"After a record year in 2023, we have started 2024 with a stable quarter, improving EBITDA approx. 35% YoY," said Anders Storm, Group CEO of Sivers Semiconductors. "This temporary slowdown in growth is expected, as we gather strength for continued expansion in the second half of 2024 and beyond. The four new important deals we won during the quarter, totalling approximately SEK 100 million, are a testament to our strong pipeline and future growth potential."

Sivers Semiconductors continues to make significant strides in the SATCOM, 5G, and AI Photonics sectors. The company's participation in industry events such as OFC and MWC has garnered substantial interest in its products, leading to fruitful meetings and potential collaborations with key customers.

The company has also secured additional liquidity of approximately SEK 80 million through loans and convertibles, resulting in a total of SEK 78 million in cash and remaining unused loan facilities at the end of the period.

"We are confident in our ability to continue our growth journey, with an average historical growth rate of more than 40% over the last 7 years Sivers will further grow over the coming 3 years," added Storm. "We expect accelerating growth again during second half of the year and further growth during the second part of the next three-year period, as volume production drives our organic growth and increases the share of product sales vs NRE from today's approximately 30% product sales to over 80% by the end of the period 2026."
