ChargePoint Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Results; Raises Full-Year Revenue Guidance

Quarterly revenue increased 61% year over year Full-year revenue guidance raised 15% to $225 – $235 million Activated ports exceed 118,000 as of July 31 with over 5,400 in Europe and over 3,700 DC fast charge ports Announced agreement to acquire European e-mobility technology provider has·to·be, and acquired eBus and commercial vehicle management provider ViriCiti Introduced global fleet charging portfolio and announced seamless charging integration in-vehicle and in-app with Mercedes-Benz USA

CAMPBELL, Calif., (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/214140886/composite CHPT -0.53% (“ChargePoint”), a leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network, today reported results for its second quarter of fiscal 2022 ended July 31, 2021.

“ChargePoint’s strong second quarter results demonstrate our continued growth and leadership in the electric revolution,” said Pasquale Romano, President and CEO of ChargePoint. “We achieved record revenue, significantly grew our commercial, fleet and residential businesses, launched a charging integration with Mercedes, announced our agreement to acquire e-mobility technology provider has·to·be and acquired eBus and commercial vehicle management provider ViriCiti.”

Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Overview

  • Revenue. For the second quarter, revenue was $56.1 million, an increase of 61% from $35.0 million in the prior year’s same quarter. Networked charging revenue for the second quarter was $40.9 million, an increase of 91% from $21.4 million in the prior year’s same quarter. Revenue growth was significant in North America and Europe across the commercial, fleet and residential verticals. Commercial customers of all types are investing in charging for their consumers, employees and visitors and demand for residential products has grown as vehicle arrivals accelerate.

  • Gross Margin. Second quarter GAAP gross margin was 19.2%, down from 25.8% in the prior year's same quarter primarily as a result of increased stock-based compensation expense, lower regulatory credits, product mix, and increased supply chain costs, partially offset by product cost improvements. Second quarter non-GAAP gross margin, which primarily excludes stock-based compensation expense, was 23.1% compared to 25.7% in the prior year's same quarter.

  • Net Income/Loss. Second quarter GAAP net loss was $84.9 million, which included a $10.4 million loss from the change in fair value of warrant liabilities and $28.3 million in stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP net loss, which excludes stock-based compensation expense and other items, in the second quarter was $40.4 million as compared to $22.6 million in the prior year's same quarter.

  • Liquidity. As of July 31, 2021, cash on the balance sheet was $618.5 million. During the quarter approximately 4.4 million warrants were exercised for $44.3 million in cash.

  • Shares Outstanding. As of July 31, 2021, there were approximately 322 million shares of common stock outstanding.

For a reconciliation of our GAAP to non-GAAP results, please see the tables below.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties, and assumptions including statements regarding our financial outlook for the third fiscal quarter ending October 31, 2021 and fiscal year ending January 31, 2022. There are a significant number of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the statements made in this press release, including: developments and changes in the general market; the continuing impact of COVID-19, including in our business and those of our customers and suppliers; political, economic, and business conditions; our limited operating history as a public company; our ability as an organization to successfully integrate ViriCiti and has·to·be and acquire and integrate other companies, products or technologies in a successful manner; our dependence on widespread acceptance and adoption of EVs and increased installation of charging stations; our current dependence on sales of charging stations for most of our revenues; overall demand for EV charging and the potential for reduced demand for EVs if governmental rebates, tax credits and other financial incentives are reduced, modified or eliminated or governmental mandates to increase the use of EVs or decrease the use of vehicles powered by fossil fuels, either directly or indirectly through mandated limits on carbon emissions, are reduced, modified or eliminated; supply chain interruptions and expense increases; unexpected delays in new product introductions; our ability to expand in Europe; the need to attract additional fleet operators as customers; potential adverse effects on our revenue and gross margins if customers increasingly claim clean energy credits and, as a result, they are no longer available to be claimed by us; the effects of competition; risks related to our dependence on our intellectual property; and the risk that our technology could have undetected defects or errors. Additional risks and uncertainties that could affect our financial results are included under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on June 11, 2021, which is available on our website at investors.chargepoint.com and on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov . Additional information will also be set forth in other filings that we make with the SEC from time to time. All forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to us as of the date hereof, and we do not assume any obligation to update the forward-looking statements provided to reflect events that occur or circumstances that exist after the date on which they were made, except as required by applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

ChargePoint has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing the Company’s financial results with other companies in its industry as well other technology companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures and should be read only in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the company’s historical non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review these reconciliations.

Non-GAAP Gross Margin. ChargePoint defines non-GAAP gross margin as gross margin excluding amortization expense of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, and non-recurring costs associated with a restructuring.

Non-GAAP Net Loss. ChargePoint defines non-GAAP net loss as net income (loss) excluding amortization expense of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense and the associated stock-based payroll tax expense, non-recurring costs associated with restructuring, offering costs allocated to warrant liabilities or for share offerings, professional services fees related to acquisitions, and non-cash charges related to the revaluation of warrants, earn-out liabilities, and other financial instruments. These amounts do not reflect the impact of any related tax effects.

Investors are cautioned that there are a number of limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures to analyze financial results and trends. In particular, many of the adjustments to ChargePoint’s GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in its financial results for the foreseeable future, such as stock-based compensation, which is an important part of ChargePoint’s employees’ compensation and impacts hiring, retention and performance. Furthermore, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP, and the components that ChargePoint excludes in its calculation of non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the components that other companies exclude when they report their non-GAAP results. ChargePoint compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures. In the future, ChargePoint may also exclude other expenses it determines do not reflect the performance of the Company’s operating results.
