Blink Charging Co., through its wholly-owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company” or “Blink”), is a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (“EV”) charging equipment and networked EV charging services. Blink offers residential and commercial EV charging equipment, enabling EV drivers to recharge at various location types. Blink’s principal line of products and services is its Blink EV charging network (the “Blink Network”) and Blink EV charging equipment, also known as electric vehicle supply equipment (“EVSE”) and other EV-related services. The Blink Network provides property owners, managers, parking companies, and state and municipal entities (“Property Partners”) with cloud-based services that enable the remote monitoring and management of EV charging stations. The Blink Network also provides EV drivers with vital station information, including station location, availability, and any fees (if applicable).

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and disclosures required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, such statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring items) which are considered necessary for a fair presentation of the condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company as of March 31, 2021 and for the three months then ended. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year ending December 31, 2021 or any other period. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related disclosures of the Company as of December 31, 2020 and for the year then ended, which were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 31, 2021 as part of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted global stock markets and economies. The Company continues to closely monitor the impact the impact of the outbreak of the coronavirus (“Covid-19”). The Company has taken precautions to ensure the safety of our employees, customers and business partners, while assuring business continuity and reliable service and support to its customers. The Company continue to receive orders for our products, although some shipments of equipment have been temporarily delayed. The Company has experienced what it expects is a temporary reduction in the usage of our charging stations, which has resulted in a decrease in charging service revenue. As federal, state and local economies begin to reopen and with a vaccine underway the Company expects demand for charging station usage to return, but the Company is unable to predict the ultimate impact that it may have on the business, future results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Since the Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2020, there have been no material changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies, except as disclosed in this note.

 

INVESTMENTS

 

Available-for-sale debt securities are recorded at fair value with the net unrealized gains and losses (that are deemed to be temporary) reported as a component of other comprehensive income (loss). Realized gains and losses and charges for other-than-temporary impairments are included in determining net income, with related purchase costs based on the first-in, first-out method. The Company evaluates its available-for-sale-investments for possible other-than-temporary impairments by reviewing factors such as the extent to which, and length of time, an investment’s fair value has been below the Company’s cost basis, the issuer’s financial condition, and the Company’s ability and intent to hold the investment for sufficient time for its market value to recover. For impairments that are other-than-temporary, an impairment loss is recognized in earnings equal to the difference between the investment’s cost and its fair value at the balance sheet date of the reporting period for which the assessment is made. The fair value of the investment then becomes the new amortized cost basis of the investment and it is not adjusted for subsequent recoveries in fair value.

 

The following summarizes the Company’s investments as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020:

 

    March 31, 2021     December 31, 2020  
             
Short-term investments:                
Available- for-sale investments   $ 36,506,174     $ -  

 

The following is a summary of the unrealized gains, losses, and fair value by investment type as of March 31, 2021:

REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

The Company recognizes revenue primarily from five different types of contracts:

 

Charging service revenue – company-owned charging stations - Revenue is recognized at the point when a particular charging session is completed.
Product sales – Revenue is recognized at the point where the customer obtains control of the goods and the Company satisfies its performance obligation, which generally is at the time it ships the product to the customer.
Network fees and other – Represents a stand-ready obligation whereby the Company is obligated to perform over a period of time and, as a result, revenue is recognized on a straight-line basis over the contract term. Network fees are billed annually.
Ride-sharing services – Primarily related to ride-sharing services agreement with the City of Los Angeles which allows customers the ability to rent electric vehicles through a subscription service. The Company recognizes revenue over the contractual period of performance of the subscription.
Other – Primarily related to charging service revenue from non-company-owned charging stations. Revenue is recognized from non-company-owned charging stations at the point when a particular charging session is completed in accordance with a contractual relationship between the Company and the owner of the station. Other revenues also comprises of revenues generated from alternative fuel credits.

 

On February 8, 2021, the Company was awarded a state-wide grant of approximately $1.7 million for the deployment of 11 new DC fast chargers across the state of Vermont in the next two years.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES – CONTINUED

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION - CONTINUED

 

The timing of the Company’s revenue recognition may differ from the timing of payment by its customers. A receivable is recorded when revenue is recognized prior to payment and the Company has an unconditional right to payment. Alternatively, when payment precedes the provision of the related goods or services, the Company records deferred revenue until the performance obligations are satisfied.

 

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had $625,021 related to contract liabilities where performance obligations have not yet been satisfied, which has been included within deferred revenue on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2021. The Company expects to satisfy its remaining performance obligations for network fees and warranty revenue and recognize the revenue within the next twelve months.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company recognized $275,579 of revenues related to network fees and warranty contracts, which were included in deferred revenues as of December 31, 2020. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, there was no revenue recognized from performance obligations satisfied (or partially satisfied) in previous periods.

