Net loss of $1.2m (-100.9% y-o-y) better than expected.

  • Gross margins decreased by 4.5ppt, from 31.4% in FY22 to 26.9% in FY23, mainly due to changes in the product mix. Services, which comprise lower margin contract manufacturing, accounted for 60% of FY23 revenue, up from 28% in FY22.
  • Other factors affecting the bottom line were an inventory adjustment of $21.1m and an arbitration settlement of $26.7m.
  • Despite the net loss, we note that AEM fared better than our estimate of -$5-6m due to lower-than-expected SG&A expenses (-31% y-o-y).
