Due to the Coronavirus, Enercom AG requested a longer offer period and sent the addendum request of the Enercom Token prospectus to the FMA, which has been approved today.
You can read the Addendum here
Read the interview which our CEO Kaspars had together with STOCHECK.com
What problem is Enercom AG addressing?
Enercom AG is active in two highly dynamic areas — telecommunications and renewable energy. Main problem we can put above all the others is striving towards carbon neutral energy production lessening the environmental impact of modern living and business making. Renewable energy projects we have under development is our attempt to improve renewable energy balance in Northern Europe and add long term value to the company besides our telecommunication business part to make sure our token holders have expected long term value delivered.
What is your solution to achieve a carbon neutral energy production?
Our solution is rather simple — we have running telecommunications business interconnecting hundreds of telco companies and transferring their voice call and sms traffic all across the globe, this is the part of the Enercom AG that delivers immediate value to our token holders since it allows us to drive revenue and pay dividends almost immediately. And adding to that we’re developing renewable energy projects, both solar and wind, we’re looking to execute and add long term value right next to the immediate results of telco operations. That is our promise to potential token holders — with telecommunications we’ll deliver on the promises today and tomorrow, but green energy is our diversification plan to make Enercom AG thriving for decades to come.
As Enercom operates within the telecommunication & renewable energy sector. Are there any synergies between both of them or do they work separately?
Telecommunications are in essence rather though scene where one can survive and succeed only if necessary level of analytics are present. Tons of data that may seem not that relevant and slip by on a daily basis actually holds many answers to questions that rather often remain unanswered or even not asked. That’s what we have mastered in Api Mobile — our telecommunications business that transits millions of SMS for our customers every single day. There might not be a direct link between energy and telco projects, but we strongly believe that our analytical skill set derived from telecommunications will play a major role in very close future in our energy projects as well especially considering operating in the open market conditions.
In which stage of development is your business?
Api Mobile is in active business since 2016 and reached 60M+ revenue mark in 2018. And that forms our key manifest to the community — there’s a track record proving our ability to reach business goals as a team, there’s no need to gamble if Enercom AG has a team fit enough to reach goals we state. We are tokenizing a running business with a development part in renewable energy next to it. Accordingly to the outcome of our token sale we’ll create the best fitting strategy that would support our existing business and bring energy projects from paper to life.
How much money do you need to realize your project? How are you planning to invest the raised funds?
We’re looking to raise 20 million EUR which is the valuation of our telecommunications part alone (please see prospectus for details). Yet with that amount we are able to continue to not only develop our telecommunication endeavours, but also invest in renewable energy projects among whom there are wind and solar parks that are ready-to-build as of today, as well as ones in earlier development phases.
What is your business model, how do you make money?
As per today we make money providing telecommunication services — transfer and termination of international voice calls and sms. In current shape and form we are in the business since 2016 and our revenue hit 60M+ in 2018. We decided to deliver immediate value to our token holders and this is the best way to do it. Since telecommunications are prone to technology change and is tech sensitive area we are adding an energy sector next to it in order to reach necessary diversification level to the business to ensure Enercom AG remains profitable in the long term. Once both revenue streams will be implemented our money making will consist of both — telco revenue and energy sales to the open market or directly or resellers.
Who are your main competitors and what makes you better?
There are countless energy and telecom companies across the globe, we believe our experience, track record and combination of both businesses is a solid base for Enercom AG becoming a long-lasting market player.
Why did you choose a STO as a means to raise funds?
It seemed and still seems to be most creative and contemporary way to talk to the audience that could get our message right. We truly believe that the global community is ready for new tools and innovations when it comes to investing and management of their assets. Telecommunications have taught us to keep looking for solutions among the latest technologies and inventions since that is the only way to keep up with the dynamics of the business scene. Therefore, there were no doubts that STO is the right way to put our project out to the community since our goal is to establish long term presence in the market and gain the necessary trust to be able to present our upcoming projects that are still in the pipeline.
What’s the best advice you’ve recently received?
It was about a year ago when someone I truly trust said we should conduct STO to boost our business development attempts and here we are.
What are the biggest challenges for Enercom to overcome in order to be a successful business?
Without bragging or being ignorant, I’d say Enercom AG is rather successful as per today already. We have all the components to become a stable long-term value we are trying to stick together with our STO attempt. Among challenges we could name necessity to bring our story out to the world and execute our post STO plan joining all the businesses below the Enercom AG roof, but that’s something that can surely be done with consistent work and right amount of commitment.
Where do you see your company in 5 years?
In 5 years we would like to look at the Enercom AG as a telecommunications company that maintains it’s Tier1 interconnections we have already and have added a few more to gain strategic advantages in ability to provide certain services to our customers. We would envision our sms transfer service being developed accordingly to the current omnichannel messaging requirements and maintaining flexibility to adapt market situation fast enough to keep our customer base satisfied. About that time we’d like to see our first wind park and at least a couple of solar energy projects commissioned into production and driving a revenue towards Enercom AG providing expected dividends to our token holders.
Key parameter of the Enercom Token and its offering.
The legal opinion was required by the FMA and therefor we will also publish it to selected investors. Reach out to us and you can see it.

From great economic progress to building a better quality of life, energy is the driving force behind everything. While living in the 21st century, individuals and societies have become significantly dependent on its potential, abundance, and convenience. It’s an undeniable fact that energy is propelling industries, sustaining societies, and boosting economies. Consider a power outage just for a few minutes, living without energy; it demonstrates how ineradicable its imprint is on your life, particularly on your daily activities. While it is making individuals’ lives easier and business goals achievable, on the other hand, it’s becoming more difficult for energy industries to keep up with the rising demand. That being said, the global economy is highly likely to consume even more energy in the future. In other words, higher global energy demand, dependence on fossil-based fuels for energy production and increasing population have lead to an inevitable energy crisis.
