The Condensed Balance Sheets as of September 30, 2021, the Condensed Statements of Operations and the Condensed Statements of Shareholders’ Equity (Deficit) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, and the Condensed Statements of Cash Flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, have been prepared by MicroVision, Inc. ("we" or "our") and have not been audited. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary to state fairly the financial position at September 30, 2021 and the results of operations and cash flows for all periods presented have been made and consist of normal recurring adjustments. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The year-end condensed balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. You should read these condensed financial statements in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results that may be attained for the entire fiscal year.

We are focused on increasing the value of the Company by completing development of our 1st Generation Long Range Lidar (LRL) module to a level that it would be ready to scale in the market. We believe our technology and designs for automotive lidar can be successful in the market, and we expect our solutions to have features and performance that exceed those of competitors and will provide a sustainable strategic advantage in the market.

For the past few years, our strategy has been to sell Augmented Reality (AR) displays or components, Interactive Displays, or Consumer Lidars to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and original design manufacturers (ODMs) for incorporation into their products. However, while we do have a customer for one of these products which generates royalty income, the volume of sales and resulting royalties from that product are not significant, and we have been unable to secure additional customers to launch one of our products. As a result, in February 2020, we began seeking strategic alternatives while continuing to develop our 1st Generation Long Range Lidar module.

We have incurred significant losses since inception. We have funded our operations to date primarily through the sale of common stock, convertible preferred stock, warrants, the issuance of convertible debt and, to a lesser extent, from development contract revenues, product sales and licensing activities.

At September 30, 2021, we had $125.1 million in cash and cash equivalents. Based on our current operating plan, we anticipate that we have sufficient cash and cash equivalents to fund our operations for at least the next 12 months.
