Leo Motors Inc. (OTCMKTS:LEOM) is a penny play that exploded higher on Tuesday on a headline-driven move off recent pivot lows in the $0.08/share area. The driver was the company’s announcement that it had signed a sales contract with Miho Story, Inc. for the manufacture of smartphone electric vending trucks. According to the press release, the initial order totals approximately thirty million dollars for 500 trucks. This will be followed in two years by the manufacture of 1,000 trucks for an additional sixty million dollars. The truck design and operation solutions were developed by Leo Motors Korea.

As noted above, the company just announced that it has signed an initial sales contract with Miho Story, Inc. for the manufacture of smart phone electric vending trucks.
According to the press release, the initial order totals approximately thirty million dollars for 500 trucks. This will be followed in two years by the manufacture of 1,000 trucks for an additional sixty million dollars. The truck design and operation solutions were developed by Leo Motors Korea.
“The vending trucks will be equipped with Leo Motors Korea’s proprietary high efficient Energy Storage System (ESS) that interacts with the cloud server and the vehicle diagnosis system developed by Leo Artificial Intelligence Connected, Inc, another LEOM subsidiary. Additionally, the ESS power source is “swappable” using Leo’s patented cartridge battery system.” By using ESS, the trucks avoid using Internal Combustion Engines and their pollution while using electricity to market smart phones and their accessories on the street.
Being connected to Leo’s patented Multi Drive Recorder (MDR) allows vending truck operators to move in real time to high sales potential locations. Leo’s connected car technology also provides anti-theft, on road battery swap, and real time maintenance services because Leo’s MDR is continually scanning every component of the vending truck.
Earning a current market cap value of $29.3M, LEOM has a decent store ($1.5M) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to an appreciable load ($493.77k) of total accumulated debt.
LEOM is making real money, with trailing 12-month revenues coming in at 4.31M.
