I don’t need electrical car producer Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) to fail. Competitors within the EV area is an effective factor, and the extra automakers there are, the higher. But, MULN inventory is liable to going to zero. Together with that, Mullen Automotive’s existence as a viable enterprise enterprise is in peril.

Mullen Automotive can in all probability stave off whole share-value destruction for some time longer by enacting reverse inventory splits.

That tactic works till it doesn’t anymore. Ultimately, the opposite shoe will drop if Mullen Automotive can’t get its funds so as. Whereas I definitely don’t have a crystal ball, I simply can’t envision a contented ending for Mullen Automotive and its stakeholders.

Some Good Information for MULN Inventory Traders

To be truthful and balanced, I’ll begin off with a few constructive developments. First, MULN inventory stayed above the well-known Nasdaq alternate $1 minimal closing bid value requirement for 10 consecutive days.

I wouldn’t mud off the streamers and get together hats simply but, although. As I’m scripting this, Mullen Automotive shares are buying and selling at round 90 cents apiece. So, keep tuned as extra delisting threats could also be on the way in which.

The opposite piece of excellent information that I’d wish to relay to you is that Amerit Fleet Options has agreed to offer important fleet providers for Mullen Automotive’s autos. These providers embrace “nationwide service and guarantee work” to assist Mullen Automotive’s “industrial car lineup.”

That’s solely significant if Mullen Automotive is reporting an appropriate degree of car gross sales and income. So, let’s delve into the small print and see what’s actually happening beneath the hood with Mullen Automotive.

Mullen Has a Critical Money Burn Downside

I received’t deny that Mullen Automotive has buy orders for its autos, however this doesn’t appear to have helped the automaker’s prime and backside traces. As Eddie Pan noticed, Mullen reported zero {dollars} in income on its lately launched Type 10-Q.

Thomas Yeung has in contrast Mullen Automotive’s financials to a horror movie, and admittedly, I don’t blame him for making this comparability.

Together with having no income and due to this fact no income, Mullen Automotive is a fierce money burner. Consider it or not, the corporate’s whole working bills greater than doubled from $30.45 million in 2022’s first quarter to $67.89 million within the first quarter of 2023.

And, right here’s why it’s so essential to at all times learn monetary types. Mullen Automotive’s dropped a bomb with this revelation from the corporate’s Type 10-Q:

“[T]right here isn’t any assurance that the Firm can be profitable in acquiring the required funds to convey its product and repair choices to market and assist future operations. [This and other] components increase substantial doubt as to the Firm’s capability to proceed as a going concern.”

Now, that’s a effective how-do-you-do. In mild of this, I can’t fault Yeung for invoking the dreaded “b”-word: “As Mullen continues to exhaust its monetary choices, its newest 10-Q report hints at how near chapter the electrical car startup has gotten.”

MULN Inventory: Look, however Don’t Contact

I like any EV startup with a dream and an abundance of gumption. So, I’ll maintain rooting for Mullen Automotive till the bitter finish. Nonetheless, I refuse to disregard the corporate’s monetary details and circumstances. Due to this fact, I simply can’t convey myself to advocate an funding in Mullen Automotive.

On the finish of the day, it’s important to kind your personal conclusion about Mullen Automotive. Perhaps I’ll be confirmed unsuitable and the corporate will succeed past everybody’s wildest desires. Mullen’s “going concern” warning doesn’t appear to level in that course, although. Therefore, one of the best coverage for now could be to keep away from MULN inventory.
