Amazon Could Become the 2nd Largest Shareholder of Point Mobile
Point Mobile is one of the fastest growing enterprise handheld manufacturers in the world. Based in South Korea, Point Mobile offers a full range of high quality products for Enterprise Mobility and various vale-added solutions to prepare their customers for the future.
One of the most interesting aspects of Point Mobile is that it has given a pre-emptive rights to Amazon, one of its major customers. According to this contract which was signed in July 2020, the length of the contract lasts 8 years and it includes Amazon purchasing various products from Point Mobile (cumulative amount of $200 million in sales). In return, Amazon could purchase 1.48 million new shares in Point Mobile. If Amazon exercises 100% of this rights, Amazon would become the second-largest shareholder with a 17.7% stake in the company.
The fact that Amazon was willing to enter into a long-term contract with Point Mobile is positive for the company. It shows that Amazon is impressed with the company’s products, so much so that it is willing to become the second-largest shareholder in the company. Later on, if Amazon does exercise its rights and become the 2nd largest shareholder in the company, this would also have a major positive impact on Point Mobile since it could result in significantly higher incremental revenues from Amazon.
