Ondas Holdings Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

NANTUCKET, Mass.–()–Ondas Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: ONDS), a leading provider of private wireless data and drone solutions through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Ondas Networks Inc. (“Ondas Networks”) and American Robotics, Inc. (“American Robotics” or “AR”), today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter of 2021. Management is hosting an earnings conference call and audio webcast to discuss results today, August 16, 2021, at 8:30 a.m. ET.

During the second quarter of 2021, Ondas Holdings continued to make significant business development progress at its subsidiary, Ondas Networks, which included the evolution of multiple network opportunities with the Class I rails and its strategic relationships with Siemens and AURA. Ondas Holdings also announced in May it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire American Robotics, a leading developer of highly automated commercial drone systems, thereby creating a leading MC-IoT data and drone solutions platform company servicing commercial and government markets. The acquisition of American Robotics closed on August 5th. In addition, the Company completed a $51.5 million equity raise in June providing significant growth capital to support its business expansion plans.

“During the second quarter, Ondas continued to position itself for success in the MC-IoT markets we are targeting,” said Eric Brock, Ondas’ Chairman and CEO. “We continued to advance our business activity with the Rails, Siemens and AURA bringing those projects closer to completion and volume production. We announced and have now completed the strategic acquisition of American Robotics, opening a brand new, substantial worldwide TAM. And we strengthened our balance sheet by raising $51.5 million in a public equity offering and extinguishing 95% of our debt.”

Recent Highlights

  • Entered into a definitive agreement to acquire American Robotics, a leading developer of highly automated commercial drone systems and the first company approved by the FAA to operate its drones beyond-visual-line-of-sight (“BVLOS”) without a human operator on-site. The acquisition was completed on August 5th with overwhelming support from our shareholders with approximately 99.7 percent of the votes cast supporting the acquisition.
  • Strengthened our balance sheet by raising $51.5 million through a public equity offering and retiring 95% of the Company’s debt.
  • Revenues increased by 51% for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2020.
  • Advanced multiple joint product development programs along with Siemens Mobility in preparation for volume production with the rails both domestically and internationally.
  • Substantially completed the next phase of the joint-development program with AURA, a privately held company deploying a nationwide network for the command and control of commercial drones.

Second Quarter and First Half 2021 Financial Highlights

Revenues decreased by 25% to approximately $0.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to approximately $1.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020. The decrease in revenue was primarily a result of lower product sales which were offset by the increase in development revenue in the three months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020, during which the Company fulfilled a large network product order. Gross profit decreased by 50% to $307,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to $615,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as a result of lower revenue and higher cost of goods sold related to development agreements. Gross profit on a percentage basis was approximately 35% for the three months ended June 30, 2021, compared to 53% for the three months ended June 30, 2020. The lower gross profit percentage was driven by the change in mix between development revenue at a lower margin then product revenues.

Operating expenses were relatively flat at $3.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to three months ended June 30, 2020. Stock based compensation decreased by approximately $0.8 million in the three months ended June 30, 2021, which was offset by a total increase of approximately $0.8 million for professional fees related to American Robotics acquisition and facilities related expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

The Company realized an operating loss of approximately $3.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to $2.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020. The difference was driven primarily by lower revenues and lower gross profit during the period. Net loss was approximately $2.8 million for the three months ended June 2021, as compared to a net loss of $3.2 million in the three months ended June 30, 2020. Net loss was lower primarily due to loan forgiveness of approximately $0.7 million and a decrease in interest expense of approximately $0.1 million as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2020.

Revenues grew by 50% to approximately $2.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to approximately $1.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Revenue growth was primarily due to larger development projects with Siemens and AURA during the first half of 2021. Gross profit increased by 45% to $0.9 million as a result of higher revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to $0.6 for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Gross profit on a percentage basis, was approximately the same at 45% for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to 47% for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

Operating expenses increased approximately 21% to $6.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to $5.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020. This increase was driven primarily by professional fees associated with the acquisition of American Robotics.

The Company realized an operating loss of approximately $6.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared to a similar loss for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Increased operating expenses from the American Robotics acquisition was the primary driver despite the growth in revenues and gross profits. Net loss was approximately $6.0 million for the six months ended June 2021 with a similar net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

The Company held cash and cash equivalents of approximately $58.5 million as of June 30, 2021, as compared to approximately $26.1 million as of December 31, 2020.

Outlook

Ongoing investments in market expansion and deeper penetration of select verticals are expected to continue supporting customer activity as Ondas advances its long-term strategy to drive commercial penetration of its proprietary technology across multiple markets. The Company continues to work closely with Class 1 Rails and its strategic rail partner Siemens to advance the adoption of Ondas’ FullMAX platform in the 900 MHz network, greenfield spectrum. We expect to receive a purchase order from the Class 1 Rails related to the MC-IoT Rail lab in the fourth quarter of 2021, an important step on the roadmap to commercial adoption. We also expect to receive additional joint-product development projects with Siemens with increased activity related to international markets.

Our commercialization efforts with AURA continue to progress. We expect to complete the current project focused on optimizing our FullMAX network equipment for testing and demonstration network purposes in the third quarter of 2021. In addition to the ongoing network development work, we expect initial equipment orders from AURA for testing and network expansion during the second half of 2021.

We expect American Robotics to expand commercial deployments of the Scout System™ and have begun to build inventory for customer demand. Scout™ deployments will focus on a select group of blue-chip customers in the mining, agriculture, oil & gas and utilities sectors over the second half. In parallel, American Robotics will invest in field service operations to create capacity to handle expanded drone fleet deployments with existing customers and to support new customer activity as the year progresses.

For Ondas Networks, we expect bookings and revenue growth to fluctuate from quarter-to-quarter given the timing of development activity in front of the targeted commercial rollout for the Rail 900 MHz network, the multiple development projects underway with Siemens and project related bookings related to AURA’s network development. Furthermore, American Robotics recently commenced the process of scaling its support organization for its customer engagements. As such, we will not provide financial guidance for the third quarter of 2021.
