GAMCO/Gabelli bought over 6% of UQM. Does he think the kerfuffle from shareholders unhappy with the price will play out or is he just cashing on the run to $1.71 over the next few months? Could also be the combination of the two. He gets paid over 3% to wait for either outcome. I think I will wait with him.

Shareholders Cry Foul as UQM Agrees to Buyout

UQM Technologies (UQM:  NYSE) has agreed to be acquired by Danfoss Power Solutions for $1.71 per share in cash, providing a deal value near $100 million.  UQM leadership expects timely review by government authorities and has recommended approval of the deal by shareholders.  A date has not been set for the required shareholder vote.  Assuming all goes according to schedule, a deal closing is possible sometime in the second quarter 2019.

Electric propulsion and generation technologies are at the core of UQM’s solutions for manufacturing, transportation and power industries.  The substitution of electric motors for combustion engines has been driving demand for the UQM’s products.  Market opportunities have abounded for UQM and the world economy attempts to wean itself off environmentally damaging fossil fuels.  The company has reported steady increases in sales for the last five years, mushrooming to $10.9 million in the twelve months ending September 2018.

Some UQM shareholders may find inadequate the offer of $1.71 per share. During a conference call held with shareholders to discuss the Danfoss offer, UQM management cited competitive concerns as the primary reason behind the decision to accept the offer.  Demand conditions are excellent but the team sounded a practical caution on the challenges of capturing market share for a small company strong on technology and light on market access.

As rosy as the market opportunity might look, UQM’s management team know they are in a game for big boys and girls.  The market for motors, generators and compressors has matured to the point it is dominated by large manufacturers.  Customers are accustomed to choosing from extended product lines and receiving attention from worldwide networks of sales and service personnel.   Let’s not forget the confidence-building impression the plump balance sheet of a large company can make on customers ordering mission critical equipment.  UQM may have exceptional technology needed for adopting fuel cell technology or hybrid electric power systems, but it lacks the girth of its better established competitors.

The UQM-Danfoss tie-up is also not the first strategic move in the industry. In July 2017, automotive components supplier BorgWarner (BWA:  NYSE)snapped up one of UQM’s competitors, Sevcon, for $200 million.  Sevcon’s propulsion solutions encompassed conventional combustion systems as well as electric and hybrid systems.  A supplier of components to OEMs, Meritor, Inc. (MTOR:  NYSE), made a strategic investment in TransPower to gain access to Transpower’s electrification technologies for large commercial vehicles.  Deals are being made and those that are left out could find competition with the new combinations composed of ‘small company technology’ and ‘large company market reach’ more and more challenging.

UQM Technologies reported a net loss of $6.8 million on the $10.9 million in revenue for the last reported twelve months.  Cash usage during that period was $5.4 million, making it clear the company still needs outside financial support to keep the doors open and lights on.  Marketing and sales campaigns require investment, not to mention the working capital to fulfill orders.  The reality of the company’s situation is that to get a bite of the evolving electric propulsion and power generation market, UQM would require some sort of dilutive capital raise.  A strategic deal provides an interesting alternative to a financing, but retaining control might have also cost UQM shareholders dearly in the form of commissions or shared profits.

In comparison to the alternatives, at $1.71 per share UQM holders may be getting something close to fair value. The analysis may make some sense, but it does not take the sting out of the fact that after bearing the risks of an unprofitable company, UQM holders are getting shut out of the company’s future.  Danfoss Power Solutions, a part of privately held Danfoss Group, is swallowing up UQM Technologies in an all-cash deal.
The deal is likely to be successful, delivering strong sales for Danfoss. UQM’s fuel cell compressor system and all its other products will take a place in the Danfoss portfolio of hydraulic and electronic systems that are mostly marketed to off-highway vehicle markets.  Adding the UQM technology will give Danfoss a better position with manufacturers of electric buses and trucks.

The deal will also help Danfoss burnish its reputation as a ‘green’ company.  The company’s 2017 Sustainability Report provides a view on Danfoss goals to operate responsibly, an image which has to help in conversations with electric bus and truck manufacturers who needs to reduce carbon and increase energy efficiency in their supply chains.

So there it is. UQM holders are most likely than not to get a check for $1.71 per share.  We note that for most it might be a celebration.  Over the last eighteen years, the greatest volume is at prices near below $1.00.   Looking at trades in the most recent five years, we observe that the majority were at prices below $0.60.  However, in the last twelve months things have looked rosier for UQM Technologies and we find significant historic trading volumes at the $1.00 price level and $1.35.  Even for those who may have grabbed some shares at the 52-week high price of $1.66, Danfoss is offering a nickel gain.

Neither the author of the Small Cap Strategist web log, Crystal Equity Research nor its affiliates have a beneficial interest in the companies mentioned herein.

You will get paid $1.71 per share. All cash transaction. There will be no shares of UQM after the close of the deal.

The Longmont, Colorado company, a developer of alternative energy technologies, announced the deal Monday, under which Danfoss will acquire all outstanding common shares of UQM for $1.71 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $100 million, including the assumption of UQM’s debt.

Danfoss, a privately-owned multinational company with reported sales of €5.8 billion in 2017 (2018 full-year results to be released on February 28), is a leading manufacturer of hydraulic systems, drives, motors, and components for the automotive, aerospace, HVAC, and energy industries.

The merger anticipates that UQM will become part of the Danfoss Power Solutions segment.

