Constant Light Exposure

Regular sunglasses use fixed light absorption, while INOPTEC’s electronic eyewear is capable of adapting and changing light intensity in real-time, instantly going from transparent to extremely dark. This leads to a stable and constant brightness in the human eye, regardless of whether you are looking directly into the sun or in low light conditions.

The image below shows how regular sunglasses adapt to light (on the left) compared to INOPTEC smart glasses (on the right).

Market Entry Scenario

As a startup, we are focusing on one market to start with

– technology for light-triggered migraine sufferers –

with the objective to grow organically.

We are replacing the need to raise € 200 million to address all potential industries with the option of initially opening up only one market with raising just € 2 million. At the same time, the demand from the “migraine as a condition” market is so high that we can automatically grow into all other markets over time. Our plan for the future is to take the company public to meet the needs of existing and future shareholders.

Please take your time to consider our Market Entry Scenario for light-triggered Migraine Sufferers below.

Migraine Fact Sheet

Migraine as a condition affects every 10th person in the world, while migraine chronic forms affect every 20th person, resulting in

5% of worldwide population.

Migraine is NOT curable as it is a genetic, neurological disease.

Painfully disabling ‘migraine attacks’ triggered by light exposure, which affects about

65% of all migraine patients,

can be avoided!

If the attack is triggered by too much light, it automatically gets worse and it becomes a vicious cycle – Thus migraine patients try to protect themselves by using several different tinted sunglasses.

In total

5% x 65% = ca. 3%

of the world population are considered light-sensitive migraine patients!

Investment Advantages based on our Strategy

Product Investment Opportunity

Light-triggered Migraineurs

are in desperate need of automatic light dimming sunglasses and smart protection. The unbearable pain and severe side-effects of taking opioids for decades, such as liver damage, has led to a surge in demand!

INOPTEC’s Focus

as a company is only on urgently needed products, with no other competitors in the market.

INOPTEC’s Advantage

is to develop personal protection equipment (PPE) for which neither clinical studies nor FDA approval are required.

How INOPTEC’s Smart Glasses can suppress light-triggered Migraine Attacks

Migraine is NOT curable, but painful light-triggered attacks can be avoided!

The market size for light-sensitive migraineurs is about 3% of the world population.

Example: If a light-sensitive migraine patient knows their personal trigger level, say 5000 lux, they can set constant illumination at 2000 lux via the mobile app, which gives the user a 3000 lux margin of safety.

You can choose any intensity level, similar to auto cruise control in automatic cars, where you set a fixed speed and this is maintained regardless of the terrain.

All you need is just One Pair of smart electronic sunglasses!

Ditch the need of multiple eyewear options with INOPTEC

Photosensitive migraine sufferers may need up to 4 different tinted sunglasses, from light tinted to dark tinted, in order to adjust manually to the ambient light.

When changing sunglasses, these people have to close their eyes to protect themselves from exposure to light, which forces them to stop their current activity just to change glasses.

This inconvenient and unsafe daily action can be avoided by using INOPTEC’s Vision Enhancement System Technology.

Say Goodbye to these!

Migraineurs typically wear 4 categories of sunglasses, changed manually with closed eyes!

INOPTEC Technology - 4 Glasses

Say Hello to INOPTEC!

Migraineurs will wear only 1 pair of automatically tinted sunglasses permanently!

What Our Investors Say

“Outstanding!”

Devin-S-Standard
USA

Global Marketing and Innovation Executive is an American corporate brand builder, an optical engineered solutions driver, and an innovative multi-faceted entrepreneur.

“I tried INOPTEC’s AGS enhanced glasses outdoors. They actively controlled the glare while delivering outstanding contrast enhancement. These will make skiing and sailing more fun, and I am sure they will help my light-sensitive friends.”

“Unique”

Malte-Koellner

European Patent Attorney, awarded-winning lawyer and patent strategist.

