Q1 2024 revenues of $7.1 million exceed previous guidance range of $5 -$6 million; reiterates full year 2024 operational targets

TEL AVIV, Israel, May 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Innoviz Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: INVZ) (the "Company" or "Innoviz"), a leading Tier-1 direct supplier of high-performance, automotive grade LiDAR sensors and perception software, today provided commercial and strategic updates on its business, reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024, provided guidance for the second quarter and reiterated its full year commercial and financial targets.

"Innoviz is off to a terrific start this year. We achieved strong revenue growth, beating our expectations, once again expanded our relationships with key partners and customers, and continued to build our RFI and RFQ pipeline across multiple programs," said Omer Keilaf, CEO and Co-Founder of Innoviz. "With the BMW I7 launching in Germany, we believe we are the only pureplay LiDAR company to reach SOP with level 3, as there are vehicles currently on the road using our LiDARs and perception software. As part of expanding our relationships with our customers, we are collaborating with Volkswagen Group and Mobileye on an additional level 3 program. Overall, our pipeline is very active, with approximately half in the RFQ stage and more to come."

Keilaf added, "We remain very optimistic about the LiDAR sector as recent industry and regulatory activity reflects the continued adoption of LiDAR. We believe that as OEMs work to comply with new regulations, and as the automotive industry raises its standards, OEMs will move to implement new capabilities and features, many of which may be supported only by LiDAR. Looking ahead, we expect that Innoviz will have the runway necessary to cement our place as a leading LiDAR supplier during this important market capture phase."

Commercial and Strategic Updates

Continued supporting software development for InnovizOne deployment on BMW 5 Series in China – Innoviz is working closely with the BMW and Magna teams as they perform on-road testing and the Company is supporting software development specific to the Chinese market for a new deployment of the InnovizOne on BMW 5 Series vehicles in China.

Working on program expansion opportunities through collaboration with Mobileye and Volkswagen Group – In addition to the level 3 Cariad program, ID. Buzz long-range LiDAR, Innoviz is working on another level 3 program expansion through its collaboration with the Volkswagen Group and Mobileye. In parallel, Innoviz continued commercial discussions with the Volkswagen Group regarding additional opportunities.

Progressing collaborations with additional partners - Innoviz is working with the Qualcomm platform for the Volkswagen Cariad level 3 program and with the Mobileye platform for the ID. Buzz program and the additional level 3 program. The Company continues to progress its collaboration with Nvidia and is working with OEMs on several Nvidia based RFQs in its pipeline.

Advancing pipeline opportunities with two leading level 4 platform companies – The companies are in the trucking and ride hailing spaces and are working with various OEMs.

Reached key milestone with successful winter test of InnovizTwo B-Sample with Volkswagen – The InnovizTwo late-stage B-sample was strenuously tested over 18 days of driving in harsh winter conditions across ten countries.

The data and insights accumulated during the testing are being used to improve Innoviz's proprietary AI-backed software and hardware solutions.

Successfully implemented strategic realignment – The Company implemented nearly all of the initiatives of its previously announced realignment plan during the quarter.

Link to Previous (3Q 2023) Results https://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=173177195

Highlights
- Full year 2023 revenues of approximately $21M exceeded guidance with year-over-year growth of 246%
- Q4 2023 revenues of approximately $15M exceeded guidance with 328% growth quarter-over-quarter and 846% growth year-over-year
- Strong revenue growth coupled with disciplined cost management led to the lowest quarterly cash burn since becoming a public company, finishing the year with approximately $150 million in cash and equivalents

TEL AVIV, Israel, Feb. 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Innoviz Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: INVZ) (the "Company" or "Innoviz"), a leading Tier-1 direct supplier of high-performance, automotive grade LiDAR sensors and perception software, today provided commercial and strategic updates on its business, reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023, and set 2024 commercial and financial targets.

"I am pleased with our strong finish to 2023, delivering revenues that were above the high end of both our quarterly and annual guidance range," said Innoviz CEO, Omer Keilaf. "The combination of strong revenues and disciplined cost management led to an impressive cash performance with our quarterly cash burn at just $14.5 million, a record low since Innoviz became a public company. I believe this highlights the impact that growing revenues and cost discipline can have on our longer-term financial trajectory."

Keilaf added, "So far in 2024 we have shared exciting news on the customer front, unveiling our second Volkswagen program with the ID. Buzz at CES, and today's news that we are working on an additional InnovizOne deployment with BMW on the 5 Series in China. As we look to the rest of the year ahead, we continue to be very active with our RFI and RFQ pipeline and continue to believe that several additional customer wins are within reach. We continue to believe the LiDAR market will ultimately be a 'winner takes most' industry and that the next few customer decisions could provide us with continued momentum."

Commercial and Strategic Updates

BMW i7 with InnovizOne available for sale now with deliveries planned March 2024 – The BMW i7 with the InnovizOne powered Personal Pilot L3 package is currently available for sale in Germany with deliveries expected to begin in March 2024.

Developing InnovizOne for new vehicle and geography with BMW – Innoviz has begun supporting software development specific to the Chinese market for a new deployment of the InnovizOne on BMW 5 Series vehicles in China working towards a commercial launch at a future date.

