Management Commentary
“In our first report as a public company, we are pleased to announce our fourth quarter and full year 2021 results, highlighted by 43% year-over-year revenue growth and nearly 200% Total Bookings growth in 2021. This was attributable to increased sales to new customers as well as our successful execution of cross-selling and expansion strategies with our existing customers,” said Lou Rassey, Co-founder and CEO of Fast Radius. "The growth demonstrates our strong product offerings and customer demand for new digital manufacturing and supply chain solutions. In 2022, we plan to continue expanding and enhancing the software and solutions on our Cloud Manufacturing Platform, making Fast Radius uniquely positioned to help even more customers design, make, and move parts more effectively and sustainably.”

Subsequent Events
Following the fourth quarter of 2021, Fast Radius received net cash proceeds, after payment of transaction and other expenses, of approximately $73 million as a result of its business combination with ECP Environmental Growth Opportunities Corp. (“ECP”) in February 2022. The results presented in this press release do not give effect to the business combination that was completed in 2022.

Fast Radius plans to seek additional financing in 2022 to extinguish existing debt, pay off deferred transaction expenses, and support its growth objectives. “While we did not raise the capital we expected from the transaction, we are confident in our ability to execute and drive growth, and are focused on further capitalizing the business,” commented Prithvi Gandhi, CFO of Fast Radius.

2022 Outlook
For the full year 2022, Fast Radius expects revenue to be within the range of $27 million to $32 million. Adjusted EBITDA loss is expected to be within the range of $72 million to $65 million.

Restatement of Previously Issued Financial Statements
In the process of preparing fourth quarter 2021 financial statements, management discovered misstatements related to the overstatement of revenue and overstatement and understatement of certain expenses related to the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021. Accordingly, Fast Radius has restated its results for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021. Additional information and a summary of the effect of the restatement on the previously issued financial statements is included in Fast Radius’ Current Report on Form 8-K/A filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release and the accompanying tables contain financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures include EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA excludes special items. Special items are excluded because they are highly variable or unusual, and of a size that may substantially affect Fast Radius’ reported operations for a period.

For the quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2021, special items include the change in fair value of warrant liabilities, the change in fair value of derivative liabilities and transaction costs. These items are excluded because they are highly variable or unusual and of a size that may substantially impact Fast Radius’ reported operations for a period. Additionally, stock-based compensation expense is excluded as a special item to facilitate an evaluation of current and past operating performance and is consistent with how management and Fast Radius’ board of directors assess performance.

Non-GAAP financial measures may enhance an understanding of Fast Radius’ operations and may facilitate an analysis of those operations, particularly in evaluating performance from one period to another. Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures, when used in conjunction with the results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and the reconciliations to corresponding U.S. GAAP financial measures, may enhance an investor’s overall understanding of Fast Radius’ past financial performance and prospects for the future. Accordingly, management uses these non-GAAP measures internally in financial planning. This information should be considered in addition to, and not as substitutes for, information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Fast Radius is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure for the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure used in this presentation without unreasonable effort as certain items that impact this measure, such as the potential impact of future business or asset acquisitions or dispositions, the changes in the fair value of financial instruments or other unusual or infrequently occurring items that may occur in 2022 have not yet occurred, are sometimes out of Fast Radius’ control and cannot be predicted.

Total Bookings
Total Bookings is a metric Fast Radius uses to forecast long-term revenues and to measure the effectiveness of its sales and marketing initiatives. Total Bookings may be useful to an investor because it helps understand the potential growth trajectory of revenues. Total Bookings represents the anticipated contract value of goods and services to be delivered in the future under contracts (or purchase orders) which have been executed as well as contracts under negotiation that are priced, fully scoped, verbally awarded, and expected to be executed shortly. It is anticipated that the majority of goods or services included in Total Bookings for a given fiscal quarter will be earned as revenues within the quarter or subsequent four fiscal quarters, with the specific timing determined by the nature and scope of each individual contract (or purchase order). However, in some cases, larger than average, long-term purchase orders may have a delivery schedule that spans beyond four quarters. Executed purchase orders also may be terminated or delayed at any time by Fast Radius’ customers for reasons beyond its control. To the extent projects are canceled or delayed, the anticipated timing of Fast Radius’ revenues could be materially adversely affected.

The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties more fully described in Item 8.01, of the Form 8-K/A filed by Fast Radius on March 30, 2022, the “Risk Factors” section of the registration statement on Form S-4 and the proxy statement/prospectus relating to the Transaction filed with the SEC on September 3, 2021, as amended, and other documents filed by Fast Radius from time to time with the SEC.

Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, and Fast Radius assumes no obligation and does not intend to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Fast Radius does not give any assurance that it will achieve its expectations.
