NOTE 1: NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Arcimoto, Inc. (the “Company”) was originally formed on November 21, 2007 as WTP Incorporated, an Oregon Corporation, and later changed its name to Arcimoto, Inc. The Company was founded in order to build products that catalyze the shift to a sustainable transportation system. The first step in this shift has been developing an affordable, daily utility, pure electric vehicle. Over the past 13 years, the Company has developed a revolutionary new vehicle platform designed around the needs of everyday drivers. Its main product is the Fun Utility Vehicle® (“FUV”), the first real, affordable, and fossil-free alternative for the vast majority of daily trips. Compared to the average car, the FUV has dropped 2/3 of the weight and 2/3 of the footprint, in order to bring the joy of ultra-efficient, pure electric driving to the masses.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Company currently has limited production and distribution capabilities. Facilities to manufacture vehicles at limited scale are substantially complete. We started retail production at one FUV per build day and ramped to two per build day in the first quarter of 2020, prior to the COVID-19 production shutdown. We have restarted limited production and are planning to resume deliveries to customers in the third quarter. Arcimoto does not have a history of higher-scale production and may encounter delays, flaws, inability to raise sufficient capital, or inefficiencies in the manufacturing process, which may prevent or delay achieving higher-scale production within the anticipated timeline.

 

Part of the Company’s strategy is to use vehicle rentals to generate a positive cash flow from customer test drive activities. As with any strategy, there is the risk that the rental business will not be successful.

 

As of June 30, 2020, the Company has $5,623,335 in inventory and another $501,544 in prepaid inventory not yet received. Certain inventory components are included in prepaid inventory that have long lead times requiring payment in advance.

  

The Company’s business and operations are sensitive to general governmental policy, business and economic conditions in the United States and worldwide. A host of factors beyond the Company’s control could cause fluctuations in these conditions. Other developments, including but not limited to economic recessions, import tariffs, trends in vehicle manufacturing, consumer taste, availability of inventory, and changes in government policy related to cars and motorcycles, could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition and the results of its operations.

 

The Company’s industry is characterized by rapid changes in technology and customer demands. As a result, the Company’s products and services may quickly become obsolete and unmarketable. The Company’s future success will depend on its ability to adapt to technological advances, anticipate customer demands, develop new products and services and enhance our current products and services on a timely and cost-effective basis. Further, the Company’s products and services must remain competitive with those of other companies with substantially greater resources. The Company may experience technical or other difficulties that could delay or prevent the development, introduction or marketing of new products and services or enhanced versions of existing products and services. Also, the Company may not be able to adapt new or enhanced products and services to emerging industry standards, and the Company’s new products and services may not be favorably received. In addition, we may not have the capital resources to further the development of existing and/or new products. To achieve full-scale production and develop new products or enhanced versions of existing products, the Company will need substantial additional working capital, and there is no assurance such capital will be available on reasonable terms, if at all.

 

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” and on March 10, 2020, declared it to be a pandemic. Actions taken around the world to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 include restrictions on travel, quarantines in certain areas, and forced closures for certain types of public places and businesses. COVID-19 and actions taken to mitigate it have had, and are expected to continue to have, an adverse impact on the economies and financial markets of many countries, including the geographical area in which the Company operates.

 

In response to the pandemic, the Company announced on March 19, 2020, that it was temporarily suspending all production of the Fun Utility Vehicle at its U.S. factory located in Eugene, Oregon. We have subsequently restarted limited production and are planning to resume deliveries to customers in the third quarter. The Company plans to maintain a work-from-home staff for all employees that can work from home, to push forward critical operations, including compliance and reporting, research and development, customer service, and deployment of the Company’s recently-launched Rapid Responder and Deliverator pilot vehicles to key potential fleet operators.

 

As part of the suspension of production, the Company furloughed approximately 67% of its workforce with the remaining individuals continuing to work full or part time, which resulted in meaningful cost reductions during the period of shutdown. We were able to retain most of the furloughed workers after production resumed. As a result of the shut-down, the first three quarters of 2020 revenue activities were negatively impacted. The fourth quarter 2020 and subsequent quarters may be negatively impacted based on the length and severity of the pandemic.

