Mississauga, Nov 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Mississauga, Nov. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Worksport Ltd (nasdaq-cm:WKSP) (the "Company") reported financial results for the 2021 third quarter period ended September 30, 2021. Investors are encouraged to read the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), which can also be found at www.worksport.com
Third Quarter Highlights:
Ended the third quarter with approximately $29.0 million in cash and cash equivalents, it's largest cash position ever.
Secured a 55,000 square foot manufacturing facility essential for the Company's plans to bring its manufacturing operations back from overseas.
Began developing Terravis Energy, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary that will lead the Company's alternative energy operations.
Appointed Bill Caragol and Ambassador Ned L. Siegel as independent directors who have immediately become invaluable additions to the Company.
Appointed Michael Timmons and Sengkee Ahn to the Company's advisory board.
Launched the Company's Global Pre-Order Portal, which the Company's believes will play an important role in generating further sales, sidelined by the global supply challenges.
Worksport has secured and moved into a new manufacturing facility in Canada. The Company has added to its Board two extremely experienced, independent directors. Additionally, the Company has expanded its Advisory Board with experts from both financial and automotive industries. Following the strides made in green energy storage with the development of the Company's Terravis COR energy storage system, Worksport launched its wholly owned subsidiary, Terravis Energy Inc. - establishing a new home for in-development, revolutionary technologies like NPEV, a hydrogen-based EV charging solution.
Steven Rossi, Chief Executive Officer of Worksport said, "Worksport continues to build what we believe will become an industry staple brand, where our technologies and efficiencies will create unique solutions to the challenges of energy storage and transportation. In August, we completed a public offering and listed our shares on Nasdaq. We will continue to forge new paths in the pursuit of our vision of providing innovative products within the tonneau cover market and beyond."
Worksport has officially started taking pre-orders for its much-anticipated Terravis System, a one of a kind solar tonneau cover and mobile energy storage system. Consumers can pre-order the entire system or the Terravis COR - a highly advanced energy storage system that functions as a stand-alone product of the Terravis System. Both the Terravis COR and the Terravis SOLIS, which specifically refers to the solar tonneau cover, are in pre-production and approaching final stages of their certification processes. As the two enter final stages of pre-production, Worksport is well-positioned to begin delivering on pre-orders and orders as soon as Q2 2022. The complete Terravis System creates a mobile power generation and storage system that produces 100% green energy to be used as backup power where there otherwise is not any, whether recreationally, professionally, or for emergencies.
Worksport has also started the development of its eCommerce site, which is expected to launch January 2022. Worksport believes that by taking control of its sales channels, the Company can achieve new heights in revenue generation and product availability. With this facilitation of D2C sales, Worksport has stockpiled inventory throughout 2021 to ease its transition to an entity having multiple, diversified revenue channels.
"It was expected that 2021 would be a building year for us with our capital raise. We have been very careful not to deploy funds for unwise investments, and we are on track and excited to utilize that capital to develop better tonneau covers and produce new lines of products such as the Terravis System. Coming out of the pandemic, companies have struggled with supply chain issues, and Worksport was not immune to these difficulties. We have taken that challenge and turned it to opportunity with the start of onshore production though the build-out of our state-of-the-art, automated manufacturing facility. Our facility in Mississauga, Ontario - what we believe is an achievement in itself - is a first of its kind in our market, and it will be used to develop products that will take us further, and for longer. We continue to believe that investments such as those in onshore manufacturing will lead us to increased revenue in 2022," said Steven Rossi.
2021 Third Quarter Financial Results

Net loss for the 2021 third quarter was $2.04 million compared to a net loss of $370,613 in the prior year period. The increased net loss was primarily due to increases in sales and marketing as well as professional fees associated with expanding the Company's business operations.
General and administrative expenses were $517,735 in the third quarter compared to $50,836 for the prior year period. The increase in G&A was largely due to increased R&D and salaries as the Company seeks to expand its operations.
