("Spectra7" or the "Company"), a leading provider of high-performance analog semiconductor products for broadband connectivity markets, today announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and re-affirmed its outlook for Q2 2023.

"We are off to a strong start in the first quarter, increasing revenue by 50% year over year, following exceptional growth in 2022. Our gross margin for the quarter increased to 63%. In addition, we continue to advance key relationships across all our end markets, including AR/VR and hyperscale data centers. The hyperscale data center partners and customers are readying 800G and 1.6TB products for expected deployment in the second half of this year, a critical part of the next data center upgrade cycle," 1 said Raouf Halim, Chief Executive Officer.

"Test and qualification activities are increasingly focused on new switches that require 800G and 1.6TB data rate interconnects. These tests continue to demonstrate that Active Copper Cables enabled by Spectra7 are the most power and cost-efficient solutions to meet the requirements for top-of-the-rack and short-run connectivity, an estimated $1 billion market by 2026.2 We expect this process to generate orders from key data center customers in North America in the second half of 2023."1

"Based on these activities and indications that supply availability will improve steadily throughout 2023 and support a return to higher margins, we have established a goal of EBITDA3 profitability by the end of the year,"1 said Mr. Halim.
