Foresight Announces First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd.

Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd., an innovator in automotive vision systems (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX) (“Foresight” or the “Company”), today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2023. Foresight ended the first quarter of 2023 with $21.7 million in cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term deposits. The Company reported a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) net loss of $4.6 million for the first quarter of 2023 and a non-GAAP net loss for the same period of $4.2 million. “Foresight’s industry-leading technology continued to gain momentum during the first quarter of 2023. We are particularly pleased by our achievements in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, as we began an additional important joint proof of concept (POC) project with a leading Japanese global vehicle manufacturer. Foresight Changzhou Automotive Ltd. (“Foresight Changzhou”), our fully owned subsidiary in Jiangsu Province, China, received special recognition from the China Israel Changzhou Innovation Park, and Eye-Net Mobile Ltd. (“Eye-Net” or “Eye-Net Mobile”), our wholly owned subsidiary, received its first order for the Eye-Zone™ V2X automotive system from a leading Japanese automotive manufacturer,” said Haim Siboni, CEO of Foresight. “The first quarter also saw a key breakthrough for Rail Vision Ltd. (“Rail Vision”), our affiliate, which received an order from Israel Railways for 10 Main Line Systems. We believe that these achievements for Foresight, Eye-Net, and Rail Vision demonstrate the exceptional performance of our technology, as our POC projects are in the process of converting into orders from leading organizations in the automotive, defense, and transportation industries. As we continue to prove our ability to create tailored, high-performance solutions for a diverse customer base, we expect to see increased demand,” concluded Mr. Siboni. First Quarter Corporate Highlights ● Foresight Announces POC Project with Global Japanese Vehicle Manufacturer: In March 2023, Foresight announced the signing of a paid joint POC project with a leading global Japanese vehicle manufacturer. The POC project will evaluate Foresight’s innovative solution for the automatic calibration of mono cameras. Foresight and the manufacturer will work together to develop a breakthrough solution capable of detecting when a single camera’s position has changed. The solution will also use Foresight’s proprietary software to provide real-time correction of a camera’s position while the vehicle is in motion. If successful, the POC project may provide a solution that eliminates the need for external calibration in a garage for all vehicles using mono cameras. ● Eye-Net Receives Order from Leading Japanese Vehicle Manufacturer for Eye-Zone System: In February 2023, Eye-Net announced that it received its first order for an Eye-Zone vehicle-to-everything (V2X) automotive system from a global Japanese vehicle manufacturer. The two parties will begin a paid POC project to evaluate the capabilities and added value of the Eye-Zone system as a software V2X communication layer. The POC will include the integration of Eye-Zone within the manufacturer’s advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), enabling seamless communication between vehicles and all road users. ● Rail Vision Announces $1.4 Million Agreement with Israel Railways to Sell 10 AI-Driven Main Line Systems: Rail Vision announced in February 2023 that it signed an agreement with Israel Railways for the purchase of 10 Rail Vision Main Line Systems and related services. Rail Vision’s AI-driven obstacle detection system outperformed in all aspects of testing during a POC project with Israel Railways. The total value of the agreement is expected to be $1.4 million. ● Israeli Ministry of Defense Recognizes Foresight Technology as Significant Breakthrough: During the first quarter of 2023, the Israeli Ministry of Defense recognized Foresight’s QuadSight® stereovision solution as a significant technological breakthrough for defense applications. The Administration for Research and Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure of Israel’s Ministry of Defense tested the QuadSight solution extensively for more than two years in challenging weather and environmental conditions. Foresight’s passive stereo technology was tested as an alternative to replace active LiDAR sensors, and the solution exceeded all testing requirements. ● Foresight Changzhou Wins Outstanding Enterprise Award: In February 2023, Foresight announced that Foresight Changzhou won the Outstanding Enterprise in International Cooperation award from China Israel Changzhou Innovation Park. Foresight received this award in recognition of its significant contribution to international cooperation in the region, and the company was one of five to win the award, out of nearly 200 companies in the China Israel Changzhou Innovation Park. ● Eye-Net Launches Virtual Sensor for Automotive Industry at CES 2023: Eye-Net showcased its new collision prediction system, Eye-Zone, at CES 2023 in Las Vegas. Eye-Zone uses Road Users Detection and Ranging (RUDAR), a unique virtual sensor that provides a point cloud of the real time location, movement characteristics, and probability of collision with each road user around the vehicle. ● Foresight Introduces Groundbreaking Mono2Stereo™ Solution at CES 2023: In January, Foresight presented a live demonstration of its Mono2Stereo software-based solution at