The Company’s product revenue for the fourth quarter is expected to be in the range of $7.6 million to $7.8 million, representing a 9% to 11% increase from the fourth quarter of 2021, and a 9% to 11% sequential increase from the third quarter of 2022.

“We expect to end the year with a positive fourth-quarter book-to-bill ratio on strong fourth-quarter bookings that exceeded $7.8 million, positioning us well for the year ahead,” said eMagin CEO Andrew G. Sculley. “Highlights included a $1.6 million order for a military aviation program and a $1.0 million order from an eye care customer. These orders contributed to a total year-end backlog of open orders of $16.7 million, 89% of which is shippable during 2023.”
“Our fourth-quarter growth reflects a continuation of our upward trend in manufacturing yields, production throughput, and overall operating effectiveness,” said eMagin CFO Mark Koch. “Moreover, Q4 2022 was the fifth consecutive quarter in which eMagin achieved year-over-year growth in product revenues and achieved quarterly product revenue levels exceeding $7 million.”
As of December 31, 2022, the Company’s backlog of open orders scheduled for delivery over the next 12 months was approximately $14.8 million, an increase of 7% from the 2021 year-end backlog of $13.8 million.
