The Company reports that its subsidiary, Etherstack Wireless Ltd, will provide Samsung a license to existing technology for the purposes of assisting integration of the joint solution aimed at the telecommunications carrier market, as previously disclosed in the Global Teaming Agreement announcement in June 2020.
This initial US$1.2m license does not represent a sale of the solution to an end carrier customer, but instead is related to ongoing development and integration activities between the companies.
The companies are currently working on multiple carrier pursuits, and it is expected that initial carrier sales will occur during calendar 2021. These deals, subject to signing, would trigger additional license and support revenues and will be announced at that time.

Time to reconsider investments in Ehtherstack...
With links to the infamous Isignthis, I think people should be looking hard at their investment and ensuring they are comfortable with the business and future pospects.
I've not reached the the company but its a pretty big red flag for me.
