Inpixon has entered into a definitive merger agreement with XTI Aircraft Company. If completed, the merger will result in a combined publicly traded company that will focus on advancing the TriFan 600 to market, as well as continuing to offer Inpixon's real-time location systems technology to manufacturing and warehousing facilities for streamlined operations, greater efficiency, and improved safety.

David Brody, founder and chairman of XTI Aircraft Company, commented: "We're excited to announce this transaction, which we believe will be a transformative event for both companies. We believe that the TriFan 600 airplane will revolutionize point-to-point air travel by combining the comfort, speed, and range of similar conventional business aircraft with the flexibility, convenience, and pinpoint transportation of a helicopter. In 2019, we successfully conducted multiple hover tests of our two-thirds scale unmanned proof-of-concept configuration of the TriFan. After we close, we expect to be in a strong position to expand our operations, work toward building our first full-scale piloted test aircraft, and continue our efforts toward achieving FAA certification and commercial production."

Scott Pomeroy, XTI CFO and board member, said:  "We believe this merger, which results in XTI's listing on NASDAQ, is the logical next step to give XTI access to the broader public capital markets following its earlier Regulation CF and Regulation A offerings. We further believe that our future capital plans are supported by the existing strong demand for the TriFan 600, evidenced by the more than 700 conditional pre-orders under a combination of aircraft purchase agreements, non-binding reservation deposit agreements, and options. These pre-orders represent potential gross revenues of approximately $7.1 billion, based on our current list price of $10 million per aircraft assuming the company is able to execute on the development program for the TriFan, secure FAA certification, and deliver these aircraft."

Nadir Ali, CEO of Inpixon, stated, "We believe that with XTI's experienced executive team and the disruptive potential of the TriFan 600 for the aviation industry, this transaction has the potential to unlock value for Inpixon shareholders. We anticipate that this transaction will not only aid in the growth of XTI but will also enable Inpixon shareholders to own a meaningful interest of approximately 40% of the outstanding common stock of the combined company with a higher valuation in a multibillion-dollar market."
