Innovative Israeli Green Energy Company TurboGen Sets Sights on NASDAQ IPO

On February 15, 2024, TurboGen entered into a non-binding MOU with a prominent American underwriter, setting the stage for an IPO aimed at raising at least $5 million.

TurboGen, a pioneering Israeli firm specializing in the development of micro-turbines for hybrid electric energy production, has announced its tentative plans to go public on the NASDAQ stock exchange. This strategic decision reflects the company’s ambition to address what is believed to be a multi-billion dollar market opportunity by offering efficient and reliable power and heat generation solutions.

On February 15, 2024, TurboGen entered into a non-binding memorandum of understanding with a prominent American underwriter, setting the stage for an initial public offering (IPO) aimed at raising at least $5 million. This partnership is expected to last up to 10 months or until the completion of the fundraising, granting the underwriter exclusivity in aiding TurboGen’s fundraising efforts in the United States. TurboGen is currently traded on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE: TURB) with a market cap equivalent to approximately 25.5 million dollars, and this move positions it as a dual listed company on both the TASE and the NASDAQ.

Founded on the principles of innovation and sustainability, TurboGen has been at the forefront of developing micro-turbine technology that promises to significantly reduce dependence on traditional electricity grids. The company’s cutting-edge technology is designed to produce electricity and heat in a manner that is not only cost-effective but also environmentally friendly. This technology is particularly suited for a wide range of applications, including residential complexes, hotels, hospitals, and industrial buildings, offering a sustainable alternative to conventional energy sources.

According to the filing in Israel, the decision to list on NASDAQ came after a series of strategic updates and focus shifts within the company aimed at refining its business model and operational efficiency. TurboGen’s journey towards the IPO has been marked by meticulous planning and negotiations with various parties in Israel and abroad, ensuring that the company is well-positioned to attract investment and support for its innovative solutions.

TurboGen has recently announced a number of impressive achievements. Most recently, the company completed the assembly of two additional TG-40 systems powered by natural gas for future installations in the United States. Furthermore, the company previously announced that it initiated the process for regulatory approval through the European Standards Organization (CE), marking a strategic step towards the European market in response to growing interest from investors and potential clients. These announcements followed TurboGen’s receipt of a significant grant from the Innovation Authority for the development of a hybrid micro-turbine, highlighting the company’s ongoing efforts to innovate and integrate its solutions into relevant sectors globally.

This move by TurboGen is timely. With the Biden administration’s commitment of $8.5 billion for energy infrastructure improvements, the nation’s tilt towards sustainable and efficient energy solutions is evident. TurboGen’s potential NASDAQ listing aligns perfectly with this national momentum, giving American investors access to this innovative sector.
