“We reported the highest second quarter revenues in the Company’s history and now, continuing that trend, we are reporting the highest third quarter revenues in our history. We also ended the quarter with our highest ever backlog of over $7 million and our highest pipeline of over $75 million. We are seeing many more multiple unit orders and we are experiencing an acceleration through the sales process,” said Beam CEO Desmond Wheatley. “The passing of the infrastructure bill by Congress on November 5, 2021 will provide $7.5 billion for building a nationwide network of plug-in electric vehicle chargers which demonstrates the commitment from the current administration to support electric vehicle growth. We are seeing an increase in orders through our GSA Federal contract. At the same time the enterprise and consumer markets are heating up with fantastic new products from companies like Rivian and Ford, while a post vaccine return to the office is reinvigorating the workplace charging market. We are investing in our factory and in our team while remaining laser focused on cost control, because we see nothing but growth in our future. It’s a great time to be Beam.”

Fiscal Q3 2021 Financial Summary

Our revenues for the third fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2021 were $2,020,612, compared to $1,237,434 for the third quarter in the prior year, a 63% increase. For the first nine months of 2021, revenues were $5,514,102, a 38% increase over $4,009,644 reported for the same period in 2020. Shipments to state and local agencies were bolstered by increasing Federal and enterprise orders.

Gross Loss
The gross loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $208,023, compared to gross loss of $188,732 for the same period in 2020. Our gross loss for the first nine months of 2021 was $631,020, compared to gross loss of $173,037 for the same period in 2020. Our gross loss increased primarily due to an increase in costs for the new EV ARC™ 2020 unit compared to the original EV ARC™ which we expect to improve over time, and due to increases in the cost of materials and delivery services due to supply shortages.

Operating Expenses
Total operating expenses were $1,481,306 for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $906,962 for the same period in 2020, a 63% increase. Operating expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $3,952,991, a 47% increase compared to $2,697,418 for the same period in 2020. The increase was primarily due to non-cash compensation expense for stock options and vesting of director restricted shares and increased sales and marketing expense to support revenue growth.

Net Loss
The net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $1,688,631, compared to $1,100,023 for the third quarter of 2020. The net loss for the first nine months of 2021 was $4,581,228, compared to $2,876,501 for the same period in 2020. This is primarily attributable to the increase in gross loss and increased operating expenses.

Cash and Working Capital
At September 30, 2021, we had cash of $23,078,452, compared to $26,702,804 at December 31, 2020. Cash decreased due to year to date operating cash usage, partially offset by the exercise of warrants. Our working capital decreased from $28,063,320 at December 31, 2020 to $26,008,773 at September 30, 2021.
