Red Cat Holdings Reports Second Quarter Financial Results


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Dec. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Red Cat Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RCAT) (“Red Cat” or “Company”), a military technology company that integrates robotic hardware and software to provide critical situational awareness and actionable intelligence to on-the-ground warfighters and battlefield commanders, reports financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2023 (three months ended 10/31/2022) and provides a business update.

Recent Highlights:

Enterprise

  • Skypersonic delivered drones, rover, and piloting platform to NASA’s Simulated Mars Mission
  • Established partnership between Teal Drones (“Teal”) and Tomahawk Robotics that allows Teal’s 4-Ship Multi-Vehicle Systems to simultaneously control air- and ground-based vehicles
  • U.S. Border Patrol purchased over $1 million in drones
  • Skypersonic demonstrated remote-piloted drone at LoveIT Detroit’s Aerospace Reception
  • Teal received FAA waiver to hold public demonstration of its Eris technology that enables a single pilot to simultaneously control multiple drones
  • Skypersonic demonstrated its “Fly Anywhere” technology on Mt. Etna, an active volcano in Sicily
  • Teal demonstrated multi-drone mapping capability to U.S. military with partner Reveal Technology

Consumer

  • Agreement signed to divest Consumer Business to Unusual Machines
  • Gross sale price of $18 million will provide non-dilutive capital to support market opportunities in the Enterprise segment, especially with the military

Corporate and Financial Highlights:

  • Mary Beth Long, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense, joined Red Cat’s Board of Directors
  • Year-to-date revenues of $4.6 million compared to prior year revenues of $3.3 million, representing growth of more than 40%
  • Cash and Investment balances of $32.9 million at October 31, 2022
  • Inventory, including prepayments of $3.7 million, totaled $10.3 million at October 31, 2022, which fully address lingering supply chain challenges and positions Company to promptly deliver on Enterprise orders
  • Expansion of manufacturing facility at Teal expected to be completed in fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 and will double production capacity

“Our second quarter was a pivotal one for focusing on the military and defense markets, domestically and globally,” said Red Cat CEO Jeff Thompson. “In October, we received our first purchase order from U.S. Customs and Border Protection for more than $1 million as part of a previously-announced blanket purchase agreement (BPA) worth an estimated $90 million.  We expect to ship this order in January 2023.  These drones will be the first to come off the production line from our new U.S. factory in Salt Lake City, which has the capacity to build thousands of drones. We are also pleased to report that the U.S. Army’s Short Range Reconnaissance Tranche 2 (SRR T2) program continues to expand in scope and value. Teal is working closely with the U.S. Army and will demonstrate the Teal Tranche 2 alpha prototype drone in January 2023.” 

“We are pleased to report year-to-date revenue growth of more than 40%,” stated Joseph Hernon, Chief Financial Officer. “The divestiture of our Consumer business will generate a solid return on our investment and strongly position us to take advantage of greater sales opportunities in the commercial sector, especially with the military.”
