REE Automotive Announces Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Business plan on track towards firm orders and start of production

TEL AVIV, Israel, March 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- REE Automotive Ltd. (NASDAQ: REE) (“REE” or the “Company”), an automotive technology leader and provider of electric vehicle (EV) platforms, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2021. REE is focused on executing milestone deliverables on its signed strategic collaborations relating to various types of commercial delivery vehicles and people movers, with capabilities to integrate multiple levels of autonomy.

Daniel Barel, REE’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer said: “In 2019 and 2020, we focused on enhancing our capabilities, expanding our addressable market, validating our technology and building our supply chain. In 2021, we continued these efforts and began building out our partner ecosystem. The numerous milestones and strategic collaborations achieved over the past year established the foundation for an exciting next twelve months as we move towards establishing our production capabilities and commercializing our products. With the upcoming commencement of commercial trials for the P7 platform, REE is one step closer to obtaining order commitments and serial production. Additionally, we continue to advance other initiatives to lead the transformation of the automotive space with our REEcorner™ technology to enable a new generation of vehicles Powered by REE.”

Commercial Developments & Outlook

Throughout 2021, REE actively executed its business plan, establishing numerous strategic collaborations with industry leaders as it expanded its our footprint across segments. The REEcorner™, a compact module that integrates critical powertrain components in the corner between the wheel and the chassis, together with REE’s drive-brake-steer-by wire (“x-by-wire”) technology, enable REE to offer the industry’s flattest, most modular vehicle platform. This enables fleet owners and mission specific companies to design commercial EVs that are optimized for their requirements, with lower TCO and higher volumetric efficiency.

After validating our REEcorner™ technology and building our supply chain in 2019 and 2020, REE focused on expanding its market footprint and building a partner ecosystem in 2021 to enable and accelerate adoption of the Company’s products. This includes collaborations with partners not only to develop full vehicle offerings, but also provide a comprehensive ecosystem of enabling capabilities and services, such as vehicle financing, charging infrastructure, aftersales & service as well as Data-as-a-Service (“DaaS”), for a full turn-key solution intended to enable and expedite a smooth transition for our customers from ICE to EV fleets.

The Company expects to continue executing on its commercial programs, including the delivery of full vehicle prototypes for non-public road tests, which REE expects to be followed by initial firm orders, and public road testing. REE continues progress on homologation activities according to schedule at both the component and system level. Full vehicle level validation & homologation are currently scheduled to begin mid-year in collaboration with our partners. REE is also building its production capabilities to support serial production in 2023.

Progress on selected collaborations and other R&D projects is provided below.

P7 Modular Platform

Fully flat from end-to-end, the P7 platform offers REE’s greatest interior space and volumetric efficiency for class 3-5 vehicles. Supporting up to 8,800 lbs. in maximum payload, REE’s unique technology allows for up to 35% more cargo space for a given footprint than comparable commercial vehicles and is designed to significantly reduce development times of electric commercial models. The P7 is suited for applications across commercial trucks, school buses, walk-in-vans and recreational vehicles.

The Company announced in January 2022 that it started validation of the P7 platform and anticipates multiple body designs of full vehicle prototypes will be available for its pipeline customers to validate on private roads in the U.S. and Europe in mid-2022 with first orders expected towards the end of the year.

The company also expects to establish a global service network with Data-as-a-Service capabilities by the end of 2022. This global network, in collaboration with leading after sales & service partners, is expected to include technician training, maintenance & repair services including proprietary REEcorner swaps, parts distribution, and fleet management services.

We have ongoing P7 programs with various counterparties:

Leading Logistics Company

One P7 variant is based on functional and operational specifications from a leading logistics company. We expect full vehicle customer validation on private roads in the U.S. mid-2022.

J.B. Poindexter

REE signed a strategic collaboration with EAVX, an EV-focused business unit of JB Poindexter & Co. (the parent company of Morgan Olson, a leading producer of walk-in van bodies in North America), to develop commercial electric vehicles ‘Powered by REE’ for the North American market, based on REE’s P7 platform. In Q1, REE started delivering prototypes to EAVX for upfitting advanced top hats for private road validation mid-year.

