Q1 2023 Highlights
- Q1 2023 revenue of $4.1 million, with gross profits of $1.8M (44%).
- Company maintained a healthy gross profit margin of approximately 44% amidst inflationary pressures.
- Core LNA sales continue to grow, while our semiconductor distribution sales decreased due to softer international demand.
- Company reported loss of $619,000 for Q1 2023, attributable largely to a combination of corporate expenses, our continuing R&D efforts in development of new products, and a temporary downturn in sales within our Spectrum Division.
- As of March 31, 2023, cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities totaled $10.6M and working capital was $18M, giving AmpliTech ample capital to finance all of its strategic growth initiatives.
- With our AGMDC division completing design releases and ready to manufacture MMIC products, an intense marketing campaign has started in Q2, with expected bookings to occur during Q2 and shipments of MMIC related products expected to contribute to sales in Q3 2023.
- By successfully utilizing our CRM engine, implementing AI-powered sales prospecting techniques, and leveraging increased attendance at our trade shows, we achieved a remarkable 70% surge in Request for Quotes (RFQs) for our exceptional low noise amplifier and 5G systems.
- Our CRM currently has $66M in the opportunity funnel, some of which the company expects will turn into sales over the next Q3 and Q4 quarters.
- We will participate as a gold sponsor at IMS 2023, where we eagerly anticipate connecting with some of the 10,000+ attendees and engaging in discussions about how our products can add value to their 5G, quantum, satcom, and airline Wi-Fi communications systems.
CEO Fawad Maqbool provided his insights on AmpliTech’s financial results and future outlook:
"Despite current economic challenges, our commitment to innovation and quality remains resolute as we continue working to achieve our mission to develop full systems and subsystems for rapidly emerging technology sectors, utilizing AmpliTech’s unique core technology.
Our team has been working relentlessly to develop the lowest noise, lowest power-dissipating amplifiers on the market and these are included in our new 5G and wireless infrastructure products and MMIC designs for the satellite, wireless and 5G markets, including the advanced military and commercial markets. We have also recently expanded into the design of full-service, true5G Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) front ends. These offerings are cutting-edge, end-to-end solutionsand also backwards compatible and retrofittable with existing obsolete 3G, and 4G systems.
We’re excited to be bringing these products to market at a time that the 5G infrastructure market is projected to reach $99 billion by 2030, a CAGR of 37% from current levels, according to Precedence Research. This tremendous growth outlook reaffirms our belief in the significant potential of our product line to serve this market. Despite weakening economic trends and the expected 11% decline in the semiconductor market for 2023, as reported by Gartner, we remain optimistic about semiconductors, which are integral to modern technology, and why we have invested heavily in our AGMDC semiconductor division in Texas.We anticipate that global demand will bounce back as market conditions improve.
The second quarter launch of the MMIC line under the AmpliTech Inc. division, coupled with our recent distribution deal with NGK, are important developments that are expected to drive future growth, in addition to our diversified portfolio, strategic investments, and the unwavering commitment of our team. With this strong foundation in place, we remain confident in our ability to empower the communication systems of tomorrow, today,” concluded Mr. Maqbool.
