Envision Solar Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - November 13, 2013) - Envision Solar International, Inc. (OTCQB: EVSI) ("Envision Solar" or the "Company"), a designer and manufacturer of unique, architecturally accretive, renewable energy media and branding systems, today announced results for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Desmond Wheatley, Chief Executive Officer of Envision Solar, stated, "We have sold and successfully rolled out EV ARC™. We have also sold and are about to deploy the first of our Solar Tree HVLC structures; two products which we believe to have the highest volume potentials in our product portfolio. We continue to evolve the company into a Renewable Energy Media and Branding product company also addressing the growing EV charging segment. These verticals will see spending in the billions in the coming months and years with triple digit CAGRs. Our products are the most elegant solutions for many of the opportunities in these verticals and we are positioning the company to benefit from these growing segments."

Third Quarter 2013

Net revenues were $80,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $197,319 in the comparable period in the prior year. Envision Solar had two active projects for the installation of Solar Tree® arrays in the third quarter of 2012 while revenues in the current period have been derived from the sale and delivery of the first two EV ARC™ (Electric Vehicle Autonomous Renewable Charger) units.

Operating expenses were $539,539 for the third quarter of 2013, down from $648,715 in the third quarter of 2012. The Company incurred lower non-cash stock-based compensation and payroll expenses in the three months ended September 30, 2013 while marketing expenses increased.

Interest expense was $162,595 for the third quarter of 2013, down approximately 21% from $205,961 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.

The Company incurred net loss and net loss per share of $323,986 and $0.005 in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $600,606 and $0.01 in the same period in 2012, respectively. The weighted average shares outstanding increased from 57,385,109 to 71,401,616 in the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Envision Solar had $889,912 of cash on hand at September 30, 2013. Cash used in operating activities was $1,098,801 for the first nine months of 2013 compared to operating cash outflows of $759,173 for the comparable period a year ago. A primary reason for the increased cash usage for the first nine months of 2013 was a higher net loss as a result of the first time nature of the deployments of both the Cadillac Solar Tree® structure and the EV ARC™. Management believes that reductions in Costs of Goods Sold will occur with increases in sales and production volume of both products.

Business Updates

Envision Solar is now working with Cadillac to increase awareness and deployment of its Solar Tree® structures to Cadillac's 952 U.S. dealerships and also to non-dealership environments. Additionally, it has successfully deployed its latest product offering, EV ARC™, and continues to develop other new products that should have reduced sales cycles and faster time to recoupment of investments for its prospective clients. They include the following:

1. 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.
2. 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.

Outlook

Envision Solar anticipates announcing developments with regards to the following:

1. First EV charging product produced and shipped for export
2. Deployment of EV ARC™ in high profile environments such as San Diego International Airport
3. Significant deployment of Solar Tree® HVLCs for a nationwide retailer
4. First branded EV ARC™ sales
