“We are delighted to announce that the 5,000 limited edition Fisker Ocean One pre-order units are completely sold out, thanks to pioneering customers in all nine launch markets: Austria, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States,” Henrik Fisker, Chairman and CEO of Fisker Inc. stated. “This is a historic moment, where thousands of customers committed $5,000 for a vehicle many have only seen in pictures, demonstrating our customers’ excitement for the Fisker Ocean vehicle and the value proposition of our brand and product. It’s clear Fisker’s approach to price positioning and design, plus our unwavering commitment to sustainability, is the right one for the future!”

Henrik added, “We look forward to taking our 5,000 Fisker Ocean One stakeholders on a once-in-a-lifetime journey with us as we approach the start of production on November 17, 2022. These 5,000 pre-orders for the Fisker Ocean One represent approximately $350 million of potential revenue for Fisker once all vehicles are delivered.”

The Manhattan Beach headquarters recently took delivery of a prototype of the Fisker Ocean, allowing employees to see the vehicle up close and for Henrik to drive on some familiar local LA roads. On August 2nd, we received a second test car.

“I am proud of the seamless collaboration between Fisker and all of our partners and suppliers, ensuring our November 17, 2022, start-of-production,” Henrik continued. “After driving test cars on the high-speed track in Italy and on the roads in LA, I am excited about all the features we will offer in the Fisker Ocean and how superbly the Fisker Ocean will drive. The prototype quality still needs improvement before we hit serial production, as several parts are early released prototype parts, but it gives us the time to do even more refinement. I want the Fisker Ocean to be a top-quality product when it reaches our first paying customers, which means diligent fine-tuning until the first production SUVs run off the line on November 17. With strong demand for our vehicles, we look forward to the next phase of our exciting growth plan.”

Second Quarter 2022 Business Highlights:

  • Rapid progress on Fisker Ocean testing and validation across multiple workstreams. Fifty-five complete Fisker Ocean prototypes have been built in Magna’s production facility and Magna continues to build additional prototype vehicles. Ongoing extensive testing includes crash, safety, powertrain, high and low-speed features, and much more. For example, several prototypes made their way to Magna Electronics in Michigan for ADAS testing. Fisker and Magna’s joint test program aims to deliver high-quality vehicles right from the start of production (SOP) on November 17, 2022.
  • Fisker Ocean made its French debut at the Rencontres Flotauto 2022 and its United Kingdom debut at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed in June 2022. Fisker expects deliveries in France to begin in April 2023 and to have right-hand drive Fisker Oceans available in mid-2023 for the UK market.
  • Fisker partner Foxconn completed its acquisition of an operational 6.2 million-square-foot vehicle manufacturing facility in Ohio. Fisker and Foxconn will build Fisker’s second vehicle, the Fisker PEAR, using the Fisker-developed SLV1 platform, at this factory. The Fisker PEAR will start production in 2024 with an expected base price below $30,000. Fisker and Foxconn intend to build a minimum of 250,000 PEAR vehicles per year once the plant ramps up production. The PEAR is in full product development and many unique, world’s-first features will be on the production vehicle. The PEAR will sit on a new Fisker platform with a radical new electrical architecture, incorporating new advanced ADAS technology. Several supplier nominations have started, and a drivable prototype is expected to be ready at the end of this year. The PEAR program verifies Fisker’s rapid development process, which reduces cost and enables delivering the latest technology to market.
  • Project Ronin will be Fisker’s third vehicle, following the Fisker Ocean and Fisker PEAR. Developed at Fisker Magic Works in the UK, the all-electric sport Grand Tourer will feature innovations such as a battery pack integrated with the vehicle’s structure to increase the battery volume, providing ample range suitable for stylish long-distance driving. Fisker is designing and engineering Project Ronin to deliver class-leading range and redefining the luxury sports car segment. The sculptural design and extreme proportions of the vehicle will make it stand out from any other car on the road. Fisker expects to show Project Ronin in the Summer of 2023.
  • The more than $850 million of cash and cash equivalents at quarter-end reflects Fisker’s prudent liquidity management and is sufficient to fund the production launch of the Fisker Ocean in November 2022 and for additional vehicle development throughout 2022.

