"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.

Financial Highlights

  • Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 increased 59.4% as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • Quarterly revenues increased 8.5% to $5.1 million, up from $4.7 million recorded in the fourth quarter 2023.
  • Gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 was 63.2% of revenues as compared to 56.6% for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 and up 640 basis points from Q4 2023.
  • Operating loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 was $1.8 million as compared to $3.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • Net cash used in operating activities reduced to $0.8 million (a $5.0 million reduction from first quarter 2023) as a result of increased sales, margin expansion and expense management efforts.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss (a non-GAAP measure) was $1.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2024. See EBITDA Reconciliation below.
  • Backlog (a non-GAAP measure) increased at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2024 to $8.3 million as compared to $6.5 million at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • Cash balance as of March 31, 2024, was approximately $3.6 million compared to $0.8 million as of December 31, 2023.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation

References to "EBITDA" mean net loss, before considering interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization. References to Adjusted EBITDA excludes irregular or non-recurring items and are not directly related to the Company's core operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP. Management believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, in addition to operating profit, net income and other U.S. GAAP measures, are useful to investors to evaluate the Company's results because they exclude certain items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on our results for any particular period. Investors should recognize that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA might not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies. These measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, any measure of performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. A reconciliation of non-U.S. GAAP EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure in accordance with SEC Regulation G follows:
