Nadir Ali – Chief Executive Officer and Director, Inpixon
Good afternoon everyone, and thank you for joining our business update presentation.
We believe this is a transformational year for Inpixon, and I’m excited to be here with you today to discuss the future of Inpixon and our efforts to maximize shareholder value. While we will spend the majority of our time today introducing you to Damon Motors, I’d like to start by providing a quick overview of our progress on the two recently announced transactions which follow on our earlier strategic transaction with CXApp and KINS which closed in March of this year.
Specifically, we have entered into two independent definitive merger agreements with transportation innovators, XTI Aircraft and Damon Motors.
As announced on July 25th, we entered into a definitive merger agreement with XTI Aircraft. In connection with this transaction, which is subject to certain closing conditions, Inpixon will be renamed XTI Aerospace and will trade under the new ticker symbol XTIA. XTI is developing the TriFan 600 fixed-wing vertical lift crossover airplane, or, VLCA. The combined company will be focused on continuing the development of the TriFan 600 and will also continue offering Inpixon’s real-time location system technologies.
Upon completion of the XTI merger, Inpixon will be renamed XTI Aerospace and will continue to trade on Nasdaq under the new ticker symbol XTIA, and will be led by a new senior management team and a new board of directors. XTI Aerospace will be focused primarily on continuing the development of the TriFan 600, a potential disruptor within the aviation industry, while also continuing to offer our RTLS technologies to support a wide array of industries, including aviation.
We believe the TriFan 600, when commercially developed, can bridge a gap in the aviation market, combining the speed, comfort and range of a fixed-wing airplane with the point-to-point convenience of a helicopter. In addition, the TriFan can utilize existing airport runways or helipads, as well as non-traditional landing areas, due to its cross-over take-off-and landing capabilities. We believe this dual take-off and landing capability will drive uptake and rapid market penetration.
XTI has obtained over 700 conditional pre-orders and expressions of interest under a combination of aircraft purchase agreements, non-binding reservation deposit agreements, options and letters of intent for its aircraft. Collectively, these pre-orders represent potential gross revenues of more than $7.0 billion, based on the current list price of $10 million per aircraft assuming the company is able to execute on the development program for the TriFan, secure FAA certification, and deliver these aircraft. We believe this demonstrates the pent-up demand in the market for a crossover aircraft that has the potential to revolutionize its segment of the aircraft industry.
We discussed XTI in great detail during our presentation hosted on August 14th and I’d encourage investors to view the presentation again for detailed information. But overall, we believe that this merger can maximize value for our shareholders over time. We expect this transaction to close during the current quarter, assuming that we are able to satisfy the requisite conditions before year-end, including approval by our stockholders and Nasdaq listing approval. I’m pleased to share that the S-4 filed in connection with the XTI transaction was declared effective by the SEC yesterday, and the related shareholder meeting has been scheduled for December 8th, 2023.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q – Alexandra Schilt
Why is Inpixon pursuing these transactions?
A – Nadir Ali – Chief Executive Officer and Director, Inpixon
As I mentioned during the call and previously, we don’t believe Inpixon is being properly reflected in the stock price or market cap. We have expressed our goal of pursuing strategic transactions that we believe will maximize value for shareholders. In furtherance of this objective, earlier this year we completed the spinoff of our enterprise apps business with KINS and we believe that these two additional transactions with XTI and Damon are meaningful for the Company by allowing us to enter new markets with upside potential for two separate public companies.
Q – Alexandra Schilt
Will my Inpixon shares be automatically converted into shares in the new company?
A – Nadir Ali – Chief Executive Officer and Director, Inpixon
To clarify we are talking about two separate transactions. Inpixon shareholders at the time of the closing of the XTI transaction will essentially become shareholders of XTI Aerospace as a result of that merger transaction, our ticker will change to XTIA, our name will change to XTI Aerospace XTI management will become management of XTI Aerospace, and a majority of our board of directors will be designees of XTI. Separately, for the Grafiti spinoff transaction, our shareholders as of a record date to be determined will participate in the spinoff distribution. These shareholders will be able to retain their Inpixon shares and also receive shares of Grafiti Holding. The proposed business combination of Grafiti and Damon is anticipated to close following the spinoff, subject to the satisfaction certain closing conditions.
