TWIN VEE POWERCATS, CO. Management report and analysis of the financial situation and operating results. (Form 10-K)

The following discussion, which focuses on our results of operations, contains
forward-looking information and statements. Actual events or results may differ
materially from those indicated or anticipated, as discussed in the section
entitled "Forward Looking Statements." The following discussion of our financial
condition and results of operations should also be read in conjunction with our
financial statements and notes to financial statements contained elsewhere in
this Annual Report on Form 10-K.



Company Overview


We are a designer, manufacturer and marketer of recreational and commercial
power catamaran boats. We believe our company has been an innovator in the
recreational and commercial power catamaran industry. We currently have 10
gas-powered models in production ranging in size from our 24-foot, dual engine,
center console to our newly designed 40-foot offshore 400 GFX. Our twin-hull
catamaran running surface, known as a symmetrical catamaran hull design, adds to
the Twin Vee ride quality by reducing drag, increasing fuel efficiency, and
offering users a stable riding boat. Twin Vee's home base operations in Fort
Pierce Florida is a 7.5-acre facility with several buildings totaling over
75,000 square feet. We employed approximately 120 people at December 31, 2021,
some of whom have been with our company for over twenty years.



We have organized our business into three operating segments: (i) our
gas-powered boat segment which manufactures and distributes gas-powered boats;
(ii) our electric-powered boat segment which is developing fully electric boats,
through our wholly owned subsidiary, Forza X1, Inc., a Delaware corporation
("Forza") and (iii) our franchise segment which is developing a standard product
offering and will be selling franchises across the United States through our
wholly owned subsidiary, Fix My Boat, Inc., a Delaware corporation.



Our gas-powered boats allow consumers to use them for a wide range of
recreational activities including fishing, diving and water skiing and
commercial activities including transportation, eco tours, fishing and diving
expeditions. We believe that the performance, quality and value of our boats
position us to achieve our goal of increasing our market share and expanding the
power catamaran boating market. We currently primarily sell our boats through a
current network of 19 independent boat dealers in 23 locations across North
America and the Caribbean who resell our boats to the end user Twin Vee
customers. We continue recruiting efforts for high quality boat dealers and seek
to establish new dealers and distributors domestically and internationally to
distribute our boats as we grow our production and introduce new models. Our
gas-powered boats are currently outfitted with gas-powered outboard combustion
engines.



Due to the growing demand for sustainable, environmentally friendly electric and
alternative fuel commercial and recreational vehicles, our wholly owned
subsidiary, Forza X1, Inc., is designing and developing a line of
electric-powered catamaran boats ranging in size from 18-feet to 28-feet.
Forza's initial two models, the FX1 Dual Console and FX1 Center Console, are
being designed to be 24-foot in length, have an 8' beam or width and utilize a
catamaran hull surface to reduce drag and increase run times. The initial launch
of FX1 will include our proprietary single electric outboard motor. Both FX1
models are being designed with advanced high-powered, liquid-cooled battery
packs that will be provided by the third-party supplier with whom we have
entered into a five year supply agreement and a vehicle control unit with
proprietary control software all integrated into a 22" master control touch
screen that will be used to control most functions of the boat. We have also
filed three design and four utility patent applications with the U.S. Patent and
Trademark Office relating to, among other things, our propulsion system being
developed and boat design.


In September of 2021 launched our wholly owned subsidiary, Fix My Boat Inc. Fix
My Boat, will be the first nationally branded, mobile marine service company
utilizing a franchise model for marine mechanics across the country.



During the second half of 2021 we shifted our focus from our IPO efforts to
expanding our production. As we moved toward our goal of more than doubling
production from one boat a week during the business slowdown in the first half
of 2020 due to the COVID pandemic, to four boats per week, our operating
expenses increased. More specifically, our headcount increased as we hired
additional production employees and midlevel managers resulting in higher
salaries and wages. We are continuing to employ higher qualified production and
administrative staff to increase our productivity, efficiencies, and quality
controls. We have also invested heavily in facility upgrades, additional
equipment and molds, again in the efforts to increase our production output
and
quality.

Financial Condition


Our consolidated balance sheet indicates a strong financial position as of
December 31, 2021. We finished the year with revenue up 43% over the prior year,
and we saw our working capital increase by approximately $10.5 million for the
year ended 2021, primarily resulting from our IPO on July 23, 2021. Our cash,
cash equivalents and marketable securities were $13.0 million at December 31,
2021. Our property, plant, and equipment along with prepaid expenses went up
notably, as we have invested in additional boat molds for new model, equipment
to support our increased production levels, and leasehold improvements to
improve the quality of our products.



