SAN DIEGO, Calif. – May 16, 2019 – Envision Solar International, Inc., (Nasdaq: EVSI) (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading producer ofunique and sustainable infrastructure products for electric vehicle charging, energy security, and outdoor media, today announced financial results from the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and provided a corporate update.
“2019 has already been pivotal for the Company as we have completed our follow-on offering and concurrent up-listing to the Nasdaq exchange, while continuing to successfully execute sales and product deliveries,” commented Desmond Wheatley, Envision Solar’s CEO. “We have strengthened our balance sheet and are now debt free which will enable us to efficiently deliver on existing orders, enhance our sales and marketing activities and complete product development on our patent pending products which we believe have significant, global mass market appeal. Our pipeline is at an historical high and as of March 31, 2019, our contracted backlog was $3.7 million, the majority of which we believe we will deliver in the first half of 2019. Order backlog is robust and being replenished as we continue to convert pipeline to backlog. Though our first quarter revenues are lower than in the same period in 2018, we do not believe that this is indicative of anything more than delivery timing, resource allocation during the period and due to our follow-on offering closing in April 2019 vs early Q1 2019.”
