Xos, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Results

Revenue increased more than six times year-over-year

Deliveries in 2022 were up by 525% to 275 units

Expects to begin delivering gross margin positive units in the second quarter of 2023

LOS ANGELES, March 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xos, Inc. (NASDAQ: XOS) (“Xos” or the “Company”), a leading electric truck manufacturer and fleet services provider, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2022.

Full Year Highlights:

  • 2022 revenue improved significantly to $36.4 million from $5.0 million for 2021.
  • Deliveries of 275 units in 2022 compared to 44 deliveries in 2021, to leading companies within the parcel delivery, uniform and linen rentals, and food and beverage industries, such as UniFirst, FedEx Ground independent service providers, and Merchants Fleet.
  • Continue to develop and execute on plan to achieve positive gross margins at a unit level by mid-2023, including strategic price increases, optimization of operations, direct material cost reduction, and continued scale of deliveries.
  • Expanded the offering of Xos Energy Solutions, the Company’s suite of charging hardware and services, with the introduction of a suite of Xos DC Fast Chargers to get more commercial fleets into EVs
  • Increased service and dealership partnerships to 39 total locations across North America, which now include Thompson Truck Center, LLC, Yancey Bros. Co., Foley Equipment Company, W.W. Williams, and Gabrielli Truck Sales.
  • Subsequent to year end, announced a 150-vehicle purchase order from returning customer Loomis.
  • Subsequent to year end, introduced the Next-Generation 2023 Stepvan, that will reduce direct materials costs, strengthen gross margins, and enable greater savings in total cost of ownership for fleet operators.

Dakota Semler, Chief Executive Officer of Xos, commented, “2022 was a year of important milestones for advancing the Xos brand, as our team was able to lay the foundation for growth in both deliveries and revenue. We remain focused on helping commercial fleets deploy EVs across their operations, as demand for our stepvans increases due to fleet replacement needs and EV-friendly regulations that will drive EV adoption in 2023 and beyond. In 2022, we added over 800 signed Stepvan orders to our backlog, including a 30-unit order from uniform rental provider Alsco. We remain on track to be gross margin positive at a unit level by mid-2023. The wide appeal of our product line and the diversification of our customer base is expected to support continued demand for Xos in the future.”

“While the supply chain has continued to show signs of improvement, our focus from an operational standpoint remains on cost reduction in procurement of parts, as well as logistics,” said Giordano Sordoni, Chief Operating Officer of Xos. “We are also beginning to see the early-stage benefits of consolidating manufacturing at our Tennessee facility, and we are ready to scale production of our Next-Generation 2023 Stepvan, which is designed to reduce direct material costs and strengthen our gross margins.”

2023 Outlook:

Xos is providing the following outlook for 2023 as follows:

Unit Deliveries450 to 600 units
Revenue$58.5 to $84.0 million
Non-GAAP Operating Loss$52.8 to $80.0 million

Kingsley Afemikhe, Chief Financial Officer of Xos, added, “Demand for our EV stepvans and solutions remains robust, driven by supporting secular trends for commercial fleet electrification and strong order intake from both existing and new customers. The momentum we gained during 2022 has carried into 2023 and as a result, we expect to deliver strong revenue growth of approximately 95% year-over-year at the midpoint of the range.”

Mr. Afemikhe continued, “We are in a strong position to support the growth of the business with a healthy balance sheet, and have sufficient capital to get us through 2023 and into 2024. We are confident that as we grow volumes and get to positive gross margin, we are confident that we will have a range of options to raise additional capital and sustain growth.”

The outlook provided above is based on management beliefs and expectations as of the date of this press release. The results are based on assumptions that are believed to be reasonable as of this date, but may be materially affected by many factors, as discussed below in “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements”. Actual results may vary from the outlook above and the variations may be material. The Company undertakes no intent or obligation to publicly update or revise any of these projections, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial information in this press release has been presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) as well as on a non-GAAP basis to supplement Xos’ consolidated financial results. Xos’ non-GAAP financial measures include Operating Cash Flow less CapEx (Free Cash Flow), Non-GAAP Operating Loss and Non-GAAP Gross Loss, which are defined below.

“Operating Cash Flow less CapEx (Free Cash Flow)” is defined as net cash used in operating activities minus purchases of property and equipment.

“Non-GAAP Operating Loss” is defined as loss from operations adjusted for stock-based compensation, inventory write-downs and physical inventory and other adjustments.

“Non-GAAP Gross Loss” is defined as gross loss minus inventory write-downs and physical inventory and other adjustments.

Xos believes that the use of Operating Cash Flow less CapEx (Free Cash Flow), Non-GAAP Operating Loss and Non-GAAP Gross Loss reflects additional means of evaluating Xos’ ongoing operating results and trends. The presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that Xos’ future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. It is important to note Xos’ computation of Operating Cash Flow less CapEx (Free Cash Flow), Non-GAAP Operating Loss and Non-GAAP Gross Loss may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures computed by other companies, because not all companies may calculate Operating Cash Flow less CapEx (Free Cash Flow), Non-GAAP Operating Loss and Non-GAAP Gross Loss in the same fashion. Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and therefore, should only be read in conjunction with financial information reported under GAAP when understanding Xos’ operating performance. A reconciliation between historical GAAP and non-GAAP financial information is provided in this press release.

This release includes a forward-looking outlook for Non-GAAP Operating Loss. The Company is not able to provide, without unreasonable effort, a reconciliation of the outlook for Non-GAAP Operating Loss because the Company does not currently have sufficient data to accurately estimate the variables and individual adjustments included in the most directly comparable GAAP measure that would be necessary for such reconciliations, including (a) stock-based compensation, (b) total operating expenses and (c) other nonrecurring expenses that cannot reasonably be estimated in advance. These adjustments are inherently variable and uncertain and depend on various factors that are beyond Xos’ control and as a result Xos is also unable to predict their probable significance. Therefore, because management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort the impact these variables and individual adjustments will have on its reported results in accordance with GAAP, it is unable to provide a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures included in its outlook for 2023.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release, including but not limited to: (i) Xos’ ability to implement business plans, forecasts, and other expectations, and identify and realize additional opportunities, (ii) Xos’ limited operating history, (iii) cost increases and delays in production due to supply chain shortages in the components needed for the production of Xos’ vehicle chassis and battery system, (iv) Xos’ ability to meet production milestones and fulfill backlog orders, (v) changes in the industries in which Xos operates, (vi) variations in operating performance across competitors, (vii) changes in laws and regulations affecting Xos’ business, (viii) Xos’ ability to implement its business plan or meet or exceed its financial projections, (ix) Xos’ ability to retain key personnel and hire additional personnel, particularly in light of current and potential labor shortages, (x) the risk of downturns and a changing regulatory landscape in the highly competitive electric vehicle industry, (xi) Xos’ ability to service its indebtedness, (xii) macroeconomic and political conditions, and (xiii) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Xos. All forward-looking statements included in this press release are expressly qualified in their entirety by, and you should carefully consider, the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described under the heading “Risk Factors” included in Xos’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 to be filed with the SEC and Xos’ other filings with the SEC, copies of which may be obtained by visiting Xos’ Investors Relations website at https://investors.xostrucks.com/ or the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.
