Fast-track growth and manufacturing initiatives.
Regarding solid-state technology, it is very hard to make a comparison because most of the competitors are on a similar or lower TRL level (Technology Readiness Level). However, our Client has been able to reach very good results with, until recently, limited financial means and manpower. Regarding battery systems, our Client’s approach is more flexible than that of competitors’ and the company can offer faster and modular way solutions for different applications that most of our Client’s competitors do not have. Regarding recycling, our Client is focused on LFP (Lithium Ferro Phosphate) based batteries, while our competitors are focused on NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) and NCA (Lithium Nickel-Cobalt-Aluminum Oxide) based batteries. Competitors are developing all materials through a vertical integration from raw materials to cell production. This is very risky and challenges are high. Our Client is specialized in process development, which can be adapted to different solid-state battery generations. Regarding battery systems: the approach of competitors is focused on dedicated markets with limited modular design strategies. Our Client’s design is fully modular and can be applied to different applications and markets.
Our Client has been started with a modest investment and all goals that were expected by 2025 have been reached in 2.5 years, well ahead of projections. The company vision, strategy and management quality will ensure that the future goals allowed by the investment capital will be reached by all as well. Management is looking to roll a significant portion of their ownership equity in any future consummated transaction. The following priority projects are planned in order to expand the business and boost profits: 1. Set up of a battery pack production line with a capacity of 100MWh/year 2. Start of the battery recycling company with capacity of 1000T/year 3. Investment in solid-state battery cell facilities to acquire large contracts in excess of €10,000,000 per year 4. Launch of an IPO 5. Solid investment in HR and marketing.
