“The fourth quarter of 2021 represented a transformational period for Sky Technologies, building the foundation for our transition to a public company – further accelerated by the infusion of new capital from our IPO to expedite our commercialization pathway,” said Rani Kohen, Executive Chairman of Sky Technologies. “We believe our Nasdaq listing will help elevate the Company’s public profile, expand our shareholder base, improve liquidity and enhance shareholder value. The net proceeds to Sky Technologies from the offering amounted to $20 million.
“Launch of our next-generation SkyPlug and Sky Platform product lines are moving ahead, and we anticipate coming to market with both products this year. The SkyPlug enables consumers to install plug-and-play smart home fixtures into a receptacle quickly and safely without the need for a professional installer, and the Sky Platform is an all-in-one smart home solution, integrating several smart home & safety features such as a motion sensor, security camera and Wi-Fi extender. We believe our breakthrough platform technology has the ability to become the standard for smart home and office fixtures, with countless applications and potential addressable installations in the billions globally.
“Moving into 2022 we expect to launch our new universal SkyPlug, our SkyHome App, and our smart SkyPlug, as well as an accompanying line of smart ceiling fans and lighting fixtures leveraging GE-branding through our branding and licensing partnership with General Electric, in the first half of 2022. This will be followed by the launch of our widely anticipated, all-in-one Sky Platform in the second half of 2022. In anticipation, we are ramping our go-to-market strategy to include public relations and marketing campaigns that emphasize education of our products and how they can be used to create safer and smarter homes. We expect to provide additional announcements on our product launch timeline in the coming months – helping to create sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders.”
