ASTROTECH REPORTS FISCAL YEAR 2019 FINANCIAL RESULTS

 

Austin, Texas September 27, 2019 – Astrotech Corporation (NASDAQ: ASTC) reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2019.

 

Astrotech’s 1st Detect subsidiary continues to generate interest following its official launch of the TRACER 1000™ explosives trace detector (ETD) on June 26, 2019, due to its advantages over current generation ETDs, including:

 

 

A virtually unlimited detection library – today’s ETDs can only detect a very limited number of compounds;

 

A near-zero false alarm rate – today’s ETDs are fraught with false positives caused by common household compounds;

 

A near 100% uptime – today’s ETDs have lengthy calibrations and bake-outs, often unprompted, at the most inopportune times.

 

“Fiscal 2019 was an excellent year in terms of product development and endorsement,” stated Thomas B. Pickens III, Chairman and CEO of Astrotech. “Development of the TRACER 1000 is now essentially complete as we shifted our focus toward certification testing in the airport market and achieved European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) certification for both checkpoint and cargo earlier in the year. It has also given us the opportunity to explore other market opportunities with our versatile core technology and we have found a significant opportunity in the agriculture market. We recently launched the AG-LAB-1000™, which is uniquely capable of solving a significant pain point, specifically in the hemp and cannabis market,” concluded Pickens.

 

On September 20, 2019, Astrotech announced that it launched Agriculture Technology Corporation (AG-TECH) and the AG-LAB-1000 series of mass spectrometers to address the needs of the agriculture market. The Company believes that pesticide detection continues to be a major issue for farmers, especially in the hemp and cannabis market where certain pesticides turn into cyanide and other harmful toxic and carcinogenic compounds when smoked. Jurisdictions where hemp and cannabis are legal are therefore increasingly requiring sophisticated trace detection analysis to ensure products do not contain illegal levels of certain pesticides. This analysis can take 5-8 days before results are available. While awaiting results, additional batches processed using the same equipment become contaminated, leading to potentially millions of dollars of wasted product. We believe that no other product currently exists on the market that can detect these pesticides in real-time like the AG-LAB-1000.
