Full Interview:

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions about WiSA Technologies. Can you briefly describe the company and its focus for our readers who may be unfamiliar?

WiSA develops wireless audio technology and IP to bring immersive audio to home and establishes the interoperable connectivity standard for our IP. With WiSA certified products, consumers can easily set up a home entertainment system that uses Dolby Atmos’ immersive audio and fills up the room while watching movies, shows, sports or gaming.

What is WISA’s unique value proposition in the wireless audio industry, and how does it set itself apart from the competition?

First, we believe that we have best in class wireless performance levels. Many premium audio brands like Bang and Olufsen, Harman, Klipsch, KEF use our technology. Second, our WiSA HT standard is the only interoperable standard in the market so that different branded products will work with each other.

How has the market for wireless audio solutions evolved over the past few years, and what growth opportunities does WiSA Technologies see in this market?

The industry is in a period of rapid innovation. For years, Bluetooth was the primary wireless audio solution which suffered from poor latency, poor speaker synchronization, and limited channels of audio. With more powerful Wi-Fi chips coming onto the market, we are able to deliver better performance than BT at affordable prices.

We see the growth opportunities centering around the TV/Soundbar with wireless communication to speakers located around the room.

What partnerships or collaborations has the company established with other companies or industry organizations, and how do these partnerships support the company's growth strategy?

We have technology partners like Realtek and Espresiff that make Wi-Fi chips, TV partners like LG and Hisense that have certified their TVs with WiSA for use with WiSA’s SoundSend, and retail partners that have created WiSA stores on their websites and finally, we have our customers that have WiSA certified speakers: Bang and Olufsen, Harman, Klipsch, KEF.

Are there any exciting milestones investors can look forward to in the near future?

Yes, we expect to release our WiSA technology to production in Q3.

What challenges is WISA facing, if any?

We have overcome most of the technical milestones that we set out to achieve which leads to driving the sales/adoption curve.

What is your perspective on the total addressable market for WISA’s technology now and in the future?

Across all segments, we believe the TAM is ~1B units.

Is there any other information you wish to share with our investors reading so we can highlight the opportunity of WISA?

We believe our new technology launch, with its lower price points and high performance, combined with our industry leading standard organization are a powerful combination to drive the company’s success.