 

It is reasonably possible that estimates made in the financial statements have been, or will be, materially and adversely impacted in the near term as a result of these conditions.

 

We have applied for Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) and Economic Injury Disaster Loans (“EIDL”) through the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) that were made available under the CARES Act passed by Congress in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company received PPP loan proceeds of $1,068,686 on May 6, 2020, and is in the process of applying for conversion to a grant.

NOTE 2: GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on the basis that the Company is a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has experienced recurring operating losses and negative operating cash flows since inception.

 

The Company has not achieved positive earnings and operating cash flows to enable the Company to finance its operations internally. Funding for the business to date has come primarily through the issuance of debt and equity securities. The Company may require additional funding to continue to operate in the normal course of business. The substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern has been alleviated based on management’s belief that current cash reserves will sustain operations in excess of 12 months.

 

Although the Company’s objective is to increase its revenues from the sales of its products sufficient to generate positive operating and cash flow levels, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in this regard. The Company may need to raise additional capital in order to fund its operations, which if needed, it intends to obtain through debt and/or equity offerings. Funds on hand and any follow-on capital, will be used to invest in our business to expand sales and marketing efforts, including Company-owned and franchise-rental operations and the systems to support them, enhance our current product lines by continuing research and development (“R&D”) to enhance and reduce the cost of the FUV and to bring future variants to retail production, continue to build out and optimize our production facility, debt repayment, and fund operations until positive cash flow is achieved. The need for additional capital may be adversely impacted by uncertain market conditions or approval by regulatory bodies.

 

NOTE 3: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Unaudited Interim Financial Information

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information, and pursuant to the instructions to Form 10-Q promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all information and disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statement presentation. In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as of June 30, 2020, and the results of its operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 and its cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. Results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2020. The information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2019 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 14, 2020.

Customer Deposits

 

44 non-refundable customer deposits are comingled with operating funds. 4,398 refundable customer deposits are generally held in a separate deposit account. Revenue is not recognized on customer deposits until the deposit is applied to a non-refundable vehicle order, the vehicle manufacturing process is completed, the vehicle is picked up by or delivered to the customer and the appropriate revenue recognition criteria have been met per our policy below.

 

Net Earnings or Loss per Share

 

The Company’s computation of earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) includes basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is measured as the income (loss) available to common shareholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is similar to basic EPS but presents the dilutive effect on a per share basis of potential common shares (e.g., common stock warrants and common stock options) as if they had been converted at the beginning of the periods presented, or issuance date, if later. Potential common shares that have an anti-dilutive effect (i.e., those that increase income per share or decrease loss per share) are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS.

 

Loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the respective periods. Basic and diluted loss per common share is the same for all periods presented because all common stock warrants and common stock options outstanding were anti-dilutive.

 

At June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company excluded the outstanding Employee Equity Plans (“EEP”) and other securities summarized below using the Treasury Stock Method, which entitled the holders thereof to ultimately acquire shares of common stock, from its calculation of earnings per share, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company continually assesses any new accounting pronouncements to determine their applicability. When it is determined that a new accounting pronouncement affects the Company’s financial reporting, the Company undertakes a study to determine the consequences of the change to its financial statements and assures that there are proper controls in place to ascertain that the Company’s financial statements properly reflect the change.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” (“ASU 2016-02”) which supersedes ASC Topic 840, Leases. ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability on their balance sheets for all the leases with terms greater than 12 months. Based on certain criteria, leases will be classified as either financing or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, a lessee is permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset not to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities. If a lessee makes this election, it should recognize lease expense for such leases generally on a straight-line basis over the lease term. In November 2019, the FASB delayed the effective date for Topic 842 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020 for private companies and emerging growth companies, and interim periods within those years, with early adoption permitted. In June 2020, the FAAB issued ASU No 2020-05 that further delayed the effective date of Topic 842 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021. We will adopt this new standard on January 1, 2022. In transition, lessees and lessors are required to recognize and measure leases at the beginning of the earliest period presented using a modified retrospective approach. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11, “Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements” that allows entities to apply the provisions of the new standard at the effective date, as opposed to the earliest period presented under the modified retrospective transition approach and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The modified retrospective approach includes a number of optional practical expedients primarily focused on leases that commenced before the effective date of Topic 842, including continuing to account for leases that commence before the effective date in accordance with previous guidance, unless the lease is modified. The Company currently expects that most of its operating lease commitments will be subject to the new standard and recognized as operating lease liabilities and right-of-use assets upon its adoption of Topic 842, which will increase the total assets and total liabilities that the Company reports relative to such amounts prior to adoption.