Unveiled Volkswagen ID. Buzz light commercial vehicle program at CES – Innoviz unveiled the new ID. Buzz light commercial vehicle program at CES in January, marking the company's second program with the Volkswagen Group. Volumes from this program are incremental to the original series production award announced in 2022. The ID. Buzz is a light commercial vehicle aimed at the mobility market and will be a Level 4 program with multiple LiDAR per vehicle. A test fleet of vehicles is already on the road in Austin, Texas, and we expect the program will become increasingly visible as it progresses towards a planned 2026 commercial launch.

Collaborating with Mobileye on the Volkswagen ID. Buzz – Innoviz and Mobileye both displayed the new ID. Buzz light commercial vehicle program at CES, with both companies working together on the Level 4 technology. Innoviz is supplying the InnovizTwo long-range LiDAR, while Mobileye is working with Volkswagen as the autonomy platform partner, integrating the broader sensor suite and software stack. Innoviz views Mobileye as a strong partner and hopes to find additional opportunities to work with them on new platforms.

Working towards additional growth opportunities with Volkswagen Group – Innoviz continues to work to secure additional vehicles and platforms within the Volkswagen Group, in addition to its initial 2022 series production award and the recently announced ID. Buzz program.

Customer decisions expected for late 2023 continue to progress in 2024 – Several of the Company's RFQs that were in the later stages and were expected to be completed by the end of 2023 continue to make progress, despite decision timelines having been pushed into 2024.

Strategic realignment – In late January 2024, Innoviz announced a strategic realignment that refocused the cost structure of the InnovizOne program after its transition into series production. The Company also announced a concentration of future investments on the InnovizTwo sensor and software platform and used the realignment as an opportunity to integrate its hardware and software development units into a combined R&D department. These realignment actions are expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2024 and to reduce planned cash outlays by $22-24 million on an annualized basis.

New slim profile design for InnovizTwo – Innoviz unveiled a new, slimmer profile design for the InnovizTwo that can reduce the height of the sensor from 45mm to as small as 25mm. The new design was created for a pipeline customer and can be particularly useful for customers exploring behind the windshield and rooftop LiDAR deployments.

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenues in Q4 2023 were $14.9 million, up 328% compared to revenues of $3.5 million in Q3 2023 and up 846% compared to revenues of $1.6 million in Q4 2022. The strong revenue growth came from a combination of NRE services, production units and sample shipments.

Operating expenses in Q4 2023 were $29.5 million, an increase of 6% compared to operating expenses of $27.8 million in Q3 2023, and a year-over-year decrease of 12% compared to $33.5 million in Q4 2022. Operating expenses for Q4 2023 included $5.5 million of share-based compensation compared to $5.3 million of share-based compensation in Q4 2022.

Full Year 2023 Financial Results

Revenues in 2023 were $20.9 million, up 246% compared to revenues of $6.0 million in 2022. The strong revenue growth resulted from a combination of NRE services, production units and sample shipments, and was partially offset by the transition from sample pricing to production pricing with the BMW program shifting into series production.

Operating expenses in 2023 were $121.0 million, a decline of 3% compared to operating expenses of $124.6 million in 2022. Operating expenses for 2023 included $20.7 million of share-based compensation compared to $19.3 million of share-based compensation in 2022.

Liquidity as of December 31, 2023 consisted of approximately $150.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, short term deposits, short term restricted cash and marketable securities. The combination of stronger revenues and disciplined cost management resulted in the lowest quarter-over-quarter cash burn in the Company's history as a public company at only $14.5 million (net cash used in operating activities and purchase of fixed assets).

2024 Financial and Operational Targets

The Company is establishing initial targets for Q1 2024 and FY 2024:

- Secure 2-3 additional customer programs in 2024
- Secure $20-70 million of new NRE bookings in 2024
- Q1 2024 revenues are expected to be in the range of $5-6 million (+395-494% YoY)

After initially guiding 2023 revenue targets too cautiously, Innoviz is shifting to quarterly revenue targets. There are many factors that can influence full year numbers that can be difficult to predict this early in the year, and the Company believes quarterly guidance will ultimately be a more prudent and accurate way to approach revenue targets at this point in the Company's growth curve.

Conference Call

Innoviz management will hold a web conference today, February 28, 2024, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern time (6:00 a.m. Pacific time) to discuss commercial and strategic updates, financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2023 and 2024 financial and operational targets. Innoviz CEO Omer Keilaf and CFO Eldar Cegla will host the call, followed by a question-and-answer session.

Investors are invited to attend by registering in advance here. All relevant information will be sent upon registration.

A replay of the webinar will also be available shortly after the call in the Investors section of Innoviz's website for 90 days.

Summarizing the Ride of a Lifetime at CES 2024
January 24, 2024
David Oberman, VP Asia
https://innoviz.tech/blog/summarizing-the-ride-of-a-lifetime-at-ces-2024#top

Las Vegas city is surrounded by great views of the Nevadan desert, and is best known for its gambling, shows and nightclubs, but for one week every year in early January, everything revolves around the tens of thousands of visitors from all around the world, who come to witness the latest and greatest in technology. The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is truly the mother of all technology exhibitions, and companies both large and small invest in a booth and parade their innovation and products.

This year, CES celebrated its 100th Anniversary. The walls of the long corridors showcased the many inventions which first appeared at this feted show. Walking along the halls is like reliving the advent of the many technologies that have appeared during our lifetimes and changed them irrevocably.

In recent years, automotive-related technologies have grown their presence greatly at CES. Colleagues and partners showcased impressive innovation in the West Hall of the LVCC Las Vegas Conference Center, and much of the North Hall too.