Recent Updates:

  • Affirming the expected timing plan for Fisker Ocean start of production on November 17, 2022.
  • 5,000 pre-orders are fully sold out for the launch edition Fisker Ocean One, secured by $5,000 down payments. The Fisker Ocean One will be fully loaded with all the features of the Fisker Ocean Extreme plus signature qualities to stand out even further. Throughout 2023, Fisker will prioritize and manufacture all Fisker Ocean One and Extreme orders, with additional capacity then allocated to Fisker Ocean Ultra and Sport trims.
  • Fisker Ocean reservations totaled over 56,000 as of August 1, 2022 (net of cancellations), including 5,000 Fisker Ocean One pre-orders. This compares to 45,000 as of our Q1 2022 earnings call and 31,000 as of our Q4 2021 earnings call.
  • As Fisker Ocean enters pre-production, we have intensified our rapid product development plan. Fisker added Alpay Uguz as Senior Vice President of Global Manufacturing who, in collaboration with senior management, will oversee strategy towards the goal of producing one million vehicles per year by 2027.
  • Our interactive configurator is currently in development and will launch in late October with our new website. The new website will also provide information regarding anticipated delivery timeframes.
  • Starting on November 18th, the day after our official start of production, we will begin taking pre-orders for the Fisker Ocean Extreme trim. This will be followed by opening pre-orders for our Ultra and Sport trims in Q1 2023. This phased approach will smooth our production forecasting.
  • Fisker established Fisker Finance℠, a digital financing platform offering seamless and convenient loan purchase options to Fisker customers. Retail loan options include vehicle, accessories, and home charging equipment financing. Fisker also reaffirmed the nomination of Chase in the US and Santander Consumer Finance in Europe as retail financing partners.
  • Fisker continues to expand its pipeline of customer product locations. In addition to Fisker Lounges, previously referred to as Experience Centers, in Los Angeles and Munich slated to open later this year, we expect to have over 50 Fisker Lounge showrooms and Center+ service facilities across North America and Europe by the end of 2023.
  • Recruitment continues at a strong pace. Fisker currently has a global team of 530 as of August 1, 2022, with hiring in India, US, and Europe to further grow our internal technical capabilities and launch-driven activities.
  • Fisker PEAR development is progressing well. We continue transitioning engineering and purchasing teams to PEAR, with Fisker PEAR reservations over 4,000.

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights:

  • Cash and cash equivalents of $851.9 million as of June 30, 2022, which reflects approximately $14.2 million raised from Fisker’s $350 million at-the-market (ATM) equity program during the second quarter of 2022.
  • Loss from operations totaled $88.7 million, including $1.2 million of stock-based compensation expense.
  • Net loss totaled $106 million and $0.36 loss per share.
  • Net cash used in operating activities totaled $149.5 million and cash paid for capital expenditures totaled $54.2 million.
  • Weighted average shares outstanding totaled 298.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

2022 Business Outlook

The following information reflects Fisker’s expectations for key non-GAAP operating expenses and capital expenditures for the full-year ending December 31, 2022. Fisker is projecting the total of these items to be within a range of $715 million to $790 million, consistent with our prior expectations last provided in the Q1 2022 Earnings Release.

1Excludes stock-based compensation expense. A reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP amount is not provided as the quantification of stock-based compensation excluded from the non-GAAP measure, which may be significant, cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted without unreasonable efforts. The Non-GAAP adjustment for stock-based compensation expense requires additional inputs such as number of shares granted and market price volatilities that are not currently ascertainable.

Conference Call Information

Fisker Inc. will host a conference call to discuss the results at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time (5:00 p.m. Eastern Time) today, August 3, 2022. The live audio webcast, along with supplemental information, will be accessible on Fisker’s Investor Relations website at https://investors.fiskerinc.com. A recording of the webcast will also be available following the conference call.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

This press release and the accompanying tables references certain non-generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) financial measures, including non-GAAP adjusted loss from operations, non-GAAP selling, general, and administrative expense, non-GAAP research and development expense and non-GAAP total operating expenses. These non-GAAP financial measures differ from their directly comparable GAAP financial measures due to adjustments made to exclude stock-based compensation expense. None of these non-GAAP financial measures is a substitute for or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

Fisker believes that presenting these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information to investors about Fisker in understanding and evaluating its operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics used by its management in financial and operational-decision making. However, there are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP measures and their nearest GAAP equivalents. For example, other companies may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, or may use other measures to calculate their financial performance, and therefore any non-GAAP measures Fisker uses may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Therefore, both GAAP financial measures of Fisker’s financial performance and the respective non-GAAP measures should be considered together. Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure in the tables below.