 

Adoption of Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which simplifies the accounting for share-based payments granted to nonemployees for goods and services. Under the ASU, most of the guidance on such payments to nonemployees would be aligned with the requirements for share-based payments granted to employees. The amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than an entity’s adoption date of Topic 606. The Company adopted the new standard on January 1, 2020. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements. 

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2018-13, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework – Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement”. ASU 2018-13 removes certain disclosures, modifies others and introduces additional disclosure requirements for entities. The amendments in ASU 2018-13 for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Amendments on changes in unrealized gains and losses, the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements, and the narrative description of measurement uncertainty should be applied prospectively for only the most recent interim or annual period presented in the initial fiscal year of adoption. All other amendments should be applied retrospectively to all periods presented upon their effective date. The Company adopted the new standard on January 1, 2020. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

NOTE 7: NOTES PAYABLE

 

On December 27, 2018, the Company entered into a Subscription Agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”) with FOD Capital, LLC, a Florida limited liability company (the “Investor”), pursuant to which the Company issued to the Investor (i) 500,000 shares of its common stock, no par value per share at a purchase price of $3.00 per share (the “Shares”), (ii) a warrant to purchase up to 942,857 shares of common stock at $3.50 per share (the “Warrant”), and (iii) a senior secured note in the principal amount of $3,000,000 (the “Note”). See Note 8 for additional details. On September 12, 2019, the Company issued an additional $500,000 note (“additional Note”) to the Investor, net of a $15,000 discount. The additional Note principal plus accrued interest is convertible into the Company’s common stock at a conversion price per share of $4.25. Accrued interest expense excluding the discount amortization for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020 was $164,572.

There was no such interest expense for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019. On June 15, 2020, both notes were repaid in cash, principal in the amount of $3,500,000 and accrued interest in the amount of $479,809 for a total payment of $3,979,809.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company had 10%, one-year convertible promissory notes outstanding totaling $1,310,893, of which $962,829 was due to related parties.

NOTE 9: STOCK-BASED PAYMENTS

 

The Company grants common stock, common stock units, and common stock purchase options and warrants pursuant to the 2018 Omnibus Stock Incentive Plan (“2018 Plan”), Amended and Restated 2015 Stock Incentive Plan (“2015 Plan”) and the Second Amended and Restated 2012 Employee Stock Benefit Plan (“2012 Plan”).

 

The Company measures employee stock-based awards at grant-date fair value and recognizes employee compensation expense on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the award. Grants to non-employees are expensed at the earlier of (i) the date at which a commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instrument is reached and (ii) the date at which the counterparty’s performance is complete. The Company recognizes stock option forfeitures as they occur as there is insufficient historical data to accurately determine future forfeiture rates.

 

Determining the appropriate fair value of stock-based awards requires the input of subjective assumptions, including the fair value of the Company’s common stock, and for stock options, the expected life of the option, and expected stock price volatility. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to value its stock option awards. The assumptions used in calculating the fair value of stock-based awards represent management’s best estimates and involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management’s judgment. As a result, if factors change and management uses different assumptions, stock-based compensation expense could be materially different for future awards.