CES 2023. Mono2Stereo uses the overlapping views of existing cameras with different fields of view to create a three-dimensional stereovision. First Quarter 2023 Financial Results Revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023, amounted to $55,000, compared to $35,000 in the first quarter of 2022. The revenues were generated primarily from the successful completion of a POC project with a global Japanese vehicle manufacturer, as well as the completion of the first milestone of Eye-Net’s POC project for the Eye-Zone system from a leading Japanese vehicle manufacturer. Research and development (R&D) expenses, net for the first quarter of 2023, were $3,119,000, compared to $2,692,000 in the first quarter of 2022. The increase is attributed mainly to an increase in payroll and related expenses, primarily due to an increase in engineers within the R&D department. R&D expenses, net in the first quarter of 2023, are offset by participation from the European Horizon 2020 program in the amount of $133,000. Sales and Marketing (S&M) expenses for the first quarter of 2023 were $704,000, compared to $624,000 in the first quarter of 2022. The increase is primarily attributed to an increase in exhibitions, conventions and travel expenses. General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the first quarter of 2023 were $857,000, compared to $1,188,000 in the first quarter of 2022. The decrease is primarily attributed to a decrease in payroll and related expenses and to a decrease in professional services and share-based payments to service providers. Finance income, net for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023, amounted to $60,000. Finance income, net, is attributed primarily to gains from revaluation of the Company’s investment in Rail Vision to its fair value in the amount of $122,000, as well as from interest on deposits in the amount of $210,000, offset by exchange rate differences and other expenses in the amount of $272,000. GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2023 was $4,586,000, or $0.014 per ordinary share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $2,024,000, or $0.006 per ordinary share, in the first quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2023 was $4,241,000, or $0.013 per ordinary share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $1,527,000 in the first quarter of 2022, or $0.004 per ordinary share. A reconciliation between GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss is provided following the financial statements that are part of this release. Non-GAAP results exclude the effect of share-based compensation expenses. Balance Sheet Highlights Cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term deposits totaled $21.7 million as of March 31, 2023, compared to $26.5 million as of December 31, 2022 GAAP shareholder’s equity totaled $24.6 million as of March 31, 2023, compared to $28.8 million as of December 31, 2022. The decrease is attributed to the net loss for the period. Use of Non-GAAP Financial Results In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures of net loss for the period that exclude the effect of stock-based compensation expenses. The Company’s management believes the non-GAAP financial information provided in this release is useful to investors’ understanding and assessment of the Company's ongoing operations. Management also uses both GAAP and non-GAAP information in evaluating and operating business internally and as such deemed it important to provide all this information to investors. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. Reconciliations between GAAP measures and non-GAAP measures are provided later in this press release. About Foresight Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd.

World Record Travel by Travelport: 7 Wonders of the World in Less than 7 Days


A video accompanying this announcement is available at: s Travelport, a global technology company that powers travel bookings for hundreds of thousands of travel suppliers worldwide, and Jamie McDonald, a British adventurer better known as “ Adventureman ”, today announced a new world record – the fastest time to visit the new Seven Wonders of the World, achieved in less than seven days. Confirmed by Guinness World Records, the journey was achieved in 6 days, 16 hours, and 14 minutes, using only public transportation. The challenge was set to Adventureman by Travelport in order to put the company’s modern retail platform, Travelport+, to the test, proving that the company’s technology allows its travel agency partners to simply plan, book and manage even the world’s most complex trip. “When we began upgrading our agency partners to Travelport+ in 2021, it was with the intent of making the complicated travel industry easier and faster to navigate,” said Greg Webb, Chief Executive Officer at Travelport. “This epic adventure was the ultimate test for our platform – could we take the world’s most complex trip and make it simple? Could we ensure it was easy to service? Would the platform be agile enough to accommodate whatever unforeseen bumps the trip encountered? Six days, sixteen hours and fourteen minutes later, we had our answer: yes, yes and yes. This trip also proves that, after a few challenging years for the industry, travel is most definitely back and better than ever.” Travelport+ provides global travel agents with modern retail technology that allows them to compare millions of travel routes and select the best one for each individual traveller. Travelbag, a travel agency who has been a longtime partner of Travelport, booked all aspects