FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Enovix Corporation (“Enovix”) (Nasdaq: ENVX), the leader in the design and manufacture of next generation 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion batteries, today announced key customer-related milestones in the second quarter 2022, including shipping commercial cells and reporting first revenue.
“I’m proud to announce that we met the ambitious goals we set over a year ago when we announced our plans to become a publicly traded company, thanks to the culmination of more than 14 years of hard work by our talented team,” said Harrold Rust, Co-Founder, President and CEO of Enovix. “The world needs a better battery to power the technologies of the future and we believe our technology is well suited to meet that demand because our proprietary battery architecture enables a step-change increase in energy density without compromising safety.”
The commercialization of the company’s next-gen battery is driving accelerated engagements with the company’s Strategic Accounts (greater than $200 billion market capitalization). This included the completion of technology qualification with three of these accounts. Also in the second quarter, Enovix added 12 new accounts to its $1.5 billion revenue funnel bringing the total number of accounts to more than 75, nearly double the number at the end of Q2 2021. Active designs and design wins in the company’s funnel increased to $414 million in Q2 2022 from $371 million in Q1 2022. The total number of design wins increased to eight (up from five at the end of Q2 2021).
“Our customers have told us that they are leveraging our batteries to develop remarkable new form factors for their mobile products and to enable important new features previously constrained by the limits of conventional battery power,” said Cam Dales, GM and Chief Commercial Officer at Enovix. “We believe the next generation of mobile computing platforms cannot reach their full potential without a step change improvement in battery technology like what Enovix is bringing to market today. While there is still much work ahead of us to grow the business and reach our ultimate production goals, we are extremely optimistic about our ability to scale our manufacturing in order to make the products that our customers need to win in their own competitive markets.”
During the second quarter, Enovix shipped cells to 10 OEMs and four distributors globally from the Fab-1 production line. These cells will be used for a combination of prototype development, product qualification and field trials for end products. Enovix also completed a development program and delivered its first integrated battery packs with multiple cells and electronic power control circuitry, which is designed to provide a complete solution for customers, simplifying their manufacturing process and shortening their time-to-market.
Finally, during the quarter Enovix received UN38.3 certification for its wearable cell (EX01-351829) from a third-party laboratory, Energy Assurance, LLC. UN38.3 is the United Nations standard for safe transportation of Lithium-ion batteries and is only granted to products that meet strict international safety and abuse tolerance standards through a series of certified test protocols. Previously, the company had self-certified its cells through its own internal test lab.
Enovix is the leader in advanced silicon-anode lithium-ion battery development and production. The company’s proprietary 3D cell architecture increases energy density and maintains high cycle life. Enovix is building an advanced silicon-anode lithium-ion battery production facility in the U.S. for volume production. The company’s initial goal is to provide designers of category-leading mobile devices with a high-energy battery so they can create more innovative and effective portable products. Enovix is also developing its 3D cell technology and production process for the electric vehicle and energy storage markets to help enable widespread utilization of renewable energy.
