XCOR AEROSPACE ACQUIRES SPACE EXPEDITION CORPORATION
The acquisition signals XCOR’s commitment to being “the most active space flight company in the world” through a marked increase in integrated sales activities and multiple wet lease operations. As the most active spaceflight company in the world, XCOR is poised to become the company which delivers the most value for the price. With its high frequency of flights, XCOR will learn the most the quickest in the emerging commercial spaceflight industry and more customers will benefit from Lynx’s incredible in-the-cockpit experience.
XCOR CEO Jeff Greason noted that “For the past two years, SXC has provided XCOR Aerospace with an expanding roster of new customers and commercial partners. As XCOR Space Expeditions, we look forward to making the most of their expertise and insights with customers and commercial partners. With their sales and marketing engine now a part of the XCOR brand, we deepen the connection between customers and Lynx.”
“Both as a founder of SXC, and through my background in e-Business and Formula One, I understand that exceptional engineering and design are vital for performance and the overall customer experience,” said SXC co-founder and XCOR Aerospace board member Michiel Mol. “XCOR Aerospace is the best I’ve seen in spacecraft and rocket engine design. With this acquisition XCOR Space Expeditions will provide direct connection to the XCOR brand and more up-to-date information about Lynx for individual ticket holders, wet lease customers and commercial partners. The result is an integrated XCOR that will inspire our customers and investors, and deliver a more seamless and exciting experience overall.”
Detailed terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The all-stock transaction was reviewed by the United States Treasury Department’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the US (CFIUS) which determined the acquisition and exchange of shares was not a “covered transaction.”
