Recent Corporate Highlights:

- Passage of Infrastructure Bill Should Benefit Drone Industry
- Teal Opens new Manufacturing Facility in Salt Lake City, Utah
- Skypersonic awarded contract with NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)
“We made significant corporate progress on several fronts in our fiscal second quarter and saw record revenue that grew 336% year-over-year and 33% quarter-over-quarter. Closing the acquisition of Teal Drones was a critical milestone for the Company and allows for expansion into the military segment,” commented Red Cat CEO Jeff Thompson. “The successful integration of Teal Drones and its recent move into a larger manufacturing facility will be instrumental in our success going forward and allow us to execute on a number of larger Department of Defense contracts we are pursuing in our expanding sales funnel. Moreover, beginning in January, we expect to generate at least $1 million in monthly revenue from drone production at Teal to satisfy existing orders and envision revenue growth accelerating in the first half of calendar 2022 based on our current contracts alone. Any additionally announced contracts would be additive to our current outlook.
“We believe the recently passed federal infrastructure bill, which has $280 billion in earmarked funds to provide inspection services on railways, roads, bridges, and electrical grid maintenance will also provide opportunities for U.S.-based drone manufacturers like Red Cat. Our Skypersonic segment is well-positioned to provide efficient and reliable inspection and surveillance services that are needed in identifying weak links in our country’s infrastructure,” added Mr. Thompson.
“The second quarter represents our sixth consecutive quarter of revenue growth and we are confident in our ability to continue that trend going forward,” stated Joseph Hernon, Chief Financial Officer. “Our increased cash burn during the second quarter primarily related to investments in inventory and manufacturing capacity at Teal Drones which we expect to drive revenue growth during calendar year 2022.”
