The Novonix Ltd (ASX: NVX) share price has soared 10% in today’s trading session.

The most immediate catalyst that could explain today’s bullish price action can be traced back to late last week.

The battery materials and technology company released its quarterly report last Friday which initially saw shares in the company get sold down.

However, investors seem to have changed their tune after digesting the company’s report over the weekend.

Novonix share price recovers following quarterly report

Novonix released its quarterly activities and cash flow report to the market last Friday.

Initially, the company’s report was greeted with investors selling down shares in Novonix.

However, Novonix also provided investors with a recap of its recent notable milestones.

In particular, the company highlighted the purchase of its new facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Novonix noted the new facility will provide the company with 400,000 square feet of additional space, boosting production by more than 8,000 tonnes of anode material each year.

Novonix also highlighted strong revenue growth and expansion of hardware sales and service offerings for the quarter.

The company noted $2.03 million in receipts from customers, compared to $1.28 million in the prior quarter.

As of 30 June 2021, Novonix also reported a cash balance of $136.6 million.
