ESGFIRE portfolio comment:
Revenues came in at 3 107 000 SEK for the period in comparison to 580 000 SEK for the same period last year. The operating profit came in at – 4 309 000 SEK and some part of this negative result was linked to a depreciation of the old Zbee vehicle. Without this depreciation results would have come in at – 3 354 000 SEK.
There are many positive news in the quarterly report which we will comment on below but the biggest take away we want to reiterate is that management , with current orders are projecting a positive EBITDA result for Q4 of 2023 and that the company, for the time being, will not be conducting any dilutive financing. Management had hopes that options with a strike price of 2,70 SEK would be in the money but delays have for obvious reasons made this expected share price level unachievable.
The management of Clean Motion are notorious experts at bootstrapping financially however the negative side of this and the negative side of not having more funds available is that growth and scale up may be hampered for some time according to the company. ESGFIRE however is of the opinion that in the current high interest rate environment slower growth and achieving profitability is to be preferred from a shareholders perspective.
Other key take aways from the Q3 report below:
– Neom Project
The first 15 vehicles for NEOM are under production and the first have already been delivered. Due to adjustments for the customer the current production output is 3 vehicles per week. The EVIG is highly flexible for adjustments and other manufacturers would of have had a hard time complying with the customer demand of raising the inner roof of EVIG by 150 millimeters.
– Type approval
Clean Motion expects final type approval to be announced by IDIADA during November of 2023.
– Horizon Project GIANTS
The consortium is in the stage of contract negotiation and according to the project leader (Virtual Vehicles in Austria) the contract is expected to be signed at the beginning of December 2023.
The timeline is intact and will begin in January of 2023. Working Chairman Göran Folkesson have had several meetings with other project participants and “expects a flying start”.
We remain positive of our portfolio position in Clean Motion.