This year at CES, we were proud to be able to present at our booth, for the very first time, vehicles from our customers BMW and Volkswagen: The BMW i7 series, which can be pre-ordered already, and will be delivered to the first customers in Germany in March this year, took pride of place at our stand. The BMWi7 will be driving autonomously on the highways of Germany, the first car from BMW to have “Level 3” autonomous function, enabled by the LiDAR developed by Innoviz’s incredible team of engineers. The BMW cars use Innoviz’s first automotive-grade LiDAR, InnovizOne. The next BMW model to appear with our LiDAR will be the BMW i5 which will be released in China in a few months from now.

Alongside the BMW was Volkswagen’s ID. Buzz. This 7-seater Long-range Electric MPV has on its roof 3 units of InnovizTwo, our latest automotive-grade LiDAR, selected by the Volkswagen Group in 2022 for their cars. Innoviz is the Tier 1 provider of LiDAR for these vehicles, and is working closely with Cariad, the VW Group’s Software company, to integrate Innoviz’s LiDAR solutions into other vehicles in the VW Group.

At our booth we also showed live demos of our latest products, and passersby enjoyed posing for the LiDAR and getting 3D magnets of themselves. Visitors were also impressed by BMW’s videos and videos created by our many partners showing their use-cases with our LiDAR and their software.

Throughout the 4-day show, the Innoviz team met with our existing OEM customers and with many potential new customers, who are preparing to issue RFIs (Requests for Information) for LiDARs for their vehicles. Meetings were also held with leading robotaxi and shuttle companies, autonomous driving platform developers, mapping companies, distributors and industrial customers, analysts and media, as well as other partners from the automated and autonomous driving sector. Despite over 60 meetings set up in advance, the impromptu meetings with many potential customers and partners who passed by our booth and were impressed with what they saw were no less an achievement.

But CES isn’t all work. It would not have been the same without our traditional “SUSHI NIGHT”. It was extremely satisfying to have all 19 members of our team gather and celebrate a very successful show. See you next year!

Going forward, investment activity will be more concentrated on the InnovizTwo sensor and software platform and commercializing it for series production awards with the world's largest automotive OEMs. The Company believes that focusing on applications with the broadest market fit will yield a better return profile and optimize its path towards profitability and free cash flow generation. Innoviz is deeply focused on leveraging the strengths of the InnovizTwo platform to win additional series production awards from its robust customer pipeline.

Projected Financial Benefits

As a result of the strategic realignment actions, Innoviz plans to decrease its employee headcount by approximately 13% and expects to reduce its 2024 planned cash outlays by $22-24 million on an annualized basis. Cash savings are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2024 with run rate savings expected to be achieved by the end of the second quarter of 2024. Cash costs associated with the strategic actions are expected to be minimal.

BMW gains test license for L3 autonomous driving in Shanghai
Reuters
December 13, 2023
https://www.reuters.com/business/autos-transportation/bmw-gains-test-license-l3-autonomous-driving-shanghai-2023-12-14/

BEIJING, Dec 14 (Reuters) - BMW Group (BMWG.DE) has received a test license for level 3 autonomous driving on high-speed roads in Shanghai, the German automaker said on Thursday, a move closer to allowing driverless cars in the world's largest auto market.

BMW will launch products equipped with L3 self-driving functionality when they can do so in accordance with Chinese laws and regulations, it said in a statement.

The new license would expand areas for BMW to carry out tests of advanced autonomous driving technologies in Shanghai. BMW obtained a license in 2018 that allowed it to run tests on 5.6 km (3.5 miles) of public roads in the city.

China has been making policies to accelerate the mass adoption of autonomous driving technologies. Earlier in December, China also issued safety guidelines for the use of autonomous vehicles in public transport.

Tesla recalls nearly all 2 million of its vehicles on US roads
December 13, 2023
https://www.cnn.com/2023/12/13/tech/tesla-recall-autopilot/index.html

Tesla is recalling nearly all 2 million of its cars on US roads to limit the use of its Autopilot feature following a two-year probe by US safety regulators of roughly 1,000 crashes in which the feature was engaged.

The limitations on Autopilot serve as a blow to Tesla’s efforts to market its vehicles to buyers willing to pay extra to have their cars do the driving for them.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the Autopilot system can give drivers a false sense of security and be easily misused in certain dangerous situations when a Tesla’s technology may be unable to safely navigate the road. The over-the-air software update will give Tesla drivers more warnings when they are not paying attention to the road while the Autopilot’s “Autosteer” function is turned on. Those notifications will remind drivers to keep their hands on the wheel and pay attention to the road, according to a statement from NHTSA.

Recent Innoviz Investor Conferences
r/MVIS
4 days ago
https://www.reddit.com/r/MVIS/comments/18d4rlq/recent_innoviz_investor_conferences/

I watched/listened to the two Innoviz Investor conferences held over the past week. For the TL;DR folks here is my summary.

Omer was very confident in winning the 2nd generation BMW Series Production opportunity, which he said would be announced in the next few months.

Omer predicts only 2 or 3 LiDAR suppliers will survive and this may be known over the course of the next 12 months.

They talked about the pricing for their InnovizTwo - it will be between $500 and $850.

For BMW second generation deal, in addition to the InnovizTwo, they are providing advanced perception software, MRM software, and a compute box for this the price will be greater than $1,000.

Omer seems to generally believe that Innoviz advantage is with L3 opportunities (as opposed to L2).

