Earnings conference call to be held Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 8:30 a.m. ET AUSTIN, TX, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AYRO, Inc. (Nasdaq: AYRO) (“AYRO” or the “Company”), an engineer and manufacturer of light-duty, urban, and short-haul electric vehicles (EVs), today announced financial results for its fiscal first quarter ended March 31, 2021. First Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights: ●Revenue of $788,869 (+437% YOY) was the sixth consecutive quarter of quarter-over-quarter revenue growth ●Net Loss Attributable to Common Stockholders of ($5.6) million ●Adjusted EBITDA loss of ($3.8) million ●Total Cash of $91.5 million as of March 31, 2021 ●Total debt under $20,000 as of March 31, 2021 Recent Corporate Highlights: ●Announced an agreement with Element Fleet Management (“Element”), the world’s largest pure-play automotive fleet manager, to support the deployment of large fleets of AYRO electric delivery vehicles over the next four years. ●Launched an industry-first electric vaccine vehicle (EVV) with partners Element, Club Car, and Gallery Carts to expand access to COVID-19 vaccination and testing. ●Raised $61.8 million in gross proceeds through two registered direct equity offerings in the first quarter of 2021. ●Backlog of $314,000 as of March 31, 2021. “Our first quarter 2021 financial performance marks the sixth consecutive quarter of quarter-over-quarter revenue growth, which points to accelerated traction and demand for our innovative EV models and customized add-ons. Moreover, with over $90 million in cash on our balance sheet, we are well funded to execute on our business strategy,” commented AYRO Chief Executive Officer Rod Keller. “I continue to believe in the importance of our ecosystem and in the intrinsic value of our strategic partnerships to that ecosystem to drive adoption of electric vehicles beyond the consumer application. Our management team draws on its collective know-how to establish these partnerships, which we understand will be critically important in supporting rapid revenue growth once we launch our next-generation vehicles, namely the 411x light-duty truck and the 311x targeted at the restaurant delivery market. We have partnered with Karma Automotive for the assembly and manufacturing of our 411 trucks and Club Car and Gallery Carts for the distribution of these trucks into multiple end markets. Element Fleet Management has agreed to identify other corporate buyers for both the 411 and 311x vehicles, while also identifying solutions for insuring, maintaining, storing, and reselling our EVs. Thus, we recognize the importance of partnering to leverage multiple channels and supply chains in order to scale revenue once we enter volume production. We believe this to be a key differentiator in the B2B space, positioning us for volume production with an efficient structure. “I am also happy to report that the response to our Electric Vaccine Vehicle, or EVV, from our recent roadshow has been very positive and that a couple of federal agencies are testing the vehicle currently. However, as I’ve said before, the sales cycle is much longer given that government agencies are involved, but we are optimistic regarding possible EVV purchases to be used in a host of applications and environments. The EVV is another testament to the value of our strategic partnerships in that this EV application drew upon the strengths and expertise of not just AYRO, but Gallery Carts, Club Car, and Element, as well. “Regarding production launches, the next generation 311x vehicle is expected to be introduced to the market in late 2021 with production expected to commence in the first half of 2022. The restaurant delivery market represents an immense opportunity, and our ecosystem approach positions us to capitalize on this opportunity upon the launch of the 311x EV. Our dedicated designers are working toward meeting the unique needs of restaurants, and we can’t wait to roll this vehicle out to the restaurant industry. “As always, we are thankful for our shareholder support and look forward to sharing additional progress and corporate milestones with investors. Our goal remains to be the leader in purpose-built EVs,” concluded Mr. Keller.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from operations before interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, amortization of discount on debt, impairment of long-lived assets, stock-based compensation expense and certain non-recurring expenses. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact our non-cash operating expenses, we believe that providing a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash and non-recurring expenses allows for meaningful comparisons between our core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing us with an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our own core business operating results over different periods of time. Adjusted EBITDA may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. We do not consider Adjusted EBITDA to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results. Below is a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 2020 Net Loss $(5,633,833) $(1,795,153)Depreciation and Amortization 124,198 114,275 Stock-based compensation expense 1,699,423 156,458 Amortization of Discount on Debt - 63,744 Interest expense 851 28,436 Adjusted EBITDA $(3,809,361) $(1,432,240)
International patient organizations unite to raise awareness of genetic autoimmune diseaseMISSISSAUGA, Ontario, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Sunday, May 16, iconic buildings all over the world, including those in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Boston, Edmonton, Nashville, and New York City, will be lit up in green to raise awareness for International Celiac Disease Awareness Day. Among the Canadian buildings that will be bathed in green light are the CN Tower (Toronto), Olympic Stadium (Montreal), Prairie Wind at Riverplace (Saskatoon), Calgary Tower (Calgary), Epcor Tower (Edmonton) and BC Place (Vancouver). For the second year in a row, this ground-breaking campaign will unite celiac disease organizations across the globe to raise awareness about this serious, genetic, autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1% of the population, or about 1 in 133 people. International patient groups participating in the Shine A Light initiative on May 16 include: Beyond CeliacCanadian Celiac AssociationCeliac Disease FoundationCoelique QuébecCoeliacUKCoeliac Society of AustraliaGluten Intolerance GroupNational Celiac Association Shine A Light is just one of many initiatives these international groups have planned in May for Celiac Disease Awareness Month. From food drives and informative, educational events for the public, to research awareness campaigns, there’s a way for everyone to get involved in Shine A Light activities. Nationally, the CCA has also joined forces with Oreo, which recently released a new gluten-free version of their classic cookie to their family of products. "Throughout the day, the Canadian Celiac Association will be featuring "GFOreoMoments" on social media showing how people with celiac disease are thriving after diagnosis thanks to the CCA and safe, gluten-free options like Gluten-Free Oreo," says National Executive Director, Melissa Secord. "Canadians will have a chance to learn the challenges of their often misunderstood disease and how they can help keep them safe." About Celiac Disease Celiac disease patients experience a variety of symptoms that can include chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight loss, anemia, infertility, and, for children, physical development issues if they continuously eat gluten. The wide range of symptoms makes the path to diagnosis a long and arduous one—up to nine years on average from first appearance of symptoms—equating to years of needless suffering.1 There is no cure for celiac disease and currently the only treatment is strict adherence to a gluten-free diet. Left undiagnosed or untreated, celiac disease can have serious long-term consequences for a patient’s health, such as cancers of the gut, osteopenia, and neurological complications.

Chat platform Discord said on Thursday it will start to test paid tickets for audio events, the first feature where creators can make money from the site, and will launch a tool next month to help users more easily find live audio channels.
