Wi2Wi designs, manufactures and markets miniaturized embedded wireless connectivity solutions (incorporating both hardware and software) for premium industrial/medical, smart-home/smart building and government markets worldwide. These products and value added services provide highly integrated, multifunctional wireless sub systems for mobile applications of all forms for mobile devices.
The results of the quarter follow the completion of the amalgamation of Wi2Wi Corporation and International Sovereign Energy Corp. The additional capital introduced, following the completion of the RTO transaction, was utilized to discharge certain liabilities and other obligations, as well as to generate working capital to allow the Company to satisfy the backlog demand from customers that had accumulated.
The growth in revenue in the third quarter of 2013 has slowed somewhat due to the reduced ability of the Company to source components and to ship to its customers. The Company had additional shippable backlog of approximately $1.4 million for the third quarter of 2013, which would have been shipped under different circumstances. In addition, logistics delays affected total revenue billings for the quarter.
The Company is experiencing strong demand for its products across multiple business segments and as of the date of this release has record backlogs.
Gross margin also declined slightly in the current quarter due to some product revaluation and revenue mix.
Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company announced a private placement, which is expected to significantly address the working capital and growth capital needs of the Company and its large number of design win’s that are expected to go into production in 2014. This private placement is spearheaded by Paradigm Capital as lead agent, with Byron Capital and M-Partners as part of the syndicate to raise $4 million with an anticipated close of early December 2013.
Dr. Hans Black, Chairman of Wi2Wi, stated, “We are extremely pleased that our fund raising efforts have resulted in support from the investment community, resulting in the recently announced private placement to raise substantial new equity. The flow of new funds will allow us to build on the solid base we have established in 2013 to date. We have set a strategic direction for Wi2Wi building on our well received product range, supported by a highly qualified engineering group, a strong operational structure and supported by dedicated sales and administrative staff.”
Dr. Reza Ahy, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We have been systematically building up a pipeline of quality customers and industry leaders. Wi2Wi currently has 55 design win’s or design in's for its third generation WiFi and WiFi Bluetooth and GPS products. The increase in demand for our third generation GPS and Wi-Fi Bluetooth products is exceedingly strong, and the large number of customers that have advanced to the design wins and design in's bodes well for Wi2Wi’s future. This gives a clear indication of the high acceptance levels we have been able to achieve through our high quality products, allowing customers faster time to market with feature rich software functionalities."
