FLUENCE ENERGY, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
1.    Organization and Operations
Fluence Energy, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“the Company”), was formed on June 21, 2021. We conduct our business operations through Fluence Energy, LLC and its direct and indirect subsidiaries. Fluence Energy, LLC was formed on June 30, 2017 as a joint venture between Siemens Industry, Inc. (“Siemens Industry”), an indirect subsidiary of Siemens AG (“Siemens”), and AES Grid Stability, LLC (“AES Grid Stability”), an indirect subsidiary of the AES Corporation (“AES”), and commenced operations on January 1, 2018. We refer to Siemens Industry and AES Grid Stability as the “Founders” in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Report”).
Fluence Energy, LLC, along with its wholly owned subsidiaries, is primarily engaged in the construction and sale of battery-based energy storage products and providing operational services and artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled digital applications (“Fluence IQ”) for renewables and storage throughout the world, including the Americas, EMEA, and Asia Pacific regions. Except where the context clearly indicates otherwise, “Fluence,” “we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company” refers to Fluence Energy, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries.
The Company’s chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) is its Chief Executive Officer. The Company’s CODM reviews financial information on a condensed consolidated basis for purposes of making operating decisions, allocating resources, and evaluating financial performance. As such, the Company has determined that it operates in one operating segment, which corresponds to one reportable segment.
QFH’s Investment in Fluence Energy, LLC
On December 27, 2020, Fluence Energy, LLC entered into an agreement with QIA Florence Holdings LLC (“QFH” or the “Blocker Company”) for a $125.0 million investment.

At September 30, 2021, the investment was recognized at carrying value within mezzanine equity on the consolidated balance sheets. As part of the transactions related to our initial public offering closed on November 1, 2021, QFH elected to convert their Class B units to the common stock of Fluence Energy Inc., which is a conversion available to all of the holders of Fluence Energy, LLC Class A and Class B units. Accordingly, as of March 31, 2022, no mezzanine equity is recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

The net proceeds to the Company from the IPO were $935.8 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses paid by the Company.
Immediately following the consummation of the Transactions:

2.    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates
Principles of Accounting and Consolidation
As the sole managing member of Fluence Energy, LLC, Fluence Energy, Inc. operates and controls all the business and affairs of Fluence Energy, LLC and, through Fluence Energy, LLC and its direct and indirect subsidiaries, conducts the Company’s business. Fluence Energy, LLC is a variable interest entity, of which the Fluence Energy, Inc. beneficially owns a 31.6% interest as of March 31, 2022. For accounting purposes, Fluence Energy, Inc. is considered the primary beneficiary and therefore consolidates the results of Fluence Energy, LLC and its direct and indirect subsidiaries. Prior to the IPO, Fluence Energy, Inc. had no operations and had no asset or liabilities. Accordingly, financial results, balances, and other information included herein for periods prior to the IPO are reflective of Fluence Energy, LLC.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) and under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Fluence Energy Inc. and its subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Non-Controlling Interest
The non-controlling interest on the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss represents the portion of earnings or loss attributable to the economic interest in Fluence Energy, LLC, held by the Founders. For the six months ended March 31, 2022, the net loss of Fluence Energy, LLC prior to the date of the Transactions has been attributed to the non-controlling interest, and the net loss of Fluence Energy, LLC subsequent to the date of the Transactions has been allocated between Fluence Energy, Inc. and the non-controlling interest based on the respective ownership percentages of Fluence Energy, LLC held by Fluence Energy, Inc. and the Founders. Non-controlling interest on the condensed consolidated balance sheets represents the portion of net assets of the Fluence Energy, LLC attributable to the Founders, based on the portion of the LLC Interests owned by such shareholders. As of March 31, 2022, the non-controlling interest was 68.4%.
Unaudited Interim Financial Information
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2022, and for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 are unaudited. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements included in our 2021 Annual Report. In our opinion, such unaudited financial statements reflect all adjustments, including normal recurring items, that are necessary for the fair statement of the Company’s financial position as of March 31, 2022, the results of its operations for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, and its cash flows for the six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. The financial data and other information disclosed in these notes related to the three and six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 are also unaudited. The results for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year ending September 30, 2022 and 2021, any other interim periods, or any future year or period. The balance sheet as of September 30, 2021 included herein was derived from the audited financial statements as of that date. Certain disclosures have been condensed or omitted from the interim financial statements.
For a complete description of our significant accounting policies, refer to Note 2 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates to the audited consolidated financial statements included in our 2021 Annual Report. We include herein certain updates to those policies.
Reclassification
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified from “Cost of goods and services” to “Sales and marketing” and “General and administrative” to conform to current period presentation on the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

