The company’s second quarter net loss grew from C$224,000 in 2019 to $1.85 million this year.

The company was candid about its poor performance, stating that ongoing international travel restrictions, brought on by the pandemic, will likely impact the company’s ability to conduct its business moving forward.

EnWave also stated that the the full-extent of the pandemic’s impact on its operation still remains uncertain and will depend on future developments.