 

The Company uses the following inputs when valuing stock-based awards. The expected life of employee stock options was estimated using the “simplified method,” as the Company has insufficient historical information to develop reasonable expectations about future exercise patterns and employment duration for its stock option grants. The simplified method is based on the average of the vesting tranches and the contractual life of each grant. The expected life of awards that vest immediately use the contractual maturity since they are vested when issued. For stock price volatility, the Company uses public company comparables as a basis for its expected volatility to calculate the fair value of option grants. The risk-free interest rate is based on U.S. Treasury notes with a term approximating the expected life of the option at the grant-date.

 

Stock-based compensation, including stock-options, warrants and stock issued for compensation and services is included in the statements of operations as follows:

2018 Omnibus Stock Incentive Plan

 

The 2018 Plan authorizing 1,000,000 shares was approved by the Board of Directors and then the Company’s shareholders at the Company’s 2018 annual meeting of shareholders held on June 9, 2018. At the 2019 Annual Meeting, the shareholders approved an additional 1,000,000 shares of common stock to be issued under the 2018 Plan. On April 20, 2020, the board of directors approved an increase from 2,000,000 to 4,000,000 shares; at the annual shareholder meeting on June 20, 2020, the increase was approved by a majority of the shareholders.

 

The 2018 Plan provides the Company the ability to grant to employees, directors, consultants or advisors shares of common stock of the Company through the grant of equity awards, including, but not limited to, options that are incentive stock options or NQSOs and restricted stock, provided that only employees are entitled to receive incentive stock options in accordance with IRS guidelines. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had a remaining reserve of 2,005,351 shares of common stock under the 2018 Plan. Awards that are forfeited generally become available for grant under the 2018 Plan.

The amount of future stock option compensation expense could be affected by any future option grants or forfeitures.

 

On January 6, 2020, the board of directors approved a director deferred compensation plan under the 2018 Plan. The deferred compensation plan calls for stock units to be held on account for each director and issued 90 days after separation from service as a director. If cash reserves are estimated to be less than the amount needed for 5 months of operations the Directors are required to take their compensation in Deferred Stock Units under the 2018 Plan, otherwise, Directors have the option of taking compensation in any combination of cash or Deferred Stock Units. For the six months ended June 30, 2020, a total of 108,743 stock units with a value of $277,880, based on the closing price on the last day of the quarter, were reserved and expensed. 28,673 of the stock units were valued with a price per share of $1.61 based on the closing stock price on the last trading day of the fourth quarter of 2019, and were recorded as a $46,163 expense on January 6, 2020 because the plan was adopted by the Board of Directors retroactively to the fourth quarter 2019. 46,584 of the stock units were valued with a price per share of $1.15 based on the closing stock price on the last trading day of the first quarter of 2020, and were recorded as a $53,572 expense on March 31, 2020. 33,486 of the stock units were valued with a price per share of $5.32 based on the closing stock price on the last trading day of the second quarter of 2020, and were recorded as a $178,146 expense on June 30, 2020.

NOTE 11: COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Litigation 

 

On March 11, 2018, the Company was served with a lawsuit entitled John R Switzer vs W.R. Hambrecht & Co. LLC et al., Case Number: CGC-18-564904, filed in San Francisco County Superior Court in the State of California. In this action, the Company was named as a defendant along with five individuals who were directors and/or executive officers at the time of the completion of the Company’s Regulation A offering on September 21, 2017. The action was styled as a putative class action, alleged on behalf of all those who purchased the Company’s common stock in its Regulation A offering. The plaintiff alleged violations of Section 12(a)(2) and Section 15 of the Securities Act, and is seeking damages in an unspecified amount to be proven at trial. In addition, on March 28, 2018, the Company was served with another lawsuit entitled Jay Mendelson v. Arcimoto, Inc. et al., Case Number CGC-18-565324, filed in San Francisco County Superior Court in the State of California. In that action, which was styled as a putative class action, the Company was also named as a defendant along with the same individuals who were directors and/or executive officers at the time of the completion of our Regulation A offering on September 21, 2017. The allegations and claims made in the Mendelson action were substantially similar to those of the Switzer action and the plaintiff was also seeking damages in an unspecified amount to be proven at trial. The two actions were consolidated into a single lawsuit on May 28, 2018. The Company believes that the consolidated lawsuit was without merit and vigorously defended itself against these claims in court. On July 30, 2018, counsel for the Company filed a demurrer to the consolidated complaint, seeking its dismissal. By Order dated September 19, 2018, the San Francisco Court sustained in part and denied in part the demurrer. On September 28, 2018, plaintiffs in that case filed a First Amended Consolidated Complaint. The Company denied the substantive claims and allegations made in that amended pleading and continued to assert a vigorous defense. On January 25, 2019, the parties reached a settlement agreement in the consolidated cases, subject to court approval. The parties to the lawsuit have filed a motion with the court seeking approval of the settlement agreement. On June 5, 2020, the Court signed the Order Granting Final Approval of Class Action Settlement. By its terms, the settlement agreement resolves this litigation in its entirety. The settlement amount, which is not material, was paid in full by Arcimoto’s insurance carriers.

