Hyzon’s fuel-cell electric vehicles (pictured) will position the company to be a key player in the energy transition.

"2021 was a transformative year for Hyzon. We successfully completed our business combination in July and worked steadfastly to position Hyzon to be a key player in the energy transition, as the world increasingly turns to hydrogen to address climate and energy challenges. In spite of widely recognized disruptions throughout the global supply chain, we delivered 87 fuel cell electric vehicles, with heavy and medium duty trucks now being validated in real world operations. Furthermore, our state-of-the-art fuel cell assembly facility in the United States is on track and will include fully integrated production capabilities of our advanced proprietary MEA - this is where the magic really happens in fuel cells and is a major determinant of cost structure in fuel cell trucks," said Hyzon Chief Executive Officer Craig Knight.

"We continued to build and foster a clean hydrogen supply ecosystem with strategic partnerships. Our team demonstrated agility and commitment to exceed previously announced delivery targets. Hyzon is at the forefront of the Hydrogen Economy with our leading proprietary fuel cell technology, first mover position in heavy vehicles in real world settings, and our low-cost, sustainable clean hydrogen supply strategy. Hyzon is well positioned to be 'The Key to the Hydrogen Economy'," concluded Mr. Knight.

2022 Business Outlook

  • Expect to deliver 300-400 vehicles with deliveries heavily weighted towards the back half of the year as the industry navigates supply chain challenges and global uncertainties

  • Expect to commence assembling vehicles using our flagship, made in the USA, high power-density fuel cells during the second half of 2022

  • In North America, we expect to have 10-15 Hyzon fuel cell demonstration trucks deployed to multiple trial customers by year end

  • In Europe, Australia, and China, expect to ramp up deliveries and streamline assembly processes to meet increasing demand

  • Anticipate a Hyzon / Raven gas-to-hydrogen hub and waste-to-hydrogen hub online by year end

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement its consolidated balance sheet and statement of operations and comprehensive loss, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Hyzon Motors Inc. reports EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA which are non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA is determined by taking net loss and adding interest, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is determined by taking EBITDA and adding non-cash stock-based compensation expense, change in fair value of private placement warrant liability, change in fair value of earnout liability and other special items determined by management. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, viewed in addition to and not in lieu of our reported GAAP results, provides useful information to investors by providing a more focused measure of operating results, enhances the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. The non-GAAP measures presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures, see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" below for important information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of present or historical fact included in this press release, are forward-looking statements. When used in this press release, the words "could," "should," "will," "may," "believe," "anticipate," "intend," "estimate," "expect," "project," the negative of such terms and other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain such identifying words. These forward-looking statements, including statements about our business outlook, expected production and deliveries of vehicles, anticipated future contracts and performance under existing contracts, and development of new facilities and partnerships, are based on management's current expectations and assumptions about future events and are based on currently available information as to the outcome and timing of future events. Except as otherwise required by applicable law, Hyzon disclaims any duty to update any forward -looking statements, all of which are expressly qualified by the statements in this section, to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this press release. Hyzon cautions you that these forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the control of Hyzon, including risks and uncertainties described in the "Risk Factors" section of Hyzon's definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on June 21, 2021, our Registration Statement on Form S-1 filed with the SEC on July 30, 2021, and other documents filed by Hyzon from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements, such as risks related to the ability to convert non-binding memoranda of understanding into binding orders or sales (including because of the current or prospective financial resources of the counterparties to Hyzon's non-binding memoranda of understanding and letters of intent), the ability to identify additional potential customers and convert them to paying customers, or the ability to manufacture new vehicles, including as a result of disruptions to the supply chain. Hyzon gives no assurance that Hyzon will achieve its expectations.
