What Patents Mean to EN3

Public

Dear Companists,

Many people have asked us about our patents. Our expertise and our ideas are the most valuable asset of EN3. The protection of this knowledge through technical property rights is an important tool for technology companies like EN3 in particular because it helps achieve a market position and keep this position over the long term.

Patents provide us with a monopoly on our technology that is guaranteed by the government. Our patent strategy has two primary goals: First, our patents are meant to protect us from a theft of ideas by unauthorized imitators; second, our patents are supposed to ensure our own freedom to operate in regard to both new and existing products and procedures. We thus protect our own developmental edge over our competitors and prevent our company from being hampered by competitors at the same time

Patents as a Basis for Licensing

Moreover, patents represent a basis for issuing licensing rights and rights of use, which we intend to use as a source of revenue in the future. Licenses in the area of mechanical engineering cost between 3 % and 10 % of the revenue generated through the licensed technology. A brief sample calculation will explain what this could mean:

In 2013, a total of 5.2 million engines for commercial vehicles were made. If we assumed a sales price of 300 euros for the expander in the case of mass production of 100,000 units and if we also assumed licensing fees of 5 %, this would result in annual earnings of 1.5 million euros. These earnings would directly influence our annual results. Developing similar systems takes approx. 5 to 7 years in the automotive sector, i.e., the related earnings are not generated immediately. However, we want to enter into negotiations on our technology shortly.

Broad Patent Portfolio

Often, a single patent is insufficient for negotiations. We have deliberately created a broad patent portfolio in order to be able to cover the many areas of application of our expertise. We have applied for 12 patents and utility models on the national and – in some cases – on the international level so far. Some of these have already been granted in Germany, Russia, China, and Japan.

 

Free of Third-Party Rights

All previous research – our own research and that of international patent offices – on the state of technology has proven that the EN3 solutions are free of third-party rights, i.e., that EN3 possesses the complete freedom to operate in the area of heat/waste heat usage in small power ranges. 

We are currently preparing additional patent applications, some of which we will submit as early as this year.

For reasons of competition, we do not want to publish our patent portfolio on the internet because this would be for the benefit neither of most Companists nor of our institutional investors. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Best regards,

The EN3 team

NOTE:

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the Companists are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the Companists – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, crowdfunding investments are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
