Doron Arazi, CEO, commented: “I’m pleased to share that we had a very good 2022 in terms of the strength of our business, as reflected in our bookings. The second half of the year showed significant improvement in our revenue levels and profitability thanks to our relentless execution of our Growth Strategy and changing supply chain dynamics, which continue heading in the right direction.

We achieved 33.1% gross margin and a $3.2 million in operating profit in the fourth quarter 2022 on a non-GAAP basis. Our revenues and profits would have been even higher were it not for unforeseen outside events. A month into 2023, we are mostly caught up on our revenue shift from the fourth quarter 2022.

We are starting 2023 with a strong backlog and a positive operational momentum.”

Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may cause Ceragon’s future results or performance to differ materially from those anticipated, expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the continuing impact of the components shortage due to the global shortage in semiconductors, chipsets, components and other commodities, on our supply chain, manufacturing capacity and ability to timely deliver our products, which have caused, and could continue to cause, delays in deliveries of our products and in the deployment of projects by our customers, risk of penalties and orders cancellation created thereby, as well as profit erosion due to constant price increase, payment of expedite fees and costs of inventory pre-ordering and procurement acceleration of such inventory, and the risk of becoming a deadstock if not consumed; the continued effect of the global increase in shipping costs and decrease in shipping slots available to us, our supply chain and customers, which have resulted, and may continue to result in, price erosion, late deliveries and the risk of penalties and orders cancellation due to late deliveries; the impact of the transition to 5G technologies on our revenues if such transition is developed differently than we anticipated; the risks relating to the concentration of a major portion of our business on large mobile operators around the world from which we derive a significant portion of our ordering, that due to their relative effect on the overall ordering coupled with inconsistent ordering pattern and volume of business directed to us, creates high volatility with respect to our financial results and results of operations; the risks associated with our engagement with long term projects, which expose us to our customers’ default, insolvency, or other adverse effects on our customers’ ability to pay us, including the risk that our collection efforts relating to a significant debt from a single customer will not be successful for the full amount owed or on the anticipated timeframe or at all; the effect of the competition from other wireless transport equipment providers and from other communication solutions that compete with our high-capacity point-to-point wireless products; the risks relating to increased breaches of network or information technology security along with increase in cyber-attack activities, growing cyber-crime threats, and changes in privacy and data protection laws, that could have an adverse effect on our business;  the risks relating to the concentration of a significant portion of Ceragon’s expected business in certain countries and particularly in India, where a small number of customers are expected to represent a significant portion of our revenues; risks associated with any failure to meet our product development timetable, including delay in the commercialization of our new chipset; imposition of additional sanctions and global trade limitations in connection with Russia's invasion to Ukraine; risks relating to potential uprise or additional outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects on the global economy and markets and on us and on the markets in which we operate that are associated therewith; the effects of general economic conditions and trends on the global and local markets in which we operate and such other risks, uncertainties and other factors that could affect our results, as further detailed in Ceragon’s most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F and in Ceragon’s other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
