Quanergy Reports Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Last 12 Months Bookings of $8.8 Million; 100% Year-over-Year Growth

Sunnyvale, CA – August 11, 2022 – Quanergy Systems, Inc. (NYSE: QNGY) (“Quanergy”), a leading provider of LiDAR sensors and smart 3D solutions, today announced financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2022.


Second Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Last 12 month bookings(1) increased 100% year-over-year to $8.8 million
  • Second quarter revenue of $1.2 million, within the guidance range, and up 31% year over year
  • Second quarter GAAP net loss of $25.7 million compared to $20.5 million in the second quarter of 2021
  • Second quarter adjusted EBITDA loss of $12.5 million compared to $6.6 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase driven by growth investments and public company costs
  • Ended the second quarter with cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $18.8 million

“The second quarter marked a continuation of our growth trajectory with the company posting its fifth consecutive year over year increase in quarterly revenue. Our business is in a growth mode, supported by strong increases in bookings, deal sizes and our customer pipeline,” said Kevin Kennedy, Chairman and CEO. “We expect our bookings and revenues to continue seeing the benefit of increased market fit, repeatability and scale, driven by the superior accuracy, performance and total cost of ownership of our security, industrial and flow management solutions.”

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $1.2 million, compared with $905 thousand in the same period of 2021, representing year over year growth of 31%.  The conversion of bookings to revenue during the quarter was constrained primarily by the ramping of the company’s manufacturing capacity and the timing of certain bookings that were received late in the quarter.

GAAP gross profit was negative $1.3 million for the quarter, compared to $145 thousand in the second quarter of 2021.  Excluding stock-based compensation expense, non-GAAP adjusted gross profit was negative $1.1 million for the quarter, compared to $166 thousand in the second quarter of 2021.  Non-GAAP adjusted gross profit in the second quarter of 2022 was adversely impacted by $1.1 million of purchasing surcharges expensed during the quarter, ongoing supply chain constraints and transitory manufacturing costs.

GAAP net loss was $25.7 million for the quarter compared to $20.5 million for the same period in 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $12.5 million compared with $6.6 million for the same period in 2021, primarily reflecting increased investments to support growth and public company costs.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had $18.8 million in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash on its balance sheet.  During the second quarter, $9.9 million was drawn from the GEM share subscription facility leaving $115 million outstanding under the facility.

Net cash from operating activities was negative $10.6 million in the second quarter of 2022 versus negative $7.8 million in the second quarter of 2021.  Free cash flow was negative $10.8 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared with negative $7.9 million in the prior year period.

(1)   Bookings are defined as non-cancellable orders expected to be delivered within 12 months of purchase order receipt.

Outlook for 2022 

  • Customer demand for Quanergy’s solutions is strong, evidenced by robust bookings growth and other indicators, including pipeline growth and land-and-expand trends
  • Quanergy currently expects 2022 bookings of $14.0 – $18.0 million, consistent with prior revenue guidance and representing 121% year over year growth at the midpoint
  • Due to the ramping of the company’s manufacturing capacity and ongoing supply chain limitations, Quanergy is taking a more cautious view of revenue conversion, guiding to Q3 2022 revenues of $1.75 – $2.5 million and full year 2022 revenues of $7.0 – $9.0 million

The Company’s expectations with respect to Q3 2022 and full year 2022 are estimated. Actual revenues for Q3 2022 and full year 2022 are subject to completion of the Company’s financial closing procedures for the period, and the actual and reported financial results for Q3 2022 and full year 2022 may materially differ. As such, the Company’s expectations with respect to Q3 2022 and full year 2022 are inherently unpredictable and actual results and outcomes could differ materially for a variety of reasons, including the factors discussed below under “Forward-Looking Statements.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to its results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), Quanergy believes the non-GAAP measures of non-GAAP adjusted gross profit, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are useful in evaluating its operating performance. Quanergy calculates non-GAAP adjusted gross profit as gross profit adding back stock-based compensation expense included in cost of goods sold. Quanergy calculates non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA as net loss adding back stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, interest expense and income, change in fair value of derivatives, gain on forgiveness of PPP loan and income tax provision (benefit). Quanergy believes that non-GAAP adjusted gross profit and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA may be helpful to investors because they provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance and may be helpful in comparing with other companies, some of which use similar non-GAAP information to supplement their GAAP results.  Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes, however, that free cash flow is an important financial measure for use in evaluating the Company’s financial performance, as it measures the Company’s ability to generate additional cash from its business operations. Quanergy defines free cash flow as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures. Free cash flow should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, net loss as a measure of our performance or net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Therefore, Quanergy believes it is important to view free cash flow as supplemental to the entire statement of cash flows. The non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only and should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP financial measures are included at the end of this press release.
