Hyzon Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ: HYZN) ("Hyzon" or the "Company"), a leading global supplier of zero-emission fuel cell electric heavy vehicles, today announced third quarter 2021 financial and operational results.

"During the third quarter we continued to execute on our long-term strategy and build momentum across our entire platform," said Mr. Craig Knight, Chief Executive Officer of Hyzon. "The Hyzon strategy remains unchanged: we are squarely focused on being at the forefront of the rapidly expanding hydrogen mobility industry. This means delivering our vehicles to customers across the globe, while simultaneously expanding access to cost efficient, green hydrogen for our customers.  We have laid out our path to optimize our performance through ongoing R&D, strategic investment and partnerships in the highest value segments across Vehicle, Fuel and Service.  Continued execution of that path is expected to allow us to expand margin across all segments of the value chain over time while, in parallel, we expand our high caliber team and place our commercial vehicles with leading global customers today.  "This strategy helped Hyzon continue our sequential improvement in both financial and operational results," Mr. Knight continued.  "During the third quarter of 2021, the Company generated revenue of $1 million and continues to mobilize its teams across Europe, Asia and North America to capture the increasing momentum for hydrogen in the commercial vehicle market.  As this momentum continues – Hyzon trucks are expected to be on the road in four continents by the end of the year, with two vehicles delivered during the third quarter 2021.  With the well-reported supply chain disruptions around the world, no industry is immune, and we have experienced operational challenges, delaying our backlog conversion.  However, our global footprint has allowed us to leverage our strategic partnerships and to meet customer demands for zero emission heavy commercial vehicles despite these challenges.

"In addition, the Company is well positioned, from a liquidity standpoint, to execute our plan, with $498.0 million in cash on the balance sheet as of the quarter end, and we are committed to maintaining substantial capital allocation to research, development, and technology investments. This commitment is further evidenced by newly filed patent applications to advance our core technologies, which is expected to achieve significant future cost savings in assembling zero emission vehicles, and further expand our competitive advantages.  I am extremely proud of our team's dedication and execution towards 'Zero Emissions with Zero Compromise' as we deliver real solutions today. All of our efforts have enabled our customers to validate our longstanding thesis – that hydrogen is the ideal fuel for use in heavy duty, high-utilization commercial applications," Mr. Knight concluded.

Expansion of Hydrogen Supply and Hub Strategy

"The rapidly growing interest in, and commitment to, hydrogen adoption in the commercial mobility segment has provided tailwinds for our efforts to expand the hydrogen supply network and decarbonize the commercial vehicle industry alongside our strategic partners," said Parker Meeks, Chief Strategy Officer.  "Hyzon is not only committed to providing zero-emission mobility solutions to the commercial market but also is actively engaged in building and fostering a clean hydrogen supply ecosystem with leading partners from feedstocks through production, dispensing and financing.  This is further underpinned by our recent announcement with TC Energy to collaborate on development, construction, operation, and ownership of hydrogen production facilities across North America. The collaboration has the goal of hydrogen delivery to fuel cell heavy duty vehicles as soon as 2022, producing up to 20 tonnes of hydrogen per day at each hub.

"Previous announcements of Hyzon's partnerships with TotalEnergies, ReCarbon and Raven SR, and other leading partners, also supports buildout of the complete hydrogen production and refueling ecosystem in each major region of our operations, ideally complementing our back-to-base model and near-term fleet deployments.  We are excited about our future-focused customers driving forward with their decarbonization plans, and we see the ability to deliver and scale below-diesel-parity clean hydrogen close to fleet operations in the very near term as clearly differentiating Hyzon in terms of cost, carbon intensity, and speed to market," concluded Mr. Meeks.

Third  Quarter 2021 Financial and Operational Results

For the third quarter ending September 30, 2021, the Company reported total operating expenses of $50.6 million and net income attributable to Hyzon of $32.4 million, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $0.13.

Third quarter operating expenses were comprised of $4.8 million in research and development and $44.8 million in selling, general and administrative expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses were primarily made up of $26.7 million in stock-based compensation, $13.4 million of which was triggered by a key executive retirement arrangement, with an additional $13.1 million related to earnout equity awards pursuant to the Business Combination. Also included were salary and related expenses of $3.3 million, and approximately $11.0 million in expenses related to buildout of the Company's corporate infrastructure, along with legal and accounting costs associated with the Business Combination. For the prior year third quarter ending September 30, 2020, the Company reported a net loss of $0.6 million, resulting in earnings per share of nil.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company reported total operating expenses of $63.6 million and net income attributable to Hyzon of $14.8 million resulting in diluted earnings per share of $0.07.

The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $(15.2) million and $(27.1) million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement its condensed consolidated balance sheet and statement of operations and comprehensive loss, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Hyzon Motors Inc. reports EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA which are non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA is determined by taking net income and adding interest, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is determined by taking EBITDA and adding non-cash stock-based compensation expense, change in fair value of private placement warrant liability, change in fair value of earnout liability and other special items determined by management. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, viewed in addition to and not in lieu of our reported GAAP results, provides useful information to investors by providing a more focused measure of operating results, enhances the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. The non-GAAP measures presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA has been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure in the tables within this press release.
