WISeKey Announces Strong Q1 2021 Unaudited Revenues WISeKey expects 2021 to be a year of strong operational and financial performance Zug, Switzerland, May 10, 2021 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey” or “Company”) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity and IoT company, announced today Q1 2021 unaudited revenues of $4.7 million, an increase of more than 7%, from the same period of last year (of note, Q1 2021 revenue number includes revenues generated from arago; WISeKey acquired 51% controlling interest on February 1, 2021). Furthermore, WISeKey ended the quarter with a strong financial position of $23 million cash and restricted cash, at March 31, 2021. “COVID-19 pandemic affected every company in the technology sector making 2020 a challenging year. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we took steps to quickly manage our business, strengthen of our balance sheet, and we were able to re-position ourselves, efficiently manage our supply chain and manufacturing process to continue on-time deliveries. Thus Q1 2021 was a very strong quarter, as compared to a pre-COVID Q1 2020, followed by a similar strong performance during the month of April. We are now in a very strong position to handle the increased demand from our clients. Our backlog at the end of April, not including arago, increased by more than 155%, as compared to the same period of last year, and was higher than our revenues for full year 2020. The higher demand, increased backlog and several new customers are now positively impacting revenues and the Company’s forecast for 2021. In addition to the positive growth from the core WISeKey business, the recent acquisition of arago is expected to further improve our operational performance for 2021,” commented Carlos Moreira, CEO of WISeKey. “I could not be more pleased with our progress made since the beginning of the year. We expect strong demand for our cybersecurity products during 2021 calendar year and sustained revenue derived from the increase in demand for our technology. It is anticipated that Cybersecurity companies like WISeKey with strong technology-IP assets will recover much faster from the current crisis. Overall, continued adoption of IoT technologies connected to secure clouds, and ultimately 5G, will be tremendous catalysts for security companies given the related risk of adoption,” concluded Mr. Moreira.Our strong financial position $23 million cash and restricted cash at the end of Q1 2021 allows us to support investments in new products, IP, and faster growing IoT/Cybersecurity markets. During 2020, we have made significant investments in R&D and new microchips design in order to maintain our leading-edge technology position and the competitive advantage of our product offerings. We recently developed NanoSealRT, an NFC Forum Type 5 chip that works with both Android and IOS 12 (and above) devices, which will further reinforce our position as a major IoT player. During Q1 2021 WISeKey made a strategic investment in FOSSA Systems allowing their satellite technology to integrate into the WISeKey IoT platform connecting all IoT sectors through the development of a WISeSaT PocketQube Satellite. The WISeSaT.Satellite will be a security-IoT hardened FOSSASAT-2E satellite designed to further drive down satellite costs for the already-small Cubesat size.WISeKey will offer this technology to its IoT clients in a SaaS model allowing both remote and redundant urban IoT communications for companies seeking to securely connect their assets. WISeKey Trust and Security solutions offer unique integration into an end-to-end platform that communicates in real-time with the WISeSat.Satellite by ensuring the authenticity, confidentiality, and integrity of the devices, objects, data and transactions. Finally, after the successful deployment of several NFT Luxury watch projects, WISeKey is developing one of the most reliable and secure blockchains for businesses, in a strategic partnership to bring trust to the hype around NFT with the launch of TrustedNFT.io.

#bettersportsbetting launches today to amplify voices of stakeholder supportTORONTO, May 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian Gaming Association (CGA) urges the Senate to continue to deal with Bill C-218 as expediently as possible given the groundswell of stakeholder support and Canada’s lack of safe regulated sports betting options when it comes to single-event sports betting. While Canada’s casino gaming industry has been mostly closed for more than a year, Canadians have still been able to access unregulated sports betting websites with zero economic or employment benefits going to the provinces. The CGA is today launching #bettersportsbetting, a campaign aimed at amplifying the voices of Canadian sports fans that want to speak up in favour of the change. They will join the growing number of organizations that have asked the Federal government to pass the Safe and Regulated Sports Betting Act. Broad stakeholder support exists for the amendment to Canada’s Criminal Code to legalize single-event sports betting. In addition to a vote of 303-15 in the House of Commons, the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights heard from Zane Hansen, President & CEO of the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA), Jerry Dias, National President, UNIFOR, Shelley White, CEO, Responsible Gambling Council, Paul Melia, President & CEO, Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, and David Shoemaker, CEO and Secretary General, Canadian Olympic Committee. “Bill C-218 will provide provinces with the authority to deliver a safe, legal, and regulated sports betting option to Canadians and empower them to enact strong regulatory standards on responsible gambling, age and identity verification to ensure minors cannot participate, and controls to prevent match fixing and protect the integrity of sport,” said Paul Burns, President & CEO of the CGA. We are close to making Bill C-218 a reality and allowing provinces and stakeholders to provide #bettersportsbetting. We thank the Senators for the serious attention they are giving this matter, and we look forward to getting the Bill across the finish line together! Visit bettersportsbetting.ca to learn more.
