LONDON, United Kingdom and TORONTO, Canada June 14, 2021 – Alphawave IP (LN:AWE or “the Group”), a global leader in high-speed connectivity for the world’s technology infrastructure, today publishes a Trading Update on its performance for H1 2021. The Group is pleased to announce that total bookings year to date have exceeded $190 million ($15 million of estimated royalties) which is the Group’s strongest-ever first half performance.  This follows a record $82 million of bookings in Q1 2021 and bookings of $75 million in FY2021 (of which $8 million and $23 million, respectively, are estimated royalties).

Tony Pialis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alphawave IP said:

“I am pleased that we have delivered another record quarter of bookings in 2021 driven by several strategic design wins with new and existing Tier 1 North American customers in 5G wireless communication products for our core IP and product IP offerings. In addition, Alphawave IP was selected by one of the largest hyperscaler companies in the world to provide its solutions. The team has done a great job continuing to execute on our business goals while successfully completing our IPO on the London Stock Exchange in May and raising $500m in proceeds to fund the group’s continued growth and global expansion.”

John Lofton Holt, Executive Chairman of Alphawave IP commented:

“We are very pleased to share our successes so far this year, and to deliver on the promises that we made to the market and to our investors earlier this year.  The Group is continuing to scale and grow rapidly as it solves the most difficult connectivity challenges for the most technically sophisticated companies in the world.”

The Group also executed all definitive agreements for the China Product Partnership (CPP), which is expected to contribute to subscription licensing revenues starting in H2 2021.   The new bookings will underpin revenue growth in this financial year and beyond, and thus further supports management’s confidence in the current short and medium term guidance.
