NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

 

NOTE 1: NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Arcimoto, Inc. (the “Company”, “We”, “Us”, or “Our”) was incorporated in the State of Oregon on November 21, 2007. The Company’s mission is to catalyze the global shift to a sustainable transportation system. Over the past 14 years, the Company has developed a new vehicle platform designed around the needs of everyday drivers. Having approximately one-third the weight and one-third of the footprint of the average car, the Arcimoto platform’s purpose is to bring the joy of ultra-efficient, pure electric driving to the masses. To date, the Company has introduced six vehicle products built on this platform that target specific niches in the vehicle market: our flagship product, the Fun Utility Vehicle® (“FUV®”), for everyday consumer trips; the Deliverator® for last-mile delivery and general fleet utility; the Rapid Responder™ for emergency services and security; the Cameo™ for film, sports and influencers; the Arcimoto Roadster, an unparalleled pure-electric on-road thrill machine, and the Arcimoto Flatbed that has a pick-up style flatbed instead of an enclosed cargo area.

 

Concentration risk

 

The Company is dependent on one supplier for its battery supply that is a key component of its main product line. Any disruption in supply chain or significant price increase may impact Arcimoto's production volume and costs, which will affect the Company's long-term goal of sustainable profitability.

 

 

NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company is a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred significant losses since inception and management expects losses to continue for the foreseeable future. The Company has its standing ability to generate additional funds through its remaining at-the-market (“ATM”) offering of up to approximately $93,700,000, which is in excess of cash needed for the next twelve months. In the event that additional funding is needed to sustain the business, the Company anticipates being able to obtain such funds through the capital markets and/or by re-financing its long-lived assets.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information, and pursuant to the instructions to Form 10-Q promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all information and disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statement presentation. In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of March 31, 2022, and the results of its operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 and its cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. Results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022. The information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended  December 31, 2021 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 31, 2022.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and its related disclosures. Actual amounts could differ materially from those estimates.

 

Business Combinations

 

The Company accounts for business combinations under Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 805 “Business Combinations” using the acquisition method of accounting, and accordingly, the assets and liabilities of the acquired business are recorded at their fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair value of the net assets acquired is recorded as goodwill. All acquisition costs are expensed as incurred. Upon acquisition, the acquired assets and liabilities and results of operations are consolidated beginning at the acquisition date. See Note 3 - TMW Acquisition for additional information related to our acquisition that concluded in the first quarter of 2021.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost ((using the first-in, first-out method (“FIFO”)) or net realizable value. Inventories consist of purchased electric motors, electrical storage and transmission equipment, and component parts.

The Company is required to remit partial prepayments for some purchases of its inventories acquired from overseas vendors which are included in prepaid inventory. The Company is currently selling vehicles below the base cost of a finished unit. Accordingly, the Company expensed all labor and overhead as period costs and recorded an allowance to reduce inventories to net realizable value of approximately $933,000 and $826,000 as of March 31, 2022 and   December 31, 2021, respectively. The amount expensed for all labor and overhead was approximately $3,050,000 and $1,785,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021, respectively.

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets primarily consist of trade names/trademarks, proprietary technology, and customer relationships. They are amortized using the straight-line method over a period of 10 to 14 years. The Company assesses the recoverability of its finite-lived intangible assets when there are indications of potential impairment. 

 

Net Loss per Share

 

The Company’s computation of loss per share (“EPS”) includes basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is measured as the loss available to common shareholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is similar to basic EPS but presents the dilutive effect on a per share basis of potential common shares (e.g., common stock warrants and common stock options) as if they had been converted at the beginning of the periods presented, or issuance date, if later. Potential common shares that have an anti-dilutive effect (i.e., those that increase income per share or decrease loss per share) are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS.

 

Basic and diluted loss per common share is the same for all periods presented because all common stock warrants and common stock options outstanding were anti-dilutive.

 

During the three months ended  March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company excluded the outstanding Employee Equity Plans (“EEP”) and other securities summarized below calculated using the Treasury Stock Method, which entitled the holders thereof to ultimately acquire shares of common stock, from its calculation of earnings per share, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

Accounting Pronouncements Recently Adopted

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” (“ASU 2016-02”) which supersedes ASC Topic 840, Leases. ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability on their balance sheets for all the leases with terms greater than 12 months. Based on certain criteria, leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, a lessee is permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset not to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. If a lessee makes this election, it should recognize lease expense for such leases generally on a straight-line basis over the lease term. In November 2019, the FASB delayed the effective date for Topic 842 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020 for private companies and emerging growth companies, and interim periods within those years, with early adoption permitted. In June 2020, the FASB issued ASU No 2020-05 that further delayed the effective date of Topic 842 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. We adopted this new standard on January 1, 2022. In transition, lessees and lessors are required to recognize and measure leases at the beginning of the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, “Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements” that allows entities to apply the provisions of the new standard at the effective date, as opposed to the earliest period presented under the modified retrospective transition approach and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The modified retrospective approach includes a number of optional practical expedients primarily focused on leases that commenced before the effective date of Topic 842, including continuing to account for leases that commence before the effective date in accordance with previous guidance, unless the lease is modified. Most of the Company's operating lease commitments are subjected to the new standard and recognized as operating lease liabilities and right-of-use assets upon adoption of Topic 842, which increased the total assets and total liabilities that the Company reports relative to such amounts prior to adoption. The adoption of ASU 2016-02 did not have a material impact on Arcimoto’s Statement of Operations. Upon adoption on January 1, 2022, the Company recorded an operating lease right-of-use asset for approximately $1,800,000 and an operating lease liability of approximately $1,900,000. See Note 8 "Leases" for further disclosures.

