Allego, a Leading Pan-European Public EV Fast Charging Network, Announces Second Quarter 2022 Key Performance Metrics, and Exercise of Mega-E Purchase Option

  •  Allego exercised the purchase option relating to Mega-E. The purchase enhances the Company’s strategic focus on fast and ultra-fast chargers and the roll-out of its growth plans.
  • Second-quarter 2022 utilization rate1 nearly doubled to 9.0% from 4.6% in the same period in 2021, including Mega-E assets.
  • Total “green” energy sold during the quarter was 37.4 GWh, up 102.1% from the year-ago quarter.
  • The total number of sessions increased 66% to 2.3 million, compared to the prior-year quarter of 1.4 million.
  • The company’s secured backlog of approximately 1,100 sites, in combination with the company’s proprietary software, is expected to enhance visibility and profitability.
  • Allego expects to continue to benefit from a supportive regulatory and demand backdrop, as recently highlighted by the European Parliament signing a ban on the sale of Internal Combustion Engine (“ICE”) vehicles starting in 2035.

Allego N.V. (“Allego” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ALLG), a leading pan-European public electric vehicle fast-charging network, today announced its second-quarter 2022 key performance metrics, which are inclusive of Mega-E.

The Company’s second quarter 2022 utilization rate was 9.0% compared to 4.6% during the same period in 2021, representing a 94.9% increase, and equating to 4.5 sessions per ultra-charger per day. On a sequential basis from the first quarter of 2022, the utilization rate increased to 9.0% from 7.5%, representing a 19.2% increase.

The total number of sessions increased to 2.3 million, compared to the prior-year period of approximately 1.4 million. Total energy sold increased 102.1% to 37.4 GWh from 18.5 GWh. Allego-owned charging sessions increased to 1.9 million, compared to the prior-year period of about 1.0 million.

As of March 17, 2022, the Company consolidates the Mega-E assets and has now exercised the purchase option relating to Mega-E under the previously disclosed terms for approximately €33.0 million in cash. The combination has added more than 100 sites and nearly 770 charge ports, mainly fast-and ultra-fast, consistent with the Company’s strategic focus.

Mathieu Bonnet, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am very pleased to see the continued strength of our charging network as utilization rates increase, driven by expanding adoption of EVs throughout Europe, coupled with our strategic partnerships with OEMs, fleets, and premium retail locations, providing highly convenient access for consumers. The addition of Mega-E enhances Allego’s position in fast and ultra-fast chargers, and together with a 9% utilization and 99.5% up-time across our network, we provide a seamless experience for our customers.”

Allego continues to see significant tailwinds for its business, with Europe’s focus on energy independence and carbon reduction. This is highlighted by the announcement by the European Parliament on June 29, 2022, banning the sale of internal combustion engines (“ICE”) in cars and SUVs, effective in 2035. The ban should continue to drive the need for significant European investment in an EV charging infrastructure suitable to replace gas vehicles. Additionally, from January to May 2022, EV penetration rates in Europe remain more than three times higher relative to the United States1. Allego’s existing leadership across the continent, with a presence in 15 countries and over 33,000 charging ports, leaves the Company well-positioned to capitalize on this mega-trend and create significant long-term shareholder value.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had a secured backlog of about 1,100 sites signed for lease terms of 10 years or longer, including some 6,700 fast and ultra-fast charging ports. The Company’s proprietary Allamo and EV Cloud platforms are integral to evaluating and acquiring the most suitable locations, enriching customer relationships, and enhancing revenue visibility and profitability.

Mathieu Bonnet, the CEO, further commented, “Our strategic alliance with European suppliers has proven resilient as we have experienced few interruptions. Moreover, the power-purchase agreements that we are now securing on a long-term basis from renewable sources will significantly position Allego to control its variable costs by removing future volatility associated with energy prices. Combining these effective measures will enable us to deliver on our financial commitments and fortify our leading market position.”
