Shareholder update

The Company dealt with the challenge of the need to conduct cost cuts mainly attributable to the temporary weakness in the market conditions combined with the need to maintain and improve its position in the huge markets it is involved with to support future growth and profitability. So far, management has taken, and is still taking, aggressive measures reducing annual SG&A costs by $4.7M and working on further measures to achieve profitability as soon as practically possible. Ultimately, we plan to prioritize timely and cost-effective development and business with the highest margins, while continuing cost reductions.

One challenge is that we are experiencing a working capital deficit of $45 million and an accumulated deficit of $114 million. We have also seen a year-over-year decrease in sales and a reduction of goodwill. To mitigate this, we have placed a strategic focus on increasing sales with prime customers. No customer accounted for more than 10% of the revenues in 2023 vs year end 2022 when one customer accounted for 30% of the Company’s revenues. Additionally, our sales efforts are focused on the most profitable product lines.

To ensure we have sufficient working capital, in October 2023, management finalized an equity raise which resulted in $2.5 million in net cash received from investors. Management also finalized a new line of credit with a new financial institution.

“In navigating through the complex landscape shaped by global and market events, it has provided us with a valuable opportunity to reflect deeply on our core operations and values. It’s like looking in a mirror, not to critique what we see with harshness, but to understand where our strengths lie and where we need to evolve. These insights are now guiding us toward making significant, forward-thinking changes. We are not just addressing the immediate issues at hand; we are laying down the foundation for a healthier, more robust future for our company. This period of transformation, though demanding, is an investment in our collective future, ensuring we emerge not just intact but stronger and more aligned with our mission than ever before.” – Shai Lustgarten, CEO
