Nano One® Materials Corp. ("Nano One" or the "Company") is a clean technology company with patented processes for the production of lithium-ion battery cathode active materials ("CAM") that enable secure and resilient supply chains by driving down cost, complexity, energy intensity, and environmental footprint. Nano One has filed its condensed interim consolidated financial statements (the "financial statements"), and management's discussion & analysis ("MD&A") as at and for the three months ended March 31, 2024 ("2024 Q1") and is pleased to provide the following highlights.

License and Alliance Agreement with Worley Chemetics®

On May 1, 2024, Nano One entered into a Strategic Alliance Agreement and License Agreement with Worley Chemetics (a wholly owned Canadian subsidiary of Worley Limited, a global engineering leader in sustainability solutions). Under the Strategic Alliance Agreement, Nano One and Worley will jointly develop, market, and deploy One-Pot process enabled cathode plant designs, helping accelerate the deployment of One-Pot process LFP production and other cathode chemistries. Nano One and Worley will jointly develop a CAM package that incorporates Nano One's One-Pot process into a modular process engineering design package with intellectual property rights, flow sheets, detailed engineering, the operational know-how of both parties, and applicable proprietary equipment.

The License Agreement oversees the sale of CAM packages, including necessary cross-licensing of intellectual property, license fees, and remuneration to both parties over a term of up to 20 years.

The One-Pot enabled CAM package will be marketed, sold, and deployed to a wide range of customers in North America, Europe, the Indo-Pacific, and other regions globally, enabling them to develop competitive CAM production assets to meet emerging market demand in renewable energy storage and electric vehicle sectors. The CAM package is expected to reduce risk and cost, while accelerating the timeline to project certainty and financial investment decision.

2024 Objectives and Commercialization Update

LFP optimization and product validation work will continue through 2024 and into 2025 for the purposes of (a) Generating product sales and first revenues, and expanding capacity, up to 1,000-2,000 tpa, at the Company's existing facilities in Candiac Québec; (b) Securing larger volume customer offtakes in support of the current 25,000 tpa LFP plant development project; (c) Informing the feasibility study (FEL 3) currently underway and financial investment decisions for the 25,000 tpa LFP project; and (d) Developing, marketing, licensing, and deploying of One-Pot enabled LFP CAM packages (engineering process design packages) in alliance with Worley.