While we have largely return to normal operations, the COVID-19 pandemic
continues to cause challenges. During fiscal 2021, we experienced supply chain
disruptions and an overall increase in the price of raw materials and other
components used in our production. We also incurred higher labor costs and
challenges to fill open positions due to a highly competitive job market.
Additionally, we experienced periodic operational disruptions as our employees
contracted or were potentially exposed to COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to
predict the impact the pandemic may have on our future results of operations or
financial condition.

Net Sales and Cost Sales



Our net sales increased $4,710,551, or 43% to $15,774,170 for the year ended
December 31, 2021 from $11,063,619 for the year ended December 31, 2020. We
attribute the large increase in net sales to a strengthening economy during 2021
compared to 2020. During the first half of 2020, we were impacted significantly
by COVID-19, during the 3rd quarter of 2020 we started to see a rebound in sales
as the economy started to strengthen. The number of boats sold during fiscal
year ended December 31, 2021 increased 27% over the number of our boats sold
during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, due not only to the
strengthening economy over 2020, but also our increased production plan that we
focused on during the second half of 2021. Additionally, we have increased our
sale prices to help offset the increases in operating expenses, which includes
increased labor cost, described below, in addition to increased costs of
production supplies to protect against supply chain shortages. Our average
revenue per unit for the year ended December 31, 2021 is up approximately 12%
over revenue per unit for the year ended December 31, 2020. The average revenue
per unit increase, is not only due to our increase in sales prices, we also
attribute this increase to a shift in our model mix. Early in 2021, we
discontinued our 19-foot model, which equaled approximately 5% of our sales in
the previous year. We further saw a decrease in our 24-foot model over the prior
year, while our larger models all saw increases.



Gross Profit



Gross profits increased by $1,501,483, or 31% to $6,275,786 for the year ended
December 31,2021 from $4,774,303 for the year ended December 31, 2020. Gross
profit as a percentage of sales, for the year ended December 31, 2021 and 2020
was 40% and 43% respectively. We attribute the 3% decline in gross profit
percentage to increased cost of raw materials and purchased components. We
anticipate continued pressure on our gross profit percentage due to price
increases on raw materials and purchased components.

Total Operating Expenses


Our total operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 were
$7,906,507 and $4,053,469 respectively. Operating expenses as a percentage of
sales were 50% compared to 37% in the prior year.



Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by approximately 98%, or
$853,676 to $1,726,345 for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to
$872,669 for the year ended December 31, 2020. The large portion of the increase
resulted from expenses totaling $332,910 incurred from being publicly traded
company, which we did not incur in the prior year including, directors and
officers insurance, filing fees, legal expenses and investor relations costs.
Our repairs and maintenance increased $168,047 or 168%, primarily due to
equipment repairs and increased garbage disposal for our increased production
levels. We also incurred significant increases our liability insurance and
workers compensation insurance totaling $89,761, an increase of 76%, due to our
increased revenue levels and increased wages. Numerous other items make up the
remaining $262,958 of increased selling, general and administrative expense
increase.



Salaries and wages increased by approximately 88%, or $2,531,826 to $5,389,599
for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to $2,857,773 for the year ended
December 31, 2020. The increase in salaries and wages of $2,531,826 was the
result of aggressively ramping up of production, which required increasing our
production and adding mid-level staff. Included in salaries and wages for the
year ended December 31, 2021 was a charge for non-cash stock-based compensation
expense of $309,832 due to the issuance of options to employees. We have also
incurred production and executive bonus expense of $560,299 for the year ended
December 31, 2021 compared to $168,304 for the year ended December 31, 2020, an
increase of $391,995, as a result of meeting our 2021 production objectives. The
remaining increase of salaries and wages during the year ended December 31, 2021
was associated with payroll taxes and benefits.



Professional fees increased by 128%, or $213,630 to $380,929 for the year ended
December 31, 2021, compared to $167,299 for the year ended 2020. This increase
was primarily due to the additional costs we incurred associated with being a
public company and included an increase in audit, legal and related consulting
fees in order to fulfill our public company SEC reporting obligations.



Depreciation expense for the year ended December 31, 2021 increased by 27%, or
$42,795 to $198,523 for the year ended December 31, compared to $155,728 in
December 31, 2020. During the year ended December 31, 2021 we made significant
investments in equipment, leasehold improvements and boat molds that resulted in
an increased our depreciation expense.



