THE WOCKET ARRIVES

KRIS TUTTLE – MARCH 23, 2015

Company Update 

After months of hard work and anticipation the Wocket has shipped. This event addresses the first chorus of skeptics who have insisted that "the Wocket will never ship." Even within the limits of an "early access device" our initial testing has gone very well in outlets ranging from CVS to Whole Foods to Panera using Visa (in both debit and credit mode) as well as American Express cards.

So the most interesting real-world interaction occurred in a CVS where the "hand card to cashier" message popped up. I had prefaced my swipe with the comment that I was using "a new ultra secure credit card" and when I handed over she responded "oh is this one of those cards where you can store all your cards on?" To which I replied yes indeed and she simply said "cool" and handed it back.

Even after a few days of use I was comfortable with the Wocket to head out for an evening without my wallet – just a few dollars in cash and my license. Having misplaced my wallet a week or two ago I can also say that the anxiety level from misplacing your Wocket is much, much lower. I wouldn't want to lose my Wocket but would feel none of that fear and panic that comes from losing my wallet with "everything in there." In fact by having all the plastic cards safely at home I wouldn't actually lose anything or need to change out all my cards to new account numbers. Getting a new Wocket and reloading the cards would be minor job but far less than cancelling accounts, refuting fraudulent charges and having new cards issued.

Anecdotes are not rigorous market research but the awareness level of the technology was a surprise and comfort level with the thing itself was reassuring. NXT-ID is using the input from early access users while preparing for their first production run to begin to fill pre-orders beginning in late April. The next production milestone is to deliver between 5,000 and 10,000 units in June.

The progress over the last two months certainly makes us feel comfortable with our 40,000 unit estimate for 2015 in terms of production capability.

Stock Conclusion

So after suffering from a prolonged "wait and see" attitude the stock has moved up sharply recently in response to the initial shipments. Our own experience with the device so far would reinforce the view that 2015 will be a good year for the Wocket and NXTD shareholders.

The two major risks remaining are 1) the ability to ramp up production to thousands of units at first and then tens of thousands per month and 2) mainstream consumer reactions and adoption.

Our IV of $8.18 makes the shares very attractive, albeit with some expectation of success built into the estimate. If the company meets their plans in 2015, it would push our IV estimate up to $17.42 for 2016.
