(NASDAQ: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging station products and networked EV charging services, today announced unaudited financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. Below are important details for the 2019 quarter.
Total revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 increased 39.8% to $764,486 from $546,844 for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.
Hardware sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 increased 210% to $319,254 from $102,958 for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

We installed four dual-port charging stations in Israel, supporting Israel’s goal of eliminating the sale of internal combustion engines by the year 2030. Each port on the dual Blink EV charging stations deployed in Israel has a charging capacity of 43 kilowatts per hour. The charging stations offer the fastest AC charging capabilities available, enabling them to accommodate future EV innovations and battery charging capabilities as the industry matures. In the coming months, Blink plans to deploy more than 20 additional chargers at the facilities of Israel’s largest importer of vehicles. Blink will offer the importer’s customers home EV chargers along with Blink’s user membership, giving those customers immediate access to Blink EV charging stations around the world.
Blink Charging Hellas, a Greek entity that Blink owns together with Eunice Energy Group and others, announced its first deployment of Blink EV charging stations in Greece, as part of the green energy electrification of the Rio-Antirrio “Charilaos Trikoupis” Bridge. Blink installed two dual-port charging stations on the bridge. Each of the four ports has 22 kilowatts per hour charging capabilities.
Our net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2019 increased by $474,358, or 22%, to $2,622,989 as compared to $2,148,631 for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The increase was primarily attributable to a decrease in non-operating, other income (expenses), of $1,208,786, offset by a reduction of operating expenses of $719,944 and an increase in gross profit of $14,484.
Michael D. Farkas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated “We continue to focus on sales and marketing expansion, and we can see results in the last two quarters’ increase in product sales and network fees. We will continue to focus on growing all revenue lines with our unique business model that provides property hosts with a range of solutions tailored to their specific needs.”