Research and design expenses for the year ended December 31, 2021has been $211,111
compared to $0for the year ended December 31, 2020. These expenses are associated with our development of our electric propulsion system for Forza X1.



Other income increased by 38%, or $169,469 to $619,712 for the year ended
December 31, 2021, compared to income of $450,243 for the year ended, 2020. The
increase in other income is primarily the result of $608,224 in government grant
income associated with our PPP loan that was recognized in 2021, lower interest
expense, and a gain from insurance recovery net of loss on disposal of assets of
$434,724. This was offset by a loss on the disposal of assets of $254,600 in
2021 and the forgiveness of our PPP loan in 2020.



Net Loss



Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $1,011,009, compared to net
income of $1,171,077 for the year ended December 31, 2020. We have spent much of
2021 assembling the tools and people necessary to increase production levels.
While our revenue levels increased, our expenses also increased. That coupled
with the additional expenses associated with being a public company and our
research and development efforts for our electric boat division, resulted in a
net loss for 2021. With these investments, we are building the foundation for
our future, not only for our gas powered boats, but also for our electric boat
division. We continue to deal with the fallout of the global pandemic, as well
as the impact of additional costs of growth, but are encouraged by our continued
increase in revenue. Basic and dilutive loss per share of common stock for the
year ended December 31, 2021, ($0.19) compared to basic and dilutive income per
share of common stock for the year ended December 31, 2020, $0.29.



Cash and capital resources

A primary source of funds for the year ended December 31, 2021 was net cash
received from our initial public offering. Our primary use of cash was related
to funding the expansion of our operations through capital improvements, adding
staff and increasing inventory levels to meet the increase in demand for our
products. With uncertainty on component availability, prolonged lead time and
rising prices, we have been adding to our inventory far earlier than previous
years.


The following table provides selected financial data about us at December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

As of December 31, 2021, we had sufficient cash and cash equivalents to meet
ongoing expenses for at least twelve months from the date of the filing of this
Annual Report on Form 10-K. As of December 31, 2021, we had $13,039,399 of cash,
cash equivalents and marketable securities, total current assets of $13,073,346,
and total assets of $20,599,184. Our total liabilities were $3,899,484. Our
total liabilities were comprised of current liabilities of $2,155,420 which
included accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $1,657,675, contract
liability of $14,100 due to affiliated companies of $115,043 and current portion
of operating lease right of use liability of $368,602, and long-term liabilities
of $1,744,064. As of December 31, 2020, we had $891,816 of cash and cash
equivalents, total current assets of $1,834,942 and total assets of $4,504,566.
Our total current liabilities were $1,440,067 and total liabilities of
$2,955,726 which included long-term operating lease liabilities for the lease of
our facility.



We believe that our cash and cash equivalents will provide sufficient resources
to finance operations for the next 12 months. In addition to cash, cash
equivalents and marketable securities, we anticipate that we will be able to
rely, in part, on cash flows from operations in order to meet our liquidity and
capital expenditure needs in the next year.

activities was $1,947,539 compared to $364,648 in cash flow provided from
operating activities during the year ended December 31, 2020. We have increased
inventory levels by $913,510, due to supply chain delays that continue to impact
lead time and parts availability. Prepaid expenses and other current assets
increased by $903,406, primarily due to Directors and Officers Insurance being
paid upfront. Our net loss from operation was $1,011,009, was decreased by
non-cash expenses of approximately $1,200,065, primarily due government grant
income of $608,224, stock-based compensation of $309,832, change of right-of-use

Approximately, $6,096,562 was invested in marketable securities and $1,940,702
was used to purchase property and equipment. The majority of the investment for
property and equipment included $652,229 for new boat model molds, $557,324 for
building roof repairs and ventilation system improvements, $357,935 for new
production equipment, $164,000 for electric boat tooling and $101,984 for

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND SIGNIFICANT JUDGMENTS AND ESTIMATES

We believe that several accounting policies are important to understanding our
historical and future performance. We refer to these policies as "critical"
because these specific areas generally require us to make judgments and
estimates about matters that are uncertain at the time we make the estimate, and
different estimates-which also would have been reasonable-could have been used,
which would have resulted in different financial results.