Fair Value Measurements
The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities reflects management’s estimate of amounts that the Company would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The following fair value hierarchy, defined by ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements, is used to classify assets and liabilities based on the observable inputs and unobservable inputs used to value the assets and liabilities:
Level 1—Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date. Active markets are those in which transactions for the asset or liability occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.
Level 2—Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date. Level 2 inputs include those financial instruments that are valued using models or other valuation methodologies. These models are primarily industry-standard models that consider various assumptions, including quoted prices, time value, volatility factors, and current market and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, as well as other relevant economic measures. Substantially all of these assumptions are observable in the marketplace throughout the full term of the instrument, can be derived from observable data or are supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the marketplace.
Level 3—Pricing inputs include significant inputs that are generally less observable from objective sources. These inputs may be used with internally developed methodologies that result in management’s best estimate of fair value from the perspective of a market participant. The Company does not have significant recurring Level 3 fair value measurements.
The Company’s cash equivalents include term deposits with original maturity of less than three months and are recorded at amortized cost. Fair value of cash equivalents approximates the carrying amount using Level 2 inputs. The carrying amounts of trade receivables, accounts payable and short-term debt obligations approximate fair values due to their short maturities using Level 2 inputs.

Loss per Share
Basic net loss per share of Class A common stock is computed by dividing net loss attributable to Class A common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share of Class A common stock is computed by adjusting the net loss available to Class A common stockholders and the weighted-average shares of Class A common stock outstanding to give effect to potentially dilutive securities. Shares of our Class B-1 and Class B-2 common stock are not entitled to receive any distributions or dividends and have no rights to convert into Class A common stock. When a common unit of Fluence Energy, LLC is exchanged for, at the Company’s election, cash or Class A common stock by a Founder who holds shares of our Class B-1 or Class B-2 common stock, such Founder will be required to surrender a share of Class B-1 or Class B-2 common stock, as the case may be, which we will cancel for no consideration. In the event of cash settlement, the Company is required to issue new shares of Class A common stock and use the proceeds from the sale of these newly-issued shares of Class A common stock to fully fund the cash settlement. Therefore, we did not include shares of our Class B-1 or Class B-2 common stock in the computation of basic loss per share. As we have incurred losses for all periods presented, diluted loss per share is equal to basic loss per share because the effect of potentially dilutive securities would be antidilutive. The potentially dilutive securities that were excluded consist of 117,173,390 Class B-1 common shares, 11,286,991 outstanding stock options, 2,167,290 outstanding phantom units, and 979,608 outstanding restricted stock units as of March 31, 2022.
All earnings prior to and up to November 1, 2021, the date of completion of the IPO, were entirely allocable to non-controlling interest and, as a result, loss per share information is not applicable for reporting periods prior to this date. Consequently, only the net loss allocable to Fluence Energy, Inc. from the period subsequent to November 1, 2021 is included in the net loss attributable to the stockholders of Class A common stock for the six months ended March 31, 2022. Basic and diluted net loss per share of Class A common stock for the three and six months ended March 31, 2022, respectively, have been computed as follows:
In thousands, except share and per share amountsThree Months Ended March 31, 2022Six Months Ended March 31, 2022

Recent Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted

The following table presents accounting standards not yet adopted:

