Recent Financial and Operational Highlights:
|●||Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $8.5 million, an increase of 15% compared to $7.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. Gross profit for the fourth quarter 2021 was approximately $0.2 million compared to $1.6 million in the fourth quarter 2020, reflecting higher year end cost adjustments for the 2021 period and accrued losses of $1.0 million related to additional cost of goods sold expenses for two projects which are expected to be completed by the end of Q2 2022.|
|●||Revenue for the twelve months of 2021 was $38.3 million, a 338% increase compared to $8.8 million in revenue for 2020. Gross profit for 2021 was $2.3 million compared to $2.2 million for 2020.|
|●||Cash and cash equivalents totaled $13.0 million at December 31, 2021, including net proceeds of approximately $10.5 million from the equity capital raise that closed in October 2021.|
|●||SG Blocks had 11 projects under contract with a construction backlog that is valued at approximately $3.2 million at December 31, 2021. The Company’s backlog does not include any projects related to recently launched SG Development Corp. and does not include ongoing medical testing.|
|●||SGB DevCorp. had an active residential development pipeline of 4,100 units at December 31, 2021.|
|●||Subsequent to year end, the Company’s SG ECHO subsidiary announced its largest contract to date valued at approximately $6 million. The contract for more than 100 units are scheduled for delivery by the end of Q2 2022.|
Paul Galvin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SG Blocks, commented, “SG Blocks had a great year in 2021 and accomplished many of its goals. This includes generating record consecutive increases in quarterly revenue to reach over $38 million in revenue for the year, building a strong pipeline across our business verticals, signing multiple partnership agreements, purchasing or investing in several development sites, building out our management team with industry experts, and completing a capital raise that enabled us to conclude the year with $13 million in cash on our balance sheet to fund future growth.”
“We ended the year on a high note, reporting fourth quarter revenue of $8.5 million, a 15% increase over the fourth quarter last year. Cost of revenue was higher from additional year end adjustments as we prepare for expected growth across our revenue streams. At year end, SGB DevCorp’s current pipeline is valued at $750 million.”
“Looking ahead, our goals for 2022 include nearing a pipeline of 10,000 residential units inside our development company, launching our first non-COVID-19 testing and services modules, selling the Lago Vista site in Austin and advancing the first SGB DevCorp projects into our factories. We are also planning to offer a minority stake of SGB DevCorp that we believe is worth between $20 - $30 million. Together, the sale of this stake, the sale of the Lago Vista site and cash on the balance sheet potentially totals $40 - $50 million in cash. Additionally, we continue to progress at all of our manufacturing sites, in line with our goal of activating approximately 1 million square feet of Made in the USA manufacturing space over the next 24-30 months. We’ve self-funded many of the development projects and accretive investments inside our pipeline in part with the capital generated from the Covid testing site at LAX. The investments we’ve made over the last two years to build a strong foundation have brought us to this important junction where we are now nearing the startup of manufacturing for the projects in our pipeline and backlog. With an expanding number of projects and investments generating growing revenue in the year ahead, and supported by our strong balance sheet, we expect continued strong revenue growth in 2022 and to generate positive cash flow for the full year,” concluded Mr. Galvin.

Total gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $0.2 million compared to $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, reflecting higher year end cost adjustments and accrued loss chargeback of $1.0 million related to additional cost of goods sold expenses for two projects which are expected to be completed by the end of Q2 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA loss for the fourth quarter of 2021 was approximately $2.4 million compared to a loss of $0.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, the increase is primarily due to the Company’s higher net loss in the quarter.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to its results under GAAP, the Company presents EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for historical periods. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures and have been presented as supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. The Company calculates EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax benefit (expense), depreciation and amortization. It calculates Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before certain non-recurring adjustments such stock-based compensation expense. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented because they are important metrics used by management as one of the means by which it assesses the Company’s financial performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the Company’s industry. These measures, when used in conjunction with related GAAP financial measures, provide investors with an additional financial analytical framework that may be useful in assessing the Company and its results of operations.
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have certain limitations. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), or any other measures of financial performance derived in accordance with GAAP. These measures also should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items for which these non-GAAP measures make adjustments. Additionally, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be liquidity measures because of certain limitations, including, but not limited to: i) they do not reflect the Company’s cash outlays for capital expenditures; They do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital; and Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets are being depreciated and amortized and may have to be replaced in the future, and these non-GAAP measures do not reflect cash requirements for such replacements.
The non-GAAP information should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related notes.
The following is a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to the nearest GAAP measure, net loss:
|Net loss attributable to common stockholders of SG Blocks, Inc.||$||(10,832,674||)||$||(4,692,729||)|
|Addback interest expense||1,254||9,275|
|Addback interest income||(57,266||)||(61,675||)|
|Addback depreciation and amortization||605,405||239,982|
|Addback loss on asset disposal||44,081||1,012|
|Addback litigation expense||570,934||461,613|
|Addback stock-based compensation expense||1,647,391||1,261,215|
|Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP)||$||(8,020,875||)||$||(2,781,307||)|
In evaluating EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we will incur expenses that are the same or similar to some of the adjustments made in our calculations, and our presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to mean that our future results will be unaffected by such adjustment. Management compensates for these limitations by using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental financial metrics and in conjunction with our results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP information should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and related notes.
