ECOtality, Inc., a leader in clean electric transportation and storage technologies, reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Q3 2012 Summary of Financial Results
Revenue in the third quarter of 2012 increased 52% to $14.4 million from $9.5 million in the third quarter of 2011. The increase in revenue was largely attributed to the continued successful roll out of ECOtality’s Blink® network of charging stations for the EV Project. The EV Project is a public-private partnership with the Department of Energy (DOE) that seeks to develop, implement and study techniques for optimizing the deployment of a commercially viable electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $4.6 million or $(0.19) per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $3.4 million or $(0.14) per basic and diluted share in the same year-ago quarter. This net loss for the third quarter of 2012 includes both a $3.5 million goodwill impairment loss; as well as a $2.5 million favorable impact in cost of goods sold resulting from an amendment to the EV Project agreement. This amendment extended the performance period under the agreement, resulting in prospective recognition of equipment depreciation at lower per-period amounts over an increased number of periods.

Combined cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2012 totaled $2.1 million, as compared to $10.2 million at December 31, 2011. The decrease in cash was primarily attributed to purchases of inventory and equipment in support of the EV Project. In early October 2012, the company received $12 million of invoice payments, which significantly improved its near-term cash position.

Q3 2012 Operational Highlights
• Instituted access fees at nearly all Level 2 EV public charger locations within the Blink network, while charging events at these public locations grew 44% in the quarter vs. Q2.
• Installed more than 1,100 Blink chargers during the quarter, bringing the total number of charging stations to approximately 8,800.
• Became the first EVSE company to surpass 1 million residential charge events.
• Installed more than 40 Blink DC Fast Chargers across the U.S. to date. Blink DC Fast Chargers are capable of providing an 80% charge in less than 30 minutes for most EVs.
• Expanded the EV Project’s geographic footprint to Atlanta, Chicago and Philadelphia, installing Blink EV charging stations in those regions. The EV project is now in nine states and 21 major metropolitan areas throughout the country.

Management Commentary
“In Q3, the introduction of access fees throughout the Blink network of public charging stations shows our early-stage commercialization efforts and further validation of our business model,” said Ravi Brar, ECOtality’s president and chief executive officer. “Our nationwide roll-out of the Blink network gained momentum in the third quarter as we expanded to three new states and achieved strong growth in the total number of charging stations.

“As we improve and expand our core charger business, we are focused on growing complementary business lines, like our industrial Minit-Charger group. In fact, we recently received a $1 million order from a major international airline for electric, aviation ground support equipment applications.

“In addition to several cost containment measures, we are also developing two new products: an improved EVSE, and our next-generation, modular industrial charging system for material handling, both of which are on track for launch in the first half of 2013. Moving ahead, we see further margin improvement as we reduce costs, expand our geographic footprint and grow our complementary lines of business.”
