At the effective time of the transaction, each share of common stock of PTK will be exchanged for one ordinary share of Valens, and each outstanding warrant of PTK will be assumed by Valens and will become a warrant exercisable for one-half of one ordinary share of Valens. Prior to the effective time, each preferred share of Valens will be converted into one ordinary share of Valens. Immediately following such preferred share conversation but prior to the effective time, Valens intends to effect a reverse stock split of each Valens ordinary share into a number of Valens ordinary shares such that each such ordinary share has an implied value of $10.00 per share as of an agreed measurement date shortly prior to closing and based on an agreed equity valuation methodology. PTK will issue 77.7 million new shares to acquire Valens. In addition, substantially contemporaneously with the Effective Time, Valens will also issue securities pursuant to the subscription agreements wherein PIPE Investors have agreed to subscribe for and purchase, and Valens has agreed to issue and sell to the PIPE Investors, an aggregate of 12.5 million Valens ordinary shares (on a post-reverse stock split basis) for an aggregate purchase price of $125 million. This business combination values the post-transaction Valens at an initial pro-forma equity value of approximately $1.16 billion. Valens’ existing shareholders and management would own approximately 78% of the combined entity post-closing, assuming no redemptions by PTK public shareholders. Valens shareholders will continue to hold their existing equity in the combined company. The transaction is expected to deliver approximately $240 million of gross proceeds, including up to $115 million of cash held in PTK's trust account (assuming no redemptions) and $125 million from a fully subscribed PIPE offering led by an established global institutional investor, as well as by Mediatek, a leading global semiconductor company for mobile, home and automotive. PTK's sponsor will also be participating in the PIPE offering. The combined company will be called Valens and will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "VLN" following the close of the transaction. Following completion of the transaction, Valens will continue to be led by its experienced management team, with Gideon Ben-Zvi as Chief Executive Officer, Dror Heldenberg as Chief Financial Officer, and all six Valens Founders retaining their senior management or board positions. Ker Zhang from PTK will join the Valens Board of Directors upon closing of the transaction. The transaction requires the approval of the stockholders of PTK and Valens and is subject to customary closing conditions, including a registration statement being declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission, PTK having at least $5,000,001 of net tangible assets remaining prior to completion, Valens’s application to list its ordinary shares shall have been approved by the New York Stock Exchange, the filing and obtaining of certain notices and approvals to and by the Israeli Innovation Authority, and the aggregate amount remaining in PTK’s trust account after taking into account all redemptions, plus the aggregate amount sold in the PIPE being equal to or greater than $215 million. The Board of Directors of each of Valens and PTK have unanimously approved the transaction. The meeting of the shareholders of PTK is scheduled on July 13, 2021.

Valens Announces That It Has Started an Evaluation with Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation (Sony) to Develop and Integrate MIPI A-PHY Technology into Next-Generation Image Sensor Products

2021-06-28 13:00:00

Valens announced that it has started an evaluation with Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation (Sony) to develop and integrate MIPI A-PHY technology into next-generation image sensor products. A-PHY is a long-reach serializer-deserializer (SerDes) physical layer interface for long-reach, ultra-high-speed automotive applications. It was released by the MIPI Alliance in September 2020 as a standard seeking to simplify the integration of cameras, sensors and displays in vehicles, while also incorporating functional safety and security. Valens will be the first company to market with A-PHY compliant chipsets, having recently completed a successful tapeout of its VA7000 chipset family. Integration of A-PHY into system components such as image sensors and SoCs will eliminate the need for proprietary bridge solutions meant to extend CSI-2 and DSI-2 data streams, which would simplify car architecture and lower total system cost. A-PHY offers data rates as high as 16 Gbps with a roadmap to 48 Gbps and beyond, with an unprecedented ultra-low packet error rate (PER) of 10-19 and high noise immunity to electromagnetic interference.

Technical Analysis

When trying to optimize the timing of an investment, it's critical to analyze whether the stock looks overbought or oversold, and in which direction the momentum is moving. Valens Semiconductor's stock is now priced above its 5-day and 50-day, but below its 200-day moving average, while its MACD (moving average convergence divergence) indicates that the stock's price movement momentum is strengthening. Historically, this is a positive setup in both the short and medium-term. The company is trading near it's 12-month low, which signals it struggle to keep above it support price. Meanwhile, looking at the Stochastic Oscillator and RSI (relative strength index), Valens Semiconductor's stock indicates that it's likely oversold. Overall, these technical indicators don't clearly signal directional momentum. Therefore, this stock received a cumulative TA (technical analysis) score of 62.

Balance Sheet Analysis

Two main balance sheet metrics are driving the positive outlook for Valens Semiconductor's financial strength going forward. Valens Semiconductor has done an excellent job managing its liabilities. Valens Semiconductor's liabilities stood at 24.2 in the current filing, which represents a 18.6% change from the previous report. This performance is all interesting relative to their peers and suggests that their stock price has room to grow to reflect a higher intrinsic value. Therefore, we rated their liabilities movement with a score of 92. Also, Valens Semiconductor publishes impressive results related to book value factors in this report. Specifically, price to book ratio (P/B) now sits at 2.0 and represents a -46.7% change from the previous report. Their industry-leading book value factors momentum reinforces an expectation for future positive momentum for their stock price going forward. The company's book value factors component, therefore, received a grade of 73. On the other hand, Cash & Equivalents, jumped out as looking problematic. Valens Semiconductor did a poor job related to managing cash and cash equivalents this period, which stood at 45.0, representing a -20.8% change from the previous filing. The company's cash and cash equivalents metrics highlight a difficult overall financial situation, which may, unfortunately, continue moving forward unless management makes significant changes. Discouraging results like these statistically lead to negative pressure in stock prices, so we rated their cash and cash equivalents with a score of 45. Therefore, we scored its balance sheet a 75.
