SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Volta Inc. (NYSE: VLTA, VLTA WS) (“Volta” or the “Company”), an industry-leading electric vehicle (“EV”) charging and media company, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

“Volta had a record quarter, and these results demonstrate the power of our differentiated business model,” said Vince Cubbage, Interim CEO. “By building not just a network of chargers, but a dual energy and digital advertising platform, we believe Volta can scale revenue even faster than the EV adoption curve – offering the quickest path to profitability and the highest revenue per station. I’ve been impressed by the exceptional work being done across Volta’s business and see tremendous opportunity ahead as the Company moves through its next stage of growth.”

Recent Key Company Highlights in 2022

Public Policy | City of Hoboken: Volta plans to install a mix of 25 DCFC and L2 public EV charging stalls for the City’s residents, annual visitors, and commuters over the next 18 months. The collaboration is a model for how EV charging infrastructure can be efficiently deployed within densely populated urban areas to maximize economic, health, and climate benefits and should position the Company well for Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) planning funds. Through its work with Hoboken, Volta also expects to grow its media impressions within the NY, NY Designated Market Area by nearly 20%, making the Volta Media™ Network even more attractive to advertisers.

Collaboration with Leading Shopper Intelligence Platform Catalina: By tapping into Catalina’s measurement services, Volta can directly determine incremental sales at the store level for retailers and advertisers that run campaigns on the Volta Media™ Network. The ability to report at this level signifies Volta as a digital-first, results driven media network and is expected to provide Volta with the ability to unlock more significant advertising deals.

Coca-Cola®: Coca-Cola and Volta Media completed a case study with Quotient, a leading digital media and promotions technology company, to prove out Return on Ad Spend (ROAS). The brands featured in the Volta campaign saw $2.5 million in attributable sales and a ROAS 56% higher than the average Digital Out-Of-Home ADUSA food and beverage campaign, demonstrating the measurable impact Volta campaigns can have on The Coca-Cola Company and other Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) brands.

Kroger: Volta plans to install charging stations at 16 Kroger locations in the Atlanta and Indianapolis areas, with plans to expand to Columbus, Cincinnati, Louisville, Nashville, Michigan, and Southern California throughout 2022. Kroger’s advertising sales team plans to sell Volta’s media inventory to its clients, unlocking another source of revenue for Volta and highlighting the power of Volta’s combined charging and media model to other retailers with advertising offerings.
