Leading Product Portfolio Drives Strong Demand


“We continue to execute our growth plan and see healthy demand for our innovative products and solutions,” said Airspan Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Eric Stonestrom. “Furthermore, we are encouraged by concrete government action on the CHIPS Act, which currently allocates $1.5B for Open RAN technology development, an area of Airspan focus and differentiation. However, the supply chain environment continues to impact sales and margin as seen in the near-term outlook.”


“Four of our largest customers signed new purchase orders during the quarter. We continue to see growing demand in the core markets we serve, namely mobile networks, private networks and fixed wireless,” said Airspan President and Chief Operating Officer Glenn Laxdal.


Business Outlook


We anticipate third quarter 2022 revenue of $42 million to $48 million at a gross margin of 38% to 40%. Both figures continue to be impacted by component availability, related expenses and challenges from COVID-19 restrictions in Asia.