 

Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

 

The Company continually assesses any new accounting pronouncements to determine their applicability. When it is determined that a new accounting pronouncement affects the Company’s financial reporting, the Company undertakes a study to determine the consequences of the change to its financial statements and assures that there are proper controls in place to ascertain that the Company’s financial statements properly reflect the change.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (“ASU 2016-13”) which replaces the current incurred loss methodology with an expected loss methodology which is referred to as the current expected credit loss (“CECL”) methodology. The measurement of credit losses under the CECL methodology is applicable to financial assets measured at amortized cost, including loans receivables and trace accounts receivables and held-to-maturity debt securities. It also applies to off-balance sheet credit exposures not accounted for as insurance (loan commitments, standby letters of credit, financial guarantees and other similar instruments) and net investment in leases recognized by a lessor in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 842 – Leases. ASU 2016-13 also made changes to the accounting for available-for-sale debt securities and requires credit losses to be presented as an allowance rather than as a write-down on such securities management does not intend to sell or believes that it is more likely than not they will be required to sell. The Company is required to adopt ASU 2016-13 on January 1, 2023 and has not completed its assessment of ASU 2016-13’s impact on its financial statements.

NOTE 3: TMW ACQUISITION

 

On January 23, 2021, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Tilting Motor Works, Inc. (“TMW”), a Washington corporation (the “Seller”) and its owner. TMW engages in the design, production, sales, and installation of a bolt on kit that converts a two wheeled motorcycle into a tilting three wheeled motorcycle. TMW was acquired to utilize the tilting technology in new three wheeled micro-mobility vehicles.

 

Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, the Company paid cash of $1,754,083 and issued 436,339 shares of Company common stock and assumed certain liabilities as consideration for substantially all of the TMW’s assets. The common shares issued were unregistered and are subject to sales restrictions under the Securities Act of 1933. The Company valued the shares issued in the transaction at the average of opening and closing price on the date of acquisition with a 12.5% discount for lack of marketability. The acquisition closed on February 4, 2021 and was recorded as a business combination as the set of assets and activities acquired met the definition of a business. 

 

The purchase price allocation was finalized in the first quarter of 2021 and is as follows:

On December 23, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement to purchase certain buildings totaling approximately 187,000 square feet, and approximately 6.6 acres of real estate located within the City of Eugene, Oregon. The Company has agreed to purchase the properties commonly known as 311 Chambers Street and 1480 West 3rd Avenue, from RLA Holdings, LLC for the total purchase price of $10,250,000. The Company pledged $80,000 as earnest money for the transaction. During the first quarter of 2021, an additional 4.1 acres and 33,000 square feet of buildings to the south commonly known as 1593 W. 5th Ave. Eugene, Oregon was added to the purchase agreement totaling $2,500,000. The total sales price was increased to $12,750,000. The purchase was contingent upon the Company’s complete and unconditional approval of: (i) the property and its physical condition, zoning and land use restrictions, and all systems, utilities, and access rights pertaining to the property; (ii) the seller’s documents; (iii) securing financing; (iv) a Phase I environmental assessment and all appropriate inquiries investigation so as to protect the Company under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act ("CERCLA"); and (v) anything else the Company deems necessary. On March 15, 2021, the due diligence was completed and the Company paid the $80,000 earnest money. On April 19, 2021, the Company closed and completed the purchase of the properties described above.

NOTE 8: LEASES

 

Operating Leases

 

The Company has active operating lease arrangements for office space and production facilities. The Company is typically required to make fixed minimum rent payments relating to its right to use the underlying leased asset. In accordance with the adoption of ASC 842, the Company recorded right-of-use assets and related lease liabilities for these leases as of January 1, 2022.

 

The Company has lease agreements which contain both lease and non-lease components, which it has elected to account for as a single lease component when the payments are fixed. As such, variable lease payments not dependent on an index or rate, such as real estate taxes, common area maintenance, and other costs that are subject to fluctuation from period to period are not included in lease measurement. The Company includes extensions in the determination of the lease term when it is reasonably certain that such options will be exercised.  

 

The Company’s lease agreements do not provide an implicit borrowing rate. Therefore, the Company used a benchmark approach to derive an appropriate incremental borrowing rate. The Company benchmarked itself against other companies of similar credit ratings and comparable credit quality and derived an incremental borrowing rate to discount each of its lease liabilities based on the remaining lease term. 

