Recent Operating Highlights:

The following operational updates occurred subsequent to March 31, 2022:

  • On April 21, 2022, Cyngn announced the official launch of DriveMod Kit, a fully-equipped turnkey autonomous vehicle ("AV") hardware integration module for which Cyngn filed a patent in February 2022. DriveMod Kit’s inaugural manufacturing run started coming off the assembly line in the first half of April 2022.

  • On April 29, 2022, Cyngn closed a private placement pursuant to a securities purchase agreement entered into on April 28, 2022, with certain institutional and accredited investors for aggregate net proceeds of approximately $18.1 million, after deducting underwriting fees and other offering expenses.

  • On May 4, 2022, Cyngn announced the launch of Infinitracker, a global GPS asset-tracking device and Internet of things ("IoT") data collection gateway. The Infinitracker product aligns with the Company’s mission to deliver new data insights in industrial domains such as manufacturing, fulfillment, logistics, construction, and mining.

Lior Tal, Cyngn’s CEO, stated, "The first few months of 2022 have been incredibly exciting for Cyngn. We announced both new products and new partnerships, all of which are key milestones toward our goal of delivering scaled deployments in 2024. In early April, we launched production of DriveMod Kit, which we believe puts us in a position to lead the rapid adoption of autonomy across a wide range of new and retrofit industrial and commercial vehicles. DriveMod Kit contains all the advanced sensors and hardware components needed for AV technology integration, allowing for quick and easy installation.

"We also launched Infinitracker last week. This product is an excellent addition to our industrial vehicle autonomy and data analytics suite, enabling a superior level of asset visibility with its IoT gateway capabilities and 15-year battery life. We will be offering Infinitracker through account-based enterprise sales and channel partners that will act as value-add resellers. There will also be an option to place direct orders though our website. We are pleased to have received our first bookings with strategic customers and resellers.

"As we continue to invest in our people and building out our team, we have expanded our Silicon Valley offices to accommodate our growing operations. We continue to recruit additional engineering resources and, with the completion of the recent financing, are well capitalized and in a strong position to execute on our strategic growth objectives in the coming quarters. In the second half of 2022, we anticipate new partnerships, additional deployments and other encouraging developments including the start of realizing some nominal revenue, all of which will help to support the positive momentum that we’ve established thus far in the year."

GAAP Financial Review

First Quarter Ended March 31, 2022:

  • Total operating expenses were $3.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, compared to $1.5 million in the prior-year quarter. The increase was primarily due to a $1.5 million increase in general and administrative ("G&A") expense related to significantly increased non-cash, stock-based compensation expense, costs incurred for additional personnel and professional services necessary to support becoming a public company and for additional occupancy costs following the renewal of the Company’s lease that expanded the square footage of its Menlo Park offices. R&D expense for the period also increased by $0.7 million, which was attributable to significantly increased non-cash, stock-based compensation expense, costs incurred for additional engineering staff and contractors, allocated occupancy costs and R&D-related travel costs. The Company expects R&D costs to continue to increase as it continues to restore the appropriate level of engineering and other personnel to support its R&D efforts.

  • Net loss was $3.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, compared to net loss of $1.5 million in the prior-year quarter. Net loss per share on a basic and diluted basis was $0.14 based on approximately 26.9 million weighted average shares for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, compared to net loss per share on a basic and diluted basis of $1.63 based on approximately 1.0 million weighted average shares in the prior-year quarter.

Balance Sheet Highlights:

As of March 31, 2022, Cyngn’s cash and cash equivalents were $18.5 million, working capital was $18.2 million, and total stockholders’ equity was $19.0 million; compared to cash and cash equivalents of $21.9 million, working capital of $22.1 million and total stockholders’ equity of $22.2 million, respectively, as of December 31, 2021.

Including the net proceeds from the recently closed private placement of $18.1 million, pro forma cash and cash equivalents, working capital and total stockholders’ equity as of March 31, 2022, are $36.6 million, $36.3 million and $37.2 million, respectively.
