CONDENSED NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1: NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Arcimoto, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Oregon on November 21, 2007. The Company’s mission is to catalyze the global shift to a sustainable transportation system. Over the past 13 years, the Company has developed a new vehicle platform designed around the needs of everyday drivers. Having approximately one-third the weight and one-third of the footprint of the average car, the Arcimoto platform’s purpose is to bring the joy of ultra-efficient, pure electric driving to the masses. To date, the Company has introduced five vehicle products built on this platform that target specific niches in the vehicle market: our flagship product, the Fun Utility Vehicle® (“FUV®”), for everyday consumer trips; the Deliverator® for last-mile delivery and general fleet utility; the Rapid Responder™ for emergency services and security; the Cameo™ for film, sports and influencers; and the Arcimoto Roadster, an unparalleled pure-electric on-road thrill machine.

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

We started retail production in the third quarter of 2019 at one FUV per build day and ramped to two per build day in the first quarter of 2020 before suspending production in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We restarted production and resumed deliveries to customers in the third quarter of 2020. As a result of the suspension, revenues from 2020 were negatively impacted. Revenues from subsequent quarters may be negatively impacted based on the length and severity of the pandemic. Production in the first quarter of 2021 achieved three FUV per build day and successfully tested to validate four per day.

 

Further, Arcimoto does not have a history of higher-scale production and may encounter delays or inefficiencies in its sales and manufacturing processes, which may prevent or delay achieving higher-scale production within anticipated timeliness. In order to achieve higher-scale production, the Company may need to raise additional capital, and there can be no assurance such capital will be available upon reasonable terms, if at all.

 

Additionally, the Company’s business and operations are sensitive to governmental policies on importation and exportation, as well as the availability of vehicle components from suppliers, which themselves may be impacted by pandemics and such, as well as the ever-shifting general landscape of governmental policy related to cars and motorcycles.

 

The Company’s industry is characterized by rapid changes in technology and customer demands. The Company’s future success will depend on its ability to adapt to technological advances, its nimble reaction to customer demands, its development of well-considered new products and services, and the enhancement of its current products and services on a timely and cost-effective basis.

 

Finally, the Company may not have the capital resources necessary to further the development of existing and/or new products.

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 March 31, 2021, and the results of its operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 and its cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. Results for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021. 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, 2020 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 31, 2021.

 

Business Combinations

 

The Company accounts for business combinations under Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 805 “Business Combinations” using the acquisition method of accounting, and accordingly, the assets and liabilities of the acquired business are recorded at their fair values at the date of acquisition. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair value of the net assets acquired is recorded as goodwill. All acquisition costs are expensed as incurred. Upon acquisition, the acquired assets and liabilities and results of operations are consolidated beginning at the acquisition date.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory is stated at the lower of cost (using the first-in, first-out method (“FIFO”) or market value. Inventories consist of purchased electric motors, electrical storage and transmission equipment, and component parts.

Raw materials  $4,892,827   $4,667,780

Finished goods   690,919    371,078 
Total  $5,642,824   $5,104,068 

 

The Company is required to remit partial prepayments for some purchases of its inventories acquired from overseas vendors which are included in prepaid inventories. The Company is currently selling vehicles below the base cost of a finished unit. Accordingly, the Company expensed all labor and overhead as period costs, and recorded an allowance to reduce inventories to net realizable value of approximately $593,000 and $550,000 as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

 

Customer Deposits

 

Non-refundable customer deposits are comingled with operating funds. Refundable customer deposits are 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.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets primarily consist of trade names/trademarks, proprietary technology, and customer relationships. They are amortized using the straight-lined method over a period of 10 to 14 years. The Company assesses the recoverability of its finite-lived intangible assets when there are indications of potential impairment. Indefinite-lived intangible assets are evaluated for impairment annually.

