SatixFy Announces Full Year 2023 Results

Rehovot, Israel – March 29, 2024SatixFy Communications Ltd. (the “Company” or “SatixFy”) (NYSE AMERICAN: SATX), a pioneering force in next-generation satellite communication systems driven by in-house developed chipsets, has released its consolidated financial results for the full year period ended December 31, 2023. The Company has filed its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2023 (the “Annual Report”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and can be accessed on its website at

Financial Highlights for the Full Year 2023

  • Total Revenues: $10.7 million, reflecting a 1% increase compared to $10.6 million in 2022.
  • Gross Profit: $4.8 million, a 22% decrease from $6.1 million in 2022. The decrease in gross profit and margin due to the Company’s engagement in 2023 in projects which carry lower gross margins compared to 2022.
  • Operating Loss: $41.8 million, compared to $22.3 million for 2022. The increase was mainly attributed to higher Research and Development (R&D) costs, as described below.
  • Expenses Breakdown:
    • Research and Development (R&D): $29.1 million, compared to $16.8 million for 2022. The increase in R&D expenses was mostly driven by the significant effort the Company invested into the development of its space grades Application Specific Integrated Circuit (“ASICs”) in order to bring the ASICs to maturity. Research and development expenses were also affected by a net decrease in European Space Agency grants and tax credits and a decline in contributions from government support and grants, which all are recorded as offsets to R&D expenses.
    • Selling and Marketing: $2.9 million, compared to $2.3 million for 2022. The increase was primarily driven by increased participation in trade shows, related travel costs and a slight increase in payroll, and RSU grants.
    • General and Administrative: $14.6 million, compared to $9.2 million for 2022. The increase was primarily driven by the settlement of a legal proceedings with Alta Partners, LLC of $2.3 million, as well as an increase in legal costs, an increase of director and officer insurance expenses, and a provision for expected credit loss. This was offset by a decrease in bonuses to the chairman of the Company’s board of directors.
    • Finance expenses: $12 million, compared to $10 million for 2022. The increase was primarily driven by a $3 million interest expense recorded on the advanced payments from MDA Ltd. (“MDA”), offset by $1 million of currency fluctuation effects.
  • Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash and cash equivalents amounted to $14 million compared to $11.9 million as of December 31, 2022.

Management Commentary

Nir Barkan, Acting Chief Executive Officer of SatixFy, commented, “2023 was marked by strategic advancements and solid progress within our product development and customer engagements. The $60 million agreement with MDA has refocused SatixFy on its core competencies, fortifying a long-term business relationship with a leading satellite developer and providing us with advanced payments for sales of the Company’s cutting-edge space-grade ASICs. From a product standpoint, the progression of our Prime 2.0 and Sx4000 chips to advanced customer sampling stages, has brought us a significant step closer towards ultimate commercialization. Our success is due to our ongoing product development, with our products offering a highly compelling value proposition, with potential for significant capital expenditure savings, improved communication efficiencies and performance, enabling a broader coverage footprint across fewer satellites. “

“SatixFy is at a key inflection point in the industry, driven in-part by the fast-growing Low Earth Orbit (“LEO”) low-latency satellite market providing broad data coverage anywhere, anytime. We also believe that our Digital Beam Former is going to be a key component in the coming Direct to Device LEO constellations. We continue to focus on our R&D investments in order to maintain our leading edge and advance our satellite communication systems and chipsets.”
