Dennis Kish, EVgo’s Chief Operating Officer, appointed President to manage consolidated operations, business development, marketing and technology functions

EVgo Inc. (Nasdaq: EVGO) (“EVgo” or the “Company”), one of the nation’s largest public fast charging networks for electric vehicles (EVs), today announced certain preliminary financial and operating results for fiscal year 2023. The Company announced preliminary 2023 throughput of approximately 130 gigawatt-hours (“GWh”). Utilization on the EVgo network in December 2023 was over 19% up from 15% in September 2023. EVgo ended 2023 with over 3,500 stalls in operation or under construction, including EVgo eXtend™ stalls.

EVgo anticipates reporting full year 2023 financial and operating results that meet or exceed the guidance ranges provided by the Company on November 8, 2023. The date and call details for EVgo’s fourth quarter and full year 2023 earnings call will be announced at a later date.

EVgo also announced today a simplified organizational structure under which the Company’s business development, marketing and technology functions will be streamlined and consolidated with operations, reporting to Dennis Kish, EVgo’s Chief Operating Officer, who in connection with this organizational realignment has been appointed President. Ivo Steklac, Chief Technology Officer, and Tanvi Chaturvedi, Chief Revenue Officer, will be departing the Company. Mr. Steklac will serve as a strategic advisor to the Company during a transition period and will depart during 2024. Ms. Chaturvedi is expected to remain in her role at EVgo through the end of February 2024.

The organizational realignment is designed to allow EVgo to focus on growing its core public charging network business, achieve operational efficiencies, improve the Company’s cost structure and accelerate progress toward EVgo’s growth and profitability goals.

“EVgo has continued to drive impressive throughput growth on our network and top-line growth across the Company as we remain relentlessly focused on delivering the ultimate customer experience and highest quality fast-charging solutions for EV drivers,” said Badar Khan, Chief Executive Officer of EVgo. “We believe this realignment and resource optimization will allow EVgo to become leaner and more focused on our owned and operated public charging network and will position us for acceleration towards achieving profitability targets while driving superior shareholder returns in the long run.”

Mr. Khan continued, “During his tenure at EVgo, Dennis has built a growth engine that has helped us to accelerate our deployments while making substantial enhancements to the customer experience. Given this track record, I am confident he is well positioned to take on this expanded role. Ivo was the founder of the tech program at EVgo and established EVgo as a technology leader in the EV charging space. We are grateful Ivo is staying to assist with a smooth transition and thankful for his contributions to EVgo’s success. We thank Tanvi for her contributions to EVgo and wish her well in her future endeavors.”
