Message from the President

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF EGIDE GROUP - OCTOBER  2017

Since September 2014, the Board has given me an opportunity to lead the company in our new strategic plan, which includes significant growth over the coming years

In 2017, we have successfully acquired the assets of Thermal Management Systems, LLC, and with them created a new company, Santier, Inc. This company enhances our portfolio of products by supplying thermal management products to key clients in our chosen markets. We also have seen our newly created High Temperature Co-fired Ceramic line in out Cambridge facility qualify on a number of programs with key clients. These developments will provide increased revenue streams for EGIDE, and increase the potential for profit and cash generation in the years to come.

We will work together to make the company the premier hermetic package supplier and grow to our new goal of 10% of the TAM.

Sincerely,

James F Collins

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
