Sonim Announces Closure of SEC Investigation with No Enforcement Action
San Diego, Calif. (March 13, 2023) — Sonim Technologies (Nasdaq: SONM) today announced that it received a written notice from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) stating that the SEC has concluded its investigation as to Sonim and does not intend to recommend enforcement action. This notice was provided under the guidelines set forth in the final paragraph of Securities Act Release No. 5310.
“We are pleased to move forward from this legacy issue, which dated to Sonim’s initial public offering,” said Peter Liu, Sonim’s Chief Executive Officer. “Closure of this inherited SEC matter will also remove a source of legal expense, further reducing operating costs.”
“As a new management team, we remain fully focused on growing sales and executing a successful strategy to bring Sonim to profitability,” said Mr. Liu. “We have reported significant progress on these goals through the first nine months of 2022, as well as pre-announced expectations for continued revenue growth in the fourth quarter.”
Sonim previously announced that it anticipates fourth quarter 2022 revenue in excess of $24 million, representing sequential growth of at least 17% from revenue of $20.5 million in the third quarter of 2022 and year-over-year growth of at least 51% from revenue of $15.9 million in the fourth quarter 2021.
Sonim intends to report its full financial results on or about March 15, 2023.
