“Following a challenging 2023, we accelerated our momentum by increasing revenue as a result of our strong foothold in the Automotive market and deeper penetration in the 5G Infrastructure market with previously announced satellite communications and point to multi-point communications shipments,” said Ryan Pratt, Founder and CEO. “This was an excellent quarter with over $5.1 million in revenue and a backlog increase of 27.7% from Q1 2023. We believe we are on target to achieve the $21.0 to $26.0 million revenue guidance we previously provided.”

Corporate Highlights

  • Completed a $5.0 million private placement, with net cash proceeds of approximately $3.0 million after deduction of expenses and conversion of existing debt. We plan to use the new capital to accelerate the Company’s growth and strengthen its competitive position through new market penetration, expanded product offerings, additional R&D initiatives, and new capital equipment.
  • Announced the acquisition of strategic GaN product portfolio and intellectual property of Gallium Semiconductor. We believe this acquisition will accelerate our penetration into this market by an estimated two years.
  • Extended maturity of primary credit facility to 2026.
  • Management reiterates 2024 revenue guidance of $21.0 to $26.0 million.
