Nikola (NASDAQ:NKLA) stock is falling hard on Tuesday after the electric vehicle (EV) company reported revenue that was nowhere close to Wall Street’s estimates.

Nikola’s first-quarter earnings report includes revenue of $7.5 million. That’s a far cry from the $15.79 million in revenue that Wall Street was hoping for during the quarter, and it’s also a drop from the $10.68 million reported in the same period of the year prior.

It’s worth noting that this drags down NKLA stock today despite the company’s adjusted EPS of -9 cents. That’s better than the -10 cents that Wall Street was expecting. It’s also narrower than the -22 cents from the same time last year.

Nikola president and CEO Steve Girsky said the following in the earnings report:

“We continue to move forward rapidly and execute our plans. And please keep that in mind – we are in the execution phase, not the planning or concepting phase. Last quarter, I talked about getting on the field with the first deliveries of our hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks. Today, we are executing plays, competing, and cultivating more green shoots as we expand upon current markets and enter new ones.”
