21 - ECOtality Reports Record First Quarter 2012 Results
Inc. (NASDAQ: ECTY), a leader in clean electric transportation and storage
technologies, reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31,
2012 Summary of Financial Results
in the first quarter of 2012 increased 215% to a record $13.7 million, as
compared to $4.3 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase in revenue
was largely attributed to the continued roll out of network infrastructure for
the EV Project and by a Blink® network licensing agreement. The EV Project is a
public-private partnership with the Department of Energy that seeks to develop,
implement and study techniques for optimizing the deployment of a commercially
viable EV charging infrastructure.
first quarter of 2012 represented the company’s first profitable quarter, which
was driven primarily by EV Project revenue and a Blink® network licensing
agreement. Net income in the first quarter of 2012 was $1.2 million or $0.04
per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $6.8 million or
$(0.51) per basic and diluted share in the same year-ago quarter.
cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2012 totaled $4.5
million, as compared to $10.2 million at December 31, 2011. The decrease in
cash was primarily attributed to the rapid increase in both the production and
installation of Blink® DC Fast Chargers required for the EV Project.
2012 Operational Highlights
Approximately 1,100 Blink® chargers were installed during the quarter, bringing
the total number of charging stations to approximately 6,700, and maintaining
the Blink® network as the largest connected electric vehicle (EV) charging
network in the world.
The Blink® network has delivered in total more than 5,000 megawatt-hours to EV
drivers, who generated nearly 23 million miles of data for the EV Project.
Signed a $5 million licensing agreement with ABB Technology Ventures Ltd to
utilize the Blink® electric vehicle charging network.
ABB made a $5 million follow-on investment in the form of a convertible note
due in 2015.

is developing a breakthrough, low cost technology to make renewable hydrogen
using sunlight and any source of water, including seawater and wastewater.
Unlike hydrocarbon fuels, such as oil, coal and natural gas, where carbon
dioxide and other contaminants are released into the atmosphere when used,
hydrogen fuel usage produces pure water as the only byproduct. By optimizing
the science of water electrolysis at the nano-level, our low cost nanoparticles
mimic photosynthesis to efficiently use sunlight to separate hydrogen from
water, to produce environmentally friendly renewable hydrogen. Using our low
cost method to produce renewable hydrogen, we intend to enable a world of distributed
hydrogen production for renewable electricity and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
22 - HyperSolar Completes Proof of Concept Prototype that Successfully Produces
combines its unique, low-cost polymer coating with a small-scale solar device
to form a self-contained particle that separates hydrogen from water using only
the power of the Sun
Inc. (OTCBB: HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce
renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, today announced that
its first proof of concept prototype is successfully producing renewable
hydrogen. By integrating its unique, low-cost polymer coating with a
small-scale solar device to form a self-contained particle, the company has
proven the scientific validity of its breakthrough technology.
our self-contained particle in a low cost plastic bag, we have successfully
demonstrated our ability to mimic photosynthesis to produce renewable hydrogen
from virtually any source of water using the power of the Sun,” commented Tim
Young, CEO of HyperSolar. “Unlike approaches taken by others in the past, our
small scale solar devices actually float in the water. Our next step is to
complete the development of our nanoparticles, extremely small solar devices,
optimized to significantly reduce the cost of separating hydrogen from water.”
video showing the proof of concept prototype is available at the company’s
website, www.hypersolar.com. It features the self-contained particle floating
in a common baggy filled with wastewater from a pulp and paper mill. The video
clearly shows hydrogen bubbles being generated in the small baggy. The
company’s next prototype will feature nanoparticles, which can be mass-produced
at a low cost and can float freely in large scale bag systems to generate large
quantities of renewable hydrogen, the cleanest and greenest of all fuels, using
only sunlight and water.
concluded, “We believe we are on the right track to produce the lowest cost renewable
hydrogen. Most hydrogen used today is not renewable and not very clean because
it is produced from finite hydrocarbon sources, such as oil, coal and natural
gas. Renewable hydrogen produced from nearly infinite sources of water and
sunlight, is clean and carbon free. The worldwide impact of using renewable
hydrogen to generate electricity and power fuel cell vehicles would be
recently entered into a yearlong sponsored research agreement with the
University of California, Santa Barbara to help accelerate the development
process and assure that the key milestones are reached.
