August 16, 2021 GMT

GOLETA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 16, 2021--

Transphorm, Inc. (OTCQX: TGAN)—a pioneer in and global supplier of high reliability, high performance gallium nitride (GaN) power conversion products, today announced financial results for the company’s fiscal first quarter of 2022 ended June 30, 2021.

This compares to revenue of $2.4 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2021 ended March 31, 2021 and $6.3 million (included $5.0 million of licensing revenue) in the fiscal first quarter of 2021 ended June 30, 2020.

“We achieved another consecutive quarter of strong sequential growth and record product revenue,” commented Primit Parikh, Transphorm’s President and Co-founder. “We more than doubled shipments of Transphorm’s GaN power devices for the third consecutive quarter to fulfill growing customer demand in the consumer adapter and high-power markets. Additionally, we recently completed the planned transition of our AFSW wafer-fab into a new JV with a strong strategic-financial partner that shares our goals of accelerating GaN adoption. Looking ahead, our team remains focused on expanding capacity over the coming quarters, as we continue to secure and ramp a growing pipeline of design wins.”

“Along with the strong operating performance, the company remains committed to its previously communicated ambition to uplist on the NASDAQ later in the calendar year,” said Mario Rivas, Transphorm’s CEO. “In July, we were also excited to strengthen our Board, with the addition of Ms. Kelly Smales as an independent director, with an extensive semiconductor finance background.”
