K2 Energy’s decision to focus on clean energy storage, implementing its proprietary lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery technologies, was validated during 2011, as more and more customers completed the qualification process and performed on contract and order commitments which, to the knowledge of the Company, resulted in K2 Energy becoming one of the first profitable LFP battery companies in the US.
"We are particularly proud of this achievement, considering our size and the hurdles to enter the advanced battery market", said Dr. Johnnie Stoker, CEO and a founder of K2, responding to recent commentaries on the industry. "We have done this on the merits of our technology and without the massive government subsidies that our US, Japanese, Korean and Chinese competitors have received. We will continue to work diligently to provide market leading energy performance in our products at prices that make using our technology compelling, while maintaining a sustainable business model."
According to K2 Energy, reaching profitability in 2011 is the result of revenues increasing year-over-year. The company’s impressive growth was recognized nationally in 2011 by Inc. Magazine, when K2 Energy was named the 79th fastest growing, privately held US company and locally by the Technology Business Alliance of Nevada (TBAN) as the 2011 Green Technology Company of the Year.
"We plan to build on this positive momentum as our products continue to gain recognition and integration into large scale applications. We look forward to the challenges and opportunities before us in 2012 and expect to be able to announce new, strategic contracts and design wins as our key customers enter into routine commercial purchases" Dr. Stoker concluded.
