Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK) reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31st, 2020. The company reported a revenue increase of 250% for the fourth quarter to USD 2.5 Million. Product sales increased to USD 1.8 Million compared to USD 0.2 Million in the same period a year ago due to a rise in demand for the company’s commercial and residential products.
For full year 2020, revenue increased 121% to USD 6.2 Million compared to USD 2.8 Million in 2019. Revenue derived from product sales increased to USD 4.4 Million compared to USD 0.9 Million in 2019. "Blink's fourth quarter 2020 results delivered a strong close to 2020, continuing the momentum we built during the second and third quarters, and characterized by significantly increased revenue driven by substantial growth in product sales. Despite the many public health and economic challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we've continued the aggressive deployment of our owned and operated EV charging stations for a wide variety of partners and locations, including healthcare networks, hotels, multi-family residences, and municipalities. Specifically, during the fourth quarter, 66% of commercial deployments were Blink-owned units. As we have previously outlined, Blink's unique owner/operator model is a key differentiator in our industry. With this model, we realize an economic benefit each time a vehicle is charged at a Blink-owned unit. As EV adoption continues to grow and utilization of chargers increases, we expect Blink-owned units will represent a valuable recurring revenue stream for many years to come," stated Michael D. Farkas, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Blink.
"We ended 2020 strong and have positioned us for continued success at the beginning of 2021. In January, we completed a successful equity raise, significantly strengthening our balance sheet, which will enable us to continue our growth at a systematic and accelerated pace. Our growth will continue both organically and through targeted acquisitions as we look to grow our footprint of EV chargers," commented Michael Rama, Chief Financial Officer of Blink. "
"Blink is a longtime leader in the EV charging industry, and we have been methodically and strategically expanding our geographic footprint and building our brand recognition to capture opportunities as the world transitions to EVs. We are energized by our industry's momentum, which continues to benefit from the adoption of clean energy and clean transportation initiatives. We've begun 2021 in a solid position, and we plan to capitalize on the many opportunities we see to provide the accessible, fast, and reliable EV infrastructure that makes EV travel both attractive and viable," commented Brendan Jones, President of Blink.
