“I am pleased to report that in the second quarter we continued the momentum that has propelled our growth and development as a company in 2019,” said Desmond Wheatley, Envision Solar's CEO. “Revenues in the second quarter increased 94% year over year as our production facility has ramped up to build and deliver product. Due to our aggressive sales and marketing activities, we have experienced an influx of new orders in recent months, primarily from government agencies across the U.S., and our backlog scheduled for shipment in 2019 continues to be robust at $2.5 million as of June 30, 2019. I am confident in our ability to continue to fine tune our sales process and convert pipeline into sales as a result of the increasing need for our product in the market. In addition, we are making progress on our manufacturing process to increase the velocity of delivering high-quality products to our customers and enhancing our gross margin.”
Fiscal Second Quarter 2019 Financial Summary
Revenues. For the three months ended June 30, 2019, our revenues were $1,640,350, compared to $844,495 for the three months ended June 30, 2018, a 94% increase. Revenue in the three months ended June 30, 2019 included shipment of 16 EV ARC™ units to the city of New York, completing the latest purchase order received against our city-wide, multi-year contract. Other revenues in the period were derived from sales through our multi-year contract with the State of California and corporate sales. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, revenues were $2,829,945 compared to $3,720,467 for the same period in 2018, a 24% decrease caused in part by our later than anticipated closing of the public offering, causing delays in the development of new products and delivery of existing products. Revenues from the city of New York were very strong in both periods, with deliveries up 13% from 34 EV ARC™ units delivered in the six months ended June 30, 2019, compared to 30 units in the six months ended June 30, 2018.
Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $983,874, or $0.21 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $774,271, or $0.27 per basic and diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The increased loss for the quarter was due to higher operating expenses for Nasdaq fees, investor relations, trade shows, and a one-time consulting fee of $80,000, partially offset by lower commissions and decreased sales personnel due to a position which is temporarily open while the company recruits new sales and marketing personnel. Interest expense was also higher, primarily due to a one-time fee to extend a note due to delays in the public offering, which has since been paid off. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $1,933,505, or $0.51 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1,785,878, or $0.62 per basic and diluted share for the same period in the prior year. The increased loss was primarily due to increased operating expenses and interest expense for the reasons described above, as well as an offsetting decrease for director fees for non-cash compensation expense due to the timing of grants. The net loss, excluding interest expense that will cease as a result of the debt reduction, would have been reduced to approximately $657,000 and $1,231,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Cash increased from $244,024 at December 31, 2018 to $5,917,218 at June 30, 2019. The cash balance at June 30, 2019 reflects the public offering and over-allotment exercise resulting in gross proceeds of $13.2 million. Funds from this offering were used to pay off all of the Company’s debt, including the convertible line of credit, convertible notes payable and notes payable, offering costs, to pay down accounts payable and accrued interest, and to fund inventory and accounts receivable. Inventory and accounts receivable together amount to approximately $3.0 million.
