Serve Robotics Inc.: Serve Robotics Announces First Quarter 2024 Results and Provides Corporate Update

  • Revenue of $0.95 million; 124% sequential growth in delivery and branding revenue
  • Signed agreement with Magna International for a long-term licensing partnership and exclusive contract manufacturing of Serve robots
  • Post quarter-end, successfully uplisted to the Nasdaq Capital Market with concurrent $40 million equity offering
  • Continued focus on deploying 2,000 robots under Uber Eats contract

SAN FRANCISCO, May 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Serve Robotics Inc. (the "Company" or "Serve") (Nasdaq:SERV), a leading autonomous sidewalk delivery company, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and provided a corporate update.

"The Company delivered improvements in our operational key metrics and fundamentals, including a 97% increase in daily supply hours and a 70% increase in daily active robots, when compared to the first quarter of last year. These improvements were achieved while our costs to service delivery and branding revenue remained steady. This is a testament to our employees' execution on Serve's mission to reduce the cost of last-mile transportation, and highlight our dedication to scaling our operations infrastructure. Our core technology continues to be validated by our partners, as evidenced through our recent agreements with Magna International, and we continue to see strong demand for our robots to be deployed into existing and new markets. We are also very excited to continue our growth through the completion of our $40 million underwritten public offering, supported by our strategic investors Uber and Nvidia, and our recent listing on Nasdaq," said Ali Kashani, Serve's Cofounder and CEO. "We look forward to executing on the milestones within our strategic plan, which we intend to provide to stockholders in the coming months."

Serve's near-term strategic focus remains executing its plan to develop, manufacture, and deploy a fleet of 2,000 autonomous robots on the Uber Eats platform through 2025. The proceeds from the Company's underwritten public offering in April 2024 allowed Serve to unlock procurement commitments, initiate final design-for-manufacturing reviews, and conduct further validation testing in advance of full-scale commercial production.

Serve's long-term vision remains to deploy robots in adjacent delivery and transportation verticals within multiple markets.

First Quarter 2024 and Recent Highlights

  • Public Market Debut: The Company commenced listing on the OTCQB on March 7, 2024. Following the end of our first quarter, the Company completed an uplisting to the Nasdaq Capital Market, and began trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker symbol "SERV" on April 18, 2024. This uplisting enabled the completion of a public equity offering generating $40.0 million in gross proceeds.
  • Strategic Investments: Participation in the offering included $4.5 million of new investment from one of Serve's largest stockholders and strategic partners, Postmates, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE: UBER). Long-term technology partner NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA) also participated in a $2.5 million investment round closed on January 2, 2024.
  • Operational Performance: Serve averaged 300 daily supply hours during the first quarter 2024, a 97% increase compared to first quarter 2023, and a 15% increase compared to fourth quarter 2023. The Company also achieved a 70% increase in daily active robots for the first quarter 2024 compared to first quarter 2023, and 15% increase compared to fourth quarter 2023.
  • Magna Collaboration: Serve entered into a Master Services Agreement ("MSA") with Magna International Inc. ("Magna") (TSX: MG; NYSE: MGA), one of the world's largest automotive suppliers. Included in the MSA was both a statement of work for services to be provided by Serve, and a licensing agreement in which the Company licensed its autonomous technology software to accelerate Magna's development into new products within the robotics and logistics space.
    • Manufacturing: On April 24, 2024, the Magna MSA was expanded through the establishment of a new production and purchase agreement wherein Magna became the exclusive contract manufacturer of Serve's delivery robots.

First Quarter Financial Highlights

  • First quarter revenue was $0.95 million including $0.85 million in software service revenue derived from the Company's agreement with Magna. The Company expects to recognize the remaining $0.35 million in the second quarter 2024.
  • As of March 31, 2024, the Company had $0.43 million of cash and cash equivalents. As of April 30, 2024, the Company had approximately $34.2 million of cash and cash equivalents, after including proceeds from its April 2024 public offering.
  • As of March 31, 2024, the Company had 24.6 million shares of common stock outstanding. As of May 13, 2024, following the share issuance from the Company's April 2024 public offering, the Company had 37.1 million shares of common stock outstanding, and 42.2 million shares on a fully diluted basis.
