Management Commentary

“XL Fleet continues to deliver on its commitments, including achieving record fourth quarter and full-year 2020 revenue, capping off the most successful year in our company’s history,” said Dimitri Kazarinoff, Chief Executive Officer of XL Fleet. “We nearly tripled revenue despite the significant challenges facing industries and economies across the globe, delivered more than 1,500 systems to a strong base of customers, while generating positive gross margins. Following the completion of our business combination in December and warrant redemption in March, we are armed with approximately $408 million in cash, and we believe we are extremely well positioned to continue executing our growth strategy and to maintain a leadership position in the rapidly growing commercial fleet electrification market.”

“We are proud to be a leader in commercial fleet electrification, with over 4,300 systems sold through 2020, hundreds of commercial fleet customers throughout North America, and over 150 million customer miles driven,” said Tod Hynes, Founder and President of XL Fleet. “We continue to successfully scale our platform, grow our team, expand our portfolio of electrification solutions, and enable our customers to meet their sustainability and operational goals, while upholding the performance and reliability they require. Our mission is to make electrification simple, efficient and low-cost. Our growing solutions portfolio, including ongoing development of all-electric solutions and development of XL Grid, positions us well to become a comprehensive solutions provider for commercial fleet electrification.”

Outlook

“We believe the long-term outlook for the commercial fleet market remains robust, with continued growth in demand for electrification and our expanding base of solutions,” said Mr. Kazarinoff. “The world is electrifying – however, economies and businesses around the world continue to face ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, we continue to experience significant friction including OEM delays amid microchip and other shortages, and currently forecast first quarter 2021 revenue of approximately $1 million, or roughly flat versus the prior year quarter.”

“Given this ongoing uncertainty and the potential for extended industry-wide issues, combined with typical seasonal patterns in our orders and a significant majority of revenues focused on the second half as in prior years, we are not currently providing formal full-year 2021 financial guidance. As these pressures abate, we expect to see a stronger market environment emerge later this year. In this scenario, we would expect to realize significant revenue growth in 2021, accompanied by even more pronounced seasonality and therefore weighting to the second half of the year.”

Full-Year 2020 Financial Results

Revenue totaled $20.3 million for full-year 2020, reflecting an increase of 182% as compared to $7.2 million for the full-year 2019. Gross profit totaled $2.7 million for the full-year 2020, compared to a gross loss of $0.9 million for the full-year 2019. Adjusted EBITDA for the full-year 2020 totaled ($14.7), compared to ($13.3) million for the full-year 2019.

Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Revenue totaled $10.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Gross profit totaled $2.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to a gross loss of $0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA totaled ($1.8) million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to ($3.8) million for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Balance Sheet and Capital

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2020 totaled $329.6 million. Following the Public Warrant redemption completed in March 2021, total cash and cash equivalents increased by an additional $85.6 million, resulting in total cash and cash equivalents of $407.9 million as of March 15, 2021.