 

Grants and rebates which are not within the scope of ASC 606, pertaining to revenues and periodic expenses are recognized as income when the related revenue and/or periodic expense are recorded. Grants and rebates related to EV charging stations and their installation are deferred and amortized in a manner consistent with the related depreciation expense of the related asset over their useful lives over the useful life of the charging station. During the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company recorded $150,235 and $4,579, respectively, related to grant and rebate revenue. At March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, there was $69,792 and $70,356, respectively, of deferred grant and rebate revenue to be amortized.

 

CONCENTRATIONS

 

As of March 31, 2021, a significant customer represented 49% of total accounts receivable. Another significant customer represented 23% of total accounts receivable.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, sales to a significant customer represented 21% of total revenue and another significant customer represented 20% of total revenues. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, sales to a significant customer represented 33% of total revenues.

 

NET LOSS PER COMMON SHARE

 

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding, plus the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the common share equivalents had been issued (computed using the treasury stock or if converted method), if dilutive.

 

The following common share equivalents are excluded from the calculation of weighted average common shares outstanding because their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive:

 

    For the Three Months Ended  
    March 31,  
    2021     2020  
Warrants     3,510,129       6,840,049  
Options     644,987       382,844  
Unvested restricted common stock     48,819       110,160  
Total potentially dilutive shares     4,203,935       7,333,053

6. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

JOINT VENTURE

 

The Company and a group of three Cyprus entities entered into a shareholders’ agreement on February 11, 2019, pertaining to the parties’ respective shareholdings in a new joint venture entity, Blink Charging Europe Ltd. (the “Entity”), that was formed under the laws of Cyprus on the same date. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company is not required to fund operating losses. The Company owns 40% of the Entity while the other three entities own 60% of the Entity. The Entity currently owns 100% of a Greek subsidiary, Blink Charging Hellas SA (“Hellas”), which started operations in the Greek EV market. There are currently no plans for the Company to make any capital contributions or investments. During the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company recognized sales of $477,313 and $98,000, respectively, to Hellas. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had a receivable from Hellas of approximately $492,000. The Company determined that the Entity is a variable interest entity, however, the Company does not have a controlling financial interest and, as a result, the Company is not required to consolidate the Entity and instead has applied equity method accounting to its investment in the Entity. From inception through March 31, 2021, the Entity has not generated net income and, as a result, pursuant to ASC 323, the Company has not recorded a gain or loss on its equity method investment in the Entity during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.

LITIGATION AND DISPUTES

 

On August 24, 2020, a purported securities class action lawsuit, captioned Bush v. Blink Charging Co. et al., Case No. 20-cv-23527, was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against the Company, Michael Farkas (Blink’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer), and Michael Rama (Blink’s Chief Financial Officer) (the “Bush Lawsuit”). On September 1, 2020, another purported securities class action lawsuit, captioned Vittoria v. Blink Charging Co. et al., Case No. 20-cv-23643, was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against the same defendants and seeking to recover the same alleged damages (the “Vittoria Lawsuit”). On October 1, 2020, the court consolidated the Vittoria Lawsuit with the Bush Lawsuit and on December 21, 2020 the court appointed Tianyou Wu, Alexander Yu and H. Marc Joseph to serve as the Co-Lead Plaintiffs. The Co-Lead Plaintiffs filed an Amended Complaint on February 19, 2021. The Amended Complaint alleges, among other things, that the defendants made false or misleading statements about the size and functionality of the Blink Network, and asserts claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Amended Complaint does not quantify damages but seeks to recover damages on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Blink’s common stock between March 6, 2020 and August 19, 2020. On April 20, 2021, Blink and the other defendants filed a motion to dismiss the Amended Complaint. The deadline for the Co-Lead Plaintiffs to file an opposition brief in response to the motion to dismiss is June 21, 2021 and the deadline for Blink to file a reply in support of the motion to dismiss is July 21, 2021. The Company believes that the claim has no merit, and wholly and completely disputes the allegations therein. The Company has retained legal counsel in order to defend the action vigorously. The Company has not recorded an accrual related to this matter as of March 31, 2021 as it determined that any such loss contingency was either not probable or estimable.

LITIGATION AND DISPUTES – CONTINUED

 

On September 15, 2020, a shareholder derivative lawsuit, captioned Klein (derivatively on behalf of Blink Charging Co.) v. Farkas et al., Case No. 20-19815CA01, was filed in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court seeking to pursue claims belonging to the Company against Blink’s Board of Directors and Michael Rama (the “Klein Lawsuit”). Blink is named as a nominal defendant. The Klein Lawsuit asserts that the Director defendants caused Blink to make the statements that are at issue in the securities class action and, as a result, the Company will incur costs defending against the consolidated Bush Lawsuit and other unidentified investigations. The Klein Lawsuit asserts claims against the Director defendants for breach of fiduciary duties and corporate waste and against all of the defendants for unjust enrichment. Klein did not quantify the alleged damages in his complaint, but he seeks damages sustained by the Company as a result of the defendants’ breaches of fiduciary duties, corporate governance changes, restitution, and disgorgement of profits from the defendants and attorneys’ fees and other litigation expenses. The parties agreed to temporarily stay the Klein Lawsuit until there is a ruling on the motion to dismiss filed in the consolidated Bush Lawsuit. The Company has not recorded an accrual related to this matter as of March 31, 2021 as it determined that any such loss contingency was either not probable or estimable.