 

On March 6, 2020, the Company filed a complaint (“the Complaint”) against Ayro, Inc. (“Ayro”), accusing Ayro of patent infringement in Federal District Court for the Western District of Texas, Waco Division (Case No. 6:20-cv-00176-ADA) (“the Ayro Litigation”). In the Complaint, Arcimoto alleges that Ayro’s 311 two-seater electric vehicles infringe U.S. Patent 8,985,255 (the “255 Patent”). The Complaint asks for monetary damages and enhanced damages due to willful infringement of the 255 Patent by Ayro. On March 27, 2020, Ayro answered the Complaint, denying liability and asserting counterclaims of noninfringement and patent invalidity. The Court had a telephonic Scheduling Conference on April 29, 2020 and set the Markman Hearing for October 15, 2020. The Court has yet to set a trial date.

Overview

 

Arcimoto’s mission is to catalyze the shift to a sustainable transportation system. Since our incorporation, we have been engaged primarily in the design, development and manufacture of ultra-efficient three-wheeled electric vehicles. Arcimoto was formed on November 21, 2007 as WTP Incorporated, an Oregon corporation, and later changed its name to Arcimoto, Inc. We design, develop, manufacture, sell, and rent through franchised locations ultra-efficient fully electric vehicles. 

 

2019 was a watershed year for the Company, which saw us complete compliance testing required to produce and sell retail vehicles, outfit the scalable, automated, vertically-integrated Arcimoto Manufacturing Plant for retail production; begin retail production of the Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV); develop our post-production programs including service, support, recall and supplier quality management; and deliver first vehicles to our first rental franchisee in Key West, Florida. We also expanded our product portfolio offering with the announcement of the Rapid Responder and Deliverator platform concepts targeted at fleet verticals.

 

Retail production began on September 19, 2019. In total, Arcimoto produced 57 model year 2019 FUVs, 46 of which were delivered to customers by December 31, 2019. To date, Arcimoto has built more than 100 production vehicles.

 

In mid-March 2020, the Company suspended production operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, following the launch of production pilots of the Rapid Responder and Deliverator product lines. We have restarted limited production and are planning to resume deliveries to customers in the third quarter. The Company’s focus is now squarely on volume production planning, in order to push to sustainable profitability and meet the demands posed by the thousands of preorders still in our queue, as well as those we generate by the pilots of our fleet offerings in the field. The Company has received a Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loan and applied for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan (“EIDL”) through the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) that were made available under the CARES Act passed by Congress in response to the COVID-19 pandemic at the end of March 2020. The Company is currently preparing an application for the Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program to secure the funds necessary to execute our growth strategy.

  

Thesis

 

Arcimoto develops and manufactures products tuned for the utility needs of everyday driving. By doing so, we aim to deliver meaningfully more efficient solutions to the market, at a fraction of the total cost of ownership of today’s cars. Current automotive platforms are inefficient by design. Cars can weigh upwards of 4,000 lbs., take up an average area of almost 100 square feet and are highly inefficient. The vast majority of daily transportation tasks are those involving one or two people, traveling a relatively short distance, with a relatively small volume of items.

