In advance of Certification, Energous completed identified tests to demonstrate compliance with FCC rules for the first substantial power-at-a-distance transmitter, anticipates formal certification before the forecasted release of products utilizing Energous’ Mid Field transmitter technology by the end of 2017

Received additional $15 Million investment from strategic component supplier, Dialog Semiconductor

"This quarter, Energous marked a major milestone in its advancement towards commercialization: the company’s first orders for WattUp chipsets. Further towards that goal, we completed previously identified tests for FCC certification for our Mid Field transmitter, and increased the number of active international customer engagements. We are driving an increasing number of customers to the final stages of WattUp integration, and we continue to expect consumer availability of these products later this year," said Stephen R. Rizzone, president and CEO. "Due to the broad appeal of truly wire-free charging and our significant company progress, we are seeing increasing interest from multiple potential partners and customers for our technology, and we are driving the global advancement of the ecosystem through conversations and demonstrations with regulators, partners and customers."

Note about Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the unaudited results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, in this press release, Energous presents adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is determined by taking net loss and eliminating the impacts of interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation. The company’s definition of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to the definitions of similarly-titled measures used by other companies. Energous believes that this non-GAAP financial measure, viewed in addition to and not in lieu of its reported GAAP results, provides useful information to investors by providing a more focused measure of operating results. This metric is used as part of the company’s internal reporting to evaluate its operations and the performance of senior management. A table reconciling this measure to the comparable GAAP measure is available in the accompanying financial tables below.
