May 20, 2021 (AB Digital via COMTEX) — Don’t let the softening share price fool you. Alternet Systems, Inc. (USOTC: ALYI) is laying the groundwork to have what could be a transformative back half of the year. In fact, last week ALYI announced its intention to deliver 2000 EV motorcycles in July to serve the surging African boda-boda motorcycle rideshare market. Successful delivery of the bikes could quickly push ALYI back toward its February highs of roughly $0.20, more than 300% higher than current prices.
Better still, while the production launch and delivery of 2000 EV motorcycles is certainly a milestone reached, it’s also only the first of several more expected later this year. Participating in the estimated $4 billion African rideshare sector is one thing; taking the initiative to build a massive supporting EV ecosystem takes the near term opportunities for ALYI to the highest level. And with its finance partner, RevoltToken having committed to invest upwards of $100 million into the comprehensive project, current prices for ALYI stock might be the most undervalued in their history.
Moreover, Alternet is seizing a new opportunity that adds to its presence in the African markets. Beyond serving users in the rideshare market, ALYI is advancing plans to launch a self-drive rental program to complement its rideshare business. In an update last week, ALYI said it plans to rent electric motorcycles in Kenya that can be activated through a smartphone app. And its plans are timely.
In fact, ALYI won’t be far behind Bird, the shared electric scooter company scheduled to go public through a SPAC later this year. Incidentally, that deal with Switchback II (NYSE: SWBK) has already earned an implied valuation of $2.3 billion. And they do what ALYI plans to do…rent electric scooters in urban areas that can be unlocked via a mobile phone app. The difference, though, is that ALYI is taking advantage of a massive untapped Kenya market, where providing electric motorcycles accessible via a mobile phone app could become an enormously lucrative venture.
Best of all, ALYI has a lot more on its development plate for 2021
Alternet Systems is Poised for Rapid Growth in 2021
Despite the markets continued beatdown of EV sector stocks, Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) again delivered a massive quarter that again exceeded investor expectations. That news initially drove EV company prices substantially higher. However, a wave of bad economic data, rising interest rates, and slowing job growth spooked the markets enough to take back all its gains. Tesla is down more than 18% since posting one of its best quarters in history. But, don’t expect TSLA, or other EV companies, to stay down for long. When risk returns back to the market, it’s expected that the sector will lead the gainers.
After all, Tesla is the leading barometer of health within the EV sector. And despite its wild swings, the message they sent was to stay long in the EV sector. And for ALYI investors, the remainder of this year can be transformational to the company – and here’s why.
Foremost, the most compelling aspect to the ALYI story is that they are creating more than just an exciting electric motorcycle. Behind the innovative and well-designed ReVolt EV motorcycle is a growing ecosystem expected to bring significant value to companies in the sector. ALYI is helping to lead the charge to build and benefit from an Electric Vehicle (EV) Ecosystem that commits to a perpetual period of research and development for battery-powered transportation technologies. Its plans were detailed in an April update that set near and long term strategies to reach lofty goals. Best of all, the strategy inherently offers multiple shots on revenue-generating goals, with ALYI pursuing simultaneous projects that can benefit from an evolution of transportation networks surrounding EV technologies.
And while the pandemic-related headwinds slowed development progress, ALYI is far from stalled. In fact, the current share price, likely broader market related, entirely neglects the near term milestones coming this July.
A Successful Beginning Has Generated Serious Momentum
The great news for ALYI shareholders is that the actions needed to generate meaningful shareholder value have already begun. Already, ALYI teased with the unveiling of an electric motorcycle concept that will serve as the basis for its first order of 2,000 electric motorcycles in Africa. That deal takes advantage of the booming motorcycle taxi (boda boda) market, where demand for more fuel-efficient vehicles is expected to rise as the technology becomes more accessible.
And ALYI is well-positioned to extend its reach in the market by creating, in a partnership with iQSTEL, Inc. (OTC: IQST), a communication-technology-enabled rideshare platform offering a number of user benefits. The strategies are targeting US markets as well.
Although the ReVolt EV motorcycle will make its service debut in Africa later this year, ALYI is focused on bringing a version of the ReVolt back the United States. Inspired by the pre-sale interest, ALYI introduced the Retro Revolt Electric Motorcycle, a bike that will be sold in limited quantities in North America. The limited-edition cycle is intended to raise awareness of ALYI’s broader plan to help reduce carbon emissions by facilitating a wider adoption of electric vehicles in the transportation and ride-sharing industry – and the style, efficiency, and reliability of the bike are likely to attract significant interest.
