ChargePoint Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Results

06/03/2021
  • Revenue increased 24% year over year – networked charging revenue increased 36% year over year
  • Record number of new customers, bringing total to more than 5,000
  • $610 million cash balance to support growth

ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:CHPT) (“ChargePoint”), a leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network, today reported results for its first quarter of fiscal 2022 ended April 30, 2021.

“Our first quarter reflects the strength of our diversified business model across commercial, fleet and residential, and the benefits of our industry-leading scale,” said Pasquale Romano, President and CEO of ChargePoint. “We added more new customers than in any prior quarter and our commercial business experienced a strong recovery, after COVID-19 related headwinds last year. The driver of our business – the electrification of mobility -- continues, with over 2.3 million EVs expected to be sold in the U.S. and Europe in 2021, a year-over-year growth rate of over 40%. We expect an acceleration in our business as EV penetration increases and economies in our key markets reopen. Our strong balance sheet and capital light business model position us to continue leading the EV charging industry.”

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Overview

  • Revenue. For the first quarter, revenue was $40.5 million, an increase of 24% from $32.8 million in last year’s first quarter. Networked charging revenue for the first quarter was $26.8 million, an increase of 36% from $19.7 million in last year’s first quarter. The growth reflects strength in demand from commercial, fleet and residential customers.
  • Gross Margin. First quarter GAAP gross margin was 22.8%, down from 23.7% in the first quarter of last year as a result principally of mix, which favored lower margin DC and residential offerings in the current quarter. First quarter GAAP gross margin was up sequentially from 21.0% in the fourth quarter of last year on similar mix, reflecting principally ongoing component cost reduction activities and operational improvements. First quarter non-GAAP gross margin was 22.8% compared to 23.9% in the prior year’s first quarter.
  • Net Income/Loss. First quarter GAAP net income was $82.3 million, which included a $53.0 million gain from the change in fair value of warrant liabilities and an $84.4 million gain from the change in fair value of contingent earn-out liability, partially offset by $7.0 million in offering costs allocated to warrant liabilities. GAAP net loss in the prior year’s first quarter was $30.1 million. Non-GAAP net loss in the first quarter was $39.4 million, compared to $29.0 million in the prior year’s first quarter.
  • Liquidity. As of April 30, 2021, cash on the balance sheet was $609.8 million. During the quarter 11.9 million warrants were exercised for $73.8 million in cash.
  • Shares Outstanding. As of April 30, 2021, there were 305 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 expectation of acceleration in our business as the economy reopens; our strong balance sheet and capital light business model positioning us to continue leading the EV charging industry; and our financial outlook for the second fiscal quarter ending July 31, 2022 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 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; 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 8-K/A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 1, 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, 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.
