  • Orders for 344 drones with a total value of approximately $5.2 million placed by a U.S. federal government agency

  • Remote ID certification received from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

  • Teal 2 sUAS Now Available for Purchase Through US Government’s GSA Advantage

  • Received Order for 200 Long-Range, High-Speed Drones for Ukrainian Deployment

  • Partnering with Doodle Labs as wireless networking provider for U.S. Army’s Short Range Reconnaissance program

First Quarter 2024 Financial Highlights:

  • Consumer Segment reported as Discontinued Operations as sale to Unusual Machines (“UM”) expected to close in fiscal second quarter for immediate cash proceeds of $3 million and approximately $21 million in UM stock, including working capital adjustments

  • Strong quarterly revenues for the Consumer segment provide value potential for shares of UM stock to be received from the sale

  • Record quarterly revenues for Enterprise segment as sales pipeline matures with an additional $6 million in booked orders to be shipped over the balance of Fiscal 2024

  • More than 70% of Enterprise revenues generated from sales to U.S. government agencies

  • Inventory related balances of more than $11 million at July 31, 2023 require $3 million to complete the manufacturing of approximately 1,200 drones representing $18 million in revenues when shipped

“Since its official launch at the end of April, the Teal 2 generated more than $2 million of sales in its first quarter of availability.  In addition, its current backlog of $6 million is expected to increase throughout our Fiscal 2024, especially as government agencies seek to spend their budgetary allowances before they expire,” stated Jeffrey Thompson, President and CEO.  “This was a record sales quarter for the Enterprise segment and we expect the next two fiscal quarters to report even higher record sales levels. We are providing revenue guidance for our Enterprise segment of $3 million for our second fiscal quarter and $5 million for our third fiscal quarter.”

“We look forward to closing the sale of the Consumer segment so that we can focus exclusively on the long-term opportunities that are rapidly emerging for the Enterprise segment, as evidenced by the repeat orders from the Border Patrol,” stated Joseph Hernon, Chief Financial Officer. “We purposely built higher than normal inventory levels to address the supply chain issues that existed during the Covid crisis. With our manufacturing facility completed and operating efficiently, we plan to spend an additional $3 million to convert our existing inventory into approximately 1,200 drones, representing more than $18 million in future revenues.”
