UQM Technologies Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2014 Operating Results

May 29, 2014

LONGMONT, Colo.--()--UQM Technologies, Inc. (NYSE MKT: UQM), a developer of alternative energy technologies, today announced operating results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2014. Total revenue for the quarter was $1.0 million compared to $1.7 million for the same quarter last year. Net loss for the fourth quarter was $1.4 million, or $0.04 per common share. This compares to a net loss of $2.3 million, or $0.06 per common share for the same period last year.

For the year ended March 31, 2014, total revenue was $7.05 million, a 2% decrease from the prior year. Net loss was $2.8 million, or $0.07 per common share, compared to $10.7 million, or $0.29 per common share last year. As of March 31, 2014, cash and short-term investments improved to $10.3 million and working capital was $20.0 million versus $4.5 million and $16.0 million last year, respectively.

“Despite a slower than expected fourth quarter due primarily to the delayed start for the 2014 California Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP), our performance for the fiscal year remained solid with increased product sales, higher gross margins and decreased losses,” said Eric R. Ridenour, UQM Technologies’ President and Chief Executive Officer. ”We continue to execute our business development activities in promising regions such as Asia, Europe and North America. In particular, we added two new customers since January in Indonesia and Turkey as we focus on expanding our customer base and worldwide footprint. With a strong balance sheet bolstered by a successful capital raise during the fourth quarter and a lower cost structure in place, we are excited about the opportunities ahead in fiscal 2015.”