 

21

 

 

Platform and Technologies

 

Arcimoto spent its first decade developing and refining eight generations of a new three-wheeled electric vehicle platform: a light-footprint, nimble reverse-trike architecture that features a low center of gravity for stability on the road, dual-motor front-wheel drive for enhanced traction, can be parked three to a space while carrying two large adults comfortably, and is more efficient, by an order of magnitude, than today’s gas-powered cars.

 

Products

 

Arcimoto’s three vehicle products are based on the Arcimoto Platform. While intended to serve very different market segments, an estimated 90% of the constituent parts are the same between our three initial products.

 

Fun Utility Vehicle® (FUV®

 

Arcimoto’s flagship product is the Fun Utility Vehicle. The FUV delivers a thrilling ride experience, exceptional maneuverability, comfort for two passengers with cargo, highly-efficient parking (three FUVs to a single parking space), and ultra-efficient operation, all at an affordable price. Over time, we anticipate offering the FUV with several option packages to meet the needs of a variety of customers. As of June 30, 2020, we had 4,398 FUV pre-orders with small refundable deposits, representing an increase of 201, or 5%, from the 4,197 pre-orders as of December 31, 2019.

 

Arcimoto’s first entry into the market is the Evergreen Edition FUV. We are leading with a consumer product, because we are a consumer-first brand. We believe individuals should be able to choose more efficient, more affordable, and lighter-footprint mobility solutions, so that more of us can participate in the transition to a sustainable transportation future. As of June 30, 2020, we delivered 84 Evergreen Edition FUVs to retail customers.

 

Rapid Responder™

 

The Rapid Responder was announced on February 15, 2019. The pure-electric Rapid Responder is developed on the Arcimoto platform, and designed to perform specialized emergency, security and law enforcement services at a fraction of the cost and environmental impact of traditional combustion vehicles. The Rapid Responder aims to deliver first responders to incidents more quickly and affordably than traditional emergency response vehicles.

 

Arcimoto is initially targeting the more than 50,000 fire stations across the United States that use traditional fire engines and large automobiles to respond to calls. Arcimoto also plans to market the Rapid Responder as a solution for campus security and law enforcement applications as well.

 

Arcimoto’s test of the Rapid Responder in a pilot program with the City of Eugene, the Eugene-Springfield Fire Department, is ongoing and the second vehicle is expected to be delivered soon with a single seat for more cargo capacity. We are targeting delivery of the first production Rapid Responders in 2020.

 

Deliverator™

 

Development of the Deliverator was officially announced on March 19, 2019 with the reveal of the first Deliverator prototype.

 

The Deliverator is a pure electric, last-mile delivery solution designed to more quickly, efficiently, and affordably get goods where they need to go. We plan for the Deliverator to be customizable to carry a wide array of products, from pizza, groceries and cold goods to the 65 billion parcels delivered worldwide annually.

 

We have several ongoing pilot programs: the first with a local non-profit delivering supplies to the unhoused during the pandemic, two rentable Deliverators with a gig vehicle rental service in Los Angeles, and one with a franchise in the quick-serve restaurant industry in Key West, Florida. We are targeting several additional pilot programs, as well as delivery of the first production Deliverators, through the remainder of 2020.

Management Opportunities, Challenges and Risks

 

Demand, Production and Capital

 

Demand for the Retail Series Arcimoto FUV has continued to increase. As of June 30, 2020, we had 4,398 FUV pre-orders with small refundable deposits, representing an increase of 201, or approximately 5%, from the 4,197 pre-orders as of December 31, 2019.

 

We began taking $5,000 non-refundable reservations for the Fun Utility Vehicle in the first quarter of 2019 with a starting price point of $19,900. The average sales price, including custom upgrade options, for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was $24,413. We secured non-refundable reservations for the first 100 FUVs in anticipation of initial retail production and delivery. In the last week of September 2019, we delivered the first two (2) Evergreen Edition FUVs. In total, Arcimoto produced 57 model year 2019 FUVs, 46 of which were delivered to customers by December 31, 2019. An additional 38 model year 2019 and 2020 FUVs were delivered to customers during the six months ended June 30, 2020.

