Charge Enterprises Announces Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Q3 Revenue of $117.1 Million

Strengthening Team and Processes to Support Strategic Execution

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November 18, 2021 / Charge Enterprises Inc. (OTC PINK:CRGE) ("Charge"), consisting of a portfolio of global businesses with the vision of connecting people everywhere with communications and electric-vehicle charging ("EV") infrastructure, today reported its financial results for the three-month period and nine-month period ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Results - Selected Financial Information

"Charge made considerable progress in Q3, strengthening and growing the leadership team, streamlining our processes and engaging with customers across a variety of industry sectors, to provide seamless solutions addressing infrastructure requirements for mobility and connectivity while delivering a reliable, safe, ecosystem positioned for flexibility and scalability," said Charge's Chairman and CEO Andrew Fox. "Our newly-named President Mark LaNeve and Charge's new CFO, Leah Schweller, along with Charge's leadership team, are transforming the operations and organizing the skill teams to continue developing the deployment for Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging and 5G wireless network infrastructure. We are being deliberate and careful as we construct our team and build internal public company processes to simultaneously tackle the challenges of pioneering a new industry and identify and procure the resources required for today's mobility and wireless data transmission, therefore effectuating these cross-over industry infrastructures to move and connect people for future use cases. Our goal is to be the trusted global infrastructure partner for 5G wireless network and intelligent sites as well as EV Charging."

Reported results include: TransWorld Enterprises, Inc., acquired on May 8, 2020; GetCharged, Inc., acquired on October 12, 2020; PTGI International Carrier Services, Inc., acquired on October 31, 2020; and ANS Advanced Network Services ("ANS") on May 21, 2021, and are therefore not comparable to year-ago periods.

Third quarter revenue was $117.1 million with a net loss of $25.2 million or $0.17 per share. This loss included non-cash charges of $27.4 million related to impairments, stock-based compensation, depreciation, amortization of debt discounts and issue costs, and interest expenses (see financials below).

Gross margin for the third quarter improved due to the inclusion of a full quarter of ANS operations. Charge's operating units continue to generate operating income, which was offset by corporate personnel expansion, in preparation for Charge's anticipated growth.

As of September 30,2021, Charge held $22.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities.

Please see Charge Enterprises' financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 filed with the OTC Markets for further details of the financials. Note the quarterly financial statements for March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021 were refiled with the OTC Markets on November 12, 2021.

"The growth trajectory within the EV Charging industry is highly underestimated and the value proposition that Charge's bespoke, hardware and software agnostic solution provides, has proven a differentiator to our targeted clients," said Mr. Fox, "our customized infrastructure process enables them to optimize a solution for installation that aligns with their business goals as they embrace the EV revolution."

Key Recent Highlights

  • ANS Advanced Network Services (ANS) integration is progressing. The synergies between the processes for 5G Wireless Networks, Intelligent site solutions, and EV Charging infrastructure are creating a value proposition for clients, enabling them to have a one-stop solution for both their Wireless Network needs as well as EV Charging ecosystem installations. The process and resources for infrastructure build-out are: Design and Engineering, Equipment selection and sourcing, Planning and Installation, Software selection and sourcing, Remote Maintenance and Monitoring. This fluid combination gives Charge a distinct competitive edge and increases new client procurement efficiency and effectiveness.
  • Developed senior leadership team
    • Founder and CEO Andrew Fox was named Chairman of the Board of Directors, consistent with Charge's succession plans. Mr. Fox and the Charge executive team are focused on executing Charge's unique value proposition, developing a strong culture and driving intelligent growth with sustainable value for all stakeholders and employees.
    • Named Mark LaNeve, formerly Chief Business Officer, President. Mr. LaNeve previously held senior officer positions as Vice President of Sales and Marketing at General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Volvo, and CMO at Allstate. Mr. LaNeve has more than four decades of experience leading Fortune 100 companies.
    • Nicole Antakli, who previously served as Director of Administration, succeeds Mr. LaNeve as Chief Business Officer. Before joining Charge, she served as President and Chief Operating Officer of Intraco Corporation, a global export management firm with a focus on architectural glass and OEM automotive distribution. She has extensive international operational leadership experience encompassing strategic joint ventures, purchasing, logistics coordination, financing mechanisms for manufacturers and customers.

It has proven a substantial feeder for crossover clients from the hospitality, retail and commercial industry seeking to develop an EV Charging Infrastructure ecosystem for their site locations.
  • Charge continues to work diligently to complete its application to list its common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market. A Nasdaq listing would be a key milestone for Charge, making Charge more visible to a broader range of investors, and enhancing its trading liquidity and ability to expand shareholder base.

