Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 and Recent Highlights
Primit Parikh, Transphorm’s President and Co-founder, commented, “We are thrilled to have achieved our 8thconsecutive quarter of record product revenue as well as demonstrated a key capability benchmark of shipping over 1 million adapter GaN products in December 2021. As overall demand for GaN solutions is accelerating, our sales pipeline continues to expand rapidly driven by our products’ unique, easy-to-interface GaN architecture, our world-leading GaN portfolio with a broad range of power capabilities (45 Watt – 5 Kilowatt already powering our customers’ systems today, scalable to 100 Kilowatt plus in the future), and our products’ established real-world performance and reliability. Our emphasis going forward is to capitalize on this momentum, grow our ecosystem of solution partners, and expand our manufacturing capacity with strong focus on providing a total supply chain solution to customers.”
Cameron McAulay, CFO of Transphorm, stated, “Over the past two quarters we have completed multiple equity financings from a combination of strategic and institutional investors, resulting in a significant increase in both the Company’s cash position and stockholders’ equity at quarter end. This additional capital provides expanded operational flexibility in support of our future anticipated growth, and we believe the Company’s strengthened balance sheet satisfies all of the financial qualification requirements for uplisting to the NASDAQ. As such, we expect and look forward to providing a definitive update on this important milestone in the near future.”
