  • Net Loss per Share was significantly reduced to ($0.10) from ($0.25)

*The Company's financial results for the three and six months ended September 30, 2015 also appear in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which was filed with the SEC on Monday, May 23, 2016.

"For this nine-month period, we reported continued progress by delivering a gross profit, which had been a key Company target for 2015. In addition, overall Company performance improved and our net loss was reduced by more than half of the net loss reported for the same period in 2014," stated Mike Calise, CarCharging's Chief Executive Officer. "In the third quarter of 2015, we also began to develop our plan to increase Company operating efficiency in order to manage through flat EV market conditions ahead of 2016. The plan should have a positive effect on the Company's continued leadership in a market that is expected to expand dramatically in the coming years.

"With major announcements from leading global automotive manufacturers, EV adoption is showing healthy signs of growth, and given that a large segment of our public EV charging customers are Tesla drivers, the news surrounding the Model 3 preorders supports the projected results that the Company's leadership anticipates in 2016, 2017, and beyond," continued Mr. Calise.

"We have also made positive strides recently in bringing our SEC filings up-to-date and believe that the market has appreciated the Company making this effort a top priority," said Mr. Calise. "This is the third 10-Q that we have filed within the last two months and we anticipate filing our annual report for 2015 very soon."
