Second quarter highlights

As previously projected, the biggest contributors to Q2 2017 revenue were glove based products and the toy relationship. The company still expects to deliver on approximately a million sensors in 2017 for the toy manufacturer.

Many of these glove applications relate to the VR/AR (virtual reality/augmented reality) market segment. This market segment is being driven by increasing market demand from B2B, gaming and military customers, among others. Some VR/AR partners include ManusVR, Virtual Motion Labs and CaptoGlove.

The medical and medical IoT device market segment has continued to provide consistent order volume. Q2 2017 has seen an increase in medical device related revenue contribution, and the company expects this to further increase in Q3 2017 and going forward. Some partners in the medical IoT space include 11Health, Neofect, Gloreha and YouReHab; all with differentiated products; many of which are focused on medical rehabilitation.

Flexpoint also has ongoing relationships with several resellers across diverse industries including Amazon, NoDNA, RobotShopKarlsson Robotics, SPI and Infusion Systems.

The company anticipates Q3 and Q4 revenues accelerating at a faster rate due to the number and size of purchase orders already received and other factors. The company remains on track for its goal of becoming cash flow positive during the next three to six months.

"The Company continues to concentrate its marketing resources on a limited number of customers that have the greatest potential to generate the most short-term revenue while still building relationships with our larger customers. Management anticipates revenues will increase as we continue to execute our long-term business plan and cultivate larger customer bases with our existing product offering. Therefore, management continues to work with larger companies and industries, and is hopeful that in the near future we will sign a long-term licensing or manufacturing contract," stated  Paul Sexauer, Flexpoint Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

Clark Mower, Flexpoint President added, "We received revenue from repeat orders from our existing customers, as well as design contract and development engineering. The majority of the revenue for this period came from production products. This is an important development as it leads to continued future growth."

The Company will host a conference call today, August 17th at 1:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m. MT to discuss the financial results and recent business developments. To participate in the call, please dial 530-881-1212 and enter ID pin 615-253-385#.
