IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Interlink Electronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: LINK), an industry-leading trusted advisor and technology partner in the advancing world of human-machine interface (HMI) and force-sensing technologies, today announced an investment gain realized in 2022 and disclosed its preliminary financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.

The Company realized a non-operating gain of approximately $2.45 million on a passive investment of approximately $6 million it made earlier in 2022 in public equity securities, for a return of over 40%. This gain more than offset the operating loss preliminarily estimated at $700,000 the Company incurred for the year on revenues of approximately $7.5 million and will help to fund the Company's investment in executive talent and its acquisition program.

"We invested heavily in executive talent in 2022, and this gain provides more than enough funding for those investments and for the previously-announced acquisition of KWJ Engineering and SPEC Sensors in December 2022," said Steven N. Bronson, Chairman, President, and CEO of Interlink Electronics. "We will continue those investments in 2023, which will impact our earnings, but we believe it's prudent to support our acquisition strategy of complementary sensor and printed electronics companies to accelerate our growth and increase long-term profitability."
