ESG comment:

Vicinity Motors keeps impressing us with their steady flow of news. This time its the product launch of a new fully electric class 3 vehicle . The product segment class 3 is high in demand as seen by the news that Electric last mile (ELMS) recently announced that they will be producing this type of vehicle from the second half of 2022. Another competitor Lightning eMotors are also active in the class 3 product segment.
As a fun comparison these SPAC competitor Lightning eMotors is valued at 600 MUSD with revenues expected to land between 50 – 60 MUSD for 2021 indicating an EV/sales multiple of 10 X.

Another SPAC competitor Electric last mile is valued at 1,4 BILLION USD with sales estimated at 122 MUSD for 2021 indicating an EV/sales multiple of 11,5.

Meanwhile Vicinity Motors is valued still at only 200 MCAD and we estimate that revenues for 2021 will be landing between 50-75 MCAD and for 2022 with this new product launch we estimate between 100-200 MCAD in revenues depending on production capacity.

These projections indicate an EV/Sales multiple between 2,5-4 for 2021 and 1-2 for 2022
. It’s fair to say that Vicinity Motors , which are growing at triple digit speed is undervalued compared to other electric vehicle producers.
