Additionally, we continued to lay the foundation for significant future growth highlighted by the recently achieved automotive qualification of our SuperGaN Gen IV FET device. With strong customer momentum and strong blue-chip strategic partnerships, we expect continued product revenue growth in the coming quarters.”

Cameron McAulay, CFO of Transphorm, stated, “Through a series of successful transactions over the past few months, we have significantly strengthened our balance sheet and cash position while also realizing a $50 million increase in shareholder equity since June 2021. In part as result of our stronger financial position, we believe the Company is now positioned to meet the qualification requirements for uplisting Transphorm’s common stock to the NASDAQ, an ambition we will continue to pursue aggressively in the coming months.”
