Recent Company Highlights
- Substantially completed our R&D efforts positioning OPT to increase our focus on delivering intelligent maritime solutions and services, particularly in the national security and defense markets so that we expect to achieve cash flow positive results in calendar 2025. To drive that growth, we also recently appointed Matt Burdyny to Chief Commercial Officer. Mr. Burdyny will report directly to the CEO.
- Appointed Admiral Victorino “Vic” G. Mercado (Retired) as a special advisor to the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”). We plan to leverage Vic’s more than 35-year career in the U.S. Navy and service at the Department of Defense to build on our momentum in providing intelligent maritime solutions to the U.S. Government and defense and security sectors, and carefully navigate the challenges of securing access to and protecting highly sensitive and confidential information.
- Received an additional volume order from Sulmara, a prominent player in offshore services, of WAM-V 16 uncrewed surface vehicles (USVs) making this the largest single order of WAM-Vs to date. The order, valued at $1.6 million, underscores OPT's commitment to providing innovative and sustainable solutions for the offshore industry. Due to demand, production is already underway to support and will allow for revenue recognition this fiscal year.
