Sidus Space Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results and Business Update

Revenue Increased 695% in Second Quarter 2022 from Second Quarter 2021

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.–(Sidus Space PR)– Sidus Space, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIDU), a Space-as-a-Service satellite company focused on commercial satellite design, manufacture, launch, and data collection, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 and provided company business updates.

Q2 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue increased to $1.85 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $232,000 in the comparable period of 2021, an increase of 695%.
    • This increase is primarily attributed to increased customer confidence as a result of previous deliveries and increased contract flow driven by sales efforts from an expanded sales team.
  • Gross Profit increased to $347,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from a loss of $56,000 in the comparable period of 2021, attributable to an increase in revenue, a decrease in labor intensive contracts and an increase in our higher margin Satellite-as-a-Service business line.
  • Operating Expenses increased to $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 compared to $418,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2021, resulting from expansion of our staff and facilities, as well as increased insurance, investor relations, legal and accounting fees that are associated with being a publicly traded company.
  • During the quarter, the Company’s principal shareholder forgave approximately $1.624 million of debt, consisting of the entire unpaid principal amount and accrued interest owed by the Company to the shareholder.

Capital Structure

  • As of June 30, 2022, the Company had $6.8 million in cash.
  • On August 10, 2022, to supplement the Company’s cash position and enable the Company’s growth, the Company entered into a Common Stock Purchase Agreement that will enable the Company to raise up to $30 million of additional equity as funding needs arise.

Operational Highlights

The Company continues to take meaningful steps toward the inaugural launch of its LizzieSatTM Constellation:

  • The Company announced that it has selected AWS to provide cloud storage of mission critical operation and customer data.
  • In June, the Company conducted its Lizzie Sat Phase I Safety Review with NASA.
  • The Company has selected L3Harris Technologies InControl™ software for command and control and mission planning for LizzieSat™ Constellation.
  • Subsequent to the close of the quarter, the Company was informed by NASA that its launch date has been moved to Q1 2023. There is no expected impact to production or 2022 revenue as a result of this change.

The Company continues to build key relationships with customers in its mission-critical hardware manufacturing business:

  • The Company increased its scope of work with Teledyne Marine, whereby Sidus Space will now manufacture components for Teledyne Marine’s Massachusetts facility in addition to continuing to supply components to Teledyne Marine’s facilities in Texas and Florida, which should increase Sidus’ overall Teledyne revenue.
  • Sidus has completed the fabrication of the first set of hardware in support of NASA’s Artemis Program and their Space Launch System (SLS) Manned Vehicle. Sidus is responsible for the build, qualification, and testing of Umbilical Quick Disconnects for the Environmental Control System (ECS) on the Universal Stage Adapter (USA) for NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS).
  • Sidus is a partner on the team that won a $3.5 billion contract for the Exploration Extravehicular Activity Services, or xEVAS Program, which the team will, among other responsibilities, design, develop, and produce an integrated Extravehicular Activity (EVA) capability that includes a new Spacesuit and ancillary hardware.

Carol Craig, Founder and CEO of Sidus Space, said, “In the second quarter, we continued to win contracts, customers and purchase orders while expanding existing partnerships, marking significant progress implementing our Space-as-a-Service strategy. Our manufacturing division continues to expand relationships throughout the industry, with Teledyne being just one example of how we have become an integral supplier to many space hardware manufacturers. We continue to secure new design and production opportunities, with recent successes including a role on one of the teams that won NASA’s Exploration Extravehicular Activity (xEVAS) services contract, which includes the design, development, production, and hardware processing for a new spacesuit and ancillary hardware tools. At the same time, we are making progress in preparing for the launch of LizzieSatTM, with the successful completion of a Phase I Safety Review and key partner selections. There is a significant opportunity ahead of us and our comprehensive vertically-integrated offerings position us well to capture a significant portion of the overall total addressable market of the Space ecosystem. We are excited about what lies ahead for Sidus and I am proud of our team’s ability to meet the rapidly evolving needs for commercial space capabilities. We are confident we are taking the necessary steps on our path toward profitability and creating value for our shareholders.”