Omer may be exagerrating their on-time performance with the initial BMW InnovizOne opportunity - he claims it was on-time!

Omer claims their InnovizTwo resolution is better than HD camera resolution (1280 x 780).

Omer reiterated multiple times that having already won OEM deals, is critical to winning additonal deals.

Omer said multiple times that both OEMs and compute platform providers (Nvidia, Qualcomm, etc.) are much more educated in the LiDAR realm.

Omer articulated the differences between being a Tier 1 vs. a Tier 2 (see details below).

Here is the link to the press release containing the links to both meetings.

Tier 1

Expect series production award decision in the near term. Omer said - "soon to be official"

InnovizTwo (next gen?), more advanced perception software, compute platform, MRM software

Omer said they recently introduced a new ASIC for InnovizTwo, which created an even higher resolution. He claimed their resolution is better than HD camera, which is 1280 x 780. The InnovizTwo with the new ASIC has more than 780 lines.

Omer was asked about his previous statements that the next 12,18, 24 months are critical for the LiDAR suppliers. He said the critical aspect will actually happen sooner, perhaps over the next 12 months. He claimed that only 2 or possibly 3 LiDAR suppliers will remain.

He claimed that Innoviz currently has 15% of the market (I think this number is part of their Order Book philosophy). He said the "early adopter" market share will be captured soon. Whoever captures this "early adopter" market share will be in a better position to capture the "fast follower" market share.

He said there are several RFQs in-flight for L2+ and L3 functionality. He said the L2+ RFQs also include the capability to reach L3 in the future.

He said performance, quality, and cost are important factors.

There were 10 to 15 RFI/RFQs. He said these programs have shifted from RFIs to RFQs. (Note: Omer previously has said that more than half of the 15 are RFQs). The Innoviz VP of Corporate Development and Investor Relations, Robert Moffatt, said that these RFI/RFQs comprise the top 10 to 20 global OEMs.

Omer claimed that BMW launching on time is helping to influence other OEM decisions as the others must stay competitive. (Note: It is my understanding, and I think widely viewed in the industry, that the BMW SOP was delayed by a fair amount, possibly 2+ years. Innoviz signed the deal in 2018, which might have meant an SOP in 2021 or 2022. They are finally getting to SOP in 2024. In my opinion, this claim that BMW is launching SOP on time is a bit suspect.)

OEMs are much more educated now. Omer claims this helps Innoviz as they have effectively been through the gauntlet. He says this is a disadvantage to other vendors who have not been through a production cycle as yet.

Omer said it is clear in the industry that a LiDAR sensor is needed. In fact, he views the 2nd generation BMW deal as the LiDAR sensor is taking the primary role. He reference the fact that the camera used to be the sole sensor for the MRM function, and now it will be the LiDAR sensor.

He was asked about the consensus on tech specs. He referenced a recent visit with a customer who has had previous experience with a 1550nm LiDAR. He said now, they are only considering a 905nm LiDAR sensor, due to performance and power consumption. Omer said a 905nm LiDAR sensor has better performance, lower cost, smaller size, and lower power consumpution. He said he is not sure of any advantages for a 1550nm LiDAR sensor.

He said that range and resolution requirements are pretty consistent across the OEMs. And that Innoviz was a pioneer in introducing the specs. He said Innoviz was first to introduce a .05 angular resolution spec. He did not reference range. He said the OEMs differ with regard to FOV and frame rate requirements, which is not a problem for Innoviz to change.

The war had some impact on their operations intially, but is having no impact now. He mentioned how they had an SOP software production delivery to BMW on October 15th (one week after the war started) and they met their delivery date. Their production lines for InnovizOne is in the US (Magna) and another one in Germany. They also have an R&D production line in Israel. InnovizTwo production line will be in Asia.

He mentioned you should be able to order a BMW i7 (with InnovizOne LiDAR) soon. He said that BMW is planning to begin shipping the i7 in March. They are currently working with BMW and Magna for another model launch next year.

They are working on the InnovizTwo B-Sample with BMW and expect to transition that development agreement into a Series Production award soon. He reiterated how Innoviz and BMW have been through the proverbial war together and that Innoviz has earned the trust from BMW. (Note: I must say, he seems very confident that they will win this 2nd generation BMW opportunity. If they don't his credibilty will plummet.)

He was asked about the ASP for the Innoviz products. He said that for the InnovizOne acting as a Tier 2 for BMW, they received between $600 and $700, and Magna received more money on top of that. (Note: In the subsequent Goldman Sachs conference, he said that the total ASP was between $1500 and $1700. Therefore, Magna must have received between $600 and $1100.) For InnovizTwo, they will receive more money because they are acting as the Tier 1. However, the InnovizTwo has been greatly reduced in price. For the 2nd generation BMW deal, they are also adding more content, including advanced perception software, MRM software, and a compute box. For all of this the ASP will be greater than $1000. (Note: During the Goldman Sachs conference Omer said they plan to receive between $500 and $850 for the LiDAR sensor only). He mentioned they were able to reduce the InnovizTwo cost by 70%.

Omer mentioned that they are waiting to receive the Series Production nomination from BMW. He would not specifically comment on an SOP timeline except to say that it was mid-decade.