Global Commercial Vehicle OEM

In mid-2021 REE signed a joint development agreement with a leading global commercial vehicle OEM to jointly develop a Class 4 electrified P7 platform for commercial trucks, school buses, walk-in-vans and recreational vehicles. During the joint development phase, REE and the global commercial vehicle OEM expect to enter into a supply agreement for REE to supply its REEcornerTM for a dedicated new EV chassis of the OEM in the U.S. and Canada.

Navya

REE has entered into a strategic collaboration agreement with Navya (EPA: NAVYA) which is currently active with autonomous vehicles in 23 countries, to collaborate in the development of a L4 autonomous system based on P7 corners ‘Powered by REE’ and driven by Navya.

Previously announced progress

In November 2021, REE nominated American Axle & Manufacturing to supply a high-performance 3-in-1 propulsion system and Brembo to co-develop and supply a braking system. REE intends to use Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Analytics-as-a-Service (AaaS) capabilities currently under development in collaboration with Hitachi America, Ltd. in the P7 platform to provide intelligence and actionable insights into fleet operations and offer fleet owners complete visibility over their operations, allowing faster time to market, lower total ownership costs and a suite of lifecycle service. Further details about the P7 platform can be found on REE’s website.

Other ongoing platform and program activity:

FlatFormer

In early January 2022, REE and Hino Motors (“Hino”), a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation and a global leader in heavy & medium duty trucks, jointly exhibited their concept model EV platform, the FlatFormer, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. FlatFormer leverages REE’s innovative REEcorner™ technology, which allows the critical drive components to reside between the wheel and the chassis, thus creating a fully flat chassis. The FlatFormer will be capable of carrying a customized Mobility Service Module that can transport passengers and goods and deliver services. The Mobility Service Module can be easily detached from the EV platform and once detached, can serve as an independent, stand-alone unit, leaving the platform to be operated separately and continue on its next mission.

REE and Hino anticipate that FlatFormer prototypes will be produced in 2022.

Leopard

In November 2021, REE unveiled its autonomous concept vehicle based on the Company’s modular EV platform design based on interest from potential customers. The full-scale concept is geared for customers seeking to offer fully autonomous delivery solutions, including, delivery fleet operators, e-retailers and technology companies. REE’s technology will be seamlessly integrated with any top hat and autonomous hardware. Leopard is designed to carry significantly more cargo due to its low, flat floor.

Magna International

In April 2021, REE secured a strategic collaboration agreement with Magna International, the world’s largest vehicle contract manufacturer, with the goal of bringing to market innovative, full-fledged modular EVs under the ‘Powered by REE’ brand for tech companies and new electric mobility players. The companies are jointly exploring future vehicle development opportunities across a variety of use cases, including Mobility-as-a-Service in the light commercial vehicle market.

Hitachi America, Ltd

In December 2021, REE announced a newly-formed strategic collaboration with Hitachi America, Ltd. (“Hitachi”), a subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., to ease and accelerate the adoption of EVs across the entire EV value chain, including enabling EV manufacturing at scale, delivering commercial vehicle charging infrastructure and energy management, and providing comprehensive digital fleet management and operations for full visibility across EV fleets as organizations transition over the next decade. Hitachi and REE will work to accelerate the development of advanced digital solutions for REE customers by co-creating a highly scalable DaaS and AaaS platform with the goal of enabling next-generation connected commercial EVs. This could also provide an additional revenue stream for REE in the future.

Supply Chain Developments:

In November 2021, REE nominated American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings Inc. (“AAM”), a leading global automotive supplier of driveline technologies, to supply a jointly developed compact, high-performance 3-in-1 electric drive unit (“EDU”) which includes motor, inverter, and gear box for the REEcorner™ module, with initial application in the P7 delivery van program. In January, REE and AAM displayed an EDU system and jointly hosted an event at CES to discuss how their collaboration is well positioned to take advantage of the fast-growing electrification market. Materials presented during the event can be access here.