Goodwill

 

The Company tests goodwill for potential impairment at least annually, or more frequently if an event or other circumstance indicates that the Company may not be able to recover the carrying amount of the net assets of the reporting unit. In evaluating goodwill for impairment, the Company may assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not (that is, a likelihood of more than 50%) that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If the Company bypasses the qualitative assessment, or if the Company concludes that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying value, then the Company performs a quantitative impairment test by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount.

 

The Company calculates the estimated fair value of a reporting unit using a weighting of the income and market approaches. For the income approach, the Company uses internally developed discounted cash flow models that include the following assumptions, among others: projections of revenues, expenses, and related cash flows based on assumed long-term growth rates and demand trends; expected future investments to grow new units; and estimated discount rates. For the market approach, the Company uses internal analyses based primarily on market comparables. The Company bases these assumptions on its historical data and experience, third party appraisals, industry projections, micro and macro general economic condition projections, and its expectations.

 

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 March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company excluded the outstanding Employee Equity Plans (“EEP”) and other securities summarized below calculated 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 FASB 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 October 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-10, “Codification Improvements” (“ASU 2020-10”), which updates various codification topics by clarifying or improving disclosure requirements to align with the SEC’s regulations. The effective date of the standard will be for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2020 for public entities. The new guidance was effective upon issuance of this final accounting standards update. The Company has adopted this standard and the adoption did not have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements or disclosures.

Overview

 

Arcimoto, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Oregon on November 21, 2007. The Company’s mission is to catalyze the global shift to a sustainable transportation system. Over the past 13 years, the Company has developed a new vehicle platform designed around the needs of everyday drivers. Having approximately one-third the weight and one-third of the footprint of the average car, the Arcimoto platform’s purpose is to bring the joy of ultra-efficient, pure electric driving to the masses. To date, the Company has introduced five vehicle products built on this platform that target specific niches in the vehicle market: our flagship product, the Fun Utility Vehicle® (“FUV®”), for everyday consumer trips; the Deliverator® for last-mile delivery and general fleet utility; the Rapid Responder™ for emergency services and security; the Cameo™ for film, sports and influencers; and the Arcimoto Roadster, an unparalleled pure-electric on-road thrill machine.

 

Retail production began on September 19, 2019. In total, Arcimoto produced 57 model year 2019 vehicles, 46 of which were delivered to customers by December 31, 2019. During the year ended December 31, 2020, Arcimoto produced 117 model year 2020 vehicles, and delivered 97 vehicles to customers. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, Arcimoto produced 84 model year 2021 vehicles, and delivered 60 vehicles to customers, a 122% improvement over the 27 vehicles delivered to customers in the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

In March 2020, Arcimoto launched production pilots of the Rapid Responder and Deliverator product lines. In September 2020, the Company on-roaded its fourth product concept, the Cameo. In November 2020, the Company unveiled its fifth product concept, the Arcimoto Roadster prototype.

 

For portions of all four quarters of 2020, Arcimoto’s production operations were suspended in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company restarted limited production and resumed deliveries to customers in the third quarter of 2020.

 

The Company’s focus is now squarely on volume production planning in order to push to sustainable profitability and fulfill the thousands of pre-orders in our queue, as well as to meet the demand generated by our pilot fleet vehicles in the field. In December 2020, the Company entered into a purchase agreement for an approximately 220,000 square foot facility, which closed on April 19, 2021, to expand production capabilities. The Company is currently in the final stages of applying for the Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program to secure the funds necessary to execute our growth strategy.

 

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. The Company has secured 10 utility patents on various constituent technologies and vehicle platform architectures. As announced on June 10, 2020, Arcimoto has teamed with Munro & Associates 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.  This project which is estimated to take two years has progressed in the first quarter of 2021, with a statement of work signed for the next phase.

Products

 

Arcimoto’s 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 all products currently in production and development.

 

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.

 

We led 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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Cameo ()

 

Arcimoto completed a prototype of the Cameo, an FUV equipped with a rear-facing rear seat and a modified roof built for on-road filming in September 2020. We teased the Cameo prototype in several Arcimoto videos in September 2020 and have used the Cameo to shoot all of our own driving footage since its on-roading. Development of the Cameo is still in the planning stages.

