2024-07-02 04:01 4127

NEW YORK, July 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Fly-E Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: FLYE) ("Fly-E" or the "Company"), an electric vehicle company engaged in designing, installing and selling smart electric motorcycles, electric bikes, electric scooters, and related accessories, today announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2024.

Mr. Zhou (Andy) Ou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Fly-E, remarked, "We are thrilled to present our robust inaugural financial results for fiscal year 2024 following our IPO in June 2024. Our net revenues and gross profit surged by an impressive 47.9% and 58.1%, respectively, for fiscal year 2024. This growth has been accompanied by an improvement in our gross profit margin from 38.1% to 40.7%. Despite the challenges posed by inflation, which has led to higher labor and raw material costs that have impacted profitability and customer demand, our income from operations and net income still rose significantly by 41.0% and 37.5%, respectively. Our EBITDA also saw a significant increase of 43.2%, reaching $3.5 million. All these impressive numbers demonstrate the success of our adept management team in their oversight of our pricing strategies and sales enhancement, supplier diversification, logistics optimization, and continuous upgrading of our product portfolio. These efforts collectively reinforce our brand and position in the market. As a fast-growing EV company with eco-friendliness at our core, we are focused on expanding into new territories through online sales and diversifying our product offerings to meet ever-evolving customer demands and travel scenarios. We will continue to invest in our intelligent management service mobile software, the Fly E-Bike app, to further enhance the customer experience. Looking ahead, we are committed to ongoing innovation and expanding our sales network to create greater long-term growth for our company."

Fiscal Year 2024 Financial Results

Net Revenues

Net revenues were $32.2 million in fiscal year 2024, an increase of 47.9% from $21.8 million in fiscal year 2023. The increase was driven primarily by the increase of the average sale price of EVs by 2.0%, from $941 in fiscal year 2023 to $960 in fiscal year 2024, and the increase in sales volume of EVs by 7,389 units, from 11,263 units in fiscal year 2023 to 18,652 units in fiscal year 2024.

Retail sales revenue was $26.4 million in fiscal year 2024, an increase of 40.0% from $18.8 million in fiscal year 2023. Wholesale revenue was $5.8 million in fiscal year 2024, an increase of 98.5% from $2.9 million in fiscal year 2023.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues was $19.1 million in fiscal year 2024, an increase of 41.6% from $13.5 million in fiscal year 2023. The increase in cost of revenues was primarily attributable to the increase in sales volume mentioned above and increase in logistics costs as the Company sourced and imported more EV parts and accessories outside the United States during the year ended March 31, 2024.

Gross Profit

Gross profit was $13.1 million in fiscal year 2024, an increase of 58.1% from $8.3 million in fiscal year 2023. Gross margin was 40.7% in fiscal year 2024, increased from 38.1% in fiscal year 2023. The increase in gross profit and gross margin was a result of higher average per unit selling price, increasing from $941 in fiscal year 2023 to $960 in fiscal year 2024. These improvements were driven by product upgrades, enhanced sales channels, and an improved brand image in the market.

Total Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses were $9.8 million in fiscal year 2024, an increase of 64.7% compared to $6.0 million in fiscal year 2023. The increase was attributable to the increase in the payroll expenses, rent expenses, meals and entertainment expenses, professional fees, and development expenses as the Company expanded its business.

  • Selling expenses were $5.9 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $3.7 million in fiscal year 2023. Selling expenses primarily consist of payroll expenses, rent and utilities expenses of retail stores and other sales and marketing expenses. Total payroll expenses were $1.6 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $1.4 million in fiscal year 2023. Rent expenses were $2.4 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $1.7 million in fiscal year 2023. Because delivery drivers are the Company's main retail customers, customer referral is the most effective way to market promotion. August through November is the low-season comparing to other months, as such, the Company focuses on client referrals during this period to boost sales. As a result, our marketing referral expense increased to $1.1 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $15,756 in fiscal year 2023. Utilities expenses were $0.16 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $0.13 million in fiscal year 2023. The increase in these expenses was primarily due to the increase in the number of new stores and new employees hired for these new stores in fiscal year 2024.
  • General and administrative expenses were $3.9 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $2.3 million in fiscal year 2023. Meals and entertainment expenses increased to $0.4 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $0.3 million in fiscal year 2023, primarily due to increased meal expenses for employees who worked overtime. Professional fees increased to $1.0 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $0.7 million in fiscal year 2023, primarily attributable to the increase in audit fee, consulting fee, and legal expenses associated with the Company's initial public offering. Payroll expenses increased to $1.1 million in fiscal year 2024 from $0.5 million in fiscal year 2023 primarily due to additional employees hired in operation and accounting departments. Rent expenses increased to $0.2 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $0.1 million in fiscal year 2023 as a result of office space expansion in fiscal year 2024.

Net Income

Net income was $1.9 million in fiscal year 2024, an increase of 37.5% from $1.4 million in fiscal year 2023, mainly attributable to the reasons discussed above.

Basic and Diluted Earnings per Share

Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.09 in fiscal year 2024, increased from $0.06 in fiscal year 2023.

EBITDA

EBITDA was $3.5 million in fiscal year 2024, an increase of 43.2% from $2.4 million in fiscal year 2023.

Financial Condition

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had cash of $1.4 million, increased from $0.4 million as of March 31, 2023. 

Net cash provided by operating activities was $4.3 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $1.8 million in fiscal year 2023.

Net cash used in investing activities was $3.2 million in fiscal year 2024, compared to $0.4 million in fiscal year 2023.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's financial information presented in accordance with the generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (the "U.S. GAAP"), management periodically uses certain "non-GAAP financial measures," as such term is defined under the rules of the SEC, to clarify and enhance understanding of past performance and prospects for the future. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's operating performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are included in or excluded from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For example, non-GAAP measures may exclude the impact of certain items such as acquisitions, divestitures, gains, losses and impairments, or items outside of management's control. Management believes that the following non-GAAP financial measure provides investors and analysts useful insight into its financial position and operating performance. Any non-GAAP measure provided should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative to, the most directly comparable measure determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Further, the calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the calculation of similarly titled financial measures presented by other companies and therefore may not be comparable among companies.

The Company uses EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) to evaluate its operating performance. The Company believes EBITDA provides additional insight into its underlying, ongoing operating performance and facilitates year-to-year comparisons by excluding the earnings impact of interest, tax, depreciation and amortization and that presenting EBITDA is more representative of its operational performance and may be more useful for investors.

The Company reconciles its non-GAAP financial measure to its net income, which is its most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA includes adjustments for provision for income taxes, as applicable, interest income and expense, depreciation, and amortization. EBITDA does not represent and should not be considered an alternative to net income as determined by U.S. GAAP, and its calculations thereof may not be comparable to those reported by other companies. The Company believes EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance and provides useful information to investors because it highlights trends in its business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on U.S. GAAP measures and because it eliminates items that have less bearing on its operating performance. EBITDA, as presented herein, is a supplemental measure of its performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, U.S. GAAP. The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to its U.S. GAAP results in order to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting its business. EBITDA is a measure of operating performance that is not defined by U.S. GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net (loss) income as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
