Hyzon Motors Inc. (NASDAQ: HYZN), a hydrogen car manufacturer, has published its fourth-quarter and full-year 2021 earnings report. The firm reported great revenue growth, but stock performance has been uneven over the last two days.
HYZN is still in its early stages, with $6 million in revenue last year on a loss of $13.8 million, or $0.07 per diluted share. As a result, the major piece of good news in the Hyzon Motors report was the increase in the order book to $287 million, which is 246 percent more than it was in the last data update in July 2021. Cash and equivalents totaled more than $445 million.
The COVID-19 situation has put a strain on Hyzon’s company, and certain supply chain concerns continue. Hyzon Motors Inc. (HYZN) creates electric and hydrogen (fuel cell) tractor units, buses, and other heavy equipment. So far, this is on a limited scale, and the firm will only begin assembling power plants based on powerful fuel cells in the second half of 2022. HYZN is expected to deliver 300-400 automobiles this year, based on the results of the full current year.
Simultaneously, in North America, 10-15 of the most recent hydrogen trucks will be used in experimental transportation with a number of potential clients. The organization also intends to grow into the European, Australian, and Chinese markets.
As previously stated, Hyzon Motors Inc. (HYZN) offers a high-performance platform that may be utilized to manufacture big vehicles with a range of over 600 kilometers utilizing components from well-known vendors. The utilization of tanks for storing compressed hydrogen at a high pressure of 350 bar is an advantage of Hyzon vehicles.
Pumping hydrogen compressors are more expensive and sophisticated than air compressors, but compressed gas is the most convenient way to utilize hydrogen in transportation.
The message of low revenue and the knowledge that Hyzon Motors Inc. (HYZN) would not begin deliveries until the third quarter of 2022 caused a reduction in quotations immediately following the news. However, HYZN shares were formerly a high-risk, long-term investment destination – stocks of such firms typically account for a tiny portion of the portfolio.
As a result, some investors have maintained an eye on HYZN, particularly because the predicted rise in oil and gas costs has enhanced the chances for hydrogen fuel.