 

The Cameo is aimed at the film industry, as well as the growing influencer and DIY film market.

 

Arcimoto Roadster

 

The Arcimoto Roadster prototype was first introduced in a video released October 30, 2020. Conceived as a pure platform fun machine, the Roadster offers a lower center of gravity, lower overall weight, and potentially improved aerodynamics. We announced the formal development of the Roadster product, in collaboration with industry partners on November 16, 2020.

 

18

 

 

Autonomous Arcimoto

 

Our long-term goal is to offer the market one of the lowest cost, most efficient “last mile” human and goods transport solutions for the robotically-driven world. We intend that our platform will provide a ready foundation for self-driving technology deployment.

 

Sales and Distribution Model

 

Arcimoto’s sales and distribution model is direct. Customers place vehicle orders on our website, and the vehicle product will be delivered directly to the end user via common carrier or our own delivery fleet. The website ordering and vehicle configuration system is functional, with further development planned to become more fully automated.

 

On October 26, 2020, we announced a partnership with DHL to provide nationwide home delivery of the FUV. They are currently handling the bulk of our customer deliveries. 

 

Rental Model

 

We plan to augment this direct web purchase process with small-footprint experience rental in select key markets. This rental model will give prospective customers a direct experience with the physical product before purchasing. We intend to open rental operations in San Diego, California and Eugene, Oregon in Q2 2021.

 

Service

 

We are pursuing three different models for service of the FUV:

 

Service-on-demand

 

Our initial model is on-demand and on-site vehicle service by Arcimoto technicians or Arcimoto-authorized technicians. Service-on-demand will likely be the primary model during our West Coast release as the majority of the vehicles will be geographically located relatively near the factory or a mobile technician. We intend for customers to request service either through the Arcimoto mobile app or by calling a 24-hour service number.

 

In-market partnership

 

We are currently reviewing potential service partners located in our key distribution regions. We have contracted with Agero Driver Assistance Services, Inc. to provide our customers with roadside assistance. We are currently reviewing Agero’s network of pre-approved third-party service providers, as well as other third-party service providers, to perform service on Arcimoto vehicles. We will be selecting and certifying providers near our customers based on our planned expansion.

 

Retail facility service

 

We plan to employ Arcimoto service technicians at some of our rental locations, depending on the dealer laws in the state. Customers near those rental locations would be able to deliver their vehicle to that location for service needs.

 

Management Opportunities, Challenges and Risks

 

Demand, Production and Capital

 

Demand for the Retail Series Arcimoto FUV has continued to increase. As of March 31, 2021, we had 4,833 net FUV pre-orders placed with small refundable deposits or fleet order commitments, representing an increase of 116, or approximately 2%, from the 4,717 pre-orders as of December 31, 2020.

 

19

 

 

We consider pre-orders to be strong sales leads, and use these leads as an indicator of market demand. Pre-orders are made up of small refundable cash deposits from individual retail customers and distribution agreements or nonbinding letters of intent from commercial customers that may or may not have deposited cash. The distribution of pre-orders as of March 31, 2021, is presented in the table below:

 

    Retail     Commercial     Total  
    Vehicles     Dollars     Vehicles     Dollars     Vehicles     Dollars  
Vehicles/Deposits     4,680     $ 474,224       800     $ 30,000       5,480     $ 504,224  
Refunds     (647 )     (64,700 )                 (647 )     (64,700 )
Total net pre-orders     4,033       409,524       800       30,000       4,833       439,524  
Less purchases     (192 )     (19,300 )     (6 )     (10,500 )     (198 )     (29,800 )
Remaining     3,841     $ 390,224       794       19,500       4,635       409,724  

 

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.

 

For portions of all four quarters of 2020, Arcimoto’s production operations were suspended in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company restarted limited production and resumed deliveries to customers in the third quarter of 2020.

