Second Quarter 2023 Highlights
- Q2 2023 revenue was $4.1 million compared to $4.6 million in Q2 2022.
- Gross profit of $1.9 million compared to $2.0 million in Q2 2022 despite lower international sales from the semiconductor materials division.
- Gross profit margin reached a record 47.2% compared to 44.5% in Q2 2022, an increase of 270 basis points despite inflationary pressures.
- Core LNA revenue grew 23% to $1.8 million from $1.4 million in Q2 2022.
- Spectrum sales were $2.3 million, a year-over-year decline of 27%, primarily due to lower international sales and softer semiconductor industry-wide demand.
- Loss from operations was $508,110 primarily due to the Company’s ongoing investments in new product development, including new 5G and wireless infrastructure products and MMIC designs as well as a wide-ranging automated CRM system.
- At June 30, 2023, cash, cash equivalents, and liquid marketable securities totaled $9.3 million, ample capital to execute the Company’s strategic growth initiatives.
- AmpliTech expects continued growth in demand for its core LNA and semiconductor products as it works through its $66M CRM opportunity funnel.
Fawad Maqbool, CEO of AmpliTech, said, “In the second quarter our core LNA business remained strong offset by weaker semiconductor sales, especially internationally. Gross profit was modestly lower, while the gross profit margin reached a record level. We have continued to invest for future growth and are excited to share that our ongoing R&D projects centered around our 5G ORAN massive MIMO radio units are progressing well and are on track with our expectations.
“Through the utilization of Massive MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) antennas coupled with beam forming technology, we are enabling a precise and efficient allocation of spectrum resources. This breakthrough approach is addressing existing performance limitations, facilitating support for a larger user base within each cell, and enhancing the overall end-user experience in densely populated regions.
“Our cutting-edge 5G ORAN radios are also set to showcase our proprietary LNA 5G MMIC chips. This technology, characterized by an exceptionally low noise figure, will help differentiate our products from competitors, as it will enable an increased coverage range. As a result, this innovation reduces the requisite number of radios in a 5G network, leading to an opportunity to enhance the return on investment for every deployment site. We anticipate the receipt of initial prototype units by our AGTGSS division in the fourth quarter of this year.
“The robust investments made by AmpliTech in these new technology endeavors are paving the way for the introduction of novel product solutions with inherently higher gross margins that should in turn yield higher net income. We believe that these solutions are poised to elevate the company to new heights when they are introduced and available to the market, which we expect will be in 2024,” concluded Mr. Maqbool.
