Under the 10-year agreement, graphite materials provider NeoGraf will sell First Grapheneâs PureGRAPH products under the U.S companyâs Graf-X brand, which has an established reputation in the U.S market, according to First Graphene.
Achieving the minimum uptake of two tonnes in the first year of the partnership results in potential revenue for the company of between $305,000 and $375,000 annually depending on the mix of products ordered.
Increasing the minimum to 10 tonnes per annum in year four onwards generates annual revenues for First Graphene of between $1.5 million and $1.8 million, again depending on product mix and based on current pricing models.
If the annual minimum tonnages are not met, the agreement reverts to a non-exclusive arrangement.
âThis deal provides a direct path into several established and emerging sectors in the U.S,â First Graphene Managing Director and CEO Michael Bell said.
âNot only is NeoGraf a well-known, U.S-based company, but it has a strong reputation and relationships with key organizations in target industries that know and understand how graphene can benefit them.â
