April 23, 2021 (Source) — Ideanomics (NASDAQ: IDEX) (“Ideanomics” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that management and employees of the Company will be virtually ringing the NASDAQ closing bell today to celebrate the ending of Earth week this Friday April 23, 2021 at 4:00pm ET.
“We are excited to close out Earth Week with the Nasdaq bell ringing ceremony. Our mission is to drive the sustainability transformation globally and we are excited how our business is developing into a truly global organization which can say it’s making a difference,” said Alf Poor, CEO of Ideanomics.
At Ideanomics, we believe that climate change goals are achievable. As countries around the world transition to clean energy-based economies, Ideanomics is well positioned to provide solutions which meet the demand for sustainable mobility.
Here in the U.S., Ideanomics began the year by investing in the future of smart charging technologies through its acquisition of Utah-based WAVE™. Enabling transit authorities and commercial fleet operators to break free from heavy charging cables, WAVE is helping the commercial fleet sector embrace zero emission wireless charging for their electric mobility needs.
Following our WAVE acquisition, our MEG team in China quickly engaged with our OEM partners to ensure compatibility with WAVE™ charging through integration with Medici Motor Works planned range of trucks and buses. At the end of March, Medici Motor Works showcased 4 buses during our 2020 earnings call that are being imported into the United States for customer demonstration and homologation. Following on from the work with OEM partners, MEG is servicing local inquiries which will bring WAVE’s wireless technology capabilities to mainland China.
Elsewhere in Asia, the Asean region, home to some of the largest 2-wheel and 3-wheel markets in the world, saw Malaysia-based Treeletrik sign a purchase order with Indonesia’s PSE to supply 200,000 of their T-70 electric scooters over three years to the world’s largest two-wheeler market. The initial tranche of 10,000 T-70’s will be shipped from Treeletrik headquarters in Malaysia, and a planned assembly hub in Indonesia will be used to fulfill ongoing orders.
As the global demand for battery and charging technologies continues to grow, Ideanomics announced that it had acquired a 20% stake in Italian public company Energica Motor Company, a market leader in the high-performance motorbike segment. Energica has developed proprietary battery and fast charging technology for the 2- and 3-wheeled market and is the sole manufacturer of motorbikes for the 2019-2022 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup. Energica Motor Company is headquartered Modena, in the heart of Italy’s world-renowned Motor Valley, and is traded on the Italian Bourse in Milan under the symbol EMC.
Leading the automotive markets in efficiency, the high-performance and sportscar market continues to produce some of the most important technological innovations for mainstream automotive manufacturing today. Ideanomics investment in the high-performance EV Auto company, Silk EV, received favorable media coverage this week when the Italian EV Auto Maker showcased their S9 hypercar, in partnership with FAW, at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show.
In the Pacific Islands, Solectrac™ partnered with Kim and Jack Johnson’s Environmental Education Nonprofit, Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation, with Solectrac supplying the electric tractor to serve as an example of sustainable and environmentally friendly farming. Hawaii is a prime example of a pristine environmental area with the capability to efficiently grow crops with little to no carbon footprint, and the foundation exists to help with advocacy and education for local and regional farmers.
As our operations expanded to circle the globe, we arrived back in California where our fintech business segment, Ideanomics Capital, completed the acquisition of Timios Holdings Corp, a leading mortgage title and closing provider dedicated to providing customers with transparency and freedom of choice. Timios has continued its growth trajectory since joining the Ideanomics family, bringing strong revenues and resulting cashflows to the group.
Ideanomics is a catalyst for disruption to those industries where improvements in sustainability, transparency, and freedom of choice would have profound benefits on a global scale. The Ideanomics Mobility division is a service provider which facilitates the adoption of electric vehicles by commercial fleet operators through offering vehicle procurement, finance and leasing, and energy management solutions under our innovative sales to financing to charging (S2F2C) business model. Ideanomics Capital is focused on disruptive fintech solutions for the financial services industry. Together, Ideanomics Mobility & Capital provide our global customers and partners with leading technologies and services designed to improve transparency, efficiency, and accountability, and our shareholders with the opportunity to participate in high-potential, growth industries.
The company is headquartered in New York, NY, with operations in the U.S., China, Ukraine, and Malaysia.
