Abstract: Let the Lie group $ G$ be a semidirect product, $ G = SK$, of a connected, closed, normal subgroup $ S$ and a closed subgroup $ K$. Let $ \Lambda $ be a nonunitary character of $ S$, and let $ {K_\Lambda }$ be its stability subgroup in $ K$. Let $ {I^{\Lambda \mu }}$, for any irreducible representation $ \mu $ of $ {K_\Lambda }$, denote the representation $ {I^{\Lambda \mu }}$ of $ G$ induced by the representation $ \Lambda \mu $ of $ S{K_\Lambda }$. The representation spaces are subspaces of the distributions.

We show that $ {I^{\Lambda \mu }}$ is ultra-irreducible when the corresponding Poisson transform is injective, and find a sufficient condition for this injectivity.
