Trading to Commence Tomorrow, July 15, 2021, Under the Symbol QUBT
LEESBURG, VA – July 14, 2021 – Quantum Computing Inc. (the “company” or “QCI”) (OTCQB: QUBT) (Nasdaq: QUBT), a leader in bridging the power of classical and quantum computing, has listed its shares to the Nasdaq Capital Market®. With the opening bell, QCI will become one of the few pure-play quantum software companies to list on the Nasdaq exchange. Its common stock will commence trading at market opening tomorrow, July 15, 2021, under the same symbol, QUBT.
QCI is expanding the use of quantum computing from the exclusive realm of scientific projects to broad adoption by businesses for solving their most advanced and important problems. The company’s flagship product, Qatalyst™, is the first to drive computational results on any quantum or classical computer without complex programming or low-level coding, quantum experts or exorbitantly long and costly development cycles. As ready-to-run quantum software, Qatalyst gives businesses their first real opportunity to affordably solve mission-critical problems today, related to supply chains, logistics, drug discovery, cybersecurity and transportation, with the speed and quality of results previously unattainable. Qatalyst is available via the AWS cloud and Braket, offering seamless access to both quantum and classical resources.
“We believe that quantum computing is the center of massive investment and will be one of the most impactful technologies of our century,” said Robert Liscouski, CEO of QCI. “This has been underscored by major investments from Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Alibaba as well as President Biden’s recently proposed $15 billion investment in advanced technologies including quantum. We are extremely well positioned to be a major part of this transformation with our software that, for the first time, seamlessly connects the current state of computing to a future in which quantum will be a critical asset in solving the most advanced problems challenging businesses. We are on the road to democratizing quantum computing and its techniques for all businesses who have been searching for additional computational power and accuracy and achieving value beyond pure quantum advantage.”
“We believe that the Nasdaq listing will elevate our profile in the investment community,” added Liscouski. “We also expect it to improve liquidity and transparency, broaden our shareholder base, and significantly enhance shareholder value over the long term.”
Software has always been essential to the adaptation and use of technology in the past whether it is classical computing technology, mobile phones and smart devices, etc. and it will be no different for quantum computing. Quantum computers demand immense effort to transform from classical problems into complex quantum programs. The tools required for this, quantum software development kits (SDKs), are extremely expensive and complicated, requiring quantum experts to write even simple programs, which can take months or years to successfully run. Additionally, each problem submitted to quantum computers must be updated to match the proprietary requirements of different machine hardware, reprogrammed with the same arduous, complex process and redeveloped with similarly lengthy timeframes.
Qatalyst eliminates the need for programming by quantum experts enabling today’s business analysts and programmers, for the first time, to directly submit and solve computational problems using quantum methods in under a week. It allows analysts and programmers to run the same program across any quantum or classical machine with no programming required. Qatalyst also uses the same quantum-ready techniques to solve computational problems on classical computers, accelerating and delivering a diversity of highly accurate results. As a result, QCI is making the value of quantum computing available to a much wider enterprise audience, to solve real business problems right now.
“This is a significant milestone for the company,” stated Robert Fagenson, QCI board member and former NYSE Floor Governor and Vice Chairman. “The listing of our securities onto a major exchange demonstrates that QCI is well positioned in the marketplace to be a major contributor to the quantum industry.”
According to projections from The Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C) and Hyperion Research, the quantum computing market is projected to grow exponentially. Globally, it was worth an estimated $320 million in 2020, and will grow at an anticipated 27% CAGR between 2020 and 2024, reaching approximately $830 million by 2024. Additionally, Gartner predicts that by 2023, 20% of organizations will be budgeting for quantum computing projects and 90% of enterprise investments in this area will engage consulting organizations to help shape problems that can leverage quantum algorithms.
QCI is unique in its capability to access a variety of quantum computers, including D-Wave, IonQ, and Rigetti, through Amazon’s Braket, as well as access to IBM quantum computers via the IBM cloud.
