K2fly’s new addition SATEVA hits home run, beats expectations


  • K2F's newly acquired SATEVA solutions has outperformed all expectations.
  • The technology firm is negotiating with two major mining players for SATEVA's solutions.

ASX listed technology company, K2fly Limited (ASX: K2F) was one of the few companies to have performed exceptionally well in the pandemic year 2020. On 28 October 2020, the company announced the acquisition of SATEVA, a Perth-based technology company.

The acquisition seems to have paid off for K2fly as SATEVA has put up an excellent performance, outstripping all targets and expectations.

The game-changing acquisition and its associated intellectual property has enriched K2fly with a raft of mine geology applications related to orebody knowledge and control. SATEVA solutions are extremely useful for K2fly’s existing global customer base, and these easily integrate with K2fly's mineral inventory solutions. Most of SATEVA's customers belong to the iron ore sector, such as Rio Tinto, FMG, and Roy Hill.

SATEVA's superb performance

In less than three months of acquiring SATEVA, K2fly has notched up more than AUD 850K of new purchase orders from significant mining houses in the iron ore sector. This is significant if one compares SATEVA's total revenue of AUD 1.4M in the financial year 2020. 

The advanced automated ore blocker solution is performing exceptionally well and surpassing customers' expectations. The solution has been tested at a significant iron ore producer in Western Australia. The outcome of these studies will be available to the mining clients from February onwards.

Though no deal is finalised yet, K2fly is in talks with two major mining firms.

K2fly's Chief Commercial Officer, Nic Pollock, also highlighted the perfect timing of the deal which is paving the way for great opportunities for K2fly to better service the international iron ore producers, especially in WA.
