By expanding our partnership with WiSA, we will be in a better position to leverage WiSA's resources and technological capabilities, while broadening potential distribution channels on a global scale. We look forward to working more closely with the association to enhance our offerings and delivering best-in-class solutions for our customers and retail partners."
