Akoustis Shows Seventh Consecutive Quarters of Record Revenue with Q4 2023 Results

Akoustis Technologies, Inc. (“Akoustis” or the “Company”), an integrated device manufacturer (IDM) of patented bulk acoustic wave (BAW) high-band RF filters for wireless applications, has announced a 13% year-over-year increase in quarterly revenue to a record $8.3 million for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2023, and record annual sales of $27.1 million, up 77% year-over-year.

With hundreds of active customers, increased activity in the sales and design win pipelines and the semiconductor services business, as well as new product introductions in Wi-Fi 6E and Wi-Fi 75G network infrastructure and the defense market, the Company remains poised for significant growth over the next twenty-four months.

Jeff Shealy, founder and CEO of Akoustis, stated, “Despite the persistent macro challenges, Akoustis was able to deliver its seventh consecutive quarter of record revenue. Our sales growth was driven by multiple factors, including additional 5G mobile shipments to our first tier-1 customer, continued execution in our Wi-Fi business punctuated by the notable entry into the Wi-Fi 7 market, and rebounding sales in both our SAW filter and semiconductor services businesses.”

Akoustis continues to experience strong demand and a growing sales funnel for its XBAW filter solutions, as well as its new XBAW/SAW resonator and oscillator products, and semiconductor back-end services. During the June quarter, the Company shipped samples of its new 5.6 GHz/6.6 GHz Wi-Fi 6E/7 XBAW filter products to multiple customers. Akoustis continues to add new Wi-Fi design wins, many of which are expected to ramp into production in fiscal 2024.
