United Airlines orders 200 electric vertical aircraft

 

Joe Kernen: United Airlines meanwhile making a big bet on the future of flying, think Jetsons and Urban Air Mobility and I hear things like that it just makes me nervous. Phil, the things unless you unless you perfect anti-gravity, it just makes me nervous anyway what are you talking about?

Phil LeBeau: Joe, you don't believe in eVTOL's electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft? It is the future and certainly United thinks it's a big part of the future. Today, in a leading uh one of the startups in the eVTOL space Archer is announcing that it is going to be going public through a SPAC that is being backed by United Airlines, Stellantis that is the Peugeot Fiat-Chrysler company that just merged, proceeds from this SPAC 1.1 billion dollars. This is a company that is developing eVTOL aircraft with delivery starting in 2024. Just a reminder again eVTOLs, basically you're looking at Urban Air Mobility aircraft can carry up to four passengers, they are piloted, it's not like it's autonomous at this point, United ordering 200 of these from Archer with an expected range of up to 60 miles, so think about being in downtown New York and then zipping out to LaGuardia here are the co-CEOs of the Archer talking with us yesterday.

Brett Adcock: We want this to be a really affordable means for a mass market transportation solution. We believe our entry point in the market will be around three dollars per passenger mile.

Adam Goldstein: It's really pretty incredible to think about how big this market can be. The partnership with United really gives us a chance to get to market first and really helps us accelerate our timeline.

Phil LeBeau: United ordering 200 of these in a 1 billion order so they are ordering 200 of these Archer eVTOLs, now the first delivery is expected in 2024, still unclear from United if it will operate these, if its partner, its regional airline partner Mesa will operate these, that still needs to be sorted out down the road but make no mistake this is a big new big deal for United guys saying we will have Urban Air Mobility vehicles in our future so theoretically you could be going from somewhere in downtown or from Hollywood to LAX and zip out there as opposed to taking a car share service, it could be part of the entire United experience.

These statements are based on the current expectations of Atlas’ management and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on, by any investor as a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of Atlas and Archer. These statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties regarding Atlas’ businesses and the Business Combination, and actual results may differ materially. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the early stage nature of Archer’s business and its past and projected future losses; Archer’s ability to manufacture and deliver aircraft and its impact on the risk of investment; Archer’s dependence on United Airlines for its current aircraft orders and development process, and the risk that United Airlines cancels its contracts with Archer; risks relating to the uncertainty of the projections included in the model; the effectiveness of Archer’s marketing and growth strategies, including its ability to effectively market air transportation as a substitute for conventional methods of transportation; Archer’s ability to compete in the competitive urban air mobility and eVTOL industries; Archer’s ability to obtain expected or required certifications, licenses, approvals, and authorizations from transportation authorities; Archer’s ability to achieve its business milestones and launch products on anticipated timelines; Archer’s dependence on suppliers and service partners for the parts and components in its aircraft; Archer’s ability to develop commercial-scale manufacturing capabilities; regulatory requirements and other obstacles outside Archer’s control that slow market adoption of electric aircraft, such as Archer’s inability to obtain and maintain adequate facilities and Vertiport infrastructure; Archer’s ability to and hire, train and retain qualified personnel; risks related to Archer’s Aerial Ride Sharing Business operating in densely populated metropolitan areas and heavily regulated airports; adverse publicity from accidents involving aircraft, helicopters or lithium-ion battery cells; the impact of labor and union activities on Archer’s work force; losses resulting from indexed price escalation clauses in purchase orders and cost overruns; regulatory risks related to evolving laws and regulations in Archer’s industries; the inability of the parties to successfully or timely consummate the proposed business combination, including the risk that any required regulatory approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect the combined company or the expected benefits of the proposed business combination or that the approval of the stockholders of Atlas Crest or Archer is not obtained; a decline in our securities following the business combination if it fails to meet the expectations of investors or securities analysts; our inability to protect our intellectual property rights from unauthorized use by third parties; our need for and the availability of additional capital; cybersecurity risks; the dual class structure of our common stock, which will limit other investors’ ability to influence corporate matters; the amount of redemption requests made by Atlas Crest’s public stockholders; the ability of Atlas Crest or the combined company to issue equity or equity-linked securities in connection with the proposed business combination or in the future, and those factors discussed in Atlas Crest’s final prospectus filed on October 29, 2020, under the heading “Risk Factors,” and other documents of Atlas Crest filed, or to be filed, with the SEC.  If any of these risks materialize or if assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that Atlas presently does not know or that Atlas currently believes are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements provide Atlas’ expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this communication. Atlas anticipates that subsequent events and developments will cause Atlas’ assessments to change. However, while Atlas may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, Atlas specifically disclaims any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Atlas’ assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this communication. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.
