LUGANO, Switzerland & WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., November 14th, 2022 – Energy Vault Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: NRGV) (“Energy Vault” or “the Company”), a leader in sustainable, grid-scale energy storage solutions, announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.
Robert Piconi, Chairman and CEO of Energy Vault, stated, “We made strong progress during the quarter across all commercial, operational and financial facets of our business. Customers are choosing Energy Vault given the innovative portfolio of solutions that address their needs across short and long duration storage, as well as addressing their complex requirements to optimize energy density, economics, and overall performance. During the quarter, we announced contract signings totaling 495 megawatt hours for our battery energy storage solutions for immediate delivery in 2023 with top tier customers. This highlights the readiness of our solutions and software capabilities, and more importantly, the trust that our customers have in us to deliver projects on-time and on-budget.
Additionally, we have received awards for approximately 2 gigawatt hours of energy storage solutions to address our customer’s immediate needs. This includes a 500 MWh short-duration battery storage project with Meadow Creek in Australia as previously announced, an 820 MWh short-duration battery storage project in Europe and our previously announced 440 MWh award with a large western utility. These projects mark our first entrance into the European market and our first shorter duration project to complement our long duration gravity projects in Australia, regions that we have seen increased demand for energy storage driven by supportive policy and macro events. I am also pleased to announce one of the first and largest utility-scale green hydrogen storage projects, for approximately 300 MWh of storage capacity with another large western utility. The introduction of green hydrogen into our technology portfolio further validates our technical differentiation with our energy management software platform and the market for hybrid short and long duration integrated systems.”
Mr. Piconi continued, “Looking ahead to the balance of 2022 and 2023, we will continue to scale our talent base and global infrastructure to enable commercial and operational execution for our customers. We will leverage, in a disciplined manner, our position as the only energy storage company offering a hardware agnostic portfolio of both short and long duration storage solutions, bringing innovative gravity, green hydrogen and hybrid solutions to the market for the first time.”

Non- GAAP measures
Energy Vault has provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP measures, for the historical period in the appendix hereto. A reconciliation of projected non-GAAP measures for the full-year 2022 has not been provided because certain information necessary to calculate such measures on a GAAP basis is unavailable or dependent on the timing of future events outside of our control. Therefore, because of the uncertainty and variability of the nature of the amount of future adjustments, which could be significant, the Company is unable to provide a reconciliation for these forward-looking non-GAAP measures without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure
We use adjusted EBITDA to complement our condensed consolidated statements of operations. Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure complements our GAAP net loss and such measure is useful to investors. The presentation of this non-GAAP measure is not meant to be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net loss as an indicator of our performance.
The following table provides a reconciliation from non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP measure (amounts in thousands):

Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP)$(17,211)$(4,914)$(184)$(12,575)
We present adjusted EBITDA, which is net loss excluding adjustments that are outlined in the quantitative reconciliation provided above, as a supplemental measure of our performance and because we believe this measure is frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. The items excluded from adjusted EBITDA are excluded in order to better reflect our continuing operations.
In evaluating adjusted EBITDA, one should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses similar to the adjustments noted above. Our presentation of adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by these types of adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss, operating loss, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.
Our adjusted EBITDA measure has limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:
it does not reflect our cash expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures, or contractual commitments;
it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
it does not reflect stock-based compensation, which is an ongoing expense;
although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and our adjusted EBITDA measure does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
it is not adjusted for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows;
it does not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations;
it does not reflect limitations on or costs related to transferring earnings from our subsidiaries to us; and
other companies in our industry may calculate this measure differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
Because of these limitations, adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business or as a measure of cash that will be available to use to meet our obligations. You
10

logo002a.jpg
should compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using adjusted EBITDA only supplementally.
