UQM Technologies Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2013 Operating Results

LONGMONT, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- UQM Technologies, Inc. (NYSE MKT:UQM), a developer and manufacturer of power-dense, high-efficiency electric motors, generators and power electronic controllers, today announced operating results for the quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2013.

Revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2013 decreased to $1.7 million compared to $3.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, reflecting the lack of shipments to CODA. Excluding CODA revenue, adjusted total revenue for the fourth quarter was $1.6 million compared to $1.8 million for the comparable quarter last fiscal year. Net loss for the fourth quarter was $2.3 million or $0.06 per common share versus a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.04 per common share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Fourth quarter results this year included a charge of $1.1 million or $0.03 per common share for estimated CODA-related contract settlement costs.


For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013, total revenue decreased to $7.2 million compared to $10.1 million in fiscal 2012. Excluding CODA revenue, adjusted total revenue increased 20 percent to $7.0 million in fiscal 2013 compared to $5.8 million last fiscal year. Net loss for fiscal 2013 was $10.7 million, or $0.29 per common share, and included charges related to the termination of the CODA program totaling $4.9 million, or $0.13 per common share. This compares with a net loss of $4.9 million or $0.14 per common share for fiscal 2012.

"During the year, we continued our expansion into the commercial truck and bus EV markets, signing multi-year supply agreements with Proterra and Boulder EV and increasing shipments to Electric Vehicles International," said Eric R. Ridenour, UQM Technologies' President and CEO. "These ongoing relationships demonstrate the strength and differentiation of our product line, and have enabled us to diversify our customer base and grow our revenues, minimizing the impact of CODA's bankruptcy. The progress we are making with potential customers in China, coupled with our ongoing expense management and cash conservation, position us well for fiscal year 2014 and beyond."

Subsequent to the end of the fiscal year, the Company completed a contract to sell its former facility in Frederick, Colorado for $1.65 million. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.
