Cyngn Reports Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results


Quarterly revenue of $0.6 million following successful achievement of milestones on autonomous vehicle development contracts


MENLO PARK, Calif., August 9, 2023 — Cyngn Inc. (the “Company” or “Cyngn”) (NASDAQ: CYN), a developer of AI-powered autonomous driving software solutions for industrial applications, today announced its financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended June 30, 2023.


Recent Operating Announcements:


        Pre-order for 100 autonomous DriveMod Forklifts from Arauco - a global supplier of sustainable forestry products, paper pulp, and engineered wood to the furniture and construction industries

      Latest stockchaser deployment, with a Fortune 100 heavy equipment manufacturer

        Partnership with Motrec to launch Cyngn’s latest autonomous vehicle type

        Partnership with BYD on the autonomous forklift development project


“During the past few months, we have made incredible progress on our commercial targets,” said Lior Tal, Cyngn’s CEO. “In addition to the order from Arauco for our autonomous forklifts that we announced yesterday morning, we also announced our largest stockchaser customer to-date and a new vehicle type with the DriveMod enabled Motrec tow tractor. These announcements are a strong indication of the significant market opportunity for industrial vehicle autonomy and the excellent product market fit for Cyngn’s solutions. Our focus for the second half of 2023 will be to continue securing additional commercial deployments.


“In the second quarter, we also achieved new milestones on our funded development projects to expand our Enterprise Autonomy Suite to additional vehicles. Cyngn’s flexible, vehicle agnostic, autonomy solutions have the potential to transform the use of industrial vehicles worldwide and we are extremely encouraged with the inbound interest in our products and solutions.”


Financial Review

Second Quarter ending June 30, 2023:

        Second quarter revenue was $0.6 million compared to no revenues in the second quarter of 2022. Substantially all of this revenue was from the two multi-phase non-recurring engineering (“NRE”) contracts related to expanding Cyngn’s autonomy solutions to forklifts and heavy industry vehicles.

        Total costs and expenses in the second quarter were $7.0 million, an increase from $4.6 million in the June quarter of 2022. This increase was primarily due to increases in cost of revenue, additional marketing and advertising expenses, higher legal and professional fees and the increase in headcount from 59 employees in the second quarter of 2022 to 75 employees today.

        Net loss for the second quarter was $6.4 million compared to $4.6 million in the corresponding quarter of 2022. Second quarter 2023 net loss per share was $0.19, based on a weighted average of approximately 33.8 million basic and diluted shares outstanding in the quarter. This compares to a basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.15 in the second quarter of 2022, against a weighted average of approximately 30.7 million basic and diluted shares outstanding.


Balance sheet highlights:

Cyngn’s unrestricted cash and short-term investments at the end of the June quarter of 2023 totaled $12.1 million. At the end of the same period, working capital was $11.6 million and total stockholders’ equity was $13.9 million, as compared to year-end working capital of $22.4 million and total stockholders‘ equity of $24.1 million respectively in 2022.
