Borqs Announces Preliminary Revenue Results for 2022, Achieving over 79% YoY Growth
Borqs Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: BRQS, “Borqs”, or the “Company”), a global provider of 5G wireless, Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, and innovative clean energy, today announced its preliminary revenue for the year ended December 31, 2022.
The company expects total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2022 to be $53-58 million, increased by over 79% compared to $29.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, driven by increased IoT sales globally and revenues from Holu Hou Energy (HHE), our solar energy storage system subsidiary. While the revenue from the IoT business is expected to be more than 80% of the total revenue, the HHE’s revenue has also increased significantly. The company has not yet finalized its financial results for the full year ended December 31, 2022. These preliminary financial results reflect the company’s current estimates, based on information available to management as of the date of this release, and are subject to further changes upon completion of the company’s year-end closing and audit procedures.
As previously announced, the Company is in the process of negotiation with the U.S. government to divest our solar energy storage system subsidiary, Holu Hou Energy (HHE). It is expected the agreement with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”) will be signed in March. HHE is considered a top ten solar energy storage supplier in Hawaii, and has been increasing its market share. The Company intends to divest this subsidiary based on the terms and timing in the agreement to be reached with CFIUS. In the meantime, the Company has been in active discussions with potential investment bankers that will be involved for the divestiture.

Since Borqs’ financial support in HHE starting from October 2021, HHE has signed approximately $50 million in contracts and has a growing pipeline approaching half a billion dollars. We believe this voluntary mitigation will enable the tremendous inherent value of HHE to be realized and that the divestment can be a profitable transaction for Borqs’ shareholders.
“We are overall very pleased with the revenue results of the full year 2022, and proud of the entire Borqs team working together and executing on our business plans in a challenging inflationary macro environment,” said Pat Chan, CEO of Borqs Technologies. “We will keep our shareholders informed with the progress of Holu Hou Energy’s divestiture. The entire Borqs management team is committed to creating shareholder value, and will continue to focus on sustainable long term business initiatives. We expect the divestiture of the HHE business will generate sizable cash and the company will use the cash to acquire companies to increase the company’s shareholder value.”
