Redwire Corporation Reports Full Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Results

Significant new business wins, order volume and robust backlog demonstrate strength and breadth of Redwire’s breakout space infrastructure solutions

Company confirms no material misstatements or restatements of previously filed financial statements following completion of investigation

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 31, 2022 — Redwire Corporation (NYSE: RDW), a leader in mission critical space solutions and high reliability components for the next generation space economy, today announced results for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

Business Highlights

  • Total backlog1 increased to $271.6 million as of December 31, 2021, providing substantial visibility into future revenue growth.
  • Acquired Techshot Inc., a leader in on-orbit manufacturing, biotechnology in microgravity, and bioprinting needed for commercial space-based biotechnology and pharmaceutical research and development.
  • Contributed key technologies to 12 different launches and successful deployment of space capabilities during the year.
  • Delivered the first of three pairs of innovative and patented roll out solar array (ROSA) solar arrays that were successfully installed on the International Space Station (“ISS”), which will deliver an expected 30+% increase in aggregate power. This capability was also successfully utilized for the DART NASA planetary defense mission and is expected to be used for the planned Lunar Gateway.
  • Partnered with leading space companies on the new Orbital Reef project, a strategic next generation commercial ecosystem in Low Earth Orbit (“LEO”). The project is expected to utilize Redwire’s state of the art capabilities, including its ROSA technology, digital engineering, and microgravity manufacturing expertise.
  • Completed a critical milestone with a large-scale 3D printing test for the Archinaut One mission, significantly reducing the risk for the first-of-its kind robotics satellite assembly mission, which is expected to revolutionize the satellite manufacturing market. Robotic satellite assembly has the potential to expand mission capabilities and meaningfully reduce launch costs compared to traditional satellite launches.
  • Delivered the first set of wired cameras for the Artemis III Orion Camera System, an array of navigation cameras developed for NASA’s Orion spacecraft. The Orion next generation spacecraft is for deep space missions and is expected to carry the first woman, next man, and other explorers to sustainably explore the Moon's surface.

2021 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue increased $96.8 million, or 237%, to $137.6 million for 2021, from $40.8 million for the Successor 2020 Period2.
  • Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA1 were $61.5 million and $1.3 million, respectively, for 2021. Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA1 increased $1.6 million to $3.2 million for 2021, from $1.6 million for the Successor 2020 Period.
  • On March 25, 2022, the Adam Street Partners Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility was upsized from $5.0 million to $25.0 million, providing enhanced liquidity.


1 Total backlog, a key business measure, as well as Adjusted EBITDA and Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. See “Non-GAAP Financial Information” and the reconciliation tables included in this press release for details regarding the calculation of Total backlog, Adjusted EBITDA and pro forma Adjusted EBITDA.

2 The Successor 2020 Period, from February 10, 2020 (Company inception) through December 31, 2020, includes the results of Adcole, DSS, MIS, Roccor and LoadPath from their respective acquisition dates as the entities were acquired during the period.

“Redwire continues to deliver the foundational technologies for the present and future of space infrastructure.”, said Peter Cannito, Chairman and CEO. “Our strong heritage, world-class team of experts, market leading position in In Space 3D Printing Manufacturing and Biotechnology and a broad portfolio of patented space products give us a competitive edge in the market. Our position is bolstered by our Backlog, Revenue, and Adjusted EBITDA as well as significant future organic growth and potential targeted M&A opportunities. Despite the numerous challenges of the global COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 proved to be another important and successful year in our Company’s journey.”

As a purpose-built, innovative provider of space infrastructure and services, Redwire’s product suite is a focal point of the growing space economy. The Company was a key contributor of capabilities on 12 launches in 2021 and has already confirmed participation in 8 planned launches in 2022.

Redwire posted robust triple-digit revenue growth compared with 2020 and demonstrated agility and industry leadership in navigating the current economic environment. Redwire generated over 260% growth in Gross Profit. Increased costs associated with being a public company contributed to an increase in net loss of 328%. Additionally, Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA grew by 103%. This was a solid outcome given the various program delays throughout the year.

“In addition to our stellar organic growth, we are thrilled to have acquired Techshot Inc., to further advance Redwire’s unique positioning as the leader in on-orbit manufacturing and space commercialization. Techshot is the forerunner in space biotechnology, including game-changing In-Space 3D bioprinting capabilities, space biomedical research and plant science. With over a dozen payloads having flown, four of which are in current operations on the International Space Station, Techshot mirrors Redwire’s ‘Heritage + Innovation’ approach. Techshot has a history of proven flight heritage, sustainable revenue, and break-out intellectual property to fuel tremendous growth in the future. Combining Techshot’s leading position in commercial space biotechnology with Redwire’s leading position in on-orbit material manufacturing, adds significant scale and synergy to our commercial space offerings. This is a substantial step forward in our vision for people living and working in space and will generate significant value for our shareholders.”

2022 Guidance

For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022, Redwire expects sales to be in a range of approximately $165 million to $195 million and Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA3 to be in a range of approximately $8 million to $15 million.

Cannito concluded, “The opportunity of what we are building at Redwire is enormous and we are continuing to gain momentum in the marketplace. With launch costs continuing to decline, we anticipate an unprecedented expansion of space infrastructure. The global space industry is projected to generate more than $2 trillion in revenue by 2040, up from $420 billion in 2019. Redwire’s foundational technologies such as power generation, 3D printing, deployable structures, sensors, avionics, advanced payloads, space biotechnology and digital engineering are the building blocks necessary for the future space economy.”


3 Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. We are unable to provide guidance for net income (loss) or reconciliations to forward looking net income (loss) because we are unable to provide a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of certain reconciling items without unreasonable effort. This is due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, including. Thus, we are unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of the aforementioned forward looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely comparable forward looking U.S. GAAP financial measure because such information is not available. See “Non-GAAP Financial Information” for more information regarding Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA.
