Eos Energy Enterprises, Inc. Provides Business Update
Company Announces New Project Order, Incremental Issuance under the SEPA, Expected 2022 Revenue Results, and Initiates 2023 Revenue Outlook
EDISON, N.J.— Eos Energy Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOSE) (“Eos”), a leading provider of safe, scalable, efficient, and sustainable zinc-based energy storage systems, today announced that it expects to record revenue of $17 to $20 million for 2022, which is consistent with previous guidance, with an ending cash balance (excluding restricted cash) of $17 million as of December 31, 2022. Eos will provide further commentary on its fourth quarter performance in connection with the release of its full year and fourth quarter 2022 financial results in early March.
Eos also announces an order for a 47 MWh initial renewables plus storage project with one of the largest operators of energy storage in the US, along with a separate long term agreement providing a framework for up to 4 GWh of energy storage volume over the next 6 years (the “Agreement”). The Agreement contributes 4GWh to the Company’s Pipeline and will be categorized as a letter of intent. With its active Pipeline, as well as the expected launch of the automated next generation Z3 battery production line in the third quarter, the Company currently expects 2023 revenue to be in the range of $30 to $50 million. The gross margins of Z3 are expected to be better than the current Gen 2.3 product, which we believe should result in positive operating cashflow in the second half of 2024. On February 1, 2023, the Company also issued and sold a convertible promissory note with an aggregate principal amount of $5.0 million in a private placement to YA II PN, LTD, an affiliate of Yorkville Advisors, under the Second Supplemental Agreement dated as of December 29, 2022, to the SEPA between the Company and Yorkville.
“We are very excited about our continued growth and the Agreement,” said Joe Mastrangelo, CEO of Eos. “With implementation of the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act taking place this year, we foresee continued market expansion. We continue to progress through the Department of Energy Loan Programs Office’s due diligence process, and we expect that our loan amount could be at least $250 million, if successfully approved.”
Eos is providing this preliminary select results and 2023 outlook in advance of upcoming investor meetings prior to release of earnings.

Backlog. The Company defines backlog as the amount of revenue that we expect to realize from existing agreements with our customers for the sale of our battery energy storage systems and performance of services. The backlog is calculated by adding new orders in the current fiscal period to the backlog as of the end of the prior fiscal period and then subtracting the shipments in the current fiscal period. If the amount of an order is modified or cancelled, we adjust orders in the current period and our backlog accordingly, but do not retroactively adjust previously published backlogs. We believe that the backlog is a useful indicator regarding the future revenue of our Company.
Pipeline. Our pipeline represents projects for which we have submitted technical proposals or nonbinding quotes plus letters of intent (“LOI”) or firm commitments from customers. Pipeline does not include lead generation projects.
Booked Orders. Booked orders are orders where we have legally binding agreements with a Purchase Order or Master Supply Agreement executed by both parties.
