Canoo’s 4Q Loss Improves On Electric Vehicles Strength

Shares of Canoo fell 2.5% in Monday’s extended trading session despite the electric vehicles manufacturer reporting better-than-expected 4Q bottom-line results.

Canoo’s (GOEV) 4Q loss of $0.08 per share improved from the year-ago period’s loss of $0.57 per share. Furthermore, it compared favorably to analysts’ expectations of a loss of $0.14 per share. However, an adjusted EBITDA loss of $42.5 million was wider than the year-ago period’s loss of $35.3 million.

The company’s executive chairman Tony Aquila said, “Globally there are approximately 1.5 billion light vehicles and we believe that 80% of those will be replaced by EVs [electric vehicles] over the next 4 to 5 car generations.” He added, “We believe we are the first OEM [Original equipment manufacturer] that is looking at the full lifecycle of the vehicle and building in multiple revenue touchpoints.”

During the quarter, the company unveiled its all-electric, multi-purpose delivery vehicle at a starting price of about $33,000. Additionally, the company revealed its all-electric pickup, which will be delivered by 2023. (See Canoo stock analysis on TipRanks)