 

In the third quarter of 2019, we completed vehicle testing. Arcimoto tested to verify robustness of its vehicle design to demonstrate compliance with all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards required for motorcycles, and to demonstrate proper function of voluntarily-added equipment such as the FUV’s 3+3 seat belts. Following completion of compliance testing, we initiated the sales process with our first customers. As sales are completed pre-order and reservation fees are applied to the purchase price and balances due are collected on delivery.

 

We temporarily suspended production in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Though conditions in Lane County have worsened since, we resumed limited production in Q2, implementing significant safety measures. We are currently targeting Q3 2020 to resume customer deliveries. With FUV production currently limited, we are focusing on pilot programs for the Rapid Responder and Deliverator, performing value engineering and planning for volume manufacture to achieve sustainable profitability, applying to the Federal Department of Energy’s Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program (“ATVMLP”) to finance high volume production (10,000+ units/year), engaging sales efforts focused on fleet deployments, and expanding our service network.

 

We have contracted with a lean design consultant to evaluate Arcimoto’s manufacturing processes and supply chain management in order to drive down costs and begin high-volume production of Arcimoto ultra-efficient electric vehicles.

 

Trends in Cash Flow, Capital Expenditures and Operating Expenses

 

In 2019, Arcimoto generated cash flow from retail production vehicle sales for the first time. Cash inflow from vehicle sales has been substantially reduced following the suspension of production due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Our capital expenditures for low-volume production are substantially complete, with minimal (approximately $1,600,000) capital costs in our 2020 plan for tooling, quality test equipment, leasehold improvements, service and delivery vehicles. We are bringing the thermo forming of body panels inhouse and ordered approximately $1,162,000 in equipment for this. Approximately $1,108,000 of this amount has been financed at interest rates ranging from 4.37% to 5.66% and terms from 60 to 84 months, as discussed in the subsequent events notes to the financial statements. The Company is preparing a significant ATVMLP application to finance high volume production.

 

Operating expenses decreased by approximately 30%, or $1,981,000, for the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. This decrease was due to transferring approximately $1,989,000 in overhead to Cost of Goods Sold now that the Company is in production and these functions are no longer performing R&D. The number of employees increased by approximately 4%, from 99 as of June 30, 2019 to 103 employees as of June 30, 2020. In December 2017, we moved into an approximately 32,000 square-foot facility from our previous 5,000 square-foot facility. In June 2018, we added 5,291 square feet of manufacturing and office space, and in October 2018, we re-negotiated the lease for this space. From December 2019 to March 2020 we added another approximately 21,600 square feet of manufacturing and office space. As a result, we incurred costs associated with equipping the employees, implementing systems, and running the larger facilities. R&D costs decreased by approximately 76%, or $2,363,000, during the six months ended June 30, 2020, as this was the majority of the overhead moved to Cost of Goods Sold. Work was focused on developing hard doors for the FUV, the Deliverator, and Emergency Responder. Sales and marketing costs increased by approximately 23%, or $120,000. Approximately 133%, or $159,000, of the increase was for developing the franchise rental business, the reminder of the increase was due to a 10% increase in non-cash compensation a 9% decrease in salaries and benefits and a 14% decrease in marketing activities. General and administrative cost increased mainly due to investor relations.

New Accounting Pronouncements

 

For a description of our critical accounting policies and estimates, please refer to the “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in Note 3 to our Financial Statements under Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 14, 2020.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, costs and expenses and related disclosures. We base our estimates on historical experience, as appropriate, and on various other assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances. Changes in the accounting estimates are reasonably likely to occur from period to period. Accordingly, actual results could differ significantly from the estimates made by our management. We evaluate our estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis. To the extent that there are material differences between these estimates and actual results, our future financial statement presentation, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows will be affected.  See Note 3 to our Financial Statements under Part I, Item I of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