of Adventureman’s trip via Travelport+, and they were able to search, filter, find, compare and build the most complex itinerary with ease using Smartpoint Cloud. Adventureman had round-the-clock access to a dedicated Travelbag Travel Specialist who, on his request, tracked evolving travel restrictions, identified schedule changes, and made necessary tweaks to his itinerary in real time. He also was able to access Travelport’s Trip Manager feature on the go, in order to add ancillaries and extras (meals, paid seats, etc.) to his itinerary. For travelers who want to visit one, or all, of the seven modern wonders themselves, Travelbag has a range of packages available, allowing travelers to visit all seven wonders of the world themselves (packages starting from £31,000) or visit an individual wonder (packages starting at £1,300 per person). Depending on each traveler’s individual requirements, Travelbag can tailor-make the perfect holiday. “At Travelbag, we’ve planned and booked thousands of trips, and yet, even we had never seen an itinerary this complex before,” said Caroline Foxwell, Sales and Service Leader at Travelbag. “The retailing tools from Travelport+ are so powerful – Smartpoint Cloud made booking and servicing this trip so easy, it practically did the job for us. Travelport+ helps us to build the perfect itinerary for our clients, time and again, even when that client is a globetrotting, world record-setting superhero!” Adventureman began the trip at the Great Wall of China, the world's longest human-made structure, and the world-record clock started ticking the moment he left the first wonder via toboggan. Second, he visited India’s Taj Mahal – the country’s top tourist destination, which is widely considered a symbol of eternal love. From there, he traveled to Jordan and then by bus to the ancient city of Petra, whose carved rose-red sandstone rock facades, tombs, and temples became even more famous from their role in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. Departing Jordan, Adventureman flew to Rome to see its legendary Colosseum, envisioning ancient gladiator battles before he made time for a quick pizza pit stop (the only non-airplane food he consumed during the trip). Christ the Redeemer, the world’s largest art deco statue, brought Adventureman to Brazil, where he was equally in awe of the view from its platform as he was of the statue itself. The sixth wonder, Machu Pichu (an Incan citadel nearly 8,000 feet above sea level) was Adventureman’s favorite: he plans to go back one day and bought a stuffed llama toy there to bring back for his daughter. Finally, after only 6 days, 16 hours and 14 minutes, he reached Chichén Itzá, an archeological site that was a hallowed place of ceremony in the Mayan culture. For Adventureman, a main focus of the record-breaking trip was raising funds for his charity, the Superhero Foundation. As a child, Jamie was diagnosed with a rare spinal condition called syringomyelia, and doctors warned his parents that he might lose the ability to walk. Through the help of many doctors, hospitals and his family, his health improved, starting him on his lifelong mission of giving back to sick kids around the world. To kick start fundraising efforts, Travelport has donated $22,856, a dollar for every mile that Jamie, a Pride of Britain winner, traveled for this challenge. The money will be utilized to continue the charity’s mission: helping families in need fund treatments, therapies and equipment that aren’t freely available to them through their traditional or local healthcare support system. “In my previous adventures, I’ve run solo across America (the equivalent of 210 marathons) and have cycled 22,000 kilometers from Thailand to the United Kingdom, and yet, this was certainly my most complex, complicated trip yet,” said Jamie McDonald, better known as Adventureman. “With travel, there are just so many variables – weather, restrictions, delays, customs, traffic, cancellations, you name it. When you’re attempting to set a world record, speed and agility are absolutely key. There was no other partner besides Travelport that could’ve made this all possible.” For the trip to be endorsed by Guinness World Records, Adventureman had to abide by several rules: Use only scheduled public transportation, with licensed taxi rides unable to exceed 50 kilometers Keep a logbook with clearly indexed evidence (receipts, tickets, etc.) supporting each step Obtain receipts and/or tickets everywhere available Use accurate professional equipment (i.e. GPS tracking equipment) Take videos and photos showing the applicant, the location and the date at each site visited Get a written or recorded statement from an official member of staff, local dignitary and/or police officer at each site Understand that the ‘clock’ starts the moment the challenger leaves the first wonder site, and it does not stop for any reason until the challenger sets foot in the final site Protecting the environment is of the utmost importance to both Travelport and Adventureman. The company calculated the carbon emissions from Adventureman’s trip using using the Travel Impact Model, a shared framework for calculating air travel emissions maintained by Google and developed as part of Travalyst, an independent not-for-profit organization of which Travelport is a member. Travalyst is working to unify industry tools and information to bring sustainable travel to the mainstream. As such, the total CO2 emissions of the world record trip was 2,523 kg. Travelport will remove these emissions with high-quality carbon dioxide removal services from Climeworks.
