Enovix Announces Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Jul 26, 2023

FREMONT, Calif., July 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enovix Corporation (“Enovix”) (Nasdaq: ENVX), an advanced silicon battery company, announced today financial results for the second quarter of 2023, which included the summary below from its President and CEO, Dr. Raj Talluri.

Fellow Shareholders,

In the second quarter of 2023 we made significant progress on our journey to scale. First, we produced 22,502 units, which beat our plan of 18,000 units by 25%, due to continued operational improvements in Fab1. Second, we delivered on the commitment to secure $70 million of non-dilutive local funding to support our first high-volume production line in Malaysia. Third, as announced, we received a purchase order to produce BrakeFlow™-enabled cells for the U.S. Army, which is both a strong endorsement of our technology and a critical step on the path toward volume production. Fourth, we added two new seasoned board members and continued to attract high-end talent from the semiconductor industry to our leadership team, including CFO Farhan Ahmad, CLO Arthi Chakravarthy, and VP of Sales Dave Cech. Farhan and Arthi worked with me at Micron and Dave worked with me at Qualcomm. All three have the experience and attributes we need to support our global scale-up.

During the quarter I made my first trip to Asia since becoming CEO of Enovix. A top priority was observing the status of Gen2 production equipment, which was detailed in a video last month. Much progress has been made since last quarter, and we remain on track to commence Factory Acceptance Testing (“FAT”) next month in support of battery sample production from the first Gen2 Autoline beginning in April 2024.

The trip also provided me the chance to visit smartphone and smartwatch customers I have supported throughout my career in semiconductors. I am happy to share that Enovix has established engagements for smartphones with leading OEMs Xiaomi, Vivo, and Lenovo. Xiaomi and Vivo were both top 5 OEMs globally in smartphone shipments in 2022, according to IDC. And Lenovo’s Motorola brand held the No. 3 market share spot among mobile vendors in the U.S. during the second quarter, according to Statcounter Global Stats.

Our meetings with OEMs offered new insights that allowed us to refine in detail our product and manufacturing capacity planning. One key learning was the increasing popularity of flip and fold phones, which are expected to grow over 50% to 21.4 million units this year, according to IDC. The higher energy density we offer can allow OEMs to utilize one high-capacity battery to power their large, foldable screens, as opposed to using two conventional batteries, one on each side. This would allow our customers to reduce bulk and complexity while not sacrificing battery life.

Business Update

Manufacturing. We took important steps during the quarter to prepare for high-volume production in Malaysia next year. In May, over 20 process, product, and equipment engineers who will work at Fab2 in Penang, arrived in Fremont to train in Fab1. This group will return to Asia later this year to oversee FAT at our vendors and Site Acceptance Testing (“SAT”) in Malaysia as Gen2 equipment arrives on site at Fab2.

We have finalized our agreement with YBS to utilize their building and direct labor for Fab2 at the Penang Science Park, and work has commenced to prepare the facility for housing our battery production lines.

Additionally, we remain on track to install our Agility Line for customer qualification by year-end 2023 to support custom battery programs.

Commercialization. We made progress during the quarter advancing customer qualifications while picking up new engagements. The bottom end of our funnel closest to revenue, “Active Designs and Design Wins”, increased QoQ to $737 million from $718 million in Q1 2023. Overall, the revenue funnel increased by 9% to $1.59 billion from $1.46 billion, due to our overall customer opportunities growing by 14% to 121 from 106 QoQ.

We are building a global footprint to serve customers. During the quarter, we announced agreements with Japanese distribution and manufacturing services company, Elematec Corporation, and South Korean power management and IoT-focused distributor, Semicomtech. Both will support market expansion with pan-Asian shipping and distribution.

Technology and Products. We announced this month the general availability of our IoT and Wearable cell for smartwatches, headsets, and other IoT devices. And later this year, we expect customers to begin releasing products into the market powered by this cell.

The Enovix product team is enhancing our alignment with customer roadmaps. During the quarter we gained a greater understanding of key requirements by customer and end market for performance metrics such as energy density, cycle life, and charge rate trade-offs. Our R&D team has integrated these requirements into a technology roadmap that for the first time distinguishes parameters based on the three end markets we are initially focused on: IoT, Mobile, and Computing. We will deliver optimal Enovix batteries to the distinct requirements of each of these markets by taking full advantage of our high precision stacked manufacturing process and material agnostic approach.

