LONDON, United Kingdom and TORONTO, Ontario, Canada – Alphawave IP Group plc (LSE: AWE, “Alphawave”, the “Company”), today will host its inaugural Capital Markets Day for investors and financial analysts in London. At the event, the management team will present the Company’s long-term business strategy and financial targets as it enters the next stage of technology leadership in connectivity for digital infrastructure markets. The company also announced a rebrand of its corporate identity, including a new logo, updated visual brand elements, and a new company brand: Alphawave Semi.
Following a period of investment into the expansion of the team and capabilities in alignment with the goals outlined during the Company’s IPO in 2021, Alphawave plans to create long-term shareholder value by:
- Extending and expanding its technology leadership in connectivity silicon technology;
- Transforming into a vertically integrated semiconductor company by further monetising its IP through business opportunities in custom silicon and other connectivity products;
- Addressing more of the customer’s connectivity needs in high-growth digital infrastructure markets, including data centers. Alphawave estimates its addressable market will grow at 20% CAGR over the period 2023-2026; and
- Maintaining a disciplined capital allocation and a strong focus on improving operational efficiency over the next two years.
Despite the uncertain macroeconomic environment, our growing pipeline reflects positive secular growth trends in data infrastructure markets and the continued investment in next generation connectivity solutions. This combined with our talented team and strong balance sheet gives us confidence in our future.
For the full year 2023, Alphawave expects to maintain its high-growth trajectory while completing the integration of the recent acquisitions. The Company expects for the FY 2023:
- Revenue within a range of US$340m to US$360m
- Adjusted EBITDA of approximately US$87m at the mid-point of the revenue guidance range, representing an adjusted EBITDA margin of c.25%

- Revenue CAGR in line with its addressable market of approximately 20%, representing approximately US$500m revenue run rate by 2025
- Gross margin of c.60%
- Adjusted operating expenses as a percentage of revenue of c.30%
- Adjusted EBITDA margin of c.30%, representing approximately US$150m adjusted EBITDA1