In addition, REE nominated Brembo, a global leader in brake technology, to jointly develop and supply a braking system for REEcorners™ and EV platforms with initial focus on the P7 delivery van program.

Operational Developments

In February 2021, REE established its Engineering Center of Excellence in the UK to commercialize REE’s products and manufacturing capabilities with state-of-the-art testing and engineering equipment. The Engineering Center is spearheading REEcorner™ and EV platform engineering design, validation, verification and testing, as well as product homologation. In August 2021, REE announced that its REEcorner™ technology was awarded $17 million of funding from the UK government.

REE is building its first Integration Center and highly automated launch factory in Coventry, UK in 2022, and plans to open an asset-light Integration Center in Austin, TX in 2023. The Company anticipates that it will have an initial capacity to produce 10,000 vehicle sets by the end of 2022, ramping up to 20,000 vehicle sets by the end of 2023. REE’s CapEx-light, asset-light production approach is based on leveraging its global network of Tier 1 partners’ manufacturing capacity, with full point-of-sale component assembly and testing set to take place in REE’s Integration Centers. REE’s CapEx-light manufacturing approach and Integration Centers are designed to enable the company to remain a comparatively asset-light enterprise, helping to increase operating margins and ROI and reduce the carbon footprint of its operations.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has disclosed financial measurements in this press release that present financial information considered to be non-GAAP financial measures. These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although the Company’s management uses these measurements as an aid in monitoring the Company’s on-going financial performance. Non-GAAP research and development, non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses and non-GAAP operating expenses exclude the impact of stock-based compensation. Non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP loss per share also exclude non-recurring or unusual items that are considered by management to be outside the Company’s standard operations and certain non-cash items. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measurement that is considered by management to be useful in comparing the profitability among companies by reflecting operating results of the Company excluding such items.

There are limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures, including that such measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies due to potential differences among calculation methodologies. Thus, there can be no assurance whether (i) items excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures will occur in the future or (ii) there will be cash costs associated with items excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures. The Company compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by providing the reconciliations for the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors should consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

These statements include, among other things, the Company’s statements about the Company’s strategic and business plans, relationships or outlook, the impact of trends on and interest in its business, intellectual property or product and its future results. These forward-looking statements are based on REE’s expectations and beliefs concerning future events and involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. These factors are difficult to predict accurately and may be beyond REE’s control. Forward-looking statements in this communication or elsewhere speak only as of the date made and REE undertakes no obligation to update its forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws. In light of these risks and uncertainties, investors should keep in mind that results, events or developments discussed in any forward-looking statement made in this communication may not occur. Uncertainties and risk factors that could affect REE’s future performance and cause results to differ from the forward-looking statements in this release include, but are not limited to: REE’s ability to commercialize its strategic plan; REE’s ability to maintain and advance relationships with current Tier 1 suppliers and strategic partners; development of REE’s advanced prototypes into marketable products; REE’s ability to grow and scale manufacturing capacity through relationships with Tier 1 suppliers; REE’s estimates of unit sales, expenses and profitability and underlying assumptions; REE’s reliance on its UK Engineering Center of Excellence for the design, validation, verification, testing and homologation of its products; REE’s limited operating history; risks associated with REE’s commercial production in 2023 and thereafter; REE’s dependence on potential suppliers, some of which will be single or limited source; development of the market for commercial EVs; intense competition in the e-mobility space, including with competitors who have significantly more resources; risks related to the fact that the Company is incorporated in Israel and governed by Israeli law; REE’s ability to make continued investments in its platform; the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and any other worldwide health epidemics or outbreaks that may arise; the need to attract, train and retain highly-skilled technical workforce; changes in laws and regulations that impact REE; REE’s ability to enforce, protect and maintain intellectual property rights; REE’s ability to retain engineers and other highly qualified employees to further its goals; and other risks and uncertainties set forth in the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in REE’s final prospectus relating to its business combination filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 1, 2021 and in subsequent filings with the SEC. While the list of factors discussed above and the list of factors presented in the final prospectus are considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements.