UQM Technologies Signs Definitive Agreement to be Acquired by Danfoss

January 21, 2019

UQM Stockholders to Receive $1.71 per Share in Cash; Conference Call

January 22, 2019 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern

LONGMONT, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- UQM Technologies, Inc. (NYSE American: UQM) (“UQM” or the “Company”), a developer of alternative energy technologies, today announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement with the Danfoss Power Solutions (US) Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Denmark-based Danfoss A/S (“Danfoss”), under which Danfoss will acquire all outstanding common shares of UQM for $1.71 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $100 million, including the assumption of UQM’s debt. Danfoss, a privately-owned multinational company with reported sales of €5.8 billion in 2017 (2018 full year results to be released on February 28), is a leading manufacturer of hydraulic systems, drives, motors, and components for the automotive, aerospace, HVAC, and energy industries. The merger anticipates that UQM will become part of the Danfoss Power Solutions segment.

The cash consideration represents a premium of approximately 52.5% over UQM’s closing share price on January 18, 2019 and a 71.4% premium to its weighted average trading price over the trailing 60 days. The transaction will be funded with Danfoss' cash on hand and is not subject to any financing condition. The merger agreement was unanimously agreed to by the Boards of Directors of both UQM and Danfoss; GDG Green Dolphin, LLC – which holds approximately 7.4% of the issued and outstanding shares of UQM – and all UQM directors and officers have executed Voting and Support Agreements in favor of the acquisition. Closing of the transaction is subject to approval by two-thirds of UQM shareholders and by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”) as well as other customary closing conditions.

Joe Mitchell, UQM Technologies’ President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We believe UQM will be an excellent addition to Danfoss as our products, business model, strategy and focus are closely aligned. Being part of a larger global enterprise will greatly improve our position to compete with other international players, open doors to new markets, and provide critical resources for UQM to continue developing the highly-engineered electric propulsion products we’re known for today. We believe the transaction positions UQM well for the future – particularly in key geographies such as China and India, where Danfoss already operates – and provides an attractive return for our shareholders. We’re proud of our many accomplishments and look forward to a future with Danfoss, with which we can enhance service for our customers, invest in technology, and adapt to the ever-changing dynamics of our core markets."

Kim Fausing, President & CEO of Danfoss, added, "It is a great pleasure to announce this transaction with UQM, which will position Danfoss for even stronger performance in the industries we serve. We see fast-growing demand for electric solutions within buses and trucks, off-highway vehicles, and marine markets in response to the more stringent emission regulations being imposed – stimulating interest in the efficiency and productivity gains our solutions bring. With an established North American presence, UQM will complement our global sales and manufacturing footprint nicely, further cementing our strong position in the marine as well as on- and off-highway markets. I look forward to welcoming the UQM team to Danfoss and our business."
The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2019, subject to approval by UQM’s shareholders and CFIUS.

December 17, 2018

LONGMONT, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- UQM Technologies, Inc. (NYSE American: UQM) (“UQM” or the “Company”), a developer of alternative energy technologies, today announced it has won an order from a major fuel cell system supplier in China for UQM’s Fuel Cell Compressor System (“FCS”).

Third Quarter Highlights
Revenue of $4.4 million, up 59% compared to the third quarter of 2017

“UQM marked another quarter of strong top line growth and new purchase orders as we continued making progress on our path to profitability,” said Joe Mitchell, UQM Technologies’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “Revenue rose nearly 60% year-over-year – underscoring robust demand – while lower margins reflected product mix and ongoing business investment. During the period we further advanced our development work with Meritor, grew the Company’s presence in China, and focused on other international expansion opportunities such as India. We announced $3 million of new Chinese orders for fuel cell compressor systems as well as an incremental award from Lightning Systems, while also showcasing our technology at a major trade show in Michigan. In addition, we’ll be introducing a fully-integrated fuel cell compressor system at an upcoming expo in China. Overall we believe the positive trends of the past two quarters will continue going forward, leaving us positioned for strong growth and improved bottom line results heading into 2019.”

Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2018

The initial total capital of the joint venture will be $24 million, with UQM contributing $6 million in three installments during the next year. UQM’s funding requirement is contingent on the closing of the Second Stage Investment with CNHTC, in accord with the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement signed by both parties on August 25, 2017.

Closing of the second stage investment will require approval by UQM’s shareholders and clearance by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”). The parties expect the second stage investment to close as soon as those approvals are received.

As part of the Agreement, upon the closing of the first stage investment, Mr. Ma Chunji, Chairman of CNHTC, has been appointed to the Board of UQM as a non-voting observer member. Upon the closing of the second stage investment, (i) UQM will increase the size of its Board to eight members, (ii) the Board observer shall have all the rights of a full Board member and (iii) CNHTC will have the right to nominate two additional Board members, with one CNHTC representative expected to be elected as the Chairman of the Board of UQM.

After the closing of the second stage investment, UQM and CNHTC intend to form a joint venture for the manufacture and sale of electric propulsion systems in China. The parties expect Sinotruk to be a significant purchaser of electric propulsion systems from the joint venture, and other customers will be identified for sales as well. The parties are continuing their work to complete the definitive agreement that will define the terms of this joint venture in China.

“The closing of the first stage investment is a significant milestone in our new relationship with CNHTC,” said Joe Mitchell, President and CEO of UQM. “The proceeds from this investment add strength and stability to our balance sheet. We are now actively engaged to obtain approvals from our shareholders and from the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), so that we can finalize the second stage investment from CNHTC. This will allow us to execute on our strategy to become a major player in the electric vehicle propulsion market in China.”

UQM GM will go all electric by 2023. UQM could well be a buyout sooner than later. Great product line and high efficiency nonrare earth intellectual assets.

UQM So with the second stage of the China investment coming up for a Proxy vote, anyone know the purchase price per share? It could relate to a moving average but I'm not certain. I am looking at buying in here but want to make sure the price won't drop all at once.

UQM So the cash injection will offset the cost of ramping up production to meet the new future orders. This is setting up nicely.