 

On December 22, 2020, JMJ Financial v. Blink Charging Co. was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, seeking to pursue claims for alleged breach of contract and conversion (the “JMJ Lawsuit”). The complaint alleges that JMJ Financial purchased warrants to acquire 147,057 shares of Blink common stock on or about April 9, 2018, which permitted a cashless exercise, and that on November 23, 2020, JMJ Financial delivered a notice of warrant exercise to Blink and that the Company failed to deliver the shares. The claim alleges breach of contract and conversion; the plaintiff requests damages of at least $4.2 million, attorneys’ fees, and specific enforcement requiring delivery of the shares. In January 2021, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with JMJ under which the parties exchanged releases and the litigation was discontinued with prejudice. The Company did not make a cash payment in the settlement, but rather delivered 66,000 shares of stock, representing a modification of the initial warrant exercise but did not result in the recognition of any incremental expense.

 

On December 23, 2020, another shareholder derivative action, captioned Bhatia (derivatively on behalf of Blink Charging Co.) v. Farkas et al., Case No. 20-27632CA01, was filed in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court against the same defendants sued in the Klein Lawsuit and asserting similar claims, as well as additional claims relating to the Company’s nomination, appointment and hiring of minorities and women and the Company’s decision to retain its outside auditor (the “Bhatia Lawsuit”). On February 17, 2021, the parties agreed to consolidate the Klein and Bhatia actions, which the court consolidated under the caption In re Blink Charging Company Stockholder Derivative Litigation, Lead Case No. 2020-019815-CA-01. The parties also agreed to keep in place the temporary stay. The Company believes that the claim has no merit, and wholly and completely disputes the allegations therein. The Company has retained legal counsel in order to defend the action vigorously. The Company has not recorded an accrual related to this matter as of March 31, 2021 as it determined that any such loss contingency was either not probable or estimable.

 

On February 12, 2021, another shareholder derivative lawsuit, captioned Wolery (derivatively on behalf of Blink Charging Co.) v. Buffalino et al., Case No. A-21-829395-C, was filed in the Eighth Judicial District Court in Clark County, Nevada seeking to pursue claims belonging to the Company against Blink’s Board of Directors (the “Wolery Lawsuit”). Blink is named as a nominal defendant. The Wolery complaint alleges that the amount of restricted stock awarded to Blink’s outside directors in December 2020 exceeded the amounts permitted by Blink’s incentive compensation plan. The complaint asks the court to rescind the excess restricted stock awards, as well as other relief. The parties have agreed that the defendants could have an extension to respond to the complaint and consequently no response has been filed. The Company has not recorded an accrual related to this matter as of March 31, 2021 as it determined that any such loss contingency was either not probable or estimable.

 

9. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

On May 10, 2021, pursuant to a Share Purchase Agreement dated April 21, 2021, the Company closed on the acquisition from Blue Corner N.V., a Belgian company (“Blue Corner”), all of its outstanding capital stock. Headquartered in Belgium, Blue Corner owns and operates an EV charging network across Europe. The purchase price for the acquisition of all of Blue Corner’s outstanding capital stock was approximately $24 million (or 20 million Euros), consisting of approximately $23 million (or 19 million Euros) in cash and approximately $1.2 million (1 million Euros) represented by 32,382 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Consideration Shares”). The number of Consideration Shares was calculated based on the average price of the Company’s common stock during the 30 consecutive trading days immediately preceding the closing date of the Share Purchase Agreement, which equaled $37.66 (or 30.88 Euros) per share.

Any one or more of these uncertainties, risks and other influences, as well as our inability to avail ourselves of the loan forgiveness provisions of the PPP Loan, could materially affect our results of operations and whether forward-looking statements made by us ultimately prove to be accurate. Our actual results, performance and achievements could differ materially from those expressed or implied in these forward-looking statements. Except as required by federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether from new information, future events or otherwise

 

Overview

 

We are a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (“EV”) charging equipment and networked EV charging services in the rapidly growing U.S. and international markets for EV’s. Blink offers residential and commercial EV charging equipment and services, enabling EV drivers to recharge at various location types. Blink’s principal line of products and services is its nationwide Blink EV charging network (the “Blink Network”) and Blink EV charging equipment, also known as electric vehicle supply equipment (“EVSE”) and other EV-related services. The Blink Network is a proprietary, cloud-based system that operates, maintains, and manages Blink charging stations and handles the associated charging data, back-end operations, and payment processing. The Blink Network provides property owners, managers, parking companies, and state and municipal entities (“Property Partners”), among other types of commercial customers, with cloud-based services that enable the remote monitoring and management of EV charging stations. The Blink Network also provides EV drivers with vital station information, including station location, availability, and any fees (if applicable).

