24-Month Revenue Guidance
Pursuant to the technology partnership agreement dated February 5, 2021 between the Company, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary IoniX Pro Battery Technologies Inc. ("IoniX Pro"), and Daymak (the "Technology Partnership Agreement"), the Company has the first exclusive right to provide battery products to all of Daymak's products. For further details on the agreement, please refer to the announcement on February 8, 2021. While the batteries themselves are normally sold at prices resulting in margins of approximately 10%, all EVs produced by Daymak are anticipated to be powered by the customized IoniX Pro Lithium-Ion battery pack, which will be equipped with the Company's patented AI-powered battery management system ("BMS"). The BMS will carry higher margins than the batteries and therefore the Company anticipates blended margins of approximately 25%.
Daymak estimates that over 30% of its production cost will be in the battery systems, including the BMS. Since signing the Technology Partnership Agreement, the Company has already received purchase orders for $2 million dollars worth of battery systems, for just its existing LEV vehicles.
On April 6, Daymak made a guidance news announcement. For a full copy of Daymak's press release, please follow this link: news release dated April 6, 2021.
Given Daymak's recent announcement, the Company projects that it could generate revenues of up to $300 million in the next 24 months, from the Daymak partnership. The Company estimates that the costs associated in generating this revenue will be $225 million, resulting in profits of up to $75 million. The Company expects to see significantly higher margins with their retail products compared to the margins from the sales related to the Daymak partnership. The margins associated with Daymak's projections are lower since Daymak is a partner and the sales to Daymak will be at wholesale (as opposed to retail) prices.
"Investors have been calling and asking for clarification on our revenue plans. I am pleased to articulate and demonstrate the importance and magnitude of this very beneficial relationship we have built with Daymak." Commented Bryson Goodwin President and CEO.
"If you look at the EV trends over the last three years combined with clean energy initiatives going on across the globe, Daymak believes it is in a prime position to achieve superior sales," commented Daymak CEO, Aldo Baiocchi.
According to EV-Volumes, EV Sales Volumes have been growing at over 100% month-over-month growth since July of last year.
The Company also continues to build its sales and distribution networks for its line of IoniX Pro Energy Storage Systems (ESS), including:
- the Home SmartWall, for which it expects deliveries to commence in Q4 of 2021;
- the TITAN EnergyCore, for which it expects deliveries to commence in Q3 of 2021;
- the RV Freedom, for which it expects deliveries Q3 of 2021; and
- the EV Smart Charger, for which it expects deliveries to commence in Q1 of 2022.
The Company also continues to develop blockchain platforms, which will serve as the backend infrastructure for the entire IoniX Pro product line up and will be customizable for use for third parties.
"The demand for our IoniX products has been extremely encouraging given they were all launched within the last 3 months," commented IoniX Pro's Chief Innovation Officer, Robert Abenante. "However, this recent partnership with Daymak has been particularly exciting given the rapid increase in orders for our battery systems." continued Mr. Abenante.
The sales and revenue projections are subject to the forward-looking information and risk factors included below. See: "Forward Looking Information" and "Risk Factors".
The Daymak EV line is anticipated to be ready to hit the streets starting in 2022 with Terra Ebike and Tectus Mobility followed by the Spiritus in 2023. For more information on pre-orders or to see a live counter of pre-order sales, please visit www.daymakavvenire.com.
Corporate Updates and Highlights
The Company is pleased to announce that its IoniX Pro RV Freedom battery, and IoniX Pro SmartWall have begun the manufacturing stage, and both products are expected to have the first versions landed in Canada by Summer 2021.
The Company is pleased to announce that Mr. Robert Abenante will be assuming the role of Managing Director in its subsidiary IoniX Pro. Mr. Abenante currently holds the title of Chief Innovation Officer and will now also assume the head of the Company's battery products and services subsidiary.
The Company recently closed the first tranche of its previously announced private placement, as stated in its news release dated April 6, 2021.
On behalf of the Company,
Chief Executive Officer

Financial outlook contained in this news release was made by management as of the date of this news release and was provided for the purpose of providing readers with an understanding of the potential revenue which may be derived from the Technology Partnership Agreement recently entered into by the Company, and are not an estimate of profitability or any other measure of financial performance. Readers are cautioned that the financial outlook contained in this document should not be used for purposes other than for which it is disclosed herein.
Material Agreement with Daymak.
