider for its customers for both the goods and services necessary to successfully electrify their fleets," Riley concluded.
