West Seneca, New York, Feb. 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Worksport Ltd. (Nasdaq:WKSP) (“Worksport” or the “Company”) is pleased to report revenue (unaudited) for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year (Q4 FY2023) ended December 31, 2023 has increased by 2,050% YOY, as well as other key highlights:
Significant revenue increase
Worksport revenues in Q4 2023 increased a remarkable 2,050% year-over-year to US$839,690 from US$39,063 for the same Q4 period in 2022. This followed another momentum-related YOY increase when revenue in Q3 FY2023 increased approximately 2,400%, with revenues rising to US$458,483 when compared with US$18,350 in Q3 FY2022. As a reflection of Worksport’s on-going production ramp-up and projected sales, the Company enjoyed an 83% quarter-to-quarter increase in North American revenues to US$839,716 in Q3 2023, compared with US$458,483 in Q3 2023.
“Management anticipates revenues continuing to multiply into 2024 and beyond,” said Worksport CEO Steven Rossi. “These revenues reflect the continuing strong ramp up of our production lines as we add more and more manufacturing capacity.”
Also reflecting the Company’s momentum, for the 2023 fiscal year, revenues advanced 1,213% to US$1,529,975 from US$116,502 for FY 2022.
“Fiscal year 2024 is expected to be the year we’ve been planning for and anticipating for some time,” Rossi said. “Everyone at the Company is experiencing the palpable excitement of large orders for our ‘Made in the USA’, using domestic and foreign components, designation for the Company’s line of innovative hard tonneau covers, which showcases the Company’s commitment to domestic manufacturing excellence.”
“Going against the grain and conventional wisdom by building a product in the U.S. that we anticipate will set a new standard for affordable and innovative light truck bed covers is a remarkable feat,” added Rossi. “It will take advantage of forthcoming progress in automation, and we believe it’s the first sustainable tonneau cover that uses very little harsh, non-recyclable materials and is over 90% recyclable, unlike competing products that end up in landfill. We are very proud of this achievement, another part of our drive toward sustainability in all product lines.”
- 2,050% YOY FY Q4 revenue advance, follows 2,400% rise in YOY Q3 revenue
- 83% increase from Q3 2023 to Q4 2023 revenue demonstrates current sales momentum
- Large outgoing orders and ongoing sales for light truck covers
- Second production line planned to create Made In USA products at West Seneca, N.Y. manufacturing facility
These large revenue increases were due to initial outgoing orders for the Company’s FC3 tri-fold aluminum light truck covers and on-going SC3 soft cover sales resulting from a long-term supply agreement.
During Q4 2023, the Company completed and launched a second production line in its state-of-the art 220,00 sq. ft. state-of the art manufacturing facility in West Seneca, N.Y. “The Company believes the second production line is a significant advance in sustainable automotive innovation, marking a pivotal moment in the Company’s expansion strategy,” Rossi said.
COR Battery System Moves Closer to Alpha Release
During Q4 2023, the Company proudly announced that the advanced COR battery system will be designed, developed, and assembled in within North America combining domestic and international components. “By assembling the COR system in North America, Worksport has demonstrated its skill in handling the demands of such advanced circuitry, and we are very proud of that achievement.”
Subsequent to the fourth quarter’s end, Worksport announced a strategic partnership with NeuronicWorks Inc., a Toronto-based high-tech custom electronic product development and manufacturing company, to manufacture and assemble the Alpha Release of the COR battery system. The two companies will collaborate in implementing a rigorous testing and quality control process to ensure the highest quality standards for this eagerly anticipated product, the companion to the SOLIS solar light truck tonneau cover.
“We have been experiencing consistent interest for the COR battery system and the SOLIS solar cover,” Rossi said. “We are moving closer and closer to an Alpha release of the COR battery system, where the product will be placed in real-world scenarios, generating invaluable feedback, serving as a cornerstone for additional improvement. This process will bring the Company closer to its ultimate goal — the incredibly exciting official mass market release of the COR system and the SOLIS solar cover. When that does occur, it will truly be a great period, supporting Worksport’s future and demonstrating on how firmly we deliver on our promises to investors, shareholders, and employees.”
Further Advances in Terravis Subsidiary’s Zero-Emission Heat Pump Development
During Q4 2023, Worksport’s subsidiary Terravis Energy experienced a breakthrough in early test results for a working prototype of its Cold Climate, Air Source Residential Heat Pump (CCHP), which produced heating in temperatures in extreme cold as low as -35ºC (-31º F), surpassing current leading Heat Pump systems by as much as 40%. These early test results, obtained in the Company’s Toronto R&D facility’s cutting-edge ‘Arctic Chamber,’ surpassed management’s expectations, prompting Terravis to move to the commercial design stage for this product, after further rigorous testing. The Terravis Heat Pump is anticipated to redefine the boundaries of heating technology without the use of supplemental heating coils, a notable achievement in modern engineering,
“What a remarkable year and an incredible fourth quarter,” Rossi said. “With an 83% increase quarter-to-quarter North American revenues and a remarkable year-over-year Q4 revenue increase of 2,050%, Worksport is on the march, roaring to life, firing on all cylinders, with execution, innovation, and product portfolio expansions in the business-to-business and business-to-consumer sales channels. We again cite the example of a hockey stick, when anticipating how our growth curve will look. Our commitment to providing uncompromising value and growth to our investors has never been stronger. We wish to thank our many employees, partners and shareholders who have contributed to this successful result.”
