– Successfully Completed Public Listing, Securing Gross Proceeds of ~$1.0 billion –
– 2,270 Mile Test Drive Confirmed Market-Leading Performance and Technology –
– Hanford Facility Build Out on Track –
– FF 91 Production Launch Expected Q3 2022 –

Los Angeles, CA (May 6, 2022) - Faraday Future Intelligent Electric Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIE) (“FF,” “Faraday Future” or “the Company”), a California-based global shared intelligent electric mobility ecosystem company, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021. Results were delayed as a result of the previously announced Special Committee review.

“The third quarter of 2021 was eventful for Faraday Future as we completed our merger with PSAC and became a public company, ending the quarter well-capitalized with a strong balance sheet,” said Global CEO of Faraday Future Dr. Carsten Breitfeld. “We made strong progress building out the Hanford manufacturing facility and production area construction is advancing on schedule. We continued to make excellent progress with our supply chain partners in a challenging supply-chain environment. We significantly bolstered our management team with key hires who will help us navigate the challenging logistics climate, and strengthened other key areas in manufacturing, development, finance, and elsewhere.”

Dr. Breitfeld continued, “After quarter end, we marked our first four milestones toward SOP at the Hanford manufacturing facility. We remain confident that we will launch the FF 91 in the third quarter of 2022 and believe that Faraday Future is positioned to redefine the state-of-the-art in intelligent electrified mobility.”

Dr. Breitfeld added, “The Special Committee of independent Board members completed its previously announced review of past disclosures and allegations and submitted its findings and recommendations to the full Board. The Board accepted the findings and implementation of remediation actions is well underway. On behalf of the entire management team, I want to thank the Special Committee, our financial and legal advisors, and my fellow Board members for their hard work and for their commitment to holding the Company to the highest standards of ethics and conduct. I also want to thank all of my fellow employees, our suppliers, and our investors for their support and confidence. I believe that this review and the changes we are making will help us build a stronger, better company.”

Faraday Future continues to make progress towards the launch of the FF 91 and accomplishing our business plan, and made the following announcements during the three months ended September 30, 2021:

Completed its merger with Property Solutions Acquisition Corp. (“PSAC”), a special purpose acquisition company. FF’s common stock and warrants began trading on NASDAQ under the tickers "FFIE” and “FFIEW”, respectively, on July 22, 2021.
Completed a 2,270-mile testing and evaluation journey following the historic Route 66, a highway that crosses numerous U.S. states as it winds its way from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California.
Announced its plans to partner with Qmerit, a leader in green energy transformation with the largest nationwide network of certified electrical installers for EV charging stations, to support future FF 91 drivers in need of home charging stations and other future energy-related installations.
Hired Matt Tall as Vice President of Manufacturing. Mr. Tall is responsible for leading all facets of FF’s production and manufacturing, focusing on the Hanford, California manufacturing plant, where he oversees the final phases of the plant upgrade, installation of component tooling, hiring, and the production of the FF 91.
Hired Liu Yuchao as Senior Vice President of Supply Chain for FF’s operations in China. Mr. Yuchao will help FF take a solid step forward in promoting the production and delivery of the FF 91.

Added new leadership members to its growing team: including Senior Director of Energy Storage and Charging; Head of Software Engineering, ADAS, and Self Driving; Lead of Vehicle Quality.
Announced plans to increase its employee headcount significantly over the next 12 months following the merger with PSAC that closed in July 2021. Hiring has been focused on filling positions in the areas of manufacturing, engineering, supply chain, design, marketing, brand, sales, finance and accounting, and other areas, along with the potential for higher-level executive positions.
Hosted the first annual 919 Futurist Day co-creation festival at FF’s Headquarters in Los Angeles, CA. Hundreds of attendees representing FF users, partners, car enthusiasts as well as global FF employees and family members gathered to celebrate FF’s successes, products, technologies, people, innovation, and user-centric philosophy.
Outlined major milestones on the path to production for FF’s manufacturing facility in Hanford, CA, and provided periodic milestone and other progress updates including videos and livestreams on various public media channels and the FF app.

