CORONA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 13, 2020 / ADOMANI, Inc. (OTCQB: ADOM), a provider of new zero-emission, purpose-built vehicles and drivetrain solutions, today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.
Quarterly and Recent Developments
Jim Reynolds, CEO of ADOMANI, commented, “The COVID-19 virus impact on our business has been significant. We support the government’s efforts to slow the spread of the virus while medical researchers try to create a vaccine, and we hope the relaxation of some of the restrictions happen soon, but that is out of our control. We remain convinced, however, that our biggest obstacle to success has been and remains the temporary inability for ADOMANI, a licensed California dealer for EV products and HVIP-certified since late October 2019, and our customers to access HVIP funding as a result of what we believe were serious administrative missteps by CARB and HVIP in 2019 that have made it impossible for us to deliver product that we have had since late 2019 to customers whose orders constitute the bulk of our backlog. We continue to believe that if those issues can be addressed and funds made available to us and our customers, we will benefit in 2020 and 2021 from additional diversification of both our customer base and our product offerings. We believe that our efforts, including our engagement of an experienced California lobbying firm, are making progress toward freeing up some HVIP funds for us and any other companies in a similar situation. However, access to the HVIP funds may not be made available to us and others until ‘late 2020,’ per the HVIP website.
We also believe that access to HVIP funding would result in a significant increase in orders and backlog once the many interested parties we have demonstrated our electric vehicles to know they can benefit from the buy-down funds. Additional incentive funds that we expect will also be available in 2020 and will spur demand for electric vehicles include, among other potential available incentives, California Energy Commission funding for zero-emission all-electric vehicles; additional grant funding available from states such as Michigan, Indiana, Florida, and New York, through the NYTVIP and New York City’s Clean Trucks Program; programs for electric infrastructure from utilities in California and a number of other states; as well as the release of millions from available Volkswagen settlement funding, which we believe will allow us to accelerate accepting orders for our new trucks, cargo vans and chassis, with deliveries potentially starting as early as the fourth quarter 2020.
We continue to believe that, if we are able to free up HVIP, NYTVIP and other funding, resume our sales and marketing efforts that have been severely curtailed by the COVID-19 virus restrictions, and effectively execute our revised, more conservative business plan and capitalize on the opportunities that are presented to us, we will be profitable, hopefully by mid-2021.”
Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results
Sales, severely impacted by the HVIP-created administrative delays and subsequent denying us access to funding, were approximately $130,000 and $413,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, compared to $4.4 million and $4.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively.
Cost of sales were approximately $83,000 and $163,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, compared to $4.1 million and $4.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively.
General and administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2020 were approximately $1.1 million, compared to approximately $1.5 million for the corresponding three-month period of 2019, a decrease of $400,000, which was primarily related to a $229,000 decrease in non-cash stock-based compensation expense in the current year period and to decreases in legal and investor relations expenses. The second quarter 2020 general and administrative expenses include approximately $158,000 in non-cash charges, including $100,000 in bad debt expense and $46,000 in stock-based compensation expense.
General and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were approximately $2.5 million, compared to approximately $2.9 million for the corresponding six-month period of 2019, a decrease of $400,000, which was primarily related to a $282,000 decrease in non-cash stock-based compensation expense in the current year period and to decreases in investor relations expenses. The six month 2020 general and administrative expenses include approximately $370,000 in non-cash charges, including $246,000 in stock-based compensation expense and $100,000 in bad debt expense.
Consulting expenses were $58,000 and $102,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, as compared to $77,000 and $154,000, respectively, for the corresponding periods in 2019, which decreases were primarily a result of the absence of grant application and tax credit consulting expenses incurred in 2019 that were not incurred in 2020. Consulting expenses include non-cash charges of approximately $26,000 and $41,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively.
Research and development expenses were $0 for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, as compared to $103,000 and $148,000, respectively, for the corresponding periods in 2019, which decreases were primarily attributable to certain supply chain expenditures made for research and development activity in 2019.
Total net operating expenses were approximately $1.2 million and $2.6 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, as compared to approximately $1.6 million and $3.2 million, respectively, for the corresponding periods in 2019. The decreases of $400,000 and $600,000, respectively, in the current year periods compared to the prior year periods were primarily due to the expense reductions discussed above.
Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 20, was approximately $1.1 million, as compared to a net loss of approximately $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, a decrease of approximately $200,000 for the reasons described above. The total non-cash expenses included in the net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, were approximately $184,000 and $301,000, respectively.
Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2020, was approximately $2.4 million, as compared to a net loss of approximately $2.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, a decrease of approximately $300,000 million for the reasons described above.. The total non-cash expenses included in the net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, were approximately $411,000 and $576,000, respectively.