 

In order to capture more of revenues derived from providing EV charging equipment to commercial customers and to help differentiate Blink in the EV infrastructure market. Blink offers Property Partners a comprehensive range of solutions for EV charging equipment and services that generally fall into one of the business models below, differentiated by who bears the costs of installation, equipment, maintenance, and the percentage of revenue shared (as applicable).

 

  In our Blink-owned turnkey business model, Blink incurs the costs of the charging equipment and installation. We own and operate the EV charging station and provide connectivity of the charging station to the Blink Network. In this model, which favors recurring revenues, Blink incurs most costs associated with the EV charging stations; thus, Blink retains substantially all EV charging revenues after deducting network connectivity and processing fees.
   
  In our Blink-owned hybrid business model, Blink incurs the costs of the charging equipment while the Property Partner incurs the costs of installation costs. We own and operate the EV charging station and provide connectivity of the charging station to the Blink Network. In this model, the Property Partner incurs the installation costs associated with the EV station; thus, Blink shares a more generous portion of the EV charging revenues with the Property Partner generated from the EV charging station after deducting network connectivity and processing fee.

 

17
 

 

  In our host-owned business model, the Property Partner purchases, owns and operates the Blink EV charging station and incurs the installation costs. Blink works with the Property Partner, providing site recommendations, connectivity to the Blink Network, payment processing, and optional maintenance services. In this model, the Property Partner retains and keeps all the EV charging revenues after deducting network connectivity and processing fees.
     
  In our Blink-as-a-service model, Blink owns and operates the EV charging station, while the Property Partner incurs the installation cost. The Property Partner pays to Blink a fixed monthly fee and keeps all the EV charging revenues after deducting network connectivity and processing fees.

 

As part of Blink’s mission to facilitate the adoption of EVs through the deployment and operation of EV charging infrastructure globally, we are dedicated to slowing climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions caused by road vehicles. With the goal of leading the build out of EV charging infrastructure and of maximizing Blink’s share of the EV charging market, we have established strategic commercial, municipal and retail partnerships across industry verticals and encompassing numerous transit/destination locations, including airports, auto dealers, healthcare/medical, hotels, mixed-use, municipal sites, multifamily residential and condos, parks and recreation areas, parking lots, religious institutions, restaurants, retailers, schools and universities, stadiums, supermarkets, transportation hubs, and workplace locations.

 

As of March 31, 2021, we sold or deployed 17,302 chargers , of which 7,191 were on the Blink Network (4,471 Level 2 publicly accessible commercial chargers, 1,441 Level 2 private commercial chargers, 121 DC Fast Charging EV publicly accessible chargers, 11 DC Fast Charging EV private chargers, and 1,147 residential Level 2 Blink EV chargers), and the remainder were non-networked, on other networks or international sales or deployments (225 Level 2 commercial chargers, 6 DC Fast Charging chargers, 9,218 residential Level 2 Blink EV chargers, 607 sold internationally and 55 deployed internationally).

 

As reflected in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2021, we had a cash balance of $195,646,354, working capital of $230,972,150 and an accumulated deficit of $194,715,923. During the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, we incurred net losses of $7,364,475 and $2,961,100, respectively. We have not yet achieved profitability.

 

Recent Developments

 

2021 Acquisition

 

On May 10, 2021, pursuant to a Share Purchase Agreement dated April 21, 2021, the Company closed on the acquisition from Blue Corner N.V., a Belgian company (“Blue Corner”), all of its outstanding capital stock. Headquartered in Belgium, Blue Corner owns and operates an EV charging network across Europe. The purchase price for the acquisition of all of Blue Corner’s outstanding capital stock was approximately $24 million (or 20 million Euros), consisting of approximately $23 million (or 19 million Euros) in cash and approximately $1.2 million (1 million Euros) represented by 32,382 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Consideration Shares”). The number of Consideration Shares was calculated based on the average price of the Company’s common stock during the 30 consecutive trading days immediately preceding the closing date of the Share Purchase Agreement, which equaled $37.66 (or 30.88 Euros) per share.

