Executive Commentary

“We were excited to host Hyliion’s first ever in-person Investor Day where the Hyliion team was able to meet with investors, customers and other stakeholders to demonstrate Hyliion’s powertrain and KARNO generator technology,” said Hyliion’s Founder and CEO, Thomas Healy. “We also used the opportunity to announce exciting new developments, including the beginning of development for a new day cab variant of the Hypertruck ERX powertrain system along with plans for KARNO generator stationary applications that we expect to have in place in 2024.”

Hypertruck ERX System Development

Hyliion began installing the Hypertruck ERX powertrain system into the first production Founders truck unit during the company’s first in-person Investor Day on June 27th in anticipation of delivering 30 semi-trucks outfitted with Hypertruck ERX systems to customers by the end of the year.

The company also announced that the beginning of extended fleet trials with customers was delayed from the second quarter due to difficulties in obtaining components for building verification vehicles but is expected to begin by the end of August with no significant impact to the commercialization timeline.

During its Investor Day, Hyliion also announced that the next version of the Hypertruck ERX platform will be a day cab model. Hyliion has received strong customer interest for a day cab variant due to the limited range fleets have experienced with plug-in electric trucks and due to the recent California Air Resources Board approval of the Advanced Clean Fleets Regulation (ACF), which has early mandates on fleet purchases of day cab trucks.

KARNO Update

Development and testing of Hyliion’s KARNO generator continues. Hyliion showcased a Hypertruck KARNO prototype vehicle at Investor Day, which it expects to be available for customer Ride and Drive events in the coming months. The truck is capable of being fueled by either natural gas or hydrogen and is expected to achieve new levels of efficiency as well as low emissions, maintenance cost, noise and vibration.

The company also showcased a representative scale model of a 200 kW KARNO stationary generator that is currently in development to give stakeholders an idea of the size of the system. Milestones for stationary KARNO generator development were laid out, including a plan to have operational KARNO stationary demo units deployed in 2024. The company also announced that it expects to generate revenue relating to KARNO stationary units beginning in 2024.

"We are seeing increasing interest in the KARNO generator for stationary power applications that is exceeding our expectations, in addition to the Hypertruck KARNO. We expect the KARNO generator to expand Hyliion’s product offerings in providing electrified solutions to the commercial vehicle space as we can solve the power needs of EV chargers,” stated Healy.

Hyzon Collaboration

Hyliion and Hyzon Motors remain on track to develop a fuel-cell-powered vehicle using Hyliion’s electric powertrain system and Hyzon’s hydrogen fuel cell technology as the generator. During the second quarter, the fuel cell and hydrogen storage were integrated along with software updates. The truck and fuel cell have been fully commissioned, and the development unit is now driving on fuel-cell power. The project remains on track for completion by the end of this year.

Financial Highlights, Operating Expense and 2023 Guidance

In the second quarter, the company recorded $266 thousand in revenue related to Hybrid system sales. The company’s second quarter operating expenses totaled $38.5 million, $6.3 million higher than a year ago, mainly due to higher research and development spending. Hyliion ended the second quarter with $354 million of cash, short-term and long-term investments, and currently has no plans to raise additional capital in 2023.

Forward guidance includes total 2023 operating expense of approximately $130 million and total cash consumed in operating losses, capital spending and working capital of approximately $150 million. Revenue from Hybrid sales and from the expected sale of trucks with Hypertruck ERX powertrain systems is expected to be approximately $10 million.

"As Hyliion nears the commercial launch of the Hypertruck ERX, we face similar challenges as our peers in the path to electrify the commercial vehicle space. Component cost, market shifts and a changing regulatory landscape will affect adoption rates. However, Hyliion has a favorable cash position and management will continue to assess our business model and strategic priorities to ensure we are using our capital most effectively,” stated Healy.

Second Quarter 2023 Conference Call

Hyliion will host a conference call and accompanying webcast at 11:00 a.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. CT on Wednesday, August 9 to discuss its financial and business results, and outlook. The live webcast of the call, as well as an archived replay following, will be available online on the Investor Relations section of Hyliion’s website.
