Business Overview

With development in technology and The Company’s expertise we are at a new dawn where the business has developed the capability to deliver personal transportation that is safe, clean and economically sustainable for everyone.

Our strategy is essentially to learn and start to build the platform for personal transportation towards autonomous urban mobility. The Company 4.0 is a validated flying showcase of a unique suite of technologies and capabilities that creates a competitive advantage for The Company to address a growing, scalable market of personal transportation.

At the center of the business approach is a clear strategy for generating intelligence through data. The technology and data generated by The Company 4.0 are the foundation of strategic growth as The Company 4.0 provides the platform to learn and generate data to accelerate capability & strategy.

In the short term The Company 4.0 will build credibility by demonstrating technology feasibility, safety and convenience while establishing the market to create interest, build anticipation and customer demand.

Transaction Overview

The next round of funding will enable The Company to build prototypes and start road and air testing. To date, the functional flying prototypes (2.5 & 3.0) and latest validated engineering prototype (4.0) has cost less than €15m. The Company can expertly manage its cash burn and runway to deliver a feasible product to market and realise its ambitious goals

Investment Highlight

The Company has unique IP, an international world class team and initial product built under the current regulatory and certification framework, combining both functionalities – a car and anairplane like no other competitor.

Flying cars are becoming an investment target over the last 12 months and The Company is leading the way as a most advanced company with a real product.

At the heart of the investment is the desire to develop a strong business that is able to generate positive returns early, through the forward selling of the vehicle with staged payments, deposit and the licensing of proprietary technology and IP.

About Our Product

1st Generation: The Company 4.0 – market demonstrator (2020)
- The Company 4.0 is a two seater, medium distance flying car for travelling inter-city. It is fully designed to be certified within existing legislations for use in the air and on the road.
- Essentially The Company is two vehicles in one. It offers the best of both worlds: it is a better car, because it’s also a plane and a better plane, because it’s also a car. The Company 4.0 can switch from car to plane in less than 3 minutes, offering the flexibility to transition from one mode to another.
- The Company 4.0 is the first vehicle in the product plan and is the launch pad for further iterations inour future productsin the drive towards fully autonomous personal transportation.

2nd Generation: The Company 5.0
- 3-4 seat, short distance, intra-city, target premium market and commercial services, solve VTOL capability (electrical propulsion systems, reliable battery technologies-safe for flight, durable)

3rd Generation: The Company 6.0
- 3-4 seat, short-medium distance,increased speed, affordability from scale and lower cost of tech, MaaS only

About Industry

There is a Silicon Valley momentum behind the topic of flying cars which has accelerated since the end of 2016 and into 2017, with notable coverage of flying car concepts and significant investments in the market.

The Company is at the forefront of this momentum capturing more coverage than another other flying car. It has been recently present at the two world’s largest aerospace and automotive events in 2017: Paris Air Show and IAA Frankfurt Auto Show.

The market is attracting a range of new entrants and incumbents exploring new opportunities: including the likes of Airbus and Boeing from aerospace and traditional OEMs and Tier1s from the automotive and aviation industries.

At The Company we estimate the market for personal transportation to be worth approximately$1tn by 2040. This estimated to be one third of the size of the auto market, includes sales and aftersales. Additionally, the passenger revenues across all forms of shared transportation, both on the ground and in the air, the socalled “passenger economy” is $10tn. (This is based on Morgan Stanley estimates of global vehicle miles travelled at an average of $1 /mile.)

Financials

The Company was founder-funded initially and has received backing from a number of high profile investors and has gained support from a number bodies including grants and the government.

The Company can generate diverse sources of revenue that will enable the business to capture a larger share of the value chain.

i: Vehicle sales
- 50%+ margin on The Company 4.0 on sales of 500 vehicles priced 1.2-1.5M EUR.
- 30%+ margin on The Company 5.0 and 6.0 at significantly higher production volumes.

ii: IP Licencing
Direct licencing of platform technology to aerospace and automotive industries.

iii: Data monetization
B2B provision of data for systems and product optimization, 3rd party insights and B2C with location based services etc.

About Competitor

The Company is ahead of competitors with a longer range, multi-modal concept ready to market, because it is designed to fulfil the existing legal requirements of both automotive and aviation industries. The Company has higher cruising speed, higher range and higher ceiling and better gliding ratio than helicopter so the comparison with the less effective drones is obsolete.

Exit Strategy

- Acquisition by the major EU, US or Asian OEM.
- Acquisition by the Mobility as a Service provider.
- PE investment for the purpose of the global scale-up as a mobility provider.