 

January 2021 Underwritten Public Offering

 

In January 2021, we completed an underwritten registered public offering of 5,660,000 shares of our common stock at a public offering price of $41.00 per share. We received approximately $232.1 million in gross proceeds from the public offering, and approximately $221.4 million in net proceeds after deducting the underwriting discount and offering expenses paid by us. We anticipate using the net proceeds to supplement our operating cash flows to fund EV charging station deployment and to finance the costs of acquiring or investing in competitive and complementary businesses, products and technologies as a part of our growth strategy. We also plan to use any remaining proceeds we receive for working capital and other corporate purposes. Our Chief Executive Officer and one other officer participated in the offering by selling a total of 550,000 shares of our common stock from the exercise of the underwriter’s option to purchase additional shares. The public offering was made pursuant to our automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the SEC on January 6, 2021 and prospectus supplement dated January 7, 2021. Barclays Capital Inc. served as the lead book-running manager of the offering.

 

Note on Covid-19

 

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted global stock markets and economies. We continue to closely monitor the impact the impact of the outbreak of the coronavirus (“Covid-19”). We have taken precautions to ensure the safety of our employees, customers and business partners, while assuring business continuity and reliable service and support to our customers. We continue to receive orders for our products, although some shipments of equipment have been temporarily delayed. We have experienced what we expect is a temporary reduction in the usage of our charging stations, which has resulted in a decrease in our charging service revenue. As federal, state and local economies begin to reopen and with a vaccine underway we expect demand for charging station usage to return, but we are unable to predict the ultimate impact that it may have on our business, future results of operations, financial position, or cash flows. The extent to which our operations may be impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic will depend largely on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be accurately predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the outbreak and actions by government authorities to contain the outbreak or treat its impact. We intend to continue to monitor the impact of Covid-19 pandemic on our business closely.

Consolidated Results of Operations

 

Revenues

 

Total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased by $933,198, or 72%, to $2,232,062 compared to $1,298,864 during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Charging service revenue from Company-owned charging stations was $181,598 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $319,624 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, a decrease of $138,026, or 43%. The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in usage of charging stations as a result of COVID-19.

 

Revenue from product sales was $1,670,594 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $777,423 during the three months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of $893,171, or 115%. This increase was attributable to increased sales of Generation 2 chargers, DC fast chargers and residential chargers when compared to the same period in 2020.

 

Network fee revenues were $109,856 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $55,559 for the three months ended March 31, 2010, an increase of $54,927, or 98%. The increase was attributable to increases in host owned units as well as billings and invoicing to Property Partners during the three months ended 2021 compared to the months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Warranty revenues were $13,217 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $8,060 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of $5,157 or 64%. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in warranty contracts sold for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Grant and rebate revenues were $150,235 during the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $4,579 during the three months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of $145,656, or 3,181%. Grant and rebates relating to equipment and the related installation are generally deferred and amortized in a manner consistent with the depreciation expense of the related assets over their useful lives. The 2021 revenue was related recognition of $140,000 in Michigan grants associated with the installation of six DC fast charges during the three months ended March 31, 2021 as well as the amortization of previous years’ grants.

 

Ride-sharing services revenues were $45,512 during the three months ended March 31, 2021 which relates to ride-sharing subscription services with the City of Los Angeles which was associated with the acquisition of BlueLA in September 2020.

 

Other revenue decreased by $72,569 to $61,050 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $133,619 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits generated during the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. We generate these credits from the electricity utilized by our electric car charging stations as a byproduct from our charging services in the states of California and Oregon.

 

Cost of Revenues

 

Cost of revenues primarily consists of electricity reimbursements, revenue share payments to our Property Partner hosts, the cost of charging stations sold, connectivity charges provided by telco and other networks, warranty, repairs and maintenance services, and depreciation of our installed charging stations. Cost of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were $2,135,683 as compared to $990,142 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of $1,145,541 or 116%. There is a degree of variability in our costs in relationship to our revenues from period to period, primarily due to:

 

  electricity reimbursements that are unique to those Property Partner host agreements which provide for such reimbursements;
  revenue share payments are predicated on the contractual obligation under the property partner agreement and the revenue generated by the applicable chargers;
  cost of charging stations sold is predicated on the mix of types of charging stations and parts sold during the period;
  network costs are fixed in nature based on the number of chargers connected to the telco network regardless of whether the charger generates revenue;
  provisions for excess and obsolete inventory; and
  warranty and repairs and maintenance expenses are based on both the number of service cases completed during the period.

 

Cost of charging services-company-owned charging stations (electricity reimbursements) increased by $20,158 to $49,772 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $29,614 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in 2021 was attributable to the mix of charging stations generating charging service revenues subject to electricity reimbursement.

 

19
 

 

Host provider fees increased by $40,992, or 48%, to $126,421 during the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $85,429 during the three months ended March 31, 2020. This increase was a result of the mix of chargers generating revenue and their corresponding revenue share percentage payments to Property Partner hosts pursuant to their agreements, as well as a reduction in utilization due to COVID-19.

 

Cost of product sales increased by $513,917 or 85%, from $603,998 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to $1,117,915 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase is primarily due to the increase in product sales during the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. The increase was primarily due to the increase in product sales of Generation 2, DC fast chargers and home residential chargers during the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. Furthermore, the three months ended March 31, 2021 included a reduction in the provision for excess and obsolete inventory of $81,861 relating to the increased sales of residential home charger units. The three months ended March 31, 2020 included a reduction in the provision for excess and obsolete inventory of $10,878.

