Management Commentary

“In the second quarter, we grew revenue by 49% compared to the year ago period, while also taking significant measures to reduce our operating expenses,” said Lou Rassey, Co-Founder and CEO of Fast Radius.

“We have made progress in advancing our software tools and the quality of the customer experience in our Cloud Manufacturing Platform. Now with over 20,000 customers signed up and having launched Studio earlier this year, we continue to add features to help manufacturers better design, make, and manage new parts and supply chains. Additionally, we have onboarded a significant majority of our suppliers to our new Partner Portal. This is an important step in supporting the growth of our software-driven marketplace. We believe that creating a seamless, digital-driven experience for our customers and suppliers will help to shorten lead times, improve quality, and help us to expand our menu of manufacturing capabilities over time.”

“While we continue to make progress on our strategic priorities, the current macroeconomic headwinds such as rising inflation and global supply chain shortages continue to impact our business and the industry more broadly. As we move into the second half of 2022, we remain focused on the balance between controlling our costs while minimizing disruptions to our operational execution.”

2022 Revised Outlook
For the full year 2022, Fast Radius is decreasing its revenue guidance and expects revenue to be within the range of $27 million to $30 million. Adjusted EBITDA loss is expected to be within the range of $72 million to $65 million.

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 six months ended June 30, 2022, special items include the change in fair value of warrant liabilities, the change in fair value of derivative liabilities, a common stock commitment fee, restructuring costs 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 later 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 each booking 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.
