Arrival (NASDAQ:ARVL) stock is sliding on Thursday following the release of the company’s second-quarter earnings report.

For Q2, Arrival saw a loss of $89.6 million. That’s much wider compared to the $56.2 million loss the company reported in Q2 2021.

In the report, Arrival also noted that cash and cash equivalents at the end of Q2 totaled $512.6 million. The company has also set up an at-the-market (ATM) stock offering that will allow it to sell $300 million worth of shares.

Adding to the negative news is the company’s revenue warning for 2022. Arrival says it only expects to deliver 20 of its electric vans to customers in Q4 2022. As such, the company doesn’t expect to report revenue this year.

This isn’t the only recent bad news to come from Arrival. Last week, reports alleged that the company is delaying some of its other electric vehicle (EV) projects, specifically its electric cars and buses.

According to insiders, Arrival doesn’t have enough cash on hand right now to explore these other EV projects. The company hopes that it will generate enough revenue from its vans to resume its bus and car development later on.

ARVL stock is down 20% as of Thursday afternoon. Shares are also down 80% since the start of the year.