 

The components of operating lease expense recorded in the statement of operations were as follows:

 

   

Three Months Ended March 31, 2022

 

Operating lease cost

  $ 172,465  

Short-term lease cost

NOTE 11: COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Litigation

 

On March 6, 2020, the Company filed a complaint (“the Complaint”) against Ayro, Inc. (“Ayro”), accusing Ayro of patent infringement in Federal District Court for the Western District of Texas, Waco Division (Case No. 6:20-cv-00176-ADA) (“the Ayro Litigation”). In the Complaint, Arcimoto alleged that Ayro’s 311 two-seater electric vehicles infringe U.S. Patent 8,985,255 (the “255 Patent”). The Complaint asked for monetary damages and enhanced damages due to willful infringement of the 255 Patent by Ayro. On March 27, 2020, Ayro answered the Complaint, denying liability and asserting counterclaims of noninfringement and patent invalidity. During the first quarter of 2021, the parties reached a settlement and submitted a request to the court to dismiss the case.

 

The Company, Mark Frohnmayer and Douglas Campoli have been sued in two putative class actions in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Barnette v. Arcimoto, Inc. et al. (Case No. 21-cv-02143 filed on April 19, 2021) and Gibson v. Arcimoto, Inc. et al. (Case No. 21-cv-02870 filed on May 20, 2021). The putative class actions purported to be on behalf of all those who purchased the Company’s common stock between February 14, 2018 and March 22, 2021. The allegations in the actions are based on the research report dated March 23, 2021 produced by Bonitas Research, LLC, a short seller of the Company’s common stock. The Barnette and Gibson actions were consolidated as In re Arcimoto, Inc. Securities Litigation (Case No. 21-cv-02143) on July 14, 2021, and a consolidated amended complaint was filed on September 20, 2021. Briefing on the defendants’ motion to dismiss the consolidated amended complaint was completed on March 11, 2022. No motion to certify a class has been filed at this time. The company believes it has substantial defenses to the claims asserted in this lawsuit and intends to vigorously defend this action. 

 

The Company is also a nominal defendant in two shareholder derivative lawsuits filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Liu v. Frohnmayer et al. (Case No. 21-cv-03702 filed on June 30, 2021) and Carranza v. Frohnmayer et al. (Case No. 21-cv-03888 filed on July 9, 2021), and a shareholder derivative lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Oregon, Laguerre v. Frohnmayer et al. (Case No. 21-cv-00982 filed on June 30, 2021). Mark Frohnmayer, Douglas Campoli, Terry Becker, Nancy Calderon, Joshua Scherer, and Jesse Eisler are named as defendants in all three shareholder derivative suits. Jeff Curl is named as a defendant in Laguerre and Liu. The allegations in the shareholder derivative lawsuits largely arise from the Bonitas report referenced above. The Liu and Carranza actions were consolidated on August 4, 2021 as In re Arcimoto, Inc. Derivative Litigation (Lead Case No. 21-cv-03702). These derivative actions are currently stayed. The Company believes it has substantial defenses to the claims asserted and intends to vigorously defend the actions.

 

The Company possesses insurance coverage to cover the litigation expenses with a deductible of $1,500,000. This amount was accrued in the previous year.

 

Additionally, from time to time, we might become involved in lawsuits, claims, investigations, proceedings, and threats of litigation relating to intellectual property, commercial arrangements and other matters arising in the ordinary course of our business.

NOTE 12: RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Arcimoto may, from time to time, sell to its management and employees at a discounted price. Sales to such parties for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were not material. Also, from time to time, the Company may make certain purchases from an entity owned by the Chief Operating Officer. During the first quarter of 2022, the purchases were not material and the amount owed to the related party was zero at March 31, 2022.

 

On April 25, 2022, the Company entered into a $4,500,000 convertible promissory note agreement with Ducera Investments LLC, a related party because a partner at Ducera is also a member of the Board of Directors at Arcimoto. Further disclosures are presented in Note 14 - Subsequent Events.

 

 

NOTE 13: SEGMENT REPORTING

 

Segment

 

Arcimoto has three reportable segments that are identified based on its product lines and services: fun utility vehicles (“FUV”), rental and TMW. The FUV segment consists of the sale of its electric vehicle product lines while the rental segment‘s operations involve generating revenue from the short-term rental of its electric vehicles via various channels or networks. The TMW segment, as discussed above, engages in the design, production, sales, and installation of a bolt on kit that converts a two wheeled motorcycle into a tilting three wheeled motorcycle.

 

The reportable segments were identified based on how the Chief Operations Decision Maker (“CODM”), which in the Company’s case, is the Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), allocates resources to the various operations. The following tables disclose the financial information used by the CODM in allocating Arcimoto’s resources.