Our management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of
operations is based on our consolidated financial statements, which have been
prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The preparation of our consolidated
financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the
reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses and related
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, we
evaluate our estimates based on historical experience and make various
assumptions, which management believes to be reasonable under the circumstances,
which form the basis for judgments about the carrying values of assets and
liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may
differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.



The notes to our consolidated financial statements contained herein contain a summary of our significant accounting policies. We consider the following accounting policies to be essential to understanding the results of our operations:



Revenue Recognition



The Company recognizes its revenue in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606 which was adopted at the beginning of fiscal year 2018 using the modified retrospective method. The Company did not recognize any cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings upon adoption, as the effect was insignificant.

Payment received for the future sale of a boat to a customer is recognized as a
customer deposit, which is included in contract liabilities on the balance
sheet. Customer deposits are recognized as revenue when control over promised
goods is transferred to the customer.



Use of Estimates



The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles
generally accepted in the United States "U.S. GAAP" requires management to make
estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial
statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Included in those
estimates are assumptions about allowances for inventory obsolescence, useful
life of fixed assets, warranty reserves and bad-debt reserves.



Inventories



Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value using the
first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. Net realizable value is defined as sales
price less cost of completion, disposable and transportation and a normal profit
margin. Production costs, consisting of labor and overhead, are applied to
ending finished goods inventories at a rate based on estimated production
capacity. Excess production costs are charged to cost of products sold.
Provisions have been made to reduce excess or obsolete inventories to their
net
realizable value.

  Table of Contents


Impairment of long-lived assets



Management assesses the recoverability of its long-lived assets when indicators
of impairment are present. If such indicators are present, recoverability of
these assets is determined by comparing the undiscounted net cash flows
estimated to result from those assets over the remaining life to the assets' net
carrying amounts. If the estimated undiscounted net cash flows are less than the
net carrying amount, the assets would be adjusted to their fair value, based on
appraisal or the present value of the undiscounted net cash flows.



Product Warranty Costs


As required by FASB ASC Topic 460, Guarantees, the Company includes the following information applicable to its product warranties.



The Company accrues for warranty costs based on the expected material and labor
costs to provide warranty replacement products. The methodology used in
determining the liability for warranty cost is based upon historical information
and experience. The Company's warranty reserve is calculated as the gross sales
multiplied by the historical warranty expense return rate.



Leases



The Company adopted FASB Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No.
2016-02, Leases ("Topic 842"), using the modified retrospective adoption method
with an effective date of January 1, 2019. This standard requires all lessees to
recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability, initially measured at the
present value of the lease payments.



Under Topic 842, the Company applied a dual approach to all leases whereby the
Company is a lessee and classifies leases as either finance or operating leases
based on the principle of whether or not the lease is effectively a financed
purchase by the Company. Lease classification is evaluated at the inception
of
the lease agreement.



Paycheck Protection Program



U.S. GAAP does not contain authoritative accounting standards for forgivable
loans provided by governmental entities to a for-profit entity. Absent
authoritative accounting standards, interpretative guidance issued and commonly
applied by financial statement preparers allows for the selection of accounting
policies amongst acceptable alternatives. Based on the facts and circumstances,
the Company determined it most appropriate to account for the Paycheck
Protection Program ("PPP") loan proceeds as an in-substance government grant by
analogy to International Accounting Standards 20 "(IAS 20)", Accounting for
Government Grants and Disclosure of Government Assistance. Under the provisions
of IAS 20, "a forgivable loan from government is treated as a government grant
when there is reasonable assurance that the entity will meet the terms for
forgiveness of the loan." IAS 20 does not define "reasonable assurance";
however, based on certain interpretations, it is analogous to "probable" as
defined in FASB ASC Subtopic 450-20-20 under U.S. GAAP, which is the definition
the Company has applied to its expectations of PPP loan forgiveness. Under IAS
20, government grants are recognized in earnings on a systematic basis over the
periods in which the Company recognizes costs for which the grant is intended to
compensate (i.e., qualified expenses). Further, IAS 20 permits for the
recognition in earnings either (1) separately under a general heading such as
other income, or (2) as a reduction of the related expenses. The Company has
elected to recognize government grant income separately within other income to
present a clearer distinction in its financial statements between its operating

Deferred income taxes and valuation allowance



The Company accounts for income taxes under ASC 740 "Income Taxes." Under the
asset and liability method of ASC 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are
recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between
the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and
their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured
using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in
which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The
effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is
recognized in income in the period the enactment occurs. A valuation allowance
is provided for certain deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that
the Company will not realize tax assets through future operations.
