Third Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

Revenues decreased by 54% to approximately $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to approximately $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The decrease in revenue was primarily a result of lower product sales and less development revenue in the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020. Gross profit decreased by 95% to approximately $14,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $248,000 for the three months ended September 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 5% for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to 40% for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The lower gross profit percentage was driven by lower amounts of product revenue with higher gross margin and higher cost of goods in development revenue.

Operating expenses increased by $1.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to an increase of approximately $664,000 in professional fees related to the American Robotics acquisition, an increase of approximately $629,000 in depreciation and amortization expense due to amortization of American Robotics intangible assets, and an increase of approximately $463,000 in R&D development expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

The Company realized an operating loss of approximately $4.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $2.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Operating loss increased primarily as a result of an increase in operating expenses of approximately $1.9 million primarily associated with the American Robotics acquisition and a decrease in gross profit of approximately $235,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021. Net loss was approximately $4.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to a net loss of $3.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

First Nine Months 2021 Financial Highlights

Revenues increased by 19% to approximately $2.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to approximately $2.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in revenue was primarily due to larger amounts of development revenue from Siemens Mobility and AURA during the first nine months of 2021 offset by lower amounts of product revenue.

Gross profit increased by 5% to $0.9 million as a result of higher revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $0.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Gross profit on a percentage basis, was approximately 40% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to 45% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Operating expenses increased approximately 36% to $11.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $8.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to an increase of approximately $1.5 million in professional fees related to the American Robotics acquisition, an increase of approximately $644,000 in depreciation and amortization expense due to amortization of American Robotics intangible assets, and an increase of approximately $743,000 in development expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

The Company realized an operating loss of approximately $10.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to a loss of approximately $7.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Operating loss increased primarily as a result of an increase of approximately $1.5 million in professional fees due to the American Robotics acquisition, increase of approximately $644,000 in depreciation and amortization expense due to amortization of American Robotics intangible assets, and an increase of approximately $743,000 in development expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Net loss was approximately $10.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to a net loss of $9.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

The Company held cash and cash equivalents of approximately $47.5 million as of September 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. During the fourth quarter and continuing in 2022, Ondas Networks intends to build inventory and increase internal human resources to meet an expected increase in product demand for both North American Rail and in International markets.

Also, we expect American Robotics to install additional Scout Systems™ for franchise customers in the fourth quarter and continue 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 in the coming quarters. In parallel, American Robotics will continue to invest and scale its field service operations to create capacity to handle expanded drone fleet deployments with existing customers and to support new customer activity

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 Mobility and the integration and scaling of American Robotics business.
