Charge Enterprises Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Q2 Revenue of $129.5 Million

Strategy in Place to Build Seamless EV Charging and 5G Infrastructure Ecosystem

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 16, 2021 / Charge Enterprises Inc. (OTC PINK:CRGE), (“Charge” or “the Company”), connecting people everywhere with communications, infrastructure, and charging, today reported its financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Results – Selected Financial Information

Second quarter revenue was $129.5 million with a net loss of $12.7 million or $0.08 per share. This loss included deal related costs of $1.3million plus non-cash charges of $11.2 million for expenses related to options and stock compensation, depreciation, amortization of debt discounts and issue costs, and interest expenses (see financials below).

Charge’s operating units and investments generated operating income and gains totaling $1.17 million, which was offset, in part, by corporate personnel expansion, in preparation for the Company’s anticipated growth, and cost associating with funding and closing of the ANS acquisition.

As of June 30, 2021, Charge held $20.2 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities.

Reported results include: TransWorld Enterprises, Inc., acquired on May 8, 2020; GetCharged, Inc., acquired on August 27, 2020; PTGI International Carrier Services, Inc., acquired on October 2, 2020; and ANS Advanced Network Services (“ANS”) on May 21, 2021, and are therefore not comparable to year-ago periods.

Please see Charge Enterprises’ financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 filed with the OTC Markets for further details of the financials.

“During Q2 we made considerable progress on our strategy to build the communications and electrification infrastructure that will power the world’s future with 5G, and Electric Vehicle (EV) charging, while optimizing our telecommunications business that transmits calls and data in 19 countries. We believe Charge is at the forefront of the electrification revolution, establishing 5G wireless infrastructure and installing EV charging stations across the country for clients in the private, and public sectors. The platform we are constructing through acquisitions as well as our proprietary software and app developments, are designed to enable us to meet the immediate charging needs of our customers across the globe,” said Charge’s CEO Andrew Fox.

Fox continued, “We are transforming Charge through prudent investments in all areas of the business. Our unique capabilities are driving our market acceptance and setting us up for tremendous opportunities for accelerated growth.”

Key Recent Highlights

  • Acquired ANS Advanced Network Services (“ANS”), a turnkey provider of direct current (DC) power installation and telecommunications services for wireless carriers, tower owners, EV Charging (EVC), enterprise facilities, and government contracts. With a footprint that already extends from Chicago to the Northeast and down the East Coast, they are continuously building their geographic reach with nationwide support capabilities. A premier EVC and telecom network solutions provider, ANS’ proven expertise further enhances Charge’s end-to-end procurement and installation process establishing a position for future upgrade capability in the ever-growing wireless network sector and electrification revolution.
  • ANS’ integration is charging forward. ANS’ established affiliations and partnerships are being integrated into Charge’s growth strategy expanding installation capabilities for telecommunications, Network (5G, small cell), and EV industries and addressing clients’ requirements in private, enterprise, and government sectors with a seamless solution.

  • Submitted an initial 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. Charge’s goal is to be listed on Nasdaq by year-end.

Market Opportunity

Charge’s unique market opportunity is to make it simple and efficient to implement electrification across the globe, install 5G, and build networks. These combined segments are anticipated to grow to a $200 billion addressable market by 2027 (1) :

  • 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)
