Mobix Labs, Inc. (Nasdaq: MOBX) ("Mobix Labs" or the "Company"), a fabless semiconductor company developing disruptive next-generation connectivity solutions for wired, wireless 5G, military, defense, aerospace, and medical industries, today announced its financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended March 31, 2024.

"I am excited about March quarter's execution on foundational milestones including our entering into a definitive agreement for the synergistic acquisition of RaGE Systems, which is expected to be immediately accretive," said Fabian Battaglia, CEO of Mobix Labs. "Looking ahead, we have set the stage for Mobix Labs' continued best-in-class innovative solutions to capture opportunities in the wireless, connectivity and electromagnetic filtering industries, which we expect will create a versatile company that serves diverse end markets."

"We were pleased with our revenue growth of over 300% sequentially," commented Keyvan Samini President and CFO of Mobix Labs. "We are growing profitability and we expect to have access to substantial liquidity through our up to $100 million equity line of credit with B. Riley Principal Capital II, LLC to support our ambitious growth through strategic acquisition and, in the longer term, we are targeting to achieve a 60% gross margin and a 30% operating margin on a non-GAAP basis."

Financial Highlights for Fiscal Second Quarter of 2024

  • Revenue: Total revenue grew to $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2024, a 302% increase from $0.29 million in the first quarter of 2024.
  • Loss from Operations: GAAP loss from operations for the quarter was $8.56 million, compared to a loss of $17.27 million for the first quarter of 2024. Non-GAAP loss from operations for the quarter was $4.08 million compared to $4.21 million for the first quarter of 2024.

Financial Outlook

Subject to the closing of the Rage acquisition, we expect net revenues within a range of approximately $1.8-$2.2 million in the fiscal third quarter of 2024 and a range of $2.6 - $3.2 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2024.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company's results are determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Certain information presented reflects adjustments to GAAP measures that are referred in this presentation as "non-GAAP measures." Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide a more comparable analysis of the underlying operating performance of the business.

These non-GAAP measures include the following: Non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP gross margin. Each of these metrics reflects certain adjustments. Non-GAAP loss from operations excludes depreciation, amortization, merger and acquisition-related expenses, inventory write-offs and stock-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP gross margin excludes amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, inventory write-offs and stock-based compensation expenses.

These non-GAAP measures provide the Company with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of its business. The Company uses these metrics because management believes they provide more comparable measures to evaluate period-over-period operating performance since they exclude special items that are not indicative of the Company's core business or operations. These measures may be useful to an investor in evaluating the underlying operating performance of the Company's business.

Because all companies do not use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in the tables herein.
