The revenue adjustment, and associated balance sheet entries, reflect the reversal of 86% of the adjustment to the fair value of the deferred revenue acquired with OpenFive. The adjustment to Goodwill reflects the change in the assumption of the fair value adjustment to the deferred revenue acquired with OpenFive. The change in R&D/Engineering expenses corresponds to the amortisation charge of Precise-ITC intangibles, amortised over four years instead of five.

In addition, there were four reclassifications. A reclassification of trade and other payables between non-current and current liabilities for an amount of US$8.2m and a reversal of a prepayment in trade and other receivables of US$0.9m. There was a reclassification between taxes receivable of US$4.4m resulting in the creation of a deferred income tax asset of US$2.7m and a reduction in the deferred income tax liability of US$1.7m. The final item was a reclassification of US$4.4m between current and non-current trade and other payables associated with the deferred compensation related to the acquisition of Banias Labs.

The changes listed above, including the recalculated income tax expense, have resulted in US$7.6m less profit for the year. Adjusted EBITDA has changed from US$53.8m (or 28% margin) to US$46.8m (or 25% margin).

All the changes above are non-cash items. Therefore, operating cash flow before tax remains unchanged at US$7.8m.

Alphawave Semi reiterates its FY 2023, mid-term and long-term outlook communicated at the Capital Markets Day on 13 January 2023. The Company expects 2023 revenue of US$340m to US$360m and adjusted EBITDA of approximately US$87m (or approximately 25% of revenue), which is at the mid-point of the revenue guidance range.
