In commenting on the performance of the company to date, and on its future prospects, Fawad Maqbool, the CEO said “I am very proud of the job our team has done under these extreme circumstances; we have gotten through a very difficult time and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are not exactly sure how long that tunnel is, but we are confident in our ability to generate significant growth for our stakeholders as we emerge from this pandemic. I say this because I have confidence in our team and our existing products, but, even more so, I am very excited about the future products and markets that we are working on in the areas of 5G and quantum computing, where we have made significant progress on our IP and our designs. We have had new and existing customer requests for custom cryogenic products in both Satcom and Nanophysics markets, indicating support for our new products. We have recently updated shareholders on some of these developments and we look forward to updating shareholders further as these we make progress. Lastly, given the interest by the stock market in the industries in which we currently operate and are targeting (Satcom, Wireless, 5G, Quantum Computing etc), we are hopeful that we will be able to complete a financing and uplift to Nasdaq in the near future. Obviously, there is no guarantee that this will happen given the unknowns in the market, the business and the pandemic, but is our goal to push forward this year with a Nasdaq financing as our priority.”
