mPhase Announces Corporate Name Change and Delivery Schedule for EV Charging Equipment
Gaithersburg, MD, Dec. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTC Pink: XDSL) (“mPhase” or the “Company”), a technology company developing the mPower 5G-enhanced electric vehicle (EV) charging network and consumer engagement platform, is pleased to announce a company-rebranding effort to reflect the expected growth of its mPower EV/5G ecosystem. The Company will change its name from mPhase Technologies, Inc. to mPower Technologies, Inc. to reflect this transition. In conjunction with this new corporate name, the Company’s stock symbol will change from XDSL to POWR, pending FINRA approval.
“Our mPower business is the fastest growth engine within our company, so this name change is necessary to reflect what will be our primary strategy for years to come,” explained mPhase CEO Anshu Bhatnagar. “Our old stock symbol was a reference to research technology the company worked on decades ago, so these changes will be a welcome upgrade to reflect our new direction.”
The Company will begin taking delivery of its first mPower branded charging stations next week and expects to receive about 100 devices by early January. To avoid supply constraints, management is placing follow-on orders to ensure a flow of sufficient inventory to support the ambitious roll-out schedule planned for the first half of 2022. Initial installations will use Level 2 chargers sourced from an industry-leading OEM supplier that specializes in the type of chargers most suitable for a majority of the mPower locations. The schedule for Level 3 charging installations is dependent on partner engineering requirements and will be announced when timelines for those sites are finalized.
“The idea of an ecosystem rather than just a source of electricity takes the concept of EV beyond the tether and the dashboard,” explained CEO Bhatnagar. “The response we are getting to our strategy is very encouraging, so we look forward to the next stage of our growth curve as we begin our installation cycle and introduce some exciting new initiatives into the marketplace.”
