Horten, 12 May 2022 - poLight ASA (OSE: PLT) today announced its results for Q1 2022.

Customer-related activities continued at a high level in the first quarter. poLight is actively engaged in several segments.

EBITDA totalled NOK -18.5 million in Q1 2022, compared with NOK -20.2 million in Q1 2021.

As at 31 March 2022 poLight had cash of NOK 150.2 million, compared with NOK 68.4 million as at 31 March 2021.

“We made good progress in many areas during the quarter, although it was somewhat impacted by the challenging situation in China. Progress in the augmented reality cases we are exploring remains promising, and there are candidates for design-wins this year and onwards. With respect to smartphone cases, we see OEMs being more cautious about releasing new phone models, and we foresee this will impact the timing of the first smartphone case for poLight. That said, interest and activity related to TLens® has been, and remains, encouraging.”, said Øyvind Isaksen, the CEO of poLight.
