Foresight Announces Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

25.11.2022 / 14:00 CET/CEST
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.


Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd., an innovator in automotive vision systems (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX) (“Foresight” or the “Company”), today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2022. Foresight ended the first nine months of 2022 with revenues of $451,000 and with $30.3 million in cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term deposits.

The Company reported a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) net loss of $5.7 million and a non-GAAP net loss of $5.3 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to a GAAP net loss of $3.8 million and a non-GAAP net loss of $3.4 million for the third quarter of 2021, reflecting an increase of 50% and 56%, respectively.

Third Quarter and Recent Corporate Highlights:

  • Foresight Signs Commercial Agreement With SUNWAY-AI for up to $51M: The agreement with SUNWAY-AI Technology Co., Ltd. (“SUNWAY”), a global Chinese manufacturer of components for autonomous and unmanned intelligent vehicles, is a joint program for the development and supply of obstacle detection systems and cloud gateway for driverless airport vehicles, as well as for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for airport ground support vehicles using Foresight’s QuadSight® technology.

  • Eye-Net Signs Commercial Agreement with MaaS and Payment Application Pango: In September 2022, Eye-Net Mobile Ltd. ("Eye-Net") signed a five-year commercial cooperation agreement with Pango Pay & Go Ltd. (“Pango”), a developer of the leading mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) parking, vehicle, road services and payment application to potentially protect the lives of three million road users in Israel. Pango will also serve as Eye-Net’s distributor in Israel.

  • Foresight Collaborates with Leading American EV Manufacturer to Enhance Existing ADAS Systems: In September 2022, Foresight signed a paid joint proof of concept (POC) project with a leading American manufacturer of electric vehicles (EVs). The POC project will consist of the technological evaluation and testing of predefined scenarios, through which Foresight intends to demonstrate its ability to create 3D stereo perception with software only.
  • Foresight Enters MOU with Research Institute in Shandong Province, China: In July 2022, Foresight signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Shandong Industry Research Information and Artificial Intelligence Integration Research Institute Co., Ltd (“Shandong Research Institute”), a professional research institute wholly owned by Shandong Industrial Technology Research Institute, and Beidou Jingzong Technology, a company mainly engaged in the research of high-precision seamless positioning, real-time accurate regeneration of scene targets, and control of scene target position. According to the MOU, the parties will develop an obstacle detection system and all-weather, high-precision positioning for unmanned vehicles based on multi-sensor fusion.

“We believe that the global market continues to validate the strength and innovation of Foresight’s technology offering,” stated Haim Siboni, Foresight’s chief executive officer. “We recently announced the signing of a commercial agreement with SUNWAY in China, which may yield up to $51 million in revenue over a four-year period. This is the most significant accomplishment to date following a consistent pattern of key business developments.”

“Building off of our strategy of establishing joint agreements with leading Tier One manufacturers in multiple global regions, we announced a joint POC project during the third quarter of 2022 with a leading American manufacturer of electric vehicles. We also expanded our presence in the Chinese market through the signing of an MOU with a research institute in Shandong Province. Together with Shandong Research Institute, Foresight will develop an obstacle detection and high-precision positioning system for unmanned vehicles. Following these developments, Foresight will be in a strong position to grow and expand its efforts in some of the world’s most important manufacturing markets.”

“The third quarter of 2022 also saw an important breakthrough for Foresight’s wholly owned subsidiary, Eye-Net. In September 2022, Eye-Net announced the signing of a five-year commercial cooperation agreement with Pango, the developer of Israel’s leading mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) parking, vehicle, road services and payment application. This agreement will see the two companies integrate Eye-Net Protect products into Pango’s app as a software development kit, potentially protecting Pango’s 3 million users by alerting both drivers and other road users about potential oncoming collisions. This cooperation could potentially protect the lives of millions of road users, changing the paradigm of road safety in Israel and demonstrating the potential value of this solution for other regions throughout the world.”

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2022, amounted to $203,000, compared to $40,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The revenues were generated primarily from a successful completion of the second milestone of the POC project with a leading Tier One supplier in the amount of $65,000, and from the successful completion of the second milestone of a POC project with a leading Tier One supplier in the amount of $120,000.

  • Research and development (R&D) expenses, net for the three months ended September 30, 2022, were $3,001,000, compared to $2,428,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The increase is mainly attributed to an increase in payroll and related expenses in the amount of $377,000. R&D expenses in the third quarter of 2022 were offset by the participation from the European Horizon 2020 program in the amount of $75,000.

  • Sales and marketing (S&M) expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2022 were $530,000, compared to $333,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The increase is mainly attributed to an increase in payroll and related expenses in the amount of $130,000 and an increase in exhibitions, conventions, and travel expenses in the amount of $27,000.

  • General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2022, were $877,000, compared to $975,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The decrease is mainly attributed to a decrease in stock-based compensation awarded to employees, directors, and consultants in the amount of $77,000.

  • Finance expenses, net for the three months ended September 30, 2022, were $1,420,000, compared to finance expenses, net of $54,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2021. Finance expenses, net for the three months ended September 30, 2022, consisted of the revaluation of the Company’s investment in Rail Vision Ltd. to its fair value in the amount of $686,000 and by exchange rate differences in the amount of $956,000, offset by interest income and other income in the amount of $222,000.

  • GAAP net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2022, was $5,716,000, or $0.02 per ordinary share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $3,785,000, or $0.01 per ordinary share, for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

  • Non-GAAP net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2022, was $5,283,000, or $0.02 per ordinary share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $3,406,000, or $0.01 per ordinary share, in the same quarter last year. A reconciliation between GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss is provided in the financial statements that are part of this release.

Balance Sheet Highlights

  • Cash, restricted cash, and short-term deposits totaled $30.3 million as of September 30, 2022, compared to $45.7 million as of December 31, 2021.

  • GAAP shareholders’ equity totaled $32.2 million as of September 30, 2022, compared to $48.6 million as of December 31, 2021. The decrease is mainly attributed to the net loss for the period.

  • The Company maintains an at-the-market facility pursuant to the sales agreement it executed in January 22, 2021. The Company has not utilized any sales under such facility since the second quarter of 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Results

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with (GAAP), the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures of net loss for the period that exclude the effect of stock-based compensation expenses. The Company’s management believes the non-GAAP financial information provided in this release is useful to investors’ understanding and assessment of the Company's ongoing operations. Management also uses both GAAP and non-GAAP information in evaluating and operating business internally and as such deemed it important to provide all this information to investors. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. Reconciliations between GAAP measures and non-GAAP measures are provided later in this press release.
