Siyata Mobile Inc. (Nasdaq: SYTA, SYTAW) (“Siyata” or the “Company”), a global vendor of Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) devices and cellular signal booster systems, announced its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2023.

“Year-to-date, we have grown our revenue by 45% compared to the same period last year on increasing sales of our mission-critical, Push-to-Talk Over Cellular (PoC) solution,” said Marc Seelenfreund, CEO of Siyata. “Demand for reliable, high-quality communication solutions is strong, and we are well positioned with an expanding reseller network and partnerships with Tier-1 cellular providers to capture additional market share. During the third quarter, we experienced slight order delays as we transitioned from non-stocked to stocked status with a large U.S. wireless carrier, which resulted in lower sales. Importantly, we believe this was a temporary decline isolated to the third quarter as recent orders indicate fourth quarter sales are off to a solid start. Looking ahead, the size and quality of our new business pipeline reinforces our optimism for future growth.”

Key financial highlights for the three months ended September 30, 2023:

  • Revenues were $1.8 million compared to $2.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022. This decrease of $726,000, or 28.3%, was due mainly to the decrease in the sale of rugged devices partially offset by an increase in sales of boosters.
  • Gross profit of $490,000, or 26.6% of revenues, compared to $856,000, or 33.3% of revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The decrease in gross profit dollars and margin was mainly due to the decrease in sales of rugged and in-vehicle cellular devices at higher margins compared to the margins sold on legacy rugged devices.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was ($1.57) million compared to ($1.58) million in the same period in the prior year. (See reconciliation with IFRS below).

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2023, the Company had a cash balance of $366,000 and working capital of $3.8 million compared to $1.9 million and $1.6 million, respectively, as of December 31, 2022.

Subsequent to quarter end, the Company issued 1.87 million common shares and 530,000 pre-funded warrants at a public price of $0.65 per share and $0.64 per pre-funded warrant for gross proceeds of $1.6 million.
