UQM Technologies Inc., a developer of alternative energy technologies, has announced operating results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017. Total revenue for the quarter was $2.8 million compared to $1.0 million in the third quarter last year, an increase of 169%. Net loss for the third quarter was $543,000, or $0.01 per common share. This compares to a net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.05 per common share for the same period last year.
“Steady sales of our propulsion systems along with sales of fuel cell compressor systems to our Chinese OEM customer drove our dramatic increase in revenue,” says Joe Mitchell, UQM Technologies’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the quarter, we also closed the first stage investment from China National Heavy Duty Truck Company and received $5.1 million in cash from the sale of 9.9% equity ownership of our common stock. We continue to make progress towards the closing of the second stage investment. Our strengthened balance sheet and the momentum we are seeing in the business should help us capitalize on our initiatives and further execute on our strategy to be a global leader in electric propulsion systems.”