“According to the EPO’s International Preliminary Report on Patentability, 8 patents have been filed worldwide in 10 countries!
I am impressed by the scope of the extensive patent portfolio, as it will monopolise INOPTEC’s business in the future.”

“Disruptive”

Pero-Micic

Renown futurist in Europe, Professor for Foresight.

“INOPTEC’s vision enhancement system will redefine the future of vision, when it comes to extreme light conditions.”

Other Industry Specific Applications

Outdoor Sports and Automotive

With its unique light capabilities, INOPTEC eyewear supports top performance by protecting you during fast movements, since the human iris reaction time, also called pupillary response, is very slow (up to 30 seconds) during dark adaptation (dilation time = iris opening time), for example when driving into a dark tunnel from bright sunlight by car or motorcycle (see the short film).

Currently, 10% of fatal road accidents are caused by visually impaired drivers. INOPTEC’s eyewear system can help prevent accidents and make driving significantly safer and was recently endorsed by the President of the AA in The Times.

In addition, cameras in self-driving cars could also be equipped with our anti-glare system (AGS®), which would be of great benefit, especially in low-lying sun or difficult night driving conditions.

AR Displays or Other Display

INOPTEC Epic Association AR

Check out some of the other leading AR brands we’re delighted to have met at EPIC!

It is important to note that the AGS® function mentioned above is the reason why our technology is referred to as a system and not just electronic eyewear, as INOPTEC can offer special LED lamps that run synchronously with the eyewear to avoid undesirable light (sun or glare from oncoming traffic at night, etc.) can be eliminated, while the desired light is always visible and thus a massive improvement in contrast is achieved.

The ratio between wanted and unwanted light is also known as the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR): the higher the SNR, the better the visibility / contrast.

However, all you need to remember is that any LED light source controlled by the wearer can provide essential light, such as a flashlight, a car headlight, an AR display, or any other display or instrument.

For this reason, AR companies such as Samsung, Facebook / Luxottica etc. are already interested in our US patent, which ensures the readability of AR displays in bright sunlight. This will be very important in the future for any AR display used outdoors (which is why most of the AR demo videos on YouTube were recorded indoors).

Investor FAQ

We strongly recommend reading our Investor FAQ to get a deeper understanding of why our shares are a low risk momentum stock with a high future potential.

You can also read about how we have attracted the top CEOs in the wearable tech industry with our gamechanging patented smart eyewear.

The return on investment is outlined in an IRR-Table which you can download here: IRR-Table
A robust financial estimation presents a conservative 10:1 ROI ratio in a time period of 7-10 years.
(IRR > 40%)

If you invest 20k EUR you will get back 200k EUR.
However, on top of this you will get an additional liquidation preference of 20% p.a. in rank 1 and more, depending on how and when the exit takes place.

As the owner of a preference share you have the legal right in rank 1 (before the main owner of the ordinary shares can access profits) to secure a return on your investment. The value of which will depend on how long you have been holding the shares, since 20% will automatically accumulate in the balance sheet, until profits are available for distribution.

Why is this important?

The liquidation preference provides a safety net for investors in the unlikely event of a company liquidation, so investors get their money back, before ordinary shareholders (e.g., after 5 years x 20% p.a. = 100% money-back guarantee, if profits are available).

Again, this is just a safety net. Normally the last (3rd) step in the waterfall model of the distribution of the profits in which all shareholders will participate, will be the most important and most lucrative step => see ROI-ratio of 10:1.

Yes. There are no lock-up periods. All preference shares are tradeable at arm’s length, but not publicly as we are not a PLC.
However, we do not recommend trading your shares, as the share price will be much lower than the share price at an exit point (see IRR table), and KCG cannot guarantee to buy back your shares, nor to find a new buyer for you. But you are always free to find a new buyer in your business angel network.

There are approved methods and standards (see IVS for example) for how an expert can evaluate the most likely return on a capital investment.

