Transphorm Announces Record Fiscal 2022 Full Year Revenue of $24.1 Million

- an 89% Year-Over-Year Increase as Fiscal 2022 Fourth Quarter Revenue Increased 103% 

- Company to Host a Webcast Today at 5:00 p.m. ET to Review the Quarterly Results and Provide a Business Update -

GOLETA, Calif.--()--Transphorm, Inc. (NASDAQ: TGAN)—an innovative design pioneer and global supplier of efficient, high-reliability, high-performance gallium nitride (GaN) power conversion products, announced today financial results for the Company’s 2022 fiscal fourth quarter and the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022.

Fiscal Fourth Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Achieved up listing of Transphorm’s common stock to the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol TGAN.
  • Full year FY22 revenue increased 89% year-over-year to a record $24.1 million due to strong growth in product revenue based on prior targeted investments in designs for a broader market.
  • FY22 product revenue increased sequentially for the ninth consecutive quarter to a record of over $4 million, a 190% sequential increase when compared to Q4 FY21.
  • Secured largest SuperGaN® high-power Gen IV FET production order for the Company to date for over 500,000 units of 3kW class power supplies. The magnitude of this order clearly demonstrates Transphorm’s continuing leadership in design innovation and manufacturing reliability of high-power GaN.
  • Secured laptop adapter design-win from a Tier 1 Fortune 100 company, including an initial purchase order of 50,000 units of SuperGaN® Gen IV 240 mohm class FETs. These FETs provide higher efficiency for 65W fast-charging adapter applications versus competing e-mode GaN FETs that require a larger 150 mohm device for similar applications. As a result, these Transphorm SuperGaN® FETs allow our customers to do more with less.
  • Secured pre-production POs from ODMs for large Asia mobile phone (65W) and leading WW e-retailer (140W) projects
  • Announced the first 99% efficient power switching demonstration from a 1200V GaN power transistor prototype, demonstrating Transphorm’s cutting-edge innovation in high-power GaN.
  • Cash and equivalents as of March 31, 2022 were $34.0 million.

Primit Parikh, Transphorm’s President and Co-founder, commented, “We are excited to continue to deliver strong revenue growth, having achieved our 9th consecutive quarter of record product revenue. We also reaffirmed our leadership in high-power GaN by securing our largest order to date for over a half-million 3kW class GaN products.

Dr. Parikh continued, “The demand for our GaN solutions is strong, driven by our products’ unique, easy to interface architecture, world leading GaN product portfolio with a broad range of power capabilities from 45W to 5kW, and leading performance with field reliability. With a strong backlog in place, our current focus is on managing supply chain constraints, expanding our manufacturing capacity, and continuing to grow our ecosystem of solution partners”.

Cameron McAulay, CFO of Transphorm, stated “During the 2022 fiscal year we completed an uplisting to the NASDAQ, dramatically improving the Company’s liquidity. Along with the additional capital we raised in fiscal Q3 of 2022, this provides expanded operational flexibility in support of our future anticipated growth.”

Fiscal 2022 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results

Revenue for the 2022 fiscal fourth quarter was $4.93 million, compared to $4.6 million in the 2022 fiscal third quarter ended December 31, 2021 and $2.4 million in the 2021 fiscal fourth quarter ended March 31, 2021. Revenue for the quarter reflected yet another record in product sales from ramping shipments of GaN devices for a broad range of power conversion applications, with a 10% sequential increase from the prior quarter. For the full fiscal year 2022, product sales increased 189% as compared to full fiscal year 2021.

Operating expenses on a GAAP basis were $5.6 million in the 2022 fiscal fourth quarter, compared to $5.4 million in the prior quarter and $5.2 million in the 2021 fiscal fourth quarter. 2022 fiscal fourth quarter operating expenses consisted of R&D expenses of $1.6 million and SG&A expenses of $4.0 million.
