Resonant Named ACG 101 “Most Innovative Company of the Year”

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — October 16, 2014 -- Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ:  RESN), a late-stage development company that is creating innovative filter designs for radio frequency, or RF, front-ends for the mobile device industry, was awarded the “Most Innovative Company of 2014 Award” by the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) 101 Corridor Chapter at its “Deals of the Year” banquet held Thursday, October 9 at the Westlake Village Inn, Westlake Village, California.

According to research firm, Navian, the RF filter market is estimated at $3.5 billion and growing rapidly. Mobile device original equipment and development manufacturers are challenged by the explosion in the number of filters needed for 4G networks.

Filters are used to select desired signals and reject unwanted signals, and are a critical component of the RF front-end of mobile devices, such as the iPhone and Android Smartphones. Resonant is using its patented and proprietary circuit design methods and tools to develop new classes of filter designs that will enable manufacturers to replace more costly filters with less expensive filters with similar functionality.

Chief Executive Officer, Co-Founder and Chairman Terry Lingren, “This has been a tremendous year of progress and success for the Resonant team. I would like to thank the members of ACG101 for their consideration and recognition of our efforts. Consumers’ nearly insatiable demand for greater connectivity and content will continue to drive carriers to expand the number of data bands. At Resonant, we will continue to pursue high quality solutions that are more economical so that consumers and manufacturers alike can benefit.”

“Resonant is a leading innovator in its business category and here in our region.  We are very pleased to present the 2014 Most Innovative Company Award to Resonant and were pleased to have them participate in our Deals of the Year Awards Banquet which benefitted the American Red Cross,” said Jeff Tillman, President of the ACG 101 Board of Directors.
