Management Comments

Commenting on the fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2023, Brian Haugli, President and Chief Executive Officer of SideChannel said, “In May 2023, we announced that our primary focus was to pursue positive cash flow from operations, and I am pleased to see our continued progress toward that goal. If the current trends continue, we expect to achieve this objective during this fiscal year. When we transition from burning cash to generating cash on a quarterly basis, I anticipate that we will renew our investments in marketing and selling activities.”

Our beta program is providing valuable feedback and insight that we intend to use in our go-to-market strategy for Enclave, which combines critical risk management tools supported by a simple, efficient management console.” said Haugli.
