Note 1 - Business Organization, Nature of Operations
Energous Corporation (f/k/a DvineWave Inc.) (the “Company”) was incorporated in Delaware on October 30, 2012 (inception). The Company is a technology company focused on developing technology that can enable wire-free charging of electronic devices at a distance and with complete mobility. The Company is developing solutions that enable wire-free transmission of energy from a transmitter to multiple receivers at distances of up to fifteen (15) feet. The Company is developing multiple generations of transmitter and receiver application specific integrated circuit chips (“ASICs) whose designs will be licensed to customers, and that we believe will optimize our technology reducing size and cost, while increasing performance to a level that we believe will allow for them to be integrated into low-power devices, eliminating the need for a charging cord or pad to maintain charge. The Company submitted its first ASIC design for wafer fabrication in November 2013. Since then, the Company submitted transmitter and receiver ASIC designs to its wafer fabricator for production. Two of these ASICs were used to demonstrate its WattUp technology in prototypical consumer products in conjunction with its strategic partners at the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2015. Additional ASICs are under development and two of these ASICs have entered the fabrication stage.
On January 2, 2014, the board of directors and stockholders approved the name change for the Company to Energous Corporation from DvineWave Inc.
Effective March 26, 2014, pursuant to authority granted by the stockholders and the Board of Directors of the Company, the Company implemented a 1-for-3.99 reverse split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock (the “Reverse Split”). All share and per share information in these financial statements have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the Reverse Split.
