Disruptive welding technology company, K-TIG, to commence trading on the ASX

  • Written by Media Release

K-TIG Limited (ASX: KTG) (“K-TIG” or the “Company”), a technology company commercialising an industry-disruptive high-speed welding technology, is delighted to announce it has re-listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (“ASX”). This follows the successful acquisition by Serpentine Technologies Limited (which has now been renamed K-TIG Limited).

K-TIG commenced trading today under the ticker “KTG” following the completion of a successful capital raise, raising the maximum subscription amount of $7 million before costs, with strong demand received from institutional investors (including Perennial Value Management and Alium Capital Management), high net worth and retail investors.

Under the offer, the Company issued 35,000,000 shares at a share price of $0.20. The total number of shares on issue is 144,593,344, giving KTIG a market capitalisation of $28.9 million. Alto Capital acted as lead manager to the transaction.

Funds from the raise will be used to support the Company’s growth strategy by enhancing its sales and marketing initiatives, supporting research and development projects, purchasing long lead capital items and providing working capital.

Company Overview

K-TIG is an industry-disruptive welding technology company that is changing the economics of fabrication with its high-speed precision welding technology and its Welding-as-a-Service (WaaS) business model.

K-TIG’s high speed precision technology welds up to 100 times faster than traditional TIG welding, achieving full penetration in a single pass in materials up to 16mm in thickness.

K-TIG’s technology has been developed through seven years of research, technology development, product development and market validation by K-TIG and earlier technology originally developed by the Australian Government’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

The technology is the result of extensive research into the gas-tungsten arc process, keyhole physics, weld pool stabilisation, heat removal and process efficiency. K-TIG owns all rights, title and interest in and to its proprietary and patented technology.

The technology works across a vast range of applications and is particularly well suited to corrosion resistant materials including stainless steel, duplex, super duplex, titanium and a wide range of reactive metals, exotic materials and super alloys.

K-TIG has been exported to customers in 20 countries, with blue-chip customers including GE, Siemens, Bilfinger, Doncasters and the UK Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.

Having thoroughly proven the technology with exhaustive deployment, commissioning, production experience and expertise over this time, K-TIG now seeks to change the economics of fabrication for its customers through the introduction of its Welding-as-a-Service (WaaS) business model, service delivery via its cloud-linked controller and the generation of long-term recurring revenue streams for the Company from a global customer base across multiple fabrication sectors.

Growth Strategy

The Company’s growth strategy is to fundamentally change the economics of fabrication for customers through its highly disruptive technology and its transformative Welding-as-a-Service (WaaS) business model.

The Company will continue to focus on extending the capabilities of its technology and target new and existing markets via its Welding-as-a-Service (WaaS) revenue model. The WaaS business model will provide service delivery via its cloud-linked controller and the generation of long-term recurring revenue streams for K-TIG from a global customer base.

The rollout of K-TIG's subscription licencing model is underway and customers are now being engaged. In the initial stages of rolling out its new revenue model, the Company will be engaging with a number of initial customers to refine its licencing model and WaaS cloud-based service delivery business model.

Corporate

As noted in the Prospectus dated 15 August 2019, Mr Michael Edwards has resigned at completion of the Offers and Acquisition. Mr Kieran Purcell and Mr Syed Shueb have joined the Board. The Board would like to thank Mr Edwards for his contribution.



About K-TIG Limited

K-TIG is a transformative, industry disrupting welding technology that seeks to change the economics of fabrication. K-TIG’s high speed precision technology welds up to 100 times faster than traditional TIG welding, achieving full penetration in a single pass in materials up to 16mm in thickness and typically operates at twice the speed of plasma welding. K-TIG works across a wide range of applications and is particularly well suited to corrosion resistant materials such as stainless steel, nickel alloys, titanium alloys and most exotic materials. It easily handles longitudinal and circumferential welds on pipes, spooling, vessels, tanks and other materials in a single pass. Originally developed by the CSIRO, K-TIG owns all rights, title and interest in and to the proprietary and patented technology, which won the Australian Industrial product of the year award in 2014 and the DTC Defence Industry Member Award in 2015.
