- In the first months of 2022, ADS-TEC Energy secured orders exceeding more than EUR 60 million.
- ADS-TEC Energy has increased the total order volume to more than EUR 175 million year to date.
- Battery-buffered, ultra-fast charging stations of ADS-TEC Energy and stationary storage systems for commercial and industrial applications are the focus of order intake
ADS-TEC Energy (NASDAQ: ADSE) today announced that the company has significantly increased the order volume for its products in fiscal year 2022 since the publication of the first financial forecast on April 28, 2022. The orders primarily involve the company’s battery-buffered, ultra-fast EV charging systems, but also include stationary storage systems for commercial and industrial applications. For contractual reasons, specific customers and projects cannot be publicly announced at this time.
The current problems in the supply chain and the very long delivery times for products already ordered will mean that sales in 2022, as already announced and planned, will be recorded during the last months of the year. The previous sales forecasts for 2022 will not be affected by the increased order backlog, as sales from the new orders are planned for 2023.
"My team and I are very pleased with the massive increase in orders, especially in these extremely uncertain times. We see this customer trust as confirmation of our strategy and hard work," said Thomas Speidel, CEO, ADS-TEC Energy. " Our production is already prepared for the additional volume. Together with our strong suppliers and partners, we are confident that we will be able to ensure the availability of important materials for production. Here, ADS-TEC Energy's ability to master all stages of development is a real differentiator. Nevertheless, inflation, scarcity of resources and materials will continue to occupy us and the entire industry; normality is not in sight."