 

Network costs increased by $3,991 or 5%, to $79,393 during the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $75,402 during the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase was a result of the increase in charging stations on our network and costs incurred related to the upgrading of our network system as compared to the same period in 2020.

 

Warranty and repairs and maintenance costs increased by $261,151 or 127%, to $114,909 during the three months ended March 31, 2021 from $114,909 during the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in 2021 was attributable to significant efforts expended to reduce the backlog in warranty and repairs and maintenance cases. As of March 31, 2021, we recorded a liability of $9,000 which represents the estimated cost of existing backlog of known warranty cases.

 

Cost of ride-sharing services was $246,117 during the three months ended March 31, 2021 which relates to ride-sharing subscription services with the City of Los Angeles which was associated with the acquisition of BlueLA in September 2020.

 

Depreciation and amortization expense increased by $174,124, or 216%, to $254,914 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $80,790 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in depreciation expense was attributable to an increase in the number of EV charging stations and vehicles purchased in December 2020 for the recently acquired BlueLA operations.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Compensation expense increased by $2,633,684, or 125%, to $4,748,151 (consisting of approximately $4.3 million of cash compensation and benefits and approximately $0.4 million of non-cash compensation) for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Compensation expense was $2,114,467 (consisting of approximately $1.9 million of cash compensation and benefits and approximately $0.2 million of non-cash compensation) for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in compensation expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020 was primarily related to increases in personnel and compensation in executive, marketing, sales and operations departments as a result of the anticipated growth of the Company. In addition, compensation expense during the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared the same period in 2020 increased due to additional personnel in conjunction with the acquisitions of BlueLA and U-Go made during 2020.

 

General and administrative expenses increased by $939,104 or 145%, to $1,584,987 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. General and administrative expenses were $645,883 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to increases in legal, investor relations, marketing, consulting and other professional service expenditures of $527,901. Also contributing to the increase in general and administrative expenses were operating expenditures related to the 2020 acquisitions of BlueLA and U-Go which were acquired subsequent to March 31, 2020.

 

Other operating expenses increased by $582,506, or 103%, to $1,149,706 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 from $567,200 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to increases in insurance, software licensing, rent, and use tax expenditures of $566,611. The increase was partially offset by reductions in travel expenses as a result of COVID-19.

 

Other Income

 

Other income decreased by $35,738 from $57,728 for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 to $21,990 for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. During the quarter ended March 31, 2021, other income was primarily attributable to interest income of $14,997. During the quarter ended March 31, 2020, other income included earned interest income and dividend income of $15,853 from our cash and marketable securities portfolio, and changes in value of Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits of $32,072.

Net Loss

 

Our net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased by $4,403,375 or 149%, to $7,364,475 as compared to $2,961,100 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in compensation expense and general and administrative expenses.

 

Total Comprehensive Loss

 

Our total comprehensive loss for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $7,420,513 whereas our total comprehensive loss for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $3,142,568.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We measure our liquidity in a number of ways, including the following:

 

    March 31, 2021     December 31, 2020  
    (unaudited)        
             
Cash   $ 195,646,354     $ 22,341,433  
                 
Working Capital   $ 230,972,150     $ 19,579,775  
                 
Notes Payable (Gross)   $ 872,819     $ 870,696  

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we financed our activities from proceeds derived from debt and equity financings occurring in prior periods. A significant portion of the funds raised from the sale of capital stock has been used to cover working capital needs and personnel, office expenses and various consulting and professional fees.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, we used cash of $8,497,978 and $3,413,141, respectively, in operations. Our cash use for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was primarily attributable to our net loss of $7,364,475, adjusted for net non-cash expenses in the aggregate amount of $1,054,705, and $2,188,208 of net cash used in changes in the levels of operating assets and liabilities. Our cash used for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was primarily attributable to our net loss of $2,961,100, adjusted for net non-cash expenses in the aggregate amount of $220,023, and $672,064 of net cash used in changes in the levels of operating assets and liabilities.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, net cash used in investing activities was $40,582,908, of which, $36,562,212 was provided in connection with the purchase of marketable securities and $4,020,696 was used to purchase charging stations and other fixed assets. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, net cash provided by investing activities was $799,614, of which, $1,100,516 was provided in connection with the sale of marketable securities and $300,902 was used to purchase charging stations and other fixed assets.

 

During the three months ended March. 31, 2021, cash provided in financing activities was $222,385,807, of which, $221,405,782 was provided by the sale of common stock in a public offering and $999,540 was provided upon the exercise of warrants, this was offset by $19,515 used to pay down our liability in connection with internal use software. During the three months ended March. 31, 2020, cash used in financing activities was $17,989 which was used to pay down our liability in connection with internal use software.

