Edgewater Wireless Announces First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

OTTAWA, September 26, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (TSXV: YFI) (OTC: KPIFF), the industry leader in Wi-Fi Spectrum Slicing technology for residential and enterprise markets, is pleased to announce its financial and operational results for the First Quarter ending July 31, 2022, which are available on SEDAR (www.SEDAR.com).

"We’re energized by the resumption of in-person customer engagements in Europe with the major Tier 1 and selected OEMs. Discussions moved beyond technical validation to commercial and implementation in nature," said Andrew Skafel, President and CEO of Edgewater Wireless. "We continue to strengthen our product offering by beginning to build a robust technology transfer program geared to accelerate growth via licensing of our groundbreaking Spectrum Slicing approach to major semiconductor players."

Q1 FY 2023 Accomplishments:

  • With the lifting of COVID restrictions in many parts of the globe, in-person customer engagements in Europe resumed and provided substantive opportunities to strengthen relationships. Discussions with the major Tier 1 service provider and multiple OEMs shifted from technical due diligence and analysis to implementation and commercial in nature.

  • Multiple engagements highlighted the significant challenges the new 6GHz Wi-Fi band introduced. The limited spacing between the 5 and 6 GHz bands results in interference and requires multiple expensive filters to maintain a baseline level of performance. Edgewater’s patented interference mitigation techniques could significantly reduce the implementation for equipment manufacturers by eliminating the need for costly filters on each antenna.

  • Retained Dr. Nima Ahmadvand (ex-MOSAID Technologies Inc.) to explore paths to Intellectual Property monetization, including IP licensing, enforcement and building a robust technology transfer program.

Q1 FY 2023 Operating Results:

  • Edgewater is a development stage company, and revenues for Q1 FY 2023 were nil.

  • Net loss for Q1 FY 2023 was $181,160 compared to a net loss of $286,445 for Q1 FY 2022.
