– Official Rating from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) Higher than Expectations –
– FF 91 Performance Specifications Ahead of Targets –
– Milestone #6 Reached at ieFactory California at Hanford –
– S-1/A Effective, Significant Funding Agreements Completed –

Los Angeles, CA (November 21, 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, 2022.

“The third quarter marked a turning point for our company, and we are seeing positive momentum across our vehicle program and in our funding program. I am pleased to announce the achievement of manufacturing milestone #6, the completion of construction and equipment installation in vehicle assembly areas of our ieFactory California at Hanford. We also saw strong progress with FF 91 testing and validation programs, where key performance metrics of our FF 91 including vehicle range (EPA rating), acceleration, and braking are even better than we promised,” said Dr. Carsten Breitfeld, Global CEO of Faraday Future.

Dr. Breitfeld continued, “Our registration statement becoming effective allows us to tap into some of the financing agreements we entered into in recent months. We strengthened our finance leadership, appointed a new auditor, and we filed our third quarter financials on time despite these transitions. We have completed important funding agreements and are optimistic that we can put in place the additional funding we need to launch the FF 91. With that momentum, we are currently developing revised budgets and production plans, and hope to be in a position to announce the timing of delivering the FF 91 to users shortly after funding is secured.”

Faraday Future noted several key organizational and program developments during the quarter, including:
Announced a new financing facility which contemplates total potential funding of as much as $600 million in a senior secured convertible notes structure, with an initial $52 million of committed funds. FF later amended the facility agreement to allow it to demand the forced exercise of certain warrants in cash of up to $20 million, subject to certain conditions. Subsequently, an additional $60 million was committed under the facility on October 26, 2022.
Announced its sponsorship and attendance at the 2022 Pebble Beach Concours d ‘Elegance. FF’s flagship FF 91 Futurist was available for demo rides and made a special appearance on the Concept Lawn on August 21, 2022.
Announced the FF 91 Futurist, the Ultimate Intelligent TechLuxury EV, was officially certified to have a robust rating of 381 miles of EV range from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a significant increase from the Company’s previous estimate of 333 miles.
Announced an agreement relating to its governance dispute with FF Top, including changes in the Company’s board membership and size, and other changes. Mr. Adam He and Mr. Chad Chen were appointed to the Board of Directors.

Subsequent to September 30, 2022, the following events and milestones were noted:
Appointed Yun Han as Chief Accounting Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), effective October 25, 2022. Ms. Han was most recently Senior Vice President and Chief Accounting Officer of Romeo Power, Inc., and spent over 13 years with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”). Ms. Han replaced Becky Roof, who had served as Interim CFO until October 12, 2022.
Appointed Mazars USA LLP (“Mazars”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm as of and for the year ending December 31, 2022, effective October 28, 2022. Mazars is an independent member firm of Mazars Group, an international audit, tax, and advisory organization operating in over 90 countries.
Announced a definitive agreement for a new standby equity line of credit (“ELOC”) with an affiliate of Yorkville Advisors Global, LP (“Yorkville”), with an initial commitment of $200 million which can be increased up to $350 million at the Company’s option.
Announced 369 preorders as of November 17, 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 U.S. and China. FF 91 Futurist Alliance Edition preorders require a $5,000 deposit for customers in the U.S.

and a CNY 50,000 deposit for customers in China. FF 91 Futurist preorders require a $1,500 deposit for customers in the U.S. and a CNY 20,000 deposit for customers in China.
Announced the California Air Resources Board (“CARB”) has certified the FF 91 Futurist as a zero-emissions vehicle (“ZEV”). The ZEV program is part of CARB's Advanced Clean Cars package of coordinated standards that control smog-causing pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions of passenger vehicles in California.

Testing and certification of the FF 91 continues, with EPA range and CARB emission certification results recently received. Other official and non-official performance specifications were recently updated. While subject to further updates, the table below summarizes recent figures as compared to internal FF targets.


Faraday Future reported an operating loss of approximately $81 million during the three months ended September 30, 2022, as compared to an operating loss of approximately $186 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021. Net loss decreased to approximately $103 million during the three months ended September 30, 2022, as compared to approximately $304 million net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2021.  
During the three months ended September 30, 2022 spending was focused on completing the final stages of the ieFactory California manufacturing facility in Hanford, California and production and manufacturing tooling, and engineering, testing, certification and validation capabilities. Such activities are less costly relative to the activities completed in the three months ended September 30, 2021. The decrease in operating loss was also driven by reduced expenses resulting from deferred purchases of components and parts, and certain other cost reduction efforts, including a slowdown in program development relating to future electric vehicle models, and as a result of reduced accruals associated with certain Company litigation and loss on disposal of property and equipment relating to the abandonment of certain FF 91 program assets. 
Total assets on September 30, 2022, were $541 million, which include $32 million of cash, compared to $907 million total assets on December 31, 2021. Total liabilities were approximately $253 million, versus approximately $340 million on December 31, 2021. Since inception, the Company has incurred cumulative losses from operations and negative cash flows from operating activities, and the Company reported an accumulated deficit of approximately $3.3 billion as of September 30, 2022. The Company expects to continue to generate significant operating losses for the foreseeable future as we continue to incur expenses before generating meaningful revenue.