 

As of March 31, 2021, we had cash, working capital and an accumulated deficit of $195,646,354, $230,972,150 and $194,715,923, respectively. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we had a net loss of $7,364,475.

 

In January 2021, we completed an underwritten registered public offering of 5,660,000 shares of our common stock at a public offering price of $41.00 per share. We received approximately $232.1 million in gross proceeds from the public offering, and approximately $221.4 million in net proceeds after deducting the underwriting discount and offering expenses paid by us. The public offering was made pursuant to our automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the SEC on January 6, 2021 and prospectus supplement dated January 7, 2021.

 

We are using the net proceeds from the public offering to supplement our operating cash flows to fund EV charging station deployment and finance the costs of acquiring competitive and complementary businesses, products and technologies as a part of our growth strategy, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

 

21
 

 

We have not yet achieved profitability and expect to continue to incur cash outflows from operations. It is expected that our operating expenses will continue to increase and, as a result, we will eventually need to generate significant product revenues to achieve profitability. Historically, we have been able to raise funds to support our business operations, although there can be no assurance that we will be successful in raising significant additional funds in the future. We expect that our cash on hand will fund our operations for at least 12 months after from the issuance date of the financial statements included in this quarterly report.

 

Since inception, our operations have primarily been funded through proceeds received in equity and debt financings. We believe we have access to capital resources and continue to evaluate additional financing opportunities. There is no assurance that we will be able to obtain funds on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. There is also no assurance that the amount of funds we might raise will enable us to complete our development initiatives or attain profitable operations.

 

Our operating needs include the planned costs to operate our business, including amounts required to fund working capital and capital expenditures. Our future capital requirements and the adequacy of our available funds will depend on many factors, including our ability to successfully commercialize our products and services, competing technological and market developments, and the need to enter into collaborations with other companies or acquire other companies or technologies to enhance or complement our product and service offerings.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with U.S. GAAP. These accounting principles require us to make estimates and judgments that can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements as well as the reported amounts of revenue and expense during the periods presented. We believe that the estimates and judgments upon which it relies are reasonably based upon information available to us at the time that it makes these estimates and judgments. To the extent that there are material differences between these estimates and actual results, our financial results will be affected. The accounting policies that reflect our more significant estimates and judgments and which we believe are the most critical to aid in fully understanding and evaluating our reported financial results are described below.

 

The following is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all of our accounting policies or estimates. Our accounting policies are more fully described in Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, in our financial statements included elsewhere in this quarterly report.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We recognize revenue primarily from five different types of contracts:

 

Charging service revenue – company-owned charging stations - Revenue is recognized at the point when a particular charging session is completed.
Product sales – Revenue is recognized at the point where the customer obtains control of the goods and the Company satisfies its performance obligation, which generally is at the time it ships the product to the customer.
Network fees and other – Represents a stand-ready obligation whereby the Company is obligated to perform over a period of time and, as a result, revenue is recognized on a straight-line basis over the contract term. Network fees are billed annually.
Ride-sharing services – Primarily related to a ride-sharing services agreement with the City of Los Angeles, which allows customers the ability to rent electric vehicles through a subscription service. The Company recognizes revenue over the contractual period of performance of the subscription.
Other – Primarily related to charging service revenue from non-company-owned charging stations. Revenue is recognized from non-company-owned charging stations at the point when a particular charging session is completed in accordance with a contractual relationship between the Company and the owner of the station. Other revenues also comprises of revenues generated from alternative fuel credits.

 

The timing of the Company’s revenue recognition may differ from the timing of payment by its customers. A receivable is recorded when revenue is recognized prior to payment and the Company has an unconditional right to payment. Alternatively, when payment precedes the provision of the related services, the Company records deferred revenue until the performance obligations are satisfied.

 

Grants, rebates and alternative fuel credits, which are not within the scope of ASC 606, pertaining to revenues and periodic expenses are recognized as income when the related revenue and/or periodic expense are recorded. Grants and rebates related to EV charging stations and their installation are deferred and amortized in a manner consistent with the related depreciation expense of the related asset over their useful lives over the useful life of the charging station.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

We measure the cost of services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the fair value of the award on the date of grant. The fair value amount of the shares expected to ultimately vest is then recognized over the period for which services are required to be provided in exchange for the award, usually the vesting period. The estimation of stock-based awards that will ultimately vest requires judgment, and to the extent actual results or updated estimates differ from original estimates, such amounts are recorded as a cumulative adjustment in the period that the estimates are revised. We account for forfeitures as they occur.

 

22
 

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable. We assess the recoverability of its long-lived assets by monitoring current selling prices of car charging units in the open market, the adoption rate of various auto manufacturers in the EV market and projected car charging utilization at various public car charging stations throughout its network in determining fair value. An impairment loss would be recognized when estimated future cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition are less than its carrying amount.

