FREMONT, Calif., May 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enovix Corporation (“Enovix”) (Nasdaq: ENVX), a global high-performance battery company, today announced that it has begun customer sampling of its breakthrough EX-1M battery.

Initial EX-1M samples were built and tested at the company’s facility in Fremont for IoT and smartphone customers. Enovix plans to build a larger number of EX-1M samples from its Agility Line at Fab2 in Malaysia later in the second quarter of 2024.

“We set out on an ambitious plan last year to build a battery that would meet the demanding requirements of leading smartphone customers,” said Dr. Raj Talluri, President and CEO of Enovix. “With EX-1M now sampling, we are ushering in a new era of lithium-ion battery technology by utilizing a 100% active silicon anode to boost energy density and allow customers to keep up with a growing array of energy needs with the onset of AI.”

Given strong customer interest and the readiness of Fab2, Enovix has begun taking decisive actions to consolidate manufacturing of all silicon batteries to Malaysia by July. Doing so puts the company on a path to reduce its fixed costs by over $35 million annually, significantly reducing its capital needs and accelerating the path to profitability.

Said Talluri, “Enovix is committed to maintaining a strong financial profile and with our recent actions to reduce our operational cash burn by over a third, we believe we have significant runway that extends into 2026 to meet customer needs as we ramp manufacturing.”
