Envision Solar Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results

Developing New Products With Lower Capital Requirements and Faster Deployments

SAN DIEGO, CA --(Marketwired - August 14, 2013) - Envision Solar International, Inc. (OTCQB: EVSI) ("Envision Solar," or the "Company"), a manufacturer and designer of unique, architecturally accretive, renewable energy systems, today announced results for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Desmond Wheatley, Chief Executive Officer of Envision Solar, began, "We have made significant advances in the development of products with higher revenue potential, broader appeal, lower price points and, we believe, lower barriers to adoption. While we have seen an elongation of certain sales cycles associated with some of our larger initiatives, we continue to make progress and still expect to capitalize on those efforts in the coming quarters."

Second Quarter 2013

Net revenues were $2,282 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $111,793 in the comparable period in the prior year. Envision Solar substantially completed two large projects in the second quarter of 2012. While the Company is making positive progress with Cadillac to introduce its products to Cadillac's U.S. dealer network, the sales cycle has been protracted.

Operating expenses were $504,949 during the second quarter of 2013, down from $599,692 in the second quarter 2012. The Company incurred lower non-cash stock-based compensation expenses in the three months ended June 30, 2013 while marketing and payroll related expenses increased.

Interest expense was $161,638 for the second quarter of 2013, down approximately 21% from $205,156 for the same period in 2012. Reduced amortization of debt discounts associated with previous debt modifications was the primary driver of the lower interest expense.

Net loss and net loss per share were $708,392 and $0.01 in the second quarter of 2013 compared to $235,405 and $0.004 in the same period in 2012, respectively. The weighted average shares outstanding increased from 56,696,863 to 70,894,547 in 2013.

Envision Solar had $1,341,669 of cash on hand at June 30, 2013. Cash used in operating activities was $690,015 for the first six months of 2013 compared to operating cash outflows of $381,708 for the comparable period a year ago. A primary reason for the increased cash usage for the first six months of 2013 was a higher net loss.

Business Updates

Envision Solar continues to work with the corporate teams at Cadillac to increase awareness and deployment of its Solar Tree® structures to Cadillac's 952 U.S. dealerships. Additionally, it is developing new products that should have reduced sales cycles and faster time to recoupment of investments for its prospective clients. They include the following:

  1. EV ARC™ (Electric Vehicle Automous Renewable Charger). This portable product can be deployed in minutes and requires less capital for customers. Envision Solar has purchase contracts in place with the first two customers for EV ARC™ and will deliver the products in the U.S. and for an overseas customer starting this month.
  2. Solar Tree® HVLC (High Volume Low Cost) structure. This product leverages the high quality engineering and fabrication of the standard Solar Tree® structure without many of the aesthetic attributes and details. Solar Tree® HVLC will be significantly less expensive than the standard Solar Tree® structure; it is designed for broader deployments and for instances where low cost energy production is an important consideration for prospective buyers.
  3. Solar Tree® SMP (Sustainable Media Platform). The Company has partnered with Daktronics, the leading manufacturer of digital billboards, to create a Solar Tree® structure with static or digital media capabilities. The Company believes these products will provide rapid ROI for retail and commercial real estate owners located in high traffic areas.

2013 Outlook

Envision Solar continues to develop new and existing relationships. The Company anticipates several upcoming milestones:

  1. Q3 2013. Production of the first of the Company's products for export to an overseas customer
  2. Q3 2013. Deployment of the initial production of EV ARC™s
  3. Q4 2014. Increased adoption of the Cadillac Solar Tree® structure