Income Taxes

 

We account for income taxes pursuant to the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes pursuant to FASB ASC 740, “Income Taxes.” Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences and operating loss carry forwards. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 

Operating Leases

 

We determine if an arrangement is a lease at inception. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) assets and operating lease liabilities in our consolidated balance sheets.

 

ROU assets represent our right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. As most of our leases do not provide an implicit rate, we use an incremental borrowing rate based on the estimated rate of interest for collateralized borrowing over a similar term of the lease payments at commencement date. The operating lease ROU asset also includes any lease payments made and excludes lease incentives. Our lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. Lease expense for lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

For a description of our recently issued accounting standards, see Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in Part 1, Item 1 of this Amendment No.1 to the Form 10-Q.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements, financings, or other relationships with unconsolidated entities or other persons, also known as “special purpose entities” (SPEs).

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

We are not required to provide the information required by this Item because we are a smaller reporting company.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of March 31, 2021, being the end of the period covered by this Report, our management conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Based on that evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of March 31, 2021, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to the material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting as discussed in Item 9A. Controls and Procedures – in the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, under the heading “Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting” and that continued to exist as of March 31, 2021.

 

However, as part of its ongoing remediation initiative and with the help of an outside firm, management continued to commit substantial resources to documenting and evaluating our internal controls during the quarter:

 

  Management is continuing to review the design and evaluate its internal controls over logical and administrative access to certain IT systems, resources and facilities or to administer IT applications. Management is also continuing to closely monitor progress on the remediation of the previously reported Significant Deficiencies.
  Management will shortly commence during the second quarter of 2021, the process of validating the operational effectiveness in both first and second quarters of 2021 of (a) the key internal controls forming part of the identified business processes and within the recently implemented NetSuite accounting system; and (b) the internal controls that are put in place as part of the ongoing remediation initiative.

 

Management expects to make and report continuous progress in the effective remediation of the identified and previously reported material weaknesses and significant deficiencies.

 

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

 

In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and that management is required to apply judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Except the above, there were no other changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in management’s evaluation pursuant to Rule 13a-15(d) or 15d15(d) of the Exchange Act during the quarter ended March 31, 2021, that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

 

For a description of our legal proceedings, see Note 9 – Commitments and Contingencies – Litigation and Disputes in Part 1, Item 1 of this Amendment No.1 to the Form 10-Q.

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS.

 

In addition to the information set forth under Item 1A of Part I to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, the information set forth at the beginning of Management’s Discussion and Analysis entitled “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information,” and updates noted below, you should consider that there are numerous and varied risks, known and unknown, that may prevent us from achieving our goals. If any of these risks actually occur, our business, financial condition or results of operation may be materially and adversely affected. In such case, the trading price of our common stock could decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment. These risk factors may not identify all risks that we face and our operations could also be affected by factors that are not presently known to us or that we currently consider to be immaterial to our operations.

 

We have a history of substantial net losses and expect losses to continue in the future; if we do not achieve and sustain profitability our financial condition could suffer.

 

We have experienced substantial net losses, and we expect to continue to incur substantial losses for the foreseeable future. We incurred net losses of approximately $7.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. As of March 31, 2021, we had net working capital of approximately $231 million and an accumulated deficit of approximately $195 million. We have not yet achieved profitability.

 

If our revenue grows slower than we anticipate, or if our operating expenses are higher than we expect, we may not be able to achieve profitability and our financial condition could suffer. We can give no assurance that we will ever achieve profitable operations. Even if we achieve profitability in the future, we may not be able to sustain profitability in subsequent periods. Whether we can achieve cash flow levels sufficient to support our operations cannot be accurately predicted. Unless such cash flow levels are achieved, we may need to borrow additional funds or sell our debt or equity securities, or some combination of both, to provide funding for our operations. Such additional funding may not be available on commercially reasonable terms, or at all.

 

Our business and results of operations will be, and our financial condition may be, impacted by the outbreak of Covid-19 and such impact

 

The global spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) has created significant volatility, uncertainty and economic disruption. The extent to which the coronavirus pandemic impacts our business, operations and financial results is uncertain and will depend on numerous evolving factors that we may not be able to accurately predict, including:

 

  the duration and scope of the pandemic;
  governmental, business and individual actions taken in response to the pandemic and the impact of those actions on national and global economic activity;
  the actions taken in response to economic disruption;
  the impact of business disruptions and reductions in employment levels on our customers and the resulting impact on their demand for our EV charging equipment and related services;
  the increase in business failures among businesses that we serve and with which we collaborate;
  our customers’ ability to pay for our EV charging equipment and related services; and
  our ability to provide our EV charging equipment and related services, including as a result of our employees or our customers working remotely and/or closures of offices and facilities.

 

Any of these factors could cause or contribute to the risks and uncertainties identified in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
