Red Cat Holdings Reports Record Quarterly Revenues for its First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2023 and Provides Corporate Update

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Sept. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Red Cat Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RCAT) (“Red Cat” or “Company”), a hardware-enabled software provider to the drone industry, reports financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2023 (three months ending 7/31/2022) and provides a business update.

Recent Corporate Highlights:


  • Skypersonic demonstrated remote-piloted drone at LoveIT Detroit's Aerospace Reception
  • Teal Drones received FAA waiver to hold public demonstration of its Eris technology that enables a single pilot to simultaneously control multiple drones
  • Teal Drones secured exclusive license to use autonomous drone software and technology from Autonodyne
  • Skypersonic demonstrated its "Fly Anywhere" technology on Mt. Etna, an active volcano in Sicily
  • Skypersonic inspected a utility plant in Italy using a drone controlled by a pilot located in Florida using a cellphone connection
  • Teal completed development and production of a four-drone, multi-vehicle system for defense, government, and public safety markets
  • Skypersonic completed a two-year program under which General Motors used the Skycopter to perform crane rail inspections at 19 North American stamping facilities


  • Fat Shark launched a new FPV (first-person view) drone headset, the Dominator, which is a low-latency, 1080p digital goggle with an extended flight range over existing systems
  • Consumer segment generated record quarterly revenues in 1Q23

First Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights:

  • Record Revenues for any fiscal quarter since the Company's inception
  • Revenues increased 120% year-over-year and 134% sequentially
  • Cash and Investment balance of $43 million at July 31, 2022
  • Inventory at July 31, 2022 of approximately $6.4 million established to address supply chain challenges and forecast demand

“Despite the inflationary and supply chain pressures that persisted during our fiscal first quarter, we executed well and delivered record quarterly revenue, including year-over-year and sequential revenue increases over 100%. We are encouraged by Teal’s strong pipeline, along with ramping sales of Fat Shark’s new Dominator goggle,” commented Red Cat CEO Jeff Thompson.

“The War in Ukraine has fundamentally changed the methods and tools of warfare. Smaller Class 1 drones like the Teal Golden Eagle can be an important tool for the warfighter. We expect accelerating demand from the defense spending renaissance in Eastern Europe for the foreseeable future. We also envision a complementary role for the innovative Skycopter, given its ability to navigate and inspect indoor and confined spaces, tunnels, and other dangerous environments on the battlefield,” concluded Thompson.

“Despite active construction at the Teal factory, we achieved record production volume during the quarter,” stated George Matus, Chief Executive Officer of Teal Drones. “It is clear that our investment to expand our manufacturing capacity and product development are bearing fruit, and we expect further increases in demand and unit production in future quarters.”

“Our fiscal 2023 year is off to a resounding start, as record quarterly revenues almost equaled half of total revenues for fiscal 2022,” stated Joseph Hernon, Chief Financial Officer. “Our financial position remains strong, with almost $43 million of cash and marketable securities and debt obligations of less than $2 million. Inventory levels are higher than normal, both in response to the challenges associated with supply chain delays and to meet growing customer demand.”
