Blink Charging Announces the Transformative Acquisition of EV Charging Leader SemaConnect, Further Expanding Its Network and Capabilities

June 15, 2022

Blink Charging Announces the Transformative Acquisition of EV Charging Leader SemaConnect, Further Expanding Its Network and Capabilities

 

 

 

 

  • Acquisition further solidifies Blink’s leadership position through complete vertical integration of supply-chain, engineering, and in-house manufacturing capabilities of more than 10,000 EV chargers today and scaling to 50,000 per year
  • In-house manufacturing and US-based assembly brings Blink in compliance with the Biden Administration Buy American initiatives

 

Miami Beach, FL  Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire SemaConnect, Inc., a leading provider of EV charging infrastructure solutions in North America, for $200 million subject to certain customary adjustments for working capital. The cash and common stock transaction will add nearly 13,000 EV chargers to Blink’s existing footprint, an additional 3,800 site host locations, and more than 150,000 registered EV driver members.

With this acquisition, Blink Charging will be the only EV charging company to offer complete vertical integration from research & development and manufacturing to EV charger ownership and operations. This vertical integration creates unparalleled opportunities for Blink to control its supply chain and accelerate its go-to-market speed while reducing operating costs.

Blink will benefit from SemaConnect’s in-house research & development, hardware design, and manufacturing capabilities. SemaConnect’s manufacturing facility in Maryland will allow Blink to comply with the Buy American mandates and to position itself to significantly capitalize on the $7.5 billion Biden Administration EV infrastructure bill and assist with the Administration’s goal to build out the first-ever national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers along America’s highways and in communities. The acquisition will also position Blink to assist the administration’s development of a national EV charging network that provides interoperability among different charging companies, and is user-friendly, reliable, and accessible to all Americans.

“This is a transformative acquisition for the EV charging industry and for Blink. SemaConnect is an established and well-known EV charging company with a proven track record of success, strong relationships with its site host partners in both the public and private sectors, and best-in-class technical capabilities,” said Michael D. Farkas, Founder and CEO of Blink Charging.

 

“SemaConnect has a robust hardware product line-up which complements Blink’s extensive software product offerings. This includes our multi-language and multi-currency network, allowing Blink to have an EV charging station for any location across more than 20 countries and expanding,” said Farkas. “In addition, we are particularly excited about the DCFC charger being developed by SemaConnect. These efforts allow Blink to significantly accelerate our DCFC speed to market while drastically reducing our R&D costs,” said Mr. Farkas.

Blink intends to transition SemaConnect’s chargers to a single state-of-the-art network developed by a joint engineering team, which nearly doubles with this acquisition. The addition of the SemaConnect hardware will accelerate Blink’s expansion across multiple municipalities and geographies, including California where SemaConnect chargers already comply with local requirements for swipe credit card functionality.

Founded in 2008, SemaConnect is a market leader with a diverse suite of products, including Level 2 and DC Fast chargers, and charging-as-a-service program which provides a full package of EV charging solutions. SemaConnect’s hardware and software solutions reach a wide range of critical EV charging customers across municipal, parking, multifamily, hotel, office, retail and commercial in the U.S. and Canada. Major customers include CBRE, JLL, Hines, Greystar, AvalonBay Communities, Cisco Systems, General Electric, among others.

Mahi Reddy, Founder and CEO of SemaConnect, said:  “Like Blink, SemaConnect has been a leader in the EV charging industry since its early days, and the combination of our expertise will enable us to scale the deployment of EV infrastructure even more quickly and efficiently. We are excited to join Blink as we charge ahead in transforming the EV charging industry with flexible, reliable, and innovative solutions for customers around the globe.”

“With complementary values, business models, and equipment, SemaConnect was an ideal acquisition target for Blink. This acquisition brings to Blink top talent from the industry. By adding the SemaConnect team to its ranks, Blink is building an industry leading EV charging company. We welcome the SemaConnect team to the Blink family,” said Mr. Farkas.

“With this acquisition and Blink’s recent past acquisitions, including EB Charging and Blue Corner in Europe, we have significantly expanded and strengthened our position as a global leader in the EV space,” said Mr. Farkas.

Mahi Reddy from SemaConnect is expected to join the Blink Board of Directors.

The SemaConnect acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions.

Blink’s newly launched products are included below.

 

 

MQ 200

Electrifying the full fleet ecosystem, such as those in trucking, delivery, taxi, rental, public utility, and commercial industries, is a key step in accelerating an electric vehicle future. Driving Blink further into fleet services, the Company is releasing the MQ 200, a 50-amp scalable charging station that meets the unique needs of fleets and locations requiring multiple fast chargers.

 

​​Designed especially for fleets, workplace, and multifamily locations, the MQ 200 makes deploying numerous chargers at a single location convenient, cost-effective, and scalable. It features an advanced, integrated Plug & Charge functionality which allows any electric vehicle or fleet EV with this capability to start a charge instantly after plugging in.

 

The MQ 200 communicates with the Blink Network and the Blink Fleet Portal, launched today, via LTE or Wi-Fi connections. The chargers can be deployed using local load management which allows for installation of 2 to 20 Blink chargers on a single circuit, perfect for reliable overnight charging of fleet vehicles in a queue, while the unit’s smart grid functionality allows communication directly with local utilities. The MQ 200 also comes with multiple cable management options which can be paired with all charger deployment methods, whether wall, pole, or pedestal.

 

HQ 200

With more than 80 percent of EV drivers expected to charge at home, Blink’s HQ 200 is bringing the next generation of home charging to the market. The product comes in two models: the HQ 200 Smart, which provides drivers remote control and intelligence via Wi-Fi, and the HQ 200 Basic, for those consumers looking for a more streamlined solution.