 

With limited FUV production through 2020 and now extending into 2021, we are focusing on pilot programs for the Deliverator and Rapid Responder, 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 original equipment manufacturing (“OEM”) volume production, engaging sales efforts focused on fleet deployments, building and testing our rental operations, and expanding our service network.

 

The average sales price, including custom upgrade options, for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $20,853, $2,953 or 16.5% above the starting price. 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. 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 FUVs. In the third quarter of 2020, we began taking $2,500 non-refundable deposits for the second 100 FUV’s with a starting price point of $17,900. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, Arcimoto produced 84 model year 2021 vehicles, and delivered 60 vehicles to customers.

 

We have contracted with a lean design consulting company 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. To date, substantial progress has been made understanding the cost models for future vehicles based on the current supply chain condition, ergonomic studies, failure modes and effects analysis (“FMEA”), baseline ride-drive characteristics, mapping out EU certification, cost reduction for manufacturing, lean manufacturing analysis and the technology roadmap for future vehicles and marketing roadmap.

 

Arcimoto’s test of the Rapid Responder in a pilot program with the City of Eugene, the Eugene-Springfield Fire Department (“ESFD”) completed on March 31, 2021, and ESFD has provided us with valuable feedback for future product development and marketing. We are evaluating upfitters and defining the process for installation of non-compliant accessories such as lights and sirens and we released pricing and availability for the Rapid Responder in the first quarter of 2021.

 

We have several ongoing Deliverator pilot programs with individuals, municipalities, and corporate fleets. We have completed the first phase of tool-up for manufacture and production of the Deliverator, and we will continue to build Deliverators in low volume through the remainder of 2021, with the intent to deliver them to new pilot programs.

 

20

 

 

On September 26, 2020, Arcimoto introduced the beta Configurator, a web tool for selecting vehicle options and visualizing the final configured product. We subsequently opened $2,500 non-refundable reservations for production FUVs through the end of the year to pre-order customers in Washington, California, and Oregon, with a new starting price of $17,900, and many more configurable options than our previous offering. Average sales price as configured for the first 113 reservations is $21,893. While the beta Configurator has been an effective tool for converting early preorders to purchased vehicles, we are working on the next iteration, to improve user interface and experience.

 

On February 4, 2021, the Company closed and completed the Asset Purchase Agreement with Tilting Motor Works, Inc. (“TMW”). The Company believes the TMW product line will continue to flourish under Arcimoto, as we are able to bring considerable marketing and manufacturing efforts to bear, and the underlying technology will be beneficial to future Arcimoto products. Authorized dealer/installers of the TMW products are potential partners for providing product support services to FUV owners in certain areas. TMW delivered 10 of their existing product line bolt on front end kits that convert a two wheeled motorcycle to a three wheeled tilting reverse trike, generating $92,106 in revenue with a 27% gross margin, during the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Trends in Cash Flow, Capital Expenditures and Operating Expenses

 

In 2019, Arcimoto generated cash flow from retail production vehicle sales for the first time.

 

Our capital expenditures for low-volume production are substantially complete. We are bringing the thermo forming of body panels in-house and ordered approximately $1,741,000 in equipment for this process. Approximately $1,150,000 of this amount has been financed at interest rates ranging from 5.56% to 9.0% and terms of 60-72 months. We anticipate a savings of $780 per FUV produced with this automation. We purchased a multi-directional rotary brush machine at a total cost of $142,200 to automate the deburr and finishing of sheet metal. This was financed at an interest rate of 9.86% and term of 60 months. We purchased an additional CNC mill at a total cost of $173,860 to increase production capacity. This was financed at an interest rate of 4.11% for 60 months. We are purchasing an additional welding cell at a total cost of $286,674 for welding the two sides of the upper frame together, and a wire bonding machine at a cost of $211,524 for next generation battery module production. We anticipate securing low interest debt for these equipment purchases. We anticipate a savings of $390 per FUV produced with the welding automation. The Company is preparing an ATVMLP application to finance OEM volume production.

