SCAP becomes a distributor for Zwipe and creates the first starter pack in French for Zwipe Access, the biometric Access control card.

OSLO, NORWAY and VAULX EN VELIN, March 27, 2024 – Zwipe A.S., a company listed on the stock exchanges of Oslo and Stockholm, a pioneer and world leader in the development of biometric technology on cards for identification, access control and payment, has teamed up with SCAP, the leading distributor of access control cards and readers in France, focusing on providing advanced security RFID solutions, to introduce the innovative "biometric system-on-card" to SCAP's customers in France.

SCAP's customer base spans across the entire security industry in France, including physical and logical access system manufacturers, installers, integrators as well as corporations in various industries, including airports, transportation, healthcare, data centers, critical infrastructure, manufacturing, government, and education.

As a testimony of SCAP commitment and to fulfil immediate demand from early adopters, SCAP has placed its first purchase order to Zwipe already and launched the first Zwipe Access starter pack in French language.


Zwipe Access utilizes state-of-the-art biometric capture and matching technology to securely store the cardholder’s encrypted fingerprint template directly within the card’s smart chip during issuance. This integration seamlessly aligns with the requirements of SCAP’s customers, allowing them to integrate biometric verification swiftly, securely, and cost-effectively into their existing security infrastructure.

According to Pierre Yves Dudal, president of SCAP, “In today’s highly secure EU requirements for working environment, having easy access to the latest access technologies is critical for all strategic or sensitive sites. The biometric card provided by Zwipe brings breakthrough ID card technologies to existing identification systems for the next generation of physical and logical access.”

“We are happy to partner with SCAP, a leading advanced security solution distributor. We look forward to developing and strengthening the relationship with the French security market thanks to our local expertise and support, as well as supporting SCAP to deliver best- in-class customization and logistic for access control solutions integration partners globally,”, says Robert Puskaric, President and CEO of Zwipe.

OSLO, NORWAY – 26 March 2024 – Zwipe AS ("Zwipe" or "the company") has today released its Annual Report 2023, including the Board of Directors report and financial statements. The report and annual accounts were approved by the Board of Directors after the close of business on 25th of March 2024. The 2023 Annual Report is attached to this release and available at https://www.zwipe.com/investors/reports.

 

 

OSLO, NORWAY – 22 February 2024 – Zwipe AS ("Zwipe" or "the company") today announces its results for the first half of 2023.

Highlights H2 2023

























Significant events after the period









H2 2023 operational review

Commenting on the second half of 2023, Zwipe CEO Robert Puskaric says, “Despite our many go-to-market partnerships around the globe and 50+ dialogues with issuers, market adoption of biometric payment cards in 2023 simply did not happen as Zwipe or anyone else in the industry expected. Issuers continue to be slow-moving meaning that commercial orders from our SCM customers and revenues for Zwipe Pay were far lower than anticipated at the start of the year.”

Progress in Zwipe Access has been much more positive, with Puskaric continuing, “Much more optimistically, we have seen considerable interest in biometric access control technology throughout 2023. Across the USA and Europe, we have more than 35 Zwipe Access go-to-market partnerships, and these partners are currently carrying out more than 65 proofs of concept.” These proofs of concept (“PoCs”) of Zwipe Access technology include end-user enterprises including Fortune 100 companies, Top 3 cloud service providers, healthcare facilities, airports, data centers, government agencies, and critical infrastructure operators. These PoCs are expected to translate into commercial orders and meaningful revenue in the short term, with an additional, powerful growth catalyst deriving from the EU NIS2 Directive on cybersecurity requirements in critical infrastructure sectors.

In the USA, Zwipe Access completed a critical operational test and evaluation by National Safe Skies Alliance, Inc. (Safe Skies) at Richmond International Airport (RIC) early in 2024. The Safe Skies team’s report offers a positive assessment of Zwipe Access technology in airports and is expected to motivate airports across the Americas to evaluate Zwipe Access technology. Zwipe continues to make positive progress with our key GTM partners including Schneider Electric, MC Dean, Matrix Systems and NCS in the Americas and in AWT, Assa Abloy, Certego and others in Europe.

Fundraising and new strategic direction

The negative developments in Zwipe Pay and positive developments in Zwipe Access during the second half led to our January 2024 announcement of a new strategic direction for Zwipe, which will see the company focus our resources almost exclusively on commercialization of Zwipe Access where the near-term commercial opportunity is clear.

