    A New Capital Campaign to Launch Production of Wysips(R) Glass

    This round was marked by the entry of ACAPITAL, a renowned investment fund

specialized in helping European mid-size companies expand in Asia. With its

international network and its focus in China, A CAPITAL will support Sunpartner

Technologies' growth in Asia. Sunpartner Technologies has now raised a total of

EUR45M ($48.7 M) since its creation in 2008 - EUR 15M ($16M) in 2015 alone.

    Wysips(R) Glass: High-Tech Manufacturing of Smart Glazing in France

    This new capital will be used to set up high-tech production facilities in

France for transparent, solar Wysips(R) Glass for large surfaces, with a

capacity of 30,000m2 of smart glazing per year. The site will be operational by

2017 and will make next-generation PV modules, which will be integrated into

the glazing in partnership with leading manufacturers. This smart glazing is

destined for transportation, smart buildings, and net energy positive buildings.

    The PV component is integrated into the building's glazing and produces

electricity from light, helping reach net positive energy. When coupled with a

smart switchable film the window can then power itself.

    Sunpartner Technologies Expands in Asia

    In 2016, nearly 50% of Sunpartner Technologies' revenue will come from in

Japan, with several partners including NTT DOCOMO and KYOCERA. To accelerate

Sunpartner's position in Asia, the company is developing new partnerships in

Japan, where discussions are underway with around ten companies in the glazing,

watch, screen, and accessories industries.

    At the same time, the company is expanding in the Taiwanese and Chinese

markets, where it has an office in Shenzhen. In China, the first markets

targeted are smartwatches, with production starting in summer 2016, and

accessories, whose production will launch in Q2 of 2016. Sunpartner

Technologies then plans to target the glazing industry in China.
