FREMONT, Calif., May 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Actelis Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASNS) (“Actelis” or the “Company”) a market leader in cyber-hardened, rapid deployment networking solutions for IoT applications, today announced the signing of a binding term sheet to acquire between 61% to 75% of the issued and outstanding shares of Quality Industrial Corporation, a Nevada corporation (“QIND”) (OTC: QIND), subject to customary terms for closing.

QIND, whose operations are based out of Dubai, United Arab Emirates (“UAE”), designs, manufactures and supplies solutions for the critical infrastructure industrial and energy sectors. Its operating business reported $11 million in revenue and $1.8 million in net income in 2023 and is projecting substantial growth in 2024. For the first quarter ending March 31, 2024, QIND’s revenues were approximately $3.1 million, and its net income was approximately $0.76 million. With expansion of its customer base, QIND is expecting substantial growth in 2024. QIND currently services nearly 40,000 customers across the UAE with 7 operating facilities and a fleet of dozens of vehicles and approximately 100 employees. They are also internationally certified, local government approved, and its customers include household names such as Emirates Airlines, Emaar, Government of Dubai, Dubai Properties, WASL Group and many others. QIND’s sister company Emergency Response Technologies Inc., who is not part of this transaction, designs, manufactures and supplies patented firefighting technologies and solutions for the public safety sector, and is expected to enable further synergies with Actelis.

Tuvia Barlev, Chairman and CEO of Actelis, stated, “We are excited to team-up with QIND as it opens for us new geographies in the UAE, Gulf Region and Africa with applications in new, critical verticals such as energy, utilities, and public safety. Actelis’ technology is focused on innovation, enabling rapid modernization of critical infrastructure and industries, providing rapid deployment networking in a secure and cost-effective manner, and enabling smart IoT applications and sensors. QIND and other companies in the energy sector need reliable networking, cyber protection, and smart applications to improve their business operations. Remote monitoring for quality of service and safety, automation of delivery and billing, as well as forecasting and supply-chain optimization are all areas that can be strengthened with the Actelis’ technology. The acquisition of QIND allows Actelis to add inorganic, profitable revenue of a recurring nature while offering IoT technology to enhance the operations of QIND and its customers, resulting in smarter and more efficient operation, and enabling faster growth. As contemplated, the acquisition would result in a combined company which had on a proforma basis $17 million in revenue in 2023 with substantial growth projected for 2024.”

John-Paul Backwell, CEO of Quality Industrial Corp., stated, “The joining of Actelis and QIND aligns with our goal of expanding our company by harnessing advanced technologies to increase business efficiencies. Actelis’ solutions can assist in reducing our operational costs through the automation of product delivery and system monitoring, thereby improving our competitiveness and accelerating the growth of our business.”

The companies are planning to close the transaction, pending regulatory requirements and due diligence, within 60 days. The preferred shares shall not be convertible to common stock prior to six months after the closing until such time as a registration statement is declared effective, whichever occurs sooner and shareholders’ approval will be obtained.