There are two types of subsequent events: (1) recognized, or those that provide additional evidence with respect to conditions that existed at the date of the balance sheet, including the estimates inherent in the process of preparing financial statements, and (2) non-recognized, or those that provide evidence with respect to conditions that did not exist at the date of the balance sheet but arose subsequent to that date.

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events through the date the financial statements were issued and up to the time of filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The discussions that follow reflect this evaluation.

 

Subsequent to March 31, 2022, Arcimoto raised approximately $2,262,000 (net of offering costs) through its Equity Distribution Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with Canaccord Genuity LLC (the “Agent”), pursuant to which the Company may offer and sell, from time to time, through or to the Agent, as sales agent up to $100,000,000 of shares (“Shares”) of its common stock.

 

On April 25, 2022, the Company ("debtor") entered into a $4,500,000 convertible promissory note agreement with Ducera Investments LLC ("Creditor") whereby the Debtor agrees to pay the creditor the amount borrowed plus interest accrued at an annual rate of 10%. The term of this note is five years unless conversion privileges are exercised. The Creditor has the option to convert the promissory note at any time prior to the maturity date, in full or in part, into the number of shares of common stock ("Common Stock"), no par value, of the Company equal to the amount determined by dividing the principal amount of this note plus the accrued interest by $7.00 ("Conversion Price"). At any time prior to the maturity date, the debtor may convert this note, in full or in part, at the Conversion Price provided that, in order to exercise the conversion (i) the closing share price of the Common Stock on the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Closing Share Price”) for the thirty (30) consecutive trading days prior to, and including, the conversion date exceeds the per share price required to provide the Holder with shares having a market value of at least 4.5 times $4,500,000 upon conversion.

 

On May 6, 2022, Arcimoto made a down payment of approximately $1,372,000 and financed approximately $2,059,000 for a purchase of capital equipment at an interest rate of approximately 4.6% for a term of 48 months.

 

On May 10, 2022, Arcimoto financed approximately $69,000 for a purchase of capital equipment at an interest rate of approximately 7.7% for a term of 51 months.

Overview

 

Arcimoto, Inc. (the “Company”, “We”, “Us”, or “Our”) was incorporated in the State of Oregon on November 21, 2007, with the mission to catalyze the shift to a sustainable transportation system. We build light, electric, ultra-efficient vehicles that are incredibly fun to drive for a reason. Put simply, our vision is an untouched planet and more livable cities.

 

Today’s city is dominated by the traditional four-wheeled vehicle. We pave almost half our urban land for these giant, multi-ton, extractive machines that we almost always drive alone or with just one other person and leave parked and rusting for most of their useful lives.

 

At Arcimoto, we believe that if we rightsize, electrify, and better utilize our vehicles, we can reclaim our shared space, help clean our skies, and make cities more livable for us all.

 

We have developed a new, human-scale three-wheeled electric vehicle platform, featuring dual-motor front wheel drive, a battery pack sized to meet the range needs of the vast majority of typical trips, and an optimized center of gravity for a nimble, balanced driving experience. On this platform, we currently manufacture a family of products targeting a wide range of everyday uses: the Fun Utility Vehicle® (“FUV®”), for daily driving, rideshare share and rental, the Deliverator for last-mile delivery of essential food and goods, the Rapid Responder® for emergency services and security, the Flatbed for general fleet utility, and the Roadster, a pure fun machine that drives like nothing else on the road.

 

We launched production of the FUV® in the third quarter of 2019, prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2019, we produced 57 vehicles and sold 46 to customers. In 2020, Arcimoto produced 117 vehicles and sold 97. In 2021 Arcimoto produced 331 vehicles and sold 190 new and two pre-owned. During the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, we temporarily ceased production in order to move into our new production facilities in anticipation of future production growth. In addition, we certified a new battery module with new battery cells. In spite of the production transition and battery certification, Arcimoto produced 26 vehicles and delivered 24 new vehicles to customers during the first quarter of 2022. Production restarted in a new production line by the end of the first quarter of 2022.

 

The Company’s primary focus is on volume production planning in order to push to sustainable profitability. On April 19, 2021, the Company purchased an approximately 220,000 square foot facility to expand production capabilities. The Company is preparing the final draft of its application for the Federal Department of Energy’s Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program (“ATVMLP”) to secure funds necessary to execute our growth strategy. 

 

Platform and Technologies

 

Arcimoto spent its first decade developing and refining eight generations of a new three-wheeled electric vehicle platform: a light-footprint, nimble reverse-trike architecture that features a low center of gravity for stability on the road; dual-motor front-wheel drive for enhanced traction; can be parked three to a space while carrying two large adults comfortably, and is more efficient, by an order of magnitude, than today’s gas-powered cars. The Company has secured 13 utility patents on various constituent technologies and vehicle platform architectures. As announced on June 10, 2020, Arcimoto has teamed with Munro & Associates to evaluate Arcimoto’s manufacturing processes and supply chain management in order to drive down costs and begin high-volume production of Arcimoto ultra-efficient electric vehicles. This project, which is estimated to take two years, progressed significantly, primarily due to the purchase of a new production facility, continued production ramp planning, and product architecture sourcing-selection across all major vehicle subsystems.

