MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 9, 2022 / SQL Technologies Corp.

First Quarter 2022 and Subsequent Highlights:
- The Company anticipates starting presales of the smart connected smart SkyPlug, the all-in-one Sky Platform smart home solution and the accompanying SkyHome App – as well as an accompanying line of GE-branded smart ceiling fans and lighting fixtures – in the second half of 2022.
- Appointed Mark Earley, the former Chief Electrical Engineer of The National Electrical Code (NEC), to spearhead Sky’s Safety Advisory Board as it seeks to work with regulators to encourage adoption of the SkyPlug & Receptacle by domestic and international electrical code organizations.
- Appointed world-renowned architect Bernard Zyscovich as Chair of the newly formed Architectural and Real Estate Advisory Board, which is expected to drive adoption of Sky’s smart platforms into multi-family residential buildings and communities.
- Appointed insurance expert and E&Y 2017 Entrepreneur of the Year (Midwest Region), Paul Chernawsky, as Chair of the newly formed Insurance Advisory Board, with the goal of driving insurance companies and regulators to encourage adoption of the safety enhancing SkyPlug and associated smart platforms.
- Successfully completed its upsized $23.1 million initial public offering (IPO) on the Nasdaq Capital Market, selling 1,650,000 shares of common stock to the public at $14 per share.
- As of March 31, 2022, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents were $27.6 million.
“The first quarter of 2022 was highlighted by our upsized $23.1 million IPO on the Nasdaq, which built the foundation for an accelerated commercialization pathway and product launches,” said Rani Kohen, Executive Chairman of Sky Technologies. “We are now leveraging this significant momentum to position ourselves for the upcoming launch of our smart connected SkyPlug, the all-in-one Sky Platform smart home solution and the accompanying SkyHome App – as well as an accompanying line of GE-branded smart ceiling fans and smart Plug bases for light fixtures – in the second half of 2022.
“We are planning a pre-sales and public relations campaign that will highlight the life-saving aspects, home safety benefits, cost savings, time savings and smart features of our products. We are collaborating with two marketing groups specializing in disruptive products to support our online, retail, wholesale and OEM product launch. We believe that the total addressable market for our platform products is in excess of $500 billion in the United States, spanning most every room imaginable, in homes, buildings, hotel rooms, cruise ships, hospitals, offices, retail and more.
“We have taken significant steps to put in place a strong management team, Board of Directors and advisory boards to guide our commercialization and product launches. During the quarter, we created several new advisory boards to be chaired by industry leaders, with the aim of getting insurance companies, regulators and real estate developers to encourage adoption of our technology due to its life-saving and home safety aspects. We believe that this is the foundation of a sound diving board for securing support and adoption of our technologies from any one of these groups,” concluded Kohen.
