("Pod Point" or "the Group")

 

Updated 2023 guidance

 

Following the appointment of Andy Palmer as interim CEO on 6 July 2023, a detailed review of the Group's operations is being undertaken.  While this work is ongoing, it has become clear that the outcome for the financial year ending 31 December 2023 will be materially different from the current guidance, with lower revenue and a larger adjusted EBITDA loss.

 

The market has remained volatile and uncertain, with particular weakness in the private BEV market. The Group has seen shortcomings in product offer, and delays in product and app launches that have impacted revenues.  Some of our sales channels are also seeing slower conversion to revenue.  These themes are expected to impact our performance in the second half.

 

Consequently, the Group is updating revenue guidance for 2023 to at least £60m.  Adjusted EBITDA loss for 2023 is now expected to be no greater than £17m.  The updated guidance includes the impact of lower revenues, and an expected £5m of costs related to transformation plan initiatives and growth investments identified as part of the ongoing strategy review and non-cash charges.

 

Our balance sheet remains in a strong position with net cash as at 30 June 2023 of £58.8m.

 

Alongside our interim results to be released on 31 July, we will provide further details on our transformation plan to improve operational and financial performance, the actions required to urgently address priorities and how Pod Point is positioning itself for long term growth.