Omer said their current VW brands include - VW, Audi, and Porsche. When they signed the VW deal they were originally talking about L3. Now they are talking with VW about other programs, some of which are L4. Cariad is involved. Mobileye is involved (some for L3 and some L4). He reiterated that the VW platform discussions have expanded since they signed the deal (May, 2022). He considers VW as an early adopter. He reiterated that the VW deal was important to help convince other OEMs that Innoviz is capable.

He said there is a dramatic difference between being a Tier 1 vs. a Tier 2. There is the opportunity to take a larger portion of the ASP while at the same time allowing for the OEM to pay less. There is also a larger amount of NRE monies available. He said that being a Tier 1 does not really require additional steps/tasks for Innoviz, but they must meet the OEM standards and quality requirements, for which they are continually being audited.

InnovizTwo is driving a lower cost. InnovizOne had 4 lasers and 4 detectors. Due to improvements in the scanning mechanism, InnovizTwo only requires one laser and one detector. This resulted in a 70% reduction in BOM costs. This lays the path to a very low ASP with volume. The InnovizTwo also improved performance by 30% vs. the InnovizOne.

The last question was a balance sheet question. The CFO, Eldar Cegla answered this question by saying they have $165M (BTW - its actually $164M) of cash as of the end of Q3. He never spoke about the burn rate and/or runway. (Note: I have observed in the past, even when asked direclty about their burn rate and runway, Innoviz never directly answer this question. Obviously, it can be figured out. They burned $23M in Q3, if they continue on that pace, they have $164M/$23M = 7.1 quarters of cash remaining. This is better than Microvision, who (under current course and speed) have approximatley 4.1 quarters of cash remaining. I find it interesting that they don't mention it. Maybe they think Beetlejuice would show up! But they would need to say it 3 times. )

Goldman Sachs 15th Annual Global Automotive Conference (Dec. 7th)
Omer was asked about the $6B Order Book.

He referenced the initial design win for VW was for L3. Since then, additional platforms became an opportunity including both L3 and L4. He said there may be a possibility to see this at CES.

What differentiates Innoviz? What makes an OEM pick you? Omer referenced the OEM process. An RFI can last 6 months, and is all about the OEM gathering information. An RFQ has 1,000s of requirements. A response to the RFQ must be a defined plan of execution that can be in the 3 or 4 years timeframe. An RFQ includes pricing negotiation. A LiDAR product needs to meet the OEM's KPIs. Omer mentioned resolution and FOV as examples. The product needs to perform for 15 years. OEMs became much more educated over the years. Omer touted Innoviz Tier 1 status with VW as a strength. He touted the experience they have gained, primarily with the initial BMW deal. He touted the fact that other OEMs have already selected the Innoviz product and this was a factor in winning new business. He said the risk was too high for an OEM to pick a LiDAR vendor who has not already won a previous OEM deal.

He touted winning the BMW 2nd generation development program and implied they will win the Series Production award.

How important is the product roadmap? OEMs have specific KPIs. The faster the car travels, the higher the specs required. An emergency breaking decision must be made at 150M to 200M at 80MPH. High resolution and high range required to detect 10cm height objects at distance. Better resoluion is required and also provides more comfort (soft braking). Higher frame rate, higher resolution, longer range is required for high speeds. Innoviz keeps pushing on performance. They are also keeping the costs down. Their new InnovizTwo reduced the price of the BOM by 70%.

Requirements of OEMs are growing. For instance, for the second generation BMW project they are providing advanced perception software, MRM software, and the compute model. For L3 you need redundancy, this is the MRM system. In case the main computer fails the Innoviz MRM system will kick in and enable 10 or 15 seconds of automated drive time until the driver can take over or the car can pull off the road. MRM system is in development and is planned for launch in mid-decade (BMW controls the timeline).

First BMW deal, Innoviz was a Tier 2. Total ASP for the LiDAR was $1500 to $1700. Innoviz got $600 and Magna got the rest. Magna was also selling the compute model on top. Under the new BMW deal, where Innoviz is the Tier 1, they will get $500 to $850 for the LiDAR. They will also get revenue for the compute model and MRM software, which will increase the price to greater than $1K.

Omer was asked about the 10 to 15 RFI to RFQ programs. They had previously said that 3 of those programs were on an accelerated timeline. Omer said those programs are still moving. There are almost daily discussions. Many OEMs want to have L3 capability in 2026/2027. If the OEMs have to change something, it becomes a problem. This is why it is taking so long, they want to get everything correct and locked down up front in the contract. Omer is optimistic they will gain more market share soon, both with existing and new customers.

Innoviz is currently integrated with 2 of the 3 major compute platform providers (Nvidia, Qualcomm, and possibly NXP). Each integration is related to a specific OEM. They are working with Nvidia. He said that compute platform providers are also more educated about what is important. Compute platform players are partners with Innoviz. There are many different models in working with the compute platform players all of which are dictated by the OEM. Omer touted the fact that since they are already integrated with the compute platform players this lessens the risk for the OEM. He said they may soon be integrated with the 3rd major compute platform provider (he referenced that their customer is doing the integration with this provider now).

Omer's exposure to the OEM's roadmaps comes directly from the RFQs, both for functionality and volumes. He says the market has shifted from R&D (small volume) programs to large volume programs. China is focused on L2. Those requirements are easier, which means cheaper. Next year the Chinese market is expected to move to L3. This will push the entire market to run faster to L3. The 10 to 15 RFI/RFQs basically consists of all the relevant global OEMs. He expects every OEM will be seeking L3 solutions.

