ASTROTECH REPORTS SECOND QUARTER OF FISCAL YEAR 2018 FINANCIAL RESULTS
Austin, Texas - February 8, 2018 - Astrotech Corporation (NASDAQ: ASTC) reported its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2018 ended December 31, 2017.

“In the second quarter of fiscal year 2018, we made further progress under the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement we previously signed with the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate Transportation Security Laboratory by demonstrating 1st Detect’s mass spectrometry-based explosives and narcotics detector, the TRACER 1000, to government personnel,” said Thomas B. Pickens, III, Chairman and CEO of Astrotech Corporation. “We also showcased the product at the Border Security Expo to our target audience of government, border, immigration, and law enforcement agencies. The TRACER 1000, we believe, will be a considerable improvement over the current generation of ion mobility spectrometry-based explosives trace detector instrumentation. We anticipate deploying in airport security, to keep our borders safe from terroristic threats, and to help combat the opioid epidemic. We are currently working on attaining certification of our product with the Transportation Security Administration.

“In addition, in the fiscal second quarter, Astral Images was chosen by a large post-production film company to remove defects and restore a motion picture. Astral continues to be positioned to lead the 4K UHD/HDR conversion and restoration of film as global adoption of 4K UHD/HDR televisions ramps up and demand for 4K HDR content and services grows,” Mr. Pickens concluded.

Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Highlights
Revenue, costs of goods sold, SG&A, and R&D are expected to continue to fluctuate based on the timing of projects.
Revenue was $41 thousand, which was generated from a software license agreement with a large post-production film company to correct defects and restore one film.

Gross profit was $17 thousand, or 41%, for the second quarter of fiscal 2018.

At December 31, 2017, cash and investments were $9.2 million, and there was no debt.