 

Operating expenses increased by approximately 154%, or $3,510,000, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. This increase was mostly due to increased R&D expense associated with developing the 2.0 FUV platform that is planned for OEM production volumes. Other factors are an increase in sales and marketing efforts and G&A expense associated with the integration of TWM. The number of employees increased by approximately 55%, from 110 as of March 31, 2020 to 170 employees as of March 31, 2021. The increased staff was needed to build out all parts of the Company for selling and servicing vehicles.

Sales and Marketing Expenses

 

Sales and marketing (“S&M”) expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 were approximately $964,000 and $337,000, respectively. The primary reasons for the increase in sales and marketing expenses during the three months ended March 31, 2021 of approximately $628,000, or 186%, as compared to the prior period was increased marketing activities to ramp sales in line with planned production increases.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative (“G&A”) expenses consist primarily of personnel and facilities costs related to executives, finance, human resources, information technology, as well as legal fees for professional and contract services. G&A expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were approximately $2,421,000 as compared to approximately $1,497,000 for the same period last year, representing an increase of approximately $924,000, or 62%. The primary reasons for the increase in the current period was due to cost associated with the integration of TMW.

Interest Expense

 

Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was approximately $52,000, as compared to $247,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2020. The decrease in interest expense was due to paying off all non-equipment financing in June 2020.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources 

 

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 for more than 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 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.

 

As of March 31, 2021, we had approximately $46,650,000 in cash and cash equivalents, representing an increase in cash and cash equivalents of approximately $7,199,000 from December 31, 2020. In connection with our ATM, we issued and sold 581,782 shares of common stock during the first quarter of 2021, resulting in net proceeds to the Company of approximately $13,500,000, net of offering costs. On April 19, 2021, we disbursed $12,750,000 cash for the purchase of the buildings on Chambers Ave. We anticipate that our current sources of liquidity, including cash and cash equivalents, together with our current projections of cash flow from operating activities, will provide us with more than 12 months of liquidity. The amount and timing of funds that we may raise is undetermined and could vary based on a number of factors, including our ongoing liquidity needs, our current capitalization, as well as access to current and future sources of liquidity.

 

Since inception, we have invested approximately $6,520,000 into tooling and manufacturing capital expenditures for our current FUV production facility. As we ramp up production, we may identify opportunities for reducing cost of goods sold that will require additional capital expenditures.

 

Cash Flows from Operating Activities

 

Our cash flows from operating activities are significantly affected by our cash outflows to support the growth of our business in areas such as R&D, sales and marketing and G&A expenses. Our operating cash flows are also affected by our working capital needs to support personnel related expenditures, accounts payable, inventory purchases and other current assets and liabilities.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, cash used in operating activities was approximately $5,544,000, which included a net loss of approximately $4,743,000, non-cash charge related to depreciation and amortization of approximately $430,000, non-cash charge related to stock-based compensation of approximately $660,000, non-cash income related to income tax benefit of approximately $2,939,000,and changes in accounts receivable, inventory, prepaid inventory, other current assets, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, customer deposits, warranty reserve and deferred revenue of approximately $1,047,000, of which approximately $1,001,000 relates to accounts payable.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

On April 19, 2021, litigation styled David Barnette v. Arcimoto, Inc., Mark Frohnmayer and Douglas Campoli, was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.  The action, in which none of the defendants has yet been served, purports to be a class action on behalf of all those who purchased our common stock between February 14, 2018 and March 22, 2021 and is based on the research report dated March 23, 2021 produced by Bonitas Research, LLC, a short seller of our common stock with the stated intention of driving down the market price of our common stock.  Although the lawsuit is purportedly a class action, no motion to certify a class has been filed at this time. We believe we have substantial defenses to the claims asserted in this lawsuit and intend to vigorously defend this action.
