The Carbon Revolution Ltd (ASX: CBR) share price is sliding in morning trade, down 7.21% to $1.03 per share.

Below, we look at the carbon fibre wheel manufacturer's business update for the quarter ending 30 September (Q1 FY22).

What did Carbon Revolution report for Q1?

The Carbon Revolution share price is sliding today after the company reported a 28% quarter-on-quarter decrease in revenue. Q1 FY22 revenue came in at $6.2 million.

Revenue from Carbon Revolution's wheel sales was $5.9 million with $300,000 of revenue from engineering services and tooling.

The company said revenue was in line with its expectation for the full 2022 financial year, adding that "the planned inventory build-ahead is currently on track to support the expected second half weighting of FY22 sales".

According to the update, the 35% drop in the number of wheels sold in the past quarter (2,100) was largely due to semi-conductor chip shortages that have been hampering the global automotive industry. This saw the "GT500 wheel sales for model year 21 conclude earlier in Q1 FY22 than would otherwise have normally been expected".

Carbon Revolution said its customer orders and "their forecast profile", including Ferrari, indicated a lift in annual sales in the second half of the financial year.

The company has a cash balance of $63.9 million as at 30 September, saying the net cash outflow of $23.4 million in Q1 was in-line with its expectations.

Looking ahead, Carbon Revolution said with ongoing uncertainty about COVID-19's impact on the global car industry and semi-conductor chip shortages it would not provide sales guidance for FY22.

Looking at potential growth it added:

In contrast with this time last year, customers are now focusing on future product planning and the global move towards electric vehicles is an added factor driving this increasing engagement.