Even better from an operational perspective, ALYI recently highlighted its operating plan that reduces early-stage operational costs by retaining revenue-generating coincidental services contracts. The deals outlined in ALYI’s recently released Annual Report for FY2020 show its staying power and willingness to go the distance toward meeting its latest EV sector goals. The good news is that adjustments to base operations are keeping financial obligations manageable, which allows the company to maintain an ample ability to pursue its EV Ecosystem vision.
Perhaps its biggest asset is its relationship with RevoltTOKEN, the company’s financial partner.
RevoltTOKEN Partnership to Provide New Opportunities
ALYI is expected to get the funding it needs to create, develop, and commercialize assets from its finance partner, RevoltToken.
ALYI unveiled its investment strategy earlier this year, taking on a cryptocurrency approach to financing that limits dilution of its common stock to raise capital. That will happen through its partnership with RevoltTOKEN , which will serve to support the funding of ALYI’s EV Ecosystem. Information about RevoltToken can be found at rvlttoken.com. The site details plans of how the token will benefit ALYI and also provides information on how to purchase and store the token. RevoltToken is expected to become available for purchase on one or more cryptocurrency exchanges in the near future, and look for updates included with ALYI press releases.
More good news on the financial front came when ALYI revealed that it had completed a $1 million raise at a $0.10 price point to finance its latest EV ecosystem investment and growth initiatives. The deal will help ALYI extend its operations past its existing rideshare entry point. It also provides ALYI with regional growth potential that will allow the company to expand operations well beyond its East African focus.
There’s more value from its iQSTEL, Inc. partnership.
A Potentially Transformative Partnership with IQST
An especially important partnership is with iQSTEL, Inc., with the two working together to advance develop-stage projects toward commercialization. The first joint effort is to develop innovative battery designs that could help revolutionize the industry. The advanced innovations use HD thin-film technology in one and industrial hemp in the other. The excellent news is that both technologies are able to deliver a final product that is potentially more sturdy and longer-lasting than existing EV battery options. This potential could prove enormous in the long run, extending its application opportunities well beyond electric motorcycles.
Further, the team is working to develop geolocation, battery management, break-in and crash interfacing with EMS, and remote maintenance capabilities that could provide a substantial advantages compared to current communications products on the market. Specifically, the comprehensive framework is designed to support vehicle body and component leasing services, driver and passenger personal mobile interfaces, and a rideshare interface. ALYI believes the system, just like its battery prototype, could attract business from even its rivals as its benefits could have widespread appeal to those already operating in the EV industry.
iQSTEL, by the way, is expected to reach $60.5 million in sales this year. They also partner with Fortune 500 companies and have several international projects that could drive their value substantially higher. In other words, they are a good partner to have on the ALYI team.
2021 Could Bring Massive Value to Shareholders
Indeed, ALYI stocks appears quite attractive at current levels. And for those holding the stock, despite the recent pullback, the stock is still higher by than 340% year to date. With Tesla demonstrating that the market is stable despite some component supply delays, ALYI’s consolidation at these levels may reward investors sooner rather than later.
As noted, the expected production launch and selling of ALYI’s ReVolt EV motorcycles in Kenya could send the stock back toward its February high. As investors know, ALYI stock moves on news, and actually jumped 19% intraday after a “sneak preview” video of the ReVolt EV motorcycle was published. The actual release could make that percentage change seem insignificant in comparison.
The better news is that ALYI’s planned partnerships, strategic acquisitions, and value-generating IP ownership could add to those potential gains, making the next few weeks an opportune time to consider investing.
The bottom line is this – with a strengthened balance sheet, several active and potentially lucrative partnerships, and the imminent release of the ReVolt EV motorcycle, ALYI is better positioned than ever to maximize its opportunities. Moreover, the current valuation of the stock appears to be neglecting the near-term sale of 2000 EV motorcycles and its deals with RevoltTOKEN and IQST. But, the great news for investors is that valuation disconnects can be quickly cured. And with ALYI historically showing its ability to respond favorably to positive headlines, the timing may be ideal for positioning ahead of likely near term catalysts.