 

 

Products 

 

Arcimoto’s vehicle products are based on the Arcimoto Platform, which includes the basic lower framed structure and certain key components of our vehicles. While intended to serve very different market segments, an estimated 90% of the constituent parts are the same between all products currently in production and development.

 

FUV® 

 

Arcimoto’s flagship product is the FUV. The FUV delivers a thrilling ride experience, exceptional maneuverability, comfort for two passengers with cargo, highly-efficient parking (three FUVs to a single parking space), and ultra-efficient operation, all at an affordable price. Over time, we anticipate offering the FUV with several option packages to meet the needs of a variety of customers.

 

We led with a consumer product because we are a consumer-first brand. We believe individuals should be able to choose more efficient, more affordable, and lighter-footprint mobility solutions, so that more of us can participate in the transition to a sustainable transportation future.

 

Rapid Responder®

 

The Rapid Responder® was announced on February 15, 2019. The pure-electric Rapid Responder® is developed on the Arcimoto platform, and designed to perform specialized emergency, security and law enforcement services at a fraction of the cost and environmental impact of traditional combustion vehicles. The Rapid Responder® aims to deliver first responders to incidents more quickly and affordably than traditional emergency response vehicles.

 

Arcimoto is initially targeting the more than 50,000 fire stations across the United States that use traditional fire engines and large automobiles to respond to calls. Arcimoto also plans to market the Rapid Responder® as a solution for campus security and law enforcement applications.

 

Deliverator®

 

Development of the Deliverator was officially announced on March 19, 2019 with the reveal of the first Deliverator prototype. The Deliverator is currently in production.

 

The Deliverator is a pure electric, last-mile delivery solution designed to more quickly, efficiently, and affordably get goods where they need to go. We plan for the Deliverator to be customizable to carry a wide array of products, from pizza, groceries, and cold goods to the 65 billion parcels delivered worldwide annually.

 

 

Cameo (™)

 

Arcimoto completed a prototype of the Cameo, an FUV equipped with a rear-facing rear seat and a modified roof built for on-road filming in September 2020. We teased the Cameo prototype in several Arcimoto videos in September 2020 and have used the Cameo to shoot all of our own driving footage since its on-roading. Development of the Cameo is still in the planning stages.

 

The Cameo is aimed at the film industry, as well as the growing influencer and Do-It-Yourself (“DIY”) film market. The Cameo is currently available to prospective customers as a custom-modified FUV.

 

Arcimoto Roadster

 

The Arcimoto Roadster prototype was first introduced in a video released October 30, 2020. Conceived as a pure platform fun machine, the Roadster offers a lower center of gravity, lower overall weight, and potentially improved aerodynamics. We announced the formal development of the Roadster product, in collaboration with industry partners on November 16, 2020. The first production Roadster was unveiled on July 26, 2021.

 

Arcimoto Flatbed

 

The Arcimoto Flatbed prototype was introduced at the FUV & Friends Summer Showcase on July 26, 2021. Similar to the Deliverator, it eschews the rear seat, this time for a pickup-style flatbed instead of an enclosed cargo area. Arcimoto announced a collaboration with an Eugene-based industry partner, and displayed a modular, expandable flatbed that could be used for the Flatbed model.

 

Autonomous Driverless Arcimoto

 

Our long-term goal is to offer the market one of the lowest cost, most efficient “last mile” human and goods shared transport solutions for the future road. We intend that our platform will provide a ready foundation for remote control and self-driving technology deployment, and have begun to demonstrate that capability.

 

At the FUV & Friends Summer Showcase on July 26, 2021, Arcimoto demonstrated progress on torque vectoring and other drive system software improvements, including “drive-by-wire” functionality, a foundational layer for a true driverless control system.

 

The first step toward that driverless control system was also on display at the Summer Showcase. A technology company, based in South San Francisco, demonstrated the first ever driverless FUV using remote control, a step toward ride-on-demand, where riders will be able to summon a vehicle to their location and then hop in and drive.

 

Development has continued to progress to the point where a vehicle was operated without a human on board.

 

Sales and Distribution Model

 

Arcimoto’s sales and distribution model is direct. Customers place vehicle orders on our website, and the vehicle product will be delivered directly to the end user via a common carrier or our own delivery fleet. The website ordering and vehicle configuration system is functional, with additional development planned to further automate the sales process.

 

On October 26, 2020, we announced a partnership with DHL to provide nationwide home delivery of the FUV. They are currently handling the bulk of our customer deliveries.

 

 

 

Rental and Rideshare Model

 

We plan to augment this direct web purchase process with experience rental in key markets. This rental model gives prospective customers a direct experience with the physical product before purchasing. We opened our first Company-owned rental operations in San Diego, California and Eugene, Oregon in the second quarter of 2021. Additional rental vehicles are available at our franchise rental location, Arcimoto Key West in Key West, Florida, and at GoCars in San Francisco, California and various locations in Florida, Washington and Arizona. We entered into an agreement with the Graduate Hotel in Eugene, Oregon in the third quarter of 2021 to rent FUVs to hotel guests.

