Cell Impact Q3 2023: Low demand but continued high interest
Cell Impact AB (Nasdaq First North GM: CI) reports the following summary for the third quarter 2023.
The third quarter was a weak period in line with the expectations that Cell Impact communicated after the second quarter. Net sales during the third quarter of the year amounted to SEK 9.3 million (17.0) and the operating loss was SEK -23.7 million (-28.6).
As communicated after the second quarter, there is lower demand for flow plates in particular. To adapt the company's organization to these new conditions, Cell Impact implemented a cost reduction program during the third quarter that will take full effect at the end of 2023.
In October, we received a new order worth SEK 22.0 million from Plug Power for ongoing production of flow plates and other deliveries during the first half of 2024. This will provide a good foundation for production in 2024.
Several ongoing application projects are nearing order status for test tools. Test tools are an important part of application work as a first step toward producing the full-scale tools needed to manufacture flow plates. These projects are an opportunity broaden our customer base and promote long-term growth in both fuel cells and electrolyzers.
In accordance with what we communicated earlier, Cell Impact needs additional capital to continue financing its operations in 2023. The company has taken measures to acquire financing and has convened an Extraordinary General Meeting on November 3, 2023 to resolve on providing additional authorization for the Board and amending the company's Articles of Association regarding share capital and the minimum and maximum number of shares.