L2+ requirements are for a very average LiDAR. When an OEM is seeking L3, then Innoviz feels very comfortable and confident. Omer said, that if an OEM is not seeking L3 now they are making a mistake. They will live with that decision for the next 5 years and will be late to the market.

Regulation follows the capabilities of the industry not the other way around. Omer believes the China regulators will allow L3. He said this because he knows of a customer that is planning for L3 in China now. China is very fast. An RFQ in China can be for a car which is planned to be on the road in 1 year (vs. the 3 years it takes for the US and Europe). He expects the China market to move very fast.

Will the regulations specifically require that a LiDAR sensor is used to achieve L3? No, the regulators don't care about how the L3 level is reached.

Opportunities beyond automotive. Omer said it is very fragmented, with things like fork lifts, cranes, surveillance systems, and many other things. There is no need to develop new hardware (since the automotive market has the most demanding requirements), but the integration and UI for each market requires work. The Innoviz approach is to work with distributors to address these markets. Innoviz wants to stay focused on automotive. NREs and volumes in the automotive market dwarfs any of the other markets.

Will there be consolidation in the LiDAR market. Omer sees this happening relatively soon. He sees only 2 or 3 LiDAR suppliers remaining. He intimated that the coming OEM decisions will determine who survives. He expects the German OEMs to make decisions sooner. He said they seem to be more inclined to be market leaders and they are oriented towards the technology. He expects the decisions in the next few months. He does not see OEMs seeking a completely different solution. He doesn't think consolidation will be through mergers and acquisitions. He said that Innoviz does not have any blind spots in their solution today, therefore they have no need or desire to acquire/merge.

He was asked about revenue. He referenced the SOP with BMW. He said that several programs are providing NRE monies. Payments for NRE is based on hitting milestones. He referenced an "end of year" milestone. He also mentioned sales of samples as revenue. He had previously publicly spoken about a potential large NRE of $70M from one customer, which they expect to sign. He reiterated that they expect to win this. He said this helps tremendously regarding their capitalization. He said this kind of deal validates their move to becoming a Tier 1.

Will the NRE revenue be high moving forward. Yes. NRE varys between $20M to $70M per specific program. It is very meaningful regaridng their funding.

He was asked what he thinks about the market price/cost trending for now and into the future. Omer said they have made a dramatic reduction in cost and referenced the fact they use a 905nm laser and went from 4 lasers and receivers (InnovizOne) to 1 laser and receiver (InnovizTwo). For InnovizTwo they plan the ASP for the LiDAR to be between $500 and $850. Their software will be a high gross margin product.

Will L3 be mandated by regulation or will it be a service. Tesla FSD has muddied the waters. Is L3 a must have for 2026 or is it more like 2028? Omer said that any safety feature in a car must not have a single point of failure. Tesla is not L3, it is only L2, the redundancy for Tesla is the actual human driver. The car maker must prove there is redundancy to achieve L3. There must be multiple types of sensors.

Will LiDAR be standard hardware or optional? Omer said that based on the volumes seen in RFQs, he interprets that the LiDARs will be standard, and not optional.

What was the catalyst for Innoviz to move from being a Tier 2 to a Tier 1? The second generation for BMW has more content (perception, MRM, compute). Why did Innoviz move to a Tier 1. They wanted to be close to the table for negotiation. They were making a huge investment. It made sense to have everything under one roof. They learned a lot of lessons in the first BMW deal as a Tier 2. Many of the tasks that were expected to be executed by the Tier 1, were performed by Innoviz. They managed to convince Audi that Innoviz was very capable of becoming a Tier 1. Innoviz is audited by VW and BMW and new customers all the time.

BMW and Innoviz achieve Level 3 autonomous driving with the BMW 7 Series
BMW is working with partners to ramp-up automated driving capabilities, starting with the 7
Frankie Youd
November 30, 2023
https://www.just-auto.com/interview/bmw-and-innoviz-achieve-level-3-autonomous-driving-with-the-bmw-7-series/?cf-view

The latest BMW 7 Series incorporates SAE Level 3 autonomy capabilities which means the car can perform some dynamic driving manoeuvres without human intervention.

This achievement has been made possible by the OEM working with Innoviz, a leading manufacturer of high-performance LiDAR sensors and perception software. The two companies have worked together for several years on highly automated technology and autonomous driving capabilities.

We spoke to with Oren Buskila, chief R&D officer, and co-founder of Innoviz, to discuss the partnership with BMW and to touch on how level 3 autonomous features have been achieved.

Just Auto (JA): Could you discuss the background on the company?

Oren Buskila (OB): Innoviz is a company based in Israel that is enabling the self-driving revolution in cars primarily through the development of LiDAR. LiDAR is a 3D sensor-based scanning laser that’s considered one of the three main sensors that are required and necessary to enable self-driving.

The company started some seven and a half years ago, we’ve grown significantly through several significant design wins that are amongst the biggest in the industry to date.

I am the chief R&D officer; I am also one of the co-founders of the company. As part of my position, I managed development of all of our products. R&D activity accounts for most of the workforce; there’s a total of 500 employees and around 300 of them are in R&D.

How did working with BMW come to be?

Our first work with BWM was back in 2018 on a programme that’s launching this year; the BMW 7 Series. This is launching with the InnovizOne LiDAR, enabling it to be the first car from BMW that will be L3 autonomous and amongst the first ever with L3 capability on public roads.

