Description of Business and Basis of Presentation [Abstract]  



The Company


Ondas Holdings Inc. (“Ondas Holdings,” the “Company,” “we,” or “our”) was originally incorporated in Nevada on December 22, 2014 under the name of Zev Ventures Incorporated. On September 28, 2018, we acquired Ondas Networks, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Ondas Networks”), changed our name to Ondas Holdings Inc., and Ondas Networks, became our sole focus and wholly owned subsidiary. The corporate headquarters for Ondas Holdings is located in Nantucket, MA and the offices and facilities for Ondas Networks are located in Sunnyvale, California.


We have two wholly owned subsidiaries: (i) Ondas Networks, our operating company, originally incorporated in Delaware on February 16, 2006 under the name Full Spectrum Inc., subsequently changed to Ondas Networks Inc. on August 10, 2018, and (ii) FS Partners (Cayman) Limited, a Cayman Islands limited liability company (“FS Partners”). We have one majority owned subsidiary, Full Spectrum Holding Limited, a Cayman Islands limited liability company (“FS Holding”), which owned 100% of Ondas Network Limited, organized in Chengdu Province, China. FS Partners and Ondas Network Limited were both formed for the purpose of operating in China. As of December 31, 2019, we revised our business strategy, and discontinued all operations in China. On June 2, 2020, Ondas Network Limited was deregistered by the authority of the Chengdu High-Tech Zone, Market Supervision Administration. Both FS Partners and FS Holdings had no operations during 2020 and 2021, and we are in the process of dissolving them and expect the process to be completed by the end of 2021.


Business Activity


Ondas Networks provides wireless connectivity solutions enabling mission-critical Industrial Internet applications and services. We refer to these applications as the Mission-Critical Internet of Things (“MC-IoT”). The Company’s wireless networking products are applicable to a wide range of MC-IoT applications which are most often located at the very edge of large industrial networks. We design, develop, manufacture, sell and support FullMAX, our patented, Software Defined Radio (“SDR”) platform for secure, licensed, private, wide-area broadband networks. Our customers install FullMAX systems in order to upgrade and expand their legacy wide-area network (“WAN”) infrastructure. Our MC-IoT intellectual property has been adopted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (“IEEE”), the leading worldwide standards body in data networking protocols, and forms the core of the IEEE 802.16s standard.


We sell our products and services globally through a direct sales force and value-added sales partners to critical infrastructure providers including major rail operators, commercial and industrial drone operators, electric and gas utilities, water and wastewater utilities, oil and gas producers and pipeline operators, and for other critical infrastructure applications in areas such as homeland security and defense, and transportation.


Our business consists of a single segment of products and services all of which are sold and provided in the United States and certain international markets.



We have incurred losses since inception and have funded our operations primarily through debt and the sale of capital stock. As of June 30, 2021, we had a stockholders’ equity of approximately $59,777,000, net short-term and long-term borrowings outstanding of approximately $0 and $300,000, respectively, and cash of approximately $58,550,000.


In December 2020, the Company completed a registered public offering of its common stock, generating net proceeds of approximately $31,254,000. In June 2021, the Company completed another registered public offering of its common stock, generating net proceeds of $47,523,583. We believe the funds raised in the December 2020 and June 2021 equity offerings, in addition to growth in revenue expected as the Company executes its business plan, will fund its operations for at least the next twelve months from the issuance date of these financial statements.


Our future capital requirements will depend upon many factors, including progress with developing, manufacturing and marketing our technologies, the time and costs involved in preparing, filing, prosecuting, maintaining and enforcing patent claims and other proprietary rights, our ability to establish collaborative arrangements, marketing activities and competing technological and market developments, including regulatory changes and overall economic conditions in our target markets. Our ability to generate revenue and achieve profitability requires us to successfully market and secure purchase orders for our products from customers currently identified in our sales pipeline as well as new customers. We also will be required to efficiently manufacture and deliver equipment on those purchase orders. These activities, including our planned research and development efforts, will require significant uses of working capital. There can be no assurance that we will generate revenue and cash as expected in our current business plan. We may seek additional funds through equity or debt offerings and/or borrowings under additional notes payable, lines of credit or other sources. We do not know whether additional financing will be available on commercially acceptable terms or at all, when needed. If adequate funds are not available or are not available on commercially acceptable terms, our ability to fund our operations, support the growth of our business or otherwise respond to competitive pressures could be significantly delayed or limited, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations. 




In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19") was identified and has resulted in increased travel restrictions, business disruptions and emergency quarantine measures across the world including the United States.


The Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations were impacted from the COVID-19 pandemic for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and the year ended December 31, 2020 as follows:


sales and marketing efforts were disrupted as our business development team was unable to travel to visit customers and customers were unable to receive visitors for on-location meetings; and


field activity for testing and deploying our wireless systems was delayed due to the inability for our field service team to install and test equipment for our customers.


In the first quarter of 2020, we reduced our business activity to critical operations only, and furloughed 80% of our workforce. Per orders issued by the Health Officer of the County of Santa Clara, our corporate offices and facilities were closed, except for functions related to the support of remote workers and product support related to the essential transportation sector. On May 13, 2020, we reopened our offices and facilities and as of December 31, 2020 we had no employees remaining on furlough. Of the 18 employees previously furloughed, 14 are currently employed by us.


The Company expects its business, financial condition and results of operations will be impacted from the COVID-19 pandemic during 2021, primarily due to the slowdown of customer activity during 2020 and 2021. Further, the COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing and remains an unknown risk for the foreseeable future. The extent to which the coronavirus may impact our business will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the coronavirus and its variants. As a result, the Company is unable to reasonably estimate the full extent of the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic on its future business, financial condition and results of operations. In addition, if the Company were to experience any new impact to its operations or incur additional unanticipated costs and expenses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, such operational delays and unanticipated costs and expenses could further adversely impact the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations during 2021.
