NEW YORK, NY, December 12, 2023 – An immersive technology platform company, Glimpse recently announced its plans for a strategic shift from current immersive technologies that include virtual-reality headsets, tablets and phones to spatial computing, cloud and AI-driven immersive software solutions. From cutting-edge software development to immersive content creation, Glimpse pushes the boundaries of what is possible in the realm of extended realities.
This AI emerger and player in the tech industry is featured in the PRISM Emerging Next-Gen Tech Index.
In mid-November Glimpse reported its Q1 fiscal year 2024 financial results. Quarterly revenues were approximately $3.1M, an increase from the previous quarter. Gross margins were about 62%, adjusted EBITDA loss was $1.3M, its cash position was $6.5M and the capital structure remained clean with no debt, no convertible debt and no preferred equity. The company reduced its headcount by 40% and plans further reductions.
Glimpse has been progressing in its strategic shift to Spatial Computing, Cloud and AI driven immersive software solutions with plans to announce significant contracts in the coming months. Future revenues for the second quarter are expected to decline as the company executes its strategic plan, though revenues should be recognized from this shift in the third quarter. Gross margins are expected to remain in the 60-70% range —likely to sit at the higher end of the range, in the second half of the fiscal year.
