MILPITAS, Calif., June 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — View, Inc. (Nasdaq: VIEW, “View” or the “Company”), a leader in smart building platforms and technologies, today announced financial results for Q1 2022.
“We are pleased to announce our Q1 2022 results today which show continued momentum in driving industry adoption of smart glass. The first quarter represented more than 70% year-over-year revenue growth and puts us on target to achieve our expected full year revenue above $100 million for 2022,” said Dr. Rao Mulpuri, CEO of View.
“We are in the early innings of industry transformation in real estate, but the trends are now impossible to ignore. 21st century consumers demand new digital experiences and expect buildings to be healthy, sustainable, and smart. View and our customers are together setting the standard for the future of real estate,” said Dr. Mulpuri.
Q1 2022 Results
Q1 2022 revenue of $17 million represents a 74% year-over-year increase from Q1 2021 driven by continued traction of the newly introduced Smart Building Platform offering and growth of Smart Building Technologies products. View completed the installation of its smart glass in several signature projects including Uplands II (office) and Sven (multifamily residential). The Company announced several notable customer wins including Sorrento Gateway (life sciences), 100 Hood Park (office), The Eight (office), The Artise (office), and Nabr (multifamily residential).
Q1 2022 cost of revenues of $41 million represents a 12% year-over-year increase from Q1 2021 as View continues to benefit from economies of scale on higher revenues. The increase in cost of revenues was primarily driven by increased factory operating costs as the Company scaled its factory capacity in the second half of 2021 and costs associated with the Smart Building Platform, including loss accruals for new contracts, which were partially offset by lower levels of new post-installation support costs.
View incurred $20 million in Research and Development (“R&D”) expenses in Q1 2022, an increase of $3 million or 19% from Q1 2021. The Company incurred $43 million in Selling, General and Administrative (“SG&A”) expenses, an increase of $21 million or 98%, from Q1 2021. The increase in SG&A expenses includes an increase in non-cash, stock-based compensation of $8.3 million primarily relating to View’s business combination completed in March 2021. The increase was also related to additional expenses in accounting, legal and consulting fees associated with the financial restatement.
Full Year 2022 Outlook
Following strong annual growth in 2021 and continued momentum in Q1 2022, the Company expects to achieve full year 2022 revenues in the range of $100 million to $110 million, driven by volume growth, strong ASPs, and increased contribution from its Smart Building Platform and Smart Building Technologies products.

These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates, assumptions, projections, and management’s beliefs, that are subject to change. There can be no assurance that these forward-looking statements will be achieved; these statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties, and other factors, many of which are beyond View’s control and are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements. View’s business is subject to a number of risks, which are described more fully in View’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Such risks include, but are not limited to, (i) View’s ability to raise additional capital on acceptable terms or at all, (ii) View’s ability to timely regain compliance with The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC’s (“Nasdaq”) continued listing standards and maintain the listing of its securities on Nasdaq, (iii) View’s ability to execute on its business plans, including expected revenue growth, and (iv) the risk that View’s financial results as filed in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 may differ from the unaudited financial results presented in this communication.

Financial Information; Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The financial information and data contained in this press release is unaudited and does not conform to Regulation S-X. Accordingly, such information and data may not be included in, may be adjusted in or may be presented differently in, the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to be filed by View. This press release contains certain financial information and data that was not prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), including non-GAAP cost of revenues, non-GAAP research and development expense, non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expense, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA. These non-GAAP measures, and other measures that are calculated using such non-GAAP measures, are an addition to, and not a substitute for or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to any performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.
The Company presents these non-GAAP amounts because management believes they provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to View’s financial condition and results of operations, and they assist management and investors in comparing the Company’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis. View’s management uses these non-GAAP measures for trend analyses, for purposes of determining management incentive compensation and for budgeting and planning purposes. View believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating operating results and trends in and in comparing View’s financial measures with other similar companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. View’s management does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP.
However, there are a number of limitations related to the use of these non-GAAP measures and their nearest GAAP equivalents. For example, other companies may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, or may use other measures to calculate their financial performance, and therefore View’s non-GAAP measures may not be directly comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies.
Reconciliations from GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in the financial statements contained in this release.
