Xeriant Signs Joint Venture with Movychem
BOCA RATON, Fla., April 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Xeriant, Inc. (OTC PINK: XERI), a new aerospace technology holding company, announced today that its Czech Republic affiliate, Xeriant Europe s.r.o., has entered into a joint venture with Movychem s.r.o. (“Movychem”), a 27-year-old chemical company based in Slovakia, primarily to further develop applications and new markets for its breakthrough “green” fire retardant and fire resistant products under the brand name Retacell. Under the agreement, Xeriant Europe has a 50 percent stake in Movychem Holdings s.r.o., which will hold all intellectual property rights and patents, as well as exclusivity for distribution of Movychem products in the U.S. market.
“The Movychem JV is consistent with our strategy to acquire technologies that advance sustainability and safety in aerospace and can produce near-term revenue. Many of these innovations have applications in other industries. The new electric aircraft being developed will need to be optimized for aerodynamics and lightweighting, as well as safety, and Movychem’s Retacell has the potential to play a critical role in this mission,” stated Keith Duffy, CEO of Xeriant Aerospace.
Retacell is a breakthrough eco-friendly fire and thermal protection technology that is biodegradable and non-toxic, and can be infused into a variety of plastics, foams, sealants, fillers, adhesives and coatings, as well as textiles and wood-derived products. Movychem is in the process of initiating testing on Retacell treated plastics, textiles, wood-derived materials and carbon fiber. The number of potential applications is almost unlimited in the transportation and construction industries.
The breakthrough thermal and fire protection properties of Retacell could have broad implications in aerospace for the engine, wiring, structural and interior components of flight vehicles, including the insulation of batteries utilized in electric aircraft propulsion systems. Movychem initially plans to test Retacell on the thermoplastics and foams used in aircraft cabin interiors, for floors, ceilings, wall panels and seats. To achieve certification, Movychem plans to work with aircraft materials suppliers, component manufacturers and major airframe manufacturers to produce the safest and most durable materials, with the goal of exceeding all fire, smoke and toxicity requirements according to Federal Aviation Regulations.
“We invested nearly 20 years of R&D in Retacell to make this one of most important advancements in fire and heat protection. Our product is more cost-effective and safer for the environment than competing technologies, and there is greater application flexibility. Teaming up with Xeriant will best position our efforts to not only enter the U.S. market, but to compete for a piece of the global vehicle interiors markets, including aircraft and automobiles, as well as construction materials,” commented JUDr. Lubos Nemecek, Managing Member of Movychem.
About Movychem s.r.o.
Founded in 1993, Movychem s.r.o. (“Movychem”), the creator of Retacell, is a chemical manufacturing company that develops and distributes specialty materials, primarily in Central Europe. Their product line includes sealants, adhesives, fillers, additives, colorants, paints, coatings, fire retardants, and waterproofing materials for a variety of industries and applications. In 2001, Movychem began its research, development and testing of its fire and thermal protection technologies, called Retacell, which led to several global patents. Until 2019, the company was not engaged in the marketing and distribution of Retacell, because its focus was on R&D, testing and certification.
About Xeriant Europe
Xeriant Europe s.r.o., headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic, was founded with the purpose of identifying leading-edge green technologies with applications in aerospace, primarily from the Czech Republic, and promoting them on the world market, especially in the U.S. The company’s focus is on unique products that are either already being sold or are close to commercialization.

Xeriant Aerospace) is a holding and operating company focused on acquiring, developing, and commercializing revolutionary, eco-friendly technologies with applications in aerospace, including innovative aircraft concepts targeting emerging opportunities within the aviation industry.

Xeriant is located at the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida adjacent to the Boca Raton Airport.

Improved operational performance:
The inventoried products, essentially 20 automatic ISS Spotter systems, have been marketed or are in the process of being marketed. The shipment and installation of several of these systems had to be delayed due to the health crisis.
The Countbot inventory solution represents the majority of the capitalised production and will allow the development and deployment of the solution in the context of service missions, as soon as the general context is more favourable.
Purchases of goods and raw materials consumed:
For the past two years, it was the launch of industrial production in the first pre-series of professional solutions.
Other external purchases and expenses:
The drop of 300K euros between 2019 and 2020 is a direct result of the management efforts carried out under the 2020-2021 plan.
The cost reduction of 1.2 million euros also proves the efforts made to follow the plan. It resolutly contributes to the objective of achieving a fixed level of expenses in line with a profitable operation, without jeopardizing the Group’s development. Indeed, the staff out of the workforce corresponds to a rationalization of the organization more in line with the Activities of the Group.
The sale and discontinuation of several activities and entities that have become non-strategic and structurally loss-making explain the importance of the level reached in 2020. The complete disappearance of these expenses as early as the 2021 financial year will contribute decisively to the objective of reaching the break-even point for the Group.
The financial result increased from a positive balance of 513K euros in 2019 to a deficit of 583K euros in 2020, a deterioration of 1.1 million euros. These movements and their balance are always mostly registered with no impact on cash flow and in connection with the in-depth reorganization of the Group’s organization chart.
The exceptional result was strongly negative at 2.1 million euros. In particular, it corresponds to costs related to the operations of discontinuation of activities and disposal of entities, in connection with the effects also observed in terms of the financial result.
Equity and related assets:
Thanks to the financing program set up with the investment fund Yorkville Advisors, the Group can continue to pursue its development program with serenity, while securing its financial structure. This strategic choice is reinforced over the months, as the outcome of the health crisis remains uncertain, especially in terms of its inevitable economic consequences, while limiting indebtedness to institutional financial partners whose excessive and uncontrolled recourse would necessarily lead to a dangerous development in the coming years.
As of March 19, 2021, net cash amounted to 3.1 million euros.
Nb. The Group’s detailed accounts are available in French and English on the Group’s website (www.deltadrone.com).
Continuation of the 2020-2021 strategic plan:
It should be recalled in the preamble that the Group’s management is part of the 2020-2021 plan, the three main areas of which are a consolidated turnover of 30 million euros, a positive operating profitability equal to 10% of turnover and 30% of the activity carried out outside France.
The implementation of this plan is based on an organisation in two areas of activity, professional solutions and associated services, on the other hand on dynamic international development, mainly in Africa and Oceania. It requires sufficient financial resources to be carried out because it requires significant investments, both in terms of research and development, and industrialization, as well as in the resources needed for commercial development.
In terms of systems designed and manufactured, it is important to be particularly vigilant at a time when a “new world order” is emerging in the sector of civilian drones for professional use, gradually excluding any components of Chinese origin. Historically, Delta Drone has always chosen proprietary designs by using “on-shelf” components from Asia in a very marginal way. On the other hand, this evolution is likely to turn the tables on many players in the sector, often simple assemblers from purchased technologies.
Finally, it should be stressed that the strategy developed by the Group also relies on taking a stake in companies in the international drone ecosystem, so as to enable Delta Drone to have privileged relationships with innovative companies whose activities are in synergy with its own technical and commercial developments.
In the final analysis, the weight of the health crisis and the related uncertainties, especially over its duration, make it very difficult to project on the future.
The three major axes described in the 2020-2021 plan remain achievable, obviously more random. In this context, the Group continues to focus on achieving a profitability situation. The figures for fiscal year 2020, and even more so in the second half of the year, are encouraging in this regard and put us on the right track.
