OSCEOLA, AR / ACCESSWIRE / August 15, 2022 / Envirotech Vehicles, Inc. ('Envirotech Vehicles' or the 'Company') (Nasdaq:EVTV), a provider of new zero-emission, purpose-built electric vehicles, today announced its results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Sales were $2,087,700 for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $188,266 for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The sales increase was primarily related to the sale of 21 vehicles in the second quarter of 2022 compared to two vehicles in the prior year period.

Total operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2022, were $1,833,066, compared to $931,354 for the same period in 2021, as the Company continues to invest in its operations. The increase in expenses during the quarter is primarily related to expanded sales and marketing efforts, as well as a ramp in research, development and engineering costs related to the Company's new school bus offering and class 5 truck, expected to be available by the end of 2022. Envirotech also added headcount in the second quarter as it ramps production and operations. Total net operating expenses included non-cash charges of $18,948 for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

Net loss in the second quarter of 2022 was $1,010,264, or $(0.07) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $893,079 or $(0.06) per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of 2021.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and marketable securities of $6,332,984 and working capital of $19,995,467.

Phillip Oldridge, Chief Executive Officer of Envirotech Vehicles, commented, 'Our second quarter was a breakout quarter for EVTV, continuing the momentum built during the first quarter of 2022, and resulting in significant revenue growth year over year, as well as an 88% increase in sales sequentially. We're seeing tremendous order volume for our electric trucks and vans as state and federal funding becomes more available, and importantly, we're delivering orders and enabling our customers to begin transitioning their fleets to EVs. During the second quarter we delivered 21 vehicles and to date in 2022 we've delivered a total of33 vehicles. With the recent passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, which, among other provisions, includes the introduction of a new commercial clean vehicle credit, we anticipate businesses will be even more incentivized to accelerate their transition to clean energy fleets, and EVTV is well-positioned to continuing to assist that move.

'Renovation construction continues at our Osceola, Arkansas manufacturing facility, and we're receiving strong support from the state as evidenced by our recently announced partnership with the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, which will provide EVTV an economic incentive package valued at up to $27 million. As we've said earlier, we're thrilled to establish operations as the only licensed vehicle manufacturer in the state of Arkansas, and we've recently enhanced our sales presence with the addition of Jonesboro-based DaVinci Innovations as our first commercial electric vehicle dealer. We look forward to entering into additional partnerships as we work to develop a robust dealer network to make our heavy-duty fully electric vehicles more accessible across the state.

'Finally, in early July, EVTV uplisted to the Nasdaq Capital Market, a milestone achievement for the Company. The uplisting is a culmination of the heavy lifting and hard work that has driven our considerable growth over the past year, highlighted by exponentially increased sales numbers, multiple completed deliveries, the construction of our new manufacturing facility, and our successful efforts to attract new customers. We believe our presence on Nasdaq will enhance our visibility and brand recognition in the marketplace and introduce EVTV to a broader audience of investors. As we move through the back half of 2022, we're energized about the opportunities we're seeing and we remain focused on driving operational execution to ramp production and get more of our commercial EVs on the road to our customers. This is an exciting time for our industry and our Company, and we look forward to growing our leadership position as a facilitator of the evolution to greener commercial transportation.'
