"WISeKey has been a long-term security partner of LEGIC," said Dr. Otto Eggimann, LEGIC's VP of operations and business units for Asia and the Americas, in a prepared statement, "and we are very happy to renew our collaboration by selecting WISeKey to secure our new LEGIC offering."

"We are very proud to be selected by LEGIC for this project," said Bernard Vian, WISeKey Semiconductor's managing director, in the prepared statememt. "This agreement is estimated to generate revenue of several million dollars for WISeKey, over the life of the project."
