Hyliion Holdings Reports Second-Quarter 2022 Financial Results

08/09/2022

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hyliion Holdings Corp. (NYSE: HYLN) (“Hyliion”), a leader in electrified powertrain solutions for Class 8 semi-trucks, today reported its second-quarter 2022 financial results.

Key Business Highlights

  • Increased order backlog to 200 Hypertruck ERX™ production slots, plus nearly 2,000 units in reservations to date
  • Reached new milestone in Hypertruck ERX development with start of on-road testing of design verification vehicles
  • Completed first freight delivery with Hypertruck ERX in partnership with GreenPath Logistics for one of the nation’s largest retailers
  • Generated $0.2 million in revenue from Hybrid sales with approximately $1.5 million in backlog
  • Confirmed Hypertruck ERX would qualify for tax incentive of 30%, up to $40,000, as part of the newly proposed Inflation Reduction Act
  • Closed quarter with over $500 million on balance sheet
  • Company reiterates full-year 2022 revenue expectations of between $2.0 million and $3.0 million; lowers range for full-year operating expenses to between $130 million and $140 million

Executive Commentary

“The transportation and energy markets are changing rapidly, and despite persistent macroeconomic headwinds, Hyliion remains poised to revolutionize the market for Class 8 semi-trucks,” said Thomas Healy, Hyliion’s founder and chief executive officer. “We are turning industry interest in our technology into orders and are highly encouraged by the potential for further adoption of our technology. Moreover, we remain on schedule with our development and design verification timeline, including on-road testing. Importantly, we recently achieved a significant milestone in our Hypertruck ERX development by completing our first delivery of freight for one of the nation’s largest retailers. This was in partnership with GreenPath Logistics, a Hypertruck ERX Innovation Council member and customer of both our Hybrid and Hypertruck ERX powertrain solutions.”

“In the second quarter, as previously announced, we formalized what has been a successful and productive partnership with Cummins to optimize the Cummins natural gas engine as the generator for the Hypertruck ERX powertrain. Working together, we will pursue key environmental certifications for the natural gas engine that serves as a range-extender by providing onboard power generation to recharge the Hypertruck ERX’s batteries.”

The Hypertruck ERX offers 75 miles of electric range, which qualifies for credits under the California Air Resources Board’s anticipated zero-emission vehicle mandates and can achieve up to 1,000 miles of full range through the generator, eliminating the range anxiety associated with competing solutions.

Hypertruck ERX Orders and Reservations Update

The Company secured additional orders for Hypertruck ERX production slots from multiple fleets, bringing the total number of orders to 200. The Company has also received reservations totaling nearly 2,000 units to date. These orders and reservations remain subject to the finalization of commercial terms.

As previously announced, both NFI Industries and Holcim each placed 10-unit orders for Hypertruck ERX production slots. In addition to being a founding member of Hyliion’s Hypertruck Innovation Council, NFI is a fully integrated North American supply-chain solutions provider with a 90-year history and a fleet of more than 4,500 trucks. The order followed a recent Ride and Drive event at Hyliion’s Austin headquarters to evaluate the potential role of the Hypertruck ERX in support of NFI’s goal of zero-emissions goods movement. Holcim, a global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions, will seek to replace existing diesel-fueled trucks in its Texas and Oklahoma operations.

Last month, Hyliion secured orders for an additional 10 units of the Hypertruck ERX from Ruan, a Hypertruck Innovation Council member. With nearly 4,000 trucks and 300 operating locations nationwide, Ruan is one of the top 10 privately-owned transportation and logistics companies in the country.

Hypertruck ERX Development

In the second quarter, the Company continued the design-verification phase of its Hypertruck ERX development with the start of on-road testing. Hyliion remains on schedule to complete design verification, including initial controlled fleet trials and the start of winter testing, by the end of this year. This marks the third consecutive quarter that the Company has met the commercialization goals laid out on its fourth quarter 2021 earnings call. Hyliion’s multi-phase development program includes the accumulation of up to one million test miles. Concurrently, the Company is pursuing final regulatory approvals with a goal of starting formal production late next year. Hyliion continues to work closely with its suppliers to secure delivery of components necessary to reach its development and commercial milestones.

Hypertruck ERX Government Credits

The recently proposed federal Inflation Reduction Act includes a provision for a 30% tax credit, up to $40,000 for technologies that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Under the current draft, the Hypertruck ERX would qualify for the tax credit. Such a reduction in up-front costs would lower barriers to entry to electrification for current diesel users and allow for an easier transition to cleaner technology. The Company will continue to work with elected officials in support of the bill becoming law.

Hybrid Update

In the second quarter, Hyliion continued to install and deliver its Hybrid powertrain systems. Due to persistent shortages and extended lead times for commercial trucks, the Company continues to experience delays in customer truck availability, which has affected installation and delivery timing. The Company currently has a backlog for the Hybrid system of approximately $1.5 million. In the balance of 2022, the Company will continue to upfit customer trucks with Hybrid product. Hyliion is also exploring the sale of full trucks with installed Hybrid systems to customers as an additional path to market.

Financial Highlights and Operating Expense Guidance

In the second quarter, the Company recorded $0.2 million in revenue. The Company’s second-quarter operating expenses totaled $32.2 million, driven primarily by R&D. Hyliion ended the quarter with over $500 million of capital available on its balance sheet, which is sufficient to fund its current commercialization plans for the Hybrid and Hypertruck ERX powertrains. This includes cash and cash equivalents of $199.9 million, short-term investments of $188.9 million, and long-term investments of $111.3 million.

For the full-year 2022, Hyliion expects revenue in the range of $2 million to $3 million from Hybrid sales and the potential sale of full trucks with Hybrid systems. The Company lowered its operating expense guidance to the range of $130 million to $140 million, driven primarily by timing of research and development costs to support commercialization of the Hypertruck ERX with no expected impact to the commercialization milestones we have laid out.

Upcoming Events

Hyliion will be hosting a virtual ride and drive event for the investment community on September 13th that will be broadcast from its headquarters in Austin, TX.

The Company recently launched an educational video series on its investor relations website and further updates will be published in the coming weeks.

Second Quarter 2022 Conference Call

Hyliion will host a conference call and accompanying webcast at 11:00 a.m. EST / 10:00 a.m. CST on Wednesday, August 10 to discuss its financials, 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.