 

The HQ 200 features 50 amps of output and makes at-home charging easier, faster, and more seamless than ever before. The HQ 200 Smart is equipped with vehicle-to-grid and load-sharing technology, which allows multiple EVs to charge at home on a single, shared circuit – perfect for a household with multiple EVs.

Blink’s DC Fast Wall 50 kW is a compact, high-performance, and easy-to-install charger with up to 150 amps of output. Packing the power of DC fast charging into a smaller, sleeker wall-mounted charger, the DC Fast Wall 50 kW is the size of a flatscreen TV – a fraction of the size of typical DC fast chargers – and features a new vehicle-to-grid technology capable of dynamically balancing energy demand with supply. It comes as both a wall-mountable or pedestal solution and can charge two cars simultaneously making it ideal for fleet, retail, streetside charging, and all high-traffic locations.

 

One of the industry’s fastest and most convenient chargers, the DC Fast Wall 50 kW boasts 97% efficiency. It also features fast communications via integrated LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, a 10-inch touch screen display, and an RFID reader to easily start a charge with a Blink member card, credit card, and Blink Mobile app.

An integrated electric fleet management solution, the new Blink Fleet portal is designed to help fleet managers improve operational efficiencies at all levels. The Blink Fleet portal is a smart software platform that connects chargers, vehicles, fleet managers, and fleet drivers – all in one convenient solution –  to improve reliability, flexibility, and uptime. The product can also be integrated into existing platforms via API, enabling even more flexibility.

 

Blink Fleet software offers a comprehensive dashboard with real-time reporting and vehicle diagnostics for fleet managers to track a variety of operations including routing, charging depots and activity, vehicles and drivers, as well as mobile charging in case of rescue needs in emergency situations. It was designed upfront to enable 99% uptime. The software also features smart AI enabled charging to automatically set when, how much and how quickly to charge vehicles, as well as a Smart Grid functionality to communicate with local utilities and avoid off-peak hours.

 

For vehicle and driver management, the product integrates with vehicle telematics for real-time information for tracking and alerts, daily route management, charging status and history, vehicle diagnostics, and service schedules. The Blink Fleet solution also features a mobile app for drivers that includes charging status, routes, updates, automatic data sync, and communication.

 

Blink Mobile App

The new Blink Mobile App is designed to make the EV charging experience easier and more accessible for both public and home charging. It puts EV drivers in control with expanded keyword search allowing drivers to search for nearby activities, like a cafe or shopping center, that are in close proximity to a charging station, seamlessly integrating EV charging into everyday life. The Blink Mobile app also enables interoperability with other charging providers’ networks, allowing drivers to charge at a ChargePoint station, for example.

 

The new Blink Mobile App allows drivers to reserve charging sessions in advance, favorite frequent charging stations, and set charging reminders to take advantage of off-peak electricity rates. The app also provides account and charging history reporting and real-time charging information, which includes estimated time left to charge and estimated costs to help drivers plan their charging sessions.

 

Blink site hosts will have more flexibility and functionality surrounding pricing, allowing them to more closely mirror real electricity costs and adjust charging rates to EV drivers in response. It will also feature more robust reporting to allow hosts to better manage their costs and understand their location’s use.

Blink Charging Awarded Grant Funds for the Deployment of DC Fast Chargers at 25 Locations by the State of Florida

 

 

 

With a $12.5 million grant, Blink will create a robust network of 52 DC fast chargers along Florida’s major interstate highways and enhance resilience against natural disasters

 

 

Miami Beach, FL – Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced that it has been awarded Phase 2 grants from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to deploy DC fast charging stations. The 25 sites, featuring a total of 52 DC fast chargers, will be located in high-traffic areas along Florida’s major interstate highways, increasing access to EV charging for residents and travelers and strengthening the state’s resilience measures. This project is designed to provide fast charging opportunities across the state’s evacuation routes in the event of natural disasters.

As the country looks to address the consequences of climate change and extreme weather, such as from hurricanes, new infrastructure powered by renewable energy is critical. Blink’s charging sites are intended to enhance the state’s resilience measures by increasing the availability and accessibility of its electric charging infrastructure at strategic site placements along Florida’s four main interstates on Routes 95, 75, 10 and 4. In addition, 23 of the charging stations deployed will include modular battery storage and solar canopies to further support the strength of the energy grid.

The objective of Phase 2 of the Florida DEP grants is to develop a robust network of DC fast charging infrastructure across the state’s interstate highway system. With funds available from the Volkswagen Settlement, Florida made $16 million available for a total of 32 proposed sites, with a maximum grant award of $500,000 per site, all of which were individually awarded. With 25 sites, Blink was awarded nearly 80 percent of all available sites, bringing the company’s total grant award up to $12.5 million.

“We are honored to have been awarded the majority of the Florida sites for DC fast charger deployments and to help our home state further bolster its reputation as a leader in EV adoption,” commented Michael D. Farkas, Founder & CEO Blink. “Minimizing barriers to EV charging is critical to increasing consumer adoption of EVs, and with 25 new sites across the state, we are continuing our mission to provide EV charging where and when drivers need it. As the EV market rapidly accelerates,

infrastructure, we are delighted to have companies like Blink here in our backyard building towards a better tomorrow,” said Mayor Francis Suarez.

we are continuing to expand our DC fast charging footprint across the nation to provide the fast charging infrastructure required for the electric mobility transformation.”

The grant award locations include agreements between Blink and consumer brands that will serve as site host partners. Each location will deploy two 175kW DC fast chargers and deployment will begin this fall.
