Press Release

London, United Kingdom – 20th November 2023

LocoSoco Group PLC, a company at the forefront of sustainable and community-focused business practices, is excited to announce its intention to acquire Qintelligence, an AI-powered Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting platform. This move comes as part of LocoSoco’s strategic realignment following today’s last trading day on the Direct Market Segment of the Vienna Exchange, marking a significant step in strengthening our market position and enhancing shareholder value.

Strategic Realignment and Future Growth

Coming off the market provides LocoSoco with the flexibility to restructure, refine its strategic focus and integrate a revenue-generating asset like Qintelligence. This period off-market is an opportunity to align our operations, re-structure management, negotiate terms and prepare for a strong re-entry to public markets.

The acquisition of Qintelligence is a cornerstone of this strategy, representing a synergy of values, market position and growth potential.

About Qintelligence 

Qintelligence, a stealthy startup is revolutionising the ESG reporting landscape with its advanced AI-driven platform. Their approach to sustainable business practices through innovative technology aligns seamlessly with LocoSoco’s ethos and market strategy. 

With a valuation potential over 5 years estimated at between £75 million to £150 million, Qintelligence is poised for significant growth in the burgeoning ESG sector.

Jan-Carl Stjernsward  – Head of Legal at Qintelligence Commented “Joining LocoSoco marks a new era for Qintelligence. Our combined strengths will undoubtedly advance the cause of responsible and sustainable business practices”

Market Opportunity and Synergy

The ESG market is rapidly expanding, driven by evolving regulatory standards and shifting consumer preferences.

Focusing initially on the UAE market, Qintelligence’s financial model projects robust revenue growth across multiple streams, including SAAS subscriptions and ESG reports. This acquisition is a strategic move to roll in a revenue-generating asset into LocoSoco’s portfolio, enhancing the overall market offering and positioning LocoSoco for a strong future relisting and expanding Qintelligence’s reach.

We are not just potentially acquiring a company; we are embracing a future where our combined strengths will drive significant advancements in the ESG sector. Our time off-market is a strategic pause, allowing us to restructure, integrate Qintelligence’s groundbreaking technology and emerge stronger. We believe that this path can lead to enhanced value for our shareholders and a more sustainable future for the communities and businesses we serve.