Europe on the Edge of Energy Crisis Believe it or not, the energy generated from fossils-fuels fulfills 80% of your current energy needs, which includes sources like coal, oil, and gas. However, the stated stats are anticipated to increase by half over the next couple of decades. This situation has been causing fear among many that we will run out of energy and it can lead to devastating consequences for the global economy. Speaking of the past two decades, oil reserves have increased by 40% and gas reserves by 70%; however, the expected rising demand indicates that the world will run out of renewable energy resources after 30 years.
Fossil-Fuels; the Devastating Energy Production Process for Earth However, the process for generating energy from fossil-fuels takes a huge toll on our ecosystems and landscapes. The unearthing and mining of huge areas to explore coal or oil deposits have drastically been destroying and leaching nutrients from lands, making them unfit for agriculture. This devastating process fragments and destroys the critical wildlife habitat. Furthermore, fossil fuels are non-renewable energy resources that release harmful air pollutants before burning. According to a report, around 12.6 million people in the US are exposed to toxic air pollution daily from oil and gas wells. These air pollutants include benzene and formaldehyde, which can cause leukemia and other dreadful diseases, including cancer. Besides, CO2 emissions in the atmosphere and burning of fossil fuels for energy are two of the major causes of rising temperatures. With the advancement in various economies, scientists have realized the disastrous consequences of burning fossil fuels for energy and come up with a new approach to keep up with the energy demand; they have developed technology that could derive energy from renewable sources. A product of natural resources like solar, wind, tidal, geothermal, biomass, and hydro, green energy has proven to cause no harm to our ecosystems. In addition, the renewable energy industry in Europe is also fostering technological innovations and development across the continent.
Green Energy While considering the aforementioned facts, many European countries have been encouraging and switching to the idea of utilizing ‘green energy’. That being said, the renewable energy revolution has taken off around Europe steadily. According to a report, Europe obtains more than 30% of its energy from renewable resources. While considering the escalation in energy demand, it’s expected that the proportion of renewable energy will increase by up to 50% by 2030. Considering the bright future of renewable energy, let’s take look at what it holds for investors in the long run.
Investing in the Green Energy Industry The global green energy industry amassed a total of $476.3 billion in 2014 and future projections by a BBC report indicate that the industry will grow at a 10.3% annual rate by 2019. Now, renewable energy is becoming more economically viable, luring consumers to shift to these technologies along with growing concerns over fossil-fuel energy production. Speaking of investors, they are reconsidering the market for making investments. If you talk about the future of the renewable energy industry, the future seems ‘green’; a report reveals that this particular sector will receive around $5.1 trillion in investment by 2030. Moreover, investing in the renewable energy industry, particularly in wind parks, is certainly a profitable idea for investors.
The Bottom Line Today, Europe is the center of the renewable energy revolution, and has made a great impact on the fossil-fuel energy production industry. For safer, cleaner, and more secure supply of energy needs, European citizens and businesses are shifting their focus toward green energy. Keeping the aforementioned details in view, the future of green energy seems economically viable.
We believe in transparency, this is how we are successfully throughout the business relationships we have had in the past and new relationships we will build for the future of Enercom AG.
The workflow for distribution of dividends will look similar to the graphic which we already added to the prospectus.
With this setup, we are very confident that we have all professional stakeholders onboarded until end of April so that the distribution of first dividends can happen in May. This is also aligned with our timeline which we have in our prospectus.
The current dividends are accumulated within the business account of API Mobile SIA you can always find out more about API Mobile here. Those dividends will then be distributed towards the holding Enercom AG (once the sale of API Mobile to Enercom AG is successfully done) with the successfully raise of the Enercom Token we will also use part of the use of proceeds to purchase Rapsoil SIA to make sure that further dividends for our token holders will be sustainable beside the API Mobile SIA dividends which have a great potential to increase due to highly experienced management and team players within the new potential subsidiary API Mobile SIA. We will be able to further work on the project of Rapsoil SIA to make sure all the groundwork will be finalised to achieve a way for future partners to easily access the project and start creating value to buy and build the wind turbines so that revenue is generated with producing energy and sell them to the grid with a potential power purchase agreement with Nordpool Group or any other potential buyer. If you have any questions about our business model, or how we plan certain things beside some details of the prospectus feel free to reach out to us so we can make sure you fully understand what we want to achieve in the future and do our piece for a better tomorrow for our children and grandchildren.

Today, after a very intensive months of research, structuring of the business we finally submitted the prospectus for Enercom AG through Florian Scheiber our Legal advisor to the FMA Liechtenstein. Many of you did not probably know but the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) recently published new guidelines on how a prospectus needs to be structured – as we thought we would be able to submit prior to that deadline we completely structured the prospectus based on the old template as FMA was also not sure whether they can provide the first set of feedback within this timeframe. So we had to decide to adopt the prospectus to the new guideline in order to submit it to the FMA in Liechtenstein. A big thank you to the team and also Florian Scheiber for helping us navigate through this big task for Enercom AG. So we could say we were the first prospectus submitted towards FMA Liechtenstein with the new prospectus regulation in the area of telecommunication and renewable energy as tokenised equity of an Aktiengesellschaft which was incorporated in February 2019 in Liechtenstein.
