From the expertise gained in developing our product for research applications, we expect several collaborations with major energy companies within 1-2 years. In year 2, we anticipate revenue generation from a combination of catalyst sales and milestone payments. We anticipate becoming cash-flow positive by year 3. The continued success of our catalyst products will make us likely candidates for merger or acquisition by a strategic partner which is anticipated by year 4. At that time we anticipate that initial investors will realize an 8-10 times return on investment.
We are seeking funding for acquisition of key personnel, initial phases of business development, scale up manufacturing of G1 catalyst products and development of G2 catalyst products. Catallowyst plans to augment this investment with funding from SBIR phase I/II grants. We anticipate having our first product line marketable within 12 months, and sales by the middle of year 2.
