FARMINGDALE, N.Y.—November 26, 2018 – Cemtrex Inc. (Nasdaq: CETX, CETXP, CETXW),
a world-leading technology and manufacturing company, today provided more information regarding its upcoming rights offering.
“We currently have a backlog of approximately 800 SmartDesks and this offering will provide funds to help fulfill these orders by getting 1500 SmartDesks delivered in our warehouse from our supply chain in
the coming weeks,” said Saagar Govil, CEO of Cemtrex. “With 1500 SmartDesks on hand, we will also be able to accommodate the requirements of new clients who want be part of our Enterprise sales program and furthermore, we will be able
to immediately deliver any new orders, eliminating the wait that customers might face. Once these 1500 SmartDesks are shipped, we will generate revenue of approximately $7.5 million, and with 35% gross margins, a hefty profit of $2.6 million. These
funds will be reinvested into the production of the next batch of SmartDesks.”
Cemtrex is transitioning rapidly from a low-margin electronics contract manufacturer to a high-margin, innovative technology company with its own proprietary patent pending products. Cemtrex has experienced five-year revenue growth of 58% CAGR and had fiscal year 2017 sales of $120.6 million, up from 2013 sales of $12 million. The Company intends to spend $1-$2M in on-going R&D expenses for fiscal year 2019. The Company anticipates that as demand for the SmartDesk continues to increase this will offset the R&D expenditure.
“The Desktop PC market has not seen any innovation in the last 30 years, and it’s truly a commoditized, mature industry that is perfect for disruption. With our patent-pending, cutting-edge product, the Company can really go out and disrupt
this $80 billion industry with an average price per unit of $5,000 and attractive gross margins. Globally, there are about 100 million units sold annually, and we think that in three years we can easily sell at least 100,000 units. That would be approximately
$500 million of revenue for the company,” Govil said.
SmartDesk is gaining traction in the business community with the Company’s recent focus on Enterprise customers. The Company has received orders from notable organizations like the City of Atlanta and VMware. The SmartDesk has generated orders from
Fortune 500 companies like Black & Decker and United Airlines as well as from government organizations and universities alike.
