Chicago, IL, Feb. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FOMO CORP. (US OTC: ETFM) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Online Energy Manager, LLC (“OEM” - https://www.oem.us.com/ ), an international solutions provider of algorithmic software solutions for commercial building energy optimization. This LOI further establishes FOMO as a clean energy technology company within the growing “Clean-Tech” and smart building marketplace.
Established in 2008, OEM owns the patent Central Cooling and Circulation Energy Management Control System (Patent No. 8660702B2), granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in 2014. OEM’s trademarked Efficient Cooling and Refrigeration (ECORE-CI®) platform is based on this patented technology and serves as the foundation for OEM’s solutions that dynamically manage Heating, Ventilation, and Cooling (HVAC) systems, using non-disruptive and warranty-compliant implementation and connect to existing Building Management Systems to make facilities smarter and more energy efficient. Moreover, these solutions do not require replacing existing HVAC systems. A leading business consulting firm, that specializes in technology-based market research and analysis, assessed OEM’s patent and business model and estimated the risk-adjusted Net Present Value (rNPV) at between $17.2 and $62.4 million.
The ECORE Platform has been installed in nine Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum hotels of the Starwood Group, as well as many other commercial properties including hotels and office buildings, all of which have resulted in HVAC system energy and cost savings of 20 to 35% with less than a three-year payback. ECORE also optimized a massive District Cooling Plant in the Middle East, which has installed cooling capacity of 25,000 tons (10 large chillers, each with 2,500 tons). That project yielded annual energy savings of over 15 million kilowatt hours and cost savings of $600,000. OEM offers clients an option to pay for ECORE from a share of the achieved savings, thereby minimizing or eliminating up-front costs. The low up-front costs and payments from savings provide an attractive option for customers, given the current economic challenges of COVID-19. As the world faces the continuing challenges related to climate change, reducing energy consumption is also a powerful means to reduce CO2 for long-term sustainability.
With the recent FOMO/OEM LOI, signed February 15, 2021, FOMO now has the following competitive advantages in the Clean-Tech marketplace:
Use of the OEM case studies and marketing materials to attract and engage customers.License to use the OEM intellectual property to directly implement projects, where FOMO chooses to use engineers and programmers to directly service customers.15% profit sharing on OEM’s top line revenue for customer accounts where FOMO and its network of holdings may choose to direct projects to OEM for energy saving implementations.Two (2) year option to purchase 19.9% of OEM for $2 million.Three (3) year option to purchase OEM for $10 million.
For consideration of these advantages, FOMO has provided OEM with a five (5) year warrant to acquire 100 million common shares of FOMO CORP. at an exercise price of $0.01.
Dilip Limaye, OEM CEO, remarked: “We are pleased to engage with FOMO given its growing ‘eco-system’ of companies in the clean technology sector that offer complementary technologies, such as energy efficient lighting and clean indoor air that reduce HVAC maintenance costs and increase performance. Given that FOMO’s holdings have significant client lists, our OEM team looks forward to capitalizing on the synergies that will create next-generation smart and efficient buildings.”
Said Vik Grover, FOMO CORP. CEO: “Two of the key spokes in the wheel of sustainability are proven results and intellectual property. OEM brings both with a decade of results and a seminal patent. The IP is a springboard for machine leaning and artificial intelligence. HVAC systems are at the heart of building operations, and FOMO is now positioned to generate recurring revenue from building optimization.”
