KWESST BIGGEST SECRET WEAPON? DAVID LUXTON

Small Cap investors understand more than anybody that all companies in their early stages are essentially just people playing out an idea.

It’s never the other way around – where an idea is so big that it doesn’t need people to make it succeed. Small cap investors know this, hence the saying “Bet on the jockey (founder), not the horse (idea).”

A Great Jockey Is A Great Leader - David Luxton Is A World-Class Jockey

David is a recognized entrepreneur in the defence and security industry. He was formerly an infantry officer and senior official with the Canadian and British governments before leading the global build-out of successive defence and security companies, including:

1.  Simunition - A world leader in simulated munitions for close quarters combat training.

2.  Allen-Vanguard - Became a world leader in Counter-IED solutions (Current Chairman)

3.  United Tactical Systems - A world leader in non-lethal munitions systems (Former Chairman)

All together, companies under the leadership of David Luxton have generated over $1,000,000,000 (Billion) in sales … and continue to do so.

Investors in KWESST can rest assured they have a great jockey.

KWESST Announces C$1.1 Million Follow-on Order For TASCS IFM From Key U.S. Military Customer

  • Announced a follow-on order for approximately C$ 1.1 million with a key U.S. military customer to expand use of the Company’s TASCS IFM system in military exercises, a key precursor to wider adoption

  • Work under the order is scheduled to commence immediately.
  • Founder, President and CEO Jeff MacLeod commented that, “This marks another key validating milestone in a market where TASCS IFM on the 81mm mortar alone could ultimately be worth up to C$120 million in the U.S. and another C$400 million worldwide, given the large installed base of 81mm mortars in service with so many NATO and allied military forces.”

KWESST Completes Second Phase of TASCS Contract for Key U.S. Military Customer

  • Announced the completion of the second phase of three deliverables under a contract to support a U.S. military customer, featuring the Company’s signature Tactical Awareness and Situational Control System (TASCS) and its Integrated Fires Module (IFM).
  • Results of phase one and two, now being summarized into a phase three report, confirm that the TASCS IFM achieves greater accuracy and faster response times on indirect fire systems like mortars, improving soldier survivability and operational effectiveness
  • “We’re encouraged that the results and user feedback from these live-fire exercises have further increased customer confidence in the TASCS system,” said Jeff MacLeod, KWESST Founder and CEO, who added, “We’re pleased at the rapid pace as well as the outcome of these exercises, especially with such a key U.S. military customer, who has now requested a proposal from the Company for a next phase of expanded exercises to start in early 2021.”

$14 BILLION MARKET BY 2023 - $93 MILLION PIPELINE AS OF AUGUST 2020

The global market for soldier systems is projected to surpass $14 BILLION by 2023.  KWESST believes it will obtain a meaningful share of this market as follows:

  1.  Focus on Special Forces units with urgent requirements, discretionary funds, short selling cycles and leading industry opinion makers.
  2. There are hundreds of such units worldwide, with more than 100 in the U.S. alone.
  3. The obtainable market in each niche is tens of millions of dollars.
  4. Global unrest creates cross-over applications into global Homeland Security markets.

Until recently, however, small-cap investors did not have a company that could provide them ground floor exposure to this massive market and its growth over the next 3 - 10 years.  The market for soldier systems has been dominated by either big traditional defence companies long past their growth stages, or smaller companies that have remained private. 

 

That all changes with KWESST, the small cap soldier systems company that is:

  • Commercializing its technologies with some of the biggest clients in defence.
  • Developing its technologies with some of the biggest manufacturers in defence.
  • Led by an executive team with a track record of over $900 Million in revenue.
  • Scalable and nimble thanks to outsourcing, licensing and in-house development requiring minimal CAPEX (capital expenditures)

As a result, KWESST has $93,000,000 (million) in pipeline opportunities at August 2020.
