    Nanotechnology in General

    go down in price. Is this because you are
    shorting it? Or just kicking yourself that you didn't get
    in before the recent run which may, or may not,
    continue?

    Seems to me if you were LONG, you would encourage NANX
    by posting positive articles and info.

    See my
    next post for an example....

      Do you really think that "spin" on Yahoo message
      boards affects the price of stock?

      Do you really
      believe that our readers are better served by hype,
      rather than solid background information?

      Nothing
      has happened in NANX's universe to make the stock 4
      times more valuable than it was 2 months ago. Whether
      today's price or last November's is the more appropriate
      one I'm not in a position to say. What I do say is
      that if the reader wants good perspective on that
      their *potential* LONG TERM prospects, read the reports
      at the links I provided.

      When new people
      start showing up here in droves without a clue as to
      what the company actually does, who actually buys and
      uses their products, and what the difference is
      between NANX's business and those of others (e.g.,
      nanoelectronics lithography), it's scary.

      • From occasional visits since I first bought NANX
        last spring, I found this Board to be one of those
        rare species where civility prevails. Many of us are
        here to get information and learn the opinions of
        others, be they pro or con or neutral. It may be scary
        when uninformed people start showing up in droves, as
        you remarked, but what's really scary is the
        potential for an accompanying loss of civility. Whether or
        not you agree, it seems to me that there is some
        correlation between the sudden appearance of new faces on the
        scene and a rise in share price. I'll be very happy to
        see even more droves. Let's just hope they don't turn
        this Board into one of mindless chatter or worse, like
        some others I know of.

      • it. I understand what's going on here. YOU CAN't
        READ!

        Several contracts have been signed with revenues in
        millions to come and promises for more than that. Go back
        and read Dec.'s PR releases. OOOPS! I forgot! You
        can't read because you said, and I quote, "nothing has
        happened..."

        It's sad when a person cannot see the blatent
        contridictions in their comments, especially, when they are
        written down.

        You contradict the truth, my boy.
        Give it up!

        And by the way, Sow Long! I refuse
        to respond to any more ignorant comments.

    • Least, that's what he said in July. He also says
      the same in Oct. That's the next
      post.

      NANOPHASE ANNOUCES SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

      Burr
      Ridge, IL, July 22, 1999 � Nanophase Technologies
      Corporation (Nasdaq: NANX), a leader in engineering advanced
      materials using nanocrystalline compounds, today announced
      its second quarter 1999 results.

      For the
      quarter ended June 30, 1999, total revenue was $329,221,
      compared with total revenue of $218,178 for the same
      period in 1998. Second quarter 1999 revenue from product
      sales was $281,054 and other revenue was $48,167. The
      company reported a net loss for the period of $1,582,033,
      or $0.12 per share (fully-diluted), compared with a
      net loss in second quarter 1998 of $1,599,414, or
      $0.13 per share (fully-diluted). The company's per
      share loss in the second quarter of 1999 is based on
      approximately 12.7 million weighted average shares
      outstanding.

      On a year to date basis, during the six months ended
      June 30, 1999 the company reported a net loss of
      $3,157,935, compared with a loss of $2,486,814 for the same
      period in 1998. This is primarily attributed to
      increases related to selling, general and administrative
      expenses and recruiting and personnel expenses related to
      the company's recent restructuring.

      "In this
      quarter, Nanophase continues to feel residual effects of
      the company's past practices and 12-18 month
      time-to-market. We are, however, energized by our success
      implementing a new management team, restructuring and
      reskilling the company to affect a "solution provider"
      approach, and market and sales refocus" said Joseph Cross,
      president and chief executive officer. "This initial six
      months of the new management team has provided the
      foundation and generated the impetus to preparing Nanophase
      for 2000. As we continue to mature development
      projects, enter new business development opportunities, and
      decrease our time-to-market, we look forward to seeing the
      synergistic results of the combined efforts.

      "Now that
      we have reskilled and restructured the organization,
      our focus is on driving revenue for 2000. We do
      expect to see revenue growth in the fourth quarter of
      this year as a result of our refocused market attack
      but the more substantial growth should occur in 2000
      and beyond."

        NANOPHASE ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

        Burr
        Ridge, IL, October 27, 1999 � Nanophase Technologies
        Corporation (Nasdaq: NANX), a leader in engineering advanced
        materials using nanocrystalline compounds, today announced
        its third quarter 1999 results.

        For the
        quarter ended September 30, 1999, total revenue was
        approximately $365,000 compared with total revenue of
        approximately $181,000 for the same period in 1998. Third
        quarter 1999 revenue from product sales was approximately
        $315,000 and other revenue was approximately $50,000. The
        company reported a net loss for the third quarter 1999 of
        $1.3 million or $0.10 per share (fully-diluted),
        compared with a net loss in third quarter 1998 of $1.4
        million or $0.11 per share (fully-diluted). The company's
        per share loss in the third quarter of 1999 is based
        on approximately 12.7 million weighted average
        shares outstanding.

        During the nine months ended
        September 30, 1999, the company reported total revenue of
        $1.0 million compared with $1.1 million for the
        comparable 1998 period, and a net loss of $4.4 million or
        $0.35 per share compared with a net loss of $3.9
        million or $0.32 per share for the same period in 1998.
        The Company recognized a non-recurring charge of
        approximately $930,000 during the 1999 period relating to an
        organizational restructuring, composed largely of payments to
        former officers, legal and accounting fees, and
        recruiting and relocation costs. This expense, as well as
        the expenses relating to additional legal fees and
        salaries, was somewhat offset by savings gained through
        ongoing cost-cutting measures, including the
        organizational restructuring.

        "During the first half of
        this year, we recruited and rebuilt the company�s
        management team, implemented a new business model to deliver
        nano-based customer solutions, restructured and reskilled
        over 30% of the company�s infrastructure, and
        significantly strengthened our business development and sales
        capability," explained Joseph Cross, CEO.

        "The third
        quarter represents the first full quarter where all of
        these factors have been in place and began to function
        synergistically. We believe these changes are beginning to result
        in real measurable progress toward penetrating our
        target markets and developing additional business
        opportunities for 2000. We have initiated a number of product
        development projects that we believe will result in product
        manufacturing contracts. The time from an initial discussion
        with a potential customer application to mature
        manufacturing revenue has historically been 18-24 months.
        During the past months, we believe that we have reduced
        this to 12-18 months and we continue to work to
        further reduce this timeframe."

        Highlights for the
        quarter include:

        The Japanese patent office
        granted the company a basic technology patent concerning
        its method and apparatus for making nanostructured
        material, protecting the company�s technology.
        The U.S.
        Trademark and Patent Office has granted Nanophase
        registration for its "NanoGard" trademark for healthcare
        products.
        The company applied for registration of its
        "NanoShield" trademark for its innovative protective coatings
        in development.
        The U.S. Trademark and Patent
        Office has granted the company�s patent covering surface
        modification of nano particles which allows the company to
        tailor the surface chemistry of particles for a broad
        variety of electronic, optical and chemical behavior.

        Demonstrating the market�s perceived value of nanotechnology
        and the growing customer application interest,
        research materials sales increased 61% YTD over 1998.

        The company is developing a proprietary application
        for environmental catalyst and plans to begin the
        initial production stages during fourth quarter 1999. The
        company believes that this application could result in
        appreciable revenue during 2000.