StandardDescriptionRequired date of adoption Effect on the financial statements and other significant matters
ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842)
 In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standard Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2016-02, which supersedes existing guidance on accounting for leases in ASC 840, Leases. This standard requires all leases to be recognized on the consolidated balance sheet. FASB has issued several amendments to ASU 2016-02, including ASU 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements that introduced an additional transition method permitting an entity to initially apply the new lease standard at the adoption date and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. ASU 2016-02 includes optional practical expedients intended to reduce the cost and complexity to implement the new lease standard, such as an option to maintain the current lease classification for all existing lease arrangements and the option to use hindsight in evaluating lessee options to extend or terminate a lease. Early application is permitted.
As an emerging growth company (an “EGC”), the Company is permitted to defer adoption until the non-public company adoption date, i.e., annual periods starting after December 15, 2021.The Company’s existing lease population is mainly comprised of operating leases for office space. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adoption on its consolidated financial statements.
ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326)
In February 2016, FASB issued ASU 2016-13, which updates the impairment model for financial assets measured at amortized cost, known as the Current Expected Credit Loss (“CECL”) model. For trade and other receivables, held-to-maturity debt securities, loans and other instruments, entities will be required to use a new forward-looking “expected loss” model that generally will result in the earlier recognition of allowance for losses. There are various transition methods available upon adoption. Early adoption is permitted.As an EGC, the Company is permitted to defer adoption until the non-public company adoption date, i.e., annual periods starting after December 15, 2022.The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes
In December 2019, FASB issued ASU 2019-12, which removes certain exceptions related to the approach for intraperiod tax allocations, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period, and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. The guidance also clarifies and simplifies other areas of ASC 740. Certain amendments must be applied on a prospective basis, certain amendments must be applied on a retrospective basis, and certain amendments must be applied on a modified retrospective basis through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings/(deficit) in the period of adoption. Early adoption is permitted.As an EGC, the Company is permitted to defer adoption until the non-public company adoption date, i.e., annual periods starting December 15, 2021, and for interim periods beginning after December 15, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adoption on its consolidated financial statements.
ASU 2020-04, Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting (Topic 848)
In March 2020, FASB issued ASU 2020-04, which provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying U.S. GAAP to transactions affected by reference rate (e.g., LIBOR) reform if certain criteria are met, for a limited period of time to ease the potential burden in accounting for (or recognizing the effects of) reference rate reform on financial reporting.
The ASU is effective as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022.
The Company is currently evaluating transactions or contract modifications occurring as a result of reference rate reform and determining whether to apply the optional guidance on an ongoing basis. The ASU is currently not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Customer and Supplier Concentration
For the six months ended March 31, 2022, the Company had one customer that accounted for approximately 70% of total revenue.
For the six months ended March 31, 2021, our top three customers, in the aggregate, accounted for approximately 77% of total revenue.
The Company has a limited number of suppliers of batteries, which is a major component of energy storage products.
Remaining Performance Obligations
The Company’s remaining performance obligations (“backlog”) represent the unrecognized revenue value of its contract commitments, which include deferred revenue and amounts that will be billed and recognized as revenue in future periods. The Company’s backlog may vary significantly each reporting period based on the timing of major new contract commitments and the backlog may fluctuate with currency movements. In addition, the Company’s customers have the right, under some circumstances, to terminate contracts or defer the timing of its services and their payments to the Company.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had a total of $2,150.1 million of remaining performance obligations related to our contractual commitments, of which we expect to recognize 91% in revenue in the next five years and the remainder after five years.
Variable Consideration
As of March 31, 2022 and September 30, 2021, the transaction prices of our active energy solution contracts have been reduced to reflect variable consideration of $52.1 million and $52.8 million, respectively.

4.    Business Combinations
During October 2020, the Company acquired the assets and assumed the liabilities of a US based software and digital intelligence platform. The acquisition has offered new capabilities, amplified and extended the Company’s energy storage product line, enabling customers to maximize the value of energy storage and renewables while accelerating grid decarbonization. The acquisition price of $18.0 million was fully paid with cash, and was adjusted for an immaterial amount to account for changes in net working capital adjustments. The acquisition represents a business combination under ASC 805 Business Combinations. The Company has included the financial results of the acquisition in its consolidated financial statements from the date of acquisition. Transaction costs associated with the acquisition were not significant and were expensed as incurred. The following table summarizes the aggregate fair values and estimated useful lives of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, as of the date of the acquisition.
In thousandsFair ValueEstimated Useful Life
Intangible assets - Developed technology$12,600 12 years
Intangible assets - Customer relationships780 6 years
Property and equipment171 Various
Goodwill4,449 
Cash paid for acquisition$18,000 
The fair value of developed technology was determined using the multi-period excess earnings method as developed technology is considered to be the primary revenue-generating identifiable intangible asset acquired in the acquisition. The fair value assigned to assets acquired and liabilities assumed are based on management’s estimates and assumptions.
The goodwill is primarily attributed to the expanded market opportunities when integrating the acquired entity’s technology with the Company’s technology and the assembled workforce. The excess of the acquisition price over the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed was recorded to goodwill. The Company expects such goodwill to be deductible for income tax purposes. Purchase accounting adjustments related to the acquisition have been completed.

