Phoenix Motor Strengthens Capital Structure by Negotiating Key Waiver with Note Holder

ANAHEIM, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 25, 2024 / Phoenix Motor Inc. (NASDAQ:PEV) (the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses and electrification solutions provider for medium-duty vehicles, today announced it signed a waiver agreement with JAK Opportunities II LLC, one of the Company's principal investors, eliminating a potential $12 million convertible promissory note issuance related to a Securities Purchase Agreement (SPA) signed in November 2023.

"Recent capital raising activities have provided us with a solid foundation to accelerate our growth initiatives while eliminating the need to incur further dilution related to the SPA," said Denton Peng, CEO of Phoenix Motor. "We want to thank JAK Opportunities for working with our team to reach an agreement that strengthens our capital structure and enhances overall shareholder value."

"The waiver agreement not only prevents dilution of existing shares but also reflects the strong confidence our investors place in our operational strategy and our financial health," added Peng. "The eliminated obligation to issue the note is a testament to the effectiveness of our ongoing efforts to optimize our capital structure and strategically allocate resources towards growth and innovation in the rapidly evolving EV space."

Looking ahead, Phoenix Motor is poised to leverage its enhanced capital flexibility to expand its product lines and increase market penetration in key segments of the EV industry, including scaling up production capabilities and continuing to innovate in the design and functionality of the Company's electrification solutions for both transit buses and medium-duty vehicles.
