Eguana maintained deliveries into Hawaii as planned, which resulted in a first half revenue increase of 400%.

Product margins for the Evolve product line continue to track upwards as compared to 2017, hitting 15% through the first half of the year.

The Company is currently launching products in Australia, Europe, and the United States and as a result will rapidly expand its distribution coverage in key global markets. All products will be on display at the Munich Intersolar show in June.

“With fully integrated product solutions, including the energy management system (EMS), currently launching in multiple markets with multiple channels we expect to see significant revenue growth in North America and international markets across the balance of the 2018,” commented Justin Holland, Chief Executive Officer of Eguana Technologies. “The development team has done a tremendous job designing and certifying a suite of products that are installer friendly, have advanced features, are easily aggregated for fleet management and grid services applications and importantly, available globally.”

With current sales projections and planned cash sources the Company confirmed it has sufficient resources to finance the business well into 2019 without a new equity issuance.
