Electric heavy truck maker Nikola said that it produced 75 trucks in the third quarter, and delivered 63 to dealers before quarter-end, generating enough revenue to beat Wall Street’s expectations.
The news was included in Nikola’s third-quarter earnings report, released on Thursday morning. Here are the key numbers, compared with Refinitiv consenus estimates:
- Adjusted loss per share: 28 cents vs. 39 cents expected
- Revenue: $24.2 million vs. $22.1 million expected
Shares of Nikola gained 3% in premarket trading.
CEO Michael Lohscheller said that Nikola made “significant advancements” in building out a hydrogen refueling network ahead of the planned launch of its fuel-cell-powered trucks next year. The company said last month that it’s working to have access to up to 300 metric tons of hydrogen gas per day, as it aims to have 60 refueling stations up and running by 2026.
Nikola said Thursday that it had about $404 million in cash on hand as of the end of the quarter, down from about $587 million as of June 30. The company said that total included $100.5 million raised via an “at-the-market” stock offering.
Nikola filed a registration statement in August that allows it to raise a total of $400 million via sales of new stock from time to time.