One method is called benchmarking where you look at similar exits in the past (e.g. VUZIX and RECON and others, sold shares well beyond 100 million. EUR/GBP/USD.)

If a start-up has a valuation of 6M – 10M, but gets sold for 60M – 100M you can clearly see the 10x return on investment.

Since most innovative high-tech startups of this calibre sell for well beyond 100M – and since we could have 3 exit scenarios under the holding company (see next question) we are confident that a higher ROI is possible, but we prefer to be more prudent in our estimation.

We have found out, that most investors tend to invest in the industries which they know best, and in which they are allowed to invest (e.g. health tech funds will only invest into health tech, etc.).

Therefore we have been asked by some investors, if they are allowed to invest in their own subsidiary, and our answer was yes – which has lead to the following company structure:

Download link

No. There is no need to sell shares, since the profit distribution rights are already linked to this preference share class (see publicly available corporate articles; see yellow download link above). In this way, this share class is similar to a bond.

You don’t have to sell your shares at an INOPTEC exit point. There are no drag or tag-along clauses forcing minority shareholders to participate in a subsidiary sale.

Yes, and this is an advantage of investing in a holding company structure. And the upside is 3 potential exits with an average low relative risk and positive cashflow generation.

Under one potential scenerio, an ROI of > 30 is possible, however, we have choosen a more conservative estimate for the sake of prudence.

Yes, the INOPTEC Group Ireland Ltd., must pay only 12.5 % corporate tax, one of the lowest corporate tax percentages in the world (even after the recent CT harmonisation towards 15%, which is not applicable in our case).

Furthermore, the taxable profit in Ireland will be deduced by patent licences fees, within an intra-group compensation toward an R&D daughter in Germany, so that the liquidity/profits can accumulate under the KCG holding, from which you will get your return on investment.

As you can see, we have done a lot to increase the shareholder value – but everything in a legal, ethical and sustainable manner to protect our environment and to help those in urgent need.

Still Have Questions?

If you still have any unanswered questions, please send us an email or give us a call. In addition, all of the above information is publicly available under our issued company articles, which is the legally binding document for preference shares.

Existing Shareholders

Furthermore, our existing shareholders act as brand ambassadors, as most are renowned CEOs from the industry! In other words, our existing shareholder list reads largely like the who’s who of the industry. We have CEO/CTOs and partners (as business angels), from or are associated with the following companies:

  • ITERATEC (DE)
  • LIGHT-TECH (FR),
  • ESCHENBACH-INSPECS (DE/UK)
  • CLUB OPTIC LIBRE (FR)
  • EUROPEAN PHOTONIC INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION (EU)
  • BRILLENPROFI (DE)
  • OPTISWISS (CH)
  • Fleming Family & Partners Capital Management (UK)
  • EARNST & YOUNG (DE)
  • SINGULARITY UNIVERSITY – FACULTY OF BIOACKING
  • U2T-Photonics-FINISAR (DE/USA)
  • P3 GROUP (DE)
  • VODAFONE EUROPE
  • Etc.

Finally, a personal note from the founder & CEO

Ralf-G.J.-Knoll-CEO-Knoll-Capital-Group

As a personal note, I would like to add that openness, fairness, modern thinking and transparency are our company philosophy, namely that we do NOT operate with hidden shareholder pages or preferential treatment. Everything we do is transparent, with the aim of ensuring fair and equal rights for every shareholder.

This is also the reason why I am inclined to go public as soon as possible (e.g. AIM Ldn., EURONEXT, NASDAQ, etc.), which is also a realistic alternative to selling 3 subsidiary companies (trade sales) but we will leave all options open for now. Rest assured, I will take care of you as a shareholder in the same way as we look after the quality of life of light-triggered migraine patients and the many other potential beneficiaries of our smart eyewear for perfect vision, day and night.

We are a company that cares deeply about our product, our customers, and our investors.
We will never give up pushing this business forward, no matter what challenges we face.

Yours sincerely,

Ralf G.J. Knoll
