“The WiSA Wave marketing program continues to drive website traffic. In Q1 2021, we exceeded our guidance with 139,000 visitors, up from 34,000 in Q1 2020. We continue to expect more than 1 million visitors in 2021. To that end, we strengthened our board and digital marketing capabilities, welcoming our new director who will be advising the company in building the consumer category with the WiSA Wave. Further, we expect to open the WiSA Amazon store soon, which will allow all WiSA Certified products being sold on Amazon to be highlighted in the category as well as enable bundling promotions with WiSA Ready TVs, transmitters, and speakers. This traction fuels our belief that 2021 will be a breakout year for Summit Wireless.”Brett Moyer, CEO
