Global Photonic Energy Corporation (GPEC) is a pre-eminent patent-holding company and technology licensing pure-play in the organic photovoltaic technology space.
GPEC's unique and proprietary technology in Small-Molecule Organic Photovoltaics (SM-OPV™) forms the basis for exciting new product applications and capabilities.
GPEC's founding team has twice before created significant shareholder value by forming successful patent-holding companies to advance transformational technologies from the basic science stage through to commercialization. These predecessor companies are pioneers in organic semiconductors and digital wireless communications technologies and have generated significant revenues and substantial shareholder value using a patent-holding company and technology licensing strategy.
Over a 16 year period, the Company has funded basic science research with world leading organic photovoltaic researchers at Princeton University, Stanford University, the University of Southern California and the University of Michigan, securing the exclusive world-wide commercial rights to a broad and foundational patent portfolio. In its intellectual property, GPEC has a created a valuable asset comprising over 425 patents issued/pending globally.
GPEC believes that a number of the Company's patents will be required by any company seeking to develop and commercialize an organic photovoltaic technology.
GPEC's licensing approach allows the Company to focus on basic science innovation and expanding and strengthening our intellectual property portfolio while allowing Partner companies to focus on the manufacture and distribution of products containing the Company's SM-OPV™ technologies. For access to the Company's technologies and know-how, Partner companies will pay GPEC up-front licensee fees and/or per-unit royalties.
As the Company grows, GPEC's licensing approach will allow investors to enjoy significant operational leverage with over 90% of revenue dropping to the bottom line once sustaining operational expenses are covered.
GPEC is pursuing huge and rapidly growing markets that are in search of a new solution – the energy, solar power and battery augmentation/mobile power markets.
GPEC's SM-OPV™ technology is a proprietary, disruptive and differentiated technology with exciting near-term revenue opportunities.
