GOLETA, Calif.— November 9, 2022—Transphorm, Inc. (NASDAQ: TGAN)—a pioneer in and global supplier of high-reliability, high-performance gallium nitride (GaN) power conversion products, announced today financial results for its 2023 fiscal second quarter ended September 30, 2022.

Fiscal 2023 Second Quarter and Recent Highlights
(All comparisons are to the second quarter of fiscal 2022, unless otherwise noted.)

  • Revenue of $3.7 million, compared to revenue of $11.3 million in the prior year, which included one-time licensing revenue of $8.0 million. Excluding the one-time licensing revenue, revenue was up 11% on a year-over-year basis.
  • Product revenue was up 38% compared to the same period in fiscal 2022.
  • Improved supply from Japan Epi reactors and completed acquisition of additional MOCVD reactors.
  • Increased shipments on previously announced Fortune 100 laptop adapter win, a top 3 world-wide laptop manufacturer, and secured new Fortune 100 laptop adapter design-win.
  • Strengthened senior operations, sales and marketing teams with the addition of seasoned industry leaders.
  • Secured ARPA-E program to innovate on Transphorm’s unique bi-directional GaN technology that replaces 2-4 silicon devices with a single FQS GaN in applications like microinverters and motor drives.
  • Secured approval for Shenzhen, China WFOE (Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise) to enhance local customer support, sales, field applications and marketing.
  • Expanded package offerings by adding Industry Standard PQFN products, which enable pin-to-pin with multiple sources. This complements Transphorm’s existing High Performance PQFN products, both validated to deliver superior results versus competing GaN.

Transphorm President, COO, and co-founder, Primit Parikh, commented, “We continue to maintain our leadership position in high power GaN which comprised over 65% of our fiscal Q2 revenue, while winning marquee new designs in fast chargers and adapters, enabled by superior and easy to interface SuperGaN® FETs. We are also executing on our stated plan of increasing capacity, with notable improvements from our Japan Epi reactors, giving us confidence we can better address demand.“

Mr. Parikh added, “We exceeded our fiscal Q2 revenue target and remain well-positioned to resume revenue growth of 20% sequentially in fiscal Q3, with the opportunity to achieve 25%, despite persistent macroeconomic headwinds. We continue to aggressively pursue new customer wins and are fulfilling our existing backlog, while managing both internal and external supply chain constraints. With our wide range of product offerings and notably high power GaN, we continue to be well-positioned for growth across multiple market segments – including consumer, data centers, blockchain, and industrial. We also continue to pursue near-term opportunities in two-wheel and three-wheel EVs and longer-term opportunities in the automotive EV market.”

“This quarter saw solid execution and lower operational burn despite reduced revenue. The Company remains well-positioned with a solid balance sheet to continue to invest in staffing and capital equipment to realize its short and long-term objectives”, stated Cameron McAulay, Chief Financial Officer.