Just before the January 2024 announcement, Zwipe completed a rights issue in December 2023 raising NOK 35 million in gross capital, with additional capital possible from an exercise of warrants in December 2024. Funds raised in addition to cash on hand will now be directed primarily to accelerating Zwipe Access commercialization, with substantially less required to support additional technology development or supply chain purchases associated with Zwipe Pay. When combined with the June 2023 restructuring, Zwipe expects operational costs to be more than NOK 40 million lower than in 2023. Total cash flow over the coming two years is also expected to be more than NOK 40 million better than if Zwipe had continued to focus on both business lines, giving Zwipe longer runway and greater financial flexibility.  These decisive actions alongside funds raised from the rights issue should put Zwipe on a path towards cashflow breakeven, which we hope to reach in 2025.

H2 2023 financial review

Zwipe reported total revenues of NOK 1.2 million during H2 2023, lower than the NOK 3.1 million reported in H2 2022 and the NOK 1.7 million reported in H1 2023.  Total operating expenses totalled NOK 44.6 million in H2 2023, down NOK 15.1 million compared to H2 2022, and down NOK 12.9 million compared to the first half of 2023. The above resulted in net income for H2 2023 of NOK -43.9 million, substantially better than NOK -57.1 million reported in H2 2022 and NOK -56.1 million in H1 2023.

Total net cash flow for H2 2023, including cash flow from financing and investing activities, was NOK -33.7 million compared to NOK -59.3 million in H2 2022.

On 31 December 2023, cash and cash equivalents were NOK 42.2 million, compared to NOK 50.5 million on 31 December 2022 and NOK 76.0 million on 30 June 2023. With the remaining outstanding funds from the rights issue of NOK 24.4 million received in early January 2024, the effective “turn of year” cash position was NOK 66.6 million.

Going forward

Zwipe’s priorities for 2024 all involve accelerating Zwipe Access commercialization and maximizing Zwipe’s financial flexibility:

OSLO, NORWAY – 16 January 2024 – Zwipe AS today announces a company restructuring and new strategic direction, increasing its focus on Zwipe Access and accelerating the commercialization of its biometric authentication technology in the access control market. As a result of the change in strategic focus, the company has initiated a restructuring process that is expected to reduce operational costs, particularly related to Zwipe Pay.  On a directly comparable basis excluding one-off costs, the Group expects to reduce operating costs in 2024 by approximately NOK 40 million compared to 2023, combining the effects of Zwipe’s new strategy and the streamlining plan previously announced on 21 June 2023. 

“Zwipe has seen considerable traction and progress in the access control market in 2023, with more than 30 partnerships signed or in progress in the USA and Europe. The market is in its early stages but we believe biometric cards can represent a substantial share of the nearly 500 million smart access cards expected to be shipped annually in coming years. Our value proposition is clear, with partners and end-users alike recognizing the substantial benefits of biometric access control technology in terms of security, convenience, and GDPR compliance,” says Zwipe CEO Robert Puskaric.

In addition, in recent months compliance with the EU NIS2 Directive on cybersecurity requirements in critical infrastructure sectors – required by October 2024 and which Zwipe Access provides – has emerged as a critical catalyst for end customers, encouraging them to consider the adoption of biometric access control solutions.

Zwipe has more than 60 proofs of concept in progress with end users, including a Top 3 global cloud service provider, a well-known Swedish consumer technology company, Berkshire Hathaway Energy Group, Fortune 100 companies, and entities including government agencies, airports, critical infrastructure operators, data centers, and healthcare facilities.

“Our new strategic direction will mean laser focus on the singular objective to rapidly achieve commercial success with Zwipe Access, while operating in as lean a manner as possible to maximize our financial flexibility,” says Puskaric.

Zwipe has historically focused primarily on the development and application of its biometric authentication technology in the payments market. Over the last two years, Zwipe completed the development of Zwipe Pay including mobile enrollment solutions, achieved full certification of the technology by both Visa and Mastercard, and spent significant time lining up the biometric payment card (“BPC”) value chain players to launch quickly once banks decided to move forward with biometric payment cards. However, neither market adoption nor the pace of commercial launches has materialized in the manner Zwipe or other players had expected, particularly towards the end of 2023.

