LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#EVs–Fisker Inc. (NYSE: FSR) (“Fisker”) — passionate creator of the world’s most sustainable electric vehicles and advanced mobility solutions — today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

“Fisker is delivering on our SOP commitment despite a challenging environment due to our focused collaboration with all of our partners and suppliers. We are making deliberate choices on how to best deploy capital and structure our assembly volumes for a successful ramp,” stated Henrik Fisker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Fisker.

“Last month at the Paris Auto Show, we unveiled several innovative and industry-first features in the Fisker Ocean including our unique interface. This is a very exciting time for Fisker, with the start of production for the Ocean just two weeks away. Thank you for your continued confidence in our team,” Fisker added.

Third Quarter 2022 Business Highlights:

  • Prior to the Inflation Reduction Act being signed into law, Fisker established a process for qualifying US-based Fisker Ocean reservation holders to enter into binding contracts, retaining potential eligibility for the existing federal EV tax credit. Through this process, Fisker sold out its 2023 US allotment of the Fisker Ocean Sport and Fisker Ocean Ultra trim levels.
  • In August, Fisker published its inaugural ESG Impact Report. Publishing this report prior to the start of production, shows Fisker’s foundational approach to sustainability and social impact, and how deeply embedded ESG is within the company, while reinforcing our commitment to transparency.
  • In September, Fisker announced that Wallbox will be its global partner for home EV charging solutions. Fisker is focused on providing our customers simple and intuitive technology with a clever design to make owning an EV easier.
  • More than $824 million of cash and cash equivalents at quarter-end reflects Fisker’s prudent liquidity management and positions the Fisker Ocean for a successful launch.

Recent Updates:

  • Affirming Fisker Ocean start of production on November 17, 2022.
  • Fisker confirms 42,400 Ocean unit production plan based on a detailed four-stage supplier ramp up and vehicle assembly plan from November 17, 2022 to end of 2023. This plan was developed to help ensure that parts suppliers would follow our anticipated production ramp volumes. 2023 quarterly production plan is as follows: Q1 over 300, Q2 over 8,000, Q3 over 15,000, Q4 remainder to get to 42,400.
  • Delivery of small commercial fleet of 15 Fisker Oceans to Magna in December 2022. Expected retail customer deliveries following European and US homologation in February 2023.
  • Fisker made its inaugural appearance at the Paris Motor Show where it displayed a production intent Fisker Ocean vehicle manufactured at Magna and revealed several new features. Fisker also displayed a production intent vehicle at the Oslo Motor Show in Norway. Norway is the global leader in EV adoption, with the highest percentage of new EV sales worldwide. Fisker has close to 2,000 reservations and orders in Norway and expects it to be an attractive market for the company.
  • Fisker Ocean net reservations and orders totaled over 62,000 as of October 31, 2022; double-digit increase in premium trim configurations in recent months.
  • Our interactive 3-D configurator and updated app and website is scheduled to launch in multiple languages on November 17th.
  • Production and deliveries will focus on Ocean One orders in Q1 and Q2 2023, with overlapping Ocean Extreme trim production and deliveries in Q2 2023.
  • Starting mid-January 2023, we intend to begin taking firm orders for the Fisker Ocean Extreme trim in select global launch markets.
  • Fisker continues to bolster its internal technical capabilities and our global team approximates 700 as of October 31, 2022.
  • Fisker PEAR development is progressing well. The first concept phase is signed off and we expect a drivable prototype ahead of time. We are now focused on execution and are in the process of transitioning our engineering and purchasing teams to PEAR. Fisker PEAR reservations are over 5,000 as of October 31, 2022. Detailed discussions on factory layout and tooling underway.
  • Fisker has begun preliminary discussions with large global OEMs and businesses to explore sharing both Ocean and PEAR platforms, joint US manufacturing and future sales of emissions credits.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights:

  • Cash and cash equivalents of $824.7 million as of September 30, 2022, which reflects approximately $116 million raised from Fisker’s $350 million at-the-market (ATM) equity program during the third quarter of 2022.
  • Loss from operations totaled $140.0 million, including $11.2 million of stock-based compensation expense (approximately $0.04 per share).
  • Net loss totaled $149.3 million and $0.49 loss per share. Includes an unrealized $7.3 million foreign currency loss, net of realized gains upon settlement of Euro-denominated payments (approximately $0.02 per share).
  • Net cash used in operating activities totaled $86.0 million and cash paid for capital expenditures totaled $57.3 million.
  • Weighted average shares outstanding totaled 303.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022.

2022 Business Outlook

The following information reflects Fisker’s expectations for key non-GAAP operating expenses and capital expenditures for the full-year ending December 31, 2022. Fisker is projecting the total of these items to be at the lower end of the $715 million to $790 million range, driven by disciplined cost management, favorable FX and leveraging existing technical talent for more in-house PEAR development work.

1Excludes stock-based compensation expense. A reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP amount is not provided as the quantification of stock-based compensation excluded from the non-GAAP measure, which may be significant, cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted without unreasonable efforts. The Non-GAAP adjustment for stock-based compensation expense requires additional inputs such as number of shares granted and market price volatilities that are not currently ascertainable and cannot be reasonably estimated.

Conference Call Information

Fisker Inc. will host a conference call to discuss the results at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time (5:00 p.m. Eastern Time) today, November 2, 2022. The live audio webcast, along with supplemental information, will be accessible on Fisker’s Investor Relations website at https://investors.fiskerinc.com. A recording of the webcast will also be available following the conference call.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

This press release and the accompanying tables references certain non-generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) financial measures, including non-GAAP adjusted loss from operations, non-GAAP selling, general, and administrative expense, non-GAAP research and development expense and non-GAAP total operating expenses. These non-GAAP financial measures differ from their directly comparable GAAP financial measures due to adjustments made to exclude stock-based compensation expense. None of these non-GAAP financial measures is a substitute for or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

Fisker believes that presenting these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information to investors about Fisker in understanding and evaluating its operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics used by its management in financial and operational-decision making. However, there are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP measures and their nearest GAAP equivalents. For example, other companies may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, or may use other measures to calculate their financial performance, and therefore any non-GAAP measures Fisker uses may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Therefore, both GAAP financial measures of Fisker’s financial performance and the respective non-GAAP measures should be considered together. Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure in the tables below.
