July 30, 2015

LONGMONT, Colo.--()--UQM Technologies, Inc. (NYSE MKT: UQM), a developer of alternative energy technologies, today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Total revenue for the quarter was $741,000 compared with $1.0 million in the same quarter last year. Net loss for the first quarter was $2.2 million, or $0.06 per common share. This compares to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.03 per common share for the same period last year. As of June 30, 2015, cash was $5.6 million and working capital was $13.8 million.

“While first quarter revenue was down from same quarter last year, we are beginning to see signs of a recovery with some of our customers in the U.S. electric vehicle market and early traction with our newly acquired fuel cell business,” said Joe Mitchell, COO and interim President and CEO. “The pace and progress of our negotiations with potential Chinese partners has increased, and with production orders from existing and new customers anticipated in the coming quarters, we believe that we are poised to turn a corner as a company in the coming year.”