“The decision to focus on Zwipe Access is a natural outcome of the traction seen in 2023. However, all the effort that went into developing and certifying Zwipe Pay is what laid the foundation for success with Zwipe Access.  Our Access partners and end customers tell us they gain confidence using technology subjected to the rigorous testing required for certification in the payments market,” states Puskaric. Zwipe will continue to serve and fulfill purchase orders from Zwipe Pay customers that have already been certified.

Cost reduction initiatives will begin immediately, with full impact from the middle of the second quarter of 2024. On a net basis, five employees will leave Zwipe, with departures linked to Zwipe Pay, while the Zwipe Access sales team will increase slightly as the company ramps up commercialization efforts here.

Total cash flow over the coming two years is anticipated to be more than NOK 40 million better than if Zwipe had continued to focus on both payments and access control, giving Zwipe significantly longer runway and greater financial flexibility.

“While it is heartbreaking to let highly valued employees go and transition away from Zwipe Pay, we fully believe this is the right course of action for our shareholders. Zwipe Access is a higher margin business with visible commercial inroads, and our objective is for Zwipe to approach breakeven in H2 2025 as a result of higher margins, lower operational costs, and lower supply chain costs,” says CEO Robert Puskaric.

The recently completed rights issue, which includes a possible exercise of warrants in December 2024, should enable this path to profitability.

The Company will host a webcast today, 16 January at 15:00 CET, about our new strategic focus. After the presentation, the webcast will be opened up for questions from the audience.

THIS PRESS RELEASE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER TO BUY SECURITIES IN ZWIPE AS. SEE ALSO THE SECTION "IMPORTANT INFORMATION" BELOW IN THIS DOCUMENT.

OSLO, NORWAY – 3 January 2024 – Reference is made to the stock exchange announcement published by Zwipe AS (the "Company") on 14 December 2023 regarding the final allocation of a rights issue of units, each consisting of one new share in the Company, each with a nominal value of NOK 0.10 and one warrant of series T01 (the "Warrants"), with preferential rights for existing shareholders raising gross proceeds of approximately NOK 35 million (the "Rights Issue").  

The Rights Issue resulted in the issuance of 64,823,988 Warrants, of which 40,889,612 Warrants were allocated to subscribers in the Rights Issue and 13,480,092 Warrants were allocated to the top guarantor in connection with the Convertible Loan (as defined below). All 64,823,988 Warrants will be listed and tradable on Euronext Growth Oslo for a period commencing today, 3 January 2024 and ending at 16:30 (CET) on 9 December 2024. In addition, the Warrants will be listed on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Sweden for a period commencing today, 3 January 2024 and ending at 16:30 (CET) on or about 10 December 2024. The 10,454,284 Warrants not allocated to subscribers in the Rights Issue or in connection with the Convertible Loan (as defined below) will not be used and will be returned to the Company.

Two (2) Warrants entitle to the subscription of one (1) new share in the Company. The subscription price upon exercise of the Warrants shall for subscription of one share in the Company be 70% of the ten-day VWAP (Volume Weighted Average Price) of the Company's shares on Euronext Growth Oslo the last ten (10) trading days prior to commencement of the Exercise Period, but never lower than NOK 0.10 per share and never higher than 1.20 per share. Consequently, if all Warrants are exercised, the Company expects to raise an additional amount of minimum NOK 3,241,199.40 and maximum NOK 38,894,392.80.

Holders of Warrants may either sell their Warrants or use them to subscribe for shares in the Company, in both cases within the deadlines stated above. As such, the Warrants may have a financial value for the holders, depending on the prevailing market price for the shares in the Company. If the Warrants are not sold or exercised within the respective deadlines, the Warrants will lapse with no compensation to the holders.

For more information pertaining to the Warrants, please see the prospectus prepared in connection with the Rights Issue (the "Prospectus"), which is available on the Company's website www.zwipe.com and on the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority's website, www.fi.se.

Pre-commitment and bottom guarantee commitments:

In connection with the Rights Issue, the Company received subscription commitments from a number of existing shareholders totaling approximately NOK 8.8 million, corresponding to approximately 25 percent of the Rights Issue. No compensation is paid for these subscription commitments.

In addition, Zwipe received so-called bottom guarantee commitments of approximately NOK 15.8 million. Through the bottom guarantees together with the subscription commitments, approximately 70 percent of the issue proceeds in the Rights issue was secured. For the so-called bottom guarantees, a compensation of thirteen (13) percent of the guaranteed amount is paid. The subscription commitments and bottom guarantee commitments were not secured by bank guarantee, escrow funds, pledging or similar arrangements. Detailed information regarding the parties that have entered into subscription commitments and guarantee undertakings can be found in the Prospectus.

