The wait for Weebit Nano’s first revenue is over as a massive milestone is achieved!

Investors waiting for Weebit Nano’s (ASX:WBT) first revenue need not wait any longer! The ASX‘s most advanced semiconductor developer just announced that it has achieved this milestone.

 

Weebit Nano’s first revenue

WBTis following a licensing model for its ReRAM technology, based on royalties on sales, a figure which could be 1.5-3%, based on industry standards. 

To illustrate how this might work, let’s assume a foundry can make a chip using WBT’s technology that costs US$10 per unit and WBT receives a 3% royalty on all sales of chips that use its technology. If the foundry sells 1m of these chips and generates US$10m in sales, WBT would receive US$300,000 from this customer for this product.  

Weebit Nano received an initial licensing fee of US$100,000. While this initial revenue is small, it is an important milestone nonetheless – marking the company’s transition to commercialisation. It is a ‘pre-revenue’ company no longer. And more of these license fees will follow in the future.

 

Onwards and upwards for 2024

Despite the difficult year in the equity markets, it has been a year of progress for Weebit Nano and we think it has shown in the fact that shares are up over 40% in the last 12 months, even after having come down from the approximate $9 peak in March 2023.

Most importantly, the company commercialised its ReRAM technology with SkyWater (hence, its inaugural revenue) and signed on a second top tier fab as a partner in South Korean headquartered DB HiTek.

We believe, there is a lot more for investors to look forward to in the months ahead, including more partnerships with top tier fabs and more revenues.
