While our new national purchasing agreements don’t guarantee us sales, the fact that we have broken through a major barrier to adoption is proving critical as we consistently win new business with these corporate clients as well as municipal clients. CupriDyne Clean consistently out-performs the competition and we love our clients as we work hand in hand with them to maximize its performance and value. Clyra also has a bright near term future and we are thankful for the continued support of our investors. We will report when Clyra’s FDA applications are on record. Shan Yong, PhD is another great addition to the BioLargo team. We continually strive to surround our world-class technology with world-class talent. The technical symposium is a resounding success as we present the successful results of our three commercial validation studies. The event is continuing is today, so we will report more details as soon as we are able. I encourage our stakeholders to read the entire quarterly report for a complete understanding of the highlights listed in this press release.”
