NewWorld Capital Group invests in Coolerado Corporation
NewWorld Capital Group today announced a strategic investment in Coolerado Corporation, a manufacturer of super-energy-efficient air conditioning systems for commercial and residential applications.
Electrical energy costs associated with commercial air conditioning exceed $45 billion in the United States alone, representing more than a third of total electricity consumed in these buildings. Coolerado products can achieve electricity savings of up to 90% compared to conventional air conditioning systems, thus bringing significant bottom line savings to its customers. Its products are highly reliable and virtually maintenance free.
In light of rapidly growing demand for energy-saving air conditioning, NewWorld’s investment will enable Coolerado to expand its sales and product support capability in domestic and international markets, as well as increase and automate its production capacity.
NewWorld Capital will appoint three of the five members of Coolerado’s board of directors. Spring Mountain Capital, LP (www.springmountaincapital.com) is the lead co-investor in the investment.
Coolerado co-founder Alan Gillan expressed his view on the investment: “We are delighted to have NewWorld Capital as a partner in our growth. Our company is confronting an enormous opportunity as demand for increased energy efficiency and reduced carbon emissions grows in countries around the world.” Added Mike Luby, Coolerado’s CEO, “The experience, skills and market access of the NewWorld team will be crucial as we drive to meet rapidly-growing global demand for energy-efficient air conditioning.”
Ali Iz, a Founding Partner of NewWorld Capital, noted: “We were deeply impressed with Coolerado’s innovative commercial air conditioning products and the economic benefits they bring to customers. Coolerado’s technology may be the biggest breakthrough in air conditioning technology in close to a century. We look forward to working with Mike and his team to achieve significant sales and earnings growth, as the company deploys its energy-saving products around the world to reduce the financial and environmental costs associated with air conditioning.”
Founded in 2004, Coolerado designs, manufactures and markets super-energy-efficient air conditioning systems for light commercial and residential use, based on its proprietary, patented, and proven technology. Customer energy savings as much as 90% have been recorded with this cost-effective technology. Coolerado products are highly reliable and virtually maintenance-free and are currently operating in 21 countries around the world. The Company is headquartered in Denver, Colorado (www.coolerado.com).