A few months ago, we announced another project with BMW, which is a development project for the next generation of BMW cars, and this is based on our newest LiDAR model called the InnovizTwo. This is roughly the same product, that has been nominated for supply by Volkswagen – but with some adjustments, specific to BMW.

How is the BMW 7 Series able to achieve level 3 autonomous driving?

The first programme is starting with the BMW 7 Series, or the i7 which is the EV version. This will be the first model from BMW that will be able to drive itself autonomously on highways.

Level 3 means that it does not require the attention of the driver at all, as long as the self-driving feature is enabled and activated. It might need to request the driver to take control, but it will give it ample time to respond, something like 10 or 20 seconds, meaning that the driver can rest or do whatever he or she would like to do. This is approved by the regulator in Germany. This was approved last year, and so far, it is enabled only by Mercedes Benz and BMW; these are the first two companies who are releasing this capability.

Level 3 is not binary. There’s a spectrum of features that could be called L3, but the essence of it is no monitoring by the driver.

The next generation of L3, which BMW is now developing, is going to have a more extensive feature set, meaning that it will be able to perform in a wider range of use-cases. It will be able to drive faster, also. At the moment there’s a sub-limit of speed that’s currently enabled. The next generation is planned to enable full-speed highway cruising. It’s meant to serve more platforms and models in the BMW portfolio.

This will be enabled by the improved range and performance of InnovizTwo, versus InnovizOne – in terms of range, resolution, field of view. The extension to the broader BMW line-up is made possible mostly through the cost reduction that was achieved in developing InnovizTwo. We worked very hard on being able to bring the cost down by 70%.

There’s another thing that is a first, a first for us, and maybe at first for the industry. We are delivering not just the LiDAR, but we have delivered a feature that is responsible for the control of the car itself, not just the perception, but the control and the decision making. This feature acts as a safety system when the main system is malfunctioning. This is called an MRM – a minimum risk manoeuvre system.

This is another box with a computer in it that processes the information from the LiDAR, and whenever it’s requested to do so by the car computer. It can bring the car to a safe stop while maintaining the course of the vehicle and decelerating in a safe way.

MRM – a minimum risk manoeuvre system

When is this planned to be available for customers?

The BMW 7 Series is planned to be launched soon, by the end of this year.

For us, the InnovizTwo LiDAR is going to start production in 2025 and will align with several launches from several customers through 2025, 2026 and 2027. We currently have several programmes with different timings.

What do you see the future holding for autonomous driving features?

I think that now we are in the stage of the first generation of automotive LiDAR. We’re seeing both limited functionalities of the cars, that have the Level 3 systems, and we’re seeing limited availability because these are still very expensive features that are not accessible to everyone.

Starting in 2025, 2026 we’ll start to see these features in more mid-range car models. As has happened in history with many vehicle technologies, such as safety belts, airbags and automatic transmissions, everything usually starts expensive and starts in the high-end models and from there it trickles down to all the rest of the of the models, until it’s eventually standard.

I think we will see Level 3 reaching full functionality for high-speed highway driving, which also means full responsibility of the car.

We’ll see that also with LiDAR. I don’t think it will be standard by 2026 but we will see it in a much broader range of vehicles. We will see this also introduced by OEMs and carmakers that have sat on the fence until recently, and did not go all in on Level 3, because they felt that the technology was not yet maybe mature, or low-cost enough.

I think we will see Level 3 reaching full functionality for high-speed highway driving, which also means full responsibility of the car. You won’t need to go into and out of Level 3 mode whenever there’s the traffic jam easing up, or building up; the car we were able to transition between modes on the highway.

Innoviz Reports Third-Quarter 2023 Results, Delivering Strong Sequential and Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth
November 08 2023
https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/innoviz-reports-third-quarter-2023-results-delivering-strong-sequential-and-year-over-year-revenue-growth-301981405.html

Summary
- Q3 2023 revenues exceeds guidance with 138% growth quarter-over-quarter and 297% growth year-over-year
- Innoviz reiterates full year 2023 commercial and financial targets and expects another meaningful step-up in revenues in Q4 2023

TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Innoviz Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: INVZ) (the "Company" or "Innoviz"), a leading Tier-1 direct supplier of high-performance, automotive grade LiDAR sensors and perception software, today provided commercial and strategic updates on its business, reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023 and reiterated 2023 commercial and financial targets.

"With our transition from SOP preparation to steady state manufacturing advancing day by day, we are shifting even more of our focus towards winning the next rounds of series production awards," said Omer Keilaf, Innoviz Co-Founder and CEO. "We continue to believe the LiDAR market will ultimately be a 'winner takes most' industry, and that the next few deals could provide us with additional momentum."

Keilaf added, "While the tragic events that have taken place in Israel over the past month have affected us all on a personal level, our global business has continued to operate as planned. Our international manufacturing operations in Germany, the U.S. and Asia were unaffected, and operations at our Israeli headquarters quickly normalized, aided by detailed business continuity planning coupled with a tremendous level of determination and commitment from the Innoviz team. It is in these trying times that we lift our heads and persevere."

Commercial and Strategic Updates

- BMW Group series production unit shipments began in the third quarter of 2023 – the Company began shipping production units of its InnovizOne LiDAR sensor components to the BMW Group's first generation program coupled with the final iteration of the perception software.

