Momentus Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTS) (“Momentus” or the “Company”), a U.S. commercial space company that offers satellite buses, transportation, and other in-space infrastructure services, today announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2023.

"In the third quarter, we saw significant traction in the commercial market that continues into the fourth quarter. We recently announced six contracts to provide hosted payload services and orbital transportation missions," said Momentus Chief Executive Officer John Rood. "We have executed four missions and deployed 18 customer satellites into orbit during our Company’s short history. Our technology is performing, we are earning the trust of new customers, and we have repeat customers, which reflects the cost-effective and reliable services we provide."

"We're focused on advancing our technology on the Vigoride Orbital Service Vehicle and our M-1000 bus as we continue to lean into the commercial and defense markets. We're confident in our capabilities, technology, and team, and we continue to push forward as an in-space infrastructure leader and provider of satellite buses."

Recent Business Highlights:

  • Momentus has raised approximately $16.9 million in gross proceeds over the past two months. Two registered direct offerings of common stock were successfully executed, one in the third quarter on September 11 and one subsequent to it on October 4, which resulted in an aggregate of $9 million in gross proceeds. The Company also raised gross proceeds of $1.35 million on October 17 and $6.5 million on November 9 from the exercise of common stock purchase warrants previously issued by the Company.
  • The Company continues to position itself in order to quickly capitalize on any potential opportunities with interested parties and evaluate all viable strategic options.
  • Momentus signed a contract with C3S for transportation and orbital delivery services in 2025. C3S is a repeat customer for Momentus. The C3S VIREO payload was transported to orbit on the Vigoride-6 mission launched in April 2023.
  • Momentus signed a contract with Aarhus University for transportation and orbital delivery services in late 2024. Aarhus is also a repeat customer. Momentus placed a satellite in Low Earth Orbit for Aarhus on the Vigoride-6 mission that launched in April 2023.
  • Momentus signed a contract with FOSSA Systems, a Spanish company that offers global low-power Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity and in-space services to provide hosted payload services starting in 2024. The contract also includes two options for additional hosted payloads. FOSSA is another repeat customer.
  • Momentus signed a contract with RIDE! Space for transportation and orbital delivery services of two payloads – including the first Senegalese satellite and the second satellite for Djibouti. Momentus and RIDE! also signed an agreement to make Momentus’ services available through the RIDE! Space digital platform built to handle the end-to-end launch process for both launch vehicles and satellite operator ecosystems.
  • Momentus signed a contract with SatRev for transportation and orbital delivery of their SOWA-1 payload in the first quarter of 2024.
  • Momentus signed a contract with AVS, Inc. for transportation and orbital delivery of the LUR-1 payload in the first quarter of 2024.
  • To date, Momentus has executed four missions, deployed 18 customer satellites in orbit, and provided hosted payload support for Caltech's Solar Power Project Demonstrator mission that recently demonstrated its ability to wirelessly transmit power in space and to beam detectable power to Earth.
  • In addition to the Vigoride Orbital Service Vehicle, Momentus is now also offering its M-1000 satellite bus. With a growing demand for satellite bus services, Momentus is positioned to advance its hardware and flight-proven technology for this market. The M-1000 bus is a flexible option to meet various mission requirements. Innovations to improve sensor capability, maneuverability, increased power, and lower costs are integrated into the product. Momentus believes it can manufacture satellite buses like the M-1000 at a rapid and scalable pace.
  • Momentus started work in support of its Small Business Innovation Research award from the Space Development Agency. This project's scope involves making tailored modifications to the system underlying the M-1000 satellite bus and Vigoride OSV to support a full range of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) payloads. Some of these areas include adding a secure payload interface, optical communications terminals, a high-volume data recorder, and improving the modularity of the propulsion system. Completion of this work is expected in April 2024.
  • Momentus submitted a bid for the Tranche 2 Tracking Layer to the U.S. Space Force Space Development Agency (SDA) to produce 18 satellites for missile tracking and fire control. Under this proposal to the SDA, Momentus is the prime contractor with a strong team of traditional and non-traditional space companies.
  • The Company recently completed vibration testing of its Vigoride-7 spacecraft that is scheduled to launch no earlier than March 2024. On that mission, Momentus will support seven customers that require orbital delivery services and two customers requiring hosted payload services. The mission also will feature a Rendezvous and Proximity Operations demonstration of a new Momentus capability that has application to future satellite inspection, servicing, refueling, and de-orbit missions. During this demonstration, Momentus plans to release a satellite and then maneuver into proximity utilizing its Vigoride Orbital Service Vehicle.
  • Momentus continues in-space testing of its Microwave Electrothermal Thruster that uses water as a propellant. As of today, Momentus has approximately 230 minutes of firing time on the MET between both thrusters at the range of durations needed for current use cases. In total, the Company has executed approximately 6.5 km in orbital raises of the Vigoride OSV by firing the MET in single or dual-thruster firings.
  • Momentus recently conducted initial in-space testing of its Tape Spring Solar Array (TASSA) developmental payload onboard the Vigoride-6. TASSA utilizes flexible solar cell technology, allowing the solar array to be extended and retracted like a tape measure. To date, the testing was able to demonstrate the majority of the major TASSA performance requirements. Momentus was recently notified that its application was approved to issue the Company a patent for technology behind TASSA.
  • The Company has space reserved on SpaceX Transporter missions launching in 2024 and is actively booking customers.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures (unaudited)

This press release references certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP selling, general, and administrative expense and non-GAAP research and development expense. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and certain other items the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating performance. The Company defines non-GAAP selling, general, and administrative expenses and research and development expenses as those respective GAAP amounts, excluding stock-based compensation and non-recurring items not indicative of core operating performance None of these non-GAAP financial measures is a substitute for or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) and should not be considered as an alternative to any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

The Company believes that presenting these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information to investors about the Company that is helpful in understanding and evaluating its operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics used by its management in financial and operational-decision making. However, there are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP measures and their nearest GAAP equivalents. For example, other companies may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, or may use other measures to calculate their financial performance, and therefore any non-GAAP measures the Company uses may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