 

We plan to open additional Arcimoto-owned and operated rental locations in favorable markets in the future, while also further developing partner rental operations, and aggressively pursuing partners for those operations.

 

Service

 

We are pursuing three different models for service of the FUV:

 

Service-on-demand

 

Our initial model is on-demand and on-site vehicle service by Arcimoto technicians or Arcimoto-authorized technicians. Service-on-demand will likely be the primary model during our West Coast release as the majority of the vehicles will be geographically located relatively near the factory or a mobile technician. We intend for customers to request service either through the Arcimoto mobile app or by calling a 24-hour service number.

 

In-market partnership

 

We are currently reviewing potential service partners located in our key distribution regions. We have contracted with Agero Driver Assistance Services, Inc. to provide our customers with roadside assistance. We are currently reviewing Agero’s network of pre-approved third-party service providers, as well as other third-party service providers, to perform service on Arcimoto vehicles. We are currently selecting, training, and certifying providers as we expand.

 

Rental facility service

 

We employ Arcimoto service technicians at some of our rental locations, depending on the dealer laws in the state. Customers near those rental locations are able to deliver their vehicle to that location for service needs.

 

Vehicle Financing

 

We have secured multiple partners nationwide to apply for consumer financing on our website. We have expanded financing options for customers to pursue personal financing to purchase our FUVs.

 

Management Opportunities, Challenges and Risks

 

Demand, Production and Capital

 

Retail and Commercial FUV Pre-orders

 

As of March 31, 2022, we had 5,662 net FUV pre-orders placed with small refundable deposits or fleet order commitments, representing a slight decrease of 112, or approximately 2%, from the 5,774 pre-orders as of December 31, 2021.

 

 

We consider pre-orders to be strong sales leads, and use these leads as an indicator of market demand. Pre-orders are made up of small refundable cash deposits from individual retail customers and distribution agreements or nonbinding letters of intent from commercial customers that may or may not have deposited cash. The distribution of pre-orders since inception through March 31, 2022, is presented in the table below:

Remaining

    3,856     $ 412,200       1,538     $ 100       5,394     $ 412,300  

 

In the third quarter of 2019, we completed vehicle testing. Arcimoto tested to verify robustness of its vehicle design, to demonstrate compliance with all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards required for motorcycles, and to demonstrate proper function of voluntarily-added equipment such as the FUV’s 3+3 seat belts. Following completion of compliance testing, we initiated the sales process with our first customers. As sales are completed, pre-order and reservation fees are applied to the purchase price and balances due are collected on delivery.

 

Currently, we are dependent on a single supplier for our battery cells. During the third quarter of 2021, we received two types of battery cells, one of which has been discontinued. In order to use these cells, our engineering team is currently developing a module that will enable the utilization of these battery cell types. Upon development, regulatory testing will be conducted for compliance with government safety standards. This development and testing will occur concurrently with the planned pause in production discussed in the paragraph above. One of the battery cells was certified while another is in the last stages of certification. We do not expect any challenges in regard to the certification process.

 

The average sales price, including custom upgrade options, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $20,229, which is $2,329 or 13% above the base model price of $17,900. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, Arcimoto produced 26 vehicles, and delivered 24 new vehicles to customers. 19 vehicles were placed into service in rental operations and no vehicles were placed into service for Arcimoto fleet operations.

 

We have contracted with a constellation of industry partners to evaluate Arcimoto’s manufacturing processes and supply chain management in order to drive down costs and begin high-volume production of Arcimoto ultra-efficient electric vehicles. To date, substantial progress has been made in understanding the cost models for future vehicles based on current and anticipated supply chain conditions, ergonomic studies, planning for failure modes and effects analysis (“FMEA”), baseline ride-drive characteristics, mapping out European Union (“EU”) certification, cost reduction for manufacturing, lean manufacturing analysis, vehicle architecture sourcing-selection for all major subsystems and the technology roadmap for future vehicles and marketing roadmap.

 

We have conducted multiple pilot programs with various partners to add credence to the business case for a light weight rapid response electric vehicle. Rapid responders have been well received under these pilot programs.

 

We have several ongoing Deliverator pilot programs with individuals, municipalities, and corporate fleets. We have completed the first phase of tool-up for manufacture and production of the Deliverator, and we will continue to build Deliverators in low volume through the remainder of 2022, to support commercial new pilot programs.

 

Mean-Lean-Machine ("MLM")

 

We currently have received 773 pre-orders or $77,300 cash for our MLM product line. The MLM is an electric three-wheeled bicycle that incorporates our tilting technology.

