nCoat Announces Collaboration Plans With German Hi-Tech Coating Firm
(Nanowerk News) nCoat, Inc. (OTCBB: NCOA) ("nCoat" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with the European engineering firm of Target Electronic Service GmbH ("Target").
The LOI formalizes a business relationship between Target (www.target-electronic.de) and nCoat, specifically for the purpose of collaborating together for expansion of each of their business interests in the United States as well as in Europe respectively. To help facilitate this expansion, nCoat expects to increase the common capital stock of Target by nearly 30% within 90 days following the execution of this LOI.
Both Parties propose to collaborate in areas of mutual technical and business benefit, including furthering development of both Target and nCoat's international revenue and operating footprint in their respective primary markets. Preliminary collaboration plans include (1) cross sales opportunities to existing coating customers, (2) exploration of opportunities for Target to use nCoat coating products with Target application services, and (3) the development of joint engineering collaboration for future product and service offerings. Furthermore, both companies hope to further explore the development of integrated business structures and synergistic financing options towards the best joint interest of both companies.
"The collaboration with Target represents a win-win for both companies," said Paul Clayson, CEO of nCoat. "The cross platform opportunities and customer synergies are very significant."
Target primarily provides the application of protective coatings (conformal coatings) on electronic assemblies (circuit boards). The company principally uses proprietary processes and currently coats in excess of one million assemblies annually.
Additionally, Target offers specialized finishing processes utilizing state-of-the-art precision robotics driven by proprietary software applications. Many of the coatings and processes are developed and prototyped specifically for individual customer needs. Target's primary market advantage is in design and process flexibility. Target works with some of the most well known European manufacturers including; Miele, Hella, Siemens, Audi, Ferrari, Porsche, Bosch and many others. The company provides major manufacturers with high volume outsourced services that do not fit the economic models at the larger firms. Target's service focus is the ability to tailor and adapt to the logistic demands of their clients, ensuring timely delivery of finished, high quality products.
