Westport Fuel Systems Inc.

Dan Sceli, CEO of Westport Fuel Systems Inc. said:

 

We are excited to execute this agreement and build on our success with the Volvo Group and our HPDI™ technology.

 

“We are motivated to keep innovating and investing in strong business relationships with leading organizations that share our goals, of which Volvo Group is certainly one,”

 

“Powered by our shared vision for a cleaner tomorrow, we look forward to further collaboration and providing real solutions to decarbonize the long-haul and off-road transport sectors.”

 

As previously announced, Westport will contribute certain HPDI™ assets and opportunities, including related fixed assets, intellectual property, and business, into the JV. Volvo Group will acquire a 45% interest in the JV for the sum of approximately US$28 million, payable upon closing, plus up to an additional US$45 million as an earn out depending on the subsequent performance of the JV.
