Smart Wires Technology Ltd. (NASDAQ 1st North: GOGRID-SDB.ST), a global power technology company that is advancing the delivery of affordable, clean electricity worldwide today announced its fourth quarter and 2021 full-year revenue results and issued 2022 revenue guidance.
Fourth Quarter and 2021 Revenue
Preliminary, unaudited fourth quarter 2021 revenue is expected to be approximately $19.2 million compared to $8.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Revenue growth was driven by delivery of SmartValveTM projects, with improved supply chain management and manufacturing output.
Full-year 2021 preliminary, unaudited revenue is expected to be approximately $47.5 million compared to $15.4 million for the full-year 2020. This exceeds the previously provided revenue guidance of $38 million to $42 million as production and delivery supply chain recovery out-performed expectations leading to higher-than-expected deliveries of Smart ValveTM devices in Q4 2021. This 3x revenue growth was driven by continued SmartValveTM technology adoption by new and existing customers in key markets across the globe.
“I am pleased with the progress the Smart Wires team made during 2021 in expanding our global footprint and impact. Achieving revenue growth of greater than three times 2020 during a time of global supply chain challenges and uncertainties, is a significant achievement for the team,” said Peter Wells, Smart Wires CEO.
“We will continue to push forward with platform adoption of our technology through grid modernization and system reinforcement programs around the world. I am looking forward to the greater uptake of SmartValve and other grid enhancing technologies on global grids, and the positive impact we will have on accelerating energy transition,” he said.
Smart Wires continues to monitor global energy policies and market design, its current backlog, deal flow, and global technology adoption and supply chain challenges, assessing their combined impact on the business. Taking these factors into consideration, Smart Wires is providing revenue guidance in the range of $65 million to $70 million for the full-year 2022. The company will provide further updates throughout the year.
