Intuitive Machines Announces $20 Million Equity Investment

HOUSTON, Aug. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intuitive Machines, Inc. (Nasdaq: LUNR, “Intuitive Machines,” or the “Company”), a leading space exploration, infrastructure, and services company, today announced it has entered into a definitive securities purchase agreement with a certain institutional investor for the issuance and sale of stock and warrants in exchange for a $20 million equity investment. The agreement is expected to close on September 5, 2023, subject to customary closing conditions.

Intuitive Machines intends to use the net proceeds for general corporate purposes and working capital needs as the Company ramps activity across key growth programs. As a result of this investment, the Company does not currently expect the need to utilize the previously disclosed and unused $50 million Committed Equity Facility.

Intuitive Machines CEO Steve Altemus said, “We continue to execute and lead the development of lunar space with the expected launch of IM-1 mid-November, and IM-2, IM-3 launches in 2024. In addition, we have started the transition of NASA’s $719 million OMES III contract and expect revenue to begin in Q4. This equity investment will help ensure a smooth transition and provide the working capital needed to execute for our customer on day 1.”

“We continue to be disciplined and opportunistic with capital. Given the timing of milestone-based payments, we elected to strengthen our balance sheet defensively, as we grow and execute on new programs,” said CFO Erik Sallee.