- Shuttle program transitioned to six LiDAR configuration, from four, and continues progress towards SOP – the InnovizOne-based shuttle program has transitioned from a four-LiDAR configuration, with a LiDAR in each corner, to a six-LiDAR configuration, adding two side LiDARs capable of producing a wide field of view. The change highlights the flexibility of the platform and is expected to increase the total revenue content per vehicle available to Innoviz. The program continues to progress towards SOP.


- August capital raise strengthened positioning heading into RFQ decision making – multiple RFQ programs progressed to various levels of testing, audits, and certification during the third quarter, with three programs moving to more advanced financial and operational audits. The strategic decision to raise capital strengthened the Company's positioning in these processes and helped it progress towards the final stages for these programs. The Company continues to target adding two new OEMs to its customer lineup this year.


- Growing non-recurring engineering (NRE) revenue contribution validates long-term strategy – incremental NRE revenue contribution in the third quarter of 2023 validated the Company's strategy to transition to a Tier 1 automotive supplier and to pursue increasing amounts of pre-production NRE revenue. The Company believes NRE revenue will become a growing contributor to its medium-term financial profile.

- Upgraded version of InnovizTwo B-Sample with new custom ASIC shipped to multiple customers and prospects – the Company unveiled a second iteration of its InnovizTwo sensor and software suite B-sample with its new and more powerful custom ASIC integrated. This latest B2.0 version unlocks new levels of accuracy, increased range, a broader field of view, and higher resolution. The increased performance and functionality are expected to further strengthen Innoviz's positioning within its RFQ pipeline.


- New light commercial vehicle program remains on a rapid development path – sample shipments for the new light commercial vehicle program announced Q1 2023 continued to grow in the quarter. The program remains on track for a mid-decade SOP and we expect test vehicles with multiple InnovizTwo LiDAR installed to be on public roads later this year.

- Working towards additional growth opportunities with Volkswagen Group – the Company continues to work on securing additional vehicles and platforms within the Volkswagen Group, in addition to its initial 2022 series production award. The program continues to track towards a mid-decade SOP.

- BMW Group Gen 2 program development continues – development continued on the InnovizTwo-based second generation LiDAR sensor and software suite for the BMW Group, including the all-new InnovizCore AI compute module and Minimum Risk Maneuver (MRM) software.

- Examples of Innoviz technology expected to be on display at CES – Innoviz plans to display a Level 3 BMW 7 Series with an integrated InnovizOne LiDAR at its booth at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this January. Investors interested in coordinating a booth visit are encouraged to reach out to Investors@innoviz-tech.com.

Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenues in Q3 2023 were $3.5 million, up 138% compared to revenues of $1.5 million in Q2 2023 and up 297% compared to revenues of $0.9 million in Q3 2022. The 138% quarter-over-quarter increase in revenues was driven by strong growth in InnovizTwo unit sales, which increased 102% sequentially, coupled with incremental NRE revenue. The year-over-year growth in revenues was a combination of higher sample shipments and higher NRE revenues, partially offset by lower production-level component pricing for the BMW first generation program.

Operating expenses in Q3 2023 were $27.8 million, a decrease of 11% compared to operating expenses of $31.3 million in Q3 2022. Operating expenses for Q3 2023 included $5.0 million of share-based compensation compared to $4.9 million of share-based compensation in Q3 2022. The year-over-year decrease in operating expense was driven primarily by $2.9 million of deferred NRE expenses, which will be matched to future NRE revenue and recognized as COGS.

Liquidity as of September 30, 2023 consisted of approximately $163.8 million in cash and cash equivalents, short term deposits, short term restricted cash and marketable securities.

2023 Financial Targets

The Company reiterated its outlook for full year 2023:

- +1-3 additional programs with existing customers
- +2 new series production awards with new customers
- 2023 revenues are expected to be in the range of $15-20 million (+150-230% YoY)
- Q4 2023 revenues are expected to be in the range of $9-14 million (+470-790% YoY)
- 2023 Cash Collection from Customers is expected to be in the range of $20-30 million (+295-490% YoY)
- 2023 net new NRE bookings are expected to be in the range of $20-70 million (+80-530% YoY)

Innoviz Provides Operational Update, Reiterates 2023 Financial Targets and Announces Third Quarter 2023 Earnings Details
October 24 2023
https://ih.advfn.com/stock-market/NASDAQ/innoviz-technologies-INVZ/stock-news/92350492/innoviz-provides-operational-update-reiterates-20

TEL AVIV, Israel, Oct. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Innoviz Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: INVZ) (the "Company" or "Innoviz"), a Tier-1 direct supplier of high performance, automotive-grade LiDAR sensors and perception software, today provides an operational update amidst the current conflict in Israel, reiterates its 2023 targets and shares details for its third quarter 2023 earnings call.

Innoviz Technologies has not experienced any immediate material operational or financial impact following the terrorist attacks in Israel on October 7th or the pursuant conflict thereafter. The Company's headquarters are based in Rosh Ha'Ayin, in the center of the country, away from the Southern and Northern borders. Furthermore, Innoviz is a global company, with its high-volume manufacturing sites located in the United States and Germany, and a future site planned for Asia. The Company has the ability to locate high-volume manufacturing anywhere a customer desires through its flexible and capital efficient contract manufacturing strategy. The Company continues to monitor its ongoing activities and will make any needed adjustments to ensure the continuity of its business while supporting the safety and well-being of its employees.

Additionally, Innoviz is reiterating its 2023 financial targets, including the ramp in revenue expected in the second half of the year.
