Highlights

 

·   Equipmake is a UK-based technology company which has developed a range of electrification products for the provision of EV drivetrains to meet the needs of the automotive, aerospace and other sectors, in support of the transition from fossil-fuelled to zero emission powertrains.

 

·     Equipmake's products can be used in a number of segments of the transport sector, but its initial focus has been on the bus sector, where it has secured a contract for retrofitting existing buses currently in service in addition to developing a double decker bus, incorporating its electric drive train, for the UK market. Equipmake's products can be applied in a variety of other vehicle electrification contexts, including hybrid, fully electric and fuel cell vehicles.

 

·    The Directors believe Equipmake's products are among the best in class at a component level and the Company has the ability to supply a complete powertrain in addition to the supply of individual component parts and bespoke solutions within this framework, which gives it a significant competitive advantage over other component suppliers.

 

·      The Company has a significant pipeline of opportunities in excess of £400 million at various stages of negotiation, as demand for electric vehicles increases as part of the global decarbonisation movement.

 

·    The Directors believe that the ability to offer a vertically integrated solution will enable Equipmake to seek higher margins, or offer reduced pricing compared with competitors who are integrating bought in system components.

 

·     Equipmake's initial focus is the bus industry, including the provision of new buses and the retrofit of existing hybrid and full diesel vehicles to become fully electric. It is also in discussions with certain manufacturers of cars and other companies involved in the aerospace and marine sectors.

 

Ian Foley, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Equipmake, said: 

 

"We are delighted to be joining AQSE today and welcome our new shareholders to Equipmake - it is a great endorsement of our business and we look forward to accelerating it.

Global demand for electric vehicles is soaring. We are ideally placed to benefit in the bus market, one of the most promising sectors, which has so far been neglected.

We have developed a highly differentiated offering, driven by both technology and relationships within the automotive sector - this gives us a great platform to a very bright future as the world decarbonises.

Today's listing sends a powerful signal about our intent and potential, and we now have the backing to expand our operations and to service the significant number of global opportunities in our pipeline. 

I would like to thank all our new shareholders for their support and the fantastic team at Equipmake who have helped the Company get to where we are today. We are all excited about the future"