 

 

Trends in Cash Flow, Capital Expenditures and Operating Expenses

 

Our capital expenditures are typically difficult to project beyond the short term given the number and breadth of our core projects at any given time and may further be impacted by uncertainties in future market conditions. We are simultaneously ramping new products in the Deliverator and Roadster, micro mobility, ramping manufacturing facilities in the new 10-acre campus and piloting the development and manufacture of new battery module technologies, and the pace of our capital spend may vary depending on overall priority among projects, the pace at which we meet milestones, production adjustments to and among our various products, increased capital efficiencies and the addition of new projects. Owing and subject to the foregoing as well as the pipeline of announced projects under development and all other continuing infrastructure growth, we currently expect our capital expenditures to be between $35,000,000 to $40,000,000 in 2022 and each of the next two fiscal years.

 

Our business has been consistently generating negative cash flow from operations, some of this is offset with better working capital management resulting in shorter days sales outstanding than days payable outstanding. We are also likely to see heightened levels of capital expenditures during certain periods depending on the specific pace of our capital-intensive projects and rising material prices and increasing supply chain and labor expenses resulting from changes in global trade conditions and labor availability associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, while our stock price was significantly elevated during parts of 2021, we saw higher levels of exercise of investor warrants and options from employee equity plans, which obligates us to deliver shares pursuant to the terms of those agreements. Overall, we expect our ability to be self-funding to be achieved as we approach a sales volume of approximately 7,500 vehicles per year and as long as macroeconomic factors support growth in our sales, and engineering cost reductions and volume pricing improve materials cost.

 

Operating expenses increased by approximately 65%, or $3,739,000, for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. This increase was primarily due to, among other things, increased sales and marketing costs and research and development (“R&D”) expenses. Sales and marketing expenses increased as we ramped up our marketing efforts to achieve higher levels of sales growth. Research and development expenses increased as we pursued new and more efficient methods of production processes and continued to improve our technological design and development of our product lines. The number of employees increased by approximately 61%, from 170 as of March 31, 2021, to 273 employees as of March 31, 2022. The increased staff was needed to build out all parts of the Company for selling and servicing vehicles.

 

 

 

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

In the future, the Company may not have the capital resources necessary to further the development of existing and/or new products.

 

Our current cost structure, along with other factors including market penetration in the states we are currently doing business, does not allow us to achieve profitability. Although we are constantly trying to improve our cost structure and market penetration, we may not succeed to the point where we can achieve profitability consistently. Also, Arcimoto may not be able to reduce costs to the level necessary to unlock the market potential for our products.

 

We may, from time to time, be subject to recalls due to, among other things, software glitches and/or faulty parts which may require us to provide warranty repairs to our customers. These additional warranties may have a negative impact on our financial resources, which may in turn, negatively impact our financial results.

 

Although we expect our acquisition of Tilting Motor Works, Inc. ("TMW") to positively impact our overall financial performance, the results may not justify our intangible asset values. If this occurs, we will have to consider the recoverability of our values placed on our intangible assets.

 

New Accounting Pronouncements

 

For a description of new accounting pronouncements, please refer to the “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in Note 2 to our Condensed Financial Statements under Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 31, 2022.

 

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, costs and expenses and related disclosures. We base our estimates on historical experience, as appropriate, and on various other assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances. Changes in the accounting estimates are reasonably likely to occur from period to period. Accordingly, actual results could differ significantly from the estimates made by our management. We evaluate our estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis. To the extent that there are material differences between these estimates and actual results, our future financial statement presentation, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows will be affected. See Note 2 to our Condensed Financial Statements under Part I, Item I of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost (using the first-in, first-out method (“FIFO”)) or net realizable value. We expense all labor and overhead costs as we are currently selling vehicles below the base cost of a finished unit. As such, our inventory costs consist mainly of material costs. Due to external economic conditions, including supply chain issues and inflation, among other things, such costs may fluctuate significantly over time and affect our results of operations. There had been no significant fluctuations in costs of the materials used in our inventory during the first quarter of 2022.

Total revenue decreased approximately $744,000 or 53% for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to the same period last year. The decrease was primarily due to a decline in our FUV sales as we temporarily ceased production in the first quarter of 2022 in order to move into our new production facilities in anticipation of future production growth. In addition, we certified a new battery module with new battery cells.

 

We had approximately $650,000 in revenue, comprising approximately $488,000 in net revenue from the sales of our vehicles, approximately $122,000 in TMW net revenue and approximately $40,000 in net revenue from used vehicles, rental fees, parts, delivery fees, merchandise and outside metal fabrication during the three months ended March 31, 2022. We had approximately $1,394,000 in revenue, comprising approximately $1,245,000 in revenue from the sales of our vehicles, approximately $92,000 and approximately $57,000  in revenue from merchandise and outside metal fabrication during the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

 

 

 

 

Cost of Goods Sold

 

Cost of goods sold increased by approximately $803,000 or 25%, primarily driven by higher payroll costs due to additional hiring and company-wide cost of living payroll increases and higher manufacturing overhead as a result of ramping up our production operations and to a lesser extent, higher inventory losses due to purchase price variance.

