Highlights from the presentation include:
Nano is Poised to Accelerate Growth and Create an Additive Manufacturing Leader, Through Market-Defining Technology
- Nano, under the existing Board and management team, has a clearly-defined multi-pronged growth strategy buoyed by strong fundamentals, including disciplined M&A of transformative and highly accretive opportunities and strong organic growth from leading technology development and innovation efforts.
- Under Nano’s current strategy, the Company has been delivering strong results – growing revenue 314% in 2022 and over 1,000% since 2020, while successfully assembling a go-to-market platform that addresses diversified end markets with a presence across all industry verticals. With robust commercial momentum, revenue is expected to continue to grow as Nano advances the Company’s “buy and build” platform scaling strategy.
Disciplined Capital Allocation, Leveraging Management’s Strong Track Record and a Robust Project Pipeline Further Accelerate Nano’s Strategy and Shareholder Value
- Nano’s disciplined approach to capital allocation has enabled the Company to enter the next phase of this market with the cash firepower to continue to build its business –unlike any of its peers. This is a direct result of leadership’s ability to be decisive and forward-thinking in raising $1.5 billion in equity financing at the right time between April 2020 and April 2021 – when Nano’s valuation was particularly favorable, and cost of capital was low.
- Looking ahead, Nano’s strong balance sheet makes the Company ideally positioned to act as a consolidator in the highly fragmented market landscape as it currently assesses transformational and highly accretive projects to continue its strong track record of opportunistic M&A focused on shareholder return-on-investment.
- The Company intends to maintain a balanced capital allocation plan, including returning capital to shareholders with the execution of a $228 million share buyback, thereby optimizing value creation for shareholders.
Murchinson has NO Plan and Intends to Liquidate the Company, Depriving Shareholders of Significant Long-Term Value
- Murchinson is attempting to derail the Company’s progress and replace Nano’s deeply experienced Board members with three unqualified director candidates who have NO additive skills, NO strategic plan, and NO independence from Murchinson.
- Since the rejection of its opportunistic takeover attempt, Murchinson has been deceiving shareholders in order to advance the fund’s own agenda. The fund’s intention is to dismantle Nano to gain access to its significant cash reserves, jeopardizing the future value creation opportunity for other shareholders.
Nano’s Board is Committed to the Highest Standards of Governance – a Highly Qualified Board Oversees its Value Creation Strategy
- The Board consists of 9 highly qualified individuals – 7 of whom are independent – with diverse skills that align with and support the Company’s focus on growth, while taking its portfolio of proprietary manufacturing solutions to the next level.
- Nano’s nominees are exceptionally qualified directors who collectively provide a comprehensive and diverse set of skills relevant to the challenges facing the Company, including expertise across the 3D printing and digital-cloud-manufacturing industry, capital markets, corporate finance, and strategic business development in both the U.S., Europe and Israel.
- Nano has built a corporate structure predicated on balanced access to leadership and engagement with shareholders, all while building momentum and focusing on strategy, execution and value creation.
