Management Commentary

 

“While 2020 continues to be a challenge to each of us in almost every way, the pandemic has clarified the relevance of Arcimoto’s mission, with our debut of the Deliverator for just in time home-delivery of food and supplies, the Rapid Responder for emergency response and security, and the renewed importance of personal local transportation with the Fun Utility Vehicle.

 

“Springing into summer, we executed three capital raises in quick succession that allowed us to retire all of our secured and convertible debt, and provided ample dry powder with which to forge ahead toward our next milestones.

 

“We have resumed production at low volume, and plan to resume deliveries this quarter. We rolled out more Deliverator pilot vehicles: two to HyreCar in Los Angeles to validate the product’s utility for gig delivery driving, and one to the newest Wahlburgers in Key West, to validate the platform for restaurant meal delivery.

 

“We remain fully committed to our customers on the road. Our newly expanded support department can now rapidly respond to early outstanding service items typical of new vehicles. We’ve also expanded the Arcimoto R&D facility, and we now have the capacity to create the full range of future Arcimoto platform products, options, and accessories.

 

“Throughout the quarter, we remained laser-focused on scaling to mass production. To that end, we began a collaboration with Munro and Associates in June to refine our plan for the growth of Arcimoto’s production capability to 50,000 units per year within 24 months. In the 10 weeks we have been working with Munro, the combined team has brainstormed 397 potential avenues for near term cost reduction and 213 potential avenues for long term cost reduction.

 

“We are mapping out the road ahead in detailed steps as we identify needed tooling, new materials and methods, and space and employment needs. Achieving mass production is the next step to truly deliver on our mission of changing transportation to a sustainable model around the world.”

 

 

 

Second Quarter of 2020 Financial Results

 

Total revenue in the second quarter of 2020 was $268,538 as compared to revenue of $8,514 for the same period in 2019. The increased revenue in the current year period was due to continued sale of FUV and Deliverator products to customers that began in late 2019 following the start of commercial production. However, revenue in the second quarter of 2020 was negatively impacted by the suspension of all vehicle production operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to the suspension, the Company had increased production capacity to two vehicles a day, up from the one per day initial production rate. To date, the Company has built more than 100 production vehicles, up from the 57 produced at December 31, 2019.

 

The Company incurred a net loss of approximately $3.7 Million or ($0.15) per share, in the second quarter of 2020 versus a net loss of approximately $3.9 Million or ($0.23) per share, for the same prior-year period. The loss is attributable to significantly higher cost of goods sold offset partially by the higher revenue and lower research and development expenses in the current-year period.

The Company had approximately $7.8 million in cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2020, compared to approximately $5.8 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2019.