 

We had approximately $4,047,000 in cost of goods sold (“COGS”), comprising approximately $493,000 for FUV material and freight costs from the sale of our vehicles, $135,000 related to our rental operations, $91,000 related to TMW, $70,000 in warranty costs, $208,000 from an adjustment to inventory for purchase price variance and scrap, and approximately $3,050,000 in manufacturing, labor, and overhead, during the three months ended March 31, 2022.  Included in the manufacturing, labor and overhead costs are payroll and employee-related costs of $1,900,000 while the remaining costs consist of consulting services, freight, and depreciation, among other things.

 

We had approximately $3,245,000 in COGS, comprising approximately $1,259,000 for FUV material and freight costs from the sale of our vehicles,  $67,000 related to TMW, $150,000 in warranty costs, $(16,000) from an adjustment to inventory for purchase price variance and scrap and other costs, and approximately $1,785,000  in manufacturing, labor, and overhead, during the three months ended March 31, 2021

 

 

Operating Expenses

 

Research and Development (R&D) Expenses

 

R&D expenses increased by $1,499,000 or 62% during the three months ended March 31, 2022 as compared to the same period last year primarily due to higher costs incurred in developing and/or improving new technology in connection with our product lines and also designing production processes in anticipation of future increases in production volume. The increase was due to higher consulting services and payroll costs as a result of additional hiring and cost of living payroll increases. R&D expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were approximately $3,907,000 and $2,408,000, respectively.

 

Sales and Marketing (S&M) Expenses

 

S&M expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were approximately $2,927,000 and $964,000, respectively. The primary reasons for the increase in sales and marketing expenses during the three months ended March 31, 2022 of approximately $1,962,000, or 203%, as compared to the prior period was increased costs related to the expansion of the sales and marketing department and higher activities to market our product lines via various forms ofcustomer communications. As markets opened up after the COVID-19 pandemic, we have expanded into new markets, conducted road shows and incurred expenses to increase our brand awareness. We have hired key sales and marketing personnel to support our sales growth strategy.

 

General and Administrative (G&A) Expenses

 

G&A expenses consist primarily of personnel and facilities costs related to executives, finance, human resources, information technology, as well as legal fees for professional and contract services. G&A expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were approximately $2,699,000 as compared to approximately $2,421,000 for the same period last year, representing an increase of approximately $278,000, or 11%. The increase was primarily due to, among other things, higher payroll and payroll-related costs as a result of cost of living payroll increases and additional employees needed to support anticipated business growth.

 

 

Interest Expense

 

Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was approximately $50,000, as compared to $52,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2021. 

 

Other Income

 

Other income of approximately $25,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 primarily consists of among other things, non-refundable deposits that were forfeited due to order cancellations.

 

Other income of approximately $14,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Cash Flows from Operating Activities 

 

Our cash flows from operating activities are significantly affected by our cash outflows to support the growth of our business in areas such as R&D, sales and marketing and G&A expenses. Our operating cash flows are also affected by our working capital needs to support personnel related expenditures, accounts payable, inventory purchases and other current assets and liabilities.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, cash used in operating activities was approximately $13,471,000, which included a net loss of approximately $12,954,000, non-cash charges of $2,253,000 and changes in net working capital and other items that contributed to cash and cash equivalent reduction of approximately $2,771,000. Our net loss was primarily due to, among other things, (1) a decrease in revenue compared to the same period last year as we temporarily ceased production to move into our new production facilities, (2) spending on R&D expenditures to develop and improve new technology in connection with our product lines and new designs of our production processes in anticipation of future increases in production volume, and (3) spending on S&M expenses as we increased our sales force in order to ramp up our marketing efforts and activities to increase our brand awareness and conduct road shows. Our inventory increased in anticipation of future sales and production growth while our accounts payable decreased, primarily due to timing.

 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, cash used in operating activities was approximately $5,544,000, which included a net loss of approximately $4,743,000, non-cash charges of approximately $(1,849,000), and changes in net working capital items of approximately $1,047,000.

 

Cash Flows from Investing Activities

 

Cash flows from investing activities primarily relate to the capital expenditures to support our growth in operations, including investments in manufacturing equipment and tooling. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we paid approximately $1,486,000 to purchase property and equipment in anticipation of our future production growth.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we paid approximately $598,000 to purchase property and equipment, approximately $24,000 for security deposits, and $1,754,000 as part of the TMW acquisition.

 

Cash Flows from Financing Activities

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, net cash provided by financing activities was approximately $3,214,000, compared to net cash provided by financing activities of approximately $15,120,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Cash flows provided by financing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2021 mainly comprised of proceeds from the issuance of common stock through our S-3 offering of approximately $14,070,000 (net of offering costs of approximately $544,000), proceeds from exercise of stock options and warrants of approximately $1,786,000, proceeds from equipment notes of approximately $204,000, reduced by repayments of notes payable of approximately $247,000, repayment of equipment notes of approximately $89,000, payments on capital lease obligations amounting to approximately $61,000.
