Product

A clever, new 2-Stroke Cycle technology invented by a former F1 engine designer for the General Aviation market combining the benefits and efficiencies of commonplace 4-stroke cycle engines and the cost and simplicity of 2-stroke cycle engines whilst eliminating the weaknesses of both.

This results is significantly lighter, cheaper, multi-fuel, lower emissions, reliable engines appreciated by the OEM.  

Further information and illustrations are in the submitted business decks.

Traction
  • General Aviation versions have entered the market with overwhelming demand. Aviation Sales Order stands currently at US$10.7M and rising, with registered customer leads equivalent to US$47M worth of potential sales as disclosed in further detail in submitted business decks.

  • Our company is developing new non-Aviation product & market development with the following initial low volume, premium segment, high performance partner-customers with signed MoUs:

    • Bufori Motor Car Company Sdn. Bhd.

    • Palatov Motorsport LLC

  • We have interests from other high profile niche OEMs - Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus and Brabham Automotive for potential applications in high performance road and race vehicles, as well as interest from other undisclosed mass market OEM.

  • We have received other sector interests including Marine and Waste To Energy prospects.

  • We have had positive interest from the management team of Modenas for 2-wheeled applications.

  • Two local universities, UTM and UTHM have agreed to collaborate on the development of this engine, on future low carbon technologies including Hydrogen propulsion and to support local propulsion design engineering capabilities.

  • Mr Pat Symonds, the CTO of Formula 1 was briefed on this technology and expressed encouragement and interest in our progress. It was widely reported in the press that he believed that clean 2-stroke hybrids may be the future powertrain for F1. Ref: Formula 1's plan for green and noisy engines: two-stroke hybrids, running on synthetic fuel

  • We are currently engaging a prominent public listed automotive component manufacturer on joint venture manufacturing plans to address the high demand currently experienced with the General Aviation orders.

  • Manufacturing supply chain assessment and road map study was commissioned to Ricardo PLC, a prominent engineering firm in the UK for the purpose of establishing end to end engine manufacturing and supply chain capabilities for high value, high precision, low volume, high mix type production in Malaysia.

  • We are in the final phase of the MOSTI SRF Grant approval process. Nonetheless the success of our project is not dependent on this approval and serves only to reduce capital cost.

The financial and revenue projections below are conservative as current order traction has exceeded 2022 & 2023 sales projections assumed below.

Customers

We are targeting industrial customers that use engines to generate power.

This includes stationary power generators and propulsion for transportation.

We target customers seeking lighter, cheaper engine solutions with better fuel economy and reliability.    

We offer both lower CAPEX and OPEX with our engine solutions and lower emissions through lighter weight and lower friction. The multifuel design philosophy allows for widespread applications.   

For near term, we are targeting niche, high performance vehicle customers first, due to lower market entry barrier. We have relationships in place thanks to past industry relations.

For longer term, we are targeting mass market OEMs in the transport and power sector. This involves higher entry barriers and longer acquisition period but with high value contract sizes.

Business Model

For products, we will contract manufacture through a Joint Venture with a local manufacturing partner. Total Gross Profit Margin estimated to potentially reach up to 60% with stable production. 35% is the estimated GP based on present batch production process.

Similar model with automotive and non-aviation products with variation in GP margin.

Design & Engineering Consultancy revenues for automotive and non-aviation OEM customers.

IP licensing revenues for large non-aviation OEM customers.

Market 

Our TAM is the Automotive, Marine & Aviation IC Engine sector which is valued at over US$150B based on market reports on annual engine sales multiplied by estimated average engine cost.

We are currently serving the General Aviation market and will start to serve niche Automotive, followed by Marine.

Beginning with existing market traction from Aviation we project to capture over US$220M in revenues by 2028, with 80% from Aviation and balance from Automotive and others. This represents less than 0.2% total market share.

For aviation, our focus in the General Aviation which remains buoyant and not the Commercial Aviation which has been in a recession. The primary end-customer markets are USA, followed by EU while for non-Aviation it is the global market namely US/EU initially for niche but with Asia being the ultimate goal for mass market.

 

Competition 

We have no local competitors while our competitors abroad are typically specialist design engineering firms while new innovative engine concepts are typically from other start-up firms like Achates Power, Aquarius and others, whose market penetration is questionable. 

We have the advantage of being well received in the General Aviation market and meeting the high standards expected for compliance.  The same benefits can be applied for other application sectors.

Funding

The company has been self-funded by founders and have also received RM150k from angel investors

Our indicative fundraising roadmap as follows:

  1. Series Seed Funding Round, 6 months after close of ECF. We are currently enrolled in Newchip Accelerator Programme, a US-based remote Start-Up Accelerator and will be coordinating with their Investor Relations team to match us to prospective international investors for the next funding round. Newchip also holds a Warrant to invest up to USD250,000.

  2. Series A Funding Round, 18 months after close of ECF for expansion and technology asset acquisitions.

Since we have a profit generating business model with orders exceeding capacity, we do not foresee funding rounds beyond Series A or B. Internal funding and/or or debt financing will be used for future capital needs.

With our positive net income projection, we envision investor Exit Opportunity likely via Trade Sale in 7 years. We expect a marked jump in Valuation of about US$1B at conservative 15x multiple thanks to engine certification milestone resulting in Serviceable Operating Market expansion by 5-6x.  

IPO is a secondary exit consideration, subject to capital requirements should we decide on aggressive growth plans amidst suitable market conditions.