The Company's Technology Partnership Agreement with Daymak is a material agreement for the Company. The Company's potential revenue is substantially dependent on Daymak successfully completing and selling its Avvenire products within the next 24 months. If Daymak is not able to successfully complete the projected sales of its Avvenire products in the next 24 months or if Daymak does successfully complete its Avvenire projected sales by such date but does exclusively purchase the IoniX Pro Lithium-Ion battery packs from the Company, then there will be a material adverse effect on the business, results of operations and financial condition of the Company. There is no assurance that the Company will be successful in achieving potential revenue from sales to Daymak and the likelihood of success must be considered in light of the Company's early stage of operations.
There is potential for the Company to face intense competition from other companies, some of which have longer operating histories and more financial resources, industry, manufacturing and marketing experience than the Company. Additionally, there is potential that the industry will undergo consolidation, creating larger companies that may have increased geographic scope and other economies of scale. Increased competition by larger and better financed competitors with geographic and other structural advantages could materially and adversely affect the proposed business, financial condition and results of operations of the Company. This could have a material impact on profit margins especially if raw materials and/or labour costs change. In the event that input costs rise or that competitor costs fall significantly, there is potential that the profit margins could be significantly lower.
Reliance on Management.
The success of the Company will be dependent upon the ability, expertise, judgment, discretion and good faith of its senior management and key personnel. While employment agreements are customarily used as a primary method of retaining the services of key employees, these agreements cannot assure the continued services of such employees. Any loss of the services of such individuals could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, operating results or financial condition. In addition, the Company's future success depends on its continuing ability to attract, develop, motivate and retain highly qualified and skilled employees. Qualified individuals are in high demand, and the Company may incur significant costs to attract and retain them.
There is no guarantee that the Company will be able to continue to execute on its business strategy. The continued development of the Company may require additional financing. The failure to raise such capital could result in the delay or indefinite postponement of current business strategy or the Company ceasing to carry on business. There can be no assurance that additional capital or other types of financing will be available if needed or that, if available, the terms of such financing will be favourable to the Company. In addition, from time to time, the Company may enter into transactions to acquire assets or the shares of other companies. These transactions may be financed wholly or partially with debt, which may temporarily increase the Company's debt levels above industry standards. Any debt financing secured in the future could involve restrictive covenants relating to capital raising activities and other financial and operational matters, which may make it more difficult for the Company to obtain additional capital and to pursue business opportunities, including potential acquisitions
Management of Growth.
The Company may be subject to growth-related risks including capacity constraints and pressure on its internal systems and controls. The ability of the Company to manage growth effectively will require it to continue to implement and improve its operational and financial systems and to expand, train and manage its employee base. The inability of the Company to deal with this growth may have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects.
The Effects of Health Epidemics (Including the Global COVID-19 Pandemic).
In December 2019, a novel strain of COVID-19 was reported in China. Since then, the COVID-19 has spread globally including across North America. The spread of COVID-19 from China to other countries has resulted in the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the outbreak of COVID-19 as a "pandemic," or a worldwide spread of a new disease, on March 11, 2020. Many countries around the world, including Canada and the United States, have imposed quarantines and restrictions on travel and mass gatherings to slow the spread of the virus, and have closed non-essential businesses. The Company's business could be materially and adversely affected by the risks, or the public perception of the risks, related to the outbreak of COVID-19. The risk of a pandemic, or public perception of the risk, could cause temporary or long-term disruptions to the Company's supply chains and/or its service providers or could result in reduced spending on the Company's proposed products and services. "Shelter-in-place" or other such orders by governmental entities could also disrupt the Company's operations if employees who cannot perform their responsibilities from home are not able to report to work. The spread of COVID-19, which has caused a broad impact globally, may materially affect the Company economically. While the potential economic impact brought by, and the duration of, COVID-19 may be difficult to assess or predict, a widespread pandemic could result in significant disruption of global financial markets, reducing the Company's ability to access capital, which could in the future negatively affect liquidity. In addition, a recession or market correction resulting from the spread of COVID-19 could materially affect the Company's business and the value of its securities. The global outbreak of COVID-19 continues to rapidly evolve. The extent to which COVID-19 may impact the Company's business, operations and financial performance will depend on future developments, including the duration of the outbreak, travel restrictions and social distancing in Canada and other countries, changes to the regulatory regimes under which the Company operates, the effectiveness of actions taken in Canada and other countries to contain and treat the disease and whether the Canada and additional countries are required to move or return to complete lock-down status. The ultimate long-term impact of COVID-19 is highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence.