10.    Short-term Debt
Revolving Credit Facility
On November 1, 2021, we entered into a revolving credit facility (the “Revolver”), by and among Fluence Energy, LLC, as the borrower, Fluence Energy, Inc., as a parent guarantor, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto, the lenders party thereto and JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent. The Revolver is secured by a (i) first priority pledge of the equity securities of Fluence Energy, LLC and its subsidiaries and (ii) first priority security interests in, and mortgages on, substantially all tangible and intangible personal property and material fee-owned real property of Fluence Energy, LLC, the parent guarantor and each subsidiary guarantor party thereto, in each case, subject to customary exceptions and limitations. The initial aggregate amount of commitments is $190.0 million from the lenders party thereto including JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., Bank of America, N.A., Barclays Bank PLC, and five other banks. The maturity date of the Revolver is November 1, 2025.
The interest rate is either (i) the Adjusted LIBOR or Adjusted EURIBO Rate (each as defined in the Revolver) plus 3.0% or (ii) the Alternate Base Rate (as defined in the Revolver) plus 2.0% (subject to customary LIBOR replacement provisions and alternative benchmark rates including customary spread adjustments with respect to borrowings in foreign currency), at the option of Fluence Energy, LLC. Fluence Energy, LLC is required to pay to the lenders a commitment fee of 0.55% per annum on the average daily unused portion of the revolving commitments through maturity. The Revolver also provides for up to $190.0 million in letter of credit issuances, which will require customary issuance and administration fees, as well as a fronting fee payable to each issuer thereof and a letter of credit participation fee of 2.75% per annum payable to the lenders.
The Revolver contains customary covenants for these types of financing, including, but not limited to, covenants that restrict our ability to incur additional indebtedness; incur liens; sell, transfer, or dispose of property and assets; make investments or acquisitions; make dividends, distributions or other restricted payments; and engage in affiliate transactions. The Revolver limits our ability to make certain payments, including dividends and distributions on Fluence Energy, LLC’s equity, Fluence Energy, Inc.’s equity and other restricted payments. In addition, we are required to maintain (i) minimum liquidity and gross revenue requirements, in each case, until consolidated EBITDA reaches $150.0 million for the most recent four fiscal quarters and we make an election, and (ii) thereafter, a maximum total leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage ratio. Such covenants will be tested on a quarterly basis. As of March 31, 2022, we were in compliance with all such covenants or maintained availability above such covenant triggers.
As of March 31, 2022, we had no borrowings under the Revolver.

Line of Credit
Prior to the IPO, the Company had an Uncommitted Line of Credit Agreement (“Line of Credit’) with Citibank, N.A. (“Citibank”) which allowed us to borrow an amount in aggregate not to exceed $50.0 million, with the expiration date on March 31, 2023. Outstanding borrowings from the Line of Credit were $50.0 million as of September 30, 2021. The weighted average annual interest rate of the borrowing was 2.83%. On November 1, 2021, the $50.0 million outstanding borrowings from the Line of Credit was paid off using the proceeds from our IPO, and the Line of Credit was canceled shortly thereafter.
Refer to Note 13 — Related-Party Transactions for borrowings from related parties.

11.    Income Taxes
The Company’s provision for income taxes is based on the estimated annual effective tax rate, plus discrete items.
Income tax expense was $0.1 million and $0.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 was (0.2)% and (2.2)%, respectively. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company’s effective tax rate differs from the U.S. statutory tax rate of 21% primarily due to flow-through losses incurred prior to the IPO on November 1, 2021, flow-through losses attributable to the Founders, and valuation allowances. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company’s effective tax rate differs from the U.S. statutory tax rate primarily due to foreign tax rate differentials, losses incurred by the partnership that flow through to the members, valuation allowances recorded on foreign deferred tax assets and foreign withholding taxes on royalties.
Income tax expense was $0.5 million and $1.2 million for the six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The effective tax rate for the six months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 was (0.3)% and (3.4)%, respectively. For the six months ended March 31, 2022, the Company’s effective tax rate differs from the U.S. statutory tax rate of 21% primarily due to flow-through losses incurred prior to the IPO on November 1, 2021, flow-through losses attributable to the Founders, and valuation allowances. For the six months ended March 31, 2021, the Company’s effective tax rate differs from the U.S. statutory tax rate primarily due to foreign tax rate differentials, losses incurred by the partnership that flow through to the members, valuation allowances recorded on foreign deferred tax assets and foreign withholding taxes on royalties.
The Company does not believe it has any significant uncertain tax positions and therefore has no unrecognized tax benefits as of March 31, 2022 and September 30, 2021, that if recognized, would affect the annual effective tax rate.
As of March 31, 2022 and September 30, 2021, the Company had recorded a full valuation allowance against deferred tax assets of its German and Australian subsidiaries. Upon the IPO on November 1, 2021, Fluence Energy, Inc. became a holding company of Fluence Energy, LLC, and as a corporation, recorded deferred tax assets primarily related to its investment in the partnership. The Company determined that based on the weight of available evidence, including cumulative losses, it is more-likely-than-not that the net deferred tax assets of Fluence Energy, Inc. and Fluence Energy, LLC’s subsidiaries in Germany and Australia will not be realized and valuation allowances have been recorded against such deferred tax assets.
12.    Commitments and Contingencies
Commitments
The Company has certain contractual obligations incurred in the normal course of business that require fixed and determinable payments in the future. These commitments include lease obligations and purchase commitments under master supply agreements.
The Company did not have significant changes in lease contracts and purchase commitments during the six months ended March 31, 2022. During the six months ended March 31, 2022, the Company made a $60.0 million advance payment as a capacity guarantee pursuant to a purchase agreement with one of our suppliers, of which, $33.7 million and $26.3 million was recorded within “Current assets - Advances to suppliers” and “Non-current assets - Advances to suppliers”, respectively, on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Warranties
The Company is party to both assurance and service-type warranties for various lengths of time. The Company recognizes revenue for service type warranties over time using costs incurred relative to total expected costs as a measure of progress. For assurance-type warranties, the Company records an estimate of future warranty cost when the battery energy solution is transferred to the customer and the future costs of servicing the warranty are both probable and estimable. No material amount of costs for assurance type warranties have been incurred and we are not able to estimate an amount of probable future costs, thus no liability has been recorded.

