WiSA Technologies, Inc. Regains Compliance with Nasdaq Stockholders’ Equity Requirement

Company thus far has signed its fifth WiSA E Licensing Deal and Continues to Expand Presence in the $296 Billion Wireless Audio Market

BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WiSA Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: WISA), announced today that it has received formal written notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) that the Company has regained compliance with the minimum stockholders' equity requirement as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) (the “Equity Rule”).

This confirmation follows the Company’s successful efforts to improve its balance sheet by completing new equity raises while reducing outstanding liabilities. As a result, WiSA Technologies now meets Nasdaq’s stockholders' equity minimum requirement of at least $2.5 million.

Brett Moyer, CEO of WiSA Technologies said, "We are pleased to receive Nasdaq’s notification confirming WiSA’s regained compliance with the minimum stockholders’ equity requirement. Over the past few months, we have made significant strides in improving our balance sheet and expanding our business. In March 2024, we amended certain of our outstanding warrants to remove select provisions following our April 12, 2024 reverse stock split, including certain exercise price reset, right to reprice and share adjustment features, thereby increasing our stockholders' equity by approximately $4.5 million. Between April and May 2024, we raised approximately $9.2 million in net proceeds from securities offerings. We remain committed to ensuring our listing compliance and creating long-term shareholder value."

As part of the compliance confirmation, WiSA Technologies will be subject to a mandatory panel monitor for a year from the date of the letter received on July 3, 2024. If, during that time, the Company falls out of compliance with the Equity Rule, Nasdaq will issue a non-compliance letter, and the Company will be required to request a new hearing on the matter.

The Company also reported that WiSA E has gained momentum with the signing of its fifth licensing deal and sees increased demand for its disruptive proprietary audio technology benefitting its manufacturing partners and end-users. According to Grand View Research, the wireless audio device market was valued at $107.92 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.5% from 2023 to 2030, surpassing $296 billion.
