Issuer: ADS-TEC Energy GmbH / Key word(s): Half Year Results/Forecast
NÜRTINGEN, Germany – September 12, 2022 – ADS-TEC Energy plc (NASDAQ: ADSE), a global leader in battery-buffered, ultra-fast charging technology, today announced audited financials for H1 2022 and guidance for FY 2022.
The company also announced strong performance and continued growth in its key segments with contracted business in municipalities, oil and gas, hospitality, big box retail, charging point operators, EV fleets, automotive OEM dealerships, and large last-mile delivery services since launching its U.S. business in January.
ADS-TEC Energy announced a key strategic partnership with JOLT, a Dublin and Munich-based technology company focused on owning and operating ultra-fast charging solutions in urban areas. Installations have already begun at ESSO service stations in Munich, Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Dresden, Duesseldorf, and Nuremberg as well as TAMOIL stations in the Netherlands. They aim to install and operate up to 5,000 ultra-fast charging stations over the next five years.
On the product side, ADS-TEC Energy extends its battery-buffered, ultra-fast charging technology with the addition of ChargePost. Unlike the currently-available, battery-buffered ChargeBox, which consists of a separate battery-booster module and two charging dispensers, the ChargePost consolidates battery-buffering and dispensers into a single “all-in-one” system with a large display that provides revenue-generating advertising opportunities. In conjunction with this addition to the Company’s portfolio, the Company has completed a framework agreement with a European company that will receive the first 50 ChargePost systems in 2022. As part of the agreement, ADS-TEC Energy expects to deliver increasing volumes of products to encompass thousands of ChargePost units over the next few years.
Also, ADS-TEC Energy announced in August, that that the company has significantly increased the order volume for its products in fiscal year 2022 since the publication of the first financial forecast on April 28, 2022. The orders primarily involve the company’s battery-buffered, ultra-fast EV charging systems, but also include stationary storage systems for commercial and industrial applications. For contractual reasons, specific customers and projects cannot be publicly announced at this time. Our sales guidance of €80 to €100 million will not be affected by the increased order backlog, as sales from the new orders are planned for 2023.
After much due diligence and site work, we have identified the location of our U.S. manufacturing plant and expect it to be operational in Q4 2022.
