Prerequisites for conditional agreement between Inzile and QEV Tech Holdings
As already communicatedInzile AB (publ) (“Inzile”) has entered a conditional agreement to acquire 50% of the Spanish company QEV Tech Holdings (“QEV Holdings”), which in turn is a part owner of the Spanish company QEV Technologies SL (“QEV Tech”). The agreement is subject to approval of the shareholders of Inzile at an extra shareholders’ meeting as well as the approval of Nasdaq First North Growth Market, due to change of identity. Within this new joint electro mobility group Inzile will be parent company for all European activities and the board of directors and management of Inzile will remain in Sweden. QEV Holdings is an owner company and will have no operative function.
- To join forces with Enrique Bañuelos and QEV Tech, Inzile takes a leap in its vision of becoming a leading electro mobility provider, says Daniel Wedberg, CEO of Inzile. With this setup we have secured a long-term investor with the necessary network, customer base and capabilities to scale globally, continues Daniel Wedberg.
In the new joint structure Inzile will be responsible for sales, while QEV Tech will cater for development of vehicles for the volume market. Manufacturing will be outsourced, except production of special vehicles, which will stay in Västervik, Sweden. Sales of vehicles, services and solutions will go through Inzile, which has already developed and implemented a digital sales platform, as well as traditional distribution channels.
QEV Tech will develop vehicles for the volume market, building on today’s scope of formula E, rally cross and electric buses. QEV will also be the main contributor in developing next generation of Inzile’s electronic light truck Pro4, as well as vehicles in segments above and under the current Pro 4 range. Inzile R&D will continue to focus on specialized small commercial vehicles and expand its scope to niche markets like municipalities and the hotel & resort industry.
Development of value added services and connectivity will be centralized to Sweden, which is a pioneering country in terms of digitalization. Inzile's production unit in Sweden will remain unchanged and it will serve as role model for future micro production units within the new group.