Table of Contents
Legal Contingencies
From time to time, the Company may be involved in litigation relating to claims that arise out of our operations and businesses and that cover a wide range of matters, including, among others, intellectual property matters, contract and employment claims, personal injury claims, product liability claims and warranty claims. The Company accrues for litigation and claims when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of loss can be reasonably estimated. It is reasonably possible that some matters could be decided unfavorably to the Company and could require the Company to pay damages or make expenditures in amounts that could be material. In aggregate, the Company estimates the range of potential losses, where estimable, related to reasonably possible material contingencies to be between $0 million and $5.0 million.
The following discussion covers the Company’s potential loss contingencies as of March 31, 2022:
2021 Cargo Loss Incident
On April 28, 2021, the Company was notified of an emergency aboard a vessel carrying Fluence inventory. This incident (the “Cargo Loss Incident”) resulted in damage to a portion of our cargo aboard the vessel. The Company has recorded $13.0 million provision to its inventory as of September 30, 2021 based on the net realizable value of cargo that was destroyed. During the six months ended March 31, 2022, $13.0 million of inventory was written off against the provision. In addition to the inventory losses, we have incurred and expect to incur incremental expenses related to the incident, primarily consisting of inspection costs, project cost overruns due to logistical changes, legal fees, fees to dispose of the damaged cargo, and additional cost to replace the damaged cargo. We received an aggregate of $10.0 million insurance proceeds related to non-disputed claims, $7.5 million of which was collected in October 2021 and the remaining $2.5 million was collected in April 2022.
2021 Overheating Event at Customer Facility
On September 4, 2021, a 300 MW energy storage facility owned by one of our customers experienced an overheating event. Fluence served as the energy storage technology provider and installed the facility, which was completed in fiscal year 2021. No injuries were reported from the incident. Since then, the facility was taken offline as teams from Fluence, our customer, and the battery manufacturer investigate the incident. Our customer released initial findings in the second fiscal quarter of 2022 on what it contends is the root cause of the incident. At this time, Fluence cannot comment on or accept the customer’s stated findings, because Fluence’s investigation of the root cause remains ongoing, with continued participation by our customer and other parties involved. The customer’s stated findings, if ultimately confirmed and proven, could relate to certain scopes of work for which Fluence or its subcontractors could be responsible. The customer’s stated findings, however, could also relate to certain scopes of work for which other parties were responsible and/or relate to other causes. The customer has alleged that Fluence is liable for the incident but has not yet demanded a specific amount of compensation. Fluence has denied liability, pending completion of all investigations. No legal proceedings have been commenced. We are currently not able to estimate the impact, if any, that this incident may have on our reputation or financial results, or on the market adoption of our products.
13.    Related-Party Transactions
Related parties are represented by AES and Siemens, their respective subsidiaries and other entities under common control. As of March 31, 2022, AES and Siemens each holds 58,586,695 shares of Class B-1 common stock of the Company.
Borrowings from Related Parties
On August 11, 2021, the Company borrowed $25.0 million and $25.0 million from AES Grid Stability and Siemens Industry, respectively, in the form of subordinated promissory notes, each bearing an annual interest at 2.86%. The promissory notes were paid off in full on November 1, 2021 using proceeds from the IPO.
Sales and Procurement Contracts with Related Parties
Fluence signs battery-based energy storage product and related service contracts with AES, Siemens and their subsidiaries (collectively refer to as affiliates). The contract price in such contracts is similar to the price charged by us to third-party customers.
