Sidus Space, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2022 Results and Business Update

Revenue Increased 1075% in First Quarter 2022 from First Quarter 2021


CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., May 13, 2022—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Sidus Space, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIDU), a Space-as-a-Service satellite company focused on commercial satellite design, manufacture, launch, and data collection, today announced recent company highlights and financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.


Q1 2022 Financial Highlights:


 Revenue increased to $1,799,335 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from $153,136 in the comparable period of 2021, an increase of 1075%. This was driven by growth in number of customers and significant growth in the size of contracts.
 Gross Profit increased to $978,337 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 from a loss of $134,540 in the comparable period of 2021. This was primarily attributable to the increase in revenue and decrease in labor intensive contracts and an increase in our higher margin Satellite-as-a-Service business line.
 Operating Expenses increased to $3,242,783 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $385,174 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. This was primarily the result of the expansion of staff, the leasing of more space for expansion and a one-time non-cash expense of $1.2M.
 As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $10.4 million in cash.


March 31, 2022 Operational Highlights and Recent Developments


 We announced the upcoming launch of the LizzieSat™ aboard a NASA Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) rocket (wherein SpaceX and Northrop Grumman are contracted to launch to the orbiting laboratory). LizzieSat™ is scheduled and expected to be delivered to the International Space Station (ISS) later this year.
 We announced the successful completion of the LizzieSat™ (LS) Preliminary Design Review (PDR). A PDR ensures the design and basic system architecture are complete and that there is technical confidence the capability need can be satisfied within cost and schedule goals. A successful PDR means that a satellite is on track and development is progressing as planned.
 Over the last three months we rounded out our executive leadership team with the hiring of three key individuals with highly relevant industry experience including positions with Lockheed Martin, NASA, Blue Origin and others. These individuals include John Curry as Chief Mission Operations Officer, Teresa Burchfield as Chief Financial Officer and Gerry Schaafsma as Chief Sales and Revenue Officer.
 We continue to manufacture and deliver hardware to a broad range of customers including the Department of State, the Department of Defense, Northrop Grumman, Leidos, Aegis, Teledyne Marine, Bechtel, and L3Harris in areas that include launch vehicles, satellite hardware, and autonomous underwater vehicles.





“As we delivered on previously announced contracts, our revenues increased dramatically. We believe that we are well-positioned to compete with legacy space-based data providers and other emergent providers due to our vertical integration strategy that combines rapid production with flexible technology insertion points. While readying for launching numerous satellites over the next 12-24 months, we anticipate our backlog to continue to increase. The company, built on years of experience manufacturing for commercial, military and government customers, has positioned itself to become one of the leading companies in the low earth orbit (LEO) satellite industry. We believe the LizzieSat constellation of satellites will level the playing field by bringing space down to earth for everyone and making access easier for all consumers,” commented Carol Craig, Founder and CEO of Sidus Space.