Top guarantee commitment and new issue of the Convertible Loan and Warrants pursuant to the top guarantee commitment:

Zwipe received a so-called top guarantee of approximately NOK 10.5 million. The top guarantee was fulfilled by the top guarantor subscribing for a convertible loan in the Company of NOK 10,514,472 (the "Convertible Loan"). Through the top guarantee, together with the subscription commitments and the bottom guarantee commitments, 100 percent of the issue proceeds in the Rights Issue was secured. For the so-called top guarantee, a compensation of fifteen (15) percent of the guaranteed amount is paid. The top guarantee commitment was not secured by bank guarantee, escrow funds, pledging or similar arrangements. The subscription amount has been paid to the Company.

The top guarantor also had the right and obligation to subscribe for Warrants free of charge in relation to the subscription price for the Convertible Loan. The number of Warrants the top guarantor was entitled to subscribe for amounted to the maximum number of Units in the Rights Issue less the aggregate number of Units subscribed for by existing shareholders in the Company and Units subscribed for under the bottom guarantee commitments, multiplied by 0.78. Based on these principles, the top guarantor was allocated 13,480,092 Warrants.

In said announcement, it was stated that the Company received subscriptions for a total of 24,194,533 Units, corresponding to approx. 41.4% of the Units offered, during the subscription period for the Rights Issue.

Approximately NOK 24.5 million of the Rights Issue was guaranteed through subscription commitments and so-called bottom guarantee commitments. Furthermore, the Company had received a so-called top guarantee commitment of an amount corresponding to approximately NOK 10.5 million. In the event that the top guarantor had to fulfill its top guarantee commitment, the subscription amount was be paid to the Company by the top guarantor subscribing for a convertible loan in the Company (the "Convertible Loan"). The total subscription price for the Convertible Loan would be equivalent to the total subscription price of the Rights Issue, minus the subscription price of the Units subscribed by the existing shareholders of the Company and the Units subscribed by the bottom guarantors. However, the subscription price would not be less than NOK 5.0 million.

Based on the subscription rate of the Rights Issue, the size of the Convertible Loan will be NOK 10,514,472. The Convertible Loan is due on 20 December 2024 (the "Maturity Date") and an interest of 10% p.a. + 3-month STIBOR. The Convertible Loan shall either be repaid or converted to shares by the top guarantor within the Maturity Date. The subscription price per share upon conversion of the Convertible Loan shall be 130% of the subscription price in the Rights Issue, i.e., NOK 0.78 per share.

For more information, please refer to the EGM minutes published by the Company on 22 November 2023.

AUSTIN, TEXAS and OSLO, NORWAY  12 December 2023 – Zwipe, the global leader in biometric payment and access cards, has partnered with HID, the worldwide leader in trusted identity solutions, to release a recycled PVC prelaminate for its biometric smart card Zwipe Pay.

Recycled card materials are vital for achieving sustainability goals. Every year, about 3 billion payment cards, predominantly made of PVC, are issued globally. Replacing new PVC with recycled ones reduces waste and limits the influx of new plastic. More than 500 million “eco-friendly” cards, from recycled materials, PLA or PET-G, will be distributed in 2023, and this number is set to exceed 1 billion cards by 2025.

HID offers a prelaminate exclusively made from 100% recycled PVC designed specifically for producing biometric smart cards. When paired with the Zwipe Pay IC Module and fingerprint sensor, smart card manufacturers have the essential components to produce eco-friendly biometric smart cards that meet Mastercard Card Quality Management (CQM) requirements, including the use of sustainable materials in any new card issued as of 2028.

The recycled PVC prelaminates for Zwipe Pay are globally available for order now.

“With a strong focus on sustainability, HID is driven by the belief that technology can be harnessed to not only enhance security and convenience, but also minimize our environmental footprint. Our partnership with Zwipe represents a bold step towards a future where secure, convenient, and eco-friendly solutions meet at the intersection of cutting-edge technology and environmental responsibility,” said Martin Brezina, Vice President of Lux-Ident Business Unit at HID.

Patrice Meilland, Chief Strategy and Product Officer at Zwipe, added, "We are delighted to be first to market a recycled PVC biometric smart card platform. We are very happy that HID was able to support our request for a recycled PVC option timely and with impressive quality."