R&D. We made solid progress on our major R&D projects while initiating new efforts directed at reducing battery development cycle times by over 3x spearheaded by our growing team in India. The Enovix India team will develop advanced models to predict battery performance and support next-gen battery design using machine learning and data analysis. 

In addition to our energy density leadership, we believe the unique design of our silicon battery potentially enables faster charging over conventional graphite-based cells. This is due to: 1) our thinner anode, which allows for faster diffusion of lithium; 2) our use of silicon, which has a higher buffer to prevent lithium plating during charging and better kinetics for lithiation; and 3) our unique architecture, which enables higher thermal conductivity. Fast charging is of high interest across our target markets, in particular smartphones, and we have dedicated more R&D resources here.

Financials. Total revenue in the second quarter of 2023 was $42,000 which consisted entirely of product revenue from shipping just over 10,000 cells.

Our GAAP cost of revenue of $14.2 million in the second quarter of 2023 was up from $12.2 million in the first quarter of 2023. Our non-GAAP cost of revenue of $12.6 million in the second quarter of 2023 was up from $11.3 million in the first quarter of 2023.

Our GAAP operating expenses of $37.7 million in the second quarter of 2023 were down from $51.0 million in the first quarter of 2023. Our non-GAAP operating expenses of $19.9 million in the second quarter of 2023 were down from $22.8 million in the first quarter of 2023.

We exited the second quarter of 2023 with $409.2 million of cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments after generating $150 million in net proceeds from our convertible debenture offering offset by cash used in operating activities of $23.6 million and capital expenditures of $12.7 million.

A full reconciliation of our GAAP to Non-GAAP results is available later in this report.


In the third quarter of 2023, we forecast production of approximately 36,000 units based on continued operational improvements.

For full-year 2023, we continue to forecast spending $120 million of cash operationally but are lowering our CapEx forecast from $120 million to $70 million. This is due primarily to CapEx payments for our first Gen2 Autoline that we previously forecast to spend directly that are being covered by the local funding in Malaysia.


We made strong progress in the second quarter as Fab1 outperformed our expectations while our plans for high-volume production in Malaysia next year remain on track. Customer interest in our products remains robust, highlighted by progress with the U.S. Army and collaborations on smartphones with leading OEMs Xiaomi, Vivo, and Lenovo.

Management’s Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow and other non-GAAP measures are intended as supplemental financial measures of our performance that are neither required by, nor presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the use of Non-GAAP measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results, trends, and in comparing our financial measures with those of comparable companies, which may present similar Non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

However, you should be aware that when evaluating the non-GAAP measures, we may incur future expenses similar to those excluded when calculating these measures. In addition, the presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items. Our computation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow and other Non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures computed by other companies, because all companies may not calculate the Non-GAAP measures in the same fashion.

Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA

While we prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP, we also utilize and present certain financial measures that are not based on GAAP. We refer to these financial measures as “Non-GAAP” financial measures. In addition to our financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, we believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful measures in evaluating its financial and operational performance distinct and apart from financing costs, certain non-cash expenses and non-operational expenses.

These Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP. We endeavor to compensate for the limitation of the Non-GAAP financial measures presented by also providing the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

We use Non-GAAP financial information to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning, budgeting and forecasting purposes. We believe that Non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors in assessing its operating performance and comparing its performance with competitors and other comparable companies. You should review the reconciliations below but not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

“EBITDA” is defined as earnings (net loss) adjusted for interest expense, income taxes, depreciation expense and amortization expense. “Adjusted EBITDA” includes additional adjustments to EBITDA such as stock-based compensation expense, change in fair value of common stock warrants, impairment of equipment and other special items as determined by management which it does not believe to be indicative of its underlying business trends.

Below is a reconciliation of net income (loss) on a GAAP basis to the Non-GAAP EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA financial measures for the periods presented below (in thousands):

Free Cash Flow

We define “Free Cash Flow” as (i) net cash from operating activities less (ii) capital expenditures, net of proceeds from disposals of property and equipment, all of which are derived from our Consolidated Statements of Cash Flow. The presentation of non-GAAP Free Cash Flow is not intended as an alternative measure of cash flows from operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP. We believe that this financial measure is useful to investors because it provides investors to view our performance using the same tool that we use to gauge our progress in achieving our goals and it is an indication of cash flow that may be available to fund investments in future growth initiatives. Below is a reconciliation of net cash used in operating activities to the Free Cash Flow financial measures for the periods presented below (in thousands):
