Odyssey Semiconductor Technologies Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Financial Results


February 26, 2024 5:10 PM EST



Company continues to develop and look for financing and strategic opportunities


ITHACA, NY / ACCESSWIRE / February 26, 2024 / Odyssey Semiconductor Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB:ODII), a semiconductor device company developing innovative high-voltage power switching components based on proprietary Gallium Nitride ("GaN") processing technology, today reported its fourth quarter and full year 2023 results.


CEO Commentary
"We have continued to work on scaling our Vertical GaN technology and developing the manufacturing process to build a larger device that can handle higher current (power is equal to current times voltage). This larger device will enable us to more widely sample to customers. With industry-leading innovation, Odyssey's approach to vertical GaN will offer even greater commercial advantages over silicon, silicon carbide or lateral GaN," said Rick Brown, Chief Executive Officer.


"We are also making progress with foundry services projects. With initial work being completed and providing revenue in Q4 we have booked and are working on additional business for Q1 and Q2. This has also led to some rebalancing of resource deployment between internal product development and externally focused foundry service projects. We are also continuing to review strategic opportunities to address longer term financing needs," continued Brown.


We are continuing to take product sample requests. Customers can request information and samples of the 650 and 1200 volt vertical GaN power devices at info@odysseysemi.com.


Significant Recent Advancements and Milestones


Odyssey Uniquely Positioned in High Growth Megatrend Movement to High Voltage in 2027 in Odyssey's Addressable Market
Odyssey's approach to vertical GaN will offer even greater commercial advantages over silicon than silicon carbide or lateral GaN. Vertical GaN offers a 10x advantage over silicon carbide (SiC) at performance and cost levels unattainable by the competing technologies.


The market the Company is pursuing is large and fast-growing. The 650-volt segment is the larger market today, expected to continue to grow. The 1200-volt product market segment is expected to grow faster and will become the larger market in the second half of this decade. Together, the 650 and 1200-volt power device market is expected to exceed $5 billion in 2027, a 40% combined CAGR according to Yole Group, a French market research firm.




Other Corporate Actions:
The Chairman of the Board, Mr. Edmunds, has continued to finance the company's operations through monthly promissory notes - one in January and one in February - each for $ 190,000. Mr. Edmunds will likely not continue to fund the Company's operations in the future and the Company is reviewing options to continue development of its technology. The Board has recently engaged in various strategic discussions with third parties and it has become apparent that the "know how developed by the two founders" is one of the company's most valuable assets. The Board discussed incentives that might be provided to ensure the two founders stay with the company and entertain the possibility of potentially working for one of the interested parties in the future as part of a strategic transaction. With sensitivity to both the amount of debt outstanding and to avoid dilution, Mr. Edmunds offered and the Board has approved, to have approximately 14.5% of his outstanding debt previously issued to fund operations or approximately $632,800 in principal value cancelled and reissued under the same terms and maturity to be split evenly in favor of each of the two founders. This will give them both a debt and equity interest in the outcome of any strategic deal similar to Mr. Edmunds. In addition, Mr. Edmunds has elected to convert one of his $ 180,000 promissory notes to stock at $0.10 per share resulting in an additional 1.8M Common shares being issued. This will increase his shareholdings to approximately 13.4%.


Conference Call and Webcast: Q4 and Full Year 2023 Results
The Company will not be holding a conference call - investors may contact Rick Brown, the CEO and co-founder, if they have questions.
