CALGARY, AB, March 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ – Exro Technologies Inc. (TSX: EXRO), (OTCQB: EXROF) (the “Company” or “Exro“), a leading clean-technology company focused on developing new generation power-control electronics that expand the capabilities of electric motors and batteries, announced today the filing of its management information circular (the “Circular”) with respect to the Transaction with SEA Electric Inc. (“SEA Electric”). The Circular, which provides comprehensive information about the Transaction, marks another milestone in the Transaction process and precedes the Meeting.

“The Circular sets out the compelling case for shareholders to approve Exro’s merger with SEA Electric,” said Exro CEO Sue Ozdemir. “We are at the inflection of a great step forward, combining our collective strengths to build on our OEM partnerships and combined technology to make electric vehicles (“EVs”)  more practical, with a lower total cost of ownership.”

The Transaction, announced on January 30, 2024, is a strategic move designed to strengthen Exro’s position in the EV technology sector, while accelerating revenue growth and establishing a defined path to profitability in the first half of 2025. The Transaction will result in a fully integrated next generation electric propulsion technology company and will:

  • Combine Exro’s Coil Driver motor control technology with SEA Electric’s SEA-Drive vehicle control unit (VCU) software technology to deliver superior performance, efficiency, and total cost of ownership advantages embedded in a complete package electric propulsion system for the commercial vehicle space. Following the closing of the Transaction, Exro is preparing to deliver over 1,000 propulsion systems in 2024 to blue-chip OEMs, targeting combined company annual revenues of over C$200 million.
  • Introduce a new asset-light business model to EV technology space by leveraging the OEMs manufacturing and distribution networks (i.e. no requirement for large capital or operating expenses to build-out and operate manufacturing facilities) enabling the Company to focus on its core competency of technology innovation.

In addition to the above, the Circular provides detailed information on the expected benefits of the Transaction, terms and conditions, potential risks, and voting procedures, among other relevant information. The Circular is also available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca and on the Company’s website at www.exro.com and our website for the Transaction at www.exroandsea.com.  

The Transaction is expected to provide meaningful benefits to Exro and its shareholders, including but not limited to:

  • Technology Synergies. The Transaction marks a significant leap forward in electrification technology. The Company following the Transaction (the “Combined Company”) will offer comprehensive end-to-end electrification solutions that encompass full propulsion systems equipped with patented vehicle control and motor control technologies. This union enriches the Company’s offering with a robust IP portfolio of over 60 patent and patent applications, supporting Exro’s position at the forefront of innovation in the electrification transition.
  • Operational Synergies. The Transaction will tap into a wealth of operational synergies. This strategic partnership blends Exro and SEA Electric’s industrial expertise with a shared network of key product partnerships, catalyzing innovation in energy efficiency.
  • Shareholder Value Creation. The Transaction is a strategic move designed to maximize shareholder value through several key avenues:
    • anticipated increase in revenue and a decrease in cost base, thanks to operational efficiencies and combined expertise,
    • broadened intellectual portfolio that will enable Exro to commercialize new technologies more efficiently,
    • stronger financial performance, enhanced marketing position and a solid position for long-term growth, and
    • accelerated path to profitability.

Shareholders are encouraged to review the Circular carefully and to vote online in advance of the April 2, 2024, 11:00 a.m. (Mountain time), vote deadline. For more information on the Transaction, shareholders are invited to:
