Organization and Operations
Blink Charging Co., through its wholly-owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company” or “Blink”), is a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (“EV”) charging equipment and networked EV charging services. Blink offers residential and commercial EV charging equipment, enabling EV drivers to recharge at various location types. Blink’s principal line of products and services is its Blink EV charging networks (the “Blink Networks”) and Blink EV charging equipment, also known as electric vehicle supply equipment (“EVSE”), and other EV-related services. The Blink Networks provide property owners, managers, parking companies, and state and municipal entities (“Property Partners”) with cloud-based services that enable the remote monitoring and management of EV charging stations. The Blink Networks also provide EV drivers with vital station information, including station location, availability and fees. Blink also operates a ride-sharing program through the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, BlueLA Rideshare, LLC, and the City of Los Angeles which allows customers the ability to rent electric vehicles through a subscription service.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and disclosures required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, such statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring items) which are considered necessary for a fair presentation of the condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company as of September 30, 2022 and for the three and nine months then ended. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year ending December 31, 2022 or any other period. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related disclosures of the Company as of December 31, 2021 and for the year then ended, which were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 16, 2022 as part of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.
Risks and Uncertainties
The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted global stock markets and economies. The Company closely monitors the impact of the continuing presence of Covid-19 and multiple Covid-19 variants. The Company has taken and continues to take precautions to ensure the safety of its employees, customers and business partners, while assuring business continuity and reliable service and support to its customers. The Company continues to receive orders for its products, although some shipments of equipment have been temporarily delayed. The global chip shortage and supply chain disruption has caused some delays in equipment orders from its contract manufacturer. As federal, state and local economies have reopened and returns to pre-pandemic levels, the Company expects demand for charging station usage to increase, however, the Company is unable to predict the extent of such recovery due to the uncertainty of Covid-19. Additionally, other recent macroeconomic events including rising inflation, slowing economic growth, changes in U.S. and foreign government monetary policies, supply chain disruptions, fluctuations in currency exchange rates and the Russian invasion of Ukraine have led to further economic uncertainty. As a result, the Company is unable to predict the ultimate impact of continuing equipment order delays, chip shortages, the impact of other economic conditions and continuous presence of Covid-19 will have on its business, future results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.