Subsequent to September 30, 2021, and through December 31, 2021, FF accomplished the following major milestones:
Completed the installation of pilot equipment in the pre-production build area of its Hanford, California facility. The Hanford manufacturing facility is approximately 1.1 million square feet and, once it is built out, is expected to have the capacity to support production of 10,000 vehicles per year. Based on the current timeline, FF management anticipates production at the Hanford facility will commence in the third quarter of 2022.
Received its final Certificate of Occupancy (“CO”) for a dedicated area for pre-production manufacturing at the facility in Hanford, California. The CO allowed FF to begin crucial construction activities, including the building of additional pre-production vehicles at the facility.
Started foundation construction for all remaining production areas in the Hanford facility, including body, propulsion, warehouse, and vehicle assembly. Interior foundation work in the production area is now essentially complete, and major mechanical systems, including electrical and plumbing, are being installed.
Announced program with Munro & Associates, which will serve as FF’s co-creation consultant and will assist with the production-readiness process of the FF 91 through comparative analysis and quality assessment.
Held a Community Day and Job Fair at the Hanford Civic Auditorium on November 3, 2021, and November 10, 2021, respectively.
Announced HSL Italia as Exterior Lighting Supplier. HSL Italia will work with the Company throughout the production process to ensure a premium and innovative exterior lighting display.

Subsequent to December 31, 2021, FF accomplished the following additional major milestones and made certain personnel and organizational changes:
Announced that Myoung Shin Co., Ltd., an automotive manufacturer headquartered in South Korea, has been contracted to manufacture Faraday Future’s second vehicle, the FF 81, with SOP scheduled for 2024.
Unveiled the first “production-intent” build of the FF 91. This marks Faraday Future’s manufacturing Milestone #4, pre-production builds for final engineering validation and certification, now referred to as production-intent vehicles.
Received dealer and distributor license from the State of California, for online national sales.
Signed the lease for FF’s flagship store in Beverly Hills, California, and confirmed the design firm for the store. The initial term of the lease shall be 126 months, with two five-year tenant extension options. In addition, FF announced the active search for a second flagship store in the U.S.
Appointed Susan Swenson as Executive Chairperson and Jordan Vogel as Lead Independent Director of the Board of Directors. FF’s Board of Directors consists of nine directors, five of whom are independent under applicable rules.
Announced that Mathias Hofmann became the new Head of Global Supply Chain after the retirement of Benedikt Hartmann effective February 25, 2022. Mathias comes to FF after a nearly 30-year career with BMW,

where he served as a Vice President with global responsibilities in purchasing and plant management. He has worked on four continents, including China, and was most recently Plant Director in Brazil. He has extensive experience in both plant operations and direct and indirect purchasing.
Appointed Becky Roof as Interim Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and engaged an affiliate of AlixPartners to accelerate the implementation of Special Committee recommendations including, but not limited to financial controls and material weakness remediation. Ms. Roof is a seasoned financial executive who has served in an interim CFO capacity at numerous public and private companies.
Announced 401 preorders as of March 31, 2022. Preorders are fully refundable, non-binding, paid deposits for the FF 91 Futurist Alliance Edition and/or the FF 91 Futurist vehicles available initially for sale to customers in the US and China. FF 91 Futurist Alliance Edition preorders require a $5,000 deposit for customers in the US and an RMB 50,000 deposit for customers in China. FF 91 Futurist preorders require a $1,500 deposit for customers in the US and an RMB 20,000 deposit for customers in China.

Operating expenses for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021, were $186 million compared to $18 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase is primarily due to an acceleration of costs to bring the Hanford manufacturing facility to full commercial production. Net loss was $304 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to a net loss of $33 million in the prior-year period. The increase in net loss is attributable to the significant increase in operating expenses, the loss relating to fair value measurement of related party notes payable, notes payable which the Company elected to account for using the fair value option, warrant liabilities, as well as loss on settlement of related party notes payable, notes payable, and vendor payables in trust.
Cash and cash equivalents were $666 million as of September 30, 2021. The cash balance as of March 31, 2022 was $276 million, which includes the repayment of a $97 million note and accrued interest on schedule.

The Company plans to host a conference call open to investors after it files its Q1 2022 results in mid-May.
