  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "SQNS negatively pre-announced 3Q17 results, reducing 3Q17 revenue expectations by ~$5MM from the prior mid-point and shaving $0.01 from the upper end of its EPS range due to continued weakness/pricing pressure in emerging markets broadband CPE equipment and an inventory correction in the Verizon Jetpack business. A Vertical Markets deal also slipped to 4Q17. Management expects the Broadband weakness to continue through year-end. While the CAT 1/CAT M IoT outlook remains intact, we are forced to reduce our forward estimates, which in turn will once again raise concerns about the balance sheet and cash burn. While this near-term impact is disappointing, we remain positive on SQNS given the company’s leadership in narrowband LTE." (10/4/2017)
  • 3. B. Riley analysts commented, "We will have more detailed implications for our C17&18 revenue and EPS estimates of $61.3MM(34.4%)/($0.21) and $101.1MM(65.1%)/($0.01) following Wednesday’s call." (10/4/2017)
  • 4.

We believe the certification is consistent with our expectations for ramping CAT-1 IoT related revenue during 2H17, as we estimate $15M of CAT-1 IoT related sales in 2017 increasing to $32M in C2018. This announcement ahead of MWC Americas follows the prior certification of the Calliope chipset on AT&T and other US carriers.
