Delta Drone International Limited (ASX: DLT, Delta Drone or the Company), Australia’s first listed drones-as-a-service company, re-commences trading on the ASX today following the successful merger between world-leading drone safety company ParaZero and international drone services provider Delta Drone South Africa.
The re-listing follows a strongly supported capital raise of $5 million at $0.04 a share, resulting in a market capitalisation of $20 million. The capital raise has enabled new domestic and international investors to join the register, along with existing ParaZero shareholders.
The combined entity achieved pro forma combined revenue in CY19 of A$5.8m and a historical revenue year-on-year growth rate of 40%. Delta Drone International will provide drone services to the mining, agricultural and engineering industries through a range of contract and project services including aerial surveying and mapping, security and surveillance and blast monitoring and fragment analysis as well as safety system and compliance management. The business is built to meet the demand for fast and accurate survey data, as well as to support all the regulatory, insurance and maintenance requirements needed to run these services safely and consistently.
Funds from the capital raise will be used to expand into the Australian market, initially targeting
drone services for the local mining and agricultural related industries – an addressable market
in 2020 of around A$277 million in Australia alone or US$486 million globallyi
Delta Drone is an established international provider of drone services within these sectors with
operations in South Africa, Ghana and Namibia. Existing customers include South32 and Newmont Mining. The capital raise will also enable the new entity to establish an Australian headquarters and expand its operations in Southern Africa.
Delta Drone International CEO Chris Clark said, “This strategic merger provides the business
with substantial growth opportunities, both in the short term and the long term. Australia’s vast