Market Opportunity - Broad Support for Growth

Charge's unique market opportunity is to develop and deploy infrastructure, making it simple to move and connect people across the globe, installing 5G, building wireless networks and EV charging ecosystems; delivering the infrastructure clients require today to grow with them as scale is required to meet future demands. There are a number of strong drivers of demand in this space with investments being driven from the private, enterprise and public sectors. Most recently, the Biden administration signed the Infrastructure bill into Law on November 15th, which includes key aspects of infrastructure funding that supplement private capital already at work in the following areas which directly touches upon Charge's core competencies of building infrastructure for 5G wireless networks and EV charging installation solutions:

  • EV Infrastructure​ - The administration's bill proposes a $7.5 billion investment to build out a national network of EV chargers. This is the first-ever national investment in EV charging infrastructure in the United States and is a critical element to accelerate the adoption of EVs to address the climate crisis and support domestic manufacturing jobs.​
  • Electric Buses ​- American school buses play a critical role in expanding access to education, but they are also a significant source of pollution. By investing $2.5 billion in electric buses, the bill would expand access to rural communities, helping school districts across the country buy clean, American-made, zero emission buses, and replace the yellow school bus fleet.
  • High-Speed Internet​ - Broadband internet is necessary for Americans to do their jobs, to participate equally in school learning, health care, and to stay connected. The bill's $65 billion investment would ensure every American has access to reliable high-speed internet with an historic investment in broadband infrastructure deployment.​
  • Power Infrastructure - The bill's $73 billion investment is the single largest investment in clean energy transmission in American history. It upgrades power infrastructure, including building thousands of miles of new, resilient transmission lines to facilitate the expansion of renewable energy. It would create a new Grid Deployment Authority, invest in research and development for advanced transmission and electricity distribution technologies, and promote smart grid technologies that deliver flexibility and resilience.​
  • As previously discussed, Charge's market opportunity is to build infrastructure that moves and connects people to facilitate the electrification revolution, install 5G, and build intelligent sites. The 5G Infrastructure market is expected to reach $80.5 billion by 2028 (1a) with the EV charging infrastructure market expected to reach $144.97 billion by 2028 (1b) , these combined segments create an addressable market of more than $224 billion.

EVs on U.S. roads are projected to reach 18.7 million in 2030, up from 1.7 million in 2020(2).

  • Annual sales of EVs are anticipated to exceed 3.5 million in 2030(2), or more than 20% of annual vehicle sales. Moreover, on August 5, 2021, President Biden unveiled an executive order establishing a goal for 50% of all cars to be sold as Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), or fuel-cell by 2030.
  • $15 billion in investments are proposed to build a coast-to-coast network of 500,000 charging stations. (3)
  • In February 2021, the U.S. had only 100,000 charging outlets for electric vehicles, with the majority in California with almost 32,000 outlets. (4)
  • U.S. EV Charger sales and installations are forecasted to increase from 100,000 outlets in 2021 to 13 million by 2030. (4)






2021-2022 Strategy - An Update

"Intelligent connectivity and electrification are required in almost everything all of us do. This transformation is advancing at an accelerating rate, necessitating a proper foundation and infrastructure for 5G wireless networks and EV Charging. Charge's infrastructure solutions affect both communities that are mobile and those that utilize wireless data transmission," said Charge's CEO, Founder & Chairman, Andrew Fox. "We optimize infrastructure engineering, design planning and installation, building an ecosystem critical for the intersection of mobility, communication and data transmission and addressing emerging applications such as UHD Mobile Streaming, Augmented Reality, Autonomous Vehicles, Remote Surgery, Smart Cities, and Industrial iOT - our strategy is to address the infrastructure requirements today to meet the future demands of tomorrow."

Differentiated by its hardware and software agnostic strategy, Charge's significant value proposition centers on tailoring installations to the requirements of each customer segment, creating customized electric solutions and affording clients superior economics to support organic growth:

  • Auto dealerships: Charge's team is targeting top dealer groups with multiple OEM requirements across their portfolio of brands, with expansive nationwide geographic footprints.
  • Fleet, commercial and government entities: Given the cadence and availability of commercial EV vans and alternative transit products, Charge is working with potential clients on flexible, scalable solutions to assist companies in converting fleets to EV.
  • Commercial and retail charging: The global shift with OEMs towards EVs is propagating consumers increasing demand for EV Charging on-site, which has attracted the interest and growing support of a wide variety of potential clients, including grocery stores, big box retailers, real estate mall owners, parking garages and commercial as well as private parking lots and multi-family housing developments.

In addition to the above, Charge's strategy includes:

  • Strategic Alliances: Collaborating with industry leaders offers the opportunity to create a balance of complementary products and services to offer Charge clients, incorporating network operators, hardware/equipment manufacturers, engineering services, utilities, OEMs, client-centric offerings as well as industry peers.
  • Selective, strategic, M&A: Charge continues to seek acquisition opportunities that expand its scale, enhance our services and create greater value vertically and horizontally within the supply chain of adapting infrastructure implementation for EV Charging and 5G wireless networks, DAS, small cell and intelligent sites.
  • Expand technology-enabled solutions: Whether through M&A, strategic alliances and joint ventures or proprietary development, Charge continues to research and develop mobile application opportunities and tech enabled software service solutions designed to provide a seamless offering that assists clients and consumers with an easy, digital-first experience throughout EVC and wireless network infrastructures. Additionally, Charge is pursuing R&D for OCPP (open charging point protocol) solutions for EV Charging stations, as well as the potential integration of ANS's telco maintenance and monitoring solution, a licensed cloud based platform with artificial intelligence capabilities

Last, Charge is continually investing to build a team with world class industry expertise, vision, and professionalism.
