Mr. Whelan added, “We expect to accelerate the evolution of our operating platform after the successful and transformative sale of Microlab, and we will operate and report our business as two segments, T&M and RBS. We are also reorganizing our leadership team around these two segments to best capitalize on exciting market trends. Alfred Rodriguez, the Company’s Chief Revenue Officer, will lead our RBS business as General Manager and Senior Vice President. Dan Monopoli, currently the Company’s Chief Technology Officer, will lead our T&M business as General Manager and Senior Vice President.

I am pleased to announce that Scott Gibson, our Vice Chairman, will assume the duties of Chairman at our 2022 annual shareholder meeting. Scott’s recruitment and onboarding as a director in April 2021 was intended to further enhance the Board’s skills and expertise. I believe Scott’s industry and leadership experience is best suited to help the Company capitalize on exciting growth opportunities within the satellite, semiconductor and quantum computing sectors, as well as within 5G small cell and private network deployments. We are encouraged by the execution of our Board’s succession plan. We look forward to continuing the refresh of our strategic plans and evaluating opportunities to increase shareholder value during the ensuing months.”
