BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wallbox (NYSE:WBX), a leading provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging and energy management solutions worldwide, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.
Second Quarter 2022 Highlights:
- Generated record revenues of €39.5 million, an increase of 124% compared to the second quarter of 2021
- Achieved gross margins of 41.1%
- Sold almost 64,000 chargers, a 95% increase compared to the second quarter of 2021
- Announced strategic partnership with Nissan to provide charger and installation services to buyers of its new Ariya EV across the U.S.
- Acquired COIL Inc., a leading EV charging installer serving the U.S. market, enabling in-house installation and maintenance solutions for commercial, public and residential charging applications
- Acquired ARES Electronics, an innovative provider of printed circuit boards, expanding Wallbox’s design and manufacturing capabilities while increasing innovation cycle time and improving its supply chain resilience
Enric Asuncion, CEO of Wallbox, said, “It's been a very busy quarter for Wallbox. The team performed very well and once again, exceeded expectations. Revenue grew by 124% on a year-over-year basis, and we’re really pleased with our gross margin of 41.1%. We’ve forged amazing new partnerships, aggressively ramped production of our Supernova DC fast chargers, and acquired two leading companies that are expected to expand our offering, improve our capabilities, and strengthen our competitive position in a fast growing market. While geo-political uncertainty and inflation pose challenges to most businesses, we’re uniquely positioned in a very attractive market that is benefiting from strong secular tailwinds.”
Mr. Asuncion continued, “I’m also very excited to welcome both COIL and ARES Electronics to Wallbox. COIL expands our addressable market and enables a full service offering of hardware, software, and now installation services in North America. COIL is considered by many as the premier installer within the U.S. market and we’re looking forward to helping them expand and scale their business. ARES Electronics has been a trusted provider of innovative printed circuit boards (PCBs) to Wallbox for years, and is expected to bring unique capabilities that further differentiate our technology while improving our vertical integration. In a time where continued supply chain uncertainty persists, bringing this critical component in-house is a key differentiation.
We continue to perform exceptionally well. The demand for EVs around the world appears to be at an inflection point, and a critical mass of shoppers are now considering leaving traditional vehicles behind as governments around the world incentivise the adoption of green transportation. While the long-term trends all point to continued growth, EV manufacturing capacity continues to be in focus. Gaining market share is a key objective at Wallbox, and doing so successfully in an environment where EV manufacturing capacity and deliveries lag consumer demand we see as a testament to our business model and solid execution by the team.”
