ChargePoint (NYSE:CHPT) stock is sliding lower on Friday after the electric vehicle (EV) charging company released preliminary earnings data for the third quarter.

The bad news for CHPT stock comes from its preliminary revenue estimate of $108 million to $113 million. That would see it easily miss Wall Street’s expectation of $157.35 million in revenue for the quarter. Additionally, this is a drop from its prior guidance of $150 million to $165 million.

Rick Wilmer, the new president and CEO of CharegPoint, said the following about this lackluster revenue estimate:

“Our core markets of North America and Europe both came under pressure late in the third quarter, with revenue falling far short of expectations. Overall macroeconomic conditions, along with fleet and commercial vehicle delivery delays impacted anticipated deployments with government, auto dealership and workplace customers.”

What’s Next for CHPT Stock?

Investors will want to keep an eye on ChargePoint as it expects to release its full earnings report for Q3 on Dec. 6. That will provide traders with a better insight into the company’s fiscal state.
