EV Charging Company ChargePoint Posts 93% Revenue Increase YoY in Q4

The company’s loss increased to $78 million during the quarter


Electric vehicle (EV) charging solution provider ChargePoint’s net loss widened to $78 million for the fourth quarter (Q4) of the financial year (FY) 2022 from $60 million in Q4 2021.

The company attributed the higher loss to a higher stock-based compensation expense in the current quarter.

ChargePoint’s total operating expenses increased by 15% year-over-year (YoY) to $111.2 million for the October-December quarter.

The company posted a 93% YoY increase in its revenue at $152.8 million, primarily driven by higher sales of network charging systems worth $122.3 million.

The company said Q4 billings percentages were 69% for commercial, 19% for fleet, 11 % for residential, and others at less than 1%. From a geographic perspective, revenue from North America was 86%, and 14% from Europe. In the fourth quarter, Europe delivered $22 million in revenue, growing 129% YoY.

President and CEO of ChargePoint Pasquale Romano said, “ChargePoint delivered its largest sequential revenue growth to date and another record quarter, although below our guidance range as supply challenges for our DC solutions and quarter-end shipment challenges at this growth rate persisted. We continued to extend our technology and market leadership position across North America and Europe this year while driving 94% year-over-year growth and delivering improving gross margin and better operating expense leverage as we progress toward profitability.”

ChargePoint’s net loss for 2022 increased to $344.4 million from $132.2 million for FY 2021.
