Expion360 Signs Non-Binding LOI to Purchase Lithium Battery Manufacturing Equipment in Connection with its Plans to Build Large-Scale Lithium Cell Manufacturing Facility in Redmond, Oregon


REDMOND, OR / ACCESSWIRE / June 9, 2022 / Expion360, Inc.(NASDAQ:XPON), an industry leader for lithium batteries and accessories for recreational vehicles (RVs), outdoor, marine, residential and industrial applications, has signed a non-binding letter of intent (LOI) with an Asian producer (the Manufacturing Partner) of lithium battery manufacturing equipment for Expion360 to purchase lithium battery manufacturing equipment in connection with its plans to build a large-scale lithium cell manufacturing facility in Redmond, Oregon. The lithium battery manufacturing equipment is planned to produce up to 250,000 Type 26650 lithium battery cells per day.

Expion360 plans to utilize the Manufacturing Partner's IP, engineering capabilities and manufacturing equipment to construct and initially operate its planned manufacturing facilities. The Manufacturing Partner is also expected to supply the factory with all the components necessary to manufacture the lithium battery cells and to train Expion360's employees in the operation of the battery manufacturing equipment. The LOI is non-binding and the procurement of equipment and services thereunder, and the planned manufacturing facilities generally, remain subject to the negotiation of definitive agreements, the Company's financing of the project and performance of counterparties. Expion360 expects the engineering plans and site planning of the facility to begin before the end of the year.

Following the anticipated signing of a definitive agreement with the partner, Expion360 plans to begin the design of the facility and secure the funding necessary for the project. Expion360 estimates the cost associated with the construction of the plant to total approximately $450 million. Expion360 plans to utilize a combination of equity, debt and federal grants to pay for the construction project.

"The launch of this large-scale factory project is a major step both for Expion360 and other companies in the U.S. that would benefit from a domestic source of 26650 cylindrical lithium-ion batteries," stated company CEO, John Yozamp. "The biggest constraint for clean energy power and electric mobility manufacturers today is their supply chain and the sourcing of lithium-ion batteries. We intend to alleviate these constraints with our new mega battery factory."

China is currently the world leader in global lithium battery supply chain, with it controlling more than 70% of the total global lithium-ion battery manufacturing capacity. The new Expion360 large-scale factory is anticipated to meet the growing demand for lithium batteries and reduce reliance on foreign manufacturers as the U.S. continues its transition towards a clean energy economy.

For further details about the company's preliminary agreement see the Expion360 Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission at, and also available in the investor relations section at
